بسم الله و الحمد لله الذي رفع راية التوحيد إلى يوم الدين, و الصلاة و السلام على إمام الموحدين و قائد المتوكلين, نبينا و سيدنا محمد و على آله الطيبين و صحبه الغر الميامين, و بعد:
Here’s a compilation (of Shia and Sunni) SAHIH (authentic) narrations about the prohibition of erecting structures over graves, venerating graves, kissing them etc. Many Shias are not even aware that these reports exists in their books, this might be due to the allergy their scholars have when it comes to Tawhid. Shia scholars usually do not mention the narrations we are going to present you, and if they do (only due to pressure of the Internet that has exposed their religion), they (as usual) come up with abstract and far-fetched interpretations to explain the monothestic narrations that are deeply buried somewhere in their Madhhab (yes, even in their Madhhab, despite all the lies they have attributed to the Ahl al-Bayt) away in order to secure their money-machines, which you will soon find out are the exravagant palace+5* looking tombs, shrines and mausoleums.
Shaykh of shias, as-Saduq narrated in his book “Man la yahdurhul faqih” (1/187): Continue reading
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.
One of the first books that Shaykh al-Albaanee penned down was the work Taking Graves as Mosques.
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.
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!
Hatib al-Baghdadi narrated in his Tarih Baghdad via chain: Qadi al-Husayn ibn Ali al-Saymari – Umar ibn Ibrahim ibn Ahmad al-Muqri – Makram ibn Ahmad – Umar ibn Ishaq ibn Ibrahim that Ali ibn Maymun said him:
I heard Shafi say: “I swear I seek the blessing of Abu Hanifah and come to his grave every day, whenever I have a certain need I pray two rakahs then I come to his grave and ask Allah Most High for my need at his grave and little time passes until it is fulfilled”.
Sheikhana Albani in “Silsila ad-Daifa” (1/31) said: “This narration is weak rather it is false. For verily Umar ibn Ishaq ibn Ibrahim is unknown, and he isn’t mentioned in any books of Rijaal..”
Sheikhul Islam weakened this report in “Iqtida Siratul-Mustagim” p 165.
Imam of hanafis of his time, al-Alusi said regarding this report: “This is a lie and it is obvious that it is a lie to anyone who has knowledge of transmission, because when ash-Shafi came to Baghdad there was no grave present in Baghdad at that time that was turned for dua whatsoever. Rather, Abu Hanifah wasn’t well known during his time and ash-Shafi had visited Hijaz, Yemen, Sham, al-Iraq, Egypt which were all places wherein the graves of the Prophets, the Sahabah and the Tabiin were to be found and all of these were better than Abu Hanifah and other scholars of his level. So why dua only be to made to ABu Hanifah? Furthermore, the companions of Abu Hanifah who met him such as Abu Yusuf, Muhammad, Zufar, al-Hasan ibn Ziyad and others their like were all not known to go to the grave of Abu Hanifah and dua there. Ash-Shafi made expressly clear in some of his books that it’s disliked to exalt and glorify graves out of fear of the fitnah that it would lead to. The one who popularised the likes of these stories are those who have scant knowledge and Deen and these stories are only transmitted from those who are unknown”. See “Fath al-Mannan” pp 372-373.
