Candles in the tombs


Is there any law prohibiting, or allowing, lighting(light up) candles in the Tzadikim tombs, or for a person who died?



There are people that light candles in the tomb of tzaddikim as an illuy nishama, or at the grave of relatives. The reason for this is that a person’s soul is compared to a candle. Therefore people light candles in memory of the departed souls.

Best wishes
