Hadeeth about Passing by a Non-Muslim Grave
Fatwa No: 83656

Question

Is there any Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him) that what we should say when we pass by a non-Muslim grave?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Imam Ibn Maajah narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "Whenever you pass by a grave of a non-Muslim, give him tidings of Hellfire.” (The chain of this Hadeeth is sound as mentioned in Majma’ Az-Zawaa-id).

Allah knows best.
