‘Proof’ For Building Masjids Over Graves


The grave-worshippers try to use te story of the Companions of the Cave whose people took their locations of death as a masjid as a proof for the permissibility of building masjids on graves.

Al-Haafidh Ibn Katheer answered this doubt in two ways:

1) This was an action of an idol-worshipping and disbelieving people, so this in itself is not a proof.

2) Even if this was a action of Muslims, then they were not praised for doing this.

[See Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/78]
