Women are not allowed to visit Graveyard or Mazaars. It has been said by Holy Prophet.

men and women both must not visit mazars as they do the acts of shirk there asking the saints/dead saints to listen to their supplications

Is it permissable to drink a glass of wine even though you do not get intoxicated from it?

My research on the subject has brought to light two categories of people who go to 'mazars'(graves of those who are considered to be awliya of allah)

Category 1. Those who very well know that those in the graves are in a different plane called barzakh from where they can neither hear us nor can be communicated by us.

Such people visit the Mazars to send their Salams to the person in the grave and ask Allah to increase their comforts in barzakh and later in heaven for all that they have done to humanity. They also ask Allah some personal favours for having come all the way and prayed for the 'awliya' at the Mazar.

They believe that Allah would be pleased with such an act on their part and solve their worldy problems.

Such an act is not recomended in Islam and hence is an innovation (bidah).

Category 2. are those who believe that the people in the grave can hear and communicate with you as well as intercede with Allah on your behalf to get your present worldly problems solved.

Such an act is Shirk.

Well, we have to understand that when we visit shrine or mazaar we should not make supplication to the deceased. As long as we do not violate the basic principle of tawheed I see no reason why we can't visit a shrine. We can go there out of shear respect for these great people and make prayer for their salvation. We do the same when we visit prophet's grave in Madina!

salam lofty; nice to c u back~after a while though how was your break.
I think Madina is different.There visitors are cecked persistently by watch-dogs. Any shirk-resembling act,even moaning or weeping near the rauza mubarak,and out you go !
In India & Pakistan , Srilanka, Bangladesh and similar areas, no such check is available. Literacy rate amongst the general visitors is tremendously low. Hence it's the state's duty to either educate the people or restrict such visits and open shrines.

What? You pray for the salvation of the Prophet?

quote:

Meaning of Salvation: Literature & Language > Dictionaryn.

1. Preservation or deliverance from destruction, difficulty, or evil.

2. Deliverance from the power or penalty of sin; redemption.

Where is it prescribed for a Muslim to Pray for the Salvation of the Prophet?

Thanks for that clarification. Jazakallahu khair.

Not only your mother, a large number of the Muslims have been used to saying in their supplications for centuries such things as:

'O Allaah by the right of your Prophet...,' or

'by the right of the Sacred House...forgive me.;

'O Allaah by the right of the Awliyaa and the pious, and so and so etc.' Or

'O Allaah by the honour of the men of Allaah to You, and by the honour of those in whose presence we are, and under whose assistance we exist, relieve us and the distressed from all distress'

It is because of misinterpretation of the following Verse of the Qur'an.

Allah says in the Qur’aan:

“O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah and fear Him. Seek the means of approach (al-Waseelah) to Him, and strive hard in His Cause as much as you can. So that you may be successful.”[Soorah al-Maidah (5): 35]

Al-waseelah in the present context means that you draw near to Him by obedience to Him and through actions that are pleasing to Him. (as explained by Ibn Abbas RA and Qatadah RA and recorded by Ibn Kathir)

It does not mean directly supplicating to the dead saints.

It also does not mean seeking ‘Tawassul’ through the status and honor of the Prophets and saints,

as these two interpretations are inventions of Sufis.

Tawassul in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah:

The correct means of Tawassul are three…

1. Tawassul by means of Allah’s Beautiful Names,

2. Tawassul by means of righteous deeds of the supplicant and,

3. Tawassul by means of a supplication made by a righteous (living) person.

For a detailed explanation of these three methods in the light of Qur'an and Sunnah, please click on the following link.


http://www.ahya.org/tjonline/eng/07/01Waseelah.html

Please read and understand the matter thoroughly and then try to explain to your mother. Insha Allah she will agree with you.

If the link does not work please inform me so that I shall copy and paste the Verses and Ahadith in support of the above three approved methods of Tawassul Insha Allah.

Slaam H Khan,
My question to you would be that why we as muslims when performing Hajj or Umra kiss the black stone. I assure you when a non muslims see this act they straight away believe that it is the stone which is being worshipped. I am told it is mentioned in a hadith that the prophet PBUH kissed the stone when installing it and it is a sunna. However my question would be why would islam allow a act which emulates what the kufar use to do and secondly I have seen many ppl from different countries who believe that stone is now black because it sucks the sins of the muslims. Astakhferulla, we are giving a attribute of Allah which is forgiveness to a stone. They claim it is from heaven. I assure I have seen the stone very closely and if the stones in heaven are like that then one wonders how beautiful the heaven would be.

I have my doubts on this practice and I believe it was used nothing more then a marker to start your tawaf. please give your comments
