The Prophets tomb in Medina is today’s biggest idol. Ironically, it also represents the most profound defiance against God and the Prophet Muhammad.
We know that Hadith is Satan’s invention attributed to the Prophet Muhammad in order to mislead the Muslims. They think that they love Muhammad, but it is the same as the Christians’ love for Jesus. For those who believe in Hadith, here is a “Sahih” (authentic) Hadith from Bukhary’s Volume 6, Page 14 (Al-Nawawy’s edition):
أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدُ بْنُ الْحَارِثِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيَّبِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ” لَعَنَ اللَّهُ قَوْمًا اتَّخَذُوا قُبُورَ أَنْبِيَائِهِمْ مَسَاجِدَ ” .
It was narrated from Aishah that the Prophet said:
“May Allah curse people who take the graves of their prophets as Masjids.”
Grade: Sahih (Darussalam)
IDOL-WORSHIP BY MOHAMEDANS EXCEEDS ALL LIMITS
The Quran talks about ONE SACRED MOSQUE, but the idol-worshiping Muslims talk about TWO SACRED MOSQUES!!! They created a Sacred Mosque, out of the prophet Muhammad’s tomb, besides “The Sacred Mosque.” Is this not idolatry? As shown above, this goes even against Hadith, their own false teachings attributed to the Prophet.
The Quran teaches that the Prophet is dead (39:30), powerless even when he was alive (72:21), totally unaware (5:109), cannot hear anybody (16:21), even if he heard anybody, he can do nothing (35:14), and will disown and be the enemy of those who idolize him (46:5). Here is a real life demonstration of idolatry committed by the Mohamedans – I reprint it here without comment, from a newspaper that is printed in the U.S.A. in 1988:
(Message from Ahmad Wehbe)
Peace be upon you,
The Muslim reader should take heed and witness here yet another great blasphemy and contradiction from the hadiths.
You have a sahih hadith where the prophet prohibits and curses those who build masjids from the graves of prophets.
But then we have the following hadiths that completely insult and contradict each other:
Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet (ﷺ) as saying “Journey should not be made(to visit any masjid) except towards three masjids: The sacred masjid(of Makkah), this masjid of mine and Al Aqsa masjid(in Jerusalem). Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani)
Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet said: “One prayer in this Masjid of mine is better than a thousand prayers in any other Masjid except Al-Masjid Al-Kabah.’” Grade: Sahih (Darussalam)
Not only are these hadiths claiming that prophet Muhammad promoted the idea of building a masjid on his tomb, but also that praying in it is a 1000 times better than any other masjid.
The hadiths are accusing prophet Muhammad of telling people to worship him! How dare the muslim scholars promote hadith after this knowledge?
Concerning Rashad’s call for the destruction of the prophet’s tomb, we have to understand the thought behind it.
God doesn’t want us to destroy people’s tombs. The believers are not tomb-raiders.
So the point here is to destroy the idol-worship surrounding the prophet’s tomb. One solution is to turn the prophet’s masjid into a museum and removing all traces of idol-worship, such as the prayers written on the wall and stop doing salat inside the building.
We have to understand that the prophet is innocent, how would you feel if someone built a house of worship on top of your tomb, and then comes a day where people destroyed the house, including your tomb, even though your tomb is innocent of the crime committed by those who built a house of worship on your tomb?
Where is the justice in that?
Currently there is a proposal to destroy the masjid of the prophet and move the tomb to a secret location. However, it is better to teach people NOT to commit idol-worship.
We’re not solving anything by destroying the prophet’s masjid and moving the tomb if the people are still idol-worshipers and have not fixed their behaviour.
What’s next, ban the Quran? Ban the hadith? Ban history books? Ban freedom of speech so nobody can teach about prophet Muhammad?
Bad teachings yield bad students, the solution here is for the Islamic scholars to stop teaching people to praise Muhammad. Teach the people the truth. Muhammad was not infallible, there was nothing special about him (except the choices any righteous person can make today), he lived and he died just like anybody else. And if people can’t accept that, then they are not Muslims, they are idol-worshipers.
If you want to love prophet Muhammad, then love him for his strife, love him as a brother in faith. Love him for not giving up on delivering the Quran despite all the hate and attacks he had to endure because of it. This is what should inspire us and our children, that no matter what the world attacks us with, we should continue to fulfill God’s commands, just like how the prophet did.
If you can’t see prophet Muhammad as a human just like you, then you are ignoring the prophet’s pain and difficulties that he had to endure. And that’s the greatest insult to any man, to not acknowledge their strife!
When a masjid is built on top of the prophet’s tomb for people to pray and praise Muhammad, it counts as backstabbing the prophet and insulting everything the prophet did and strived for, that God is the only One worthy of our worship!
The Muslim Ummah should know this themselves, a stranger on the internet shouldn’t be the one teaching them this. Maybe it is time for the Muslim Ummah to demand better scholars who teach only using the Quran!
Thank you and GOD bless.
