      - After the martyrdom of the family of the Prophet at Kerbala in 61 Hijri, the Ummayad Caliph Yazid Ibne Moawiya did not stop there in the pursuit of his destruction. He sent a large contingent under the command of Haseen Ibne Namir to Madina which destroyed the Mosque of the Prophet. They did not stop there but proceeded to Makka and demolished the four walls of the Ka’aba and killed thousands of muslims who protested. Yazid died and Ibne Namir returned to Damascus, Ka’aba was rebuilt by Abdullah Ibne Zubayr and his associates. Umawi forces came back to Makka and killed Abdullah Ibne Zubayr, hung his body on the gates of the Ka’aba for three months for all to see the Umawi power. But eventually this arrogance of power brought its own consequences and Mukhtar became the ruler in Iraq. Under his guidance the Ka’aba was refurbished and pilgrims began to arrive in safety to perform Hajj.

      Another historian:

      - In the year 683 AD, during the second fitna or civil war within early Islam, a rebel leader named ‘Abdullah ibn Zubayr held the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. The Caliph Yazid Ibne Moawiya, ruling from Damascus, sent an army to take the holy cities. To the enduring scandal of Muslims, Yazid’s general bombarded Mecca with catapults, and during the siege the holy Ka‘aba itself caught fire, the wooden parts of the structure burning, and the sacred Black Stone itself — venerated as the center of the Meccan pilgrimage — broke in three pieces due to fire. Yazid died soon thereafter, and many saw this as divine punishment for the sacrilege. Yazid’s name was sometimes equated with the devil in later years, not only for the bombardment of Mecca but for his earlier role in the death of the Prophet’s grandson Imam Hussein.

      - In 930 AD, a radical sectarian group known as the Qarmatians raided Mecca and carried off the Black Stone itself, keeping it for some 20 years until forced to return it.)

      - In the year 1981 the Wahabis brought tanks inside the ka’aba to crush the kahtani revolution against the Saudi regime and almost demolished the South Eastern Wall. This was later restored with the help of the Makkan people.

      - Kaaba Walls Torn Down by Saudis - News Story, October, 1996

      Muslims are outraged at the demolition of the walls of the holiest site in Islam, the Kaaba, in Mecca al-Mukarramah. The unique cubical stone building towards which nearly 2 billion Muslims direct their faces in prayer, has been taken down and replaced by a plywood box. Muslims visiting for 'Umrah reported that the walls of the Kaaba, including the beautifully decorated gold door, the stone of the Yemeni corner, and even al-Multazam (threshold of the Kaaba's door) have all been taken away. These reports are confirmed by many persons in Makkah. They reiterate that all that remains of the Kaaba, which was once rebuilt under the gaze of our Prophet Muhammad (s)1 is an empty shell with only the Black Stone in place.

      At no time in Islamic history has the Kaaba been destroyed in this manner, except when fighting has caused its destruction. In the past many Muslim rulers have made construction to strengthen and support the Kaaba, keeping the original house in place. The Kaaba was structurally sound before its demolition two months ago, so there was no reason for the supposed restoration. This action by the Saudi authorities has prompted outrage by Muslims and their officials. The Saudi regime has not responded to high level communiques from Muslim governments, and no satisfactory explanation has been given for their destruction of this holy site. The unofficial explanation, filtered out by Saudi spokespersons, remains that they have only erected the wooden box around the Kaaba in order to prevent harm to pilgrims during renovation, and that the four months of work has simply been to erect some pillars to strengthen support for the roof after heavy rains caused it damage.


      - According to sunnah.org : Unconfirmed reports have the Saudi government selling pieces of the Kaaba to unnamed buyers, and indicate they may be digging for treasure under the site occupied by the Kaaba, as they did with the well of Zamzam some years ago.

      Someone tell me more about the Kahtani revolution. I have heard about, but mostly rumors. I know something happened, and there was a hostage situation, and French soldiers had to come in.

      I cant believe people actually buy such crap.

      Jewels in the prophets grave?
      Treasure underneath the Kabaa?
      Saudi Govt selling peices of Kabaa?

      You gotta have a room temp IQ, in order to believe in such stuff.

      Most of the sources mentioned above are of random people, arab haters and are not in any way verified.

      As far as demolishing some of the stuff, i agree the Saudi Govt has demolished quite a few stuff. There was a datepalm tree that bore dates, the kalima written on it. Saudis had to uproot the tree after they found people, prostrating and praying at the tree.

      Janah tul Baqee was re arranged because, in Islam, the height of the grave should be no more than the amount of sand displaced by the body.

      It's true that holy Kabaa has been 'destroyed' by some very nasty people in history. The Evil people will get what they deserve.

      Ever heard of The Qarmatiyyah?

      Read the following:

      The Qarmatiyyah is an Isma'ilite Shi'ite community which settled mainly in the Bahrein peninsula in the 10th century. There are different opinions about the origins of the name of the movement; one of the more common views is that it derives from the name of an early convert, Hamdan b. Qarmat, a cattle breeder and driver who lived in the second half of the 9th century.

      The movement acquired its impetus from the belief in the imminent return of the Mahdi. This impetus expressed itself in a number of attacks carried out by the movement into Iraq, one of which threatened to capture the Abbasid capital Baghdad.

      In 930 the Qarmatis attacked Mecca during the pilgrimage season, killing many residents and pilgrims, and removed the black stone of the ka'bah. The removal of the Black Stone symbolised the Qarmati claim that Islam had now come to an end. (It was not until 951 that the Black Stone was returned to Mecca.)

      http://mb-soft.com/believe/txw/qarmati.htm

      The leveling of the graves in the Baqi was done in accordance to the Hadith of Rasool Allah (swt) that the graves should be with level of the ground and not made into shrines.

      The Crescent and the Star have no Islamic significance. They were introduced much later by the Turks.

      lot of practises are common among many religens



      Circumambulation


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Circumambulation is the movement around a holy object, or of a holy object. The completion of a circle of protection, or of community, creates an integrity that is otherwise difficult to obtain in this world. The application of this in religions is diverse: examples include the Hajj (the Muslim circumambulation of the Ka'ba); the Prayer Wheel in Tibet; the stupa and Bo tree in Buddhism; the respect shown to the Adi Granth on entering a gurdwara; Lavan; the Hindu "following the sun" around the sacred fire and, in the temple (and, in pradaksina, to go around any sacred object, person, or place, including the whole of India; the seven circuits (hakkafot) around a cemetery before a burial by Sephardi and Hasidic Jews. In Witchcraft the magic circle would be a circumambulation. A.G.H.

      Yes I am aware of'em. Strange, you quoted my whole post but you failed to read Qarmatians in it. :-|


      BTW, Rasulallah (saww) forbade a lot other things but I see saudies and thier "followers" still doing them. How unfortunate, isn'it?

      just a design....

      they put many other designs also on the top of mosques....
      the crescent just seems to have been most hit....
      Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
