Ajmer Shareef

CategoriesDeath & Burial [151]

Why is Ajmer Shareef so important?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


Ajmer Shareef is the place where Hazarat Moin Uddin Chisty (RA) is buried. According to the majority of the scholars it is permissible to visit the grave of Hazarat Moin Uddin Chisty (RA) in Ajmer Shareef.

Allahmah Ibn Abeedeen Shami (RA) uses the hadith of Musanaf Ibn Abi Shaibah (RA),

“That the Prophet of Allah Sallallhu Alahi Wasalm used to visit the graves of the Martyrs of Uhud every year” to prove one is allowed to visit the graves of the pious predecessors.

Even though some immoral and cultural practices take place at such graves, which are against the teachings of Islam, this should not prevent one from visiting the graves of the pious predecessors.

(Raddul Muhtar P.150 V.3 & Darse Tirmizi P.115 V.2)
