Hujr bin Adi al-Kindi: The Great Martyr

Wahhabism is a Blasphemy Under the Cover of Islam and Atheism with the Face of Faith

Ayatollah Vahid Khorasani mentioned the excommunicator (Takfiri) Wahhabists’ crime and exhumation of Hojr ibn Adi and said: “Blasphemy and atheism destroyed the holy grave of this grand companion of holy prophet hand in hand”.

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - On his jurisprudence courses held in the Grand mosque of Qom, Grand Ayatollah Vahid Khorasani mentioned the excommunicator Wahhabists’ crime and exhumation of Hojr ibn Adi and said: “Blasphemy and atheism destroyed the holy grave of this grand companion of holy prophet in Damascus hand in hand”.

He added: “Ibn al-Athir quotes that once Ayesha asked Muawiyah with bitterness about the reason behind killing of Hojr ibn Adi. “O Mother of believers! I killed him for the interest of Islam” said Muawiyah. “You killed someone” said Ayesha “about whom the prophet once said: “Hojr and his followers will be killed by [a group of people] who are Muslim and worshipers of God and [in result] all from heaven will get angry””

The grand Ayatollah indicated that Wahhabism is a blasphemy under the cover of Islam and atheism with the face of faith and wondered: “Is the Saudi Wahhabism capable of taking responsibility of such action?”

“Why such grave should be demolished unlike the Fatwa of Abu-Hanifa, Malek, Shafei and Ibn-Hanbal” he said.

The grand Ayatollah then stressed out that blasphemy and atheism are hand in hand to pressure Shiite and said: “The one whose grave got desecrated was someone whose Du’a would never remain unanswered according to Ibn al-Athir”.

Ayatollah Vahid Khorasani also mentioned the holiness of the Rajab month and the first Friday night of it which is the night of wishes and insisted: “Pray for the Syrian and Bahraini Muslims in the Night of wishes so God rid them out of atheists and infidels. This is the duty of all of us”.

Abd al-Bir al Maliki said: "Hujr was among the excellent Companions, and his age was less than their old ones." In his book Asad al-Ghaba fi Tamyiz al-Sahaba', Ibn al-Athir has mentioned him with words similar to these ones. In his book Al-Mustadrak', al-Hakim has described him as: "the monk of the Companions of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and his family."

Hujr worshipped (Allah) to the extent that when he made ritual impurity, he performed the ritual ablution; when he performed the ritual ablution, he prayed. He performed one thousand rak`as a day.

Photos of the Free Syrian Army agents destroyed the grave of 'Hujr ibn Adi'

A few days ago foreign-backed militants belonging to the Free Syria Army desecrated the tomb of Hujr ibn Adi in the town of Adra, located west of the capital Damascus. Militants raided the mausoleum and transferred his remains to an unknown location.

Ibn Adi - a close companion of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and a loyal supporter of the first Shia Imam Ali (PBUH) - led the army of Muslims to victory in several crucial battles. He was martyred along with his son and several companions in 660 CE at the hands of the Umayyad ruler Muawiya ibn Abu Sufyan due to their firm loyalty to Imam Ali (PBUH).

The shrine of Hujr Ibn Adi Al-Kindi was reportedly ransacked and desecrated by members or associates of the Syria Free Army, which was formed in 2011.

On May 2nd, 2013 a group of Wahhabi Takfiri Jihadists destroyed one more grave in Syria for a prophet companion Hijir Bin Adi al-Kindi in Adra, Damascus Countryside. They took out his dead body, he died some 1,400 years ago and buried it in an unmarked place, as they claim through some Facebook page of one of their groups names.

"Alghuta al Sharghiyah" website, depend on Free Syrian Army claimed that the below picture belongs to Hujr bin Adi, companion of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and a loyal supporter of the first Shia Imam Ali (PBUH).

The attack on the shrine was condemned by by Hezbollah: “What we expected and feared, and what Hezbollah Secretary General, his Eminence Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, warned of two days ago, regarding the assault on sanctums, and the violation of religious sanctities, has happened,” a statement published by al-Manar read.

“The shrine of the great companion, Hujr Ibn Adi, is one of the most important shrines for all Muslims, and violating and digging his grave in this way reveals a terrorist and criminal mentality that does not respect neither Muslim nor Christian sanctities,” Hezbollah added.

In a statement, The European Council of Jamaats said that the destruction of the shrine was “not solely a matter of grave concern for the Shi’a [but] concerns Muslims worldwide.”

A blog also published several photographs of fighters standing in front of the destruction which they had apparently caused. One of the photos shows an empty hole in the ground, where the body of Hujr Ibn Adi Al-Kindi was exhumed.
