Answer

(Fatwa: 516/516=L)

 

(1) It is not allowed to celebrate the urs of the dead:

لایجوز ما یفعلہ الجھال بقبور الأولیاء والشھداء من السجود والطواف حولھا واتخاذ السرج والمساجد الیھا و من الاجتماع بعد الحول کالأعیاد و یسمونہ عرساً (تفسیر مظھری: بحوالہ فتاوی رشیدیہ: 135)

 

(2) It is also not allowed:

و فی الشامی: و عن أبی حنیفۃ یکرہ أن یبنی علیہ بناءً من بیت أو قبۃ أو نحو ذلک لما روی جابر: نھی رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم عن تجصیص القبور و أن یکتب علیھا و أن یبنی علیھا۔ (شامی: 3/144)

The above text clearly says that it is prohibited to build mazar (a shrine or a mausoleum).
