Question: What is the Islamic status of visiting the graveyard?

Answer: It is Mustahab for men to visit graves/the grave yard. It is preferable to visit at least once a week. It is also preferable that this day be on a Friday. It is also permissible to undertake journeys to visit the graves of the pious. This is permissible as long as no belief or action contrary to the Shar’iah takes place.  [Bahisti Zeenat Page 268]

ويكره عند القبر ما لم يعهد من السنة والمعهود منها ليس الا زيارته والدعاء عنده قاءما كذا فى البحر الراءق (الفتاوى الهندية ج١ص١٦٧)

And Allah Knows Best
