IMAM AD-DAHABI (RAHIMULLAH) QUOTED :-
Abu Ali Ghisani Said Abu al Fath Nasr bin al Hasan al Sakti Samarqandi told us in 464 h there was a drought in Samarqand, People tried their best, some said Salat al Istisqa but still it did not rain, A renowned righteous man known as Salih came to the Qadhi and said: In my opinion you along with your public should visit the grave of Imam Bukhari (Rahimuhullah), His grave is located in Khartank, We should (go near the Qabr) and ask for rain, Allah might give us rain then, The Qadhi said Yes to his opinion and then he along with the people went towards (the Qabr) and then He made a dua along with the people and people started to cry near the grave and started to make him a Waseela (i.e. Imam Bukhari). Allah Ta’ala (immediately) sent rainclouds. All people stayed in Khartank for about 7 days, none of them wanted to go back to Samarqand although the distance between Samarqand and Khartank was only 3 miles

1) HIKAYA IN ISLAM CARRY NO WEIGHT,SPECIALLY IN CREED,NEED A MUTAWWIR REPORT TO PROVE CREED (AQEEDAH).
2) CRITIQUE ON CHAINS OF NARRATIONS.
3) THIS ATHAR IS AGAIN QURAN AND SUNNAH,PRATICE OF SAHABA,TABEEIN,TABE TABEEIN.
4) FATWAS OF SCHOLAR.
1) HIKAYA IN ISLAM CARRY NO WEIGHT,SPECIALLY IN CREED,NEED A MUTAWWIR REPORT TO PROVE CREED (AQEEDAH):-
There is no value of Hikayah in ISLAM specially in creed. It could be weak, fabricated or Authentic, Creed are based on Quran and Authentic Sunnah (those who use this athar according to them hadith should be mutwatir for creed) but here they are using Hikayah of Mutakhiroun and not even from Tabiyeen and Itteba Tabiyeen.
ABDULLAH IBN MUBARAK RIGHTLY SAID :-
Chains are in deen, if chain is not there then anyone can say anything.
(MUQADDAMAH SAHIH MUSLIM TARQEEM DARUS SALAM NO 32 )
IMAM NAWAWI SAID :-
Scholars and researchers among people of hadeeth and others said that when the hadeeth is weak, so it will not be said that Prophet peace be upon him said that or he had done or he ordered or he stopped and there are other words like this which are used for the mode of affirmation, these modes can not be used. And it can not be said that Abu Huraira narrated or he said that or mentioned that or he told or explained or transferred or gave fatwa. And it can not be said for tabiyeen and people after them while the (narration attributed to them) is weak.And we can not use the mode of affirmation in any other thing. In all these situations these modes are used ruviya anhu or nuqila anhu or huqiya anhu or jaa anhu or balaghnaaa anhu or it is said (Yaqaal) or Yuzkaru or Yuhkay or Yurwa or or yurfaoo or yuazaroo and there are other modes which can be used here (in seegha at-Tameeedh). And we can not use the mode of affirmation (on these kind of narrations) because the mode of affirmation are entitled for authentic and Hasan Narrations, and the mode of tamreedh is used for other narrations (like weak and fabricated etc). Because the mode of affirmation requires authentication of being established and it can not be used for the those which are not authentic. Else under such situations the man would be considered a liar if he say something”
COMMENT :- So its is clear that it is not authentic according to Muhadditheen this is not Quran and Sunnah, not even saying of Sahabee, How can it be evidence?
2) CRITIQUE ON CHAINS OF NARRATIONS :-
IMAM AD DAHABEE is quoting from Abu Ali Ghisani, Dahabee died in 748 h, and there is no chain from Ad Dahabee to Abu Ali Ghisani,how can we rely on this story?
SHAYKH ZUBAIR ALI ZIA SAID :-
Who is Abu Ali al Hafidh? Nothing is mentioned regarding him. Remember that here Abu Ali Al Hafidh Nesaboori is not meant, who was teacher of Hakim Etc. He died Before Abu Al Fath Nasr bin Al Hasan As Samarqandi Summary is that This story of Praying for Rain near Grave of Imam Bukhari is not Proven.
(AL-HADITH NO 38 PAGE 10-11)
SHAYKH SAHEEM SAID :-
CONSIDERING ABU ALI GHISANI,AL HUSSAIN BIN MUHAMMAD BIN AHMAD AL GHISANI AL ANDULASI THE IMAM.
Dahabee mentioned this story in Siyar Ur Ulum An Nabuwa and Subki Mentioned in Tabqaat and Said, Abu Ali Ghisani said (and then the whole story),Dahabe Died in 748 H,Subki Died in 771 H,And Abu Ali Ghisani, and He is Al Hussain bin Muhammad bin Muhammad bin Ahmad Al Ghisani Al Andulasi Al Jiyani died in 498h Then He said this Story is Munqatah.(DISCONTINUE)
DETAILED REPLY :-
THIS ATHAR IS AGAIN QURAN AND SUNNAH,PRATICE OF SAHABA,TABEEIN,TABE TABEEIN.
ISLAM DOESNOT DERIVED FROM STORIES.RATHER IT IS BASED ON QURAN AND SUNNAH.MOREVER TO BELIEVE IN CREED WE NEED A MUTAWWIR REPORT NOT HIKAYA WHICH DOESNOT CARRY ANY WEIGHT IN ISLAM.
IMAM AD-DAHABEE HIMSELF SAID IN SAME BOOK :-
Due to ignorance of Egyptians the Creeds found in them is not correct to talk about it, When shirk found in them, they prostate to others (except Allah), and they seek forgiveness from them
(SIYAR UL ULUM AN NABUWA 10/106)
Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Do not make your houses graves, and do not make my grave a place of festivity. But invoke blessings on me, for your blessings reach me wherever you may be.
ABU DAWOOD (Book #10, Hadith #2037)
“Eid is the name of one of the festivals, and it was said that it means returning and repeating, until it becomes a habit [‘aadah]. What is meant is: do not make my grave a place to which you have the habit of coming back repeatedly and often. Hence he said, ‘Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are,’ because that is sufficient and there is no need to visit his grave frequently.”
Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “O Allah! Do not make my GRAVE an IDOL that is worshipped. The anger on those who took the GRAVEs of their Prophets as places of prostration was terrible.”
MUWATTA MALIK (Book #9, Hadith #9.24.88)
It was narrated that al-Ma’roor ibn Suwayd (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “We went out with ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab and we came across a mosque on our route. The people rushed to pray in that mosque, and ‘Umar said, ‘What is the matter with them?’ They said, ‘This is a mosque in which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prayed.’ ‘Umar said: ‘O people, those who came before you were destroyed because they followed such (practices) until they made them places of worship. Whoever happens to be there at the time of prayer, let him pray there, and whoever is not there at the time of prayer, let him continue his journey.’”
(NARRATED BY IBN WADDAN IN HIS BOOK AL-BIDAYA WAL-NIHAY ANHAA)
(CLASSED SAHEEH BY IBN TAYMIYAH IN AL-MAJMOO 1/281)
Ali ibn al-Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with him) saw a man entering through a gap at the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and making du’aa’. He told him not to do that and said, “Shall I not tell you a hadeeth that I heard from my father from my grandfather from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? ‘Do not take my grave as a place of festivity (which you visit repeatedly) and do not take your houses as graves. Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are.’”

FATWAS OF SCHOLAR :-
HAFIDH AS SHATIBI :-
“The Prophet (P.B.U.H) never left anyone after himself anyone more superior than Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (ra), since he was his Khalifah and no one did this through him… and nor through ‘Umar (ra) and he was the best of the Ummah after him. Then likewise, ‘Uthman (ra) and then all of the Companions, with respect to whom there is no one who is more superior. There is not established from a single one of them any authentic report that states that someone would make tabarruk from them in any of these ways or what is similar to them . Rather they restricted themselves to following and imitating the actions and statements in which they (the Companions) followed the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) . This, therefore is a unanimous agreement from them for the abandonment of these things.”
(AL AITESA’AM VOLUME 2 PAGE 8-9)
IBN WADDAAH AL-QURTUBI SAID :-
“Maalik ibn Anas and other scholars of Madeenah regarded it as makrooh to go to those mosques and historical sites connected to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), apart from Quba’ and Uhud.”
(AL-BIDAYA WAL-NIHAY ANHAA PAGE 43).
SHAYKH AL-ISLAM IBNE TAYMIYAH SAID :-
“Hence the scholars of the salaf among the people of Madeenah and elsewhere did not regard it as mustahabb to set out to visit any places in and around Madeenah after the Mosque of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), apart from the mosque of Quba’, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not specify any mosque to be visited apart from that.”
(MAJMOO AL-FATAAWA 17/469)
FAKHAR UDDIN AL RAZI SAID :-
Fakhrudin Ar-Razi in the Tafsir of verse 18 of surah yunus mentioned different sayings of scholars about how the Mushriks took idols as intermediary towards Allah, and he mentioned in fourth explanation:
“They built these statues and idols upon the forms of their Prophets and leaders (Akabir), and they believed that when they would worship these idols, then these leaders (Akabir) would become intercessors for them in front of Allah. And what is similar to this in our times is the veneration (ta’zeem) of a lot of people among the creation of the graves of their leaders (Akabir), with the belief that if they venerate their graves, then they (leaders) will be intercessors for them in front of Allah.”
THIS IS CLEAR PROOF THAT THIS (WEAK) HIKAYAH IS AGAINST QURAN AND SAHEEH HADITH,WE SHOULD FOLLOW QURAN AND SAHEEH HADEET AGAINST (WEAK) HIKAYAH.
