Prophet Younus Grave Destroyed URGENT: ISIL dug up grave of Prophet Younis (biblical Jonah) in Mosul

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) On Friday a local Nineveh official, Zuhair al-Chalabi said that there is information that almost certainly confirms that members of the organization of the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant dug up the grave of the Prophet Younis in the east of Mosul.

zohair al Chalabi URGENT: ISIL dug up grave of Prophet Younis (biblical Jonah) in Mosul

Zuhair al-Chalabi

Al-Chalabi said in an interview for IraqiNews.com, that “The elements of ISIL controlled the mosque of the Prophet Younis in Mosul since they invaded the city. It is still held by them until now,” pointing out that “elements of ISIL engaged in the process of tampering with the contents of the Mosque.”

Al-Chalabi added that “there is almost certain information stating the fact that the elements of ISIL dug up the grave of the Prophet Younis.”

In just one day, ISIL members committed a series of horrific crimes which illustrate their hostile nature, said Iraqi police in Ninawa spokesman Maj. Ahmed al-Obaidi.

They torched 11 churches and monasteries out of 35 scattered across the city of Mosul, and hours later destroyed statues of poets, literary and historical figures of which Mosul has long been proud,” he said.

Three Sunni clerics were killed at the hands of ISIL gunmen in different parts of Mosul, he added.

The clerics, named Khattab Hassan, 43, Riyadh al-Wandi, 39, and Abdul Ghafoor Salman, 48, had called on local residents to reject the ISIL and had refused to leave the city, al-Obaidi said.

The gunmen then demolished the historic grave of the prophet Yunus (Jonah) and the shrine of prophet Shayth (Seth), revered by Muslims, Christians and Jews alike, which are located inside centuries-old mosques, he said.

ISIL elements have committed numerous crimes in Mosul in addition to the attacks on places of worship, setting fire to government buildings and violating the civil liberties of city residents, al-Obaidi said.

Here is an unverified video of prophet Yunus (biblical Jonah) mosque and tomb destroyed by ISIL terrorists:

4444 URGENT: ISIL dug up grave of Prophet Younis (biblical Jonah) in Mosul

On one of the two most prominent mounds of Nineveh ruins, rises the Mosque (an Nestorian-Assyrian Church before) of prophet Younis “Biblical Jonah”, the son of Amittai, from the 8th century BC which is believed to be the burial place of him, and where King Esarhaddon had once built a palace.

Father Sabah Boutros of St. George’s Church in Baghdad said to IraqiNews.com that the repercussions of these crimes will not affect the brotherly ties between the Muslims and Christians of Nineveh

“We have lived with our Muslim brothers in Nineveh for centuries in peace and harmony and never exchanged violence on any day,” Boutros said. “On the contrary, our joys were mutual, and so were our griefs.”

Boutros said the recent attacks on religious sites and properties do not represent Muslims and only represent the ISIL “as it launches its terrorist attacks on all without exception”.

UPDATE July 6, 2014: IraqiNews.com publishes photos of ISIL destroying and looting Shia, Shunni and Sufi mosques: http://www.iraqinews.com/features/urgent-isil-destroys-mosul-mosques-pillages-contents/

UPDATE July 9, 2014: Today, archbishops from Baghdad, Mosul and Kirkuk said the violence in Iraq is hastening the end of nearly 2,000 years of Christianity there as the few remaining faithful flee Islamic State militants.

War and sectarian conflict have shrunk Iraq’s Christian population to about 400,000 from 1.5 million before the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, they said on a visit to Brussels seeking European Union help to protect their flocks. And now, even those who stayed are leaving for Turkey, Lebanon and western Europe, they claimed.

The three – Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako, Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul Yohanna Petros Mouche and Kirkuk’s Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Youssif Mirkis – are all Eastern Catholics whose churches have their own traditional liturgy but are loyal to the pope in Rome.

‘The next days will be very bad. If the situation does not change, Christians will be left with just a symbolic presence in Iraq,’ said Sako, who is based in Baghdad.

‘If they leave, their history is finished.’

    It is so very sad to see the bloodshed of the innocents around the world, specially in the middle east region. It is stated in the holy book of Qoran ”if one kills an innocent it is as if he killed the entire humanity and if one saves an innocent life it is as if he saved the entire humanity”. Killing of any innocent human, regardless of their belief, is punished by God and the punishment is the hellfire. We are all created by ONE GOD so then why we differentiate between Muslim, Christian, Jews and others? It is not us who must decide who is the sinner – it is only God who decide and will decide who is the sinner. Unfortunately, the world we live in today is a ‘power hungry’ world than ever before. ‘Divide and rule’ has been the policy of the West for hundreds of years. Division created between the Muslims and Christians, division created between the Muslims and Jews. Now we see a new wave in the last 25 years – division is created between Shia and Sunni. Before the west never knew what was Shia and what was Sunni. It was only during the Iraq – Iran war that the west started to know about Shia-Sunni. They found a nitch and used it to further divide the Muslim – Christian- Jewish world based on ethnic background so the West can rule with unprecedented power. This is what happening now and this is the recipe for ONE WORLD ORDER. What the West has failed to realize that ‘terrorism and chaos’ (which is what they have been doing for hundreds of years in the name of ‘peace’, specially in the last 50 years) breeds to more terrorism and chaos within the nations. The empires have emerged and gone into the history books. What goes up must come down. What is given life must die. This is the law of nature. The end is near. It wont be much longer when we face the Day of Judgement before our Creator. So my message to the power hungry world — your atrocities and crime against the innocent and against the humanity will not last long. We are here to die and we are going to die one day!

    I am a Sunni and what I have to say is that the ISIS are the agents of the west. The world is now becoming increasingly aware of their devious ways. They are controlled by the west. Both Shia and Sunni have lived in relative peace throughout the glorious history of Islam. Both Shia and Sunni love and respect the Ahle bait. The great Imam Shafi (RA) said that if loving the Ahle bait makes you Shia then I am the biggest Shia. SubhaanAllah.
    They say little knowlegde is dangerous and certainly These Naji scumbags fit this description perfectly. They cannot define what Shirk is and set about destroying the shrines of those whom Allah swt loves most. To my Shia brethren, we Sunnis are with you. May Allah swt destroy ISIS.

    Mr Salim,

    I can tell from your last post that you belong to Ahle-Shia. I have no problem with this. It is time that real Sunnis (the majority of Sunnis) and real Shia (the majority if shia) came together to combat this fitnah of the Najdis. However as a Sunni myself, who is against ISIS and firmly synpathetic with the Iraqi people majority of whom are Shia. could I ask you not to insult certain personalities. Remember Hazret Imam Hasan A.S. Did not Insult Hadret Muawiyah R.A. and made peace with him to avoid bloodshed of MUSLIMS. You or any Sunni/ Shia do not and will never know better than Hazret Imam Hassan A.S.
    Also RasulAllah (S.A.W) when speaking about Hazret Imam Hassan A.S. said words to the effect that this grandson of mine will make peace between two armies of muslims.
    He did this when he made peace with Hazret Muawiyah R.A.
    My point is that RasulAllah S.A.W. foresaw that the act of peacemaking of Hazret Imam Hassan A.S. was by divine will of Allah swt and not due to backing down because of fear etc and second that Hazret Muawiyah R.A. Was a Muslim and therefore a companion of RasulAllah SAW.
    However feel free to insult the accursed Yezid.
    Lets not divide ourselves and save the ummah from the fitnah of the Najdis from within and Zionists externally.

    Dear brothers,

    There is one thing that definitely unites us Muslims. This is the situation of the Muslims in Palestine. I know we all feel passionately about this. Could I ask you all to boycott certain companies that fund the terrorist Zionist state of Israel in your home countries. You already be aware that their is a global boycott of Israeli products and so please excuse me if you are already boycotting. Well done to you. For the rest of the Muslims, please boycott, Macdonalds, Coca-cola, nestle and Jaffa oranges as well as dates from companies named Jordan valley and king Solomon. Their are many more companies but these are the common ones that Muslims use daily. Please ask your families and friends to do the same and let’s bring Israel to it knees in an civilised, intellectual way. Pls don’t ever think “what difference will it make just me boycotting” because it is already making a difference here in the U.K. Remember it is from droplets that oceans are made!
    Thankyou

    Letter to all Christians from Prophet
    Muhammad Sallallaho
    alaihiwassalam
    How should Muslims treat Christians? With
    violence? Anger? Hatred? The answer is none
    of the above. Below is the English rendering
    of a letter written by the
    Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaho
    alaihiwassalam) to all Christians.
    In a time when tensions between Islam
    and Christianity seem to be at an all time high,
    we remind our Christian friends that a true
    Muslim cannot hurt a Christian in any way,
    neither by his hand, nor by his tongue.
    The below letter requires no explanation. We
    hope it provides credence and comfort that
    Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaho
    alaihiwassalam) truly celebrated his Christian
    friends. (The original letter is now in the Topkapi
    Museum in Istanbul)
    “This is a message from Muhammad ibn
    Abdullah, as a covenant to those who adopt
    Christianity, near and far, we are with them.
    Verily I, the servants, the helpers, and my
    followers defend them, because Christians are my
    citizens; and by Allah! I hold out against anything
    that displeases them.
    No compulsion is to be on them. Neither are
    their judges to be removed from their jobs nor
    their monks from their monasteries.
    English Translation of the Achtiname by
    Richard Pococke:
    1. Muhammad (Sallallaho
    alaihiwassalam) the son of ‘Abd Allah, the
    Messenger of Allah, and careful guardian of
    the whole world; has wrote the present
    instrument to all those who are in his
    national people, and of his own religion, as
    a secure and positive promise to be
    accomplished to the Christian nation, and
    relations of the Nazarene, whosoever they
    may be, whether they be the noble or the
    vulgar, the honorable or otherwise, saying
    thus. I. Whosoever of my nation shall
    presume to break my promise and oath,
    which is contained in this present
    agreement, destroys the promise of God,
    acts contrary to the oath, and will be a
    resister of the faith, (which God forbid) for
    he becomes worthy of the curse, whether
    he be the King himself, or a poor man, or
    whatever person he may be.
    2. That whenever any of the monks in his
    travels shall happen to settle upon any
    mountain, hill, village, or other habitable
    place, on the sea, or in deserts, or in any
    convent, church, or house of prayer, I shall
    be in the midst of them, as the preserver
    and protector of them, their goods and
    effects, with my soul, aid, and protection,
    jointly with all my national people; because
    they are a part of my own people, and an
    honor to me.
    3. Moreover, I command all officers not to
    require any poll-tax on them, or any other
    tribute, because they shall not be forced or
    compelled to anything of this kind.
    4. None shall presume to change their judges
    or governors, but they shall remain in their
    office, without being deported.
    5. No one shall molest them when they are
    travelling on the road.
    6. Whatever churches they are possessed of,
    no one is to deprive them of them.
    7. Whosoever shall annul any of one of these
    my decrees, let him know positively that he
    annuls the ordinance of God.
    8. Moreover, neither their judges, governors,
    monks, servants, disciples, or any others
    depending on them, shall pay any poll-tax,
    or be molested on that account, because I
    am their protector, wherever they shall be,
    either by land or sea, east or west, north or
    south; because both they and all that
    belong to them are included in this my
    promissory oath and patent.
    9. And of those that live quietly and solitary
    upon the mountains, they shall exact
    neither poll-tax nor tithes from their
    incomes, neither shall any Muslim partake
    of what they have; for they labor only to
    maintain themselves.
    10. Whenever the crop of the earth shall be
    plentiful in its due time, the inhabitants
    shall be obliged out of every bushel to give
    them a certain measure.
    11. Neither in time of war shall they take them
    out of their habitations, nor compel them to
    go to the wars, nor even then shall they
    require of them any poll-tax.
    12. In these eleven chapters is to be found
    whatever relates to the monks, as to the
    remaining seven chapters, they direct what
    relates to every Christian.
    13. Those Christians who are inhabitants, and
    with their riches and traffic are able to pay
    the poll-tax, shall pay no more than twelve
    dirhams.
    14. Excepting this, nothing shall be required of
    them, according to the express order of
    God, that says, ‘Do not molest those that
    have a veneration for the books that are
    sent from God, but rather in a kind
    manner give of your good things to them,
    and converse with them, and hinder
    everyone from molesting them’ [29:46].
    15. If a Christian woman shall happen to

    17. Whosoever acts contrary to my grant, or
    gives credit to anything contrary to it,
    becomes truly an apostate to God, and to
    his divine apostle, because this protection I
    have granted to them according to this
    promise.
    18. No one shall bear arms against them, but,
    on the contrary, the Muslims shall wage
    war for them.
    19. And by this I ordain, that none of my
    nation shall presume to do or act contrary
    to this my promise, until the end of the
    world.

    The average American’s biggest problem with Islam is not the religion itself, but the lack of separation of church and state. To the average US citizen this combination of religious and political government combined makes all muslims guilty by association. Also why cannot ISIS be stopped? Many here think it’s a lack of political and therefore RELIGIOUS will to defeat extremism. Again guilt by association. Would it be possible for Muslims to form a non-violent coalition and formerly denounce extremism? Again I don’t think so. To openly oppose extremism is would be to renounce Islam. As messed up as the politics here in USA are you people need to first help yourself. No way we can do anything about it, and I wish we would stop trying.

    Please explain to me how Bangladeshi; Pakistani; Indian; and other asian Convert muslims claim to know more about what is “shirk” than the Arabians muslim; christian jews living in Iraq for thousands od years. How can a devil from Egypt or Yemen mixed with Asians and few iraqis create this fake group isil can cause so much death. They are not muslims isil are a group of evil people doing the devils work not allahs. We should be monitoring entry into Iraq of all asians and all arabs of non iraqi origin.

      Muslims converts of south asia specifically pakistan and india are not true muslims.Like ISIS is converting non muslims at gun point,centuries ago arabs converted them into muslims at the point of sword.Those who were brave did not convert,but those who were weak got converted.Hence entire muslim population of these countries is weak genetically.Please don’t let them interfere into Iraq’s internal problem.Pakistan and Chechnya are exporters of jihadis.I also think only a foreigner will cause so damage to Iraq,but no Iraqi will cause so harm to his own country.

    It’s amazing that with the amount of evidence of the crimes ISIS has committed that some people will still deny these atrocities. Are the images of people fleeing murderous ISIS people fake? Of course not. This is a barbarian criminal army. If you watch those videos it’s obvious that they are very afraid and that the crimes are true. The best way to live is in peace and harmony with others whatever their religion. Instead of blowing things up working on developing your country and learning new things. Civilized modern people do not harm others if those others are not harming them. It’s sad that Iraq had a great chance to become a productive member of the free world and ISIS is bent on destroying that.
