Graves of Companions of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)
The graves of two companion of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) were opened on the direct orders of these companions in 1932. Over five hundred thousand people including Muslims and Non-Muslims were there to witness the most amazing moment of history. The international media covered the event through big plasma screens.
Both the companions of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), Hazrat Huzaifa (R.A) and Hazrat Jabir (R.A), were died thirteen centuries ago and buried near the river Dajla in Iraq. The companions were very close to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and were highly respected among public during the period of Khulafa Rashideen (R.A).
In 1932, King Faisal saw both companions in his dream ordering him to move their bodies from the graves to some other place because the graves were filling with the water of river. The king forgot the dream in morning and the next night he saw the same dream again. He again forgot the dream due to routine work. The third night he saw the same dream but didn’t pay attention to it.
The Mufti Azam of that period saw Hazrat Huzaifa (R.A) in his dream as well and received the same orders of moving the bodies to another place. The Mufti Azam worried on the dream and went to King Faisal. He informed the king about the dream and the king told him that he was also watching the same dream from several days.
Then they decided to move the bodies of companions of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) from the graves and announced a date in public so that people could come in large numbers. On the day a good numbers of Non-Muslims were there to witness the event. When the graves were opened, the public stunned to see that graves were filled with water.
The most surprisingly thing of that event was the bodies of both companions of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W). The bodies were fresh, unharmed, without any kind of dirt and moreover the hair and beard were also in real shape. After watching the bodies of companions, a large number of Non-Muslims embraced Islam on the spot. The bodies of both the companions of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) were buried to another safe place.
