I am posting the fatwah of Mufti Saheb to prove that visiting the mazaars is permitted in Islam.
Mufti Saheb, I would like to know if the people who visit mazaars and pray there are on the right path? If one has to pray then is there a specific way to do so? I am from Karachi and you might have heard about the popular mazaar of Abdullah Shah Qazi, at Clifton. Is it permissible to visit that mazaar and pray there? It is a general belief that if we want our prayers to be heard then we should strive to go to the top from the bottom. Since the Buzurgs have been noble momins so they can be made a source to reach Allah. Since we know that Allah is closer to us than our jugular veins and he knows best then why can’t we send our prayers directly to Allah, however sinful we may be? Please reply to me in detail.
