On 8th of the Islamic month of Shawwal in 1344 AH, Wahhabi brigands from Najd desecrated the sacred Jannat al-Baqie Cemetery of Medina, destroying the tombs of venerable Islamic figures including the majestic holy shrine that housed the tombs of four of the 12 Infallible Successors of Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) – Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba (AS), Imam Zain al-Abedin (AS), Imam Mohammad al-Baqer (AS), and Imam Ja’far as-Sadeq (AS).
The Chief Wahhabi Judge, Sheikh Abdullah bin Balhid, issued the blasphemous decree for destruction of the sacred and historical shrines of Medina. They wanted to destroy the Holy Prophet’s shrine as well, but were prevented by the people.
