Surely, Allah is beyond time and space, whereas human beings are bound by them both. This evident reality means that the past, present and future are only one moment in Allah's Sight. In His Sight, everything begins and ends in a moment. From the creation of the world to the Judgment, everything has been ordained by Allah, down to the smallest details. Every event, from the smallest to the greatest, has been recorded in the book called "Lawh Mahfuz" (Mother of the Book).
Every occurrence, in its every detail, along with its time and place, is contained within the destiny ordained by Allah. In the Qur'an, this fact is stated in these words: "Every communication has its time, and you will certainly come to know." ( Surat al-An'am: 67) This time is precisely predetermined such that "it cannot be delayed or advanced a single hour."
Of course, the time when the signs of the Last Day and the End Times will come to pass is determined in Allah's Sight down to the last second. For centuries, believers who sincerely believe in Allah have observed the occurrence of the signs of the Last Day with great interest and anticipation, knowing that what they are observing is the operation of fate. They have carefully considered the signs in the Qur'an and in the hadiths, and have endeavored to prepare themselves for the disorder and anguish of the first period of the End Times. As well, they have earnestly desired to live in the blessed Golden Age.
The verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths examined throughout this book have clearly presented a number of facts regarding the promises of Allah. The period in which we live is one in which a large part of these signs of the Hour have come to pass. Today's world is witnessing, for the first time in history, the evident fulfillment of these Divine promises, one after the other. Surely, these are the most important developments since the time of the Prophet (saas). To view these Divine signs dismissively, to neglect them or reject them is a great loss.
So, it is clearly seen that the twenty-first century marks the beginning of a totally new era in world history.
Allah's promises are certainly true. No one can change His promises or prevent their fulfillment. As in every matter, the best and most beautiful words in this matter are stated in the Qur'an. Allah reveals as follows:
Say: "Praise be to Allah. He will show you His signs and you will recognize them..." (Surat an-Naml: 93)
They said: "Glory be to You!
