The tomb of Sidi Ahmed Zarruq desecrated!


The holy tomb of Sidi Ahmed Zarruq
at his zawiyah in Misrata, Libya

By Allah, we are appalled at the heinous crime committed against awliyaAllah. Allah's words are true. Whoever declares war against His wali, be ready to face His wrath!

The most coward of all cowards are those who fight against a dead man. The most foolish of the ignorants are those who fear the impact a dead person might have on the living that they would attempt to destroy his remains.

The awliyaAllah are indeed alive with or without a tomb, for their tombs as said Mawlana Jalaludin Rumi, are in the hearts of people. Roses may wilt and fade but who can ever disavow its fragrance? 

As a lover of awliyaAllah, the least we could do is ensure their teachings are preserved and practiced for the longest time.

We pray Allah Al-Muntaqim, Allah Al-Qahar will manifest His wrath onto the criminals. Ameen.

26th August 2012: The maqam trespassed
and the remains of the shaykh had been removed.

News as of 8th Sept 2012 as relayed to us by a sister in London: The Sunni brothers of Libya have found the blessed body of Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq unharmed and intact. It is now being kept at a secret location. Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
