Imran N Hosein Articles Islamic Scholar Imran N Hosein provides a dynamic interpretation of the signs of the last day from an Islamic point of view. Using the Quran and Ahadith along with modern economics and historical record, he provides a contemporary interpretation of Islam which is neither reactionary nor passive. "The Quran explains ALL things" and hence he uses the Quran to explain the world today and the promising future awaiting Islam tomorrow.

RESPONSE OF ISLAMIC SCHOLAR IMRAN N. HOSEIN TO THE CHOICE BY THE PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN OF IMRAN KHAN AS THEIR NEW LEADER I write to congratulate the people of Pakistan on their courageous choice of Imran Khan as their new leader.  It appears that it is just a matter of time before he is appointed as Prime Minister. I congratulate them on their choice because I am confident that, unlike previous leaders of Pakistan, Imran Khan cannot be bought with either Saudi Rials or US dollars.

I am also confident that he will ensure such discipline that any corrupt member of his government will quickly find out that he leads government in the same way that he played cricket. The people of Malaysia must be happy to see Pakistan following  in their footsteps in dealing firmly with those who betray the people. Perhaps the bell is now tolling for other governments as well.

I will now plan to visit Pakistan Insha Allah, for a longer stay and we pray that the struggle for Truth and Justice prevails.

with love,

Imran N. Hosein

THE QUR’ĀN THE GREAT WAR AND THE WEST 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."

Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains.”

Revelation 6:15

US President Donald Trump spoke harshly about Pakistan; but he has not yet imposed sanctions, as has been the case with Iran, nor threatened to "totally destroy" it, like North Korea.
Pakistani diplomats believe there is room to maintain a working if not a cosy relationship with Washington. That remains to be seen. Islamabad disagrees with the 'new' US strategy concerning Afghanistan. It will not fight Afghanistan's war on its soil.
It will continue to oppose an expanded Indian role in Afghanistan. It wants a political settlement between Kabul and the Afghan Taliban, rather than continued conflict, and coordinated action to eliminate the militant Islamic State group and Al Qaeda, as well as the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, the Jamaatul Ahrar and the Balochistan Liberation Army, that operate from safe havens in Afghanistan.

MEETING WITH THE SAKER IN BEAUTIFUL TOBAGO I have just spent 10 exciting days with my Russian friend, ‘The Saker’, in the enchantingly beautiful Caribbean island of Tobago. I was born in the island of Trinidad where I now live, and Tobago is located just next to Trinidad in the South Caribbean Sea close to Venezuela:

This was the first time that I ever met with ‘Saker’, and I am happy to report that I succeeded in persuading him to come out in the open with his true identity, while putting his trust in the One God. As a consequence, his identity is now public. He is Andrei Raevsky, but he will continue to use his nom de plume of Saker. If you visit his website: you will even see his photograph. Those who are not familiar with him will get to know him if they visit his website.
]]> (Mogamat Abrahams) Islamic Philosophy Sun, 09 Apr 2017 11:13:47 +0000 THE TURKISH COUP: FOR RUSSIA FROM TURKEY WITH ENOUGH LOVE TO LAST UNTIL THE GREAT WAR  

Imran N. Hosein

Turkish President Erdogan is, of course, quite correct that there was US (and hence NATO) involvement in the attempted coup against his government. He is also quite correct in his accusations against the Turkish Sufi Shaikh, Fathullah Gulen, accusing him of involvement in the coup. It would have been more honest of Erdogan, however, if he had also disclosed that he knew that the coup was coming, he knew that NATO was involved, and he knew that the followers of Gulen, as well as others who were opposed to his rule, were to be deceived and used as sacrificial lambs in NATO’s preparation for war with Russia.

The immediate result of the attempted coup is to make Erdogan strong enough to better lead Turkey, on NATO’s behalf, in NATO’s coming war with Russia.   

If Turkey were to eventually announce that it is ending its membership in NATO, and if a Turkish delegation were to head for Russia to discuss an alternate alliance with Russia, the best response from Russia for such a visit would be to gracefully suggest that it be postponed until after the Great War. If the Turkish government were to insist on the visit from Erdogan to Moscow bearing gifts, the Russian President should increase the size of his body-guard.

RESPONDING TO THE UN Security Council Resolution on Syria (No. 2254) I consider this agreement among the members of the UN Security Council to be positive, even brilliant, and to offer a golden opportunity for political dialogue to replace blood-shedding as the center of gravity for forging an acceptable future for Syria.

Those who choose to reject this opportunity for a peaceful resolution of the war in Syria will now be singled out and identified in the eyes of the world as the people of Fasad (i.e., the evil people of corruption and destruction).

The time has come for the Syrian Sunni 'Ulama to reach out to the Syrian Shia 'Ulama, as well as to the leaders of the Syrian Christian and other Syrian communities and groups, for political dialogue to reach an agreement among themselves on the basis of which they can enter into dialogue with the Syrian government.

It is the Syrian people, and not the dangerously misguided Turkish President, who should determine Syria's future.

On what must they negotiate and decide?

1. They need to forge a united Syrian front with which to confront those who persist with fighting and with bloodshed in Syria.

2. They must adopt a firm common Syrian position of continued resistance to Israeli oppression.

3. They need to forge a political agreement for a plural model of a State in Syria that will accommodate the vital interests of both Sunni and Shia Islam, both Orthodox and Western Christianity, as well as that of other communities and groups in Syria. Syrian Sunni and Shia Islamic scholars and leaders, both in and out of Syria at this time, should take the initiative to reach out to Syrian Orthodox Christians to build a common bond between themselves, preparatory to engaging others in political dialogue.

4. They must accept that had it not been for Russia, Syria would have already become another Libya. Hence whatever be the future for Syria, it must recognize Russia's role in saving Syria from becoming another Libya. There can be no agreement for peace between those who want Syria to become another Libya, and those who resist such a future for Syria.

A commentary to Maulana Imran Hosein’s interpretation of the verse.

Verse 51 of Surah al-Maidah:

Being a commentary to Maulana Imran Hosein’s interpretation of the verse. 

By: Hasbullah Shafi’iy


Sayyiduna Umar radiyallahu anhu, in his six-line description of the Quran that we are unable to discuss here except one particular word that is relevant to our subject, most aptly said that the Quran is Barakah. Now, this is not a simple word at all. This word may be registered amongst the most frequently used vocabulary of any Muslim from any part of the world, but only that the meaning of this word is simply untranslatable into any other language, at least not into English. The meaning of this word can only be understood and explained by analogy or events.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah radiyallahu anhu, gripped by the pangs of hunger, was waiting in Masjid an-Nabawi for someone to come, one who could understand his state and feed him. Embarrassed to ask directly for food, he had asked both Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and Sayyiduna Umar (r.a.), “Iqri’nee,” which request could either mean “recite to me (from the Quran)” or, “take me as a guest.” Not realising his state, both of them had sat him down in the Masjid and had recited the entire Surah al-Baqarah and Surah Aali ‘Imran respectively one after the other. The poor companion of the Prophet (s) had to listen to the long recitations bearing the pains of his shrinking stomach. Now he was desperately hoping for someone else who could come and perceive instantly the other meaning of the word “Iqri’nee.”

There came the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the noblest of all the Arabs in language. When Abu Hurayrah requested, “Iqri’nee” hesitantly, about to faint, fearing the same would happen again, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled and affirmed him that he would not recite the Quran to him like Abu Bakr and Umar but would rather take him as a guest. However, the Messenger of Allah (s) commanded Abu Hurayrah to go and fetch all the As-haabus Suffah, Companions of the Verandah, the poorest of the residents of Madinah, eighty of them, for the meal at his home. So it was done. But what was there at the house of the Messenger of Allah (s)? What could anyone expect in that house of light but Barakah? It was but one small container of milk. Abu Hurayrah was worried he would not get any of the milk. He therefore queued first in the line, but the Prophet (s) gave the container to the others first. This is a recorded miracle of the Prophet (s) witnessed and experienced by all eighty of them that the container passed around and all of them drank from it and when it finally ended up in the hands of Abu Hurayrah, he too drank from it once, then the Prophet (s) told him to drink more and he too drank a second time and as the Prophet (s) told him to drink more he drank from it a third time. Finally, he could not drink a fourth time because he was already full and his stomach could not take anymore. But there was more milk in it.

By Allah, if the entire Madinah was there that day at the Prophet’s house, all of them would have drunk from it and milk would still have remained in the container. This is Barakah. So is the Quran. The Quran remains one Book but does flow infinitely. In fact, every verse of the Quran remains one but meanings flow infinitely because it is from Allah who is the Infinite.

There is not a single exegete (mufassir) of the Quran who would have dared say that he had already exhausted the full commentaries, interpretations and meanings of the Quran and that therefore nothing else could be added to them. That would reflect the meanings of the Quran as finite. How in that case could 20,000 Tafaaseer have been published so far on the meanings of the Quran? No one of the 20,000 different authors ever claimed that no one could add on to the commentary he had himself given and then put a full stop to the science of Tafseer. New knowledge comes out from the Quran and what meanings flow out from the Spring of the Quran – the Spring of Allah’s Kalam – has no limit. It continues and will continue forever till the Last Day.

]]> (Hasbullah Shafi’iy) Understanding Islam Fri, 02 Oct 2015 12:58:24 +0000 RESPONDING TO GAZZA  

27 Ramadaan 1435

Someone rewrote the Torah to declare that the Holy Land extends from the River of Egypt (i.e., the Nile) to the River Euphrates. This is false! Nabī Ibrahīm (Prophet Abraham) ('alaihi al-Salām) had to migrate from Babylon and travel a long distance in order to reach the Holy Land. Yet Babylon is included within the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land. Nabī Mūsa (Prophet Moses) ('alaihi al-Salām) also died in Sinai without ever having entered the Holy Land. And so, Sinai is not a part of the Holy Land. Yet Sinai is included in the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land.

The imposter State of Israel - imposter because it is not the Holy Israel of Nabī Dāūd (Prophet David) and Nabī Sulaimān (Prophet Soloman) ('alaihim al-Salām) - recognizes Gazza, as well as several other territories now populated by Arabs, to be a part of the Holy Land. The majority Israeli view is that those lands belong to the Israelite people since they are a part of the Holy Land, and that Israelites have a right to get rid of the Arabs now resident in their land.

The above is the briefest explanation possible for Israel's persistent barbaric wars designed to achieve the ethnic cleansing of Gazza so that the Israelites can recover their Gazza.

Is the Sunni Caliphate really restored in Iraq? A lamp provides light which allows us to see.alt

We can walk in a particular direction, for example, when we have a light with which to see.

Without the lamp, and without the light which it provides, we live in darkness, and hence, cannot see.

Most of mankind are today living in darkness and hence, although they have eyes, they yet cannot see. They live in darkness because there is no light from Allah in their hearts

What price do they pay for their blindness?

Allah Most Wise declared in the blessed Qur’an that He has adorned the lowest sky with ‘lamps’:


وَلَقَدْ زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاء الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيح........َ

And, indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lamps . . .

(Qur’an, al-Mulk, 67:5)

For those (and only those) who have the capacity to discover the relationships that exist between the stars, do the stars function as ‘lamps’ permitting ships for example, to chart a course in the vast expanse of the oceans of the world.

Similarly, only those who have the spiritual insight with which to ‘connect dots’ in history, will be able to read and understand events that are now mysteriously unfolding on the stage of the world. Those unable to do so will invariably respond to an articulation of such understanding with the intellectually tame and stereotyped cry of “conspiracy theory”. They will pay a price for their blindness and their incapacity to penetrate the explanation that the Qur’an provides of the reality of the world today, and for ignoring the several warning in the Qur’an, as well as concrete evidence in the Sīrah, of Jewish conspiracies against Islam and Muslims.

Ассаляму алейкум всем моим татарским братьям и сестрам в Исламе, живущим в Крыму.

Для вас сейчас наступил самый критический момент в истории.

Большевицкая революция 1917 года, принесшая коммунизм и безжалостный СССР, была спланирована и осуществлена русскими евреями-сионастами, принадлежащими к Гог и Магог.

Когда в 1944 году Сталин приказал несправедливо депортировать вас из родной Крымской земли в Сибирь и другие места, это были Гог и Магог, ответственные за тот этнический геноцид, а не русские.

Россия – это Рум, упомянутый в Коране в суре ар-Рум. Русская православная церковь также сильно пострадала от жестокого СССР.

После распада коммунизма и СССР, и после вашего возвращения в Крым, вы столкнулись со многими трудностями возврата вашего наследственного имущества, которое было оставлено во время депортации Сталиным.

Но сейчас для вас наступила возможность всей вашей жизни. Шанс, который больше не будет предоставлен. Вы имеете возможность в это воскресение проголосовать на референдуме в поддержку союза Крыма и России. Я призываю вас проголосовать на референдуме в поддержку этого союза. Если вы это сделаете, по всей вероятности, Россия и российское правительство, которые сейчас возвращаются к православному христианству (т.е. Рум, упомянутый в Коране), ответят положительно и с благодарностью и проследят, чтобы вы восстановили ваше наследственное имущество и продолжили жить в Крыму свободно и на правах, которые необходимы мусульманам для соблюдения веры в Аллаха и Его Посланника (мир ему и благословение Аллаха).

Пророк Мухаммад (мир ему и благословение Аллаха) предсказал, что мусульмане заключат союз с Румом в Последнюю Эпоху (Ахиру Заман), и для меня очевидно, что сейчас татарские мусульмане играют историческую роль в осуществлении этого пророчества.

Assalaamu ‘alaikum to you all, my Tatar brothers and sisters in Islam there in Crimea!

I write to you to advise you that your most critical moment in history has arrived.

The Bolshevic revolution of 1917, which delivered communism and the ruthless Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was planned and executed by Russian Zionist Jews who belonged to Gog and Magog.

When Stalin ordered in 1944 your unjust deportation out of your ancestral Crimean homeland to Siberia and elsewhere, it was Gog and Magog who were responsible for that ethnic genocide – and not the Russian people.

Russia is Rūm of the Qur’an, mentioned in Suratu Rūm. The Russian Orthodox Church also suffered tremendously from the ruthless USSR.

Since the collapse of communism and of the USSR, and since your return to Crimea, you have faced serious difficulties in recovering your ancestral properties which were left behind when you were deported by Stalin.

You now have an opportunity of a lifetime. This opportunity will not recur. You will have an opportunity this Sunday to vote in a referendum for Crimean union with Russia. I urge you to vote in favor of that union with Russia. If you do so, it is most likely that Russia and the Russian government, who are now returning to Orthodox Christianity (i.e., Rūm of the Qur’an), would respond positively and gratefully to ensure that you recover your ancestral properties and that you continue to reside in Crimea with the freedom and rights that Muslims need in order to be faithful to Allah and His Messenger (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) prophesied that Muslims will make an alliance with Rūm in Akhir al-Zamān, and it appears to me that Tatar Muslims now have a historic role to play in the fulfillment of that prophesy.

With love,

Your brother,

ISLAM, THE PETRO-DOLLAR AND BEYOND Our conference must ensure that we explain issues relating to ‘money’ in a manner that can be readily understood, not just by those present in this gathering here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but also by the hapless multitudes around the world who know little or nothing of this subject, and who look to us for guidance; hence an imperative of ensuring both simplicity and clarity, while avoiding the use of technical jargon. I avoid it to such an extent that those present in this audience will not hear even the words ‘fiat money’ in my presentation.alt

We must, however, provide an adequate explanation of the term ‘Petro-dollar’, since our view is that it is symbolically present in a Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon him) on which this paper is based. We must reveal the staggering role that it has played and still plays, in sustaining today’s unjust monetary system, as well as the equally unjust international banking system. Both the international monetary system and the international banking system are absolutely unique phenomena in human economic and monetary history. In other words no one in history has ever experienced the unique injustice and oppression that mankind now experiences in the worlds of money and banking. This, perhaps, explains the strange ignorance of the reality of modern money and banking.
Our view is that petro-money has an even more sinister role to play in the new monetary system that will emerge to replace the present one, consequent upon the imminent demise of the US dollar - but more about that later.

URGENT STATEMENT We are about to witness what we long anticipated, to wit: a Turkish-led NATO attack on Syria to remove the present Syrian regime and replace it, Libyan-style, with another so-called Islamic regime. How else will Israel be able to claim that a ‘rising Islam’ now menaces that country, and that Israel is being surrounded by that menacing Islam and must wage pre-emptive war in order to survive? How else will Israel be able to replace USA as the next ruling State in the world unless she wages great wars – particularly against her Arab neighbors who surround the Zionist State?

Turkey’s pro-NATO and hence pro-Zionist Government seems about to commit the ultimate act of foolishness in claiming the shooting-down of a Turkish warplane by Syria as causus bellum that justifies a Turkish military invasion of Syria. Such a Turkish military invasion of Syria would of course, have nothing to do with avenging the loss of an airplane and two pilots. Rather, it would have nothing less than Syrian regime-change as its primary objective.

That military adventure would be an act of supreme foolishness for the following reasons:

  1. Syria has been on a high alert for some time now expecting external intervention (Libyan-style) in support of a Zionist-engineered armed insurrection that has so far failed to take-over the country. A Turkish warplane that enters into Syrian airspace cannot expect, in such circumstances, to be treated as an innocent intruder. 
  2. If Russia and China respond to a Turkish military invasion of Syria by coming to the support of that country, that will eventually provoke the Malhama (great war) prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). That Malhama will be so great that it will make the first and second world-wars look like a fight over peanuts.
  3. The Turkish government should remember that the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) also prophesied that the Malhama or great war will lead to the conquest of Constantinople. It should not take Turkish Muslims long to realize that the 1453 conquest of Constantinople by Sultan Muhammad Fatih had nothing to do with the prophecy.  Turkish Muslims will then wake up to the monstrous betrayal of their pro-Zionist government and prepare for the civil war that will fulfill the prophecy.  
  4. Thus a Turkish military invasion of Syria will eventually lead to Turkish civil war and to the liberation of the city of Constantinople from NATO’s venomous control.
  5. Since Russia will inevitably enter in the war in defense of Syria, the Turkish military invasion of that country will lead to yet another prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) being fulfilled, to wit: “that you (Muslims) will make an alliance with Rum (pronounced as ‘room’).” Rum in the Qur’an referred to the Eastern Christian Byzantine Empire. But after Constantinople was conquered in 1453, the capital city of Rum eventually became Moscow.

This statement is issued to so guide Muslims that they may not be brainwashed by Protestant Islam’s Zionist Jihad, and by the inevitable CNN/Al-Jazeerah-led propaganda barrage that will now inundate mankind.

Madinah returns to the centre stage in Akhir al Zamaan Madinah 1343(H): Out Of Dajjal’s Ottoman Frying Pan and into Dajjal’s Saudi­-Wahhabi Fire
In just another 10 years from now in the month of Rabi al­Thani 1443 the world of Islam will mark the 100th anniversary of the transfer of power in Makkah from the Ottoman Turks to the Arab Sultan ‘Abd al­’Aziz Ibn Saud. Troops loyal to the Sultan of Najd conquered Makkah in the month of Rabi al­Thani 1343 (i.e., October 30th 1924 in Pope Gregory’s western Christian Catholic calendar) in consequence of which ‘Abd al­’Aziz eventually proclaimed himself Sultan of Najd and King of Hejaz.
In 10 years from now it will also be a hundred years since Makkah and Madinah were taken out of Dajjal’s Ottoman frying pan only to enter into Dajjal’s Saudi­-Wahhabi fire. Let there be no doubt in the reader’s mind that after having shamelessly aligned Saudi Arabia with the Zionist Anglo­American Judeo­Christian 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 Masih al ­Dajjal, i.e., Dajjal the false Messiah or Anti­-Christ. This is perhaps the implication of the vision in which Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) saw Dajjal making Tawaf around the Ka’aba. There is also considerable evidence that the Ottomans acted, consciously or unconsciously, on Dajjal’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 Rum. This was in accord with Dajjal’s agenda since it was western Christians who made an alliance with Jews, and it is that alliance which brought Israel into being. Rum 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 Rum who suffered so unjustly and for so long a period of time. Both the Ottoman State, as well as Saudi Arabia, mysteriously and wickedly disregarded the prophecy of the blessed Prophet that Muslims will make an End­Time alliance with eastern Christianity or Rum. Hence both the Ottomans as well as the Saudi­-Wahhabis rendered strategic assistance to Dajjal.
The Ottoman Empire conquered and occupied much of the Arab world – including the Hejaz – and succeeded in transferring the capital of the Khilafah (Caliphate) – for the first time ever – out of the Arab world to the former Christian Byzantine city of Constantinople in Euro­Asia. The Ottomans hardly had any credentials to rule over the heart­land of Islam. Yet, in accordance with Dajjal’s plan, they did so for more than 400 years until a European­engineered Arab Spring dismantled Ottoman rule, destroyed the institution of the Khilafah, and installed pro­western rulers over the Arabs (including the Hijaz). The destruction of the Khilafah and transfer of power to pro­western Arab rulers paved the way for a State of Israel to be successfully established in a Holy Land that was located in the very heart of the Arab world. Without 400 years of imperial Ottoman rule over the Arabs, followed by that ‘Arab Spring’, the Zionist State of Israel could never have been established. Sharif al-­Husain, the Ottoman­ appointed Arab Sharif of Makkah, did claim the Khilafah for himself, in response to the Turkish abolition of the Khilafah, but it was too late for an Arab Khilafah to be restored. Britain used ‘Abd al­’Aziz Ibn Saud to make short work of that short­lived Arab Khilafah and to then ensure that the Khilafah of Islam could never be restored so long as the Saudi­Wahhabis controlled the Hejaz. Husain had to flee, and the subsequent Saudi­Wahhabi rule over the Hejaz ensured (from a British view) that the Khilafah remained permanently buried – never to be restored (see my book entitled ‘The Caliphate the Hijaz and the Saudi­Wahhabi Nation­State’ on my website:

(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

“When you conquer Egypt be good to the Coptic (Christians) for they are your kith and kin.”(al-Baghawy, al-Tabarani, al-Hakim as narrated by K’ab bin Malik)

Both Islamic as well as Christian scholarship in Egypt should seek to discern the direction in which history is moving so that they can both pursue an effort for penetrating and understanding the reality which now confronts them.

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 al-Dajjāl, 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.

Both the Ottoman State, as well as Saudi Arabia, mysteriously and wickedly disregarded the prophecy of the blessed Prophet that Muslims will make an End-Time alliance with eastern Christianity or Rūm. Hence both the Ottomans as well as the Saudi-Wahhabis rendered strategic assistance to Dajjāl.

The Ottoman Empire conquered and occupied much of the Arab world – including the Hejāz – and succeeded in transferring the capital of the Khilāfah (Caliphate) – for the first time ever -  out of the Arab world to the former Christian Byzantine city of Constantinople in Euro-Asia. The Ottomans hardly had any credentials to rule over the heart-land of Islam. Yet, in accordance with Dajjāl’s plan, they did so for more than 400 years until a European-engineered Arab Spring dismantled Ottoman rule, destroyed the institution of the Khilāfah, and installed pro-western rulers over the Arabs (including the Hijāz). The destruction of the Khilāfah and transfer of power to pro-western Arab rulers paved the way for a State of Israel to be successfully established in a Holy Land that was located in the very heart of the Arab world. Without 400 years of imperial Ottoman rule over the Arabs, followed by that ‘Arab Spring’, the Zionist State of Israel could never have been established.

Sharīf al-Husain, the Ottoman-appointed Arab Sharīf of Makkah, did claim the Khilāfah for himself, in response to the Turkish abolition of the Khilāfah, but it was too late for an Arab Khilāfah to be restored. Britain used ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Ibn Saud to make short work of that short-lived Arab Khilāfah and to then ensure that the Khilāfah of Islam could never be restored so long as the Saudi-Wahhabis controlled the Hejāz. Husain had to flee, and the subsequent Saudi-Wahhabi rule over the Hejāz ensured (from a British view) that the Khilāfah remained permanently buried – never to be restored (see my book entitled ‘The Caliphate the Hijāz and the Saudi-Wahhabi Nation-State’ on my website:

For just over 400 years of Ottoman rule Makkah and Madinah remained gloriously restricted and cleverly suppressed as places of grand annual pilgrimages, without even a hint of these now-remote cities playing any other role in Islamic affairs. However when the Saudi-Wahhabis took over the Haramain al-Sharifain they launched a sinister effort to exploit the Hajj of 1344 to gain political and religious legitimacy in the world of Islam for their rule over the Hejāz and the Haramain. The effort failed. They then proceeded to exploit the city of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) for propagating an Islamic creed with a one-eyed epistemology that robbed Arab Islamic scholarship of spiritual insight (firāsah al-mu’min).  Madinah became a university town with an agenda of refashioning both Arab and non-Arab Islamic thought in such wise that scholars could ensure that the purest expression of Islam would prevail in Madinah. Instead, that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam produced Islamic scholars who could no longer distinguish between appearance and reality in matters pertaining to Dajjāl. As a consequence Saudi Arabia could bury the Khilāfah and continue to maintain fraternal ties with the Zionist West with no significant scholarly religious opposition. In fact, University scholars and students who dared to challenge the Saudi-Wahhabi agenda that has now culminated in secret alliance with Israel, could even lose their heads.


Jerusalem moves to center-stage

During these more than six centuries while Madinah remained a back-water town, and subsequently became a mournfully silent one-eyed university town, a Judeo-Christian Anglo-American alliance (which nurtured the Zionist Movement from its very birth) moved incrementally and successfully to take Jerusalem to center-stage in world affairs. Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) prophesied as much when he said:

عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عُمْرَانُ بَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ خَرَابُ يَثْرِبَ وَخَرَابُ يَثْرِبَ خُرُوجُ الْمَلْحَمَةِ وَخُرُوجُ الْمَلْحَمَةِ فَتْحُ قُسْطَنْطِينِيَّةَ وَفَتْحُ الْقُسْطَنْطِينِيَّةِ خُرُوجُ الدَّجَّالِ ثُمَّ ضَرَبَ بِيَدِهِ عَلَى فَخِذِ الَّذِي حَدَّثَهُ أَوْ مَنْكِبِهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ هَذَا لَحَقٌّ كَمَا أَنَّكَ هَاهُنَا أَوْ كَمَا أَنَّكَ قَاعِدٌ يَعْنِي مُعَاذَ بْنَ جَبَلٍ . (سنن أبي داود)

Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib (i.e., the city of Madinah) will be desolate; the desolate state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes; the outbreak of the great war will be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by) Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging). He (the Prophet) then he tapped with his hand the thigh or the shoulder of the one to whom he was talking and said: This is certainly true like you are (sitting) here (he meant Mu'aadh ibn Jabal).

(Sunan Abī Daūd)

Great wars will soon lead to the conquest of Constantinople

This essay presents a viewpoint that we are now located at that moment in time when Jerusalem is flourishing while Madinah, in comparison to Jerusalem, is in a state of silent mournful desolation - playing absolutely no role whatsoever in the affairs of either the world of Islam or the world at large. If this viewpoint is correct, then the implication would be that we can now expect great wars prophesied in the above Hadīth to soon commence. This writer expects those wars to commence within the next few months of the publication of this essay. Those wars will eventually provoke civil war in Turkey which, in turn, will result in the prophesied End-Time conquest of Constantinople in contra-distinction to the barbarous Ottoman conquest of the city that was disgraceful and an embarrassment to Islam. It is only after the coming Islamic conquest of Constantinople, at which time the Cathedral of Hagia Sophia will be returned to the Eastern Christianity with an apology and the city will recover the name of Constantinople, it is only then that ‘a day like a week’ will end (see Jerusalem in the Qur’an) and Dajjāl will appear in person while attempting to rule the world from Jerusalem (see above Hadīth).

It is difficult to anticipate how the Turkish civil war will take place. But it entirely possible that a Turkish military adventure into Syria to bring about such regime change as would advance the Zionist agenda, could provoke the Turkish Muslims to commence the effort to free Turkey from NATO’s venomous embrace. That effort can be assisted by Arab fighters flocking to Turkey from all over the Arab world.  The world can also witness fighters flowing into Turkey from Albania, Bosnia, Azerbaijan and other neighboring territories.

There are many who would argue that the prophecy concerning the conquest of Constantinople has already been fulfilled, and hence it is necessary for us to address the subject at some length.

Has the conquest of Constantinople already occurred?

The blessed Prophet was full of praise for the army that would accomplish that conquest, and for the Amīr who would command that army:

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : لتفتحن القسطنطينية فلنعم الأمير أميرها ولنعم الجيش ذلك الجيش  (روه الإمام أحمد في مسنده).

"Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will her leader be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!"

( Musnad, Imam Ahmad)

When secular Turkish nationalists conquered the city and proceeded to establish the modern secular Republic of Turkey in 1923, they chose Istanbul as the official name of the city and prohibited the use of the previous name or names; as a consequence the name ‘Constantinople’ has been receding from common vocabulary. Indeed it now appears to have entered into the museum of history.

Istanbul was not a new name. It was one of several names previously used for the city. However the name by which the city was best known was without doubt the name of Constantinople. And the prohibition of the use of any other name appears to have directed primarily against the use of that most well-known name. There is a reason why the name of the city was changed, and the use of other names prohibited, and this essay explains that reason.

It is commonly believed that this prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) was fulfilled in 1453 when the Ottoman Turks, under the command of the young Sultan Muhammad (Mehmet) Fatih, conquered Constantinople. However the hadīth quoted below makes it quite clear that the conquest will take place in Ākhir al-Zamān just prior to the appearance of the Anti-Christ (or al-Masīh al-Dajjāl) in person (i.e., in the form of a human being who would declare that he is the Messiah):

Narrated Mu'adhibnJabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) said: ……the outbreak of the great war will be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by) Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging). …….

(Sunan, AbīDaūd)

The essentially godless secular Turkish nationalists did not want Muslims to ever realize that the conquest of Constantinople prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwa salaam) had not as yet occurred, and was still to come; and that appears to be at least one of the reasons why they changed the name of the city. Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) used the name Constantinople (al-Konstantaniyyah in Arabic) when he prophesied about the city. He did not use any other name. Hence if that name were to be relegated to a museum, it was quite possible that Muslim attention would be diverted from the implications of the prophecy.

We pointed out earlier that we are now located at that moment in history when Jerusalem is flourishing while Madina is in a state of desolation. Hence it is clear that the world now stands on the brink of great wars which, in turn, will provoke the prophesied Muslim conquest of Constantinople. That Muslim conquest will not only liberate the city from godless nationalist Turkish rule, but also extricate and liberate the city from NATO’s venomous Zionist embrace.

In the unlikely event that further evidence is required to prove our thesis, we now present further evidence which prove beyond doubt that the 1453 Ottoman conquest of Constantinople could not have been the conquest prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam).

Consider the following:

The army that conquered Constantinople was comprised of several units. Some were volunteers who were attracted by the prospect of looting the city. Others were well-trained regular troops drawn from all parts of the Ottoman Empire. But at the heart of that Ottoman army was the best-trained elite unit of Janissaries. These were comprised of Christian children who were taken by force from their parents (in territories conquered by the Ottomans), and who were then converted to Islam by force and were given the best military training possible. They all owed their loyalty personally to the Sultan. Never in the history of Islam did Muslims ever disgrace Islam in such a way as to seize Christian children and convert them by force to Islam, and to then use them as such an elite fighting force that was supposed to be fighting in the name of Islam. This was manifestly sinful, monstrously embarrassing and a direct violation of Allah’s command in the Qur’an prohibiting conversion to Islam by force. The predictable result was to create eternal hatred and enmity for Islam and Muslims in the territories from which these Christian children were abducted. Those eastern Christian territories were precisely the Rūm concerning whom the Prophet prophesied that Muslims would enter into an End-Time alliance (i.e., with them).

When the Ottoman army broke through the defenses of the city and finally succeeded in entering the city as conquerors, what followed was “killing, looting, raping, burning and enslaving”. This may have been, and may still be the way that armies behave when they conquer a city, but this was not the way of Islam which enjoins respect and protection for the lives and honour of women, children, the elderly and those – like priests – whose lives are devoted to religion. Indeed there is evidence that even the Christian churches and monasteries were violated by the rampaging so-called Islamic army which broke in and proceeded to rape, plunder and kill even inside the church. The Sultan gave permission for this to continue, unrestricted by any ethical norms of warfare, for a period of three days. The Ottomans were unconcerned about the fact that Constantinople was the capital city of Byzantine Christianity (or Rūm). Such conduct on the part of the Ottoman army ensured eternal hatred for Islam in Byzantium.

But the conduct of the Sultan himself, as soon as he entered the city, was deplorable. He disgracefully and sinfully ordered that the great Byzantine Cathedral of Hagia Sophia which had been constructed 1000 years earlier by the Emperor Justinian, to be converted into a Masjid. When Muslims conquered Jerusalem at the time of the Khilāfah of Umar bin al-Kahttab, the Patriach of Jerusalem, Sophronius, refused to hand over the city to other than the Khalīfah himself. Umar had to travel from Madinah to Jerusalem to accept the keys to the city. While he was being escorted on a tour of the holy churches of Jerusalem the time for Salāt arrived and the Patriach graciously invited Umar to perform his Salāt right there in the Church of the Resurrection. Umar declined because he feared that it might constitute grounds for Muslims to subsequently convert the church to a Masjid.  The Ottoman conversion of Hagia Sophia to a Masjid was not an ordinary event. This was the greatest and most magnificent church in the entire Christian world. It had retained that position for 1000 years. In converting the church to a Masjid the Sultan not only embarrassed the world of Islam, but also drove a venomous knife into the very heart of eastern Byzantine Christianity that would never ever be forgotten. While others may convert churches, monasteries and even masājid (e.g. Cordoba) an Amīr who is personally praised by the Prophet himself cannot be expected to descend to that disgraceful standard of conduct.

We may note finally that Ottoman Sultans never married – because they did want to be encumbered with respect for legal rights which Islam gave to wives and to blood brothers (in matters pertaining to succession to leadership in a hereditary system of leadership). And so they restricted themselves to sleeping with slaves. Islam restricted a man to four wives, but there was no restriction as to how many female slaves he could own and with whom he could sleep. And so Ottoman Sultans had a stable of slaves referred to as the Harem. These women were almost exclusively taken from conquered Christian territories. They had no rights. The prophet of Islam had commanded: Give your slaves to eat the food that you yourself eat, and give them to wear the clothes that you yourself wear. Thus Islam restored the humanity of slaves and gave them rights. The Ottoman Sultans on the other hand, would sleep with a slave woman, and if she became pregnant and gave birth to a son, he would then terminate all sexual contact with her. He did this to ensure that she would have no more children, and hence no rivals to her son if he were ever to become Sultan himself. The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) declared that “marriage was a half of faith”. It is not at all possible that the blessed prophet would condone such conduct on the part of Ottoman Sultans.

It is clear to this writer that Sultan Muhammad Fatih could not qualify as the Amīr mentioned in the hadīth; nor could that Ottoman army which he led qualify as the army mentioned in the hadith. The implication is that the Muslim conquest of Istanbul or Constantinople is an event which is yet to occur.

The reader is encouraged to study the subject further and to then come to his own conclusion.

Madinah returns to center-stage

This essay presents arguments and evidence that Madinah will soon be liberated from being a back-water, silent Saudi-Wahhabi university town into a city that will dramatically occupy center-stage in the affairs of the world, and this should warm the hearts of Muslims around the world.

Central to this thesis is the End-Time prophecy that the Arabs will be destroyed by epidemics (formerly referred to as plagues):

عن عَوْف بْن مَالِكٍ قَالَ أَتَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي غَزْوَةِ تَبُوكَ وَهُوَ فِي قُبَّةٍ مِنْ أَدَمٍ فَقَالَ اعْدُدْ سِتًّا بَيْنَ يَدَيْ السَّاعَةِ مَوْتِي ثُمَّ فَتْحُ بَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ ثُمَّ مُوْتَانٌ يَأْخُذُ فِيكُمْ كَقُعَاصِ الْغَنَمِ ثُمَّ اسْتِفَاضَةُ الْمَالِ حَتَّى يُعْطَى الرَّجُلُ مِائَةَ دِينَارٍ فَيَظَلُّ سَاخِطًا ثُمَّ فِتْنَةٌ لَا يَبْقَى بَيْتٌ مِنْ الْعَرَبِ إِلَّا دَخَلَتْهُ ثُمَّ هُدْنَةٌ تَكُونُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَ بَنِي الْأَصْفَرِ فَيَغْدِرُونَ فَيَأْتُونَكُمْ تَحْتَ ثَمَانِينَ غَايَةً تَحْتَ كُلِّ غَايَةٍ اثْنَا عَشَرَ أَلْفًا (صحيح البخاري).

Narrated Auf bin Malik: I went to the Prophet during the Ghazwa of Tabūk while he was sitting in a leather tent. He said, "Count six signs that indicate the approach of the Hour: my death, the conquest of Jerusalem, a plague that will afflict you (and kill you in great numbers) as the plague that afflicts sheep, the increase of wealth to such an extent that even if one is given one hundred Dinārs, he will not be satisfied; then an affliction which no Arab house will escape, and then a Truce between you and Banū Al-Asfar who will betray you and attack you under eighty flags. Under each flag will be twelve thousand soldiers.

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَكُونُ فِتْنَةٌ تَسْتَنْظِفُ الْعَرَبُ قَتْلَاهَا فِي النَّارِ اللِّسَانُ فِيهَا أَشَدُّ مِنْ السَّيْفِ . (سنن الترمذي وسنن ابن ماجه)

Abdullah bin Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah said: "There will come a calamity which will wipe out the Arabs. Their slain will be in hell. The tongue will be more severe in this than the blow of the sword."

(Tirmīidhi, IbnMājah)

There is evidence that the present ‘Arab Spring’ which commenced more than one year ago, like the one which preceded it one hundred years before, was Judeo-Christian-European crafted, and is meant to prepare the way for an Arab slaughter which will facilitate the imposition of Israeli political and economic dominion over the Arabs.

It is almost certain that Zionists will soon wage biological war against the Arabs (on Dajjāl’s behalf) as prophesied by the Prophet, with which to bring about a substantial reduction in the population of the Arab world.

There are several Ahadīth which inform us that neither plague nor Dajjāl can enter Makkah and Madinah:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى أَنْقَابِ الْمَدِينَةِ مَلَائِكَةٌ لَا يَدْخُلُهَا الطَّاعُونُ وَلَا الدَّجَّالُ  (صحيح البخاري)

Abu Huraira(radiallahu 'anhu) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There are angels at the entrances of Madinah. Neither plagues nor Dajjāl shall enter it.

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

Our view, and Allah Knows best, is that this prophecy pertains to the biological attack on the Arabs that would be launched on Dajjāl’s behalf (hence the juxtaposition of plague with Dajjāl in the Hadīth).  Hence our conclusion is that Makkah and Madinah are destined to dramatically recover center-stage in Islamic and world affairs when the two cities provide dramatic and providential safety at that time when the biological attack on the Arabs is launched.

But Madinah, the university town with the purest expression of Saudi-Wahhabi Islam, is destined to play an even greater and more dramatic role in history, - a role that will be profoundly embarrassing for the Saudi-Wahhabi expression of Islam.

Madinah will eclipse Makkah at center-stage

It is not at all difficult for us to anticipate large-scale movement of Arabs to Makkah and Madinah as soon as Israel commences her great wars.  One can even expect that this essay might possibly provoke that movement to commence even before the wars begin. The Arabs will do so since they will be in a state of expectation of the epidemics that are prophesied to decimate or wipe out the Arabs. When Makkah and Madinah are over-flowing with Arabs seeking safety and refuge from death by plague, that mass gathering will surely provoke a spontaneous and volatile combustion between those with the chemical of faith in Islam in their hearts on the one hand, and those who serve Dajjāl on the other.

It is easy today to recognize those Arabs who serve Dajjāl since they are the ones who are shamelessly and sinfully supported the recent unjust NATO overthrow of the Libyan regime, and are now beating drums in support of an equally unjust Israeli/Turkish/NATO war on Syria and on Iran. They have forgotten that the Qur’an has prohibited Muslims from being friends and allies of a Judeo-Christian alliance (al-Maida 5:51) and has also prohibited unjust war while enjoining absolute justice!

The spontaneous combustion in Madinah is destined to lead to dramatic events with a potential to profoundly embarrass that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam. The Prophet prophesied the following:

عن أَنَس بْن مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَيْسَ مِنْ بَلَدٍ إِلَّا سَيَطَؤُهُ الدَّجَّالُ إِلَّا مَكَّةَ وَالْمَدِينَةَ لَيْسَ لَهُ مِنْ نِقَابِهَا نَقْبٌ إِلَّا عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ صَافِّينَ يَحْرُسُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَرْجُفُ الْمَدِينَةُ بِأَهْلِهَا ثَلَاثَ رَجَفَاتٍ فَيُخْرِجُ اللَّهُ كُلَّ كَافِرٍ وَمُنَافِقٍ . (صحيح البخاري)

AnasIbn Malik (radiallahu 'anhu) said: The Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There is no town that Dajjāl will not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in rows. Then, Madinah will quake with its people three times, and then Allah will bring out of it every kāfir and munāfiq (hypocrite).

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

قَالَ أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيْسَ مِنْ بَلَدٍ إِلَّا سَيَطَؤُهُ الدَّجَّالُ إِلَّا مَكَّةَ وَالْمَدِينَةَ وَلَيْسَ نَقْبٌ مِنْ أَنْقَابِهَا إِلَّا عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ صَافِّينَ تَحْرُسُهَا فَيَنْزِلُ بِالسِّبْخَةِ فَتَرْجُفُ الْمَدِينَةُ ثَلَاثَ رَجَفَاتٍ يَخْرُجُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْهَا كُلُّ كَافِرٍ وَمُنَافِقٍ . ورواية مماثلة بنفس الإسناد غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ فَيَأْتِي سِبْخَةَ الْجُرُفِ فَيَضْرِبُ رِوَاقَهُ وَقَالَ فَيَخْرُجُ إِلَيْهِ كُلُّ مُنَافِقٍ وَمُنَافِقَةٍ . (صحيح مسلم)

AnasIbn Malik said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There is no town that Dajjāl will not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in rows. Dajjāl will camp at a salty barren area, then Madinah will shake three times, and then every kāfir and munāfiq (hypocrite) will come out of it to join him. In a similar narration with the same final chain of transmission, he says instead: He shall come to the barren salty area of Juruf and set up his camp. And he also said: And then every male and female hypocrite will come out to join him.

(Sahīh Muslim)

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَأْتِي الْمَسِيحُ مِنْ قِبَلِ الْمَشْرِقِ هِمَّتُهُ الْمَدِينَةُ حَتَّى يَنْزِلَ دُبُرَ أُحُدٍ ثُمَّ تَصْرِفُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَجْهَهُ قِبَلَ الشَّامِ وَهُنَالِكَ يَهْلِكُ . (صحيح مسلم)

Abu Huraira said: The Messenger of Allah sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam said: The False Messiah will come from the east, intending to go to Medina, until he encamps behind Uhud. Then, angels will divert his face (his direction) toward Shām (The North, i.e., Greater Syria), and there he dies.

(Sahīh Muslim)

These Ahadīth indicate that Israel will eventually attack the Hijāz. At that time Dajjāl will be the leader of the Jewish State. Perhaps the Israeli forces will launch that attack because of the belief that Madinah is a part of the Holy Land (since the Jews lived in Madina for a long time).

When Israeli forces land outside Madinah, every supporter of the Zionists will leave the city to join the Israelis. The three times that Madinah will shake (resulting in the city being emptied of all Kuffāror disbelievers and Munāfiqūn or hypocrites) could, perhaps, represent three revolutionary Islamic uprisings that would send tremors around the world.

In addition of course, there is also the well-known phenomenon of ‘rats leaving a sinking ship’. But this ship would not sink. Instead the angels would then divert the Israeli attack to Damascus and it would be at that time that Nabi ‘Isa(‘alaihi al-Salām) the true Messiah would dramatically descend to kill Dajjāl the false Messiah.

It should please the heart of every sincere Muslim that the city of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) is destined to play such a dramatic and strategic role in Ākhir al-Zamān when it returns to center-stage in both International and Islamic Affairs to separate those who remain faithful to Islam from those who have become Kuffār and Munāfiqūn while serving the Anglo-American Judeo-Christian Zionist alliance.  How wonderful it would be on that day for the world to witness the angels purifying and defending the city of the blessed Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) and diverting the Israeli attack to Damascus. One can only wonder how many scholars – if any - would be left in the Saudi-controlled Islamic University of Madinah after Madinah has shaken three times! May Allah guide and strengthen the sincere scholars of Islam in Saudi Arabia to rise up before Madinah shakes three times. Amīn!

 “The Days of Allah” and Qur’anic Thought

When Almighty Allah (SWT) sent Musa (AS) with His ayaat (Signs or Proofs), He sent him with the specific mission of extricating his people, i.e., the Israelites or Banu Israel, from the darkness of ignorance into the light of Truth. In order that this objective be successfully pursued, Allah (SWT) further ordered Musa (s) as follows:

{quran 14:5}
And remind them of the Days of Allah (Surah Ibrahim: 14:5).

The “Days of Allah” are the historical landmarks which reveal the movement of the Truth in history. Time and again, in the historical process, Truth triumphs over its rivals and, according to Dr. Burhan Ahmad Faruqi, the direction of the movement of history is thus restored, time and again, to that of Sirat Al-Mustaqeem (the Straight Path). Qur’anic thought is that thought which penetrates the Qur’an with such creative insight as permits the thinker not only to discern the landmarks which constitute the “Days of Allah” in post-Qur’anic history (i.e., history since the revelation of the Qur’an), but also to understand the process of the movement of Truth in history and thus to penetrate and understand the true nature of the age in which he lives.

There is every reason for this to be the objective, since all major western powers are heavily lobbied by Pro-Zionist Power Block that control a hefty chunk of the wealth that circulates in the western world. The power of the Pro-Zionist Block in the western world has been aptly demonstrated by the U.S Housing Market crash in 2008, the Sovereign Debt of Major European countries in 2011, the staggering Gold Appreciation which is currently at $1662/Troy Oz (£1016/Troy Oz), U.S Debt Ceiling fiasco (July 2011) and Credit Rating Firms sudden rise to prominence (2011).

The Pro-Zionist Block views Pakistan as the only credible threat to the existence to the State of Israel. This threat assessment seems a bit disconnected however, since Pakistan doesn't have any direct border with Israel, nor is Pakistan in the same region as Israel. So why is it, that Pakistan is viewed by the Pro-Zionist Block as the most deadly threat to Israel's existence and what is it that Israel has or would done/do to warrant any aggression from Pakistan. The answer is, nothing .... so far! Pakistan has no direct or indirect aggression toward Israel, however, there is something that Israel will do in the future which will provoke Pakistan.

FURTHER LESSONS FROM THE ZIONIST ATTACK ON LIBYA Explaining this lesson one more time

It is so sad that the few critics who commented negatively on my last essay on Libya studiously avoided commenting on or responding to my most serious charge against those Muslims who participated in/supported the well-armed and long-planned insurrection that toppled the Libyan government in the capital city of Tripoli.

I brought to public attention Allah’s command in the Qur’ān which sternly prohibited Muslims from entering into precisely that alliance with NATO with which those misguided Muslims were eventually able to achieve their immediate objective in Libya of seizing the capital city of Tripoli and then claiming recognition as the new government:

{يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ}

“O you who have faith (in Allah) do not take (such) Jews and (such) Christians as your friends and allies who themselves are friends and allies of each other. And whoever from amongst you turns to them (for friendship and alliance) now belong to them (and not to us). Surely Allah does not guide a wicked people.”

(Qur’ān, al-Māida, 5:51)

They must know that the Qur’an does not here refer to individual friendship between a Jew and a Christian.  Rather, the Qur’an anticipated more than 1400 years ago the mysterious reconciliation that was forged between most European Christians and European Jews - a reconciliation in which the Vatican played a strategically important role by way of exonerating Jews from responsibility for the crucifixion of Jesus the true Messiah (‘alaihi al-Salām).

As recently as a few months ago Pope Benedict released a new book in which he cleverly argued that “there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death”.  How could the Jewish people as a whole bear responsibility for the crucifixion when there were many Jews who accepted Jesus as the Messiah and hence had no part in the demand for his crucifixion? Did they cease to be Jews when they believed in Jesus as the promised Messiah? ]]> (Imran Nazar Hosein) Islam and Politics Tue, 13 Sep 2011 07:34:58 +0000
