It's ironic. Muslims across the world will debate, protest, burn, and even kill in order to prevent anyone from drawing offensive cartoons of Mohammad, the Islamic prophet. Yet, when it comes to the actual destruction of the Kaba, a building that is so central to Islam, Muslims can only write a few articles. It's not a funny irony. It's more of a disgusting irony. But here is another irony.
Mohammad's direct lineage has been, for the most part, killed by Muslims. That's right. Not Jews. Not Christians. Not athiests. Not idol-worhshippers. But Muslims. Muslims have killed Mohammad's grand-children, great-grandchildren, and the list goes on. In fact, even Muhammad's famous daughter Fatima was socially abused by Muslims, and his adopted son, cousin, and hier Ali was killed by Muslims, attacked by Muslims, and robbed by Muslims.
The most aredent opponents of Mohammad's family, his legacy, and his traditions are Muslims. It's ironic. But like I said, it's not a funny irony. Rather it's one of those disgusting ironies. You know the type right?
@makhdoomh know that it is not the buildings that are holy, but it is the land which the Mosque and the ka'bah are on. for example, if you have a relative who has died before (no offence) and has a nice gravestone, will you care about the gravestone or what is in it (i.e the person). likewise, is the ka'bah and the mosque. Also, Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) was in no way or form the heir, know that in Islam, there is no monarchy and it is not allowed.
@makhdoomh The kaaba it's self has been demolished and rebuilt multiple times, it is a building there is no significance of the building other than that. we do not worship the kaaba. to me this article really does not really say something that we should be concerned with. and yes as much as we would like to emulate the prophet(saw) and being close to him the fact is that outside of symbolism with reguards to columns there is no value in them. in terms of the picture of the prophet(saw) this was expressly forbiddened, making and destroying builldings is not forbidden.
