قررت السعودية هدم وجرف ضريح النبي محمد (ص) وثلاثة مساجد تعود إلى فترة الخلفاء الراشدين في المدينة المنوّرة. وبذلك، تكون آخر المعالم التراثية المدينية قد تعرضت للإزالة، لتحل محلها أبنية حديثة. برر السعوديون قرار تجريف الضريح النبوي ببناء مسجد ضخم. في مكة ــــ التي تم تجريف معظم تراثها المعماري ــــ كان المبرر هو نفسه؛ إقامة مساجد حديثة ومنشآت وفنادق فخمة.
كتب: ناهض حتر في جريدة الأخبار:
وقع مهدا الإسلام، مكة والمدينة، تحت حكم آل سعود عام 1924، حين تمكنت قواتهم من إسقاط مملكة الحجاز المستقلة وطرد الملك علي بن الحسين. مذذاك، خضعت المدينتان التاريخيتان للتجريف المنظم وفق العقلية الوهابية التي تنفر من العُمران الديني والتراث المعماري الحضري والنسيج الاجتماعي المديني المتراكم عبر العصور، وتعالجه بالهدم والإزالة.
هذه العدوانية الوحشية ضد التاريخ الاجتماعي المتجسد عُمرانا، ينطلق، عند الوهابيين، من عقيدة البساطة المزعومة أصلا دينيا، والتي تعبّر عن نزعة صحراوية معادية للحضارة، وتجد في تدمير تجلياتها المادية، طريقة حاسمة في إظهار سطوة المنع والتحريم لمظاهرها الروحية. لكن، ماذا عن العُمران المضادّ؟.
أقام السعوديون نظاماً رأسمالياً مشوهاً. وهو تدرّج في النمو على أساس النيوليبرالية المتوحّشة، في نسخة كمبرادورية نفطية تشغل فيها النخب الحاكمة والتجارية، موقع الوكيل المحلي للرأسمالية الغربية والعالمية في سوق مفتوح غير مقيّد بالشروط الاجتماعية والثقافية التي تعرقله أو تحدّ من غلوائه في بلدان أخرى. وقد استفادت الكمبرادورية السعودية من الوهابيّة كأيديولوجيا مسيطرة تأذن بالتخلّص من تلك الشروط، وتسمح بالهدم، حتى حين يتعلق الأمر بالعمران النبوي، من أجل التوسّع في النشاط العقاري وتحويل الحج إلى موسم سياحي تديره، في فنادق الخمس نجوم، شركات رأسمالية غربية، حيث تناهز كلفة الحج البرجوازي الواحد، الخمسة عشر ألف دولار.
الوهابية، بالنسبة للسلطة السعودية، أداة قمع للوعي الوطني والاجتماعي الحديث، تنتهي مفاعيلها حين يتعلق الأمر بالتبعية للخارج وسيطرة الإمبريالية على البلد والتفاهم الفعلي مع الصهيونية. وهي، بالنسبة للجناح العقاري من الكمبرادورية المسيطرة، مجرد جرافة تزيل أي عوائق ثقافية تعرقل التوسع العقاري والسياحي، ثم يكون عليها أن تنزوي عندما يبدأ العُمران المضادّ.
في جدة ـــ وهي مدينة بحرية تاريخية جميلة ـــ تبحث عن التاريخ، فلا تجدْه، وعن التراث فلا تعثر له على مظهر، وتسعى لفهم هوية المدينة، فتُصاب بالتشوّش؛ قصور فارهة وراء الحدائق الغنّاء، وعمارات مصمتة بلا نَفَس، ومعازل سكنية للغرباء تحاول تعويض جهامة الفضاء المديني بإنشاء فضائها الخاص من الساحات والملاعب والحدائق، إنما في إطار سور خانق كالسجن، ومولات في إثر مولات، وفنادق فخمة من الماركات العالمية في إثر مثيلاتها، ومقاه ومطاعم حديثة هي، في معظمها، فروع للشركات العالمية. حتى المساجد لا توجد لأكثرها هوية عربية إسلامية؛ بعضها هندي الملامح وبعضها صيني العمارة وبعضها ككنائس البروتستانت؛ البحر، حتى بحر جدة الساحر الطليق، لا ينقذك من الاختناق.
ايديولوجية الدمار الوهّابية المعادية للعُمران التراثي كانت، وما تزال، منية المتمني بالنسبة للكمبرادور العقاري في البلدان العربية؛ هنا، توجد قوى اجتماعية وهيئات مدنية، ترفع صوتها الرافض لهدم مبنى تراثي عمره مائة عام. وفي الغالب، تنجح الكمبرادورية العقارية في هدم المبنى المعني بعد فضيحة، لكن، بالطبع، فإنها لا تجرؤ على اقتراح تجريف مسجد أو كنيسة أو ضريح ديني. وهكذا، فهي تغبط نظيرتها السعودية، على الجرّافة الوهابية التي لا يعترضها بناءٌ تراثي ولا مسجدٌ ولا ضريح، حتى لو كان ضريح النبي محمد (ص) نفسه.
أظنه سر افتنان تيار المستقبل (ولا أعني اللبناني فقط، بل العربي بأسمائه العديدة) ومثقفيه الليبراليين، بالوهابية التي تسمح بـ «مستقبل» بلا ماض، بلا قيم ولا مقاومة اجتماعية أو ثقافية، مستقبل يجد مبتغاه في اقتصاد السوق المعولم الحر، كليا، في ارتكاب ما يعوزه من ارتكابات، على كل صعيد، لتحقيق أكثر ما يمكن من الربح؛ الإله الوحيد الجدير بالعبادة الرأسمالية.
في ما سُمي «الربيع العربي»، أطلقت الوهابية غزوتها الكبرى، في مسارين: القَطري، مستخدما النسخة القُطبية (نسبة إلى سيد قطب) من الحركة الإخوانية، والسعودي مستخدما السلفية الجهادية التي تمثل النسخة العربية والأممية من وهّابية منفلتة من عقالها، غزوة تهدف إلى تجريف الإسلام المصري المتحضّر والوعي الوطني الاجتماعي في أكبر دولة عربية، ولتجريف سوريا نفسها، مجتمعا وعُمرانا. ويمكننا أن نكتشف، منذ الآن، الدواعي الكمبرادورية وراء تلك الغزوة المشؤومة.
البلطجة السعودية تحول دون الاعتراض على تجريف الضريح النبوي؛ فقد غدا الإسلام وكالة حصرية للتحالف الوهابي السعودي ــــ الأميركي.

Sayyed Nasrallah: We Are with Any Proportional Law, Stop Betting on Syria, “Israel” Suffering Confidence Crisis
|The Iranian documentary produced in reaction to the blasphemous US movie will be broadcast through 50 satellite networks and hundreds of internet websites on November 8.
The documentary named ˈThe Prophetˈ is the first media response of the Islamic world to the defamatory American movie and will come out in Persian, English and Arabic.
Al Manar, Sahar TV channel, Al Mayadeen and Samen TV are among those channels and satellite networks to broadcast the Iranian documentary, IRNA said.
ˈThe Prophetˈ is a joint production of the Society of Dialogue between Islam and Christianity and the Association of Islamic TV and Radio Channels.
It was filmed in a number of countries including Australia, Iran, India, Armenia, Vatican City, Italy and Saudi Arabia.
Some Muslim countries had already announced their intention to make a film in response to sacrilegious US movie but failed to do so, making the Iranian documentary the sole media reaction to the American movie by the Islamic countries.

The ruling sect of Wahhabis demolishes historic buildings in Mecca and Medina.
Why there are many protests worldwide over cartoons and films, which are seen as an attack on the faith, but we hear not even a peep from you about the fact that the Saudi royal family is destroying the holiest places of Islam? Is this no attack on the faith?
The ruling sect of Wahhabis demolishes historic buildings in Mecca and Medina, and there is no protest. Such as the birth house of Mohammed, there is a library now. Added to this is that the Wahhabis are those who fund the Islamic extremists of the Salafists that are pushing the entire Islam in a bad light with their bloodthirsty terrorism.
Also at this point, nothing is done about it. How can somebody say on the one hand, that Islam is peaceful, but nobody is doing something to stop the criminal Saudis and their perverse interpretation of the holy Quran.
The regime in Saudi Arabia is the worst, most brutal and inhumane dictatorship in the world. The Islam of the Wahhabis, which is practiced there, has nothing to do with the Prophet’s message. They are so extreme; they destroy the whole history and tradition.
In Mecca, even the house of the first wives of Muhammad, Khadija or “the Mother of Islam”, was demolished, and they have built a public toilet on that place. Other historic buildings are also gone, so that King Abdullah can build more skyscrapers, shopping malls and a large mosque on it.
Next to the Kaaba, there is already a skyscraper with the largest clock in the world, the Abraj Al Bait Tower, part of a luxury apartment- and hotel complex, which is run by the European company Accor. Owner of the buildings is the Saudi Binladin Group, so the family of Osama Bin Laden.
The holiest place of Islam, where all should be equal, was converted into a kind of Las Vegas with gigantism in its neighbourhood, where the rich people live in luxury, although the whole Hajj should be actually marked by modesty and chastity.
In the middle, very tiny, there is the Kaaba, next to the massive luxury complex:
In the second holiest place, in Medina, soon three old mosques of the 7th century, so from the early days of Islam, are demolished. They are dedicated to Mohammed and two of his closest followers, Abu Bakr and Umar.
At the same location, there is also the Masjid Ghamama – the place where the Prophet gave his first prayers for the Eid festival. The largest mosque in the world shall be built there, for 1.2 million believers, with magnificent shopping malls and luxury hotels.
10 years ago, already a mosque has been simply blown up, although the mosque was attributed to the grandson of Muhammad. Members of the Saudi religious police cheered and celebrated on the heap of rubble. Already 95 percent of the 1,000 year-old buildings in the centre of both cities were destroyed in the past 20 years. Even in Bosnia, the most beautiful mosques of the Ottoman period are replaced by ugly Saudi mosques because the Wahhabis do hate the Ottoman architecture.
The Wahhabis are like the Puritans in Christianity, totally extreme in their interpretation of the Holy Scripture, with intolerance, breeding and punishment; they destroy everything that does not fit in their eyes. However, this is only true for the rabble, because the members of the Saudi royal family are living in the greatest pageantry, in golden palaces, they love the most opulent materialism, worship the God of Mammon and they are quite closely connected with the enemies of humanity. The best example is Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, or Bandar Bush as he is also called, a close friend of the satanic Bush family.
On the one hand they do so piously, but they also let the Americans into the land of the holy places, which have then built large military bases there. Of course, so that their power is maintained. The Saudi population is the poorest in the entire Middle East and foreigners are kept like slaves.
The Saudi royal family lives in a richness, which one cannot even imagine. The Saudi royal family has several palaces in Mecca and Medina, which especially stand out as symbols of an entire squandering. This is in stark contrast to the principles of humility that is taught in Islam and which has been lived by Muhammad as a role model.
Now, they even want to destroy the grave of Mohammed. It is covered with a famous green dome and also forms the centre of his Masjid an-Nabawi mosque in Media that was also built by him.
The Wahhabis and their religious police prevent the praying and also the visit of the places, which are descended from the life time of the Prophet. The Wahhabis and their religious police prevent the praying and also the visit of the places, which originated in the life time of the Prophet. It is said that these extremists want to stop the faithful of rendering homage to “idols”.
Thereby it is common to visit shrines and tombs – outside Saudi Arabia. They even want to destroy the prayer niche in the centre of the mosque, which forms the Riyadh al-Jannah (Paradise garden), a part of the mosque that has been declared as particularly sacred by Mohammed.
Why is there no protest against the destruction of the Islamic tradition and history by the Wahhabis? Although they just are a very small minority within the 1.2 billion Muslims. Is it because the Saudi royal family scatters their pots of petrodollars all over the Muslim communities in order to buy the silence? Or do they fear their extremists? The pilgrims, with whom I have spoken, are totally disgusted what they have seen in Mecca and Medina – the total commerce and gigantism, a desecration of the Hajj.
However, when Israeli archaeologists are digging at the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, then many Muslims are no more able to recover due to the sheer anger about this. They protest and proclaim loudly, that would be a desecration of the third holiest site of Islam.
But if the first and second holy places are steamrolled by the Saudis, one is not able to hear a loud outcry. What’s worse, a cartoon of Muhammad or to transform the places of his actions into ruins and make them disappear?
This complete silence is also taking place even if the Salafists massacre their fellow Muslims in Syria. The terrorists that are smuggled to Syria, funded by the Wahhabis and equipped with weapons, are raging in bloodlust, shouting “Allahu akbar” then shooting defenceless civilians with machine guns. Everywhere they do appear, the most terrible war crimes happen. What does that have to do with Islam and the Quran? These are not Muslims, but a gang of godless mass murderers.
The whole Islamic terrorism is sponsored by the Saudis and provided to the Americans for their “war with terrorism”. The Al Qaeda was created by both in order to destabilize countries and to perform “regime changes”. 15 of the 19 hijackers of 11 September were Saudi nationals; they have received their visas by the CIA.
Instead of attacking Saudi Arabia as the “origin” of terror, Afghanistan and Iraq was invaded, who had nothing to do with it. Bandar Bush as a Saudi ambassador in Washington was heavily involved in this operation under false flag.
Money of the Riggs Bank, from an account of his wife, ended up at two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. Purely by chance, the uncle of George W. Bush, Jonathan Bush, was the President of Riggs Bank. In the early 1980s, Jonathan Bush has helped his nephew George W. Bush to find investors for his first oil company Arbusto, what was later called the Bush Exploration; a company that had a brother of Osama bin Laden as investor.
Prince Bandar, two days after 9/11 in the White House:
The protests against the insulting of the Prophet Muhammad by the West are only then credible for me, if one is also protesting against the crimes and desecration of sacred sites by the Saudi royal family at the same volume. Even the slaughter of Muslims by Muslims in Syria must have an end and has to trigger a massive contradiction.
Put the Wahhabis and their spawns of the devil finally into the offside. If that does not happen, then the excitement about Western insults is just pure hypocrisy.
When one confronts Imams with this, then they say that they cannot talk about it and are not able to confront the Saudi Embassy with what the Saudi government shamefully does. For me, that’s impossible and cowardly. Then the only option for the faithful is to protest by themselves at the embassy.
The historical religious places are no property of the dictator of Saudi Arabia. They belong to all Muslims of the world. They have far too long just watched in silence, how the criminal Saudi regime systematically destroys the history of Islam.
Actually, the title of this article should be following:
“The Wahhabis destroy the Islam without any resistance”

CIA Agents Confirm Obama Told Them Not To Aid Ambassador Chris Stevens – The White House Disinformation Campaign on Libya
BenghaziGate: Two 9/11’s Bring Questions : Has Uncle Sam Joined The Jihad? [Yes He Has]
UPDATE 4.: TheBlazeTV – The Glenn Beck Program – Libya–The Real Story
UPDATE 3.: SEAL’s father Charles Woods on Hannity: WH officials “murdered” my son…
The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack “are murderers of my son.”
Charles Woods was reacting to accounts by Fox News sources that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials. His son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in the Sept. 11 assault.
“They refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.”
Woods said he forgives whoever denied the apparent request, but he urged them to “stand up.”
Sources also said Tyrone Woods and others, who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate, ignored orders by their superiors to stand down and not go to the consulate to help. Woods went to the consulate, and hours later he was killed back at the annex.
Charles Woods said his son’s action “does not surprise me.”
“I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same level of moral courage and heroism that my son displayed,” he said.
UPDATE 2.: BREAKING NEWS!!! Obama a Hitman or Terrorist Arms Dealer??? Why He Hid the Truth of Benghazi…
The Turkish leader left the meeting he was having with our Ambassador 1 hour before the attack without being touched, while the building was being watched by the attackers, according to the reports coming from onsite officials at the time, to the white house and to the internet.
The whitehouse WATCHED THE ATTACK on Benghazi go down, via drone recon. They were told as it went down it was a terrorist attack and while it happened THE WHITEHOUSE WATCHED OUR PEOPLE DIE FROM THE SITUATION ROOM!!!
And then lied about it!!!
Hillary Clinton said the buck stopped with her, taking the fall after the lies were being outted and blame had to be placed. I have always said,it is a deadly dangerous business to be one of Hillary Clinton’s ‘friends!!!’ Any ‘friend’ of hers involved with the Whitewater Scandal could tell you that, if any of them were alive today! Every last one of them, even the ones who went to prison, died mysteriously! Remember Vincent Foster… Foster’s death became part of a broad investigation of President and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s financial dealings in Arkansas when Whitewater records were discovered to have been in his office six months after his death. He was found sitting up – dead – in Virginia State Park. Some theorized he died elsewhere, was wrapped in a carpet and brought to the park. Strangely, his death was ruled a suicide.
I said it on the day this took place, and I will say it again. This is a false flag. It had nothing to do with a 13 minute Youtube video. But for the public to know who the terrorist was who did it, would point the finger at the person who sold the terrorist the weapons to do it with!!! And that would be inconvenient just now. As he is trying to win a presidential election!
UPDATE 1.: CIA agents confirm Obama told them not to Aid Ambassador Chris Stevens
John Christopher Stevens was an American diplomat and lawyer who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya from June 2012 to September 11, 2012.
After American diplomatic facilities in Libya came under sustained assault by militia forces, the Obama administration – including the president and Secretary of State themselves – spent days insisting that the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to an obscure YouTube video that insulted the Muslim prophet Muhammed.
As more information trickled out, the administration was eventually forced to admit that the attacks that claimed the lives of Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans were acts of terrorism.
But the “cover up” hasn’t stopped there. Information continues to emerge suggesting poor preparation for the anniverary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, and potential disregard for the safety of personnel there. Stevens requested a prolonged stay for a 16-member security detail there, for instance, but that request was denied.
The Obama administration owes the American people a full, honest explanation for its actions in Libya. Its rhetoric does not match reality, as Heritage’s new video indisputably shows.
The latest incriminating information on the U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya indicates that the State Department turned down a request for additional security from concerned U.S. embassy staff.
New evidence shows there were security threats in Libya in the months prior to the deadly September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Despite these threats, the State Department left its personnel there to fend for themselves.
And when the terrorist attack did take place, the Obama Administration peddled the ridiculous story that an offensive, amateurish, anti-Islam YouTube video was to blame in order to avoid characterizing the murders of four Americans as terrorism.
On October 2, a letter was sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R–CA) and Jason Chaffetz (R–UT), Chairman of the National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations Subcommittee. The letter detailed 13 known security threats against U.S. facilities in Libya in the six months prior to September 11.
On October 10, the committee will hold a hearing on events in Libya and seek answers from the State Department. Also on October 10, The Heritage Foundation will host a public panel discussion on the events in Libya titled, “Intelligence and Security Failure: Attacks in Benghazi and Across the Middle East Reveal Ongoing Threat of Terrorism.”
To help our readers follow the path to tragedy on September 11 and its aftermath, below is a chronology of key events:

So, it’s official. The Holocaust is a religion. Incidently, a few years ago, Israeli philosophy professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz had made a similar claim.
Some of the Zionist Christian lies the Israel-Firster Obama wanted his audience to believe that it’s Muslims and not the Jews who curse Jesus and his mother Saint Mary – or that it’s an Islamic tradition to spit on the Cross and not a Jewish ritual in Israel – or that in 2009, it were Israeli Muslims who forced the National Federation of Israeli Journalist Union to remove all Virgin Mary’s paintings as they reminded them of a female Palestinian martyred – or it were Muslims who painted graffiti in Hebrew on a church wall in Jerusalem calling for “Death to Christians”!!
The problem with the Jewish ‘Six Million Died’ narrative is that many of its “witness story” have been exposed a fraud. Last month, the British Jewish Chronicle had reported that the story of Australian Holocaust survivor, Alex Kurzem, as told in a bestselling book and an award-winning documentary – both titled ‘The Mascot’ – was nothing but a big lie.
On June 5, 2008, French professor Robert Faurisson 83, wrote that Holocaust is Israel’s number one political weapon. Raised in the religion of Holocaust, the people of North America and Europe believe in this great lie and see Iranian president Ahmadinejad as a heretic for allowing the International Holocaust Conference to be held in Tehran (December 11th – 12th, 2006); thus they dare not defend any policy of rappproachement with Iran or call for a lifting of boycott, although there lies the only chance of seeing their enegy cost decreased. Read the article in full, here.
“The Holocaust has proven to be an indispensable ideological weapon. Through its deployment, one of the world’s most formidable military powers, with a horrendous human rights record, has cast itself as a “victim” state, and the most successful ethnic group in the US has likewise aquired victim status,” Dr. Norman Finkelstein, American Jewish academic and author.

Introduction by Kourosh Ziabari
On September 20, 2012, the Veterans Today columnist Bob Johnson wrote an article entitled “Barack Obama Lied About Religions.” In the article which was written in response to the statements of President Obama who had said that “[t]here is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women,” while addressing the killing of U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other diplomatic staff in the aftermaths of the release of the anti-Islam movie “Innocence of Muslims” which sparked international anger among the Muslims and prompted month-long demonstrations across the world, some accusations and attacks were directed to Islam which I thought should not be left unanswered.
Mr. Johnson accused President Obama of spreading falsehood about religions and claimed that Islam promotes and endorses violence and aggression, so Barack Obama lied by claiming that there’s no religion that condones killing and bloodshed. Of course such claims attest to unawareness about the nature and essence of an ancient and venerated religion as Islam and bespeak of unfamiliarity with the realities of Islam which the Western mainstream media has systematically withhold from the public.
After reading Mr. Johnson’s article, I decided to prepare a full-fledged and substantive response to it and publish on the Veterans Today, so I contacted Mr. Sayyed Mortaza Mirseradji, an author and religious expert based in Iran to write an essay and respond to the accusations directed against Islam in this article.
Mr. Mirseradji provided a well-developed essay which I think is a must-read guide for every non-Muslim who has murky and unclear perceptions of Islam and wants to discover whether this religion endorses violence or not. I recommend reading this article to all of those who believe that Prophet Muhammad was a corrupt man, Islam is a repressive and aggressive religion and that fundamentalism seen across the world, especially following the false-flag attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001 is a result of Islamic thought. Perhaps this article, which will be published in three parts, can be a manual for you to know about Islam what the mainstream media have been denying you for so long. – Kourosh Ziabari
By Sayyed Mortaza Mirseradji
Many critical questions which are raised about Islam with the intention of calling into question and supposedly undermining the tenets and principles of Islam stem from the ignorance of people or their apparent animosity with this divine religion. Some others are truly unaware and uninformed about Islam and ask questions to learn more, but don’t know how to achieve this end. And there is a group of people who intentionally and willfully want to deliver a blow to the religion and so, use the unawareness of ordinary people, selectively choose some parts of the realities and aggrandize that part and present it as a challenge for and shortcoming in the religion, while it’s evident that their objective is to sow the seeds of sedition.
Hereby, we present some basic facts and then try to respond to the witty and astute statements of Mr. Bob Johnson regarding the divine religions in general, and Islam in particular.
The philosophy of the emergence of divine religions has been the establishment of peace and creation of tranquility for the human being.
Colloquially, religion is referred to a set of divine commandments pertaining to material and spiritual affairs, transmitted to the human being by the prophets of God. The philosophy of the emergence of divine religions in the human societies has been creating peaceful and healthy relationships among all the human beings based on what the Almighty God wants the man to be.
Religion marks the difference between the man and the animal. It can be inferred from the verses of the Holy Quran that prior to Creation and the descending of Adam, a group of savage and bloodthirsty people lived on the Earth who were gradually brought to extinction and disappeared.
Upon the creation of Adam, whom the Muslims consider a holy prophet, the angels were surprised at God’s special attention to him, because they considered him to be similar to those savage and brutal people in terms of appearance and physical attributes. The Almighty God obviated their ambiguity through entrusting a divine knowledge and religion to Adam; so, religion is the basis of difference of mankind with all the other living things and its prerequisite is wisdom and mind and this is something which the primary mans lacked. As a result, all the religions and holy books which were revealed to the holy prophets, included a complete plan for the material and spiritual affairs of all the human beings and were sent upon the man from the extraterrestrial world so that he may not spend his life like the animals and unintelligent man in barbarity and blood-spilling, but to live a life full of rationality and peace.
In the history of divine religions, some major prophets were simply inspired for a certain period of time or place and this was the Almighty God’s providence and expediency. Among all of the prophets, it was Prophet Muhammad who offered to the human being the last and most complete religion with the direct permission of the Almighty God. Therefore, what is lawful in his religion will remain lawful until the doomsday and what is unlawful in his religion will remain unlawful until the day of resurrection.
Lexically, it is taken of the root of “Salam” in Arabic which means to be submissive to the rule of God. Muslim means somebody who is submissive and obedient to the rule of God, His prophet and the other religious leaders. Since Islam is the last divine religion, there are different rules and laws in it. These rules are manifested in the Holy Quran, the tradition of Prophet Muhammad and the sayings and behavior of the holy saints and leaders. The teachings and commandments of Islam encompass a variety of issues. It might be interesting for you to know that in Islam, different subjects, from the medical benefits of garlic and onion to the existence of aliens, rules pertaining to sexual issues, the rights of animals, the principles of communication and socialization, the ways of governing a society and administration of justice, have been discussed.
The Holy Quran
Every instrument or tool which the man invents has a special catalogue or manual. The sayings and traditions of Prophet Muhammad in general, and the Holy Quran in particular, are examples of methods and correct models for human life; whether material or spiritual. These sources are the manuals of a prosperous and happy life.
Let’s imagine that even a small company has its certain rules and regulations, or a washing machine or cell phones which have their own manuals and guidelines. The essence and nature of human being, from the eyes of divine religions, are so precious and dignified that they cannot be considered insignificant and infinitesimal and left without planning and guidance. So it’s not acceptable that the human being be left without a premeditated programming and direction. Therefore, in the thought of all the divine religions, especially Islam which is the most complete and the last divine religion, all issues concerning the life of man has been planned and programmed by the Almighty God and these plans are transmitted to the man through prophets.
All the prophets are symbols of benevolence and kindness
In the Holy Quran, Prophet Muhammad has been referred to as “last divine prophet” and a “prophet of kindness and benevolence for the people of the world.” In his lifestyle and tradition, there’s ample evidence of his kindness and kindheartedness. He was even affectionate and friendly to his own enemies and history attests to this claim.
A large group of people in the city of Mecca insulted Prophet Muhammad, threw stones at him and poured down on him the dirty and stinky rumen and tripe of camel and threatened him to death; however, Prophet Muhammad, the apostle of kindness and compassion, never affronted or threatened them and even never took revenge on them when he came to power and this shows his utmost magnanimity and nobility. Abu Sufyan who was one of the pagans of Mecca and an adamant enemy of Prophet Muhammad had always hated the prophet and eve went into war with him. As soon as he left the misery of heresy and embraced the honor of belief in God and monotheism, the Holy Prophet forgave him and ignored his wrongdoing. Abu Sufyan’s wife who was a pagan like him and attempted to kill prophet’s uncle was forgiven by Prophet Muhammad as soon as he turned to Islam and abandoned the useless idols. Even Wahshi who killed prophet’s uncle, sought refuge in prophet and embraced Islam and as a result, Prophet Muhammad excused him.
In the statements and tradition of Prophet Muhammad, paying attention to the destitute, children, women, disable people and hostages were of high importance. During his lifetime, he never oppressed anyone, and was the true incarnation of compassion and mercy. His benevolence even reached to the environment and animals, let alone the human beings that had a prominent position in his transcendent thought.
All the divine religions, especially Islam, are the representation of peace and kindness
In actuality, all the divine religions promote peace and compassion and this claim is validated by the teachings of Islam which is the last divine religion. Pay attention to the following items:
1- The word “Salam” which is one of the Almighty God’s names means “peace and tranquility” and it’s strongly recommended to Muslims to say “Salam” to each other as a sign of greeting. Interestingly, if one meets you and says “Salam” (hello), you will be committing a sin if you don’t say “Salam” in his response. This is one of the subtleties of Islam and a delicacy in the behavior of Muslims who present to each other peace and tranquility as a precious gift, and if someone says Salam to you, it means that you’ll be protected and saved from harm by him.
2- The very name Islam and the word Muslim which come from a common origin are congenial to the word “Salam” which means peace and tranquility. Islam and Muslim are laid in a context of peace and tranquility.
3- There are 114 Surahs (chapters) in Quran of which 113 Surahs begin with the phrase “In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate” and in one Surah, the phrase has been repeated twice, and thus the number of Surahs starting with this phrase amount to 114. Which religion has talked about the kindness of the Almighty God in such a delicate way and repeats a phrase which frequently speaks of benevolence and kindness? Unquestionably, the followers of this faith are kind and affectionate to everybody and it’s demonstrated to the people around the world that Muslims are the best minorities everywhere in the world.
4- It’s one of the teachings of Islam that every endeavor which is not started with the phrase “In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate,” will be futile, meaning that along with remembering the name of God, kindness and compassion should always accompany important efforts and endeavors.
5- There are numerous verses in the Holy Quran which call on the people and invite them to brotherhood, equality, taking note of each other’s goodness, doing good deeds, being considerately kind and benevolent to parents, righteous speech, righteous thought, righteous performance, clemency and forgiveness, being careful about each other’s situation in times of difficulty, etc. and it will demand tens of pages to mention all of these verses.
6- Prophet Muhammad never waged any war to bring Islam to other countries because it’s mentioned in the Holy Quran that “there’s no compulsion in religion,” meaning that nobody embraced Islam with force. This has been demonstrated in the history of Islam, in cases such as Yemen when Prophet Muhammad was still alive. The growth of Islam in such regions as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, China and especially the African countries has taken place quite peacefully and without any war. It might be interesting to note that Islam was brought to many countries by the merchants, because all of the intelligent and oppressed people of the world relate to Islam very quickly. Verily, Islam is the best worldview. Portraying a savage and aggressive picture of Prophet Muhammad is a real atrocity and a great injustice about the prophet of kindness and compassion, and we will be talking about this issue in the following parts of the article.
7- In Islam, it’s forbidden to disrespect the women and no culture is as elevated and exalted as Islam to explicate the importance of women in creation and their lofty position in such an elaborate manner. We will be talking about this issue in the third part of the article.
8- According to Islamic teachings, it’s forbidden to torture or molest other people. Every unfair and inequitable action and whatever rejected by intellect is denied in Islam. Enmity is unacceptable in Islam, and if two people altercate and continue being at odds with each other for more than 3 days, they will be considered as non-Muslims. Divorce is reprimanded in Islam, because love and companionship are two important priorities. Supporting the children, the old people and encouraging others to studentship and scholarship, almsgiving and earning a living through legal and permissible means and avoiding deception and fraud and thousands of other humanitarian gestures are strongly recommended in Islam.
9- In each division of their prayers, the Muslims repeat the words “compassionate” and “merciful” 6 times and during the whole day prayers, they repeat these words 60 times. The Muslims are immersed in kindness and benevolence and this is even manifested in the text of their prayers.
