Answer to “Myth of Ghazwatulhind”

By: Salman Ali

Original Article “Myth of GhazwatulHind”
By: Ale Natiq
Original Article URL: The myth of Ghazwa-tul-Hind

Purposes of this article is to analyze various aspects of Ghazwatulhind and learn through healthy discussion. Howerver I will try to give references and counter-arguments wherever necessary.

Religion has quite frequently been used as an excuse for military motives. Talking specifically about Islam, hadees has been used as a tool to invent excuses for political motivations and military interventions/attacks as and when required .

It is a fact and unfortunate one that Islam along with other religions of the world has a history of being misused and this is one of the unfortunate realities we are living with today.

There has been enormous hue and cry over Ghazwa-tul-Hind for years. This was probably first used by self-styled Jihadi activists in Pakistan for getting public support in Pakistan and raising funds to be used in their attacks in Kashmir with the aim of conquering India and creating what they call dar-ul-Islam. It is very interesting to note that neither Arabs nor the Mujahideen of Afghanistan made use of these ahadees to wage a war against India. Pakistan Army, ISI and the local Jihadis have a monopoly over Ghazwa-tul-Hind for now, although they don’t talk specifically about Green Pakistani Jihadis waging the war.

If Ghazwatulhind and its Ahadees are discovered/produced recently, it will be very easy to nullify their credibility. If a Hadees was authentic, that must have been known to the Muslims before ISI and Jihadis started using it. Is there any historical reference of Ahadees of Ghazwatulhind in the past? Lets explore.

Hafiz Ibn Kathir [Author of Tafseer Ibn Kathir] in his book “Al Bidaya Wan Nihaya” [From the Beginning to End]’s last Volume “Al Nihaya Wal Bidaya” had discussed this Hadith of Ghazwa-e-Hind and in total had given names of multiple Islami military campaigns on Hind. The commentary by Ibn-e-Kathir [Mohaddis] on that “Ghazwa-e-Hind” Hadith is worth reading and he interpreted that Hadith [with Historical References and Health of the Narrators’ Chain] and clearly written that all those Islamic armies who launched expedition on Hind were Jihad and he included Mohammad Bin Qasim and Mahmood Bin Subugtagin [Mehmood Ghaznavi] and many other Turk Kings. He included China and Central Asia while interpreting these Hadiths. [Reference: Authenticity of Hadiths anc Narrators get Al Taqreeb by Ibn Hajar Asqalani.

Learning aspect: Hafiz Ibn Kathir was born in 1302 AD, some 709 years ago and is author of one of the most respected Tafseer-e-Quraan existing to-date. [Reference of Hafiz Ibn Kathir’s age.] [Reference of Tafseer-Ibn-Kathir]. Hafiz Ibn Kathir has mentioned several expeditions against India that were done because of Ahadith of GhazwatuHind. So Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind were known to Muslims tens of centuries before Pakistan or ISI existed.

Islamists and right-wing-military-apologists have fallen to the propaganda of Pakistan Army and ISI when they propagate waging a war against the neighboring country India, finding excuses for ding so through hadees. Zaid Hamid, the mouth-piece of ISI and Pakistan Army has been making use of Ghazwa-tul-Hind (6 hadees in total), promoting hatred against Hindus and war hysteria. These hadees are available here.

This paragraph is more of a political opinion and targets a personality. Whether these allegations are true or not, they do not deal with the credibility of Ahadith so let’s stay focused to the topic.

Are they authentic ?

The writer of the original article has given a very good set of questions that challenge the authenticity of these Ahadith. And if answer of these questions goes against the Ahadith, we can safely declare Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind as false or fabricated. So let’s explore them one by one.

Just a brief look at these will make it clear that none of these five ahadees are found in Sihah-e-Sitta. Two of these appear to be in the collections of ahadees by Imam Nisai but not in Sunan an-Nisai al Sughra, the book considered to be among the Sihah-e-Sitta, the six books considered most reliable by main-stream Muslims.

Factually wrong: Imam Nisai has narrated this Hadees in both of his books; ‘As Sunan al Sughra (also known as Al Mujtaba) as well as in ‘As Sunan Al Kubra. This is exactly the same book in which writer suggests it does not exist but the fact is that it is there in the same book. Would you like to see that?

Learning Aspect: Please browse Sunan-Nasai available online or in any public/Islamic library. Sunan-Nasai is available at Scribed.com, Ekabakti.com (you can also download that from the links given at the end of this article) and there will be 1000s of online reading resources which you can try. I encourage you to visit any nearest library and find Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind yourself. Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind exist at:

  • Sunan-Nasai (Al Sughra/ Al Mujtaba) Vol. 3/6
    • Chapter No. 26 – KitabulJihad
      • Sub Chapter No. 41 –  Ghazwatulhind
        • Hadith No. 3173 (By Hazrat Abu Hurraira)
        • Hadith No. 3174 (By Hazrat Abu Hurraira)
        • Hadith No. 3175 (By Hazrat Soban)

Note: There are two Hadith narrated by Abu Hurraira and one by Hazrat Soban. Somtimes two Ahadith of Abu Hurraira are considered as one Hadith and therefore three Ahadith of Sunan-Nasai are sometimes described as two Ahadith.

The others are not even found in the reliable collections of respected muhadiseen.

Factually Wrong: Immam Nasai is one of the most credible and respectable Mohadis. To establish his credibility further, Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal, (Sheikh Ul Islam) narrated this Hadees in ‘Masnad’. And Immam Ibn-e-Kaseer (the author of Tafseer ibn-e-Khatir) mentions this Hadees with his reference in his book ‘Al-Badaya Wa Nahaya’.

Also it is important to note that in the list of books called Sahi Sita (6 credible books of Hadith), Sunan-Nasai  is accepted third most credible book after Sahi Bukhari and Sahi Muslim.

Note that Imam Nisai died in 915. The years of death of other respected muhadiseen to whom Sihah-e-Sitta are attributed to: Imam Bukhari in 870, Imam Muslim in 875, Abu Daud in 888, al-Tirmizi in 892,Imam Malik in 796, Ibn Maja in 886. All of them died before Imam Nisai. It does not make much sense that we have these ahadees being narrated through Imam Nisai but not through any of the other respected muhadiseen who lived before him.

Learning Aspect: There are thousands of Ahadith which are narrated by Immam Nasai and not all of them exist in Sahi Bukhari or Sahi Mulims or other books of Ahadith. Also Sahi Bukhari has narrated hundreds of Ahadith which are not listed on other books. To judge the credibility of a Hadith, this is not a criteria to see if it exists in other books too but there are parameters and defined procedures to evaluate whether given Hadith is credible or not-credible. [Learn what makes a Hadith Sahi, Hasan or Zaeef]

They are narrated through a single chain. Reported only once through one companion of the Prophet.

Factually Wrong: Hadith has been quoted by multiple narrators with independent chain of references.

Learning Aspect: Ahadith mentioned in Sunan-Nasai Al Sughra quotes it with reference to “Hazrat Soban” and “Hazrat Abu Hurraira” independently. There are 3 unique and credible chain of narration for the 3 Ahadith mentioned in Sunan-Nasai.

It is also important to learn that there exist more than 14 “Ravis” who have quoted the same Hadith with “slight changes” but because of weaker chain of narrations, those Hadith are not given their due significance. Regarding Ahadith of Sunan-Nasai, there are more than 16 witnesses of one Hadith alone. So there aremultiple, independent and credible narrators who quote these Adhadith in various times all being independent of each other in various books.

Considering the reward for participating in this war and the importance of it, as these Ahadees tell, they should have been narrated by more companions of the Prophet and should have been there in more books of Ahadees.

First: Hadith of Ghazwatulhind are not “the” most important Hadith as it is about future events instead of belief or practices which constitute Fiqa (the Islamic Law).

Second: there are already multiple witnesses to the Hadith and Multiple and Independent Muhadiseen have narrated it.

Third: there are extremely important Ahadith which were narrated by Hazrat Ayesha Sadiqa and Hazrat Ans bin Malik alone as they were among few companions of Prophet Mohammad PBUH who stayed close to him at times when others were not. This has never been a pattern of the life of Prophet Mohammad PBUH that the most important Hadith would be told before many Sahaba (R) and least important ones would be told before one, two or few companions.

It is very important to note that none of these are found in any of the collections of ahadees which the Shia Muslims consider authentic. This raises the question if they were invented by the Ummayads/Abbasids considering their expansionist designs? This is also to be noted that Ummayads did reach Sindh, a part of Hind back then.

Learning Aspect: Shia Muslims do not rely on source of Ahadith outside Silsila of Ahle-e-Bait. That’s why Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind is not the only Hadith but there thousands of Ahadith in Sunni Muslim’s books but not in Shia Mulims’s books. For more learning: Wikipedia: Shia Muslims books of Ahadith.

One must also note the fact that we don’t have any history report telling us about the use of these ahadees in the past by Muslim rulers or conquerors, even those who did invade India or waged a war on it. If they were respected and authentic ahadees, we should have such history reports.

Factually Wrong: Muslims in the past made several military expeditions in the light of these Ahadith. The commentary by Ibn-e-Kathir (written around 1370 AD, some 700 years ago) on that “Ghazwa-e-Hind” Hadith is worth reading and he interpreted that Hadith and clearly written that all those Muslim rules who launched expedition on Hind were Jihad. He included Mohammad Bin Qasim and Mahmood Bin Subugtagin [Mehmood Ghaznavi] and many other Turk Kings as well.

After understanding various aspects about Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind, we can establish

  • Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind hasn’t been discovered recently and Muslims know them since the time of Holy Prophet PBUH.
  • Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind are Authentic and found in Sunan-Nasai Al Sughra, one of the 6 credible books of Ahadith.
  • These Ahadith have multiple narrators and Independent Silsila of Naration.
  • Muslims in the past knew about these Ahadith, referenced them and used them in their books.
  • There has been multiple expeditions against Hind by Muslims in the past on the basis of Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind.

In the “What if they are authentic ?” section, the writer has provided testaments of Ulema who believe Ahadees to be true. The only difference of opinion they have is that in their opinion, the Ahadith have came true already. If these Hadith were non-credible, the Ulema must have rejected them the first place, but rather they gave their opinion about the fulfillment and believed these Ahadith have already came true.

The Ulema who has given this verdict include:

  • Maulana Abdul Hamid Numani, a leading figure of the Jamiat ul-Ulema-i Hind.
  • Mufti Sajid Qasmi, who teaches at the Dar ul-Uloom Deoband.

Are these Ahadith fulfilled already?

Now let’s look at all the Ahadith of GhazwatulHind once again and try to understand if they have been fulfilled already.

In addition to 2 Ahadith of Sunan-Nasai, there exist 3 more Ahadith and one of them says

A King of Jerusalem (Bait-ul-Muqaddas) would make a troop move forward towards Hindustan. The Warriors destroy the land of Hind; would possess its treasures, then King would use those treasures for the décor of Jerusalem. That troop would bring the Indian kings in front of King(of Jerusalem). His Warriors by King’s order would conquer all the area between East & West. And would stay in Hindustan till the issue of Dajjal”.

Reference: Naeem bin Hammad(R) Ustaaz Imam Bukhari(R) narrate this Hadees in his book ‘Al-Fitan’. In it, the name of the quoter is not mentioned who related it to Hazrat Kaab(R.A.). But some Arabic words are being used, so this would be considered intersected. Those wordings are: (Almuhkamubnu Naafi-in Amman Haddasahu An Kaabin).

In the last line, the Hadith says “And would stay in Hindustan till the issue of Dajjal”. The Dajjal didn’t arrive after the expeditions on Hind in the past. That means the battle which is being referred to hasn’t happened yet.

Question: Does it mean Muslims would arrive in Hind as conquerors and thereafter would stay there centuries after centuries until Dajjal would appear? Is Hadith referring to past expeditions and settled Muslims of Hind of today?

Answer: According to Hadith, the Muslims will capture the Kind of Hind and present him before King of Jerusalem. In the past conquests over Hind, such incident did not happen. So that gives us an indication that past campaigns against Hind were not GhazwatulHind. Following Hadith makes this aspect further clear which says:

Some people of My Ummah will fight with Hindustan, Allah would grant them with success, even they would find the Indian kings being trapped in fetters. Allah would forgive those Warriors. When they would move towards Syria, then would find Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) over there

Reference: Naeem bin Hammad did narrate this Hadees in ‘Al Fitan’.

Thus Hadith is reffering to the warriors who would conquer Hind and when they would move back, they would find Isa Ibn-e-Maryam (A.S) in Syria. Thus same army would Join Hazrat Isa (R.A) who would conquer Hind and this event never took place in the past battles.

It is also important to note that the events of Dajjal, the Immam Mehdi and Prophet Isa (A.S) are connected and will happen within a short period of time, one after the other. There is good deal of detail available on this the subject at Shia.org (which discusses Shia and Sunni point of view) and a Sunni Fatwa which explains and connects these Ahadith without leaving a shadow of doubt whether the time of Ghazwatulhind was in the past or lies ahead of us. However if we only consider Ahadith of Sunan-Nasai, we wouldn’t be able to derive any conclusion.

Some contradictions and flaws found in the original article.

  • The writer gives wrong information, claiming Ahadith of GhazwatuHind do not exist in Sunan-Nasai al Sughra but later in the references of First Hadith, Mentions the references to Sunan-Nasai AlMujtaba which is the same Sunan-Nasai Al Sughra and Al Mujtaba is its second name. [Wiki Reference] It is sad to know that the writer does not know names of books of Ahadith.
  • The writer himself quotes one of the Hadith that has broken chain of command and insist the event has already taken place, while ignoring 2 similar Ahaidth (similar because they also lie outside Sunan-Nasai/Sunan-Nasai Al Sughra/Sunan-Nasai Al Mujtaba) that give answer to his own question.
  • After acknowledging the Ahaidth of Ghazwatulhind do not exist in the book accepted by Shia Alims, he has presented Fatwa by a Shia Alim who cannot testify in any case.
  • In the Section “Opinions of Scholars”, the given references who speak against are weak and not compareable to Jimeat-Ulema-i-Hind or Dar-ul-Aloom Deoband who are in the favor and who represent millions of Muslims.
  • People with no religious background are considered adequate to comment on religious aspect  while Alims and Mohadaseen are considered as non-credible.
  • Representing “Al Mawarid Institute”, the ‘Editor’ has mentioned only 3 out of 6 books of Ahadith who he searched for reference for “Ghazwatulhind”. His searched books include Sahi Bukhari, Sahi Muslim and Moutha etc. It is essential that whoever gives Fatwa must do so after making complete research and exploring every possible authentic resource. But the “alim” made search through ‘3 etc’ books. The ‘Editor’ did not mention name of Sunan Nasai altogether, thus an incomplete research cannot be accepted as basis of a Fatwa.
  • Reference Article written by Khalid Zaheer ( Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of University of Central Punjab) himself states that he has not made any study on the authenticity of these Ahadith.
  • The writer claims Ahadith of GhazwatulHind to be in the “Collection o f Immam Nasai” withuot giving name of that collection and negates their existance in Sunan Nasai. However Ahadith of GhazwatulHind exist in Sunan-Nasai (both collections of Ahadith known as Al Kubra and Al Sughra/ Al Mujtaba).
  • The over-all understanding of writer on the subject is weak and he has made claims without making research.

Since deen is a sensitive subject and not everybody who follows religion has capacity to make research, who-ever writes about religion must have adequate knowledge and research in hand before writing something. It is unfortunate that writer has been factually incorrect and used selective material to build his argument. I request all Muslims to make proper research before believing or accepting anything about religion.

May Allah help you find the right path and may all Muslims be on Sirat-e-Mustaqeem. Aamin.

Supportive Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind

Posted in Ghazwatulhind References, Uncategorized with tags , , on January 16, 2011 by ghazwatulhind
On August 8, 2010, By Waqar Akbar Cheema

Ghazwatul Hind (The War on India) is mentioned in Ahadith and recently it has got some extra-ordinary fame due to its mentioning by certain ideologues and the discussion that has sprung from it.

 

The context:

The very first thing we need to understand is that Holy Prophet (SAAW) has given the glad tidings of Islam dominating the whole world before the End of Times. Following narrations testify to it;

عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ زَوَى لِي الْأَرْضَ فَرَأَيْتُ مَشَارِقَهَا وَمَغَارِبَهَا وَإِنَّ أُمَّتِي سَيَبْلُغُ مُلْكُهَا مَا زُوِيَ لِي مِنْهَا

Thawban (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAAW) said: “Allah drew the ends of the world near one another for my sake. And I have seen its eastern and western ends. And the dominion of my Ummah would reach those ends which have been drawn near me …” (Sahih Muslim, Kitab Al-Fitan wa Ashrat As-Sa`ah, Hadith 5144)

الْمِقْدَادَ بْنَ الْأَسْوَدِ يَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ لَا يَبْقَى عَلَى ظَهْرِ الْأَرْضِ بَيْتُ مَدَرٍ وَلَا وَبَرٍ إِلَّا أَدْخَلَهُ اللَّهُ كَلِمَةَ الْإِسْلَامِ بِعِزِّ عَزِيزٍ أَوْ ذُلِّ ذَلِيلٍ إِمَّا يُعِزُّهُمْ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فَيَجْعَلُهُمْ مِنْ أَهْلِهَا أَوْ يُذِلُّهُمْ فَيَدِينُونَ لَهَا

Miqdad bin Aswad (RA) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) say; “There will not remain a single house, of clay or fur, which the word of Islam will not reach either by bringing honor to the one worthy of it or debasing the one worthy of it; that is to say Allah will give them respect by making them its [Islam’s] followers or He will humiliate them by making them subject to it.” (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 23865. Shuaib Arnaut classified it as Sahih)

Thus it is established in the light of Hadith that before the End Islam will one day prevail over the whole of the world and its authority will be established.

Ahadith on Ghazwatul Hind:

While the Ahadith like the above two tell us about Islam’s domination over the world in general, there are certain Ahadith that do tell us about the conquest and domination of some regions specifically. This is the case with India as well. Ahadith do inform us about the conquest of India and the virtues of the Muslims who will conquer it. One report says;

عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ مَوْلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ عِصَابَتَانِ مِنْ أُمَّتِي أَحْرَزَهُمْ اللَّهُ مِنْ النَّارِ عِصَابَةٌ تَغْزُو الْهِنْدَ وَعِصَابَةٌ تَكُونُ مَعَ عِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام

Thawban the freed-slave of the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) reported that the Prophet (SAAW) said; “Allah has saved two groups of my Ummah from the hell-fire, the group that fights in India and the group that fights along with Eisa ibn Maryam (A.S.).” (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 22449. Shuaib Arnaut classified it as Hasan. Albani classified it as Sahih in Sahih wa Daif Sunan Nasai, Hadith 3175 and Silsala Sahiha Hadith 1934)

Shaykh Muhammad Rafi Usmani says about this Hadith; “First Jihad on India took place in the first century after Hijrah under Muhammad bin Qasim in which participation of some Sahaba and many Tabi’in is related. After that many Jihads have been launched against India in different times so the question arises if the virtue of the Jihad mentioned applies to the first Jihad only or to all the Jihads that have happened in the past or will be launched in future? Pondering on the wording of the Hadith one learns that they are general and there is no reason to limit them to any specific Jihad, therefore all the Jihads that have been launched against the infidels of India in various times or that will be launched in future they will Insha’Allah receive the great virtue mentioned and Allah knows the best.” (‘Alamaat Qiyamat aur Nuzul Masih p.58 Note to Hadith 9 pub. Makteba Darul Uloom, Karachi 2008)

In another Hadith we are told;

عن أبي هريرة رضى الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وذكر لهند فقال (ليغزون الهند لكم جيش يفتح الله عليهم حتى يأتوا بملوكهم مغللين السلاسل يغفر الله ذنوبهم فينصرفون حين ينصرفون فيجدون ابن مريم بالشام).

It is narrated from Abu Huraira that he said: The Messenger of Allah (SAAW) made a mention of India and said, “An army from amongst you will attack India, Allah will grant them victory until they put their leaders in chains. Allah will forgive them (members of that army) their sins and when they will return they will find the Son of Mary in Syria.” (Na’im bin Hammad’s Kitabul Fitan pp.252-253. Also see Musnad Ishaq bin Rahwiya Hadith 477, Kanzul Ummal Hadith 39719. This Hadith is also included in Shaukh Anwar Shah Kashmiri’s Al-Tasrih bima Tawatur fi Nuzul Al-Masih Hadith 46 and Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah who did research on it and mentioned, wherever he could find, the weakness of its narrations did not criticize this narration and thus implicitly authenticated it)

Now this Hadith clearly relates the conquest of India with the arrival of Eisa (A.S.) showing the proximity of the two and clearly implying that it is an event yet to take place.

According to Ishaq bin Rahwiya’s narration, listening to this saying of the Holy Prophet (SAAW), Abu Huraira (RA) said;

فإن أنا أدركت تلك الغزوة بعت كل طارد وتالد لي وغزوتها فإذا فتح الله علينا انصرفنا فأنا أبو هريرة المحرر يقدم الشام فيلقى المسيح ابن مريم

“If I could join this Ghazwa I will sell all my belongings, new and old, and join it. Then when Allah will give us victory and we will return I will be the relieved one [from Fire] who will come to Syria and meet Masih (Eisa) ibn Maryam.”

These words in most explicit terms show that even Abu Huraira (RA) understood the conquest of India and arrival of Eisa (A.S.) to be events of the same time.

At the end of his Urdu translation and abridgment of Al-Tasrih bima Tawataur fi Nuzul Al-Masih Shaykh Rafi Usmani has given a list of the signs of the Doomsday arranged in the most probable chronological order wherein he, citing the above narrations, puts Ghazwatul Hind during the very times of the descent of Eisa (A.S.) See ‘Alamaat Qiyamat aur Nuzul Masih p.143 pub. Makteba Darul Uloom, Karachi, 2008

Indeed Allah knows the best!

Ghazwatulhind Authentic References – Sunan-Nasai Vol.2

Posted in Ghazwatulhind References, Prophecies of Islam with tags , , , , , , on January 16, 2011 by ghazwatulhind

In lots of discussions online and elsewhere, Ghazwatulhind is often described as a “myth” and its Ahadith are described as “fabricated”. Even some Muslims in India like to deny them in swing of Patriotism for their homeland. To answer this heinous propaganda against Islam and the Ahadith, I am attaching reference of Ghazwatulhind which is present in Sunan-Nasai, one of the 6 Authentic Books of Ahadith in Islam. Regarding Ghazwatulhind, there are two Ahadith available at the mentioned page number.

Sunan Nasai – Volumen No. 2,
Chapter “Kitab-ul-Jihad”
Sub-Chapter “Ghazwatulhind”
Page No.  63

Online Reference: scribd.com/doc/19877299/nisai2
Scroll to Page No. 337/580.

For quick review, I am placing a screen-shot of Ahadith and their translation but I encourage everybody to explore the original references and witness these Ahdith themselves.

Ghazwatulhind in the books of Islam - Sunan Nasai Vol. 2

Discussion on Ghazwatulind – Maniac Muslim

Posted in Prophecies of Islam with tags , , , , , on December 26, 2010 by ghazwatulhind

This is an excrept from one of the discussions taking place on Maniac Muslim.

Conqurer:

Ahadith in Islam are one of the most Authentic and undisputed religious assert after Quraan. There are 4 of such Ahadith which says that India will be taken over by Muslims near the end of times because there in Ahadith its mentioned that Isa Ibn-e-Maryam (Holy Prophet Isa) will be about to arrive that time. It hurts and is unbelievable when I think that this is the fate of India in the end. Leave Islamic Prophecies aside, Nostradamus has similar prophecies about Army of Three Lions that will be taken over after the involvement of Great Queen, interpreted as Russia.

Have a look at what Nostradamus stated:
http://www.scribd.co……us-predictions

Go to Page 96, Verse No. 16 which says

The deep entry made by the great Queen
will make the place powerful and incredible;
the army of three lions will be defeated
causing within a thing hideous and terrible.

I have been watching all the series of “Nemat Ullah Shah Wali” URL: http://www.scribd.co…ullah-Shah-Wali who has written more then 250 prophecies about Indian and Countries around. These prophecies are nearly 800 years old and 80% of them have been ful-filled with exact dates, exact name of the people, time. So even this book is studied and its prophecies are evaluated, one would believe that whatever this book is saying, has happened and whatever is left, will happen. Remaining 20% prophecies are mostly about India and Pakistan / Afghanistan and the foreign policy of the world towards this region. Nemat Ullah Shah Wali says that there will be two more wars (After the war of 1971) between India and Pakistan. One will be a regional kind of war that might have already happened in the form of “Karghil Conflict”, and the other will be the final battle that will result in the fall of India and Pakistan would take over Dehli. (He has particulrly mentioned that “Dehli will be Pak”). So thinking all that, I am sure that this is matter of fate and this is about to happen. Its written by God and no human could change the future.

I am only curious that how such a Large Nation like India would fall to a country that is not even 10th of its might. But when I look at differences of Hindus with Shoders (Hindus of lower cast or lower religious value) and Muslims (who are treated more or less the same way) of India, I feel this war will not be between two Countries as we see, this will be between two Nations and Muslims believe they are one Nation no matter in which country they are living, even if they are living in England, they consider themselves to be part of Muslim Ummah first. Remember the Afghan War of 80s in which Muslims from North, East, South and the West combined and fought against Russia and defeated it. I understand there were Western Forces fighting backing up all that but this could happen again in the Case of India if China, Iran and Afghanistan play their role. I believe something similar will happen to India and India will also have a severe kind of resistance from Muslims which is nearly 15% of Indian Population.

Hydro American:

Yes,no doubt hadiths play a major role in our deen, but not those that are weak or fabricated.  Unfortunately, man of these weak and fabricated hadith are still going around the subcontinent.
In order for a hadith to be accepted we have to know the chain of narration and its classification by famous muhaddiths like Bukhari, Muslim, etc.

Addixion:

Some one is going to get banned again. And I think only one person is going to get banned, because both accounts probably belong to the same person.

Not-you-again is the other side of the copy paste scholars which we saw few months back on MM. In the end all copy paste scholars are easy to recognize. They copy-paste and they strongly try to impose their views on others. Often misguided views too!

Conqueror:

Yes the 4 Ahadith that I am talking about are not listed in Sahi Bukhari or Sahi Muslim but in Sunan Nasai Vol. 2 . If you analyze Books of Ahadith, you will find there are more than 10 Ahadith that have discussed the War-Of-India (GhazwatulHind). Reason why only 4 of them are referenced is because these 4 are extremely credible otherwise one would say there exist 10+ Ahadith. Have a look at their references and what Ravis are saying about what Holy Prophet PBUH said. No Hadith is contrary to the other but is in support of it. One of the Ravi of these 4 Ahadith is Immam Abu Huraira who is the Ravi of thousands of Ahadith and one of the most credible person. There are 10s of other scholars of the time who confirm the credibility of these selected Ahadith. These Ahadith were written almost 1400 years ago when there was no regional bias or signs of India/Pakistan as such and chances that somebody might have “cooked” something to affect regional policies of today would be nothing but absurd. So what reason one might have to deny them? I would say yes, these Ahadith are credible and without any trace of doubt.

Pomak:

Provide a chain of narration or it is just you making it up.

LOL.. komon take a breath. No offense but dont expect some latest high-tech multi processing long battery time reference released in year 2009 would be there to support these Ahadith. When you are looking for references from religious scriptures, those will be copy-pasted! So bare with me on that.

Regarding References, You can find Ahadith of Ghazwatulhind in Sunan Nasai, Volume No. 2,  Chapter: Kitab-ul-Jihad and Sub-Chapter: Ghazwatulhind. Sunan-Nasai is one of the 6 Books of Ahadith and there is no doubt weather discussion of GhazwatulHind is there no not. Ghazwatulhind is Authentic as much as any other Hadith mentioned in the book of Ahadith.

But let me put all the reference books for One Hadith now so you could also start and make needful research if needed.

HADITH OF ABU HURAIRA
=======================
“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.

REFERENCES
=====================
1st Referenced by Immam Ahmed Bin Junbal and Quoted in his Book “Albadaya-Wanahaya”
2nd REferenced by Immam Nissai (Author of Sunun Nissai) also Quoted this Hadith with slightly different wordings in his books “Sunun Almujtaba” and “Sununul Kubra”.

================================

I have read the references of Hadith No. 1 and tried to write as much close to their original name as much I can. Howerver Arabic names might be pronounced a little diffent than they are done in Urdu and I appologise for any difference in them. Now that was one Hadith only, 11 References other than the original Reference of Immam Abu Huraira.. 12 in Total for just one hadith. There 4 more to go and I hope those references will be equally credible as these are.

Lets stop thinking that we are right and others are wrong on the basis of our limited intellect. We as a human dont know many things and there will be new things that God will keep revealing to us throughout our lives. So one should remain open to analyze and study the presented subject matter. If presented material is not credible enough, you are welcome not to believe it but rejecting before actually studying the content would be a fault. Lets avoid that and improve our approach towards Islam and Life in general.

Jazak-Allah for your time and attention. May God bless you all.

‘Surely, your one troop would fight with Hindustan & Allah would Bless those Warriors(Mujahid) with success, that they would bring the leaders of Sindh in fetters, Allah would forgive the Warriors. Then, when they would return, they would find Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) in Syria”.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah(R.A.) spoke:

‘If I get that Ghazwa, then would participate in it by selling all my old & new goods. When Allah would give us success, then we would come back & I would be a freed Abu Hurairah, who would come in Syria and would meet Hazrat Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) there. O Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H.) ! that time, I would be in a deep desire to tell him by going close to him that I have the honour of having the company of Muhammad(P.B.U.H.).

The narrator tells that: Muhammad S.A.W. smiles by listening this.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) told that ‘if I could find that Ghazwa, then would sell all my new & old goods and would participate in it. When Allah (S.W.T.) granted us success & we returned, then I would be a free Abu Hurairah; who would come in the country of Syria with such a pride of finding Hazrat Isa (A.S.) over there. O Muhammad(P.B.U.H.) ! that time it would be my intense wish that by coming closer to Hazrat Isa(A.S.), I may tell him that I am the Sahabi of Muhammad(P.B.U.H.).

The narrator tells that Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) smiled & said: ‘very difficult, very difficult’.

International Scenario of 4th War

Posted in Threats to India, Uncategorized with tags , , , on January 10, 2010 by ghazwatulhind

Not all is well for India nor do its foreign policies. India which was considered once a non-violence country which advocated peace has no more that kind of brand stamped on it. After its open support to Srilanka’s Government sponsored terrorism against Tamilians in that country, which as a matter of fact has gone worst with Tamilians still being killed there without any account, India is at the receiving end now.

A war in future seems certain bettween Pakistan and India, as Mahatma Gandhi predicted this war could bring in worst things with untold sufferings.

China for some reason is provoking India by making incursions in the Indian borders by flying its helicopters and marching its soldiers.

In all probabality the next war could be a combination of Pakistan and Chinese forces against Indian forces. The danger now confronting India is that it is not in the same position as before to take help from its friendly countries. There is doubt if any country would come forward to help India at that time of crisis.

Pakistan itself may not be interested in a war with India since the people of Pakistan may not want so, but China wants a war with India but it wants to give a back-side support to Pakistan instead of directly waging war with India.

One thing is certain even if India does not want war, China will force a war upon it and will corner India on all sides. Both Pakistan and Srilanka will give China a good support in the fight against India.

This time as already said India may fall short of any help from other countries due to its bad foreign relations under the present Government.

GhawatulHind – War of Muslim World with India

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on July 30, 2009 by ghazwatulhind

Hello Everybody,

Has anybody done more research or are there any questions further?

Anyway, GhazwatulHind is not the War of Pakistan/Bangladesh/China with India, its War of Muslims with Hind no matter wherever they are. When Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH has given us those valuable Ahadith, he was in Arabia and if Abu Huraira GBPWH is willing to participate, understand what does it implies.

It is very likely that Muslims of Pakistan and Bangladesh (Neighboring States of India)would be destroyed within a week of starting this war and if so happens, I along with Millions of other Muslims of the region would have been dead. So responsibility of fighting the war will be with you, Muslims who live in the Middle East, Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Please understand importance of this ghazwa and your contribution to it. Discuss it with your scholars, question them, ask them for explanation, do everything that you need to do in order to confirm their authenticity and when you are sure, educate other Muslims about it. This is Maktoob (written) and probably we will see it within our life time.

May Allah help us in our hard times and give us courage, wisdom and power to stand against the might of evils and defeat them.
