Names of Imams on Masjid-i-Nabvi

23 posts in this topic

Assalam Alaikum

Although we hear a lot of things about Wahabi prejudices against our beloved Imams, but it was surprising to see names of our all Imams written on the walls of extended part of Majid-i-Nabvi. This part of Masjid-I-Nabvi was constructed probably in early eighties. That means the Wahabis are not that against our imams as it is described and hence they are Muslim contrary to some claims.

Salam o Alekum,

I have heard about this also. Where exactly are they written?

They could have been written in the pre alay Saud era. Many things were built by the Turkish.

I believe they're also written on the wall of Omayyad Mosque in Syria. They consider them as holy figures, much like Mu3awiya and Yazeed :donno:

It's funny to see both these names and the names of the Imams on the same wall.

They are wriiten in the part of Masjid-i-Nabvi built by present rulers, not in the part built by Turkish.

I have seen Omayyad Mosque in syria as well. It doesn't have Imams names although the place where head of Imam Hussain was placed is well preserved.

I'm pretty sure they had it bro. It wasnt on any of the main domes but it was on a wall extending to one of them. This was back in 1991. Maybe their wahhabism hit in and they removed it?

May be u are right. I didn't see when I visited it in 2000. I might have missed that place. Also, Syria is ruled by Alvis, who respect Ahlul Bait more than Shias. They are against Wahabis and also they do not consider Muavia and his son worthy of any respect. In fact grave of yazid is littered with garbage thrown by people. Muavia's grave is also described to be in bad shape.

Salam o Alekum,

I am asking the location as I wish to see it, InshaAllah. Here is the map of the Masjid al-Nabawi, the main portion where the Prophet (SAWW) is burried and the part of Masjid next to it. So where are they written,

-In this area,

-Left

-Right

-down (behind)

Thanks

Salaam Alaykum,

I went to Medina in 1997 and saw it then - it was in the part where the mosque opens up into two open squares (which are then covered when it becomes hot by umbrella like drapes). The names of all 12 Imams are there along with other names, each in gold writing on a circular green background at the very top of the wall going around each square.

However I have pictures of the Mosque of the Prophet from about 100 years ago and the names of the Imams are clearly visible then too, so it is not an addition by the part of the Saudi government, but rather predates them and they have simply left them there.

Plus - can I ask what "nabvi" is?

Wa Salaam

Could you scan those pictures for all of us to see? Thanks. :)

Nabi = Prophet (SAWW)

Nabvi or Nabawi = Prophet's or belonging to the Prophet (SAWW)

Salaam Alaykum,

I know what Nabi is, I just wondered why there was a "v" added, as there is no "nabvi" in Arabic - sorry my confusion.

Unfortunately I don't have the scanner, but will hunt out the book and give you the title if you wish to have a look in a shop etc., they have some very beautiful pictures of Makkah and Medina from 100 years ago - very inspiring.

Wa Salaam

Thanks brother for the map, but it not complete unfortunately. The place where names are written is outside of Turkish part of the Mosque. This position has been rightly pointed out by Br. Shiaboy83. The Mosque open up at two places with umbrella and names of Imams are there along with that of many companions. These names are not in order though.

Well, I understand the correct spelling is Nabavi or Nabawi. I don’t think there is any difference between Nabavi and Nabawi, is there?

It is our duty to try as much as possible to properly pronounce words pertaining to religion as well as you can. There is no such letter as "vau" in arabic. There is only only "wau". I also heard people saying "valla" many times many years ago. I couldn't figure out what it was until I was told that what he was trying to say is "By Allah" or "WAllah".

Some people cannot do so, as in the case of the famous Sahabi, Bilal. He would pronounce "sh" when it should be "s". But it was more of his inate pronunciation disability. For those who can pronouce, it would be better to pronouce it the way it was suppose to be, or as close as you can get to it. The main thing is to try your best.

Is there a difference between shiratul mustaqim and siratul mustaqim? Yes there is. For one thing, I have no idea what the word "shiratul" means. The problem when knowingly pronouncing words inccorectly is that it loses its meaning.

I saw a documentary film, which showed King Fahad inaugurating the construction of the mosque. It explained construction process and steps involved in great detail. Whether present rulers built the mosque are not this is another matter. Important thing is that the names of Imams are still written on the wall. If the present regime was against these sacred personalities they could have removed their names.

That means the Wahabis are not that against our imams as it is described and hence they are Muslim contrary to some claims.

:mad: It was King ibn Saud (:shaytan: lovechild) who ordered the demolition of the baqii, this shows plenty of love towards iblis if anything.

Well, I never said Wahabi love our Imams. What I said was that they seem to have respect for our Imams and hence they can be considered Muslim like other Sunnis.

The second Caliph is described to be responsible for the martyrdom of Hadrat Mohsin, the younger brother of Imam Hassan and Hussain. If Sunnis, who have great respect for the second caliph, can be considered Muslim why can’t Wahabis be?

Plenty of statements emanating from Iran describe Saudi Arabia, ruled by Wahabis” and Iran as great powers of Islam. If Wahabis are not Muslim, how can a country ruled by them be an Islamic power?

In Harem we perform “salat” following Wahabi Imam. Can we pray after a non-Muslim?

What makes Wahabies (Salafies) out of the circle of Islam?

Are there any Fatwas by Mujtahideen that they are out of Islam?

===============================================

Please also note that many Salafi people in Saudia are extremists (especially the new generation) and consider shias as Kafirs.

But the ruling of Saudi Government is this that Shias are Muslims and allowed to perform Hajj (although deny to give then to propogate their beliefs).

They also permitted them for Dua-e-Kumail in Janatul Baqi.

=========================================

All these steps from Saudi Government seems to be good. But beaware, the propaganda against Shias is verrrrrry strong in Saudia and the next generation consider Shias to be Kafir.

The Imam of Masjid-e-Nabawi (his name is Hudhaifi) is worst enemy of shias. These ulama (who are also partly against Saudi Government) propogating against Shias. And if they succeeds in coming to power, I am afraid they will try to ban shias from performing Hajj.

May Allah hasten the Zahoor of Our Imame-e-Zamana (as). Amin

Was Salam.

Salam o Alekum,

In that case Iran should attack Saudi Arabia to make way for Hajj. This is just an idea, what do you think?

AsalamuAlaikoum brothers and sisters. Ramadan Mubarik 

 

I've been following your thread of names of our beloved Imams and where they appear in Medina. Do any of you have a photograph of where the names appear that you might be willing to share here in the forum. My husbands family have been Sunni for generations after leaving Yemen and migrating to morocco 200 years ago, so learning their true heritage is quite an adventure, which began with my father in law, may he rest in peace, inchAllah, who, many years ago upon entering Medina on Hajj noticed the family name of Bakarim. He had no idea at the time that there was a connection to Imam Baqr. As I am trying to complete a family history for the rest of the family, I would like to try to obtain the image. Thank you. khuda hafiz.
