The Superstition Of Fragrances Emanating From The Prophets Grave

What is your opinion regarding a person who says that: whosoever comes to the grave of the Prophet would smell the fragrance of the grave - or the fragrance of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) - and [claims] that these fragrances have Barakah (blessing) in them?

There is no fragrance that one smells when visiting a grave, neither the grave of the Prophet nor anyone else's grave. This is from lying and falsehood. Maybe he smells a fragrance which the people put there so he thinks that this is surely the fragrance of the Messenger (sallallaahu řalayhi wa sallam)! This is from the superstitious deviations for which no authority has been sent down.
