Islam and The End Times 1

Islam and The End Times 1 magnify

I had said that I was going to do Gog and Magog in Islam next, mainly because I did the Gog and Magog in Christianity. In doing my research I found that the Gog and Magog in Islam is basically the battle of Armageddon, which comes at the end. Before I get to that, there are many other things to cover. We have already gone over the minor signs in Islam, lets go over some of the bigger aspects.

I will delve into some of these in greater detail such as the Dajjal or the Muslim anti-Christ, and Imam Mahdi in future posts. Also remember if you see ((and)) those are my comments on the matter.

The occurrences before the Major Signs:

ANOMALOUS INCIDENTS WILL OCCUR
Occurrence of red winds, disfiguration of faces (man to pig), and people being swallow into the ground. ((I haven’t found this one on most of the sites I have visited, but decided to put it up anyway. I will ask our Muslim readers to tell if this is a widely held belief.))


GENOCIDE
A man from Abu Sufyaan’s progeny massacres descendants of Nabi (S.A.W) and rules over Syria and Egypt.

Sakhr ibn Harb, more commonly known as Abu Sufyan, was a leading man of the Quraysh of Mecca was a staunch opponent of Muhammad who later converted to Islam. I will write more on this on my next post since he is mentioned as part of the end times.

WAR
A major war between Muslims and Christians: Half the Christian army will sign a peace treaty with the Muslim army, while the second half of the Christian army remains the common enemy. ((this is interesting especially when you consider the above comment))

ISTANBUL CONQUERED BY CHRISTIANS
The enemy half of the Christian army conquers Constantinople (Istanbul), Turkey.

ISTANBUL RECONQUERED JOINTLY BY MUSLIM AND CHRISTIANS
The Muslims and the good half of the Christian army conquer Constantinople together, against the enemy Christians. Thereafter, a Christian will say the victory was due to the cross, and the Muslim will say it was due to Islam. A battle between both sides will ensue, and the Muslim Ruler will be martyred.

SYRIA CONQUERED BY CHRISTIANS
The two Christian armies reunite, conquering Syria.

CHRISTIAN DOMINATION
Christians dominate the world up to Khaiber (near Madinah), and they will pursue Muslims with 80 flags, with 12,000 men under each flag.

MUSLIMS AWAIT IMAM MAHDI

TOTAL ECLIPSE
A total eclipse of the sun and moon will occur in Ramadan, prior to Imam Mahdi’s emergence. ((as you will see in some posts to come, we always hear something from Ahmadnutjob, in regards to something happening during Ramadan, this is why))

IMAM MAHDI EMERGES
At age 40, Imam Mahdi appears in Makkah, then flees to Madinah.

The Major Signs (i.e. events after the emergence of Imam Mahdi)

MUSLIM ARMY MARCHES
The army of Mansoor from Khurasaan will head towards Makkah to aid Imam Mahdi. They will win many battles on the way. No force will be able to stop them. They will carry black flags.

SUFYAANI ARMY SWALLOWED BY THE EARTH.
The Sufyaani army (an Anti-Muslim force) from Syria singles out Imam Mahdi for execution. On the way to Makkah, they get swallowed into the ground. A second Sufyaani army is created with 960,000 men (of 80 nations).

CONFRONTATION IN SYRIA
Imam Mahdi and the Muslim army go to Syria to confront the Christians. The Christians, before the battle, will ask Muslims for the return of their prisoners-of-war. The Muslims will refuse. The battle will begin. One-third of Imam Mahdi’s army will flee (their repentance will not be accepted), one-third will be martyred, and one-third will gain victory over the Christians.

MUSLIM ARMY UNDER IMAM MAHDI CONQUERS PALESTINE


JIHAAD ON INDIA
A jamaat of Muslims wages Jihaad on India and be successful.

SYRIA UNDER MUSLIM RULE
Imam Mahdi returns to Syria and establishes Muslim rule over the lands he passes.


ANIMOSITY RIFE AMONGST THE PEOPLE
At this time, Muslims will be weak and there will be very few pious people.

3 RUMORS OF EMERGENCE OF DAJJAL (“Anti-Christ”)… 3 YEARS OF
DROUGHT
Before the emergence of Dajjal there will be three years of drought. The first year, the skies will retain 1/3 of its water, the second year 2/3, and all of its water the third year.


DAJJAL APPEARS
Dajjal appears. His followers, the Yahudis, will number 70,000 and will wear expensive silk attire and carry double edged swords. ((I stopped this here, there is more that follows, which we will get to, once we finish up to this point))

Here is another list of things that some in Islam has to be fulfilled before the day of judgment. I am putting up what they show as already ‘past’ and ‘present’, but am leaving out the future for now. When I am near the end of the series I will re-post the list in its entirety.

PAST:

1. Splitting of the Moon. ((Considered fulfilled with the splitting of moon rocks after the Apollo missions))
2. Death of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
3. A form of death which will kill thousands of Muslims. (Understood to refer to the plague of Amwas during the caliphate of € ’±Umar ibn al-Khattab.)
4. A major fighting in Madinah (understood to refer to the battle of al-Harrah during the caliphate of Yazid, 63 AH).
5. The Muslim conquest of Jerusalem.
6. The Muslim conquest of Constantinople.
7. Two large groups of Muslims will fight in war. ((this sounds more like Sunni and Shiite to me, but I guess they know their history better than I do, plus there was a war between Iraq and Iran which could be considered as fulfillment, I will ask my Muslim readers to comment on this one))
8. A war between the Muslims and a reddish people with small eyes, wearing sandals made of hair (understood to refer to the Mongol Tatar invasion of the Islamic lands.)((we will cover more on this topic))
9. A peace agreement between the Muslims and non-Muslims from the yellow race (Chinese, Mongols, etc.)
10. Thirty impostors (dajjal) will appear, each thinking he is a prophet. ((we will get into this one later))

PRESENT:

11. Naked, destitute, barefoot shepherds will compete in building tall buildings. ((again any Muslims that can point me in the right direction on this one, will be appreciated))
12. The slave-woman will give birth to her master or mistress. ((?)) ((does this mean slavery will be, or is back in style??))
13. A trial (fitnah) which will enter every Arab household. ((?))
14. Knowledge will be taken away (by the death of people of knowledge), and ignorance will prevail. ((?))
15. Wine (intoxicants, alcohol) will be drunk in great quantities.
16. Illegal s3x will become widespread.
17. Earthquakes will increase.
18. Time will pass more quickly. ((only if your old lol, as you age the time flies faster every year))
19. Tribulations (fitan) will prevail.
20. Bloodshed will increase.
21. A man will pass by the grave of another and wish he was in the latter€ ’²s place.
22. Trustworthiness will be lost, i.e. when authority is given to those who do not deserve it.
23. People will gather for prayer, but will be unable to find an imam to lead them.

One of the problems I have encountered is not knowing all the ins and outs of the Muslim faith, in addition to the differing views. There are not nearly as many ‘interpretations’ of Muslim religious text as there are in Christianity. I have seen many verses taken at face value as you will see in the upcoming posts. And not all Muslims believe the same way, which we will also cover.

I am trying to write this stuff out in a way that everyone can understand it, in a simple way. But it is difficult when dealing with the Muslim stuff. Besides the fact that there is nothing ‘simple’ about the differing views of the ‘End Time’ prophecies.

The next several posts will be about Islam’s views on the end times. We will discuss Dajjal and The Mahdi and some of the differing views of Muslims. Then we will get back into more of the Christian signs. There is some very interesting stuff up ahead, so stay tuned.

    it’s sad to know that the majority of Muslims living today are fulfilling prophecies of war against other religions to please God.

    It is like editing the biblical prophecies to suit the Muslim’s audience to confirm war even against themselves.

    The devil is our enemy and we are planning to kill thousands to prove that we are the main corrupter’s of earth, we are using God’s gift that makes us better than animals to create weapons to defend ourselves from ourselves , when you think about it, the prophecies of Islam of the ‘End of Time’ are like puzzles of political views of the future, the details are sometimes confirming that the war they are talking about is similar to wars of the old times and not the war we are seeing now.

    And sometimes we are made to believe that rocks will help Muslims fight against the Jews and that we will be seeing new miracles.

    Anyone can claim that he is “The Mahdi” , who will confirm he is ?

    the answer is :

    Imam will call a lion and get it bear the witness of his imamate but even then that Arab will deny. Imam (ATF) will order the lion to swallow the Arab. Therefore, he, saying, “This is the requital of denying true Imam (ATF),” will reach in the stomach of the lion.

    we are waiting

    If only more thought like you!! 😀 Your views are refreshing in this time of war. We will be getting into how some think they can bring about the end times on both sides of the religious fence. I’m sure that God will have something to say about it. 😐 How can you say… I am not amused…

    No worries about long comments, make them as long as you like, just don’t ‘give away’ the series until I get to each part. 😀

    My Bible says, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” Matthew 5:9

    You sir, seem to me to be a peacemaker!! And I thank you for that 😀

    May your days be long, your life be full, and may your words of wisdom, reach others. 😀

    God Bless you and yours, as I’m sure He is!!

  3. Eagle Says:

    Also, Stefan,

    In this post I have several questions in regards to different things, can you answer any of them?? Any thing that has ((and)) are my input and/or question.

  4. Stefan Says:

    does this mean slavery will be, or is back in style?
    A good question Eagle,
    Sometimes prophecies gets out of hand when details are given, another example is the number followers of Al Dajjal:

    “When Dajjal appears, he will be followed by 70,000 Yahudis (Jews) from Isfahan (present-day Iran) wearing silk clothing, or wearing Persian shawls (according to Hadith 7034), and carrying double-edged swords.”

    please see

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persian_Jews

    “By various estimates, between 30,000 and 40,000 (most sources say 35,000) Jews remain in Iran, mostly in Tehran, Isfahan (3,000), and Shiraz.”

    Again we are waiting.

    “A trial (fitnah) which will enter every Arab household”

    Fitna (فتنة) is an Arabic word, generally regarded as very difficult to translate but at the same time is considered to be an all encompassing word referring to schism, secession, upheaval and anarchy at once.

    It is often used to refer to civil war, disagreement and division within Islam and specifically alludes to a time involving trials of faith, similar to the Tribulation in Christian eschatology.

    The term comes originally referred to the refining of metal to remove dross , but became common in apocalyptic writings and is often used to refer to the First Islamic civil war, in 656–661 CE, a prolonged struggle for the caliphate after the 656 assassination of the caliph Uthman ibn Affan.

    The Second Fitna, or Second Islamic civil war, is usually identified as the 683–685 CE conflict among the Umayyads for control of the caliphate. The third one refers to the taifas in the end of the Caliph of Córdoba’s rule.

    “Knowledge will be taken away (by the death of people of knowledge), and ignorance will prevail”

    maybe an intellect virus will kill the people of knowledge.

    “Occurrence of red winds, disfiguration of faces (man to pig), and people being swallow into the ground.”

    the original is @ Sunan Abu Dawood

    Book 36, Number 4273:

    Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu’minin:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Disagreement will occur at the death of a caliph and a man of the people of Medina will come flying forth to Mecca. Some of the people of Mecca will come to him, bring him out against his will and swear allegiance to him between the Corner and the Maqam. An expeditionary force will then be sent against him from Syria but will be swallowed up in the desert between Mecca and Medina. When the people see that, the eminent saints of Syria and the best people of Iraq will come to him and swear allegiance to him between the Corner and the Maqam.

    http://www.muslimaccess.com/sunnah/hadeeth/abudawud/036.html

    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, “A group of Israelites were lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and changed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.” I told this to Ka’b who asked me, “Did you hear it from the Prophet?” I said, “Yes.” Ka’b asked me the same question several times; I said to Ka’b. “Do I read the Torah? (i.e. I tell you this from the Prophet.)”

    (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 524)

    http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/hadithsunnah/bukhari/054.sbt.html

    Narrated Abu ‘Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash’ari:

    that he heard the Prophet saying, “From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, ‘Return to us tomorrow.’ Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection.”

    (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 69, Number 494v)

    to be continued…

    “1. Splitting of the Moon. ((Considered fulfilled with the splitting of moon rocks after the Apollo missions))”

    The Qur’an has mentioned the referred incident as a sign of the promised hour

    اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ

    The Hour draws near, and the moon is breached. (54:1)

    http://www.openburhan.net/ob.php?sid=54&vid=1

    The splitting of the moon (Arabic: shaqq-al-Qamar), is considered one of the cosmological events happened at Muhammad’s time.

    Most Muslims look at it as a miracle of Muhammad while others believe that the Qur’an has mentioned the referred incident as a sign of the promised hour, without ascribing it to Muhammad or mentioning it as a miracle.

    Another sign of the promised hour

    يَسْـئَلُ أَيَّانَ يَوْمُ الْقِيَامَةِ

    He asks: “When is the Day of Resurrection?” (75:6)

    http://www.openburhan.net/ob.php?sid=75&vid=6

    فَإِذَا بَرِقَ الْبَصَرُ

    So, when the sight is dazzled. (75:7)

    http://www.openburhan.net/ob.php?sid=75&vid=7

    وَخَسَفَ الْقَمَرُ

    And the moon is eclipsed. (75:8)

    http://www.openburhan.net/ob.php?sid=75&vid=8

    وَجُمِعَ الشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ

    And the sun and moon are joined together. (75:9)

    http://www.openburhan.net/ob.php?sid=75&vid=9

    There is a popular misconception that the “breaching” of the moon is a metaphoric statement, and in that case, man’s expeditions to the moon are such an example. however, these final signs, like the sun and moon joining together, are dramatically apocalyptic signs. they will disrupt the harmony of the universe in such a way that life, thereafter, can no longer continue to exist.

    As we all know and as vast scientic studies have proven, there is a certain order that governs the universe. each component of our universe follows certain patterns, respectively. The mentioned above signs are all indications of a certain distrubance in the natural cycles of the universe.
