    The Ministry of Endowments in Syria has issued a statement regarding the grave of Sayyiduna Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz and they have stated that his grave was desecrated by extremists but his body was not removed.

    How would it be wahabi propaganda?! Just because they are shia? If anything Wahabis would consider this act appropriate in accordance to their Usul.

    Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahab's first wave dawah had his followers destroy and level the grave of Hazrat Umar’s brother Zayd ibn Khattab رضى الله عنهما in U’yayna.

    Back in 2012 ISIS destroyed and exhumed and the body of Sidi Ahmad Zurruq رحمة الله عليه to an unknown location.

    And In 2015 the Syrian Al Qaida rebels blew up Imam Nawawi رحمة الله عليه‘s mazar.

    And when you engage with such wahabis and salafis , they celebrate the fact that now these places can’t be “venerated,” and by veneration they injudiciously mean shirk and kufr.

    I've also received reports about this and when I posted the same to a (sunni) group, brothers in there posted some opposing statements that this is wahabi propaganda and claimed that it was fake news. I asked because of this.

    This news has been carried on multiple news outlets. Some have even published the video of the heinous act. You can google to see how widely this news has been circulated. There is even a youtube lecture by Mufti Ashraf Jalali sb on this news topic. It has been further confirmed by Syrian sources here.

    How I wish it was untrue! What's your evidence/source for the contrary?

    Is this verified? I heard that it's untrue.

    The first mujaddid of Islam, Umar the second.

    Pro Assad forces desecrated his blessed grave and have removed the body.
