Importance of a Prophet’s Grave (Hadith No. 427)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 426 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 427:

Narrated ‘Aisha and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:

When the last moment of the life of Allah’s Apostle came he started putting his ‘Khamisa’ on his face and when he felt hot and short of breath he took it off his face and said, “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” The Prophet was warning (Muslims) of what those had done.

Yes, it’s important to pay a visit to Prophet (SAW)’s grave when you visit Madinah. But doing wild things with all things related to his grave is just plain crazy. Rubbing yourself with the ‘jaliyan‘ and kissing everything won’t get you the blessings that you think you’ll get. Prophet (SAW) sternly admonished his ummah to not take his grave as a shrine after him. I see the Saudi government doing as much as they can to obey him. Help them do it! Go easy on the walls and stones when in Masjid Nabwi. That’s just material. The man you’re trying to reach dies long time ago, may Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him. The one way you can make him happy and proud of you is to follow him. Do that. InshaAllah.

Wassalam.
