2 posts in this topic

Introduction:

Wahhabi brand of Kharijism emerged from region surrounding Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa alaihi was’sallam) had foretold the emergence of group of Satan (aka Qarn al-Shaytan) from Najd. And he precisely pointed toward direction of East and toward house of Hadhrat Aysha’s (radiallah ta’ala anha) from his puplit to point out the direction from which it would originate from, here. Historically this region was called Najd, here and here. And Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was pretty precisely pointing toward the village from which Wahhabism originated. Believers in Wahhabism attempt the disort these Ahadith and attempt to fit them on Iraq for one or other way. A Wahhabi brother wrote article an article in order to protect Wahhabism from implications of Prophetic words, here.

A Guide To Three Articles Written In Responde To Brother Abdullah:

In the first article, here, Ahadith numbered, 1 to 10, with exception of 6, and Ahadith 17 and 18 were responded to, here. Hadith-6 was repeated was repeated as Hadith-36 and Hadith-38 therefore it will be responded to in this article which will focus on responding to Ahadith from 19 to 43.  Ahadith: 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 are to be adressed in following article, here. Note Hadith-16 will be ignored because it is repeat of Hadith 14.

0.0 - Blessings On Makkah And Madinah And Group Of Satan From Iraq:

Hadith-19: “The Hadeeth of Ibn Umar Reported by Abu Nu'aym in al-Hilya (6/133): ‘O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Madeenah, and bestow your blessings on our Mecca, and bestow your blessings on our Shaam, and bestow your blessings on our Yemen, and bestow your blessings in our measuring (fee saa'inaa wa muddinaa)." A person said, " O Messenger of Allaah and in our Iraaq" and so he turned away from him and said, "there will occur earthquakes, trials and tribulations and there will appear the horn of Satan.’ Shu'ayb al-Arna'ut declares it's isnaad to be saheeh as in his footnotes to Sharh as-Sunnah (14/206-207 fn. 2) And he too endorses the words of al-Khattaabee quoted above. Hadith-20: The Hadeeth of Ibn Umar reported in at-Tabaraanee in al-Awsat: ‘The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhiwa sallam) prayed Fajr and then faced the people and said, "O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Madeenah, O Allaah bestow your blessings in our measuring, O Allaah bestow your blessings in our Shaam and our Yemen." A person said, "And Iraq O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "from there arises the horn of Satan and the trials and tribulations would come like mounting waves.’"

0.1 - Distinction Between Najd And Iraq:

Hadith recorded in Al-Hilya (6/133) by Abu Nuaym (rahimullah) and reported by Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) states: “O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Madeenah, and bestow your blessings on our Mecca, and bestow your blessings on our Shaam, and bestow your blessings on our Yemen, and bestow your blessings in our measuring (fee saa'inaa wa muddinaa)." A person said: "O Messenger of Allaah and in our Iraq." And so he turned away from him and said: "there will occur earthquakes, trials and tribulations and there will appear the group of Satan.” Another Hadith narrated by Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and recorded by Imam Tabarani (rahimullah) states: “The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhiwa sallam) prayed Fajr and then faced the people and said: "O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Madeenah, O Allaah bestow your blessings in our measuring, O Allaah bestow your blessings in our Shaam and our Yemen." A person said: "And Iraq O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "From there arises the group of Satan and the trials and tribulations would come like mounting waves.” Ahadith quoted by brother Abdullah mention supplication being made for Makkah, Sham, Madinah, and Yemen. Yet in both Ahadith refusal of supplication is for Iraq. The refusal of supplication for Iraq is contradicted by another Hadith: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Propher looked toward Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, and made the Dua: O Allah accept their hearts on your obedience and place firmly your mercy around them. [Ref: Tabarani, Mu'jam al-Sagheer, Chptr; Alif, Name; Ishaq, H273, here] In other words Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) made dua for Iraq but informed from there will emerge group of Satan. And fact of matter is Muslims do believe group of Satan emerged from Iraq and from Najd. These Ahadith establish emergence of two major groups of Satan. First emerged in Iraq and second in Najd. So this evidence of brother Abdullah does not contradict what we already believe and know. Point worth noting is that many Ahadith of Bukhari/Muslim mention Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) supplicating for sake of Yemen/Sham and refusal of supplication for Najd and telling group of Satan will emerge from it: “Narrated Ibn `Umar: (The Prophet) said, "O Allah! Bless our Sham and our Yemen." People said, "Our Najd as well." The Prophet again said, "O Allah! Bless our Sham and Yemen." 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 side of the group of Satan." [Ref: Bukhari, B17, H147] The distinction of Iraq is that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) supplicated Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) for Iraq but refused to do the same for Najd. Also one (i.e. Najd) is precisely East of Madinah and the other (i.e. Iraq) is pretty close to North. Najd means elevated land (i.e. mountainous terrain) and Iraq is all low land. Meaning of Najd fits onto central region of Saudi Arabia and not on Iraq. Also historically region of Najd was part of Arabian Peninsula, as established by maps, and Iraq was distinguished from Najd even by companions and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). And group of Satan was to emerge from direction of sunrise, here. All this establishes they are two different places and Khawarij would emerge from Iraq and then Najd.

0.2 - The Flawless Logic And Rationalism Of Wahhabism:

Ali says to Wahhabi: When you turn the corner you will see Ansar having breakfast with chapatis. Grab him by ear and bring him to me. Wahhabi turns the corner and spots horse eating paper grabs the horse by ear and drags him to Ali: Here is Ansar. Ali to Wahhabi: I said bring me Ansar. Wahhabi: You said Ansar will be eating chapatis around the corner and I saw the horse eating chapatis from plate and it proved horse is Ansar. See the result of excellent education and flawless logic. Wahhabi thought Ansar was horse because he saw him eat chapatis. The reason is detail that was suppose to identify Ansar was also found in the horse. Instead of thinking in the absence of Ansar horse ate the chapatis Mr Wahhabi thought horse was Ansar. Wahhabis employ their flawless logic for Ahadith of group of Satan. Group of Satan to emerge from Najd and group of Satan to emerge from Iraq therefore Najd is Iraq. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) knows when will they arrive at conclusion; Iraq is Najd of Saudi Arabia. It is also a equal possibility in stupid’s methodological frame work. One said: We Salafis (aka Wahhabis) entertain Najd is Iraq because Hadith states group of Satan would emerge from Najd with tribulations and earthquakes. And many tribulations emerged from Iraq including Khawarij and nothing of consequence has ever happened in Najd of Arabian Peninsula. To begin with the answer; there were many rebellions and revolts from region which the Muslims claim is Najd. Undeniable fact and agreed by all parties, right after departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) from earthly life Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu)  had to fight apostasy wars (aka Ridda wars), here. Khawarij emerged as a sect in the Khilafat of fourth Khalifah Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Therefore Iraqi tribulation was roughtly twenty-five years after where as tribulation Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu) had to deal was all over Arabian Peninsula but was more concentrated in Najd. Therefore the Hadith of tribulation can be applied upon traditionally accepted Najd as well. Following section also will point out tribulations that appeared in Arabian Peninsula including Najd.


0.3 - The First Major Sect Of Kharij –: Kharijis Emerging From Iraq:

Muslims believe Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) foretold about two major factions of Khawarij. The first group/sect of Khawarij which emerged from Iraq their reality is; vast majority of Kharijis were men from Najdi tribes and out of them large numbers including leadership was from tribe of Banu Tamim, here. Haruria sect to whom Abdullah aka Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi belonged. He was amongst the Khawarij who fought against Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and was amongst the dead of Khawarij. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) regarding this man said he has companions, meaning companions who follow him. Leaders of these Khawarij was Abdullah Ibn Wahb al-Rasibi al-Azdi (also appellation al-Rasibi). Banu Azd is sub-tribe of Banu Rasib, here. Banu Azd were siutated in region of modern country of Oman and where up to present majority population is of Khariji. Note map above pointing various location of tribes has Banu Azd (of) Uman on Eastern extremity of Arabian Peninsula. Founder of Azariqa sect of Khawarij, Nafi Ibn al-Azraq al-Hanafi al-Handhali. Apellation al-Hanafi is ascription to Banu Hanifa also indicated on the tribal map. Ascription of Handhali is to Banu Handhala (also spelt Hanzala). Banu Hanzala and Banu Hanifa were situated in Najd but the Azariqa emerged as a sect in Basrah and moved to al-Ahwaz after conquering it, here. Incidently Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabi sect of Khawarij is also from Banu Handhala, here.[1] Another major faction of Khawarij was called Najdat and their leader was Najda Ibn Amir al-Hanafi. He ruled al-Yamamah and Bahrayn in late 7th century AD. Al-Hanafi is ascription to Banu Hanifa proving this sect originated in Najd. Ajdrida founded by Abdul Karim Ibn Ajrad. I have been unable to find anything on his tribal connetions and same goes for Sufriyyah sects founders, Ziyad Ibn al-Asfar and Umran Ibn Hattan. Ibadhi sect of Khawarij was founded by Abdullah Ibn Ibadh al-Murri al Tamimi. And al-Murris is ascription to al-Tamimi to Banu Tamim and Murri ascription to Banu Murrah a branch, here,[2] which is an off-shoot of Banu Tamim. Ibadhi’s later plauged entire Muslim population and resulted in revolts and supression of revolts, here. All this goes on to establish that people of central Arabia, residents of region of Najd, played key role in Kharijism. Even though the earliest manifestation of Kharijism was from Iraq but its ranks and leaders were from central Arabian region of Najd and later manifestations of this sect plagued Najd and Arabian Peninsula in general. So the source of tribulations the inventors of almost all leaders of Khariji tribulation in Iraq were from central Arabia. And those who did not belong to region were definitely influenced by their thought.


0.4 - The Second Coming Of Khawarij -: From Saudi Central Region Of Najd:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) foretold about emergence of group of Satan from East of Madinah in the region of Najd: “Narrated Ibn 'Umar: (The Prophet) said, "O Allah! Bless our Sham and our Yemen." People said: "Our Najd as well." The Prophet again said: "O Allah! Bless our Sham and Yemen." 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 side of the group of Satan." [Ref: Bukhari, B17, H147] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) foretold that from progeny of Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi a group would emerge: “Then the Prophet looked at him while the latter was going away and said, "From the offspring of this who will recite the Qur'an continuously and elegantly but it will not exceed their throats. They would go out of the religion as an arrow goes through a game's body." [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H638] And these people are to appear near the end of time as if Dhil Khuwaisirah is one of them: "A people will come at the end of time; as if he is one of them, reciting the Qur'an without it passing beyond their throats. They will go through Islam just as the arrow goes through the target. Their distinction will be shaving. They will not cease to appear until the last of them comes with Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal. So when you meet them, then kill them, they are the worst of created beings." [Ref: Nisa’i, B37, H4108, here] Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi was a from East of Madinah and from region of Najd. To see how Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi fits into Najd and Khariji sect please referr to the following article, here. In another Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) foretold about two groups of Satans from Banu Rabia and Banu Mudhar: “And harshness and callousness of the hearts is found amongst the rude owners of the camels, who drive them behind their tails (to the direction), where emerge the two groups of Satan, they are [from] the tribes of Rabi'a and Mudar.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H83] Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab originated from Banu Tamim and it is off-shoot of Banu Mudhar. The Saud family which allied with Shaykh of Najd and provided him the millitary support to establish and spread Wahhabism are from Banu Anizzah which is offshoot of Banu Rabia. All tribal lineage can be tracker, here.


0.5 - Fulfillment Of Prophecy Of Najd By Shaykh Of Najd:

Banu Rabia and its offshoot Banu Anizzah, and Banu Mudhar and its offshoot Banu Tamim were located in central Arabia. At present it is area surrouding Saudi capital Riyadh. And point worth noting is that all these tribes were located in Najd. The two groups of Satan which united to make Saudi Arabia today were from offshoots of Banu Rabia and Banu Mudhar and this unholy alliance originated in Najd which continues upto present. This establishes all four Ahadith are connected with each other. And in light of historical events of middle 17th century they come togather to establish that the two mini-groups of Satan (i.e. Banu Hanzala and Banu Anizzah) united and a major group of Satan emerged from Najd in form of Wahhabism thus fullfilling the prophetic prophesy.

0.6 - Origins Of Wahhabism And Tribulations That Plagued Najd:

The agreement between Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab aka Shaykh of Najd and Saud family meant; Saud will control the affairs of state and Shaykh of Najd will control affairs of Saudi state. Shaykh of Najd instilled in his followers the desire to fight and kill Muslims. He taught them the Muslims in surrounding areas are polytheists/disbelievers and not Muslims therefore Jihad is compulsory for all. Wahhabis took to his cause and started the process of raids leading to slaughter of thousands. Following is just record of battles which Saudi Wahhabi forces fought against armies, here. Following is a map of series of battles which Ibrahim Pasha fought against Wahhabis, here. The raids which Wahhabis carried out of Muslim towns and what they did to the Muslims of these towns can only be read in books of history. They massacared entire towns which they conquered. Raped, pillaged and enslaved Muslims under the pretexts these Muslims are not real Muslims but are polytheists therefore we are justified in our war against them. If it be possible Muslims should read; Rawdhat al-Afkar wal-Afham, popularly known as Tareekh al-Najd by Hussain Ibn Ghanam. This is a first hand witness account of what the Wahhabis did to people of in Najd and surrounding regions. And readers should read Unwan al-Majd Fi Tareekh al-Najd by Abdullah Ibn Bashir. Ibn Ghanam was companion of Shaykh of Najd and Ibn Bashir was half generation later but both wrote account of what they saw and was reported to them those who took part in Wahhabi raids against Muslims of Arabia. Their brutality and barbarity pales barbarity and brutatlity of modern spawns of Wahhabism aka ISIS, Al-Qaidah, Boko Haram, and Al-Shabab and TTP. Therefore the following Hadith perfectly fits on account of affilictions/tribulations upon Najd of central Arabia: "Our Najd as well." On that the Prophet said: "There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the group of Satan." [Ref: Bukhari, B17, H147]


1.0 - Abdullah’s Version Of Evil Of Iraqi’s And The Reality:

Hadith-21: “And he (the 'Iraqi) has told a lie in this matter.” (Reference: Muslim, B7, H2850) Hadith-22: Malik related to me that he heard that Umar ibn al-Khattab wanted to go to Iraq, and Kab al-Ahbar said to him: "Do not go there, amir al-muminin. There is nine-tenths of sorcery there and it is the place of the rebellious jinn and the disease which the doctors are unable to cure." (Muwatta.I.Malik Book 054, H30) Comments:-From the innovations that appeared in the east and specifically Iraaq, was many of the early deviant sects amongst them the Qadariyyah (as the first hadeeth in Muslim shows), the Jahmiyyah and their offshoots etc... Hadith-23: Narrated Jabir bin Samura:The People of Kufa complained against Sa'd to Umar and the latter dismissed him and appointed Ammar as their chief .They lodged many complaints against Sa'd and even they alleged that he did not pray properly. Umar sent for him and said, "O Aba Ishaq! These people claim that you do not pray properly."Abu Ishaq said: "By Allah, I used to pray with them a prayer similar to that of Allah's Apostle and I never reduced anything of it. I used to prolong the first two Rakat of Isha prayer and shorten the last two Rakat." Umar said: "O Aba Ishaq, this was what I thought about you." And then he sent one or more persons with him to Kufa so as to ask the people about him. So they went there and did not leave any mosque without asking about him. All the people praised him till they came to the mosque of the tribe of Bani Abs; one of the men called Usama bin Qatada with a surname of Aba Sa'd stood up and said: "As you have put us under an oath; I am bound to tell you that Sa'd never went himself with the army and never distributed (the war booty) equally and never did justice in legal verdicts." (On hearing it) Sa'd said: "I pray to Allah for three things: O Allah! If this slave of yours is a liar and got up for showing off, give him a long life, increase his poverty and put him to trials." (And so it happened). Later on when that person was asked how he was; he used to reply that he was an old man in trial as the result of Sa'd's curse. Abdul Malik, the sub narrator said that he had seen him afterwards and his eyebrows were over-hanging his eyes owing to old age and he used to tease and assault the small girls in the way. (Bukhari, B12, Vol1, H 722. Muslim, B4, H912) Hadith-24: It was narrated that Abu Razin said:"I saw Abu Hurairah clap his hand to his forehead and say: 'O people of Al-Iraq you claim that I tell lies about the Messenger of Allah. I bear witness that I heard the Messenger of Allah say: If the strap of the sandal of one of you breaks, let him not walk in the other until he fixes it.'" (Sahih) (Reference: an-Nasa'i 5370, Vol6, B48, H5372. Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, B41, H5) Comments: Astagfirullah Iraqis attributed a lies on Sahabas (Sa'd radiallah anh & Abu-Hurairah r.a) Astagfirullah ...”

1.1 - Hadith Twenty-One And Innovations A Reality Check:

Hadith twenty-one , here, is regarding an Iraqi man who believes Ihram can be removed. And Hadith goes on to give details how companions of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) only removed Ihram after completion of Hajj. The Iraqi man claims he has been informed by a person who heard from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). He asks another companion to convey his messages to Urwa Ibn Zubayr (radiallah ta’ala anhu) about the matter. Yet the Iraqi not personally visiting the companion but conveys his messages via another companion indicates he had something to hide and was lieing: “… whereupon he (Urwa) said: Who is he (the Iraqi)? I said: I do not know, whereupon he said: What is the matter that he does not come to me himself and ask me? I suppose he is an Iraqi. I said: I do not know, whereupon he said: He has told a lie.” And at the end of Hadith same is repeated: “My mother informed me that she came and her sister, and Zubair and so and so for Umra, and when they had kissed the corner (the Black Stone, after Sa'i and circumambulation), they put off Ihram. And he (the Iraqi) has told a lie in this matter.” [Ref: Muslim, B7, H2850] Note Urwa Ibn Zubayr (radiallah ta’ala anhu) did not accuse the Iraqi of introducing innovation just lieing. Nor he concluded on basis of this Hadith Iraq is land of innovation. Mr Wahhabi employed this incident to make case innovations originated from Iraq. The fact is there was good and bad in every region of Khilafat. Innovations were introduced in Makkah, Madinah, Najd, Iraq, and Syria. Innovation of denying prophetic Ghayb knowledge was started by the hypocrites of Madinah. And if we take literalism of Hadith Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha) in meanings employed by Wahhabis/Deobandis to refute Ilm al-Ghayb of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) then she is also part of this innovation:“Narrated Masruq: Aisha said: "If anyone tells you that Muhammad has seen his Lord, he is a liar, for Allah says: 'No vision can grasp Him.' (6:103) And if anyone tells you that Muhammad has seen the Unseen, he is a liar, for Allah says: "None has the knowledge of the Unseen but Allah." [Ref: Bukhari, B93, H477, here] Yet there are numerous verses of Quran which attest to fact Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has been granted Ilm al-Ghayb,72:26/27, and according to many Ahadith he has has seen Ghuyub; including :angels, hell, and paradise. And as par view of Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) even saw Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), a view which she opposed. Also Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) believed Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) saw Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha) believed he did not see Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) but saw Gibraeel (alayhis salam) and she said anyone who claims so is a liar. Abdullah Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) believed Salat ad-Duha is an innovation, or an aspect of it is an innovation but fact is that it is a prophetic Sunnah. Which proves Abdullah Ibn Umar’s view was an innovation. Now which ever view is correct the result is that other has innovated a beliefe a teaching which is not established and is an [evil] innovation. Yes they are companions and their sins forgiven and paradise gauranteed. They are Mujtahideen and their errors even are rewarded but in legal sense their teachings are innovations; innovations which we choose to brush under the carpet of valid Ikhtilaf.

1.2 - Hadith Twenty-One And The Insane Agenda:

Innovations were introduced in all regions including in Makkah and Madinah and by companions and by munafiqeen and by evil people and Iraq and Iraqis were not unique in this. There were good and bad elements every where. On basis of bad ones entire people cannot be blamed. Due to presences of hypocrites in Madinah it cannot be declared land of hypocrites. There were righteous people and companions amongst the inhabitants of Madinah. If there is no reason to hold people of Makkah and Madinah in contempt on basis of innovations then there is no reason to have contempt for people of Iraq and Iraq. The good people in both regions have to be appreciated and the evil rebuked and corrected. Only reason brother Abdullah wants to demonise the Iraqis is because he wants to shift Najd from central Arabia to Iraq. And he has to make Iraqis extra evil for readers to believe him that Iraqis gave rise to group of Satan. Yet reality is that Khawarij were from Najdi tribes of central Arabia and according to Hadith Iraqis killed the Khawarij: “... be smeared by dung and blood. The sign by which these people will be recognized will be a man whose one hand (or breast) will be like the breast of a woman. These people will appear when there will be differences among the people (Muslims)." Abu Sa'id added: I testify that I heard this from the Prophet and also testify that Ali killed those people while I was with him. The man with the description given by the Prophet was brought to Ali. The following Verses were revealed in connection with that very person: 'And among them are men who accuse you (O Muhammad) in the matter of (the distribution of) the alms.” [Ref: Bukhari, B84, H67] ”A man throws an arrow at the prey (or he said at the target), and sees at its iron head, but finds no sign (of blood there), or he sees at the lowest end, but would not see or find any sign (of blood there). He would then see into the grip but would not find (anything) sticking to it. Abu Sai'd then said: People of Iraq. It is you who have killed them.”
[Ref: Muslim, B5, H2324] And not just that but the Iraqis are part of the group nearer to truth because they killed the Khawarij: “... Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) made a mention of a sect that would be among his Ummah which would emerge out of the dissension of the people. Their distinctive mark would be shaven heads. They would be the worst creatures or the worst of the creatures. The group who would be nearer to the truth out of the two would kill them.” [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2324]

1.3 - Hadith twenty-Two, Magic, Sorcery, Jinn and Disease In Iraq:

During the Khilafat of Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu) parts of modern Iraq were conquered,
here. It was in the Khilafat of Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) entire Iraq and regions surrounding it were brought under the rule of Islam, here. Hadith twenty-two states that a companion attempted to prevent Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) from visiting Iraq on basis that in Iraq there is sorcerry, Jinn and Disease which no one can cure. If indeed this was the situation would Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) have sent armies, part of which were Sahabah and Tabieen, to conquer Iraq? Would they want to expose the Muslims to dangers and harm which they didn’t want to face themselves? These Khulafah were not Barrack Obama, Donald Tramp and Tony Blair of their era; with no regard for lives of people under their command. The matter of fact is companions were part of armies and they fought and conquered Iraq and fourth Khalifah Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) made Baghdad capital of his rule. The Hadith is very likely Da’if and maybe even fabricated. And if not its nothing more then a companion taking rumours and supersitious too seriously and fear mongering out of sincerity. The reality is if Iraq was such a evil place then all the things mentioned would have caused harm to native inhabitants of Iraq and probally done away with entire population. Yet Iraq has been civilisation central, empire central for thousand of years. There is no uncurable disease or sorcerry. Iraq is place for which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) invoked blessing and a blessed land: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Propher looked toward Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, and made the Dua: O Allah accept their hearts on your obedience and place firmly your mercy around them. [Ref: Tabarani, Mu'jam al-Sagheer, Chptr; Alif, Name; Ishaq, H273, here] Once again the purpose was to demonize Iraq. To make it seem as it is holy of holies of all evil and innovations so Iraq can be reconciled with Najd on basis of afflictions, tribulations, trials and innovations.

1.4 - Hadith Twenty-Three Iraqis Complaining About Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqas:

From the content of Hadith quoted at number twenty-three it is clear that Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqas was appointed governor of Kufa by second Khalifah Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu). He repeatedly received complaints regarding Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu), one allegation levelled was; Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu) did not perform Salah correctly, and therefore he was removed him from his post. Upon return of Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu) he was questioned about his practice of Salah and allegations were unfound. Further envoy was sent to investigate conduct and practices of Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu). As evidenced by Hadith; all people of Kufa praised Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu) accept when the evnoy reached mosque of Bani Abs. And from it a single man with the name of Usama Ibn Qatada under oath lied and Sa’d (radiallah ta’ala anhu) invoked Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) to punish him if he has lied. According to Hadith the supplication was granted by Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) as demonstrated by details of Hadith. Note this one incident was used by brother Abdullah, the enemey of common sense, to justify that all Iraqis accused Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) of lieing. In reality it wasn’t even all of Kufa just a particular mosque belonging to Banu Abs. Who likely were displeased with Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) for some reason. Would it be appropriate to point out sins of companions residing in Makkah, Madinah, and Arabian Peninsula in general to say people of Arabia are evil doers? What if Ahadith establish evil and rebellion of Arabs residing in central Saudi Arabian region of Najd; will they all be deemed evil and innovators, and liars? Take example of Musaylmah from al-Yamama; he claimed Prophet-hood and the Najdis of al-Yamama accepted his Prophet-hood claim and followed him in battle against Khilafat of Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu): “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 Messenger 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] Following maps indicate location of al-Yamama in Arabian Peninsula, here, here, and following map points to location of al-Yamama in context of region of Najd, here. On basis of this would it be fair and intelligent to imply all people of Najd and al-Yamama were believers of Prophet-hood? Musailimah, the liar, claimed Prophet-hood when there was no Prophet after the last and final Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) hence the addition of al-Kadhab (i.e. the liar) with his name. If a Iraqi, or few, or dozen, or greater in number attributed lies to companions, and that makes the entire Iraqi-kind evil, and bad, and it entitles them being Qarn al-Shaytan (i.e. group of Satan); then surely Musailimah who claimed to be Prophet of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and lied about it, and those who accepted his claim are more evil. On this basis and the Khariji leadership being from Najdi tribes would it be legitimate to conclude Iraq is in central Arabia? No of course not; because Hadith states name of region as Iraq from where the group of Satan will emerge and as result of trials and tribulations will appear from Iraq. It would be stupid to determine location of Iraq and even Najd on basis of trials, tribulations, and afflictions and not on basis of names of region i.e. Najd and Iraq. Just imagine Sufi says: There is war in Syria. Mr Wahhabi the embodiment of ‘knowledge and learning’ and ‘the inheritor or true belief of Salaf as-Saliheen’ says: There is war in Afghanistan therefore meaning of Syria is Afghanistan because there is war in Afghanistan. Again we don’t determine identity of regions based on events but determine location and identity of regions based on names and apply the events to region. And all evidence points to Najd being in central Saudi Arabia; area surrounding Saudi capital of Riyadh. And we have to fit the trial and tribulation part of Hadith onto this region.

1.5 - Hadith Twenty-Four Abu Huraira Disowns Accusation Of Lieing:

In Hadith number twenty-four it is stated Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) said to people of Iraq that you accuse me of lieing meaning fabricating Ahadith and attributing to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Likely reason why Iraqis thought Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) fabricated Ahadith is because he narrated too many Ahadith, which he himself says he is accused of, regarding every matter/situation. Imagine you can narrate a statement of certain Harry regarding every situation you find yourself in. Sooner or later people would accusr you of inventing and attributing statements to Harry. If not that they will definitely think you’re cuckoo for relating everything to Harry. His extra-ordinary capacity to remember was just too much for some Iraqis to believe and they accused him of lieing. Reason he was able to narrate Ahadith like this is because he spent most of his time with Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam): “Narrated Abu Huraira: People say that I have narrated many Hadiths (The Prophet's narration). Had it not been for two verses in the Qur'an, I would not have narrated a single Hadith, and the verses are: "Verily those who conceal the clear sign and the guidance which We have sent down . . . (up to) Most Merciful." (2:159/160). And no doubt our Muhajir (emigrant) brothers used to be busy in the market with their business (bargains) and our Ansari brothers used to be busy with their property (agriculture). But I (Abu Huraira) used to stick to Allah's Messenger contented with what will fill my stomach and I used to attend that which they used not to attend and I used to memorize that which they used not to memorize. [Ref: Bukhari, B3, H118] And possessed a huge capacity to remember information accurately due to prophetic miracle that manifested for him: “Narrated Abu Huraira: I said to Allah's Messenger: "I hear many narrations (Hadiths) from you but I forget them." Allah's Apostle said: "Spread your garment." I did accordingly and then he moved his hands as if filling them with something (and emptied them in my garment) and then said: "Take and wrap this sheet over your body." I did it and after that I never forgot any thing. Narrated Ibrahim bin Al-Mundhir: Ibn Abi Fudaik narrated the same as above but added that the Prophet had moved his hands as if filling them with something and then he emptied them in the garment of Abu Huraira.” [Ref: Bukhari, B3, H119] He was Daniel Tammet, Kim Peek, when it came to knowledge of Prophetic Sunnah. His capability was just too great to accept without verification. If someone told you; I can quote to you entire encyclopedia after just a glance at each page most people would simply not believe. And if you narrate to them entire book based on claim you look at its each page for ten seconds most people and likely all will think you’re lieing. And Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was narrating unbelieveable amount of Ahadith. People of Madinah were aware who Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was and how he learnt such great deal but Iraqis on other hand might not have had full knowledge of extensiveness of his company of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and great ability of memorising information. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) knows better! Important point is that it wasn’t, all the Iraqis, maybe there was just few who had accused him of lieing, and this is more logically acceptable. Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) would have only addressed the people who accused him. And if someone calims that it was entire Iraqi-kind then proof needs to be provided; all Iraqi-kind had gathered to accuse Abu Huraira (radiallah ta’ala anhu) of lieing and his statement was in reply to them. Otherwise the logical conclusion would be few Iraqis might have accused him of lieing due to his super-natural capacity of recalling words of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) word or word. They can hardly be accused of malicious intent only that they were careful in taking Ahadith from people and Abu Huraira’s (radiallah ta’ala anhu) phenominal memory made him suspect in their sight. Even if they had malicious intent the fact of matter is they were few individuals from Iraq and on basis of these few people one cannot demonise entire Iraqi population.

1.6 - Mentioned Ahadith And Their Worth:

Brother Abdullah quoted these Ahadith in attempt to malign population of Iraq as inherently evil and irreligious. And after erecting this bogey-man image of Iraqis he was attempting to justify his earlier assertion that Najd is in fact Iraq and Iraqis are group of Satan. Reality is there are two major sects of Khawarij aka group of Satan; first appeared from Iraq and the other was to appear from Najd. The group of Shaytan emerging from Najd is none other than Wahhabism. All details of Ahadith come togather to precisely pinpoint the direction from which it was to originate.

2.0 - Hadith Twenty-Five: Martyrdom Of Third Khalifah Uthman Ibn Affan:


Hadith-25: “Narrated Qais: I heard Said bin Zaid bin 'Amr bin Nufail saying in the mosque of Al-Kufa. "By Allah, I have seen myself tied and forced by 'Umar to leave Islam before 'Umar himself embraced Islam. And if the mountain of Uhud could move from its place for the evil which you people have done to 'Uthman, then it would have the right to move from its place." (Bukhari, B58, H202) Imam Ibn Abdul Bar (368h-463h) said: “Allah knows best that the reason behind pointing of Prophet peace be upon him towards east regarding fitna is that the biggest fitna which was the key of troubles was the martyrdom of uthman bin affan radhiAllahanho, and that was the reason behind  the war of Jamal and Siffeen, these troubles started from the east. Then Kharjities emerged from the land of Najd, Iraq and it's regions.” (Al-Istadkhar 8/519)

2.1 - History Lesson On Murder Of Uthman Ibn Affan:

The rebellion was initiated by Egyptian, Al-Ghafiqi Ibn Harb al-Akki, a Yemeni who had migrated to Egypt. He was incharge of entire operation. He got support from Basra and Kufa and returned to Egypt and gathered eighteen-hundered men and they marched toward Madinah under pretext of Hajj. There they met leaders of Kufan and Basran men and togather they laid siege to Madinah which resulted in matyrdom of Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Egypt is North West of Madinah and Iraq is North East of Madinah. The discontent regarding Khilafat of Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was wide spread. The Hadith only mentions Kufans because Sa’id Ibn Zaid Ibn Amr Ibn Nufail (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was in Kufa and addressing Kufans. It is undeniable fact that Iraqis of Kufa, Basra, and participants from Egypt and Yemen took part in rebellion against Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu) but just to lay blame on Iraqis to supplement distortion of Hadith of Najd is shamelessness.

2.2 - Back Ground To Statement Of Ibn Abdul Barr:

If I recall correctly Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimullah) wrote this in context Hadith which narrates words of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) that Ammar Ibn Yasir (radiallah ta’ala anhu) will be killed by a rebellious group. According to a Hadith Ammar Ibn Yasir (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was killed by side of Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Implication of which is Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was rebel and those who sided with him. And according to prophetic teaching rebellion is Kufr and rebel goes out of Islam. Result of which was Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and those who sided with him were Kafirs which contradicted with prophetic saying; Hassan (radiallah ta’ala anhu) will unite two group of Muslims after much blood has been shed between them. And these two groups were of Hassan (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Indicating Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and his party was Muslim even after what transpired. In order to resolve the contradiction Abdul Bar (rahimullah) points out that genesis of all civil wars is event of matyrdom of  Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu). His point is that evil Sunnah of rebellion and murder of Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and chain of evil resulting from it goes far as battles of Jamal and Siffeen and everything there after. And the blame of each death and event will rest with those who rebelled and murdered Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu). And in this context he lays the blame of death of Ammar Ibn Yasir (radiallah ta’ala anhu) on rebells who ended life of third Khalifah Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Saying that these rebels basicly started a chain of events which gave rise to all the tribulations that took place and he is right in this judgment because Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) stated one who starts an evil Sunnah and those who follow it will all get equal blame/sin. With regards to his Taweel that murder of Ammar Ibn Yasir (radiallah ta’ala anhu) is to be blamed upon rebels who killed Uthman (radiallah ta’ala anhu) is theological interpretation but doesn’t remove the contradiction. Fact of matter is murderers of Ammar Ibn Yasir (radiallah ta’ala anhu) were Khawarij; they were part of Muawiyah’s (radiallah ta’ala anhu) army like they were in Ali’s (radiallah ta’ala anhu) army. And after the arbitration they seperated from both sides and joined forces against Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and attempted to assassinate Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu).

2.3 - All Important Najd And Iraq, And Ibn Abdul Barr:


The all important point is Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimullah) makes distinction between Iraq and Najd when he rights: “Then Kharjities emerged from the land of Najd and Iraq and it's regions.” Brother Abdullah dropped the translation of wa (i.e. and) from writing of Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimullah) in an attempt to make statement read Najd Iraq to indicate there is Najd in Iraq. At the end of his articles he lists twelve Najds and on number two you find Najd Iraq. Proving that brother Abdullah deliberately dropped the wa/and from statement of Imam Abdul Barr (rahimullah) to remove distinction between Najd and Iraq. Is has been established Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimullah) believed Najd and Iraq were two different places. And Khawarij emerged from both these places; Iraq and Najd. Distortion (i.e. Tehreef) of texts was habbit of Jews of Arabian Peninsula regarding whom Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) stated: “So do you (Muslims) wish for them (the Jews) to accept faith in you whereas a group of them used to listen to the Words of Allah, and then after having understood it, purposely changed it?” [Ref: 2:75] The verse points out that Muslims are expecting a group of people to believe in truth of Islam when the reality of these people is they knowingly distort texts to preserve their beleifs. This is indication that one who knowingly distorts texts has no integrity and no desire to believe in truth even if he comes to know it. With regards to brother Abdullah distorting the text I let the readers decide/think if they wish to sink with his scholarship and integrity or will they hold to rope of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).


2.4 - Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah And Delegation Of Abdul al-Qais:

It is recorded in Hadith a delegation of Banu Abdul Qais visited Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and said: “Narrated Ibn Abbas: A delegation of the tribe of `Abdul Qais came to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Messenger! We are from the tribe of Rabi`a, and the infidels of the tribe of Mudar stands between us and you; so we cannot come to you except during the Sacred Months. Please order us to do something (religious deeds) which we may carry out and also invite to it our people whom we have left behind." The Prophet said, "I order you to do four things and forbid you four others: (I order you) to have faith in Allah, and confess that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, (and the Prophet gestured with his hand like this (i.e. one knot) and to offer prayers perfectly and to pay the Zakat, and to pay onefifth of the booty in Allah's Cause. And I forbid you to use (utensils used for preparing alcoholic drinks namely) Dubba', Hantam, Naqir and Muzaffat." [Ref: Bukhari, B24, H482] Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah has following to say regarding this delegation and who the infidels of Mudar are: "The delegation of 'Abd al-Qays was one of the best delegations ever to come to the Prophet (Allah bless and greet him) ... and they said: 'Between us and you there are those regions of the disbelievers of Mudar and they meant Najd  and we cannot reach you except during a sacred month.'" [Ref: Majmu'a al-Fatawa ,Vol7, P598, by Ibn Taymiyyah] The following section will comprehensively shed light onto Najd and the disbelievers of Najd which were preventing Banu Abdul Qais from travelling to Madinah to meet Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam).

Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah On First Jummah In Bharayn And On Najd:

It is recorded in Ahadith: “Narrated Ibn  Abbas: The first Jumua prayer which was offered after a Jumua prayer offered at the mosque of Allah's Apostle took place in the mosque of the tribe of Abdul Qais at Jawathi in Bahrain.” [Ref: Bukhari, B13, H17] “Narrated Ibn Abbas: The first Friday (i.e. Jumua) prayer offered after the Friday Prayer offered at the Mosque of Allah's Apostle was offered at the mosque of `Abdul Qais situated at Jawathi, that is a village at Al Bahrain.” [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H657] Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah narrates the Hadith and then comments on this Hadith: “Ibn Abbas said: "The first Jumu'a that gathered in Islam after the Jumu'a of Madina was that of Jawathi, one of the towns of al-Bahrayn. They said: 'O Messenger of Allah! Between us and you are those regions of the disbelievers of Mudar, and (we) cannot come to you except in a sacred month. Therefore give us a decisive order which we might put into practice and by which we shall call those who are behind us.'” Meaning: the people of Najd from them (tribes of) Tamim, Asad, Ghatafan, and others." [Ref:Majmu'a al-Fatawa, Vol7, P552, by Ibn Taymiyyah] Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah the man-love of Wahhabiyyah has reveals; the disbelievers of Banu Mudhar are tribes of Tamim, Asad and Ghatafan. In others of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah following are included: Banu Fazarah[3] is an off-shoot of Banu Mudhar via Ghatafan, here. Banu Murrah[4] is a offshoot of Banu Mudhar, here. Banu Ashja[5] is an off-shoot of Banu Ghatafan, here. Banu Sa’d is an off-shoot of Banu Mudhar. It is difficult to understand which Banu Sa’d would be pointed out on the map yet to be linked. My educated guess would be via route: Adnan, Ma'ad, Nizar, Mudar [also spelt; Mudhar], Ailan, Qais … Whatever the precise lineage of Banu Sa’d maybe the uncontestable fact is that it would be an off-shoot of Banu Mudhar. Following map precisely points on location of each of these tribes and explains the disbelievers in between Madinah and Banu Qais, here. Banu Saleem/Salim is an off-shoot of Banu Ghatafan via Banu Hawazin, Banu Thaqif, and Banu Salim, here.What this establishes is the land of Najd is inhabited by tribes of Banu: Tamim, Asad, Ghatafan, Murrah, Ashja, Sa’d, Fazarah, and Banu Saleem [also spelt; Salim]. If Najd was land of Iraq, or if Najd was in Iraq then burden of proof is upon the Wahhabiyyah to substantiate their claim. We the Muslims have established our position even from Imam of the Wahhabiyyah.

3.0 - Section To Follow And Its Relationship With Iraq And Group Of Satan:

In the section to come brother Abdullah will attempt to paint Banu Tamim highly. Muslims believe Najd is in Arabian Peninsula and Bani Tamim were majorly involved in tribulation of group of Satan, aka horn of Satan, aka Khawarij. In contrast the Wahhabiyyah believe Najd is Iraq (others from them believe; it is in Iraq but not whole Iraq) and group of Satan emerged from Iraq. Muslims point out involvement of Banu Tamim in Khariji tribulation and point to land which Banu Tamim inhabited to further coroborate location of historical Najd. And part and parcel of this is pointing out bad and ugly traits of members of Banu Tamim which agree with nature and behaviour of Khawarij – i.e. rude, aggressive, uncivil, and merciless. To balance this and to portray Banu Tamim positively the Wahhabiyyah point to good traits of Banu Tamim and they tend to bash and smash Iraqis to make them look ultimate evil. So in the following section you will note brother Abdullah will sing praises of Banu Tamim because Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab the founder of Wahhabi sect belonged to this tribe.

3.1 – The Good Bad And The Ugly Of Banu Tamim:

Under the heading, ‘Quran mentions evil of Bani Israel and some times their virtue but we cannot say every person children of Bani Israel was a sinner bad. In the same way we have wrecked bad Banu Tamim as well as pious Banu Tamim.’, brother Abdullah quotes following Ahadith: Hadith-26: Narrated by Abu Huraira: I have loved the people of the tribe of Bani Tamim ever since I heard, three things, Allah's Apostle said about them. I heard him saying, These people (of the tribe of Bani Tamim) would stand firm against Ad-Dajjal." When the Sadaqat (gifts of charity) from that tribe came, Allah's Apostle said, "These are the Sadaqat (i.e. charitable gifts) of our folk." Aisha had a slave-girl from that tribe, and the Prophet said to Aisha: "Manumit her as she is a descendant of Ishmael (the Prophet)." (Bukhari, B46,H719, Muslim B31, H6133) Hadith-27: "Abu Huraira reported: There are some distinguishing features of Banu Tamim which I heard from Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and my love for them is never on the decline after that and the words are: They are the bravest amongst people in the battlefield and there is no mention of (the word) Dajjal." (Muslim, B31,H6134) Hadith-28: "Abu Huraira reported: Since I heard three things from Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) my love for Banu Tamim is never on the decline (and these things are): I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying about them that they would put up stout resistance against Dajjal amongst my Umma. And he (the narrator) said: (When) the consignment of Zakat was brought to him, Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: This is the charity of our people, and there was one slave-girl in the house of 'A'isha and she was from the tribe of Banu Tamim; thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Set her free, for she is from the offspring of Isma'il. The other hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abu Huraira with a slight variation of wording." (Muslim, B31, H6133)”

3.2 – Every Child Of Banu Israel And Banu Tamim Is Sinful:

Brother Abdullah wrote that he and we (maybe as; we Wahhabis) cannot say every member of Banu Tamim is sinful. His statement implies some elements of Banu Tamim and Banu Israel are sinless and this creed is only to be held for Prophets and Messengers. Yet we can confidently say every member of Bani Israel (excluding the Prophets) and every member of Banu Tamim was sinful. Every person is sinful but not every sinful person is bad in judgment of Shari’ah and this rule also applies to Banu Tamim as well. I suspect brother Abdullah’s command of English has failed him and what he wrote is not his actual belief. It does not impact positively or negatively upon his belief. I have rectified his error by crossing out words and by inserting in green words to convey what he intended.

3.3 – Harshness Of Banu Tamim Against Dajjal:

In Hadith26 it is stated Banu Tamim will be harshed against Dajjal. It cannot be denied the harshest people against Dajjal will be from Banu Tamim but harshness of Banu Tamim against Dajjal is not a positive sign. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said harsness and mercilessness are qualities of Banu Rabia and Banu Mudhar and these tribes were located in East of Madinah and they are group of Satan: “The summit of unbelief is towards the East and the pride and conceitedness is found among the owners of horses and camels who are rude and uncivil …” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H87] Verily Iman is towards this side, and harshness and callousness of the hearts is found amongst the rude owners of the camels who drive them behind their tails (to the direction) where emerge the two groups of Satan, they are the tribes of Rabi'a and Mudar.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H83] “Narrated Abu Masud: The Prophet beckoned with his hand towards Yemen and said, "Belief is there." The harshness and mercilessness are the qualities of those farmers etc, who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to the religion (is towards the east) from where the side of the group of Satan will appear; those are the tribes of Rabi`a and Mudar.” [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H670] “Narrated Ibn `Umar: I heard Allah's Messenger while he was facing the East, saying, "Verily! Afflictions are there, from where the side of the head of Satan comes out." [Ref: Bukhar, B88, H213] And note harshness and mercilessness of in this Hadith is mentioned negatively. Undeniable fact is Banu Tamim is was situated in East of Madinah in lands surrounding modern Saudi capital Riyadh and Banu Tamim is off-shoot of Banu Mudhar.[6] From this its clear that people of East including the tribes mentioned are harsh and rude by their nature. Therefore it cannot be argued; their harshness against Dajjal will be due to firmness of Iman, or correctness of their religious adherance, or for sake of Jihad. This becomes especially apparent if you couple it with what Dhul Khawaysira At Tamimi said to Prophet of Allah: 'Be just of Prophet of Allah.' This points to uncalled for harshness and due to misguided belief and due to barbaric nature. We can confirm that Banu Tamim will be the harshest tribe against Dajjal but the reasons for it can be disputed. Even if we take harshness of Banu Tamim against Dajjal in positive light in context of following Hadith: "Abu Huraira reported: There are some distinguishing features of Banu Tamim which I heard from Allah's Messenger and my love for them is never on the decline after that and the words are: They are the bravest amongst people in the battlefield and there is no mention of Dajjal." [Ref: Muslim, B31, H6134] Meaning they will be harsh against Dajjal because of their bravery it necessrily does not mean they would be brave due to Iman and spirit of Jihad fi sabi’lillah. Also there is no reason to believe entire Banu Tamim is evil/bad, or Khariji. There is good in every nation, every tribe, and every person. And it could be very likelyBanu Tamim, harsh to be against Dajjal, may belong to Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah. Banu Tamim’s harshness against Dajjal can be a virtue if done with correct creed, intention, and for sake of Islam. And if done with typical Khariji fashion which Banu Tamim is known for then it is no merit rather a negative as the Ahadith hint. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) knows better!

3.4 - Sadaqaat Of Banu Tamim And Meaning Of Prophetic Words:

To begin with Prophetic tribal lineage starts from: Adnan, Ma'd, Nizar, Mudar, Ilyas, Mudrikah, Khuzaimah, Kinanah, an-Nadr/al-Nasr, Malik, Fihr/Quraysh, here. Banu Tamim’s tribal lineage is: Adnan, Ma'd, Nizar, Mudar, Ilyas, Tanjah, Tamim. From Ilyas onwards both tribal genealogies have common ancestors always back to Adnan. It is clear that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) did not mean that Banu Tamim is his Qawm (i.e. nation) in sense of ancestory. Ibn Bataal al-Maliki (rahimullah) in his Sharh Sahih al-Bukhar Li Ibn Bataal stated; Banu Tamim gave their best from their wealth as charity and due to which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was extremely pleased with Banu Tamim. And as a compliment said regarding Banu Tamim: “These are the Sadaqaat of our Qawm (i.e. nation).” Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has used the best of Sadaqaat of Banu Tamim and played on words to imply; Qawm (i.e. companions, including Banu Tamim) gives best from their wealth in Sadaqaat. In context Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is praising entire Jammah of companions including Bani Tamim. It needs to be pointed out this was a time when Banu Tamim was under favour of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) but the Banu Tamim changed and so did favour of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and their standing. They as whole went from good to bad during Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) life and worse after Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) passed away. They were actively supporting Musaylmah Ibn Kadhab and his rebellion during the Khilafat of first Khalifah Abu Bakr (radiallah ta’ala anhu). And then went whole-sale Khawarij in the Khilafat of Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Following sections will shed light onto this if Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) permitted.

3.5 Change Of Wind And Banu Tamim Become The Loosers:

It is reported in Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said; Banu Aslam, Banu Ghifar, Banu Muzainah, Banu Juhainah, Banu Ashja are better then; Banu Tamim, Banu Amir, Banu Asad, Banu Ghatafan:“Abu Bakra reported from the Messenger of Allah that Aslam, Ghifar, Muzaina and Juhaina are better than Banu Tamim, Banu Amir and their allies Banu Asad and Ghatfan.” [Ref: Muslim, B31, H6128] “Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger as saying: The tribes of Ashja', Ghifar and Muzaina and from the tribe of Juhaina they are better than Banu Tamim, Banu Amir and the allies of Asad and Ghatfan.” [Ref: Muslim, B31, H6123] And in the following Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is reported to have said; Banu Aslam, Banu Ghifar, Banu Muzainah are better then already meantion including Banu Amir Ibn Sa’sa’ah: “Abu Bakra reported on the authority of his father that Allah's Messenger said: What is your view if (it is said that) Juhaina, Aslam, Ghifar were better than Banu Tamim, Banu 'Abdullah b. Ghatfan and 'Amir b. Sa'sa'a' respectively (then what would be status of the latter one)? He said this in a loud voice. They said: Allah's Messenger, they would be definitely at a loss and disadvantage. Thereupon he said: They (the first group) are decidedly better than the others; and in the hadith transmitted on the authority of Abu Kuraib the words are: It you were to find that Juhaina, Muzaina and Aslam and Ghifar (are better than ...).” [Ref: Muslim, B31, H6130] “Narrated Abu Bakrah: That the Messenger of Allah said: "Aslam, Ghifar, and Muzainah are better than Tamim, Asad, Ghatafan, and Banu Amir bin Sa'sa'ah," prolonging his voice when saying it.” The companions then realized that these tribes have lost their standing and said: “So the people said: "They have been treacherous and have lost." He said: "So these are better than them." [Ref: Tirmadhi, B49, H4333] Their treachery was that they attacked the pilgrims of Hajj even though they had accepted Islam and had pledged alliance to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam):  “Abu Bakra reported from his father that al-Aqra Ibn Habis reported that he came to Allah's Messenger and said to him: ‘How did the tribes of Aslam, Ghifar, Muzaina (and I think he also said Juhaina and the narrator is in doubt about it) owe allegiance to you, whereas they plundered the pilgrims?’” [Ref: Muslim, B31, H6126] Land of Najd remained land of bandits and high-way robbers until the Wahhabis and Saudis came about. And they continued to torment the Muslims of surrounding areas with their raids and rebellions until Saudi Wahhabiyyah was established and they remained the loosers uptil then and are greater loosers at present then in past.

3.6 - Delegation Of Banu Tamim Refuses Good Tidings:

It is recorded in many Ahadith that a delegation from Banu Tamim came to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and he gave them good tidings: “Narrated Imran bin Hussein: A delegation from Banu Tamim came to the Prophet. The Prophet said: "Accept the good tidings, O Banu Tamim!" They said: "O Allah's Messenger! You have given us good tidings, so give us (something)." Signs of displeasure appeared on his face. Then another delegation from Yemen came and he said (to them): "Accept the good tidings, for Banu Tamim refuses to accept them." They replied: "We have accepted them, O Allah's Messenger!" [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H651] The good tidings were accepted by people of Yemen but delegation representing Banu Tamim wanted material wealth and refused. A Hadith mentions Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) distributing gold alloy between the chiefs of various tribes of Najd: “It was narrated that Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri said: "When Ali was in Yemen, he sent some gold that was still enclosed in rock to the Prophet who distributed it among Al-Aqra Bin Habis Al-Handhali who belonged to Banu Mujashi, Uyaynah Bin Badr Al-Fazari, Alqamah Bin Ulathah Al-Amiri, who belonged to Banu Kilab and Zaid Al-Khail At-Ta'ee, who belonged to Banu Nabhan. The Quraish and the Ansar became angry and said: 'He gives to the chiefs of Najd and ignores us!' He said: 'I am seeking to win them over (firmly to Islam).' Then a man with sunken eyes, a bulging forehead, a thick beard and a shaven head came and said: 'O Muhammad, fear Allah!' He said: 'Who will obey Allah if I do not?” [Ref: Nisaee, B37, H4106] And I am of understanding the delegation which visited Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) from Banu Tamim were these same men. Who originally refused good tidings of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) in favour of material wealth. And Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) later on went to distribute to them gold alloy sent by Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu). And part of this delegation of Banu Tamim was Abdullah Ibn Hurqus aka Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi al-Najdi who is reported to have accused Prophet (sallallahua layhi wa aalihi was’sallam) unfairly distributing the gold alloy. Other Ahadith identify this man by his name. Anyhow it is established Banu Tamim refused good tidings (of Islam, Iman, kindness) for material wealth. And from Ahadith it is also established they became the loosers in judgment of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) when they raided caravans of pilgrims travelling for Hajj and when their delegation refused the good tidings. And the effect of their refusal and raids was demonstrated.

3.7 - Banu Tamim And Its Role In Reviving Khariji Apostasy:

After the death of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) Banu Mudhar and its off-shoot tribes; including Banu Tamim were involved in rebellions and they gave rise to false claimants of Prophet-hood; including Musaylmah Ibn Kazzab. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) foretold group of Satan is in East (of Madinah) and told it will emerge from East. He also told group of Satan would emerge from Najd (land of Banu Mudhar and its off-shoot Banu Tamim). And Ahadith establish Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamimi and other Khariji leaders who fought against Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) were from Banu Tamim. Then throughout the centuries uptil middle of seventeenth century Banu Tamim and its branches were invovled in rebellions and revived Kharijism where ever they could. And they will continue to do so until last of their group appears in time of Dajjal and joins with Dajjal to fight against Muslims. And this would be true to following prophetic words: “Narrated Abu Bakra: The Prophet said: "Do you think that the tribes of Juhaina, Muzaina, Aslam and Ghifar are better than the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani Asad, Bani `Abdullah bin Ghatafan and Bani Amir bin Sasaa?" A man said: "They were unsuccessful and losers." The Prophet added: "(Yes) they are better than the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani Asad, Bani Abdullah Bin Ghatafan and Bani Amir Bin Sasasa." [Ref: Bukhari, B56, H718]

3.8 - Freeing Of Slave Girl Because She Is Decendent Of Ismail (alayhis salam):

A Hadith records following words of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) are recorded: “Narrated Amr Bin Maimun: Whoever recites (La ilaha illal-lah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahul- hamd wa huwa 'ala kulli shai'in qadir.) it  ten times will be as if he manumitted one of Ishmael's descendants. Abu Aiyub narrated the same Hadith from the Prophet saying, "(Whoever recites it ten times) will be as if he had manumitted one of Ishmael's descendants." [Ref: Bukhari, B75, H413] Note there is no restriction of any particular tribe in this Hadith only clause is reward of it is like freeing a descendent of Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). Therefore it applies to all the tribes and people which had been enslaved but were descendents of Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). Brother Abdullah quoted following part of Hadith as proof of virtue of Banu Tamim: “Aisha had a slave-girl from that tribe, and the Prophet said to Aisha: "Manumit her as she is a descendant of Ishmael (the Prophet)." The fact is Hadith itself is evident; reason for which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) asked Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha) to free the female slave was because she is descendent of Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). In other words Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) demonstrated great respect for Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). From this incident it may seem Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) distinguished Banu Tamim from other tribes. Yet the fact is Banu Tamim is not the only tribe descended from Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). If one carrys out research into this it will reveal there were at minimum twenty-five tribes which descended from Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam). Had Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said free this slave-girl because she is from Banu Tamim then it would have been exclusive merit but words of Hadith were: “Aisha had a slave-girl from that tribe, and the Prophet said to Aisha: "Manumit her as she is a descendant of Ishmael (the Prophet).” [Ref: Bukhari, B46, H719] In other words if the slave-girl belong to any other tribe which had descended from Prophet Ismail (alayhis salam) then these words would have applied to that tribe also and do apply to all his descendants. And therefore Banu Tamim was not uniquely conferred this merit. Note it was established; Bani Tamim lost their standing and became loosers.

3.9 - The Criteria On Which True Merit Is Judged:

True virtue/merit is in correct creed and acting upon injunctions of Shari’ah. Worship of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), charity, compassion, mercy, enjoining good and forbidding all that which Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and His Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) instructed. There is no true merit other then these, racial, tribal, color, national, and all other merits can be negated, become void if the fundamentals are incorrect. And with correct fundamentals any person of any standing, race, tribe, color, national, is better then a Fasiq and Kafir of any other race, color, tribe, standing. If Amr is descendent of a Prophet, Companion, even Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and Amr is upon correct fundamentals then best way to honor respect the ancestor is to respect Amr and to treat Amr with kindness. With regards to Banu Tamim the good of them are to be loved and respected due to their adherance to Quran and prophetic teaching. And the evil from them are to be treated as they deserve and no quarter should be given and none should be expected from them because their barbarity and lack of mercy have been narrated and demonstrated by them. And to end with words which are tacitly approved Sunnah, andwords of companion: “… the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani Asad, Bani Abdullah bin Ghatafan and Bani Amir bin Sasaa?" A man said: "They were unsuccessful and losers."

4.0 - Khawarij The Dogs Of Hell-Fire And Barelwis:

“We often find Barelwi calling himself a dog. Let's see what Quran and Sunnah say about it: “It was narrated that Ibn Awfa said:"The Messenger of Allah said: 'The Khawarij are the dogs of Hell.'" (Sahih).” (Sunan Ibn Majah, Book 1, Hadith 173) 1-Parable of Disbeliever is that of a Dog: Allah Says,''And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he [still] pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought.''(Al-Quran Surah Araaf Ayat-176)

4.1 - Attempt To Malign Muslims And Discredit Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah:

In Urdu, person is called; Gad’dha (i.e. donkey) to mean stupid, or shay’rh (i.e. lion) to mean brave, or powerful, or loomar’h (i.e. fox) to indicate sly/shrewd person, or kutta (i.e. dog, rude usage) to indicate someone is foul mouthed. Muslims of subcontinent sometimes say: I am Sag e RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Meaning: I am dog of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). It is expression of humility, loyalty and guardianship. Dogs are very loyal to their owner/master, its an animal which is considered lowly, and guards the house of its master. And implication is: I am lowly but loyal to RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Brother Abdullah is using the Sag (i.e. dog, polite usage) to fit Hadith of Khawarij on Muslims of subcontinent via some weird logic. All praises are for Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), the best of planners. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has setup Iblees incarnate and for His plan to demonstrate we will have to ignore the Hadith he quoted until an appointed time. Brother Abdullah’s heading: “Parable of disbeliever is that of a dog.” This demonstrates brother Abdullah was to apply a verse upon us Muslims which was revealed regarding the disbelievers. He quoted the following verse: “And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he (still) pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our verses. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought. “ [Ref: 7:176] Applying the verses revealed for disbelievers upon Muslims and interpreting them as if they were about Muslims is one way to identify Khawarij according Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu):  “And the statement of Allah: 'Allah will not mislead a people after He has guided them, until He makes clear to them what to avoid.'And Ibn Umar used to consider them (the Khawarij and the Mulhidun) the worst of Allah's creatures and said: "These people took some verses that had been revealed concerning the disbelievers and interpreted them as describing the believers.[7] [Ref: Bukhari, V9, P49, Chap6: Killing The Khawarij And Mulhidun] Now coming to following Hadith of brother Abdullah: “It was narrated that Ibn Awfa said:"The Messenger of Allah said: 'The Khawarij are the dogs of Hell.'" [Ref: Majah, B1, H173] Indeed Khawarij are dogs of hell-fire. In actuality this applies to him because he applied verse of Quran revealed for Kafirs upon us Muslims. And generally this Hadith applies to Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab and all the Wahhabis because they all engage in this activity. And this is a sign, a characteristic of Khawarij. Their books are filled with such unjust applications; Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab’s; Kitab at-Tawheed is proof of this. Therefore the dogs of hell-fire are Wahhabis even if they don’t and won’t acknowledge it.

5.0 - Superficial And Fast Recitation Of Quran By Khawarij:

Hadith-29: “Yahya reported: I and 'Abdullah b. Yazid set out till we came to Abu Salama. We sent a messenger to him (in his house in order to inform him about our arrival) and he came … He (Yahya) then narrated that Abdullah b Amr b. al-As told him: I used to observe fast uninterruptedly and recited the (whole of the) Qur'an every night. It (the uninterrupted fasting and recital of the Qur'in every night) was mentioned to the Apostle of Allah or he sent for me, and I went to him and he said to me: I have been informed that you fast continuously and recite (the whole of the Qur'An) every night. I said: Apostle of Allah, it is right, but I covet thereby nothing but good, whereupon he said: It suffices for you that you should observe fast for three days during every month. I said: Apostle of Allah I am capable of doing more than this. He said: ... He (also) said: Recite the Qur'an during every month. I said: Apostle of Allah, I am capable of doing more than this, whereupon he said: Recite it in twenty days; recite it in ten days. I said: I am capable of doing more than this, whereupon he said: Recite it every week, and do not exceed beyond this, … The Apostle of Allah  had told me: 'You do not know you may live long (thus and bear the hardships for a long time), and I accepted that which the Apostle of Allah had told me. When I grew old I wished I had availed myself of the concession (granted by) the Apostle of Allah.” (Ref: Muslim, B6 : H2588) Hadith-30: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: Wahb ibn Munabbih said: Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet; In how many days should one complete the recitation of the Qur'an? He said: In forty days. He then said: In one month. He again said: In twenty days. He then said: In fifteen days. He then said: In ten days. Finally he said: In seven days. (Ref: Bukhari, Kitab as-Swalaat, 1390) Hadith-31: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet said: He who recites the Qur'an in a period less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Bukhari, Kitab as-swalaat, 1389) Hadith-32: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet said: He who recites the Qur'an in a period less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Abu Dawud, Book 6 : Hadith 1389) Hadith-33: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-As:Yazid ibn Abdullah said that Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet: In how many days should I complete the recitation of the whole Qur'an, Apostle of Allah? He replied: In one month. He said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. He kept on repeating these words and lessening the period until he said: Complete its recitation in seven days. He again said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. The Prophet  said: He who finishes the recitation of the Qur'an in less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Abu Dawud, Book 6,Hadith 1385) Hadith-34: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-As: Wahb ibn Munabbih said: Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet:  In how many days should one complete the recitation of the Qur'an? He said: In forty days. He then said: In one month. He again said: In twenty days. He then said: In fifteen days. He then said: In ten days. Finally he said: In seven days. (Ref: Abu Dawud,  Book 6, Hadith 1390) Hadith-35: “Narrated Zaid binWahb:Hudhaifa saw a person who was not performing the bowing and prostrations perfectly. He said to hi, "You have not prayed and if you should die you would die on a religion other than that of Muhammad." (Ref: Bukhari, Book 12, Volume 1, Hadith 757) Hadith-36: Narrated by Yusair bin 'Amr:I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, "Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about Al-Khawarij?" He said, "I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq. "There will appear in it (i.e, Iraq) some people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats,and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow darts through the game's body.'" (Ref: Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Hadith 68) Hadith-37: Zaid b. Wahb Jahani reported and he was among the squadron which wall under the command of Ali and which set out (to curb the activities) of the Khwarij. Ali said: O people, I heard the Messenger of Allah say: There would arise from my Ummah a people who would recite the Qur'an, and your recital would seem insignificant as compared with their recital, your prayer as compared with their prayer, and your fast compared with their fast. They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them. Their prayer does not get beyond their collar bone; they would swerve through Islam just as the arrow passes through the prey. If the squadron which is to encounter them were to know (what great boon) has been assured to them by their Apostle they would completely rely upon this deed (alone and cease to do other good deeds), and their (that of the Khwarij) distinctive mark is that there would be (among them) a person whose wrist would be without the arm, and the end of his wrist would be fleshy like the nipple of the breast on which there would be white hair. … By Allah, I believe that these are the people (against whom you have been commanded to fight and get reward) for they have shed forbidden blood, and raided the animals of the people. So go forth in the name of Allah (to fight against them). … Abdullah b. Wahb al-Rasibi was at the head of the Khwarij when we encountered them. He (Abdullah) said to his army: Throw the spears and draw out your swords from their sheaths, for I fear that they would attack you as they attacked you on the day of Harura. They went back and threw their spears and drew out their swords, and people fought against them with spears and they were killed one after another. Only two persons were killed among the people (among the army led by Hadrat Ali) on that day. Ali  said: Find out from among them (the dead bodies of the Khwarij) (the maimed). They searched but did not find him. Ali then himself stood up and (walked) till he came to the people who had been killed one after another. He ('Ali) said: Search them to the last, and then ('Ali's companions) found him (the dead body of the maimed) near the earth. He (Hadrat Ali) then pronounced ‘Allah is the Great!’ and then said, Allah told the Truth and His Messenger conveyed it. Then there stood before him Abida Salmani who said: Commander of the Believers, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He, (tell me) whether you heard this hadith from the Messenger of Allah. He said: Yes, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He. He asked him to take an oath thrice and he took the oath.” (Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333)”

5.1 - Recitation Of Quran According To Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah:

Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) states: “Or increase a little upon it, and recite the Qur’an slowly in stages.” [Ref: 73:4] "Move not your tongue with it, to hasten with it." [Ref: 75:16] “This is a Book which We have sent down upon you, a blessed Book, for them to ponder upon its verses, and for men of intellect to accept advice.” [Ref: 38:29] Quran was sent so the Muslims can ponder over the verses of Quran and it is supposed to be recited slowly to achieve this. Brother Abdullah already has quoted Ahadith in which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) instructed that Quran be recited slowly and not rushed. Very fast recitation of Quran where pronounciation of words is wholesale mutilated to extent that mind cannot encampass what it has recited is a evil innovation. It was something which did not exist during the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’allam) but it was a sign of a people to come: “Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah: The Messenger of Allah came to us while we were reciting the Qur'an, and there were among us bedouins and the non-Arabs. He said: Recite, all is well. In the near future there will appear people who will straighten it (the Qur'an) as an arrow is straightened. They will recite it quickly and not slowly.” [Ref: Abi Dawud, B3, H829] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) stated in another version of Hadith: “Recite it before there appear people who will recite it and straighten it as an arrow is straightened. They will get their reward for it in this world and will not get it in the Hereafter. [Ref: Abi Dawud, B2, H830] Straightening of Quran referrs to making no distinction between similar sounding words and without paying heed to pauses and elongating recitation where it should be. Instead they would recite Quran flatly in fast speed paying no attention to any rule of Tajweed. And Prophet (sallallahua layhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said they will only get reward in the world and not in hereafter. Unfortunately during Ramadhan some Qaris recite the Quran as Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) described. Those who do they should be politely and respectfully rectified. This is the teaching and Minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah.

5.2 - General Summary Of Main Theme Of Quoted Material:

From Ahadith twenty-nine to thirty-four Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) prohibits completing recitation of entire Quran any less then three days on grounds that any quicker would make it difficult for person to recite the Quran with understanding. These Ahadith by themselves have nothing to do with the topic of Najd or Khawarij. Hadith thirty-five says if prostration/bowing isn’t perfect then you will die on Fitrah of another and not on fitrah of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). In other words you will die doing a action which isn’t Sunnah of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). But due to erroneous translation; a companion is made to say; if your bowing and prostration isn’t perfect then you would not be acting and dieing upon religion of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). This is very extreme because imperfect prostration and bowing cannot and will not nullify any Muslims religion. This is something a Khariji would say and not a companion of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). And this translation of Hadith has been produced by brother Abdullah’s co-religionist Mohsin Khan so the Kharijism seeps into translation here and there. Ahadith thirty-six and thirty-seven on their own have no direct connection with location of Najd; like all the previous Ahadith. Even though individually none of these Ahadith have direct connection with the mentioned subject but brother Abdullah is employing them as whole to imply from key points of Ahadith twenty-nine to thirty-five mention trait of Khawarij in light of Ahadith thirty-six and thirty-seven. And Muslims (i.e. Barelwis) have these traits therefore they are Khawarij.

5.3 - Companion Reciting The Quran Too Fast:

Hadith twenty-nine to thirty-four; a companions states he fasts whole month and recites entire Quran every night. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) told him to fast three days a month, he sought more saying he is capable of more, so Prophet instructed him to; fast a day and miss a day. He also instructed the companion to complete recitation of entire Quran in forty days, thirty/twenty-nine days, twenty days, fifteen days, companion desired more then Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) made concession for him to seven days and then permitted three days. From this it becomes clear that companion was reciting the Quran too fast and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said any faster then three day completion of Quran would mean you do not understand the Quran. And even brother Abdullah agrees with this because he titled the section as: “Recitation of Quran in Haste.”

5.4 - Khawarij Reciting Quran While Not Understanding It:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has 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; while modesty and gentleness are the characteristics of the owners of sheep." [Ref: Bukhari, B54, H520] “And harshness and callousness of the hearts is found amongst the rude owners of the camels, who drive them behind their tails (to the direction), where emerge the two groups of Satan, they are (from) the tribes of Rabi'a and Mudar.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H83] To put it simply the owners of camels/horses in the East are the tribes of Rabia and Mudhar and they are busy with them and pay no attention to religion and these tribes are from where group of Satan aka Khawarij was to emerge. Problem with the Khawarij was not of reciting the Quran too fast it was them not properly being accquainted with principles of Tafsir. They had no paid attention to learning about the fundamentals which help understanding of Quran and only focused on recititation of Quran and result was Khawarij. For example in Hadith which brother Abdullah quoted following words are quoted: “They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333] They quoted hukum is for Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) against Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Did they recite it too fast or did they not understand the verse of Quran? Their understanding of verse was simply superficial/shallow. The verse merely stated as Ilah hukum is of only Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) quoted verse in which it was established hukum can be of Allah’s (subhanahu wa ta’ala) creation but hukum as Ilah is only of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Following Ahadith are regarding same man for whom Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) said needs to be found in Hadith-37 which Abdullah referrenced. And problem of them is superficial/glib recitation of Quran: “Should I not strike his neck? Upon this he said: No. Then he turned away, and Khalid the Sword of Allah stood up against him, and said: Prophet of Allah. shall I not strike off his neck? He said, No, and then said: A people would rise from his progeny who would recite the Book of Allah glibly and fluently. Umar said: I think he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them like Thamud." [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2320, here] “He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur'an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey. I conceive that he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them as were killed the (people of) Thamud.” [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2319, here] Their glib/superficial recitation is result of not devoting time to learn about Deen of Islam and not learning about fundamental principles which enable understanding of Quran. And had nothing to do with fast recitation of Quran. Every field requires understanding of fundamentals without which books of that field cannot and will not be understood by readers even if they read them fast or slow. Quite while back someone handed me their biomedical science dissertation for proof reading. Even though I could read the words and understood the symbols I read it in its entirity twice without understanding anything. I could have read it really fast, or slow, or spelt out each word, it wouldn’t have made any difference because I lacked prerequisite knowledge of subject. Same applies to the sheep and camel herders of Najd. They weren’t aware of Sunnah method of Tafsir and due to is were unable to understand the Quran correctly. And the Najdi Kharijis have still not learnt the methodology and they continue to apply verses of Quran revealed for disbelievers upon those who say; none has the right to be worshipped except Allah. And this was also sign of Khawarij to descend from Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamim: He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur'an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey.” [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2319, here] Alhasi glib recitation, and Quran not going below their throats is about Khawarij not understanding the Quran correctly. They will have shallow understanding of Quran and will assume it supports them: “They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333] Glib and Quran not going below their throat does not referr to inability of understanding of Quran which results from fast recitation of Quran but it referrs to shallow superficial understanding resulting from lack of proper understanding of methodology of Tafsir. Rest assured one who has understood rules of Tafsir and is able to interpret Quran even if he recites three Qurans a day and even though he will not be able to establish link between various verses of Quran and understand it in depth. But whenever he sits down and recites it slowly and attempts to understand it through legitimate methodology of  Tafsir then nothing will prevent him from understanding it as a verse should be understood.

5.5 - Brother Abdullah Attempted To Establish Ahlus Sunnah Are Khawarij And Failed:

By establishing Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) forbade fast recitation of Quran brother Abdullah hoped to imply because some of Barelwis recite the Quran fast therefore they are Khawarij. He failed to prove that Ahlus Sunnah are Khawarij because the Ahadith he quoted to base his argument are about glib and superficial recitation of Quran like my act of proof-reading the dissertation. Brother Abdullah is applying these Ahadith on fast recitation of Quran. The difference between the companion who recited the Quran so fast that he finished it in a day and Khariji glib recitation is that companion’s fast recitation would have unabled him to understand the Quran but whenever he had slowed down and pondered over the verses he would have understood them. Why? Why? Why? He knew the principles of Tafsir. Khawarij on other hand were/are incapable of understanding the Quran because they lacked proper know how of Tafsir because they loved their sheeps more then their religion. As a result they cannot and will not understand the Quran. And to this I would add Ahadith also because brother Abdullah, and countless others have demonstrated that they also cannot understand Ahadith properly. And best proof of it is brother Abdullah applying Hadith of glib recitation on fast recitation of Quran. More importantly he did not judge the matter in light of entire package of Ahadith which are related to Khawarij. It is not impossible for a person to fullfill one condition of a prophesy. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said name of Mahdi (rahimullah) will be as his name (i.e. Muhammad). It is not impossible to find a person with name Muhammad. I am Muhammad in name. Will that prove to you I am Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah)? Every sane person would agree that this alone is not qualification of Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah). There are other qualifications and for example he will be from progeny of Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Fatimah (radiallah ta’ala anha), and there are others. Meeting one, or two, or three, or four criterias will not make someone Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah) until a person meets all the requirements. Rather all related criterias have to be met and every major trait known of Khawarij as to be demonstrated before the charge of Khariji can be levelled. Actions of brother Abdullah point to another fundamental difference between methodology of Muslims and Wahhabiyyah. If they see a Muslim prostrating to a grave they will assume grave-worship and issue edict of Mushrik/Kafir. No regard is given to belief of person, intention of person, or knowledge of person. Rather similarity of Zahiri action is suffient to be Mushrik in Wahhabism. The corner stone of Wahhabism is: SIMILARITY OF ZAHIRI ACTION ESTABLISHES SHIRK. Mushrik Hindu performsTawaf of his Idol. An idiot Muslim performs Tawaf around the grave. Wahhabi will say this is same action, grave id idol, both are Hindu Mushrikeen. Just one action and person becomes a Mushrik Hindu. Methodology employed by Wahhabiyyah to determine is very superficial and no regard is given to details. Fast Quran recited by Amr, and fast Quran recited by Khariji, Amr is Khariji. What about maybe Amr doesn’t know? And therefore lets talk to him and encourage him to follow prophetic Sunnah. Fatwah of Khariji/Mushrik is their first priority. And even if they hold the Fatwah it wouldn’t be because they consider you Muslim rather tactfully will avoid offending you to win a convert to Wahhabism. Point being made is Wahhabi methodology of judgment looks for similarity of action and not of belief and other aspects. Coming back to main point of discussion reciting the Quran. Brother Abdullah granted no concession for the fact that the Hadith; Khawarij will recite Quran glibly and it will not go below their throat is about Khawarij. And two the Hadith doesn’t mean what he assumed it means. Yet he had the audacity to apply the Ahadith of Khawarij upon Muslims whom he is well aware of are avowed enemies of Khawarij in belief, in Fiqh, and in principle methodology. When in reality he has demonstrated he has Khariji methodology of applying the Quranic verses revealed for disbelievers upon Muslims. And his superficial understanding of verses of Quran and Ahadith he quoted (i.e. Hadith 36/37) only goes on to establish brother Abdullah is on path of Khawarij of Najd.

4.1 - Attempt To Malign Muslims And Discredit Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah:

In Urdu, person is called; Gad’dha (i.e. donkey) to mean stupid, or shay’rh (i.e. lion) to mean brave, or powerful, or loomar’h (i.e. fox) to indicate sly/shrewd person, or kutta (i.e. dog, rude usage) to indicate someone is foul mouthed. Muslims of subcontinent sometimes say: I am Sag e RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Meaning: I am dog of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). It is expression of humility, loyalty and guardianship. Dogs are very loyal to their owner/master, its an animal which is considered lowly, and guards the house of its master. And implication is: I am lowly but loyal to RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Brother Abdullah is using the Sag (i.e. dog, polite usage) to fit Hadith of Khawarij on Muslims of subcontinent via some weird logic. All praises are for Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), the best of planners. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has setup Iblees incarnate and for His plan to demonstrate we will have to ignore the Hadith he quoted until an appointed time. Brother Abdullah’s heading: “Parable of disbeliever is that of a dog.” This demonstrates brother Abdullah was to apply a verse upon us Muslims which was revealed regarding the disbelievers. He quoted the following verse: “And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he (still) pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our verses. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought. “ [Ref: 7:176] Applying the verses revealed for disbelievers upon Muslims and interpreting them as if they were about Muslims is one way to identify Khawarij according Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu):  “And the statement of Allah: 'Allah will not mislead a people after He has guided them, until He makes clear to them what to avoid.'And Ibn Umar used to consider them (the Khawarij and the Mulhidun) the worst of Allah's creatures and said: "These people took some verses that had been revealed concerning the disbelievers and interpreted them as describing the believers.”[7] [Ref: Bukhari, V9, P49, Chap6: Killing The Khawarij And Mulhidun] Now coming to following Hadith of brother Abdullah: “It was narrated that Ibn Awfa said:"The Messenger of Allah said: 'The Khawarij are the dogs of Hell.'" [Ref: Majah, B1, H173] Indeed Khawarij are dogs of hell-fire. In actuality this applies to him because he applied verse of Quran revealed for Kafirs upon us Muslims. And generally this Hadith applies to Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab and all the Wahhabis because they all engage in this activity. And this is a sign, a characteristic of Khawarij. Their books are filled with such unjust applications; Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab’s; Kitab at-Tawheed is proof of this. Therefore the dogs of hell-fire are Wahhabis even if they don’t and won’t acknowledge it.

5.0 - Superficial And Fast Recitation Of Quran By Khawarij:

Hadith-29: “Yahya reported: I and 'Abdullah b. Yazid set out till we came to Abu Salama. We sent a messenger to him (in his house in order to inform him about our arrival) and he came … He (Yahya) then narrated that Abdullah b Amr b. al-As told him: I used to observe fast uninterruptedly and recited the (whole of the) Qur'an every night. It (the uninterrupted fasting and recital of the Qur'in every night) was mentioned to the Apostle of Allah or he sent for me, and I went to him and he said to me: I have been informed that you fast continuously and recite (the whole of the Qur'An) every night. I said: Apostle of Allah, it is right, but I covet thereby nothing but good, whereupon he said: It suffices for you that you should observe fast for three days during every month. I said: Apostle of Allah I am capable of doing more than this. He said: ... He (also) said: Recite the Qur'an during every month. I said: Apostle of Allah, I am capable of doing more than this, whereupon he said: Recite it in twenty days; recite it in ten days. I said: I am capable of doing more than this, whereupon he said: Recite it every week, and do not exceed beyond this, … The Apostle of Allah  had told me: 'You do not know you may live long (thus and bear the hardships for a long time), and I accepted that which the Apostle of Allah had told me. When I grew old I wished I had availed myself of the concession (granted by) the Apostle of Allah.” (Ref: Muslim, B6 : H2588) Hadith-30: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: Wahb ibn Munabbih said: Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet; In how many days should one complete the recitation of the Qur'an? He said: In forty days. He then said: In one month. He again said: In twenty days. He then said: In fifteen days. He then said: In ten days. Finally he said: In seven days. (Ref: Bukhari, Kitab as-Swalaat, 1390) Hadith-31: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet said: He who recites the Qur'an in a period less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Bukhari, Kitab as-swalaat, 1389) Hadith-32: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet said: He who recites the Qur'an in a period less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Abu Dawud, Book 6 : Hadith 1389) Hadith-33: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-As:Yazid ibn Abdullah said that Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet: In how many days should I complete the recitation of the whole Qur'an, Apostle of Allah? He replied: In one month. He said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. He kept on repeating these words and lessening the period until he said: Complete its recitation in seven days. He again said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. The Prophet  said: He who finishes the recitation of the Qur'an in less than three days does not understand it. (Ref: Abu Dawud, Book 6,Hadith 1385) Hadith-34: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-As: Wahb ibn Munabbih said: Abdullah ibn Amr asked the Prophet:  In how many days should one complete the recitation of the Qur'an? He said: In forty days. He then said: In one month. He again said: In twenty days. He then said: In fifteen days. He then said: In ten days. Finally he said: In seven days. (Ref: Abu Dawud,  Book 6, Hadith 1390) Hadith-35: “Narrated Zaid binWahb:Hudhaifa saw a person who was not performing the bowing and prostrations perfectly. He said to hi, "You have not prayed and if you should die you would die on a religion other than that of Muhammad." (Ref: Bukhari, Book 12, Volume 1, Hadith 757) Hadith-36: Narrated by Yusair bin 'Amr:I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, "Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about Al-Khawarij?" He said, "I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq. "There will appear in it (i.e, Iraq) some people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats,and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow darts through the game's body.'" (Ref: Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Hadith 68) Hadith-37: Zaid b. Wahb Jahani reported and he was among the squadron which wall under the command of Ali and which set out (to curb the activities) of the Khwarij. Ali said: O people, I heard the Messenger of Allah say: There would arise from my Ummah a people who would recite the Qur'an, and your recital would seem insignificant as compared with their recital, your prayer as compared with their prayer, and your fast compared with their fast. They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them. Their prayer does not get beyond their collar bone; they would swerve through Islam just as the arrow passes through the prey. If the squadron which is to encounter them were to know (what great boon) has been assured to them by their Apostle they would completely rely upon this deed (alone and cease to do other good deeds), and their (that of the Khwarij) distinctive mark is that there would be (among them) a person whose wrist would be without the arm, and the end of his wrist would be fleshy like the nipple of the breast on which there would be white hair. … By Allah, I believe that these are the people (against whom you have been commanded to fight and get reward) for they have shed forbidden blood, and raided the animals of the people. So go forth in the name of Allah (to fight against them). … Abdullah b. Wahb al-Rasibi was at the head of the Khwarij when we encountered them. He (Abdullah) said to his army: Throw the spears and draw out your swords from their sheaths, for I fear that they would attack you as they attacked you on the day of Harura. They went back and threw their spears and drew out their swords, and people fought against them with spears and they were killed one after another. Only two persons were killed among the people (among the army led by Hadrat Ali) on that day. Ali  said: Find out from among them (the dead bodies of the Khwarij) (the maimed). They searched but did not find him. Ali then himself stood up and (walked) till he came to the people who had been killed one after another. He ('Ali) said: Search them to the last, and then ('Ali's companions) found him (the dead body of the maimed) near the earth. He (Hadrat Ali) then pronounced ‘Allah is the Great!’ and then said, Allah told the Truth and His Messenger conveyed it. Then there stood before him Abida Salmani who said: Commander of the Believers, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He, (tell me) whether you heard this hadith from the Messenger of Allah. He said: Yes, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He. He asked him to take an oath thrice and he took the oath.” (Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333)”

5.1 - Recitation Of Quran According To Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah:

Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) states: “Or increase a little upon it, and recite the Qur’an slowly in stages.” [Ref: 73:4] "Move not your tongue with it, to hasten with it." [Ref: 75:16] “This is a Book which We have sent down upon you, a blessed Book, for them to ponder upon its verses, and for men of intellect to accept advice.” [Ref: 38:29] Quran was sent so the Muslims can ponder over the verses of Quran and it is supposed to be recited slowly to achieve this. Brother Abdullah already has quoted Ahadith in which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) instructed that Quran be recited slowly and not rushed. Very fast recitation of Quran where pronounciation of words is wholesale mutilated to extent that mind cannot encampass what it has recited is a evil innovation. It was something which did not exist during the life time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’allam) but it was a sign of a people to come: “Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah: The Messenger of Allah came to us while we were reciting the Qur'an, and there were among us bedouins and the non-Arabs. He said: Recite, all is well. In the near future there will appear people who will straighten it (the Qur'an) as an arrow is straightened. They will recite it quickly and not slowly.” [Ref: Abi Dawud, B3, H829] Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) stated in another version of Hadith: “Recite it before there appear people who will recite it and straighten it as an arrow is straightened. They will get their reward for it in this world and will not get it in the Hereafter. [Ref: Abi Dawud, B2, H830] Straightening of Quran referrs to making no distinction between similar sounding words and without paying heed to pauses and elongating recitation where it should be. Instead they would recite Quran flatly in fast speed paying no attention to any rule of Tajweed. And Prophet (sallallahua layhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said they will only get reward in the world and not in hereafter. Unfortunately during Ramadhan some Qaris recite the Quran as Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) described. Those who do they should be politely and respectfully rectified. This is the teaching and Minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah.

5.2 - General Summary Of Main Theme Of Quoted Material:

From Ahadith twenty-nine to thirty-four Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) prohibits completing recitation of entire Quran any less then three days on grounds that any quicker would make it difficult for person to recite the Quran with understanding. These Ahadith by themselves have nothing to do with the topic of Najd or Khawarij. Hadith thirty-five says if prostration/bowing isn’t perfect then you will die on Fitrah of another and not on fitrah of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). In other words you will die doing a action which isn’t Sunnah of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). But due to erroneous translation; a companion is made to say; if your bowing and prostration isn’t perfect then you would not be acting and dieing upon religion of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). This is very extreme because imperfect prostration and bowing cannot and will not nullify any Muslims religion. This is something a Khariji would say and not a companion of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). And this translation of Hadith has been produced by brother Abdullah’s co-religionist Mohsin Khan so the Kharijism seeps into translation here and there. Ahadith thirty-six and thirty-seven on their own have no direct connection with location of Najd; like all the previous Ahadith. Even though individually none of these Ahadith have direct connection with the mentioned subject but brother Abdullah is employing them as whole to imply from key points of Ahadith twenty-nine to thirty-five mention trait of Khawarij in light of Ahadith thirty-six and thirty-seven. And Muslims (i.e. Barelwis) have these traits therefore they are Khawarij.

5.3 - Companion Reciting The Quran Too Fast:

Hadith twenty-nine to thirty-four; a companions states he fasts whole month and recites entire Quran every night. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) told him to fast three days a month, he sought more saying he is capable of more, so Prophet instructed him to; fast a day and miss a day. He also instructed the companion to complete recitation of entire Quran in forty days, thirty/twenty-nine days, twenty days, fifteen days, companion desired more then Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) made concession for him to seven days and then permitted three days. From this it becomes clear that companion was reciting the Quran too fast and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said any faster then three day completion of Quran would mean you do not understand the Quran. And even brother Abdullah agrees with this because he titled the section as: “Recitation of Quran in Haste.”

5.4 - Khawarij Reciting Quran While Not Understanding It:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has 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; while modesty and gentleness are the characteristics of the owners of sheep." [Ref: Bukhari, B54, H520] “And harshness and callousness of the hearts is found amongst the rude owners of the camels, who drive them behind their tails (to the direction), where emerge the two groups of Satan, they are (from) the tribes of Rabi'a and Mudar.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H83] To put it simply the owners of camels/horses in the East are the tribes of Rabia and Mudhar and they are busy with them and pay no attention to religion and these tribes are from where group of Satan aka Khawarij was to emerge. Problem with the Khawarij was not of reciting the Quran too fast it was them not properly being accquainted with principles of Tafsir. They had no paid attention to learning about the fundamentals which help understanding of Quran and only focused on recititation of Quran and result was Khawarij. For example in Hadith which brother Abdullah quoted following words are quoted: “They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333] They quoted hukum is for Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) against Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Did they recite it too fast or did they not understand the verse of Quran? Their understanding of verse was simply superficial/shallow. The verse merely stated as Ilah hukum is of only Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta’ala anhu) quoted verse in which it was established hukum can be of Allah’s (subhanahu wa ta’ala) creation but hukum as Ilah is only of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Following Ahadith are regarding same man for whom Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) said needs to be found in Hadith-37 which Abdullah referrenced. And problem of them is superficial/glib recitation of Quran: “Should I not strike his neck? Upon this he said: No. Then he turned away, and Khalid the Sword of Allah stood up against him, and said: Prophet of Allah. shall I not strike off his neck? He said, No, and then said: A people would rise from his progeny who would recite the Book of Allah glibly and fluently. Umar said: I think he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them like Thamud." [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2320, here] “He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur'an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey. I conceive that he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them as were killed the (people of) Thamud.” [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2319, here] Their glib/superficial recitation is result of not devoting time to learn about Deen of Islam and not learning about fundamental principles which enable understanding of Quran. And had nothing to do with fast recitation of Quran. Every field requires understanding of fundamentals without which books of that field cannot and will not be understood by readers even if they read them fast or slow. Quite while back someone handed me their biomedical science dissertation for proof reading. Even though I could read the words and understood the symbols I read it in its entirity twice without understanding anything. I could have read it really fast, or slow, or spelt out each word, it wouldn’t have made any difference because I lacked prerequisite knowledge of subject. Same applies to the sheep and camel herders of Najd. They weren’t aware of Sunnah method of Tafsir and due to is were unable to understand the Quran correctly. And the Najdi Kharijis have still not learnt the methodology and they continue to apply verses of Quran revealed for disbelievers upon those who say; none has the right to be worshipped except Allah. And this was also sign of Khawarij to descend from Dhil Khuwaisirah at-Tamim: He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur'an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey.” [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2319, here] Alhasi glib recitation, and Quran not going below their throats is about Khawarij not understanding the Quran correctly. They will have shallow understanding of Quran and will assume it supports them: “They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333] Glib and Quran not going below their throat does not referr to inability of understanding of Quran which results from fast recitation of Quran but it referrs to shallow superficial understanding resulting from lack of proper understanding of methodology of Tafsir. Rest assured one who has understood rules of Tafsir and is able to interpret Quran even if he recites three Qurans a day and even though he will not be able to establish link between various verses of Quran and understand it in depth. But whenever he sits down and recites it slowly and attempts to understand it through legitimate methodology of  Tafsir then nothing will prevent him from understanding it as a verse should be understood.

5.5 - Brother Abdullah Attempted To Establish Ahlus Sunnah Are Khawarij And Failed:

By establishing Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) forbade fast recitation of Quran brother Abdullah hoped to imply because some of Barelwis recite the Quran fast therefore they are Khawarij. He failed to prove that Ahlus Sunnah are Khawarij because the Ahadith he quoted to base his argument are about glib and superficial recitation of Quran like my act of proof-reading the dissertation. Brother Abdullah is applying these Ahadith on fast recitation of Quran. The difference between the companion who recited the Quran so fast that he finished it in a day and Khariji glib recitation is that companion’s fast recitation would have unabled him to understand the Quran but whenever he had slowed down and pondered over the verses he would have understood them. Why? Why? Why? He knew the principles of Tafsir. Khawarij on other hand were/are incapable of understanding the Quran because they lacked proper know how of Tafsir because they loved their sheeps more then their religion. As a result they cannot and will not understand the Quran. And to this I would add Ahadith also because brother Abdullah, and countless others have demonstrated that they also cannot understand Ahadith properly. And best proof of it is brother Abdullah applying Hadith of glib recitation on fast recitation of Quran. More importantly he did not judge the matter in light of entire package of Ahadith which are related to Khawarij. It is not impossible for a person to fullfill one condition of a prophesy. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said name of Mahdi (rahimullah) will be as his name (i.e. Muhammad). It is not impossible to find a person with name Muhammad. I am Muhammad in name. Will that prove to you I am Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah)? Every sane person would agree that this alone is not qualification of Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah). There are other qualifications and for example he will be from progeny of Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Fatimah (radiallah ta’ala anha), and there are others. Meeting one, or two, or three, or four criterias will not make someone Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah) until a person meets all the requirements. Rather all related criterias have to be met and every major trait known of Khawarij as to be demonstrated before the charge of Khariji can be levelled. Actions of brother Abdullah point to another fundamental difference between methodology of Muslims and Wahhabiyyah. If they see a Muslim prostrating to a grave they will assume grave-worship and issue edict of Mushrik/Kafir. No regard is given to belief of person, intention of person, or knowledge of person. Rather similarity of Zahiri action is suffient to be Mushrik in Wahhabism. The corner stone of Wahhabism is: SIMILARITY OF ZAHIRI ACTION ESTABLISHES SHIRK. Mushrik Hindu performsTawaf of his Idol. An idiot Muslim performs Tawaf around the grave. Wahhabi will say this is same action, grave id idol, both are Hindu Mushrikeen. Just one action and person becomes a Mushrik Hindu. Methodology employed by Wahhabiyyah to determine is very superficial and no regard is given to details. Fast Quran recited by Amr, and fast Quran recited by Khariji, Amr is Khariji. What about maybe Amr doesn’t know? And therefore lets talk to him and encourage him to follow prophetic Sunnah. Fatwah of Khariji/Mushrik is their first priority. And even if they hold the Fatwah it wouldn’t be because they consider you Muslim rather tactfully will avoid offending you to win a convert to Wahhabism. Point being made is Wahhabi methodology of judgment looks for similarity of action and not of belief and other aspects. Coming back to main point of discussion reciting the Quran. Brother Abdullah granted no concession for the fact that the Hadith; Khawarij will recite Quran glibly and it will not go below their throat is about Khawarij. And two the Hadith doesn’t mean what he assumed it means. Yet he had the audacity to apply the Ahadith of Khawarij upon Muslims whom he is well aware of are avowed enemies of Khawarij in belief, in Fiqh, and in principle methodology. When in reality he has demonstrated he has Khariji methodology of applying the Quranic verses revealed for disbelievers upon Muslims. And his superficial understanding of verses of Quran and Ahadith he quoted (i.e. Hadith 36/37) only goes on to establish brother Abdullah is on path of Khawarij of Najd.

6.0 - Brother Abdullah’s Evidence Khawarij In Iraq:

Hadith-38: Narrated by Yusair bin 'Amr:I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, "Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about Al-Khawarij?" He said, "I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq. "There will appear in it (i.e, Iraq) some people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats,and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow darts through the game's body.' " (Ref: Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84, Hadith 68) Hadith-39: Narrated Ibn Abi Nu'm: A person asked 'Abdullah bin 'Umar whether a Muslim could kill flies.I heard him saying (in reply). "The people of Iraq are asking about the killing of flies while they themselves murdered the son of the daughter of Allah's Apostle . The Prophet said, They (i.e. Hasan and Husain) are my two sweet basils in this world." (Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 57, Number 96) Hadith-40: Zaid b. Wahb Jahani reported and he was among the squadron which wall under the command of Ali and which set out (to curb the activities) of the Khwarij. Ali said: O people, I heard the Messenger of Allah say: There would arise from my Ummah a people who would recite the Qur'an, and your recital would seem insignificant as compared with their recital, your prayer as compared with their prayer, and your fast compared with their fast. They would recite the Qur'an thinking that it supports them, whereas it is an evidence against them. Their prayer does not get beyond their collar bone; they would swerve through Islam just as the arrow passes through the prey. If the squadron which is to encounter them were to know (what great boon) has been assured to them by their Apostle they would completely rely upon this deed (alone and cease to do other good deeds), and their (that of the Khwarij) distinctive mark is that there would be (among them) a person whose wrist would be without the arm, and the end of his wrist would be fleshy like the nipple of the breast on which there would be white hair. … By Allah, I believe that these are the people (against whom you have been commanded to fight and get reward) for they have shed forbidden blood, and raided the animals of the people. So go forth in the name of Allah (to fight against them). … Abdullah b. Wahb al-Rasibi was at the head of the Khwarij when we encountered them. He (Abdullah) said to his army: Throw the spears and draw out your swords from their sheaths, for I fear that they would attack you as they attacked you on the day of Harura. They went back and threw their spears and drew out their swords, and people fought against them with spears and they were killed one after another. Only two persons were killed among the people (among the army led by Hadrat Ali) on that day. Ali  said: Find out from among them (the dead bodies of the Khwarij) (the maimed). They searched but did not find him. Ali then himself stood up and (walked) till he came to the people who had been killed one after another. He ('Ali) said: Search them to the last, and then ('Ali's companions) found him (the dead body of the maimed) near the earth. He (Hadrat Ali) then pronounced ‘Allah is the Great!’ and then said, Allah told the Truth and His Messenger conveyed it. Then there stood before him Abida Salmani who said: Commander of the Believers, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He, (tell me) whether you heard this hadith from the Messenger of Allah. He said: Yes, by Allah, besides Whom there is no god but He. He asked him to take an oath thrice and he took the oath.” (Ref: Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2333)””

6.1 - Important Information About Quoted Ahadith:

Hadith-38 has been used number of times; Hadith 6, Hadith-15, and Hadith-36. It will be comprehensively will be explained in another article along side Ahadith 11 to 17. Hadith-39 was employed earlier in brother Abdullah’s article as Hadith 5 and it was comprehensively explained in my previous response, here, in section 8.0 to 8.5. Hadith-40 was employed earlier as Hadith-37, and it was part of explaination in section 5.0 to 5.5 of this article.

7.0 - According To Brother Abdullah Hijaz Is Saudi Arabia:

Hadith-41: It is reported on the authority of Jabir b. Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (may peace and, blessings be upon him) observed: The callousness of heart and sternness is in the East and faith is among the people of the Hijaz. (Sahih Muslim Book 001, Hadith Number 0095.) Comments: SubhanAllah! Even the above Hadith proves that Saudi Arabia is not referred as East but it's a blessed Land i.e Hijaz.”

7.1 - East As Direction And East As A Name:

In his lattest quote it seems brother Abdullah is not taking East as direction but as name of region because he said: “SubhanAllah! Even the above Hadith proves that Saudi Arabia is not referred as East but it's a blessed Land i.e Hijaz.” It is true some times regions are recognised by the direction they are located at. In modern example we employ West to mean Europe and America even when sitting in Europe. The reason Europe and America became known as West is because both are West of Middle East and far East. And therefore people of East started to referr to both these regions as the West and eventually it became a common usage to mean said regions. If a man was sitting in Eithiopia and while talking about Arabia he pointed toward East then he would mean Arabia. Or if someone was in Arabia and said a man in Eithiopia pointed toward direction of East; in direction of Arabia then we know he would meant Arabia by East. But is it possible for a man sitting in Arabia to referr to Arabia as land of East without being influenced by any external influence? Never! Because an Arab who hasn’t been influenced by external ideas will not referr to Arabia as East. It simply isn’t possible for a healthy mind. Only way this is possible is when a country found in West of Arabia referrs to Arabia as land of East. Point I am trying to make is use of East by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) as name of a region is simply not possible because he resided in Arabia and he was not saying East in relationship to Eithiopia, nor he employed East due to external influence. For brother Abdullah to even think that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) used East as a name of region is brainless of him. I cannot do, anything, but agree with brother Abdullah that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) did not mean Arabia by East because that would imply he used East as a name of region like we use the West for Europe and America. Instead Ahadith are evident that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) employed East as a directional indicator.

7.2 East As Direction And Not A Name Of Region:

According to Ahadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) indicated direction: “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 height of unbelief, viz. where appear the groups of Satan. [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6941] Note words this side are indictive of speaker pointing toward a direction. In following Hadith it is established he pointed toward his wives house from pulpit of Masjid Nabavi: “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] See following article on this Hadith, here. And in the following Hadith group of Satan is said to emrge from direction of sunrise: “Narrated Salim's father: The Prophet stood up beside the pulpit  and said, "Afflictions are there! Afflictions are there, from the side where group of Satan will come out," or said, "... the side of the sun(rise) ..." [Bukhari, B88, H212] And that is direction of East and see following article, here, for a comprehensive explanation with visual aid. A Hadith records Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said while facing East: “Narrated Ibn `Umar: I heard Allah's Messenger while he was facing the East, saying: "Verily! Afflictions are there, from where the side of the head of Satan comes out." [Ref: Bukhar, B88, H213] And in another Hadith following is stated: ”Narrated Abu Masud: The Prophet beckoned with his hand towards Yemen and said, "Belief is there." The harshness and mercilessness are the qualities of those farmers etc, who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to the religion (is towards the east) from where the side of the group of Satan will appear; those are the tribes of Rabi`a and Mudar.” [Ref: Bukhari, B59, H670] Note tribes of Rabia and Mudhar are situated in East of Madinah. And it was the direction which prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was facing. Tribes of Banu Mudhar and Rabia were residing in East of Madinah in region of Najd. Regarding which Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said: “Narrated Ibn `Umar: (The Prophet) said, "O Allah! Bless our Sham and our Yemen." People said, "Our Najd as well." The Prophet again said, "O Allah! Bless our Sham and Yemen." 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 side of the group of Satan." [Ref: Bukhari, B17, H147] Alhasil Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) pointed toward direction of East and he did so from city of Madinah and by East a region in East of Madinah was intended.

7.3 - Saudi Arabia Is Brother Abdullah’s Hijaz:

Earlier in the article while commenting on his Hadith-18 brother Abdullah wrote following: It is crystal clear from above Ahadith that ''East'' refers to ''IRAQ''. If still Barelwis disagree 'East as Iraq' then they must go to Saudi Arabia (Hijaz) to Give Bayat to Imam Mehdi in Saudi Arabia not in Khurasan.”
Please note the underlined indicates according to brother Abdullah Saudi Arabia is Hijaz.  If there was any doubt regarding what he meant by his bracketed insertion now it is removed in Hadith-41: “SubhanAllah! Even the above Hadith proves that Saudi Arabia is not referred as East but it's a blessed Land i.e Hijaz.”

7.4 - Hijaz A Region In Arabia and Hijaz Is Not Arabia:

Following map depicts al-Hijaz in two different eras, here, here, and here. Of course these maps of al-Hijaz should not be thought of to be accurate representation of historical Hijaz but should be used as a general guide for its location. Al-Hijaz linguistically means the barrier. According to some it is called so because on its Eastern side is Najd and on its Western side region of Tihamah. Tihamah is low-land, between one to hundered metres above sea level, and Red Sea coastal of Arabia, here, here, and finally a topographical map, here. Another opinion is that al-Hijaz is called so is because of its mountains. They are barrier between region of Najd in East and Hijaz in West. It is not important where the truth lies because general location of al-Hijaz was all that was required to, saying it generously, rectify mistake  of brother Abdullah.

7.5 – Prophet Of Allah Making Dua For Hijaz:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said:“The callousness of heart and sternness is in the East and faith is among the people of (West in) the Hijaz.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H95] We already established in section 7.2 that East is direction of sunrise, region of Najd is in East, tribes of Mudhar/Rabia are in East, and group of Satan is to emerge from these tribe. Hijaz in relationship to Najd is West. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said about people of al-Hijaz: The people of the West will continue to triumphantly follow the truth until the Hour is established.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4722] In another Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said about people of al-Hijaz to whom religion of Islam will cling to desperately. Another meaning is that Hijaz will be last refuge of Islam in the world: “That the Messenger of Allah said: "Indeed the religion with creep into the Hijaz just like a snake creeps into its hole, and the religion will cling to the Hijaz just like the female mountain goat cling to the peak of a mountain.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, B38, H2630] In another Hadith Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is reported to have said that residents of Hijaz will go and counquer Romans (i.e. Europe): “He said: ‘You will fight Banu Asfar (the Romans) and those who come after you will fight them, until the best of the Muslims go out to fight them, the people of Hijaz who do not fear the blame of anyone for the sake of Allah. They will conquer Constantinople with Tasbih and Takbir and will acquire such spoils of war as has never been seen before, which they will distribute by the shieldful.” [Ref: Ibn Majah, B36, H4094] Due to these virtues of al-Hijaz brother Abdullah wanted to claim Hijaz for all of Arabian Peninsula. Readers should note the Wahhabis then and now consider the majority of Hijaz as polytheists. Following establishes Wahhabis of then/now considered the Muslims of Hijaz living at the time of Shaykh of Najd as polytheists, here. Even when Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has said: :“The callousness of heart and sternness is in the East and faith is among the people of (West in) the Hijaz.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H95] The people of the West will continue to triumphantly follow the truth until the Hour is established.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4722]

7.6 – Responding To Comment Of Pledging Allegiance To Imam Mahdi:


For some unknown reason I did not actually comment on what brother Abdullah wrote while commenting on his Hadith-18 and therefore his following comment will be addressed here: It is crystal clear from above Ahadith that ''East'' refers to ''IRAQ''. If still Barelwis disagree 'East is Iraq' then they must go to Saudi Arabia (Hijaz) to give Bayat to Imam Mehdi in Saudi Arabia not in Khurasan.” In the previous article, here, it was explained East in relationship to Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah) referrs to land of Khurasan and identity of Khurasan was established in section 9.3 to 9.5. Coming to what brother Abdullah wrote. He wrote the above because Ahadith indicate an army of black flags will come from East. And we established that it referrs to land of Khurasan which is almost due East of Madinah. It is recorded in a Hadith that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said: “It was narrated from Thawban that the Messenger of Allah said: "Three will fight one another for your treasure, each one of them the son of a caliph, but none of them will gain it. Then the black banners will come from the east, and they will kill you in an unprecedented manner." Then he mentioned something that I do not remember, then he said: "When you see them, then pledge your allegiance to them even if you have to crawl over the snow, for that is the caliph of Allah, Mahdi." [Ref: Ibn Majah, B36, H4084] Note the army and Imam al-Mahdi will come from East and Arabs are being instructed to pledge your allegiance to him when they arrive. This establishes that some Muslims will have to pledge allegiance to Imam al-Mahdi in Arabia. The army will be from Khurasan but Imam al-Mahdi will be an Arab living in Madinah and the army of black banners will give him allegiance in Makkah: “Narrated from Umm Salamah (ra) from the Prophet (ra) that he said: “There will be conflict with the death of a khalifah. (this Hadith skips through events spanning years) Then a man (Imam Mahdi) from the people of al-Madinah will come out, fleeing to Makkah. A group of men from the people of Makkah will come to him and bring him out by force, and give the bay’ah to him between the Rukn and the Maqam. An army will be sent against him from Sham, but they will be swallowed up by the earth in al-Bayda’ between Makkah and al-Madinah (this is the third Great Earthquake at the end of time). So when the people see that, the Abdal of Sham and the best of the people of ‘Iraq will come to him, and give him the bay’ah between the Rukn and the Maqam. Then, a man from Quraysh and his maternal relatives from Kalb (one of the Sufyani’s) will come and send an army against them, and they (i.e. the Mahdi and his companions) will be victorious over them.” [Ref: Abu Dawud, B…, H…] Of course the Muslims will give Bayyah to Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah) in Hijaz and specificly in Masjid al-Haram, between Maqam of Ibrahim (alayhis salam) and Yamani Rukn (i.e. Yamani corner).

7.7 – Iraq, ISIS, Black Flags, And The Wahhabis:

Wahhabis distorted Ahadith of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) to make Iraq into East. Maybe it was ‘Iraq is East’ belief of Wahhabis that made them join the Wahhabi ISIS Khilafat aka concentration camp of mass murder and genocide. And maybe joined in the hope that they will be part o  black banners marching to Arabia under leadership of al-Baghdadi to establish the Khilafat of Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah). You can go to Iraq and give Bayyah to your al-Baghdadi’s and al-Zawahiri’s, and anyone else you want. The Imam al-Mahdi (rahimullah) of Muslims will be an Arab and resident of Madinah. The army from Khurasan will aid him and establish his Khilafat and that army will utterly anahilate Wahhabism in Arabian Peninsula and those who fight to protect this enemy within.

8.0 - Man From Najd Enquires About Fundamental Requirements Of Islam:

“Glad tiding of Jannah(paradise) for Najd Man: Hadith-42: Narrated Talha bin 'Ubaidullah: 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 Ramadan." 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)." (Bukhari,Volume 1, Book 2, Hadith 44) Hadith-43: "Yahya related to me from Malik from his paternal uncle Abu Suhayl ibn Malik that his father heard Talha ibn Ubaydullah say, "Once one of the people of Najd came to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. He had dishevelled hair and although his voice could be heard we could not make out what he was saying until he drew nearer and then we found he was asking about Islam. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said to him, 'There are five prayers during the day and the night.' He said, 'Do I have to do anything else besides that?' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, added, 'And fasting the month of Ramadan.' He said, 'Is there anything else I have to do?' He said, 'No, except what you do of your own accord.' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, mentioned zakat. The man said, 'Is there anything else that I have to do?' He said, 'No, except what you do of your own accord.' He continued, "The man went away saying, 'By Allah, I won't do any more than this, nor will I do any less.' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'That man will be successful, if he is telling the truth.'" (Muwatta Imam Malik, Book 009, Hadith 97) Comments: SubhanAllah Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wassalam) gave glad tiding to that Man.”

8.1 - Hadith Of Man From Najd And What Does It Establish:

These Ahadith establish that a man from Najd visited Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and enquired about obligations in Islam. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) told him that as a Muslim he is obligated to perform five prayers, fast in month of Ramadhan, and give compulsory charity. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was asked if there is anything else that he needs to do Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said there is no more oligatory practice but he can engage in Nawafil; prayer, fasting, and charity. The man left saying; he will do no more then compulsory requirement and no less. Upon that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said if this man adheres to this he will be successful in hereafter. Note Prophet said IF this man adheres to what he said he will adhere to. This exactly isn’t glad tiding of Jannah. Infact this glad tiding, if it is, is for all Muslims who do the bare minimum required from them. The glad tidings would be definiately established if brother Abdullah proves that Najdi man adhered to what he said he will practice. And I truly hope he did because his entry to paradise wouldn’t make my entry any harder or easier. The key point I am making is brother Abdullah is for no reason deriving a meaning from Hadith which doesn’t exist. It has been conditioned by, if he adheres to these, and Najdi’s saying I will do no more no less, isn’t proof that he acted on his utterance. If brother Abdullah proves the identity of man and proves he did then he would be justified in saying a Najdi man was given glad tidings of paradise. Otherwise its just over stretching a conditional statement to paint Najd in positive light to induce in idiots good feelings about Najd.

8.2 - Headless Chicken Game Over Najd And The End Result:

From the very beginning brother Abdullah has been attempting to prove Najd is/in Iraq but at the end he quotes this Hadith of Najdi man in order to elevate the status of Najd. If Najd is as he believes and if Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) gave glad tidings of Najdi man glad tidings of paradise then natural conclusion is a Iraqi man was given glad tidings of paradise. Of course I don’t believe this Hadith is about Iraq nor I believe man was given glad tidings of paradise but the distorter of Ahadith aka brother Abdullah does believe it. So after all the effort to demonize Iraqis technically he shot himself in the head. Hang on a second, ofcourse I, and brother Abdullah, and every sane person will understand; this alleged merit of Najdi earning glad tidings of paradise wasn’t intended for a Iraqi but it was intended for actual/real Najd from which his sweet-heart Shaykh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab and Wahhabism emerged. What this demonstrates is brother Abdullah is fully aware of where historical Najd was and is but in order to protect Wahhabism from damage he like most Wahhabis choose to distort the Ahadith of Najd which indicate a group (or an era) of Satan will start from Najd. There are many Ahadith which can be utalized to establish where Najd is. It  isdefinitely not Iraq and they will be brought into discussion in following article as a last article of three, here.

8.3 - A Fundamental Position About Najd, Banu Tamim, Iraq, And Iraqis:

Not every person of Iraq, Najd, and Banu Tamim is going to hell nor every person of them is going to paradise. Not everyone of them was Khariji and not everyone of them was free from Kharijism. Those who adhered/adhere to correct creed and practiced/practice their religion as instructed by Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), taught by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam), and within the frame work of Ijtihad they can hope to receive Allah’s (subhanahu wa ta’ala) mercy and surely will be successful in hereafter. And out of Iraqis, Tamimis, Najdis; the one’s who followed the teaching of Khawarij and demonstrated their belief via Mushrik’ing of Muslims, rebellion, murder of Muslims, or supporting such teachings they are people of hell. Such people are Khawarij where-ever they maybe and where-ever they are from. As par Ahadith such people are dogs of hellfire and disbelievers. Fundamentally the Khawarij emerged from Najd as well as Iraq and from there they propogated their teachings throughout the world. Every strain of Wahhabism and Kharijism, where ever in the world it maybe, via one or other route traces its origin back to Najd and Iraq.

8.4 - Wahhabism, Wahhabis, Past, And The Present:

Wahhabism was rebellion against; Jammah of Muslims and Uthmanic Khilafat. They declared Muslims are Mushrik (i.e. worst type of Kafir) for acts which were sins and and not even sins. The killing of Muslims was made Halal by them just like their theological ancestors killed and charged that companions of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) are Mushriks. This was very against what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said in following Hadith: Anas bin Malik narrates from the Prophet  who said: Three things are the roots of faith: (i) To refrain from (killing) a person who says “there is no Deity worthy of worship except Allah(ii) Not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits (iii) and also not to declare him out of Islam due to any of his action/deed.[Ref: Abu Dawud, B14, H2170] The actrocities Wahhabis committed in order to spread their Kharijism are in their own history books which can be researched. At present the dance of death, destruction by Wahhabi terror organisations namely al-Qaidah, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Shabab, TTP,  and myrids of other groups killing Muslims are all broadcasted by media and by themselves.

9.0 - Tribulations Emerged From Iraq Therefore Najd Is None Other Than Iraq:

“Every kind of fitnah took place in Iraq … 1) Fitnah of the battle of Jamal (which made the Sahaabah fight with each other). 2) Fitnah of the battle of Siffeen (in which more than 30,000 sahaabah were martyred). 3) Fitnah of the Khawaarij (they emerged from Kufa and other places in IRAQ). 4) Fitnah of the Shias (all of them emerged from IRAQ). 5) The Karbala tragedy where Imam Hussain was betrayed by his own Shias (it happened in IRAQ). 6) Several authentic Ahadeeth point to IRAQ as the horn of Devil (Qarn us shayateen). Therefore, The word Najd referred as a place of fitnah is none other than IRAQ … a) Fitna e Khawarij came from Iraq. B) Those who martyred Usman e Ghani (radiallahu anh) were from Iraq. c) Hazrat Ali (radiallahu anh) was martyred in Iraq. d) Hazrat Hussain (radiallahu anh) was martyred at Karbala i.e. in Iraq) Hazrat Umar Bin Khattab (radiallahu anh) was martyred by Piruzan also known as known as Abu Lulu, he was slave of Mughira Ibn Shu'ba the  governor of Busra.

9.1 - The Ground Reality And Things To Come:

It was previously mentioned after Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) departed from earthly life Najd in particularly and Arabian Peninsula in general rose upon in rebellion and arms. Note the events he mentions took place some twenty-five years after departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) but events to be mentioned by me were right after departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). You can soon as the news reached them that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has passed away they took up arms and rebellion against rule of first Khalifah for all sorts of reasons. Brother Abdullah mentioned figures of fatalities to portray Iraq as the mother of all evil that transpired in early Islamic history and I am compelled to respond in kind to put evil in coffers of Najdis as well. But before that some rectifications need to be made because brother Abdullah a prolific distorter of truth is at it again.

9.2 - Uncovering Some Lies And Telling Some Truth:

Brother Abdullah stated every tribulation transpired in Iraq. He mentions battle of Jamal took place in Basrah which is in Iraq. Battle of Siffin took place in Syria on banks of river Euphrates and today it is known as Raqqa. Note at present Raqqa was infamous capital of Wahhabi terrorist group ISIS. Sneakily brother Abdullah made it part of Iraq. Anything goes for defence of Salafi Minhaj of Kharijism including truth - right out the window. Next in line is the truth that Khawarij emerged from Iraq. Technically Khawarij emerged Syria because after battle of Siffin when Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) accepted arbitration than the Qurra (i.e. Quran reciters) broke away from his army and became known as Khawarij (i.e. disserters). Anyhow they did finally appear in Iraq in Harura (near Baghdad) so it would be correct to apply the Hadith on their Iraqi appearance but the founding fathers of Kharijism (see section 0.3) and the people who filled the ranks of Khariji army were Tamimis most and other inhabitants of Najd, here. It is correct that battle of Karbala in which Imam Hussain (radiallah ta’ala anhu) was slain took place in Iraq. Summing it up - so in his first point there was truth, second was a lie, third; Khawarij emerged from Syria but also in Iraq therefore partially correct, Najdis get blame for Khawarij because the leadership of Khawarij was from Najd; Dhil Khawaisirah at-Tamimi (actual name Abdullah, also known as Hurqus Ibn Zuhayr), Abdullah Ibn Wahb al-Rasibi al-Azdi. Dhil Khawaisirah at-Tamim was from Banu Mudhar and the Wahb al-Rasibi from Banu Rabia. Two groups of Satan coming togather for form a Fitna and the second time this happened was when the Saud family and Shaykh Ibnul Wahhab joined forces to create another major Fitna called Wahhabism. The rest I don’t need to respond because it has been repeated to many times.

9.3 - The Tribulations In Form Of Apostasy And Rebellion:

To begin with it is important that readers have good look on the following map to figure understand where actual Najd is, here. And also have good look at the following map, here. Battle of Buzakah between armies lead by Khalid Ibn Walid (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Tulayha Ibn Khuwaylid Ibn Nawfal al-Asadi. Tulayha Ibn Khuwaylid claimed Prophet-hood. Muslim army was six-thousand strong against fifteen-thousand of  Tulayha’s followers out of which thirty percent of apostates were killed. On Muslim side the causulties were low around a thousand. Fortunately Tulayha Ibn Khuwaylid accepted Islam and died a righteous Muslim as a Tabi. Battle of al-Yamamah; Musaylmah the liar of Najd also claimed Prophet-hood and as are result twenty-thousand Muslims died as apostates in battle which he himself was killed and some twelve hundred from Muslim side also died. This was second time Najd had claimed life of seventy Hufadh of Quran. The first time being when the tribes betrayed the Muslims killing them at well of Mau’na. Battle of Zafar again thousands of Muslims became apostates and rebelled against Khilafat resulting death at very least two-thousand apostates and around five-hundred Muslims died. I could not find anything regarding battle of Naqra and about battle of Ghamrah, battle of Hajr or battle of Butah. Note the casualties on Muslim side were not high in figures but when you contemplate the apostates were Muslim and abandoned Islam and died apostates then it was a great tragedy. Muslims can balance the two facts and judge for themselves that if apostasy and eventual death of around fifty thousand former Muslims in Najd is greater tribulation or death of sixty-five thousand Muslims. However you decide to look at it the fact is is Islam lost over a hundred thousand Muslims; some lost their lives only and other their Islam and lives. And if basis of harm to Islam and life of Muslims was criteria for determining where Najd is then would a sane person not agree that Islam lost more in Arabian Peninsula and in Najd then in Iraq. Surely tribulation of apostasy was greater then wars between Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and Muawiyah (radiallah ta’ala anhu). My personal view is thousand righteous Muslims being killed is lesser evil then fifty abandoning Islam but readers are free to choose their pick. The bottom line is there were tribulations in Najd also and severe enough that people lost their Islam and died apostates. Only tribulation and fighting and war basis brother Abdullah cannot fit the Ahadith of Najd on Iraq because the very same in fact worse tribulations emerged in actual historical Najd.

Tribulation Of Wahhabism In Najd:

One of the greatest tribulation which appeared in Najd is Wahhabism. Its founder Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab claimed, in his time, in all of Arabia, only he alone knows what Tawheed was and what Shirk was, and everyone else including his teachers were ignorant of it.[8] This was a massive Takfir of entire Muslims of Arabian Peninsula and in fact of entire Ummah because the orthodox Islam of world was unanimous in their understanding of Tawheed/Shirk. Nullifying the Tawheed/Shirk belief of Muslim of Arabia by default implied there was no Tawheed/Muwahid in entire world. This was the corner stone of belief on which Wahhabism came to existance and the very beliefe which resulted in death of hundreds of thousands of Muslims in and in surrounding regions of Najd. And even going far as attacking Iraq and TransJordan where they killed ten thousand people or so in surprise raids. They waged relentless war upon Muslims of Arabian Peninsula and showed no mercy to Muslim men, women, and even children. On account that these Muslims were actually polytheists (i.e. worst type of Kafirs) and therefore their killing/blood was permissible. They demolished the Masajid/Madaris and killed anyone they thought was against them much like their modern ISIS brothers. Entire Arabian Peninsula suffered at their hands and this suffering seemingly came to an end after they gained control of entire Arabian Peninsula after first world war.[9]

9.5 – Khariji Revolts And Some Facts About Them:

In Iraq there were many Khariji revolts such as Basrah but the instigators and planners and executers of all these revolts major share of forces were from Banu Tamim who had migrated to Iraq after its conquest during the Khilafat of Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu). Northern region of Iraq – al-Jazira – was also inhabited by members of tribes of Banu Rabia, Banu Mudhar, and Bakr Ibn Wail, here. These were people who migrated and settled in Iraq from central Saudi Arabia. Originally these tribes were settled around the modern Saudi capital Riyadh which is our Najd, here. There were two rebellions in al-Jazira; one in 794/795 AD lead by Al-Walid Ibn Tarif al-Shaybani and the other 866/896 AD whose leaders were Musawir ibn Abd al-Hamid al-Shari, Harun ibn Abdallah al-Bajali. Khawarij also revolted in Ahwaz -; now part of Iran, also known as Zanj rebellion. It was ocastrated by components Azraqiyyah Khariji sects followers from Banu Tamim, Rabia and Mudhar. The leaders of rebellion were; Abu Ahmad al-Muwaffaq, Abu al- Abbas Ibn al-Muwaffaq, Musa Ibn Bugha, Abu al-Saj, Masrur al-Balkhi, and Ahmad ibn Laythawayh. Nafi Ibn al-Azraq al-Hanafi al-Handhali after whom the Khariji sect Azraqiyya was named moved with his remaining followers to Ahwaz. So even though these tribulations did not take place in Arabian Najd the people involved were from Najd just like Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said they will appear from Najd. They appeared in Najd and showed their evil in Iraq. Similar to Qurra becoming abandoned Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) at Siffin in Syria but demonstrated their evil in Iraq. The fact of matter is in almost major Khariji rebellion tribes of Najd and those who migrated from Najd were heavily involved. Therefore the origin of tribulations in Iraq was from Najd of Arabian Peninsula even though the tribulations manifested in Iraq.

10.0 - Unlucky Thirteen Najds:

“Allamah Zubedi said and Allamah Hamumui he pointed out the list of Najds: 1) Najd Yamen. 2) Najd Iraq. 3) Najd Hijaaz. 4) Najd Khal. 5) Najd Al-Shari. 6) Najd Azaar. 7) Najd Al-Aqaab. 8) Najd Kabkab. 9) Najd Mari. 10) Najd Alwaz. 11) Najd-e-Aja. 12) Najd Barqq. F) Fitna of Inkaar e Hadeeh. So many Fitnas related to one place and that is IRAQ.. so Noble Prophet mentioning is IRAQ as a core place of Fitna has been proved at the later stages. Conclusion: It is crystal clear from above Ahadeeth that East refers to Iraq not Saudi Arabia.[Ref: Taj ul-Urus Min Jawahir ul-Qamus, Vol.2 pg.511. Mawjam Al-Bildaan Vol.19 Pg.265.]

Shameless Lieing And Attributing Lies Works Of Scholars:

Brother Abdullah claimed in Mujam al-Buldan and in Taj ul-Uroos Najd (of) Iraq is mentioned but brother Abdullah has lied. The display of confidence in lieing/deception is amazing. He is a very bad liar at that. A smart liar would actually be constructive in his art of lieing; invent authors, books, and even printers so his lie cannot or at the very least difficult to caught out. But brother Abdullah is enemy of himself in more then one way decided referrence his lie to scholars of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) has stated: “… the Messenger of Allah said: Were people to be given everything that they claimed, men would (unjustly) claim the wealth and lives of (other) people. But, the onus of proof is upon the claimant, and the taking of an oath is upon him who denies. [Ref: Forty Ahadith – Nawavi, Hadith 33] He published his article on; Friday, 9th December, 2011, and he allegedly quoted from these books. All he needs to do is to produce scanned image of front cover and of page where he got the information with clear name of publisher/printer for both books pre-dating his article. It can be said with complete confidence there is no such mention Najd (of) Iraq in Mujam al-Buldan of Shaykh Yaqut al-Hamawi (rahimullah) and not Taj ul-Uroos of Shaykh Muhammad Murtaza al-Hussaini al-Zubaidi (rahimullah). Following sections provide comprehensive exposition.

Mu’jam Buldan: UnMasking Lie And The Deception Of Iblees Of Najd:

On page 262 following five Najd are mentioned; i) Najd Barq (in al-Yamamah), ii) Najd Khal, iii) Najd Ufar, iv) Najd Kabkab, v) Najd Marb'a. On page 265 following Najd are mentioned; i) Najd al-Waza, ii) Najd A'ja, iii) Najd Barq, iv) Najd Khal, v) Najd al-Shar'ra, vi) Najd ul-Ufar, vii) Najd al-Aqab, viii) Najd KabKab, ix) Najd Marb'a, x) Najd Yaman (i.e. Yemen). One thing it will be obvious is that Najd Iraq from both lists is missing which brother Abdullah claimed was part of it. From these two lists of Najd we bring unique ones togather; i) Najd Barq, ii) Najd Khal, iii) Najd Ufar, iv) Najd Kabkab, v) Najd Marb’a, vi) Najd al-Waza, vii) Najd A’ja, viii) Najd Shar’ra, ix) Najd al-Aqab, x) Najd Yaman. This is what our cretin brother Abdullah quoted from Mu’jam al-Buldan: “1) Najd Yamen. 2) Najd Iraq. 3) Najd Hijaaz. 4) Najd Khal. 5) Najd Al-Shari. 6) Najd Azaar. 7) Najd Al-Aqaab. 8) Najd Kabkab. 9) Najd Mari. 10) Najd Alwaz. 11) Najd-e-Aja. 12) Najd Barqq.” Shaykh Yaqut al-Hamawi (rahimullah) mentioned ten Najds but cretin deceptively decided to add two more to the ten to make grand total of twelve. The two additions being Najd Iraq and Najd Hijaz. Not just that but Najd Azaar is not mentioned in Mu’jam al-Buldan. Please see following link it contains scanned copies of entire section on Najd and also provides link for online version of Mujal al-Buldan, here.

Taj Ul-Uroos: The Lies Of Liar Finally Will Catch Up To Him:

Coming to Taj ul-Uroos Min Jawahir ul-Qamoos of Allamah Zubaidi Naqshbandi (rahimullah). Shamela.ws has online version of Taj ul-Uroos. In part nine entry on Najd (نجد) can be seen. What it precisely states is matter of another article to come. Until then rest assured; brother Abdullah has lied even this time. There is no mention of Najd in Iraq, or Najd of Iraq. What Allamah Zubaidi (rahimullah) actually stated supports position of Muslims and refutes brother Abdullah but for now it would suffice to say there is no mention of Najd Iraq, or Najd of Iraq, here. He actually defined the boundary of Najd saying Najd is between Tihamah, Yemen, Levant (i.e. greater Syria) and low lands of Iraq. Also I managed to find printed version and following is link to everything related to Najd, here.

Many Najds Cannot Refute Islamic Argument:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) was seated on pulpit of Masjid Nabvi when he faced direction of East, pointed toward East, he pointed toward direction of sunrise, here, toward house of Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta’ala anha), here, toward region of Najd, Najd means elevated land (i.e. mountanous terrain), here. And then apply these findings upon the Najd and Iraq to see which of two is Najd. And which Najd it is out of ten mentioned by Allamah Yaqut al-Hamawi (rahimullah) in his Mu’jam al-Buldan. If we apply these facts then we will come to conclusion that Najd mentioned is Najd of central Arabian Peninsula surrounding Saudi capital city of Riyadh.

Applying Truths Upon Najds And The End Result:

Allamah Yaqut al-Hamawi (rahimullah) said stated Najd Barq is in al-Yamamah and in light of all the information derived from Ahadith it can be safely said that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) intended Najd Barq of al-Yamamah. And this happens to be the precise direction from which Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab appeared with his terrorist Khariji murdering bandits. And I am not the only one of this opinion a Wahhabi scholar of my home town Mirpur Azad Kashmir wrote the following:“The oppressed Imam (Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab) was from that Najd which has been mentioned as Najd Barq which is part of valley of Yamamah ... ”[10] [Ref: Uth’tay Hen Hijab Akhir, Page24, by Professor Mirza Zahid Hussain Sumnati, translted from Urdu.] Following maps depict the a place in al-Yamamah, here, here. Readers should note that al-Yamamah was a vast area these maps only point to where apostasy wars were fought. Al-Yamamah historically was composed of major part of central Arabia, here.

Conclusion:

Qurra (i.e. Quran reciters) left the party of Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) after he accepted arbitration at Siffin (i.e. modern Syrian city of Raqqa). And they were said to have left/deserted and thus Arabic word Khariji was employed for them. Due to their slogan Hukm (i.e. judgment) is for only Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) they were also called al-Muhakimmah. These Kharijis marched back to Iraq and camped at Harura and due to village they were called Haruriyyah. The man-power of Khawarij was from Najd. The argument of Wahhabiyyah that afflictions appeared in Iraq therefore Najd of the Ahadith of group of Satan is Iraq is also refuted with this over whelming evidence because according to Ahadith Najd is not just place of afflictions it is also place which gives rise to tribulations. This is evidenced by fact that Kharijis existed during the time of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). It is recorded in many Ahadith he said about Dhil Khuwaisirah, leader of Khawarij, that he has companions so pious my companions if you were to compare your Salah, fasting, Quran recitation to them you would be ashamed of yourself yet they have gone out of Islam like an arrow leaves the bow/target. This Dhil Khawaisirah was from Banu Tamim and Banu Tamim was tribe of central Arabia, here. Even though Khariji rebellion took place in Iraq the men who filled the ranks of Khariji army over-whelmingly were from Najd. After the departure of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) from earthly life Najd specificly and Arabian Peninsula in general was engulfed tribulation of apostasy. Following map depicts route taken by Khalid Ibn Walid (radiallah ta’ala anhu) to bring order in Khilafat, here. And some eleven hundred years later when the Wahhabism engulfed the Arabian Peninsula in death, destruction, and rape: Ibrahim Pasha (rahimullah) gave the Muslims of Arabian Peninsula respite from Khariji rebellion by defeating them in battles; following was the route taken by him, here. Route taken by Khalid Ibn Walid (radiallah ta’ala anhu), Ibrahim Pasha (rahimullah), and Khawarij being from region of Najd should score home the truth of Prophetic words; tribulations would emerge from East.[11] At the present Saudi Wahhabiyyah may not be millitarily involved in tribulation of East but everything has been sponsored by Wahhabi kingdom: From first Iraq war to Wahhabi ISIS concentration camp aka Khilafat in Syria/Iraq and to civil war in Libya and Yemen all has been ochestrated by Saudi Wahhabi kingdom. Thus is remains epict centre of tribulations in the Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). Contrary to claim that Iraqis were the group of Satan aka Khawarij Sahih Hadith establishes the Iraqis were not the Khawarij but they were the people who had stood by Ali (radiallah ta’ala anhu) and had put an end to Khawarij (Abu Sai'd then said: People of Iraq it is you who have killed them.)[12] and earned pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) by killing them (Wherever you meet them kill them, for their killing will bring a reward for him who kills them on the day of Resurrection).[13] When all facts are considered; name of Najd, linguistic meaning of Najd, topographical map of Najd/Iraq, Najd being in East, toward direction of sunrise and house of Aysha’s (radiallah ta’ala anha). And with the facts that Banu Tamim, Rabia, and Mudhar were situated in direction of East in region of Najd and Khawarij majority was composed of members of these three and other Najdi tribes. Then there can be no room left for a seeker to argue against truth of Islam and seeker would believe like Muslims believe.

FootNotes:

- [01] Readers should note upto Handhala is tribal names, then individual names. Shaykh Abdul Wahhab (rahimullah) was father of Shaykh Muhammad. And Shaykh Muhammad started the Wahhabi sect. And evidence for this is that Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab belongs to Hanzali tribe and he was native of Uyainah and later moved to Dirriyah and both these were located North West of Saudi capital Riyadh.

- [02] Banu Murrah is also spelt Murra. On the link given it is amongst the tribes listed in centre of Arabian map: Sa’d, Fazarah, Murrah and Ashja.

- [03] Employ following route to trace tribal lineage of Banu Fazarah: Adnan, Ma'ad, Nizar, Mudar [also spelt; Mudhar], Ailan, Qais, Sa'd, Ghatafan, Raith, Baghid, Dhabyan, Fazarah.

- [04] Please trace the tribal geneology from beginning; Adnan, Ma'ad, Nizar, Mudar [also spelt; Mudhar], Ilyas, Mudrikah, Khuzaimah, Kinananah, An-Nadr, Ma'lik, Fihr [aka Quraish], Ghalib, Lu'ayy, Ka'ab, Murrah, Mudlij.

- [05] Banu Ashja can be traced via: Adnan, Ma'ad, Nizar, Mudar [also spelt; Mudhar], Ailan, Qais, Sa'd, Ghatafan, Raith, Ashja.

- [06] A point might be made that Hadith says Banu Mudhar and not Banu Tamim so how and why are you applying it upon Banu Tamim? Firstly the Hadith states tribes of East … and Banu Tamim is in East of Madinah therefore they are included in prophetic words. Secondly there is wisdom employing Banu Mudhar and not Banu Tamim. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said I have been given short statements encampassing widest possible meanings (i.e. jawami al-kalim). If Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) only mentioned Banu Tamim then other off-shoots of Banu Mudhar would escape prophetic; harshness and mercilessness statement. Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) made statement about the Banu Mudhar so all those that branched from it are to be considered as ruthless, harsh and merciless. And fact is Banu Tamim and all branches of Banu Mudhar were embroiled in Khariji apostasy but Banu Tamim played prominent role in its formulation and Banu Tamim continues to play major role in modern Khariji movements.

- [07] “’And Allah will not mislead a people after He hath guided them, in order that He may make clear to them what to fear (and avoid)- for Allah hath knowledge of all things.’ (9:115) Bukhari relates from Abdullah ibn Umar (Allah be well pleased with him): ‘Ibn Umar considered the Khawarij and the heretics as the worst beings in creation, and he said: They went to verses which were revealed about the disbelievers and applied them to the Believers.’” [Ref: Fath ul Bari, Chapter of Killing the Khawarjites and Mulhideen, Volume 16, Page No. 164]  In Commentory of Chapter Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani (rahimuhullah) writes in Fath ul Bari under this Hadith: “‘Imam Tabri (rahimullah) has mentioned this Hadith in Musnad of Ali with the chain of Bakeer Bin Abdullah in Tahdhib al Athaar. He asked Nafi that what was the opinion of Abdullah Ibn Umar (radiallah ta’ala anhu) regarding Haruriya (Khawarij)? He replied that he (Ibn Umar) used to consider them worst creations of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) because they applied ayahs revealed for disbelievers on believers.  (Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani) said: This Hadith has “SAHIH” chain. It is also proven from the Sahih Marfu Hadith of Imam Muslim which he narrated from Abu Dhar (radiallah ta’ala anhu); regarding charectersitcis of Khawarij the Hadith states: ‘They are a creation of worst kind.’ And Imam Ahmad (rahimullah) has also narrated a similar Hadith from Anas Bin Malik (rahimullah) with a strong chain. Imam Bazzar (rahimullah) has narrated the Hadith from Aisha (radiallah ta’ala anha) who narrates from Prophet (sallallahua layhi wa aalihi was’sallam) that he said: ‘They will be the worst of my Ummah and they will be killed by the best of my ummah.’ The chain of this Hadith is Hassan.” [Ref: Fath ul Bari, Sharh Sahih ul-Bukhari, Volume No. 16, Page No. 168-9, Published by Dar Taybah, Beirut, Lebanon, here]

- [08] "And I inform you about myself - I swear by Allah whom there is none worthy to worship except Him - I have sought knowledge and those who knew me believed that I had knowledge while I did not know the meaning of La Ilaha illa Allah at that time and did not know the religion of Islam before this grace that Allah favored. As well as my teachers (Mashayikh) no one among them knew that. And if someone from the scholars of al-Aridh (the lands of Najd and surrounding areas) claims that he knew the meaning of La Ilaha illa Allah or knew the meaning of Islam before this time, or claims on behalf of his teachers that someone from them knew that, then he has lied and said falsehood and deceived the people and praised himself with something he does not possess." [Ref: al-Durar al-Saniyyah, 10/51, Translation by, Abu Sulayman.]

- [09] Readers are advised to read on early Wahhabi history. The best source for Wahhabi history is their own earliest sources their they gloatingly tell the gory truth. In modern books especially in English they have started to civilize their out-look and moderated the use of truth to portray a civil image of Wahhabism and its rise.

- [10] From other parts of his book it becomes evident; Professor Sumnati believes Shaykh of Najd was actually resident of Rabb ul-Khali (i.e. empty quarter). And his position isn’t due to evidence or due to claim of Shaykh Najdi’s family instead Professor has taken it upon himself to lie to protect Shaykh of Najd from criticism. This is the reason why Professor Zahid Hussain Sumnati is lieing flatly about direction of al-Yamamah: “The oppressed Imam (Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab) was from that Najd which has been mentioned as Najd Barq which is part of valley of Yamamah and is in South West (of Madinah). [Ref: Uth’tay Hen Hijab Aakhir, Page24, by Professor Mirza Zahid Hussain Sumnati, translted from Urdu.] Entirity of Rabb ul-Khali region is dessert with no grazing land, no water, nothing but sand and therefore its empty of human or animal habitation. Wahhabi biographers of Shaykh of Najd have stated his birth was Uyaynah and epic centre of his Khariji mission was Dirriyah, here. Both of which are stones throw away from Saudi capital Riyadh. This can be verified  independently via internet and their own biographical data published on life of Shaykh of Najd. Please referr to the maps in the following article which point Uyaynah and Dir’riyyah, here.

- [11] “Ibn Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah stood on the Minbar and said; The land of tribulation is there.’, and he pointed to the East: Meaning: ‘Where the sun rises from the group of Satan." Or he said: ‘The horn of the sun.’" [Ref: Tirmadhi, B7, H2268] “Narrated Ibn Umar: I heard the Prophet saying: ‘Afflictions will emerge from here.’, pointing towards the East.” [Ref: Bukhari, B63, H217]

- [12] “Abu Sa'id al-Khudri said that the Messenger of Allah made a mention of a sect that would be among his Ummah which would emerge out of the dissension of the people. Their distinctive mark would be shaven heads. They would be the worst creatures or the worst of the creatures. The group who would be nearer to the truth out of the two would kill them. The Apostle of Allah gave an example/description (of their Iman) . Or he said: ‘A man throws an arrow at the prey (or he said at the target), and sees at its iron head, but finds no sign (of blood there), or he sees at the lowest end, but would not see or find any sign (of blood there). He would then see into the grip but would not find (anything) sticking to it.’ Abu Sai'd then said: People of Iraq it is you who have killed them. [Ref: Muslim, B5, H2324]

- [13] “Ali said: When I mention a tradition to you from the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him), it is dearer to me that I fall from the heaven than I lie on him. But when I talk to you about matters between me and you, then war is a deception. I heard the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) say: Towards the end of the time there will be people who are young in age and from Islam as an arrow goes through the animal aimed at, and their faith will not pass their throats. Wherever you meet them kill them, for their killing will bring a reward for him who kills them on the day of Resurrection.” [Ref: Abi Dawud, B41, H4749]
