Do Not Make Your Houses Into Graveyards
Narrated Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do not make your houses into graveyards, for the shaytan flees from a house in which Surah al-Baqarah is read.” (Ahmed & Muslim).
“Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: “Allah’s Messenger (May Allah’s Peace & blessings be Upon Him) said:
“Do not make your homes into graves, nor make my grave into a place of celebration. Send your prayers and blessings upon me, for they will be conveyed to me wherever you may be.” (Narrated by Abu Dawood with a good sanad, and all of its narrators are trustworthy).
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) tells us in this Hadith, that the Prophet (May Allah’s Peace & blessings be Upon Him) forbade us from abandoning our homes and making them into graves where acts of worship are not performed and Allah’s Name is not mentioned. And he forbade us from taking his grave as a place of celebration where people come to visit on a specific date, for a specific occasion. Then the Messenger of Allah (May Allah’s Peace & blessings be Upon Him) ordered us to send prayers and blessings upon him and informed us that the prayers and blessings of any Muslim, whoever he may be and wherever he may be, will be conveyed to him.
