سَنَفْرُغُ لَكُمْ أَيُّهَا الثَّقَلَانِ

(Qur’ān, al-Rahmān, 55:31)

We shall one day take you to task, O you sin-laden two!

(In the above verse the Qur’ān has addressed both a Western world that is loaded with sin, as well as the Shayatīn (plural of Shaitān/ Satan who are evil Jinn/) who have supported and strengthened the West during their last 500 years of arrogant blood-stained rule over the world, to declare that Allah will bring their sin-laden rule over the world to an end. The verse below informs them how He will do so.)

يُرْسَلُ عَلَيْكُمَا شُوَاظٌ مِّن نَّارٍ وَنُحَاسٌ فَلَا تَنتَصِرَانِ

(Qur’ān, al-Rahmān, 55:35)

A flash of fire will be let loose upon you, followed by smoke, and you will be left helpless!

Sūrah al-Rahmān also warns them that their missiles, satellites, drones, etc., can fly through the skies, or from beneath the earth and the depths of the seas only with Allah’s authority. This implies that He can withhold His authority at any time, and that may just happen in the Great War. An angel, for example, can intercept a nuclear-armed inter-continental ballistic missile speeding towards a designated target, and turn it around to return it to its sin-laden sender!

Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves.” (more…)

سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

“In time We shall make them fully understand Our messages (through what they perceive) in the utmost horizons (for example in the scientific examination of the material universe) and within them­selves (for example in events that will unfold in the process of history) so that it will become clear unto them that this (Qur’ān) is indeed the truth. (Still) is it not enough (for them to know) that thy Lord-God is witness unto everything?

(Qur’ān, Fussilāt, 41:53)

Egypt is in a state of transition and it behoves Egyptians – Christians as well as Muslims – to seek to know the destination to which political change is taking them. Coptic Christians believe that Egypt, the land to which Nabi ‘Isa and his mother Mariam (‘alaihima al-Salām) were brought when they fled the Holy Land, has a special eschatological role to play when Nabi ‘Isa is to return. Muslims share with Christians the belief in that momentous messianic return with which history will end.  Will Egyptian Muslims and Coptic Christians now seek to build a common ground with which to jointly resist those who are hell-bent on attacking not only Iran and Pakistan, but also Egypt as well? Egyptian Muslims must be reminded of the blessed Prophet’s advice regarding Muslim-Christian relations in Egypt:

(إذا فُتِحَتْ مصرُ فاستوصُوا بالقِبْطِ خيرا فإن لهم ذِمَّةً ورَحِما. (البغوى، والطبرانى، والحاكم عن كعب بن مالك (more…)

Madinah 1343 (h): out of Dajjāl’s frying-pan and into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhābi fire

In just another 10 years from now in the month of Rabīal-Thāni 1443 the world of Islam will mark the 100th anniversary of the transfer of power in Makkah from the Ottoman Turks to the Arab Sultān ‘Abd al-‘Azīz Ibn Saūd. Troops loyal to the Sultan of Najd conquered Makkah in the month of Rabī al-Thāni 1343 (i.e., October 30th 1924 in Pope Gregory’s western Christian Catholic calendar) in consequence of which ‘Abd al-‘Azīz eventually proclaimed himself Sultān of Najd and King of Hejāz.

In 10 years from now it will also be a hundred years since Makkah and Madinah were taken out of Dajjāl’s Ottoman frying pan only to enter into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhabi fire. Let there be no doubt in the reader’s mind that after having shamelessly aligned Saudi Arabia with the Zionist Anglo-American Judeo-Christian alliance for the longest while, Saudi Arabia’s leaders have now made that State a strategic ally of the Zionist State of Israel. And hence it is clear that they work for al-Masīh alDajjāl, i.e., Dajjāl the false Messiah or Anti-Christ. This is perhaps the implication of the vision in which Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) saw Dajjāl making Tawāf around the Ka’aba. There is also considerable evidence that the Ottomans acted, consciously or unconsciously, on Dajjāl’s behalf by rendering considerable assistance to western Christianity. They did so by repeatedly plunging a vicious and venomous knife for some 600 years into the heart of its rival, i.e. eastern Christianity or Rūm. This was in accord with Dajjāl’s agenda since it was western Christians who made an alliance with Jews, and it is that alliance which brought Israel into being. Rūm never made such an alliance with the Jews!

The predictable result was intense hatred for Islam and hostility towards Muslims on the part of those in Rūm who suffered so unjustly and for so long a period of time.  (more…)

There are some Muslims who, impressed by the views of distinguished scholars such as Ibn Khaldun and Dr Muhammad Iqbal, have rejected belief in the advent of Imām al-Mahdi. Some of them even go on to dismiss our preoccupation with this subject with disdain and with spurious comments.

They should be warned that it is not only false but also sinful to argue that those who strive for a deeper understanding of the subject of the advent of Imām al-Mahdi (‘alaihi al-Salām) are a people who are content to sit waiting with folded arms for the Imām while doing nothing to combat falsehood and oppression in the world.

We have no doubt that certain members of the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) will be blessed with true dreams and visions which will convey to them information concerning the End-Time advent of Imām al-Mahdi (‘alaihi al-Salām). Readers must know however, that information so obtained cannot be objectively verified, and hence that there is no compulsion on any one to accept such information as truth.

This writer has never attempted to use such information in his analysis of events now mysteriously unfolding in the world, and in the Holy Land in particular. Rather he has continuously striven to grasp the ‘system of meaning’ of the subject of the End Times as derived from data located in the Qur’ān and Ahadīth of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). He is confident that his students will Insha Allah, continue that effort when he is no longer in this world. His conclusions, based on rational analysis (and intuitive internal insight), must always be qualified with the words Allahu ‘alam (Allah Knows best). (more…)

Prophet Muhammad prophesied the advent of an Imām who would emerge by Divine decree to lead the world of Islam at that time when the true Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon them all), was about to return.  The Prophet declared of that end-time Imām that he would arise from within the ranks of the Muslims: “How would you be”, he said, “when the son of Mary descends amongst you and your Imām would be from your own ranks!” (Sahīh Bukhāri).

An Imām in the religion of Islam is both a religious as well as a political leader; hence the office of the Imām is synonymous with that of Amīr or Khalīfa (Caliph).  The Hadīth therefore prophesied that one (Islamic) government would eventually rule over the entire world of Islam, and that the Imām would be both the political as well as the religious head of that government. 

This prophecy anticipated the present sorry status quo in which the Islamic Khilāfah (Caliphate) has been replaced by republican so-called Islamic States based on petty tribal nationalisms – Egyptian, Saudi, Pakistani, Arab, Malay, Punjabi, Bengali, Persian (Iranian) etc. African-American Muslims have even embraced Louis Farrakhan’s ‘black Muslim nationalism’. Some of them, such as Turkey and Bangladesh have even imposed secular constitutional bans preventing Islam from playing any political role in the affairs of the State.  (more…)

WILL THE SECOND SINKING OF THE EARTH SOON OCCUR?

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prophesied that ten major Signs of the Last Day would occur as follows:

1. Dajjal, the false Messiah or Anti-Christ,
2. Gog and Magog,
3. Smoke,
4. The beast of the earth or land (most likely the holy land),
5. That the sun would rise from the west,
6, 7 & 8. That the earth will sink on three occasions – one in the East, one in the West and one in Arabia,
9. That a fire would come out of Yemen and would drive people to their place of assembly (for judgement),
10. That the son of Mary would descend (i.e. return).

The blessed Prophet did not provide information concerning the chronological order in which those Ten Signs would occur. (more…)

In a Caribbean island of Trinidad that is blessed with a plural society, and which celebrates that plurality with the democratic proclamation “here every creed and race finds an equal place”, we Muslims are grateful that we still have at least that much freedom that we can buy newspaper space to publish a Muslim viewpoint on an issue as critically important as ‘Swine-Flu epidemic’. That appears to be the only way now left for publication of an authentic Muslim viewpoint in the so-called ‘free world’s’ print media.

On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization raised the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6 in response to the ongoing global spread of the influenza virus popularly known as ‘Swine Flu’. A Phase 6 designation indicates, according to WHO, that a global pandemic is underway. A pandemic occurs when a contagious viral disease infects people (and this may include animals) throughout an entire country or region, or even world-wide.

A mong the Signs of the Last Day as disclosed by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is that “time would move faster – so that a whole year would pass like a month, a month would pass like a week, a week like a day, a day like an hour, and an hour like the amount of time it takes to kindle a fire.” Why so?

He explained that the perception of time moving faster would be in consequence of the ‘remembrance’ of Allah Most High (Dhikr) departing from the heart, and a preoccupation with the worldly life (Dunyah) taking exclusive possession of the heart. The consequence of this spiritual vacuum would be that “people would make business agreements with one another and scarcely anyone would fulfill his trust”, and “it would be said that among such and such a tribe there is a trustworthy man. People would remark of how intelligent, excellent and resolute a man he is while (in fact) he would not have as much faith (in Allah) in his heart as a grain of a mustard seed.”

The blessed Prophet also warned that such would be a time of great betrayals in which “temptations would be presented to men’s hearts as a reed mat is woven stick by stick, and any heart which is impregnated by them would have a black mark put in it. The result would be that hearts would be of two kinds, one, white like a white stone, which would not be harmed by temptation as long as the heavens and earth endure, and the other, black and dust-colored like a vessel which is upset, incapable of recognizing what is reputable, or rejecting what is disreputable, but being enveloped by its passion.”  (more…)

LAST DAY MEANS LAST AGE

The term ‘Last Day’ in reality stands for the ‘Last Age’, or the age which would culminate in the end of history—when the true Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary (not son of God), would return to rule the world from Jerusalem with justice and ‘eternal’ rule. It would be ‘eternal’ in the sense that history would end with that event. Life on earth beyond that event, and after Jesus dies a human death and is buried next to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon them both) in Madinah, would not qualify as history. This would be so since the modern secular rope would have reached its predictable end in total godlessness, and with such a consequent collapse of morals, and of moral consciousness, that people would forget their human status and “would engage in sexual intercourse in public like donkeys”. Already it is quite clear (particularly at the time of Trinidad’s Carnival) that we are quite close to the fulfillment of that ominous prophecy made by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

So much so then, for the spurious claims of the one-eyed Judeo-Christian western civilization and its ‘colored house slaves’ around the world. They claim that mankind is witnessing unprecedented progress, that the present is the best of all ages, that the world keeps on growing better and better, and that modern western civilization has rendered all previous civilizations, including Islam, moribund and obsolete!  (more…)
