Four Killed At Prophet’s Mosque Medina in Suicide Attack
It is sad news for all the Haj pilgrims. There is sign that terror presence is, in and around the Islam’s Holiest sites. Four security officers have been killed and five others wounded in a suicide attack at Prophet’s Mosque in the city of Medina. It was the third attack to hit the kingdom on Monday. Around the same time as the Medina blast, two other explosions struck near a mosque in the eastern city of Qatif on the Gulf coast.
Photos of Medina posted on social media showed smoke billowing from a fire outside the mosque where Prophet Muhammad is buried. The blasts took place just few moments before sunset prayers when people were breaking their fast inside the mosque.
The mosque, which is also known as Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, is visited by pilgrims from around the world during the final days of the fasting month of Ramadan.
The mosque is considered to be Islam’s second holiest site after the Sacred Mosque, or Masjid-al-Haram, which surrounds the Kaaba in the city of Mecca. Muslims around the world expressed their outrage after the attack in Medina.
Its high time , if Muslims stop blaming each other in the name of religion and stand united , they can fight terrorism , which has become blot on Muslim religion.
