Dua when entering the graveyard – 6

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

السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ دَارَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِينَ، وَأَتَاكُمْ مَا تُوعَدُونَ غَدًا مُؤَجَّلُونَ، وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ بِكُمْ لَاحِقُونَ

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

عن عائشة، أنها قالت: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كلما كان ليلتها من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يخرج من آخر الليل إلى البقيع، فيقول: السلام عليكم دار قوم مؤمنين، وأتاكم ما توعدون غدا مؤجلون، وإنا إن شاء الله بكم لاحقون، اللهم اغفر لأهل بقيع الغرقد (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 974)

Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would spend the night by her (i.e. at the end of his life after Hajjatul Wadaa) then during the latter portion of the night, he would (often) visit Jannatul Baqi (the graveyard of Madinah Munawwarah). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would then make salaam to the inmates in the following words:

السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ دَارَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِينَ، وَأَتَاكُمْ مَا تُوعَدُونَ غَدًا مُؤَجَّلُونَ، وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ بِكُمْ لَاحِقُونَ

Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would make dua saying, “O Allah, forgive the inmates of Jannatul Baqi.”
