Dua when entering the graveyard – 3

Upon entering the graveyard, one should make salaam to the inmates of the graves with the following words:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ دَارَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ بِكُمْ لَاحِقُوْن

O (inmates of) the resting abode of the believers, may peace descend upon you (from the side of Allah Ta‘ala), Insha-Allah, soon we will be joining you.

عن أبي هريرة، أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج إلى المقبرة فقال: السلام عليكم دار قوم مؤمنين وإنا إن شاء الله بكم لاحقون (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 249)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that once Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) visited the graveyard and recited the following dua:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ دَارَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ بِكُمْ لَاحِقُوْن
