5 Islamic Sites Legacy of Prophet That Have Disappeared

moslimdaily.com – The long journey of the Prophet’s da’wah left a number of traces in the form of historical sites which are now scattered in various regions of the Arabian peninsula.

The relics of the Apostles should have been preserved and maintained. But did you know? Among the many historical sites left by the Prophet, his family and friends in Saudi Arabia, it turns out that some have disappeared due to human activities. Anything?

Here are 5 relics of the Prophet Muhammad SAW that have disappeared:

1. The house that the Prophet once lived

In the last two decades, The Gulf Institute, based in the capital city of Washington DC, United States, noted that Riyadh has destroyed 95 percent of all buildings over a thousand years old. years in Mecca and Medina.

The expansion of the Grand Mosque also invites protests and criticism from various parties. Around the Kaaba, various shopping centers, hotels, and tall buildings have sprung up.

There is now the Jabal Umar complex which consists of apartments, hotels and the world’s tallest clock tower. To realize this project, Saudi Arabia bulldozed the Ajyad Fort during the Ottoman Caliphate. In this complex there is also the house of the Prophet Muhammad which has now been turned into a mosque library.

2. Destruction of the tomb of the Prophet

April 21, 1925, the Jannatul Baqi cemetery where the family of the Prophet Muhammad was buried was destroyed by King Abdul Aziz bin Saud of Saudi Arabia. Here lay Shafiah (the aunt of the Prophet),

Ibrahim, the son of the Prophet, and many others, including the son of Umar bin Khattab, and the mother of Ali bin Abi Talib, Fatimah bint Asad.

Saudi reasoned that it took a lot of spending to maintain and reconstruct the tombs because many of the buildings had been damaged.

It is very wasteful to waste state money to repair graves. Shortly after giving financial reasons, the Saudi government built a luxury hotel with a giant clock on it around the Kaaba.

It’s a shame and seems to make it up, it’s really a country that doesn’t value historical heritage.

3. Khadijah’s house becomes a toilet.

The expansion of the Al-Haram Mosque, besides the prophet’s house which has now been turned into a mosque library, it turns out that there is also the house of Siti Khadijah, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad.

Worse than the fate of the house of the Prophet Muhammad, the building that was occupied by Khadijah in the past was turned into a toilet.

The toilet has similarities with a small room used to defecate. This is considered an insult to the wife of the Prophet.

5. Plans to destroy the tomb of the Prophet

The government of Saudi Arabia will destroy the tomb of the Prophet Muhammad. The Prophet’s tomb is located in the second holiest mosque after the Al-Haram Mosque in the city of Mecca. The goal is to expand the Prophet’s Mosque?

The construction of the mosque is indeed necessary, but the government’s plan for the Two Holy Cities is really worrying because the expansion will be carried out in the west, where the tomb of the Prophet and his two friends, Abu Bakr as-Siddiq and Umar bin Khattab.
