Hadith Explanation

Moving Deceased from One Place to Another

Jabir bin Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) said: “We were moving the slain on the Day of Uhud in order to bury them, and the caller (announcer) of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) came and said: ‘The Messenger of Allah is commanding you to bury the slain where they fell.’ So we took them back.” [Sahih - Sunan Abu Dawud]

Moving the deceased from one place to another after burial is not desirable. There is, however, no harm in moving the deceased to another place before burial. As for the Shuhada (martyrs), it is desirable to bury them at the very place they met their martyrdom (Shahadat).
