The Sand Of The Grave Of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam

Question

The sand in the grave of Rasulullah (SAW) superior than the Arsh of Allah.

I’m sure, you’ve come across this statement before, and I know scholars have alluded to this too.

If one chooses to disagree with this, or struggles – has he/she lost their Iman?

Answer

Why should one choose or struggle to accept this when clear proofs are provided by expert jurists who understand the Qur’aan and Hadeeth better than we do? Allaah Ta’aala mentions one of the qualities of the true believers in the Qur’aan:

The true believers say: “We hear Allaah’s commandments and we obey!”

One has not lost his/her Imaan.

(قَوْلُهُ إِلَّا إِلَخَ) قَالَ فِي اللُّبَابِ: وَاخْلَافُ فِيمَا عَدَا مَوْضِعَ الْقَبْرِ الْمُقَدَّسِ، فَمَا ضَمَّ أَعْضَاءَهُ الشَّرِيفَةَ فَهُوَ أَفْضَلُ بِقَاعِ الْأَرْضِ بِالْإِجْمَاعِ. اهـ. قَالَ شَارِحُهُ: وَكَذَا أَيْ الْخِلَافُ فِي غَيْرِ الْبَيْتِ: فَإِنَّ الْكَعْبَةَ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ الْمَدِينَةِ مَا عَدَا الصَّرِيحَ الْأَقْدَسَ وَكَذَا الصَّرِيحُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ. وَقَدْ نَقَلَ الْقَاضِي عِيَاضٌ وَغَيْرُهُ الْإِجْمَاعَ عَلَى تَفْضِيلِهِ حَتَّى عَلَى الْكَعْبَةِ، وَأَنَّ الْخِلَافَ فِيمَا عَدَاهُ. وَنُقِلَ عَنْ ابْنِ عَقِيلِ الْخَنْبَلِي أَنَّ تِلْكَ الْبُقْعَةَ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ الْعَرْشِ ، وَقَدْ وَافَقَهُ السَّادَةُ الْبَكْرِيُّونَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ. وَقَدْ صَرَّحَ التَّاجُ الْفَاكِهِيُّ بِتَفْضِيلِ الْأَرْضِ عَلَى السَّمَوَاتِ خِلُولِهِ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – بِمَا، وَحَكَاهُ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَى الْأَكْثَرِينَ خَلْقِ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ مِنْهَا وَدَفْنِهِمْ فِيهَا وَقَالَ النَّوَوِيُّ: الْجُمْهُورُ عَلَى تَفْضِيلِ السَّمَاءِ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ، فَيَنْبَغِي أَنْ يُسْتَغْنَى مِنْهَا مَوَاضِعُ صَمَ أَعْضَاءِ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ لِلْجَمْعِ بَيْنَ أَقْوَالِ الْعُلَمَاءِ
