As-Salamu `alaykum. A friend of mine keeps on visiting her cousin's grave saying that she is trying to deal with the loss of such a close relative. My question is, does Islam advise and encourage people to visit graves and recite the Qur’an there?
Respected sheikh ,As-Salamu'alaikum,I would like to ask you about awliyas?Who is an awliya?Is it right to visit the Dharghas which most of asian muslims do?most of asian countries we can see people build the kubr of pious people whome died and pay respect.mostly ladies.
Scholars of Islam, As-Salamu `alaykum. Are women permitted to visit the graves of their parents and other relatives? I heard some scholars say that they are not permitted to do so, but I don’t know if they have any proofs for such a view. My own understanding is that `A’ishah, the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings be on him) visited her brother’s grave. Can you comment on this issue?
As-Salamu `Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh. Dear scholar, I have a question concerning the punishment of grave. As we know when one is dead his body will be consumed (i.e. eaten by worms, scorpions, snakes, etc.) Except for the prophets (peace and blessings be upon them). Our prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the body of Prophets.” Will we feel pain when worms, scorpions, etc. consume our body or is it going to be in a way that we don’t feel it?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. My husband was buried in a cemetery where there are Muslim and non- Muslim graves. The graves of Muslims are leveled with the ground. What is the ruling on people carving names and Qur’anic verses on the graves, which might be stepped on? Jazakum Allah khayran.
