TEXT:
When attending a course for persons going for Umrah, in Malaysia, the Ustaz told this story of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. –

“Someone was digging a tunnel underground in Medina, to reach to the grave of the Prophet S.A.W. with ill intentions. And the Prophet S.A.W. appeared in the dream of the Governor of Medina and asked for ‘help” to prevent the desecration of his grave. And the Governor thereafter reconstructed the base and sides of the grave to prevent any such access”

This story is an insult to the Prophet S.A.W., for throughout his prophethood, he had never asked anyone for help from a helpless position. If ever he had used the word ‘help’ to his friends, it was out of politeness and not needs. His relationship with Allah was (and is) such that Allah took good care of him at all times. There are many stories of how Allah protected him and his dignity without the help of anyone.

This story has to be investigated. And unless there is irrefutable proof that the prophet had actually appeared in a dream and asked for help, this story has to be stopped and erased from any teachings or speeches.

Can you please do what is right. May Allah help us.

It depends how one words the story and how one perceives it.Also, it is a fact that when something is not written a particular standard format, it changes from generation to generation.Same goes with here.

The story stands...It was the last Hamavi King Abdul Aziz,who was an avid lover of the Prophet(SAW). There was a Jewish person who was living in his constituency posing as a very religious,pious old Muslim man,who never came out of his shack.Prophet(SAW) appeared in King Abdul Aziz's dream and from what "I" know Prophet(SAW) told the King that there is a person who is trying to hurt him while the King was not doing anything to prevent it.Prophet(SAW) even showed him the picture of that Jewish person to King Abdul Aziz.

King Abdul Aziz summoned all his viceroys,advisors etc and asked them to invite all-old,young,old persons to his Palace to give food himself.The Jewish person excused himself from going there.The King himself watched carefully to look out for the Jewish person,however,couldn't find him.

The following night,Prophet(SAW) again appeared in his dream and told the King that the Jewish person is continuing with his intentions.This made the King very worried,who immediately summoned all his deputies,viceroys etc and inquired if each and everyone person was invited the other day.It was found out that an old,religious person had excused himself from coming. The King himself,alongwith his deputies and soldiers went to that old person's shack,and arrested him and found that from his shack he had dug a tunnel leading to the Rauza of Prophet(SAW).

Not sure how this story was perceived,c'ause it is a matter of strong love and respect that Prophet(SAW) would appear in someone's dream even,leave apart what was even said in the dream. The Prophet(SAW) informed King Abdul Aziz,this is such an honor that Prophet(SAW) appeared in his dreams. No offences,but how can one even believe that Prophet(SAW) asked  for help when he split the moon in two halves and brought the sun up after it had set.

People might have different versions of the above story but again our perception of things also affects it. Some people see a glass half full while others see it hald empty.Similarly,what some people can view as an honor others can word it to sound as a disgrace.

AoA

This incident has been related for emperor Noor Ud Din Zangi (RA) who was also a crusador.


This is very famous in Pakistan......this is even related by Ulema e karam to show Azmat e Mustafa (Sallahu Alihi Wsallam) & that he is alive in his Holy Grave.  There must be references available.

Allah & His Rasool knows the best

Assalam Alaikum,

This post is quite old, so I'm sure the author will perhaps not be able to read it.

I just came across it today by accident. But to clarify for future readership.

The incident of the Holy Prophet appearing in the dream of Sultan Noor ud Din Zangi is true. However, asking for help is something you perceived yourself. If you put slightly more thought to it then you would have understood it properly.

Note, the Holy Prophet does not ask for help. He commands.

Allah Taalah does not need our help. Yet Allah Taalah has angels appointed for different tasks.

Allah Taalah does not need us to listen to His Message. Had He Ordained "Be", the whole world would have submitted to His Worship. There would have been no need for Prophets and Saints.

The command of the Holy Prophet is certainly a great Blessing for Sultan Noor-ud-Deen Zangi. It escalates the status of the Sultan, not reduce the status of Rasool Allah (Naazubillah) as you have perceived.

If ever he had used the word 'help' to his friends, it was out of politeness and not needs.

You have said so yourself in the above sentence. It is the mechanism by which ordinary people are blessed, escalate ranks and become special by putting their allegiance and love of the Holy Prophet into practice during testing times.

Asalaam Alaikum, I will try and relate the story as best as i could from memory. In the time of a certain Caliph listed above, there was 2 seemingly pious Muslims. They were very wealthy and settled in Madinah and soon gathered amongst the people there a sizeable following. They used to distribute food and things after prayer to gain the trust of the people. Soon the people of Madinah said "So and so are nice people". They were in reality however, liars and actually 2 Christians. Asthagfirullah, they came on a misguided mission (by their pope i think) to do something to the Grave of the Best of Creation (Salalahu Alayhi Wasalaam). One night the Prophet (Salalahu Alayhi Wasalaam) came to the Khilafa in a dream and said to him "These people are pestering me (ie>irritating me/casuing a nuisance)" or the like of something similiar. The Khalifa was confused thinking "Who???" So he went to see a buzurgh and he said undoubtedly this dream is true. Someone is upto mischeif in Madinah. So the Khalif arrived there with his army and DIDNT TELL anyone of his dream and mission. Soon he came to know of the 2 strangers from foreign lands. When he enquired about them the people said "They are good and pious Muslims". One thing led to another and he followed them home. When they got there his soldiers entered and he went into their house. Inside, he found a trapdoor and a tunnel, which was leading to the blessed grave of Rasulalah (Salalahu Alayhi Wasalaam). They were indeed digging a tunnel and it was true of course. The Caliph had them beheaded. Both of them. He then (i think) constructed the surrounding area under the mausoelum in either concrete or iron to stop further mischeif. And Allah knows best. Walaikum Asalaam

Assalam o Aalikm

I register my self at this form only to say that this is a true story. During the last extension of masjid nabwi(SAWW) few years ago, the tunnel (digged by two non muslims) had appeared while some heavy mechinery was digging that place for pillars. I have the pictures of this tunnel and of the opening ofthe tunnel.

ASALAAM ALAI KUM

THIS ACCOUNT IS 100% CORRECT

PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING QURAN VERSES INTO ACCOUNT AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND INSHAALLAH.

61:14 O ye who believe! Be ye helpers of Allah. As said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples, "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah." Said the disciples, "We are Allah's helpers!" then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved. But We gave power to those who believed, against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.


In the above revelation,certainly,it was ALLAH AZ WA JAL who helped the Prophet with the means of a pious muslims. We are living in a world of reasons and behind the curtain of reasons we should see the work of ALLAH AZ WA JAL at ALL times InshaALLAH.

Wasalaam Alai Kum.
