The Adab of Visiting Graves

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ‘Ala ad-Din Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad ibn ‘Abd ar-Rahman al-Bukhari (q.s.) said, “The adab, or proper way, of visiting graves is to direct yourself to Allah (s.w.t.) and to make these souls your means to Allah (s.w.t.) humbling yourself to His Creation.  You humble yourself externally to them and internally to Allah (s.w.t.).  To bow before human beings is not allowed unless you look on them as appearances of Allah (s.w.t.).  Then that humbleness will be not directed to them, but it will be directed to the One Who is appearing in them, and that is Allah (s.w.t.).”
