The history of Arain

The only period in life when a person's caste assumes importance is when his parents set out to find a perfect daughter-in-law. A Rajput likes to marry a Rajput, a Butt would want a Butt and a Gujjar would have a Gujjar as life partner [of course we are talking about arranged marriages only. Love is blind; they cant even see that they belong to different castes. lolz]

Years back I asked my grandpa (may he rest in peace and may Allah shower all His blessings upon him) who are we and where we come from. He gave me a book by Ali Asghar Chaudhry entitled Tareekh-e-Araiyan published by Ilmi Kitab Khana, Urdu Bazaar. Its a 7"x10", 627 paged massive book. I never read it completely but it was through it that I came to know my history :) After describing the histroy, this book enlists in detail the Arain families from all over Pakistan and in the end from India. Among the families of Lahore the book names my great great grand uncle and my great great grand father which my grandpa had marked with a pen. (Thank you grandpa, I wish you were here and I could get more from you). I describe it briefly below.

In the Ummayad Dynasty (660-750 AD) there was a city, Areeha which lied on the road from Damascus to Jerusalem (now in modern Israel, close to the Dead Sea). For the protection of Damascus this city had geographical importance. Keeping in mind its importance, such people were given lands in Areeha who belonged to the superior families of Banu Ummayad or who were loyal to the Ummayads. These people were natural fighters, physically the fittest. Their ancestors were adept in wars. Not only they were skilled warriors but they were also good at agriculture. They cultivated the land of Areeha and it flourished. (Areeha is also called Jerico or Yareeho. Areeha is from Areeh which means aroma, Areeha means garden)

When Hajjaj Bin Yousaf decided to send his men to conquer Sindh, six thousand best soldiers were selected from Areeha along with smaller number of soldiers from other parts of Syria. They entered South Asia under the leadership of Muhammad Bin Qasim, defeated Raja Dahir, conquered many parts and introduced Islam in the region. After the death of Hajjaj Bin Yousaf and Caliph Abdul Malik, Caliph Suleman came to power. He had some family conflicts with Hajjaj Bin Yousaf. The new governor took revenge against all who were close to Hajjaj. Suleman owed political support to opponents of Hajjaj and so recalled Hajjaj's successful general Qasim while his men were forced to stay back.

Those who stayed never went back to the present day. Accoding to their origin they were Areehai which later took the form of Arain. After Qasim's return they chose a new leader, continued their attacks on other regions, established their governments in Sindh and Multan regions. Their families started growing in the region. Later a large part of the armies of Mehmood of Ghazni, Muhammad Ghori, Sher Shah Suri and the Mughal Emperors comprised of Arain people.

There are however other theories of the origin of Arain which the book refutes by giving proof. It may not have any significance today but for the sheer knowledge of it, there are four main rankings (not sub-castes) which refer to the wealth held by the Arain namely Mian, Malik, Chaudary, and Mehar. The rankings among Arain are not birthrights (such as those among other castes) and one can freely ascend/descend according to changes in personal wealth. Many gotras or sub-clans of the Arains bear names that indicate soldiering as an occupation. For example: Ramay (archers), Rattay (bloody, red, ferocious fighters), Ramday (red -eyed soldiers), Jatalay (victors), Qutub Shahi: (soldiers or their offspring who accompanied Qutubuddin Aibak), Bahalwan (driver of a chariot) and Bhutto (dwellers of high places).

A study by the Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences on blood types of the major ethnicities in the Punjab showed that O is the most common blood group (among all ethnicities), except among the Arain where B is most common.


Proud to be an Arain :-D

Right, Arains are infact desandants of soilders who arrived to subcontinent. But there is a mistake. You has posted that Bhutto is alos a got of Arains. No Bhutto is not a got of Arains but Bhuttos are the desandants of Rajputs. And again Arains are the desandants of Arabs and also they are also the desandants of Banu Ummaya.

but i want to know that either DNA of arains also prove the above stated facts or not?

Abdullah Shahid said...

I'm not aware of any DNA study that has been done on Arain people. I'l write about as soon as I come across one.

Ahmed44 said...

The blood group of Arains shows that Arains are the desandants of Arabs. Arains have B Positive blood group most common whereas, other ethnics of Pakistan have most common blood group O Positive. According to a relaible report "In our study we found blood group B is the most frequent blood group in Arain (40.5%), and blood group O is less common (24.7%) while it is the most frequent blood group among Awans, Rajputs, miscellaneous Punjabi sub casts, Balochs, Sindhis, and Pathans..." (http://www.pjms.com.pk/issues/janmar05/article/article6.html).

Another report says "There is no statistically significant difference of ABO and Rh-D distribution among various ethnic groups and casts, O is the most common blood group except in Arains where B is the most common and O is less common."(http://www.pjms.com.pk/issues/janmar05/article/article6.html).

Now I want to share my experience that I gain by studing about the history of Arains. I red a book about History of Arains named "Sham Ta Multan". The following book is written by Muhammad Idress Advocate. The following book also gives the refrences of other reliable history books those are Tareekh Frishta, Chachnama, Tohfa Tul Ikram, and an Urdu history book Aina -e- Haqeekat Numa written by Moulana Akbar Shah Khan Najeebabadi. All these books proves that Arains are the desandants of Arabs who arrived with Muhammad Bin Qasim and they are related to Arab famous tribe Banu Umayya.

Mukhtar said...

The story told in the Tareekh-e-Araian does not jive with historical facts. There were only a handful of Arabs with Bin Qasim, his forces were Iranians. SEcond, DNA studies catagorically refutes a semitic origin. It shows the origins of the Arains to be in Central Asia, especially around the Caspian Sea. If not convinced, please submit yourself to DNA mapping. It is not that expensive any more.

Abdullah Shahid said...

Thank you for your comment Mukhtar. And thank you for revealing on to me that DNA test is not expensive any more. I would like to stick to this Arab theory, however wrong it may be, because it seems to offend many people, which I had not anticipated by any means.

Whose historical sources are right, yours of mine? I won't go into the details; it's not worth my time. Not that it would convince me but you might like to show me this 'DNA study' that has been done on Arian people.

In the end I would like to say that I wrote this article just casually. It doesn't matter who the Arain or any other caste for that matter belong to. I don't care at all. It doesn't make any difference. It was just for a little entertainment.

I second Dr. M Ahmad (Mukhtar) Arains DNA Test would be a befitting step in right direction. If Dr. M Ahmad has already taken DNA test (if he is Arain or for the Arain people he knows about), I request him to please post its results like The X & Y Haplogroups and Markers respectively. Other Arains may follow suite to know DNA Haplogroups & Markers among Arains their genetic origin and distant past history eventually tracking it down to present day on Time Line.

Arain people belong to Areaha city which further consist of a number of other castes say bani Isamil and bani Israel. After the death of Jesus Christ a Rabi Arrian established as sect called arriani having people from many others castes mainly bani Ismael and Bani Israel both bani Ibrahim. The follower of Rabi Arrian had faith that is now of muslims. They all accepted Islam on after the announcement of Prophethud by Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) and migrated to India. Moreover many Irani people also call them Arain like sons of Cambyses, Arianrames and Cyrus who are purely bani Ismael Kings of Fars(Arabia).

Very interesting discussion indeed. Two of my first cousins are arains and they have got their DNA test reports. Both fall in Haplogroup J1b. I encourage more results to make a conclusive judgement. Besides if anyone of you can upload the books after scanning, it'll be great. I offer the space needed.

the great arain tribe belongs to strip atreeha .The arain warriors came under leadership of muhammad bin qasim and conquer debal by defeating raja dahir after return of muhammad bin qasim commanderstarting the attack came at multan where they established muslim state .after that arain tribe setteled down at banks of river sirsa the arain tribes are known well educated desciplined hard working agriculturist and develop nation of subcontinent.

Shahid said...

If we are realy desandants of Arabs
Then we should not use these titles
like chaudhry, malik, etc these are belong to Jat faimilies,even Mian is very commen title most of the faimilies use this title like gijjar, butt, Doger, I think we should use some different as Arabs use shaikh


Thanks,
Shahid Arain

These castes are meant to be bloodlines.For example rajputs are of the decedent of princes of Rajistan. I personally heard that arian are of a man who came from Jericho,his name was meant to be aria or something like that.I would also like to point out how the bhagbanpura family claims to be decedents of Muhammad ibn qasim.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arain
Genetics:
Genetic datasets taken from 25 Pakistani Punjabi Arain by Xing et al's Human genome variation study paints an intriguing picture. Preliminary studies by the Harappa Ancestry Project of the data of the Arain group show an almost identical profile to Sindhi's (without African admixture), however there appears to be little West Asian contribution, indicating any recent descent from an Arab population is unlikely. [14]

Interestingly this does back up the idea that Arain and Sindhi groups are related, so tales of Arain migration from Sindh to Punjab may hold some truth, as well as the idea that Arain converted to Islam under the rule of Muhammad bin Qasim.

There are some flaws in this data, it is most likely that Arain genetic profiles vary according to the region and economic class of the Arains involved. This is backed up by the observation that Western Punjab Arain often have coloured eyes and fairer skin than their Eastern Punjab counterparts. However since the creation of Pakistan there has been increased intermarriage between the two groups creating a more complex genetic picture. The ancestral background of the subjects is not stated beyond classing the probands as Arain.

Dear All, I am surprised to know that my blood group is B+ve because I am Arain!

I came to know (i have no reference unfortunately) that history of Arain starts from Bani Israel. When people (arain) from Bani Israel requested to Hazrat Musa (A.S) that they want to grow plants o Earth for food, and don't want man-o-Salwa anymore.

Their are 3 types of arain
1.Muhammad bin qasim decendents which is mention above.

2. 'Rai' .. They were decendants of Rai jaj grandson of hindu god ramayana ..you can seach him by name he is the mythical founder of lahore.

3. Arya .. these were the people who came from iran..

kashif said...

I onder why rajputs and jut have so much hatred against arains.i was haressed by juts rajputs throughout collage years...this shows that there is some enemity in our blood.jutts rajputs being descendents of hindusa nd arains being descendents of arabs...in my family we are so fair that even an outsider can see that we mashalah cant be from induian lineage...in my opinion the darker arains are due to intermarriages with hindu subcastes here

kashif said...

arains who id not intermarry with indian castes are very different from local hindu derived castes like jut rajputs gujjars.they are shareef and very few are criminals,almost all are sunni muslims...also the diseases like allergy and skin rashes are much more common in arains than any other etnic group in Pakistan ,and arabs specially from Palestinian area of areeha have similar allergy and rashes problem research says....my arain friend who is a frcs doctor did this research. also most arains are fairer than local indian races its very clear

hello, My name is Faraz Ahmed Malik, I am from Bareilly (UP) in India. I am from a community called Rayeen. My relative who live in Pakistan told me we are related to Arains, as he did some research there. We are fairer then local peoples.

Faizan Ashraf said...

My paternal uncle (Arain) is recently DNA tested in Canada and his Y DNA haplogroup is J P209 that's dominant haplogroup in modern Saudi Arab, Gaza strip, Yemen, some areas of Iraq and also found in Egypt.

First thing, I don't believe on todays DNA testing, cuz current DNA testing is based on habitats living recently in a specific region. Arains (Arabs who came with Bin Qasim)are in Indian Subcontinent since 711 A.D. Means more than 1200 years. Gene mutation causes different changes after several years with the environmental change of the specific region. If you try to DNA check Syeds in Pakistan they could also not be proven all as Arabs. Also all Lebanonis and Palestines aren't Arabs. There was a migration of Roman Catholic who latter accepted Islam and now considered Arabs. We have pedigrees, historical books and oral traditions those prove us that we are the Arabs.

Second thing, of course Arain use the tittle of Mian, Choudhry, Jam (Meher famous in Arabia too) and some areas Malik. Although there are number of Arain families that include their Arabic traditional names, like Hijazi, Shaami, and Amani. Arain got the tittle Mian and Meher from Mughals, Choudhary, Sardar and Jam from local Rajas, Khilgis and Afghan rulers.

Umar said...

One of the friends has claimed here that his two cousins are Arain and possess DNA tracks of Haplogroup J1b. Still he claims that Arains are not from Arab backgrounds as he has refused their ethnicity from Arab background. For that friend I am posting here a reference. You can read it and can go to the below URL to find more about J1b group.
(J1b is also very common among non-R1b populations in the Middle East (notably the South Caucasus, Iran and the Arabian peninsula), although the subclades are different. The most common J1b subclade in Europe, and the one most strongly associated with Y-haplogroup R1b, is J1b1, and particularly J1b1a in Europe, which also happen to be the subclade identified in the Urnfield culture. Other subclades of J1b are restricted to the Middle East or the eastern Mediterranean.)

Umar said...

One more thing I want to share you as a proof that all Arains (more than 99%) are Sunni Muslims. It means they migrated to the subcontinent as Muslims and it proves that their ancestors accepted Islam in its earliest times. Now some one will claim that thay could be the Iranians Muslims who migrated to the subcontinent, if that statement is true then most of them must belong to Shia sect but they are not. Hope you will understand the historical facts.

Arain are Aryans.I can prove that Mr.Abdullah Shahid,I challenge you!

Mian said...

I know quite a few Arains who took the DNA test and most haplogroups cane out to be J1B. That's interesting as j is the prominent group in Europe and middle east. However markers surprisingly pointed to Central Asia prevalence.

Please understand that genealogy shouldn't make us proud; progeny should.

Arains are descendants of jews. Arains came from kenan, an area where hazrat yousuf resides in his childhood. Arains then converted into Christianity and converted to islam in the era of hazrat khalid bin walid. One man of arain, settled in syria and then he came with the army of muhammad bin qasim.

Arains are cheater, unfaithful and enemy of their friends. They are snake. They have characteristics of jews. I hate arains.

vicky kapoor said...

What about the hindu Arain or rain.

Volvo Rex said...

There isnt much difference between the Western or Eastern Arains. Historically, Eastern part of Majha and Western part of the Jullundur Doab have been Arain strongholds, especially under the Arain chief Adina Beg Khan. Take Wasim Akram or DG Rangers, Hilal Hussain for example. Both pure Arains and look very Iranic/fair.

Volvo Rex said...

This Arab theory is flawed and fabricated. Arains are descendants of Scythian Medes who settled in Sindh in around 200 AD, moving from Eastern Balochistan (Bolan Pass) into the lower Indus Valley. They were originally Buddhist and fought together with Muhammad bin Qasim's army against Raja Dahir. Arains and Jatts have a common history, both farming/zamindar people, originally from lower Indus Valley, Sindh.

Arain genetics prove the Scythian Medes link. On Harappa DNA, Arains show average 45% Gedrosian Baloch, higher than other Punjabis, component which is Eurasian/Western Asian component related to the Eastern Medes Scythians.
In addition, they have lowest ASI of all groups, 5-6 individual samples show 18-24% ASI, comparable to the Pashtuns, Burusho and Kalash, indicating Scythian origin. Arains have average 22% European in Harappa DNA, also pointing to Scythian Medes ancestry. Haplogroup R1a is in frequency in Arains, pointing to Scythian Medes link.

Arains are known to have then moved up the Indus River to Panjnad and converted to Islam from Buddhism at the behest of Makhdoom Jahanian Sharif at Uch. Later, after fighting with Hindu Bhattis of Jaisalmer, they moved into Majha and Doaba regions of Punjab where they settled down and started farming. Apart from the Janjuas and Sikh Jatts, they are the only tribe that can have said to have ruled Punjab in the form of Adina Beg Khan, Arain chief of the Jullundur Doab and later all of Punjab. He defeated the invading Durrani and Rohilla Afghans in war and the Ahluwalia and Ramgarhia Sikh misls to the East and united Punjabi Muslims for the first time in history.

Arains also show very Scythian Iranic features. Examples of Arain cricketers showing Scythian Iranic features:

Arains dont have same gots as the Kambojs or Sainis. Arains share some of there gots with Jatts or Rajputs, such as Bhutta, Langah etc. but I havent heard them sharing gots with Kambojs or Sainis. Arains are almost 99% Muslim clan, the only Punjabi clan (in addition to the Awans) that is almost fully Muslim.

Volvo Rex said...

Which ones? The Arains are a Punjabi and Sindhi tribe and are 99% Muslim, unlike the Jatts, Rajputs or Gujjars. Only Awans and Arains are almost fully Muslim clans in Punjab.

Volvo Rex said...

Arains are not shareef people, they have warrior spirit. Look at brave DG Rangers Punjab, Hilal Hussain pure Arain. Look at Adina Beg Khan, 18th century Arain chief, ruler of Jullundur Doab and Punjab who fought Durranis and Sikhs. Look at General Zia (even though he was a bad person), the only person who had the balls to stand up to Bhutto and do what no one else could in the history of Pakistan.
The best fast bowlers of Pakistan are Arains, for example Wasim Akram, Sarfraz Nawaz Malik, Abdul Razzaq etc. This is true mard dallair, warrior spirit!

RaJander said...

@Volvo Rex: Dear sir, Arain and Sainis are almost all identical gots(or gotras), i am not talking about titles such as Mian or Chaudharis, any cast can have thiese titles, I am talking abouts Gots such as Ramey , Bhutta etc...
Arains are one of the few muslim, who did very well in educatin at the time of british raj, they progress a lot, further they are benificery of canel colony too.
When they progress in social hierchy, they started to relate themselves with arabs.

let me tell you one thing, before partition, there are a huge populayion of arains in eastern punjab, one thing is to be noted is, Sainis are arains village are always side by side, while Jatt villages are separate, My grand pa used to say, only sayyed are arabs,they claims decendrant from Profhet but infact they are arabs not nessaserally directly desndrant from prophet. According to him , in punjab only Sayyed and pathan looks different then local hindus and Sikhs.

by the way both Sainis and arains are on market gardening profession till british come.(ofcourse , excluding some families)
