The Deobandi View – 3: Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) hears and responds to the visitors of his grave

 

1. Shaikh Ibraheem bin Shaybah said: “When I visited Medina after performing Hajj, I said as-salaam alaikum at the grave of Rasoolullah and behold, I heard a voice in reply from the inside of the room wherein he is buried saying ‘Walaikum as-salaam.’”[1]

 

2. In Medina, there lived a woman from the Hashimi family, whose servants used to ill-treat her. She went with her complaints to Rasoolullah, where she poured out her heart. From the grave was heard his reply: “Do you not prefer to follow my excellent example. Have patience as I patiently persevered.” She said: “After hearing that voice all my grief disappeared and all the servants who used to annoy me passed away.”[2]

 

3. “Sayyed Ahmad Rifa’ee visited Medina and standing in front of the grave of Rasoolullah recited few couplets asking Allah’s Messenger to bring forth his hand. Indeed, was the hand of Rasoolullah stretched from the grave and in the presence of an estimated 90 thousand visitors did Ahmad kiss it.[3]
