|‘When you were told, "Allah’s promise is true and so is the Hour, of which there is no doubt," you said, "We have no idea what the Hour is. We have only been conjecturing. We are by no means certain."’ The evil deeds they did will appear before them and the things they mocked at will engulf them. (Surat al-Jathiyya, 32-33)|
In our day many of the people with Darwinist way of thinking approach the subject of Mahdism with a derisive atittude. Despite the fact that hundreds of signs in the hadith regarding the End Times — the time in which we currently live—and the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) have come true, these people assess these issues with a doubtful and derisive outlook. However in many of our Prophet’s (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) hadith, the physical and spiritual features of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) along with the natural, historical and political events of his time are explained at length. All these happen in our time successively.
At the root of this derisive approach of some people who have almost taken Darwinism as a deity for themselves lies their defeat about Darwinism. Such people who foolishly deride the existence of Allah, Creation and Mahdism, have come to a point of not being able to advocate Darwinism any longer, through the light of Mahdism. Rather, because of advocating a theory totally stripped of science and rationalism for so long, they have found themselves in a deplorable and ridiculous state. However, these people who try to attack Mahdism with the pain of being defeated by Darwinism can never stop the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) no matter what they do: The shield and shadow of Mahdism will also enclose them, as is the case with other people.
Whether people accept or not, there is one obvious fact: This is the century when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will come, the morality of Islam will dominate all over the world, just as our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) gave the good news 1400 years ago. This is the time of the Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the End Times when the fallacy of Darwinism will be history.
