Hadith of Najd and the Maps: The Place of Fitna

Najd

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: (The Prophet) said, “O Allah! Bless our Sham and our yemen.” People said, “Our Najd as well.” The Prophet again said, “O Allah! Bless our Sham and yemen.” They said again, “Our Najd as well.” On that the Prophet said, “There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the horn of Satan.” (Book #17, Hadith #147, Bukhari)

That is the place of Khawarij:

the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, said regarding a man who once accused him of injustice, “From among the offspring of this man there will rise a people who will read the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats (meaning it will not enter their hearts). They will kill Muslims and spare Idol-worshippers. They will deviate from Islam (as fast and clean) as an arrow pierces the game. If I live to witness their appearance, I will kill them as the people of ‘Aad (whom Allah utterly destroyed and annihilated because of their disbelief) were killed.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].

Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab, founder of Muwahhidun / Salafi / Ahlus Sunnah (Without Jama’ah) causing a lot of Fitnah. Murders. With Ibnu Saud and the help of English arms he fought Muslims in Iraq, Thaif, Mecca, and Madinah and killed many Muslims. He also fight Turkey and Egypt which he call the enemy of Islam. By his enemy, Muslims that he think as infidel, Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab called the Wahhabists.

From the Hadith above mentioned the people of NAJD. Not the people of IRAQ! Because at that time Islam propagation didn’t reach Iraq yet. Beside our prophet mention sever times about the HORN OF SATAN (قرن / qorn) that suits with the Hajj Miqat of the Najd people.

It is reported in SAHIH BUKHARI from Hazrat Abu Said Khudri (Radiallhu Anhu) who narrates that: Once we were in the presence and company of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam). He was distributing booties (Spoils of War) when a person named Zul-Khawaisara, who was from thetribe of Bani Tamim addressed the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) “Oh Muhammad Be Just!” “. The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “A Great pity that you have doubts, if I am unjust then who will be just, you are a loser and a failure.” Zul-Khawaisara’s attitude infuriated Hazrat Umar (Radiallhu Anhu) and he pleaded with the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) to permit him to slay Zul-Khawaisara. The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) remarked: “Leave him, as his slaying will serve no good purpose, as he is not the only individual but there are a host of others like him and if you compare their prayers and fasting to that of yours, you yourself will feel ashamed. These are the people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats, with all these apparent virtues they will leave the fold of Deen just like the arrow leaves the bow.

Al-Bukhaaree includes this hadeeth in the chapter: “The affliction will appear from the East”

212) From the father of Saalim: The Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, stood up besides the pulpit (and pointed towards the east) and said: “Afflictions are there! Afflictions are there! From where appears the horn of Satan” or he said, “the horn of the Sun”

213) From ibn Umar that he said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu alyahi wa sallam, saying while facing the east: “Indeed Afflictions are there, from where appears the Horn of Satan.”

From ibn Umar that he said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu alyahi wa sallam, saying while facing the east: “Indeed Afflictions are there, from where appears the Horn of Satan.” (Shahih Muslim No.5167)

حدثنا عبد الله ثنا أبي ثنا أبو سعيد مولى بنى هاشم ثنا عقبة بن أبي الصهباء ثنا سالم عن عبد الله بن عمر قال صلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم الفجر ثم سلم فاستقبل مطلع الشمس فقال ألا ان الفتنة ههنا ألا ان الفتنة ههنا حيث يطلع قرن الشيطان

Muhammad PBUH did the Dawn Prayer and gave salute and facing toward the SUN RISE and said: “Fitnah will come from here. Fitnah will come from here from the horn of Satan” [Musnad Ahmad 2/72 no 5410 shahih]

Muhammad PBUH said that in Madinah. Najd which have the same latitue of Madinah (24° North). While Iraq’s latitude is 32° North. 8° North of Madinah. The Sun’s maximum latitude is 23.5° North. After that, going to south again. The Sun will never go to 32° North as in Iraq.

From Madinah, the Sun Rise from Najd direction. Not from Iraq!

Najd also means the HIGH Place. Najd now such as Riyadh is 1,200 meter beyond the Sea Level. While Iraq is in low place. Only 50 meter above the sea level. In Topographic Map, Najd’s color is yellow (high) while Iraq, especially Kuffah is dark green (low).

Just look at the map:

حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله بن عمار الموصلي قال حدثنا أبو هاشم محمد بن علي عن المعافى عن أفلح بن حميد عن القاسم عن عائشة قالت وقَّت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لأهل المدينة ذا الحُليفة ولأهل الشام ومصر الجحفة ولأهل العراق ذات عرق ولأهل نجد قرناً ولأهل اليمن يلملم

From Aishah, Prophet PBUH said: The Hajj Miqat (the place) for Madinah is in Dzul Hulaifah, Sham and Egypt in Juhfah, Iraq in Zati Irq, and Najd in Qorn, and Yaman in Yalamlam.” (Shahih Sunan Nasa’i no 2656)

Muhammad mentioned about the HORN of Satan sever times in Hadeeth about Najd. And the Hajj Miqat (place) for the people of Najd is in Qorn. That means HORN in Arabic. In the Hadith above, Najd and Iraq are 2 different place with 2 different Miqat. So interpreting Najd is Iraq is not true at all.

The Ahli Fitna from Najd, Shaikh Muhammad Al Arifi, in Riyadh (Najd), provoking its followers to kill Muslims in Sham, Yemen, and others:

Not also Shia such as Assad that he killed. But also Sunni Scholar such as Shaikh Al Buthi, the son of Shaikh Ahmad Hassoun (Grand Mufti of Syria), Imam Masjid of Aleppo, etc. His followers think they are doing Jihad. While in fact killing Muslims, even an 84 year old Ulama such as Al Buthi and his grandson along with 52 Muslims in a masjid with bombs.

I Hope all Muslim knows that killing Muslims is not the way of Islam.

“O ye who believe! When ye go forth (to fight) in the way of Allah, be careful to discriminate, and say not unto one who offereth you peace: “Thou art not a believer,” seeking the chance profits of this life (so that ye may despoil him). With Allah are plenteous spoils. Even thus (as he now is) were ye before; but Allah hath since then been sgracious unto you. Therefore take care to discriminate. Allah is ever Informed of what ye do.” [An Nisaa ' 94]

Jika terjadi saling membunuh antara dua orang muslim maka yang membunuh dan yang terbunuh keduanya masuk neraka. Para sahabat bertanya, “Itu untuk si pembunuh, lalu bagaimana tentang yang terbunuh?” Nabi Saw menjawab, “Yang terbunuh juga berusaha membunuh kawannya.” (HR. Bukhari) Muhammad PBUH: If 2 Muslims fight each other, the killer and the killed will enter to hell. The Sahabat asked: “The killer is OK go to hell. But what about the victim?” Prophet said: “The victim also try to kill his opponent!” [Bukhari]

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. Thou (O Muhammad) seest them bowing and falling prostrate (in worship), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) acceptance. The mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of prostration. Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel – like as sown corn that sendeth forth its shoot and strengtheneth it and riseth firm upon its stalk, delighting the sowers – that He may enrage the disbelievers with (the sight of) them. Allah hath promised, unto such of them as believe and do good works, forgiveness and immense reward.” [Al Fath 29]

The article in Wiki is dominated by the Wahhabists. So the conclusion there is Najd is Iraq… :)
