In Islam is there a tradition to light a candle for a person who died, or maybe while having zihara (presnce at certain time in the tomb of a person and praing there)?

  • Lighting a candle does not have any Islamic significance, although some Muslims may have adopted the culture to do so.

No such thing in the Qur'an and sunnah to my knowledge, so avoid it
