Prayers & Duties >> Death & Funeral

Question # : 32712


Some of deobandis also visit on Mazars of Hazrat Nizamuddin., Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti etc.etc.
They give the excuse that " we only visit there to read Fatiha upon them not like bareilwis who are doing Shirk.
Hindus visit there and do totally wrong things.They consider THEM the God and ask THEM to fulfill their desires.
Bareilwees also do wrong things alongwith apreciating the hindus to do Kufr activities instead of stopping the Hindus to perfomr Kufr activities.
My question is that:
1. Should we visit the Mazars in that atmospheres?
2. whether we are doing wright to go there to read surah fatiha upon THEM?
3. whether we are not encouraging when standing with them at Mazars where Hindus are doing Kufr and Muslim Bareilwees are doing Shirk?
4. Should we not avoid these places and inspite of that we should visit our Kabristans to read surag fatiha upon our Buzurgs?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1018/854/B=1432)

It is lawful to go to the grave of pious elders to read Fatiha etc, and if possible, one should try to stop the bida'h and nonsense done there. It does not imply favouring the Hindu practices and the wrong practices of Barelvis. It is good to do isal-e-sawab for common people by going to the graveyard and reading something.

Allah knows Best!
