Don’t make tawaf around graves!

Book: Ilal ush sharae p 276

Author: Sh. Saduq

– حدثنا أبي رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن محمد بن ابى عمير، عن حماد عن الحلبي، عن ابى عبد الله عليه السلام قال: لا تشرب وأنت قائم ولا تطف بقبر ولا تبل في ماء نقيع فانه من فعل ذلك فأصابه شئ فلا يلومن إلا نفسه ومن فعل شيئا من ذلك لم يكن يفارقه إلا ما شاء الله.

(Chain) from Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam): Don’t drink when you stand, AND DON’T MAKE TAWAF AROUND THE GRAVES, and don’t piss into the standing water. The one who would do this, would affect with (some)thing. And let him don’t blaim (anyone) except himself, and who would do that, it wouldn’t leave it, except what Allah wish.

Haj wouldn’t be completed without visiting aimma (or graves).

Ibn Babaweyh al-Qummi, shaykh of shias – as-Saduq in his “Ilal ush-Sharae” (2/450) narrated that Imam Jafar said:

 إذا حج أحدكم فليختم حجه بزيارتنا لان ذلك من تمام الحج .

If one of you would make a haj, let him finish his haj with our visitation, that is from completeness of haj.

Prophet, Sahabah and Ahl Al-Bayt about praying at/near graves – WISDOM SERIES

Al-Mustafa blocked every path leading to Shirk to Protect Tawheed. His companions followed his footsteps, so did his progeny. Yet, those who CLAIM to follow his progeny did the EXACT of what the Prophet (peace be upon him) had ordered!

He even forbad us to take his grave as a place of worship (NOTE: His – peace be upon him – grave is actually NOT part of the Prophet’s Mosque. Proof >>>), yet the Mushrikoon of today have taken the graves of Imams/”Ayatollah’s” etc. as places of worship!

Ali Abtahi about visitation of Husayn

We have already posted shia hadith that visiting of grave of Husayn is equal to visiting Allah on His Throne.

Now we would like to present to you quote from shia author Saeed Ali al-Wahid al-Abtahi al-Isfahani.

In his book “Ziyaratul Ashura wal Atharuha Ajabiyah” (Darul Muhsin, Egypt, p 11), he said:


Yes,  this how it is prescribed to be visitation of imam al-Husayn (alaihi salam), which as it come from them (alaihuma salam) IS EQUAL TO VISITING ALLAH ON HIS THRONE.
