Traveling to visit the prophet's grave is Shirk?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Wahhabis say, traveling to visit the prophet's grave is Shirk and prohibited.

Visitation of the prophet's grave (Ziarah) is recommended in Islam.

Allamah Shirbini al_Shafiei says, Visitation of the prophet's grave is Sunnah, because the prophet said, whoever comes to visit me and no request urged him to travel except visiting me, I would be his intercessor on the Day of resurrection. (It is narrated as well in Assaha Al_Ma'thourah by Ibn Sokun)

In Sahih Bukhari, Imam Bukhari narrated that prophet said, whoever beside my grave recites Salawat to me, Allah commands an angle to convey the Salawat to me and I would be his intercessor on the Day of resurrection.

So the visitation of the prophet's grave is one of the best deeds and makes you closer to God.

Mughni Al_Muhtaj, v2, p 238.

When Ibn Taymiyyah the man who formed the basis of Wahhabism died his followers drank the water used to wash(Ghosl) his corpse for blessing, and now they visit his grave. Visiting the prophet's grave is shirk in their eyes but visiting Ibn Taymiyyah and drinking the water used for washing his body is allowed. This is very paradoxical.

The hypocrisy is unreal.

The Prophet (sawa) and his family (as) would visit the graves of the martyrs, so what's wrong with us visiting them?

I didn't said it is wrong to visit the graves of Imams(as) or prophet(sawa).

What I said means that the wahhabis who says it is haram, do it themselves :), they even did something insane and that's drinking the water that was used to wash the corpse of their founder.

I didn't say that you were against this, I was agreeing with your point.

Some background info- related to the topic- Phase One-Start of P.W

*****

"Wahhabis and The Renovation of Graves of Awliya Allah

Amongst the matters about which the Wahhabis are most sensitive is the matter of renovation of graves and construction over the graves of Prophets, Imams and the pious ones.

This matter was at first initiated by Ibn Taymiyya and his famous student Ibn al-Qayyim and they gave their verdicts (fatawa) in prohibiting the construction of a structure and the necessity of its destruction.

Ibn al-Qayyim in his book Zad al-ma’ad fi huda khayr al-‘ibad1 says as such:

يجِب هدم المشاهد التي بُنِيَت على القبور، ولا يجوز إبقاءها بعد القدرة على هدمها وإبطالها يوماً واحِد

It is obligatory to destroy the structure constructed over the grave and after gaining power for their destruction it is not permissible to reinstate them even for one day.

In the year 1344 AH when the Sa’uds had gained control over Mecca, Medina and its surroundings, they planned a pretext for destroying the graves of Baqi’ and the traces of household and companions of the Holy Prophet (s). By getting verdict (fatwa) from the scholars of Medina they wanted to pave the way for demolition and preparing the minds of the people of Hijaz who were never in favour of such action.

For this reason they sent the Chief Judge of Najd, Sulayman bin Bulayhid towards Medina for the purpose of deriving benefit from the scholars of that place regarding this matter. Thus he planned the questions in such a manner that its answers (as per the viewpoint of the Wahhabis) were hidden in the questions itself. And in this way he declared to the muftis that their replies should match the answers which had come in the questions; otherwise they would be called as polytheists and be killed if they would not repent.

The questions and answers were published in the newspaper Umm al-Qura in Mecca in the month of Shawwal 1344 AH.2 As a result of this publication, a severe reaction took place among the Muslims mainly Sunnis and Shi’as because they were aware that after taking the verdict (fatwa) even if it was by way of force, the destruction of graves of the leaders of Islam would commence.

Incidentally, after taking the verdict from fifteen scholars of Medina and publishing it in Hijaz, the destruction of the traces of the household of the Prophet (s) began on the 8th of Shawwal of the same year. The entire traces of Ahl al-Bayt (‘a) and the companions of the Holy Prophet (s) disappeared and the valuable properties of the shrine of the Holy Imams (‘a) at Baqi’ were plundered and the graveyard of Baqi’ was turned into a heap of dung which would fill one with horror while looking at it.

Now we will mention some of the questions so that it becomes clear as to how the answers had been placed in the question itself. .....

Phase two of P.W

"By using the words of shirk (polytheism) and mushrik (polytheist) as an excuse, they strike down the respect and honour of the awliya and in this manner, restrain the people from honouring them in any possible manner (tongue, thoughts, expressions, actions etc) and to the extent that they consider all these actions (in consideration of the services of the awliya Allah) to be polytheism and label them as polytheists. They have such a severe enmity with the awliya Allah that any kind of respect manifested towards them will very much annoy them.

Now it is time to talk and discuss about ziyara of grave of the Holy Prophet (s) from Islamic proofs and reasoning’s....
