Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) reveals in his accounts that “the life span of my Ummah will be 7,000 years.”
The Messenger of Allah (saas) stated: The life span of the world is seven days in the afterlife days. Almighty Allah said that a day in the sight of the Lord is like a thousand of your years.
In another hadith, our Prophet (saas) states that 5,600 of these 7,000 years had passed up until his own day. Five thousand, six hundred years have passed from this world. (Ali Ibn Husamaddin (Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, 89))
A calculation of 7,000-5,600 based on these dates given by our Prophet (saas) gives the 1,400. We are now in the year 1430 [the Hegira style.] (The 100 years from 1,400 to 1,500 represent the 1400s.)
Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has revealed has revealed this with regard to the life span of the Ummah of Islam:
"THE LIFE OF MY UMMAH (COMMUNITY) WILL NOT EXCEED THE YEAR 1,500"
(Suyuti, Al-kashf `an (fi) Mujawazat Hadihi l-umma al-Alf, al-Hawi lil Fatawi, Suyuti. 2/248, commentary by Ruhul Bayan. Bursevi. (Arabic) 4/262, Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Kitab al-Ilal, p. 89.)
This means that during the 100-year period between 1,400 and 1,500 [the Hegira style], believers will meet with two such holy personages as the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), and this will be a very significant age when the moral values of Islam rule the world and the system of the antichrist is intellectually destroyed.
The period we are living in is the End Times. THE LAST AGE OF THE WORLD. All of the portents concerning the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) described by our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) have come true. And this will be a holy age when faith, love and peace rule the world. Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has reported that “the life of the Ummah will extend up to 1,500” [the Hegira style]. Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, the great Islamic scholar of the last century, said that “The probable life span of the Ummah, the time when Islamic moral values rule the world, will extend up to 1,506.” AFTER 1,506 THERE WILL BE A PERIOD CLOSE TO DOOMSDAY OF STRIFE, CORRUPTION AND BLOODSHED, WHEN PEOPLE ARE ENTIRELY DISTANCED FROM THE RELIGION.
THE EARTH IS NOW VERY OLD. We have now come to just about the end of the world. What we now await IS THE COMING OF THE PROPHET JESUS (PBUH) AND HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH) AND THE GENUINE AND POWERFUL FAITH THAT WILL RULE THE WORLD by means of these holy individuals.
All the Portents of the End Times Have Come about: There Will Be No More Major Wars
All of the portents of the End Times provided by our Prophet (saas) have come about. All the climates of war and disorder in the End Times described in the hadith as heralding the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) have taken place. “THE TWO WORLD WARS THAT ARE PROBABLY MEANT BY THE REFERENCES TO GOG AND MAGOG” in the Qur’an and the hadith ARE OVER AND DONE WITH. Ideologies such as communism, fascism and Darwinism that dragged whole societies toward irreligion once dominated, but these have now lost almost all their former influence. The Dabbat al-Ardh, a likely reference to the computer, has also appeared, and the Internet has spread across the world. All of these phenomena the hadith say will happen in the End Times have taken place. This period, so close to the end of the world, is now that of the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
NO BLOOD WILL BE SPILLED IN THIS TIME WHEN THE PROPHET JESUS (PBUH) AND HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH) WILL APPEAR, NOBODY WILL BE KILLED AND THERE WILL BE NO OPPRESSION. Following a long period of disorder
, the world will finally live by the love and peace brought with them by the moral values of the Qur'an for the first time after the Age of Happiness in which the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) lived. The honesty, beauty, tolerance and love of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will conquer people’s hearts and instill the beauty of faith in them.
For that reason, it is unjustified to produce terrifying scenarios regarding this holy period that will see the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Because this age is one of peace, happiness and brotherhood. It is an age when war, oppression, injustice and bloodshed will all come to an end, and when beauty will prevail. This period is the GOLDEN AGE. It is a period of calm and love, when people attain material and spiritual peace, enjoy Allah’s bountiful blessings and turn away from war, oppression and conflict.
People will live by the essential moral values of Islam, the religion of peace and love, as a result of which disorder and conflict will come to an end. We are told all this in the hadith.
The Golden Age is a time when Muslims, as well as Christians and Jews, will live in peace and ease. Contrary to the idea some masonic circles try to indoctrinate people with, the members of the Abrahamic faiths will not war against one another in the time of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). There will be no question of such phenomena as war, conflict, atom bombs, attacking Israel or shedding blood at the Kaaba in this holy age. On the contrary, Jerusalem will be a better, pleasanter and securer place than ever before, and peace will reign there, as in the rest of the world.
Almighty Allah has always defended the Jews, the descendants of the prophets. In the End Times, Allah will again protect the Jews through Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Allah speaks of the existence of the Jewish Holy Land in the Qur’an. The Qur’an notes that so long as they live honestly and in devotion to Allah’s commands, the Jews will live in peace and security in the Holy Land. (Surat al-Baqara, 62 – Surat al-Ma’ida, 69). Therefore, IN THE END TIMES JERUSALEM WILL BE FILLED WITH FAITH AND LOVE OF ALLAH AND WILL BECOME A CITY OF PEACE IN WHICH BELIEVERS FROM ALL FAITHS LIVE TOGETHER IN SAFETY AND BROTHERHOOD.
Those who, under the influence of various masonic circles, expect war and bloodshed in the time of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) are mistaken. Some ill-informed Muslims and Christians who have been exposed to this masonic indoctrination and provocation act in the light of that way of thinking and fall out with one another, totally ignoring the danger posed by irreligion. However, these events they anticipate will not take place, AND ABSOLUTELY NO BLOOD WILL BE SPILLED IN THE TIME OF THE PROPHET JESUS (PBUH) AND HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH). Allah will not allow the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to be instrumental in any such possibility.
Degeneration Will Begin after 1506, and the Society of Denial That Will Rule the World Will Be Confronted by Doomsday
Shortly before Doomsday, after 1506 [the Hegira style] and the martyrdom of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), there will be a worldwide physical and spiritual degeneration. After that date, wars will follow one after the other and there will be anarchy, terror and slaughter; the bloodthirsty system of oppression will rule the world. Irreligion will spread and not one Holy Book will remain in the world. This period is that of THE FINAL APPEARANCE OF THE CORRUPTION OF GOG AND MAGOG.
The distinguishing feature of Gog and Magog, described in the Qur’an, is that they are bloodthirsty and anarchic. This system, which led to the deaths of 250-300 million people in the First and Second World Wars, will come to the fore in the run-up to Doomsday after 1506. The final stage of the corruption of Gog and Magog that will erupt after 1506 will be of the kind of that of “Genghis Khan and Hulagu,” in the worlds of the worthy Islamic scholar Bediuzzaman. Genghis Khan and Hulagu are two despotic rulers who shed rivers of blood. The corruption of Gog and Magog that will occur after 1506 will be on that scale.
This heretical, bloody and corrupt period is that when the world has come to an end. From what we can tell from the hadith and Bediuzzaman’s accounts, Doomsday will take place in 1545 (2120 AD). The terrible corruption that has enfolded the Earth will come to an end with Doomsday, which will break the pride of the deniers who turned their backs on belief in Allah.
Genuine Muslims, Christians and Jews Must Not Fall for the Masons’ Tricks
It is very important for Muslims, Christians and Jews not to fall into error on this subject: According to the indications in the hadith, the final corruption of Gog and Magog and the climate of war and oppression in the world will take place after 1506, very close to Doomsday. Until that time, and by Allah’s leave, the age of peace, security and love of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will prevail on Earth. This period is the Golden Age. During that time, “not a single person’s nose will be made to bleed, and a sleeping person will not be wakened.” i
It must not be forgotten that the aim of various masonic circles is always to divide those who believe in Allah, to set them against one another, and to set up an oppressive system by intellectually spreading bloodshed. Therefore, the important thing is not to fall for the tricks of the masonic circles in question, but to strengthen genuine belief in Allah by spreading the peace and love of which He approves.
Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has said that in the time of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), love, peace, affection, compassion and security will reign and that no blood will be spilled:
People will seek refuge in the Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) 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 OR EVEN SHED ONE DROP OF BLOOD. The Earth will return to the age of happiness. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi 'Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p.29)
[Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] will follow the way of the Prophet. HE WILL NOT WAKE UP A SLEEPING PERSON OR SHED BLOOD. (Al-Barzanji, Pamuk Publishing, Istanbul, 2002, p. 163)
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) no one will be woken up from their sleep OR HAVE A BLEEDING NOSE. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 44)
Those obeying him [Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] will pay homage to him between ruqun and maqam (around Qaba). They will not wake a sleeping person, NEVER SHED BLOOD. (Al-Haytamî, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 24)
This (Amr) [Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] WILL FILL EARTH WITH JUSTICE, just as people previously filled it with cruelty. (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/348)
The world filled with oppression and tyranny WILL OVERFLOW WITH JUSTICE AFTER HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh)] COMES. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 20)
THERE WILL BE SUCH AN ABUNDANCE OF JUSTICE IN THE HAZRAT MAHDI'S (pbuh) TIME that just as all the goods taken away by force will be returned to their owners. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 23)
HIS [THE MAHDI'S (pbuh)] JUSTICE WILL COVER ALL PLACES and he will rule among people with the Sunna of the Prophet (saas). He will even also call for one who is in need to be brought forward, and when that command is obeyed only one person will come. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 20)
If there were only one day left for the world, that day would be lengthened until a man from among the people of my household, was sent; just as the Earth is filled with cruelty, HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE. (Sunan Abu Dawud, 5/92)
Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is one of my people, and HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH TRUTH AND JUSTICE, just as it is now filled with cruelty and torture. (Sunan Abu Dawud, 5/93)
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 DISAPPEAR. (Sahih-i Muslim, 1/136)
... In the same way that Almighty Allah began with me, so He will bring matters to an end with him (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)). In the same way that THEY WERE FREED FROM POLYTHEISM AND ANTIPATHY (DISCORD AND ENMITY) AND THEIR HEARTS WERE FILLED WITH FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE THROUGH ME, SO IT WILL BE AGAIN (WITH THE COMING OF HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh)). (Portents of the Coming of the Mahdi of the End Times, Jalaladdin as-Suyuti , p. 20)
... IN HIS [ HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh)] TIME THE GOOD BECOME EVEN MORE GOOD, AND EVEN THE WICKED ONES ARE TREATED WELL. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 17)
