Some Muslims think visiting the Prophet Mohammed’s grave is recommended or even obligatory. One of the hadeeths that these people use to justify their actions is,
“Whoever visited (the Prophet Mohammed’s grave) me and my father Ibraheem (his grave) in one year, would enter heaven”.
However Zurqane in “Muhtasar al-maqaseed” (1030) said it’s fabricated. Mullah Ale al-Qare al-Hanafe in “Asrar al marfua” (#336). Nawawe said: It’s false and there is no base for it. Ajloone in “Kashul hawa” (1) noticed that this narration wasn’t narrated by anyone from the people of knowledge.
