assalamlaikum.. ISS HADITH (BELOW)KAUN LOG/MULK/COUNTRY MURAD HAI? JARA TAFSEEER SE BATAYE Narrated with sound chains from Dhu Mikhbar al-Najashi: ” You will make a firm truce with the Romans (al-Rum) until you and they wage a campaign against an enemy that is attacking them. You will be granted victory and great spoils. Then you will alight in a plain surrounded by hills. There, someone among the Romans shall say: ‘The Cross has overcome!’ whereupon someone among the Muslims shall say: ‘Nay, Allah has overcome!’ and shall go and break the cross. The Romans shall kill him, then the Muslims shall take up their arms and the two sides shall fall upon each other. Allah shall grant martyrdom to that group of Muslims. After that the Romans shall say to their leader: ‘We shall relieve you of the Arabs,’ and they shall gather up for the great battle. They shall come to you under eighty flags (nations), each flag (nation) gathering 12,000 troops.” (Abu Dawud, Kitab al-Jihad – Vol. 3/7 – No. 2479, Ahmad, Ibn Majah)


(Fatwa: 685/500=L/1430)

Muslims will have peace with the Christian of Rome. And, the frontiers of Rome at the time of the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) extended up to Turkistan in the northeast, Syria and Alexandria in south, the sea and Spain in west, while their central place was Antioch. This incident refers to the last days:

وأما حدود الشام فمشارقھم وشمالھم الترک، وجنوبھم الشام والاسکندریۃ ومغاربھم البحر والأندلس ۔۔۔ وکانت دارالملک أنطاکیۃ (بذل المجھود 5:104) وفي موضع آخر: فسأل جبیر عن الھدنۃ أي الصلح الذي یقع بین المسلمین والنصاری في آخر الزمان (ایضاً 4:60)
