Hadith from Naqshbandi.org


As salamu alaykum,

I read this hadith on Naqshbandi.org:
It is narrated in Sharhus Sudoor by al-Imam al-Suyuti that Nabi Muhammad (s) said that when you visit the graveyard, you should read Suratul-Ikhlas, Suratut-Takathur and Suratul-Fatiha, and present the reward of the recitations as a gift to the inhabitants of the graves. Nabi Muhammad (s) explains that these souls will then make du’a for you, asking Allah (swt) to forgive you and bless you.

Can you please give this hadith with the exact wordings and complete with reference. I would like to study it.



Alaykum Salam,

It is found here:

The correct translation is “These souls will intercede for you to Allah Most High.” Suyuti’s source is the Fawa’id of Abu al-Qasim Sa`d b. `Ali al-Zanjani (d. 471), from Abu Hurayra.
The wording is:

عن أبي هريرة
قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من دخل المقابر ثم قرأ فاتحة
الكتاب وقل هو الله أحد وألهاكم التكاثر ثم قال إني جعلت ثواب ما
قرأت من كلامك لأهل المقابر من المؤمنين والمؤمنات كانوا شفعاء له
إلى الله تعالى
