The following Shi’i narration is one of thousands that most Shi’ites are not aware of due to their “scholars” either hiding it, watering it down or applying other apologetic excuses in order to brush the true monotheistic and Prophetic heritage of the Ahl Al-Bayt under the carpet whilst upholding all the kufr and shirk narrations (fabrications) attributed to the Ahl Al-Bayt.

From Abu Abdillah (Al-Sadiq): “The Chief of the Believers (i.e. Ali ibn Abi Talib) said: “The Messenger of Allah sent me with the mission to destroy every [structure that has been erected over a] grave and erase every image.”
Similar narrations can be found in the books of the Ahl Al-Sunnah:
It was narrated that Abu’l-Hayaj al-Asadi said: ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib said to me: “Shall I not send you on the same mission as the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sent me? Do not leave any statue without erasing it, and do not leave any raised grave without leveling/razing it to the ground.” (According to one report: and do not leave any picture without erasing it). (narrated by Muslim, 969).
Ibn al-Qayyim said: Tamathil is the plural of Timthal (statue), which refers to a representative image.
Imam Al-Shawkani (Ex-Zaydi Shia scholar from Yemen who became Sunni) said: The words “do not leave any raised grave without leveling it” means that the Sunnah is that a grave should not be made very high, and there should be no differentiation between those who were virtuous and those who were not virtuous.
As we can see, the Ahl Al-Bayt before anyone else, including ‘Ali himself during his own Caliphate. used to sent people with the mission to erase every image (what would ‘Ali do if he sees the images Shi’ites make in his name?) destroy/level graves and erected structures (with Prophet’s grave being a known exception as he was buried in his house that already had a structure above it), this must make them the first “Wahhabis” on earth. No doubt the Ahl Al-Bayt would be pleased with the leveling of their graves, just like it has been beautifully done in Madinah, in the Baqi’ cemetry:
