There is no doubt that the Allah Almighty has certainly praised those who fought with the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – on many occasions in the Qur’an. In fact, such is the status of these blessed Muslims that Allah Almighty has even praised the sound of the horses and the sound of the hooves of these horses. This can be clearly seen in Surah Al Aadiyaat.
In this Surah, in verses 1 to 6, the Qur’an declares:
وَالْعٰدِیٰتِ ضَبْحًا ۙ﴿۱﴾ فَالْمُوۡرِیٰتِ قَدْحًا ۙ﴿۲﴾ فَالْمُغِیۡرٰتِ صُبْحًا ۙ﴿۳﴾ فَاَثَرْنَ بِہٖ نَقْعًا ۙ﴿۴﴾ فَوَسَطْنَ بِہٖ جَمْعًا ۙ﴿۵﴾ اِنَّ الْاِنۡسٰنَ لِرَبِّہٖ لَکَنُوۡدٌ ۚ﴿۶﴾
“By oath of those that sprint, breathing heavily. (The horses used in Holy War.) Striking stones with their hooves, sparking fire. And by oath of those who raid at dawn. So thereupon raising dust. Then penetrate to the centre of the enemy army. Indeed man is very ungrateful towards his Lord.”
The Mufassireen have mentioned that the horses mentioned in this verse are those horses which are used by the Mujaahideen in war and they are so respected and beloved that their description has actually been presented in the Qur’an. Allah Almighty takes an oath on the sound of their hoofs, on the fact that when they ride of stones, sparks that fly from their feet, etc. Allah Almighty also takes an oath when they attack the enemies of Islam in the morning and also swears by the dust that these horses create when they ride into their enemies. However, at the end of the verse, Allah Almighty also declares that man is indeed very ungrateful.
What can be further said about the greatness of those objects which Allah Almighty has taken an oath on. This also proves that we as Muslims should also make sure that we also display respect and reverence for these objects which has been so glowingly praised in the Qur’an. At the same time, if this the state and greatness of the horses of these Mujaahideen, what must be the state of these Mujaahideen in the Divine Court of Allah Almighty?
This also proves to us that everything which is connected to Allah Almighty is also something which should be loved and respected by us if we call ourselves true Muslims. This is also the reason that in certain Mazaars, there are swords and other armoury of the Awliya which are given immense respect and only taken out when the ‘Urs of that Saint takes place. Again this proves the true beliefs of the Ahle Sunnah wa Jamaah who display immense respect and reverence for everything connected with Allah Almighty, His Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and His beloved servants.
The sad part is that there is a group of people who consider this display of respect and reverence as Shirk. We wonder what they are saying about the respect which is been accorded to the horses of the Mujaahideen and that too, in the Qur’an? It is a tragedy that most of the blessed relics of Islam have been destroyed but the Kaafirs who disguise themselves as Muslims would give huge amounts of money to the West to maintain their churches and temples. From this we can also come to realise the final destination of the real Muslims and where these so-called Muslims will end up.
If we look at Madina Shareef, it is difficult to find one Islamic relic which Muslims can view and achieve spiritual blessing from. We also know that one of their ardent wishes is to actually destroy the blessed Green Dome in Madina Shareef and one of them has actually mentioned that if he had the chance, he would also destroy the Blessed Qabr Shareef of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. From this, you can see the clear enmity they have in their hearts for the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.
But to date, they have never managed to carry out their nefarious plot. When we see what is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. the first thing which is been destroyed is the blessed graves of the pious servants of Allah Almighty. They are merely fulfilling the aim and objective of their master, Iblis. After all, Iblis has always displayed immense hatred and dislike for the beloved servants of Allah Almighty from the time of Nabi Adam – peace be upon him. Therefore, when we see his disciples destroying these sacred graves in the present time, we should not be surprised.
