Glad tidings of intercession and reward of an accepted Haj on visiting Madina only to pay one’s respects to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

Glad tidings of intercession and reward of an accepted Haj on visiting Madina only to pay one’s respects to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

 

Paying one’s respects is the means of eternal blessings.  For this reason, the Hadith encourage and exhort us to do so.  Visitors should go to there only to visit the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), as the Holy Quran has given an explicit command:

 

(O Beloved,) if they, having wronged their souls, had come to you imploring the forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) had also asked forgiveness for them, then (owing to this mediation and intercession) they would certainly have found Allah Most Relenting, Ever-Merciful. Surah Nisa (4:64)

 

It is not the mark of a Muslim to deny an explicit command of the Holy Quran.  Trying to explain it away using unacceptable deductions is a sign of spiritual deprivation.

 

Some people say that we should go to Madina with the intention of going to Masjid Nabawi and not with the intention of visiting the grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  This kind of people should think that every Masjid is a house of Allah.  The distinction of Masjid Nabawi is because of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  When one can travel with the intention of visiting this Masjid then why cannot one travel to visit Him because of whom this Masjid was granted this distinction?  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has given glad tidings of special intercession for those who come to pay their respects to Him.

 

There is a Hadith:

 

Translation: For the one who comes to visit me such that there is no other intention apart from visiting me, then in Qiyamah, intercession for him (or her) is my responsibility.  (Mo’jam Kabeer Tabarani, Hadith No. 12971; Mo’jam Ausat Tabarani, Hadith No. 4074;  Mustadarak ‘Alas Sahihain, 1747; Majma ‘Uz Zawaid, Hadith No. 5842; Jame’ Ul Ahadith Wal Maraseel, Hadith No. 21932; Jame’ Ul Kabeer, Hadith No. 4663; Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 34928)
