Before the actual happening of Qayamat [Day of Judgment], people will begin to regard Allahs property [waqf ,etc] as their own, zakat will be treated as a burden or fine, trusts will be misappropriated and husbands will obey their wives in anti-sharaih acts. children would disobey their parents and regard their father as alien and would trust aquaintances as their own. Religious education will be aquired to earn money. Leadership and administration will be in the hands of worthless people who will be mischevious greedy and ill-mannered.

Responsibilities will be entrusted to unfit persons. use of wine will become common and open. musicians and dancers will become verry popular. musical instruments will be in abundance and among the Muslims the successors will condemn their predecessors.

The Holy Prophet [sm] has said that at such a time people may expect such calamaties as raging of red storms, the disappearance of some people in the earth, raining of stones from the sky, changing of appearances. i.e, [some] men will become dog or pig faced, and many other of such calamities will follow in quick succession as if the string of a rosary has broken and the beads are falling rapidly.

some more signs have been reported such as, learning of religion will decline, lie will become an art, regard for trust [amanat] will disapppear, modesty and shame will vanish, infidels will dominate everywhere. When all of the above mentioned signs will have appeared, the Christians will dominate the world and will become its rulers. just at this time a man will be born in the clan of Abu Sufiyan in syria and he will kill a large number of syeds and shall rule over syria and egypt.

during this period there will be a battle between the Muslim ruler of rome [could be any muslim country in europe such as turkey] and two parties of Christians. but there will be a compromise between the Muslims and one party of the Christians. the enemy christian party will invade constantinople and its king will be driven out of the country into syria. their will be a fierce battle between the enemy christian party and the Muslims supported by the other Christian party. The Muslim and the allied Christian party will be victorious.

one day all of a sudden a man from the Christian "Allies" will anounce that the victory was gained by the blessings of the cross. The Muslims will retort by saying that it was because of Islam. this conflict will take a serious turn and there will be a battle between them resulting in the defeat of the Muslims. the king will be killed and syria will also be dominated by the christians. the surviving Muslims will migrate to Medina and the christian rule will extend upto khyber - a place near Medina.

Under such circumstances, being dismayed and disapointed, the Muslims will become anxious to find the Imam Mehdi to get rid of all the calamities. At this time Imaam Mehdi will be at Medina, but aprehending that people will press him to take the administration, he will go to Makkah. Some pretenders will also appear claiming themselves to be Imaam Mehdi.

Imam Mehdi will be recognised by some pious persons while he will be engaged in the tawaf of the Kaaba between the Hajere Aswad and the Muqame-Ibraheem. He will be pressed by those pious men to accept their pledges of allegiance, as their ruler. During the course of pledges being given, a voice will come from the sky, which will be heard by all those present that "This is the Caliph of Allah - Imam Mehdi"

After the appearance of Imam Mehdi, the most significant signs of Qyamat will begin to appear. with the spread of the news of Imam Mehdi and the pledges, the Muslim army of Medina will come to Mecca and devotees from Syria, Iraq, Yemen and many other Arab armies will join Him. A man from Khurasan will march as the Head of a large army to help Imam Mehdi and the vanguard of this army will be under the command of a man named Mansoor. This army will destroy a large number of infidels on its way.

The man from the clan of Sufiyan will also send an army to fight with Imam Mehdi. while the army will be camping in the desert between Mecca and Medina at the foot of a hill, the earth will rent apart and the army will sink in the chasm. only two of them will survive - one of them will inform Imam Mehdi about the fate of the army and the other will inform the man of Abu Sufiyan.

The Christians will collect armies from all corners to resist the Muslims. The Muslims will also make preparations. The Muslim army shall have eighty banners and under each banner there will be twelve thousand soldiers. Imam Mehdi will march from Mecca to Medina and after visitng the tomb of the Holy Prophet [sm] , will proceed towards damascus in syria. the christian army will also advance to confront Him. The Army of Imam Mehdi will split into three groups - one will desert, the second will be killed in the battle and ultimately the third will be victorious by the grace of Allah. the Imam will establish His rule over the country. then he will advance towards constantinople, on reaching the river rome, He will depute seventy thousand soldiers from the clan of Abu Ishaq to attack the city. on reaching the parapats of the city the soldiers will cry out "Allahu-Akbar" and by its blessings the walls of the city will fall down and they will enter the city. killing the infidels, they will conquer the city. They will rule with justice and fairness and will restore order. all this will be done within six or seven years after the pledges taken by Imam Mehdi.

When Imam Mehdi will be busy in setting right the administrative affairs of constantinople, a rumour will spread that the Dajjal [the one eyed anti christ imposter] has appeared in Syria. hearing this the Imam Mehdi will proceed towards syria and will send some horsemen in advance to ascertain the rumour. one of these will return to inform that the rumour was baseless. Being satisfied the Imam will slow down His speed and would reach syria after settling the affairs of countries on His way.

Soon after the arrival of the Imam in Syria the Dajjal will actually appear. He will be from the Jews. He will appear between Syria and Iraq and will claim to be a Prophet. He will go to Asfahan where seventy thuosand Jews will join Him. Then He will declare Himself to be God. Trampling and over-running several countries He will reach the boundaries of Yemen. everywhere infidels will join Him in large numbers till he will reach the outskirts of Mecca; but will not be able to enter it as it will be guarded by Angels. being unable to enter into Mecca he will proceed towards Medina, but there too, he will not be able to enter. at this stage Medina will be rocked thrice by earthquakes and those who will be weak in faith will rush out of Medina and will fall prey to the Dajjal.

There will be a saint in Medina who will argue with the Dajjal verry hotly and be murdered by the Dajjal. then the Dajjal will...order the saint's body to come alive again, the saint will come back to life. the Dajjal will ask the saint if he still disbelieved "in his divinity", the saint will reply that he is now fully convinced that he is the Dajjal. the Dajjal will again try to murder the saint but he will not be succesful.

Dajjal will then proceed towards Syria but before he will reach Damascus Imam Mehdi will be there preparing for the battle. during this, at the time of Asr, adhaan [call of prayer] will be called and Muslims will preparing to offer prayer, just then, Jesus, the son of Mary pbuh, will be seen decending from the sky keeping his hands on the shoulders of two angels and will alight on the eastern minaret of Jumaa Mosque and will come down from there by a ladder. Imam Mehdi will offer to hand over all administration and charge of the battle to Jesus pbuh, but He will decline the offer, and would ask Imam Mehdi to remain incharge as He [Jesus pbuh,] has come to kill the Dajjal.

next morning Imam Mehdi will lead the Muslim army to the battle field and Isa [as] [Jesus pbuh] will advance towards Dajjal on horseback with a spear in his hand. The Muslim army will attack the forces of Dajjal and there will be a severe battle. During the battle the [holy] breath of Isa [AS] will reach as far as the eye can see and all the infidels who will come into it's range will die, On seeing Isa [as], the Dajjal will try to escape and will be pursued by Isa [as]. The Dajjal will be killed by Isa [as] at a place called ludd near Medina [some say its a place in palestine]. Isa [as] will go from place to place consoling the people that were oppressed and persecuted by the Dajjal and by the grace of Allah no infidel will be left.

Then Imam Mehdi will die and the administration will be taken over by Jesus pbuh. The Gog and Magog [extremely evil people with a rebbelious nature] will come out. their abode is beyond the last limit of population in the north of the world where the waters are frozen. the Gog and Magog will create mischief and trouble in the world. Isa [as] will go up the toor mountain with all the Muslims as will be ordered by Allah. Gog and Magog will be destroyed by Allah and Isa [as] and the muslims will come down from the mountain.

After forty years Isa [as] will die and will be buried in the tomb of the Prophet Mohammed pbuh, Isa [as] will be succeeded by a person named Jahaj from the clan of Qahtan. He will rule with great jusitce and fairness and there will be several rulers after Him. then virtues and good acts weill begin to decrease and immorality and vices will be on the increase. At such a time the sky will be covered with fog, it will decend upon the earth due to which the Muslims will catch cold and the infidels will faint. the fog will disappear after forty days near the month of dul- Hijjah. after the tenth of that month suddenly a night will be so long that travellers will be confounded, children will be tired of their sleep, and the animals will begin to moan to go grazing in the grounds, but it will not dawn till all humans will be terribly frightened and perplexed. the duration of that night will be equal to three nights and the sun will rise from the west with a dim light. after that no ones declaration of faith or penitance will be acceptable to Allah. when the sun will be as high as at noon, it will return to the west to set as usual and there after it will continue to rise in the east as usual.

Just after a few days of this incident an earthquake will rock and splitt the safa-hill and a verry strange creature will come out of it and it will talk to the humans and will traverse the whole earth with great speed marking the foreheads of the believers with Ase-e- Musa [the stick of Moses pbuh] which will brighten their faces. and on the necks and noses of the non- believers it will put a black seal with the ring of the Prophet Sulayman pbuh which will darken their faces. after completing this job the strange creature will disappear.

Then a verry pleasant and refreshing breeze will flow from the north and it will cause some trouble in the armpits of the believers and as a result all of them will die. After the death of the Muslims the black Abysinians will dominate the world and will destroy the Holy Kaaba in Mecca, Haj will be stopped. the holy Quran will be efaced from the hearts and paper, there will be none to fear or remember Allah. at this time everything will be cheap in Syria and people from all sides will rush towards Syria. there will be great progress in the world, this will continue for three or four years.

Then on one friday which will be tenth of Muharram when people will be engaged in their business in the morning, suddenly the Soor [a horn] will be blown - first in soft tone and then its sound will go on increasing gradually to such an extent that people will die of it in panic. Earth will be destroyed. this will happen after one hundred and thirty years of the rising of the sun from the west. Now from here the day of Judgement will begin.

May Allah enable us to recognise and heed the Signs, and strengthen us in the times of tribulation. Ameen
hello abdullah,

i read all of your post. i found it quite fascinating. i have a few questions, though. is this based on an actual prophecy based on scripture from the Quran? or is there an actual muslim prophet who stated this? is he alive today? i saw the link but couldn't find anything to reference to this post. again, the post is amazing and basically just want to know what is the origin of this story. thanks and God bless...
Hi Leosalinas :)

The Signs of the Last Day, are taken from the Quran and the hadiths [sayings of the Prophet Muhammad saw], and The one's above are generally from the ahadith.

The above is from the works of The late great Hanafi Shaykh, Maulana Ashraf Ali Thavi [ra], who is a well renouned, trustworthy and a highly learned Shaykh of mainsteam/traditional Islam, who would have been well aquainted with the authenticity classifications of the ahadiths, thus we can trust all of the above to be correct.

The above signs also matches all the hadiths I have seen of the end of times signs, and they match the works of other Scholars as well, regarding this issue, thus this ressures us even more that the authenticity of them reports are trustworthy.

Hope that helps

Peace. :)
kindest regards, abdullah,

so the post then is literal and not to be taken symbolic? that is amazing, you know? i will have you know that i myself am a Christ follower to the core and the only thing that i disagree with was that He Himself dies eventually? unless there is more written about the day of Judgment. if there is can you let me in on this knowledge if not just give me a link, ok? this is very fascinating. thanks and God bless you...
Hi Leosalinas22

The link below contains three book by Ibn Kathir. You might enjoy reading them.


Hope that helps
Salaam Leosalinas :)

We believe that Jesus [pbuh] will die after he returns to earth, just as all humans will have to inevitably die one day.

Every human being will be ressurected on the Day of Judgement, and thus so will Jesus, pbuh, so in this sense, Jesus' death wont be 'forever'.

The end of times signs are litteral as opposed to them being all metaphorical, but some unclear statements may have metopohorical meaning, such as the Prophet [saw] said that the Dajjal's 'donkey' that he will travel on, will have a span of forty cubits from ear to ear, and that the Dajjal will travel 'Like cloud driven by the wind' and that he will cross the ocean three times in a day, so these statement could be reffering to a fighter jet, as a fighter jets wings are approxiamately forty cubits from one wing to another, and the fighter jet travels in the sky, and it leaves a trail of fumes behind that look like a could, and it can also cross the ocean three times a day. There was no concept of a plane in those days, so that is why the Prophet [saw] could have said 'donkey' to refer to a kind of 'transport'.

In addition to brother Farhans link, below is a hadith taken from the rigorously authenticated collection of Sahih Muslim:

Book 041, Number 7015:

An-Nawwas b. Sam'an reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) made a mention of the Dajjal one day in the morning. He sometimes described him to be insignificant and sometimes described (his turmoil) as very significant and we felt) as if he were in the cluster of the date-palm trees.

When we went to him (to the Holy Prophet) in the evening and he read (the signs of fear) in our faces, he said: What is the matter with you? We said: Allah's Messenger, you made a mention of the Dajjal in the morning (sometimes describing him) to be insignificant and sometimes very important, until we began to think as if he were present in some (near) part of the cluster of the datpalm trees.

Thereupon he said: I harbour fear in regard to you in so many other things besides the Dajjal. If he comes forth while I am among on, I shall contend with him on your behalf, but if he comes forth while I am not amongst you, a man must contend on his own behalf and Allah would take care of every Muslim on my behalf (and safeguard him against his evil).

He (Dajjal) would be a young man with twisted, contracted hair, and a blind eye. I compare him to 'Abd-ul-'Uzza b. Qatan. He who amongst you would survive to see him should recite over him the opening verses of Sura Kahf (xviii.). He would appear on the way between Syria and Iraq and would spread mischief right and left. O servant of Allah! adhere (to the path of Truth).

We said: Allah's Messenger, how long would he stay on the earth? He said.. For forty days, one day like a year and one day like a month and one day like a week and the rest of the days would be like your days. We said: Allah's Messenger, would one day's prayer suffice for the prayers of day equal to one year? Thereupon he said: No, but you must make an estimate of time (and then observe prayer). We said: Allah's Messenger, how quickly would he walk upon the earth? Thereupon he said: Like cloud driven by the wind.

He would come to the people and invite them (to a wrong religion) and they would affirm their faith in him and respond to him. He would then give command to the sky and there would be rainfall upon the earth and it would grow crops. Then in the evening, their posturing animals would come to them with their humps very high and their udders full of milk and their flanks stretched. He would then come to another people and invite them. But they would reject him and he would go away from them and there would be drought for them and nothing would be left with them in the form of wealth. [my comment: this could indicate a weather control machine under the power of the Dajjal; some Scholars said that the Dajjal would have the 'means' to perform all of this seemingly miraculous thnigs, rather than doing them at sheer will power, and even if it sohuld be at sheer will power, than Allah would only give him this power to test the people]

He would then walk through the waste, land and say to it: Bring forth your treasures, and the treasures would come out and collect (themselves) before him like the swarm of bees. He would then call a person brimming with youth and strike him with the sword and cut him into two pieces and (make these pieces lie at a distance which is generally) between the archer and his target. He would then call (that young man) and he will come forward laughing with his face gleaming (with happiness) and it would at this very time that Allah would send Christ, son of Mary, and he will descend at the white minaret in the eastern side of Damscus wearing two garments lightly dyed with saffron and placing his hands on the wings of two Angels. When he would lower his head, there would fall beads of perspiration from his head, and when he would raise it up, beads like pearls would scatter from it.

Every non-believer who would smell the odour of his [Jeuss'] self would die and his breath would reach as far as he would be able to see. He would then search for him (Dajjal) until he would catch hold of him at the gate of Ludd and would kill him. Then a people whom Allah had protected would come to Jesus, son of Mary, and he would wipe their faces and would inform them of their ranks in Paradise and it would be under such conditions that Allah would reveal to Jesus these words: I have brought forth from amongst My servants such people against whom none would be able to fight; you take these people safely to Tur, and then Allah would send Gog and Magog and they would swarm down from every slope.

The first of them would pass the lake of Tibering and drink out of it. And when the last of them would pass, he would say: There was once water there. Jesus and his companions would then be besieged here (at Tur, and they would be so much hard pressed) that the head of the ox would be dearer to them than one hundred dinirs and Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would supplicate Allah, Who would send to them insects (which would attack their necks) and in the morning they would perish like one single person. Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would then come down to the earth and they would not find in the earth as much space as a single span which is not filled with their putrefaction and stench. Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would then again beseech Allah, Who would send birds whose necks would be like those of bactrin camels and they would carry them and throw them where God would will.

Then Allah would send rain which no house of clay or (the tent of) camels' hairs would keep out and it would wash away the earth until it could appear to be a mirror. Then the earth would be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing and, as a result thereof, there would grow (such a big) pomegranate that a group of persons would be able to eat that, and seek shelter under its skin and milch cow would give so much milk that a whole party would be able to drink it. And the milch camel would give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe would be able to drink out of that and the milch sheep would give so much milk that the whole family would be able to drink out of that and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.

Salaam :)
And Muslims are supposed to literally believe this stuff?

Now that is amazing in this day and age!

Namaste P-A it might be appropriate for you to start a thread and tell us what you believe and why you are inclined to join an multi-faith discussion forum. This and other posts don't indicate that you are here to discuss...I may be mistaken.

What reason is there not to believe it my friend? :)

Could Allah not make anti-Christ appear and give him some powers in order to test the people?

Could Allah not send Jesus [pbuh] back to slay the Anti-Christ?

All is possible, and all will indeed happpen.

very nice post and yes very nice point.
You have to remember Allah {STA} is creator and master of all things.
Inshallah, may we be ready, when Jesus aka Isha {AS} is back on earth
to get ride of Al-Dajjal and his Shayyaitan army.


As far as I am concerned, all the minor signs of the Last Day happend or are happening right now. I have been studying the prophecy (Islamic, Christian and Jewish) about the Last Day signs, and I think that all the minor signs have happened.
Certainly, what is very interesting is the fact that both the Bible and Qur'an mention Israel existing right before the Judgement Day. Israel as a state has not existed for quiet some time until this past century. Both Holy Books mention gathering of the Israel 'mixed' to the Holy Land. After all, that is where the last battle is to take place.
The climate is certainly changing, and it reminds me of the period of three years prior to the rise of Dajjal (the antichrist). Already two times, I was watching CNN and there was a news report mentioning the honey bees disappearing and the fact that the honey bees help us get 2/3 of the world's food supply. For some this may not mean anything, but going back to the biblical prophecy, this is very significant.

Also, I read that every planet is bound to go through a retrograde process. What this means is that the planet slows down, and begins to rotate in the opposite direction making the Sun seem that it is rising on the opposite side (the West). The scientists are not sure if Earth ever went through similar process, but are sure that it will some time. The Holy Qur'an mentions this rise of the Sun in the West as one of the great signs of the Hour (Last Day).

I do not know about you, but I feel that the great signs of the Last Day are coming faster and faster.
Hi Amica

I must say that i disagree with the fact that we are arriving into 'the last days'. You know every century someone seems to think the end is nigh. The thing with the media is that they need to come up with stories... Bees dying out? :confused:

Trust me if your waiting for the world to end you're going to be waiting a long time:D.

No they aren't. You are completely out of your head.
it is an interesting 'translation'

thanks for bringing this thead back to life for others to see how diverse the interpretations of quran can be.
Dont mention it Bishadi :eek:; your wellcome! :)


without pursing differences; can we focus on the combining truths of what each can equally see as the 'signs of the last day' ...

for example; the end result being World Peace; can we agree on that?
