    The qur'an say nothing about it. If that is all you want to know I can post it as an answer. – Medi1Saif Aug 22 '19 at 20:02
  • I guess going to a graveyard is fine. Sharing/expaining all the details or showing a dead body isn't fine. Kids can sense a bad/tense situation even though they're not able to fully grasp all its details – Honey Aug 23 '19 at 20:48

The Quran does not say anything about it as far as I know.

We visit graveyard to be reminded of death, to pray for forgiveness of the deceased or to receive tabarruk. Not one of these apply to a 3 year old as he is too young to understand anything and not mukallaf, so there is no interest served by bringing him to a graveyard.

  • Hi, welcome to the Islam SE. What is mukallaf and how can one argue that "the child should know, what is life and where we go" or "realities of life" – Nofel Aug 27 '19 at 12:19
