Well Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was so happy woman Ramadan. Today let's do something different inshallah to Allah. Let's do a little bit of history in sha Allah, this is from memory. So if I make some mistakes then names or dates in sha Allah then just corrected on the video I guess in sha Allah, I gave a hoot about Islam in India. It's useful for us to know the origins of Islam in that land. And when was the first time that Muslims came in? What was the story and what happened? It is mentioned in our books of history that even in the time of the qualifier, Raj, you don't, I'm gonna have a hot tub, an earth mundo de la one. There were

00:00:40 --> 00:01:21

skirmishes with Indian naval forces Earthman in particular, that Omar Abdullah Hassan did not want any Muslim naval force, but there was some ships going along and perhaps some minor battles took place, but there was no actual invasion in that timeframe. It is also mentioned that maybe in the reign of Huawei, because more out of the law one was the first one to have an actual naval force. It is mentioned in some books that while we know the Allah one might have had a small port in what is now the macaron province, a small port where you know, the ships would go and get their supplies, but not military conquest. He just had that port as a basis. The first invasion as all of us in

00:01:21 --> 00:02:05

influx and Israel were was by Mohammed bin Qasim, this was the first invasion. What was the story of this invasion. So in the time of the coda, and the early OMA years out, already begun to travel for the sake of T Java. And they already had communities in small islands across the Indian Ocean. And they had communities in what is now Sri Lanka. So our merchants were buying and selling trading. And so there was a small group of Muslims as expatriates as foreigners, not as locals or whatnot. And they had married intermarried. And they had children from these marriages. It's so happened that they didn't go back to Arabia for a long period of time, and they all died and their children

00:02:05 --> 00:02:56

remained Muslim. Their mothers were from locals and their parents, their fathers are from Arab lands. So the king of Sri Lanka decided as a gift as a gesture to the OMA yards to send these children these boys and girls back to the Muslim lands as a gift that you know, we respect we want to have good relations. So there see Rankin King did this he sent to ship and the ship had the young ladies and the boys of these Muslim merchants. Pirates from India, pirates, intercepted the ships and took these young ladies you understand why. news reached the OMA year to caliphate and the OMA yet caliphate sent a message to the local Raja, the local king, his name was da ha or die hear the

00:02:56 --> 00:03:40

news reached the OMA year Khalifa. And he sent a message to the closest king. You have to hand these young ladies back to us. They are our children. They are our you know, Uma, you're not allowed to do this. The Roger says I'm not doing it. This is the pirates. And I have these pirates are rebels. I have tried so many years to fight them. I can't fight them. Whether it was real, whether it was an excuse, we don't know, but he refused to get involved. And so Alhaji been use of the governor, he became so enraged, he sent his own nephew, Mohammed bin Qasim, our customers from the tribe of w 35. As well he sent his own nephew Mohammed bin Qasim, a 17 year old military general and he armed him

00:03:40 --> 00:04:22

with everything gave him everything that was needed. And he said destroy this Raja destroy he did not stand up when we needed to. So now you need to just get rid of this person. So Mohammed demon costume then landed at the table, and table is a drive away from Karachi. You still have the remnants of the table to this day. I'm not sure an hour north. Anybody has been there. They can tell me but I think it's an hour away from Karachi 45 minutes from Karachi. So he landed a table and this is when the expansion began. And Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed that generation it was, I have no doubt in my mind. It is miracle after miracle. If you read how the Muslims conquered that region and

00:04:22 --> 00:05:00

the Hora sun and marijuana and you know the the Sassanid Empire and the Roman Empire. There is no question that generation was blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala their eemaan their Taqwa the baraka of that generation. We have never seen it you know ever since then. So Mohammed bin Qasim begins conquering, conquering daybill Sorry, Raja daha attacks it is famous battle took place in a city bruh mana bad Bahama Nevada City back then. So in that city, the river Indus was was flowing in next to it, and one of the Muslim archers threw an arrow with the fire at the end.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:17

of the hour, you know that that fire that comes and it hit the elephant of Raja daha. So the elephant fell into the river Indus with Raja on it. So Raja fell into the river and then the Muslim began attacking until the raja was killed with the death of the raja obviously, monsoon

00:05:18 --> 00:06:04

Brahmanda bad was conquered. It was then called Mon surah. Okay, mon surah. So the city of mon Surah became the original capital of the Muslims of the Sindh province, Karachi, the Sindh province. So the city of mon Surah became that capital and a number of other cities were also created or renamed my food that was one of them will turn as well came under Muslim control. So four or five cities were then created in this region of what is now the province of sin. Now, one of our problems as historians and as people who are researching this era is that we don't have original documents of that timeframe. We do not have the details of what happened. And the next 300 years are very, very

00:06:04 --> 00:06:52

murky. There are no large volumes written about the Muslims of India of that timeframe. We literally have pages that is it. Why? Because the action for most of the historians is in Baghdad, it is in Kufa, it is in Damascus it is in Makkah and Medina, this small province of Matsuura and my father and Macron and Milton, who's writing about that, we have little references in the big Arab history, historians Albula God authority, we have a paragraph of small sentence and that's it locally over there. We do not have any preserved histories from eyewitnesses. The earliest history that we have, it is called the church nama. This is the earliest history that is written of that timeframe. The

00:06:52 --> 00:07:44

charge nama was written in ancient Farsi or medieval Farsi. And it was written around 405. No, sorry, it was written 1300 CE. So that's 700 1300 C 1300. C. So what Hijra is that 700? Hijiri 703. Right. So 1300 C 700. G, we have the judge nama being written that starts Namo was written in Persian. And the author alleges that he discovered a manuscript in Arabic that was written by an eyewitness under Mohammed bin Qasim. But this is a legend. And the stories are so romanticized and put into flowery language that we don't know what to believe what not to believe. So the church Nama is something that is used, but at the same time, there's an element because it was written for a

00:07:44 --> 00:08:24

king and any time you write something for a king, anytime you write something further, what's going to happen, you know, you give it some leeway, some extra whatnot. So this is our main problem here. Now we know that the OMA yields continue to send governors to these provinces, but the OMA yards lost the war to the buses. The buses lost interest in that region. It was too far for the buses. They sent a governor or two they sent to a particular governor, that Governor died. And so an insurrection took place. And one of the locals basically declared himself to be the soul fawn declared himself to be the governor, not the Solon. And he said, I am now going to rule on behalf of

00:08:24 --> 00:09:10

the Abbasids. And his dynasty became the longest dynasty of this timeframe. It is called the habited dynasty, the Habad dynasty it rule for 170 years, the Habad dynasty its its base was Matsuura and it was called the habited dynasty, a very interesting story, the fifth generation ancestor of the founder of the dynasty, he was by the Habad Ibn a SWAT they've been at the Hubbard had been more positive Ibn. I don't remember his full name, how about Ibn Multilib something he was a second cousin of Khadija. He was a second cousin of Khadija bar. And he was in the time of the Prophet system, and he was an enemy of Islam. Once in a while the Allahu anha wanted to migrate to Medina.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:54

He was the one who stood in the way and took his arrow out and wanted to shoot at the camel, the camel reared back, and it is said that Xena but the Alana was pregnant, and so she fell and she miscarried because of a bar. And that is why, when the conquest of Makkah happened, there was a list of people the process was at these people shall not be forgiven, Hubbard's name was on there. But Allah had willed that his descendants would be the first dynasty of what is now Pakistan. So how Barr accepted Islam, hid himself came to the process of him and beg for forgiveness. And the Prophet system would forgive anybody who asked for forgiveness. Anybody went have bought us for forgiveness,

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

the process of forgave him five generations later because Allah's plan has to take place his

00:10:00 --> 00:10:50

fifth generation descendant was in the city of mon surah. And he founded the Habana dynasty for from 150 Hegira to around 300 Hijra that was the habited dynasty until more than Husna became more than 100 became and then took over from the Habad dynasty. Now what we do know is that from 150 to 300 hijra, that region of Pakistan will call the Pakistan hours obviously called sin back then, that region of sin it as is always the case in Muslim history, one of the tragedies of Muslim history, it became divided amongst itself. And rather than being united under one governorship, at least five governorships were created. Every city became independent from the other, every city is boycotting

00:10:50 --> 00:11:29

the other fighting the other. The same thing happened in undos, exact same thing. You had 27 Mini dynasties and underdose at one given time, can you imagine? What do you think's going to happen when you have 27 dynasties? Of course, you know, Ferdinand Isabella are going to come and re conquer the entire land. Of course, that's going to happen. The Muslim disunity is our problem from day one, instead of uniting against others, they began fighting amongst themselves could lose his mind, be mad at him for your own. And so between these cities now, we do have one other source of information. And that is just a few paragraphs of travelers that went through these regions and

00:11:29 --> 00:12:11

recorded what they saw not even voted urban voters much later on. We have travelers that came before Ibn Battuta we have people like Ben Houchen. We have people like Alice Dockery, we have a number of people who traveled through the lands and they visited Matsuura. They visited Moulton, and they described beautiful gardens. Some of them one of them says that the people of Matsuura they dress and talk like the people of Iraq, because the conquerors were Iraqi. So 300 years later, and you have a mini Iraq, in Pakistan, mini Iraq, that the language is Iraqi, the dialect is Iraqi, the dresses are all in that region. So the traveler describes this. Also, interestingly enough for those

00:12:11 --> 00:12:52

that are students of Fifth, we know that the vahidi Madhab was predominant over there, right? And he actually writes that the there's a small group of Hanafis, but the predominant method is the vahidi method, the vahidi madhhab, there were five madhhab once upon a time, this is the 50 madhhab. It disappeared over time, but it was common in that region until until what happened happened. Another interesting point all of this is random facts. Another interesting point. So we talked about Matsuura. As for Moulton, as for Malta, and at some point in time, we do not know when the governor of Milton for strategic purposes broke away from the Abbas at Empire. And he declared his allegiance

00:12:52 --> 00:13:41

to the fall ultimate empire. And he became a smiley. So that city followed the thought of a strand of suit of shear ism that is called is made ism. Right. And this is the origin of that felucca in that land. Every Indian Pakistani knows what I'm talking about, right? The origin of that physical where did it come from? In this timeframe around 200 to 50 Hijra Moulton stopped being Sunni and converted. We do not know why. As far as we know, it could be strategic purposes that instead of speak because Matsuura always remained technically under the Abbasids Sunni mon Surah gave its little bit of money, and the hutzpah was read in the name of the Ibis it caliphate. As for Moulton,

00:13:41 --> 00:14:20

the travelers that go through describe that Moulton reads in the name of the Khalifa of the 40 minutes, right. And this is where a group of people converted, they call themselves Hoja. At the time, it's a physical, it's a group that is going to fill it was an ethnicity of traders at that time, and they converted to that group. And as we know, people of that region are their descendants still, they had to adopt because it's my it is and went to different trends. You had the Boko Haram, you had the Nizar Yaga honey, you had the Druze and you had all three of these in that region at that timeframe. So they're they're antagonism increases, and it was at this point in time when

00:14:20 --> 00:15:00

Moodle has nervy for reasons beyond the scope of of these regions. Moodle has never decides to attack and he was the one who then destroyed Moulton as a Fatimid province. And he recaptured Matsuura and he then United that region under his famous you know, has never been empire and then history is recorded. We do have history recorded from my mother was never one of his secretaries, by name of it to be he was a historian. So we have the history of Ultrabeat as an eyewitness of the reconquest of memorial of US Navy pre memorial of US Navy, which is from around so. Mohammed the new costume was 91 Hijra more than it was

00:15:00 --> 00:15:34

nobody is around. What? 400 hitter right? So from 91 to 400 This is our dark area. We don't know much because as I said, we don't have I witnessed historians and we don't have somebody from outside writing in, we just have a little bit of paragraphs, what I have reconstructed, maybe you can add maybe 510 times this amount, and that's all that we know from this timeframe. Inshallah, maybe another lecture, I'll talk about whom I'm with US Navy. And then of course, you have other you know, dynasties maybe another time we'll talk about them as Kamala Harris and I'm wondering when I was able to catch up

00:15:35 --> 00:15:53

in Mussolini now almost Lima D one meaning I will not mean it will quantity now look on it the more slowly been I was born in Poland the one saw the Rena was Slavia right the one before she you know she

00:15:55 --> 00:16:10

won what unfortunately no one was watching The one downside btw now one downside the party was on me now was all in

00:16:12 --> 00:16:19

one half enough photo gentlemen wouldn't have failed what it was good enough. Guess

00:16:20 --> 00:16:24

what the guilt or? I don't know hula

00:16:29 --> 00:16:30
