Islamic rulings about graves

Islamic rulings about graves

 

Making graves elevated

 

Making a grave (Qabar in Urdu) higher than a hand-breadth is Mustahab (commendable).  Hadhrat Abdullah bin Abu Bakr (May Allah Ta’ala be well pleased with them) says:

 

Translation of Hadith: I have seen the grave of Hadhrat Uthman bin Maz'oon.  It was (i.e. elevated) (Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba, Vol. 3, Kitab Ul Janaaiz, Pg. No: 216)

 

Also, the graves of Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Umar and the martyrs of Uhud were high, as given in various Hadith in Kanz Ul Ummal.  There is a Hadith in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba:

 

Translation of Hadith: I have seen the graves of the martyrs of Uhud high like the hump of a camel.  (Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba, Vol. 7, Pg. No: 342, Hadith No. 11858).

 

There is another Hadith in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba:

 

Translation of Hadith: Hadhrat Khalid Bin Abu Uthman narrates from a person, who says: I saw a few days after the demise of Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Umar that his grave was built high.

 

This shows that keeping the grave high and elevated is Mustahab as per the Shariah.

 

There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:  Hadhrat Sufyan Tamaar (May Allah Ta’ala be well pleased with him) said:  I have seen the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as elevated as the hump of a camel.  (Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Ul Janaaiz, Hadith No. 1325)
