the Hindu warriors who fought with Immam Hussiyan

Recommended Posts

while reading through the article about Immam Hussaiyan I got these intresting news,As per Mohyal( a norh west group of hindu brahmins some of them known as husaiani brahmins ) folklore, a Mohyal of the Dutt clan had fought on behalf of Imam Hussain in the battle of Karbala, more specifically in the storming of Kufa- sacrificing his seven sons in the process. According to legend, Rahab Sidh Datt (also mentioned as Rahib Sidh or Sidh Viyog Datt in some versions) was the leader of a small band of career-soldiers living near Baghdad around the time of the battle of Karbala. The legend mentions the place where he stayed as Dair-al-Hindiya, meaning “The Indian Quarter”, which matches an Al-Hindiya in existence today. The Dutts have traditionally been referred to as Hussaini Brahminsý since times immemorial[15] Munshi Premchand’s novel ‘Karbala’ also mentions about Hindus fighting for the sake of Imam Hussain, and refers to them as descendants of Ashwatthama, who the Dutt clan considers as it of its ancestors. This legend occupies an important part in the Dutt clan’s oral history[16][17], and is considered a source of pride for them[18].

Zameer Hassan Kazmi, in his article "Imam Husain's Hindu Devotees" published in The Illustrated Weekly of India [19], documents sacrifices made by Hindus, particularly Dutt Brahmins, while fighting on the side of a descendant of Prophet Mohammad.

However, certain historians also believe that the seven persons who stepped forward to take up priesthood earlier had sent a representative each from their respective clans under the leadership of Rahib Sidh Dutt.

Thats an oxymoron.

If they truely belived in Imam Hussain (as)'s cause why did they remain as hindus and especially their desendants now present in india?

Also would Imam Hussain (as) seek help from those who did not believe in one God>?

I dont think they exist, even if they do , I cant see how the Imam AS would allow someone who worships rats etc to fight and die for his cause.

It is a fact that there are Hussaini Brahmins in India who believe that their ancestors fought or tried to help Imam Hussain in Karbala. In fact this bit of information brought me to this site. I first tried to confirm this story on the internet. I came across some articles, but they had no references. Being a person of skeptical frame of mind, I tried to confirm the same at the forum of FFI. I was told there that no historical records confirm such stories apart from the oral traditions of those Hindus.

Amazing Logic ! Amazing ignorance!

I wonder if the Shia hatred of Hindus is greater than their hatred of Yazid.

Anyway, I think it was very stupid of Hindus to go save the behind of the good Imam.

Regards.

Im sure there are hindus that believe that. However as you have mentioned there is no evidence.

It is also very unlikely that polytheist indian hindus would travel thousands of miles to help a fiercely monotheistic cause that they have not heard of. It is also amazingly unlikely that they happen to bump into the either group which traversed the desert for weeks. To believe in something this unlikely without any evidence at all is quite something.

It is true that it is not recorded in Islamic history. But that does not necessarily mean it is untrue. Why would the Mohiyals invent this story ?

They do not say that they came to Iraq especially to fight for Imam Hussain. They just happened to be in the area at the time.

And monotheism or polytheism has nothing to do with it. Even today, there are Hindus with extreme love for the Ahlul Bayt. There are many poems in love of the Ahlul Bayt written by Hindus.

just because something wasnt written in hadith, doesnt make it false. heres a clue...why would hindu history be written in hadiths by arab muslims? widen your horizons you utter......khair, i have a roza.

is it not a fact that hindus were a part of hazrat mukhtar the avengers army? was imam zainul abideen (as) not aware of this? did he tell mukhtar to get rid of them?

Bismillah,

There is no "hinduwarriors" in Karbala. There is only holy companions of Imam Husein (as) and dirty kufar fighting against Imam (as). The karbala was invitation only party, and nobody but chosen people where allowed to travel among Imam (as). Those where the best companions ever, most loyal, most faithfull and its bleshemy to say some of them are "hindus". No.

    • I ma certainly talking about those hadiths which mention the names of ahlul kissa and the other members of the purified family of the prophet saaw.  You are jsut trying to reject the hadiths of the prophet saaw that are authneic and etsbalsihedb one. Moreover, Shia hadith are found according to the  verses of Quran that i have already proven in my reaecrh mentioned in last post. you are just trying to reject the hadith like hadith rejecters and as per your onw words they are misguided, This is a hypocrisy  on your part i think. the link of your words is given below: The verses of Quran are sufficient to compare with the hadith for their authenticity.  I have presented my research already that has a proven method. The knowledge of Quran is not limited to its language of Arabic alone the statistics of the verses of quran are also evidence for truth with the condition that one has to be mindful.
    • 24- When the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse, ‘O ye who believe! When ye consult the Messenger in private, spend something in charity before your private consultation..’ I had a gold coin. I sold it for ten Dirhams and gave it away in charity before my private consultation with God’s Prophet (MGB). I swear by God that none of the companions of the Prophet (MGB) did that either before or after me. Then the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse to the Prophet, ‘Is it that ye are afraid of spending sums in charity before your private consultation (with him)? If, then, ye do not so, and God forgives you, then (at least) establish regular prayer; practise regular charity; and obey God and His Apostle. And God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.’ Is it not that ‘and God forgives you’ refers to a sin committed for which God forgives them. 25- I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘Paradise is forbidden for the Prophets to enter before I enter it, and it is forbidden upon the Trustees to enter before you enter it. O Ali! The Blessed the Sublime God has given me glad tidings about you which He has not given to any of the Prophets who came before me. He has given me glad tidings that you will be the Master of the Trustees and your two sons Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein (MGB) will be the two Masters of the Youth in Paradise on the Resurrection Day.’ 26- My brother Ja’far will be adorned with two wings made of pearl, ruby and chrysolite and fly along with the angels in Paradise.  27- My uncle Hamzih will be the Master of the Martyrs in Paradise. 28- God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘The Blessed the Sublime God has given me a promise about you which will be fulfilled. God has established me as a Prophet and has established you as a Trustee. Soon you shall experience from my nation the same treatment which Moses (MGB) experienced from Pharaoh. However, be patient and consider it to be from God until you see me again. I am the friend of your friends and I consider your enemies to be my enemies.’ 29- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘O Ali! You are the Owner of the Heavenly Pool . No one else will own it. Then some people will come to you and ask for water. You will turn them down and say that there is not even a sip of water. They will return with a black face. Then my followers and yours will enter. You will say, ‘return while satiated with water.’ They will return with a white face.’ (To be continued.........)  
    • I hope all you folks celebrating it have fun. Please think of me when you eat turkey.
    • Seriously bro? Please list them. Jazak Allah khair.
