Question # : 6546


Assalamo Alikum mufti sahib ! My question is whether there is any tradition that Holy Prophet (PBUH) felt breeze from India. Allama Iqbal has said something like that in his poetry; "MEERE ARAB TO AYE THANDI HAWA JAHAN SE MERE WATAN WOHI HAI." Any tradition saying this. Sorry for too many questions in last two days. Waiting for the answer.

We could not find this Hadith, may be it is somewhere. But, it is surely known that the virtue of India has been mentioned in the traditions of the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم). There is one Hadith saying that Hazrat Adam (علیہ السلام) was sent down to India, he was accompanied with the breeze of paradise, it is the same breeze which blows in the valleys and trees. The referred words are in poetic form which contains indications and figuration. In order to understand it you must refer to the poetry of Allama Iqbal with its commentary.
