Hadith # 3



It is related to Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (R.A) that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) talked about Hindustan (India) & said:

“Definitely, one of your troop would do a war with Hindustan, Allah would grant success to those warriors, as far as they would bring their kings by dragging them in chains / fetters. And Allah would forgive those warriors (by the Blessing of this great war). And when those Muslims would return, they would find Hazrat Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) in Syria (Shaam)”.

Hazdhat 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 Rasoolullah (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) 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 (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam).

The narrator tells that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) smiled & said: ‘very difficult, very difficult’.

A few references:

Naeem bin Hammad quoted this Hadees in his book ‘Kitab Al Fitan’.

Ishaq bin Rahuya(R) also quoted this Hadees in his ‘Masnad’, in which there are few additions, so we are also quoting this narration as well, which is as follows:-

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) says that, one day Huzoor (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) said while talking about India (Hindustan):

‘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”.

Hadhrat 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 (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) 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 (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam).

The narrator tells that: Muhammad (Sall-Allaho-‘Alayhe-Wasallam) smiles by listening to this.
