He said he thought he could eventually return home after the terrorists were deported from Damascus, but Syrian authorities said he had prevented his return by mislabeling his residence as a wrongdoing.
In May, the regime army created the Daesh group in a mass of oil near the capital Tadamun south of the capital with a campaign of raids and shelling.
For the first time in six years, government control over the entire region has been restored, and this has really brought about the hope of a reunion.
But Abu Mohammed and others at Tadamun complain, and the authorities think that many homes are inadequate and prevent the owner from returning before a controversial redevelopment plan.
Within five months of Daesh being deported, the regime barriers now block access to all terrorist bases under tremendous security, and the AFP team could not enter.
At the last checkpoint, the debris blocked the road. The floor of the nearby building was pancake on top of the other, and a hole was blown from the minaret of one temple.
Abu Mohammed said the state inspectors could see his house before arrival and claimed he was still alive despite the official verdict.
"There was no bullet hole, it was just plundered," he used alias to avoid retaliation. "It is too unfair for the citizens who have been waiting for years and have always been standing by the country." Another returnee, Othman Al-Ayssami (55), resented. "Why can not thousands of other people go home?" The lawyer asked. "After the military operation, I went into a neighborhood where I expected huge damage," he said. But in a four-story house, "the window only broke." Ayyssami did not specify that his residence was not considered inappropriate.
The town of Tadamun has been in the gray area for a long time.
This former orchard had been filled since the late 1960s by people who had fled from the Golan Heights occupied by Israel or flooded with Damascus in the countryside, and there is often no official permit to build it.
But today's fate seems particularly uncertain since the local authorities announced last month that it will be affected by controversial development laws.
This measure, known as Decree 10, allows the government to compensate owners for new development projects and seize private property for zoning development.
Once their land is selected, the owner must inevitably lose their property and apply for the stock to be exchanged.
Although they have not started construction in Tadamun for many years, officials have already been dispatched to investigate the house.
The provincial committee was responsible for assessing and assessing the suitability of approximately 25,000 residential establishments for human habitation.
Even if their home is declared as standard, the resident can not go back until further notice.
Community members had several meetings with the committee when they realized that a large number of houses marked as ineligible were not actually damaged in combat. To solve their frustrations, they created a Facebook page called Tadamun Exiles. "It's the right to go home," a displaced person wrote.
The committee divided neighbors into three sectors, the last three covering the once controlled area.
Faisal Srour, chairman of the executive committee, said in an interview with AFP that inspectors in the first two areas "have visited 10,000 houses so far, of which 2,500 are suitable for living and 1,000 are not at home."
The rest are still in categorization, he said, adding that the troops in the former terrorist division are likely to be judged inappropriate.
"There was a fight there," he said.
Tadamun was flooded by rebel forces in 2012, some of which fell to Daesh's terrorists three years later.
For the past few years, most residents have forced to leave their homes, and now there are 65,000 inhabitants, compared to 250,000 before the outbreak of the 2011 war.
Houses that are declared suitable for housing are given a serial number, sealed with red wax, and management claims to be easily recoverable by the owner.
Residents can return home normally after proving ownership, "Mayor Aad Iskandar told AFP in an interview with President Bashar Assad's military uniform and sunglasses portrait.
But since Tadamun is an informal neighbor, only 10% of homes have officially registered property certificates, which is not lost during the war.
Most people in the area only have semi-official documents showing their residence.
For those who manage to get back, the grace is only temporarily visible.
After all, the reconstruction that begins four to five years ago must see the entire region destroyed to the ground.
Also, only one-tenth of the population in the suburbs can not submit property certificates to gain a stake in the reconstruction project.
But Srour, chairman of the test, said people who can not prove ownership (more than 90% of residents) will not be homeless.
"We will not forsake people on the streets, but we will provide compensation or alternative housing," he said.
