    Before the Last Day

    Report bad ads?

    In my studies I have learned that the Last Day is a very, very important event in Islam because that is the day where the believers go to heaven and the wrongdoers go to hell. But, I have read conflicting accounts as to what is supposed to happen in the days and years that lead up to the Last Day. For example, when Jesus will return or how humanity will end before being ressurected. Can someone please straighten me out?

    What are the conflicting events?

    There are many events that will occur before the last day, and then of course the day of judgement itself is another topic. Anyhow this book might help get you started: PDF

    Re: Before the Last Day

    Here's a chronological account from the great Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi Rahimullah from his book Heavenly Ornaments:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The Christians will collect armies from all corners to resist the Muslims. The Muslims will also make preparations. The Muslim army shall have eighty banners and under each banner there will be twelve thousand soldiers. Imam Mehdi will march from Mecca to Medina and after visitng the tomb of the Holy Prophet [sm] , will proceed towards damascus in syria. the christian army will also advance to confront Him. The Army of Imam Mehdi will split into three groups - one will desert, the second will be killed in the battle and ultimately the third will be victorious by the grace of Allah.

    the Imam will establish His rule over the country. then he will advance towards constantinople, on reaching the river rome, He will depute seventy thousand soldiers from the clan of Abu Ishaq to attack the city. on reaching the parapats of the city the soldiers will cry out "Allahu-Akbar" and by its blessings the walls of the city will fall down and they will enter the city. killing the infidels, they will conquer the city. They will rule with justice and fairness and will restore order. all this will be done within six or seven years after the pledges taken by Imam Mehdi.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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