Text Preview The Prohibition of Taking Graves as Places of Worship

Jundub Ibn Abd-Allah al-Bajali said that he heard RasulAllah (saw) say, five days before he died: "Verily those before you took the graves of their Prophets and righteous people as places of worship, so do not take the graves as places of worship. Indeed I forbid you from this!" (Muslim; Abu Awaanah, 1/104; and others

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (ra) that RasulAllah (saw) said: "O Allah, do not turn my grave into an idol. May the curse of Allah be upon those who take the graves of their Prophets as places of worship." (Ahmad; Ibn Sa‘d, 2/241-242; and others)
