Hazrat Zulqarnain: A Quranic Hero Who Travelled the World
Hazrat Zulqarnain is a mysterious figure mentioned in the Quran, Surah Al-Kahf (18), verses 83-101. He is described as a righteous king who travelled to the east and west of the earth and built a barrier to protect a people from the evil of Gog and Magog. His name means "He of the Two Horns" and he is variously identified by Muslim scholars and historians as Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great, or a South-Arabian Himyarite king.
In this article, we will explore some of the stories and legends about Hazrat Zulqarnain in Urdu, based on the Quranic verses and other sources.
His Journey to the West
The Quran tells us that Hazrat Zulqarnain was given power and authority by Allah in the land and he followed a road until he reached the setting place of the sun. There he found it setting in a muddy spring and he saw a people near it. Allah gave him the choice to either punish them or treat them kindly. He said:
"As for him who doeth wrong, we shall punish him, and then he will be brought back unto his Lord, who will punish him with awful punishment! But as for him who believeth and doeth right, good will be his reward, and We shall speak unto him a mild command." (18:87-88)
According to some commentators, the people he met were disbelievers who worshipped the sun. Hazrat Zulqarnain decided to punish them for their idolatry and oppression. He also taught them about Allah and His signs. Some of them accepted his message and became believers, while others persisted in their disbelief.
His Journey to the East
Then Hazrat Zulqarnain travelled to another road until he reached the rising place of the sun. There he found it rising on a people for whom Allah had provided no shelter from it. He said:
"Thus (it was). And We knew all concerning him." (18:91)
Some commentators say that these people were very poor and weak, living in a desert without any shade or protection from the sun. Hazrat Zulqarnain felt pity for them and did not harm them or interfere with their affairs. He also praised Allah for His knowledge and power over everything.
His Journey to the North
Finally, Hazrat Zulqarnain travelled to another road until he reached a place between two mountains. There he found a people who could hardly understand his speech. They said to him:
"O Dhu'l-Qarneyn! Lo! Gog and Magog are spoiling the land. So may we pay thee tribute on condition that thou set a barrier between us and them" (18:94)
Gog and Magog are two evil tribes who will emerge at the end of times and cause corruption and destruction on earth. They are mentioned in other places in the Quran and in many hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Hazrat Zulqarnain agreed to help them build a barrier with iron and copper, which he melted with fire. He said:
"This is a mercy from my Lord; but when the promise of my Lord cometh to pass, He will lay it low, for the promise of my Lord is true." (18:98)
He also warned them that only Allah can protect them from Gog and Magog, and that they should not rely on the barrier alone. He said:
"And on that day we shall let some of them surge against others, and the Trumpet will be blown. Then We shall gather them together in one gathering." (18:99)
This is a prophecy about the Day of Resurrection, when Gog and Magog will be released from behind the barrier and will cause havoc on earth. They will be among the signs of the Hour, along with other major events such as the appearance of Dajjal (the Antichrist), Isa (Jesus 248dff8e21
