Assalamualaikum Mawlana Shaikh Hisham and the rest of the group..we are all very blessed to have you all helping us learn more.
Me and my family are Naqshbandis, and we often go to the shrines of saints for fatiha and request them to pray for us. What I wanted to ask is when people mock us for going there because they say according to Shariah Graves arent meant to be “pakki” (I think that means cemented, I’m not sure) and also are meant to be ground level, than how can you go to such sites and they basically make it sound like how can they be such great saints Astaghfirullah. I wanted a reply to this so if people say this to me again I’m able to explain to them properly. Please help and forgive me for anything I said against adab. There objections dont change my belief.
Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) commanded us to visit the graves, end of story.
