    Building the Graves In the Quran and Islam

    Quoted from the book (An Hour with Ghosts) ByMohammed-Ali Hassan Al-Hilli
    Building the Graves Is a Sin, and Sanctifying Them Is a Kind of Associating Them with God

    Building the graves and shrines of saints and imams, and decorating them with ornaments, silver, gold and chandeliers; all these acts lead to their glorification, because man – by his nature – loves the wealth, ornaments, silver and gold.

    God – be glorified – said in the Quran 3: 14
    زُيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ حُبُّ الشَّهَوَاتِ مِنَ النِّسَاء وَالْبَنِينَ وَالْقَنَاطِيرِ الْمُقَنطَرَةِ مِنَ الذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ
    The explanation:
    (Beautified to men is the love of lusts –– women, children, large amounts of gold and silver …etc.)

    The glorification of graves and shrines leads to the "association", because most of people will ascribe to saints the attributes of God; so that they deem them able to revive the dead [i.e. to bring them back to life], and to make them die, and to cure the sick, and able to grant people their needs, and that they know the fore-future, and that they have innumerable miracles, and other similar lies about saints.

    And because they attributed to them the attributes of God, they disbelieved. They also associated [them with God], because they became enthusiastic about them, or exaggerated in loving them so as to consider them as the successors of God in His earth or as His assistants in His creation.

    That is just as how some Christians exaggerate about the Christ when they said the Christ is the son of God!

    While God – be glorified –prohibited the exaggeration in loving the prophets and saints, and He said – be exalted – in the Quran 4: 171
    يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لاَ تَغْلُواْ فِي دِينِكُمْ وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ عَلَى اللّهِ إِلاَّ الْحَقِّ إِنَّمَا الْمَسِيحُ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ
    The explanation:
    (O people of the Bible¹ [lit. Scripture], do not exaggerate² in your religion nor say aught concerning God save the truth³. The Messiah Jesus the son of Mary was but a messenger of God*.)
    [¹Here, it means the Christians.
    ² i.e. do not exceed the bounds in your religion.]
    ³ i.e. You should say that God is One, as mentioned in the Torah, Gospel and the Quran; but don't say that He is a third of three.
    * i.e. and Jesus is not His son, but His messenger to people from darkness to light or to guidance.

    Therefore, building of graves leads to glorification, and the glorification leads to the "association", and the [fate of the] associate is in Hell.

    God – be glorified – said in the Quran 19: 56-57, telling about the story of Idries:
    وَاذْكُرْ فِي الْكِتَابِ إِدْرِيسَ إِنَّهُ كَانَ صِدِّيقًا نَّبِيًّا . وَرَفَعْنَاهُ مَكَانًا عَلِيًّا
    The explanation:
    (And mention, in the Book, Idries; he was truthful [and] a prophet.
    And We raised him up to a high place.)
    "Idries" is the same "Elia" (or Elijah) mentioned in the Bible. He was a prophet of the Children of Israel, and his title is Idries; because [as the title in Arabic indicates] he taught the Torah [included the Old Testament], to his students.

    During the years 875-853 BC, he strived against the pagan idolatry [i.e. serving idols] intruded by Jezabel, the wife of King Achab; therefore he was exiled to Serfat, where – by his prayer – he brought back to life a son of a widow. And by God's permission and God's granting, he caused the rain fall upon the earth after its cessation for three years near the Mount Karmel (or Mount Carmel).

    He overcame the priests of Baal and Astaroth and commanded to kill them, and this caused Jezabel to pursue him with her zeal [for her idols and priests]; so that he ran away to the wilderness of Sinai.

    Then he returned, and prophesied to Achab the vengeance of God; because he associated [the idols with God in the worship], and because he, together with his

    Idries was lifted up, after his death, to heaven, i.e. to the Paradises. He foretold his companions, by that, before his hour [of death.] Then they went out of the city in Jordan, he and his disciple Eliseus, walking towards the mountains where he died, while his body was buried by the storm which covered it with dust and earth, so that his companions could not find his body afterwards, while his ethereal soul ascended to heaven.

    It was the will of God that his body should not be found on those mountains, just as how did Aaron die over the mountain and they could not find his body afterwards; just like Moses the son of Imran and Jesus the son of Mary; in order that no graves and shrines would be built for them, then these graves will be worshipped after them when they would be considered as equals to God, and an idols for those who sanctify them.

    As regards the graves of Moses which is found nowadays at Al-Khalil [: Hebron in Palestine]; it is a symbolical grave and it isn't his true grave 18 .

    The purpose from that is that the Children of Israel should not worship their graves after their death, just as how are the sepulchers and shrines of some of the prophets, sheikhs and imams worshipped besides the worship of God by some of the Muslims and non-Muslims.

    One point that should be emphasized is that the conduct and life history of prophets and saints and their righteous work do not agree with this enthusiasm and exaggeration; that their work is inscribed in the conscience of every faithful man.
