Ziyarah

Ziyarah


More than any other tomb in the Islamic world, the shrine of the Prophet Muhammad is considered a source of blessings for the visitor.[8] A hadith of the Prophet states that, "He who visits my grave will be entitled to my intercession" and in a different version "I will intercede for those who have visited me or my tomb."[9][10][11] Visiting the Prophet's tomb after the pilgrimage is considered by the majority of Sunni legal scholars to be recommended.[12] The early scholars of the salaf, Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d. 241 AH), Ishaq Ibn Rahwayh (d. 238 SH), Abdullah ibn Mubarak (d. 189 AH) and Imam Shafi'i (d. 204 AH) all permitted the practice of Ziyarah to the Prophet's tomb.
