The Conquest of Hind Prior to the Day of Judgement

At-Tuwaijiri’s Ithaf al-Jama’a, Vol. 1, pp. 365-366.

The latest conflict in pakistan/afghanistan between the mujahideen and the tyrants brings to mind the ahadeeth regarding the conquest of India prior to the day of Judgment.

Thawban – may Allah be pleased with him – that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Two groups of my umma Allah has protected from the hellfire: a group that will conquer India and a group that will be with ‘Isa b. Maryam – ‘alaihimas- salat was-salam.” Reported Ahmad, an-Nisa’i, and at-Tabarani.

Na’im b. Hammad in al-Fitan reports that Abu Huraira – may Allah be pleased with him – said that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) mentioned India and said, “A group of you will conquer India, Allah will open for them [India] until they come with its kings chained – Allah having forgiven their sins – when they return back [from India], they will find Ibn Maryam in Syria.”

While Abu Huraira said, “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) promised us the conquest of India. If I was to come across that I will spend my soul and wealth. If I am killed then I am among the best of martyrs. And if I return then I am Abu Huraira the freed.” Reported by Ahmad, an-Nisa’i, and al-Hakim.

In another narration reported by Ahmad, Abu Huraira says, “I was told by my khalil, the truthful and believed in, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) that there will be in this umma an expedition sent to Sind and Hind (India) … .” The rest of the narration is the same but it has the following addition, “… then I will be released from the Hellfire.” At-Tuwaijri remarks this addition explains what is meant by “the freed” above.

Historical background:

Ibn Kathir remarks in al-Bidaya wa n-Nihaya, “The Muslims invaded India during the days of Mu’awiya in the year 44 A.H and [great] events transpired then. And [likewise] the mighty and magnificent King Mahmud b. Subuktikin the ruler of Ghazna invaded the lands of India at the turn of the fifth century. He entered India and killed, took captive, [and] enslaved [many]. He took [muc] booty. He entered as-Sumanat (*) and destroyed the great al-Budda which they worship and he stripped it of its jewlery. He then returned [to Ghazna] safe, [Divinely-]aided, and victorious.”

* as-Sumanat is a costal city where India’s scholars, monks, and the idol al-Budda are found.

At-Tuwaijiri remarks that Ibn al-Athir has detailed the campaigns of Mahmud b. Subuktikin in his book al-Kamil fi t-Tarikh.

    Analyzing the above post, it is evident that there has been invasions against India in the past by the Muslims and who might be following the same Ahadith and would be trying to fulfill prophecies. But this raises a question, if India has been conquered before by the Muslims, are those prophecies not fulfilled?

    • Ghazwa-Tul-Hind Says:

      I think not. There is mentioned that ISA-IBAN-E-MARYAM PBUH will be present at the time and he has to arrive yet. So these Ahadith are about the time that is still to come.

  2. I read your article and well don’t agree with your Analysis.India survived 1400 years of islamic and british rule.Swami Vivkanada and Swami Ramakrisha were the reincarnation of lord Ram and Lord Krishna.They did not pridict the destruction of india ever.They have only spoken of india’s rise.many other saints have pridicted the same.Indian horoscope also shows the same.There will be problems which indian horoscope shows and K N Rao pridicted about the trumoil in india during the Bombay attack.Indian astrology is quite competent to show what lies ahead and its also has a dark warning for the coming years.

    • Deepak Singh,

      With reference to an undisputed historical record, the War of Khyber was fought between Muslims and Jews.

      In this war, the Astrologistes were certain that Khyber would not be conquered and it would stay for nearly 250 Years minimum. Forces of God do not operate under Astrology. If you are a sear, some visionary pandat or have developed the spiritual eye that Baba Guru-najak had, you could see whats going to happen for sure.

      You have freedom to accept or reject my opinion, but I would request you to spend few hours and watch the Predictios of Nemat Ullah Shah Wali who predicted mostly about South Asian Region. Nearly 80% of his predictions have been true with exact date, time and the final outcome. Please spare some time and have a look at them.

      The Original Book of Nemat Uallah Shah Wali:

      The Translated Version of Nemat Ullah Shah Wali:

      Above evidences are fairly strong to make anybody believe that whats fate of India in the future. And that will be happening (if I am not forgetting) before 2026, between two Eids (The Muslim Festivals) which is a period of 70 Days. The war is said to last for a period of 6 Months or 6 Years. It will be devastating for even Pakistan but end result is Victory of Pakistan or Muslims if you want to call it this way.

      There are Ahadith by Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH and there are 4 of such Ahadith of ghawatul-hind that clearly say whats going to happen with India. He has also mentioned that Isa-Iban-e-Maryam (Gesus PBUH) will be there by that time.

  3. […] Originally Posted by indianrabbit I remember only quote in India. "Nage is Bhagwan bhi darta hai" God fears someone who has nothing to lose. I think, it fits perfect in this context. Pakistan has nothing to lose and India too much and therefore India does not want war simple as that, we want to make progress hence war is not an option. Lets put it the other way around, India has nothing to gain out of a war and Pakistanis have a lot. Recall Ghazwatulhind […]

  4. That means that India would be within its right to nip this threat in the bud.

    India would do well to make sure no Islamic threat arises on its borders. Will Durant called the Mohammedan conquest of India as the bloodiest ever, a defeat of civilization at the hands of barbarity.

    We need to ensure our powder is dry this time. No two grains of sand in Arabia should be allowed to be left together if India is threatened again by the same barbarians. Just make a glass bowl of everything those invaders cherish.

  5. I do hope it never comes to that. We need to be ready for any eventuality.

    The history is just too stark!

      Hello Vinod,

      Sure, India is spending more money on its defense than it actually can. However money is not the only defense that India needs. India need to be soft towards neighbors and at the same time, very strong inside to face any challenge. Public statements made by Military Generals to settle two countries at the same time would not help, rather push India further towards sentiments of war. It is also needed to understand that India is not facing threat from Muslim clan of society alone, rising confrontation with China and silent spread of Naxals is equally deadly.

      • Our internal threats/challenges are surely there and are being dealt with. They are not existential threats at all.

        General Deepak’s comment, while I see it as a little provocative, was not about India pushing for war, rather than being ready for it if it is imposed.

        China is a challenge as well as a great opportunity. I think we will continue to increase trade/co-operation with them in areas of mutual interest and compete in other areas. I don’t see a major conflict with them unless we neglect our defense so bad that they think they will lose little.

  6. Tt the time of prophet p.b.u.h. KP & balochistan were in khorasan and punjab & sindh were in hind. so the war is continuing between them.
