Regarding Tombs


Assalamu alaikum,
Dear Sheikh,

Salafis say that it is not permissible to build tombs over graves or raise the grave. They say that Prophet (pbuh) ordered Ali (ra) to destroy all the tombs built over the graves. This hadith is recorded in Muslim. How to respond to them?

Also is it permissible to ask Dua through the pious person who is in the grave. What are its evidences? Please clarify.

Thank You.


Alaykum salam,

This appears to be a sempiternal query which has been more than adequately addressed.
See: “Tomb Structures, Visits, and Vows
Is it permissible to build structures on graves?
