A rather strange question, What is the importance of being buried after death than to be cremated? My cousin passed away this Monday, and it was not easy to find a grave yard with an empty ground for a new grave. With the population explosion it has become difficult to find a place for a new cemetery.
What is the Islamic perspective on cremation vs burying a body. According to some that burial in cemeteries saturates the ground with poison. Also some people dislike the idea of decaying slowly. Some think that cemeteries are a poor use of land, and that cremation is a more ecological choice.
