Masnoon Du’aa in Graveyard

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah

Question:

QUESTION1-WHAT IS THE MASNOON SALAAM TO BE READ IN THE GRAVE YARD WITH REFERENCE?


Answer:

 

In his famous authentic compilation, ‘Allamah Shaami (R.A.A.) writes with reference to the Hadith of Nabi (S.A.W.) that the prophetic method to be adopted whilst visiting the cemetery is firstly in the standing position, thereafter reciting the supplication, as would usually be done by Nabi (S.A.W.) in visiting Jannatul Baqee’.  The Du’aa is:  “Assalamualaikum daara qowmim mu’mineen wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum laahiqoon” (Raddul Muhtaar, Vol. 1, Page 665)

In the Kitaab ‘Al-Bahrur Raaiq’, Allamah Ibn Nujaim writes that Nabi (S.A.W.) taught the Sahabah Kiraam (R.A.) the Du’aa to be recited when visiting the dead:  “Assalamualaikum ayyuhad daara minal mu’mineena wal muslimeena wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum laahiqoon antum lanaa faratun wa nahnu lakum tab’un fa nasalullaha

al-‘aafiyata.”

In the Kitaab ‘Al-Hisnul Haseen’ written by ‘Allamah Muhammad Al-Jazari (R.A.A.) under the chapter:  “Supplication when visiting the cemetery” the following Du’aas are mentioned:

1.          “Assalamualaikum ahlad diyaari minal mu’mineena wal muslimeena wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum lalaahiqoon.  Nasalullaha lanaa wa lukumul ‘aafiyata.  Antum lanaa faratun wa nahnu lakum tab’un.

2.          “Assalamu ‘alaa ahlid diyaari minal mu’mineena wal muslimeena wa yarhamullahul mustaqdimeena wal musta’khireena wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum lalaahiqoon.”

3.          “Assalamualaikum daara qowmim mu’mineen wa ataakum maa tu’adoona ghadan mu’ajjaloona wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum laahiqoon.”

4.          “Assalamualaikum daara qowmim mu’mineen wa innaa insha-Allahu bikum laahiqoon.”

5.          Assalamualaikum yaa ahlal quboor.  Yaghfirullahu lanaa wa lakum wa antum salafunaa wa nahnu bil ithar.”

(Al-Hisnul Haseen, Page 233)
