Hadith About Black Flaggers - Ibn-e-Majah 4084

This is a hadith that I was looking for...

The Hadith
a) Marfu Hadith (Saying of Prophet peace be upon him)
Thawban (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated, "The Prophet(Sal Allah hu alayhe wasallam) said:
: ( يقتيل عند كنزكم ثلاثة كلهم ابن خليفة . ثم لا يصير إلى واحد منهم . ثم نطلع الرايات السود من قبل المشرق . فيقتلونكم قتلا لم يقتله قوم )
ثم ذكر شيئا لا أحفظه . فقال فإذا رأيتموه فبايعوه ولو حبوا على الثلج . فإنه خليفة الله المهدي
"Three men will be killed at the place where your treasure is. Each of them will be the son of a Khalifah, and none of them will get hold of the treasure. Then black banners will come out of the east...' If you see him, go and give him your allegiance, even if you have to crawl over ice, because he is the Khalifah of Allah, the Mahdi."[Ibn Majah no:4084]


The english translation that has been copy-pasted doesn't go along with the text This is what this hadith actually means.. (the translation above is wrong and apparently wrongly interpreted)

"Three men will be killed at the place infront of your treasure all of them sons of Khalifah, then none of them would get the treasure, then black flags will emerge (rise) from the east, they will kill 'YOU' (the Muslims) like no nation was killed before... (from ravi) then there was a zikr (discussion) about something I don't remember and RasooluLLAH (PBUH) said, 'if you see him give him your allegiance even if you have to crawl over ice, it's evident that he's KhalifatuLLAH Al Mahdi' "

please go through the ahadith and you will see that people and translators usually ignore the discontinuation of Hadith and talk about giving allegiance to the black flags, while according to this hadith the topic changes in the middle...

Here the hadith means that the black flaggers will kill Muslims like no nation has been killed before

I have seen this glitch many times, if any of you have Hadith books please find this hadith and compare the actual arabic text not the translation

This hadith can be seen here.

ALLAH knows better
