My question is regarding building mosques on graves. Verse 21 of Sura al-Kahf says: Behold, they dispute among themselves as to their affair. Some said: Construct a building over them. Their Lord knows best about them. Those who prevailed over their affair said: Let us surely build a place of worship over them. (Q 18:21)
Does this ayah, tells us that we can build the mosque on graves of pious people?
Also, living abroad, is it preferable for Muslim to be buried in only a Muslim graveyard or does it not matter that non-Muslims are also buried there?
I am a student at a famous university in Lahore. In my university the element of atheism and nonconformist is getting stronger each day.

Is it correct that the Prophet (sws) answers those who send blessings on him in the grave. I have been told that the Prophet (sws) himself has said that whenever someone invokes Allah’s blessings for him, Allah returns the soul to his body until he replies to his salutation.

When we visit the grave of prophet (sws) we say assalaamu alaykum yā ayyuhā al-Nabi (Peace be upon you O Prophet (sws) as if he is alive or in front of us. My question is what we can say when visiting the graves of other pious people called awliya of Allah? Can we address them in a similar wording or we should say something like this as-salamu-alaikum ya ahl al-kubur (Peace be upon you O…
What are the religious rulings about opening a grave or removing a body?
What supplication did the Holy Prophet (sws) use to recite while visiting a graveyard?
I was listening to one of the scholars in Pakistan. He said that before prophet (sws) died, he went to the tomb / graves of the martyrs of Uhad. He said that this hadith has consensus and is present in reliable ahadith books. The speech was in the context of visiting the graves of Aulia and Martyrs.
Please give me reference of the hadith which says that in the days of the Prophet (sws), women were initially stopped from visiting the graves because they used to vociferously wail. Once the women had learned to restrain themselves at such places, they were allowed to visit the graveyards.
