Excerpts from Shaikh Muqbil’s [rahimahullaah] Book Titled ‘Ilhaadul Khumeini Fee Ardil Haramayn’- [Resemblance of The Rawaafid to Those Ahlul Kitaab Who Took Graves as Places of Worship] [PDF]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Aa’isha [radiyallaahu-anhaa] narrated that Umm Salama [radiyallaahu-anhaa] mentioned about a church she had seen in Ethiopia in which there were pictures. They told the Prophet about it, so he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘Those people if any righteous man dies amongst them, they would build a place of worship at his grave and put those pictures in it. They are the worst of creatures in the sight of Allah. [Bukhaari. Number 427]
And the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’Allaah cursed the Yahood and Nasaaraa [i.e. those amongst them who deviated] because they took the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.’’ So, the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] warned against what they did.
[And] if you say, ‘’Indeed, some of the Muslims have joined them in this [affair], then I say, ‘They [Yahood and Nasaaraa] are the fanatics in this affair, and whoever joins them [in this affair] is resembles them.
