Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I need to know. Can a woman go to the graveyard for ziyaarat? Did Hazrat Aaisha (Radiyallahu Anha) go to the graveyard for ziyarat of her brother. First Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said don’t go and the he said you can go to Aaisha (Radiyallahu Anha). Can you please explain me about women and children going to the graveyard.


A: After the decision was taken that women should not come to the musjids the same decision applied for the qabrastan as well.

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