Shaikh al-Amree No More

Madina has lost one of its son today at 1.00 PM IST, Shaikh al-Amree. He was 138 years of Age and was one of the most respected Shia of Saudi Arabia. Every Shia Haji and Mo'tamar who visited Madina would not forget to visit him.
It is famous that he was one of the miracles of Imam-e-Zamana (a.s.). The governer of Madina had made him drop by the security in the desert from the helicopter, but, he returned home the next day without any scratch. After that the rulers never dared to touch him.
His garden in al-awaali locality of Madina is very famous for hospitality. A beautiful masjid is this garden with dates trees and flowing water. It is huge garden. It is famous as "Mazra" of Shaikh Amree. Daily lunch is hosted for the zaereen and is called, "Dastarkhwaan of Imam Hasan (a.s.)" by the Iranians. Shaikh Amree is already in the "jawaar" of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.). May Allah increase manifold the status of Shaikh in the next world. The Haaji will miss him in Madina. Click the below slide show

Dear Brother,

Please note that it is wrong that Shaikh Amri was drop to the desert. I have personally met him and his son Shaikh Kazim and talked about it. He denied any such incident but he has narrated another incident that Shaikh e Amri saw in dream to Imam e Hadi (AS) then next day to Imam Ameerul Momineen (AS) and third to Imam e Zaman (AS)and released from jail.

Detail I will write later.

Thanks for the information. His son Shaikh Kazim might have told you. The helicopter incident is very famous among Madina Shiites. Allah knows best.

Dear Razi,

Story of Helicopter is forged by some people. Shaikh Kazim Amri, himself told that these are all fabrications.

It is great unfortunate that even some of the zakerin also narate story of helicopter.

None of incident is to be believed until a document is produced on it.
