Yaume Gham | Day of Sorrow

Postby abuali » 28 Oct 2006, 11:33

JANNATUL-BAQEE’ (YAUME GHAM)

On 8th Shawwal, Wednesday, in the year 1345 AH, (April 21st 1925) the mausoleums in Jannatul-Baqee’ in Madina were demolished by King Ibn Sau’d. In the same year, he also demolished the tombs of holy personages at Jannatul-Muallah where the Holy Prophet (saww)’s mother, wife, grandfather and other ancestors are buried.

Destruction of the sacred sites in Hijaz by the Saudi Wahhabis continues even today. According to some scholars what is happening today in Hijaz is actually a conspiracy under the guise of Tawheed to eradicate the Islamic legacy and heritage and to systematically remove all its vestiges so that in the days to come, Muslims will have no affiliation with their religious history. This was a Zionist conspiracy.

Literally “al-Baqee’” means a tree garden. It is also known as Jannatul-Baqee’ due to its sanctity, since in it are buried many of our Prophet (saww)’s relatives and companions.

The first companion of the Holy Prophet (saww) to be buried there was ‘Uthman bin Ma’dhoon. He died on 3rd Sha’ban 3 AH. The Holy Prophet (saww) ordered certain trees to be felled, and in its midst, he buried his dear companion, placing two stones over the grave.

Ebrahim, the son of the Holy Prophet (saww) who died later and over whom the Holy Prophet (saww) bitterly wept, was also buried there. The people of Madina then began to use the site for the burial of their own dead because the Holy Prophet (saww) used to greet those who were buried in Jannatul-Baqee’ saying:

“Peace be upon you, O abode of the faithful! God willing, we should soon join you. O Allah! Forgive the fellows of al-Baqee’”.

The burial site was later expanded at al-Baqee’. Nearly seven thousand of the Holy Prophet (saww)’s companions were buried there and many of his family members including the Ahlul-Bayt (as) praised in the Holy Quran. They are Sayyida Fatima (as) –the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (saww), Imam al-Hasan (as), Imam ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn (as), Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (as) and Imam Ja’ffar al-Sadiq (as).


Other relatives include:

Safiyya and Aatika (his aunts)

Fatima bint Asad (his aunt and mother of Imam ‘Ali)

‘Uthaman bin ‘Affaan, the third caliph of the Muslims was initially buried outside al-Baqee’ but later on, due to expansion of the burial ground, his grave was included in the area. In later years, great Muslim scholars like Malik bin Anas and many others were buried there too. Thus al-Baqee’ became a well known place of great significance to all Muslims.

Ibn Batuta, the famous traveller has said, “At al-Baqee are the graves of numerous Muhajireen and Ansaar and many companions of the Holy Prophet (saww), except that most of their names are unknown”.

Al-Baqee was razed to the ground with no sign of any grave or tomb.

On this sad occasion of Yaume Gham, we pray to Allah (SWT) to curse the greatest Munafiqeen of our time, the Wahhabis and avenge the oppression that they have and are continuing to commit against Islam and the Muslims.
