Moosavi’s message marking Day Of Demolition Of Baqee Cemetery
Objective of human life is worship of Allah while height and acme of worship is piousness and on this basis the foundation of human moral system is and the standard of human dignity has been declared piousness . And piousness is the name of avoiding evil moral and adorning oneself with good moral . The Holy Prophet (SAW) while pointing towards his heart said: (Piousness is here), and respect of Sha’a’ir-Ullah is from amongst the piousness of hearts , (whosoever respects Sha’a’ir Allah, no doubt it is from piousness of hearts).
Sha’a’ir is the plural of Sha’eerah, the meaning of which is sign and mark. Except Allah everything in this world is the sign of His presence but respect of everything is not binding while respect for Sha’a’ir-Ullah is declared a must and these are (The signs of Allah’s religion).
And it is written in
translation Sheikh-ul-Hind Hazrat Maulana Mahmoodul Hassan Sahib, Tafseer Sheikh-ul-Islam Hazrat Maulana Shabbir Ahmed Sahib Usmani, page 447, Quranic Part 17, Surah Hajj 22, Box F-5, that “respect for Sha’a’ir-Ullah is not included in polytheism, whosoever in whose heart there is piousness and he fears from Allah alone, would definitely respect everything attached with the name of Allah. This giving respect is not polytheism rather in line with the signs of monotheism that lover for Allah respects everything that is attached with the name of Allah.” It is written on page 446, Outline 11: “the things Allah declared respectable, keeping the respect of the same is a big capability and piousness and result of which would be the best. The things declared respectable include sacrificial animals, Bait-Ullah, Safa, Marwah, Mina, Arafat, mosques, Quran rather all commandments of Allah.”
Therefore, about Safa and Marwah, Allah Says , the sacrificial animal is termed Sha’a’ir-Ullah and Muzdalfah is called Mash’ar because these are the signs of Allah’s religion. In other words Manasik-e-Hajj are considered Sha’a’ir-Ullah because these are the signs of religion of Islam.
So when everything that is declared the sign of Divine religion, its respect becomes a must and a source of pleasure of Allah. The greatest signs are Prophets, Messengers, and Righteous through whom the religion achieved height and acme. Thus when all Prophets (A.S.) have been declared the signs then the Holy Prophet (SAW) who is chief of all Prophets and Messengers and his Ahle Bait At’haar, or holy progeny (A.S.), Sahaba Kibaar, or great companions (R.A.) are declared the greatest and best signs of religion and Shariah in a most perfect level. Their respect and respect of everything named after them, their signs, portents and graves is binding because respect is the display of love and devotion while the love of holy family of Muhammad (A.S.) has been declared as Ajr-e-Risalat (Say O, Rasool! I do not ask you for any wages but that love my near and dear ones).
When it is settled that love with them is a must then it is binding on the Muslim Ummah to consider their holy shrines as respectable because signs and graves of holy family of Apostleship (A.S.) are the symbol of religion’s purity and their protection, defense, care, survival, construction and renovation is the zenith of religion and Shariah and in it lay the success, survival and welfare of the Islamic World as well as a proof of our heartfelt love and devotion.
Sahaba Kibaar, or Prophet (SAW)’s great companions (R.A.), also respected everything that is connected with the Messenger (SAW) so as to express their heartfelt love and devotion and consider it holistic. Bukhari has established a chapter in his Sahih in which he mentioned the armour, staff, sword, bowl, ring and other articles of the Prophet (SAW) that were respected by Sabaha Kibaar (R.A.) while Moey-e-Mubarik (hair), Na’alain Mubarik (shoes) and utensils used by the Prophet (SAW) were considered holistic by Sahaba and non-Sahaba alike.
Zaid bin Saabit (R.A.) was riding a horse one day, that Ibne Abbas (R.A.) held the Rakaab (stirrup), Zaid (R.A.) said: O, the son of Rasool’s (SAW) uncle, leave it. Thus Ibne Abbas (R.A.) said we have been told to respect scholars and elders in this way, Zaid (R.A.) asked him to show his hand. Ibne Abbas (R.A.) took out his hand, and Zaid (R.A.) kissed his hand and said, we have been directed to behave like this with the Ahle Bait of our Prophet (SAW).
But it is tragic that today more than three-fourth of the century (1926-2003) has passed and Jannatul Muallah (Makkah-tul-Mukarramah) and Jannatul Baqee (Madina-tul-Munawwarah), where wives of Prophet (SAW), Sahaba Kibaar (R.A.), Ahle Bait At’haar (A.S.) and best of them personality Umme A’aimmah-tul-Huda Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A.) daughter of Rasool-e-Khuda who is the Mistress of the Women of World and for whose respect Paighambar-e-Islam (SAW) used to stand up until she sits down and kiss her hands, are lying destructed but the Islamic World is keeping a quiet. Does it (Islamic World) ever think that what is the biggest reason of its disrespect? Today, international colonial powers and her agents have made its life difficult and despite enriched with a host of resources it is continuously victim of their oppression and brutality, why? New traps are being laid and new tactics are being implemented, the day in and day out; after Afghanistan and Iraq, among other States, Saudi Arabia is their biggest target, but why? It provides food for thought to Aal-e-Saud… think!! And think more O, The Men of Understanding!! The main reason behind it is we have violated the respect, honour and dignity of those holy personalities whose respect and reverence was made binding on us and love to whom was made obligatory for us.
If the Islamic World desires an end of decline then it would have to restore the respect and dignity of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Muallah otherwise they should be ready to take on more problems and difficulties.
We reiterate our commitment on 8th Shawwal, the day of tragic incident of Inhidam Jannatul Baqee, or the Day of Demolition of Cemetery of Baqee, (that is observed every year by the only representative organization of Maktab-e-Tashayyo Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan, the world over like it is observed in motherland Pakistan with due respect and dignity) that we would continue our struggle for promotion of religion and Shariah, reconstruction, renovation and restoration of dignity of signs and graves of family of prophethood and Apostleship (A.S.), Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Muallah.
Therefore, we strongly demand from the powers that be that under the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement that is binding on them (the government), they should exert pressure on Saudi government on diplomatic level for reconstruction of the same. We also appeal all international organizations including United Nations, UNESCO (that is responsible for the protection of archaeology), European Union, OIC, Arab League, ICC to give their attention towards this important international, human, constitutional, moral and religious issue as in it lay the welfare and supremacy not only of Islam but that of whole humanity also.
Khakpai Ahle Islam,
Where is her (SA) grave?
The Muslims have been deeply pained.
