Chapter 347

Prohibition of Sitting on the Graves


 
Hadith 1766

Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu said: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"It is much better for one of you to sit on a live coal, which will burn his clothes and get to his skin than to sit on a grave.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: To sit on the grave is strictly prohibited [see Hadith No. 1758 Chapter 342]. Ibn Hajar Al-Haithami and others, however, regard this act to be only Makruh (undesirable) and maintain that the warning contained in the Hadith is for those people who sit on them for urinating or defecating. The Hadith also elucidates the fact that graves should be respected and that glorifying the people in them by plastering them or building over them is not permissible.
