Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Raheem. Ya Rasool Allah Karam Ya Habeeb Allah Karam ( sal-lal-lahu alaihi wa sallam )

The Burning of incense sticks, lobaan etc in Masjids, Dargahs and Houses etc.

1. To light incense sticks (agarbatti) and lobaan in the Mazaar of the Awliya (or the gatherings of Khatams) and for the benefit of the visitors is permissible.

2. One should bear this in mind that it is done because all souls whether humans or malaikas like scented smell and once in a week souls visit their houses.  The Deceased souls visit their houses every thursday and they give duas to the family member who did duas for their maghfirat or who gave food to poor for sawab to their souls etc.For the comfort of the visitors, as they will feel better in a sweet-scented environment. So always in a house there should be Tilawat of quran, mehfil of duroods and also it is good to burn lobaan or oudh in every house.

3. The action of doing good deeds for others is also a means of Sadaqa and the deceased also receive the Sawaab of this Sadaqa performed by those who are living.

4. Where there Zikr of Allah, Malaikas ( Faristas) come to the place of the person doing Zikr of Allah ( Bukhari Shareef ) and the malaikas bring Rahmath , noor from asmaan. So if there is good smell of lobaan or oudh then both the souls of humans as well as malaikas will be happy.

5. Hazrat Abdullah Bin Umar ( Razi allahu Anhu ) was found of Bakhoor oudh burning in masjids. He use to bring pieces of bakhoor wood pieces and use to burn for this bakhoor in masjids.

Yes Most of us light agarbatis on the graves becuase souls like good smell . All souls the souls of living persons and the souls of the deceased persons, the angels ( Faristas , Malaikas ) all like good smell. It is sunnah to put attar because of smell. Similary it is our aqeedah that we light only because incense sticks give good smell.

I am from 25 years lighting agarbatis ( incense sticks ) on the graves of my relatives etc. in qabarstaan.

Only because good smell of either attar or incense sticks makes the souls happy this is our aqeedah.

We are not brothered about the people who critise don't put flowers, why you distribute sweets, why you burn loobaan , agarbatis  etc.

Because flowers do zikr-e-elahi so we put this on graves etc.

We distribute sweets becuase eating sweet is sunnah and heart becomes sweet

It is narrated in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim that: Once, while travelling, Nabi Muhammad, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, stopped at a certain place and said that there was a grave in front of him, and that the person therein is busy suffering punishment. Nabi Muhammad, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, then broke off two branches from a date palm and placed in on the grave, and said that as long as the branches were fresh, the punishment would be lessened.

This is because the fresh branches would be making the Dhikr of Allah, subhanaHu wa Ta`ala. So this act is a Sunnah, and people use flowers, as it is more available and also able to maintain its freshness for much longer.

From this we can also deduce that if we ourselves perform Dhikr at the Qubur, it would also lessen the inhabitants' punishment. Performing Dhikr at the Qubur of the Awliya would bring more blessings upon their respective Ruhs (souls). Doing this would be compliance with a divine order.

It is stated in the famous Hanafi Fiqh book Fatawa Alamgiriyyah/Hindiyyah (Kitab al- Jana'iz) that it is allowed to put flowers on a grave. Mullah Ali al-Qari writes in the commentary of the above-mentioned Hadith in al-Mirqat fi Sharh al-Mishkat that:

"Our Ulama have issued a ruling that to place fragrance and plants (over a grave) are a Sunnah practice".

One fails to understand how placing flowers over a grave means associating a Partner with Allah!!! To say that, actually means that flowers should only be put on the grave of Allah, subhanaHu wa Ta`ala! Astaghfirullah!!!!

It is sad that sometimes, even so-called learned people also cannot understand the consequences of calling a normal practice of Muslims as Shirk.

Nabi Muhammad, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, said that "The one who does not thank people, does not thank Allah, subhanaHu wa Ta`ala,", and we owe it to the Prophets, `alaymmu-s-salam, and Awliya, who protected and spread the Deen of Allah, subhanaHu wa Ta`ala, over the ages, that we visit their shrines, dress it with flowers if we wish to (as it is Sunnah) and make Dhikr there. A Nation, which does not honour its true servants and heroes, is an ungrateful Nation and is bound to confusion.
