GS is becoming my new Google. I'm writing this question here before I even googled it. But this is what my sister showed me today and asked me the same question, but this is like the first time ever I've heard this!
This was the text accompanying the picture:
This was a miracle happened around 90 years ago narrated by Sheikh Al-Zubaidi.
A person tried to demolish the Dome of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) Masjad Al Nabawi (Gumbad-e-Khizra).However, when some one climbed over the dome to start the demolition, a sudden Lightning struck him and the climber died at the spot and no one was able to remove his body from the top of the dome!!!
It was also said that a pious man from Madina heard a voice in his dream that no one can take out the dead body from the Dome and that he should be buried their as a warning and a lesson for those who may think of attempting to demolish it in future!!!
Finally, they decided to bury the man right there on the dome and to cover his body with a green box so it wont be visible to p eople.
Is this true?GS - It's all about enjoying the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

never heard this one before !
been to madina quite a few times. never noticed aisi baat. neither did anyone there ever narrated such a story

^ yeah same here. Though I was very young when I lived in KSA and I can't remember my visits to madinah but if this was a true miracle, I'm sure I would have heard of it.
Also, when I was googling it, people only refused the narration and the miracle bit but everyone agreed that the pic wasn't photoshopped. And it doesn't look photoshopped to me, there's definitely something there (perhaps it was temporary) ??GS - It's all about enjoying the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

As far as I remember, prophet was very kind and forgiving,
- Apr 15th, 2010, 03:19 PM #11
Allah and his Rasool saw are forgiving. No doubt. But the history also tells us how punishment was brought over those who repeatedly committed sin, even after the prophets of that time warned them over n over again. Remember the people who were turned into monkeys?
There are various other examples of azaabs like these that Allah swt brought upon corrupt tribes, as a warning for the rest of the world.
This "miracle", however, still doesn't seem convincing. There would be an uproar among the muslim community if someone was to leave a dead body on the top of the mosque! Secondly, have u seen the size of the mosque Mashallah?? Even an idiot would know that one can't destroy it with hand-held tools, so its highly unlikely someone would have climbed up the roof with that intention!

the only explanation can be
1) a maintenance door or something for structural purposes
2) Rasulullah (saw)'s grave is directly below it so to stop workers from walking over the grave..etc
Not to even mention it's AGAINST sharia !!!!
and the story people usually connect with this 'myth' is a true story (Allah knows best) ::
It was a peaceful night in Damascus in the year 1162 A.D. He had just gone to bed after completing his mid-night
prayers. As he descended into deep snooze, a noble saint with face shining came to him and pointing towards two
men with blue eyes, said, “Protect me from these two”. He just could not absorb it anymore and woke up trembling
in distress. He performed ablution and offered prayers and again went to sleep. The same saint interrupted him
again asking to protect against the evil of the two men. He woke up again and offered prayers and went to bed. The
dream repeated for the third time and he just jumped out of this bed asserting, “It’s too much of slumber!!” He
immediately called for his noble vizier Jamal Ad Din and shared his dream with him. The vizier advised him to keep
the matter undisclosed and immediately head off to Madina.
The man was Sultan Nur Ad Din Zangi, who ruled the Muslim lands bordering Crusader States in Palestine during
tenth century. The noble saint who came in the dream was Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) himself. The
Sultan departed for Madina with a few men and loads of luggage on speedy camels. After sixteen days of journey
the royal caravan entered Madina. The Sultan went straight to the Prophet’s Mosque and offered two raka’s of
prayers. After while he gathered Medinaites and began distributing valuable gifts. Then began the royal feast for all
the inhabitants under strict orders from the Sultan that no one was allowed to miss. Meanwhile the Sultan kept
careful eye on all the attendees to recognize the faces of the two men whom Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon
Him) had pointed to. The feast passed on but all in vain. The Sultan asked curiously if anyone was left out from the
feast, the crowd denied. It was after repeated insistence by the Sultan that he came to know about the two
westerners staying near the mausoleum of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). They had a public
reputation of being celibates purely devoted to prayers all the time. They were brought before Sultan who took no
time recognizing them; they were the same blue-eyed men shown in his dream. The Sultan inquired about their
identities and motives. They cunningly produces the story that they were pilgrims from the West, had come to
attend annual Hajj but the strong desire to stay nearer to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) held them
in Medina. The Sultan went into their room where all he could find were some scattered books. This situation left the
Sultan in serious puzzle amid frequent requests of pardon by the Madinaites defending the two men being very
pious who would regularly visit Jannat al Baqee Graveyard and would generously spend in charity during drought
years. The embarrassing situation remained until an idea struck Sultan’s mind and he quickly removed the prayer
mat where there was a rock. He removed the rock and in his extreme shock and anger found a tunnel dug deep
leading to Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace Be Upon Him) grave. The Sultan immediately arrested the two men and
forced them to disclose the reality. The two men revealed that they were Christian spies dispatched and funded for
a special mission by Christian Kings to enter prophet’s grave and take his body away. The Sultan infuriated by the
plot, had those evil spies executed . Moreover under his orders, a channel dug around the
Prophet’s grave and filled with molten copper to protect his grave from any further mischievous attempts forever.

It does not look like a permanent piece. Maybe an auto dome washer like we have automatic window washer on high rise buildings.
If you look at the satellite picture, looking from left to right (which lines itself with the picture of post number 5) you do not see that structure.
madina - Google Maps
In fact in post number 5, you can see ropes going to and coming from that thing, making it look like something the is used to polish the dome.My father believed that if the world found out who I really was they'd reject me out of fear.
