Shrines and qurbani in Quran
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Respected sister in Islam, we have read the Glorious Quran several times, but we absolutely assure you that we have not come across any verse or guidance in the Glorious Quran whereby it is deemed permissible for the believers to visit dargahs or shrines or tombs.or for the believers to offer their worship of qurbani (sacrifice) in the name of any other than Allah Subhanah!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 34:
34 To every people did We appoint rites (of sacrifice) that they might celebrate the Name of Allah (Alone) over the sustenance He gave them from animals; but your Allah is one Allah: submit then your wills to Him (in Islam) and give thou the good news to those who humble themselves.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 36:
36 The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah (Alone) over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter) eat ye thereof and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment and such as beg with due humility: thus have we made animals subject to you that ye may be grateful.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 27-28:
27 And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways;
28 That they may witness the benefits (provided) for them and celebrate the Name of Allah (Alone) through the Days appointed over the cattle which He has provided for them (for sacrifice): then eat ye thereof and feed the distressed ones in want.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 3:
3 Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the ame of other than Allah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 4:
4 They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food): say: lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah; eat what they catch for you but pronounce the Name of Allah over it: and fear Allah; for Allah is swift in taking account.
Respected sister, if you could kindly provide us with the exact Verses of the Glorious Quran which you believe allows or makes permissible for the believers to visit dargahs, or sacrifice in the name of any other than Allah Subhanah Alone.we would try to give you our clarifications in light of the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
