Salam. Yeah it is a good question. Since you have asked it, I am pondering and searching about its answer.

Behind the gold mesh and black curtains are the graves of the prophet Mohammad, Abu Bakr, and Umar Ibn Al-Khattab. Because of the curtains you cannot actually see the graves, and no photos exist that I know of. The grave was first walled off during the reign Umar.

Well there's a consensus among scholars that men are allowed to visit graveyards and graves because of this Hadith (most narrated by ibn Buraidah from his father (May Allah be pleased with him) for example in Sahih Muslim, in Jami' at-Tirmdihi, in Sunan abi Dawod and sunan an-Nasa-i, and narrated by abi Said al-Khudry (May Allah be pleased with him) in al-...

According to this fatwa (in Arabic) there's no appropriate time for that prescribed in any hadith or sunnah collection.

(Tirmidhi) So, as long as you had the intention ...

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.

It is true that the Prophet ﷺ did this, but this was specific for the Prophet ﷺ alone. مَرَّ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِحَائِطٍ مِنْ حِيطَانِ الْمَدِينَةِ أَوْ مَكَّةَ، فَسَمِعَ صَوْتَ إِنْسَانَيْنِ يُعَذَّبَانِ فِي قُبُورِهِمَا، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ يُعَذَّبَانِ، وَمَا يُعَذَّبَانِ فِي كَبِيرٍ ‏"‏، ثُمَّ قَالَ ‏"‏ ...

Salaams Its a shame that today we have lost touch with the spiritual side of islam. In chapter 2 of the holy Quran Allah states verse 2 , the ones that believe in the unseen.

Saluting the Prophet (saaw) at his grave is not shirk. In fact, it is recommended. Asking him for help or money or pregnancy or even forgiveness is shirk. You are required to face Qibla only during prayers. Other than that, face anywhere you like. Here is a fatwa from Bin Baz regarding this issue (in Arabic): http://www.binbaz.org.sa/mat/19164

The narration it mentions is a saying of Abdullah bin Masoud and not the Prophets. It goes as follows, Abdullah bin Masoud said = من قرأ تبارك الذي بيده الملك كل ليلة منعه الله بها من عذاب القبر "Whoever reads 'Tabaraka allathee biyadihialmulk' every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave..."
