Mecca is the most sacred city for two billion Muslims in the world. This blessed city is the most beloved land in the sight of Almighty God as Prophet Abraham prayed for its prosperity, blessings and peace and the last Prophet was born in this city and commenced his Prophethood.
Almighty God has called Mecca by five names in the Quran: Mecca, Bakkah, Al-Balad, Al-Qaryah and Ummul-Qura.
Describing the significance of the city Almighty God says ‘Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Mecca – blessed and guidance for the worlds. (Al-Imran, 3:96).
When the Muslims conquered Mecca, Prophet said, “Allah had made this city sacred the day He created the heavens and the earth and it’s sanctity shall remain until the Day of Qiyamah (Day of Judgement).
Once the Prophet sitting on his camel in the Al-Hazwarah market, addressed Mecca saying, “By Allah, you are the best land of Allah, the most beloved land of Allah . Had I not been driven out of you, I would not have left you.” [Zaadul Ma’aad].
On Saturday, Muslim rulers from around the world congregated at this sacred city only to hatch conspiracies to start a blood- bath under the patronage of non-other than the self-declared custodian of two grand mosques King Salman of Saudi Arabia. They are beating the drum of war against a Muslim country- Iran. This is because their Zionist and American masters want to wage a war against Iran only to protect their own interests and safe-guard the Zionist Israel.
Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit could have been organized at any city of Saudi Arabia or its capital city Riyadh, but the rulers of Saudi Kingdom deliberately wanted to misguide the whole Muslim world by holding such meeting during Holy month of Ramadhan in Holy city of Makkah and wanted send a message that the blessings of Almighty are with them and they are on a sacred mission to protect the sanctity of the land from an evil force called ‘Iran’.
Infact , Saudi rulers are trying to exploit the holy month of Ramadhan and thet heholy place of Makkah for their pretty interests .
According to media reports, addressing the leaders from OIC countries on Saturday, King Salman opened the summit saying the world must fight the sources and funding of terrorism around the world.
He blamed Iranian-backed terrorist militias of being behind a subsequent drone attack on a Saudi oil pipeline.
King Salman warned that “terrorist” attacks in the Gulf region could imperil global oil supplies, as he sought to galvanise support among Islamic countries against arch-rival Iran.
He further said: “Iran’s criminal acts… require that all of us work seriously to preserve the security and achievements of GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council).”
King Salman called on the international community to thwart Iran’s behaviors and for “using all means to stop the Iranian regime from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, harboring global and regional terrorist entities and threatening international waterways.”
The is the third and final Tehran-focused summit in the holy city of Makkah , marked by the notable absence of Iran and Turkey’s leaders.
Notably the findings of a five-nation inquiry into what happened have yet to be released.
However Tehran has strongly denied involvement in any of the attacks.
In fact Saudi rulers have got into the habit of spitting venom against Iran but never had any problem with Zionist Israel.They always express concern over Iran’s nuclear bomb, but never utter a single word against Israel’s nuclear capabilities.
The Makkah Summit can be seen in the backdrop of US President Donald Trump’s recent decision who reimposed sanctions against Iran after Washington unilaterally pulled out of a multilateral 2015 nuclear accord signed with the Islamic republic. Following that US sent two warships into Persian Gulf.
The Makkah Summit also condemned US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December 2017, which had transferred the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May 2018. But the entire world know that such condemnation, after two years are nothing more than empty words and meant to appease and pacify Muslim world and win their sympathy.
The Saudi King also told leaders of the IOC countries gathered at the summit that “The Palestinian cause is the cornerstone of the works of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and is the focus of our attention until the brotherly Palestinian people get all their legitimate rights.” But such words of sympathy had been coming out from the mouth of Saudi rulers for more than half century.
In fact Makkah Summit was organized to justify any expected American aggression against Iran in near future and send a clear message that Saudi Arabia in case of war will be standing with its ‘natural ally’ and ‘time tested’ friend ‘America’.
The birth of Saudi Arabia is itself an outcome of a conspiracy that was hatched against Ottoman Empire and hatching conspiracy against Muslim nations is in its DNA. This extremist state always stood with Zionist Israel and US. Two Gulf Wars and killing and displacement of more than two million innocent people in Iraq, Egypt, Yemen, and Syria is part of a larger conspiracy to depopulate Arabian Peninsula so that Kingdom’s allies become the sole owner of natural resources of Middle East. Unfortunately Saudi rulers are playing in the hands of their Western masters.
