the tribes of AFGHANA. Pakhtun, Pashtun, Pathan, Pukhtoon
etc are some other names for Afghan. Their language is Pashto.
They are descendants of Hazrat Ibrahim (ABRAHAM).
When I was a teenager
I used to go to Mahabat khan jumat in Peshawar. After prayers
we would sit with tablighi jumat. I still remember when I
asked a spingeray from tablighis: was there any prophet among
pashtuns, the old man answered yes of course: Khalil khan
(Abraham), Isaac khan (Isac), Israel khan (Jacob),Yousaf khan
(Joseph), Musa khan (Moses), Isa khan (Jesus), they were all
I thought "Baba
jore da churso suta walae da, Zaka gaday waday wai".
I could not believe he was telling me something very important.
I thought all prophets were Arabs, at least thats the
Arab propaganda to get respect and call themselves sayyid
and exploit Pashtuns. In fact the real children of prophets
are Pashtuns. All these prophets spoke Hebrew not Arabic and
they were not Arabs at all.
In Hebrew Abraham
sounds Afroim , Avram , Afram etc.( In Pashto we use words
zar-ghan etc (which can be explained as goldlike or from gold,
from Abraham) gave origin to Afghan. (Also Hebrew is ibrani
-ibran-afghan and ibrani-ifghani (Pashto).
The holy book
of David (Hazrat Daud) was Zabur (the Psalms), and hence Pashtuns
use words Zaba-language or tongue or promise (the message
or promise of God to Abraham and his descendants, zabardast-
fantastic, Zabul-a region in Afghanistan. (Many words are
used in Pashto -spinzar, srazar, sanzarkhel, zartasha, zamina,
zarina, zarghon shah, zarghona, zahra, zanana, etc)
Today some tribes
use word jaba instead of zaba.
The name of Abrahams
grandfather was TERAH and father was AZAR. Abraham lived in
Babul and the king at that time was Nimrod.
When Hebrews settled
down in Afghanistan they named different regions to represent
their history eg.
NB! (At that time
this region was called khurasan meaning kha urasan-meaning
we got here safely).

AZAR (father of
Hazrat Ibrahim). Srazar, spinzar, zarghona, zarghonshah, zarmina,
zartasha, azara - another word for Afghans. Afgans living
in district hazara in NWFP. Word Hazara is mistakenly used
for Mongols in Afghanistan. When real azara migrated to Hazara,
abbotabad, Gilgit and Kashmir areas, the areas they came from
were taken by Chengez army and those mongols came to be known
as Hazaras in Afghanistan. While real azaras are living in
pashtunkhwa, most of them speak hindko but they are real Afghans.
Also Gilgit are Gilzai. Kashmiris are also Afghans (kasi is
a Pashtun tribe, mir is a Pashto word e.g mirali; its
actually kasimiris-kashmir. You will be astonished to know
that Butt living in punjab and kashmirs are actually buttkhel
Afghans (buttagram, buttkhela etc). No matter what language
they have adopted during process of assimilation they were
and are Afghans.
