Pathans


MUSLIMS  FROM THE LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL

Quran tells the 2 Divisions of Progeny of 

Prophet Ishaq  and Prophet Yaqoob

Quran tells us about the two divsions among the Progeny of Prophet Isaaq (alayhay salam) 

وَبٰرَكْنَا عَلَيْهِ وَعَلٰٓي اِسْحٰقَ ۭ وَمِنْ ذُرِّيَّـتِهِمَا مُحْسِنٌ وَّظَالِمٌ لِّنَفْسِهٖ مُبِيْنٌ     ١١٣؀ۧ
اور ہم نے ان پر اور اسحاق پر برکتیں نازل کی تھیں اور ان دونوں کی اولاد میں سے نیکو کار بھی ہیں اور اپنے آپ پر صریح ظلم کرنے والے (یعنی گنہگار) بھی ہیں
We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.-37-113
Again Quran tells the division of Muslims and Non Muslims amongst the Bani Israel at the time of Prophet Musa (Alayhay salam)


     وَمِنْ قَوْمِ مُوْسٰٓي اُمَّةٌ يَّهْدُوْنَ بِالْحَقِّ وَبِهٖ يَعْدِلُوْنَ




1.    اور موسٰی (علیہ السلام) کی قوم میں سے ایک جماعت (ایسے لوگوں کی بھی) ہے جو حق کی راہ بتاتے ہیں اور اسی کے مطابق عدل (پر مبنی فیصلے) کرتے ہیں
Of the people of Moses there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth-7-159
The same is told again in this verse and also it shows that Bani Israel is scattered all around the world
وَقَطَّعْنٰهُمْ فِي الْاَرْضِ اُمَمًا ۚمِنْهُمُ الصّٰلِحُوْنَ وَمِنْهُمْ دُوْنَ ذٰلِكَ   ۡ  وَبَلَوْنٰهُمْ بِالْحَسَنٰتِ وَالسَّيِّاٰتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُوْنَ    ١٦٨؁
اور ہم نے ان کو جماعت جماعت کر کے ملک میں منتشر کر دیا۔ بعض ان میں سے نیکو کار ہیں اور بعض اور طرح کے (یعنی بدکار) اور ہم آسائشوں اور تکلیفوں (دونوں) سے ان کی آزمائش کرتے رہے تاکہ (ہماری طرف) رجوع کریں۔
And We cut them up into communities on the earth; some of them righteous, and some of them otherwise; and We proved them wifh good and evil that haply they may return.7-168
We again see the same division between Muslims and Non Muslim Bani Israel at the time of Prophet Eisa (Alayhay salam)
يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا كُوْنُوْٓا اَنْصَارَ اللّٰهِ كَمَا قَالَ عِيْسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ لِلْحَوَارِيّٖنَ مَنْ اَنْصَارِيْٓ اِلَى اللّٰهِ ۭ
 قَالَ الْحَــوَارِيُّوْنَ نَحْنُ اَنْصَارُ اللّٰهِ فَاٰمَنَتْ طَّاۗىِٕفَةٌ مِّنْۢ بَنِيْٓ اِسْرَاۗءِيْلَ وَكَفَرَتْ طَّاۗىِٕفَةٌ ۚ فَاَيَّدْنَا 
الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا عَلٰي عَدُوِّهِمْ فَاَصْبَحُوْا ظٰهِرِيْنَ      14؀ۧ
اے ایمان والو! تم اللہ کے مددگار بن جاؤ جیسا کہ عیسٰی ابن مریم (علیہما السلام) نے (اپنے)
 حواریوں سے کہا تھا: اللہ کی (راہ کی) طرف میرے مددگار کون ہیں؟ حواریوں نے کہا: ہم اللہ کے مددگار ہیں۔ پس بنی اسرائیل کا ایک گروہ ایمان لے آیا اور دوسرا گروہ کافر ہوگیا، سو ہم نے ان لوگوں کی جو ایمان لے آئے تھے ان کے دشمنوں پر مدد فرمائی پس وہ غالب ہوگئے
O ye who believe! Be ye helpers of Allah: As said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples, "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the disciples, "We are Allah's helpers!" then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed, against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.-61-14
This clearly shows that family of Prophet Isaaq (alayhay salam) or the Family of His Son Prophet Israel is divided in two groups both in his life and afterwards (since Quran is for all times till the end of time and not only for the time of Prophet Isaaq(alayhay salam)).
1-Mulim Bani Ishaq or Bani Israel (Bani Israel also means Bani Ishaq since Isaaq is father of Israel)
2-Non Muslim Bani Ishaq (i.e the Jews which make only 2 out of 12  tribes of Bani Isreal / Isaaq)

Amongst Muslims only the Pathan or Pashtun or Pakhtun or Ethnic Afghan are claimed to be amongst the 10 lost tribes of Israel.
Pashtuns  are an ethnic/religious group of people, living primarily in Afghanistan, Pakistan, who speak Pashto or Pakhto language and  indigenous religion. The Pashtuns are the world's largest patriarchal tribal group in existence. The total population of the group is estimated at 52 million.
Pathans are the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan.Infact the word Afghan is synonymous to Pashtun as told in the following reference:
The word Afghan ... first appears in history in the Hudud-al-Alam, a work by an  Arab geographer who wrote in 982 A.D." Until the advent of the modern Afghan state in the 18th century, the word Afghan has been synonymous with Pashtun.
Its a pity how the West change history inorder to hide the elemination of Pathans in Afghanistan.They even changed the meaning of the word Afghan which always meant the PATHANS or PASHTUNS.This is admitted in Encarta.
Until the term Afghan came to mean any native of Afghanistan, Pashtuns were called Afghans.
The theory that the Pashtun or "ethnic Afghan"s are descended from the ancient Israelites—more precisely, from the perspective of Jewish history the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel— has a longstanding basis as a tradition among the Pashtun themselves, was widely accepted by 19th century British scholars, and has been accepted by some reasonably recent and prominent individuals such as Itzhak Ben-Zvi, second President of Israel. Ref: http://www.pakhtun.com/israeliSource.htm

THE CLAIM BY THE PATHANS AS BEING FROM BANI ISRAEL IS NOT JUST ORAL TRADITION

The claim of Afghans to be the Bani Israel (Children of Israel) is not founded on oral tradition alone. It is supported by ancient monuments, old inscriptions, manuscripts, and historical works, many in the public domain, and many others in private collections.

WRITTEN REFERENCES OLDER THAN 1000

 YEARS TELLS THE TRUTH  

Apart from our own reference ,the oldest written reference we find is HUDUD-AL-ALAM written in 982AD by an Arab Geographer which clearly tells that PATHANS are not from ARAYANs but from BANI ISRAEL(infact he never mentioned the word ARAYAN)
Also the word Afghan ... first appears in history in the Hudud-al-Alam and infact until the advent of the modern Afghan state in the 18th century, the word Afghan has been synonymous with Pashtun.

Now in moderen times some of the Western Historians tell us that the Pathans are from the ARYANS and deny the ancient claim of the Pashtuns that they belong to the Lost tribes of Israel.This doesnt make any sense that someone from outside deny the claim of a whole Nation
 
   

ACCORDING TO HADITH, THE DETAILED

PROOF OF PASHTUNS AS BANI ISRAEL


We shall prove this by first taking the following three Ahadith as the base.
These Ahadith tells that only the Bani Ishaq will fight the final war with the Christians and only they will conquer Constantinople at the time of Prophet Eisa ( Jesus ) Alayhay Salam and Imam Mahdi..

·  The Armegeddon with the Christians will only and only be fought by the Bani Isaaq Muslims and not the Arab Muslims as it is clear from the following three Ahadith
·  1-Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people of the earth at that time will come from Medina (to counteract them). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans would say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisoners from amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say: Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethren that you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part of the army). which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah's eye, would be killed ani the third who would never be put to trial would win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as they would be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves) after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: The Dajjal has taken your place among your family. They would then come out, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, he would come out while they would be still preparing themselves for battle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ).
 " Reference: Saheeh Muslim, Kitaab al-Fitan, 8 - 175, 176.
 




 The above hadith tells us the biggest fight with the Christians or the Armageddon.
We see these points in this hadith
1.      1/3rd of Muslims will be left behind after this Armageddon
2.      These 1/3rd Muslims will conquer Constantinople. 
Now who are these Muslims who have fought this Armegeddon with the Christians and then conquered Constantinople???
The folowing Hadith will clear this question as it clearly tells that these Muslims are from the BANI ISHAQ only.
·  Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle  (may peace he upon him) saying: You have heard about a city the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allall's Messenger, yes. Therer upon he said: The Last Hour would not come unlesss seventy thousand[1] persons from Bani lshaq would attack it. When they would land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor would shower arrows but would only say:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest," that one side of it would fall. Thaur (one of the narrators) said: I think that he said: The part by the side of the ocean. Then they would say for the second time:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest" that the second side would also fall, and they would say:" There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest," that the gates would be opened for them and they would enter therein and, they would be collecting spoils of war and distributing them amongst themselves that a noise would be heard and It would be said: Verily, Dajjal has come. And thus they would leave everything there and would turn to him.*   Reference Book 041, Number 6979: Saheh Muslim










  • So this proves that Only the Bani Ishaq will fight against the Christians in the Armegeddon and they will be left behind to conquer Constantinople.













  •  Now we have two more points by reading the above Ahadith i.e
    3.      After conquering Constantinople these 1/3rd Muslims will hear a cry of coming of Dajjal.
    4.      Then these 1/3rd Muslims will start preparing for prayers (Salat )before the war when Prophet Sayyidna Eisa (Jesus) Alayhay Salam will come.
    Now when they will be waiting for the Prayers (Salat) what will be the situation of the Arabs? This is told in the following hadith.
     When these two event will be over then a small number of Arabs will join these forces as told in this hadith. 
    * Narrated by Hadrat Umama a long Hadith from Dear Prophet(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) where Umm Sharik said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day?(Meaning why the Arabs wont come forward and fight for Islam ). He(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said: They would be small in number? And from that remaning Arabs,most of them will be in Bait-ul-Muqaddas (Sham) and their leader will be a pious man (Mahdi).When their leader will move forward to lead the Morning prayers,then,Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will descend from the sky.The leader will step back so that  Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will lead the prayers but Hazrat Eisa(Alayhay salam) will put his hand on his back between his shoulders and say Move forward and lead the prayers because the Aqamah was called for you.Then the Imam will lead the prayers to all people. (Reference :  Sunan Abi Majah ,307,308)
     
    ·  That’s why hadith tells that Very little Arabs will be left to fight Dajjal.
    The following hadith (along with the above two ahadith) clearly tells that Arabs will join only when Bani Ishaq Muslims will be preparing for war and at the time of Salat, Prophet Eisa Alayhay Salam will come.
    Two points are cleared here that the Arabs
    1. Will not take part in the war with the Christians and
    2. Will not participate in the conquest of Constantinople.
    3. they will only come (in a very small number) when Bani Ishaq Muslims will be preparing for Prayers (Salat) (before war against Dajjal) and when Prophet Jesus arrives.
     Please be clear that these two ahadith tells that
    The time of Waiting for Salat (prayers) and coming of Prophet Jesus (Eisa)  is  AFTER the Armageddoon with the Christians and AFTER the conqest of Constantinople .
    ·  Also the following Authentic hadith clearly tells that the NON ARABS will fight the GREAT WARS OF ISLAM in the End of Times
     

    Narrated Hazrat Abu Huraira(R.A)


    "When great wars will occur,then Allah subhanahu wa ta ala will rise an Army from the Non Arabs who will be greater riders and will have better weapons than the Arabs. Allah subhahu wa ta ala will support Deen (Islam) by them"
    (Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah Hadith 971 volume 3) 

    So this army will consist majority of the non arabs
    Do you need more proof? Check the following hadith
    The following hadith again clearly tells that very less number of Arabs will be present to fight Dajjal(they wont be present to fight the Armageddon with the Christians
     3-Umm Sharik reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The people would run away from the Dajjal seeking shelter in the mountains. She said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day? He said: They would be small in number.( Reference : Saheeh Muslim Book 041, Number 7035) 
     
    PART-2 of Discussion

    Now keep in mind the above Ahadith so that now we shall search for the Bani Ishaq among the Muslims who will join Imam Mahdi.

    In other words

    It also means that if we search for the Muslims who will join Imam Mahdi then we can find out who are the Bani Ishaq among the Muslims.




    Part-1 Finding the Geographical location of Mahdi’s Army



    Sign-1 They will come from the East

    • Adbullah bin Haris (R.A) reported that Dear Propet(salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said, InSome people will come out from the EAST who will make Caliphate(Islamic rule) easy for Imam Mahdi.*1 *1*Reference Ibn-e-Majah 4088


    • Narrated by Thoban(radi Allah Anho) that Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) (May blessing and peace from Allah be upon him) said that:" Black Flags will appear from the direction of the East and they will wage such terrible war with you as no nation has ever fought with  you before. When you see them  then give allegiance even if yuo have to crawl over ice to give allegiance to them because the Caliph of Allah , Mahdi is among them (Al-Asha-ah page 240)
     
    Note : There are many more Ahadith also about the army of the East helping Mahdi, but I have written only one so that the discussion doesn’t become too lengthy.

    Sign-2 They will be from Khorasan


    Dear Prophet Muhammad(salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa  sallam) said that”When you hear the   news of Black Flags coming from the East, then, you must join them even if you have to crawl over ice(to reach them).*1   Ref: Saheeh Trimdi J2,Page 56.
     Note : There are many more Ahadith also about the army from Khorasan helping Mahdi, but I have written only one so that the discussion doesn’t become too lengthy. 
    Now so far we have found out that the Madhi’s Army will be from
    1. The East
    2. and then in Khorasan in the East.

    Part-2 Finding the culture of Army of Mahdi                     .



    Sign-3 Clothes of Mahdi will be Qutwani Cloaks

    ·  Narrated Hazrat Umama reported Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa alay he wa  sallam) said: You and the Romans(Christians) will have four peace treaties *4. The fourth peace would be at the hand of a person who would be from the Al-e-Haroon( family of Prophet Haroon).This peace treaty would be for seven years. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was asked who would be the Imam of the Muslims at that time. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said” That person would be from my family,his age would be 40 years ,his face would be bright as a start and a black spot would be on his right cheek.He would be wearing two Qutwani Cloaks.He will appear exactly as the person from Bani Israeel. He will rule for 20 years and will conquer the cities of the Mushrikeen(Idolaters) *5*5  (Ref: Kanz-ul-Aamal, Page 268,  Hadith No 3868).This hadith proves that the Saheeh Muslim hadith(No4 above) means Bani-Ishaq as Al-e-Haroon and Bani-Israel  have the same meaning as Bani-Ishaq.
    · 

    NOW WHAT IS MEANT BY QUTWANI ?????


    According to the reference of the kafirs i.e Britannica 1997 :Qutwani cloaks resembles the "TALLIT"  of present day as called by the Israelis.Both Qutwani cloak and TALLIT have fringes (tzitzit) on borders and its mostly made of Wool.. It generally falls across the head, neck, and shoulders. However the Qutwani cloak is larger and more conspicuous prayer shawl than the Tallit.
    Now according to the Hadith there are “Two” Qutwani cloaks mentioned and are made of Wool (as many scholars described it ) and are wrapped around the body.Qutwani cloak is exactly like the cloaks worn by the Pashtoons of Afghanistan and Pakistan and its also worn in the same way like the Qutwani cloak described in the hadith and its explanation.
    The Pashtuns wrap these cloak around them to protect them from cold weather and they have fringes on the borders.Infact these cloaks are often the necessary part of the Pashtun dress (In Contrast to the present day jews who wear the so called Tziitzit as a symbol and which are much smaller to be wrapped around the body.infact it has just become a  something to show off by jews and not essential part of dress).
      



    The above mentioned hadith telling that Imam Mahdi would be from the  family of Dear Prophet (salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) but would NOT look like Dear Prophet(salallaho alayhay wa  alay he wa sallam) in appearance  clearly tells that Mahdi will  not be living among the Arabs  .His appearance described as wearing Qutwani cloaks and looking like a person from Bani Israel shows that he must have been living among the Pathans for a long time and therefore IMAM MAHDI would be dressed also like the Pathans.
    The Arabs Do not wrap cloaks around them like this and also their cloaks never have fringes and are not made of wool because is not so cold in middle east.


    Now we have located the Area from where the Army of Mahdi will come.
    1. Wearing Qutwani Cloaks just like the Pashtuns
    2. Imam Mahdi will look like the people of Israel
    3.  

    Sign-4 Mahdi will look like Bani Israel


    The above hadith also tells that Madhi’s appearance will be like the Bani Israel (Check again the words of Hadith).
    “He (Imam Mahdi) would be wearing two Qutwani Cloaks.He will appear exactly as the person from Bani Israeel. He will rule for 20 years and will conquer the cities of the Mushrikeen(Idolaters)   (Ref: Kanz-ul-Aamal, Page 268,  Hadith No 3868).
    And the following more ahadith
    • The blessed Mahdi’s stature and posture resemble those   of the    People of Israel. (Reference:Al-Qawl Al-Mukhtasar Fi alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 36-29.)
    • ·        He will resemble one of the Israelites [in his external appearance]. (Reference: Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal).
       ·        It is as if he is a man from the people of Israel.  (Reference: Nuaym ibn   Hammad, vr. 52a; Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi, Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar).
      

    Part-2 Finding the specific race of Army of Mahdi            .



    Note: Sayyidna Ishaq (Alayhay Salam) is father of Sayyidna Israel (Alayhay Salam) so Bani Israel and Bani Ishaq have same meaning. Also Sayyidna Haroon (Aron)(Alayhay salam) Is from Bani Israel

    Sign-5 Bani Ishaq (Bani Israel )will be with Mahdi

    Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle  (may peace he upon him) saying: You have heard about a city the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allall's Messenger, yes. Therer upon he said: The Last Hour would not come unlesss seventy thousand[1] persons from Bani lshaq would attack it…continued…(Saheeh Muslim)

    Sign-6 Al-e-Harun (Bani Israel) will be with Mahdi

    Narrated Hazrat Umama reported Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa alay he wa  sallam) said: You and the Romans(Christians) will have four peace treaties *4. The fourth peace would be at the hand of a person who would be from the Al-e-Haroon( family of Prophet Haroon)…..cont…. (Ref: Kanz-ul-Aamal, Page 268,  Hadith No 3868). This hadith proves that the Saheeh Muslim hadith(No4 above) means Bani-Ishaq as Al-e-Haroon and Bani-Israel  have the same meaning as Bani-Ishaq. 

     

    Sign-7 Mahdi himself will look like Bani Israel

    Since the Army of Mahdi is from Bani Israel,therefore Imam Mahdi will also appear like them (I am writing the above ahadith again)

    • The blessed Mahdi’s stature and posture resemble those   of the    People of Israel. (Reference:Al-Qawl Al-Mukhtasar Fi alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 36-29.)
    ·        He will resemble one of the Israelites [in his external appearance]. (Reference: Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal).

    ·        It is as if he is a man from the people of Israel.  (Reference: Nuaym ibn   Hammad, vr. 52a; Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi, Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar).

     Conclusion

    Now we have the location of Mahdi’s Army as

    1.      From the East

    2.      From Khorasan

    And for the appearance ,Imam Mahdi

    3.      Hewill be wearing the Qutwani Cloaks

    4.      Mahdi’s appearance will be like the Bani Israel.

     And the people joining Mahdi will be

    5.      From Al-e-Harun (Bani Israel)

    6.      From Bani Ishaq (Bani Israel)

    7.      and from Bani Israel………………..(All three names have the same meaning)

     So now the only Muslim race that is

             I.      Living in the East

           II.      Living in Khorasan

          III.      Wearing the Qutwani Cloaks

     Are Pashtuns and at the same time they are the only Muslim race living in the same location and considered to be from the

       IV.      Lost tribes of Israel

     This proves that that the Pashtuns are from the lost tribes of Israel

    Further Proof

    Sign-8 Tribe of Kash will help Mahdi

    A Sufyani (A person from Quraish tribe) in the Arabian Peninsula will be the enemy of Imam Mahdi and the tribe of KASH (in Arabic they spelled it Qais but this is not Arabic Word ) will fight against Sufyani as told in the following Hadith

    Narrated by Hazrat Abu Huraira(R.A) Dear Prophet(Salallaho alayhay wa alay he wa sallam) said: That a person called Sufyani will appear from the suburbs of Damascus and his general followers will be the people of Kulaib Tribe.He attack(so fiercely) that he will cut the bellies of Women and kill children. To fight against him, the people of the Tribe of Qais will gather. Sufyani will fight them and kill them so much that no valley will be left without their dead bodies .Reference:Mustadrik J4 P 520

     Where is the tribe of KASH?

    KASH is known as the forefather of the Pashtuns because he is the first one to embrace Islam.
    Note:Please note that the Muslim Bani Israel accepted Islam by accepting Dear Prophet Muhammad (Salallaho alayhay wa alayhi wa sallam) as the last Prophet. They themselves had always believed in ONE GOD and never did SHIRK ( Paganism) and followed the true teaching of Prophet Sayyidan Musa ( Moses ) Alayahy Salam.
    His  name is actually KASH or KISH but the Arabs pronounced it QAIS.When he became Muslim he was then known as  ABDUR RASHEED.
    QAIS or KASH is actually the name of numerous personalities of the Childern of Isalm according to the Chronicles such as the following examples from the Chronicles.
    29 Jeiel* the father of Gibeon lived in Gibeon, and the name of his wife was Maacah. 30His firstborn son: Abdon, then Zur, Kish, Baal,* Nadab, 31Gedor, Ahio, Zecher, 32and Mikloth, who became the father of Shimeah.
    33 Ner became the father of Kish, Kish of Saul,* Saul* of Jonathan, Malchishua, Abinadab, and Esh-baal;
    12 The following are those who came to David at Ziklag, while he could not move about freely because of Saul son of Kish; they were among the mighty warriors who helped him in war.
    KISH ABDUR RASHEED had his name from his Bani Israeli forefathers.
    Note :Some people mistake him from the KISH who is the decendant of King Saul but he is actullay this KISH is the name of his forefather.He was named after his forefathers.
    In Pakistan and Afghanistan we find many places where Pashtuns live by the name of KISH/KASH such as
    ·        DASHT-E-KASH (a desert in southern Afghanistan),
    ·        The city  of Kish Khenjak in Afghanistan in Velayat-e Oruzgan .
    ·         The Solomon mountain range is also know by Pashtuns as the KASH GHAR (The Mountain of KASH or QAIS)
    ·        The HINDU KASH mountain range.

     SO ONLY THE PASHTUNS CLAIM TO BE FROM THE FAMILY OF KASH (or Qais as Arabs pronounce it) AND AT THE SAME TIME LIVE IN THE SAME AREA PROPHECIZED TO MAKE THE ARMY OF MAHDI

     

    WE HAVE THE PROOF NOW BUT TO

     FURTHER PROVE OUR POINT WE SHALL

     ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS

    Some people argue that the Turk race living in the same geographical area of the EAST and in Khorasan might be the Army of Mahdi or the Muslim Bani Israel that will join Mahdi.
    The answer to this question can also be found from ahadith as the Turks of Khorasan will be the followers of DAJJAL and not Prophet Eisa (Jesus) Alayhay Salam.



    Also the TURK races of Khorasan have been mentioned as the followers of DAJJAL and so they can never be from the ARMY OF MAHDI...as these ahadith tells us.
    The following hadith further tells that these Turks will be from Khorasan.
    1) Narrated by Amr ibn Hurayth quoted AbuBakr as-Siddiq as saying that Allah's Messenger (Salallaho alayhay wa sallam)told them the Dajjal would come forth from a land in the East called Khurasan, followed by people whose faces resembled shields covered with skin*1. Ref: Saheeh Trimdi .Also Hadith No. 5251 in Mishkat-ul-Misabeeh)

    DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MONGOLS & TURKS
    2) Narrated Abu Huraira:


    Allah's Apostle(sallaho alayhay wa sallam) said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Turks; people with small eyes, red faces, and flat noses. Their faces will look like shields coated with leather. The Hour will not be established till you fight with people whose shoes are made of hair." Ref: Saheh Bokhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 179
     

     In the above two Ahadith please check the that the word “FACES LIKE SHEILDS” is commonly used for
    1.      The Turks and
    2.      The Turks of Khorasan
    Which means that FACES LIKE SHEILDS and SMALL EYES people are the TURKS of Khorasan which are different nations with same TURK CULTURE.
    And
    The MONGOLS
    are the People wearing Hairy Shoes also called TARTARS.
    Notice:
    The word used here is TURK NATIONS  OF KHORASAN. Which clearly tells that in KHORASAN there are different races with different names but all are known as TURKS which clearly points out towards the
    UZBEKS, TURKAMAN, TAJIKS, QAZAKS, CHECHENS,HAZARAS, etc which are different nations but all have
    “COMMON TURK CULTURE”

    Here are more ahadith telling about the Fight with Turks
    3) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet(Salallaho alayhay wa sallam)said, "The Hour will not be established till you fight a nation till you fight the people with faces like layers Shields (i.e the people with big round faces like the Turks,of Khorasan) Ref. Saheeh Muslims
     










  •    THE TIME FRAME FOR FIGHT WITH MONGOLS AND TURKS
          The following hadith clearly tells that first Muslims fought with the people with Hairy Shoes i.e the
         MONGOLS (as proved in the previous Ahadith) and then near the end of times, they will fight with   the TURKS.....so both are in different time periods and should be differentiated from each other.

             4)...) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet(Salallaho alayhay wa sallam)said, "The Hour  will not be established till you fight a nation wearing hairy shoes, and till you fight the people wearing shoes made of Hair and  The Hour  will not be established till you fight a nation , who will have small eyes and flat noses

















    • Note : The flat noses means having flat noses (because if your nose is flat,your face is flat)which also resemble the word FACES FLAT LIKE SHEILDS.
      ·         The following is another hadith telling about the fight with  TURKS in the end of days 
      5)...Hazrat Buraida r.a(Companion of Dear Prophet Muhammad Salallaho alayhay wa sallam) reported that Dear Prophet Muhammad Salallaho alayhay wa sallam) said: A nation will wage war with you who will have small eyes,meaning the TURKS.You will drive them three times until you will drive them to the Arabian Peninsula .The first time you push them back ,those who will run away among them will get salvation,and in the 2nd time some will get salvation and some will be killed and the third time u drive them back,they will be up rooted or the way you said it.*Ref Sunan Abu Daud

    PLACES OF EXILE

    In the he biblical Book Isaiah it is said :
    Isaiah 11:11-12 :and he will raise a Banner to the Gentiles and will gather the banished of Israel ,and the dispersed of Judah will he bring together from the four corners of the earth".
    The places of exile of the lost tribes also mentioned in the books also point out the present day Afghanistan
    The Locations of the Exile. Other locations mentioned as placed of exile were the river Gozan, Habor, . Halah or Lahlah, and Hara. (Ref:Kings II,17 and 18; Chronicles 1,5).
    Also check  in Chronicles 5:26  at http://bible.cc/1_chronicles/5-26.htm 
    “The God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgath Pilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, and brought them to Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river of Gozan, to this day.” 

    Where are these places of Exile?

    According to Saadia Gaon, “ River Gozan ” is the river north of the city of Balach in the north of Afghanistan. The river is known today as the “ Amu Darya ”, and is the border between Afghanistan and Russia. Afghanistan tradition states that the whole river was once known as the Gozen River.

    “Hara” is the city of Harat near the Persian border. It is the third largest city in Afghanistan . The prophecy of Isaiah states that the exile will bring the tribes to the land of Sinim”:
     “Behold , these shall come from far, and , lo, these from the north and from the west, and these from the land of Sinim “( Isaiah 49:12) .
    This implies that the exile may have started 

        

    THE UN-RELIABLE SOURCES OF INFORMATION

    According to Quran ,Sura Al-Hujurat, verse No=6 (The following are three translations of the verse.)
    سُوۡرَةُ الحُجرَات
    يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِن جَآءَكُمۡ فَاسِقُۢ بِنَبَإٍ۬ فَتَبَيَّنُوٓاْ أَن تُصِيبُواْ قَوۡمَۢا بِجَهَـٰلَةٍ۬ فَتُصۡبِحُواْ عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلۡتُمۡ نَـٰدِمِينَ (٦)
    YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth….
    PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! If an evil-liver bring you tidings, verify it……
    SHAKIR: O you who believe! if an evil-doer comes to you with a report, look carefully into it,…
    The tragedy is that now majority of the world believes in the news, history and other reports that come from the Kafirs of the West and is accepted with the eyes closed with no investigation as the Quran tells us to do so. Priority is given to the reference of those people who had been in dark ages for one thousand years in which they lost all their own knowledge and culture.They started learning was in the 1400 A.Ds after their interaction with the Muslims in the Crusades. A Kafir from the West would tell us the History of India and we will put aside our own written history . Maybe inferiority complex(for no reason) is the cause of such folly. It is for that reason, such unreliable resources are as much avoided as possible in this essay

    HISTORY CONCEALED

    Its not amazing that so called famous historians of the west like
    Sir Olaf Carou,("The Pathans” St. Martin's Press - New York 1958)
     and Mr.Frizer Tiller,("The Afghanistan") have intentionally tried to deviate the readers from the true origin of Pashtoons.Like for instance all the above writers shows their :”innocence” and “ignorance” over the true origin of the word “PATHAN”. All these are Christian writers and they have intentionally skipped the fact that the word Pathan is of Israeli origin as clearly written in the CHRONILCES-II that the Great grandson of King Saul and grandson of Jonathon was called PETHAN.
    Even Mr.Olaf Carou, in his book, is very much confused about the origin of the word Pathan and gives his own stupid ideas about this word and not mentioning the Chronicles-II at all. This is what we call Historical Forgery which the West have a Mastery.
    Also they have skipped the fact that was the name of the grandson of KING SAUL was called AFGHANA..
    Also these liars never motioned that the name of the second son of Levi and father of Amram was called KOHAT (Ref: Gen. 46:11) and its also the name of a famous city in the Pathan area of Pakistan
    LETS ASK ALLAH TO SAVE US FROM THE LIES AND FRAUD OF THESE DECEIVING WESTERN HISTORIANS AND MAY WE NEVER TRUST THIER REFERENCES .AMEEN. 
    Note:Definition of Cronicles: Also called (in early Roman Catholic translation into English) PARALIPOMENON I AND II, two Old Testament books that were originally part of a larger work that included the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. These three (Ezra and Nehemiah were one book in the Jewish canon) were the final books of the Hebrew Bible.
    All the British Scholars in the 19th century never mentioned that Pathans are Aryans. Then suddenly some so called historians of the modern times in West claimed that Pathans/Pashtuns/Pakhtuns are Aryans and denied the claim of the Pathans of being from the Lost Tribes of Israel. One Un Biased Writer has said: "The Europeans always confuse things, when they consider the fact that the Afghans call themselves Bani Israel and yet reject their Jewish descent. Indeed, the Afghans discard the very idea of any descent from the Jews. They, however, yet claim themselves to be of Bani Israel." [Thomas Ledlie, More Ledlian, Calcutta Review, January, 1898] 
    If Pathans are ARAYANs then so are the MARHATAS or The BERHAMAN Hindus, The Kashmiri Hindu Pandits, The Punjabi Arain Caste,The Jatt cast of Punajab, the Germans and so many numrous castes......it makes a strange situation when we say That Ahmad Shah Abdali was Fighting with the Pathans who were non Muslims i.e the MARHATAS....
    It doesnt make sense since the Physical n Facial features of Pathans are entirely different from the Marhatas and PunjabisThese are all wrong claims put forward by some modern writers .The fact is that if Pathan's forfather have always called themselves as from the Childern of Prophet Israel then how come some modern day Western Writers deny this fact
    The real  intention is only to change the meaning of ahadith which lead to the fact of Pathans being the Bani Israelis...u can find many references about this at
     http://muslimisraelis.googlepages.com/home
    The declaration of saying that PATHANS are Aryans come from some modern days writers of the WEST and NOT FROM A SINGLE REFERENCE OF THE PAST or FROM THE REFERENCES OF OUR OWN FORFATHERS
    It is a pity that we follow the reference of the people who were in dark ages for a thousand years (from 400 AD to 1400 AD),who had lost all sources of knowledge, history and culture in these 1000 years of darkness and who developed when they interacted with the Muslims in the Crusades which they never admit this .According to Quran ,Sura Al-Hujurat, verse No=6
    49/6 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَنْ تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَى مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ
    O you who believe! if an evil-doer comes to you with a report, look carefully into it,…
    This verse tells us to be careful from the reports of the non believers 
    The WEST tell us that the Pathans are from the ARYANS and deny the ancient claim of the Pashtuns that they belong to the Lost tribes of Israel.Its a funny thing to call Pasthuns as Arayans as the PUNJABI people, The Kashmiris and so many ethnic groups in India belong to the ARYANS and they have nothing in common with the Pathans. May Allah guide us all amen(allahuma salay ala Muhammad).
    WHY THE MODERN SO CALLED WESTERN HISTORIANS ARE BENT ON DENYING THE CLAIM OF PATHANS?
    .The reason is only to distort the meaning of ahadith where among Muslims people from the family of Prophet Ishaq (alayhay salam) and Prophet Yaqub or Israel (Alayhay salam) are told to be living in the East in the Historical region of Khorasan

    The Pashtuns or Pathans are the world’s only claimants of

     Israelite descent whose claim is backed by so many

     medieval references, spanning hundreds of years.

    Abu Sulayman Daud’s Rauza-ul-Bab Twarikh-ul-Akbar-wal-Ansab (The Garden of the Learned in the History of Great Men and Genealogies) (AH 717/1310 CE) is considered the earliest work on the subject of the Israelite origin of Afridi Pashtuns/Pathans. It is a history of the Afghan/Pashtun/Pathan nation since the time of Moses. (Ref : Benjamin, Joshua M., The Mystery of Israel’s Ten Lost Tribes and the Legend of Jesus in India, 2nd edition, Mosaic Books, New Delhi, p. 16)
    The author in his Introduction explains that ever since the times of Moses the ancestors of Afghans have had to face great hardships. They were expelled from place to place and exterminated. Their ancient ancestors were sacked more than once and carried into captivity. In Chapter I a detailed history of Yacub (Jacob) is given and in Chapter II the genealogies of the Afghan tribes are further traced.
    Genealogies of the Pashtun/Pathan/Afghan tribes, right up to King Saul, are given in the second chapter of the book.

(Ref:Imamuddin, op. cit., p. 205)This is a general historical account dedicated to Khwaja Ghiyasuddin Muhammad, son and successor of Rashiduddin Fazlullah, and deals with the Mongols of Persia (modern Iran) and modern Trans-Oxiana.

    Naematullah was the first historian to present a systematic genealogical table of Pathans/Pashtuns/Afghans from Israel/Jacob. However he can’t be given credit for propounding the theory of their Israelite origin because many others have done research in this subject.His book was translated in English by Bernard Dork in 1829
    Neamatullah sent five historians, viz., Qutb Khan, Sarmast Khan Abdali, Hamza Khan, Umar Khan Kakarr and Zarif Khan, to the Afghan/Pashtun/Pathan territories in AH 1030/1621 CE to investigate the descent of Afghans.

    Naematullah writes:
    …Khaled sent a letter to the Afghans who had settled in the mountainous countries around Ghor ever since the time of the expulsion of the Israelites by Bokhtnasser, and informed them of the appearance of the last of the Prophets. When this letter reached them, several of their chiefs departed from Medina; the mightiest of them, and of the Afghan people, was Kais, whose pedigree ascends in a series of thirty-seven degrees to Talut, of forty-five to Ibrahim(Ref: Makhzan-i-Afghani (History of the Afghans) of Naematullah (1612 CE), trans. By Bernhard Dorn, Part I, Oriental Translation Committee, London, 1829, p. 37)

    Syed Jalal-ud-Din Afghani & Syed Abdul Jabar Shah, the ex-ruler of Swat (NWFP, Pakistan)

    It is worth mentioning the names of Syed Jalal-ud-Din Afghani and Syed Abdul Jabar Shah, the ex-ruler of Swat (NWFP, Pakistan), who have given genealogies of different Afghan/Pashtun/Pathan tribes right up to King Saul and conclude that the Afghans/Pashtuns/Pathans represent the Lost Tribes of Israel. Ref: Ibid., p. 17)

    THE WORD PASHTO
    Another theory is that whenever people asked the Pathans/Pashtuns/Afghans about their nationality, they replied in Hebrew phasq or phasht. Phasq means “to liberate”, “to make free”, “to split”, while phasht means “to spread”. The word Pashtun seems to have been derived from this very word. (Ref: Imamuddin, op. cit., pp. 206-207)In Hebrew, Pasht is the name of a deity and also of a city in Egypt. In the Pashto language Pastu means an inner room with just one entrance, which indicates that they might have migrated from Israel to their present mountainous country and called themselves Pusht after a village in Israel ( Ref: Ibid., p. 207) Some believe that Pathans got their name from Jonathan’s great-grandson Pithon

    THE THREE TRIBES
    According to Pashtun/Pathan/Afghan genealogies, Kish married the daughter of Khalid ibn al-Waleed, from whom he had three sons – Sarban, Bitan and Ghurgasht, Sarban in turn had two sons – Sacharj Yun and Karsh. As per the tradition, the descendants of Yun are Afghans/Pashtuns/Pathans. ( Ref: Benjamin, op. cit., p. 16)


    Risal-i-Ansab-i-Afghana.

    Fareed-ud-Din Ahmad tries to prove the Israelite descent of Pashtuns/Pathans/Afghans from King Talut in his Risal-i-Ansab-i-Afghana.

    REFRERENCES

    Tarikh-i-Hafiz Rahmatkhani, by Hafiz Muhammad Zadeek 1770 AD
    This books deal with the early history of the Afghans, their origin and wanderings in general. They particularly discuss the Yusuf Zyes (the Yusefzai, "Sons of Joseph") and their occupation of Kabul, Bajoor, Swat, and Peshawar.
    Syed Jalal-ud-Din Afghani (Tarikh-i-Afghana / History of Afghans), and Syed Abdul Jabbar Shah (Mun'ameen-i-Bani Israel, MS
    Additional authors Syed Jalal-ud-Din Afghani (Tarikh-i-Afghana / History of Afghans), and Syed Abdul Jabbar Shah (Mun'ameen-i-Bani Israel, MS.), ex-Ruler of Swat, deserve to be mentioned. Both these writers discuss the question exhaustively and come to the conclusion that the Afghans represent the Lost Tribes of Israel as viewed from the perspective of the Jewish/Western world.
    Henry Vansittart 1788
    If we turn to Anglo-Western writers during the time of the British Empire we find that they also have come to the same conclusion. The first to reach such is Henry Vansittart. In a letter which appeared in Indian Researches he commented on the Israelitis descent of the Afghans. He expressed the opinion that the claim of the Afghans to be Bani Israel are more than justified given his own observations of their indigenous traditions. [Indian Researches, 1788, Vol. 2: 69]
    William Moorcroft 1819
    William Moorcroft traveled during 1819 to 1825 through various countries adjoining India, including Afghanistan. "The Khaibarees," he says, "are tall and have a singularly Jewish cast of features." At Push Kyun, within Afghan territory, he came across a very old copy of the Old Testament in Hebrew. [Moorcroft, Travels in Himalayan Provinces of Hindustan and the Punjab; in Ladakh and Kashmir, in Peshawar, Kabul, Kunduz and Bokhara, 12]
    Sir Alexander Brunes,1835 AD
    Sir Alexander Brunes in his Travels into Bokhara, which he published in 1835, speaking of the Afghans said: "The Afghans call themselves Bani Israel, or the children of Israel, but consider the term Yahoodi, or Jew, to be one of reproach. They say that Nebuchadnezzar, after the overthrow of Israel, transplanted them into the towns of Ghore near Bamean and that they were called after their Chief Afghana... they say that they lived as Israelites till Khalid summoned them in the first century of the Mohammadans... Having precisely stated the traditions and history of the Afghans I see no good reason for discrediting them... the Afghans look like Jews and the younger brother marries the widow of the elder. The Afghans entertain strong prejudices against the Jewish nation, which would at least show that they have no desire to claim – without just cause – a descent from them. [Sir Alexander Brunes, Travels into Bokhara, Vol. 2:139-141.]
    Brunes was again in 1837 sent as the first British Envoy to the Court of Kabul. For some time he was the guest of King Dost Muhammad Khan. He questioned the King about the descent of the Afghans from the Israelites. The King replied that "his people had no doubt of that, though they repudiated the idea of being Jews".
    J.B. Frazer,1843 AD
    J.B. Frazer in his book, An Historical and Descriptive Account of Persia and Afghanistan, which he published in 1843, says: "According to their own tradition they believe themselves to be descendants from the [Hebrews]...they preserved the purity of their religion until they met with Islam." [J.B. Frazer, A Historical and Descriptive Account of Persia and Afghanistan, 298]
    J.P. Ferrier,1858
    J.P. Ferrier wrote his History of the Afghans in 1858. It was translated by Capt. W. M. Jesse. He too was disposed to believe that the Afghans represented the Ten Tribes of Israel. In support of his view he recorded, among others, a very significant fact: “When Nadir Shah marching to the conquest of India arrived at Peshawar, the chief of the tribe of Yoosoof Zyes (Sons of Joseph) presented him with a Bible written in Hebrew and several other articles that had been used in their ancient worship and which they had preserved. These articles were at once recognized by the Jews who followed the camp.” – J.P. Ferrier, History of the Afghans, 4.
    The Lost Tribes  by  George Moore 1861 AD
    George Moore published his famous work The Lost Tribes in 1861. He gave numerous facts to prove that these tribes are traceable to the Afghans. After giving details of the character of the wandering Israelites, he said: "And we find that the very natural character of Israel reappear in all its life and reality in countries where people call themselves Bani Israel and universally claim to be the descendants of the Lost Tribes. The nomenclature of their tribes and districts, both in ancient Geography, and at the present day, confirms this universal natural tradition. Lastly, we have the route of the Israelites from Media to Afghanistan and India marked by a series of intermediate stations bearing the names of several of the tribes and clearly indicating the stages of their long and arduous journey." [George Moore, The Lost Tribes]
    Moore goes on to say: "Sir William Jones, Sir John Malcolm and the missing Chamberlain, after full investigation, were of the opinion that the Ten Tribes migrated to India, Tibet, and Cashemire [Kashmir] through Afghanistan." [[George Moore, The Lost Tribes]
    Moore has mentioned only three eminent writers on the subject. But reference can also be made to General Sir George Macmunn (Afghanistan from Darius to Amanullah, 215), Col. [G.B. Malleson (The History of Afghanistan from the Earliest Period to the outbreak of the War of 1878, 39), Col. Failson, (History of Afghanistan, 49), George Bell (Tribes of Afghanistan, 15), E. Balfour (Encyclopedia of India, article on Afghanistan), Sir Henry Yule (Encyclopedia Britannica, article on Afghanistan), and the Hon. Sir George Rose (Rose, The Afghans, the Ten Tribes and the Kings of the East, 26). They, one and all, independently came to the same conclusion. Another, Major H.W. Bellew, went on a political mission to Kandahar and published his impressions in his Journal of a Mission to Kandahar, 1857-8. He then wrote in 1879 his book Afghanistan and Afghans. In 1880 he was sent, once again on another mission to Kabul, and in the same year he delivered two lectures before the United Services Institute at Simla: "A New Afghan Question, or "Are the Afghans Israelites?" and "Who are the Afghans?" He then published another book: The Races of Afghanistan. Finally he collected all his facts in An Enquiry into the Ethnography of Afghanistan, which was published in 1891.
    An Enquiry into the Ethnography of Afghanistan by H.W. Bellew
    In this work he mentions Killa Yahoodi ("Fort of the Jews") (H.W. Bellew, An Enquiry into the Ethnography of Afghanistan, 34), as being the name of the eastern boundary of their country, and also speaks of Dasht-i-Yahoodi ("Jewish plain") (ibid., 4), a place in Mardan District. He concludes: "The Afghan’s accounts of Jacob and Esau, of Moses and the Exodus, of the Wars of the Israelites with the Amalekites and conquest of Palestine, of the Ark of the Covenant and of the election of Saul to the Kingdom, etc., etc., are clearly founded on the Biblical records, and clearly indicate a knowledge of the Old Testament, which if it does not prove the presence of the Christians at least corroborates their assertion that the Afghans were readers of the Pentateuch up to the time of the appearance of Mohammad." (Ibid., 191)
    Note, it is well understood and undisputed that there have never been Christian communities in Afghanistan pre- or for many centuries after the dawn of Islam.
    Thomas Ledlie, More Ledlian, Calcutta Review, January, 1898
    Thomas Ledlie wrote an article in the Calcutta Review, which he subsequently elaborated and published in two volumes. He expressed his views on the subject very clearly: "The Europeans always confuse things, when they consider the fact that the Afghans call themselves Bani Israel and yet reject their Jewish descent. Indeed, the Afghans discard the very idea of any descent from the Jews. They, however, yet claim themselves to be of Bani Israel." [Thomas Ledlie, More Ledlian, Calcutta Review, January, 1898]
    Ledlie goes on to explain: "Israelites, or the Ten Tribes, to whom the term Israel was applied – after their separation from the House of David, and the tribe of Judah, which tribe retained the name of Judah and had a distinct history ever after. These last alone are called Jews and are distinguished from the Bani Israel as much in the East as in the West." [Ibid., 7]
    Dr. Alfred Edersheim, The Life and Times of Jesus, the Messiah
    Among more contemporary writers Dr. Alfred Edersheim says: "Modern investigations have pointed to the Nestorians and latterly, with almost convincing evidence (so far as it is possible) to the Afghans as descendants from the Lost Tribes." [Dr. Alfred Edersheim, The Life and Times of Jesus, the Messiah, 15]
    The Gates of India  by Sir Thomas Holditch
    Sir Thomas Holditch in his The Gates of India says: "But there is one important people (of whom there is much more to be said) who call themselves Bani Israel, who claim a descent from Cush and Ham, who have adopted a strange mixture of Mosaic Law in Ordinances in their moral code, who (some sections at least) keep a feast which strongly accords with the Passover,...and for whom no one has yet been able to suggest any other origin than the one they claim, and claim with determined force, and these people are the overwhelming inhabitants of Afghanistan." – Sir Thomas Holditch, The Gates of India, 49.
    There are many additional references, recorded incidents, manuscripts and artifacts related to the Hebraic history of the Pashtuns for the dedicated objective researcher who seeks them out.
    The Exiled and the Redeemed,1957 Itzhak Ben-Zvi (2nd President of Israel)
    In his 1957 classic The Exiled and the Redeemed, Itzhak Ben-Zvi, second President of Israel, writes that Hebrew migrations into Afghanistan began, "with a sprinkling of exiles from Samaria who had been transplanted there by Shalmaneser, King of Assyria (719 BC). From the recurrent references in the Book of Esther to the "one hundred and twenty seven dominions" of King Ahasuerus, the deduction is permissible that eastern Afghanistan was among them." [[The Exiled and the Redeemed, 176]
    Ben-Zvi continues, "The Afghan tribes, among whom the Jews have lived for generations, are Moslems who retain to this day their amazing tradition about their descent from the Ten Tribes. It is an ancient tradition, and one not without some historical plausibility. A number of explorers, Jewish and non-Jewish, who visited Afghanistan from time to time, and students of Afghan affairs who probed into literary sources, have referred to this tradition, which was also discussed in several encyclopedias in European languages. The fact that this tradition, and no other, has persisted among these tribes is itself a weighty consideration. Nations normally keep alive memories passed by word of mouth from generation to generation, and much of their history is based not on written records but on verbal tradition. This was particulary so in the case of the nations and the communities of the Levant. The people of the Arabian Peninsula, for example, derived all their knowledge of an original pagan cult, which they abandoned in favor of Islam, from such verbal tradition. So did the people of Iran, formerly worshipers of the religion of Zoroaster; the Turkish and Mongol tribes, formerly Buddhists and Shamanists; and the Syrians who abandoned Christianity in favor of Islam. Therefore, if the Afghan tribes persistently adhere to the tradition that they were once Hebrews and in course of time embraced Islam, and there is not an alternative tradition also existent among them, the matter certainly deserves careful and critical examination." [The Exiled and the Redeemed]
     [New York Times Magazine, 42, Aug. 25, 2002]
    The claim of Afghans to be the Bani Israel (Children of Israel) is not founded on oral tradition alone. It is supported by ancient monuments, old inscriptions, manuscripts, and historical works, many in the public domain, and many others in private collections. Of recent report is the 12th century Hebrew cemetery a mile and a half from the base of the Tower of Jam in the middle of a very desolate region of Western Afghanistan. [New York Times Magazine, 42, Aug. 25, 2002]
    International Encyclopaedia of Islamic Dynasties
    Ancient tradition of Pashtun tribes is described in International Encyclopaedia of Islamic Dynasties .It written that there is a tribal tradition that the Pashtuns originated in Israel in the days of King Saul, from whom they claim descent through a son, Irmia (Jeremiah), and a grandson, Afghana, from whom the name Afghanistan is derived, with its inhabitants called Afghans. Pashtuns/Pathans/Afghans maintain that they grew great in Israel, where they were favourites of Daud (David) and Sulaiman (Solomon); and where the latter assigned them to guard the temple from the assaults of jealous demons. To aid them in this task, Sulaiman (Solomon), master of djins and afreets, taught the Afghans/Pashtuns/Pathans the language of hell. At this time there appeared a wicked magician, Bukht-ud-Nasir (Nebuchadnezzar), who scattered the tribes of Israel and sent the Afghans, as the most obstreperous, far to the east, to the land of Sham or Syria. From there they migrated to the mountains of Ghor in western Afghanistan, and settled down, adhering to monotheism, although surrounded by countless idolaters and polytheists. As the legend goes, in the time of Muhammad, an Afghan/Pashtun/Pathan, Qais or Kish, visited Mecca and embraced Islam, receiving the name Abdul Rasheed. He returned to Afghanistan to convert his people, and all the Pashtuns/Pathans/Afghans are the progeny of his two sons, Sarban and Ghurghusht, and daughter Bibi Matto. (Ref: Singh, Nagendra K., ed., International Encyclopaedia of Islamic Dynasties, Vol. I, Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, 2000, p. 35)
      
    THREE NAMES OF SAME RACE WITH DIFFERENT MEANINGS
     Another theory is that whenever people asked the Pathans/Pashtuns/Afghans about their nationality, they replied in Hebrew phasq or phasht. Phasq means “to liberate”, “to make free”, “to split”, while phasht means “to spread”. The word Pashtun seems to have been derived from this very word. (Ref:Imamuddin, op. cit., pp. 206-207)In Hebrew, Pasht is the name of a deity and also of a city in Egypt. In the Pashto language Pastu means an inner room with just one entrance, which indicates that they might have migrated from Israel to their present mountainous country and called themselves Pusht after a village in Israel. (Ref:Ibid., p. 207)Some believe that Pathans got their name from Jonathan’s great-grandson Pithon

    Pathans, Pashtuns, Pakhtuns and Afghans are names which are often used interchangeably. There is nothing wrong in this usage, but each name has its own meaning. Those who inhabit plains and plateaus are entitled to the name Afghan, which has a far wider connotation than just being a subject of the modern state of Afghanistan, founded only in 1747. The northern highlanders call themselves Pakhtuns, while the southern highlanders are known as Pashtuns. The appellation Pathan is the Indian variant of Pakhtanah, the plural of Pakhtun
    "The Corrigendum of an Historic Fact" by The Nawab of Hoti, Sir Akbar Khan
    The Nawab of Hoti, Sir Akbar Khan, writes in his famous book "The Corrigendum of an Historic Fact" that in 570 BC, the King of Babul Bukht Nasir ordered the two grandsons of Afghana, Armia and Burkhia, to settle the Bin Yamin tribes in his kingdom. Hence they brought their old grandfather to the hills of Herat and started living there
