Burying the Muslims and disbelievers in the same cemetery
Question:

Over in America they bury the disbelievers and the Muslims in the same cemetery, yet the Prophet (Sallaallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: ((if you pass by the cemetery of the mushrikeen….)) so how do we implement this hadeeth in such circumstances?
Answer:

I do not know of a prohibition concerning this, and nor do I know of any proof for it being obligatory for the Muslim to be buried in a particular cemetery and that the disbeliever is buried in another cemetery. As for what has come concerning the mention of the deceased being harmed by his disbelieving neighbour – then its authenticity is to be looked into.
