QUESTION:
				7 8 6
As salamu alay kum. I would like to know, with references, the specific du'a
and 'aamal one should do when going to the graveyards, when someone should
visit the graveyards, etc.


ANSWER:

Seyyid Ibn Tawus in Misbah Al-Zair says the best day to visit the dead is
Thursday, but if you cannot do it on a Thursday, do it on anyday you can.

Upon reaching a grave of believer, face qibla and place your hand on the
grave. Then recite Surat Inna Anzalna (Al-Qadr) seven times, Al-Hamd.
Al-Tawheed, Al-Falaq, An-Naas and Ayatul Kursi.

When a person recites Suratul Qadr for a dead Momin seven times, Allah
creates an angel to sit beside the dead person and protect the dead person
from all afflictions until the day of judgement.

See Mafatihul Jinan in Adaab Ziyarat Quburul Muminin Pg 655 Arabic Version


Wallaahu A'alam
