someone born in Muslim family but when grow adult he will be buried Islamic way or not if he …
1. Pronounced himself as atheist
2. Not pronounced himself as atheist but pronounced as mankind his religions not in any religion


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

A person who was born in a Muslim family and is a Muslim after puberty, if he dies, he must be buried in the Islamic way and in a Muslim graveyard.

  1. But if after puberty he declares himself an atheist and is really an apostate then he will not be buried in a Muslim cemetery.
  2. If there is any doubt about his atheism, he is considered a Muslim

May Allah(swt) grant you success
