Author: Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah
Paperback: 195 pages
'The Outstanding Answer on Visiting the Graves' deals with the important subject of travelling to pther than three Masjids (Masjid-ul-Haram in Makkah, Masjid-un-Nabawy in Medinah and baytul Maqdis in Palestine) in order to visit the graves of Prophets and Saints. This book is, in fact, a discourse which Shaykh-ul-Islam wrote to al-Nasir, the Sultan of his time, clarifying his position on this controversial subject. It was his position which his enemies later distorted and utilised as a means to have him imprisoned in Damascus, wherein he remained until his death in the year 721 A.H.
