Qarmatians took Ka'aba

Recommended Posts

If we read the Qur'an about Mesjid-ul-Harem, "safe city", "mother of towns" and other things which we, 1400 after, can associate with city of Mecca in S. Arabia today, then we have to ask one simple question:

How was it possible that a few thousands of the people kill the people who were doing hajj some 300 yrs after Muhammed Mustafa sawa, take Black Stone of Ka'aba with them for more then a 20 years? 

They didn't return it to Mecca, they left it in Iraq and it was recorded that they left the message: "By command we took it, and by command we have brought it back." Who's command? Why they did it? No jihad against them? Nobody stopped trading with them?

Btw, it was recorded that Black Stone was broken in 7 pieces. Is this true, because I see that Black Stone now as a solid one.

These people, as you probably know, were known as Qarmatians. 

I have read some of records about them in sunni and non-Muslim sources, and I wonder if there are some of shi'a sources, especially Isma'ili sources.

Associated with this topic, I'll ask again: did any of imams a.s. ever done hajj in Mecca?

Do you think that most of informations you got came to you by magic or only what killers of imams a.s. allowed to be recorded?

I believe it's distorted by Umayyad and Abbasid among with Seljuk and ottomansBlack stone is like pagan worship before islam came.

Alevi only be respect but do not worship it

It’s not the trivet but the fire gives the heat, 
The miracle is not in the crown but in the khirkah 
Whatever you’re searching for, search in yourself, 
It’s neither in Jerusalem, Mecca nor in the Hadj.

My interest is not about Qarmatians, it's about (other) Muslims. There was no war against Qarmatians for what they done and, as I said, nobody stopped trading with them. It was not as in 1979 for a few hours, this was for more then 20 years.

We accepted many things without any evidence, just from narrations, which obviously came from "dark ages", when all informations were filtrated by khalifas.

This is why I still wonder if any of imams a.s. done hajj in Mecca! I know this sounds as a silly question, but if being in Mecca during the hajj was not important to h. El-Huseyn a.s. and his nearest, why should it be important for us? Did anybody of his progeny ever went in Mecca for hajj? Did they live in Mecca? If h. Muhammed Mustafa sawa and h. Fatima s.a. and h. 'Ali a.s. and h. El-Hassen a.s. and h. El-Huseyn a.s. were born in Mecca, why nobody of imams a.s. after lived there? Did they ever visit it? Is Mecca just pre- or post-Saudi fairy tail?

    • Thank you, Dear. I am praying for you to find a friend. If you go to the nearest Shia Center where you live I'm sure you can find someone to talk to. Have you been friendly to a classmate?
    • (2:94) Say to them, "If the abode of the Hereafter with Allah is exclusively reserved for you and not for the rest of mankind, then you should long for death, if you arc sincere in your claim."   If you are sincere then there's no problem in killing you Shia. Embrace the hereafter.
    • Thank you for understanding @Hameedeh I’m planning on doing that. I’d never imagine myself reporting my dad anyway. Helplines have also suggested that but I won’t ever do that
    • Hello brothers and sisters. I feel like I am in dire need of help. My hatred and the feeling of jealously towards my relatives and slowly now, towards others are increasing. I have lived a lonely difficult life, where I wasn't allowed to communicate with others much. Wasn't allowed to go out much. Basically say at home alone most of the time. I watch my cousins get everything they want. I'm not jealous over this but, the fact they travel a lot. Something I've never done. I wish to go to hajj and I wish to go to Iraq especially, so I can meet my grandfather. My grandmother passed away, so I never had a chance to meet her. I had a chance to go to Iraq this year, excited to meet my grandfather. I was meant to go with my relatives, but they had secretly planned everything, excluding me out. Which made me sad, as I know they are not fans of Iraq, where as I love the beauty and the history of Iraq. Even though I've never been, I know in my heart that its a unique place. My one chance is gone, I'm afraid I've lost my chance to meet my grandfather as I heard he is sick. I can't go unless for another five years. Which breaks my heart, and now I have tried to push away these negative feelings I've had for them. But now its just, worse. I can't help but think bad thoughts. I just don't want my heart to turn dark, as I've retreated myself from communication towards others and stopped caring for everyone as I'm continuously being betrayed occasionally. I don't really have anyone a around me to teach me or help me Islamically. I'm trying hard to be patient and humble and forgiving and kind. I'm losing that side of me. But I'm so alone. I'm reading the Quran and hadith's, but I'm not sure as to what I should be reading. There are other things before that triggered all of this, but I'll end up writing a book on here. I would appreciate anything. Please and thank you.
