Tʜᴇ Vɪʀᴛᴜᴇs ᴀɴᴅ Sɪɢɴɪғɪᴄᴀɴᴄᴇ ᴏғ Iɴᴅɪᴀ{Hɪɴᴅ} 🇮🇳

The Islamic traditions tell us that our country, India[Al-Hind] is also a fountainhead of many great virtues.

According to the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him)’s companion, Hadrat Abu Hurayra(RA),”Hadrat Adam(AS) – the first human being sent on earth, descended in Hind{India}.” ►{Abu Nuaym Hilyatul Awliya , Vol 5 , Page 107 ; Imam Daylami Musnad Al-Firdous , Vol 4 , Page 271 Hadith #6798; Ibn-e-Asakir in At-Tarikh Vol 7 ,Page 437}

Hadrat Hawwa (Eve) [AS] descended somewhere in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia[Jiddah means “grandmother” in Arabic]. Both, first ever inhabitants of earth, remained separated for quite some time. Wandering through the island and crossing through India, Hadrat Adam[AS] reached Jeddah. Eventually, their long drawn separation came to an end.Hadrat Adam and Hawwa (Eve) [AS] met each other at a place called Muzdalifa (meaning “meeting point” in Arabic). At this place, it is obligatory on Hajj pilgrims to stay put and spend one night to revive the memory.

India’s prominence can be summarised as under in the light of reported traditions:

1> India is the place where Allah’s first Caliph (Vicegerent of Allah) descended.

2> The choice of India among all other countries for sending the first Caliph on earth i.e. Hadrat Adam(AS) points to the special status of this land.

3> It is India , where the Angel Gabriel (AS) descended for the first time and thus it is this land that has the honour of receiving the first revelation of Almighty Allah on earth.

4> Hazrat Abu Hurayra[Radiyallahu Anhu] narrated this Hadith from Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) that to console Hadrat Adam(AS), Almighty Allah had sent Angel Gabriel(AS) to Hadrat Adam(AS). When he met Prophet Adam[AS], he recited: Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Ashahadu An la Ilaha Illallah, Wa Ashhadu Anna Mohammadur Rasoolullah.

The recitation was the same as in Adhan (call for prayer) today. When Hadrat Adam (AS) heard the name ‘Muhammad’, he inquired: O’ Allah! Whose name is this?
Promptly came the reply: ‘He is the one from among your progeny, who would be the last Prophet of humanity.’ ►(Tabrani, Abu Naeem, Ibn-e-A’sakir).

5> From this tradition, it becomes clear that the descent of Hadrat Gabriel(AS) on earth, the declaration of Unity of Almighty Allah and His Greatness and the proclamation of prophethood of Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) for the first time was made on the Indian soil, which fortunately today is our motherland.
