Al-Albani on Mosques and Graves


Shaykh Muhammad Nasiruddeen Al-Albaani said:

The grave and the Masjid do not exist together in Islaam, like one of the senior scholars mentioned, that combining a grave and a Masjid together invalidates Ikhlaas (sincerity) of Tawheed and the worship of Allaah – Tabaraka wa Ta’ala.

The Masajid were built to establish this Ikhlaas (Sincerity), like Allaah Ta’ala said [that which means in English]:

And the mosques are for Allaah (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Allaah. [Jinn:18]
