Hadith of visiting the grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is rigorously authenticated – Clarification by the Hadith-experts

Hadith of visiting the grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is rigorously authenticated – Clarification by the Hadith-experts

 

This Hadith has been recorded by many Hadith-experts.  Hadhrat Mulla ‘Ali Qari writes that this Hadith is so rigorously authenticated that deductions can be made on its basis:

 

Translation: This Hadith has been mentioned by Imam Daraqutni and other exerts of Hadith and a section of the Imams and the experts of Hadith have declared it as Sahih rigorously authenticated.  (Sharh Shifa, Vol. 3, Pg. No. 511)

 

‘Allama Sindhi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has recorded a detailed Hadith in this regard:

 

Translation: Visiting the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is the best of all observances and the greatest means of attaining the proximity of Allah.  The proof of this is the Hadith of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam):  My intercession is imperative for those who visit my grave.  Imam Daraqutni and various other experts of Hadith have recorded this Hadith and Muhaddith Abdul Haq has declared this as rigorously authenticated.  This Hadith is also a proof:  Those who come to visit me with no other intention apart from it, then in Qiyamah intercession for that person is my responsibility.  A section of Hadith-experts have recorded this Hadith.  Among them is Muhaddith Abu Ali Bin Sakan who has declared this Hadith as rigorously authenticated in his “Sunan Sihah.”  Both these persons are considered Imam in the science of Hadith.  They have declared these Hadith as rigorously authenticated.  Their saying so carries more weight that the person who objects to it.  (Haashiyatus Sindhi Ala Sunan Abu Dawood, Hadith No. 3103)

 

‘Allama Shahbuddin Khafaji has written in Naseem Ur Riyaaz Sharh Shifa:

 

Translation: Imam Ibn Khuzaima, Imam Bazzaar, Imam Tabarani and ‘Allama Dhahbi have declared this Hadith as fairly authenticated (Hasan).  This Hadith has many chains of narration which support this.  Criticism of the narrators of this Hadith is simply unacceptable as Imam Subki has detailed.  (Naseem Ur Riyaadh Fi Sharh Shifa Al Qazi Iyaz, Vol. 3, Pg. No. 511)

 

 

Imam Qustullani (May Allah shower His mercy on him) writes:

 

Translation: Imam Abdul Haq has recorded this Hadith in his “Ahkaam Wasti” and in “Ahkaam Sughra” and has not criticized its chain of authority at all and that he did not do so in both of his books is proof enough that this Hadith is rigorously authenticated.  (Al Mawahib Al Ladunniya Ma’a Sharh Zurqani, Vol. 12, Pg. No. 179)

 

The aforementioned details make it clear that this Hadith has been declared either rigorously authenticated (Sahih) or fairly authenticated (Hasan).
