حدثني هارون بن عبدالله. حدثنا حجاج بن محمد قال: قال ابن جريج: حدثني أبو الزبير؛ أنه سمع جابر بن عبدالله 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”.صحیح مسلم

حضرت ام شریک سے روایت ہے کہ اس نےنبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کو یہ فرماتے ہوئے سنا کہ لوگ دجال سے پہاڑوں کی طرف بھاگیں گے ام شریک نے عرض کیا اے اللہ کےرسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ا ن دنوں عرب کہاں ہوں گے آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرما وہ بہت کم ہوں گے۔

صحیح مسلم--راوی : ہارون بن عبداللہ حجاج بن محمد ابن جریج، ابوزبیر رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ جابر بن عبداللہ، حضرت ام شریک

Umm Sharik y reported: “I heard Allah’s Messenger (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) 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 (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said: ‘They would be very few’.[1]

Also, the following ḥadīth tells us the same thing that the Arabs will be very few who will fight the Dajjal.

حدثنا عبد الصمد حدثنا حماد قال حدثنا علي بن زيد عن الحسن عن عاشة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذكر جهدا يكون بين يدي الدجال فقالوا أي المال خير يومذ قال غلام شديد يسقي أهله الما وأما الطعام فليس قالوا فما طعام المؤمنين يومذ قال التسبيح والتقديس والتحميد والتهليل قالت عاشة فأين العرب يومذ قال العرب يومذ قليل- مسند احمد

حضرت عائشہ رضی اللہ عنہا سے مروی ہے کہ ایک مرتبہ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے خروج دجال کے موقع پر پیش آنے والی تکالیف کا ذکر کیا تو لوگوں نے پوچھا اس زمانے میں سب سے بہترین مال کون سا ہوگا؟ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا وہ طاقتور غلام جو اپنے مالک کو پانی پلا سکے، رہا کھانا تو وہ نہیں، لوگوں نے پوچھا کہ اس زمانے میں مسلمانوں کا کھانا کیا ہوگا؟ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا تسبیح و تکبیر اور تحمید و تہلیل، میں نے پوچھا کہ اس دن اہل عرب کہاں ہوں گے؟ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا اس زمانے میں اہل عرب بہت تھوڑے ہوں گے- مسند احمد:جلد نہم:حدیث نمبر 4444 حدیث مرفوع

Narrated from Sayyidna Ayesha Siddiqah . “Once the (future) difficulties at the time of the Dajjal’s appearance, were mentioned. People asked: “What will be the best type of wealth at that time?” Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)replied: “That strong slave who can give water to his master y, and as far as food is concerned, there will be no food”. People asked: “What would be the food of Muslims?” Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) said: “(The food will be) Tasbeeh (Subhan Allah) and Takbir (Allahu Akbar) and Tamheed (Alhamdulillah)”. I asked: “Where would be the Arabs at that time?” Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)replied: “At that time, the Arabs would be very few (Qaleel)”.[2]

Also another ḥadīth tells us that the non-Arab fighters will fight the great wars at the end of time:

حدثنا هشام بن عمار. حدثنا الوليد بن مسلم. ثتا عثمان بن أبي العاتكة عن سليمان بن حبيب المحاربي، عن أبي هريرة؛ قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:

((إذا وقعت الملاحم، بعث الله بعثا من الموالي، هم أكرم العرب فرسا وأجوده سلاحا، يؤيد بهم الدين)). سنن ابن ماجۃ

، حضرت ابوہریرہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ بیا ن فرماتے ہیں کہ

رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ و آلہ و سلم نے ارشاد فرمایا جب بڑی بڑی لڑائیاں ہوں گی تو اللہ تعالی عجمیوں میں سے ایک لشکر اٹھائیں گے جوعرب سے بڑھ کرشہسوار او ر ان سے بہتر ھتیاروں و الے ہوں گے اللہ تعالی انکے ذریعہ دین کی مدد فرمائیں گے سنن ابن ماجۃ ۔جلد سوم حدیث۹۷۱

Narrated Hazrat Abu Huraira : “When the great wars will occur, then Allah I will rise an Army from the non-Arabs who will be great riders, and will have better weapons than the Arabs. Allah I will support His I Deen (Islam) by them”. [3]

Important Note: Their weapon will be the weapon of Imaan (Faith), as another Ḥadīth of Ṣaḥīḥ Muslims will tell, that they will conquer Constantinople without physical weapons.

Imam Mahdi u does not live in an Arab area.

ـ قال أبو داود: وحُدِّثْتُ عن هارون بن المغيرة، قال: ثنا عمرو بن أبي قيس، عن شعيب بن خالد، عن أبي إسحاق قال:قال عليّ رضي اللّه عنه ونظر إلى ابنه الحسن فقال: إن ابني هذا سيدٌ كما سماه النبي صلى اللّه عليه وسلم وسيَخْرُجُ من صُلبه رجلٍ يُسَمَّى باسم نَبِيَّكم صلى اللّه عليه وسلم يُشْبهُهُ في الخُلُقِ، ولايُشْبهُهُ في الخلْقِ، ثم ذكر قصةً: يملأ الأرض عدلاً”.. سنن ابوداؤد

امام ابوداؤد فرماتے ہیں کہ مجھ سے ہارون بن مغیرہ، عمرو بن ابی قیس عن شعیب بن خالد عن اسحاق کے واسطہ سے بیان کیا گیا کہ حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے اپنے صاحبزادے سے حضرت حسن کی طرف دیکھ کر فرمایا میرا یہ بیٹا سردار ہوگا جیسے کہ نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے اس کا نام رکھا تھا اور عن قریب اس کی نسل میں ایک شخص پیدا ہوگا جس کا نام تمہارے نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے نام کے مطابق ہوگا وہ اخلاق میں تمہارے نبی کے مشابہ ہوگا لیکن خلقت میں مشابہ نہیں ہوگا. پھر طویل قصہ ذکر کر کے فرمایا کہ وہ زمین کو عدل وانصاف سے بھر دے گا. سنن ابوداؤد:جلد سوم:حدیث نمبر 897

Hazrat Ali looked at son, Hassan , and said that: “This son of mine will be a leader just like he was named by our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم), and soon a person will be born from his progeny whose name will be like the name of your Prophet. He will have the Akhlkaq (Character) like your Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم), but his Khalaq (appearance) will not be like him”. Then he (Imam Ali y) told us a long story, and then said that: “He will fill the earth with Justice”.[4]

The family of dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) is all over the world, adopting different cultures. So Imam Mahdi will be from the family of the Prophet r, but living among the Banu Israel and therefore not wearing the clothes of the Arabs.

Imam Mahdi’s u dress is not from the Arabs.

We already have seen this ḥadīth before:

(حديث مرفوع) حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ الرَّازِيُّ ، ثنا عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ ، ثنا عَنْبَسَةُ بْنُ أَبِي صَغِيرَةَ ، ثنا الأَوْزَاعِيُّ ، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ حَبِيبٍ ، قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ أَبَا أُمَامَةَ ، يَقُولُ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : “ سَيَكُونُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَ الرُّومِ أَرْبَعُ هُدَنٍ ، تَقُومُ الرَّابِعَةُ عَلَى يَدِ رَجُلٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ هِرَقْلَ يَدُومُ سَبْعَ سِنِينَ “ ، فَقَالَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ مِنْ عَبْدِ الْقَيْسِ يُقَالُ لَهُ الْمُسْتَوْرِدُ بْنُ خِيلانَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، مَنْ إِمَامُ النَّاسِ يَوْمَئِذٍ ؟ قَالَ : “ مِنْ وُلْدِ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً كَأَنَّ وَجْهَهُ كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ ، فِي خَدِّهِ الأَيْمَنِ خَالٌ أَسْوَدُ ، عَلَيْهِ عَبَاءَتَانِ قَعْوَايَتَانِ ، كَأَنَّهُ مِنْ رِجَالِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ، يَمْلِكُ عِشْرِينَ سَنَةً يَسْتَخْرِجُ الْكُنُوزَ ، وَيَفْتَحُ مَدَائِنَ الشِّرْكِ “ . رقم الحديث: 7367.الكتب 187 المعجم الكبير للطبراني

ابو امامہ روایت فرماتے ہیں کہ رسول اللہ صلّی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلّم نے فرمایا کہ تمھارے اور روم کے درمیان چار مرتبہ صلح ہوگی۔ چوتھی صلح ایسے شخص کے ہاتھ پر ہوگی جو آل ہرقل سے ہوگا اور یہ صلح سات سال تک برابر قائم رہے گی۔ رسو ل اللہ صلّی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلّم سے پوچھا گیا کہ اس وقت مسلمانوں کا امام کون شخص ھوگا۔ آپ صلّی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلّم نے فرمایا کہ وہ شخص میری اولاد میں سے ہوگا، اور وہ دو قطوانی عبائیں (بنی اسرائیل کا لباس) پہنے ہوگا، بلکل ایسا معلوم ہوگا جیسا بنی اسرائیل کا کوئی شخص ، دس سال حکومت کرے گا، زمین سے خزانوں کو نکالے گا اور مشرکین کے شہروں کو فتح کرے گا ۔ رقم الحديث: 7367.الكتب 187 المعجم الكبير للطبراني

Narrated Hazrat Umama reported Rasulullah (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) said: “You and the Romans (Christians) will have four peace treaties. The fourth peace would be at the hand of a person who would be from the Al-e-Harqul (family of Roman King Harqul). This peace treaty would be for seven years”. Rasulullah r was asked who would be the Imam of the Muslims at that time. Rasulullah r said” “That person would be from my family, his age would be 40 years, his face would be bright as a star, and a black spot would be on his right cheek. He would be wearing two Qutwani Shawls. He will appear exactly as the person from Banu Israel. He will rule for 20 years and will conquer the cities of the Mushrikeen (Idolaters)”.[5]

In this ḥadīth we see that Imam Mahdi is wearing the dress of Banu Israel, and not the dress of the Arabs.

In fact woolen clothes cannot be worn in the hot climate of Arabia.

The Ghuraba: The revival of Islam will be at the hands of the very poor foreign refugees coming to the Arabian Peninsula.

We can see that in the ḥadīth it is told that the people who will be expelled from their homes or homeland will join the Army of Prophet Eisa u in the End of Times.

)حديث مرفوع) أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو الْحَسَنِ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ فِهْرٍ الْمِصْرِيُّ , بِمَكَّةَ ، حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ رَشِيقٍ ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ الرَّازِيُّ ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ ، عَنْ وَكِيعِ بْنِ الْجَرَّاحِ ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ رَجَاءٍ ، عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ , قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : “ أَحَبُّ شَيْءٍ إِلَى اللَّهِ الْغُرَبَاءُ , قِيلَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، وَمَنِ الْغُرَبَاءُ ؟ قَالَ : الْفَرَّارُونَ بِدِينِهِمْ , يَبْعَثُهُمُ اللَّهُ مَعَ عِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ “ . الكتب » الزهد الكبير للبيهقي » رقم الحديث: 214

Narrated from Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar , he said that: “Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) said that: “The most dear to Allah I are the “Ghuraba”. When asked who are the “Ghuraba”? Our Dear Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) said that the “Ghuraba” are those who have escaped with their Deen (Islam) (i.e.: refugees). Allah will join them with Sayyidna Eisa (Jesus) Bin Mariam (alayhay salam)on the Judgement Day”. [6]

The refugees will be leader of Islam in the End of Times.

حدثنا عمرو بن سواد العامري أخبرنا عبد الله بن وهب أخبرني عمرو بن الحارث أن بکر بن سوادة حدثه أن يزيد بن رباح هو أبو فراس مولی عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص حدثه عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص عن رسول الله صلی الله عليه وسلم أنه قال إذا فتحت عليکم فارس والروم أي قوم أنتم قال عبد الرحمن بن عوف نقول کما أمرنا الله قال رسول الله صلی الله عليه وسلم أو غير ذلک تتنافسون ثم تتحاسدون ثم تتدابرون ثم تتباغضون أو نحو ذلک ثم تنطلقون في مساکين المهاجرين فتجعلون بعضهم علی رقاب بعض. صحیح مسلم

عمر بن سواد عامری، عبداللہ بن وہب، عمرو بن حارث، بکر بن سوادہ، یزید بن رباح، ابوفراس مولی حضرت عبداللہ بن عمرو بن عاص رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے روایت ہے کہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا جب فارس اور روم کو فتح کرلیا جائے گا اس وقت تم کس حال میں ہو گے؟ حضرت عبدالرحمن بن عوف رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ فرماتے ہیں کہ ہم نے عرض کیا ہیمں جس طرح اللہ نے حکم فرمایا ہے رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کیا اس کے علاوہ اور کچھ نہیں؟ تم ایک دوسرے پر رشک کرو گے پھر آ پس میں ایک دوسرے سے حسد کرو گے پھر آپس میں ایک دوسرے سے بغض رکھو گے یا آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے اسی طرح کچھ فرمایا پھر تم مسکین مہاجروں کی طرف جاؤ گے اور بعض کو دوسروں کا سردار بناؤ گے. صحیح مسلم:جلد سوم:حدیث نمبر 2927 , متفق علیہ

‘Abdullah b. ‘Amr b. al-As y reported that Allah’s Messenger (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said: “How would you be, Oh people when Persia and Rome would be conquered for you?” ‘Abd -al-Rahman b. Auf y said: ‘We would say as Allah I has commanded us, and we would express our gratitude to Allah’. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said: “Nothing else besides it? You would (in fact) vie with one another, then you would feel jealous, then your relations would be estranged, and then you will bear enmity against one another, or something to the same effect. Then you would go to the poor emigrants and would make some the masters of the others”.[7]

Ghuraba (aliens / immigrants / stranger) of the End of Times means the refugees or the Muslims who leave their homes to save their faith.

حدثنا عبد الله بن محمد بن أبي شيبة وسمعته أنا من ابن أبي شيبة حدثنا حفص بن غياث عن الأعمش عن أبي إسحاق عن أبي الأحوص عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن الإسلام بدأ غريبا وسيعود غريبا كما بدأ فطوبى للغربا قيل ومن الغربا قال النزاع من القبال. مسند احمد

حضرت ابن مسعود رضی اللہ عنہ سے مروی ہے کہ جناب رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے ارشاد فرمایا اسلام کی ابتداء بھی اجنبی میں ہوئی، اور عنقریب یہ اسی حال پر لوٹ جائے گا جیسے اس کا آغاز ہوا تھا، سو خوشخبری ہے غرباء کے لئے، کسی نے پوچھا غرباء سے کون لوگ مراد ہیں؟ فرمایا قبائل سے کھینچ کر لائے جانے والے لوگ۔ مسند احمد:جلد دوم:حدیث نمبر 1856

Narrated by Abdullah bin Masood y that our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said that: “Islam started as alien (stranger), and soon it will go back to the same state, the way it started. So, good news is for the Ghuraba (alien / immigrants/ strangers / refugees). Someone asked which people are the Ghuraba? Our Dear Prophet r replied that: “Those who have been expelled from their tribes”.[8]

Imam al-Harawi (may Allah have mercy on him) states the same explanation:

أرادبذلكالمهاجرينالذينهجرواأوطانهمإلىاللهتعالى

Translation: “It refers to those migrants who leave their hometowns for the sake of Allah Ta’ala”.[9]

The following Ḥadīth tells us the characteristics of the Ghuraba:

1. They will be extremely poor.

2. They will be refugees or immigrants.

3. They will not be from the Arabs, as our Dear Prophet r tells this to the first Khalifa, Abu Bakar in this next ḥadīth.

حدثنا قتيبة حدثنا ابن لهيعة عن الحارث بن يزيد عن جندب بن عبد الله عن سفيان بن عوف عن عبد الله بن عمرو قال كنت عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وطلعت الشمس فقال يأتي الله قوم يوم القيامة نورهم كنور الشمس فقال أبو بكر أنحن هم يا رسول الله قال لا ولكم خير كثير ولكنهم الفقرا والمهاجرون الذين يحشرون من أقطار الأرض وقال طوبى للغربا طوبى للغربا طوبى للغربا فقيل من الغربا يا رسول الله قال ناس صالحون في ناس سو كثير من يعصيهم أكثر ممن يطيعهم. مسند احمد

حضرت ابن عمرو رضی اللہ عنہ سے مروی ہے کہ ایک دن میں نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے پاس بیٹھا ہوا تھا اس وقت سورج طلوع ہو رہا تھا نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا قیامت کے دن میری امت کے کچھ لوگ اس طرح آئیں گے کہ ان کا نور سورج کی روشنی کی طرح ہو گا حضرت ابوبکر رضی اللہ عنہ نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! کیا وہ ہم لوگ ہوں گے؟ فرمایا نہیں تمہارے لیے خیر کثیر ہے لیکن یہ وہ فقراء مہاجرین ہوں گے جنہیں زمین کے کونے کونے سے جمع کر لیا جائے گا۔ اور آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے تین مرتبہ فرمایا کہ خوشخبری ہے غرباء کے لئے کسی نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! غرباء سے کون لوگ مراد ہیں ؟ نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا برے لوگوں کے جم غفیر میں تھوڑے سے نیک لوگ، جن کی بات ماننے والوں کی تعداد سے زیادہ نہ ماننے والوں کی تعداد ہو۔ مسند احمد:جلد سوم:حدیث نمبر 2560

Narrated by Hazrat Abdullah ibn Umar : One day I was sitting with Allah’s Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم). At that time sun was rising and our Dear Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said that: “Allah will bring some people from a nation who will have “Noor” (sacred light) like the sun. Hazrat Abu Bakr asked, O Prophet of Allah (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم), will those be us? Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) said: “No, (they will be not from among you), but you have “Kahir-e-Katheer (abundant goodness). (In fact) those people will be the very poor (like beggars) people and the immigrants (refugees) who will be gathered together from (different) corners of the word”. Then our Dear Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said: “Glad tidings (or good news) for the Ghuraba (the strangers or the poor). Someone again asked: “Who are the Ghuraba? Our Dear Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)replied: “A very few good (or pious) people among a large number of bad (or sinful) people, whom a very few will obey (or listen), and a majority will disobey (or not listen to them)”.[10]

Further discussion about the Ghuraba (i.e.: immigrants, strangers, aliens, poor) people will be given in later chapters of this book.

Abundance of money will put many Arabs in a state of afflictions.

The Arab downfall as stated in the ḥadīth will be due to the abundance of money among the Arabs as told in the following ḥadīth.

عن عوف بن مالک قال اتیت النبی صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم فی غزوہ تبو ک وھوفی قبۃ من اَدَمِ فقال اعدد ستاّ بین یدی الساعتہ موتی۔ثم فتح بیت المقدس ثم موتان ثم یاخذ فیکم کقعاس الغنم ۔ثم استفاضۃ المال حتی یعطی الرجل مائتہ دینار فعیظل ساخطا ثُمِّ فتنہ لا یبقی بیت من ا لعرب الا دخلتہُ ثُمِّ ھدنۃ تکونُ بینکُم وبین بنی الاصفر فَیَغد رون فیاتونکم تحت ثمانین غایۃ تحت کل غایۃ تحت کل غایۃ اثنا عشر الفا (رواہ بخاری)

ترجمۃ۔ عوف بن مالک سے روایت ھے کہ میں غزوہ تبوک میں رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم کی خدمت میں حاضر ھوا اور آپ رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم چمڑے کے خیمے میں تشریف فرما تھے۔آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآ لہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ قیامت سے پہلے چھ باتیں گن رکھو سب سے پھلے میری وفات،پھر بیت المقدس کی فتح پھر تم میں بیماری عام ھو جایے گی جس طرح بکریوں میں وبائ امراض پھیل جاے ۔پھر مال کی بہتات ھوگی حتی کہ ایک شخص کو سو سو دینا ر دے جأیں گے اور وہ خوش نہ ھوگا پھر وہ تم سے عہد شکنی کریں گے اور اسی ۸۰ جھنڈوں کے ساتھ تم پر چڑھای کریں گے اور ھر جھنڈے کے نیچے بارہ ھزار کا لشکر ھوگا۔ رواہ بخاری

Auf bin Malik says: “I came to Rasulullah(اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) while he was in his skin tent during the Tabuk expedition. He said to me: “Count six things before the advent of Qiyamah:

1. My death.

2. The conquest of Jerusalem.

3. Mass deaths amongst you people, just as when sheep die in large numbers during an epidemic.

4. Abundance of wealth to such an extent that if a person were to be given a hundred Dinars (gold coins) he will still not be satisfied.

5. General afflictions (among the Arabs), that no Arab household will be spared from it.

6. Then a life of peace as a result of a peace agreement between you and the Banu Asfaar (Sons of the Blonde i.e.: Romans as they have yellow hair), which they will break and attack you with a force consisting of eighty flags and under each flag will be an army of twelve thousand men”.[11]

This ḥadīth clearly tells us that after the abundance of Money among the Arabs, they will have fitnah (afflictions) among themselves.

The following ḥadīth further confirms the above ḥadīth.

This ḥadīth tells us that how the Arabs will get rich, and build tall buildings:

الْحَدِيثُ بِهِ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ وَأَمَّا حَدِيثُ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ : فَقَالَ الْإِمَامُ أَحْمَدُ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو النَّضِرِ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْحَمِيدِ حَدَّثَنَا شَهْرٌ حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : جَلَسَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَجْلِسًا فَجَاءَ جِبْرِيلُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ فَجَلَسَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَاضِعًا كَفَّيْهِ عَلَى رُكْبَتَيِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، حَدِّثْنِي مَا الْإِسْلَامُ ؟ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الْإِسْلَامُ أَنْ تُسْلِمَ وَجْهَكَ لِلَّهِ وَتَشْهَدَ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ . قَالَ : إِذَا فَعَلْتُ ذَلِكَ فَأَنَا مُسْلِمٌ ؟ قَالَ : إِذَا فَعَلْتَ ذَلِكَ فَقَدْ أَسْلَمْتَ . قَالَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، فَحَدِّثْنِي مَا الْإِيمَانُ ؟ قَالَ : الْإِيمَانُ أَنْ تُؤْمِنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالْكُتُبِ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ وَتُؤْمِنَ بِالْمَوْتِ وَبِالْحَيَاةِ بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ وَتُؤْمِنَ بِالْجَنَّةِ وَالنَّارِ وَالْحِسَابِ وَالْمِيزَانِ وَتُؤْمِنَ بِالْقَدَرِ كُلِّهِ خَيْرِهِ وَشَرِّهِ . قَالَ : فَإِذَا فَعَلْتُ ذَلِكَ فَقَدْ آمَنْتُ ؟ قَالَ : إِذَا فَعَلْتَ ذَلِكَ فَقَدْ آمَنْتَ . قَالَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، حَدِّثْنِي عَنِ الْإِحْسَانِ . قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الْإِحْسَانُ أَنْ تَعْمَلَ لِلَّهِ كَأَنَّكَ تَرَاهُ ، فَإِنَّكَ إِنْ لَمْ تَرَاهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَرَاكَ . قَالَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، فَحَدِّثْنِي مَتَى السَّاعَةُ ؟ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ فِي خَمْسٍ مِنَ الْغَيْبِ لَا يَعْلَمُهُنَّ إِلَّا اللَّهُ : ( إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِنْدَهُ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرْحَامِ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ مَاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَدًا وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ ) وَلَكِنْ إِنْ شِئْتَ حَدَّثْتُكَ بِمَعَالِمَ لَهَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ . قَالَ : أَجَلْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ فَحَدِّثْنِي . قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا رَأَيْتَ الْأَمَةَ وَلَدَتْ رَبَّتَهَا أَوْ رَبَّهَا ، وَرَأَيْتَ أَصْحَابَ الشَّاءِ تَطَاوَلُوا بِالْبُنْيَانِ وَرَأَيْتَ الْحُفَاةَ الْجِيَاعَ الْعَالَةَ كَانُوا رُءُوسَ النَّاسِ فَذَلِكَ مِنْ مَعَالِمِ السَّاعَةِ وَأَشْرَاطِهَا . قَالَ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، وَمَنْ أَصْحَابُ الشَّاءِ وَالْحُفَاةُ الْجِيَاعُ الْعَالَةُ ؟ قَالَ : الْعَرَبُ . مسند احمد:جلد ہفتم:حدیث نمبر 643 حدیث متواتر حدیث

حضرت عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبَّاسٍ رضی اللہ عنہ سے مروی ہے کہ ایک مرتبہ نبیﷺ اپنے صحابہ رضی اللہ عنہم کے ساتھ کسی مجلس میں تشریف فرما تھے، کہ حضرت جبرائیل علیہ السلام اپنی شکل وصورت بدل کر آگئے، نبیﷺیہ سمجھے کہ یہ کوئی مسلمان آدمی ہے، انہوں نے سلام کیا، نبیﷺ نے جواب دیا، پھر انہوں نے اپنے ہاتھ نبیﷺ کے گھٹنوں پر رکھ دیئے اور پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! ( ﷺ ) اسلام سے کیا مراد ہے؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا اپنے آپ کو اللہ کے سامنے جھکا دو، لا الہ الا اللہ کی گواہی دو اور یہ کہ محمد ﷺ اللہ کے بندے اور اس کے رسول ہیں ، نماز قائم کرو اور زکوۃ دو، انہوں نے پوچھا کہ جب میں کام کرلوں گا تو مسلمان کہلاؤں گا؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا ہاں ! پھر انہوں نے پوچھا کہ ایمان سے کیا مراد ہے؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا کہ اللہ پر، یوم آخرت، ملائکہ، کتابوں ، نبیوں ، موت اور حیات بعد الموت، جنت و جہنم، حساب و میزان اور ہر اچھی بری تقدیر اللہ کی طرف سے ہونے کا یقین رکھو، انہوں نے پوچھا کہ جب میںیہ کام کرلوں گا تو مومن بن جاؤں گا؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا ہاں ! پھر انہوں نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! ( ﷺ ) احسان سے کیا مراد ہے؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا اللہ کی عبادت اس طرح کرنا کہ گویا تم اسے دیکھ رہے ہو، اگر یہ تصور نہیں کر سکتے تو پھر یہی تصور کر لو کہ وہ تمہیں دیکھ رہا ہے، انہوں نے پوچھا اگر میں ایسا کر لو تو میں نے احسان کا درجہ حاصل کر لیا؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا ہاں ، راوی کہتے ہیں کہ ہم لوگ نبیﷺ کے جوابات تو سن رہے تھے لیکن وہ شخص نظر نہیں آرہا تھا جس سے نبیﷺ گفتگو فرما رہے تھے اور نہ ہی اس کی بات سنائی دے رہی تھی۔ پھر سائل نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! ( ﷺ ) قیامت کب آئے گی؟ نبیﷺ نے فرمایا سبحان اللہ! غیب کی پانچ چیزیں ایسی ہیں جنہیں اللہ کے علاوہ کوئی نہیں جانتا، (پھر یہ آیت تلاوت فرمائی) بیشک قیامت کا علم اللہ ہی کے پاس ہے، وہی بارش برساتا ہے، وہی جانتا ہے کہ رحم مادر میں کیا ہے؟ کوئی نفس نہیں جانتا کہ وہ کل کیا کمائے گا؟ اور کوئی نفس نہیں جانتا کہ وہ کس سر زمین میں مرے گا، بیشک اللہ بڑا جاننے والا باخبر ہے۔ پھر سائل نے عرض کیایا رسول اللہ! ( ﷺ ) اگر آپ چاہیں تو میں آپ کو دو علامتیں بتا سکتا ہوں جو قیامت سے پہلے رونما ہوں گی اس نے پوچھا: مجھے قیامت (کا وقت) بتائیے۔ آپ نے فرمایا: جس سے پوچھا گیا ہے وہ سائل سے زیادہ نہیں جانتا۔ تب اس نے کہا: مجھے اس کی علامات سے آگاہ فرمائیے ۔ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا جب تم دیکھو کہ لونڈی اپنی مالکن کو جنم دے رہی ہے، اور بکریاں چرانے والے بڑی بڑی عمارتوں پر ایک دوسرے سے فخر کرنے لگے ہیں، ننگے بھوکے اور محتاج لوگ سردار بن چکے ہیں تو یہ قیامت کی علامات اور نشانیوں میں سے ہے، انہوں نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ! صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم یہ بھیڑ (بکریاں)چرانے چرانے والے، ننگے پاؤں، بھوکے اور محتاج لوگ کون ہیں؟ فرمایا اہل عرب۔ مسند احمد:جلد ہفتم:حدیث نمبر 643 حدیث متواتر حدیث

Note: It should be noted that now you will find a change in the translation of the same ḥadīth. The word “Arabs” is changed to village people or sometimes it is not even mentioned. Astagfirullah.

I am translating in English only part of the above full ḥadīth in Arabic.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Abbas : Once our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)was sitting in a meeting. At that time, Angel Jibril u came (in human form) … (part of a long ḥadīth) … Our Dear Prophet Muḥammad (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)said that: “The female slave should give birth to her mistress, and you see shepherds of sheep (and goats) competing in making tall buildings, and you see bare footed, hungry and poor people becoming rulers, then this is among the signs of the (coming of) the Qiyamah (Judgement Day)”. People asked: “O Rasul Allah (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)who are these shepherds of sheep (and goats), the bare footed, hungry and needy (poor) people?” Rasul Allah (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)replied: “The Arab people”.[12]

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 (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) 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 (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم) 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 dear Prophet (اللهم صل علي سيدنا محمد واله و اصحابه و بارك وسلم)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.

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...

HAZRAT EISA IS ALSO FROM THE BANI-ISRAEL & BANI-ISHAQ

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.

WHAT IS MEANT BY QUTWANI CLOAKS IN AHDITH?

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.

SUMMARY :

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.

29

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.

33

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

12

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.

Because in the previous Ahadith the Bani Ishaq from Khorsan is mentioned so here in this Hadith the The Tribe of Qais has the same meaning. ALSO ITS CLEAR THAT HAZRAT ESA (JESUS) WOULD COME AND JOIN THE FORCES OF IMAM MAHDI AND HAZRAT ESSA IS ALSO FROM BANI-ISRAEL AND THUS HE WOULD JOIN THE FORCES OF THE MUSLIMS WHOSE MAJORITY IS ALSO FROM HIS OWN RACE ie THE MUSLIM BANI-ISRAEL
