If a woman passes by a graveyard, should she say salaam to the occupants?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
We know that women are not allowed to visit graveyards but what do you say about a woman who passes alongside the wall of the graveyard when she is on her way somewhere and she can see the graves – should she recite the du’aa’ narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), or is she not allowed to, or what should she do?.

Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing wrong with her reciting the du’aa’ narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) (“Al-salaamu ‘alaykum ahl al-diyaar…”) and there is no sin on her, because she is not intending to visit the graves and she has not entered the graveyard, rather she is just passing by unintentionally.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
