I would like to query the authenticity of a Hadith which states that one should read Surah Takathur and Surah Ikhlas when visiting the grave.
A Hadith of this nature has been cited in non primary Hadith sources and is referenced to Abul Qasim Az Zanjani’s Fawaid. I have not come across the chain and can therefore not comment on the authenticity.
(Refer: Sharhus Sudur, pg. 548, Mirqatul Mafatih, Hadith: 1717, Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 669)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
