    Is The End Time near ?

    "What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive" (Surah Muhammad: 18

    From this verse we learn that the Qur'an describes signs that announce the coming of the Last Day. In order to understand the signs of this 'great announcement' we must reflect upon these verses. Otherwise, as the verse indicates, our thinking will be of no use when the Last Day is suddenly upon us.

    Is THE HOUR NEAR ?

    Allah reveals in the Qur'an that there can be no doubt that the Last Day is near.
    And the Hour is coming without any doubt ... (Surat al-Hajj: 7)

    We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming. (Surat al-Hijr: 85)

    There may be some who think that the message of the Qur'an concerning the Last Day was revealed more that 1400 years ago and that this is a long time compared to the length of a human life. But here, it is a question of the end of the world, the sun and the stars, in short, of the universe. When we consider that the universe is billions of years old, fourteen centuries is a very short period of time.

    In the hadiths that have come down to us from the Prophet (saas), news is given concerning the End Times and the Golden Age of Islam. When we compare these signs with the events that are taking place in our time, we can see many indications that we are living through the End Times and which also herald the arrival of the Golden Age of Islam .

    Some of the signs related in the hadiths were observable in some part of the world in any period during the 1400 year history of Islam, but that would not have proven that that period was the the End Times. For a certain period to be called the End Times, all the signs of the Last Day must be observed to be occurrence in that same period. This is expressed in a hadith:

    Allah's Messenger (saas) said: 'The Harj (will increase).' They asked, 'What is the Harj?' He replied, '(It is) killing (murdering), (it is) murdering (killing).' (Bukhari)“

    The Hour will come when violence, bloodshed, and anarchy become common”. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanzul Ummaal)

    “The world will not come to an end until a day would come to the people on which there will be general massacre and bloodshed” . ( Imam Muslim)

    If we look at the last fourteen centuries, we see that wars were regional before the twentieth century. However, wars that affected everyone in the world, political systems, entire economies and social structures, have happened only comparatively recently, in the two world wars. In World War I, more than 20 million died; in World War II, the toll was more than 50 million. At the same time, World War II is acknowledged to have been the bloodiest, the greatest and the most destructive war in history.

    The conflicts that occurred after World War II-the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Gulf War-are among the most critical events of our time. Likewise, regional wars, conflicts and civil wars, have caused destruction in many parts of the world. In places such as Bosnia, Palestine, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Kashmir and many others, problems continue to afflict humanity.

    "Great cities will be ruined and it will be as if they had not existed the day before". (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-Zaman)

    The ruin of great cities spoken of in this hadith brings to mind the destruction that now arises from war and various natural disasters. Recently developed nuclear weapons, aircraft, bombs, missiles, and other modern weapons, have caused untold destruction. These terrible weapons have brought about a degree of destruction never before seen. Indeed, the great cities targeted are most affected by this destruction. The incomparable destruction of the Second World War is an example of this. With the use of the atom bomb in world's greatest war, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were completely destroyed. As a result of heavy bombing, European capitals and other important cities suffered a great amount of damage.

    "The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until ... earthquakes will be very frequent." (Bukhari)

    There are two great hadiths before the day of Judgment... and then years of earthquakes. (Narrated by Umm Salama r.a.)
    In the last few years, major earthquakes have occurred repeatedly and are among the foremost fears of people around the world.

    If we look at the data collected by the American National Earthquake Information Center for 1999, we find that 20,832 earthquakes happened somewhere in the world. As a result, an estimated 22,711 persons lost their lives.

    The Hour will come when adultery becomes widespread. (Al-Haythami, Kitab al-Fitan)

    The Last Hour will not be established until they (wicked people) commit adultery on the roads (public ways). (Ibn Hibban and Bazzar)

    Men will imitate women; and Women will imitate men. (Allama Jalaluddin Suyuti, Durre-Mansoor)

    People will indulge in homosexuality and lesbianism. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanzul Ummaal)

    There will be prevalence of open illegal intercourse. (Bukhari)

    The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until murders will increase. (Bukhari)

    Near the establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and general ignorance will spread... (Bukhari)

    There will come a time upon the Ummat when people will recite the Qur'an, but it will not go further than their throats, (into their hearts). (Bukhari)

    Before the Last Hour there will be commotions like pieces of a dark night in which a man will be a believer in the morning and an infidel in the evening, or a believer in the evening and infidel in the morning. (Abu Dawud)

    There will appear in latter times a people who will gain this world with the help of religion. (Tirmidhi)

    The Last Hour will not be established until there will remain those people who will neither be aware of the virtues and never prevent the vices. (Ahmad)

    The Last Hour will not come before Allah takes His religion away from the people of the earth, leaving no one in it but heathens who do not recognise right or object to wrong. (Reported by Abdullah ibn 'Amr ibn al-'As)

    The Last Hour will not come before there come forth thirty Dajjals (imposters), each presenting himself as an apostle of Allah. (Abu Dawud)


    Salaam for all .
    "Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance". Holy Qur'an 16:125

    The Signs are listed in roughly chronological order, although the order is not necessarily precise, especially for those in the future.

    This is a brief summary of the signs; there are many books, articles, cassettes etc. which discuss these in greater detail. May Allah enable us to recognise and heed the Signs, and strengthen us in the times of tribulation.

    Past

    1. Splitting of the Moon.

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    15. Wine (intoxicants, alcohol) will be drunk in great quantities.

    16. Illegal sexual intercourse will become widespread.

    17. Earthquakes will increase.

    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.



    Future

    24. The number of men will decrease, whilst the number of women will increase, until for every man there are 50 women.

    25. The Euphrates will reveal a treasure of gold, and many will die fighting over it, each one hoping to be the one who gains
    the treasure.

    26. The Mahdi (guided one) will appear, and be the Imam of the Muslims.

    27. Jesus Christ will descend in Damascus, and pray behind the Mahdi.

    28. Jesus will break the cross and kill the swine, i.e. destroy the false christianity.

    29. The Antichrist (al-masih al-dajjal, the false christ) will appear, with all his tools of deception, and be an immense trial. He will be followed by 70,000 Jews from Isfahan (present-day Iran).

    30. The appearance of Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Magog), and the associated tribulations.

    31. The emergence of the Beast from the Earth, carrying the Staff of Moses and the Seal of Solomon, who will speak to the people, telling them they did not believe with certainty in the Divine Signs.

    32. A major war between the Muslims (including Jews and Christians who truly believe in Jesus after his return) led by the Imam Mahdi, and the Jews plus other non-Muslims led by the Antichrist.

    33. Jesus will kill the Antichrist at the gate of Ludd (Lod in present-day Israel, site of an airport and a major Israeli military base).

    45. There is no-one left on the earth saying, "Allah, Allah" or "There is no god except Allah."

    46. Eventually the Day of Judgment is established upon the worst of the people, who copulate like donkeys in public.

    47. The blowing in the Trumpet by the Angel Israfil, upon which everyone will faint except as Allah wills.

    48. The second blowing in the Trumpet, upon which everyone will be resurrected.

    Wow that's a big list.

    I question the use of the word "near". If it says it is near in the Koran...when was that written?

    I'm a naysayer on apocolypse. No matter what religion is preaching it. And not because I don't wish the world would just blow up sometimes.

    All that is different now is that the weapons kill more at a time than previously.

    It's all relative in primitive times if someone destroys your village it's like the end of the world if that is all you know, If drought destroys your crops and the land is overfarmed it is serious.

    The armageddon of the bible is a real place, named after meggido a strategically inportant that was so fought over it's name became synonymous with conflict.

    Go away and study the last fourteen centuries, if you think there is more conflict in the world now than ever before you are in for a shock. All that is different is the killing power we have. Guess what, the most viscious wars were the ones started by religon.

    Did you just say "go away"?



    This is my point. The world has been fighting since the beginning of recorded history and then some. We are still here.


    11. Naked, destitute, barefoot shepherds will compete in building tall buildings.

    Being in construction, I think this is the scariest of them all. And Worker's Comp would have a fit!
