FSA Terrorists destroy the shrine of Hujr ibn Adi , a companion of the prohet, near Damascus

The grave of the great companion of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), Hijr ibn Adi, in Adra, a small town north of Damascus, has been destroyed by Salafist groups and his body dug up and taken.

Hijr ibn Adi and his son were killed in 660 CE by Muawiya ibn Abu Sufyan, due to his firm loyalty to Imam Ali (as).
