An extract from the book ‘Muslim History’ 570-1950 CE by Dr. A.Zahoor and Dr. Z Haq . from their translation in English.
This is the message from Muhammad Ibne Abdullah as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity near and far,we are with them . ” No compulsion is to be on them, neither are their Judges to be removed from their jobs, nor their monks from their monasteries” ” No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the muslim houses.” Should anyone to take any of these, he would spoil God’s covenant and disobey his Prophet(s). Verily they are all my allies and have my secure charter against all that they hate”
”No one is to force them to travel or to oblidge them to fight. The muslims are to fight for them” . ”If a female Christian is married to a muslim, it is not to take place without her approval. She is not to be prevented from visiting her Church to pray.”
”Their Churches are to be respected.They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants. No one of the nation is to disobey the covenant till the last day , that is the day of judgement.”Such were the memorable words of Prophet Mohammad (s) in the year 628 CE,when He grantedthe historic document,also known as Charter of Privillages to the Monks of St . Catherenein the Monastry of Mount Sinai.
Now read this Covenant of the Prophet of Islam side by side with the verse of Holy Qora’an. ” La Ikraha fiddeen ” that there is no compulsion in Islam. And it is true that the Prophet of Islam do no utter any thing on His own but on the will of Allah (swt)
In the light of the above saying of the Rasool (s) is it not a matter of shame and a clear cut appostacy on the part of the Grand Mufti of Saudia , who dare not speak but on the consent and approval of the Keepers and Caretakers of the holiest of the holiest places of Islam and who in their wierdest aqeedah which has no sanction in real Islam , destroyed the priceless Heritage of Islam by demolishing the graves and the Mausoliums there of close friends , Sahabahs and progeny of Prophet (saaws) . Some how they had some compulsions , they tried,but very couldn’t succeed in demolishing the green dome of the Masgid e Nabvi which houses his grave along with the graves of a couple of Sahabah and there are no doubts they may try once again and which may be combined by implementing the Mufti’s fatwah . I don’t know what the compulsions are with the west that no one even the mightiest US did not even stirred a bit by the threat of the demolition of their sared churches . I think any initiation in this operation churches will be the last nail in the coffin of illegal and immoral monarchy of the House of Najed and the liberation of the Arab Peninsula from series of dispotic rulers of the wahabi cult with the combined forces of Shia Muslims , Sunni Muslims , Christians of Syria and elsewhere .
