Genealogy of Pakhtoons
Pakhtoons are Israel
There are different theories about Pakhtoons, but all those theories are useless. Why? I think it is because those theories has very weak basis. And the most specific point in those theories is that every one has wrote their theories without their elders sayings. And they have wrote their theories only to get an international reputation. But they have not thought of their nation. For example Mr. Bahadur Shah Zafar Kaka Khel says that Pakhtoons are Aryans. But he had not thought about it that Arya was the name of a civilization not the name of a nation. There were different nations living in that period and in those areas. So may be in those days Pakhtoon would also present. But he however tell us some names of Pakhtoons tribes that are found in the oldest book of Hindus. Once again he fails in his mission and he cannot compare our tribes name totally. He also claim that the name Paktia a province of Afghanistan is found in the oldest book of Hindus and then he say that because this name is found in the book of Hindus therefore Pakhtoons are Aryan. But he again do not think that it is not enough to find a name in a book but it is also necessary to prove it four dimensionally. For example our elders sayings and history books etc. And it is not a new thing that this name is found in Hindu's book. I have hundreds of names that are related to Hindus and are the name of some places in Pukhtoonistan. But it does not mean that Pakhtoon are Aryan or Hindus. I think Mr. Bhadur Shah had not studied about the history of Pakhtoons. Because of he would have studied it then he would not use such weak words for Pakhtoons. Actuallly Pakhtoons have conquered these areas and have excluded Hindus from these areas where now they are living. Therefore the names of different places are given by Hindus and yet they are called by those names. However some of the names of those places are changed to Muslim and Pakhto names. Actually we do know that our elders say that we are Israel and we have not ever heard from our elders that we are Aryan. Then how can one say that Pakhtoon are Aryan. However if one can say it, then can he tell us that what is the genealogical tree of Pakhtoons which is linked to Aryan? Offcourse it is very difficult to show and yet no one has shown it to the world. And if some one ask us about our theory of Israel and ask us about the genealogical tree of Pakhtoons, we can answer them with blind eyes and can prove it. We have some of our tribe's names that are found in Syria in their original names and still those places are present. For example SHALMAN is the name of an area in northern Syria and still is present in Syria. And then the residents of Shalman are called Shalmani. And it is clear that from this name that Pakhtoons are Israel. Because Israel were exiled from Syria to Iran and Khorasan. And therefore it is a proof that these Shalmani are still present in Iran and in Khorasan which is the old name of Afghanistan. Now a days one can believe it that there are some Shalmani scientist in Iran and if some one want to know about it he should type the name Shalmani in Google search engine and he will get a lot of information on Shalmani. And then these Shalmani are also present in Pakhtoonistan in different places, for example in Swat state they were brought by Shahabuddin Mohammad Ghouri where they fought with Hindus and excluded them to southern India. Now shalmani are found in swat valley. So this was the only one proof to show that Pakhtoons are from Syria. There are many other solid proofs about it and we shall include all of them very soon in this web site. So please for now please be content with this little bit history and wait for more information also.
Explanation of Israeli Concept of Pakhtuns
Ibrahim Alai Salam:-
We will begin the history of pakhtuns from the prophet Abrahim. He was born in Ur (oor) city of the current Iraq. The name of this city was Ur because the people of this city were worshiping fire in those days, and in those days there was a famous furnace in this city. The people of this city were busy in the worship of fire. Now the word Ur belong to the language Ibrani which was the language of those people. And the meaning of this name is fire. In pushto it is called as Ur which mean fire and we know that pushto belong to this language of Ibrahim. Ok till now we discussed some thing about the word Ur and now we would like to go forth in our discussion. This city Ur is situated in the southern Iraq in the south west of Bughdad at a distance of 230 mile. Hazrat Ibrahim was born in 2160 B.C. He was the son of Tarih bin Nahur bin Saroj bin RaAo bin Filij bin Abar. Hazrat Ibrahim had two brothers also, whose names were Nahur and Haran. Hazrat Loot Alai Salaam was the son of Haran.
Hazrat Ibrahim had three wives in total, Sarah, Hajra and Qatoora. Hazrat Sarah gave birth to Hazrat Ishaaq Alai Salaam who was the second son of Ibrahim and when Ishaaq alai salam was born the age of hazrat ismaeel was 14 years and the age of Ibrahim was 100 years.The descendants of Ishaaq are known as Bani Ishaaq and it is to be noted in mind that pakhtuns or pakhtoons are the descendants of Yaqoob alai salam who was the son of this Ishaaq Alai Salam. The second wife Hajra gave birth to Hazrat Ismaeel and the descendants of Ismaeel are known as Bani Ismaeel. Hajra was the daughter of Pharaoh of Egypt who was the resident of Iraq but was settled in Egypt and became the king of Egypt. The third wife Qatoora gave birth to six sons, isbaq, madan, zamran, sokh, madayan and yaqshan and the descendants of Qatoora are known as Bani Qatoora. Then Yaqshan had two sons shiba and dodan or dodal. Hazrat Ibrahim passed some of his life in Iraq and then he went to Syria with his wife Hazrat Sara and his nephew hazrat Loot. Hazrat Ibrahim died at the age of 175 years in Syria. He was buried in the land of Afran who was the son of Sahar in Kinaan. This land was bought by hazrat Ibrahim for this purpose. Similarly hazrat Sara, hazrat Yaqoob, Hazrat Yosuf and Hazrat Ishaaq were also buried here with Hazrat Ibrahim in this land. This place is now known as baithullahm or khalil. And at this place hazrat Isaa Alai Salam were also born.
Now we would like to extend the story of hazrat Ishaaq alai salam and Hazrat Yaqoob Alai Salam, because pakhtoons are the descendants of Ishaaq Alai Salam and Hazrat Yaqoob Alai Salam.
Hazrat Ishaaq Alai Salam and Hazrat Yaqoob Alai Salam :-
He is also called as Izhaaq or Zahaaq. He married Rabaqa who was the daughter of Baith Waeel. Baith Waeel was the son of Nahur and Nahur was the brother of Hazrat Ibrahim. Hazrat Ishaaq had two sons from Rabaqa. The two sons were Eisoo and Hazrat Yaqoob Alai Salam. Because Hazrat Yaqoob was born in Syria, so he was called by his son Hazrat Yosuf Alai Salam from Syria to Egypt and he lived for 430 years in Egypt. After 430 years he was again called by Hazrat Musa Alai Salam (Moses). Then hazrat ishaaq alai salam died at the age of 180 years and was buried beside the grave of Ibrahim. <br>
Hazrat Yaqoob Alai Salam :- The descendants of Yaqoob Alai Salam are known as Bani Israel and we Pakhtoons have heard from our elders that we are Bani Israel in origin. We have not only heard it but we have also our genealogical records (shajara-e-nasab). Hazrat Yaqoob was also known as Israel. This name was given to him by the God and the meaning of Israel is “the traveler at the night time”. It is because he had left Syria at night time as his brother Eisoo was in search of his death because of some reason. Then in after he had came back to Syria as his brother Eisoo was very sad about him. His father Hazrat Ishaaq Alai Salam sent him to Iraq where he married the daughter of Labin. Labin was the brother of Rabaqa. The Labin’s daughter’s name was Layya. Hazrat Yaqoob married with Layya and a girl or lass given with Layya also. So Yaqoob had now two wives one was Layya and other was a girl given with Layya by her father, the name of he girl was Zulfa. Then Labin gave his other daughter to hazrat yaqoob and another girl also. The name of the second daughter was Rahel and the name of the girl given with Rahel was Balha. Therefore Hazrat Yaqoob had four wives in total, Layya, Zulfa, Rahel and Balha.
Hazrat Yaqoob had twelve sons whose explanation is given as follows.
From Layya he had four sons: Yahuda, Ladi, Robin and Shamoon.
From Zulfa he had four sons: Zaboloon, Yasakar, Aashar and Jid.
From Rahel he had two sons: Yosuf and Bin Yamin.
From Balha he had two sons: Dan and Naftali
In the period of famine (failure of the harvest) Hazrat Yaqoob was called by his son Hazrat Yosuf Alai Salam to Egypt. When he went to Egypt his age was 130 years. He lived there for about 17 years and died at the age of 147 years in Egypt. He was also brought to Syria Kinaan according to his sayings and buried there with his father Hazrat Ishaaq and grand father Hazrat Ibrahim. Then Hazrat Yosuf was also died at the age of 110 years and according to his sayings he was also brought to Syria and was buried with his ancestors.
Hazrat Musa Alai Salam :- After Yosuf Alai Salam the life of Bani Israel was not passing good in the Egypt and in the period of Musa Alai Salam, Bani Israel were brought to Syria. However Pharaoh (Firoun) tried to stop them but they got the way in the river of Neil and Pharaoh drown in the river. Musa brought his nation Israel to Elum and they stayed beside the mountain of Toor. Then God ordered them to go to Palestine where the Amaliqa nation was living in Palestine. Because God had ordered them to conquer Palestine and they could not conquered Palestine, so God became sad and ordered them to live in the desert of Sina for about 40 years.
Bani Israel and their ascension (rising) :- When Israel conquered Palestine and the other nearest areas they divided it in their tribes according to the sayings of Musa Alai Salam. The areas they were conquered was ruling by 31 kings. Israel ruled on that areas for about 1400 years successively. They had about 70 sardars (head of the region) who were ruling their related areas for more than 400 years. In after when the situation became dangerous they selected Hazrat Taloot as their king and he killed Jaloot the king of Palestine. Hazrat Taloot ruled for about 47 years and then he died. After him Hazrat Dawood Alai Salam became the king of Israel. He ruled for about 40 years and then died. After him Hazrat Solomon Alai Salam became the king of Israel. He ruled for about 52 years and then died.
Decline (setting) of Bani Israel: When Solomon Alai Salam died, Bani Israel decided to make their new king for them. For this purpose they decided to select the son of Hazrat Solomon, Rajaam as their king. Israel were twelve tribes in total and ten of them became worry from Rajaam because of some reason. Therefore the ten tribes decided to make their own king and state. They made Yarbaam as their king and he was also the son of Solomon. The name of their state was Israelia and their king was Yarbaam. The two tribes made their own state “Yahudia” and their king was Rajaam. When they divided their state in two states they became weak and from that day their destruction began. They were quarrelling among each other and were killing each other. During many prohets were sent by Allah to them but they were not obeying them and the God. Hazrat musa alai salam had told them that God says that I like Israel very much and I will give them kingdom and every thing they want. But if they did not obeyed me and left worshiping me, I will destroy them.
We do know that when they started quarrelling among them, they became weak and weak, and the other nations like Asyrian and Babil crashed them. When these nations attacked Syria they exiled the Israel from their homeland and it was the time when the came out of Syria. They were brought by the enemies to Khorasan in Iran and settled them there in Iran and some were settled in other areas too.
Exile of Israel from Syria: The first attack was of Asyrian nation on Israel. The Asyrian king Pal attacked them in 771 B.C and exiled them from Syria. This attack was on Israelia state of Israel. Please note that Syria and Asyria are two different names, where Syria is the name of the country where Israel were living and it is the present Syria (Sham) of the middle east and the Asyria was a nation in the time of Israel. This nation was living in an area beside Israel. When Asyrian knew that Israel are weak, they attacked them and exiled them. So when the Asyrian king attacked Syria he exiled them toward east of Syria to Iran Khorasan. In this exile of two tribes were namely Robin and Jad. Another Asyrian king Shalman II was very dangerous king and he also attacked Israelia in 761 B.C and exiled other tribes of Israel. Please note that there were about four kings of Asyrian whose names were Shalman I, Shalman II, Shalman III and Shalman IV, all of them very cruel and dangerous. Similarly Shalman II also attacked the state of Yahudia and exiled Israel tribes to Iran. After the Asyrian nation another nation appeared and there king was Bakht Nasar. He attacked Yahudia state in 597 B.C and exiled Israel toward east.
The nation of Israel ruled over Syria for about 1400 years and their kingdom ended after their exile from Syria. In this battle thousands and hundreds thousands of people were killed from the Israel side. As there were twelve tribes of Israel in the two states Israelia and Yahudia. Ten tribes were in Israelia and two were in Yahudia. So in the battle ten tribes were exiled from the two states, and the remaining two tribes were arrested by the enemies. It should also be noted that there were some smaller tribes which were made from one particular tribe. So each of these twelve tribes had their smaller branches of tribes, because the twelve tribes were from the twelve sons of Hazrat Yaqoob(Jacob). And therefore after hundreds of years there were many branches made from them. Now it should be also cleared that all these tribes were not only exiled to Iran and Khorasan (the present Afghanistan) but some of their tribes men were also exiled in different directions of Syria i.e in four dimensions. That is why we see today that Israel are present in every corner of the world. Some of these Israel are collected from different parts of the world by the present Israel and are settled in the present state of Israel. But some of them are Muslims and they don’t want to go there.
Note: As we know that Israel were exiled to Iran and Khorasan (Afghanistan), so from here the History
Of Pakhtuns begins. Because before this they were known as Israel as whole. However still the Pakhtun nation call themselves as Israel and still there are many tribes whose names are matching to those of the ancient tribes’ names. But it will be explained in later and now let us start the following to get the real ideology and theory.
Pakhtun (Pakhtun, Pakhtoon, Pakhtan, Pathan, Batan, Pashtun or Pashtan): According to the above story we came to know that the ten tribes were exiled to Iran and Khorasan (Afghanistan). So in these tribes one tribe was Bani Pakht or Bani Pukht. It was a smaller tribe of the tribe Yahuda or Yehuda. When Israel exiled from Syria to Iran and Khorasan at first, the Bani Pakht tribe was also present and they had came here before the other Israel. Because Bani Pakht was the famous and politically strong tribe therefore all the Israel were known by this tribe’s name. And then the name Pakht was used for all the Israel. And, then they were called as Pakhtan, Pakhton or Pakhtun by Persian in every part of Iran and Khorasan. Please wait for more history
Who are Pakhtoons
It is evident from the history of Pakhtoons and from the sayings of our elders that Pakhtoons are sons of Israel. But the real question that comes into one's mind, is that how they are the sons of Israel or Yaaqoob Alaisalam. Therefore at first I would like to show here the genealogical tree of Pakhtoons which is traced back to Hazrat Yaaqoob Alaisalam, Hazrat Ibrahim Alaisalam, Hazrat Noah Alaisalam and Hazrat Adam Alaisalam. But first of all, please note that what is the meaning of the word Israel in common and the word genealogical tree in Pashto or Pakhto. So Israel is the second name of Hazrat Yaaqoob Alaisalam, and genealogical tree means Shajara-e-Nasab in Pashto or Pakhto. Now we present the genealogical tree of Pakhtoons and traces it back not only to Hazrat Yaqoob but to Hazrat Adam Alaisalam who is the grand father of humans. The genealogical tree of Israel or Yaaqoob Alaisalam is : Yaqoob bin Is-Haq(Isaac) bin Ibrahim(Abraham) bin Tarih(Azar) bin Nahor bin Saroj bin RaAo bin Filij bin Ibar bin Shalah bin Arfikshad Bin Sam bin Noah bin Lamek bin Matoslih bin Edris bin Yared bin Mehlael bin Qenan bin Anosh bin Sheas(Seth) bin Adam. Now we begin our story from Yaqoob Alaisalam or Israel Alaisalam. So we know from history books that Yaqoob had twelve sons. He had four wives, Layya, Zulfa, Rahel and Balha. His 12 sons were from these four wives. Where Robin, Shamon, Ladi and Yahuda were from Layya. Jad, Ashar, Ashkar(Yasakar) and Zabolon(Roel) were from Zulfa. Yousaf and Binyamin were from Rahel. Dan and Nuftali were from Balha. Each of these twelve sons yielded their own sons and therefore every son's name became as a tribe name also. For example Binyamin etc. They are also called twelve tribes of Israel or bani Israel. In the period of Assyrians and Babylonians ten tribes were exiled from Syria and two were captured by Assyrian kings. These ten tribes were exiled to Iran and Khorasan. It must be noted in mind that with the passage of time each tribe had sub-tribes also. And then each sub-tribe had it's own name with respect to their ancestor name or their area name. That is why we see number of tribes in Pakhtoons now a day.
