Praying at a grave of a Tzadik

Rabbi Ari ShvatSivan 1, 5778
Question
Is praying at grave considered idol worship? What about praying 4 days by the tomb of a Tzadik?
Answer
It's not at all considered idol worship!! For we pray there to God, not to the righteous person. We just ask that God answer our prayers for the sake of this righteous person who is buried there.
