    “Why once a year?”
    Imam Tabari, Hafidhh-Ibn-Kathir and Qurtabi write:The Prophet Muhammad [Saws] used to go to the graves of the martyrs of Uhd once a year and also recite the verse of the Holy Qur’an on excellence of patience. The Prophet Muhammad [Saws] used to pray for them. When the beloved Prophet Muhammad [Saws] passed away himself, the Khalifs, Abu-Bakr [Saws], Umar [Saws], Usman [Saws] and Ali [Saws] used to do the same thing. [Tafsir Tabari, Tafsir Ibn-Kathir and Tafsir Qurtabi by Imam Tabari, Hafidhh Ibn-Kathir. Imam Qurtabi commentary of Surah Ra’d Verse 20.]
    From all this we can conclude or understand that going to the grave of a saint once a year is permissible and is not an innovation (bidah). Also to lecture in a gathering is just another way of doing Dawah (work propagating Islam).

    In Islam is it permissible for a person to fix a time, or date for voluntary (Nafal) prayer?
    1.Imam Bukhari writes one day after the Fajr prayer, the Prophet Muhammad [Saws] asked Bilal [ra], tell me what good deeds you do because I heard your foot steps in Jannat. Bilal replied the only thing I do is after I make Wudu I pray Nafal how much Allah (Almighty.) wills me to do. (Bukhari: Chapter of Salaah)
    Hafidhh Asqalani writes in his commentary on this Hadith. We can understand from this Hadith that it is permissible for a person to fix a time for his/her voluntary prayer. (Fath-ul-Bari Book of Salaah)
    2.The Holy Prophet (saws) has commanded to perform the child's Aqeeqah on the 7th day.
    3.Rasoolullah (saws) went to Ghazwa-e-Tabook on a Thursday and he preferred to journey on a Thursday.
    4.The Holy Prophet (saws) would go every Saturday to Musjid-e-Quba.

    To build a mosque on the grave. ---They said, build over their cave any building. Their lord knows well about them. Those who prevailed in their affair said, we swear that we shall erect over them a mosque.(Surah Al-Kahaf-21)

    Imam Tabari, Hafidhh-Ibn-Kathir and Imam Qurtabi writes:When the people of the cave went into the cave, some people said, who were close to the entrance of the cave, build a mosque so we can worship Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) The people who said this were Muslims.
    [Tafsir Tabari, Tafsir Ibn-Kathir Surah Kahf Verse 21]

    Hafidhh Asqalani writes:If a person built a mosque near the graves of pious people, and that person’s intention is solely for the blessings of Allah (Almighty.), and at the time of prayer, not to prostrate or face the grave, it is permissable to build a mosque near the grave of a saint and is not forbidden. [Fath-ul-Bari, Chapter of Masajid]

    the true meaning of the Hadith which points out not to prostrate to the graves. It does not mean not to build a mosque near the graves.
    Imam Tabari and Hafidhh-Ibn-Kathir write, in the 88th year of Hijra, the room of Aisha [ra] where there are graves of the Prophet Muhammad [Saws] Abu-Bakr [ra] and Umar [ra] were joined to the mosque of the Prophet Muhammad [Saws]. (Tareeh Tabari and Tareeh Hafidhh Ibn-Kathir, Chapter of Government (Valid-Ibn-Abdul-Malik by Imam Tabari and Hafidhh Ibn-Kathir)
    At the time of this, some companions and students (Tabeen) were alive and since then, no one has objected to this, which means it is allowed to have a mosque near the grave.

    visit the grave with the intention that you are going to see the grave -----Qadi Shawkani writes that:After the Prophet’s (Saws) death, Bilal settled in Syria. He had a dream where he saw the Prophet (Saws) and the Prophet said what kind of friend are you that you do not come and visit my grave? The next morning, Bilal made a journey to Madina to see the Prophet’s (Saws) grave. At that time the companions were alive and they did not object to this. This narration is authentic. [Nal lul Autar chap on Hajj by Qadi Shawkani].

    Marking of a grave---Narrated Al-Muttalib: When Uthman ibn Maz'un died, he was brought out on his bier and buried. The Prophet (saws) ordered a man to bring him a stone, but he was unable to carry it. The Apostle of Allah (saws) got up and going over to it rolled up his sleeves.*[Abu Dawud, Book 20, Number 3200]
    Various ahadiths encourage to keep adab in treating the grave by not standing or sitting on it, etc. Therefore, the basis of respecting the grave is established.
    Barakah/blessings---Imam Bukhari (ra)states that Hadrat Abdullah ibn Umar used to read namaaz on the path wherever the Holy Prophet(saws)sometimes performed ibaadat. At some of these places, Musjids were even built. However, some were erroneously built not at the actual places of' Rasooullah’s (saws)ibaadat.Hadrat Abdullah ibn Umar (ra) would never read namaaz in these Musjids and only perform ibaadat in the correct ones. Bukhari Sharif, Vol. I, Kitaabus-Salaab, Baabu/-Masaajid Alatt fi Tareeqil-Madina .This was entirely to attain barkat.

    When I want to talk to allah I say prayers and when I want that he talk to me I recite quran- Hazrath Ali(ra)
