Reported by Abu Huraira (R.A)This holy saying about Ghazwa-e-Hind is also affirmed by Imam Hambal in his 'Musnad', making it a Sahih hadith. Further, Imam Nisai also reported this hadith in his books: 'Al- Sunan Al Mujtaba' & 'Al Sunan Al Kubra' with the following phrasing:
"Hazrat Abu Hurairah (r.a) says, Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w.w) promised us of Ghazwa-e-Hind. If I get a chance to participate in it, I would spend all my energy & wealth for it. If I get killed, I would be considered among the greatest martyrs. And if I come back alive, then I would be a freed Abu-Hurairah".
