Madina-e-Sani (Second Madina)

Holy city al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah:

The Arabic word madinah simply means "city." Before the advent of Islam, the city was known as Yathrib but was personally renamed by Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). The first mention of the city, under its old Arabic name Yathrib, dates to the 6th century BC. In 622 AD/1 AH, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and around 70 Meccan Muhajirun believers left Mecca for sanctuary in Yathrib, an event that transformed the religious and political landscape of the city completely; the longstanding enmity between the Aus and Khazraj tribes was dampened as many of the two Arab tribes and some local Jews embraced Islam. Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), linked to the Khazraj through his great-grandmother, was agreed on as civic leader. The Muslim converts native to Yathrib of whatever background—pagan Arab or Jewish—were called Ansar ("the Patrons" or "the Helpers"). [Wikipedia]

Yathrib is called al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah because Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) migrated to this city and established first Islamic Caliphate or union after uniting Meccan Muhajirun and local Ansar where the early Muslim community (ummah) developed under the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه وسلم) leadership, then under the leadership of the first four caliphs of Islam Abu Bakr (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ), Omar (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ), Othman (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) and Ali (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ). This city is burial place of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and will be burial place of Prophet Isa (علیہ السلام) Messiah after his second coming. Without Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) Yathrib is not called al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah.

Constantinople (Istanbul) is Madina-e-Sani:

Istanbul is Madina-e-Sani because Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will capture this city spiritually without bloodshed similar to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) who captured the city Yathrib spiritually without bloodshed.

Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) started struggle of Islam and invite people to truth in holy city Mecca but he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) migrated and established Islamic caliphate in al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah. Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will come from will come from the village of Kara to Madina-e-Sani. He will start his struggle and invite people to truth from Madina-e-Sani and capture this city spiritually. He will migrate to holy city Mecca where people will swear allegiance to him. He will descend to Jerusalem and struggle for the true faith in Jerusalem until the coming of the Prophet ‘Isa (علیہ السلام).

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“… a man [Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام)] of the people of Madina (a large city) will come forth to Mecca. Some of the people of Mecca will come to him, bring him out against his will and swear allegiance to him between the Corner and the Maqam. …” (Sunan Abu Dawud)

The word Medina is used in a metaphorical sense in the hadith handed down from our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). In other words, our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) uses the word Medina to mean very different things. There are many large cities or “Medinas” in the Islamic world. For that reason, one can only tell in what sense the word Medina is being used by looking at other accounts on the subject.

In the hadith cited above, our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) says that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will come from Medina, whereas in another hadith he says that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) “will come from the village of Land.” Imam Qurtubi’s At-Tadhkirah refers to Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) coming from the western part of the Islamic countries. This statement shows that the large city in which Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be born is in the western part of the Islamic nations.

In another hadith, our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) tells his interlocutor that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will perform the spiritual capture of Medina, in other words, a large city. In the account, because there were many Medinas (or large cities), the person speaking to our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was uncertain which Medina, in other words which large city, Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) who will achieve the spiritual conquest of. He therefore asked our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) which Medina (or large city) he meant.

Our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) answered that this Medina (city) was Constantinople (Istanbul).
Ahmad recorded a hadith by Allah ibn 'Amr, who said:

"… The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, 'Six things will happen to this Ummah: … The sixth is the conquest of a city.' I asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, which city?' He said, 'Constantinople.'" 

Therefore, the word Medina is used by our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in this hadith in the sense of a great city in order to refer to Istanbul.

Another hadith reveals that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will emerge from the city that contains the sacred relics, including the sacred banner, of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). The banner and other holy relics of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) are currently kept in a special section of Istanbul’s Topkapi Palace.

It is related from Abdullah ibn Shurafa that:

“The banner of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) will be adorned, together with Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام).“

(Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 65)

“He will appear with the camel hair banner of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). That banner has four corners, is unstitched and black in color. There is a halo on it. It has not been unfurled since the death of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), but it will be opened when Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) appears.“

(Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 23)

As for signs, he will have with him the shirt, the sword, and the banner of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). That banner has never been unfurled since the death of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). And, it will not be unfurled until the appearance of the Mahdi.

(Portents of Doomsday, p. 164)

It appears from the above hadith that the sacred relics of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) are where Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام), and that the banner will be opened up when he appears. Since the holy relics are in Istanbul, it is clear that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be in Istanbul, too.

However, one can also see from looking at other accounts that the city of Hazrat Mahdi’s (علیہ السلام) birth and the city in the west of the Islamic world is a different Medina or city from the one that he will spiritually conquer. For example, it can be seen from the description in this hadith that the city that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will capture, Istanbul, is one in which a dry path will be opened up in the sea, in other words, in which a bridge system will be used.

During the conquest of Constantinople he [Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام)] will plant a standard when he goes to make ablution for the morning prayer, and the water will divide in two and withdraw from him. He will cross to the other side through this path that opens and say,

“O people, learn from this. The sea has parted its waters for us, just as it did for the tribe of Israel.” 

They will utter the takbir again and again and with twelve takbirs the twelve towers of the city will collapse.

(Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi Alamat al-Mahdi al- Muntadhar, p. 57)

The hadith also states that Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will plant a standard in this city, making it clear that the city is the one that contains the holy banner of our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

Is Pakistan Madina-e-Sani?

The Land of Pure People:

Many Pakistani writers claim that Pakistan is a Madina-e-Sani (second Madina after holy city of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah “the radiant city”) and Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will emerge from Pakistan. In picture below they have tried to prove that wordy meaning of Persian word “Pakistan” (پاکستان) and Arabic word “Madina Tayyaba” (مدینہ طیبہ) are both equivalent to “The Land of Pure People”. They believe Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) or his force will shed blood to create Madina-e-Sani and then he and his force will establish Caliphate in Makkah to unit Muslims. Many terrorists and radicals use these writings to justify killings and terror as they believe they are force of Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) and they are protecting land of pure people. These writers have following points for their claim...

  • The main purpose of establishing state of Medina was providing a strong center for Muslims.
  • Objective of ideology of Pakistan (Two Nation Theory) is also providing a separate strong center for Indian Muslims in subcontinent.
  • Muslims migrated from place of idolaters Mecca to Madina
  • Indian Muslim also migrated from place of idolaters India to Pakistan
  • Muslims of Madina fought 3 big wars with Arab idolaters and apparently lost one of them (Ghazwa-e-Uhud)
  • Muslims of Pakistan fought 3 big wars with Indian idolaters and apparently lost one of them (1971 war)
  • Idolaters of Mecca made conspiracies against Madina with help of Jews.
  • Indian Idolaters also made conspiracies against Pakistan with help of Israel.
Fatah-e- Mecca and Fatah-e-Hind:
  • Muslims of Madina defeated idolaters of Mecca and conquered Mecca.
  • Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) says Pakistan will also conquer India in Ghazwa-e-Hind.
  • After Fatah-e-Mecca Muslims rose as superpower.
  • Insha’Allah after Fatah-e-Hind Muslims of Pakistan will rise as superpower.

They use following Hadiths to prove Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلامor his force will emerge from Pakistan, India or Afghanistan …

Hadith about cool breeze from Hind:

Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlavi (ra) mentioned a Hadith, referenced by Al-Tibrani-Al-Aust (الطبرانيالأوسط), Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) said,

"I am Arab, but Arab is not in me and I am not in Hind but Hind is in me"

میں عرب ہوں, لیکن عرب مجھ میں نہیں اور میں ہند میں نہیں لیکن ہند مجھ میں ہے

They claim Allama Iqbal used a part of this Hadith in his couplet of Bang-e-Dra.
The House from which the world had heard Tauhid’s tune (Doctrine of Oneness of God)
From where the Arabian Leader (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) had felt cool breeze

They claim Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) feel cool breeze from Hind but actually this is saying of Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام). The text is found in Mustadrak Al-Haakim as a saying of Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام);

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما ، قال : قال علي بن أبي طالب : أطيب ريح في الأرض الهند

Ibn Abbas (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) said, Ali (علیہ السلام) said:

"I feel cool breeze from Hind."

Mustadrak Al-Haakim Hadith 3954. Hakim said, 'This Hadith is Sahih on the conditions of [Sahih] Muslim [3995]’.

Here's the full narration from Mustadrak with Hakeem's tawtheeq, it also includes about Adam (علیہ السلام):

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الكارزي حدثنا علي بن عبد العزيز حدثنا حجاج بن منهال حدثنا حماد بن سلمة عن حميد عن يوسف بن مهران عن بن عباس رضى الله تعالى عنهما قال قال علي بن أبي طالب أطيب ريح في الأرض الهند أهبط بها آدم صلى الله عليه وسلم فعلق شجرها من ريح الجنة هذا حديث صحيح على شرط مسلم ولم يخرجاه

Exact and full translation is:

"The best wind on earth is in al-Hind, Adam (علیہ السلام) was sent down with it, and its trees caught some of the wind of paradise."

It doesn't prove that Hind will become center of Islam in future. Middle East is also known as the home of the prophets (pbut) and center of all great Abrahamic religions mentioned in Holy Quran and it will remain center of Islam in future. Hadith, saying of Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام) and poetry of Allam Iqbal are only relating significance of India with descendant of Prophet Adam (علیہ السلام) and mass conversion of people of India from polytheism to monotheism.

Hadiths about Khorasan:

These writers claim that Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will come from east region of Khorasan which is Afghanistan and Pakistan (AfPak) with an army carrying black flags to invade Constantinople and Jerusalem. See article Black Banners From Khurasan (Afghanistan) To Jerusalem. These writers use following Hadiths for their claim…

Ahmad, Nu'aym ibn Hammad, al-Hakim and Abu Nu'aym narrated from Thawban (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) that he said: "The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

"When you see the black banners have come forward from Khorasan, then go to them even if you have to crawl over ice, for among them is Allah's khalifah, the Mahdi."

Al-Hasan ibn Sufyan and Abu Nu'aym narrated from Thawban (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) that he said: "The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

"The black banners will come from the east, with hearts like iron bars. So whoever hears of them, let him go to them and give them bay'ah, even if he must crawl over ice."

Narrated by Abdur Rehman Al-Jarshi that I heard companion of dear Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)  Hazrat Amr Bin Marra Al-jamli (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) that Dear Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“Surely Black Flag will appear from the Khorasan until the people will tie their horses with the Olive Trees between Bait-e-Lahya and Harasta. We asked are there any Olive trees between these places. He said, ‘If there isn’t then soon it will grow so that those people will come and tie their horses there.’”

[Ref: Kitab-al-Fitan Page 215. Also at Page 108 in the book “Islam main Imam Mahdi ka Tasawer” by Maulana Professor Muhammad Yousaf Khan, Jamia Ashrafia Lahore, Pakistan]

Thawban 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 black banners will come out of the east...' 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.'"

This hadith is reported in Sunan Ibn Majah vol 3 number 4084 in ‘Kitab al-Fitan, Baab Kharuj al-Mahdi' and 'Mustadrak' al-Hakim. Hakim classified it as saheeh on the conditions set by al-Bukhari and Muslim and al-Dhahabi agreed. Ibn Kathir wrote about it in his 'al-Nihaya (al-Fitan wa al-Malahim)' that its isnaad is 'qawii' (strong). al-Albani considers some of the chains as unacceptable, but writes the hadith is correct in meaning without the addition, 'he is the Khalifah of Allah, the Mahdi.' He rates the isnaad of Ibn Majah from 'Alqama from Ibn Mas'ud as hasan which does not have the words, 'khalifa-tullah.' He then goes on to discuss why this addition is not acceptable. ('Silsilah al-Ahadeeth al-Da'eefah wa al-Maudu'a', vol 1, p. 195-198, Hadith #85)

Will Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) be among them?

According to they claim the Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) is among force of east. If we analyze all hadiths carefully then we see this is not the case. These hadiths clearly say that find Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) when black banners come forward from Khorasan. Above Hadiths don’t state that Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will come from Khorasan along them.

Hadiths about Shuayb ibn Saleh (Mansoor) and Banu Hashim also do not state that the Mahdi is among them. They describe the same situation. They will defeat the cavalry of the sufyani in Khorasan and when they settle in Kufah the Mahdi (علیہ السلام) appears in holy city Mecca. Following Hadiths clearly state that black banners from east will come to Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام).

He also narrated from al-Hasan, that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) mentioned a tribulation that his household would encounter:

"Until Allah sends a black banner from the east; whoever helps them, Allah will help him, and whoever lets them down, Allah will let him down; until they COME TO A MAN whose name is like my name, so He will make him their ruler, and Allah will help him and grant him victory."

He also narrated from Abu Ja'far (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) that he said:

"The black banners that come out from Khurasan will settle at al-Kufah. WHEN the Mahdi APPEARS in Makkah, they WILL SEND the bay'ah TO HIM."

Narrated by Abdullah bin Masood (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) that Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“A Nation will come from the east with black flags and they will ask for some “Khayr” (because of them being needy) but the people will not give them, then, they will fight and win over those people (who did not give them what they asked). Now the people will give them what they asked for but they will not accept it until they will HAND IT OVER to a person from my progeny who will fill this earth with justice just as it was previously filled with oppression and tyranny. So if anyone of you finds this nation then you must join them even if you have to crawl over ice.”

(Al-Asha'ah, Page 240)

Above hadith clearly states that Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be not among them but they will help him and give bay'ah (oath) to him.

Are Afghanistan and Pakistan (AfPak) Khorasan?

The ancient Khorasan was the last eastern province of the Persian Empire. Khorasan means the “land of the sunrise” in Persian. Khorasan in its proper sense comprised principally the cities of Mashhad, Nishapur and Sabzevar (now in northeastern Iran), Balkh, Herat and Taloqan (now in Afghanistan), Merv, Nisa and Abiward (now in southern Turkmenistan), and Samarqand and Bukhara (now in Uzbekistan). Some believe that at certain times Khorasan covered a wider area, which included parts of Transoxiana, Soghdiana, Sistan, and extended to the boundaries of the Indian subcontinent [Wikipedia]. At time of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), Khorasan region was included east area of Caspian Sea, west south of river Amu Darya, Transoxania (Tajikistan, Uzbekistan etc) and cities Ar-Ray (Iran) and Taloqan (Afghanistan)These areas are also referred in Hadiths and by Islamic scholars for Khorasan region.

Ibn Khaldun and al-Qurtubi record:

“Hazrat Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will come from the Mashriq (the East), Khorasan (the area to the west of the Caspian Sea) and the Amu Darya (these being regions inhabited by the Turks).”

(Macdonald, Encyclopedia of Islam, 7:478)

Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“Pity poor Taloqan. At that place are treasures of Allah. These are not of gold and silver, but consist of people who have recognized Allah as they should have. They are the Mahdi's servants.”

(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi `Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 59) (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p.59)

Hadis Al-Mahdiyul Muntazar:

"Good for Al Taloqan! Surely, for Allah in it are treasures, not of gold or silver but men who know Allah through truthful knowledge and they will support Al Mahdi at the end of Time."

Following the same narrative chain, Al-Baqir narrated the following on the authority of Jabir:

“[Allah Almighty has a treasure in Taloqan; it is of neither gold nor silver but consists of twelve thousand (men) in Khorasan, having “Ahmad Ahmad” for emblem. They will be led by a Hashemite young man riding a gray mule and wearing a red headband. I can almost see him crossing the Euphrates; should you hear of his coming, rush to him even if you have to crawl over the snow.]”

Narrated 'Ali son of Abu Talib:

"The Prophet said, 'A man named al-Harith son of Hirath will come from Transoxania (Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, southern Kyrgyzstan and southwest Kazakhstan). His army will be led by a man named Mansoor. He will be pave the way for and establish the government of the family of Muhammad, just as the Quraysh established the government of the Messenger of Allah. Every believer will be obliged to support them.'"

Al-Harith son of Hirath; Mansoor Ali said,

"The Prophet said, ‘A man named al-Harith son of Hirath will come from Transoxania [Central Asia] His army will be led by a man named Mansoor. He will be pave the way for and establish the government of the family of Muhammad, just as the Quraysh established the government of the Messenger of Allah.Every believer will be obliged to support them.’” (Abu-Dawud.)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "The Hour will not be established till you fight a nation wearing hairy shoes, and till you fight the Turks, who will have small eyes, red faces and flat noses; and their faces will be like flat shields. And you will find that the best people are those who hate responsibility of ruling most of all till they are chosen to be the rulers. And the people are of different natures: The best in the pre-lslamic period are the best in Islam. A time will come when any of you will love to see me rather than to have his family and property doubled."

One of Hazrat Mahdi's Names Will Be ''THE LION' – Hz. Mehdi’nin İsimlerinden Biri “ARSLAN” Olacaktır

“Hazrat Messiah, Son of David; Mahdi, represented with a lion figure is mentioned in Zohar, commentary of Torah. It is believed to be from Hazrat Abraham’s period and Hazrat Mahdi is represented with a lion figure. The lion clawing, that represents Hazrat Mahdi.

In Torah, “He swears by that truth,” King Messiah Mahdi “He is a lion and he who is known as the lion is loving.” “His name is Lion, but he is very loving, he says” is mentioned. “Morning describes the compassion that refers to Messiah [Mahdi].The Gospel says “you lie down till morning, until Messiah [Mahdi], son of David, who is the light of compassion and is called the lion emerges in the morning.” The dawn of Islam, insha’Allah.

Our Prophet says

“A man (Hazrat Mahdi will appear from Transoxania,” What is Transoxania? The place where the Mahdi’s ancestors lived. The Caucasus region, region where Turks live. “He will be called Al-Haris ibn al-Harras.” Haris, meaning Lion, son of the lion, in other words.” 

Esteemed Adnan Oktar, 27 April 2012 A9 TV

"MAN CALLED AL-HARITH IBN HARRATH (LION) WILL COME FORTH FROM MA WARA AN-NAHR (TRANSOXANA). His army will be led by a man called Mansur who will establish or consolidate things for Muhammad's family as Quraysh consolidated them for the Messenger of Allah (saas). Every believer must help him."

(Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 36, 4277;Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib;At-Taj al-jami' lil 'usul fi ahadith al-Rasul, Mansur 'Ali Nasif, Vol. 5, p. 617)
* Haris means lion.

“O Master of believers, tell us about Hazrat Mahdi (as).” And the Master of believers said"... HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS A WELL-PREPARED, VICTORIOUS LION WITH AN EXTENSIVE IMPACT..."

(Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, Collected by: Muhammad Baqir Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 184)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "The Hour will not be established till you fight with the Khudh and the Kirman (Province in Iran) from among the non-Arabs. They will be of red faces, flat noses and small eyes; their faces will look like flat shields, and their shoes will be of hair."

Al Hasan Al Basri said:

"A man of medium stature will come from Ar-Ray. He will be dark and from the children of Tamim -- a Wasaj, named Shuayb son of Salih with four thousand men. Their clothes will be white and Banners black, and at his front is the Mahdi. He meets no one that he does not defeat and scatter."

Above Hadith is clearly indicating that black banners will come from city Ar-Ray of southern Khorasan which is not in Pakistan neither in Afghanistan but in Iran. See Wikipedia Ray, South Khorasan. There is another city Rey near Tehran and Caspian Sea in Iran.

Mughal Emperor Babur wrote in his memoirs that Indians used to call all non-Indians as Khorasanis. Regarding the location of Khorasan, it is written: "On the road between Hindustan and Khorasan, there are two great marts: the one Kabul, the other Kandahar." i.e. these cities were not part of Khorasan as they are present in way to Khorasan.

In modern day world the ancient Khorasan is divided into five central Asian countries Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Some Pakistani scholars claim little tribal area in northern Pakistan is also part of Khorasan region but at time of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and Caliphate major area of Pakistan is called Sindh, Taank and Kashmir. Historical any area of Pakistan was not part of Khorasan.

Region Sindh is also referred in following Hadiths of Ghawa-e-Hind.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) says that my intimate friend Hadhrat Muhammad (Sall-Allaho-'Alayhe-Wasallam) told me that:

“In this Ummah, the troops would be headed towards SINDH & hind”

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 (علیہ السلام) in Syria”.

Who are Khorasanis?

People of Khorasan are Persian and Turkic people. Pashtun are basically Persian ethnic group lived in east of Persian Empire. Wikipedia says "Early precursors to some of the Pashtuns may have been old Iranian tribes that spread throughout the eastern Iranian plateau. According to the Russian scholar Yu. V. Gankovsky, the Pashtuns probably began as a "union of largely East-Iranian tribes which became the initial ethnic stratum of the Pashtun ethnogenesis, dates from the middle of the first millennium CE and is connected with the dissolution of the Epthalites (White Huns) confederacy." He proposes Kushan-o-Ephthalite origin for Pashtuns but others draw a different conclusion. According to Abdul Hai Habibi some oriental scholars hold that the second largest Pasthun tribe, the Ghilzais, are the descendants of a mixed race of Hephthalite and Pakhtas who have been living in Afghanistan since the Vedic Aryan period". For detail see Pashtun People and Ethnic groups in Afghanistan in Wikipedia. Today Pashtun people live in Khorasan in minority like in Iranian provenances North Khorasan and South Khorasan, cities Balkh, Herat and Taloqan of Afghanistan.

Other ethnic group lives in Khorasan is Khorasani Turks. Qizilbash are Khorasani Turkic-speaking people inhabiting part of northeastern Iran, and in the neighboring regions of Turkmenistan up to beyond the Amu Darya River; and speak the Khorasani Turkic, and live in the North Khorasan, Razavi Khorasan and Golestan provinces of Iran. See Khorasani Turks in Wikipedia.

Persian People 

Turkic people

The Turkic peoples are a collection of ethnic groups that live in northern, eastern, central and western Asia, northwestern China and parts of eastern Europe. See Turkic People in Wikipedia.

Many other ethnic groups were Turkified like Turkic-Mongol whole ruled vast area. See Turco-Mongol in Wikipedia.

Mughal were also Turkic-Mongol who ruled over India for 330 years. See Mughal Tribe and Mughal Empire in Wikipedia.

Mongol people were also Turkified just like people of Anatolian, Balkan, Caucasian and Middle East people were Turkified. Turkification is a process of cultural or political change in which anyone can adopt politics or culture of Turkic people and become Turk. For detail see Turkification in Wikipedia.

Turkish Islamic Union:

Turkish Islamic Union is a Islamic Union which will not be an arbitrary, bureaucratic union. It will not be based on oppression. It will exist to build world peace, not to engage in enmity or take revenge or as a threatening element. Through this union, members of all faiths will be able to worship freely and visit all those sites that are sacred to their particular faith, while their possessions, lives and honor will be under the protection of the Turkish-Islamic Union.

Under this union, unbelievers and the irreligious will also live in peace and be free to express their opinions. It will not based on any ethnic group but Turkification and modernization of corrupt political system under leadership of Turkey. For detail see A Call For Turkish Islamic Union.

Hadiths about Constantinople:

Some writers used following hadith to prove that people of Khorasan are Pashtun or Talibaan as they believe they are lost tribe of Bani Israel as mentioned in a research paper The Bilad-e-Khurasan in Making but history doesn't prove this claim.

Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“You have heard of the city, one side of which is inclined and the other is on the coast (Constantinople). They said: Yes, Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Thereupon he said: The Last Hour will not come until 70,000 people from the children of Israel attack it. When they land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor shower arrows but will only say: ‘There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest,’ and one side of it will fall. Thawr (one of the narrators) said: I think that he said: The area on the coast. Then they will say for the second time: ‘There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest,’ and the other side will also fall. They will say: ‘There is no god but Allah is the Greatest,’ and the gates will be opened for them and they will enter. They will be collecting spoils of war and distributing them among themselves when a noise will be heard and it will be said: Verily, the Dajjal has come. Thus they will leave everything there and turn to (confront) him.”

(Sahih Muslim Book No: 40 No: 6979)

They concluded Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will attack Constantinople (Istanbul) with help of Talibaan (Pashtun) and conquered this city as Pashtun are belonged to lost tribe of Bani Israel. If we read Hadith carefully then it is clearly stated that children of Israel will be helper of Imam Mahdi who will capture Istanbul spiritually and peacefully by preaching religion without using weapons. They will preach people about existence and greatness of Allah. They will defeat materialistic and atheist ideologies like Darwinism and Communism intellectually. They will correct first faith of people of Constantinople. Who are these people? They are many (70,000 means many in Arabic) helpers of Imam Mahdi. They will by Sayyid and Sharif descendants from Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام) and they are also Israelite.

According to Jewish belief, even if one is a convert, the fact that a person has a Jewish bloodline from a mother makes that person of Jewish origin. Blessed mother 'Fatima bint Asad ibn Hashim' of Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام) was daughter of Jewish princes ZAHNA whose father was Hofnai 32nd EXILARCH KAPHNAI of Baghdad, descendant of King David or Prophet Daud (علیہ السلام) of Jerusalem, ruled 560-581. Her brother, also born to KAPHNAI [in English, sometimes written as Hofnai] is Haninai. Consequently, the sons born to Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام), grandson of the princes ZAHNA, and their descendants are all physically linked to Prophet Daud (علیہ السلام) and are Israelites. See Exilarch in Wikipedia. So descendant of Sayyidina Ali (علیہ السلام) are children of Israel mentioned in above Hadith. They are not Pashtun or Taaliban as people of east or Khorasan are not mentioned in this particular hadith.

Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will resemble those of Children of Israel in appearance:

Following Hadith proves Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be descendant of Prophet Daud (علیہ السلام) as his physical appearance will resemble those of Children of Israel.


 [Abu Abdillah Muhammad bin Yusuf Ganji Shafei, Al-Bayan Fi Akhbar Sahib az-Zaman)

“Hazrat Mahdi's (علیہ السلام) stature and posture resemble those of the People of Israel.”

(Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 36-29.)

“His body is an Israelite one.”

(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 24)

Abdullah bin Harith says:

“HAZRAT MAHDI (علیہ السلام) will rise at the age of forty and will RESEMBLE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL (in terms of appearance).”

(Al-Hawi lil-fatawi, vol. 2, p. 135)

According to Judaic scriptures Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be present in Constantinople.
Just as Moses was brought up in the house of Pharaoh among the enemies of his people, so also will Messiah dwell in the city of Rome*, among the destroyers of his land. [Exodus Rabbah, Chap. I; Tanhuma, Shemoth, 8, and Tazri’a, 8. Cf. also Sanhedrin 19b.]

* Constantinople, the capital city of Roman Empire, was given the name “Nova Roma” in Latin, i.e. “New Rome” by Constantin I in 324.

Just as Moses was raised in the House of Pharaoh in Egypt, so the Messiah will be in Rome. [Kohelet Rabbah, I, 9][ii]

Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi meets Elijah the Prophet and asks, “… Where can I find Mashiach?” Elijah tells him, “Go to the gates* of Rome and there you’ll find him.” [Talmud Sanhedrin 98a]

* 50 gates exist on Constantinople city walls.

"WHEN THE KING MOSHIACH WHO IS IN THE NORTH WIL ARISE, he will come and build the Beis Hamikdash [Masjid of the Prophet Solomon (علیہ السلام)] which is situated in the South."

(Mishnah, Midos 2:1; Jerusalem Talmud, Megillah 1:11)

Let we first examine holy city al-Madīnah al-Munawwarah (first Madina) then try to find which city is actual Madina-e-Sani (second Madina).

Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will never shed blood:



  1. " SubHan Allah". Very enlightening article.
    very good article.

  2. Subhaan Allah, bhai Farooq you have done a great service for all the Muslims.

  3. I added more detail about Pukhton and Turkic people. Also added new information about Turkic Mongol and Turkish Islamic Union.

  4. Azerbaijaan, Kirgystan,Turkemanistaan,Uzbekistan, Tataristan, Countries surroundind Caspian sea are all Turkic nation.

    1. Pakistan is Madina E Sani, it is the army of Khorasan. Pashtuns are not a persian people but an eastern Iranian people and even then the most warlike tribes are Karlani who are adopted Pashtuns from dard races. The ancient land of Pakistan was Indo Scythia and even the many tribal Jaats and other people have Scythian heritage from blood studies. The Huns also were known to have invaded this area. Pakistan means Punjab, Afghania, Kashmir, Eastern Iran, Sindh, Turkarstan, Afghanistan, Balochistan. This land host the highest amount of radicals right now. It host some of the most warlike tribes in the world. The highest honor killing rate on earth mainly due to their scythian heritage since Haryana India also has high amounts of honor killing. When Mughals invaded India they said that you have to go through the bandit of Jaat and Gujjars in the area. A lot of Pakistan is Jaat and Gujjar too. Guns are seen as ornaments in many villages. Parts of southern Afghanistan are also related to Pakistan and so is parts of north India also. The Muslim Gujjars in Shamli were the worst nightmare for the British and literally destroyed them. These areas of India are seen as areas full of martially inclined honor driven people. I've noticed that generally Pakistanis that live in Bradford even after 3 generations are not assimilating in nature. Persians and many Turks in America and Europe are well assimilated with the westerners. This mentality is not mentality that the army of Khorasan would have. One really important discovery was deobandism which was an antiwestern movement that was started in parts of north India to fight the imperial rule that the mentality that westerners were at the time doing by destroyed the Indian moral fabric. We all know that the races of yajuj and majuj are the European Viking and Khazar races that built the western secular usury world today. This is the same judeo Christian fake world that are supporting dajjal and are also trying to westernize the world. The idea of deobandism is south asian because the army of Khorasan was destined to be south asian people not persian and turks at all. We know that if the martial races of south asia united under Islam. They would be a force on the planet since many empires have died at the borders of south asia from Greeks to Russians. It was the polytheist satan brahmim Hindu ways that kept south asia divided into tribal kingdoms. I've noticed in Surrey that Punjabi Jatt Sikhs are also generally violent people too. If they were Muslims they would add to the south asian martial numbers.

    2. According to 1400 years old Hadith and geographical evidences area of Khorasan is Turkic area or Transoxania (Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, southern Kyrgyzstan and southwest Kazakhstan) including Turkic area of northern Afghanistan and northern Iran. Rest of Afghanistan and Iran are not Khorasan. Any part of Pakistan and India is not included in Khorasan. You can not change the geography. You are correct most of Pakistan and Afghanistan are Tribal area having gun culture. Imam Mahdi (as) will be belonged to cultured big city (Medina) and last center of Caliphate means Istanbul.

  5. Added more information about AL-HARITH IBN HARRATH (LION) and Transoxania

  6. Above hadith clearly states that Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) will be not among them but they will help him and give bay'ah (oath) to him.

    hadith refers to the turks and the banner uqab and describes the time moving forward from khorasan til anatolia, other khurasan haidths confirms that the mahdi is among this nation, even as said in this hadith go to them even if you crawl over ice...

    1. Yes sis Imam Mahdi (علیہ السلام) is among this Turkic nation but he will not come from Today's Khorasan, Iran, Afghanistan etc. He will come from Istanbul (Medina - Large City)

    2. Weren't Turks described as small eyes yajuj majuj nations? Khazar Israeli are Turks too.

    3. yajuj majuj are northern nations who colonized whole word and captured all seas, and who killed millions of people in world wars.

  7. right bro. mahdi was/is no time in khorasan he is among people moving forward from khorasan, turkey.
    I was reffering to your comment on that hadith. Between Im a bro and jazakallah for your effort. Truth needs to be spreaded.

  8. Hahahaha, retarded Arab phaggot, you will lose in India, I'll beat the sh/t out of any Arab that steps here.

    1. Racism Does Not Bring Any Benefit to Either the Arab or Non-Arab.

  9. You do know Pashtuns are not a Persian people, they're Eastern Iranian, that too some of them. You do know that ancient Pakistan was Indo Scythia, the Scythians were a warlike nomad people who were haplogroups R1a, Pakistan at the moment has the most armed civilian population in the world. I think Pakistanis are Al Mahdis army.

    1. Movement of Mahdi (as) will be blood less like all movements of Prophets (pbut). He does not require warlike nomad people. Army of Dajjal will be blood thirsty.

  10. Please read the remarks of sir Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid about this article.....

    The fitnah of Harun Yahya - Harun Yahya dismisses Pakistan and end of time hadith
    It is clear that our works have reached Harun Yahya. They are obviously very disturbed.

    His followers believe that he is Imam Mehdi.

    That is why it is critical for them to destroy the spiritual role of Pakistan. His entire analysis is wrong and misguiding and negates the signs of Allah (swt). How can they negate the ahadees of Ghazwa e Hind and Khurasan ???

    These are fitnahs of the end time….

    I have met many of his followers who desperately tried to convince me that he the mehdi and I should do bayt at him J

    They have dangerously twisted the texts of Ahadees to suit their agenda. In The famous Ghazwa e Hind hades of Hazrat abu Huraira, the word Hind has been replaced by Sind !!! This changes the entire concept of Ghazwa e Hind as Sind is Pakistan today !!

    Also, they believe that Iman mehdi (Harun Yahya) will NOT use sword to spread Islam and fight Dajjal but would only love and dua. This is Qadiani concept. Dangerous

    First of all this blog is unofficial and this article is written by me presenting my personal views. It does not represent views of Adnan Oktar. I used links of Adnan Oktar to tell only significance of middle east at End Time and creation of Islamic Union.

    I met with sir Zaid and never convinced him that Adnan Oktar is Imam Mahdi and he should bayat at him. I met him to work with Adnan Oktar's team and Imran Khan for Islam, unity of Muslims and Pakistan.

    In our conversation I talked about hadiths regarding Ghazwa-e-Sindh. He told me that Ghazwa-e-Sindh has already be completed in form of Muhammad bin Qasim. He did not say word "Sindh" is not present in Hadiths.

    We can read that both words "Hind" and "Sind" are present in Hadiths and these hadith are talking about End Time when hundreds of other portents of End Time will also be appeared including appearance of Imam Mahdi (as) and Prophet Isa (as).

    Main objective of this article is that Imam Mahdi (as) will not appear from Pakistan. He will appear from Turkey as told by Shaikh Nazim (ra). It does not mean Adnan Oktar is Imam Mahdi. He never claimed to be Mahdi. I don't know who will be Imam Mahdi. No one can tell this. Imam Mahdi will be one who will complete his three duties which never be done by anyone.

    Insha'Allah Imam Mahdi (as) will come and will bring peace and justice not violence, bloodshed and killing as permuted by sir Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid. I expect Ghazwa-e-Hind will be peaceful like Fatah-e-Macca after coming of Imam Mahdi (as) and Prophet Isa (as), Insha'Allah.



When their Messenger comes
