From the ulamah of Deoband, it was Maulana Shabbir Ahmad ‘Uthmāni who was the one entrusted with presenting the opinion of The Ulamah of India. When he spoke, he spoke for 2 hours. He stated that Rasulullahﷺ has in fact forbidden from building on top of gravesbut when the dome of Rasulullahﷺ was built, it was built on an already pre-existing build-ing. So the dome is not built on top of the grave rather it's built on top of an already existing building therefore, the term bidah doesn't apply in this case. When they heard this answer of Maulāna Shabbir ‘Uthmāni, it was so satisfying that they had no objection and accepted it as an evidence for keeping the green dome. This was due to the great knowledge that Maulana Shabbir Ahmad ‘Uthmāni and the scholars of India as a whole. Through Allah’s grace, he was such as grand personality that with his answer, the green dome of Rasulullah was saved from being demolished.
Just found this thread...what a pleasant surprise. The original post is from my friend Samir's blog who translated it. Its probably one of 3 best things you can read on the Internet (the other 2 also have to do with Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasalam).
I have been trying to collect all historical pics of Madina, so this thread and the other one are great! I have a lot of pics of the white dome of Fatima رضي الله عنه before its demolition. And some videos of historical sites in Madina. I hope to make a youtube clip compiling it all...maybe after Ramadhan.
I have a portion of an old carpet of Riyadul Jannah (they replace it every few years). The fragrance of Riyadul Jannah is the best smell in the entire world. It is overwhelming and a spiritual experience on its own. I wish there was a way to replicate it. I asked a ittar guy if he could and he says he's never smelt it. How sad. :(
Is the fragrance you're talking about also the one used in the haram at Makkah ? If so know that the Eyüp Mosque in Istanbul uses the exact same fragrance so there should be a way to get it.
The oud used on the kiswah (Ghilaaf) of Kaabah is one of the highest grade.. never smelled anything like it..
While at Makkah Mukarramah i inquired with Abdus samad Al Qurashi.. a leading name in perfumery.. he said the one used on the Kaaba comes directly from the prince.. and is valued at 11,000 Saudi Riyals per Tola (12 ml )..
The imitations do not come anywhere close to that fragrance..
As Masjid Nabawi they burn oud chips at around noon time.. i observed this while sittng at the Maujah shareef.. ( the seating area where his blessed feet are directed).. and it is also of very high grade oud..
At Riyadhul Jannah i think they use some Mukhallat ( mixture).. not sure though..
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
