We noted earlier that in 1806 the Wahhabi army occupied Madina Munawwara when they left no religious buildings, Masjids, Baqi graveyard, etc., undemolished. The Wahhabi army’s destruction campaign targeted the graves of the martyrs of Uhud, the mosque at the grave of Sayyid al-Shuhada’ Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib and the mosques outside the Baqi’: the Mosque of Fatima al-Zahra, the Mosque of al-Manaratain, and Qubbat’ al-Thanaya (the burial site of the Prophet’s incisor that was broken in the battle of Uhud). The structures in the Baqi’ were also leveled to the ground and not a single dome was left standing. This great place that was visited by millions of Muslims over many centuries became a garbage dump, such that it was not possible to recognise any grave or know whom it embraced.
Then he writes about the Razing the Gardens and Wells of the Companions ®: You eliminated the garden of the Sahabi Salman al-Farisi ® which contained a datepalm-tree planted by the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wasallam) and you destroyed the well of al-‘Ayn al-Zarqa’ near Quba’ and the well of Aris – the “well of the ring." You also forbade sighting of the well of Ruma which ‘Uthman ® had bought from a Jew and turned into a permanent endowment for the Muslims in the way of Allah (swt). There are many other important vestiges that were either eliminated or defaced and changed. Regarding the razing of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari’s ® house the Shaykh says: You wreaked destruction on the house of the great Companion Abu Ayyub al-Ansarî ® who hosted the Prophet – Allah bless and greet him and his Family – upon his arrival in Madîna al-Munawwara before the building of his noble apartments. All the periods that preceded yours have preserved this vestige, including your immediate predecessors. But you destroyed this most noble vestige which used to be in the qibla of the most prayer-niche (mihrâb) of the noble Prophetic Mosque on the pretext that “the polytheist Muslims” derived blessings from it!! The Shaykh also writes about the Wahhabi destruction of an invaluable library near the house of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari ®: You destroyed, near the house of Abu Ayyub al-Ansarî ® the library of Shaykh al-Islam ‘Arif Hikmat which was filled with priceless books and manuscripts. Its fine Ottoman architecture was unique. You destroyed all of the above when it was far from the enlargement of the Sanctuary and had nothing to do with it. Finally he sums as follows regarding the destruction of Madina Munawwara:
You also destroyed the well of Bir Ha’ inside the enlargement area, leaving no trace of it nor marker indicating its former existence. The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wasallam) entered it as mentioned in Sahîh al-Bukhari and elsewhere. You spared none of the vestiges of al-Mustafa (sal Allahu alayhi wasallam) and his Companions ® in Madîna, only the Prophetic Mosque.
