Save the Hijjaz

Salaams All.
 
Islam is a religion that is rich in arts, culture and heritage.  Wonderful architecture, interesting relics, blessed sites, beautiful calligraphy and paintings, and so on.  Throughout the period of the spread of Islam, since the birth of Prophet Muhammad (s), Muslim caliphs and rulers have taken great efforts and pains to preserve the rich heritage of Islam. 
 
With exception of course.  Only the Saudi Wahhabi state is doing the exact opposite.  Instead of preserving our rich heritage, they are taking all means possible to destroy them (all if possible).  Since their advent in the early 1920s, the Saudi-Wahhabis have been on a rampage, obsessed in ridding itself of the heritage of Islam.
  • In 1998, the grave of Amina bint Wahb, the prophet Mohammed's mother, was bulldozed and doused in gasoline.
  • The birthplace of Prophet Mohammed came under threat 50 years ago, now a library, will soon levelled and turned into a car park.
  • The house of Sayyidatina Khadijah (Prophet Muhammad's first wife), was demolished and replaced with public lavatories.
  • The house of Sayyidina Abu Bakr (companion of Prophet Mohammad & first caliph of Islam) was demolished to make way for the Hilton hotel.
  • The 1,200-year-old Masjid Abu Qubais, site of the grave of the Prophet's grandson Ali-Oraid, was demolished and a palace was built over it.
  • The mosque and tomb of Sayyid Imam al-Uraidhi ibn Ja‘far al-Sadiq was destroyed by dynamite and flattened on 13 August 2002.

There's lots more insane acts that just make me cry.  I just don't know when will these Wahhabis ever stop.  In a very recent article entitled "Shame of the House of Saud: Shadows Over Mecca" published by Independent UK newspaper, it mentioned,

The Wahhabis live in fanatical fear that places of historical or religious interest could give rise to alternative forms of pilgrimage or worship. Their obsession with combating idolatry has seen them flatten all evidence of a past that does not agree with their interpretation of Islam.

Lay people, and in some cases even US senators could be forgiven for thinking that the House of Saud has been the guardian of the two holy places for time immemorial. In fact, it is only 80 years since the tribal chieftain Ibn Saud occupied Mecca and Medina.

There's been a series of articles on this subject that I would like to share with everyone, and I hope you can spend some time reading the following short articles:

Shaykh Irfan Ahmed al-Alawi is fighting a lonesome battle, struggling hard against the tide.  His message is falling on deaf ears - the Wahhabis have ears that cannot hear, and eyes that cannot see.  Visit Shaykh Irfan's website Save the Hijjaz to know more about this struggle - click hereWe have to do something.  Think about it.  Meanwhile, we must make do'a for Allah's Heavenly Support.

Whhabi/salafi are Devils from Najd Riyadh as warned by Prophet Muhammad(saw), what do u accept from devils anyway ,do u think these people care for their Prophet ?NO

Because they are the devils and devil does not care or Respect anyone beside Himself


Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: The Prophet (s)said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The People said, “And also on our NAJD.” He said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham (north)! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle! And also on our NAJD.” I think the third time the Prophet (s) said, “There (in NAJD) is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of Satan.”

Sahi Bukhari (Book #88, Hadith #214)


It can be deduced from the above Hadith that Najd is neither blessed nor a good place but one of Fitna and Evil. Najd has been deprived of the prayers of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) and therefore Najd has the seal of misery and misfortune and hoping for any good from there is going against the Will of Allah.


NOTE: NAJD IS THE CENTRAL EASTERN PART OF ARABIA LYING EXACTLY TO THE EAST OF HEJAZ OR MEDINA, PRESENTLY CALLED AS RIYADH HAIL , BURRAYDAH THE CAPITAL OF HYPOCRITES WAHHABIS AND SALAFIS ,THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE GREAT DEVILS AND FITNAH IBN ABDUL WAHHAB AND THE PRESENT WAHHABI SALAFI SAUD DYNASTY
