"Two groups amongst My Ummah would be such, to whom Allah has freed from fire; One group would attack Hind & the Second would be that who would accompany Isa Ibn-e-Maryam (A.S.)."
Al-Hasan (RA) related that Abu Hurairah (RA) said, "My Khaleel and the truthful one, The Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, 'From this Nation there will be an expedition to Sindh and India.' If I reach that time and if I become martyred, then that is fine; and if I return, then I am Abu Hurairah the saved: He will have freed me from the Fire." (Ahmad)
And in another narration Abu Hurairah (RA) said, "The Messenger of Allah (SAW), promised the invasion of India. If I become martyred, I will be from the best of the martyred; and if I return, I am Abu Hurairah, the saved." (Ahmad) - An-Nasaaee related it as well from Sayaar ibn Jaabir, who heard it being imputed to Abu Hurairah (RA).
"Some people of My Ummah will fight with Hindustan, Allah would grant them with success, even they would find the Indian kings being trapped in fetters. Allah would forgive those Warriors. When they would move towards Syria, then would find Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) over there".
'Surely, your one troop would fight with Hindustan & Allah would Bless those Warriors(Mujahid) with success, that they would bring the leaders of Sindh in fetters, Allah would forgive the Warriors. Then, when they would return, they would find Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) in Syria".
Hazrat Abu Hurairah(R.A.) spoke:
'If I get that Ghazwa, then would participate in it by selling all my old & new goods. When Allah would give us success, then we would come back & I would be a freed Abu Hurairah, who would come in Syria and would meet Hazrat Isa Ibn-e-Maryam(A.S.) there. O Allah's Messenger (P.B.U.H.) ! that time, I would be in a deep desire to tell him by going close to him that I have the honour of having the company of Muhammad(P.B.U.H.).
The narrator tells that: Muhammad S.A.W. smiles by listening this.
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) told that 'if I could find that Ghazwa, then would sell all my new & old goods and would participate in it. When Allah (S.W.T.) granted us success & we returned, then I would be a free Abu Hurairah; who would come in the country of Syria with such a pride of finding Hazrat Isa (A.S.) over there. O Muhammad(P.B.U.H.) ! that time it would be my intense wish that by coming closer to Hazrat Isa(A.S.), I may tell him that I am the Sahabi of Muhammad(P.B.U.H.).
The narrator tells that Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) smiled & said: 'very difficult, very difficult'.
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) says that my intimate friend Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) told me that:
" In this Ummah, the troops would be headed towards Sindh & Hind"
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) says that if I could find a chance to participate in any of such movement & (while participating in it) I get martyred, then well & good; if I came back as a survived warrior, then I would be a free Abu Hurairah, to whom Allah Almighty would have given freedom from the Hell."
