Fresh Dead Bodies of 2 Companions of Prophet Muhammad in Iraq

There are doubts among Muslims whether this incident is 100% true or false, but I am presenting to you the incident along with evidences that I collected during my investigation and research regarding this incident by the Mercy of Allah.

Accept them if your heart desires, and if your heart does not desire, then feel free to deny them, but this is a hundred percent irrefutable fact that dead bodies of all good Muslims remain fresh and safe in their graves, by the Command of Allah.

The Most Shared Incident on the Internet

In 1932 A.D (or 1929 by some reports) the ruling King of Iraq Shah Faisal dreamt that he was being addressed by Hazrat Hudhaifa al-Yamani (ra), who said:

"O King! Transfer Jabir ibn Abdullah and me from the bank of river Tigris and bury us at some safe place because my grave is already water-logged, (full of water) while Jabir ibn Abdullah's grave is slowly getting water-logged."

This dream was repeated again the next night but King Faisal did not pay attention to it on account of his pre-occupation with state affairs. On the third night Hazrat Hudhaifa al-Yamani (ra) was seen in the dream by the grand Mufti of Iraq. Hazrat Hudhaifa al-Yamani (ra) said to grand Mufti: 'I have been directing king since two nights to transfer our bodies but he has not paid any heed. Tell him emphatically to arrange for the transfer of our graves!'

King Faisal, his Prime Minister and Grand Mufti decided to carry out this work after discussing this matter. It was decided that Grand Mufti should issue a fatwa (religious ruling) on this matter and the Prime Minister will issue statement to the press, so that public may know about this great event. It was declared that on 10th Zulhijjah after noon prayers the graves shall be opened and the holy bodies shall be transferred to another place.

As it was Hajj season, pilgrims had gathered in Makkah. They requested King Faisal to postpone the event for a few days so that they all could attend the event after performing the Hajj. Hence, the King postponed this event to 20th Zulhijjah.

After noon prayers, on 20th Zulhijjah 1351 A.H. a large number of Muslims and non-Muslims gathered in Baghdad, and the city was heavily crowded. First when the grave of Hazrat Hudhaifa al-Yamani (ra) was opened water was fond inside. The body was lifted with a crane in such a way that it safely came on a stretcher. Then the stretcher was lifted by the King, the Grand Mufti, the Prime Minister and Prince Farooq of Egypt and brought to a glass coffin box made especially to keep the holy bodies. The body of Hazrat Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari (ra) was also transferred to the glass box in the same scrupulous manner.

The most marvelous spectacle was now seen by the huge crowd that had gathered to witness this great event. Both the holy bodies of these true companions (Sahabah) of Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) were fresh and intact while their open eyes issued forth such divine light that the spectator's eyes were dazzled. Furthermore, their coffin, clothes were also intact and at first glance, it appeared as if these heroes of Islam were alive. The two bodies were then taken away and buried afresh near the grave of another great hero of Islam, Hazrat Salman-e-Farsi (ra), in Salman Park which is 30 miles from Baghdad. This miracle amazed the scientists, philosophers and doctors. They were all bewildered and spellbound to witness this great miracle.

A German physiologist who had been showing a lot of interest in this was so impressed by the conditions of the bodies, which were buried for more than a thousand years, that he immediately came to the Grand Mufti, held up his hands and said, 'What more evidence can there be in support of Islam. I embrace Islam so teach me about it!'. Thus before thousands of people this German doctor became a Muslim. His example was followed by many Christians and Jews and for a long time it continued in Baghdad and a large number of people became Muslims as a result of this miracle.

Now let us all sit-back and think over this event and derive a lesson from this miracle. Pondering over such events is potent food for the mind and serves as an eye-opener to humanity.

Evidences Related to this Incident

Public Photo: Companions of Prophet Muhammadﷺ

Regarding this picture, it is claimed that it has the bodies of the two companions of Prophet Muhammadﷺ, their location is indicated through the arrows. Now how much truth there is in this matter, only Allah knows.

Daily Jung: Newspaper of Pakistan

During my research I found that the news of this incident was published in the Daily Jang Pakistan (newspaper) on 7th June 1970 but I could not find old newspaper through the internet. If you belong to Daily Jang or know someone then you can further investigate more about this matter.

Khairullah Hadeesi: Director of Public Relations, Iraq

Pakistan's famous and well-known Mufti Taqi Usmani traveled to Iraq, where he heard this incident from the director of public relations there, Khairullah Hadeesi, and wrote it in his book Jahan-e-Deedah on page no 55.

Shah Sahab: Eyewitness Who Kissed Forhead of Companion

On October 17, 2013, Suhail Ahmad Shah Jeelani from Dera Ismail Khan telephoned me and told that he had personally met the eyewitness of this incident, "Shah Sahib" (more than 100 years old) who belongs to Sialkot city of Pakistan. 

According to the report, Shah Sahab was in Iraq at the time of this incident and he had kissed on the forehead of the fresh dead body of one companion of last Prophet Muhammadﷺ. 

I did record the important part of our conversion about that event so you can listen yourself what he told me about this event regarding Shah Sahab, it is in Urdu language.

Daily Ummat: Newspaper of Pakistan

The Daily Ummat Pakistan (newspaper) also published about this event on Sep 19, 2013.

Ilm Seeker: The Person with Original Video Footage

During the research, I met a seventy-year-old man through the Internet. His nickname was "Ilm Seeker", which means "Seeker of Knowledge".

He told me that there are very few people in the world who have the original rare video footage of the incident of the companions of last Prophet Muhammadﷺ and he is one of them.

As soon as I heard this, I wanted to get the video footage and I insisted to him for the video and told him how important this video is as evidence for proving the truth of Islam in front of non-Muslims.

He told me that he will take permission from his spiritual master before deciding on this, but after that he ended communication with me and did not respond to any more of my messages.

Whether what they told me was true or false, only Allah knows best.


Alhamdulillah, in the light of the available evidences regarding this incident and my personal experiences during the research and investigation, I am 100% sure that this incident is true by the grace of Allah. However, we must remember that it is a fact that this event is about a century old now so majority of eyewitnesses would have died.

I have not mentioned more people I came across during my research because I could not get their contact details or answers from them. However, it is a fact that even today, thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims around the world have seen with their own eyes the fresh dead bodies of the true and righteous Muslim followers of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, and you can watch the evidences regarding the fresh dead bodies on YouTube channel.

People who use their intellect can easily understand that indeed Allah can do whatever He wills and He is the creator and controller of the universe, so He changed the laws of physics science.

Indeed, Allah is the true God of this universe, and He can keep whomever He wills safe and fresh in his grave, or on the ground, or in the sea, or in the air, or among insects or within wild beasts and birds, without the use of chemicals and embalming on their dead bodies but He does this only with the dead bodies of righteous Muslims, and let the dead bodies of infidels and hypocrites to rot because Allah is angry with them.

Do You Have Any Evidence?

If you are an eyewitness or know someone who is an eyewitness of this event then you can contact for an interview or if you have any evidence available about this event then feel free to inform us through contact page, thankyou!
