Title: Giving Adhaan in the grave


As salaamu alaikum. Hope in Allah all is well.

Is it permissible to give azaan in the grave?

Are there any references to giving Azaan at or in the grave in Abu Dawud, Muslim or Tirmidhi ? 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is not permissible to give Adhaan in the grave. To give Adhaan at or in the grave is an act of bid’ah and incorrect. [i]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

في الاقتصار على ما ذكر من الوارد إشارة إلى أنه لا يسن الأذان عند إدخال الميت في قبره كما هو المعتاد الآن، وقد صرح ابن حجر في فتاويه بأنه بدعة. وقال: ومن ظن أنه سنة قياسا على ندبهما للمولود إلحاقا لخاتمة الأمر بابتدائه فلم يصب. اهـ
