Everything in this universe is mortal except Allah. Allah has created this universe from a single point and unfolded it, which is called the Big Bang. The universe is still continuing to expand. But the time will come when this universe will spread to infinity and again converge to a single point, called the Big Crunch.
“And the Day when We shall roll up the heaven like a scroll rolled up for books. As We began the first creation, we shall repeat it. (It is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, we shall do it” (21: 104)
In the 21st century, every country is struggling to overcome another. Superpower countries are more struggling to lead the world under their economic platforms. Every country is in the race for new technologies. Every country struggling to conquer other countries with its nuclear weapons and to make new warheads using advanced technologies. The worlds are divided into groups. Superpower countries are building blocks against each other. Proxy wars and terrorism are the main reason for bringing countries close to the brink of the Third World War.
Once, a question was asked from Einstein about the 3rd world war, he said:
“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
Those lines illustrate how huge the destruction the planet will face in the Third World War. He believed that the weapons that would be used in the Third World War would be so devastating that all the technology in the world will be finished, all be destroyed, and there will be no further technology left.
So, one day, the world will be over. All major religions are firmly convinced that the world will reach its end time. In Christianity, the word “Armageddon” is used in the Book of Revelation of the Bible, which means the final battle. Christian believe that there will be a war between evil and truth. Muslims also have the same belief that the time will come for a final battle and fight between evil and truth and that the believers of the truth will be the victors. Hinduism also put their verse of the return of Vishnu in that battle to fight evil and bring people to justice. Jews are waiting for their Prophet (Dajjal), from that they hope to bring their sovereignty in the worlds again.
In Christianity, it is clearly mentioned that Jesus will come and will fight against Antichrist. “Armageddon” word, for the final battle, originated from the name of “Megiddo”, which is the location in present Israel. The site is known as the bloodshed place where in the past, many times blood shed like water. Most of Christian are firmly believe that Jesus will come and save the true believers and will fight against evils and anti-Christians.
In Islam, there are many Hadith and prophecies of scholars about the final battle, which is called Al Malhama TUL KUBRA. Al MAhhama means” disaster, catastrophe or bloodshed.” Before that big war, there will be many civil wars among the Muslims and the Muslim to non-Muslims. Many Ahadees are about the major civil conflicts among the Muslims before that final battle in Harmajddon.
Another context of Hadith is that Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) predicted that a time will come when wealth will be a 1st priority of the Ummah. If someone given 100 Dinar, he even will be not happy. Then another prediction about the civil wars among the Muslims is that a time will come when the Ummah will be divided into the 3 army groups, one in Sham, one in Iraq and one in Yemen. One of the Companions of Hazrat Muhammad(SAWW) asked that Ya Rasulullah(SAWW), to whom army I should join, the Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) said: you should join the army that will in the Sham as it will be very close to Islam and the Qayyarah will be from that place. These will be the civil war among the Muslims, and none of them will be victorious. Only the Ummah will become so weak that it could not defend them from the anti-Muslim Armies.
The Mahdi will come when the Ummah will be dividing in groups and there will be a massive civil war among the Muslims. The Mahdi will unify the Ummah. The Ummah will choose the Mahdi of their leader.
“Allah will bring out from concealment Mahdi from my Family and Progeny before the Day of Judgment, even if only one day were to remain in the life of the world, and he will spread on this earth justice, and equity and eradicate tyranny and oppression” (abu dawud, 4283)
(Armies carrying) black flags will come from Khorasan. No power will be able to stop them, and they will finally reach Eelya (Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags”. (Tirmizi)
The Prophet (SAWW) said:
“The Hour will not begin until Dajjalun and liars have been appeared, nearly thirty, each of them claiming that he is Allahs Messenger”. (Sahih Muslim, 7342)
The Hadith mentioned make it clear that there will be 30 dajjals before the arrival of the great Dajjal. Abdella Yimam Ali (Woldia University, Ethiopia) says that this Hadith indicates that there will be 30 leaders involved in changing the status of Madinah (Islamic Caliphate) and Jerusalem (Israeli State). Abdella Yimam Ali further says in his article, that according to the prophecies of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW), 30 leaders are British and United States leaders who have played an important role in establishing the State of Israel and ending the Islamic Caliphate (Ottoman Empire). Some of these leaders mentioned, are David Lloyd, Truman, and now Trump, who struggled to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Jews are preparing themselves for the coming great Dajjal, so all the indications show that the arrival of Dajjal is not far away.
If we now compile all the Hadith and the situations of Muslim Ummah today, it shows that the final battle (Armageddon) is not far away. The Muslim Ummah is not now united. Each country focuses on its own personal interests. Each country blames the other for proxy wars and terrorist attacks that are taking place every day in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as in other Islamic states. But no country wants to realize what the inside story is. Now one is trying to understand what the superpowers are doing to them.
All the proxy wars that are in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and other Islamic states are undoubtedly from the Superpowers. They just creating the scenario of the final battle of Armageddon. Christ and Jews have a firm belief in the last fight (3rd world war). Richard Ames in “Tomorrows World” indicates the prophecies of the Armageddon in Christianity. He mentions that Christ will fight against anti-Christ. If we observe, who are the Anti-Christ…? obviously, Muslims, Hinduism, Jews, all the other religions are anti-Christ. So, there is no doubt the war will not be fought.
It is clear from the above that all religions are at the same point that war will be between evil and truth. Every religion is calling itself on the right path. There is no doubt, therefore, that the third war will not take place. It will surely be fought, and the whole world will be part of it. The earth in Harmagidon has to face a massive catastrophe in Israel.
It’s time for Ummah to wake up and realize what’s going on with them. It’s a need for Ummah to set aside personal interests and give importance to religious affairs. May Allah protect the Ummah and make us to judge the path of evil and righteousness.
