Hadith Distortion Series: Modern Arabian Province Of Najd Is Not The Historical Najd.


Recommended Posts

Introduction:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was making dua for Yemen and Shaam. The inhabitants of Najd requested Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) to also mention Najd in his dua. Twice Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) ignored their request and third time informed them the group of Satan will emerge from Najd, hence he cannot make dua for Najd.[1] Najd is located exact east of Madinah comprimising vast region around Saudi capital Riyadh. The Wahhabi brand of Kharijism emerged from exact east of Madinah. Founder of Wahhabi branch of Kharjism Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab at-Tamimi was born in Uyaynah about 70 km northwest of Riyadh. After his return from Iraq he made Al Dirriyah his missionary centre. From there with aid of Al Saud family’s millitary muscle he began to raid and kill Muslims on grounds that muslims in Arabian Peninsula are polytheist – worst then polytheists who lived at the time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam).[2] Followers of this group of Shaytaan have invented new Najd to fit the Hadith of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) in a vain attempt to discredit the charge that Wahhabism is a new manifestation of Kharijism which emerged from Najd.

Belief Of Khawarij and Belief Of Muslims:

In order to fend off criticism levelled against Wahhabism the proponents of this Khariji sect have argued: 1) the Najd of Prophet’s (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) time is not the modern Najd, 2) and Najd known to Prophet’s (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is Iraq or intended meaning of Najd was Iraq. Contrary to Wahhabi claim the Muslims believe Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is in East of Madinah and at very least compromises of large region surrounding Saudi capital Riyadh. We also believe that Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and his Khariji minions emerged from Najd and they are the group of Satan referred in the Hadith by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam).

Establishing What Is Fundamental Requirement For The Case Of Ahle Sunnat:

There is no need to figure out the entire historical region of Najd because it will not serve any serious objective. Aim would be to establish – Najd; known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) included region surrounding Saudi capital of Riyadh. With this the position of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat will be established that Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is in east of Madinah and Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and his group emerged from this very Najd. Note the very reason the Wahhabi’s believe Iraq is Najd is because they wish to establish the Wahhabi sect did not originate from a place about which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said group of Satan will emerge from it. So if it can establish Wahhabi sect originated from a region of Arabia which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and his companions considered Najd it will defeat the very purpose of shift of Najd from Arabia to Iraq.

The Najd of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam):

Hadith records Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) sent cavalry to capture Thumama bin Uthal from Najd who was chief of Banu Hanifa, Hadith: “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle sent some horse men 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, B8, H458] Another Hadith states he was chief of Al Yamama: “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger sent horsemen to Najd and they arrested and brought a man called Thumama bin Uthal, the chief of Yamama,[3] 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, "I have good news, O Muhammad!" Abu Huraira narrated the whole narration which ended with the order of the Prophet "Release him!" [Ref: Bukhari, B41, H604] From this Hadith it is established that Bani Hanifa are situated in the region of Al Yamama and Al Yamama is in Najd. Now if we can locate Al Yamama we have at least discovered a part of Najd which was known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam).

Al Yamama And Bani Hanifa East Of Madinah:

It is apparent from last map that Najd is in direction of East from Madinah. The Saudi capital Riyadh can be seen in the last map spelt Riad and underneath it Yemamah. In some maps location of Banu Hanifa is also indicated making it easier for the readers to discern the reality of historical Najd. Hadith states Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) sent cavalry into Najd in the region of Al Yamama to arrest a man from Bani Hanifa. From the maps it is evident that cavalry travelled from Madinah to region surrounding Saudi capital Riyadh to arrest this man. Hence at very least region surrounding Riyadh is part of Al Yamama which is part of Najd.

Reasonable Assumption Regarding Al Yamama And Najd:

The Hadith which mentions Najd as place of origin of group of Satan also has mentioned of Sham and Yemen. These two are major regions made up of large swaths of land and not ten mud hut house villages. In context of this it would be reasonable to assume that Najd also a vast region and not ten mud hut house village. So here is a generously purposed Najd and in it Al Yamama.

post-14098-0-84761000-1408813706_thumb.jpg

The green circle represents generously small Al Yamama of Prophet Muhammad’s (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) era and the pink one is to depict generously small Najd known to Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). The birth place of Shaykh an-Najd Al Uyayna and his missionary center Al Dirriyah are even within the boundaries of generously small Al Yamama and even more generously small region of Najd. This establishes Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is in east of Madinah and Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and his followers originated from this historical part of Najd. Matter of fact is historical Najd and Al Yamama is vast regions in Arabian Peninsula and the above depictions greatly under depict the historical reality of these regions.

Rough Estimation Of Najd In Context Of Modern Najd:

In one aspect it was generosity to minimize the region of Najd in above map to bare minimum but on other hand one can feel ted bit of victimization and persecution of Khawarij with this tiny Najd. So the following map is extension of generosity to a wider area so the Khawarij don’t feel they are being unjustly narrowed down to Khariji central – Al Dirriyah. Note this boundary is strictly based on linguistic meaning of Najd (i.e. raised, elevated).

Even with this enlargement of Najd, the Khawarij have no reason to celebrate. Hadith has connected Najd with Al Yamama. By identifying the region of Al Yamama in Arabian Peninsula we have identified part of historical Najd. Below is depiction of modern Najd – with Al Yamama and Riyadh illustrated - roughly:

post-14098-0-69558100-1408813786_thumb.jpg

If one accepts the mini pink depiction of Najd or lingusitical Najd or modern Najd, the fact will be - historical Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is in east of Madinah. The Saudi capital Riyadh is situated in the Najd from which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said group of Satan will originate.

Purpose Of Riyadh Being Highlighted On Map:

Riyadh is being used as a marker to indicate Al Uyaynah which is Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab’s place of birth and Al Dirriyah - the Khariji missionary center. Here is a map depicting connection of Riyadh with these two places:

post-14098-0-89275800-1408813832_thumb.jpg

It is apparent that modern province of Najd at least consists of some parts of historical Najd. Even more importantly it is established that Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and his Ibleesi minions emerged from part of central Arabia which was known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) as Najd. Hence in light of this fact and other established facts it is established the Wahhabi sect is the group of Satan foretold to originate from Najd.

Najd Known To The Prophet Was Iraq Or By Najd Iraq Was Intended:

The regions Najd and Iraq were known as two different regions. The Wahhabi belief that Najd: 1) was Iraq, 2) in Iraq, contradict a well established fact - the Miqat for Najd is Qarn Al Manazil and for Iraq it is Dhat Al Irq. Now if Najd was in Iraq then Miqat for both would be same just as Al Yamama is in Najd and Miqat for them is Qarn Al Manazil.Coming to - by Najd Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) intending Iraq because Khawarij emerged from Iraq. Why stop at designating Iraq as Najd if emergence of Khawarij is criteria for a place to be considered Najd? Khawarij in England, Omar Bakri, Anjem Chaudri group, therefore England is Najd and in the East. Khawarij in Syria – the Isis – Syria is Najd and in East. Ali standing in France, pointed to East says; there is army in Pakistan ready to fight enemies of Pakistan, and on another occasion he says; there is army in America ready to fight enemies of America. The description matches there armies in both places, both armies ready to fight enemies, therefore by saying Pakistan Ali intended America because America is East of France. Human being, there is a country called Pakistan in East therefore by Pakistan he meant Pakistan. Aaah stupid person look the description of both armies matches, America is East from France therefore by Pakistan he meant America. What a stupid Wahhabi logic - description matches therefore both countries are one and the same. Description matches therefore Najd is Iraq, but Iraq North and not East, but the description matches therefore East is where Iraq is. This is how a Wahhabi identifies directions and names of places. What a stupid methodology and equally intelligent Wahhabi.

Conclusion:

Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab and his sect appeared from the region of Al Yamama. This Al Yamama is part of historical Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and his companions. This establishes that place from which Muhammah bin Abdul Wahhab the leader of group of Satan started his compaign of Takfir and murder of Muslims, is at very least part of historical Najd known to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) as Najd.

Footnotes:

- [1] Hadhrat Ibn Umar (radiallahu ta’ala anhu) narrates that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said: "O Allah! Bestow your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow your blessings on our Yemen." Najdites were part of the gathering and they said: "And also on our Najd." He ignored their request and continued: "O Allah! Bestow your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow your blessings on our Yemen." Once again the Najdites requested: "O Allah's Apostle! And also on our Najd." Narrator thinks it was third time when Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said in response to their requests: "There is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of Satan." [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H214] In other words Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said there in Najd will appear afflictions and earthquakes and group of Satan.

- [2] This was exactly how the Khawarij of earlier times operated, first they accused the Muslims of being polytheists, then legalized their blood, women, and property, then began the whole sale slaughter of Muslims. All this in the name of preaching pure Tawheed and preserving the purity of Tawheed. If you want to see Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab in action, see ISIS in action. Another good example would be Al Shabab in Somalia and TTP in Pakistan. Everything which the ISIS, Al Shabab, TTP do Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab did on bigger, grander scale with more zealatory. Google or Youtube these Wahhabi groups for graphic display of spreading Islam and message of pure Tawheed. Beware, images will be too graphic if you are faint hearted, it will include sharp knife beheadings while shouting, Allahu Akbar! Or executing children while reading long sermon about how Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is great and merciful, and how Islam is peaceful and not spread at the point of sword.

- [3] To harmonize the difference, Thumama bin Uthal was  chief of tribe of Banu Hanifa which was situated in the area of Al Yamama: It was narrated from Sa'eed bin Abi Sa'eed that he heard Abu Hurairah say: "The Messenger of Allah sent some horsemen toward Najd, and they brought back a man from Banu Hanifah who was called Thumamah bin Uthal, the chief of the people of Al-Yamamah. Then he was tied to one of the pillars of the Masjid." [Ref: Nisa’i, B8, H713]
