A Women Should not Visit Graves
Question:

What is the ruling on women visiting the graves?
Answer:

It is not permissible for women to visit graves, because the Messenger Salallaahu alayhi wasallam cursed those women who visit the graves, because they are a trial and a temptation, and the patience of a women is short. Therefore it is from Allaah's and His Beneficence that He has forbidden them to visit the graves, so they are neither a source of trial (to others) nor put to trial (themselves). May Allaah improve the situation of us all.
