Tombs of the Prophets of Islam

Tombs of the Prophets of Islam (Peace Be Upon them all)

Syrian Prophets

Seth

Tomb of Seth in Baqa’a Valley

Seth is not mentioned by name in the Quran but Muslim exegetes report that he was the son of Adam and Eve, the one to whom prophethood was passed after Adam, and to whom was revealed a number of scriptures from God. These scriptures are said to be the “first scriptures” mentioned in Q 87:18. Muslim exegetes also mention that Seth was responsible for the burial of Adam, and for the burial of secret texts in the tomb of Adam, called the “Cave of Treasures” by Tabari and other Muslim scholars.

Muslim and Christian sources report that some people believe Seth is buried in one of the two great pyramids in Giza near Cairo. Maqrizi reports that the Sabaians of Harran made pilgrimage to Giza and offered sacrifices there to Seth and Idris (Hermes) because they believed that the pyramids were the tombs of these two prophets.

This tomb of Seth is located within one of the main mosques in the village of Nabi Shit (i.e. Prophet Seth) in the mountains above the Baqa’a Valley in Lebanon. This is the same range of mountains that contain the tombs of other early prophets such as Abel. The area of the tomb is not raised above the ground and is roughly 50 meters in length. The tomb, shown here, is draped with Shi’i burial shrouds and the mosque is clothed in black for the remembrance of Ashura which was taking place when this picture was taken, in February 2004. The tomb was visited in the 19th century by Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulsi and was described to the 12th century traveler Ibn Jubayr along with the nearby tomb of Noah in Kerak Nuh.

Arab Prophets

Tomb of Salih near Hasik

The Mazar of Hazrat Salih (peace be upon him) is said to be located in Mada’in Salih, in Hijaz, or in the Hadhramawt. According to the local people in the Hadhramawt, Salih was the father of the prophet Hud, corresponding to the biblical Shelah father of Eber. Both Hud and Salih are said to have been giants, thus accounting for the extraordinary length of their tombs. According some scholars this is the Mazar of Hazrat Salih at Hasik.

Israelite Prophets

Mazar Mubarak of Hazrat Yahya (John) in Lebanon. Some other scholars say that the Mazar of Hazrat Nooh can be in Jordan OR Lebanon OR Iraq. Allah knows the best.

Tombs of the Sahabah – “Companions” of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Leave a comment

During his lifetime and especially during his prophetic mission, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was surrounded by a number of followers or “Companions” [Arabic “Sahabah”]. Muslim scholars have different criteria for determining who qualifies as one of these followers. In some cases, a Companion is a person who was alive during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Others state that a Companion is someone who actually followed the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) during his lifetime as a Muslim.

Muslim scholars have compiled massive biographical dictionaries devoted to the lives of these Companions, their followers, and the followers of their followers. There are also biographical dictionaries devoted to those who transmitted hadith reports on the authority of these Companions.

Introduction

Praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

We previously published a brief work entitled “Muharamaat: Prohibitions that are taken too lightly”, which discussed some of the various offences against Sharee’ah which may involve shirk and major and minor sins. Evidence for these things being prohibited was quoted from the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and real-life situations were described in order to explain clearly the different ways in which people may fall into committing sin.

There are many things that have been prohibited in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and it is very important for the Muslim to know about them so that he can keep away from them and thus avoid earning the wrath and anger of Allaah or bringing about his own doom in this world and the next. So I thought of compiling this list of prohibited things, in accordance with the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Religion is sincere advice (al-deen al-naseehah),” and in the hope that it will be of benefit both to myself and to my Muslim brothers. So I have compiled what information I could from the Qur’aan and from the ahaadeeth classed as saheeh by the scholars who specialize in this field (relying mostly on the reports classed as saheeh by al-‘Allaamah Muhammad Naasir al-Deen al-Albaani in his books). Topics are grouped according to the classifications used in fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). I have not quoted every hadeeth in full, only the relevant parts. In most cases the reports include words which clearly indicate prohibition (such as “Do not…”), and I have explained the reason for the prohibition in some cases. I ask Allaah to help us to avoid sin and wrongdoing wherever it exists, visible or hidden, and to accept our repentance.

Praise be to Allaah, Lord of the Worlds.

List of prohibitions mentioned in the Qur’aan and Sunnah

Allaah and His Messenger have prohibited many things, avoiding which brings great benefits and protects us from many kinds of evil and harm. These prohibitions include both things which are haraam (forbidden) and things which are makrooh (disliked, discouraged). The Muslim should avoid these things, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us: “What I have forbidden you to do, avoid.” The committed Muslim is keen to avoid all things that have been prohibited, whether they are classed as haraam or makrooh. He does not act like the weak of faith, who do not care if they do things that are makrooh, even though taking such matters lightly leads to committing haraam deeds, as the makrooh deeds effectively form a barrier around haraam actions. Moreover, the person who avoids makrooh deeds will be rewarded for this, if he avoids them for the sake of Allaah. On this basis, we make no distinction here between makrooh and haraam, because making this distinction requires a great deal of knowledge, but most of what follows describes actions that are haraam rather than makrooh.

There now follows a list of things that are prohibited in Islam. (Rest of the Book in PDF Format)
