  1. Introduction: The Wahhabi brand of Kharijite apostasy emerged from Najd. By employing sword, spear, gun, canon and at the cost of death of hundreds of thousands of Muslims gained controlled of great swaths of Arabian Peninsula, thus created the Saudi Kingdom. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) had foretold that Khawarij will emerge from Najd. Wahhabi-ism was the only sect which emerged from Najd and as foretold by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’salam) killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims. For this reason the adherents of Wahhabi brand of Khariji-ism contest the actual location of historical Najd in attempt to justify their movements beliefs and their actions. Their position is that Najd is Iraq because the Khawarij have emerged from Iraq during the Khilafat of Hadhrat Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu).[1] Contrary to this the Muslims believe Najd is due East of Madinah and it comprimises of vast regions surrounding Saudi Wahhabi Kindom’s capital Riyadh. Satan’s Group Will Emerge From Najd: Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) was inovking Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) to bless Yemen and Syria. Someone from the gathering repeatedly requested that he also make dua for Najd.[2] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) ignored these repeated requests for dua and then said: “They said again, "Our Najd as well." On that the Prophet said, "There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the group of Satan." [Bukhari, Book 17, Number 147] Other Ahadith indicate particular direction of East from which the group of Satan will emerge: “Narrated Ibn 'Umar: I heard Allah's Apostle while he was facing the East, saying, "Verily! Afflictions are there, from the direction [of east] will come the group of Satan"[3] [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H213] One Hadith mentions direction of sunrise from where the Satans group is to emerge: “Narrated Salim's father: The Prophet stood up beside the pulpit and said, "Afflictions are there! Afflictions are there, from the side where head of Satan will come out," or said, "...the side of the sun [rise]..." [Bukhari, Book 88, Number 212] One Hadith states Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) pointed toward the direction of Hadhrat Aysha’s house while indicating the direction from which the group of Satan will emerge: “Narrated 'Abdullah: The Prophet stood up and delivered a sermon, and pointing to 'Aisha's house, he said thrice, "Affliction (will appear from) here," and, "from the side, where Satan's head will come out." [Ref: Bukhari, B53, H336] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) was standing beside the pulpit of Masjid of Nabvi hence if he pointed toward Hadhrat Aysha’s (radiallah ta’ala anha) house[4] then he would be pointing toward due East toward the direction of sunrise and toward the historical region of Najd [toward the Saudi capital Riyadh].[5] Methodology Employed To Rectify The Innovation: If it is established that Islam had not spread to Iraq in the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) and Islam had spread in Najd during the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam). And if it is established that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) or the companions made distinction between Iraq and Najd then logicall conclusion would be both of these are two different regions, and not one and the same, nor Najd could be located in Iraq [as some argue that Najd is location in Iraq]. Importantly this would prove that the Najdi companion who requested Prophet (sallallahu alayi was’sallam) to make dua for Najd was not from any part of Iraq [because Islam had not spread that far in life time of Prophet sallallahu alayhi was’sallam]. Loud Najdi With Unkempt Hair Enquires About Islam: A Najdi man with rough hair visited Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) and enquired about bare essentials of Islam about which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) informed him. This Najdi man left saying to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) that he will only perform the compulsory duties and will not perform optional acts of worship. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) said if he holds true to his word then he will successfuly enter paradise.[6] Najdi Thumama Bin Uthal From Banu Hanifah: Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) sent cavalary to Najd to arrest Thumama bin Uthal (radiallah ta’ala anhu) from who was from tribe of Bani Hanifa [residing in Wadi Hanifa] and when they arrested him they tied him to pillars of Masjid Nabvi. This is attested by following Hadith: “The Prophet sent some horsemen to Najd and they brought a man called Thumama bin Uthal from Bani Hanifa. They fastened him to one of the pillars of the mosque.” [Ref: Bukhari, B41, H605] Another Hadith reveals that Thumama bin Uthal (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was a tribal leader [of Banu Hanifa] from Yamama: “It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira who said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent some horsemen to Najd. They captured a man. He was from the tribe of Banu Hanifa and was called Thumama b. Uthal. He was the chief of the people of Yamama.” [Ref: Muslim, B19, H4361] Thumam bin Uthal (radiallah ta’ala anhu) had killed a Muslim prior to his conversion to Islam which became the reason for his arrest, attested by: "What have you got, O Thumama?" He replied,"I have got a good thought, O Muhammad! If you should kill me, you would kill a person who has already killed somebody, and if you should set me free, you would do a favor to one who is grateful, and if you want property, then ask me whatever wealth you want." Next day Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) asked the same question and received the same response upon which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) instructed the companions to release him. Thumama bin Uthal (radiallah ta’ala anhu) took a bath and entered the Masjid and recited: "I testify that None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, and also testify that Muhammad is His Apostle! By Allah, O Muhammad!” [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H658] Note, Al Yamama is in historical Najd which is attested by above quoted Hadith. Incident Of Distribution Of Wat Booty: Ahadith record Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) was distributing a piece of gold sent by Hadhrat Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) amongst: “Al-Aqra' bin Habis Al-Hanzali from the tribe of Mujashi, 'Uyaina bin Badr Al-Fazari, Zaid At-Ta'i who belonged to (the tribe of) Bani Nahban, and 'Alqama bin Ulatha Al-'Amir who belonged to (the tribe of) Bani Kilab.” The Hadith continues: "He (i.e. the Prophet, ) gives the [tribal] chiefs of Najd and does not give us." Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) explained: "I give them so as to attract their hearts (to Islam)." [Ref: Bukhari, B55, H558] "I just wanted to attract and unite their hearts (make them firm in Islam)." [Ref: Bukhari, B93, H527] This establishes that some tribal chiefs of Najd had accepted Islam in the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam). Iraqi’s Had Not Accepted Islam: Many Ahadith record the fixing of Miqat for Hajj and Umrah.Companion Zahid bin Jabair narrated in a Hadith: “I went to visit 'Abdullah bin 'Umar at his house which contained many tents made of cotton cloth and these were encircled with Suradik (part of the tent). I asked him from where, should one assume Ihram for Umra. He said, "Allah's Apostle had fixed as Miqat Qarn for the people of Najd, Dhul-Hulaifa for the people of Medina, and Al-Juhfa for the people of Sham." [Ref: Bukhari, B26, H597] Hadith records that people of Iraq had not accepted Islam when Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) fixed the places of wearing Ihram for pilgrims of Hajj: "The Prophet fixed Qarn as the Miqat (for assuming the Ihram) for the people of Najd, and Al-Juhfa for the people of Sham, and Dhul-Hulaifa for the people of Medina." Ibn `Umar added, "I heard this from the Prophet, and I have been informed that the Prophet said, 'The Miqat for the Yemenites is Yalamlam.' "When Iraq was mentioned, he said, "At that time it was not a Muslim country." [Ref: Bukhari, B92, H443] When the Iraqi cities of Basrah and Kufa were conquered then Hadhrat Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) informed the people that Dhat Al Irq was Miqat for Iraqi’s: “When these two towns (Basra and Kufa) were captured, the people went to 'Umar and said, "O the Chief of the faithful believers! The Prophet fixed Qarn as the Miqat for the people of Najd, it is beyond our way and it is difficult for us to pass through it." He said, "Take as your Miqat a place situated opposite to Qarn on your usual way. So, he fixed Dhatu-Irq (as their Miqat)." [Ref: Bukhari, B26, H606] Note Hadhrat Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) fixed the Dhat Al Irq as Miqat for Iraq. This establishes that Iraq and Najd are two different regions, not one and the same, nor one being part of another. Importantly it establishes that people of Najd had accepted Islam hence the need for designating place of Miqat for Najd arose in the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) but Iraq nor any part of it was not under Islamic control hence Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) did not fix any Miqat for Iraq.[7] When cities of Iraq came under Islamic rule the then Dhat Al Irq was fixed as Miqat for Iraqi’s.[8] Raid On Banu Ghatafan In Najd: Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) lead a raiding party targetting tribe of Ghatafan in Najd at a place called Dhat Al Irq.[9] On this expedition the popular incident of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) being threatened by polytheist took place.[10] No fighting took place[11] because Bani Ghatafan were compeletly taken by surprise hence they fled leaving their women and children. From this compaign the participants benefitted greatly each receiving eleven camels each and a extra camel as bonus, including sheeps: “… the Messenger of Allah sent an expedition to Najd, and I (also) went with the troops. We got camels and goats as spoils of war, and our share amounted to twelve camels per head, and the Messenger of Allah gave an extra camel to each of us.” [Ref: Muslim, B19, H4332] Musailma the Claimed Prophet-hood From Najd: Musailma the Liar came to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) with members of his tribe and said that he will follow Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) if he is made the Khalif after departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) from this world. Upon this Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) said to him that he would not give him even if he asked for leaf of date-palm tree. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) warned him that he cannot escape the fate which Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has destined for him. After which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) revealed that he believes Musailma maybe the person whom he saw in the dream. Indicating that Musailma may claim Prophet-hood after the departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) from this world.[12] Musailma the Liar claimed Prophethood during the Khilafat of Hadhrat Abu Bakr as-Sadeeq (radiallah ta’ala anhu).[13] In the dream Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) saw a dream in which he saw he is wearing two bracelets and the dream was interpreted to mean: “[…] I interpreted the two bracelets as symbols of two liars who would appear after me. And so one of them was Al-Ansi and the other was Musailama Al-Kadhdhab from Al Yamama." [Ref: Bukhari, B56, H817] Al Yamama is [East of Madinah] in Najd which is established from the following Hadith: “Allah's Messenger sent horsemen to Najd and they arrested and brought a man called Thumama bin Uthal, the chief of Yamama, and they fastened him to one of the pillars of the Mosque. When Allah's Apostle came up to him; he asked, "What have you to say, O Thumama?" He replied, …” [Ref: Bukhari, B41, H604] The Summary Of Established Points: Ahadith establish that Najd was known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) and to companions. They identified Najd and Iraq as two different regions, each having its own Miqat (i.e. place of wearing Ihram). Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) and companions had contact with people of Najd and engaged the people of Najd in combat. Evidence also establishes that people from Najd had accepted Islam in the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam), including the leader of Banu Hanifa, Thumama bin Uthal (radiallah ta’ala anhu) as well as leaders of other tribes. On contrary there is no evidence which suggests that inhabitants of Iraq had come under Islamic rule during life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) nor there is any proof of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) fighting any battles in any region of Iraq which could be interpreted with aid of LOGIC[14] that Najd is in Iraq or entire Iraq is Najd. The Historical Region Of Najd: Here are some maps found via google which point to general location of Najd in Arabian Peninsula. Najd is East of Madinah and to be precise East of region of Hijaz.[15] Note, the above map indicates the region of Hijaz, spelt alternatively as Hejaz. The Sect Of Disbelief Emerges From East: This sect was the foretold group/sect of Satan about whom Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) said: “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The main source of disbelief is in the East. Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the owners of horses and camels, and those bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; …" [Ref: Bukhari, B54, H520] In another Hadith same is stated: “Ibn Umar reported that Allah's Messenger came out from the house of 'A'isha and said: It would be from this side that there would appear the summit of unbelief, viz. where appear the horns of Satan, meaning East.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6941] Note that in another Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) is stated to have pointed from the pulpit to the house of Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha) to indicate the direction from where this group would emerge, hadith follows: “Narrated 'Abdullah: The Prophet stood up and delivered a sermon, and pointing to 'Aisha's house, he said thrice, "Affliction (will appear from) here," and, "from the side, where Satan's group will come out." [Ref: Bukhari, B53, H336] If one points from the pulpit of Masjid Nabvi then he is almost directly pointing toward Uyanah the birth place of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and Uyaynah then the mission control of Wahhabi sect. Conclusion: Najd for which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) refused to make dua is not Iraq nor located in Iraq but it is a region in Arabian Peninsula. Iraq was known by it’s modern name Iraq in the time of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) and Najd was known by its name Najd. Hence it is quite clear from this fact that they were both two different regions. Najd is East of Madinah and it’s inhabitants were Muslims. Iraq is North East of Madinah and Iraq was not under the rule of Islam nor its inhabitants accepted Islam. This is established by the fact that the Miqat for Iraq was fixed as Dhat Al Irq when Islamic state had controlled the regions of Basrah/Kufa. As a result Islam was introduced to the people of Iraq and its inhabitants began to accept Islam then need for fixing Miqat for Iraq arose. Inhabitants of Sham [Greater Syria], Yemen, Najd accepted Islam hence the Miqat for them was fixed even though the inhabitants of Sham did not live under rule of Islamic state until Hadhrat Abu Bakr’s (radiallah ta’ala anhu) Khilafat. This strenths the position that inhabitants of Iraq had not accepted Islam in the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) hence Miqat was not fixed for Iraqi’s. Combined with historical evidence and maps which point out region of Najd we the Muslims truthfully can believe all this evidence establishes the position of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat that Najd is East of Madinah region surrounding Saudi Wahhabi capital city of Riyadh. Exactly from direction of East group of Satan emerged in the form of Wahhabism and committed great excess. Declared Muslims as Mushrikeen [i.e. polytheistic disbelievers] worst then the polytheistic disbelievers of Prophet’s (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) time. Then as foretold by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) this group of Satan [under the guidance and leadership of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab] unsheathed their swords and slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Muslims. This was carried out under the pretext that these people are worst Kafirs then Kafirs who lived during the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) hence killing them is permissible. The only sect to emerge from Najd and who accused Muslims of committing major Shirk and then killed Muslims was Wahhabism. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) said: “It was narrated from Ibn 'Umar that: The Prophet said: "Do not revert to disbelievers after I am gone, striking the necks of one another (killing one another)." [Ref: Nisa’i, B37, H4130] This clarifies the position of Muslims regarding the Wahhabi sect and his followers. This who succeeded the first generation they are from Ahlul Kufr because Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) declared this group to be Ahlul Kufr without condition. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razavi Footnotes: - [1] Khawarij did indeed emerge from Iraq during the Khilafat of Hadhrat Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) but this is no excuse to declare Iraq is Najd. - [2] “Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen." The People said, "And also on our Najd." He said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen." The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! And also on our Najd." I think the third time the Prophet said, "There (in East) is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the head of Satan." [Bukhari, Book 88, Number 214] - [3] “Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: I heard Allah's Apostle on the pulpit saying, "Verily, afflictions (will start) from here," pointing towards the east, " from the direction of where the head of Satan will come out." [Ref: Bukhari, B56, H714] “Ibn Umar reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying while pointing his hands towards the east: The turmoil would appear from this side; verily, the turmoil would appear from this side (he repeated it thrice) from where the the horns of Satan will apear.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6942] - [4] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) is burried in the house of Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha) hence from modern perspective he was pointing toward where his blessed body was laid to rest after he departed from earthly life. - [5] Please refer to the following article for the maps of Najd to have clear perspective: The Region Of Najd Depicted On Old And New Maps. - [6] “A man from Najd with unkempt hair came to Allah's Apostle and we heard his loud voice but could not understand what he was saying, till he came near and then we came to know that he was asking about Islam. Allah's Apostle said, "You have to offer prayers perfectly five times in a day and night (24 hours)." The man asked, "Is there any more (praying)?" Allah's Apostle replied, "No, but if you want to offer the Nawafil prayers (you can)." Allah's Apostle further said to him: "You have to observe fasts during the month of Ramad, an." The man asked, "Is there any more fasting?" Allah's Apostle replied, "No, but if you want to observe the Nawafil fasts (you can.)" Then Allah's Apostle further said to him, "You have to pay the Zakat (obligatory charity)." The man asked, "Is there any thing other than the Zakat for me to pay?" Allah's Apostle replied, "No, unless you want to give alms of your own." And then that man retreated saying, "By Allah! I will neither do less nor more than this." Allah's Apostle said, "If what he said is true, then he will be successful (i.e. he will be granted Paradise)." [Ref: Bukhari, B2, H44] - [7] Some maps reveal that during the end of Prophet’s (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) life the North Eastern border of Islamic rule was connecting to the Western border of Iraq but others indicate that at the death of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) the Islamic rule had in South far had spread into Yemen, in North as far as Egyptian border and in East Islamic state controlled some areas of Najd but not entire. On other hand the maps reveal that at the death of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) the Islamic rule had spread all over the Arabian Peninsula. Ruling over Yemen, Oman, Najd, Hijaz and its border connected with Iraq. What ever the reason for this difference but both maps indicate that Islamic rule had not spread far as Iraq in life of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam). - [8] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) instructed the Muslims to follow his Sunnah and Sunnah of rightly guided Khulafah (i.e. Successors - Leaders). Hadhrat Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was a Momin and the Amir of Momineen, the Khalifah of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) hence we Muslims have to follow his Sunnah. - [9] “We went out with the Messenger of Allah to Najd. When we reached Dhat ar-Riqa at Nakhl he met a group of the tribe of Ghatafan. The narrator then reported the tradition to the same effect, but his version is other than that of Haywah. He added to the words "when he bowed along with those who were with him and prostrated" the words "when they stood up, they retraced their footsteps to the rows of their companions". He did not mention the words "their back was towards the qiblah." [Ref: Abu Dawood, B4, H1237] - [10] While Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) was sleeping under a tree a polytheist sneaked upon Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam), drew the sword of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) which was hanging on the tree and threatened to kill Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam). The account is narrated in the following Hadith: “… we came to a shady tree which -we left for him [to rest]one of the polytheists came there and, seeing the sword of the Messenger hanging by a free. took it up. Drew it from the scabbard and said to the Messenger of Allah: Are you afraid of Me? He (the Holy Prophet) said: No. He again said: Who would protect you from me? He said: Allah will protect me from you. The Companions of the Messenger of Allah threatened him. He sheathed the sword and hung it up.” [Ref: Muslim, B4, H1830] Another Hadith from Riyadh as-Saliheen narrates another account of the event: “… the polytheist asked: "Who will protect you from me?'' Messenger of Allah replied, "Allah.'' As soon as he said this, the sword fell down from his hand and Messenger of Allah catching the sword, asked him, "Who will protect you from me.'' He said, "Please forgive me.'' Messenger of Allah said, "On condition you testify that there is none worthy of worship but Allah and that I am His Messenger.'' He said, "No, but I promise you that I shall not fight against you, nor shall I be with those who fight with you". The Prophet let him go. He then went back to his companions and said: "I have come to you from one of the best of mankind." [Ref: Riyad as-Saliheen, B1, H78] - [11] “Jabir added: "The Prophet set out for the battle of Dhat-ur-Riqa' at a place called Nakhl and he met a group of people from Ghatafan, but there was no clash (between them); the people were afraid of each other and the Prophet offered the two raka'at of the Fear prayer." Narrated Salama: "I fought in the company of the Prophet on the day of al-Qarad." [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H449] - [12] “Narrated Ibn Abbas: Musailama-al-Kadhdhab (i.e. the liar) came in the life-time of Allah's Apostle with many of his people (to Medina) and said, "If Muhammad makes me his successor, I will follow him." Allah's Apostle went up to him with Thabit bin Qais bin Shams; and Allah's Apostle was carrying a piece of a date-palm leaf in his hand. He stood before Musailama (and his companions) and said, "If you asked me even this piece (of a leaf), I would not give it to you. You cannot avoid the fate you are destined to, by Allah. If you reject Islam, Allah will destroy you. I think that you are most probably the same person whom I have seen in the dream." Abu Huraira told me that Allah's Apostle; said, "While I was sleeping, I saw (in a dream) two gold bracelets round my arm, and that worried me too much. Then I was instructed divinely in my dream, to blow them off and so I blew them off, and they flew away. I interpreted the two bracelets as symbols of two liars who would appear after me. And so one of them was Al-Ansi and the other was Musailama Al-Kadhdhab from Al-yamama." [Ref: Bukhari, B56, H817] - [13] “Narrated Qatada: We do not know of any tribe amongst the 'Arab tribes who lost more martyrs than Al-Ansar, and they will have superiority on the Day of Resurrection. Anas bin Malik told us that seventy from the Ansar were martyred on the day of Uhud, and seventy on the day (of the battle of) Bir Ma'una, and seventy on the day of Al-yamama. Anas added, "The battle of Bir Ma'una took place during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle and the battle of Al-yamama, during the caliphate of Abu Bakr, and it was the day when Musailamah Al-Kadhdhab was killed." [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H405] - [14] People of innovation employ LOGIC to make Najd into Iraq. Logic is simple, Satan’s group will emerge from Iraq and Najd according to Ahadith. Satan’s group emerged from Iraq during the Khilfat of Hadhrat Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) hence Iraq is Najd. If Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) had fought in Iraq and the Ahadith had recorded Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) fought in Iraq like the Ahadith about Najd exist. Then with similiar logic employed om previous example they could convert Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) fighting in Najd to meaning Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) fighting in Iraq. - [15] Generally accepted view is Hijaz consists of regions surrounding cities of Makkah and Madinah. The exact region of historical Hijaz have been lost. Through out ages the identity of Hijaz has changed but my gut instinct is that Saudi Kingdoms Hijaz maybe actual Hijaz of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam).
