The Role of Arabs:

Before reading these Ahadith it should be kept in mind that we are all taught to respect and love the Arab Nation since Dear Prophet (Salallaho alayhay wa allam) is also Arab. So we must give high respect to the Arab Race.

Here are the Major points under this topic

The Arabs will be very less at at the time of Imam Mahdi

A very small number of Arabs will be there at the time of the Jihad against the Jewish King DAJJAL as told in the following hadith


Umm Sharik reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (Salallaho alayhay wa sallam) as saying: The people would run away from the Dajjal seeking shelter in the mountains. She said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day? He said: They would be very few. Reference : Saheeh Muslim Book 041, Number 7035

‏حدثني ‏ ‏هارون بن عبد الله ‏ ‏حدثنا ‏ ‏حجاج بن محمد ‏ ‏قال قال ‏ ‏ابن جريج ‏ ‏حدثني ‏ ‏أبو الزبير ‏ ‏أنه سمع ‏ ‏جابر بن عبد الله ‏ ‏يقول أخبرتني ‏ ‏أم شريك ‏ 
‏أنها سمعت النبي ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏يقول ‏ ‏ليفرن الناس من ‏ ‏الدجال ‏ ‏في الجبال قالت ‏ ‏أم شريك ‏ يا رسول الله فأين ‏ ‏العرب ‏يومئذ قال هم قليل 

صحيح مسلم

  • Mahdi’s army will consist majority of Bani Isaaq or Bani Israel (Also only Bani Isaaq will fight the final war with the Christians i.e The Armageddon)

    Allah Subhanahu Ta Ala Promised Bani Israel, before to become the inheritors of the Lands of the West and in the East. Once again this promise will be fulfilled and Bani Israel Prophet Eisa ( JESUS ) Alayhay Salam will lead Bani Israel and conquer the world insha Allah

    سورة الاٴعرَاف

    وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ الْحُسْنَىٰ عَلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ بِمَا صَبَرُوا ‌٧-١٣٧

    and the good word of your Lord was fulfilled in the children of Israel because they bore up (sufferings) patiently(137-7)

    اور بنی اسرائیل کے بارے میں ان کے صبر کی وجہ سے تمہارے پروردگار کا وعدہٴ نیک پورا ہوا

    Ahadith written below further proves this that Childern of Israel or Isaaq will again rise and get the Khilafah (leadership) on this Earth by the grace of Allah


    Only the Bani Isaac اسحاق‎ (Childern of Prophet Isaaq)will fight 

    the biggest & final battle with Christian.

    The Armegeddon with the Christians will only and only be fought by the Bani Isaaq Muslims and not the Arab Muslims as it is clear from the following three Ahadith
  • 1-Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people of the earth at that time will come from Medina (to counteract them). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans would say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisoners from amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say: Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethren that you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part of the army). which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah's eye, would be killed ani the third who would never be put to trial would win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as they would be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves) after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: The Dajjal has taken your place among your family. They would then come out, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, he would come out while they would be still preparing themselves for battle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ).

     " Reference: Saheeh Muslim, Kitaab al-Fitan, 8 - 175, 176.



    The above hadith tells us the biggest fight with the Christians or the Armageddon.

    We see these points in this hadith

    1.      1/3rd of Muslims will be left behind after this Armageddon

    2.      These 1/3rd Muslims will conquer Constantinople.

    Now who are these Muslims who have fought this Armegeddon with the Christians and then conquered Constantinople???

    The folowing Hadith will clear this question as it clearly tells that these Muslims are from the BANI ISHAQ only.

  • Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle  (may peace he upon him) saying: You have heard about a city the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allall's Messenger, yes. Therer upon he said: The Last Hour would not come unlesss seventy thousand[1] persons from Bani lshaq would attack it. When they would land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor would shower arrows but would only say:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest," that one side of it would fall. Thaur (one of the narrators) said: I think that he said: The part by the side of the ocean. Then they would say for the second time:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest" that the second side would also fall, and they would say:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest," that the gates would be opened for them and they would enter therein and, they would be collecting spoils of war and distributing them amongst themselves that a noise would be heard and It would be said: Verily, Dajjal has come. And thus they would leave everything there and would turn to him.*   Reference Book 041, Number 6979: Saheh Muslim

  • So this proves that Only the Bani Ishaq will fight against the Christians in the Armegeddon and they will be left behind to conquer Constantinople.

    Now we have two more points by reading the above Ahadith i.e

  • 3.      After conquering Constantinople these 1/3rd Muslims will hear a cry of coming of Dajjal.

    4.      Then these 1/3rd Muslims will start preparing for prayers (Salat )before the war when Prophet Sayyidna Eisa (Jesus) Alayhay Salam will come.

    Now when they will be waiting for the Prayers (Salat) what will be the situation of the Arabs? This is told in the following hadith.

     When these two event will be over then a small number of Arabs will join these forces as told in this hadith. 

    * Narrated by Hadrat Umama a long Hadith from Dear Prophet(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) where Umm Sharik said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day?(Meaning why the Arabs wont come forward and fight for Islam ). He(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said: They would be small in number? And from that remaning Arabs,most of them will be in Bait-ul-Muqaddas (Sham) and their leader will be a pious man (Mahdi).When their leader will move forward to lead the Morning prayers,then,Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will descend from the sky.The leader will step back so that  Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will lead the prayers but Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will put his hand on his back between his shoulders and say Move forward and lead the prayers because the Aqamah was called for you.Then the Imam will lead the prayers to all people. (Reference :  Sunan Abi Majah ,307,308)

  • That’s why hadith tells that Very little Arabs will be left to fight Dajjal.

    The following hadith (along with the above two ahadith) clearly tells that Arabs will join only when Bani Ishaq Muslims will be preparing for war and at the time of Salat, Prophet Eisa Alayhay Salam will come.

    Two points are cleared here that the Arabs

    1. Will not take part in the war with the Christians and
    2. Will not participate in the conquest of Constantinople.
    3. they will only come (in a very small number) when Bani Ishaq Muslims will be preparing for Prayers (Salat) (before war against Dajjal) and when Prophet Jesus arrives.


    Please be clear that these two ahadith tells that

    The time of Waiting for Salat (prayers) and coming of Prophet Jesus (Eisa)  is  AFTER the Armageddoon with the Christians and AFTER the conqest of Constantinople .

  • Also the following hadith again clearly tells that very less number of Arabs will be present to fight Dajjal(they wont be present to fight the Armageddon with the Christians

     3-Umm Sharik reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The people would run away from the Dajjal seeking shelter in the mountains. She said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day? He said: They would be small in number.( Reference : Saheeh Muslim Book 041, Number 7035)


  • The army of Mahdi will come from the East and not from any Arabian city

    Adbullah bin Haris (R.A) reported that Dear Propet(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said, Some people will come out from the EAST who will make Caliphate(Islamic rule) easy for Imam Mahdi.*1 *1*Reference Ibn-e-Majah 4088

    • Dear Prophet(Salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) said that from the East once the Childern   of Abbas will come out with black flags and will stay as long Allah subhanahu wa ta-ala wills and then small black flags will appear who will fight with the off spring of Abu Sufyan and their partners and they will obey (Imam )Mahdi    Reference: Al-Hawi 69/2

    The Islamic Army of the EAST will not be supported by the Arabs

    •  Narrated by Hazrat Abdullah Bin Masood(raddi Allah anho) that Dear Propher (salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said: A Nation will come from the East with Black Flags and they will ask for some “Khair” (because of them being needy) but the people will not give them,then,they will fight  and win over those people(who didn’t give them what they asked).Now the people will give them what they asked for but they will not accept it untill they will hand it over to a person from my progeny  who will fill this earth with Justice just as it was previoulsy filled with opression and tyranny .So if anyone of you find this Nation( i. e from the East with black flags) then you must joing them even if you have to crawl over ice.*Reeference  Al-Asha-ah الآﺸﺍﻋﺔ  Page 240.

    The Arabs will Attack Imam Mahdi and they will be killed by Imam Mahdi's Army in such a way as never ever happened before with Arabs

    -Thwaban said, The Prophet said, Three men will be killed at the place where your treasure is. Each

    of them will be the son of a Khalifah, and none of them will get hold of the treasure. Then the

    black banners will come out of the East, and they will slaughter you in a way which has never been

    seen before. Then he said something which I do not remember; then, If you see him, go and give

    him your allegiance, even if you have to crawl over ice, because he is the Khalifah of Allah, the

    Mahdi.. (Reference: Ibn Majah & Also Hakim Mustadrik  j4 P 463) 

    Arabs tribes will be made SLAVES by Mahdi's Army & it will be allowed to make Arabs as slaves (which had been made forbidden before)

    • Umm Salamah reported that the Prophet said, People will begin to differ after the death of a Khalifah. A man from the people of Madinah will flee to Makkah. Some of the people of Makkah will come to him and drag him out against his will; they will swear allegiance to him between al-Rukn and al-Maqam. An army will be sent against him from Syria; it will be swallowed up in the desert between Makkah and Madinah. When the people see this, groups of people from Syria and Iraq will come and swear allegiance to him. Then a man from Quraysh whose mother is from Kalb will appear and send an army against them, and will defeat them; this will be known as the Battle of Kalb. Whoever does not witness the spoils of this battle will miss much! The Mahdi will distribute the wealth, and will rule the people according to the Sunnah of the Prophet. Then he will die, and the Muslims will pray for him.
      (Reference.Abu Daud)

    • Hadrat Abu Huraraira narrated that Dear Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaho alayhay wa Sallam) said that..Reference


    Hadith telling that the destruction of Arabs by Mahdi Army will be due to their attack in Holy Kaabah where killing is forbidden

    3.    Narrated by Hazrat Abu Huraira(radi Allah Anho) from Hazrat Abu Qatada:

    Dear Prophet (Salallaho alayahy wa sallam) said: People will be given allegiance (Beyat) to person (i.e Mahdi) between the Ruken(Hajr-e-Aswad) and Mukam(Mukam-e-Ebraheem) and  no one else but the same people who are related to that place(citizens of Makkah) will destroy the respect of Kabah(as they will attack Mahdi in Kabah where fighting is forbidden) and when they will declare it Halal then do not ask about the killing of the ARABS(there will be a mass killing of arabs).Then Ethopians(Africans) will come and they will desolate it in such a way that it would never be a habitat and these will be the people who will take out its treasure.*3 *3  Refernce :Masnad Imam Ahmad 35/15. Also Mustadrik J5 Page 456.

    Army of Mahdi will be from Muslim Bani Israel /  Al-e-Haroon (Same meaning as Bani Ishaq in the previous hadith of Muslim)

                Narrated Hazrat Umama reported Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: You and the Romans(Christians) will have four peace treaties *4. The fourth peace would be at the hand of a person who would be from the Al-e-Haroon( family of Prophet Haroon).This peace treaty would be for seven years. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was asked who would be the Imam of the Muslims at that time. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said” That person would be from my family,his age would be 40 years ,his face would be bright as a start and a black spot would be on his right cheek.He would be wearing two Qutwani Cloaks.He will appear exactly as the person from Bani Israel. He will rule for 20 years and will conquer the cities of the Mushrikeen(Idolaters) . (Ref: Kanz-ul-Aamal, Page 268,  Hadith No 3868).This hadith proves that the Saheeh Muslim hadith(written among above ahadith) means Bani-Ishaq (Childern of Isaaq)as Al-e-Haroon(Family of Haroon) and Bani-Israel(Childern of Israel )  have the same meaning as Bani-Ishaq)

    Here are some more Ahadith telling clearly about the link of Imam Mahdi with the Childern of Israel (Bani Israel).

    8.      The blessed Mahdi’s stature and posture resemble those   of the    People of Israel. (Reference:Al-Qawl Al-Mukhtasar Fi alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 36-29.)


    9.      His body is an Israelite one. (Reference: Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 24.)


    10.  The Mahdi is like one of the People of Israel. (His demeanor resembles theirs, it is majestic and wise) (Reference: Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, pp. 23-30.).


    11.  The blessed Mahdi has an Israelite body. He resembles one of the greatest of the People of Israel. (Reference: Ibn Hajar al-Makki).


    12.  His body is like that one of an Israelite. (Reference: Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi, Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar).


    13.  He will resemble one of the Israelites [in his external appearance]. (Reference: Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal).


    14.  It is as if he is a man from the people of Israel.  (Reference: Nuaym ibn   Hammad, vr. 52a; Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi, Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar).


    15.  The appearance of Imam Mahdi (according to AHadith) is that he has deep wheatish complexion, light stature, medium height,beautiful broad comlexion,long straight nose,eyes brows round like bow,big natural black eyes,very white front two teeth and with a spacing between the teeth,a  black mole mark on the right cheek,face glowing like a shining star,a mark on shoulder like that of Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa Sallam),complexion like the Arabs and body like the Childern of Israel,slight slutter in the tongue due to which he hits his right hand on left thigh sometimes because of annoyance,will appear at the agae of 40 ,while praying to Allah he will expand his hands for prayers  like  birds expanding their wings, will be wearing QUTWANI CLOAKS (the clothes of Childern of Israel), will resemble in character to Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa Sallam) but in apperance he will be different from Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa Sallam)(Also Because he will wearing clothes like the Childern of Israel i.e the QUTWANI CLOAKS). (Reference. Al-Asha-ah Page 194-195 )

    • Narrated by Hazrat Umama...


    Prophet Hazrat Eisa alayhay Salam (i.e. Prophet Jesus Christ) will be sent by Allah to help Mahdi and Prophet Hazrat Eisa is also from Bani-Ishaq. I hope they don’t change Hazrat Eisa(alayhay salam) to be among the Bani-Ismael.

    This fact also proves that the BANI-ISHAQ written in the hadith means BANI-ISHAQ and not Bani Ismael since a prophet always comes among his own NATION at the beginning.

    The clothes of Mahdi are different from the Arabs

    In the above three Ahadith its clearly told that Sayyidna Imam Mahdi will be
    1. Wearing Qutwani Cloaks.
    2. His external Appearance will be different from Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho Alayhay wa Sallam)
    It means that Sayyidna Imam Mahdi will be from the Family of Dear Prophet Muhammad Salallaho alayhay wa sallam but he will be living among NON Arabs.Just like if we look around we see that Saadat (people from the family of Dear Prophet Muhammad Salallaho alayhay wa sallam) live in different parts of the world and wherever they live,they have adopted the same culture,language,dressing etc of that same area.



    According to the reference of the kafirs i.e Britannica 1997 :Qutwani cloaks resembles the "TALLIT"  of present day as called by the Israelis.Both Qutwani cloak and TALLIT have fringes (tzitzit) on borders and its mostly made of Wool.. It generally falls across the head, neck, and shoulders. However the Qutwani cloak is larger and more conspicuous prayer shawl than the Tallit.

    Now according to the Hadith there are “Two” Qutwani cloaks mentioned and are made of Wool (as many scholars described it ) and are wrapped around the body.Qutwani cloak is exactly like the cloaks worn by the Pashtoons of Afghanistan and Pakistan and its also worn in the same way like the Qutwani cloak described in the hadith and its explanation.

    The Pashtuns wrap these cloak around them to protect them from cold weather and they have fringes on the borders.Infact these cloaks are often the necessary part of the Pashtun dress (In Contrast to the present day jews who wear the so called Tziitzit as a symbol and which are much smaller to be wrapped around the body.infact it has just become a  something to show off by jews and not essential part of dress).



    The above mentioned hadith telling that Imam Mahdi would be from the  family of Dear Prophet (salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) but would NOT look like Dear Prophet(salallaho alayhay wa  alay he wa sallam) in appearance  clearly tells that Mahdi will  not be living among the Arabs  .His appearance described as wearing Qutwani cloaks and looking like a person from Bani Israel shows that he must have been living among the Pathans for a long time and therefore IMAM MAHDI would be dressed also like the Pathans.

    The Arabs Do not wrap cloaks around them like this and also their cloaks never have fringes and are not made of wool because is not so cold in middle east.



    In all  the above Ahdith four nations have been described,namely:

    1.  Bani-Isreal (Childern of Israel).

    2. Bani-Ishaq( Childern of Ishaq).

    3. Al-e-Haroon(Family of Hazrat Haroon).


    All the above four names points out to a same Nation.

    a.      Isreal was son Ishaq, so if someone is from Bani-Isreal hes also from Bani-Ishaq.

    b.      Hazrat Haroon is the brother of Hazrat Musa and is the Prophet from Bani-Israel


    So all three word means the same i.e

    Bani-Israel=Bani-Ishaq=Family of Hazrat Haroon


    And in Khorasan and also among all the Muslim Nation,only the Pathans claim to be from the Decedents fo Israel and at the same time Pathans live in Khorasan.


    The following Hadith in the further proves this fact:



    The following Authentic Hadith tells about the fight of Qais tribe with a Sufyani person who attack Imam Mahdi’s forces:


        17- Narrated by Hazrat Abu Huraira(R.A) Dear Prophet(Salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) said: That a person called Sufyani will appear from the suburbs of Damascus and his general followers will be the people of Kulaib Tribe.He attack(so fiercely) that he will cut the bellies of Women and kill children. To fight against him, the people of the Tribe of Qais will gather. Sufyani will fight them and kill them so much that no valley will be left without their dead bodies .Reference:Mustadrik J4 P 520

    Where is the tribe of Qais?


    QAIS is known as the forefather of the Pashtuns because he is the first one to embrace Islam.

    Note:Please note that the Muslim Bani Israel accepted Islam by accepting Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa alayhi wa sallam) as the last Prophet. They themselves had always believed in ONE GOD and never did SHIRK ( Paganism) and followed the true teaching of Prophet Sayyidan Musa ( Moses ) Alayahy Salam.

    His  name is actually KASH or KISH but the Arabs pronounced it QAIS.When he became Muslim he was then known as  ABDUR RASHEED.

    QAIS or KASH is actually the name of numerous personalities of the Childern of Isalm according to the Chronicles such as the following examples from the Chronicles.


    Jeiel* the father of Gibeon lived in Gibeon, and the name of his wife was Maacah. 30His firstborn son: Abdon, then Zur, Kish, Baal,* Nadab, 31Gedor, Ahio, Zecher, 32and Mikloth, who became the father of Shimeah.


    Ner became the father of Kish, Kish of Saul,* Saul* of Jonathan, Malchishua, Abinadab, and Esh-baal;


    The following are those who came to David at Ziklag, while he could not move about freely because of Saul son of Kish; they were among the mighty warriors who helped him in war.

    KISH ABDUR RASHEED had his name from his Bani Israeli forefathers.

    Note :Some people mistake him from the KISH who is the decendant of King Saul but he is actullay this KISH is the name of his forefather.He was named after his forefathers.

    In Pakistan and Afghanistan we find many places where Pashtuns live by the name of KISH/KASH such as

    ·        DASHT-E-KASH (a desert in southern Afghanistan),

    ·        The city  of Kish Khenjak in Afghanistan in Velayat-e Oruzgan .

    ·         The Solomon mountain range is also know by Pashtuns as the KASH GHAR (The Mountain of KASH or QAIS)

    ·        The HINDU KASH mountain range.


           Emperor Jahangir ordered his courtier to search for the origin of the Pashtoons and so the famous book "Makhzan e Afghani” was written in 1635,which also confirms the orgin of Pashtoons from the lost tribes and also tells about the the tribe of QAIS.The book tells us that the Qias was friend of Companion of Dear Prophet(salallaho alayhay wa  alay he wa sallam) and was  the first person among Pathans  who reverted to Islam. Most of the Pathan tribes consider Qais as their ancestor and therefore the Pathans can also be considered as the tribe of  Qais.
