Wahabiyyat established its roots in the second half of the 12th century Hijra at the hands of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab Najdi (1155-1206 Hijra). He smoothened the roots of his religion by giving new lease of life to the principles of Ibne Temiyya (died in 0727 Hijra). The ideologies of Ibne Temiyya could be divided into two parts. Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab accepted the first part i.e. his beliefs and ideologies and developed a new Maslak with a new outfit in the name of beliefs and ideologies of their elders. The backing of Aal-e-Saud gave a new lease of life to Wahabiyyat’s invitation and they started taking undue advantage of the Usmani Sultanate’s weakness. Thousands of people were murdered and their property damaged by them in the name of Shirk. Their biggest “achievement” is murder of Arab Sardars, looting and destruction of neighbours’ property, and infiltration into the Iraqi territory from time to time. Traitor Arab Sardars jumped into the fray to see an end of a big Islamic State when colonial powers prepared a plan to finish off the Usmani Sultanate in a bid to become independent ruler of their respective areas.
During the World War-I when many States were passing through the war clouds, the chief of the Saud family was Sultan Abdel Aziz, father of former Saudi head of State Shah Fahd. The wicked colonial powers, winning the war, thought it beneficial to hand over the biggest holy centre of the Islamic World to their most subservient servant, Aal-e-Saud. It was in this fashion that the holiest city of the Islamic World fell into their hand, pushed under the control of evil, brutal and oppressor family. Their motive became evident soon in the name of Tauheed to destroy religious residences and holy places, wiping out the signs of Tauheed-o-Risalat, destruction of books carrying Islamic principles had been the sole objective of this government for many years spread over from 1344 Hijra to-date.
The Wahhabis believed that visiting the graves and the shrines of the Prophets, the Imams, or the saints was a form of idolatry and totally un-Islamic. Those who did not conform with their belief were killed and their property was confiscated. Since their first invasion of Iraq, and till nowadays, in fact, the Wahhabis, as well as other rulers of the Gulf States, having been carrying out massacres from which no Muslim who disagreed with them was spared.
Obviously, the rest of the Islamic World viewed those graves with deep reverence. Had it not been so, the two caliphs Abu Bakr and Umar would not have expressed their desire for burial near the grave of the Prophet (s).
On 8th Shawaal, 1345 Hijra (August 1925) the then Saudi rulers bulldozed the holy places in Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Mualla in Makkah Muazzama and Madina Munawwarah (the centres of the Islamic World) where holy graves of Holy Prophet’s elders, Aal-e-Athaar (A.S.), Azwaaj-e-Rasool (saw), Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) and Tabaeen (R.A.) were situated.
In the same year (1925), King Ibn Saud also demolished the tombs of holy personages at Jannat al-Mualla (Makkah) where the Holy Prophet (s)’s mother, wife, grandfather and other ancestors are buried.
Muslim Ummah’s silence towards this transgression turned their carnage towards religious Shrines of Karbala, Baghdad, Mecca and Syria leading to atrocities in Palestine. Cronies to Al-e-Saud due insensitive Arab Leaders and in collaboration with Israel and America are massacring muslims across the world.
In addition to the destruction of holy places all those mosques were also bulldozed that had some link with holy personalities, in one way or the other, so that no one could remember these personalities while offering prayers in these mosques. Another part of the report is worth consideration and tragic that like Makkah Mukarrama, some of the mosques in Madina Munawwarah also met the similar fate. These mosques were also destructed like the tombs of other shrines.
