Question

Please provide the reference for this:

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ أَنَّ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا أَقْبَلَتْ ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ مِنَ الْمَقَابِرِ فَقُلْتُ لَهَا يَا أُمَّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَيْنَ أَقْبَلْتِ قَالَتْ مِنْ قَبْرِ أَخِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ فَقُلْتُ لَهَا أَلَيْسَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَهَى عَنْ زِيَارَةِ الْقُبُورِ قَالَتْ نَعَمْ كَانَ نَهَى ثُمَّ أَمَرَ بِزِيَارَتِهَا

Translation: ‘Abdullah ibn Abu Mulayka reported: ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) returned one day from the graveyard. I said, “O Mother of the Believers, from where have you returned?” She said, “From the grave of my brother, ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Abu Bakr.” I said, “Did not the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) prohibit you from visiting the graves?” She said, “Yes, he prohibited us at first and then he commanded us to visit them.”

 

Answer

Refer to: As-Sunanul Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah), vol.4 pg.78. Also see Hadith: 6393 of Al-Muhadh-dhab lis Sunanil Kubra of ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah)

 

Note: The above is merely a mention of the reference. This should not be viewed as a Fatwa.

One should refer to a qualified Mufti/Darul ifta for a juristic ruling (Fatwa).

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
