Muslim cemeteries are usually modest in appearance. Markers are usually simple headstones that may be in the form of a ball on top of a pole for males and a flat board for females. Placing flowers on the grave does not benefit the deceased in any way. Rather, that money be given to the poor and needy as charity on behalf of the deceased.

A bájosan elhanyagolt muszlim temetők hangulata békés - Mohamed tiltja a temetőkertek látogatását. Fehér, turbános vagy fezes sírköveket állítanak a férfiaknak, néha a fez pirosra van festve. A nők sírköve csak egyszerű, feliratos kő.
