On the destruction of Makkah in Last days and the preservation of Madina

It was the night of Hajj
When this doubt emerged…

Sacrifice upon sacrifice was his pleasure
The Sage of Babylon had no moment for leisure

The Friend of Lord built it
And his son helped to raise it
He then called to the world
And Lord made one and all heard.

Millions circumambulate it
Countless in prayers sanctify it

Quenching the faith-thirsty
Inspiring the disheartened

Yet, destined is its destruction
A sign before the Resurrection…

How sad a truth
How bitter a justice?

‘Will you be not in pain
To see your effort go in vain?

Came the reply-

“Every act is born by the decree of my Lord
Justice and Truth are from HIS Command

Even as HE let His House be destroyed
Swore He to have His Beloved’s preserved

Neither Tyrants nor Imposters can dare
To stain His Beloved’s House even by a scar”

The above poem could be enjoyed better in the context of these hadiths.

* “Faith will withdraw to Madinah like the snake withdraws to its den.”

* “None plots against the people of Madinah but that he will be dissolved (destroyed) like the salt is dissolved in water.”

* “The terror caused by Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal will not enter Madinah and at that time Madinah will have seven gates and there will be two angels at each gate guarding them.”
