Abul Kalam Azad: Gog & Magog are Mongols, Tatars, Scythians

وعلى اهل بيته الطيبين الطاهرين المظلومين
In the previous entry, I quoted al-Hafiz Ibn Kathir’s view that Ya’juj wa Ma’juj are the Turks and Mongols. Here I shall present the researched conclusions of the Indian Muslim scholar, Abul-Kalam Azad (1888-1958). He writes that Gog and Magog are those wild but powerful nomadic tribes whose raids motivated the Chinese to construct the Great Wall (Ashabi Kahf aur Ya’juj Ma’juj p.95):

 
Azad goes on to explain that in Asia one of their branches are known as the Tartars, and whom the Greeks knew as the Scythians. Furthermore, the Mongols must be identified with Magog. He writes that the Chinese refered to the Mongols as “Mog”, which is similar to Magog (ibid p.96):
