    Well, Tahir ul Padri claims that he met Rasul Allah sal allahu alayhi wasalam and he visited New Jersey

    This isn't bad to use against someone who says "Muslims, go back to your country!".

    Maybe not the sahaba but I believe some early Muslims did, yes.

    This is very interesting! JazakAllah khair for sharing. My parents come from a country called Guyana in South America as well as my grandparents, but they were brought there as indentured labourers from India by the British. I have read accounts about Afghans and Arabs being there before. There should be more research on this.

    Omar bin Al-Khattab didn't even let his army go into the sea when the poet gave him a description of it.

    What evidences do we have for early Muslims a nd there trips to America? Natives look sufi...
    Behind every pious Muslim was a caring mother.

    A student of knowledge told about a narration that a companion ordered a ship to be sent across the Atlantic saying there must be something beyond this Allah knows best i cant remember who it was he mentioned it was a long time ago and I didn't ask him the source so don't hold me to it. Has anyone else heard of anything to that effect?

    I don't get what you mean by "Natives look sufi..."
