The Manner of performing the Ziyarat Part 1


Chapter 09 - The Aadaab for the Ziyaarat, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

In most other books, the manner of Ziyaarat, its proper etiquette, the words to recite have already been noted. In the following lines we intend mentioning only some of the points to bear in mind. This should actually not be necessary, as:

‘The love that is borne for him;

Itself should teach respectful honor for him.”

1.The ulama disagrees as to whether Ziyaarat should precede Haj or vice versa. (See chapter eight, hadith three)

Introduction


Chapter 09 - The Aadaab for the Ziyaarat, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

In almost all the booklets printed on the subject of Haj, whether in Urdu, Arabic or Persian, a chapter has been included which deals with the proper manner to perform Ziyaarat. In fact the Ulama have mentioned as one of the main proofs for the need of Ziyaarat, the fact that whenever anyone wrote on Haj he also included at least a chapter on the visit to the tomb of Rasulullah Sal’am.

Is’haaq bin Ibrahim Faqih wrote: “It has always been the custom of the Hajis that when they perform Haj, they also proceed to Madina so as to visit the tomb of the Rasul Sal’am, to be blessed thereby and visiting the Mosque, the Prophet’s Mimbar, his resting place and the places where he dwelt”.
