Under the primitive Saudi clan, nothing is safe as far as Islam's holy sites are concerned. A new report has emerged that recommends destroying the Green Dome over the Prophet's (saws) tomb and relocating his body to Baqi Cemetery to be interred in an unmarked grave. Muslims worldwide should take note and act before this sacrilegious act is perpetrated by the sworn enemies of Allah, His Prophet (saws) and Islam.

There appears no limit to the hatred the Saudi clan from Najd has for Islam and the noble Messenger (saws). Consider this: a controversial plan has emerged that calls for demolishing the tomb of the noble Messenger (saws) and relocating his body to the Baqi‘ Cemetery to be interred in an unmarked grave.

The latest proposal, though not new, is the brainchild of Ali ibn Abdulaziz al-Shabal, professor at Imam Muhammad ibn Saud University in Riyadh. His 61-page document has been circulated among the supervisors of al-Masjid al-Nabawi in Madinah, where the noble Messenger (saws) is laid to rest. A Green Dome above marks the site of the grave.

According to the document whose contents were referred to by the British daily, The Independent newspaper on Monday (September 1), the rooms surrounding the tomb should be destroyed and the Green Dome demolished in preparation for removal of the Prophet’s (saws) body from there.

The rooms surrounding the tomb were used by the Prophet’s (saws) family—wives and daughters—in early Islamic history.

“[Once relocated to Baqi], the Prophet’s [(saws) grave] would be anonymous,” Dr Irfan al-Alawi, director of the Islamic Heritage Research Foundation, told the British daily adding, “Everything around the Prophet’s mosque has already been destroyed. It is surrounded by bulldozers. Once they’ve removed everything they can move towards the mosque.”

While a final decision about demolishing the Green Dome and relocating the Prophet’s (saws) body has not been taken, the fact that the Saudis can even consider such a possibility is outrageous and is bound to inflame Muslims worldwide.

The Saudi clan emerged from the desert of Najd and follows a narrow literalist interpretation of Islam that the overwhelming majority of Muslims completely reject. Yet by illegally occupying the entire Arabian Peninsula, including the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, the clan has shown visceral hatred towards the noble Messenger (saws), nastaghfirullah, and Islam.

The overwhelming majority of Muslims, following the teachings of the Qur’an show great love and respect to the noble Messenger (saws). The Saudi/Wahhabi literalists misinterpret this as “Bid‘a” (innovation in Deen) and “shirk” (associating partners with Allah).

The very fact that the Arabian Peninsula, so name by the noble Messenger (saws), has been renamed “Saudi” Arabia, as if the primitive clan owns the land, is the biggest form of bida and shirk.

Unfortunately, this simple truth seems to have escaped the court ulama and their equally obliging “professors” at universities.

The planned attack on the Prophet’s (saws) tomb is not the first instance is Saudi history. Only a few years ago, the Municipality in Madinah changed the colour of the Green Dome to white.

There are numerous other domes with silver colour. There is only one Green Dome. This was done in preparation for destroying it and hoodwinking the Muslims in to believing that a silver dome has been destroyed.

This sacrilegious act may have gone largely unnoticed but for the fact that the people of Madinah came out to protest. This was a rare example of courage in the face of the regime’s extreme brutality toward any form of dissent.

Under public pressure, the municipality was forced to re-paint the dome back to its original green colour.

The Saudi regime has appointed Abdul Rahman al-Sudais, who performs the duties of Imam in Masjid al-Haram, to oversee the expansion project. This is done on the pretext that huge numbers of pilgrims visit Makkah and Madinah each year.

While true, there are alternate ways to expand the facilities without destroying the historic sites of Islam. The Saudis and their court ulama, however, are motivated by very different considerations.

They want to element important historical sites—95 percent of these have been destroyed in Makkah, according the Washington-based Gulf Institute—and they are busy targeting the Prophet’s (saws) Mosque and tomb.

It is revealing that everything related to Abdulaziz ibn Saud, founder of the Saudi “kingdom” has been preserved.

Muslims should ask themselves: are the artefacts of ibn Saud more important than the final resting place of the noble Messenger (saws) of Allah? And who gave the Saudi corrupters the authority to make decisions for the entire Muslim Ummah?

The Saudi ideology of hatred have given the world such monstrosities as the takfiris (otherwise called the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Sham) that have gone on a rampage in Syria and Iraq murdering innocent people.

The world of Islam must take serious note of the latest Saudi outrage before it is too late.

Muslims should also seriously plan for the removal of this corrupt regime and its thieving members from power.
