Is there any kind of creditable institution that authenticates these relics? For example, the supposed footprint of Hadhrat Adam :alayhis: on Adam's Peak. Has it been dated? And even if it has, how can you be sure it belongs to to any one person or another? In fact, with regard to the footprint on Adam's Peak, Buddhists believe it's the footprint of the Buddha, whereas Hindu's think it's shiva's.

Same goes for supposed tombs of the Prophets, how does anybody know for sure?

I don't think these positions can be altered because these are pillars (concrete pillars) and they cannot move them.
Any way I got this information from my uncle who was working in Masjid An Nabawi during is extension.

I now understand what you are trying to ask.
This information is updated after the changes / alterations made by Shah Fahad bin Abdul Aziz

Now if you look at that picture there is no possibility that the pillar can be moved, they cannot move the platform used by Ashab-suffa etc.

What is moved is the position of Mahrab-e-Rasool (SAW). It was moved forward. This mahrab is now at the place where Prophet (SAW) used to place his forehead / perform Sijda. If any one perform Sijda in front of the mahrab now will place his forehead on the place where prophet (SAW) used to stand in prayer. This was done by Abu Bakr (RA) so that nobody can walk or stand where our Beloved prophet (SAW) prostrated.

During the time of the four Caliphs the masjid an Nabawi was extended backward and the mahrab from where the imam lead the prayer was not originally part of Masjid An Nabawi at the time of Prophet (SAW).

I hope i answered your question

Ahmed_Ibn_Adam
28-06-2008, 07:20 PM
Further to my post

You can see there are two Mahrab
1. Mahrab al Nabawi (This is the place from where Prophet (SAW) used to lead the prayers and during the time of Abu Bakr (RA) this mahrab is moved towards sutun hanana (downwards in the picture not towards right) I mentioned the reason in my last post)
2. Mahrab Uthmani (This is the extension during the time of Utham (RA) an reason was that now the people can offer durood / salam in front of the Rauda).

if you think about it guys, the buildings etc have all changed but mount uhud still looks the same unchanged, so you can in a way imagine hazrat muhammad s.a.w and the sahaba on there as it's never changed. Thought provoking...

Just for information if one stands in Masjid An Nabawi and face the Mahrab then this is the direction toward Masjid Al Haram while if one stands in Masjid An Nabawi and face the direction towards Mountain of Uhud then this is the direction towards Masjid Al Aqsa.:D

What an amazing prophet when jinns accepted Islam upon hearing his beautiful voice.

I take it there must be jinns in that masjid, are humans allowed in? I guess as they live for such a long time, there might even be jinns praying there who were around at time of sahaba or tabee'in or tub e taabee'in?

This Masjid was built at a later time and there was nothing there. Any one who goes for Hajj should go to this masjid and recite Surah Jinn (according to scholars). Also this masjid is almost opposite to the Jannat Al Maula Graveyard. I think this is the place where pagan Arabs used to bury their daughters alive.

Yes Alhamdollilah Allah (SWT) gave me this chance. I also got the chance to pray on the platform where Ashab As suffa used to study, also got the chance to pray in the first saf in both Masjid An Nabawi and Masjid Al Haram (In front of Rukn Yamani (fourth corner of Kaaba) It is mentioned that 70,000 angels say ameen for every prayer made at that place.)

May Allah (SWT) give all of this chance.

What a pitiful state. People see it as mummification etc, but the fact is even the ground doesn't want his body, and spat him out hence he hasn't even been offered a burial and never will be.

I can say with absolute belief that if you tried to bury him the ground would spit him out straight away and if you tried to burn him, the body wouldn't burn, as Allah has promised to keep him preserved as a reminder for every human till the end of time.

The body of this Pharoh Ramses was not mummified. This is a misconception. Infact his boday remained in the salty water for hundreds of years yet it was preserved. This is one of the miracles of Quran.

Utham (RA) once asked the Prophet (SAW) about the boundary of Jannat Al Baqee graveyard (All those buried within the boundary will go to heaven according to scholars). Prophet (SAW) asked him to throw/ fire an arrow (They were standing towards Masjid An Nabawi side of Jannat al Baqee).The place where this arrow fell was marked as the boundary of Jannat al Baqee according to Prophet (SAW). The grave of Uthman (RA) is also at the same place.

Here is some information.
The Title of the Kings of Egypt was Firoun. The king at the time of Musa (AS) was Ramses 2 (Ramses Thani). He chased Musa (AS) and the Bani Israel and was drowned (Read Surah Baqara 2 : verse 49 and various other places as well). People believe that the body of this firoun is a mummy which is nit true. When British were ruling Egypt this body was found and the British took this body to UK. It said that just before his death even he accepted the religion of Musa (AS).

Four women are mentioned in Quran. Two of them as good and two as evil. The wives of Lut (AS) and Nuh (AS) are mentioned as evil and Mariam (AS) and wife of Ramses are mentioned as good women (Surah Tahreem 66 : verse 10 -12)

Well brother it is very difficult to prove the authenticity of lot of things. People have done research and some of the things are in the museum so may be these people can explain about the whether these things are authentic or not.

Also people have different opinions about places like where Ashab Al Kahaf were, Graves of Prophets etc.

In another place I read that Adam (AS) and Howa (AS) met for the first time on the earth in Arafat. Huwa (AS) was sent down to the city of Jeddah (Which means mother / grandmother (pronounced as Jiddah and not Jeddah)). So considering all that one can argue that how long would Adam (AS) took to travel from Srilanka to Saudi Arabia. Most of these things are based on Archaeological findings and they can comment how accurate these things are.

Another example is that the Pyrimids in Egypt are considered to be before the time of Musa (AS) and this is based on the Archaeological findings otherwise it is not possible to say how old these are.

For information I have seen these pyramids and the the highest is equal to a 40 story building and one stone / block used to build these pyramids is about the size of an office table.

What is the Ulema's thinking on how these pyramids were built?

These people weren't huge giants as their skeletons don't show this. Either they had amazing intellect or used jinns? Any thoughts on this?

Maybe they were built by a people before the pharoahs who were in fact giants like kom aad?

I haven't came across any comments from Scholars about these and it would nice to hear their views.

I don't think (my personal views :D and may be wrong) that these giants built these because even for giants it will be very difficult to built a 40+ story building without using cranes.

If you look at how advanced these Egyptians were at that time is simply amazing. They invented the paper, Calendar, Wedding cards etc.

I have seen the process which they used to make papers and it is amazing.

Picture of Ramses 2 (Pharoh at the time of Musa (AS) who was drowned)

I am currently reading brief accounts of Musa (a.s) and this evil firaun..

amazing how 1400 yrs ago, quran was revealed to our beloved and accounts for modern day findings ! surely Allah has showed as numerous signs to our sucess............. subhanallah

here is an example..

“And We let the children of Isrā‘īl cross the sea. So, Pharaoh and his troops chased them in transgression and hostility, until when he was about to drown, he said, I believe that there is no god but the One in whom the children of Isrā‘īl believe, and I am among those who submit to Allah. (Allah said,) is it now (that you have come to believe) while you were rebellious all along, and you were among the mischief-makers? So, today, We shall save your body, so that you may become a sign for those after you. And many of the people are heedless of Our signs.” (Yunus)

Bro. he is doomed for eternity where all the non believing oppressors of duniya will cherish!!

I am truly wondering. do we have any idea (from historical point of view) - as to which Pharaoh was the one who oppressed the Israelites / our prophet, as Quran and Hadeeth doesn't give out any names? is this one of those mysteries that only Allah knows best ?

marco100
29-06-2008, 04:20 PM
well as someone else mentioned Quran and Hadeeth don't put names places etc, but seeing as his corpse was retrieved by British in Egypt from the sea, that's the first sign that it indeed was him. He was obviously in better condition then. The archaelogists then through their own process of elucidation ( family lines, locations etc) named him Rameses 2. That's how we know.

Archaelogists who are mainly atheists anyway, worship these mummy's and indirectly call them "gods". ( Na'ubillah). We muslims look at these pitiful mummy's which the ground refuses to accept and mock their current state. Amazing contrast.

"Therefore fear Allah and obey me." "And I do not ask from you any fee for it; my reward is only upon the Lord Of The Creation." "Will you be left peacefully in these favours over here?" "In gardens and water springs?" "And fields and palm-trees, with delicate tendrils?" "And you carve out dwellings in the mountains, with skill?" "Therefore fear Allah and obey me."

You may be right but you cannot prove it that this is a fake picture. Similarly I cannot prove it to be authentic. So i think we can leave it there.

I think this stone was there like the black stone before the birth of Prophet (SAW). Just like the Black stone (Hajr Aswad) this stone stone is also from heaven. This stone used to move up and down when Ibraheem (AS) and Ismail (AS) were building the Kaaba.

The Title of the Kings of Egypt was Firoun. The king at the time of Musa (AS) was Ramses 2 (Ramses Thani). He chased Musa (AS) and the Bani Israel and was drowned (Read Surah Baqara 2 : verse 49 and various other places as well). People believe that the body of this firoun is a mummy which is nit true. When British were ruling Egypt this body was found and the British took this body to UK. It said that just before his death even he accepted the religion of Musa (AS).

Four women are mentioned in Quran. Two of them as good and two as evil. The wives of Lut (AS) and Nuh (AS) are mentioned as evil and Mariam (AS) and wife of Ramses are mentioned as good women (Surah Tahreem 66 : verse 10 -12)

The Qur’an while discussing the story of Yousuf (AS) entitled the leader of Egypt by The King while when Quran discusses the story of Musa (AS) the Leader of Egypt is entitled as Pharaoh. The reason is that the during the time of Yousuf (AS) the Pharohs were not the rulers of Egypt and later then defeated the King and Egypt was in their control then.

And the King said, “Indeed I have seen [in a dream] seven fat cows being eaten by seven [that were] lean and seven green spikes [of grain] and others [that were] dry. O eminent ones, explain to me my vision, if you should interpret visions.” (Yousuf 12 : verse 43)

The wife of Firoun (Ramses II) was Asiya (AS) and she adopted Musa (AS).

The wife of Azeez Al Misr is also mentioned and her name was Zulaikha.

What I said was 4 women are specifically mentioned in Quran. Two as good and two as evil in Surah Tahreem.

Wife of Abu Lahab is also mentioned in the Quran in Surah Lahab. The first few verses of Surah Tahreem are also about one of the Umm Al Momineen.

I don't know about this Quranic text but in case of Urdu which is written in the same way as Arabic used to be written without dots. The reason was the people in the old days find it insulting if any one puts dot in the text. This was because of the command of the people on the language.

How would people read the quran correctly without dot in old days..

It could be read as for example: Kul, Kal, Kel
With dots you know which one to pronounce.

Do you have a picture of first quran with the dots in the text?

There are two different things. Kasra, Fatha and Damma (Aarab) while dots are different. For example there is a letter jeem with a dot it.

If you are referring to Aarab then these were added by Hajjaj Bin Yousuf. He was the father in lae of Mohammed bin Qasim who defeated Raja Dahir who was ruling in India. Mohammed bin Qasim spread Islam in Indian subcontinent.

To my best knowledge, dots were introduced later.
At the time if you wrote a letter to your fellow with full tashkeel and dots then you'd be considered mad or be taken as doing a joke.

Masjid e Tooba in Karachi, Pakistan. This masjid is built in 1969 and is is often claimed to be the largest single dome masjid in the world. The dome of the Masjid is 72 meters (236 feet) in diameter, and is balanced on a low surrounding wall with no central pillars. Masjid e Tooba has a single minaret standing 70 meters high. The central prayer hall has a capacity of 5,000 people. It has been built keeping acoustics in mind. A person speaking inside one end of the dome can be heard at the other end.

I have posted a picture of Kaaba from inside in this thread. This is a latest pictures. Hateem is considered to be a part of Kaaba and was originally inside Kaaba but when the Kaaba was rebuilt during the time of Prophet (SAW) [before he became a Prophet] this portion was left outside because of lack of funds. Praying inside hateem is equivalent to praying inside Kaaba. I don't have any information whether it is allowed to pray inside Kaaba.

Inside Kaaba there are three pillars, door of repentance (Bab tauba). The pots used for cleaning the walls of Kaaba are also hanging inside.

Performing Hajj or Umrah is indeed a life changing experience. When I came back after performing Hajj I was completely changed. I fet very bad about tose people who wanted to go for hajj but have no resorces. I spend lot of time in telling people about Hajj and places in Makkah and Madina. Alhamdolliah some of my friends became very excited and they went for Hajj.

While one is in Makkah he / she spend all his / her time doing ibada like performing prayers in Haram, doing tawaf, recite Quran etc all day yet it seems at the end of the day that he / she has done nothing.

A person is not worried about job / earning money, about his / her relatives / friends etc and all the concentration is on doing ibada.

I pray that Allah give every one a chance to go for Hajj.

Masjid of the 40 Abdals on Jabal Qasyun (Damascus, Syria)

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said, 'Abdaals will
be found in Shaam. They will be forty in number. Whenever one of them passes away, he will be replaced by another. It is through them that Allah Ta'ala will cause it to rain and also grant the Muslims victory over their enemy and remove a possible punishment.' (Musnad Ahmad)

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said, 'The Abdaals of my Ummah shall be forty, of which twenty will be in Shaam and eighteen in Iraq. Every time one passes away, another replaces him. When Qiyaamat, occurs, all will pass away.'



Ali (ra) once warned his followers not to curse the people of Damascus with whom they were at war, saying:

'Do not curse the people of Sham , for among them are the Abdal through whom Allah sustains you, bestows His mercy upon you and makes the rains fall upon you.'
