Origin of the Dhund Abbasi

The Dhund Abbasi came to ancient Pakistan from Egypt, as traders and merchants in commodities like fabrics, perfumes and diamonds. Envoys and traders of the Abbasids came to Taxila, ancient Pakistan, where they constructed a mosque and started preaching Islam by the order of Caliph Harun al-Rashid around 844 CE. An Abbasi scholar, Abu Fadhal, taught a Kashmiri King Onti Vermon in 882, and he translated the Quran into Hindi. This was the first translation of the Quran into an Indian language. In 1025 CE, Raja Mall of Jhelum, embraced Islam by Mahmud Ghazni and constructed a fort at Malot, Malpur near Islamabad in present day Pakistan administered Kashmir. He died inJhelum.

They established a colony near Delhi in 1232. Sardar Tolak Khan, who came to Kashmir during the reign of King Zain-ul-Abidin (1423 to 1474), settled in the Poonch area (now the Bagh District of Azad Kashmir).

Although the tribe traces its roots back to Abbas, it is more likely that the Dhund Abbasi people are descended from the Abbasid dynasty. The descendants of Abbas displaced the Umayyad rulers and were known as the Abbasids. This dynasty governed for 500 years from Baghdad, Iraq. The rule of the Abbasi extended eastwards across Afghanistan into the South Asian subcontinent, covering the eastern part of modern-day Pakistan.

Extent of Abbasid rule

The Dhund Abbasi claim descent from theAbbasids. An Abbasid general, Zurrab Khan, was given the task to subjugate the king of Kashmir who refused to pay tribute to Afghanistan. He invaded Kashmir and overthrew the king and married the daughter of the new king. He remained as an ambassador to the state and lived at Darab Kot at Kahuta. His son, Akbar Ghae Khan, is the forefather of all Abbasi tribes, including the Dhond inMurree, Hazara division and Kashmir. Most of the tribe live in the North-West Frontier Province, Murree, Islamabad.
In 1021, the mountains were governed by Gakhars who the Dhond Abbasi in the Delhi Area. The Dhond Abbasis had settled in the area since an ancestor Poro Khan arrived in 880 CE. Noh Khan was his son born in 900 CE. In 968, Karlal chief, Galler Khan, came to Circle Bakote from south Afghanistan. Dhond Chief Sardar Taeq or Taif Khan met with Sabuktagin, the father of Mehmood Ghaznawi at Kabul in 975 CE and joined his army. This alliance continued.

      Gae Khan is not Hindi name . It is Persian name. His Father Zurab Khan AlAbbasi was believed to be a Governor of Khorasan during Abbasisds Khilafat.

    if you read the books written on tribes ( of old india)by different authors you may know the truth.all abbasi either dhund or others, these peoples are the natives of this hilly region.basically they were hindu tribes.During abbasi khilafat the muslim ulma in different peroid also came for the preaching of islam to the people of this mountains area, like SHAH WALI (nick name DHUND) .he preach the islam to the local peoples.and his followers were calling him dhund ,later on became dhund. just 90 or 100 years go back and check any document you will not find surname abbasi because people were writting their real surnames. GHAE KHAN the son of zurrab khan(army cheif of shenshah khurasaan-QUATAB SHAH) is the forefather of all abbasi tribes. how he made the abbasi tribes in pothohar and allover the indo-pak ? he has no thousands wives sons.and daughters and towhome he married his sons and daughters? THIS IS THE TRUTH THAT THE MUSLIM SCHOLARS LIKE ABU FADHAL. SHAH WALI(dhund) .QUATAB SHAH .FAREEDDUDIN GANJ SHAKAR,DATA GANJ BUKHSH etc preach the islam and hindus embressed islam and we became abbasi .khawaja,sheikh,alvi,farooqui,chashti,sayyed etc. face the truth.

    • Hamza Shahban Khan Abbasi November 11, 2017 / 11:34 pm

      For your Correction!!
      Dhund, Nick Name was Given or you can say that gifted by Hazrat Bhao ud din Zakria Multani(r.a) to Shah Wali Khan,then he got famous by this Nickname and then his lineage carried that name with them,and started calling,introducing them as Dhunds Siblings of Shah Wali Khan.

    • Hamza Shahban Khan Abbasi November 11, 2017 / 11:40 pm

      • Hamza Shahban Khan Abbasi November 11, 2017 / 11:48 pm

        Sayyad*r from the Lineage of Hazrat Hussain(a.s) and Hazrat Hassan(a.s)
        Alvi* trace their Bloodline from Hazrat Ali(r.a)

        Khwaja and Sheikh r those who
        Migrated from Arab or Hindo Transformed Muslim who choosed Sheikh name for them after accecpting Islam.
