Mecca Bucks: Why Saudis invited Starbucks to Islam’s holiest city

Zvika Krieger, The New Republic Published: Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Multinational capitalism and its edifices rise in the shadow of Mecca’s Grand Mosque.

According to some popular Muslim accounts, the marble Kaaba structure at the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca was built first by the angels before God created mankind, reconstructed by Adam, and later rebuilt by Abraham and Ishmael. It’s safe to say that none of these builders could have anticipated the latest use of the Mosque’s image, in a promotional DVD for the Abraj Al Bait Towers, a giant new skyscraper complex slated to be built just across the street from one of the entrances to the Grand Mosque. The DVD shows a beautiful woman sitting in one of the towers’ luxury apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook thousands of pilgrims circling the Kaaba below. Eyes flashing a come-hither stare from beneath her tightly wound headscarf, she asks prospective buyers in Arabic, “Would you like to be here in this place in front of the Kaaba year after year?”

Unlike the United Arab Emirates, with its Western-friendly, oil-money-flush megalopolises Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia had, until very recently, resisted commercializing its major cities–particularly Mecca, site of Islam’s holiest relics, where millions of pilgrims flock yearly to perform the hajj. But the dramatic rise in global oil prices, and the construction boom across Saudi Arabia that followed, has finally caught up with the city where Mohammed was born.

A report by the Saudi British Bank (SABB), one of the kingdom’s biggest lenders, estimates that $30 billion will be invested in construction and infrastructure in Mecca over the next four years from local and foreign companies. Up to 130 new skyscrapers are anticipated, including the $6 billion Abraj Al Bait Towers, a seven-tower project that, once completed in 2009, will be one of the largest buildings in the world, with a 60-floor, 2,000-room hotel; a 1,500-person convention center; two heliports; and a four-story mall that will house, among 600 other outlets, Starbucks, The Body Shop, U.K.-based clothing line Topshop (Kate Moss is a guest designer), and Tiffany & Co. En route to the hajj, pilgrims already have the opportunity to stop at cosmetic superstore MAC, perfumery VaVaVoom, and Claire’s Accessories. H&M and Cartier are on the way. “All the top brands are flocking here,” says John Sfakianakis, SABB’s chief economist. “The only thing missing is Filene’s Basement.”

The boom is coinciding with Saudi Arabia’s efforts to diversify its economy, as well as its joining of the WTO in 2005, which forced the kingdom to open its retail sector to foreign companies. Still, it’s not surprising that multinational capitalism has honed in on this market: Lots of tourists on vacation, no matter how holy, tend to have a lax grip on their wallets. But, to pull off this remarkable transformation of Islam’s spiritual seat, including the destruction of many sites with sacred histories to make way for malls and luxury condos, the luxe brands of the world have had to lean on some unlikely allies.

Irfan Al Alawi, the founder and former Executive director the Islamic Heritage Research Foundation and the most vocal opponent of the destruction of Mecca’s historic sites, lives in a house in Mecca built mostly out of salvage from demolished Meccan buildings: hulking wooden doors, intricately carved panels, and ancient stone columns. As the scion of a prominent Hadhrami family descending from the prophet Mohammed, the 40 year old historian has a significant amount of leeway to criticize the government–often joking with the secret police guards stationed outside his house to track his comings and goings (Saudis are thrown into prison on a daily basis for much less).

Alawi uses his freedom to rail against the transformation of his hometown, giving presentations to groups of businessmen about the obliteration of Islam’s most significant places. Alawi estimates that over 300 antiquity sites in Mecca and Medina have already been destroyed, such as the house of the first caliph, Abu Bakr, which was leveled to make room for the Mecca Hilton Hotel. (According to Ivor McBurney, a spokesman for Hilton, “We saw the tremendous opportunities to tap into Saudi Arabia’s religious tourism segment.”)

“It’s not just our heritage, it’s the evidence of the story of the Prophet,” Alawi says, sitting in his incense-filled living room, dressed in his trademark woollen cloak and intricately wound turban–itself an act of rebellion against the austere white robes and simple headdresses that Saudi men are expected to wear. “What can we say now? ‘This parking lot was the first school of Islam’? ‘There used to be a mountain here where Mohammed made a speech’? … What’s the difference between history and legend?” he asks. “Evidence.”

Over protests by groups like the Islamic Supreme Council of America and the Muslim Canadian Congress, Saudi authorities have authorized the destruction of hundreds of antiquities, such as an important eighteenth-century Ottoman fortress in Mecca that was razed to make way for the Abraj Al Bait Towers– a move the Turkish foreign minister condemned as “cultural genocide.” An ancient house belonging to Mohammed was recently razed to make room for, among other developments, a public toilet facility. An ancient mosque belonging to Abu Bakr has now been replaced by an ATM machine. And the sites of Mohammed’s historic battles at Uhud and Badr have been, with a perhaps unconscious nod to Joni Mitchell, paved to put up a parking lot. The remaining historical religious sites in Mecca can be counted on one hand and will likely not make it much past the next hajj, Alawii says: “It is incredible how little respect is paid to the house of God.”

Ironically, however, some major culprits in disrespecting the “house of God” are Wahhabi clerics, crusading to destroy Mecca’s historical landmarks, which they fear will lead to idolatry. Developers are often tipped off by the cleric-run ministries about future construction plans. And the Abraj Al Bait Towers are being partially funded by the government through the King Abdul Aziz Endowment, which the towers’ developers describe as “a religious property” created to serve interests “vital to the welfare of Islamic society.”

Prominent clerics often speak out against conservation efforts like Alawi’s–in fact, it was Wahhabis who ran him out of his job in Mecca in the first place, after his increasingly bold criticisms of government policy irked the clerical elite.

“It is not permitted to glorify buildings and historical sites,” proclaimed Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Baz, then the kingdom’s highest religious authority, in a much-publicized fatwa in 1994. “Such action would lead to polytheism. … [S]o it is necessary to reject such acts and to warn others away from them.”

A pamphlet published last year by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, endorsed by Abdulaziz Al Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, and distributed at the Prophet’s Mosque, where Mohammed, Abu Bakr, and the Islamic Caliph Umar ibn Al Khattab are buried, reads, “The green dome shall be demolished and the three graves flattened in the Prophet’s Mosque,” according to Alawi, executive director of the London-based Islamic Heritage Research Foundation. This shocking sentiment was echoed in a speech by the late Muhammad ibn Al Uthaymeen, one of Saudi Arabia’s most prominent Wahhabi clerics, who delivered sermons in Mecca’s Grand Mosque for over 35 years: “We hope one day we’ll be able to destroy the green dome of the Prophet Mohammed,” he said, in a recording provided by Al Alawi.

The clerics’ stance permits the Saudi government to play it both ways, in a perfect marriage of the secular and spiritual. It can destroy ancient sites and still maintain doctrinal credibility; the massive, capitalistic accumulation of wealth becomes a religious necessity, not an evil. “The government has finally woken up to the commercial value of religious tourism,” Sfakianakis says, “and they are really the ones driving this construction boom in Mecca.”

Saudi officials excuse the unsavoury aspects of the development by arguing that it will help ease the housing and services crunch caused by an explosion in the number of pilgrims (while about 2.4 million hajjis visited Mecca last year, some estimate that, over the next decade, the number could rise to 20 million per year). They dismiss critics like Alawi as having an overly sentimental attachment to historical sites. “It is equally fundamentalist to say that we have to keep everything exactly the way it was while the world around us is changing every day,” says Nabeel Koshak, an associate professor at the government-funded Umm Al Qura University in Mecca. Habib Zain Al Abideen, the Saudi deputy minister of municipal and rural affairs, head of all the kingdom’s hajj-related construction projects, calls the hajj “a good opportunity to visit Mecca and Medina, do some shopping, make a vacation out of it.”

    Hello everyone-

    I am a student at New York University and I’m actually working on a globalization group research project on this exact article for my Global Affairs class. Part of my research is to get the point of view of critics of these actions presented in the article above. I’d like to know what Muslims think about globalization and how it is affecting Mecca and the holy sites within. Basically, I want to hear your feedback.

    Please feel free to start a dialogue as I’d love to hear what you all have to say, whether you are for or against all this. I look forward to reading the responses! Thanks!

    Government wants prevent foolish people from Shirk and Sajdads before Graves.

    Anyone who destroys these sites in my eyes is running towards hell.

    Don’t let WAHABIS into your countries or else they will destroy all your heritage, like they have destroyed their own.

    MY REPLY :

    Just read the hadith of Najd then you will know that the Present Saudi Governament is the DEVIL AND FITNAH leave alone being able to decide what is right and wrong in Islam,so STOP TELLING US THE TRUE SUNNI MUSLIMS TO LISTEN TO YOUR NAJDI SAUDI FILTH

    Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: The Prophet (s)said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The People said, “And also on our NAJD.” He said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham (north)! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle! And also on our NAJD.” I think the third time the Prophet (s) said, “There (in NAJD) is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of Satan.” Sahi Bukhari (Book #88, Hadith #214)
    It can be deduced from the above Hadith that Najd is neither blessed nor a good place but one of Fitna and Evil. Najd has been deprived of the prayers of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) and therefore Najd has the seal of misery and misfortune and hoping for any good from there is going against the Will of Allah.

    NOTE: NAJAD IS THE CENTRAL EASTERN PART OF ARABIA LYING EXACTLY TO THE EAST OF HEJAZ OR MEDINA, PRESENTLY CALLED AS RIYADH HAIL , BURRAYDAH THE CAPITAL OF HYPOCRITES WAHHABIS AND SALAFIS ,THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE GREAT DEVILS AND FITNAH IBN ABDUL WAHHAB AND THE PRESENT WAHHABI SALAFI SAUD DYNASTY

    “The green dome shall be demolished and the three graves flattened in the Prophet’s Mosque. We hope one day we’ll be able to destroy the green dome of the Prophet Mohammed,” he said, in a recording provided by Al Alawi.

    How can any Muslim accept such disgraceful comments?

    Before any of the pseudo-Salafi crew says they actually agree with the above comments (Allah forbid); ask yourself, which pious people looked after the blessed grave of the Beloved Prophet (sall’Allahu Ta’ala ‘alayhi wa’aliyhi wa’sallam)?

  6. Noor July 31, 2008 at 7:17 am #

    Wahabis were people who lived isolated in mountains and were thieves. These people were paid and encouraged by the British government to rebell against the Sunnis of that time to take control of Saudia (of course they were backed by the military power of the British and US, like they have done in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc).
    But to be able to rulled over Saudia, they had to BEND themselves in front of The Bristish and US, which of course they agreed to.
    Hence we can deduce that whatever the Wahabis are doing comes directly from their “master” the US and British.
    As for the brother who is telling to study hadith so as to justify the satanic plans of destruction of the holy places, i would say that he a very little knowledge of how to study a hadith.
    May Allah, the almighty guide these Wahabis in the right path and also help protect these holy places. Ameen.

  7. Muhammad Azeem August 3, 2008 at 6:02 pm #

    Wahabis are the people who don’t have understanding of deen at all (tafaqo fid din). The Holy verses of the Holy Quran, which have got shan e nazool in favour of idols and kufars, the wahabis try to implement these towards the Prophets and saints of Allah. This is gumrahi. The don’t read the Holy verses, which are in favour of Hazoor (SAW) and other pious personalities. The don’t have love for Ahle Bait, So they are Kawarij.
    May Allah save all the Muslim Ummah from their hetrodoxy.
    Ameen

  8. Salahuddin August 22, 2008 at 5:30 am #

    These “wahabis” are agents of the British Empire (New World Order) – its not enough that they have sapped the strength and money of the Ummah, they seek to conquer its very soul.
    The destruction of ancient Islamic sites is to erase the identity of the Muslims….
    Saudi Arabia’s is “diversifying” its economy because the price of oil is about to be plunged by the central banks (by opening up HUGE reserves in Indonesia and Russia). This will shut down OPEC, and drive oil based economies into oblivion. From the the economic fallout, they intend to “rebuild” the culture of the Middle East.

    Globalization = making available the resources of the Earth for exploitation of the few. KSA = the whore of Britain/U.S./Israel. Wake up people!!!

    Salaam,

  9. hussein October 15, 2008 at 12:20 pm #

    The Saudis have NO HISTORY, do you expect them to preserve history.
    The Wahabis have NO TASAWUF, do you expect them to care for religious places.
    A Saudi will go out of his way and spend millions to preserve his own house where he was born , but will conrete over the Prophet’s house.
    Let the TRUTH be told, and may ALLAH restrain them.

  10. MUSLIM December 15, 2008 at 8:19 am #

    Aslam O alaikum to all Muslim Brothers and Sisters.

    Almost all the allegation made by our Muslim Brother on Saudi Government and Wahabis are correct.

    But, simultaneously I would like to advise all Muslim brothers that in order to follow correct path of Islam, we should look within your self also.

    Muslim should not waste his/her time only criticizing other sect, but should keep up grading own Amal, so that other misguided Muslim should come under this right umbrella.

    By just proving that Wahabies are wrong, you can’t prove you are right.

    Remember;

    ** On the day of judgments, Allah SWT will not reward to “better among the worst” but to the best.

    ** On the day of judgments, we don’t have to answer Abdul Whab, Ahmed Raza Khan, Ashraf Ali Thanwi, etc…………… But to Allah SWT.

    ** A Muslim will not go to Jannah only because other is wrong, But he will be dealt according to his own Amal.

    ** A Muslim will not be dealt according to his sect or jamait but according to his own Amal.

    Allah SWT knows the best.

    The cruellity of the House of Saud is obvious,,charging exhorbitant amount on every one who come to perform Haj and Umrah. The fact that Mecca belongs to all Muslims not them alone is something that they should understand..but being a barbaric warriors who only knows to ambush and destroy . Even the Kufur restored their heritage and have created many beautiful museums around the world..do you think that we are so stupid to do syirk..? Have u seen the Kufur stand worshiping their artifacts in the museum? ?

    In the name of “syrik” they have performed biggest syirkik by building more and more buildings for themselves to worship in their hearts as their mighty and successfull development..that they think represent their greatness..

    They have to remember clearly..they are in no position to decide what belongs to all muslims. Not only that they impose VISA for all traveller who wants to visit the house of God..
    But the end of the world is here..when pilgrimage no longer visit Mecca for the sacredness but only for shopping and to show off that which most expensive hotel they dwell in. And Mecca is no different from any other big cities around the worl.

    In the name of ALLAH.. I accept this takdir that has been bestowed upon Mecca and redha with it..because it is akheer zaman , what have happen and the changes that took place are the signs that ALLAH is showing to those who wants to know

    Assalamo-eleikum

    I believe the KSA’s argument of going with the changing world is ridiculous. If they keep the historical sites of two cities namely Makkah and Medinah, I don’t think it will create any kind of backwardness in Saudi Arabia. I mean they have a whole set of other cities to turn into commercial centers. Are they saying that keeping two cities away from commercialism is going to create havoc in economy of Oil rich Saudi Arabia?

    Please, God gave you Makkah and Medinah as a trust. Please take into considertaion feelings of other Muslims before tampering with that trust.

    Thank you

    Ass-Salam-Alaiqum,

    To all the brothers and the Sisters,
    i have been living in Australia and studying about the real Islamic concepts, which Include Quran, Hadit, Sharia Law, Tafseer, and Tawwheed.

    But there is a grater problem which lies in Australia.
    The Wahabi’s or the People who follow Ibn Ab’d Wahab have created a great organization calling as the real muslim, and are getting funded by the Wahabi’s of Saudi Arabia.
    These people are giving wrong daawa or information about Islam.
    These people want Australia’s Judicial law to be changed in future and implement the Laws made by Ibn Ab’d Wahab,

    So Brothers and sisters please make an appeal to the current leaders of Sunnat Jamat to visit Australia and remove people from being Gumrah (Misguided) .

    Assalamu Alaikum bros!

    Why cant we defend Wahabi’s?
    Its because we Sunni’s r not united….. Please for the sake of our Islam we should keep r differences aside and finding fatwas against Sunnis…… Work against Wahabis….

    3 days back a Wahabi from Zimbabwe has come to sri lanka… All sunni bros and sisters r listenin to his conversation and speaches….. Everyday around 500 to 600 cars r parked outside… Where as when r Hazraths from India or Pakistan come they dont come… Why cant we Sunnis be united…. Our Sunnis dont spend time on their kids where they r going, doing, who they socializing with etc… They r into the worldly wealth which they don spend deen ul Islam…. Our youngsters r getting into wahabism daily cuz parents don give attention there kids imaan.. Ask a normal wahabi who is not that rich, he would give money without asking a word to a wahabi freind of his… But r sunni wealthy ppl ask 101 question if we sunni ask them for some donations….. Wahabis r well planned… They have man power plus they supported well financially… Pls. Consider Sunni brothers and sisters. Islam should be thought when the baby is in the womb! Home is the first school! Moms and dads pls take care of ur kids!

    Allah Hafiz!

    what is islam?
    islam is the religion of ALLAH which cannot be lied, through which i came to understand that the religion islam cannot bring new things in islam, it is one, prophet is mohammed pbuh, who was sent by ALLAH, it means that he brought only one way of worshipping ALLAH because he brought what ALLAH HAS REVEALED TO himm from this we can understand that, since ALLAH IS ONE, ALLAH HAS REVEALED ONLY ONE WAY TO WORSHIP HIM, in other words people are telling i am from hanafi maslak or shafi or maleki or hanbli, dont u think that hanafi maslak or shafi or maleki or hanbli could lead to shirk, consider a hindu your labeling him a hindu because he is associating a partner with ALLAH, now consider a hanafi maslak or shafi or maleki or hanbli or any other instead of telling himself i am following the footsteps of mohammed pbuh. thanks and regards

    One wonders, how these structures have survived for centuries, some over 1000 years old and in that time, so many intelligent, knowledgeable people on Islam chose to leave them as they were and yet now, the current power in the region chooses to destroy it all.

    Simple conclusion, the Wahabis are arrogant, self-righteous, and think they know better than all the history that came before them… It is simply outrageous.

    I am of this opinion that the Muslims do not worship the graves. Actually I do not speak and write about the Aqeeda of the people but I want to write and mention here that I have read some books in Urdu and English published by the Saudi government which are full of hatred and create the conflicts amongst the Muslims. Distribution of books by the Saudi government during Hajj is related to Wahabi Aqeeda too.

    Where is an Islamic country on the surface of this earth? Not a single one even not Saudi Arabia which is/has inherited government. An inherited government can never be islamic. And such country is defender of Islam, Ha ! Ha !! Ha !!!. Shame on those people who declare Saudi Arabia an islamic country.

    No doubt, Saudis have money and they have purchased the so-called Ulemas and the managements of the religious organisations only for prolonging their dictatorship. Day and night it is propagated that US armed forces are in Iraq, Afghanistan and at the border of Pakistan and these forces must quit these countries. But not a single word about the US armed forces stationed in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar for years. All these countries are the pictures of same coin because of Aqeeda. Unfortunately, big quantities of hypocrites (the Munafiqs) are available throughout the world.

    Please dont be angry, if I say or write that the Alqaida, Taliban, etc are not only the productions of the USA but heavily financed by the Saudi government to give shelter to Wahabi Aqeeda. And what they are doing the whole world knows.

    I have many times heard that the evils go to the graves of any Buzurgh, Waleeallah, Saint, etc. Ok, but this is notable that these Buzurgh, Waleeallah, Saint, etc never said or told that the evils come to their graves. The same situation is that the evils do Hajj and Umrah and after performing these they do not change themselves. Allah Subaana Wa Taala and Hazrat Mohammad Mustafa Sallallaaho Alaihe Wa Aaliehe Wassallam are not responsible for these evils.

    Dear Muslima and Muslim,
    Sooner or later Mekkah and Medinah will not be in the hands of Saudi-Wahhabi-Najdi-Dynasty, because enough is enough.

    into cities like las vegas and monti carlo this will lead peoples minds away from their traditional and releigous background and turn the future generation away from religon.and other thing i think haj pilgrimage should not turn into an indutry like tourism promotion project.for example see Rome they havent change their ancient cities

May Allah curse the KAAFIR WAHAABIS, and soon the Black Banners or Army of Mahdi (AS) will emerge from Khurasan ( Afghanistan) then they will kill these Bastard Wahhabis like dogs… May Allah kill and perish these so called Muslims who are really MUNAAFIQS of this Time……

    All of the comments I see so far in response to this so-called news item making outrageous allegations against the Saudi Government are highly sentimental, biased and unintelligent. As Muslims we were taught first and foremost by the great prophet(S.A.W) to give our fellow believers the benefit of doubt, and even when we find him wanting, to try and find excuses for him. How about when that fellow believer is the best and closest example of and Islamic government presently on the surface of the earth?.Now I do not see that being exhibited here. All I can see here are sentimental and highly un-educative commentaries by either outright liars or people who know next to nothing about the history of the Saudi Kingdom and how they come to establish true Islam, devoid of idolatory practices, in Saudi Arabia. No body among all the writers tried to find out the Saudi Government side of the story. instead you are all willing to believe one obscure Dr. Alawi (a very wrong name for a genuine Muslim) working for a hideous “research”organisation, located in LONDON!

    Khaan-e- Kabah’s area is expanding, outside area of Khaan-e- Kabah are demolishing and merging in Khaan-e- Kabha by that at most people pray. We know from history it was expanded many times. It is good for Muslims.

     Haazir wa Naazir
    Barailwiyon ka Aqeeda hai ki Allah tala aur Nabi (saw) dono har jagah Haazir (present) aur Naazir (dekhnewale) hain.

    Jabki Quran se Allah tala ka har jagah naazir hona sabit hai lekin haazir to har jagah Allah tala bhi nahi hain.

    Allah tala farmate hain
    Surah Araaf Ch. 7 V. 54, Surah Yunus Ch. 10 V. 3, Surah Sajadah Ch. 32 V. 4, Surah Raad Ch. 13 V. 2
    “..Ar Rahmanu alal arshis tawa..”
    Rahman (Allah) arsh par mustawi (baitha) hai.

    Allah tala farmate hain Surah Baqarah Ch. 2 V. 255 (Ayatul Kursi)
    “.. wasi’a kursi yahus samaawaate wal arze..”
    Uski kursi zameen aur aasman ko ghere hue hai..
    Yaani Allah tala arsh par kursi par baitha hai

    Musa (as) Allah se farmate hain Surah Araaf Ch. 7 V. 143
    “.. Musa ne arz kiya, Aye mere Rab! “Tu mujhe dikh ki mai tujhe ek nazar dekh lu” Irshad hua, “tum mujhe har giz nahi dekh sakte, Lekin tum us pahad ki taraf dekho agar wah apni jagah barqarar raha to tum bhi mujhe dekh sakoge. Jab unke Rab ne us par tajalli farmayi to use rezah rezah kar diya aur Musa (as) behosh ho kar gir pade.”

    In aayton se sabit hota hai ke Allah tala har jagah haazir nahi hai. Agar Allah (swt) har jagah haazir hote to Musa (as) kyon farmate mai tujhe dekhna chahta hu, aur Allah apna tajalli kyun karte agar Allah wahan pahle se hi maujud thha. Balke Allah Arsh par mustawi (baitha) hai. Arsh par mustawi hone ki kaifiyat hame malum nahi, jis tarah Allah ke Alla (swt) ki shaan ke layeq hai usi tarah wah Arsh par mustawi hai. Hamari aqal is ko nahi samajh sakti.

    Usi tarah se Nabi (saw) bhi har jagah haazir nahi hai aur na hi naazir hain. Allah tala farmate hain Surah Aale Imran Ch. 3 V. 44
    “Ye gaib ki khabron me se hai jise ham teri taraf WAHI se puhchate hain, Tu unke paas na thha jab ke wah apne qalam daal rahe thhe ke Maryam ko in me se kaun pale ga.”

    Surah Yusuf Ch. 12 V. 102
    “Ye gaib ki khabron me se hai jise ham teri taraf WAHI kar rahe hain, Tu unke paas na thha jab ke unhon ne apni baat than li thhi aur wah fareb karne lage thhe.”

    Surah Qasas Ch. 28 V. 44 to 46
    “Aur Tur (pahad) ke west ke taraf jab ke ham ne Musa (as) ko Hukm Ahkaam ki WAHI puhchayi thhi. Na to Tu maujood thha aur na tu dekhne walon me se thha(44) Lekin ham ne bahut se naslein paida ki jin par lamba waqt guzar gayi aur na Tu Madyan (shahar) ke rahne walon me se thha ke unke samne hamari aayton ki tilawat karta balki ham hi Rasoolon ke bhejne wale rahe(45) Aur na to Tur(pahad) ki taraf thha jabke ham ne awaaz di balki ye tere parwardigar ki taraf se ek Rahmat hai.”

    Allah farmate hai ke Qayamat ke din Allah (swt) tamam Rasoolon se poochhe ga.
    “Allah jis roz tamam paighambaron ko jama karega, fir irshad farmayega kit um ko kya jawab mila thha, wah (sab Rasool) farmayenge, ‘Hame Kuchh khabar nahi beshak tu hi poshidah baton ko pura janne wala hai’

    Agar Nabi (saw) har jagah haazir hote to ye nahi farmate mujhe kuchh khabar nahi. In Aayton se sabit hota hai ki Nabi (saw) paidayish se pahle kahi haazir nahi thhe na hi naazir thhe aur wafaat ke baad bhi kahi haazir naazir nahi hain.
