Qom Ayat calls upon all Muslims to mourn ‘Baqee Demolition Day’

By: Sheikh M Khurasani

HOLY CITY OF QOM, Iran: Qom Ayatollah Shaykh Lutfullah as-Safi Gulpaygani while terming the day of Shawal 8 as the ‘Day of Mourning’ has called upon all the Muslims to strongly condemn the great crimes committed at the hands of Saudi rulers against the holy cemetery of Al-Baqee, the cemetery of Ahli Bait-on Nabi Al-Karim (S), hold grand majalis al-aza and mourning processions so that no one forget this sinful injustice against Islam, Quran and the personality of Chief of Prophets (S) and his holy progeny (AS).

On Shawal 8, 1344 AH (25 April 1925), the then Saudi rulers bulldozed the holy shrines of Prophet Muhammad (S)’s daughter Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (AS), Imam Hasan Al-Mojtaba (AS), Imam Zainul Abideen (AS), Imam Muhammad Baqer (AS), Imam Jafar Sadiq (AS), companions, ancestors, and wives of Prophet (S) housed in the cemetery of Al-Baqee, holy city of Medinah, Saudi Arabia.

The Ayatollah urged the need to reconstruct these holy shrines and sites particularly the place of birth of Prophet in Makkah, graves of Prophet’s daughter, wife, grandfather, paternal uncles i.e. Abu Talib and Hamzah, and four imams from his progeny calling for the protection of these matchless prides of Islam.
