Lord of Najd – Part 2
The Forbidden Kingdom
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
“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 head of Satan.” [ Volume 2, Book 17, Number 147]
Wahabi say: “we find that this Hadeith does not refer to the Najd (Riyadh) that is famously known in Saudi today, but rather it refers to Iraq“.
They say that:
‘The Najd for those people living in Madina is in the direction of the East would be Iraq.’
But look at the given map if we see the East from Madina then where Najd is?
To believe that Najd is not in Iraq but in fact in Saudi Arabia. Using their simplistic methodology of “only” Quran & Sunnah, this post will show how relying solely on hadith from Sahih Bukhari and Muslim, one has no choice but to accept that Najd is not in Iraq.
First of all, for those who are unaware of the subject matter , I would like to give you a little background as to why we should even bother debating this issue.
The following hadith is from Sahih Bukhari:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Dinar:
Ibn ‘Umar said, “The Prophet fixed Qarn as the Miqat (for assuming the Ihram) for the people of Najd, and Al-Juhfa for the people of Sham, and Dhul-Hulaifa for the people of Medina.” Ibn ‘Umar added, “I heard this from the Prophet, and I have been informed that the Prophet said, ‘The Miqat for the Yemenites is Yalamlam.’ “WhenIraq was mentioned, he said, “At that time it was not a Muslim country.” [Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 443]
Sahih Muslim: Book 007, Number 2666:
Abu Zubair heard Jabir b. ‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) as saying as he was asked about (the place for entering upon the) state of Ihram: I heard (and I think he carried it directly to the Apostle of Allah ) him saying: For the people of Medina Dhu’l-Hulaifa is the place for entering upon the state of Ihram, and for (the people coming through the other way, i. e. Syria) it is Juhfa; for the people of Iraq it is Dbat al-’Irq; for the people of Najd it is Qarn (al-Manazil) and for the people of Yemen it is Yalamlam.
Therefore , there should be no doubt that in fact Najd andIraq are two different places, and not one and the same, as the pseudo-salafis would have you beleive.
‘This is the center of Kufr from where the horn of Shaitaan will rise’
The coordinates of Medinah is 2433N 03942E.
Najd/Riyadh is 2443N 04644E
Notice almost the same latitude of Najd/Riyadh and Medinah – i.e. 24xx.
The latitude of the towns in Iraq are 3040N (Basrah) and 3340N (Baghad).
Therefore Iraq is North or North-North East of Medinah rather East
“No,It’s in Iraq”:
Even the briefest glimpse at a modern atlas will show that a straight line drawn to the east of al-Madina al-Munawwara does not pass anywhere near Iraq, but passes some distance to the south of Riyadh; that is to say, through the exact centre of Najd. The hadiths which speak of ‘the East’ in this context hence support the view that Najd is indicated, not Iraq.
Also spelled Nejd, region, central Saudi Arabia, comprising a mainly rocky plateau sloping eastward from the mountains of the Hejaz. On the northern, eastern, and southern sides, it is bounded by the sand deserts of an-Nafud, ad-Dahna’, and the Rub’ al-Khali. It is sparsely settled, except for the fertile oases strung along the escarpment of Jabal (mountains) Tuwayq and the al-‘Aramah plateau…http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9054702/Najd
Puncturing the Devil’s Dream About the Hadiths of Najd and Tamim
Sham ,Yeman and the Evil from Najad
Note: look at the hypocrisy/dishonesty of Wahabi’s they even didn’t name any of province of modern Saudi Arabia as Najd out of 13 provinces, when they 1stly captured the Najd, their 1st state was Najd, their King, first took the title as the King of Najd (Sultan of Najd) in Jan, 1927 (check 3rd source in finding of Najd).
