Oppose Desecration of the Birthplace and Relics of Prophet Muhammad


Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Condemns Violation of the Sanctity of the Holy Prophet's Birth Place


The Wall Street Journal Home Page WSJ Reports: ICONIC CLASH

We recently reported the latest news from outraged Muslims everywhere, that the Saudiís began another campaign to destroy the cultural heritage of Muslims. Sadly we must report yet again that the the sacred landscape of the Hijaz is again being laid to waste by the Saudi Arabian Wahhabi extremists. Rather than ceasing their infamous wanton destruction of historic relics they have in fact stepped up their efforts by seeking to destroy the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be peace, in the holy city of Makkah.

Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, worldwide leader of the Naqshbandi-Haqqani Sufi Order, has decried these awful desecrations. Speaking in Lefke, Cyprus, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim said:

The Wahabis are doing their worst for Islam. They are never understanding that respect to the Prophet is respect for Allah Almighty. Those who are not accepting the Lordís Praising of that one that he is Muhammad, 'the praised one.' And they are asking to destroy everything which is connected to his holy presence ; everything carrying his holy blessings, baraka. I am asking my mureeds, wherever they may be, to object to these actions. We are not silent ones. Our honor, our love is for Sayyidina Muhammad. O believers, do not be like deaf and dumb people when the honor of your Prophet is being harmed!

What is taking place?

Saudis have taken the Birthplace of the Prophet, which is currently a small library resting on the original home of Sayyidina Abdul Muttalib's foundations, and have covered it up in the process of demolishing the building and eradicating its foundations, after which they intend to build a very large building at the site to be the King Fahd Library.


The action is an extension of major operations by the Wahhabist rulers of that nation as they undertake a new ideological "jihad" to destroy major relics and monuments from the time of the Prophet Muhammad - upon whom be peace and blessings - as well as important historical monuments from later periods. These acts of cultural oppression are being perpetrated under the auspices of a battle against "idolatry."


Other desecrations that took place recently:

Recently, the city planning board of Medina, Saudi Arabia, which is dominated by a notoriously extreme-Wahhabist mayor and city-planning commission:

- Painted the famous green dome of the Holy Mosque of the Prophet silver, knowing that its original color is beloved by Prophet Muhammad and by all Muslims. After intense protest from the citizens of Medina the board restored the dome to its original green.

- Ordered the destruction of five of the renowned Seven Mosques initially built by Prophet Muhammad's daughter and four of his greatest Companions: Masjid Abu Bakr, Masjid Salman al-Farsi, Masjid Umar ibn al-Khattab, Masjid Sayyida Fatima bint Rasulillah and Masjid Ali ibn Abi Talib.

Our reports indicate that these ancient buildings have been covered with black tarpaulins to hide the demolition work taking place at these revered shrines.

- Ordered pulling down of "Al-mukabariyya", the elevated location for the call to prayer in the Holy Mosque of the Prophet, built by Umar bin Abdul-Aziz in the 8th century. Apparently, it too has been covered by black tarps to hide the desecration.
