Rasoolullah (SAW) has mentioned, “visit the graves, for surely the graves lessens wordly love and reminds you of the hereafter”.
Hazrat Ayesha (radiallah taala anhu) used to visit the grave of Prophet Muhammad and her father Hazrat Abu bakr (radiallaho taala anho) who were buried in a room of her house. She used to offer salams to them often. Later, when Hazrat Umar (radiallaho taal anho) got buried since then she started to veil her face.
Imam Fakhruddin says that “Fatima (radiallaho taala anhu) used to visit the grave of Hazrat Hamza (radiallaho anho).
Some people refer to the hadis “Allah dislikes the women who perform ziyarat” and say women should not visit the graves. The hadis is weak one. We should not act by relying on a weak hadis. Many ullamas of Ahle-sunnat are also in agreement with this view.
It is not forbidden but in fact a sunnat for women to perform ziyarat.
