Ghazwa-e-Hind (Islamic Conquest of India/Hindus) is the most famous, thousands of years old prophecy in Islam. “Ghazwa-e-Hind” term has its origin from Prophet Muhammed era old Hadiths and some versions of Qurans. It is believed to be 1400 years old. Some people believe Ghazwa-e-Hind term was given by Prophet Muhammed himself to conquer South Asian subcontinent. It is still one of the most famous Prophecies in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and India and believed by more than 500 million Muslims.
It is mentioned in some good and peaceful Hadiths predicting a great battle of Islam fought by Peaceful Muslim warriors in India, resulting into complete rule of Islam and Sharia on Hindus in whole Indian Subcontinents. This Islamic conquest of India is supposed to occur before the dooms day (End times or Day of Apocalypse) and establish an Islamic Caliphate ruled by Sharia to bring the Islamic religious order that existed in the era of Prophet Muhammed in Saudi Arabia.
According to the Ghazwa e Hind Prophecy
Many Hadiths and Holy Qurans have detailed description of Ghazwa-e-Hind prophecy. According to the predictions, First battle of Islam starts in Syria and Saudi Arabian region and the Islamic forces march towards Jerusalem. After conquering Jerusalem, Peaceful Islamic warriors head to Hindustan India (the Land of Kafir/Hindus or one of the most prosperous region in the world in those times entirely populated by Hindus, Known as Bharat or Hindustan). Islamic warriors attack the Land of Hind (this term is believed to be given by prophet Muhammed himself for the Land of Hindus). Islamic warriors destroy the Hind/India/Bharat and loot it’s all riches, treasures and women. Thus Ghazwa-e-Hind will be established. Then, the Islamic Caliphate uses these precious treasures to decorate Jerusalem. The Military troops drag the Indian Hindu Kings to king of Jerusalem. By the order of Islamic caliphate, his warriors would conquer entire land from east to west.
“Islamic armies with black flags come from the land ‘Khurasan’, Land of Hindus, India will become part of Khurasan. There will be no power to stop them. India will become a fully Islamic Nation later the great Allah will bless the Islamic warriors if they bring the Indian Hindus kings to Caliphate, dragging them in chains. Those Muslim warriors will find a place in Jannat (Heaven) by the grace of Allah.
Various Islamic Scholars on Ghazwa-e-Hind
Many well-known Muslim scholars believe in Prophecy of Ghazwa-e-Hind. Some believe that Ghazwa-e-hind will be fulfilled by Pakistani forces after defeating India. Some believe that Indian Muslims will themselves rise in high number of population and fulfill Ghazwa-e-Hind. There are diverse opinions of scholars on this prophecy.
Some Indian and Pakistani Muslim scholars believe that “Ghazwa-e-Hind hadith” prophecy is true because it is mentioned in Hadith and has taken place long time ago 600-750CE when Islamic warrior Muhammed bin Qasim invaded India, destroyed all Hindu temples and possessed all treasures and women of India. After that there have been a number of invasions in Indian land from Central Asia and Saudi Arabia by Islamic warriors, and India was under Islamic Sharia rule for 800 years. Khurasan Hadith was used to mobilize Muslim soldiers to invade India and establish Sharia. It has been credited to Prophet Muhammed. More than 150 years after his death, Muslim scholars formally wrote and translated the Hadith in several languages.
Some Indian Muslim scholars have also given their views on Ghazwa-e-Hind prophecy. Well known Maulana Abdul Hamid Numani of the Jamiat ul-Ulema-i Hind (Indian Muslim scholar Society) explained that Prophecy of Ghazwa-e-Hind was fulfilled in the time of Four peaceful righteous Caliphs when several Muslim warriors of Prophet Muhammed invaded India to spread Islam and establish Sharia. Darul-Uloom Deoband scholars like Mufti Sajid Qasim believes that prophecy of Ghazwa-e-Hind was fulfilled when Arabian Muslims invaded Sindh under Muhammad bin Qasim.
Some Indian Muslim scholars believe that Ghazwa-e-Hind will be fulfilled in future by Indian Muslims themselves when Sharia rule will be established in India.
Other Predictions of Ghazwa-e-Hind
Some Muslim scholars of Pakistan believe that Ghazwa-e-Hind has not been fulfilled yet. One prediction says that Pakistan will defeat Indian in open war and establish Islamic social order India.
Hindu view on Ghazwa-e-hind
Some Hindu nationalist politicians of BJP and RSS has raised the issue of Ghazwa-e-Hind to mobilize Hindus in Indian Democracy. With rising Muslim populations in India, it is also believed that Muslim will outnumber Hindu population India and establish sharia Law. Recently Muslim organizations have demanded separate Sharia courts for Muslims. There is also Muslim personal Board in India. Hindu nationalists have also raised concern over these issues.
