*GLAD TIDINGS AWAITING KASHMIR.* The birth of a child is a happy news. Although through pregnancy, lots of uncomfortable phases had befell the mother and the final birth painful labour that she had to endure is really traumatic. And yet after birth everyone rejoice. And after birth the issue of filling the belly of both of the mother and the child is another task to be fulfilled. The phase of teething is painful and uncomfortable for the child. Then after getting used to mother`s milk, he is forced to leave that nourishment at the end of 2 years. The Qur-aan describe these phases as ‘’the hard struggle’’: لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسانَ فِي كَبَدٍ
Indeed, We have created man through hard struggle phases.(90:4)
Hazrat Ibn Abaas r.a. and others described the ‘’hard struggle’’ mentioned in the ayah as the different phases before birth and after birth.
قال ابن عباس والحسن: فِي كَبَدٍ أي في شدة ونصب. وعن ابن عباس أيضا: في شدة من حمله وولادته ورضاعه ونبت أسنانه، وغير ذلك من أحوالهالقرطبيQurtubi
And yet the coming of a child is viewed as a happy event. Parents and family welcome the newborn with joy. In the same way, there is glad tidings awaiting Kashmir in first place and that glad tidings will stay until Dehli and then spread to whole of India. Then that wind of change will blow over the Arab world to pave the way for the khilafah of Muhammad Ibn Abdillah Al Mahdi.
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم
يقتتل عند كنزكم هذا ثلاثة كلهم ابن خليفة ثم لا يصير إلى واحد منهم ثم تطلع الرايات السود من قبل المشرق فيقتلونكم قتلا لم يقتله قوم فإذا رأيتموه فبايعوه ولو حبوا على الثلج فإنه خليفة الله المهدى (ابن ماجه ، والهيثم بن كليب ، والرويانى ، والحاكم ، والضياء عن ثوبان)أخرجه ابن ماجه (2/1367 ، رقم 4084) قال البوصيرى (4/204) : هذا إسناد صحيح رجاله ثقات . والرويانى(1/417 ، رقم 637) ، والحاكم (4/510 ، رقم 8432) وقال : صحيح على شرط الشيخين .
Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’Three sons of Khalifah will fight each other by this treasure of yours. There will be no victor. Then will rise the black flags from the east. They will fight you people such a war that no nation fought before. When you see them, then seek allegiance to them even if it would be to crawl on ice. Because he would be the Khalifah of Allah, The Mahdi.’’(Hakim)
My opinion:From the ahadiths we find that as if Imaam Mahdi will show himself clear in the hard winter of Afghanistan area. Or may be the climate change will bring snow to Makkah those days. Wallahu A`lam.
Another hadith indicate that the army that will pave way to Imaam Mahdi will be initiated from the area called Khurasan. It is the area of Afghanistan, part of Iran and Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
إذا رأيتم الراياتِ السودَ قد جاءتْ من قِبَلِ خُرَاسان فأتوها فإنَّ فيها خليفةَ اللهِ المهدىَّ (أحمد ، والحاكم عن ثوبان)أخرجه أحمد (5/277 ، رقم 22441) ، والحاكم (4/547 ، رقم 8531) وقال : صحيح على شرط الشيخين . وأخرجه أيضًا : نعيم بن حماد (1/311 ، رقم 896)
Rasouloullah Swallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’When you see black flags coming from the area of Khurasan, then come join them. Because in that army will be the khalifah of Allah, Al Mahdi.’’(Hakim)
Well the Basharat of Shah Ni`matullah Wali Bukhari r.a. of 8th century solar calendar talk same angle. After describing the Moghal empire in India and the advent of Englishmen, he described the 1st world war with precision. Then he described the 2nd world war with the split of India and Pakistan. He mentioned the degeneration of muslims and the consequent persecution of muslims. There will be open killing and raping of muslims in India-like Karbalaa. Then a Habibullah from Afghanistan will rise with an army. Later Pakistan and Iran will join force with the Afghans to fight the hindus and take them out from Kashmir, Jammu and Dehli. Then from there that Hinduism will be almost finished and then Islam will rule again in India. Then he mentioned that 3rd world war will drive Europe and America into dreadful war. Russia and Germany will be the victors. Then at the time of Hajj, Hazrat Mahdi will appear Insha Allah.
The present trend in India is to make persecution over muslims to drive them away from India and keep India for hindus. Well, this the labour pain for the birth of Islamic ruling in India. Sooner or later Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran will join force to pave the way of Islam in India. But when will that be, no one really knows. Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said that two armies that has had the guarantee of freedom from the hell fire are: the army conquering India and the army that will be with Isaa a.s., son of Mary.(Sahih Nassai)
حَدَّثَنَا أَسَدُ بْنُ مُوسَى قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا بَقِيَّةُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو بَكْرٍ الزُّبَيْدِيُّ عَنْ أَخِيهِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ عَنْ لُقْمَانَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى بْنِ عَدِيٍّ الْبَهْرَانِيِّ عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ مَوْلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عِصَابَتَانِ مِنْ أُمَّتِي أَحْرَزَهُمَا اللَّهُ مِنْ النَّارِ عِصَابَةٌ تَغْزُو الْهِنْدَ وَعِصَابَةٌ تَكُونُ مَعَ عِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلَامالنسائي
In fact, the army conquering India will be the one paving way for the Mahdi and then to Isaa a.s. Wallu A`lam.
But what we muslims should know at this point in time where we are worldly persecuted. Well our sins are exceeding our good actions. Salaah is neglected to more than 80%. There is no honesty in our dealings. Interest in loans and then no interest for deeni knowledge. Stealing haq of inheritance, taking bribe, etc are all in our daily lives. Hazrat Shah wali Bukhari mentioned of spoiled ulamas that bend and give preference to those who has power or money. All these are the cause of the worldwide pollution of Islamophobia.
The world is worried about its climate change, flood in some areas, drought in others, the havoc of jelly fish in the sea, storms and earth quakes. A disruption of peace in both land and sea. Well, the Qur-aan says all that is the consequence of sinful actions of man:
ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِي النَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُمْ بَعْضَ الَّذِي عَمِلُوا لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ
Calamities have spread across land and sea as a consequence of actions of humanity; so that He(Allah) makes them taste some (punishment) as consequence of their actions; so that they return(to the right way).
So be it Kashmir, Palestine, Yemen or Syria, the Ummah in whole should turn to Allah Ta`ala in repentance and let us choose those good actions that will bring well being. And leave those sinful actions that bring war, persecution and difficulties.
The same formula to swipe off all polluted land and sea, return to One Allah, He will rejuvenate the earth again pollution free.
