THE RITES OF AL ISLAM

FORWARD

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues at


Al Azhar University for putting up with me during those
grueling years of study in Cairo. Special thanks to Mr. Gomma
Mahdi, Sheik Mahmood from Shuhadda, Dr. Saeed from
Boosna Masjid, the every inspiring Muhammad Asaad,
Muhammad Luhadain, Leo Zagami, and the many adepts of
wisdom that I have crossed paths with over the years. Stone
sharpens stone, as the saying goes. My adventure into Islam
started some 6 years ago when I bought my first copy of AL-
Quran from a local bookstore and started whole heartedly
studying the intricacies of this religion and the
sayings or (hadiths) of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS).
Growing up in a Christian family, I was ritualistically
implanted with the ideas of inherent sin at birth, salvation from
belief in Jesus Christ, Communion, and the congregational
favorite, Baptism. I spent the years in my early twenties
devouring hundreds of books on spiritualism, science,
theology, etymology, Apocrypha, Freemasonry, and the list
goes on and on. My grandfather being a 33 degree freemason
raised my eyebrows to the possibility
of a deeper knowledge existing pertaining to the mind and
spirit of man. After gaining access to the inner circles and
keepings of Freemasonry I turned my studies to medicine and
wittingly went back to school to study pharmaceuticals. What
I found out during this period of time was appalling and
disheartening to say the least. I honorably walked away from
this career choice after investing a whole year into the study of
medicine and pharmacology. What I found out was not with
out good merit and fortune. My own health was hanging in the
balances and I used the information that I had come across
during my homeopathic research (ORMUS, Trace Minerals,
Polysaccharides, Aloe Vera, Macrobiotics) to heal my
lymphatic irregularities. Then after the horrific incident of
911 I began to see a lot of information streaming through the
media about Islam. I can still remember seeing images of
grown men with their children prostrating in prayer, and how
perfect it looked as they bowed and prayed in unison. How
could it be that a religion apparently so beautiful and aesthetic
could manifest such unconscientious acts of murder? It was an
itch I had to scratch as I consumed the whole Quran 2 times in
2 weeks, and began intense research into the sayings of the
Prophet Muhammad ( Ahadith). I would find all the answers I
was looking for, and much, much more. This book is a inside
look of what I have found throughout my past 6 years since
converting to Islam. Topics range from the nature of GOD,
Purpose, Self Knowledge, Medicine, the true nature of Magic,
Psychology, and some of mysteries such as REX MUNDI (The
Green Man) Wisdom of Aesop, Unknown facts about the Anti
Christ, and Judgment day, The nature of the Beast, Gog and
Magoog, and the Wisdom of the Great King Solomon. This
book solves the problem of the Christian Trinity, and the nature
of Jesus Christ himself. I was recently talking to my mother,
who is still a Christian, and she told me about how she had
gone to so many counseling sessions with so many
Psychologist to help resolve so many of the family problems
and character issues of my step father, and my half brothers
and sisters. I told my mother that in the Arab world, for the
Muslims, there doesn't exist such an idea of going to see a
psychologist to help remedy the problems. These problems are
all addressed through the hadith of the prophet Muhammad (
SAWS). If your a person that wishes to take a chance and read
a book that might really challenge your belief system, and are
open to bettering your life, then this book is for you. I present
to you at this time, THE RITE OF ISLAM.

QURAN Chapter 41 verse 53:

Soon we shall show them our signs,


in the horizons and inside their own self (souls),
until it becomes clear to them that He is the Truth (GOD).

Chapter One- TAWHEED ONENESS OF
THE G.A.O.T.U (Great Architect of the
Universe)

The first and most important concept in ISLAM


is what we call the TAWHEED.
This can be translated to co notate the ONENESS
of GOD. This is fundamentally the
most important component of the ISLAMIC
faith. The idea of one universal creator is
no new philosophic postulation. The reason that
this concept is so important and stands as the
backbone for monotheistic religions is evident. It
simply cuts through the fat of the vast
superstitious ideas and imaginations of
purported gurus, and masters that lay claim to
the possession of power through omens, objects
and things that has been created. One thing that
is for sure is that no man has the power to create
something from nothing. Granted, we can take
DNA splice it up, alter living things, and
manipulate things within certain scientific
parameters. Though there are claims that we
have broken the codes to the human genome,
and now possess the keys to immortality, we have
yet to see any workable methods to extent our
lifespan indefinitely. The science community
may stand on the precipice of something big in
the near future, but we would all agree
that mans life is limited, and that there must be a
purpose in the grand scheme of things.
Before we start to get deep into the ideas of the
nature of GOD and his endless attributes,
we must first come to grips with the great
etymological problems that we are confronted
with when we say the word, "GOD." To address
any problem we must first go to the source of the
matter and peal away the labels in order to get to
the core of the onion. It might make us upset,
and we may cry from the stinging layers and
spores of truth that reach our eyesight, but it is a
reoccurring
issue that should be cleared up once and for all.
Any one that has tried to confront this GIANT of
a question has probably read vast volumes of
ancient history books, and turned to experts like
Zachariah Sitchen and his Earth Chronicles
series. We now have
many theories on just what took place during the
dawn of mankind. I will not try to recap the
intricate translations and variations that I have
come across during the years, but will rather lay
out the cards in front of you, in hopes of exposing
some of the aces.

In hopes of defusing some of the ignorant


misconceptions that I have heard over the
years that Muslims don't worship the same GOD
that the Christians, and Jews worship,
I will dedicate a few paragraphs to this subject to
make sure that we are all working on the same
playing field. Muslims call GOD (ALLAH). There
are also other variations such as (ILAH) or (IL).
As most people know the Arabic and Hebrew
languages work off of root letters in forming their
words. The
vowels are not written in most cases, but are
known by the reader. Now in the Hebrew
language we have (EL) or (ELOHIIM) etc. The
Messiah Jesus Christ used the Arabic variation
since he spoke in the native Aramaic language,
which is the father of the now Arabic language.
Coptic Egyptian Christians in Cairo call GOD
(ALLAH). We can see clearly that (EL) in the
Hebrew language and (IL) from
the Aramaic language are the correct names of
GOD according to the ancient scriptures in the
simplest form. Of course we have YAWEH as
the tetragamatron. This word correctly translated
means, ( I am that I am, or
I am that I want to be.) This word has let many
Christians into much confusion and should be
studied closely so as not to misconstrue the
meaning of this phrase.

Now we have to answer the question- where


does the word GOD come from? I have heard
from some inner Masonic circles that it is a
acronym for three words. Gomo Oz Dubaz
(Beauty, Knowledge, and Power).
This word was made up for the English language
so that the universal idea of One GOD could be
implemented easily into our language.

Etymology of the Word "God"


(Anglo-Saxon God; German Gott; akin to Persian khoda; Hindu
khooda).
God can variously be defined as:
the proper name of the one Supreme and Infinite Personal Being,
the Creator and Ruler of the universe, to whom man
owes obedience and worship;
the common or generic name of the several supposed beings to
whom, in polytheistic religions, Divine attributes are
ascribed and Divine worship rendered;
the name sometimes applied to an idol as the image or dwelling-
place of a god.
The root-meaning of the name (from Gothic root gheu; Sanskrit hub
or emu, "to invoke or to sacrifice to") is
either "the one invoked" or "the one sacrificed to." From different
Indo-Germanic roots (div, "to shine"
or "give light"; thes in thessasthai "to implore") come the Indo-
Iranian deva, Sanskrit dyaus
(gen. divas), Latin deus, Greek theos, Irish and Gaelic dia, all of
which are generic names; also Greek Zeus
(gen. Dios, Latin Jupiter (jovpater), Old Teutonic Tiu or Tiw
(surviving in Tuesday), Latin Janus, Diana, and
other proper names of pagan deities. The common name most
widely used in Semitic occurs as 'el in Hebrew, 'ilu in
Babylonian, 'ilah in Arabic, etc.; and though scholars are not
agreed on the point, the root-meaning most probably
is "the strong or mighty one."
"god (g?d). Also 3-4 godd. [Com. Teut.: OE. god (masc. in sing.; pl.
godu, godo neut., godas masc.) corresponds to
OFris., OS., Du. god masc., OHG. got, cot (MHG. got, mod.Ger. gott)
masc., ON. go , gu neut. and masc., pl. go , gu neut.
(later Icel. pl. gu ir masc.; Sw., Da. gud), Goth. gu‫( ق‬masc. in
sing.; pl. gu‫ق‬a, guda neut.). The Goth. and ON. words
always follow the neuter declension, though when used in the
Christian sense they are syntactically masc. The OTeut. type
is therefore *gu?om neut., the adoption of the masculine concord
being presumably due to the Christian use of the word.
The neuter sb., in its original heathen use, would answer rather to
L. numen than to L. deus. Another approximate
equivalent of deus in OTeut. was *ansu-z (Goth. in latinized pl. form
anses, ON. ?ss, OE. ‫س‬s- in personal names, ésa genit.
pl.); but this seems to have been applied only to the higher deities of
the native pantheon, never to foreign gods; and
it never came into Christian use.
The ulterior etymology is disputed. Apart from the unlikely
hypothesis of adoption from some foreign tongue, the OTeut.
*gubom implies as its pre-Teut. type either *ghudho-m or *ghut -
m. The former does not appear to admit of explanation; but
the latter would represent the neut. of the passive pple. of a root
*gheu-. There are two Aryan roots of the required
form (both *glheu, with palatal aspirate): one meaning ‘to invoke’
(Skr. h?), the other ‘to pour, to offer sacrifice’
(Skr. hu, Gr. ?????, OE. yéotan YETE v.). Hence *glhut -m has
been variously interpreted as ‘what is invoked’
(cf. Skr. puru-h?ta ‘much-invoked’, an epithet of Indra) and as ‘what
is worshipped by sacrifice’
(cf. Skr. hut‫ل‬, which occurs in the sense ‘sacrificed to’ as well as in
that of ‘offered in sacrifice’).
Either of these conjectures is fairly plausible, as they both yield a
sense practically coincident with the most
obvious definition deducible from the actual use of the word, ‘an
object of worship’.
Some scholars, accepting the derivation from the root *glheu- to
pour, have supposed the etymological sense to be
‘molten image’ (= Gr. ?????), but the assumed development of
meaning seems very unlikely.

There is one more fine point to touch on before


we proceed into the importance of the Tawheed
and the Wisdom of this concept in the Islamic
faith. Those ancient beings from Samaria
seemingly had vast knowledge
and long life spans, according to the findings of
the scholar Zachariah Sitchen. These beings
called Anunnaki, or the Nephilam Giants (those
that fell to the earth) were mentioned in the story
of Genesis and also vast
clay tablets that have been translated from the
cuneiform language. These beings were seen as
supermen and told stories of genetic alterations
to create slave men for the need of mining earth
gold for their planet
Niburu. The two primary chieftain Annunaki
were Enki and Enlil. Many scholars have made
them out to be Enlil (EL) and Enki (The One that
genetically altered men in the Eden, and was
known by the sign of the
winding serpent or the double helix.) These
stories are staggering to the intellect and could
easily lead one to believe that Mankind was
created by Enki, and was ruled by Enlil (EL) and
their ruler ANU. As more and more of the
Anunnaki race from Sumer inhabited the earth
and cohabited with humans, they became
to be seen as GODS to the people and were
worshipped by the common people at that time.
Now the question stands- was the EL from the
Annunaki the same EL from the stories of Noah,
Abraham, Moses, and Solomon.
The answer is simply NO HE IS NOT. The
reason is logical, and also some proofs have been
put forth. Firstly, the
Annunaki lived by laws and worshipped One
Universal God. Secondly, they were able to come
to earth, and alter the matter that was there in
front of them, such as the Apes and Primitive
species. They had great powers and
were referred as the RENOWNED GREAT MEN
OF OLD in the book of Genesis. In the book of
PSLAMS a verse to DAVID and SOLOMON at
that time reads, " I am the GOD of the GODS,"
and, "They shall be judged
as mere men on the day of Judgment." Some
may ask, "why would GOD point out this verse to
us since it is obvious that there could only be
ONE ALMIGHTY CREATOR?" The answer is
that the people at that time were still paying
tribute to the Annunaki and their lineage's,
worshipping them as GOD. From a normal
mans perspective these beings could do
supernatural things. They had flying machines,
advancements in computer devices and
weaponry, and the ability to outlive any homo
sapiens in existence at that time. Then how did
the men of old live so long such as Methuselah
and the early offspring of ADAM? Genesis tells
us that
these Annunaki took wives amongst the offspring
of early man and they had children that were half
Annunaki such as the legend of Gilgamesh. All
the Prophets from Adam to Jesus Christ
prophesied the idea of one
GOD, and this was the central message that was
to be conveyed to the people. Allah has
mentioned in the Qur’an that He sent
messengers and guides among all people.
“Indeed, we sent in every community a
messenger… “ (al-Nahl 16:36).
“There was not any community except a Warner
lived among them.” (Fatir 35:24). However, the
Qur’an has not given us
the names and stories of all the messengers and
guides who were sent by Allah to various nations
and groups. We have only 25 prophets and
messengers who are mentioned in the Qur’an by
name. About other prophets and messengers
Allah said, “We have told you the story of some
Messengers and of others We have not …” (al-
Nisa’ 4;164)
We Muslims believe in Allah’s Prophets and
Messengers who came before Prophet
Muhammad - peace be upon all of them.
Prophet Muhammad was the Last Prophet and
Messenger of Allah. After his coming there will
be no new Prophet or Messenger.
(We accept that Jesus - peace be upon him - will
come again, but he will not be a new Prophet.)
We mention by names only
those Prophets and Messengers whose names are
given to us in the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah.
But those whose names are
not mentioned in the Qur’an and Sunnah we do
not say definitely that they were Allah’s Prophets
or Messengers.
Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal in his Musnad has
mentioned a Hadith (no. 21257) that Allah sent
124, 000 Prophets (Anbiya’)
and from among them 315 were the Messengers
(rusul).
CHAPTER TWO- THE NATURE OF GOD
(INTRICICIES)
Try sparking up a conversation about GOD these
days and you will get a endless litany of ideas and
personal interpretations. When I converse with
most self professed Christians of any
denomination I usually get the warm statement,"
GOD is love." This being a wonderful quality of
GOD does not in any
way encapsulate a perfect picture of GOD. Other
Christians I have spoken to looked intoxicatingly
into my eyes and proclaimed, "Jesus is GOD."
Christians and Muslims share many common
beliefs but this idea is
where they vastly differ. The Quran has gone to
great lengths to clear up the misconception that
Jesus Christ the Messiah was GOD incarnate.
The Quran is adamant on this subject and
proclaims in verse 4:171
People of the Book, go not beyond the bounds in
your religion, and say not as to God but the truth.
The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was
only the Messenger of God, and His Word that
He committed to Mary, and a Spirit from Him.
So believe in God and His Messengers, and say
not, 'Three.' Refrain; better is it for you. God is
only One God. Glory be to Him -- That He should
have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the
heavens and in the earth; God suffices for a
guardian. For Jews and Muslims this concept is
fortified by logic and the understanding of the
very nature of GOD. In the Quran GOD gives us a
hundred attributes of himself in order that we
might further our understanding of his nature.
In the Royal Arch degrees of freemasonry the
candidate is to further his meditation and try to
come to terms with with nature of GOD. We
understand from an Islamic and Jewish
perspective that GOD sits in his heavenly thrown,
and the angels of GOD stand in rows and worship
him day and night. Some of GODS attributes
are: THE ALL SEERER, THE ALL KNOWER,
THE ALL HEARER. Thus Gods presence is
everywhere at once, but GOD himself
is not an abstract or non physical entity. He
controls all things from his ISTAWA (Heavenly
Throne). Many Taoist, Buddhist, Hindu's, Sikhs
etc. explain GOD as an invisible force that has no
apparent nature. According to the religious
scriptures of the Prophets this is a misnomer. We
learn from the TORAH that GOD has created
man in his own image. From the Islamic Hadiths
(sayings) of the Prophet Muhammad we learn
that on the day of judgment GOD will reveal his
shin bone, and this will be a sign for the Muslims
to make prostrations. Thus GOD has
as physical makeup but can not be limited to any
form. In the TORAH he proclaims, I AM THAT I
WANT TO BE, from where we get
the word YAWEH, which is only the acronym
from which people have adopted as an official
name. Now we can see why when
Christians proclaim that Jesus is GOD Jews and
Muslims reject this claim adamantly. Since GOD
was on his throne during the Kingship of Jesus
the Messiahs prophet hood on earth, one can not
say that Jesus is GOD and make any logical
sense. We understand that Jesus was the Spirit
from GOD, and his Word. This is where Muslims
draw then line concerning Jesus and the nature
of GOD. In John 5 verse 41 we read Jesus saying,
" I do not accept glory from human beings. 42
But I know that you do not have the love of God
in you." and in
verse 44 we read, " How can you believe when
you accept glory from one another and do not
seek the glory that comes from the one who alone
is God?"
In John Chapter 7 verse 16-18 Jesus explains, "
"My teaching is not mine but his who sent me. 17
Anyone who resolves to do the will of God will
know whether
the teaching is from God or whether I am
speaking on my own. 18 Those who speak on
their own seek their own glory; but the one who
seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and
there is nothing false in him." Jesus makes clear
time and time again that the mystery is that he is
the Spirit and Word
of Truth from GOD, but those that don't
understand the nature of GOD could easily fall
victim to the idea that Jesus is THE ALMIGHTY
GOD. We see that while Jesus was talking to the
woman in Samaria in John 4 verse 21-22 we
read, "Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the
hour is coming
when you will worship the Father neither on this
mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You worship what
you do not know; we worship what we know, for
salvation is from the Jews. In Chapter 14 verse
28 we read, "You heard me say to you, 'I am
going away, and I am coming to you.' If you loved
me, you would rejoice
that I am going to the Father, because the Father
is greater than I. To truly understand and
interpret what was going on and who Jesus the
Messiah really was, we must keep in mind that he
bowed down and worshiped GOD in prayer.
From this act we can conclude that Jesus the
Spirit of GOD and the Word of GOD
still worshiped the ALL MIGHTY GOD IN
HEAVEN. The distinction being that Jesus
Christ the Messiah has a soul. Although his spirit
was from GOD and his Word was from GOD he
still held the status of man, and had a soul of his
own. Thus we can see that his true (SELF) was
separate from GOD as
seen through his acts of worship toward the
ALMIGHTY CREATOR. In his statement to the
Samarian woman that salvation was from the
JEWS, we can understand the importance of the
LAW OF GOD, and the understanding of his
nature. Jesus himself told the people that the
one who broke the
smallest commandment of the LAW would be the
least in the order of things. Jesus and the
disciples practiced according to Jewish law and
customs praying three times a day and keeping to
the commandments of Moses. This idea that the
law would vanish after Jesus' apparent death is
false. James
the brother of Jesus would get in many disputes
over the idea of FAITH and WORKS. Jesus was
adamant about telling the Jews they should know
him by his WORKS and in keeping with the
commandments of MOSES. In close
examination the ideas and epistles of the apostle
Paul are conflicting
with the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus Christ
the Messiah. Paul was an outsider that somehow
was thrown into the forefronts by the Nicean
council, and their ideas on what was an
acceptable religion to follow. What happened to
the close disciples of Jesus and their writings?
We can look at some
of the Apocryphal texts and many of the writings
warn of a FALSE TEACHER that would abandon
the Laws of GOD and the true teachings of his
inner circle. James and Paul fell into great
disputes, and some scholars have gone as far as
to lay blame on Paul for the eventual death of
James the Just, the beloved disciple of Jesus,
who carried with him the truest interpretations
of the words of Jesus. We learn in the Quran
miracles that coincide with some of the
Apocryphal texts concerning Jesus as a baby. We
read in the Quran from Chapter 5 verse 110 ,
"When Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary!
Remember My favor unto thee and unto thy
mother; how I strengthened thee with the holy
Spirit, so that thou spakest unto mankind in the
cradle as in maturity; and how I taught thee the
Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the
Gospel; and how thou didst shape of clay as it
were the likeness of a bird by My permission, and
didst blow upon it and it was a bird by My
permission, and thou didst heal him who was
born blind and the leper by My permission; and
how thou didst raise the dead by My permission;
and how I restrained the Children of Israel from
(harming) thee when thou camest unto them
with clear proofs, and those of them who
disbelieved exclaimed: This is naught else than
mere magic."
In the Gospel of John 16 verse 12-14 we are told
that," "I still have many things to say to you, but
you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of
truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth;
for he will not speak on his own, but will speak
whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the
things that are to come.
14 He will glorify me, because he will take what
is mine and declare it to you." I have made all
the pronouns in these sentences bold to drive
home the point that Jesus was referring to a
human being, not his own spirit. In the Quran
Chapter 61 verse 6 we read, "And when Jesus son
of Mary said: O Children
of Israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto
you, confirming that which was (revealed) before
me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a
messenger who cometh after me, whose name is
AHMED (Muhammad). Yet when he hath come
unto them with clear proofs, they say: This is
mere magic."
Let us examine closely another verse from the
Bible while the priests were questioning John the
Baptist. In John Chapter 1 verse 19-25, "This is
the testimony given by John when the Jews sent
priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him,
"Who are you?" 20 He confessed and did not
deny it, but confessed, "I am not the Messiah." 21
And they asked him, "What then? Are you
Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the
prophet?" He answered, "No."
22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? Let us
have an answer for those who sent us. What do
you say about yourself?"
23 He said, "I am the voice of one crying out in
the wilderness," Make straight the way of the
Lord,'" as the prophet Isaiah said.
24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.
25 They asked him, "Why then are you baptizing
if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the
prophet?" Who was the prophet the high priest
were referring to? From the writings of the Torah
we know that Jews were awaiting the arrival of
another Prophet that
was prophesized in their scriptures. "The Lord
said to me [Moses]: ‘What they say is good. I will
raise up for them a Prophet like you among
their brothers; I will put My words in his mouth,
and he will tell them everything I command him.
If anyone does not listen to My words that the
Prophet speaks in My Name, I will Myself call
him to account.’ (Deuteronomy, 18.17-9) Again
from the Quran we read, " We have sent to you a
Messenger as a witness over you, even as We sent
to Pharaoh a Messenger. (al-Muzzammil, 73.15)
and again
from John, "I will not speak with you much
longer, for the Prince of this world is coming.
And I posses nothing of him. (John, 14.30)
These verses stand as a opening point for
Christian and Muslim dialogue and debate.
What we know for sure is that
the nature of GOD from the Torah and Quran is
unlike anything that he has created. The
freemasons have come to terms with this and
have allocated the name for GOD as THE GREAT
ARCHITECT from which they get the G on their
compass that represents Geometry and Gnosis
signaling their ability for architecture. What we
know for sure is that the leaders of these Masonic
organizations that supposedly hold the keys of
knowledge all acknowledge ONE GOD THE
DIETY. Jesus himself told us to be wise as
serpents and innocent as doves. Thus one needs
to eradicate
their own fears and judgmental ness to become
wise as serpents, and look them in the eyes with
fearlessness. The reason the idea of one GOD is
so quintessential to the Jewish and Muslim faiths
is that worshipping idols or other things beside
GOD is the greatest of sins that surpasses all
other follies. One hadith (saying) from the
prophet Muhammad tells us, " Book 039,
Number 6731: Abu Musa reported that Allah's
Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: There
is none to show more patience at listening to the
most irksome things than Allah, the Exalted and
Glorious. ' Partnership is associated to Him
(polytheism). and (fatherhood) of a child is
attributed to Him, but in spite of this He protects
them (people) and provides them sustenance.
"We read in Chapter 4 verse 48 ,"Lo! Allah
forgiveth not that a partner should be ascribed
unto Him. He forgiveth (all) save that to whom
He will. Whoso ascribeth partners to Allah, he
hath indeed invented a tremendous sin."
We learn more about the nature of GOD from
this verse in the Quran (Chapter 2 verse 255)
"Allah! There is no Allah save Him, the Alive, the
Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh
Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the
heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is
he that intercedeth
with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that
which is in front of them and that which is
behind them, while they encompass nothing of
His knowledge save what He will. His throne
includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is
never weary of preserving them. He is the
Sublime, the Tremendous." Thus with proper
wisdom and discernment we can start our
personal venture into the true nature of GOD
and hope through prayer and meditation to over
turn unturned stones and peek into the treasure
trove of maxims that will be presented in this
book. Concerning the nature of Jesus Christ, we
read in the Quran (Chapter 3 v.49 And will make
him a messenger unto the Children of Israel,
(saying): Lo! I come unto you with a sign from
your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the
likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a
bird, by Allah's leave. I heal him who was born
blind, and the leper, and I raise the dead, by
Allah's leave. And I announce unto you what ye
eat and what ye store up in your
houses. Lo! herein verily is a portent for you, if ye
are to be believers. and Chapter 3 v. 55 (And
remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am
gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto
Me, and am cleansing thee of those who
disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee
above those who disbelieve until
the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will
(all) return, and I shall judge between you as to
that wherein ye used to differ. Chapter 3. v 59
Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the
likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, then
He said unto him: Be! and he is. When the
Prophet Muhammad used to preach
in the masjid concerning the nature of Jesus
some of the priest would gather and contend
that he was lying. A verse was revealed to the
Prophet at that time ( Chapter
3 v. 61 "And whoso disputeth with thee
concerning him, after the knowledge which hath
come unto thee, say (unto him): Come! We will
summon our sons and your sons, and our women
and your women, and ourselves and yourselves,
then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and
(solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah upon those
who lie." Concerning the supposed crucifixion
we read, "And because of their saying: We slew
the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah's
messenger - they slew him not nor crucified him,
but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who
disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they
have no
knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture;
they slew him not for certain. C.4v.157. and "O
People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in
your religion
nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth.
The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a
messenger of Allah, and His word which He
conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So
believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not
"Three" - Cease! (it is) better for you! - Allah is
only One God. Far is it removed
from His Transcendent Majesty that He should
have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all
that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as
Defender. C4.v171.and
"And We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow in
their footsteps, confirming that which was
(revealed) before him in the Torah, and We
bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance
and a light, confirming that which was (revealed)
before it in the Torah - a guidance and an
admonition unto those who ward off (evil).
C5v.46. We now incur a warning against the
ultimate transgression of idolatry, "They surely
disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son
of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children
of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him
Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the
Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers." We
read in Chapter 5 verse 116, "And when Allah
saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto
mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods
beside Allah? he saith: Be glorified! It was not
mine to utter that to which I had no right.
If I used to say it, then Thou knewest it. Thou
knowest what is in my mind, and I know not
what is in Thy Mind. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the
Knower of Things Hidden? " We also read of the
confirmation Jesus Christ gave his disciples of
the spirit of truth that was to come in Chapter 61
verse 6, "And when Jesus son
of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the
messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that
which was (revealed) before me in the Torah, and
bringing good
tidings of a messenger who cometh after me,
whose name is the Praised One. Yet when he hath
come unto them with clear proofs, they say: This
is mere magic." We will finish this chapter with a
few verses from Chapter Mary 19 v.87-96 "None
shall have the power of intercession, but such a
one as has received permission (or promise) from
(Allah) Most Gracious. They say: "(Allah) Most
Gracious has begotten a son!" Indeed ye have put
forth a thing most monstrous! At it the skies are
ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the
mountains to fall down in utter ruin, That they
should invoke a son for (Allah) Most Gracious.
For it is not consonant with the majesty
of (Allah) Most Gracious that He should beget a (
literal) son. Not one of the beings in the heavens
and the earth but must come to (Allah) Most
Gracious as a servant. He does take an account
of them (all), and hath numbered them (all)
exactly. And everyone of them will come to Him
singly on the Day of Judgment. On those who
believe and work deeds of righteousness, will
(Allah) Most Gracious bestow love. [6:103]" No
vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all
vision: He is above all comprehension, yet is
acquainted with all things."
CHAPTER THREE- (The Forces at Play)

In the Arabic language the word for Satan is


Shaitan. His proper name in the Quran is Iblis.
We also understand that he was one of the Djin
or beings made from smokeless fire. The word
Jinn or Djin is where we get the western word
genie from. Let us look at the definition of
Genie,(1655, "tutelary spirit," from Fr. genie,
from L. genius (see genius); used in Fr.
translation of "Arabian Nights" to render Arabic
jinni, pl. of jinn "spirit," which it accidentally
resembled, and attested in Eng. with this sense
from 1748. n.
A supernatural creature who does one's bidding
when summoned. A jinni. [French génie, spirit,
from Latin genius, guardian spirit; see genius.]
Let us read what the Qurans informs us of these
entities, (18 verse 50 And (remember) when We
said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam,
and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of
the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord's
command. Will ye choose him and his seed for
your protecting
friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy
unto you? Calamitous is the exchange for evil-
doers.) and 55 verse 15 (And the jinn did He
create of smokeless fire.) The word Jinn differs
from the word Demon in the fact that some of
these beings worship GOD and follow the
straight path. Abdullah b. Mas'ud said in
connection with the verse:" Those whom they call
upon, themselves seek the means of access to
their Lord," that that verse was revealed in
connection with a party of Arabs who used to
worship a group amongst the jinn; the jinn
embraced Islam but the people kept worshipping
them without being conscious of it. Then this
verse was revealed:" Those whom they call upon,
themselves seek the means of access to their
Lord."
We know that many fortune tellers and occultist
use cold readings while readings someone
fortune, but some of them actually commune
with the djin and try to find secrets and
information from amongst them. In a hadith we
read, "Some people asked the Prophet regarding
the soothsayers.
He said, "They are nothing." They said, "O
Allah's Apostle! Some of their talks come true."
The Prophet said, "That word which happens to
be true is what a Jinn snatches away by stealth
(from the Heaven) and pours it in the ears of his
friend (the foreteller) with a sound like the
cackling of a hen. The soothsayers
then mix with that word, one hundred lies."
Many of the Djin are Chiefs and Leaders amongst
themselves and worship Iblis or Shaitan (
Lucifer). Lucifer has been called the bright
morning star, and giver of light. According to
many stories he was the most beautiful of the
Djin and possessed great
knowledge and power. When GOD commanded
him to bow down before his new creation (Adam)
Iblis refused as his pride rose up inside himself,
which led to his expellation from the Heavenly
Abode. Many men and woman have sold their
souls or self to the Jinn and make packs with
them.
We can understand from the stories of Solomon
some of the great powers that some of the Djin
leaders possessed. We read in Chapter 27 verse
17," And there were gathered together unto
Solomon his armies of the jinn and humankind,
and of the birds, and they were set in battle
order;" When Solomon called to the Jinn and
asked them which one could bring him Queen
Sheba's kingdom the fastest, a chief Djin
responded," A stalwart of the
jinn said: I will bring it thee before thou canst
rise from thy place. Lo! I verily am strong and
trusty for such work. (C.27v.39) The Djin were
placed under the order of Solomon until his
death and often complained to him of their
slavery. One thing we know for sure is that the
secret weapon of the Djin against humans is
Whisperings and Suggestions. This is what some
scholars have referred to as the Will-O-Wisps.
They are able to manipulate a weak minded
person very easily with various forms of mind
games. We also have an indication that the
greater level of knowledge a person has about
them, the more they respect our space, and many
of them fear us due to our invocations to the
ALMIGHTY GOD. Whether it is angels that drive
them away, or the light and presence of GOD, we
know from the Quran
and other scriptures that the Djin become
powerless in the face of ablution with water, and
invocations. Their main goal is to distract a
person from believing in GOD, and suppress a
person's reflection on his own creation and
purpose. At the highest levels their job is to try
to get us to commit an act of Shirk, or disbelief
in GOD. This can take many forms,
from seeking out magic, and fortune tellers, to
associating in worship with GOD, making
partners with GOD, believing
that there is power and good fortune in objects
and omens, etc. This main objective goes hand
and parcel with them also trying to persuade us
through suggestions to commit murder,
fornications, back biting or gossip, adultery, rape,
pedophilia, and the list goes on and on. The evil
ones amongst the jinn created an enormous lie
against GOD and said that GOD
has a son, and they used to whisper this
suggestion amongst the people after the time of
Jesus. We read in Chapter 5 v.72 ,"They surely
disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son
of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children
of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him
Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the
Fire. For evil-doers there will be no help."
"They have taken as lords beside Allah their
rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of
Mary, when they were bidden to worship only
One God. There is no God save Him. Be He
Glorified from all that they ascribe as partner
(unto Him)!" C 9 v.31. Also we know that
the Jinn race can reproduce like us, they eat and
drink, they have their own livelihood, and they
can latch on to us and some of the female jinn
actually reproduce with the Man. This may seem
rather strange, but we must understand that they
are living in another dimension and are invisible
to us. We also know that they can materialize
and alter things in our three dimensional space
and time. They
also die and have life spans as humans do. They
may seem to have powers and be superior to us
in many ways, but quite
the opposite is true from their perspectives.
What we do know is that they have limitations,
but are able to bite us, spit at us,
and agitate us in many ways. The worst of them
will come over you like a dark cloud and make
you have an overwhelming feeling
of anger, or lust, or jealousy etc. The best way to
rid them from your presence is to make sure your
clean and hygienic, and
perform regular baths and ablutions, seeking
refuge in GOD from their evil, and their
whispers. Now is a good time to talk about
Magic. We learn in the Quran from which the
origins of Magic originated. We read in Chaper2
v 102
"And follow that which the devils falsely related
against the kingdom of Solomon. Solomon
disbelieved not; but the devils disbelieved,
teaching mankind magic and that which was
revealed to the two angels in Babel, Harut and
Marut. Nor did they (the two angels) teach it to
anyone till they had said: We are only a
temptation, therefore disbelieve not (in the
guidance of Allah). And from these two (angels)
people learn that by which they cause division
between man and wife; but they injure thereby
no-one save by Allah's leave. And they learn that
which harmeth them and profited them not. And
surely they do know that he who trafficked
therein will have no (happy) portion in the
Hereafter; and surely
evil is the price for which they sell their souls, if
they but knew." Magicians in those times used to
conjure the jinn using many means, and
would create talismans of rope and would tie
knots into it and blow into the knots. They would
also use a person's hair or personal effects and tie
them in knots creating talismans and invoking
the Jinn race to assist them in their mischief.
Thus we can deduce that magic is the separation
of the two opposite forces of Man and Woman.
These forces can be described using the Yin and
Yang model and the forces that hold together
every planet, cell, organism, etc. The Jinn are
assisting the Magician in the separation of these
forces and then can allow for the reassembly of
them as desired. From this many magicians have
been successful in causing divorce and using this
black art to separate husband and wife by the
powerful force of the separation of the opposite
nature of their spirits. Let us look at this Hadith:
Volume 8, Book 75, Number 400: Narrated
'Aisha:
that Allah's Apostle was affected by magic, so
much that he used to think that he had done
something which in fact, he did not do, and he
invoked his Lord (for a remedy). Then (one day)
he said, "O 'Aisha!) Do you know that Allah has
advised me as to the problem I consulted Him
about?" 'Aisha said, "O Allah's Apostle! What's
that?" He said, "Two men came to me and one of
them sat at my head and the other at my feet, and
one of them
asked his companion, 'What is wrong with this
man?' The latter replied, 'He is under the effect of
magic.' The former asked, 'Who has worked
magic on him?
' The latter replied, 'Labid bin Al-A'sam.' The
former asked, 'With what did he work the magic?'
The latter replied, 'With a comb and the hair,
which are stuck to the comb, and the skin of
pollen of a date-palm tree.' The former asked,
'Where is that?' The latter replied, 'It is in
Dharwan.' Dharwan was a well
in the dwelling place of the (tribe of) Bani
Zuraiq. Allah's Apostle went to that well and
returned to 'Aisha, saying, 'By Allah, the water (of
the well) was as red as the infusion of Hinna, (1)
and the date-palm trees look like the heads of
devils.' 'Aisha added, Allah's Apostle came to me
and informed me about the
well. I asked the Prophet, 'O Allah's Apostle, why
didn't you take out the skin of pollen?' He said,
'As for me, Allah has cured me and I hated to
draw the attention of the people to such evil
(which they might learn and harm others with).' "
Another kind of magic is the use of words and
poetic wording in writings and speech. The
rhyming of words seems to have great impact at
the subconscious level. When engraved in the
subconscious with music and instruments,
sometimes it takes a lifetime and we still cannot
remove the vapor of sounds
that can reintroduce itself at any given moment.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 76:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar: Two men came from the
east and delivered speeches, and the Prophet
said, "Some eloquent speech has the in fluency of
magic (e.g., some people refuse to do something
and then a good eloquent speaker addresses
them and then they agree to do that very thing
after his speech). "
A good example of this would be the late
enigmatic speaker Billy Graham. Many
freemasons have also mastered this craft and use
mentalist, hypnotic
suggestion, and neurolinguistic programming to
assist them in the art of persuasion. Before we
move on to the next chapter I think it is
important to note that a person that commits a
sin from a Islamic perspective can gain a
covering over his eyes, his heart, his sight etc.
From this perspective we
learn that when we do good deeds and repent
GOD removes layers of these coverings according
to his vast wisdom, and when walk toward him,
so to speak, he runs toward us. The flip side of
the coin is that when we commit sins and turn
away from GOD, he also covers up our keenness,
and can add ignorance to our ignorance if we
don't submit to him in repentance and
invocation. These forces that we have discussed
are
forever plucking at our heart strings and
influencing us in ways we sometimes don't know.
It is worth mentioning that from the Islamic
perspective there is no such thing as being born a
sinner. The child is innocent of all sins until her
reaches the age of consciousness and
understands what is right and wrong. This age
according to the sayings of the Prophet
Muhammad is sometime around the age of
seven. There does exist such thing as a curse,
which is the parents and the wrong doings of the
parent's mis guiding their children and leading
them into disbelief and sin.
Many times a curse can last generation after
generation, and often times comes to an end
when a person reaches a stage where he
questions what he has been taught and seeks
wisdom from GOD to find the truth of his affairs
and purpose of his life. We will discuss more in
detail about the idea Destiny, which is called
Qadar in Arabic, and will look into the many
secrets of knowledge and wisdom that the
religion of Islam (submission)
has to offer. In closing I would like to add that
many times while speaking about Demons, Jinn,
Satan, Lucifer, etc. people begin to feel fearful,
and are often fearful that evil things will befall
them due to their superstitions and ideas dealing
with karma, omens, and false assumptions about
religions and sects that they have little
knowledge about. We must learn not to fear
anything other than GOD himself. This is the
ultimate confidence amongst men. If we wish to
seek wisdom we must learn to filter out what is
useful and discard what is useless. Your
knowledge of self or memory protocol is one of
the most useful mental resources a person can
use in order to steer him or herself into the
calmer waters
of repose.
Chapter Four - The Higher Purpose
(Complexities and Conundrums)

For what reason has mankind been created? The


question is posed in Chapter 75 v.36," Thinketh
man that he is to be left aimless?"
The answer is giving in Chapter 67 v.2 ,"Who
hath created life and death that He may try you
which of you is best in conduct; and He is the
Mighty, the Forgiving."
In the grand scheme of things we discover that
mankind was created to worship his creator, and
to test each individual in his morality and
submission. Another question is put forth in
Chapter 75 v36. "Thinketh man that he is to be
left aimless?" To imagine that we were created
with great calculation and with out purpose is
madness. This kind of thinking is only for people
that wish to create a mental diversion, or
convenient rationalization for them selves.
The fact that a great portion of today's people are
conscious less of their actions doesn't give us a
warrant to inherit such behaviorisms. Men of
knowledge and math understand that this life we
live is a miracle of articulation and far from
random chance or chaotic evolutional theories.
Those people that wish
to disbelieve in their own creation and to take
responsibility for their actions are hopeless
escape artists. Let us analyze Chapter 96 v. 1-8.
Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and
Cherisher, Who created-
Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed
blood: Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most
Bountiful,-
He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-
Taught man that which he knew not.
but man doth transgress all bounds,
In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient.
Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all).
The truth is that we are all on this earth for a
short period of time, and our final destination is
when we stand before our lord. Chapter 19 verse
66-69
Man says: "What! When I am dead, shall I then
be raised up alive?" But does not man call to
mind that We created him before out of nothing?
So, by thy Lord, without doubt, We shall gather
them together, and (also) the Evil Ones (with
them); then shall We bring them forth on their
knees round about Hell;
Then shall We certainly drag out from every sect
all those who were worst in obstinate rebellion
against (Allah) Most Gracious.
and verse 77-85 Hast thou then seen the (sort of)
man who rejects Our Signs, yet says: "I shall
certainly be given wealth and children?"
Has he penetrated to the Unseen, or has he
taken a contract with (Allah) Most Gracious?
Nay! We shall record what he says, and We shall
add and add to his punishment.
To Us shall return all that he talks of and he shall
appear before Us bare and alone.
And they have taken (for worship) gods other
than Allah, to give them power and glory!
Instead, they shall reject their worship, and
become adversaries against them.
Seest thou not that We have set the Evil Ones on
against the unbelievers, to incite them with fury?
So make no haste against them, for We but count
out to them a (limited) number (of days).
The day We shall gather the righteous to (Allah)
Most Gracious, like a band presented before a
king for honors,"
We can deduce from these scriptures that the
purpose of our lives is worship GOD, follow his
commandments and revelations, and work good
deeds to make our societies more livable and to
acquire a good record for the day of judgment
The Creator also states in the Qur'an
(translated): [42:36-38] So whatever thing you
are given, that is only a provision of this world's
life, and what
is with Allah is better and more lasting for those
who believe and rely on their Lord, and those
who shun the great sins and indecencies, and
whenever they are angry they forgive, and those
who respond to their Lord and keep up prayer,
and their rule is to take counsel among
themselves, and who spend out of what We have
given them." We have learned from all the
Prophets of GOD that we shall one day be
resurrected and judged according to our deeds.
Just as a judge makes judgments during court
hearings and trials, so will GOD one day judge us
and bring us into account for our actions in this
life. "Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to
learn (his doings) learn (and noted them), one
sitting on the right and one on the left." 50.v17
"Or do they think that We hear not their secrets
and their private counsels? Indeed (We do), and
Our messengers are by them, to record. " 43v.80
"Ye did not hide yourselves lest your ears and
your eyes and your skins should testify against
you, but ye deemed that Allah knew not much of
what ye did. 41v.22
On the day of judgment each one of us will be
given a book that was recorded by angels and will
tell of our doings in this life.
"And the Book (of Deeds) will be placed (before
you); and thou wilt see the sinful in great terror
because of what is (recorded) therein; they
will say, "Ah! woe to us! what a Book is this! It
leaves out nothing small or great, but takes
account thereof!" They will find all that they did,
placed before them: And not one will thy Lord
treat with injustice. 18v.49
The purpose of our life takes on new meaning
when we consider the ramifications of our
actions in the grand scheme of things. Great
detail is given concerning heaven and hell in the
quran so that we might hope for the best and
change our incorrect actions in fear of the hell
fire. This is the beginning of wisdom,
which is fear toward our creator and our
responsibilities. This translates in piety and
peaceful repose. Most of us grimace at the idea of
doing good deeds just so we can avoid the
hellfire, but this is just the beginning of belief.
The prophet revealed that whoever worships
GOD as one and believes that in Islam, and
the message of the prophet Muhammad will be
saved from the Hellfire out of mercy from our
creator. Muslims do not rely on this fact, but
strive toward love for our creator and enjoy the
comfort and peace of his security and blessings.
The Quran is recited during prayers and GOD
through his mercy
showers the believers with certainty of faith;
light, mercy, repose, forgiveness and his angels.
[41:44] "And if We (Allah) had made it a Qur'an
in a foreign tongue, they would certainly have
said: "Why have not
its communications been made clear? What! a
foreign (tongue) and an Arab!" Say: It is, to those
who believe, a guidance and a
healing; and (as for) those who do not believe,
there is a heaviness in their ears and it is obscure
to them; these shall be called to from a far-off
place." Each prophet of GOD was given different
talents and abilities during their prophet hood to
have an acute impact upon the people of their
corresponding
era. For instance the Prophet Moses was given
the ability of Magic from GOD because the
pharaoh and his courts were specialists in magic
and illusions. "Said the Chiefs of the people of
Pharaoh: "This is indeed a sorcerer well-versed."
7v.109. Moses warned the Pharaoh and his
chiefs that
his magic was from the GOD himself and that he
had been shown the correct way to purity and
righteousness. The Pharaoh grew proud and
proclaimed that he was the only GOD of Egypt
and that he would no way listen to this well
groomed sorcerer. In the Pharaoh's rebellion he
refused to submit
to GOD and chased MOSES as he was leading the
Israelites into freedom. "(Their way is) as the
way of Pharaoh's folk and those before them;
they denied the revelations of their Lord, so We
destroyed them in their sins. And We drowned
the folk of Pharaoh. All were evil-doers." 8v.54
"Like Pharaoh's folk and those who were before
them, they disbelieved Our revelations and so
Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is
severe in punishment." 3v.11
GOD has chosen Moses and gave his a special
trade set in order to warn the Pharaoh of his
actions and but was refused.
Now we must look at the Prophet Jesus Christ
the Messiah. He was sent as a sign to the Rabbis
and Jewish community. The Jews at that time
were the great physicians and doctors and were
the most knowledgeable in medicine and healing
techniques. For this reason it makes sense that
GOD endowed Jesus Christ with the ability to
perform miracles and heal. This special ability
corresponds with the nature of the people he was
giving his message to. The Jews rejected Jesus
Christ although Jesus prayed three times a day,
as a Jew, observed the Jewish law of the Torah,
ate accordingly etc. Jesus said, "Matthew 5:18
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth
pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass
from the law, till all be fulfilled." This was in
order with showing his disciples that the law of
GOD will stand until the last days. "And will
make him a messenger unto the Children of
Israel, (saying): Lo! I come unto you with a sign
from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you
out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe
into it and it is a bird, by Allah's leave. I heal him
who was born blind, and the leper, and I raise the
dead, by Allah's leave. And I announce unto you
what ye eat and what ye store up in your houses.
Lo! herein verily is a portent for you, if ye are
to be believers." 3v.49. Though he kept will the
law of GOD and showed them many miracles and
signs they still refused him as a true prophet just
as the pharaoh and his chiefs refused to believe
in the message of Moses.
Now comes the Prophet Muhammad, the seal of
the prophets. Although Muhammad could
neither read or write at the age of 40 when he
received his first revelation from the Angel
Gabriel. The Arabs that lived in the desert
specialized in stories and oral traditions. The
pride of the Arabs was
their poetry and eloquent prose. It makes sense
that the Quran was often referred to as poetry
and was written in the highest form of the Arabic
language. Since Muhammad lived for so many
years as a normal man and had never had any
exceptional abilities of speech, when he started to
recite the revelation of GOD, many people were
bewildered and astonished at this miracle of
words that he recited verbatim without booklet
or paper.
"Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3:
Narrated 'Aisha:
(the mother of the faithful believers) The
commencement of the Divine Inspiration to
Allah's Apostle was in the form of good dreams
which came true like bright day light, and then
the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He
used to go in seclusion in the cave of Hira where
he used to worship (Allah alone)
continuously for many days before his desire to
see his family. He used to take with him the
journey food for the stay and then come back to
(his wife) Khadija
to take his food like-wise again till suddenly the
Truth descended upon him while he was in the
cave of Hira. The angel came to him and asked
him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know
how to read. The Prophet added, "The angel
caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard
that I could not bear it any more. He then
released me and again asked me to read
and I replied, 'I do not know how to read.'
Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a
second time till I could not bear it any more. He
then released me and again asked me to read but
again I replied, 'I do not know how to read (or
what shall I read)?' Thereupon he caught me for
the third time and pressed me,
and then released me and said, 'Read in the
name of your Lord, who has created (all that
exists) has created man from a clot. Read! And
your Lord is the Most Generous." (96.1, 96.2,
96.3) Then Allah's Apostle returned with the
Inspiration and with his heart beating severely.
Then he went to Khadija bint Khuwailid
and said, "Cover me! Cover me!" They covered
him till his fear was over and after that he told
her everything that had happened and said, "I
fear that something may happen to me." Khadija
replied, "Never! By Allah, Allah will never
disgrace you. You keep good relations with your
Kith and kin, help the poor and the
destitute, serve your guests generously and assist
the deserving calamity-afflicted ones."
Khadija then accompanied him to her cousin
Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin 'Abdul 'Uzza,
who, during the Pre Islamic Period became a
Christian and used to write the writing with
Hebrew letters. He would write from the Gospel
in Hebrew as much as Allah wished him to write.
He was an old man and had lost
his eyesight. Khadija said to Waraqa, "Listen to
the story of your nephew, O my cousin!" Waraqa
asked, "O my nephew! What have you seen?"
Allah's Apostle described whatever he had seen.
Waraqa said, "This is the same one who keeps
the secrets (angel Gabriel) whom Allah had sent
to Moses. I wish I were
young and could live up to the time when your
people would turn you out." Allah's Apostle
asked, "Will they drive me out?" Waraqa replied
in the affirmative and said, "Anyone (man) who
came with something similar to what you have
brought was treated with hostility; and if I should
remain alive till the day when you will be turned
out then I would support you strongly." But after
a few days Waraqa died and the Divine
Inspiration was also paused for a while.
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah Al-Ansari while
talking about the period of pause in revelation
reporting the speech of the Prophet "While I was
walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the
sky. I looked up and saw the same angel who had
visited me at the cave of Hira' sitting on a chair
between the sky and the earth. I got afraid of him
and came back home and said, 'Wrap me (in
blankets).' And then Allah revealed the following
Holy Verses (of Quran):
'O you (i.e. Muhammad)! wrapped up in
garments!' Arise and warn (the people against
Allah's Punishment),... up to 'and desert the
idols.' (74.1-5) After
this the revelation started coming strongly,
frequently and regularly."
Concerning GOD and the nature of the Judgment
day the followers of Muhammad asked, "Volume
9, Book 93, and Number 532s:
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:
We said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we see our
Lord on the Day of Resurrection?" He said, "Do
you have any difficulty in seeing the sun and the
moon when the sky is clear?" We said, "No." He
said, "So you will have no difficulty in seeing your
Lord on that Day as you have no difficulty in
seeing the sun and the
moon (in a clear sky)." The Prophet then said,
"Somebody will then announce, 'Let every nation
follow what they used to worship.' So the
companions of the cross will go with their cross,
and the idolaters (will go) with their idols, and
the companions of every god (false deities) (will
go) with their god, till there remain those who
used to worship Allah, both the obedient ones
and the mischievous ones, and some of the
people of the Scripture. Then Hell will be
presented to them as if it were a mirage. Then it
will be said to the Jews, "What did you use to
worship?' They will reply, 'We used to worship
Ezra, the son of Allah.' It will be said to them,
'You are liars, for Allah has neither a wife nor a
son. What do you want (now)?' They will reply,
'We want You to provide us with water.' Then it
will be said to them 'Drink,' and they will fall
down in Hell (instead). Then it will be said to the
Christians, 'What did you use to worship?'
They will reply, 'We used to worship Messiah, the
son of Allah.' It will be said, 'You are liars, for
Allah has neither a wife nor a son. What: do you
want (now)?'
They will say, 'We want You to provide us with
water.' It will be said to them, 'Drink,' and they
will fall down in Hell (instead). When there
remain only those who used to worship Allah
(Alone), both the obedient ones and the
mischievous ones, it will be said to them, 'What
keeps you here when all the people have gone?'
They will say, 'We parted with them (in the
world) when we were in greater need of them
than we are today, we heard the call of one
proclaiming, 'Let every nation follow what they
used to worship,' and now we are waiting for our
Lord.' Then the Almighty will come to them in a
shape other than the one which
they saw the first time, and He will say, 'I am
your Lord,' and they will say, 'You are not our
Lord.' And none will speak: to Him then but the
Prophets, and then it will be said to them, 'Do
you know any sign by which you can recognize
Him?' They will say. 'The Shin,' and so Allah will
then uncover His Shin whereupon
every believer will prostrate before Him and
there will remain those who used to prostrate
before Him just for showing off and for gaining
good reputation. These people will try to
prostrate but their backs will be rigid like one
piece of a wood (and they will not be able to
prostrate). Then the bridge will be laid across
Hell. " We, the companions of the Prophet said,
"O Allah's Apostle! What is the bridge?'
He said, "It is a slippery (bridge) on which there
are clamps and (Hooks like) a thorny seed that is
wide at one side and narrow at the other and has
thorns with bent ends. Such a thorny seed is
found in Najd and is called As-Sa'dan. Some of
the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as
the wink of an eye, some
others as quick as lightning, a strong wind, fast
horses or she-camels. So some will be safe
without any harm; some will be safe after
receiving some scratches, and some will fall down
into Hell (Fire). The last person will cross by
being dragged (over the bridge)." The Prophet
said, "You (Muslims) cannot be more pressing in
claiming from me a right that has been clearly
proved to be yours than the believers in
interceding with Almighty for their (Muslim)
brothers on that Day, when they see themselves
safe.
They will say, 'O Allah! (Save) our brothers (for
they) used to pray with us, fast with us and also
do good deeds with us.' Allah will say, 'Go and
take out (of Hell) anyone in whose heart you find
faith equal to the weight of one (gold) Dinar.'
Allah will forbid the Fire to burn the faces of
those sinners. They will go to them
and find some of them in Hell (Fire) up to their
feet, and some up to the middle of their legs. So
they will take out those whom they will recognize
and then they will return, and Allah will say (to
them), 'Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in
whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of
one half Dinar.' They will take out whomever
they will recognize and return, and then Allah
will say, 'Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in
whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of
an atom (or a smallest ant), and so they will take
out all those whom they will recognize." Abu
Sa'id said: If you do not believe me then read the
Holy Verse:--
'Surely! Allah wrongs not even of the weight of an
atom (or a smallest ant) but if there is any good
(done) He doubles it.' (4.40) The Prophet added,
"Then the prophets and Angels and the believers
will intercede, and (last of all) the Almighty
(Allah) will say, 'Now remains My Intercession.
He will then hold a
handful of the Fire from which He will take out
some people whose bodies have been burnt, and
they will be thrown into a river at the entrance of
Paradise, called the water of life.
They will grow on its banks, as a seed carried by
the torrent grows. You have noticed how it grows
beside a rock or beside a tree, and how the side
facing the sun is usually green while the side
facing the shade is white. Those people will come
out (of the River of Life) like pearls, and they will
have (golden) necklaces, and then they will enter
Paradise whereupon the people of Paradise will
say, 'These are the people emancipated by the
Beneficent. He has admitted them into Paradise
without them having done any good deeds and
without sending forth any good (for themselves).'
Then it will be said to them, 'For you is what
you have seen and its equivalent as well.'"
There are thousands of sayings or hadiths from
the Prophet Muhammad with a certain uncanny
knowledge and wisdom that could only be on the
literary scale of a prophet of GOD. He would
recite the whole Quran verbatim, which it in itself
is a miracle. Most poets and sharp readers
understand
that it is easier to memorize writings that have a
rhythm, rhyme scheme, scale etc. For this reason
thousands and thousands of Muslims today have
memorized the Holy Quran. When we couple
this with the thousands and thousands of sayings
memorized by his followers and written down in
his lifetime, it
leaves us with a multiplicity of knowledge and
wisdom that few western scholars have read and
examined thoroughly. Many people reading this
right now are hearing those whispers inside
themselves and are having a hard time in
swallowing the idea of the last prophet of GOD
being Muhammad. Just as
the prophets before Muhammad warned their
people that they were prophets and rejected
them, so are the people today rejecting the signs.
This is a cycle of disbelief that has been going on
for thousands of years amongst the many
generations from the past.
Volume 6, Book 60, Number 7:
Narrated Anas:
'Abdullah bin Salam heard the news of the arrival
of Allah's Apostle (at Medina) while he was on a
farm collecting its fruits. So he came to the
Prophet and said, "I will ask you about three
things which nobody knows unless he be a
prophet. Firstly, what is the first portent of the
Hour? What is the first meal
of the people of Paradise? And what makes a
baby look like its father or mother?'. The Prophet
said, "Just now Gabriel has informed me about
that." 'Abdullah said, "Gabriel?" The Prophet
said, "Yes." 'Abdullah said, "He, among the
angels is the enemy of the Jews." On that the
Prophet recited this Holy Verse:--
"Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel (let him die in
his fury!) for he has brought it (i.e. Qur'an) down
to your heart by Allah's permission." (2.97) Then
he added, "As for the first portent of the Hour, it
will be a fire that will collect the people from the
East to West. And as for the first meal of the
people of Paradise, it will
be the caudate (i.e. extra) lobe of the fish liver.
And if a man's discharge proceeded that of the
woman, then the child resembles the father, and
if the woman's discharge proceeded that of the
man, then the child resembles the mother." On
hearing that, 'Abdullah said, "I testify that None
has the right to be worshipped
but Allah, and that you are the Apostle of Allah,
O, Allah's Apostle; the Jews are liars, and if they
should come to know that I have embraced
Islam, they would accuse me of being a liar." In
the meantime some Jews came (to the Prophet)
and he asked them, "What is 'Abdullah's status
amongst you?
" They replied, "He is the best amongst us, and he
is our chief and the son of our chief." The
Prophet said, "What would you think if 'Abdullah
bin Salam
embraced Islam?" They replied, "May Allah
protect him from this!" Then 'Abdullah came out
and said, "I testify that None has the right to be
worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is the
Apostle of Allah." The Jews then said, "Abdullah
is the worst of us and the son of the worst of us,"
and disparaged him.
On that 'Abdullah said, "O Allah's Apostle! This
is what I was afraid of!"

Concerning fate:
Book 033, Number 6392:
Hudhaifa b. Usaid reported directly from Allah's
Messenger (may peace be upon him) that lie said:
When the drop of (semen) remains in the womb
for forty or fifty (days) or forty nights, the angel
comes and says: My Lord, will he be good or evil?
And both these things would be written. Then the
angel
says: My Lord, would he be male or female? And
both these things are written. And his deeds and
actions, his death, his livelihood; these are also
recorded. Then his document of destiny is rolled
and there is no, addition to and subtraction from
it.
Concerning the revelation to pray:

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 608:


Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The night Allah's Apostle was taken for a journey
from the sacred mosque (of Mecca) Al-Ka'ba:
Three persons came to him (in a dreamy while he
was sleeping in the Sacred Mosque before the
Divine Inspiration was revealed to Him. One of
them said, "Which of them is he?" The middle
(second) angel said, "He is the best of them." The
last (third) angle said, "Take the best of them."
Only that much happened on that night and he
did not see them till they came on another night,
i.e. after The Divine Inspiration was revealed to
him. (Fateh-Al-Bari Page 258, Vol. 17) and he
saw them, his eyes were asleep but his heart
was not----and so is the case with the prophets:
their eyes sleep while their hearts do not sleep.
So those angels did not talk to him till they
carried him and placed him beside the well of
Zam-Zam. From among them Gabriel took
charge of him. Gabriel cut open (the part of his
body) between his throat and the middle of his
chest (heart) and took all the material out of his
chest and abdomen and then washed it with
Zam-Zam water with his own hands till he
cleansed the inside of his body, and then a gold
tray containing a gold bowl full of belief and
wisdom was brought and then Gabriel stuffed his
chest and throat blood vessels with it and then
closed it (the chest). He then ascended with him
to the heaven of the world and knocked on one of
its doors.
The dwellers of the Heaven asked, 'Who is it?' He
said, "Gabriel." They said, "Who is accompanying
you?" He said, "Muhammad." They said, "Has he
been called?" He said, "Yes" They said, "He is
welcomed." So the dwellers of the Heaven
became pleased with his arrival, and they did not
know what Allah would
do to the Prophet on earth unless Allah informed
them. The Prophet met Adam over the nearest
Heaven. Gabriel said to the Prophet, "He is your
father; greet him." The Prophet greeted him and
Adam returned his greeting and said, "Welcome,
O my Son! O what a good son you are!" Behold,
he saw two flowing rivers, while he was in the
nearest sky. He asked, "What are these two
rivers, O Gabriel?" Gabriel said, "These are the
sources of the Nile and the Euphrates."
Then Gabriel took him around that Heaven and
behold, he saw another river at the bank of which
there was a palace built of pearls and emerald.
He put his hand into the river and found its mud
like musk Adhfar. He asked, "What is this, O
Gabriel?" Gabriel said, "This is the Kauthar
which your Lord has kept for
you." Then Gabriel ascended (with him) to the
second Heaven and the angels asked the same
questions as those on the first Heaven, i.e., "Who
is it?" Gabriel replied, "Gabriel". They asked,
"Who is accompanying you?" He said,
"Muhammad." They asked, "Has he been sent
for?" He said, "Yes." Then they said,
"He is welcomed.'' Then he (Gabriel) ascended
with the Prophet to the third Heaven, and the
angels said the same as the angels of the first and
the second Heavens had said.
Then he ascended with him to the fourth Heaven
and they said the same; and then he ascended
with him to the fifth Heaven and they said the
same; and then
he ascended with him to the sixth Heaven and
they said the same; then he ascended with him to
the seventh Heaven and they said the same. On
each Heaven there were prophets whose names
he had mentioned and of whom I remember Idris
on the second Heaven, Aaron on the fourth
Heavens another
prophet whose name I don't remember, on the
fifth Heaven, Abraham on the sixth Heaven, and
Moses on the seventh Heaven because of his
privilege of talking to Allah directly. Moses said
(to Allah), "O Lord! I thought that none would be
raised up above me."
But Gabriel ascended with him (the Prophet) for
a distance above that, the distance of which only
Allah knows, till he reached the Lote Tree
(beyond which none may pass) and then the
Irresistible, the Lord of Honor and Majesty
approached and came closer till he (Gabriel) was
about two bow lengths or (even) nearer. (It is
said that it was Gabriel who approached and
came closer to the Prophet. (Fate Al-Bari Page
263, 264, Vol. 17). Among the things which Allah
revealed to him then, was: "Fifty prayers were
enjoined on his followers in a day and a night."
Then the Prophet descended till he met Moses,
and then Moses stopped him and asked, "O
Muhammad ! What did your Lord en join upon
you?
" The Prophet replied," He enjoined upon me to
perform fifty prayers in a day and a night." Moses
said, "Your followers cannot do that; Go back so
that your Lord may reduce it for you and for
them." So the Prophet turned to Gabriel as if he
wanted to consult him about that issue. Gabriel
told him of his opinion, saying, "Yes, if you wish."
So Gabriel ascended with him to the Irresistible
and said while he was in his place, "O Lord,
please lighten our burden as my followers cannot
do that." So Allah deducted for him ten prayers
where upon he returned to Moses who stopped
him again and kept on sending him back to his
Lord till the enjoined prayers were reduced to
only five prayers.
Then Moses stopped him when the prayers had
been reduced to five and said, "O Muhammad!
By Allah, I tried to persuade my nation, Bani
Israel to do less than this, but they could not do it
and gave it up. However, your followers are
weaker in body, heart, sight and hearing, so
return to your Lord so that He may lighten your
burden." The Prophet turned towards Gabriel for
advice and Gabriel did not disapprove of that. So
he ascended with him for the fifth time. The
Prophet said, "O Lord,
my followers are weak in their bodies, hearts,
hearing and constitution, so lighten our burden."
On that the Irresistible said, "O Muhammad!" the
Prophet replied, "Labbaik and Sa'daik." Allah
said, "The Word that comes from Me does not
change, so it will be as I enjoined on you in the
Mother of the Book.
" Allah added, "Every good deed will be rewarded
as ten times so it is fifty (prayers) in the Mother
of the Book (in reward) but you are to perform
only five (in practice)."
The Prophet returned to Moses who asked,
"What have you done?" He said, "He has
lightened our burden: He has given us for every
good deed a tenfold reward." Moses said, "By
Allah! I tried to make Bani Israel observe less
than that, but they gave it up. So go back to your
Lord that He may lighten your
burden further." Allah's Apostle said, "O Moses!
By Allah, I feel shy of returning too many times
to my Lord." On that Gabriel said, "Descend in
Allah's Name
." The Prophet then woke while he was in the
Sacred Mosque (at Mecca). "For so who ever
GOD guides no one can misguide, and who so
ever GOD misguides no man can guide." The
obvious question is asked, " why would
GOD misguide someone." The answer is that
when a person turns away from GOD then GOD
makes easy for them their way of ignorance, just
as when a person oppositely asks GOD to guide
him, GOD opens up the ways of guidance and
mercy. This is the balance beam that we are tight
rope walking on.
Chapter Five- Revelations and Judgment
Day (Revelatory Crisis)

One thing that Jews, Christians, and Muslims


share is the belief in the day of Judgment..
This is the day that we will held in account for all
the things we have said and did.
No other religion has so many details about
coming of this day than ISLAM.
The Christian book of Revelations is a known
account detailing things that are to come,
and the most quoted in the western world. All
three of these religions hold the belief
in the coming of the Messiah in the last days.
Islam and Christianity are the only two
that believe Jesus Christ the Messiah has already
come and ascended into heaven and will return
to earth in the final wars between the believers
and non-believers that will be led by the anti-
Christ. I have heard much talk of the coming
wars, and of course that famous number 666.
Some researchers have said that mankind started
off wrong eating the apple against GODS will and
finish of on the
wrong foot with the coming technology of the
Apple computer systems and the wide known
introduction of the computer implant chips.
Many so called prophets and masters have been
trying to predict who might be this anti-Christ
false prophet that will lead the world against the
true Messiah in the final confrontation of good
and evil. All this has been cleared up in the
Islamic faith and great
detail and specifics have been given from the last
Prophet of GOD Muhammad. Let us take a peek
at the coming events that will effect all the
nations of the world. The Anti-Christ or False
Christ in Islam is called the Dajjal in Arabic.

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 553:


Narrated Ibn Umar:
Once Allah's Apostle stood amongst the people,
glorified and praised Allah as He deserved and
then mentioned the Dajjal (Anti-Christ)
saying, "l warn you against him (i.e. the Dajjal)
and there was no prophet but warned his nation
against him. No doubt, Noah warned his
nation against him but I tell you about him
something of which no prophet told his nation
before me. You should know that he is one-eyed,
and Allah is not one-eyed."
Volume 4, Book 55, Number 554:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Shall I not tell you about
the Dajjal a story of which no prophet told his
nation? The Dajjall is one-eyed and will bring
with him what will resemble Hell and Paradise,
and what he will call Paradise will be actually
Hell; so I warn you (against him) as Noah
warned his nation against him."
Book 001, Number 0296:
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira
that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon
him) observed: When three things appear
faith will not benefit one who has not previously
believed or has derived no good from his faith:
the rising of the sun in its place of setting, the
Dajjal, and the beast of the earth.
IRAQ and SYRIA
Abu Nadhrah says: "We were sitting in the
company of Jabir bin Abdullah (R.A.) when he
said: 'Soon the people of IRAQ will
neither receive any food (grain) nor any money.'"
We asked, "Why would such a thing happen?" He
replied, "Because of the non-Arabs."
(i.e they will prevent food from going into Iraq,
in the form of "sanctions" to this day.) He then
said: "Soon the people of Shaam (SYRIA) will
neither receive any money nor grain." We asked
as to why this would happen. He replied:
"Because of the Romans (Christians)."

Note: Rasulullah,Muhammed, (Sallallahu Alayhi


Wassallam) has exhorted the regular recital of
Suratul Kahf (THE CAVE) which will most
certainly save one from the Evils of Dajjal.
Hadhrat Imraan bin Husain (R.A.) relates that, "I
heard Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam)
saying: "Since the birth of Adam (A.S.) till the
advent of Qiyamah there is no fitnah (evil, test)
much greater that of Dajjal."
Hadhrat Huzaifah (R.A.) says, Dajjal will be blind
in his left eye. He will have very thick hair on his
body and he will also have his own type of Jannat
(Heaven) and Jahannam (Hell) with him:
Although his Jannat will appear as Jannat, in
reality it will be Jahannam and likewise though
his Jahannam will appear to be Jahannam, in
reality it will be Jannat.
(Hadith: Muslim)
Imraan bin Husain (R.A.) says Rasulullah
(Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Those who
hear about Dajjal should stay far from him. By
Allah! A person will approach him thinking him
to be a Believer, but on seeing his amazing feats
he will become his follower."
Ubadah bin Saamit (R.A.) once said, "I have
explained Dajjal to you but I fear that you might
not have understood. Maseeh Dajjal will be short,
and his legs will be crooked. The hair on his head
will be extremely twisted. He will have one eye
(with which he can see, and this is the protruding
eye about which other ahadeeth inform us) while
his other eye will be totally flat. It will neither be
deep (in its socket) nor protruding.

If you still have any doubt regarding him then


remember that your Sustainer (Rabb,LORD) is
not one-eyed. (Because Dajjal will eventually
claim to be Allah). In a lengthy Hadith narrated
by Abu Saeed (R.A.), Rasulullah (Salallahu
Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said:
"Dajjal will come but it will be prohibited and
impossible for him to enter Madina. He will set
up camp in a barren land outside Madina. One
person who will be the best of persons will
confront him by saying: "I bear witness that you
are the very Dajjal about whom Rasulullah
(Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has informed us."
Dajjal will say to his followers, "If I kill this
person and then revive him, you people will still
doubt me?" They will reply, "No."
He will then kill this person, (according to
another narration he will split this person in two)
and thereafter revive him. This person will say, "I
am totally convinced more than ever before that
you definitely are Dajjal."
Dajjal will attempt to kill this person again but
his efforts will now be in vain.
(According to a hadith, after this incident, Dajjal
will not be able to harm anyone.)
Hadhrat Anas (R.A.) says that
Rasulullah,Muhammed, (Salallahu Alayhi
Wasallam) said: "Dajjal will come and finally
reach the outskirts of Madina. There will be three
tremors. At that time, all the disbelievers and
hypocrites will flee (from Madina).
In this way Madina Munawwarah will be purified
of all the evil hypocrites.
Hadhrat Asma bint Yazeed (R.A.) narrates that
Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) once
came to my house and there he spoke about
Dajjal. He said that before the emergence of
Dajjal there will be three spells of drought. In one
year the skies will withhold one third of its rains,
causing the earth to withhold one third of its
produce. In the second year the skies will
withhold two thirds of its rains, causing the earth
to withhold two thirds of its produce. In the third
year, the skies will withhold all its water and
there will be no crops that year. All animals, be
they hooved or toothed, will die as a result. The
greatest evil of Dajjall will be to approach anyone
and ask him: "If I bring your camel back to life,
will you then believe that I am your Rabb?"
This person will reply, "Most certainly."
Thereafter Shaytaan,Satan, (from the many
Shayateen who will always accompany Dajjal)
will appear before this person in the form of his
camel with a fat hump and fully laden udders.
Likewise Dajjal will appear before another
person whose father and brother have long
passed away and ask him, "If I bring your father
and brother back to life will you believe that I am
your Rabb?" This person will reply, "Why not?"
Shaytaan will once again take on the appearance
of his brother and father...
(Ahmad) Hadhrat Mughira ibn Shu'ba (R.A.)
says that, "No one asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wassallam) about Dajjal as much as
myself. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam)
said to me, "How can he possibly harm you?" I
said: "People are saying that he will have with
him a mountain of bread (provisions) and a river
of water."
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) said:
"In the sight of Allah he is much more disgraced
than that. (i.e. Allah knows full well that in reality
Dajjal has nothing with him, and all that which
appears to be with him is but deception).
(Bukhari and Muslim).
Other Ahadeeth regarding Dajjal inform us that:
He will emerge between Shaam and Iraq, and his
emergence will become known when he is in
Isfahaan at a place called Yahudea.
The Yahudis (Jews) of Isfahaan will be his main
followers. Apart from having mainly Yahudi
followers, he will have a great number of women
followers as well.
He will have with him fire and water, but in
reality the fire will be cold water while that what
appears to be cold water will in reality be a
blazing fire. Those who obey him will enter "his
Jannat,heaven" while those who disobey him will
enter "his Jahannam,hell."
There will be a thick fingernail-like object in his
left eye.
The letters "Kaa" "Faa" "Raa" will appear on his
forehead and will be deciphered by all
Mu'mineen regardless of them being literate or
not.
He will have a wheatish complexion.
He will travel at great speeds and his means of
conveyance will be a gigantic mule. It is said that
he will play beautiful music which will attract the
music lovers.
Dajjal will lay claim to prophet hood.
He will then lay claim to Divinity.
He will perform unusual feats.
He will travel the entire world. He will send down
rains upon those who believe in him, which in
turn will cause good crops to grow, trees to bear
fruit and cattle to grow fat.
He will cause drought to those who disbelieve in
him, resulting in starvation and hardship for
them. During those trying times the Mu'mineen
(believers) will satiate their hunger through the
recitation of Subhanallah(Glory to GOD) and
La'ilaha Ilallahu(There is no GOD but the one
GOD). The hidden treasures will spill forth at his
command. He will stay on this Earth for a period
of forty days; the length of the first day will be
one year, the second day will be equal to one
month, the third day will be equal to a week and
the remaining days will be normal. He will be
unable to enter Makkah because the Malaikah
will be guarding the Holy City and nor will he be
able to enter Madina because there will be
Malaikah guarding each of the seven entrances to
Madina; From Madina he will proceed towards
Shaam where Imaam Mahdi will be stationed.
Finally Isa (A.S.) will descend from the heavens
and pursue him and eventually kill him at
present day Lydda (Baad Lud).
from: "Signs of Qiyamah"
by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali

Let us take a look at Chapter 75 Al Qiyamah (


THE RESURRECTION) from the QURAN

1. I do swear by the Resurrection Day;


2. And I do swear by the self-reproaching soul:
3. Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
4. Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the
very tips of his fingers.
5. But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in
front of him.
6. He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
7. At length, when the Sight is dazed,
8. And the moon is buried in darkness.
9. And the sun and moon are joined together,-
10. That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"
11. By no means! No place of safety!
12. Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of
rest.
13. That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward,
and all that he put back.
14. Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
15. Even though he were to put up his excuses.
16. Move not thy tongue concerning the (Quran) to make
haste therewith.
17. It is for Us to collect it and to recite it:
18. But when We have recite it, follow thou its recital (as
promulgated):
19. Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it
clear):
20. Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
21. And leave alone the Hereafter.
22. Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and
beauty);-
23. Looking towards their Lord;
24. And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
25. In the thought that some back-breaking calamity
was about to be inflicted on them;
26. Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its
exit),
27. And there will be a cry, "Who is an enchanter (to
restore him)?"
28. And he will think that it was (the time) of Parting;
29. And one leg will be joined with another:
30. That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
31. So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-
32. But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned
away!
33. Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!
34. Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
35. Again, woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
36. Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled,
(without purpose)?
37. Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
38. Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (Allah)
make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
39. And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
40. Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the
dead?
Who are the Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj?

by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali

The Ya'jooj(GOG) and Ma'jooj (MAGOG)


During the reign of Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) (JESUS)
people will live an extremely peaceful life filled
with prosperity and abundance. Then the wall
which imprisons Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj will break
and they will surge forth in large numbers.
"But when Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj are let loose and
they rush headlong down every hill" (Quran
21:97)
Who are the Ya'jooj and Majooj?
Zul Qarnain (A.S.) who was a pious and just
Ruler traveled to many lands and conquered
them, establishing justice and the Law of Allah
therein. Allah Ta'ala provided him with all forms
and material strength through which he was able
to carry out his conquests and missions. He once
carried out a mission in three directions, the far
west, the far east, and then in a northerly
direction. It was here that he came across a tribe
of people who complained to him about the
tribes of Ya'jooj and Majooj which inhabited the
land behind two huge mountains and often
emerged from behind these mountains to
perpetrate acts of anarchy and plunder among
them. They requested Zul Qarnain (A.S.) to erect
a barrier between themselves and the tribes of
Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj so that they could be saved
from their atrocities. With the material strength
at his disposal, Zul Qarnain (A.S.) enlisted their
physical labor and set about erecting a high wall
between the two mountains. The height of the
wall or its exact length is unknown. What is
known is that the height of this wall reaches that
of the summit of both mountains. It is made with
blocks or sheets of iron, which is further
strengthened by molten lead. In this manner
Ya'jooj and Majooj are unable to scale the wall, or
cross it, except when it is the will of Allah. "And
when the promise of my Rabb(LORD)
approaches, He will level it to dust" (Quran
18:98)
They are situated in a land of ice which is hidden
from our gazes and the exact location of which is
unknown. Though many interpretations do exist
in this respect, none of these can be said to
absolute.
Ya'jooj and Majooj are human beings and
according to a narration they are from the
progeny of Yafith ibn Nooh (A.S.).
Some Ahadith (talk of the Prophet
Muhammad)... In a lengthy hadith by Hadhrat
Nawwas ibn Sam'aan (R.A.) Rasulullah
(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)(Muhammad) is
reported to have said: "...Allah will send
revelation upon Eesa (JESUS) (A.S.) that 'Such a
creation of mine is now going to emerge that no
power will be able to stop them. Therefore take
my servants and ascend the Mount of Toor.' Then
Ya'jooj and Majooj will emerge and surge forth in
all their fury. When those from among them who
constitute the former part of their army pass the
lake of Tiberias (which is in northern Palestine),
they will drink up all the water of that lake and by
the time those that constitute the latter part of
that same army pass the lake, they will say,
"There used to be water here (long ago). When
they reach the Mount of Khamr in Jerusalem,
they will arrogantly proclaim: 'We have
conquered the people of the earth, now we will
annihilate those in the sky.' So saying they will
fire their arrows towards the sky. When the
arrows return to the ground they will be blood
stained.
In the meantime, Eesa (A.S.) will be on the
Mount of Toor with his followers. At that time
the head of and ox will be as valuable as is a
hundred dinars to you in this day. [This indicates
the scarcity of provisions]. Faced with these
hardships, Eesa (A.S.) and his followers will
make dua unto Allah (to remove this calamity).
As a result, Allah will cause sores to appear on
the necks of each and every individual of these
people which will cause their death suddenly.
When Eesa (A.S.) and his followers descend from
the Mount of Toor there will not be a single space
on the land where the dead rotting bodies of
these people is not littered, giving off a
horrendous odor. Eesa (A.S.) and his followers
will once more supplicate unto Allah as a result
of which Allah will send down huge birds whose
necks will be as thick as that of the necks of
camels, and they will dump these bodies in a
place where Allah wills. (According to a narration
by Tirmidhi, they will be dumped at a place
called Nahbal).
Allah Ta'ala will then send down a heavy rain, the
waters of which will flow in every part of the
earth cleansing it thoroughly. It will rain for a
period of forty days.
The Muslims will then burn the bows and arrows
of the Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj for a period of seven
years.
Allah will order the earth to yield forth its crops
in abundance and there will be such blessing and
prosperity that one pomegranate will be
sufficient for a whole group while the peel thereof
will suffice to cast a shadow over them. The milk
of one camel will be sufficient for many groups
while one milk giving cow will be sufficient for a
whole tribe. One milk giving goat will be
sufficient for a whole family..."
(Muslim)
Hadhrat Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A.) narrates that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
"On the day of Qiyamah(Resurrection and
Judgment) Allah will say to Adam (A.S.) to pick
out the Jahannamis(from the hellfire) from his
entire progeny. Adam (A.S.) will ask: 'O Rabb,
who are they?' Allah will say: 'Nine hundred and
ninety nine of a thousand are Jahannami while
the one is a Jannati (from the paradise).'
On hearing this the Sahaba were overtaken by
fear and they asked "O Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wasallam), who will that one Janniti be?'
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
'Do not grieve, the nine hundred and ninety nine
will be Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj while you will be the
Jannati."' (i.e. your numbers in relation to them
will be one in a thousand).
(Bukhari and Muslim)
Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Umar (R.A.) says that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
"Allah Ta'ala divided mankind into ten parts.
Nine tenths constitute Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj while
the remaining tenths constitutes the rest of
mankind."
Hadhrat Zainab bint Jahsh (R.A.) says: "...once
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) awoke
from such a sleep that his face was red and these
words were on his tongue: 'There is none worthy
of worship except Allah. Destruction is upon the
Arabs on account of the evil which has come
close to them. Today a hole as big as this has
opened up in the wall of Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj.'
..and Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)
indicated the size of the hole forming a ring with
his index finger and thumb."
(Bukhari and Muslim)
Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.) narrates that every
day Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj break (dig) through the
wall erected by Zul Qarnain (A.S.) until they
reach the end of it to that extent that they can
actually see the light on the other side. They then
return (home) saying that 'We will break through
tomorrow.' But Allah Ta'ala causes the wall to
revert to its original thickness and the next day
they start digging through the wall all over again,
and this process continues each day until as long
as Allah wills them to remain imprisoned. When
Allah wishes them to be released, then at the end
of the day they will say, "If Allah wills, tomorrow
we will break through." The following day they
will find the wall as they had left it the previous
day (i.e. it will not have returned to its original
state) and after breaking the remaining part of it
they will emerge."
(Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)
Commenting on the above hadith, Allamah Ibn
Arabi says, Three miracles are evident in this
Hadith:
1.) It never occurs to these tribes that they must
continue work during the night. After all, they are
in such large numbers that they can easily
delegate the work among themselves and work in
shifts. But Allah does not allow this thought to
occur to them.
2.) It never occurs to them that they can merely
cross the mountains or scale the wall, which they
can do through the aid of equipment and
implements which they possess in large numbers.
According to a narration by Wahab ibn
Munabbah it is known that these tribes are
agriculturists and artisans possessing various
types of equipment.
3.) The thought of saying "If Allah wills" never
enters their minds and it will only occur to them
to say it when Allah wills that they be released.

by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali
CONCERNING THE MAHDI
Imam Mahdi (Descendent of Prophet
Muhammad PBUH)
by Mufti A.H. Elias and Mohammad Ali ibn
Zubair Ali
Who Is Imam Mahdi?
Note: Please do not confuse Imam Mahdi with
Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) Alayhis Salaam. They are
two different persons, and both will come during
the last days. According to Hadeeth, Imam
Mahdi will appear first, and Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
will appear during Imam Mahdi's lifetime.
Furthermore, only Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will be able
to kill Dajjal (the "anti-Christ").

The term "MAHDI" is a title meaning "The


Guided one".
Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas'ood (R.A.) says that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said,
"This world will not come to an end until one
person from my progeny does not rule over the
Arabs, and his name will be the same as my
name." (Tirmidhi)
Hadhrat Ali (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah
(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "Even if only a
day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet Allah will
surely send a man from my family who will fill
this world with such justice and fairness, just as
it initially was filled with oppression." (Abu
Dawood)
His Features
Hadhrat Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A.) relates that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "Al
Mahdi will be from my progeny. His forehead
will be broad and his nose will be high. He will
fill the world with justice and fairness at a time
when the world will be filled with oppression. He
will rule for seven years."
Other ahadeeth inform us that:
* He will be tall
* He will be fair complexioned
* His facial features will be similar to those of
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)
* His character will be exactly like that of
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)
* His father's name will be Abdullah
* His mother's name will be Aamina
* He will speak with a slight stutter and
occasionally this stutter will frustrate him
causing him to hit his hand upon his thigh.
* His age at the time of his emergence will be
forty years
* He will receive Knowledge from Allah.
His Emergence and Rule
Hadhrat Umme Salmah (R.A.) narrates that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "
After the death of a Ruler there will be some
dispute between the people. At that time a citizen
of Madina will flee (from Madinah) and go to
Makkah. While in Makkah, certain people will
approach him between Hajrul Aswad and
Maqaame Ibraheem, and forcefully pledge their
allegiance to him.
Thereafter a huge army will proceed from Syria
to attack him but when they will be at Baida,
which is between Makkah and Madina, they will
be swallowed into the ground.
On seeing this, the Abdaals of Shaam as well as
large numbers of people from Iraq will come to
him and pledge their allegiance to him. Then a
person from the Quraish, whose uncle will be
from the Bani Kalb tribe will send an army to
attack him, only to be overpowered, by the will of
Allah. This (defeated) army will be that of the
Bani Kalb. Unfortunate indeed is he who does
not receive a share from the booty of the Kalb.
This person (Imam Mahdi) will distribute the
spoils of war after the battle. He will lead the
people according to the Sunnat and during his
reign Islam will spread throughout the world. He
will remain till seven years (since his emergence).
He will pass away and the Muslims will perform
his Janazah salaat." (Abu Dawood)
According to a Hadeeth, Sayyidena Eesa (A.S.)
will lead the Janaazah of Imam Mahdi (A.S.).
While the people will be pledging their allegiance
to Imaam Mahdi, a voice from the unseen will
call out:
"This is the representative of Allah,
The Mahdi, listen to him and obey him"
This announcement which will be heard by all
those present will establish his authenticity.
Another sign which will indicate the authenticity
of Imaam Mahdi will be that in the Ramadhaan
prior to his emergence an eclipse of the sun and
moon will occur.
Hadhrat Abu Umamah (R.A.) says that
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
"There will be four peace agreements between
you and the Romans. The fourth agreement will
be mediated through a person who will be from
the progeny of Hadhrat Haroon (A.S.) and will be
upheld for seven years."
The people asked: "O Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wasallam), who will be the Imaam of the
people at the time?"
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
"He will be from my progeny and will be forty
years of age. His face will shine like a star and he
will have a black spot on his left cheek. He will
don two "Qutwaani" cloaks and will appear
exactly as a person from the Bani Israeel..."
(Tabrani)
According to hadith narrated by Abu Saeed
Khudri (R.A.) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi
Wasallam) said: "...(regarding the rule of Imaam
Mahdi) the skies will rain down in abundance
and the earth will yield forth its crop in
abundance, and those alive will desire that those
who have already passed away should have been
alive to enjoy this prosperity..."
Hadhrat Buraidah (R.A.) says that Rasulullah
(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "There will be
many armies after me. You must join that army
which will come from Khurasaan." (Ibn Adi)
Abu Hurairah (R.A.) says that Rasulullah
(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "(Armies
carrying) black flags will come from Khurasaan.
No power will be able to stop them and they will
finally reach Eela (Baitul Maqdas) where they
will erect their flags."

already been exhausted and only one day is left
(before the day of judgment), Allah will expand
that day to such a length of time, as to
accommodate the kingdom of a person from my
Ahlul-Bayt who will be called by my name. He
will fill out the earth with peace and justice as it
will have been full of injustice and tyranny (by
then)."

suffer a great affliction and they shall be
forcefully expelled from their homes after my
death; then there will come people from the East
carrying black flags, and they will ask for some
good to be given to them, but they shall be
refused service; as such, they will wage war and
emerge victorious, and will be offered that which
they desired in the first place, but they will refuse
to accept it till they pass it to a man from my
family (Ahlul-Bayt) appears to fill the Earth with
justice as it has been filled with corruption. So
whoever reaches that (time) ought to come to
them even if crawling on the ice/snow since
among them is the Vice-regent of Allah
(Khalifatullah) al-Mahdi."

Jesus (Isa) A.S. in Islam, and his Second Coming
by Mufti A.H. Elias
I. Jesus (A.S.) In Islam
Muslims do believe that Isa (A.S.) was sent down
as a Prophet of Allah (God), but he (Jesus) is not
God or Lord, nor the son of God. Muslims do not
believe that Isa (A.S.), also known as Jesus by
Christians and others, is dead or was ever
crucified. We believe that he was raised to heaven
and is there, and will descend at the appointed
time, end all wars, and bring peace to the world.
Like Jesus (A.S.), Muhammad (Peace be upon
him) is also a Prophet and Messenger.
Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) is the last Prophet,
though, and there is none after him. Hence,
Islam is the last religion, complete, with the Holy
Qur'an as the unchanged and perfect word of
God for over 1400 years, as God promised to
preserve it till the last day for all of humankind,
unlike sacred texts of other religions which have
multiple versions and are "revised" periodically.
God, or Allah in Arabic, is Divine and Supreme
Being and Creator.
What the Holy Qur'an says about Jesus:
They slew him not, nor did they crucify him but it
was made dubious to them.
(Holy Qur'an, Surah Nisaa, Verse 157)
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) himself told of the coming of
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). In the
Bible, Jesus (A.S.) says,
If you love me, Keep my commandments. And I
will pray to the Father and He shall give you
another comforter that he may abide with you
forever.
(Bible, John 14-15/16)

But when the comforter is come, whom I will


send unto you from the Father, even the spirit of
Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he
shall testify of me, and he also shall bear witness,
because ye have been with me from the
beginning.
(Bible, John 15-26/27)

I have yet many things to say unto you, but you


cannot bear them now. How be it when he, the
spirit of Truth will come, he will guide you into
all truth, for he shall speak not of himself, but
whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak, and
he will show you things to come. He shall glorify
me, for he shall receive of mine, and he shall
show it unto you.
(Bible, John 16-12/14)
Ulema (learned scholars in Islam) have said that
the person who is described by Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
to come after him - in the above verse - does not
comply with any other person but Prophet
Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
In this case, the "comforter" he mentions is none
other than Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon
him) and his laws and way of life (Shariah) and
Book (Holy Qur'an) are those that Hadhrat Isa
(A.S.) asks his followers to abide by.
The "person" whom Jesus (A.S.) prophesized will
come after him, is called Pargaleeta in the Bible .
This word was deleted by interpreters and
translators and changed at times to "Spirit of
Truth" and at other times, to "comforter" and
sometimes "Holy Spirit." The original Greek and
its meaning is "one whom people praise
exceedingly." The sense of the word, then, is
applicable to the word Muhammad in Arabic,
since Muhammad means "the praised one."
Jesus (A.S.) also says in the Bible,
... and a little while and you shall not see me; and
again a little while, you shall see me because I go
to the Father.
(Bible, John 16:16)
... and the Holy Qur'an says,
And surely they slew him not. But Allah (God)
raised him unto Himself.
(Holy Qur'an, Surah Nisaa, Verse 157-158)
As such, Muslims believe that Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
was raised to heaven. According to Hadith, he is
on the second heaven. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu
Alayhi Wasallam=Peace be upon him)
mentioned, "During the Meraj (Ascension), I met
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) on the second heaven. I found
him of medium stature, reddish white. His body
was so clean and clear, that it appeared as though
he had just performed ghusal (ablution,
cleansing of the entire body) and come." In
another Hadith, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi
Wasallam) mentioned to the Jews that, "
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) is not dead, he will most
surely return to you before Qiyamat (the Day of
Judgment)."
May Allah Guide all people to the Truth. Aameen.

II. Hadhrat Isa's JESUS (A.S.) Descension The
Physical Features of Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
He will resemble the famous Sahabi (A.S.)
Hadhrat Urwa bin Masoodi (R.A.). He will be of
average height and red and white in color. His
hair spread to the shoulders, straight, neat and
shining as after a bath. On bending his head, it
will seem as if pearls are falling. He will have an
amour on his body. He will be wearing two pieces
of cloth light yellow in color.
His Descension
He will descend on a Jamaat (group) that will be
righteous at the time and comprising of 800 men
and 400 women. The people will be preparing for
war at the time against Dajjal (the anti-Christ). It
will be time for Fajr prayers, and Imam Mahdi
will be the Amir (leader). From the darkness of
the dawn, a sound will suddenly be heard that
"one who listens to your pleas has come" -- the
righteous people will look everywhere and their
eyes will fall on Isa (A.S.). Briefly, at the time of
Fajr, Isa (A.S.) will descend. When descending,
Isa (A.S.)'s hands will be on the shoulders of two
angels (according to another source (Kab Abrar),
a cloud will carry him). On their insistence
Hadhrat Isa will introduce himself. He will
inquire about their enthusiasm and thoughts on
Jihad against Dajjal. Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will
descend on the eastern side near the Minaret in
Damascus (or in Baitul-Muqaddus by Imam
Mahdi). At the time Imam Mahdi will have
proceeded forward to lead the Fajr Salaat. The
Iqamat of the Salaat would have been said
(already recited) and Imam Mahdi will call
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) for Imamat (to lead the
prayer), but he (Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)) will instead
tell Imam Mahdi to lead the prayer since the
Iqamat of that Salaat has already been said for
him. Thus Imam Mahdi will lead the prayer, and
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will follow him. After the
ruku, he will make this statement: "Allah has
killed Dajjal and the Muslims have appeared."
The Killing of Dajjal (anti-Christ) and the Victory
of the Muslims
After the completion of Fajr Salaat
(congregational dawn prayers), Hadhrat Isa
(A.S.) will open the door behind him where
Dajjal accompanied by 70,000 Yahudis (Jews)
will be. He will indicate with his hand to move
away between him (Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)) and
Dajjal. Dajjal will then see Hadhrat Isa (A.S.). At
that time every Kafir on whom the breath of
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will reach, will die. His breath
will reach up to the distance of his eyesight. The
Muslims will then come down from the
mountains and break loose on the army of Dajjal.
There will be war, Dajjal will retreat, and
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will pursue Dajjal. Hadhrat
Isa (A.S.) will have two flexible swords and one
shield with him and with these he will kill Dajjal
at the Gate of Hudd. He will show the Muslims
the blood of Dajjal which will get on his shield.
Eventually the Yahudis will be selected and
killed. The swine will be killed and the cross
broken. People will revert to Islam. Wars will
end, and people will return to their respective
countries. One Jamaat (group) of Muslims will
remain in his service and companionship.
Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will go to Fajr Rawha and
perform Haj or Umrah (or both) from there. He
will also go to the grave of Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wasallam) and present his greetings and
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) will
reply. People will live comfortable lives. The wall
of Yajooj and Majooj (Gog and Magog) will then
break.
III. The Blessings of Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) (A.S.)
1 Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will descend and stay on
earth.
2 His descension will be in the last era of the
Ummat.
3 He will be a just ruler and a fair judge.
4 His ummat will be the Khalifa (deputies) of
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).
5 He will act himself and instruct others on the
Qur'an and Hadith (Shariat/Tradition of Islam).
6 He will lead people in Salaat (Prayer).
7 He will stay on earth for a period of 40 years
after descending. The will be the best era of the
Ummat after the first era of Islam.
8 Allah will protect his companions from
Jahannam.
9 Those who will save the Deen of Islam by
associating themselves with Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
will be amongst the most loved by Allah Ta'ala.
10 During this period all other religions and
mazhabs besides Islam will perish, hence there
will be no kuffaars (non-believers) in the world.
11 Jihad will be stopped.
12 No Khiraaj will be taken.
13 Nor Jizya (protection tax) money from the
kafirs (non-believers)
14 Wealth and property will be in surplus to such
an extent that there will be no one to accept the
wealth of the other (everyone will be
independent).
15 Receiving Zakaat (Alms-giving, Charity to
poor) and Saadaqa will be discarded (as there
will be no poor to receive them!).
16 The people will love the sajda (prostration to
God) more than the world and what it consists of.
17 All types of Deeni (religious) and worldly
blessings will descend on earth (many halaal
(lawful) things will be created).
18 There will be peace, harmony and tranquility
during the time of Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)'s stay in the
world.
19 There will be no animosity for a period of
seven years, even between two persons.
20 All hearts will be free from miserliness, envy,
hatred, malice and jealousy.
21 For a period of forty years no one will fall ill or
die.
22 Venom will be taken out of all venomous
animals.
23 Snakes and scorpions will not harm anyone to
the extent that if a child put his hand in its
mouth, he will not be harmed.
24 Will animals will not harm anyone.
25 If a man will pass a lion, he will not be
troubled or harmed, or even if any girl will open
its mouth to test if it will do anything.
26 The camels will graze among lions, cheetahs
with cattle and the jackals with goats.
27 The fertility of the land will increase to such
an extent that even if a seed is planted in a hard
rock, it will sprout.
28 A pomegranate will be so huge that a jamaat
will be able to eat it and the people will use its
peel as shade.
29 There will be so much barakaat (blessing) in
milk that a camel will suffice for a huge jamaat, a
cow for a tribe and a goat for a family.
30 In short, life will be most pleasant after the
descension of Jesus (A.S.).
His Marriage, Death and Deputies
After his descension on earth, Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)
will marry. He will have children, and he will
remain on earth 19 years after marriage. He will
pass away and Muslims will perform his Janaza
Salaat and bury him net to Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wasallam). (Tirmidhi)

Signs That Will Precede Him
1) A General Sign
There are many signs that will precede him; a
general and very important sign is that he will
come at a time when there is great confusion,
intense disputes and violent death. When people
are afflicted by disturbances and fear. Calamities
will fall upon the people, so much so that a man
shall not find shelter to shelter him from
oppression. There will be many battles and
fitnaas before his appearance. Every time a fitnaa
has come to an end, another will start, spread
and intensify. The people will be troubled to such
extent that they will long for death. It is then that
Imaam Mahdi will be sent.
Abu Saeed al-Khudri has reported that the
Messenger of Allah said, ''A man will emerge
from the depth of Damascus. He will be called
Suffyani. Most of those who follow him will be
from the tribe of Kalb. He will kill by ripping the
stomachs of women and even kill the children. A
man from my family will appear in Haram, the
news of his advent will reach the Suffyani and he
will send forth one of his armies. He (referring to
Imam Mahdi) will defeat them. They will then
travel with whoever remains until they come to a
desert and they will be swallowed . None will be
saved except the one who had informed the
others about them. '' (Mustadarak)

6) The Emergence of Haris-Al-Harrath and
Mansur
Hazrat Ali reported that the Prophet (Mishkat)
7) An army will perish in Baidah
Once he has appeared an army that has come to
fight him will perish in Baidah (a flat piece of
land next to Madinah facing the direction of
Makkah).
Umme-Salama (R.A.) reported that the Prophet .
An army will then be sent to fight him from Syria
, however it will perish in Baidah, between
Makkah and Madinah. When the people see and
hear about this event ,the awliya (God fearing
people) of Syria and Iraq will make Bayat with
him.'' (Abu Daud)
8) A star with a luminous tail will rise from the
east before his emergence. (Al-Iza'ah).
9) A voice in Ramadhan will awaken sleeps and
alarm those that are awake (Ibid)
10) The emergence of al-A'hraj al-Kindi, Abqa
and Ashab before Imam Mahdi (Ibid)
11) The earth will swallow a village near
Damascus (Ibid)
12) An army with black banners will come from
the East (Ibid)
There are many other signs which will precede
Imam Mahdi. For more information read the
relevant Books

The Signs of Imaam Mahdi
1) He will be from the progeny of the Prophet in
character. Hadrat Ali (R.A) once looked at his
son and remarked, "This son of mine is Saiyid
who was named by the Prophet and who will
resemble him in conduct but not in appearance."
(Abu Daud)
4) He will have a shiny forehead and a high
bridge nose. Abu Saeed reported that the Prophet
said, "Three men will be killed at the place where
your treasure is. Each of them will be the son of a
Khalifah but none of them will get hold of the
treasure. Then the black banners will come out of
the east, and they will slaughter you in a way that
has never been seen before. If you see him give
him your allegiance, even if you have to crawl
over ice, because he is the Khalifah of Allah, the
Mahdi." (Ibne Majah)
Only some of the signs that will precede Imaam
Mahdi and of the Mahdi himself have been
gathered in this book. The true Mahdi, the one
referred to in the Ahadith of Prophet ) say, ''You
will make a secure peace with the Byzantines,
then you will fight an enemy behind you, and you
will be victorious, take the boot, and be safe you
will the return and alight in a meadow with
mounds and one of the Christians will raise the
cross and say, 'The cross has conquered'. One of
the Muslims will become angry and smash it, and
the Byzantines will act treacherously and prepare
for battle.''

Conquest of Constantinople
The great war between the Christians and
Muslims will result in the Muslims conquering
Constantinople (which is modern day Istanbul)
without army by the sheer force of Takbeer
(Allahu Akbar).
Abu Hurairah reports that the Prophet has said:
'Between the Great War and the conquest of the
city (Constantinople) there will be six years, and
the Dajjal shall appear in the seventh year,'

Blessings at the time of Imam Mahdi
Once again the Quran and Sunnah will govern
the people, this time by the rightly guided
Khalifh, Imam Mahdi. Islam will gain an upper
hand and will be firmly established in the land.
The oppression, tyranny, and darkness that
prevailed all over the globe will be replaced with
justice, peace and equity. The smile, which was
long forgotten, will be restored on the Muslim
faces and the inhabitants of the Heaven and
Earth will be pleased with him. Everybody will be
happy to the extent that even birds an wild
animals will rejoice in his rule. Heaven will end
rain profusely, livestock will be in abundance,
land will become fertile, and the earth will
become green and sprout with abundant fruit ad
vegetation.
(The above content has been taken from various
hadith, which can be found in Abu-Daud and
from the hadith narrated by Abu-Saeed al-Khudri
in Musnad Ahmad.)
Due to the booty gained from the various
conquest everyone will have so much wealth that
an eyebrow will not even be raised at somebody
else's wealth. Callers will proclaim in the street,
''Is anybody in need of anything?'' Nobody will
respond except one person. In the latter part of
Abu-Saeed al-Khudri's hadith it is mentioned ''A
caller will call 'Who is in need of wealth?' Only
one person will stand (and response to the call
and say I am in need of wealth) he will be told to
go to the treasurer and tell him that the Mahdi
orders you to give some wealth. 'Gather and take
it', he will be told. (He will begin to put it in his
lap, when he realized that nobody else has come
and he was the only one) he will regret it and say
'I was the greediest from among the Ummah of
Muhammad said regarding Mahdi; that a man
will come to him and say, 'Give me, give me'.
Then he will spread his cloth and put in it as
much as he can carry.

His Reign as a Khalifh
There are different narration's regarding his
reign as a Khalifh. Some traditions indicate that
is reign will be seven years like the hadith of
Umme Salama in Abu-Daud, ''He will remain
seven years, then die, and Muslims will pray over
him. '' (Abu-Daud)
Other traditions indicate that his reign will last
seven, eight or nine years like the Hadith of Abu
Saeed in Mustadrak.
Due to different traditions the period of Imaam
Mahdi's reign is disputed. Many Scholars have
taken seven years to be the period of his reign
due to the fact that the Ahadith which indicate
seven years are the most authentic. Other
Scholars like Shah Rafiud-din, after careful
analysis have concluded that the first seven years
if his reign will pass without worry, he will spend
the eight preparing to fight the Dajjal and spend
the ninth with Prophet Isa (Jesus) and the
coming of the last hour, their will arise no matter
more serious than the Dajjal." (Imran-b-
Hussain/ Muslim)
Due to the severity of this turmoil, every Prophet
from the first to the last warned and informed his
people about, the Dajjal and his turmoil. (Anas /
Bukhari, Muslim)
The Dajjal will appear once the Muslim army,
have conquered Constantinople and reached
Syria. Emerging from the east, moving from city
to city he will perform unusual feat and cause
fitna wherever he goes. Before we move onto his
trials many important questions need to be
answered. 'Is he alive?' 'Which signs will precede
him?' 'How will we recognize him?' and so forth.

The story of Hadrat Tamim Dari and the Dajjal
The story of Tamim Dari which follows, answers
the first and most important question, is the
Dajjal alive? and whether Hadrat Tamim Dari
and his companions have seen him when they
were thrown by the waves on to some remote
Island.
Fatimah-bint-Qais reported, "I heard the
proclaimer of the Messenger of Allah said, 'By
Allah, I have not called you together for hope or
for fear, I have called you together because
Tamim ad- Dari who was a Christian, came and
embraced Islam.
He narrated a story to me, which agreed with the
account I had given to you about the Dajjal. He
informed me that he had embarked upon a sea-
boat with thirty men of Lakhm and Jozam. Then
the sea waves played with them for a month and
threw them on to an island when the sun was
about to set. They sat in a small side boat and
landed on the Island. A beast with very coarse
hair met them. They could not tell its front from
its back due to its excessive hair. They asked,
'Woe to thee! Who art thou?" It replied, 'I am a
spy. Go to this man in the monastery, as he is
eager to receive the information you bring.
' Tamim Dari said, 'When it named a man for us,
we fled away from it lest it might be the devil.
Then we hurriedly went on until we entered the
monastery and found a big-bodied man whom we
had never seen before. He was firmly tied up, his
hands tied to his neck, the place between his
knees, and joints tied up with iron chains.' We
asked, 'Woe to thee! What are thou?' He replied,
'You have the power to get my information.
Inform me about yourselves.
' They replied, 'We are people from Arabia, we
embarked upon a sea boat, but the sea waves
played with us for a month and threw us onto
this island. A beast of coarse hairs met us and
said, 'I am a spy. Go to the man in the
monastery.' So we approached you hurriedly. He
asked, 'Tell me about the trees of Baisan. Do they
bear fruit?.' 'Yes' We replied. He said, 'Behold!
Soon they will not yield fruit.' He asked, 'Inform
me of the lake of Tiberias. Is there water in it?'
We replied, 'It is full of water.' He informed us,
'Soon its water will disappear.' He then asked,
'Inform me of the fountain of Zugara. Is there
water in it and do its inhabitants irrigate with the
water of the fountain?' 'Yes, it is full of water and
it's inhabitants irrigate from its water. He asked,
'Inform me of the Prophet of the illiterates. What
does he do?' We said, 'He has just come out of
Makkah and gone to Yathrib.' He asked, 'Have
the Arabs fought with him?' 'Yes' We replied. He
asked, 'How did he treat them' We informed him
that he had got the upper hand of those of the
Arabs who opposed him and they obeyed him.
He said, 'Behold! It is better for them if they obey
him. As for myself I am certainly the Anti-Christ
and it is near that an order will be passed for me
to come out. I shall then come out and travel the
world. I shall leave no village at which I shall not
land within 40 nights except Makkah and Taibah,
which will be forbidden to me. Whenever I wish
to enter one of the two, an angel with a sword in
his hand will encounter me and prevent me there
from. There will be angels on every side to guard
it. The apostle of Allah struck his pulpit with his
staff and said, 'This is Taibah meaning Madinah.
Behold! Did I not tell you?' 'Yes' they replied.
'Behold, he is in the Syrian sea or sea of Yemen;
no, rather he is from the eastern direction. He
then pointed out with his hand to wards the
East.' (Muslim)

Signs that will precede him
The coming of Imaam Mahdi
In light of many Ahadith the Ulama of the Ahlus-
Sunnah are of the opinion that Imaam Mahdi will
come before the Dajjal and the Dajjal will appear
in the later parts of Imaam Mahdi's reign.
The Great Famine
There will be a famine for three years before his
appearance. In the first year of the famine the
heaven will withhold one third of its rain and the
earth one third of its crops. In the second year of
the famine heaven will withhold two thirds of its
rain and the earth will withhold two thirds of its
crops. In the third year there will not be a single
drop of rain and not a single thing will grow and
thus all the animals with hoofs and biting teeth
will die and the Tasbeeh will suffice the believers
hunger. (Asma-b-Yauzeed-Mishkat)
Dajjal's parents
His father will be tall and thin and his nose will
be pointed like a beak while his mother will be fat
with two long hands. They will both remain thirty
years without a child. After thirty years a one
eyed son with biting teeth and of little benefit will
be born to them whose heart will remain awake
while his eyes will sleep. (Abu-Bakara-Tirmidhi)
Back to content
General signs that will precede Dajjal
From the hadith of Umme Shareek which can be
found in Muslim we could conclude the Arabs
will be less in numbers. At the same time we can
conclude from the hadith of Jabir-b-Abdullah
which can be found in An-Nihaya that religious
learning will be at a low and very few people will
be acquainted with religious principles and
doctrines and thus ignorance will prevail.

Dajjal's Emergence
Conquering Constantinople with Takbir, the
Muslims will begin to take the booty. While they
are distributing the war possessions a proclaimer
will proclaim that the Dajjal has appeared and
causing fitna in your homes. On hearing this cry
the Muslims will leave the booty and head
towards Syria1. It will come to their knowledge
that this was a false rumor. However after
reaching Syria the Dajjal will truly emerge. He
will come out from a road between Syria and
Iraq2 and his emergence will become known in
Isfahan3 at a place called Yahoodah. Riding a
white ass4, the two ears of which will be forty
hands apart, 70,000 Jew's of Isfahan will follow
him with hoods on their heads. Also
accompanied by Devils6 and Jewish magicians7
he will first claim Prophethood8 and then God
hood. Traveling as fast as those clouds which are
driven by the winds he will travel to east and
west entering every country, carrying out
murders, pillage, devastation and performing
unusual feats wherever he goes9.

Dajjal's Turmoil
Dajjal's Deception
Two angels resembling two Prophets, one on
either side will accompany him. This will be to
test mankind. Hence Dajjal will ask, "Am I not
your lord? Do I not give life and death?" One of
the angels will reply, "You are a liar." However
nobody will be able to hear this reply besides the
other angel. The second angel addressing the first
angel will say, "You are speaking the truth."
Every body will hear what this second angel said
and will think that an angel is testifying that the
Dajjal is Allah though in reality this second angel
was addressing the first and agreeing with his
reply that you are speaking the truth that the
Dajjal is certainly a liar. (Narrated by Safeena-
Musnad Ahrnad)
He will come to a Bedouin whose parents have
passed away and will say to him, "Will you
believe that I am your Lord if I bring your
parents back to life." He will reply, "Yes." The
devils that are accompanying him will take the
form of his parents and after resembling his
parents will say to him, "Oh child believe in him
and follow him, and he is your Lord.' The
Bedouin will be deceived and forced into
believing him. (Abu Umamah/Ibne Majah)
He will come to another Bedouin and say, "Will
you believe in me as your Lord if I bring your
camel back to life?" "Yes", he will reply. He will
make a figure for him like his camel, which will
have a beautiful odor and a big hump. (Asma-b-
Yazeed /Mishkat)
He will have water and fire with him. As for that
which the people will see as water, in reality will
be fire, which will burn and as for that which
people will see as fire, in reality will be cold,
sweet water. The Prophet's would pray in Salah,
"Oh Allah protect me from the punishment of the
grave and protect me from Dajjal's fitna." (Aisha
/ Bukhari / Muslim)
Staying miles apart
When the Dajjal appears one should stay as far
away from him as possible. The Prophet
Due to the fact that the Jews had become deaf
and blind to the words of God and deviated from
the teachings of Moses and the right path, Allah
honored Jesus spent all day and night conveying
the message of Allah. Unfortunately, in spite of
his tremendous effort the children of Israel did
not respond and accept the message. Seeing that
the poor and weak were becoming inclined
towards him and fearing they would lose their
leadership the Jews secretly tried to kill him.
However Allah saved Prophet Jesus ) was put
over another man and those who differ there in,
are in doubt. They have no certain knowledge.
They are following nothing but conjecture for
surely they did not kill him but Allah raised him
up to him." (Surah Nisa)
Allah says in the Quran "When Allah says, Jesus;
I will take thee to me and I will purify thee of the
unbelievers" (Surah A'li-Imran)
These verses clearly prove that the Jews did not
kill Prophet Jesus is alive in heaven at this
moment in time. We further believe due to the
following verses and authentic Ahadith that
Prophet Jesus descent before Qiyamah is a sign
of Qiyamah. (Ibne Abbas/ Musnad)
Allah says, "There is not a single section of the
people of the book that will certainly believe in
Jesus before his death and on the Day of
Resurrection he will be a witness against them."
(Surah Nisa) This verse clearly indicates that
before the demise of Prophet Jesus has not died;
if so all the Jews would have become believers,
which they have not. He will return before
Qiyamah and it is then that all the people of the
book will believe in him.
Jabir (R.A) reported that the Messenger of Allah
said, "A party of my followers will not cease to
fight for victory until the Day of Resurrection. He
said, then Jesus, son of Mary, will come down.
Their Imaam will say, "Come and lead our
prayer" He will reply, "Some of you are rulers
over others on account of divine honor upon
these people." (Muslim)
Abu Huraira (R.A) reported that the Messenger
of Allah ) will descend amongst you as a just
ruler. He will destroy the cross, kill the swine and
abolish the tax." (Bukhari)
Hadrat Hudaifah-b-Osaid reported: The Holy
Prophet will have three main tasks, when he
descends on the Earth for the second time:
1) The first and most important will be that he
will destroy the Dajjal.
2) Protect the Muslims from the barbarous tribes
of Yajuj and Majuj by taking them to Mount Tur
and then Praying for their (Yajuj and Majuj's)
destruction.
3) Reign as a Khalifh according to the Quran and
Sunnah and elevate Islam.

Prophet Jesus will descend to the white Minaret
(Nawwas-b-Samaan/Muslim) in the east of
Damascus, wearing two garments died with
saffron, placing his hands on the wings of two
angels.
All those that are present will recognize him, as
he will look exactly like the description of the
Prophet . Imaam Mahdi will take a couple of
steps backwards so Prophet Jesus will place his
hands on the Imaam's shoulder and will say, ''Go
forward and lead the prayer as the Iqamah was
made for you'' thus Imaam Mahdi will lead the
prayer. (Abu Umamah/ Ibne-Majah).
After the prayer Prophet Jesus among the
Muslims will begin to dissolve like salt in water
and will begin to flee. Prophet Jesus will kill him
with a small spear.
The Muslims will thereafter defeat and wipe out
Dajjal's army. The Jews will not be able to hide
behind anything on that day. Every time they try
to hide behind a stone, a wall, a tree (except a
boxthorn tree), or animal. Allah will make these
things speak and they will say, ''O servant of
Allah there is a Jew hiding behind me. come kill
him.''

The Wisdom in the Descension of Prophet Jesus
to this world or the second time. A few are listed
below:
1) The Jews believe that they had killed Prophet
Jesus found many virtues of the followers of
Prophet Muhammad . Allah answered his prayer
and he will return for the second time as one of
the followers of Prophet Muhammad .

Prophet Jesus (as) and the Ya'juj Ma'juj (Gog


Magog)
A short period after Prophet Jesus they will be
destroyed. (Nawwas-b-Samaan-Muslim).
More detail regarding them follows in the next
sign.

Prophet Jesus said, "By him whose hands my life


is in, surely the son of Maryam will come down
amongst you as a just ruler. He will break the
cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the tax. Wealth
will be in such abundance that none will care
about it and a single prostration in a Prayer will
be better than the world and all that is in it."
(Abu Huraira/Bukhari, Muslim)
The above hadith clearly indicates that when
Prophet Jesus is the last Prophet. There is no
Prophet to come after him and the Quran has
made this fact very clear.
Allah says in the Qur'an, "Muhammad ( returns
for the second time he will reign as a Khalifh and
not a Prophet, follow the Qur'an and Sunnah and
rule according to it. He will break the cross the
Christians worship (indicating that he will bring
Christianity to an end), elevate and spread Islam
through out the world.
He will also kill the pig which the Christians
consider Halaal to eat (and use) and abolish the
Jizya (tax). In Prophet Jesus . The fertility of the
land will increase to the extent that if a seed is
planted in a rock, it will sprout. 700 mud of
wheat will sprout without ploughing the land.
The earth will produce so much fruit that a large
group of people will sit to eat a bunch of grapes
or a pomegranate and they will be satisfied and
use it's peel as an umbrella. There will also be
blessing in milk. The milk of a single she camel
will be sufficient to satisfy the hunger of a large
group of people. A cow will produce what is
sufficient for a tribe of people, and a sheep will
produce milk, which is sufficient for a family of
people. Horses will be cheap as they will be never
ridden in war and bulls will be expensive, as they
will be needed to plough the land.
Life will be very pleasant and enjoyable after his
descension and the Muslims will live in comfort
in his reign as a Khalifh. (Nawwas-b-Sarnaan-
Muslim/Abu Umamah-Ibne Majah)
Marriage
Many Ahadith specify that after his descension
he will get married and have children and remain
on the earth for a period of 19 years after his
marriage. (Al-Fitan Nuaim bin Hammad).
Death
Prophet Jesus .
See also: The Prophet I'sa (Jesus) .
Mirza Ghulam fulfilled NONE of the above
conditions. His name was Ghulam Ahmad and
not Jesus; he was the son of Chiragh and not
Maryam. The Mahdi and the Dajjal did not
appear before him and thus there was no
question about him killing the Dajjal. He did not
descend from the heavens and nor did any Kaafir
die from his breath. The tribes of Ya'juj and
Ma'juj did not appear in his time nor did the
Jews and Christians believe in him before his
death. He did not elevate Islam but insulted it by
claiming to be the Mahdi, the Messiah, and a
Prophet. He did not kill the pig but enjoyed
eating it. Wars did not cease in his time as the
Muslims were fighting with the British in India.
The receiving of Sadaqa was not discarded nor
was the venom taken out of venomous animals in
his time. He never performed Hajj or Umrah and
he died in a toilet. I am sure by now you have
easily come to the conclusion that Mirza Ghulam
Ahmad was not the Promised Messiah but an
impostor and a liar, who's aim and purpose in life
was to keep the British content.

Ya'juj Ma'juj (Gog and Magog)
The emergence of the mighty tribes of Ya'juj and

are let loose (from their Barrier) and they swiftly

promise of my Lord comes, He shall level it down

Ya'juj Ma'juj and Zulqarnain
Many thousands of years ago the barbarous
tribes of Yajuj and Ma'juj were imprisoned
behind an iron wall built by Zulqarnayn.
Referred to in the Qur'an in Surah Al-Kahf.
Zulqarnayn was a Muslim Arab (fathul bari) who
lived at the time of the Prophet Ibraheem ,
Nimrod & Buktnasr) he was a pious and just
king, provide with all forms of strength through
which he was able to carry his conquests and
missions.
Once he carried a mission in three directions, the
far west, far east, and then in a northerly
direction. Traveling first in the westerly
direction, he conquered the lands he passed
through establishing the laws of Allah therein
until he reached the setting of the sun. There he
met people that didn't believe in Allah. Given a
choice of punishing them for their kufr or being
lenient by inviting them first to Islam; he chose
the latter and addressed them, ''Those evil-doers
who do injustice to themselves by rejecting Allah
will be punished by death in this world and the
hereafter, the fire of hell is their abode. As for
those who accept the invitation and believe in
Allah they will be treated leniently and in the
hereafter Jannah is their place of rest.''
After the journey towards the west he made
preparation for the journey towards the east.
Conquering the lands he passed through,
establishing he laws of Allah therein. He
continued traveling in the easterly direction until
he reached the rising of the sun. In this area of
the east he saw a nation receiving the sunshine
without any obstruction and they were dealt with
like the previous people in the west.
After the journey to the east he started his
northern Journey, he kept on traveling until he
reached the midst of two mountains, it was here
he came across a tribe who complained to him
about the tribes of Ya'juj and Ma'juj. Ya'juj and
Ma'juj inhabited the land behind the mountains,
plundered them, committed bloodshed, and then
ran away. Observing Zulqarnain's power they
asked to set a barrier in return for a wage for
their protection from the disaster and bloodshed,
which they often bore at the hands of Ya'juj
Ma'juj. Refusing to accept any wealth he built an
iron wall with their help which Ya'juj Ma'juj
could not cross or pierce. (Qurtubi/ Ibne-Kathir)

The wall of Zulqarnain
Many different opinions have been expressed as
to the location of the iron wall of Zulqarnain.
Having read many books, the best on the subject
I came across was Sheikh Hifzur-Rahman's
"Stories of the Qur'an" and thus have chosen to
share a brief summary of what he has written.
He writes "The Yajuj Ma'juj caused destruction
and blood- shed in a vast area, and because of
their oppression many barriers and walls were
erected in different times and places by different
kings. Four being the most famous:
1) The Great Wall of China which was built by the
Chinese King Fagfor 3460 years after Prophet
Adam said, "Ya'juj and Ma'juj are the children of
Prophet Adam said, "Allah divided mankind into
ten parts. Nine tenths constitute Ya'juj and
Ma'juj while the remaining one tenth constitutes
the rest of mankind." (Abdullah-b-Amr/Fathul-
Bari).
Hadrat Abu Saeed Khudri narrates that the
Messenger of Allah to pick out the Jahanamis
from his progeny. Adam replied, "Do not grieve
the 999 will be Yajuj Ma'juj while you will be the
one Jannati." (Bukhari/Muslim)
A second myth is that people believe that Ya'juj
and Ma'juj were created from Adam on the basis
of Ka'ab's narration, "They are from the children
of Adam. That is Adam . The Prophet Nuh and
Eve will take the Muslims to Mount Tur for their
protection as nobody will be able to kill the Ya'juj
Ma'juj. Ya'juj and Ma'juj will come forth from
every lofty place causing destruction and
bloodshed wherever they go. Their first batch will
come to lake Tiberias and drink all of its water.
Their last batch will come to it and say, "There
was once water in this lake."
Marching on, carrying out pillage and murder to
their left and right they will come to mount of
Khamr (a mountain in Jerusalem)
and say, "We have killed the inhabitant of the
Earth, let us now kill the inhabitants of heaven."
Thus they will shoot their arrows towards the
sky. Allah will return the arrows covered with
blood and these fools will think they have killed
those in the heaven. Mean while Prophet Jesus
and his companions will pray for their
destruction. Allah, answering their prayer will
send insects upon the necks of Ya'juj Ma'juj and
in the morning they will be found dead like one
dead man. In the narration of Abu Saeed al-
Khudri which can be found in Tadkhira of Imam
Qurtubi, it has been mentioned; the believers not
being able to hear their noise that morning will
say "Will anybody sacrifice his life and see what
the situation is." Volunteering, a believer will
come down the mountain thinking that he will
never return . However to his surprise he will
find that they are all dead and he will shout,
"Good news! Your enemy has died,"
Prophet Jesus and his companions will turn to
Allah and pray. Allah will send birds with necks
like the necks of Bactarian camels which will
carry the corpses and throw them where Allah
wishes. Thereafter, Allah will send rain and the
earth will be cleaned. (Nawwas-b-
Samaan/Muslim)

Landslides
There will be three landslides before Qiyamah
like never seen before. One in the East, one in the
West and one in Arabia. The Earth will swallow
everything above it and as a result, many people
will die. However, everybody will be raised
according to his intentions. This will take place
when evil prevails.
Hudhaifa-b-Usaid al-Ghifari reported: Allah's
Messenger said: "It will not come until you see
ten signs before it, He made a mention of the
Smoke, the Dajjal, the Beast, the Rising of the
Sun from the West, the Descent of Jesus, Son of
Mary saying, "After me there will be a landslide
in the East, a landslide in the West and a
landslide in the Peninsula of Arabia." I asked,
"Oh Messenger of Allah will the Earth give way,
though there are some pious people above it."
The Prophet and as such the famine befell them
to the starvation of the Makkans, who were so
much constrained that they were forced to eat off
corpses, hides and skins of animals.
In short, the people of Makkah began to starve.
As a rule in intense hunger and ceaseless
drought, a kind of smoke is seen in the space
between the heaven and the Earth, and also the
dust, which rises into the sky from the Earth
especially on long rainless days, looks like a
smoke to the naked eyes. That thing is here
described as a smoke. (Bukhari)
Ibne Masood reported, "Five things have passed,
the smoke, the defeat of the Romans, the
splitting of the moon, the defeat of the infidels in
the Battle of Badr and the punishment."
(Bukhari)
Firstly it should be noted that Ibne Kathir writes
that from amongst the Sahaba Ibne Masood is
the only one that holds this view. The majority of
Ulama in the light of the above and many other
Ahadith are of the opinion that the smoke
referred to in the verse is the same which is to
precede Qiyamah. This has also been related as
being the opinion of Ibne Abbas and Hadrat Ali.
(Ibne Kathir)
Ali (RA) said, "The verse of Dukhan has not
taken place" (Ibne Abe Hatim)
Ibne Abbas, Ibne Umar, Hasan, and others said,
''The smoke referred to in the verses is the smoke
before Qiyamah which will enter in the ears of
the Kuffar and the hypocrites and will affect the
Muslims like a cold. The whole world will be like
a house on fire. It has not happened. It is to
happen.'' (Lawami-ul-Anwaar)
Abdullah-b-Abu-Mulaika narrated that I went
one morning to Ibne Abbas. He said, ''I didn't
sleep all night. ''I asked, ''Why?'' He replied,
''They informed me that a star with a tail
appeared. I feared that the smoke may follow and
thus I didn't sleep till it was morning.'' (Tabari /
Ibne Kathir)
It is clear from the above narration, which is
authentic, as Ibne Kathir has mentioned that
Ibne Abbas was of the opinion that the smoke is
from among the awaited signs. (Ibne Kathir)
Secondly Ibne Kathir writes that Ibne Masood
doesn't relate what he has said back to the
Prophet and so the principal of the Hadith is
quite clear, ''That which is related back to the
Prophet said, "(lmaan will be of no benefit) when
the sun rises from the west." (Tabari)
Abu Huraira reported that the Holy Prophet )
observed, "Verily it (the sun) glides till it reaches
its resting place under the throne. Then it falls
prostrate and remains there until it is told, 'Rise
up and go to the place whence you came' and it
goes back."
Then it continues emerging out from its rising
place and then glides till it reaches its place of
rest under the throne where it falls prostrate and
remains in that state until it is told, 'Rise up and
return to the place whence you came.' And it
returns and emerges out of it's rising place and
then it glides (in such a normal way) that the
people do not discern anything (unusual in it) till
it reaches its resting place under the throne.
Then it would be said to it, 'Rise up and emerge
from the place of your setting,' and it will rise
from the place of its setting." The Messenger of
Allah say, "Verily a night will come upon the
people which is equivalent of three of your
nights. When it comes those that engage
themselves in worship during the night will
recognize it. One of them will stand in prayer,
read his Hizb (The normal amount he has made
the habit of reading) and then go to sleep.
Thereafter he will wake up (for the second time)
read his Hizb in prayer and go to sleep. While
this is the situation the people will begin to
shout, scream and call one another. They will say,
"What's this?" With fear they will run to the
mosque. To their surprise they will see that the
sun has risen from the west. When it reaches the
middle of the sky it will return and set in the
west." He said . But when Allah manifests such
startling and visible signs which herald the
approach of the last hour and by which the veil of
the unseen is rent asunder, then the belief
becomes meaningless. The rising of the sun from
the west will be of great disturbance to nature
and will shake the mind of every man and
awaken him to see for himself the great power of
Allah. At this time the belief of the unseen will
lose its importance.

Door of Repentance Closed
Once the sun has risen from the west the door of
repentance will be closed and will remain closed
until the Day of Judgment. If any infidel
embraces Islam or any Muslim repents and seeks
forgiveness for his sins any time after the rising
of the sun from the west till the Day of Judgment,
it will not be accepted.
The Messenger of Allah said, "Allah has built a
door of repentance in the west the breadth of
which is seventy years and it will not close as
long as the sun does not rise from the west."
(Safwan-b-Assal / Tirmidhi)
The above Ahadith have clearly specified that the
extreme limit of the acceptance of repentance is
till the sun rises from the west. Once it has risen
it will not be accepted.
Ibne Hajar has mentioned many Ahadith which
prove that the door of repentance will remain
closed till the Day of Judgment and thereafter
writes, ''These narration's give strength to one
another, agreeing completely in that when the
sun rises from the west the door of repentance
will be closed and will not be opened thereafter.
And this is not specific with that day but will
prolong till the Day of Judgment.'' (Fathul- Bari)
Back to content
The Beast
The Beast is also a major sign of Qiyamah. Allah
says in the Qur'an, "And when the word is
fulfilled concerning them. We shall bring forth a
Beast of the Earth to speak unto them because
mankind had no faith in our revelation." (Surah
An-Naml)
Abdullah-b-Umar said, "I memorized a Hadith
from the Messenger of Allah saying, 'The first of
the signs that will come is the rising of the sun
from the place of its setting and the emergence of
the Beast upon the people. Whichever of these
two occurs before the other then the other is
right behind it." (Muslim)
Commentating on the above verse Ibne Kathir
has said that the beast will appear very near the
end of time. When disintegration, corruption,
kufr and evil prevail, commands of Allah are
ignored, the Deen changed and made a mockery
of, it is then Allah will take out the Beast from the
earth. (Ibne Kathir)
Imam Hakim in the light of the above Hadith has
said that the rising of the sun from the west will
take place before the emergence of the Beast. The
Beast will appear on the same day the sun has
risen from the west or very soon thereafter. Ibne
Hajar after quoting Imam Hakim mentions, "The
wisdom in the Beast appearing after the sun has
risen from the west is that the door of repentance
will close at the time the sun rises from the west.
Thus the Beast will emerge to distinguish the
believers from the non-believers completing the
aim of closing the door of repentance." (Fathul-
Bari)
Task
The task of the Beast will be to distinguish the
believers from the non-believers, with Prophet
Moosa's it will seal the nose of every non-
believer where by his whole face will become
black. Thus there will be complete distinction
between the Muslim and non-Muslirn, so that if
many parties sit at a dinner table, the Muslim
and non-Muslirn will be distinguished. (Abu
Huraira-Musnad Ahmad/Tirmidhi)
The Beast will also talk to people. It will say,
"Mankind had no faith in our revelations." (Ibne
Kathir)
Place of emergence
Many opinions have been expressed as regards to
the place the Beast will come out from. A few are
listed:
1) It will come out from Al-Masjid Al-Haraam in
Makkah. This opinion is based on the hadith
reported by Tabrani on the authority of
Hudhaifa-b-Usaid.
2) It will come out three times, from some desert
and then go back into hiding, then from some
village and finally from Al-Masjid Al-Haraam.
There are many other opinions most of them
report that it will come out from the Haram of
Makkah. (See Tadkirah and Al-Isha'ah)

Nature of the Beast
Many different opinions have been expressed as
to the nature of the Beast and the type of animal
it is. A few are shared and explained.
1) Some Ulama are of the opinion that the Beast
to come before the end of time is the very animal
which has been mentioned in the Hadith of
Fatimah-b-Qais. Known as the Jassasa (spy) seen
by Tamim Dari and his companions from the
tribes of Lakhm and Juzaam on the same Island
as the Dajjal. This is related of being the opinion
of the Sahabi Abdullah-b-Amr-b-al-Aas.
(Nawawee's commentary on Muslim)
Fatimah-bin-Qais reported, "I heard the
proclaimer of the Messenger of Allah . When he
finished his prayer, he sat upon the pulpit
smiling and said, 'Let every man remain in his
seat.' Then he said, 'Do you know why I have
called you together?' They replied, 'Allah and his
Messenger know best.' He said, 'By Allah, I have
not called you together for hope or for fear, but I
have called you together because Tamim Dari a
Christian came and embraced Islam. He narrated
a story to me which agreed with the account I
have given to you about the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).
He informed me that he had embarked upon a
sea-boat with thirty men of Lakhm and Jozam.
Then the sea waves played with them for a month
and threw them onto an island when the sun was
about to set. They sat in a small side boat and
entered the Island. A beast with very coarse hair
met them. They could not tell its front from its
back due to its excessive hair. They asked, 'Woe
to thee! Who art thou?" It replied, 'I am a spy. Go
to the man in the monastery, as he is eager to
have your information.' He said, 'When it named
a man for us, we fled away from it lest it might be
the devil.' We hurriedly went on till we entered
the monastery and found a big-bodied man
whom we did never see before. He was firmly
tied up, his hands tied to his neck, the place
between his knees, and joints tied up with iron
chains." (Muslim)
Camel
2) Some scholars are of the opinion that it is the
young of the she camel of the Prophet Salih . This
is the most correct view and opinion. Allah
knows best."
Back to content
Opinion Explained
The people of Thamud were Arabs who lived a
couple of hundred years after the Prophet Noah
conveyed the message of Allah day and night and
called them to the worship of Allah with wisdom
and kind-heartedness but the people of Thamud
decided to remain blind. Finally, they like the
communities before them asked to see a miracle.
They said, ' O Salih take out a ten month
pregnant she-camel from a mountain which then
gives birth to a young that has the same body and
stature as the mother.' Having seen the miracle
they refused to believe. The she-camel was a sign
of Allah, very large and unusual in form and the
people were warned that they would be destroyed
if they treated it with evil. All the other animals
were afraid of Prophet Salih's camel and would
run away whenever she and its young came to
drink water. Thus bounds were arranged.
However, after a very short period they broke the
agreement and decided to kill the camel of Allah.
A group hid waiting for the camel on its return
from the well with its child. Shooting an arrow
they injured it and finally killed it paving the way
for the destruction of the entire community. On
seeing its mother in trouble the child fled to the
mountains and disappeared. This young is
referred to in the second opinion.
Extraordinary Animal
3) Some are of the opinion that the Beast to come
is an animal that has features of many different
animals. The same is reported from Abu Zubair.
Describing the Beast he has reported that, "Its
head is like that of a bull, eyes like that of a pig,
ears like that of an elephant, horns like that of a
stag, neck like that of an ostrich, chest like a lion,
color like that of a tiger, flanks like that of a cat,
tail like that of a ram, feet and legs like that of a
camel and a distance of 12 cubits between every
two joints." (Tadhkirah)

Snake
Some scholars are of the opinion it is the Snake
which guarded the Holy Ka'bah. Imam Al-
Qurtubi relates this as being the opinion of Ibne
Abbas. (Al-Qurtubi)
Obeying Allah's command the Prophet Ibraheem
built the Holy Ka'bah. He dug a well inside the
Holy Ka'bah which was to the right of who
entered it and acted as a safe to all the gifts that
were presented to the Ka'bah which were kept
inside it. At the time of Jurhum the gold and
silver were stolen many times from the Kabah
thus the tribe of Jurhum decided to choose a man
amongst them to keep guard. Unfortunately, one
day the guard himself decided to steal the gifts of
the Kabah. Taking the opportunity as it came he
climbed down the well and began to gather what
he could in a piece of cloth. While he was busy
Allah sent a stone on him, which closed the well
and thus he was unable to escape. From that day
Allah sent a snake to guard the Ka'bah. The snake
lived in the well guarding the gifts of the Ka'bah
for over 500 years. Exposed to the wearing
factors of nature the walls of the Ka'bah at the
time of Quraish (slightly before the time Prophet
and prayed, "Oh Allah if you are happy in its
rebuilding then make it possible and take care of
this snake." Allah sent an eagle which took the
snake towards Ajyaad. This snake is referred to
in the forth opinion. (Tarikh-Makka)
Many other opinions have been expressed as
regards to the nature of the Beast. However,
finding myself inclined towards Abu Amr
Uthman Ibne Sa'd al-Mukri ad-Dani's opinion I
conclude with his words, "There are many
narrations in regards to the physical description,
length, and nature of the Beast but most of these
are Mawqoof on the Sahaba or those after them.
As for those that are Marfoo only a few are sound
thus we cannot assert anything in regard of its
description and nature except that which is
proven from the authentic Marfoo narration's
and that it is a huge creature that will come out
from the Earth, a beast other than man, nobody
will be able to escape it. It will stamp the Muslim
by writing 'believer' between his eyes, and stamp
the non-Muslim by writing Kafir between his
eyes." (As-Sunan Al-Waridah Fil-Fitan)
Back to content
The Fire
The last major sign to appear before the Day of
Judgment is the fire which will come out from
the Yemen and gather the people in the place of
their assembly.
In the Hadith of Hudaifa-b-Usaid regarding the
Major signs the Prophet said, "The people will be
gathered in three ways:
1.The first way will be of those who will wish or
have a hope (for paradise) and will have a fear (of
punishment).
2.The second batch will be those who will gather
riding, two on a camel or three on a camel or ten
on a camel.
3.The third batch will be the rest of the people
who will be urged to gather by the fire which will
accompany them at the time of their afternoon
nap and stay with them where they will spend the
night, and will be with them in the morning
wherever they may be then, and will be with
them in the afternoon wherever they may be
then. (Bukhari)
Chapter Six- Wisdom ( O- Sophia)

When we think of the word wisdom many ideas


and people pop into our minds. Wisdom means:
accumulated philosophic or scientific learning:
knowledge b: ability to discern inner
qualities and relationships: insight c: good sense:
judgment. Various historical figures come into
mind when contemplating this word such as:
King Solomon, Confucius, Lao Zi, Buddha, Jesus
and Muhammad respectably. There is a famous
saying that says," the beginning of wisdom is the
fear of GOD."
In the Quran we read that the most noble in the
sight of GOD is the one that fears him the most.
Two unique occurrences appear in the
Quran that tell us of wise men in Chapter The
Cave. A Jewish tradition narrates to us a story
about a cave and hidden knowledge.
Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai was a student of Rabbi
Akiva, who was the spiritual leader of the Bar
Kochba Revolt against Rome in 135 CE, which
began in glory and ended in tragedy.
His teacher was one of the four great Sages who
entered the “Pardes,” the “Orchard” (an
intellectual pursuit of esoteric knowledge) who
probed the depths of Kabala, and came out
mentally and spiritually whole. Clearly, Rabbi
Akiva was the recipient of a living tradition which
he passed on orally to his beloved student, Rabbi
Shimon.
As a student of the spiritual leader of the revolt,
bar Yochai was pursued relentlessly by the
Romans. He and his son, Rabbi Elazar ben
Shimon, took refuge in a cave, where they
remained for thirteen years.
In the Cave During those years, Rabbi Shimon
studied Torah with his son, the Revealed Torah
and the Hidden, or Secret, Torah, the “Torat
HaSod,” also known as “Kabala,” and translated,
or mistranslated as “Jewish Mysticism.” Rabbi
Shimon wrote down the latter material, for the
first time, in a book called the “Zohar,” meaning
“Splendor” or “Radiance.” The first time Rabbi
Shimon came out of the cave, he was completely
“out of tune” with the people of his generation.
He observed Jews farming the land, and engaged
in other normal pursuits, and made known his
disapproval, “How can people engage themselves
in matters of this world and neglect matters of
the next world?” Whereupon a Heavenly Voice
was heard, which said “Bar Yochai, go back to the
cave! You are no longer fit for the company of
other human beings.”
Rabbi Shimon went back to the cave, reoriented
his perspective to some extent, and emerged
again. This time, he was able to interact with the
people of his generation, and become a great
teacher of Torah, the Revealed and the Hidden.
The Jewish rabbis and thinkers in the time of the
Prophet Muhammad used to quiz him on the
story of the cave.
The chapter was revealed to the Prophet detailing
the story and also giving us information on two
other figures of great wisdom. One tells of the
story of Moses and his interaction with a man
named Khidr, which translates into English as
"Green".
This man was given wisdom that surpassed that
of Moses and the story goes on to tell us of there
interaction. Most of us are familiar with star
wars and the main character of wisdom being
Yoda the great Jedi Knight. The green man has a
lot of history and has been called in Masonic
circles Rex Mundi, or "King of the World".
There is another story of Dhul Kifl meaning," one
of double portion." This name has most
commonly been understood as the Prophet
Ezekiel, others believe if no one other than
Buddha himself who originally taught people to
worship one GOD. Kifl being an Arabicized
version of Kapilavastu the place where Buddha
appeared.
I have reason to believe it was Ezekiel because
the word Kifl has no semblance to Kapilavastu in
my understanding. This is some what
a stretch of the imagination, but could be
possible, so we wont rule it out whole heartedly.
In the Quran GOD reveals to the Prophet
Muhammad, "17:39 This is (part) of that wisdom
wherewith thy Lord hath inspired thee
(O Muhammad). And set not up with Allah any
other god, lest thou be cast into hell, reproved,
abandoned."
Another man in the Quran appears as the Wise
Luqman. The quran tells us," 31:12 And verily We
gave luqman wisdom, saying: Give thanks
unto Allah; and whosoever giveth thanks, he
giveth thanks for (the good of) his soul. And
whosoever refuseth--Lo! Allah is Absolute,
Owner of Praise.
31:13 And (remember) when luqman said unto
his son, when he was exhorting him: O my dear
son! Ascribe no partners unto Allah. Lo! to
ascribe partners (unto Him) is a tremendous
wrong-- In another tradition luqman is asked,
"What has brought you to what we see?" meaning
his high rank. Luqman said, "Truthful speech,
fulfilling the trust, and leaving what does not
concern me." Many times in movies and books
wise men are portrayed as men of magic and
mystic, probably due to the story of the Prophet
Solomon and the supernatural work the Djin
(Invisible beings made from fire)
did for him in attaining knowledge, wealth, and
building his temple. We read in the
Quran,"2:102 And follow that which the devils
falsely related against the kingdom of Solomon.
Solomon disbelieved not; but the devils
disbelieved, teaching mankind magic and that
which was revealed to the two angels
in Babel, Harut and Marut. Nor did they (the
two angels) teach it to anyone till they had said:
We are only a temptation, therefore
disbelieve not (in the guidance of Allah). And
from these two (angels) people learn that by
which they cause division between man and wife;
but they injure thereby no one save by Allah's
leave. And they learn that which harmeth them
and profited them not. And surely they do know
that he who trafficked therein will have no
(happy) portion in the Hereafter; and surely evil
is the price for which they sell their souls, if they
but knew."
34:12 "And unto Solomon (We gave) the wind,
whereof the morning course was a month's
journey and the evening course a month's
journey, and We caused the fount of copper to
gush forth for him, and (We gave him) certain of
the jinn who worked before him by permission of
his Lord. And such of them as deviated from Our
command, them We caused to taste the
punishment of flaming fire. "
27:17 "And there were gathered together unto
Solomon his armies of the jinn and humankind,
and of the birds, and they were set in battle
order;" The jinn or djin (genie's or demons) that
worked for him were commanded by GOD to be
put under Solomon's command. GOD gave
Solomon the wisdom to conjure them and deal
with them in specific matters that was exclusive
to him alone. 2:102" And follow that which the
devils falsely related against the kingdom of
Solomon. Solomon disbelieved not; but the devils
disbelieved, teaching mankind magic and that
which was revealed to the two angels in Babel,
Harut and Marut. Nor did they (the two angels)
teach it to anyone till they had said: We are only
a temptation, therefore disbelieve not (in the
guidance of Allah). And from these two (angels)
people learn that by which they cause division
between man and wife; but they injure thereby
no one save by Allah's leave. And they learn that
which harmeth them and profited them not. And
surely they do know that he who trafficked
therein will have no (happy) portion in the
Hereafter; and surely evil is the price, for which
they sell their souls, if they but knew. " Thus a
key word to understanding meaning is "Insight".
GOD grants wisdom according to his great
wisdom and mercy. There exist many aspects of
wisdom that not only pertains to the spiritual
world but also the mundane. The Chinese have
attained great insights into physical cultivation of
the body and self mastery. The knowledge of the
"Self" or Oneself is tantamount if one wishes to
ascend into the plateaus of wisdom. Other words
such as "Sophia" are used to express the ideas of
wisdom in its feminine sense. In Islam half a
mans religion or believe comes from his
marriage or wife. In this we can see the great
importance of a man needing a woman to attain
heightened wisdom. Many theories have been
put into play these days concerning the
importance of sex in the attainment of
enlightenment. Doaist and Indian Yogi's teach of
the Kundalini method of moving energy up the
33 vertebrae of the spinal column
to the pineal gland. The pineal gland has been
classified as the," seat of the soul" by Descartes.
This can be achieved by simply moving the
body's energy/spirit with the mind from the
groin region up the spinal cord into the brain. It
has been well documented that this causes exotic
sensations and heightened awareness to name a
few effects of this meditation. During
intercourse this sensation is multiplied greatly,
and some esoterics claim that by moving the
orgasmic energy up into the brain causes
increased enjoyment and enlightenment.
The Chinese have done much research into the
bodies energy fields and how they can be
manipulated via acupressure and
acupuncture. Another popular method is called
moxibustion. This is when they use the suction
cups to vacuum the skin
in a certain area there in manipulating blood and
energy flow to specific regions of the body. The
prophet Muhammad attested
to the authenticity of this method of healing in
many hadiths,"sayings" recorded by his wives
and companions. When we talk about effective
medicines we have to think no further than the
aloe plants. This plant was thought to be a
miracle plant even in the ancient days. Science
has now come to discover that the
polysaccharides and acemannan present in the
plant are effective in treating cancers. How this
works few know, but many have speculated on
increased cell communication which enables
healthy cells to repair, and destroy cancer cells.
The Prophet Muhammad mentioned Aloe as a
curative, as well as black cumin, and milk and
honey to name a few. The Quran mentions
Olives, Dates, Onions, Honey, Milk, Bananas,
and Figs to name a few.
We read: "And your Lord taught the bee to build
it's hives in the hills, on trees and in what men
build.
Then to eat of all the fruits, and walk in the path
of it's Lord submissively. From within their
bodies issues a drink of varying colors,
in which there is healing for men. Most surely
there is a sign in this for those who reflect."
Qur'an 16:68,69
Many believe in the power of macrobiotics and
using juice machines to get fresh fruits and
vegetables in their diet.
Rex Mundi or the Green man has been affiliated
with the idea of Vegetation and Wisdom. There
exists a Masonic order
that is dedicated to Fruits and Vegetables in
England called the "Gardeners." Some people
have gone so far as to become vegans and to stop
eating meat altogether. New research has come
out showing that different blood
type groups positively respond to different kinds
of foods. "O" blood groups blood reacts
positively with Meats, and not so good with
Wheat unless its spelted or Ezekiel. "A" group's
tent to do better with vegetables and whole
wheat's. All groups have a sufficient amount of
fruits, vegetables and meats that they can eat
with a positive blood reaction.
A book has been written called, "Eat right for
your blood type." I would suggest this to anyone
interested in loosing weight and feeling good. On
the topic of exercise and fitness, these days there
exist a million different programs and routines to
help get you toned and in shape. From my
research and experience I have found that the
best
way to develop lean dense muscles is doing
simple static exercises and calisthenics. People
that are overweight can benefit from static and
isometric resistance exercises that require no
weights. This builds dense muscles that help
burn fat fast. Walking fast is key for people that
cant run on a tread meal to help preserve there
hips and knees.
I will leave you with a final thought on Self
Knowledge and the Subconscious. I have been
doing a lot of reading on books dealing with this
matters and it seems that I always here this
phrase that pops up, "Know Thyself"
I wish to reinvigorate this idea with a new saying
that goes like this, " Create Thyself." Simply
knowing yourself or being aware who you are is
of no benefit if your life is a mess. People sit
around all day and watch TV, listen to mind
bending music, abuse drugs and alcohol, and put
so much negativity into their minds, and then
they wonder
why they are always down and out. Eradicating
negative things in your life and becoming more in
tune with what you want in life and building on
those beliefs is rudimentary. We have heard of
the many methods of creating thyself, such as:
hypnosis, affirmation speaking, meditation and
squaring the self etc. These methods are
effective to an extent, but we must not count out
the effect of the Memory on our souls and spirits.
Many people begin to feel lost in their lives and
wonder to themselves, who am I? I can assure
you that you are not alone and
people seem to find themselves through
associations in their life and inner sanctum.
Since GOD has created us as humans and put his
light in us, it is common sense to understand that
we will not find the ultimate security, and correct
sense of self until we realize that true security
comes from closeness to our Creator.
This is reflected in the title of the one religion of
GOD "ISLAM". This word reflects submission,
peace, and security toward our creator. The Salat
or "prayer" is the method in which we may attain
this. The Quran or "recital" is our affirmation of
truth that is recited in our prayers to remind us
on a continual basis, since our minds are so easy
to forget. I implore you to consider the religion of
all the Prophets of GOD from Adam to
Muhammad. This path or religion is no other
than submitting to the will of GODS message. All
the prophets brought an identical
message of worshiping GOD, asking him for
guidance and forgiveness, and following his
divine wisdom that has been passed on since the
beginning of time. May GOD guide us all,
AMEN

"On the Day when every soul will find itself


confronted with all that it hath done of good and
all that it hath done of evil (every soul) will long

between it and that (evil). Allah biddeth you
