Learning from the Conquest of the Indian Subcontinent

BY ABID SAIED This article has been reproduced from Khilafah Magazine September 2001. Whenever the history of the Indian Subcontinent is discussed, it is hard not to mention Muhammad bin Qasim who destroyed the Sindi forces in order to spread the Islamic rule in that region. However, many forget to mention why the Khalifah sent him and whether the mission was unique or one that was being repeated across the globe. This article will paint the bigger picture of Islamic history in the Indian Subcontinent.
