How to Properly Visit the Prophet’s Grave

How To Properly Visit The Prophet’s Grave

By Shaikh AbdulAziz Bin Baz

Prophet's mosque madinah

IT is recommended for the person visiting Madinah to send Salaam upon the Prophet ﷺ and his two companions.

He makes his way towards his grave after praying two Rakat in the Masjid. If he prays two Rakat in the Rawdah it is better, but if he prays anywhere in the Masjid it is sufficient.

Then after that, he goes towards his grave ﷺ. He stands in front of him and greets him with Salaam.

He says:

salam on the Prophet

Peace be upon you O Messenger of Allah, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings. May the Salutations of Allah and Salaam be upon you, your family and your companions.

Then he supplicates for him. (He can say):

visiting the Prophet's grave

May Allah reward you with good on behalf of the Ummah. I bear witness that you conveyed the message, fulfilled the trust, advised the Ummah and strove in the path of Allah in a befitting manner.

If the person says this, it’s good and authentic. Then he proceeds a little and gives Salaam to As- Siddiq, Abu Bakr. He says:

visiting the Prophet's grave

Peace be upon you, O Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings. May Allah reward you with good on behalf of the Ummah of Muhammad. May Allah be pleased with you.

Then he proceeds a little and gives Salaam to Umar Al-Farooq. He says:

visiting the Prophet's grave

Peace be upon you O Umar ibn Al Khattab and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings. May Allah reward you with good on behalf of the Ummah of Muhammad. May Allah be pleased with you.

He supplicates for both of them, and then he leaves.
