Explanations of hadiths regarding the End Times by Mr. Adnan Oktar
Our Prophet (saas) says; "A star that lights up the Moon will be born from the East." How can a star light up the moon? This means it will be a very bright and shiny star, or else a star cannot light up the Moon. This is something said to make it more understandable. It means to say that the star is so bright that it almost lights up the Moon. What was the basic characteristic of the comet Lulin? It is the brightest one of the comets that has ever come so far; it is very bright and radiant. "That star will be bent after it is born," he says. None of the stars ever bend, all comets go straight forward. They have a tail and they go straight forward. "So that both tails of the comet come closer." It takes the form of the crescent. What is the characteristic of the comet Lulin? It has two tails and it is in the shape of a crescent. It is almost like a circle; that is what the comet Lulin looks like. Look at how perfectly our Prophet (saas) explained the brightness of the star.
The hadiths also state that there will be lots of sink holes in the End Times. Yesterday I was looking at the television, and I saw that a whole neighborhood, all the houses were all sinking in an instant. In his hadiths, our Prophet (saas) says; "There will be an increase in the number of sink holes." That is also a portent of the appearance of Mahdi (pbuh).
Our Prophet (saas) says ; "Wait until an individual who will be called the Mahdi (pbuh) appears from my Ahl Al-Bayt. If you live to see him, abide by him and be one of those who attain guidance." That means Mahdi (pbuh) is a person who will be instrumental in people's attaining guidance. What will he do then? How will a person attain guidance? With the facts leading to faith, with miracles of the Qur'an. That means Mahdi (pbuh) will not be talking about the Islamic Laws. Maybe he also talks about the Islamic Laws as well, but how can one lead to guidance? It is by making one believe in God: So that means Mahdi (pbuh) will know the artistry of making people believe in God, he will know the art of making people love God. How is this done? He will be talking about the miracles of the Qur'an, he will be talking about the facts leading to faith, about the miracles of our Prophet (saas), about the wonders behind the matter and thus be instrumental in people's attaining faith. And the name Mahdi (pbuh) comes from this, Mahdi (pbuh) means the one who is instrumental in people's attaining faith.
Our Prophet (saas) says; "His [Hazrat Mahdi's (pbuh)] caliphate will be valid on humans and djinn." That means he will be the caliph of both djinn and humans, just like the Prophet Solomon (pbuh).
As you know, the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) imprisoned thousands of djinn inside his ring. He had a red, ruby ring, a very fine beautiful ring on his finger and the Prophet Solomon's sign was embedded on that ring, that Star of David. And there were thousands of djinn inside that ring; he makes them do whatever he likes. When they were done with their duties, the djinn used to get inside that ring and stay there, they were imprisoned there. In the verse, God says that they were chained to each other. He even had irreligious djinn under his command. The verse calls them "satans" and those are irreligious djinn. Through the djinn, he gives lightness to the matter. For instance let us assume that there is a stone weighing three tons or a giant piece of stone weighing two thousand tons. We do not know what kind of science this is, that is the Wisdom of God, we do not know how, but they make them weigh as if they are two hundred kilograms, their whole weight is lifted and that giant piece of stone becomes as light as a bird and people can easily lift them and carry them as if they are made of cardboard. When they leave it on the ground, the stone compacts the soil because of their weight. As the Wisdom of God, they possess information which makes them lose the power of gravity on them. For instance, they possess a knowledge which allows them to cut stones like a blade. Those stones are there in Israel now. People say, "This cannot be done with any tool." It is not possible to carry it. The stones of the foundation of the Prayer House of Prophet Solomon (pbuh) were brought from another place, they were brought there from 50-100 km away, these stones do not belong to that location and it is not possible to carry them. They are meters long, they have no end to it. They are meters long, they have no end. And the whole knowledge lies in that red ruby ring, that science is not known; I mean that is a science God conceals and may be it is knowledge inside the hidden knowledge.
I am saying that the ruby ring that belongs to the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) will be found; that is one. The ark of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) -the Holy Ark- the ark that the Prophet Moses (pbuh) was put in, the wooden ark that he was placed in when he was a baby- as you know, his mother placed him in an ark and left him on the river and that ark was covered with gold and became the holy ark of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). That Holy Ark will be found. There will be Manna in a bottle in that ark. I am saying this now because when it is found you will all be amazed, so you cannot say you haven't said that to us, you said it later on. Look, I am saying this ten years before it happens; you will see this. Manna, some belongings of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), a piece of his staff and some pieces of the broken tablets, the pieces of the tablets the Ten Commandments were engraved on and many other holy relics will be inside that ark, and that ark will be found. And all the Jews who see this will instantly come to believe him.
