Not visiting the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) – A sign of great deprivation

 

The Holy Quran and the Hadith order one and all to pay their respects to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Doing so has been encouraged and staying away from this has been declared to be a sign of the hypocrites. It is given in the Holy Quran:

And when it is said to them: ‘Come so that Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) may seek forgiveness for you,’ these (hypocrites) jerk their heads aside (insolently) and you see them keeping away (from your presence) in arrogance.  Surah Munafiqun (63:05)

Also, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has declared that the person who does not visit the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in spite of being able to do so has committed an excess against Him.  As given in this Hadith:

Translation: It has been related from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that He said:  The person who does not visit me in spite of being able to do so has committed as excess against me.  This Hadith has been narrated by Ibn Farhoon in his Manasik and by Imam Ghazali (May Allah shower His mercy on him) in Ihya Ul Uloom.  (Al Mawahib Al Ladunniya Ma’a Sharh Zurqani, Vol. 12, Pg. No. 180)

There is a similar Hadith in Jame’ Ul Ahadith Wal Maraseel, Jame’ Ul Kabeer and Kanz Ul Ummal:

Translation: The person who performs Haj of the House of Allah and does not visit me has been discourteous to me. (Jame’ Ul Ahadith Wal Maraseel, Hadith No. 21997; Jame’ Ul Kabeer, Hadith No. 4728; Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 12368)

Reward for 2 accepted Haj for those who visit the grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

There is a Hadith:

Translation: Whoever performs Haj, then comes to My mosque to visit me, for him (or her) the reward of 2 accepted Hajj is written.  (Sunan Dailami, Jame’ Ul Ahadith Wal Maraseel, Hadith No. 21996; Jame’ Ul Kabeer, Hadith No. 4727; Kanz Ul Ummal, 12370)
