Future of Pakistan in the Light of a Hadith-e-Mubarika

A famous couplet/shair by Allama Iqbal is:

“Meer-e-Arab (S.A.W.) Ko Aayi Thandi Hawa Jahan Se
Mera Watan Wohi Hai, Mera Watan Wohi Hai”

This couplet is based on a Hadees Mubarika. Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “I feel cool breeze coming from Hind”.

Lets read some references by Oriya Maqbool Jaan and Prof. Ahmad Rafique Akhtar about this Hadees and Future of Pakistan, the couplet from Bang-e-Dra and then details of this Hadees-e-Mubarika.

Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlavi (RA) mentioned a Hadith, referenced by Al-Tibrani-Al-Aust (الطبراني الأوسط), Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, 

“I am Arab, but Arab is not in me and I am not in Hind but Hind is in me”

میں عرب ہوں, لیکن عرب مجھ میں نہیں اور میں ہند میں نہیں لیکن ہند مجھ میں ہے

Main Arab Hun, lekin Arab Mujh mein nahin aur Main Hind mein nahin lekin Hind Mujh mein hai

Allama Iqbal used a part of this Hadith in his couplet of Bang-e-Dra.

  1. Q) Assalamo Alikum mufti sahib ! My question is whether there is any tradition that Holy Prophet (PBUH) felt breeze from India. Allama Iqbal has said something like that in his poetry; "MEERE ARAB TO AYE THANDI HAWA JAHAN SE MERE WATAN WOHI HAI." Any tradition saying this. Sorry for too many questions in last two days. Waiting for the answer.(Fatwa: 1257/1176=D/1429)A) We could not find this Hadith, may be it is somewhere. But, it is surely known that the virtue of India has been mentioned in the traditions of the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم). There is one Hadith saying that Hazrat Adam (علیہ السلام) was sent down to India, he was accompanied with the breeze of paradise, it is the same breeze which blows in the valleys and trees. The referred words are in poetic form which contains indications and figuration. In order to understand it you must refer to the poetry of Allama Iqbal with its commentary.and Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) Knows BestDarul Ifta, Darul Uloom Deoband====Many Hadiths say Only Imam Mahdi will establish Khilafat in middle east and include Hind part of Khilafat using Ghazwa-e-Hind. Shuyeb bin Salah from Khurasan (not Hind) will help him in establishing Khilafat in middle east. (Allah Knows Best)

  2. Greater Khorasan, a historic region that covered parts of modern day Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, eastern Iran, northwestern Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.At time of prophet (saw) there were three separate areas Khurasaan, Sindh and Hind. These names are mentioned in different Hadiths like Shuyeb bin Salah will come from Khurassan and Mahdi will conquer Hind and Sindh. So they are different areas. Today only some part of Pakistan belong to Khurassan. River Sindh and India were not be part of Khurasaan in any age. See yellow part in map… Iran will help Imam Mahdi in establishing Khilafat and after Ghawa-e-Hind India will become part of khilafat. Insha'Allah people of Iran and Pakistan will help Imam Mahdi.
