Ziyaarat of the Quboor (visiting the graves)


The aim of this short treatise is to explain the masaai-il of the Shariah pertaining to Ziyaarat-e-Quboor and after Dafn (Burial). There exists a variety of practices for these occasions in different places. No one appears to be confidently versed with the tareeqah (way) of the Shariah and the Ta-aamul (the permanent practice from time immemorial) of the Akaabireen (our senior and illustrious Ulama – the Authorities of the Shariah). As a consequence of this unawareness coupled to the inflated ego of some modern-day Molvis and students of Deeni Madaaris, the Muslim public is in a quandary on this issue.

Issues which had long ago been settled by the Akaabireen have been given new forms of controversy for no valid and no good reason whatsoever. The Akaabir Ulama of Deoband have visited and guided the Muslims of South Africa for more than half a century. The avenue of guidance and the Sunnah was opened up for South African Muslims about 50 years ago with the arrival of Hakimul Islam, Hadhrat Maulana Qaari Tayyib Saheb (rahmatullah alayh). Thereafter followed a number of senior Ulama and Auliya of Deoband. The Muslims of South Africa look on these Akaabireen as paragons of virtue, embodiments of the Sunnah and Standard-Bearers of Allah’s Immutable Shariah and Fierce Opponents and Destroyers of Bid’ah.
