Darwin appeared as declaring science to be his pseudo-idol and his dictatorship spread all over the world.
As a result of Darwinism being spread by various forces, its being brought to dominate the world and becoming "unquestionable" under the influence of the Darwinist dictatorship have meant that people have surrendered to this great ideology of the antichrist. It is now impossible for any professor, any statesman, a teacher, a student or a writer to say a word against Darwinism. Such people will immediately be fired, excluded from their social circles and lose their careers. Because of this domination on the part of the Darwinist dictatorship and this despotic and ruthless pressure, everyone has now submitted to Darwinism. Since a great many of them have been unable to resist the power of the Darwinist dictatorship, despite knowing the truth, they have surrendered rather than stand up and be counted. The description here squares exactly with our own day, describing some people's submission to the Darwinist dictatorship. This is the system of the antichrist.
Exactly as the above passage describes, Darwinism is a theory developed in order to be able to reject belief in God (surely God is beyond that). Ever since the day it was announced, it has fed atheism across the world and has made believers in God and advocates of creation targets for the supporters of evolution. Darwinism is the basis for all atheist ideologies. This characteristic of Darwinism's also means that it exactly matches the description in the above passage.
Today, there is not a single village or a single town anywhere in the world that Darwinism cannot reach. The foul ideology of the antichrist has spread everywhere.
It is perfectly clear from these statements that the antichrist described in the Gospel exactly matches Darwinism, which is spreading poison to all communities today. The descriptions of the antichrist in the Torah and the Koran also exactly match Darwinist ideology. The various descriptions in the holy scriptures all refer to the same antichrist. The antichrist is not, as some evangelicals believe, a single country or nation: It is Darwinism, which has assumed control over societies, nations and countries.
The dangerous aspect of those evangelicals discussed here is that they equate the supporters of goodness, love and beauty with the antichrist. According to this incorrect view, a person or a society that is not Christian is made up of potential antichrists, and if they espouse peace, brotherhood, friendship and love, then they are declaring themselves to be the antichrist. Evangelicals also misinterpret the description of the "savior Mahdi" in the Koran and the Torah, confusing him with the antichrist. This false conception of the antichrist they propose therefore indoctrinates people with the ideas that "You must not advocate peace," "You must not call people to brotherhood, joy and union" and that "You must be suspicious of people who call for friendship and brotherhood." Even though they may be unaware of it, or even unwilling for it to happen, they are doing precisely what the antichrist wants and are serving his purposes by depicting good as evil.
One of the incorrect beliefs that some evangelicals hold about Muslims is their explanation on the subject of dissimulation. The Arabic word "taqiyya" means "caution or concealment." In the Koran God says, "Those who reject God after having believed – except for someone forced to do it whose heart remains at rest in its belief – but as for those whose breasts become dilated with unbelief, anger from God will come down on them. They will have a terrible punishment."
This verse describes how someone who is actually a believer can deny his faith, on a purely temporary basis, in the face of threats to his own life or that of others. To put it another way, it is permissible for him to dissimulate - to deny his faith in other words - in the face of threats to his life, property, family or country. That is all that the concept of dissimulation means.
However, a concept that is so completely transparent has been exposed to misinterpretation by various evangelicals and opponents of Islam. These people interpret this concept, which is set out so clearly in the Koran, according to their own lights to mean "Muslims who support peace build their whole lives around a lie and disseminate that lie in order to deceive people." In fact, far from being a misinterpretation, this is an outright slander. The people who make this claim are defaming Muslims by saying that "They advocate peace, but they will sooner or later reveal their true faces and engage in slaughter." Other opponents of Islam seek to distort the subject by saying, "They may seem to support peace and freedom of ideas and belief, but they will eventually seek to compel everyone to convert to Islam." This is a huge error and deception.
First and foremost, true Muslims believe in and practice unconditionally what God reveals in the Koran. And what is revealed in the Koran is love, peace, compassion and forgiveness. The sincerity that lies at the essence of Islam is for the heart and the tongue to be as one. Muslims therefore strongly avoid exhibiting any moral values outside those of the Koran. In accordance with God's commands, they always advocate peace, love, brotherhood and compassion.
As can be seen from the verse cited above, dissimulation means a person under pressure saying the words that he is not a believer for the purpose of escaping his predicament. It is most astonishing that such a concept, which applies only to one special situation, which a Muslim may never ever encounter, should be distorted and ascribed to a Muslim's entire life. People who fall into this error are ignorant of the true Islam and unaware that the moral values revealed in the Koran are based on sincerity and honesty. A Muslim cannot live a lie; that is unlawful. A Muslim lives his whole life with the honesty that comes from being a Muslim. He espouses peace and love, not out of dissimulation, but because that is what God commands in the Koran.
There is a grotesque logical error going on here. Imagine that someone devotes his entire life to peace and brotherhood and making people friends, all for God's sake. Then imagine that he one day decides to murder those people he brought together in a union of love by overcoming thousands of difficulties. First of all, this is a most illogical and perverse way of looking at things. If someone has satanic ideas and desires to kill people, then there is certainly no need to dissimulate, especially at a time when slaughter is so widespread in the world. He could act on this devilish idea under any circumstances. Indeed, we know that the supporters of the antichrist who imagine they can use religion as a tool do this today without batting an eyelid. These people appear in the name of religion, claim to be killers because "that is what the faith commands," and thus utter a terrible lie and falsehood against the faith. That is the true system of the antichrist.
According to the mindset that says, "People who advocate peace are engaging in dissimulation," all those who support peace but who are not Christians must be labeled as the antichrist: All those who support love must be regarded as the antichrist. Everyone who wishes all people to come together, no matter what their religion, language, race, culture or nation, must be the antichrist. People who advocate affection are the antichrist. In short, they would prohibit a Muslim from exhibiting all the moral virtues that God praises in the Koran, the Torah and the Gospel because if a Muslim exhibits moral virtues, if he keeps peace and love alive, then he matches that evangelical description of the antichrist. It therefore appears impossible for true Muslims who seek to establish unity in this world and forge brotherhood and an inter-faith alliance to be friends with an evangelical because anyone who wants friendship is suspected of being the antichrist, while anyone who does not want friendship is an enemy. This wrongheaded logic literally prohibits people from being virtuous.
That way of thinking is by itself enough to inflict tragedy on the world. Under it, there would be no more peace in the world, no compassion and no forgiveness. World peace and people coming together in love would be impossible under such a perspective, because 23% of the world's population are believed to be the antichrist. Since it is impossible to forge an alliance with the supporters of the antichrist, then the false conclusion from this is that Muslims must always be avoided, that one must not be deceived by their calls for peace, and that if they speak of brotherhood, friendship, union and unity, one must not believe them; this is the highly dangerous and perverse logic that evangelicals put out and cause thousands of people to believe.
One important example of this is the perverse allegations that some radicals who portray themselves as Muslims make against Jews. They have also tried to have the perverse perspective described above applied against Jews by Muslims. They indoctrinate people with the idea that Jews must be hated and one must never be their friends. Although the radicals in question are working very hard on this, we, as true believers who abide by the Koran, are perfectly well aware that Muslims must never adopt such an attitude toward the Jews. We believe Jews who obey the profound commands of the Torah when they say, "We want to bring peace to the world, and this is what the Torah tells us." Because, just like us, they are advocating the essence of faith, in other words, peace and love.
The same thing also applies to Christians. Someone who claims to be a Muslim may believe that a Christian who says he is expecting the coming of Jesus (pbuh) is engaging in dissimulation and that this Christian will soon come and murder him. It might be quite easy to form such an impression when one looks at the attitude of some Christians toward Muslims. But no true Muslim would ever expect such a thing from a true Christian and he would never regard it as dissimulation. He knows that a true Christian who obeys the Gospel will be full of love and affection. The idea that "whoever loves what is good must be the antichrist" is both totally illogical and has no place in the true conception of religion created by God.
By making these claims, some evangelicals are in one sense attempting to prepare the way for further war and conflict which has brought disaster and terror to all mankind. Many of them may not realize it, but what they are doing is terribly harmful. They condition people to think that peace will never come and that scenes of terror will continue. They give rise to new communities of fear, and they turn these communities into ones far removed from the Gospel and filled with hatred and rage. They imagine that this is a service to the Gospel and Christianity. However, by doing this, they are wittingly or unwittingly serving the system of the antichrist that has come to dominate the world today. That is why it is essential for people to see what a huge danger is posed by this allegation, which has now become traditional and the subject of blind belief by many.
People who say that, "Muslims are dissimulating when they say they want peace" are clearly not sufficiently well informed about what the Koran really commands. Jews and Christians are placed under the protection of Muslims in the Koran. A Muslim has a responsibility to show the People of the Book love and affection. These commands exist, not so that people can dissimulate, but so that they can live by the love and friendship that form the basis of true Koranic morality. Since a Muslim lives by the true moral values of the Koran, he will feel love and affection for the People of the Book.
In addition, according to the Koran, a Muslim can marry a woman from the People of the Book and eat their food. Can anyone suddenly decide one day to murder the person he married, the mother of his children, whom he addresses as "darling" or "beloved"? This is a terrible allegation to make; that after years of treating his wife well and making a family together, having children and treating her with love and respect, a Muslim man will suddenly reach for his gun and say, "I was only pretending all those years, and now I am going to kill you."
This is an insane belief and quite bluntly speaking, pathological paranoia. The evangelicals in question fail to comprehend the logical flaws inherent in it. Since they are ignorant of the commands of the Koran they are unable to make a proper analysis, and as a result a great many of them end up as ignorant enemies of Islam. Therefore, no permanent peace and friendship can be established.
Some evangelicals maintain that Hazrat Mahdi will eventually be seen to have engaged in dissimulation. The Mahdi will supposedly abandon his peaceable policy and wreak terrible slaughter. The finest reply to this irrational claim comes from the hadiths of our Prophet (pbuh). Passages very similar to the hadiths can also be seen in the Torah.
The greatest quality of the Mahdi, in whom Muslims believe and who is described in considerable detail in hadiths, is that when he takes charge he will not permit one drop of blood to be shed. There is one very important point that needs to be emphasized here; the Mahdi's avoidance of bloodshed is the command of our Prophet: Our Prophet said this through the revelation bestowed on him. It is therefore impossible for Hazrat Mahdi to step outside that commandment. If someone does disobey that command and sheds blood, then he is no longer a Muslim. Hazrat Mahdi will implement our Prophet's command willingly, with love and with fervor. It is impossible for him to do anything else, and neither will he do so.
The qualities that a person must have in order to be Hazrat Mahdi are set out in detail in the hadiths. We are told that Hazrat Mahdi will emphasize love, peace, brotherhood and compassion and will wage an intellectual campaign to disseminate this and will be instrumental in people coming to have faith.
The Mahdi revealed in Islamic sources is the same person as the King Moshiach from Judaic sources and the Paraclete and the water bearer in the Gospels. We are now in the age of the way of the Mahdi. By the will of God, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is alive and at work now, and we are simply awaiting his appearance. Therefore, since this is the age of the Mahdi, there will be no more wars after this; the great wars have come to an end. Rumors of war will persist for a while longer, but there will be no more real wars. This means that the expectations of war on the part of some evangelicals will not bear fruit.
One of the greatest qualities of Hazrat Mahdi in the eyes of Islam is that as soon as he takes charge he will eliminate all weaponry. This also appears in the Torah, which says that the King Moshiach (the Mahdi) will destroy all weaponry when he takes charge. All weapons will be melted down and benefit mankind by being used in industry. The fact that a small group of people still talk of war will not alter this lovely destiny that God has ordained for this world.
The destiny of this world is heading toward the Golden Age. Yes, prior to the coming of the Mahdi in our day there will be birth pains as also described in the Gospel, and these are currently happening; the turmoil in the world is an indicator of these birth pangs, but none of these will lead to a major world war. The hadiths tell us there will be talk of war, but no war will happen. The antichrist will be defeated by Hazrat Mahdi. However, this will not be through bloodshed and killing, as some evangelicals believe, but with compassion, friendship and knowledge.
People will seek refuge in the Mahdi as honey bees cluster around their sovereign. He will fill the world that was once full of cruelty, with justice. His justice will be as such that he will not wake a sleeping person, not even one drop of blood will be shed. The Earth will return to the age of bliss. (Al-Qawl al-Mukthasar fi 'Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 29, 48)
The Mahdi will follow the way of the Prophet (pbuh). He will not wake a sleeping person or no blood will be shed. (Al-Barzanji, Portents of Doomsday, p. 163)
He [the Mahdi] will fill the Earth with justice, just as people previously filled it with cruelty. (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/348)
The Earth, which is full of cruelty and oppression, will overflow with justice after his [the Mahdi's] coming. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20)
Like the cup fills with water so will Earth fill with peace. There will be no enmity left between any people. All hostility, fighting and envy will surely disappear. (Sahih Muslim, 1/136)
... The good become even better, and even the wicked ones are treated well. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 17)
Since Hazrat Mahdi will allow no blood to be spilled and will destroy all weaponry, the claims made by some evangelicals are obviously untrue. Hazrat Mahdi's quality of not shedding blood will come about as the result of his intellectual struggle for peace over a period of many years. People will embrace one another as brothers and a climate of true love will emerge. Hazrat Mahdi will give messages of peace and friendship to all believers throughout his life in order for this climate to come about. The whole world will come to adopt the idea of peace. They will all be taught the beauty of love and will cast hatred aside. Therefore, while great efforts are being made, in the face of enormous difficulties, to sow the seeds of love at a time when the world is in intense turmoil and disorder, it is extraordinarily illogical and a violation of the hadiths and the Torah for the evangelicals in question to say that Hazrat Mahdi will suddenly say, "All this was just dissimulation. I did it so I can now kill people."
Hazrat Mahdi will have eliminated all weapons, convinced people of the need for peace, made them love one another and installed justice. He will have achieved this in the face of various difficulties, slanders, false accusations and threats, through his intellectual struggle. How could he then suddenly decide to start killing people in the way some Christians allege? Hazrat Mahdi will never do that. Moreover, the climate will have changed in such a way as to not permit any wars. There will be supporters of peace everywhere, but not a single weapon. Weapons will have been melted down and eradicated. How, when according to the Koran everyone has been convinced of the need for peace, could they ever be convinced of the need for war again? People will have been shown evidence and verses from the Koran. They will have been taught how the Koran commands that peace must reign on Earth. They will have been told to treat Christians and Jews with love and affection. Everyone will have realized that this is God's command. So how will people be convinced of the opposite?
This is of course exceedingly illogical. It is through the presence of Hazrat Mahdi that people will be made to forget war. According to the Koran, the truth of the matter will come to people in the time of Hazrat Mahdi. Nobody can spoil the truth in any way. The age of the system of the Mahdi will be a glorious time when people live by the loving warmth of the Koran, in peace and tranquility.
Although the evangelicals who make the claims we have been looking at in this section are people who love the Gospel, they have come to believe in a terrifying fantasy that we cannot see in the Gospel. What these people overlook is that the antichrist can have such a terrifying impact even on believers. Someone who espouses a faith that expects blood to rise as high as horses' manes is clearly living in a nightmare and causing his own followers to share that nightmare. The system of the antichrist immediately reveals itself here.
If someone is a true Muslim, he has an obligation to desire and advocate peace. He has a responsibility to build love and affection among people. If someone is a true Muslim he cannot feel any hatred for Christians or Jews; these things are unlawful for him. Indeed, a Muslim has a responsibility to protect even someone who does not believe, and even at the cost of his own life. This is an attribute of Muslims revealed in the Koran:
If any of the idolaters ask you for protection, give them protection until they have heard the words of God. Then convey them to a place where they are safe. That is because they are a people who do not know. (Koran, 9:6)
According to the Koran, a Muslim has an obligation to protect anyone who seeks his protection, no matter who they may be. If a Muslim departs from this moral value, then he is no longer a Muslim. This is a feature of the fine moral values he must maintain throughout his life. The hadiths also reveal that Muslims and Christians will forge an alliance against the antichrist. When Jesus (pbuh) comes, he will work together with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and eliminate the antichrist through knowledge. It is of the greatest importance for members of these two faiths to form an alliance if the system of the antichrist is to be eliminated and peace is to rule the world.
When Hazrat Mahdi, who loves all faiths and all prophets, comes, God will also bring the beauty of that love to the world. The world will be a place of love and peace, of beauty and plenty. It is thus a matter of urgency for the evangelicals in question to free themselves from these false, pernicious and terrifying ideas and to live by the joy of the Messiah and the Mahdi and to prepare the way for this climate of peace by spreading love and brotherhood. That is what God wants.
