The Hadith: “Whoever Visits My Grave, My Intercession Is Guaranteed For Him”

[12]In his annotations on Ibn Hajar’s Fath al-Bari (1989 ed. 3:387), echo­ing the exact words used by Ibn Taymiyya in his Minhaj al-Sunna al-Nabawiyya (1986 ed. 2:441) and Majmu`at al-Fatawa (27:119).

[13]In his Irwa` al-Ghalil (4:337-338) in which he imitated Ibn `Abd al-Hadi’s claims.

[14]In Talkhis Ahkam al-Jana’iz (p. 110) and elsewhere in his writings.

[15]Nasir al-Jadya`, al-Tabarruk (p. 322). Note that all these books are presently available in print, but not Shifa’ al-Siqam!

[16]Al-Sakhawi, al-Qawl al-Badi` (p. 160). He contradicts himself in al-Maqasid al-Hasana (p. 413) where he adopts al-Dhahabi’s opinion that “the chains of the hadith of visitation are all ‘soft’ (layyina) but strengthen each other because none of them contains any liar.”
