Hadith: Visit Graves as a reminder
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "You should visit graves, because they will remind you of the reality of death."
When asked what to say when passing a graveyard, the Prophet replied: "May God grant mercy to those who have preceded us and to those who are to follow them."
