The story of Muhammad bin Qasim's invasion of Sindh is one of the romances of history.
Imád-uddín Muhammad bin Qasim bin Yusuf Sakifi was an Umayyad general who conquered the Sindh and Punjab regions along the Indus river at the age of seventeen on 10th Ramadan. He was born in the city of Taif. The conquest of Sindh and Punjab began the Islamic era in South Asia and continues to lend the Sindh province of Pakistan the nickname Bab-e-Islam (The Gateway of Islam).
At the age of seventeen, he was sent by Caliph Al-Walid I on the recommendation of Hajjaj to lead an army towards South Asia into what are today the Sindh and Punjab regions of Pakistan.
Dr.Ishwari Prasad wrote in his book
Buoyed up with great expectations that were formed of him on account of his youthful and warlike spirit, this gallant prince started on his Indian expedition, well-accoutred, with 6000 picked Syrian and Iraqian warrior sent by hajjaj , with an equal number of armed camel-riders and a baggage train of 3,000 Bactrian camels.
Muhammad bin Qasim form one of the most brilliant chapters in the history of the Muslim rulers of Indo-Pakistan. He was a born leader and a man of versatile genius. He was a poet, a patriot, a statesman and an accomplished administrator. His tender age, impressive figure, his dauntless courage and noble bravery, his brilliant victories in battles and wise method of administration and lastly his sudden and tragic end make the story of his short and illustrious life one of the romances of history. He was strong against opponents and tender-hearted to his friends.
According to al-Marzubani,
Muhammad bin Qasim was one of the great men of all times.

    Hello and welcome Back Bro....
    Good to see u here...
    Initially I was astonished to see your comments, but when I went through some of my past posts then It reminds me of the young voluble guy from Murray College, Sialkot…
    I also came to realize of late that life is not a bed of roses; it is somewhat like a tough test….khair Zindagi isi ka hi naam hai…
    Life goes on so it is going on…
    Aur likhne wale lawazmat wo bhi itne sare aik sath mayasar hona both mushkil hai,,lakin aik kohbsorat idea hai ,,I really like it. Mujhe lagta hai bro both jald app ka bi koi novel ana wala hai,,wese bhi siakot zarkhaiz zameen hai….Why don’t u write on the blog ?
    I m not working, but I will.

    Well, may be sometimes we perceive sadness and pessimism…
    But I can differentiate because I experienced both; I have seen sadness in tangible…..
    Yes, life tests and then teaches, so it is teaching …Sadness and happiness both tempt you to write and share….khud se milney wali baat tu theek he hai that why bacon said ”writing make a full man”

    About your edi, well, I will try to give it a read,. I once read lagan by Razia butt. There must be something special in “Bano”. Of late I bought a book of m.muft by the name talash,,it was good. Then I read war and peace by tolosty, it was amazing book,

    About u writing, urdu aur englsih wala hal tu sab ka aik jaisa hai,courtesy out education system and our ruling class colonial mindset .and you can write on the blog inconsistently and then other will learn from you .i believe everyone has something to teach.
    It happens with every one, sometimes time when I go back and read my past posts, my own words seems strange to me. yup, only permanent thing in life is change.
