Al-Baqi means a tree garden; it is known as Jannat-Al-Baqi because of its holiness. It is simply a graveyard but Muslims all over the world attach it a high importance because it is situated in Madinat-ur-Rasool Where Ahlul bayt (a.s) and nearly 700 companions of prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) buried in it, Daughter of Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) Fatimah Zahra (S.A), Imam Hasan Ibn Ali a.s (2nd Imam), Imam Ali Ibn Al-Husayn a.s (4th imam), Imam Muhammad Baqir a.s (5th imam), & Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq a.s (6th imam), peace be upon them, are buried.
It was a great tragedy in history of Islam that took place on 8 Shawwal 1345 AH, 21 April 1925 by the hands of Ale Saud who demolished Jannat-Al-Baqi graveyard in which graves of Our Ahlul bayt (a.s) and nearly 700 companions of our Holy prophet (Peace be upon him).
It was the sinful effort of Al e Saud just to remove the remaining memories of Ahlul bayt (a.s) and Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him).
Within the same year King Saud bin Abdul Aziz gave another gift to the all Muslims of the world by demolishing Jannat-al-Mualla in Madina where the tombs of Holy prophet (peace be upon him) mother, wife, grandfather and his other ancestors.
Ale Saud(Daish) believed that visiting the graves and the shrines of the Prophets, the Imams, or the saints was a form of idolatry and totally un-Islamic. Those who did not conform to their belief were killed and their property was confiscated. Since their first invasion of Iraq, and till nowadays, in fact, Ale Saud as well as other rulers of the Gulf States, having been carrying out genocide from which no Muslim who disagreed with them was bestows.
Now it is reasonable to believe that destruction which took place on the shrines of Ahlulbayt (a.s) in Iraq on the Shrine of Imam Hassan Askari (a.s) and also in Sirya, on the Shrine of Bibi Zainab (S.A) reflect the same mind set of Ale Saud (Daish).
They were doing anti Islamic campaign, the aim of Ale Saud (Daish) is clearly shown that they want to break the connections of Muslims from their religious principles and also from the holy personalities.
