Pouring water on the grave

E-mail Print PDF

Q. I visit the Qabr of my mother every week and I throw water on her Qabr. Is it permissible to throw a little bit of Zam Zam water mixed with the borehole water from our house?

A. The act of  pouring water on  the Qabr is prohibited for the following reasons:

1) It never was the practice of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Sahaabah and of the Salafus Saaliheen. It is an innovation (bid’ah).

2) It is a practice of the kuffaar.

3) It is a futile practice devoid of any merit.

The inmate of the Qabr does not derive any benefit from this practice. Make Dua, recite the Qur’aan Majeed and give charity for the Isaal-e-Thawaab of your marhoomah mother.
