8th Shawwal - Destruction of Baqi cemetery opposite Prophets mosque in Medina

On 21st April 1925, (8th Shawwal 1345 A.H.), the Islamic world witnessed a tragedy of unprecedented dimension: one of the Islam's Holiest Places, Jannatul-Baqi was demolished.

History of the Cemetery of Jannat Al-Baqi At Medina

This cemetery contains the Graves of the Prophets Grandson Imam Hassan ibn. Ali (as), his son Imam Ali ibn Al-Hussein  Zein al abidin (as), & His son Imam Muhammad Al-Baqir ibn ALI (as) & Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq -(Peace be upon them), aunt Fatima bint al-Asad, & many other prominent personalities.

On 8th Shawwal, Wednesday, in the year 1345 AH (April 21, 1925), mausoleums in Jannatul al-Baqi (Medina) were demolished. In the same year (1925), the tombs of holy personages at Jannat al-Mualla (Makkah) where the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his household)'s mother, wife, grandfather and other ancestors are buried also were demolished.

Destruction of sacred sites in Hijaz continues even today. According to some scholars what is happening in Hijaz is actually a conspiracy plotted by the Zionists against Islam. The idea is to eradicate the Islamic legacy and heritage and to systematically remove all its vestiges so that in the days to come, Muslims will have no affiliation with their religious history.
