(Fatwa: 318=318/L)


The women can not go to Dargahs (graves of pious personalities) even with their husbands and Mahrams (father, son, brother etc) since these places are generally centres of un-Islamic activities:

والتبرک بزیارة قبور الصالحین فلا باس بہ اذا کن عجائز ویکرہ اذا کن شواب کحضور الجماعة فی المساجد (شامی: 3/151)


Also, since the women are weak in beliefs; therefore they are likely to indulge any thing that may cause kufr or shirk (infidelity and ascribing partner with Allah).

Allah knows Best!
