قبرستان میں قرآن پڑھنے کا حکم

قبرستان میں قرآن مجید پڑھنے کا سنت سے کوئی ثبوت نہیں ہے مثلاً سیدہ عائشہ نے رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے پوچھا کہ میں قبرستان والوں کیلئے کیا کہوں تو آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا تم کہا کر و:
رسو ل اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے اس موقع پر صرف سلام اور دعا ہی سکھائی ہے۔ قرآن مجید کا کوئی حصہ پڑھنے کی تعلیم نہیں دی ۔ا گر وہاں قرآن پڑھنا جائز ہوتا تو آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کبھی نہ چھپاتے اور اگر آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے صحابہ کرام کو کچھ بتایا ہو تا تو ہم تک بھی ضرور پہنچ جاتا مگر یہ کسی صحیح سند سے ثابت نہیں ہے۔
اسکی مزید تاکیدر سول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے اس فرمان سے ہوتی ہے کہ :
'' آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ اپنے گھروں کو قبریں نہ بنائوں پس بیشک شیطان اس کے گھر سے بھاگتا ہے جس پر سورہ بقرہ پڑھی جائے''
معلوم ہوا کہ قبرستان سورہ بقرہ پڑھنے کی جگہ نہیں ہے۔ یہ حدیث اس طرح ہے جس طرح دوسری حدیث میں فرمایا :
'' اپنے گھروں میں نماز پڑھو اور انہیں قبریں نہ بنائو '' (صحیح مسلم ، کتاب صلاة المسافرین و قصر ھا باب استحباب صلاة النافلة فی بیتہ و جواز ھا فی المسجد )
اس سے معلوم ہو اکہ جس طرح قبرستان میں نماز پڑھنا جائز نہیں ۔ا سی طرح قبرستان میں قرآن مجید پڑھنا درست نہیں ۔

قبر پر سورۃ بقرہ وغیرہ پڑھنا

س: اس مسئلہ کی کتاب و سنت کی روشنی میں وضاحت فرمائیں کہ حدیث میں آتا ہے ؟
اس حدیث کی وضاحت کریں کہ کیا یہ پڑھنا کسی صریح مرفوع حدیث سے ثابت ہے جبکہ دوسری طرف نبی کرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے قبرپر قرآن پڑھنے سے منع کیا کہ قبروں کو عبادت گاہ نہ بنایا جائے اور ایک حدیث میں آتا ہے کہ گھروں میں سورة بقرة پڑھا کرو او رانہیں قبریں نہ بناؤں۔ برائے مہربانی اس کی وضاحت فرمائیں آپ کا شکریہ ۔

ج: آپ نے عبداللہ بن عمر کی جو روایت نقل کی ہے کہ انہوں نے ر سول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے سنا :'' جب تم میں سے کوئی شخص فوت ہو جائے تو اسے روک کر نہ رکھو اور اس کی قبر کی طرف جلدی لے جاؤ اور اس کے سر کے پاس سورہ بقرہ کی ابتدائی آیات پڑھی جائیں اور اسکے پائوں کے پا س سورہ بقرہ کی آخیر آیات پڑھی جائیں۔ا س روایت کی وجہ سے یہ رواج عام پایا جاتا ہے کہ میت کی قبر پر آیات پڑھی جاتی ہیں۔ کئی اہل حدیث حضرات بھی ا س پر عمل کرتے ہیں حالانکہ روایت کے ساتھ لکھا ہے کہ اسے بیہقی نے شعیب الایمان میں رویات کیا ہے صحیح بات یہ ہے کہ عبداللہ بن عمر پر موقوف ہے یعنی ان کا اپنا قول ہے ( رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا فرمان نہیں ) ۔
حقیقت یہ ہے کہ یہ روایت نہ رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے ثابت ہے نہ عبداللہ بن عمر سے ۔ شیخ ناصر الدین البانی نے مشکوة کی تعلیق میں رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی طرف منسوب روایت کے متعلق لکھا ہے کہ اسے بیہقی کے علاوہ طبرانی نے معجم کبیر (۳/۲۰۸/۲) میں اور خلال نے کتاب القرائت عندالقبور (ق۲۵/۲) میں بہت ہی ضعیف سند کے ساتھ روایت کیا ہے۔ا س میں ایک راوی یحیی بن عبداللہ بن ضحاک بابلتی ہے جو ضعیف ہے۔ اسے ایوب بن نہیک سے روایت کیا ہے جسے ابو خاتم وغیرہ نے ضعیف کہا ہے اور ازدی نے کہا کہ وہ متروک ہے ۔
مشکوة میں شعیب الا یمان سے بہیقی کا قول جو نقل کیا ہے کہ :'' صحیح بات یہ ہے کہ یہ ابن عمر پر موقوف ہے '' تو شعیب الایمان میں مجھے بیہقی کے یہ الفاظ نہیں ملے۔ انہوں نے مروع روایت نقل کرنے کے بعد فرمایا ہے :
'' دیکھئے شعیب الایمان حدیث۹۲۹۴ یعنی یہ مر فوع روایت میرے علم کے مطابق صرف اسی سند میں آتی ہے اور اس میں مذکور (سورہ بقرة کی آیات کی ) قرأت ہمیں عبداللہ بن عمر سے موقوفاً روایت کی گئی ہے۔ اس سے معلوم ہوا کہ بیہقی نے ابن عمر کی موقوف روایت کو صحیح نہیں کہا بلکہ صر ف یہ ذکر کیا ہے کہ عبداللہ بن عمر سے موقوفاً یہ روایت آتی ہے ۔

There are 6236 ayats in the HOLY QURAN.I really check myself and there are 558 rakoh in the HOLY QURAN.
Ap mujhay batain keh QURAN PAK ki ayaat 6666 kesay ho sakti hein? jab keh kul ayaat hi 6236 banti hein.agar BISMILLAH ko mila kar bolay jaey to QURAN PAK mein kul 114 martabah BISMILLAH aya hai(Sorah TOBA mein BISMILLAH nahi aya jab keh Sorah NIMAL mein 2 martabah aya hei).Yun BISMILLAH ke sath QURAN Pak ki 6350 banti hein baqi ki 316 ayaat kahan gaen?
ap kagaz lein aur soorat ke sheeroo mein upper kul ayaat likhi jati hei.ap her soorat ki upper likhi gaee ayaat ko jama kartay jaen to jawab 6236 aey ga.jaesay Sorah AL-FATIHA mein 7 ayaat,Sorah Al-Baqrah mein 286 (7+286+200+176+120.............5+4+5+6=6236)

Betty Khan,

Yes it is true that muslim woman can not marry someone outside of the Muslim Faith unless he reverts to Islam. As Allaah says in al-qur'an:

وَلَا تَنكِحُوا الْمُشْرِ‌كَاتِ حَتَّىٰ يُؤْمِنَّ ۚ وَلَأَمَةٌ مُّؤْمِنَةٌ خَيْرٌ‌ مِّن مُّشْرِ‌كَةٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَتْكُمْ ۗ وَلَا تُنكِحُوا الْمُشْرِ‌كِينَ حَتَّىٰ يُؤْمِنُوا ۚ وَلَعَبْدٌ مُّؤْمِنٌ خَيْرٌ‌ مِّن مُّشْرِ‌كٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ ۗ أُولَـٰئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ‌ ۖ وَاللَّـهُ يَدْعُو إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَ‌ةِ بِإِذْنِهِ ۖ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُ‌ونَ ﴿٢٢١

interpretation of the meaning: “And do not marry Al-Mushrikat (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allah Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress, etc.), even though she pleases you.

And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun till they believe (in Allah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater, etc.), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikun) invite you to the Fire, but Allah invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember."
