Prophet Muhammad on Holy War Against Al-Hind (India)
Posted by jagoindia on April 18, 2008
Andre Wink describes that this aspiration to conquer India had existed since the time of the Prophet, as is evidenced by the sacred texts:
“… in the hadith collections the prophet Muhammad himself is credited with the aspiration of conquering India. Participants in the holy war against al-Hind [the Hindus] are promised to be saved from hell-fire… Thus also an eschatological work which is called the Kitab al-Fitan (’Book of Trials’) credits Muhammad with saying that God will forgive the sins of the members of the Muslim army which will attack al-Hind, and give them victory.”11 source
In one of the Hadiths (Muslim scripture) the Prophet Muhammad isquoted as saying “Two groups of my Ummah Allah has protected from the hellfire: a group that will conquer India and a group thatwill be with Isa ibnu Maryam (Jesus, son of Mary).” The firstattempted invasion of India by Muslims occurred in 636 CE — underCaliph Umar, within four years of Muhammad’s death. The first 16 invasion attempts utterly failed.
