I find that a very odd move for Saudi to even think of. I hope the actions that have been claimed on that site (not by the site) are not carried out.

I agree that what they are doing is wrong in destroying places such as Uhud. That would be destroying history, and Uhud stands as a testimony to the military genius of the Messenger :arabic5: and one can learn alot of how the battle itself took place when one goes there and looks at it.

But places like where the Prophet :arabic5: was born, I dont see the purpose of keeping that. People will start to go there and seek barakah from that place (which im positive is already occuring). Which reminds me of the fact that Umar r.a. cut down the tree under which the Prophet took the Bai'ah at Hudaybiyah even though that very tree was mentioned in the Quran. The reason he did so was that there were people then that were starting to take that tree, and that area as a place to seek Barakah. He cut it down even though a few other Sahabah were against it.

Overall, it is a noble effort (that website), and I think that a balanced approach is best.

No But Omar ibn al Khatab cut of a tree that the prophet used to hang his sword on because people were going there and seeking barakah from it, no one told him to leave it and not ruin it for the rest of us..
many of the things that they take down are so that they can make space for more expantions to the Holy masjids, and they have signs that tell you where each thing was...
So yes more people praying in the mosque and protection of Tawheed..

How about using a tomb/mausoleum building as restaurants? If it's prohibited, I'll stop eating at Transfer Road.:rollseyes
