All these (portents of the End Times) WILL BE REALIZED IN A PERIOD WHEN COUNTRIES WILL CHANGE, HUMAN BEINGS WILL FALL INTO A DECLINE AND ABANDON ALL HOPE FOR THE COMING OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS). Then THE QAIM (HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)) who is from by my descent, WILL EMERGE WITH A NATION AND ALLAH WILL MAKE THE TRUTH PREVAIL THROUGH THIS NATION AND CRUSH THE SUPERSTITIOUS BY SWORDS OF KNOWLEDGE… Oh people, joy with the coming of the Mahdi (as). Because the word of Allah is true, it does not come to anything. His Command is not averted. He does everything with wisdom and He knows everything. ALLAH’S CONQUER IS CLOSE. (Yanabee’ al-Mawadda, p. 440)
Our Prophet (saas) told in his hadiths for the End Times about some events and developments that will happen before the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). These hadiths comprise very important portents in order to understand that we are living in the End Times. In this hadith, our Prophet (saas) described a period when people will abandon all hope for the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and that some so-called religious scholars will make comments like, “Hazrat Mahdi (as) is acollective personality, he has already come and gone, don’t wait for the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as), Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not come in this century, he will come centuries later so the morality of Islam will not prevail in this century...” He told about the crises that the whole world will go through and informed that political regimes in some countries will change. So indeed in this period that we live in, government systems of a great many countries ruled by the communist regime have changed and the world has experienced grand economic crises consecutively. And now the world is going through a big economic crisis, which seriously penetrated the whole world since the year 2007 and which will continue for 7 years as forecasted by the most reputable economic institutions. Besides, epidemics that take hold of the world and cultural breakdowns are experienced one after the other. These portents being realized one after the other like the broken off beads of a necklace indicate that Hazrat Mahdi (as) has come and begun his work. (Allah knows the truth.) As it is also seen in other hadiths, the nation from which Hazrat Mahdi (as) will arise is the Turkish nation. Allah will make His religion prevail over all other religions through wisdom, knowledge and science with the hand of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the courageous Turkish nation. In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), insha’Allah, The Turkish-Islamic Union will be established under the leadership of Turkey.
