I CAME AT THE AFTERNOON PRAYER OF MANKIND. (Ahmad ibn Hanbal. Kitab al-`Ilal p.89)
Considering this hadith together with that reading, "The life of my community will not exceed 1500 years”;
WHEN WE TAKE THE TIME FROM AFTERNOON TO EVENING, ONE FOURTH OR ONE FIFTH OF THE DAY, AS 1500 YEARS, THEN THE LIFE SPAN OF MANKIND EMERGES AS BETWEEN 6000 AND 7500 YEARS. (Allah knows the truth.)
MASS REALIZATION OF THE PORTENTS OF THE END TIMES IN THE LAST 30 YEARS CONFIRMS THAT THE LIFE SPAN OF THIS WORLD IS 7000 YEARS.
In 8 authentic hadiths said by our Prophet (saas) and narrated by Imam Suyuti who is one of the greatest hadith imams it is notified that the life span of the world is 7000 years and 5600 years of this have passed until the time of our Prophet (saas).
When we extract 5600 from 7000, 1400 years is left.
In another hadith, our Prophet (saas) said that “the life span of my community will not exceed 1500 years.”
Since we are in the year of Hijri 1430 now and calculate that we are in the Hijri 14th century till the year of Hijri 1500, then it is a certain fact that Hazrat Mahdi (as) has to come within this century.
Because there is no other century left for Hazrat Mahdi (as) to come.
The realization of almost all the portents of the End Times narrated by our Prophet (saas) in the hadiths one after the other since the beginning of the Hijri 1400, clearly shows that we are in the End Times and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come within this century.
Further the fact that all of the portents have been realized in the last 30 years confirms the hadiths that the life span of the world is 7000 years, 5600 years of this have passed till the time of our Prophet (saas) and the life span of this community will not quite pass 1500 years. (In the following pages, these portents are explained in detail.)
