Taking pictures of grave
« on: March 18, 2019, 04:41:07 PM »



Taking a photo of a grave with the intention of showing the close family

Q: Am I allowed to take a picture of my father's grave on my phone to show my mother and sister? After showing it to them, I will delete the picture.

A: We are encouraged in the Hadith to visit the graveyard in order to take a lesson from the graves of those who left the world. The graveyard is meant to serve as a reminder for one to realize that just as others have passed on, similarly he will also have to leave this world one day. Hence, one should prepare in advance for the life of the hereafter as death is inevitable. The graveyard is not a place of amusement and entertainment. Hence it is not in keeping with the spirit with which we are commanded to visit the graveyard that one takes photos of the graves to show others.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

باب استحباب زيارة القبور للرجال وما يقوله الزائر - عن بريدة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كنت نهيتكم عن زيارة القبور فزوروها رواه مسلم. وفي رواية فمن أراد أن يزور القبور فليزر فإنها تذكرنا الآخرة (رياض الصالحين)

وعن عثمان رضي الله عنه أنه إذا وقف على قبر بكى حتى يبل لحيته فقيل له تذكر الجنة والنار فلا تبكي وتبكي من هذا فقال إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إن القبر أول منزل من منازل الآخرة فإن نجا منه فما بعده أيسر منه وإن لم ينج منه فما بعده أشد منه قال وقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ما رأيت منظرا قط إلا القبر أفظع منه. رواه الترمذي وابن ماجه (مشكاة رقم 132)
