SHRINES!!! Money Making Business

SHRINE!!! It is clearly a money making business and Shaytans tool to mislead mankind!

There is clear orders of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to demolish graves (shrine) if its more than a hand span tall, with tons of evidence against all shrines which is clear as day!

Many Hanafi scholars have also voiced their opinions against the shrine based upon evidences!

Saeed bin Al-Musayyib reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said :

“You should not undertake a special journey to visit any place (of worship) other than the three Masjids: the Sacred Masjid of Makkah, this masjid of mine (in Madinah), and Al-Aqsa Masjid (in Jerusalem).”

‘A’isha (Radeyallahu Anha) reported :

Umm Habiba and Umm Salama made a mention before the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) of a church which they had seen in Abyssinia and which had pictures in it. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: When a pious person amongst them (among the religious groups) dies they build a place of worship on his grave, and then decorate it with such pictures. They would be the worst of creatures on the Day of Judgment in the sight of Allah.

Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians that they took the graves of their prophets as masjids. She (‘A’isha) reported: Had it not been so, his (Prophet’s) grave would have been in an open place, but it could not be due to the fear that it may not be taken as a masjid (mosque).

I stand acquitted before Allah that I took any one of you as friend, for Allah has taken me as His friend, as he took Ibrahim (alaihi salaam) as His friend. Had I taken any one of my Ummah as a friend, I would have taken Abu Bakr as a friend. Beware of those who preceded you and used to take the graves of their prophets and righteous men as places of worship, but you must not take graves as masjids; I forbid you to do that.

The testimony of As-Shafi’i

Imam ash-Shafii said: “I prefer that the soil used for a grave be no more than that dug for that grave. I like to see a grave raised above the ground the length of a hand or so. I prefer not to erect a structure over a grave or to whitewash it, for indeed this resembles decoration and vanity, and death is not the time for either of these things. I have never seen the graves of the Muhajirin or Ansar plastered. I have seen the Muslim authorities destroying structures in graveyards, and I have not seen any jurists object to this.”[Kitabul Umm]

Imam ash-Shaafi’i said:

“I detest that a creature [of Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala)] be sanctified to a degree that his tomb becomes like a masjid [to which Salaat is performed] the thing that leads people astray.” [Al-’Umm (Vol. 1, Pp. 246)]

Statements from the Hanafi Scholars on Shrine :

“It is prohibited to strengthen (or cement, reinforce) the graves.”[Kitab al-athar, Imam Muhammed]

Imam Sarkhasi says in al-Masbut:

“Do not reinforce the graves because its forbiddance is proven from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wasallam.”[Al-Masbut by Imam Sarkhasi v.2, p.26]

Qadhi Khan says in his Fatawa:

“The graves should not be strengthened and neither should tombs and structures be built over them because its negation has been related from Abu Hanifah.”[Fatawa Qadhi Khan, v.1 p.194]

Imam Kasani says:


“It is detestable to strengthen the graves and Imam Abu Hanifah considered it detestable to build tombs and similar structures over the graves. It contains wastage of wealth. Whereas there is no harm in sprinkling of water over the grave but it is related from Imam Yusuf that even sprinkling of water is detestable because the grave cements due to it.”[Badai’ as-Sinai’ by Imam Kasani v.1 p.320]

Mulla Ali Qari al-Hanafi writes:

“The prohibition of lighting up lamps upon the graves has come because it is from the wastage of wealth, and because in them are the signs of Hellfire and because it contains glorification of the graves.” [Murqah of Mulla Al Qari]

Qadhi Ibrahim writes mentioning the foundations of those who worship graves (shrine):

“Nowadays some deviant people have started making Hajj of the graves (shrine) and have established manners (or rituals) for it. And from those matters that oppose the religion and Shari’ah is that people express helplessness and humility near the graves, and light lamps upon them. To offer Chadar upon the graves (shrine), to assign a guard for them, to kiss them and to seek provision and children near them, all these matters have no proof from the Shari’ah Islamiyyah.” [Ja’ al-Haq p.302]

Allamah Haskafi al-Hanafi says:

“Those offerings and vows that are taken by the masses upon the graves, be they in the form of cash or oil, then upon consensus it is falsehood and forbidden.” [Darral Mukhtar by Haskafi v.2, p.139]

The author of Al-Mughni said:

“It is not permissible to build masjids around graves because of the statement of the Prophet, (peace and blessings be upon him) ‘May Allah curse the women who visit graves and those who build masjids (shrine) and place lights over them.”’ (Reported by Abu Daw’ud and Nasa’i)

1. Hazrat Jabbir [r.a] narrated that Prophet had forbidden … from building structures (shrine) and sitting over the graves (shrine).

[Muslim, Tirmidi, Mishkaat]

Imam Nawawi [r.h] writes in the sharah of this hadeeth:

“To build a structure over the the grave if its owned, then its makrooh and if its common maqbara [shrine] then it’s haram. It has been clearly mentioned by Imam Shafi [r.h] and others and Imam Shafi [r.h] said in his Kitaab al-Umm that I saw the Imams in Makkah ordering the removal of the buildings (shrine) over the graves and this is supported by the hadeeth.”

[Sharh Saheeh Muslim vol 1 page 312]

2. Imam Muhammed bin Hasan [r.h] says:

“It is makrooh to make the graves solid…because Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] had forbidden this and this is our madhab and this is also the view of Imam Abu Hanifa [r.h].”

[Kitaab al-Athaar Imam Muhammed page 96-97]

Note: When the word “Makrooh” is used by Imam Abu Hanifa [r.h] and the salaf, it means haram and makrooh-e-tahreemi.

3. It says in Fatawa Alamgeeri [r.h]:

“To build a strucure over the grave is makrooh”.

4. Allamah ibn Abideen [r.h] says:

“I am not aware of anyone who has allowed of building the structure [over the graves].”

[Shaami vol 1 page 101]

5. Qadi Sanaullah Pani Pati [r.h] says:

“To build large structures over the graves of Awliya and to lighten the candles etc are haram.”

6. Hazrat Abul Hiyaj al-Assadi [r.h] says: [he was an officer in the army of Hazrat Ali [r.a],

Hazrat Ali [r.a] told me that should’nt I send you for a task that Prophet Muahmmad [peace and blessings be upon him] sent me for, and that is to not leave any picture, statue, and dont leave any grave but to level it to the ground.”

[Muslim, Tirmidi, Mishkaat]

Note: Here to level it to the ground means the length that is prescribed by the Sharia.

7. Mullah Ali Qari [r.h] went as far to say:

“It is wajib to demolish the the structures over graves even if its masjid

8. Imam Syed Muhammed Alusi [r.h] says:

“ is wajib to remove the high graves and large structures over the graves because they are more dangerous than Masjid Zarrar…and it is wajib to remove the lightening that is done over the graves [of Awliya]..”

[Rooh-al-Maani vol 15 page 219]

9. Hafiz ibn Qayyam [r.h] says:

“It is wajib to remove them [the structures over the graves].”

10. Hafiz ibn Hajjar Makki al-Shafi [r.h] says:

“It is wajib to remove the structures and domes over the graves“.

[Kitaab-al-Zawajir page 163]

Imam Malik (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked about a stranger who comes to the grave of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) each day.

He said, ‘That is not right,’ and quoted the hadith, ‘O Allah, do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped.’ [al-Jami’ li’l-Bayan by Ibn Rushd Classed as sahih by al-Albani in Tahdhir al-Sajid min Ittikhadh al-Qubur Masajid, p. 24-26.]

May Allah protect us and guide us all.
