The Messenger of Allah (S) said: “One who performs the Hajj and then visits my grave after I have passed away is like the one who has visited me in my life time.”1

Taylasi has narrated from Umar that he said:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (S) saying: ‘I will be a witness and an intercessor for the one who visits my grave, or visits me.’”2
