My beloved daughters,
This morning, after my tahajjud, the following questions crossed my mind: With all the ongoing wars against Islam, what will, in the end, happen to Islam? Will Islam vanish from the face of this earth? I recalled you had asked these questions before.
I browsed at my bookshelves and picked up this book by Imran N. Hossein entitled “Jerusalem in the Qur’an: An Islamic View of the Destiny of Jerusalem.” I then browsed the book. It has fifteen chapters. I recalled I have read it before, some years ago. But, I must read it again to see if I can find answers to the questions. After looking at the Table of Contents, I zoomed to Chapter 13 entitled “The Qur’an and the Destiny of Jerusalem.” I read it again and again, not less than three times, and discovered that, indeed, the answers to the mind-boggling questions are there in the Chapter.
On page 166, paragraph 2, the author says that: “When ya’juj and ma’juj are destroyed, the dominant ‘white world order’ will crumble and the modern world of scientific and technological wonders will collapse. This book anticipates that, that event is not more than another fifty years away. It is at that time that the Muslim army would emerge from Khorasan and would then face the Jews on a level battle field.”
My beloved daughters,
Fifty years are not really far away. But, in fifty years, if we ever live that long, your mom and I will be 106 and 108 years old. I think there is no chance for us to witness the unfolding of that event. But, the chance for you – all of you are now in your twenties or younger, and by then, you will be in your seventies – to celebrate the victory of Islam in your lifetime is there. Most certainly, however, that era belongs to your children and grandchildren.
Where is Khorasan? It is an area which is now included in Afghanistan, Pakistan, a little in Iran and Central Asia. No wonder the ‘white world order’ is doing all it can to put this area and its people under its control and subjugation. It is the base of the prophesied Muslim army. The invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq and perhaps, next, Iran and Pakistan, is a critical component of this global “search and destroy” mission aimed at nipping in the bud the emergence of any resemblance of that prophesied Muslim army.
The ‘white world order’ thought of preempting the emergence and consolidation of that Muslim army but it certainly cannot go against the will of Allah that the day will come for the battalions of that Muslim army to emerge, who, by Allah’s will, will free Jerusalem and its people, take over the illegal State of Israel and pave the way for the establishment of Islamic world order. After all, many signs of the Hour have already emerged. The enemies of Islam plot and Allah plots too, but Allah’s plot is the best of all plots.
That, the day will come when Muslims would fight the Jews and would be victorious is mentioned in the Prophet’s Traditions:
“You will surely fight the Jews and you will surely kill them. (And this will continue) until (even) the stones will speak (saying): Oh Muslims! There is Jew hiding behind me, so come and kill him.” (Bukhari).Abu Hurairah RA narrated that Allah Messenger SAW said: “The Last Hour would not come unless the Muslims fight against the Jews. The Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: O Muslim or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say (such) for it is the tree of the Jews.” (Muslim).
Islam will rule the world within fifty years and Jerusalem will be the capital of the Islamic state. That is clearly said by Imran N. Hossein in his book. That is his ijtihad. Why fifty years? The following is his justification:
“The Qur’an has clearly established a destiny of Jerusalem that would witness Muslims resuming their rule over Jerusalem – a rule that began shortly after the death of the Prophet SAW and which continued uninterruptedly for a few hundred years. When the European Christian crusaders conquered Jerusalem, they were allowed a brief rule of about eighty years before the destiny of Jerusalem prevailed. A Muslim army defeated the Crusaders and the rule of Muslims over the Holy Land was resumed. Again, it continued uninterruptedly for a few hundred years until the moment arrived when, by divine plan, the Jews were to be brought back to the Holy Land. It is hardly likely that the present Jewish rule, like the Crusader European rule before it, would last for more than eighty years, and Allah knows best. A Muslim army will then defeat the Jews and Muslim rule will be restored.” (para. 2, p. 162).
The State of Israel was established in 1948. Hence, about 63 years have since past. Taking Imran N. Hossein’s statement that “It is hardly likely that the present Jewish rule, like the Crusader European rule before it, would last for more than eighty years, and Allah knows best,” then, the State of Israel will only exists for another 15-20 years.
Hence, if Imran N. Hossein’s ijtihad that Muslim rule will be restored with Jerusalem as its capital within fifty years is credible, then, the victory of Islam is so near, within the life span of many of us who are still alive today and that, the battalions of that “Muslim army” with “black banners” must have already been in existence by now.
My beloved daughters,
Who is this prophesied Muslim army? Based on the hadiths, it is safe to say that this army would come from Khorasan. Today, in Khorasan, there are battalions and battalions of non-Muslim army. The ‘white world order’-supported governments of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asian States too, have their own army. Those battalions of non-Muslim army and armed forces of the said governments are joining hands in fighting a “war on terrorism.” They say the terrorists are “Muslim extremists” who, through violent way, want to establish the Islamic State against the will of the “civilized people.” To the “white world order,” this is unacceptable and therefore, the “Muslim extremists” must be wiped out from the face of the earth by all means, at any cost.
As the “war on terrorism” targets mainly the Al Qaeda and groups linked to it throughout the world and the Afghani and Pakistani Talibans, one may ask: Could it be said that in the mind of the “white world order,” these “terrorists” are indeed the prophesied Muslim army?
The possibility that the answer is “yes” is great. Otherwise, the ‘white world order’ army will not have any business to do in places where the Al Qaeda and groups linked to it are active. However, if the negative characterization of the Al Qaeda and groups linked to it throughout the world and the Afghani and Pakistani Talibans – they are violent, they kill innocent women, children and old people and they destroy places of worship and public amenities – is true, then, certainly they are not the prophesied Muslim army. They are terrorists and should be fought against.
Hence, if the “white world order” is working on stopping the emergence of that prophesied Muslim army, it is indeed barking at wrong trees. In any case, that prophesied Muslim army is so strong that “no force can beat them.” Has the prophesied Muslim army already emerged on the face of this earth? Only Allah knows.
I assume the prophesied Muslim army must be, at least, like the legendry army of Salahuddin Al-Ayubbi who were well-trained, well-equipped and highly disciplined and who had never let a night past without performing the tahajjud prayer and reading the Holy Qur’an. As characterized by the hadiths, the prophesied Muslim army is a force that “no other force will be able to stop them.” The Al Qaeda and groups linked to it throughout the world and the Afghani and Pakistani Talibans are poor in everything – poorly equipped, poorly trained, poorly disciplined and poorly organized and are no match to the mighty “white world order” army. Hence, the existence of that prophesied Muslim army at this stage is still imaginary or if it has already emerged, it is still in the formation stage and not yet ready to march to Jerusalem. Allah knows best.
My beloved daughters,
The Jews claim that they are God-chosen people and the Holy Land of Jerusalem and “every spot on which their foot treads” are their God-promised land. Let them be with their claim. It is the Qur’an that every Muslim must believe, not what the Jews claim. And, the Qur’an says that the Holy Land is a promised land for those who “believe in Islam and righteous in conduct.”
Here is what the Qur’an declares:
“Allah has promised to those among you who believe (in Islam) and are righteous in conduct that He will surely cause them to inherit the land (i.e., the Holy Land), as He granted it to those before them (i.e., the Jews); that He will establish their religion (i.e., Islam) in authority (in the Holy Land), the (religion) which He has chosen for them and that He will change (their state) after the fear in which they (lived) to one of security and peace. They will worship Me (alone) and not associated aught with Me. If they do reject faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.” (Qur’an, Al-Nur, 24:55).
Hence, the Qur’an makes clear that the Muslims who will participate in the coming inheritance of the Holy Land are those who worship Allah alone and who do not commit shirk. And most certainly, non-Muslims, Jews and Christian included, are not the ultimate inheritors of the Holy Land. It further means that Israel rule over Jerusalem will definitely come to an end.
This promise of the Qur’an is also echoed by the Prophet (s) in the following hadith:
“Abu Hurairah narrated that the Holy Prophet SAW said: Black banners shall emerge from Khorasan and no force will be able to stop them until they are inserted in Aelia (Jerusalem).” (Sunan Tirmidhi).
Imran N. Hossein describes in his book the sequence of events that leads to the ultimate reestablishment of Islamic rule in the world as follows:
“It is the destiny of Jerusalem that a Muslim army would destroy the State of Israel and the Messiah (Jesus the son of Mary) would then rule over mankind from Jerusalem as a Just Ruler. Jesus, the Messiah AS, would rule the world from the Islamic State that would now be established in the Holy Land in place of the imposter Zionist Jewish State of Israel.
It is also the destiny of Jerusalem that before the above can occur, the Jewish State of Israel must become the ruling state of the world. Israel would rule the world for a period of a day that would be like a week. At the end of that period of awesome oppression, the false Messiah would then himself appear with a day like our day. At that time the water in the Sea of Galillee would have dried up. Dajjal would rule the world from Jerusalem and so fulfill his mission of impersonating the true Messiah. After Dajjal appears in person, it is then that Imam Mahdi will appear.” (paragraphs 2 and 3, page 165).
I suppose, his explanation of the events is related to the following hadith of the Prophet SAW:
“Prophet Muhammad SAW said: Prophethood will last among you as long as Allah wishes it to last, and then Allah will raise it. Afterwards, there will be the Khalifah according the way of the Prophethood as long as Allah wishes it to last, then Allah will raise it. Afterwards, there will be hereditary rule (by consent) and it will last as long as Allah wishes it to last. Afterwards, there will biting oppression and it will last as long as Allah wishes it to last. Afterwards, there will be a Khalifah according to the way of the Prophethood and then, the Prophet SAW was silent.” (Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal).
My beloved daughters,
History has already validated the major parts of the prophecy. First, the rule according to the way of the Prophethood of Muhammad SAW ended following his death in 632 AD. Second, the rule of the Khalifah Al Rashidin ended in 661 AD. Third, the hereditary rule of the Dynasties of Muawiyyah, Abbasiyyah and Othmaniah, among others, ended in 1924 AD and since then till presently, the world is dominated by the ‘white world order’ and the nations of the Muslims, which had lost much of their Islamic characters after a long period of ‘white world order’ colonial rule, are ruled by oppressive regimes and in many other parts of the world, Muslim minorities are subjected to all kinds of ill-treatment simply because they are Muslims.
Next, according to the prophecy, will come again the rule of the “Khalifah according the way of the Prophethood.” This is the time when Jesus AS will descend from heavens to become the Khalifah of the Islamic State that will rule the world from Jerusalem.
At the time of his descend, Dajjal, the false Messiah, is wreaking havoc in the world and Imam Mahdi and the Muslim army are in full-swing war against the Dajjal. Jesus AS will join the war and it is Jesus AS who will finally kill Dajjal. With that event, the imposter Zionist Jewish State of Israel and its rule over the world will come to an end. Justice is established for the whole of mankind and prosperity returns to the world. Islam is victorious again.
You ought to know that the Jewish Rabbis, Christian Priests and Western Orientalists are only too familiar with every single verse and hadith mentioned herein and for that matter, the whole Qur’an and hadiths. They know them by the back of their palms and are fully aware of the truth but they choose to use their knowledge of the Qur’an and hadiths to plot against Islam. They boast: “We listen but we will not obey.” They know the future is Islam. It is unfortunate that they have taken Islam as their enemy till death. We Muslims ought to be aware that today’s “war on terrorism” is indeed a thinly veiled “war on the Islamic faith.” Everybody knows that.
So, my beloved daughters: La tahzan. Don’t worry. Be steadfast in your religion and put your full faith in the promise of Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
