Hadith # 3
HADHRAT ABU HURAIRAH’s 2nd HADEES:-
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.
