The Islamic and Legal Status of Tormented Archaeological Monuments in the Contemporary Perspective
معذب اقوام کے آثارکی شرعی حیثیت عصرِحاضر کے تناظر میں
Archeology deals with the common inheritance of human beings. Among those historical antiques, these are such records which remind us of those nations who were condemned due to their disobedience to Divine instructions. The purpose of preserving such sites as per Divine Scheme, was to make them lessons for the upcoming generations. More recently such trends have emerged where these sites have been made places of recreation. As a reaction to this trend, another approach within religious thought has emerged that instructs for complete elimination of such sites in order to discourage tourist activities at such places. This article takes a moderate path and tries to highlight the real teachings of Islam about such sites.
