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 will include verse 3:32 the verse after too, for context, Say, "Obey Allah and the Messenger." But if they turn away - then indeed, Allah does not like the disbelievers. Also, in the verses you showed before, pledging allegiance to the messenger is pledging allegiance to Allah?  I don't see your point here.  It's hard for me to assume this means follow sunnah in these verses. Directly after it refers to Zechariah AS, Mariam ASa and Isa ibn Mariam AS,  there's little to no room fir understanding this to mean Sunnah.  In this Surah,  Isa AS through Allah asked that he be followed , what happened to Isa's Sunnah then?  how he prayed and behaved?   And [I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me. But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?" The disciples said," We are supporters for Allah . We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]. Our Lord, we have believed in what You revealed and have followed the messenger Jesus, so register us among the witnesses [to truth]." Now we have ourselves a real situation.  Allah is drectly telling us in the quran, Obey the messenger and Obey Allah,  now through these verses (3:50-3:53) we find the Messenger isnt just Muhammad SAW is it? Obey Allah = obey messenger  , and by messenger he means any and all of which were sent (which is in verses we used here in the conversation).   Allah commanded Isa AS like he did to Muhammad SAW to follow him the exact same way .... as earlier mentioned... where is Isa's sunnah?
    • AFAIK, the only sect which has hadith witnesses by Quran its truthfulness, is shia. Hadith al‐Thaqalayn "I leave to you the two weighty things; the Book of Allah and my household. You shall not go astray as long as you keep to them. They shall not separate until they shall come to me at the pond (in Paradise)" Quran witnesses the truthfuness of the hadith above. [Shakir 5:55] Only Allah is your Vali and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow. [Shakir 5:56] And whoever takes Allah and His messenger and those who believe for a guardian, then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant. All Muslim sects narrated traditions that Imam Ali had given his ring as charity while he was bowing in prayer and Allah praised him for that and revealed this verse. you can read more in "Life of Imam Ali bin Muhammad Al-Hadi", page 67/201

    • You mentioned you watched Videos, In this thread I posted a Video you can watch for point 1, for point 2 search youtube for Lecture 03.  Lecture 8 for Succession.  http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235052778-difference-between-sunni-and-shia/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-3086229  
    • I have extreme a doubt in those hadith verses as I beleive they contradict the Quran, and itself.  The Prophet Muhammad SAW if he was of true character, could not have said these words.  Allah left us the Quran, not Muhammad. Allah left us the Book of Allah, in that same book Allah states he is the guide and muhammad SAW is not as I have shown in my posts here earlier. He is but a messenger  (quite literally in quran as I also referenced). For these reasons I don't hold these hadith as authentic.  As I mentioned before ,  why is that necessary?  Are the way Jews and Christians pray from their traditions wrong, or how their (our) messengers did?  I practice the way others learned who believe they learned it from those who saw the Prophet do it.   That is sufficient for me, as how I pray does not dictate my place in hell or heaven, so as long as its Allah who recieves my worship.
