Is it permissible to perform tawaf around a grave?
It is totally forbidden as performing tawaf is a unique act just for the Ka’ba. However, to generalise and label this as act of shirk, as is often declared so by the Wahhabis and those of a similar thought process, is a flawed statement. It is a baseless slander against the Sacred Law.
And Allah ﷻ knows the best
