Question: Is it permissible to kiss (chumna) and prostrate (sajda) in Dargah
(shrine) and Mazaar (tomb)?
Answer: Prostrating in front of someone beside Allah (swt) is prohibited (haram) shariat has strictly prohibited this kind of act because any prostration is only for Allah (swt) and it is necessary to have intention (niyat) to prostrate.
To bend down to do some work or to bend down for the respect is not a prostration, prostration (sajda) is just for Allah (swt).
Regarding the matter of kissing the tomb (chumna) it is not related with prayer it is related with love, Allah (swt) is pure we can't see and kiss (chumma) Allah (swt).
To respect and love Allah (swt) virtues is our heartily duty and walis and Buzurganedeens
are one of many glorious signs of Allah (swt) because of this we love and respect them that's why we kiss there Dasta Mubarak (turban), beard (face Mubarak) or kiss there forehead (peshani mubarak), like how a father kisses his
children, or a person whom they love most they kiss them, that's why we don't kiss the stone of mazaar (tomb) or Dargah
(Shrine) but we kiss to the feet of the vali or buzurg who is over there we believe that grave and ghilaf are related to that wali or buzurg, how it is necessary for each haji to hit stones to three shaitaan in mina, that shaitan who appeared for a short time now there is a cement pillar this is a symbol of shaitan till the day of judgment.
