Hadith of the Week

Women should learn the Qur'an.

"Umm Hisham, r.a., the daughter of Haritha narrates:The place where bread was cooked was the same for me and the Prophet, pbuh, and that's how I learned sura Qaf which he used to recite in the [nearby] mosque every Friday."
[Sahih Muslim hadith #873 and Musnad Ahmad hadith # 28003]

Comment by Kaukab Siddique:

Many hadith indicate the devotion of female Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, to learning the Qur'an. InshaAllah i will quote more on this subject in the future. Try to imagine the intensity of devotion of Umm Hishsm, r.a., that while she was cooking, she was listening to the Propher, pbuh, reciting sura Qaf week after week and finally memorized it. My firm belief is that the more women know the Quran. the more they will know their rights. The same applies to hadith

Qaf is chapter 50 of the Quran and the 5 daily prayers are indicated in its verses 39-40.


Jamaat al-Muslimeen Activity in Philadelphia.

In the shadow of pro-Israel University.
December 30.

This is a big city about 100 miles north of Baltimore. One of the most popular mosques is in the shadow of the University of Pennsylvania known affectionately as UP. Ironically the university is a stronghold of Israel including professors imported directly from the terrorist entity. The Muslims are strongly anti-Israel.

On December 30, a 4-page Jamaat al-Muslimeen document was given to 100 Muslims after Juma who grabbed it like hot cakes.

Across the street is a halal restaurant where you can eat delicious lamb and the best ochra. It's heavily crowded after juma'.

The first Ameer of Jamaat al-Muslimeen came from this community.

The 4-page document given to 100, mostly African Americans, Arabs, Bangladeshis and Africans, included these items:

  1. Hadith showing that Abu Bakr, r.a., and Umar, r.a., were the top leaders of the Prophet's, pbuh, community.

  2. Mosul, Iraq: IS wins 9 weeks of battle, also advanced to Palmyra in Syria.

  3. Imam Badi Ali's strategies for education: Teach how to think & give love even when not due.

  4. Pakistani leader Sirajul Haq condemns Pakistani regime.

  5. Atrocities in Aleppo as Russian-Iranian forces break in.

The Quest for Peace
In South Asia
Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai
December 31, 2016

"Peace need not be impracticable, and war need not be inevitable."
-John F. Kennedy

Peace has eluded Kashmir for more than 69 years, every since British sovereignty lapsed on August 15, 1947. The Government of India holds the decisive cards to end Kashmir's convulsions and carnage on a genocidal scale. No peace formula worth its salt, however, depends on altruism or unselfishness sentiments to succeed. India will accede to the steps necessary for peace, i.e., permitting Kashmir's sovereignty to be determined by the voice of its 20 million people(13 million in IOK), only if it perceives that such a bow to self-determination and international law and morality will strengthen its national and economic security. That advocacy task is not fanciful, but can prevail if pursued with deftness and soft diplomacy.

Kashmir has been plagued by conflict since 1947 for a simple reason: the denial of self-determination that has been enjoyed by countless other peoples in comparable circumstances, most recently in East Timor, Eritrea, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Southern Sudan.

In the meantime, life for Kashmiris has oscillated between grisly and gruesome. Approximately 700,000 Indian military and paramilitary forces occupy Kashmir and de facto impose martial law as it has been now under curfew for more than five months.

A free and fair plebiscite would show a commanding majority of the Kashmiri people in favor of independence. No impartial observer disputes that fact. Infact it was confirmed by a survey that was conducted by London-based Chatham House in May 2010. If India believed its rule in Kashmir was by consent rather than by coercion, it would hold a plebiscite with alacrity, just as the United States routinely permits the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to vote for independence. In the latter case,independence has never garnered more than 4% of the ballots. The converse would be true in Kashmir. Accession to India would capture at most 4%of a plebiscite vote in the Vale of Kashmir.

Kashmir'slegal and moral case for self-determination is equal or greater than that of the United States when it declared independence in 1776 with a population of but 3 - 4 million. The American grievances against King George III were but trifles compared to the human rights inferno which afflicts Kashmir. The Declaration of Independence protests the maintenance of standing armies, the obstruction of beneficent laws, the denial of trial by jury, and for making the military superior to the civil power. Kashmiris, in contrast, suffer from those same grievances, plus the gruesome human rights violations amplified above. In sum, every American who defends the Revolutionary War against Great Britain is compelled by legal and human rights principles to champion self-determination in Kashmir.

Peace in Kashmir rides on two seemingly conflicting realities. Kashmir will be chronically convulsed until its sovereignty is determined in accord with the wishes of the Kashmiri people. A plebiscite conducted by the United Nations is one option on that score. Indeed, United Nations Security Council resolutions contemplate that method of self-determination. Contrary to what some have said, Kashmir is not a territorial dispute between Pakistan and India. And it is not a dispute provoked by foreign infiltrators or extremists. It is not a struggle between theocracy and secularism. Kashmir is every bit as much about self-determination as was East Timor or Southern Sudan in 1999 and 2011 respectively.

The second reality is that India holds 99% or more of the political and military cards in Kashmir. No outside influence has exerted more than trivial direct influence over India's Kashmir rule or diplomacy. For more than 69 years, the United Nations Security Council has not lifted a finger to enforce its plebiscite resolutions concerning Kashmir. Neither the United States nor NATO would risk a single soldier for Kashmiri self-determination. Pakistan is no military match for India. Its alluring economy, nuclear arsenal, and importance in the war against international terrorism deter moral or other sanctions for India's aggression and misrule of Kashmir. India's superpower status in South Asia and global stature explains why progress towards peace in Kashmir has been zero for more than 69 years. All the periodic dancing and jousting between India and Pakistan have been at best sound and fury signifying nothing.

India will never budge from its intransigence over Kashmir, say some experts, until it perceives that its national and economic security would be strengthened, not weakened, by acceding to self-determination. That task of persuasion is no fool's errand. An independent Kashmir would not create military or terrorist vulnerabilities for India. The Kashmir's constitution might contain a no-war clause as in Article 9 of the Japanese constitution. It might prohibit a Kashmiri army, as in Costa Rica. It could prohibit any foreign military bases or alliances, i.e., insist on permanent neutrality, as in the 1955 Austrian State Treaty. It could require Kashmir's adherence to all international counterterrorism conventions,including a corresponding extradition treaty with both India and Pakistan. These safeguards would make India more, not less secure from Kashmir dangers.

More important, Kashmir self-determination would eliminate the chief cause of India's national security vulnerability. War with Pakistan would become fanciful and its military and paramilitary forces in Kashmir could be redeployed to the northeast or elsewhere to confront local secession. An independent Kashmir would not create a cascading dismembering of India. Its legal history is unique. And it speaks volumes that self-determination in East Timor, Eritrea, and Czechoslovakia did not occasion a spiraling disintegration of Indonesia, Ethiopia, or the Czech and Slovak republics.

India's economy would also be uplifted by self-determination for Kashmir. Investment would climb because of greater political stability. India would save billions in slashed military expense. A free trade accord could be fashioned between India and an independent Kashmir to spur growth.

India would also be a candidate for permanent membership on the United Nations Security Council if it acceded to a free and fair plebiscite on Kashmir. Its international stature would rise, like that of the United States after yielding the Panama Canal back to Panama. And Pakistan could offer a non-aggression guarantee if India permitted self-determination 13 million of Kashmir, a speck among India's population of more than 1 billion.

In sum, a strong case can be made and should be made to India by the President-elect Trump that its security and stature would jump rather than fall by accepting a Kashmir plebiscite with reasonable constitutional safeguards. As President-elect has said that he would be honored to play a mediating role in addressing a 'very, very hot tinderbox' of Kashmir. It cannot be expected that India would act against its own perceived self-interests in Kashmir since no other country in the world has ever done so.

During the time needed to persuade India of its enormous benefits from Kashmir self-determination, it should embrace measures calculated to alleviate the misery of Kashmiris and to diminish extremism. India should slash the number of its military and security personnel posted in Kashmir. Forces should be withdrawn completely from civilian inhabited areas, and bunkers there should be dismantled. A seething siege mentality must be lifted from Kashmir to reduce bitterness and conflict.

Emergency legislation that places the civilian Kashmiri population at the disposal of India's staggering military and paramilitary personnel should be repealed. Illustrative are the Jammu & Kashmir Disturbed Area Act of 1990 and the Armed Forces Jammu & Kashmir Special Powers Act (AFSPA) of 1990.

All torture and extrajudicial killings by Indian forces should be unswervingly denounced and punished. All political prisoners should be released. As suggested by the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights on September 13, 2016, a UN fact finding mission should be granted access to Jammu and Kashmir to monitor and document the human rights landscape. All restrictions on peaceful political dissent or protest should be lifted.

Kashmiri leadership who disavow violence in favor of a negotiated settlement should be permitted to travel abroad without hindrance. The Diaspora Kashmiri leadership should enjoy access and visas to visit Jammu and Kashmir. Further, direct talks over the future of Kashmir should be commenced with all parties concerned - India, Pakistan and Kashmiri leadership - with a pledge that the final status of the territory will not diverge from the wishes of the Kashmiri people and an exploration of what dispensation in the territory would scrupulously honor India's national security and economic needs. And India should renounce any intent to build a Berlin-like wall along the Cease-fire Line.

These unilateral gestures would not represent appeasement, but an enlightened understanding of India's best interests in Kashmir. They would give heart to the peaceful forces in Kashmir, who believe that Kashmir is a political issue and needs to be resolved through peaceful negotiations.

The time for delusions over peace in Kashmir has long since expired. All advocacy and intellectual energies must be directed towards showing India that its self-interests are allied to self-determination in Kashmir; and, that India's acceding to self-determination would enable India to play its rightful role in the international diplomacy.

Syria Torn Asunder. Assad still can't win. {Situation on January 1, 2017.}
by Kaukab Siddique

  1. Bashar Assad has been saved by Russia. The opposition stronghold of eastern Aleppo has been literally demolished block by block.

  2. So the regime of Assad now holds the major cities of Damascus, most of Homs and Hama along with the traumatized city of Aleppo.

  3. The Free Syrian Army [FSA] including Jaysh al-Islam etc., holds all the suburbs of Damascus except one held by ISIS and one by al-Nusra.

  4. FSA also holds most of southern Syria, including Daraa and Quneitra except for a few forts held by Assad's men.

  5. Idlib province is held by al-Nusra and other "militant" Islamic groups along with western Aleppo province.

  6. The Islamic State [ISIS] holds al-Raqqa province and has advanced to Palmyra in Homs province. It is also advancing towards Hama.

  7. Turkey has advanced deep into north central Syria which was held by ISIS. It was going well but theTurkish forces received a serious setback at El Bab..

The situation could change drastically if the SDF from one side and Turkey from the other trap al-Raqqa.
Russia is still bombing al-Nusra in Idlib province. Another Aleppo type slaughter could eliminate a major opponent of Assad which is al-Nusra.

On the other hand, if ISIS continues advancing on Homs and Hama and the FSA in Damascus suburbs can continue to withstand daily bombing, Assad could be in trouble again.

For now Russia, Iran and Lebanese Hizbullah have saved Assad. Iran has also brought in hordes of Shias from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and these are being used to pillage and terrorize once the bombing is over.

ISIS has scored defensive victories in Mosul for 11 weeks. If that situation continues, battle hardened mujahideen from Mosul could come in to defend al-Raqqa. There are some reports indicating that process already.

Uncovering Pakistan's Financial Catastrophe.
Islamic Leader Demands Funds to rebuild Northern Areas devastated by the army.

It said that each Pakistani at present was under debt of Rs. 1,15,000 only due to irrational official spending and wrong priorities of the government. It said that misuse of government vehicles was a routine and cost the public exchequer billions and must be stopped.

The Shoora called for reorganization of all government departments and institutions in order to curb corruption and misuse of public money.

Through another resolution, the Shoora demanded the repeal of the FCR and merger of FATA with Khyber P. It also demanded proper census in FATA to get correct figures and due representation in the provincial assembly in 2018 elections. It demanded that local bodies elections should be held in the area after the merger and the constitution be fully enforced in the area after amending article 247. Administrative and judicial system be introduced in the area on the pattern of the Malakand division.

The Shoora further demanded a special package of minimum rupees one trillion for the

rehabilitation of the houses and infrastructure of the FATA area, declaring education emergency in the area with many new university campuses, a separate women university, engineering university, Technical university, Medical colleges and a net work of educational institutions.

IS Attacks Baath Party Headquarters in Tartous [Coast of Syria

Russia and Turkey joined in an appeal for cease fire on December 29. On December 30 most of the FSA opposition groups implemented the cease fire. Russia and Turkey stated that Islamic {"terrorist"] groups would not have the cease fire and both countries continued their attacks on Islamic groups on December 30, 31 and January 1.

America is not part of the agreement but is continuing its campaign against ISIS in the northeast of Syria and in Raqqa in tandem with Kurdish Communist groups [SDF[

Assad's forces disregarded the cease fire in the suburbs of Damascus and in the farmlands of Ghouta the Alawite forces made some headway. They also shelled FSA in Deraa [south Syria] and near Hama. In retaliation, FSA fired rockets at the two Shiite villages defended by Hizbullah, northeast of Idlib province.

Areas in Idlib were bombed by the Russians.

Jund al-Aqsa an autonomous Islamic fighting group. decided to join al-Nusra. This creates a problem for the Russians because the cease fire aims at isolating the Islamic [al-Qaida related] groups.

The NEW YEAR began with a martyrdom attack suspected from IS on the Baath Party headquarters in Tartous in the Alawite heartland where the Russian navy is based. Heavy casualties are suspected but details have been suppressed.

Turkey has continued to bomb El-Bab whose people support IS. Turkish bombing's civilian victims have reached 134 now including scores of women and children . On the ground, the Turkish army tanks and Syrian militia under its control are still stuck outside El Bab.

The Americans again bombed al-Raqqa and Kurdish SDF working with America has captured two more villages, IS retreated from these villages without fighting.

Reinforced Shia forces Launch New Assault on Mosul Simultaneously from East, North and South. No Headway.

Fighting In Kirkuk. Attacks on Baghdad.

After the arrival of reinforcements, the battered Shia armada launched a new offensive on December 29. However by January 1, the new offensive had stalled.

On December 29, US sources for the first time admitted that the US air force hit a hospital in Mosul and there were "probably" civilian casualties.

The assault this time was from three directions. The BBC indicated the intensity of the fighting in these words on December 31:

"The third day of the renewed push saw heavy clashes on the southeastern and northern fronts.

An army officer deployed in the southeast said there was fierce fighting on the edge of Intisar district on Saturday and advances were slowed by heavy machine gun fire, snipers and rockets attacks by militants entrenched in houses. "

The Baghdad regime issues propaganda bulletins but has not been able to indicate any important advances.

Instead the regime troops were attacked three days back in Kirkuk by IS though Kirkuk had been declared "liberated" two months back. The seriousness of the situation can be gauged from the US report that its air force carried out 15 strikes in Kirkuk to stop the militants.

After the civilian casualties in Mosul on December 29, IS attacked Shias in Baghdad on December 31 killing 29

Ingham County, Michigan

Crimes Against Women & Children.
Five Year Old Stabbed to Death. December 29.

A Michigan man accused of murdering his 5-year-old stepdaughter allegedly told police he "snapped" when she asked for food, stabbing the little girl to death and then setting her body on fire in an effort to cover up the crime, officials said in court.

Thomas McClellan, 25, allegedly became incensed when Luna Younger wouldn't leave his bedroom in their Holt apartment after she asked him to get her something to eat on November 1, Ingham County Detective Chuck Buckland testified during a preliminary hearing Thursday, according to the Lansing State Journal.

McClellan allegedly told police that he wrestled the little girl to the ground, sat on her hips and stabbed her numerous times, the detective said.

He then allegedly covered the child's lifeless body with blankets, doused the pile with vodka and set it on fire, Buckland continued.

A medical examiner reportedly testified that Luna died from at least five stab wounds to the chest and was dead by the time her body was burned.

Firefighters responding to the spreading fire eventually discovered Younger's body under the blankets, but they said they knew nothing could be done to save her.

"I knew the victim had expired," Delhi Township Firefighter Corey Drolett testified.

Still, he passed her little body through a window to a fellow firefighter and CPR was "very lightly" performed on the child.

"Based on the situation [I] felt that would show [the mother] that we were attempting some effort," Drolett said.

Younger's mother, Victoria McClellan, who was at work at the time of the killing, and told authorities she and her husband had been "bickering" earlier in the day, the State Journal wrote.

She convinced McClellan to surrender to police. He was taken into custody shortly thereafter.

McClellan, who had no criminal history, was charged with murder, first-degree child abuse and first-degree arson. He could face up to life in prison if found guilty.

Judge Thomas Boyd ruled that there was enough evidence to proceed to trial on all three charges. A court date has not yet been set


 Imam Ali Siddiqui

Jesus- A Prophet of Islam
Second Coming of Jesus?

Imam Ali Siddiqui, 2016

The Quran does not mention Second Coming of Jesus (pbuh); however, Allah has mentioned in the Quran, speaking to Isa (pbuh), "I shall cause you to die ( Mutawaffeka) and shall raise you ( Rafeao'ka) to Me..." (Q 3:55): إِذْ قَالَ اللَّـهُ يَا عِيسَىٰ إِنِّي مُتَوَفِ§يكَ وَرَافِع¥كَ إِلَيَّ and at another place in the Quran Messenger Isa (pbuh) told Bani Israel, "Peace on the day I was born and on the day of my death ( a'moto)..." (Q 19:33): وَالسَّل¤امُ عَلَيَّ يَوْمَ وُلِدتُّ وَيَوْمَ أَمُوتُ

This establishes the death of Isa (pbuh) There is no mention in the Quran of the second coming of Isa (pbuh). The second coming of Isa would be such a great event that it should have been mentioned in the Quran.

("Second Coming of Jesus (pbuh) is a controversial subject among the scholars," mentioned Imam Ali Siddiqui, New Trend Magazine, Ramadan 1416/January-February.1996)

Isa (pbuh) is not Coming Back

If Isa (pbuh) returns to the earth Second Time that would contradict the Quranic Verse (Q 33:40) which establishes that Muhammed (pbuh) is the Last of the prophets and messengers (na-auzo billah): "Muhammad is not the father of (any) one of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets." (Q 33:40) َ مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّد¢ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِ£ُمْ وَلَـٰكِ¦ رَّسُولَ اللَّـهِ وَخَاتَم¤ النَّبِي¦ّينَ ۗ

It also established that "No more Messenger/Prophets are coming after the passing of Rasool Allah (pbuh) including Isa (pbuh) and it was confirmed by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by himself:

" La Nabi baa'di, Wa la ummatun baa'da ummatee. "No prophet after me and no nation after my nation." Hadith narrated in the Book of Beheqi.

"Anna Aa-khe-ril anbiaa' wa inna Masjidi Aa-khe-ril masajid. I am the last of prophets (of Allah) and my Masjid is the last of the masjids." Hadith narrated in the Book of Muslim.

No more Messengers and Prophets of Allah are coming any more after the passing of the Last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

Jesus (pbuh) as a Follower of Muhammad (pbuh)

Some says that Jesus (pbuh) will return as a follower of Muhammad (pbuh). Let's look at this from the Quran again:

Allah called Isa (pbuh) a messenger of Allah and gave him the Book and Wisdom and sent him to Bani Israel. We also believe today in all Prophets and Messengers of Allah including Isa (pbuh). If we don't believe in him,
our Iman will not be complete.

No Revelation, Wahee, is coming anymore which may change (na-auzo billah):

الْيَوْم¤ أَكْمَلْžُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُم¨ وَأَتْمَ¥ْتُ عَلَيْكُ¥ْ نِعْمَتِ  وَرَضِيت¥ لَكُمُ الْإِسْل¤امَ دِينًا ۚ

"Today I have perfected your Deen for you, and have completed My favor upon you, and have approved for you Islam as your Deen..." (Q 5:4) So, how and when Allah stripped Isa (pbuh) of his Prophethood?

Claim of Murder of Jesus (as)

...They claimed, "We killed the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God." They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him... (Quran, 4:157): وَقَوْلِ§ِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَ› الْمَسِي—َ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّـه وَمَا قَتَلُوه¥ وَمَا صَلَبُوه¥ ِ

Allah set the record straight. The claim of the people who were after Isa (pbuh): They did not kill Isa (pbuh), nor crucified him; however, this does not negate what Allah mentioned in the last conversation with Isa (pbuh) in (Q 3:55). Allah has mentioned in the Quran and what Allah did to Isa (pbuh), "I shall cause you to die (Mutawaffeka) and shall raise you (Rafeao'ka) to Me..." (Q 3:55)
إِذْ قَالَ اللَّـهُ يَا عِيسَىٰ إِنِّي مُتَوَفِ§يكَ وَرَافِع¥كَ إِلَيَّ

Isa (pbuh) - A Messenger to Bani Israel

"and (I appointed him) him a Messenger to the Children of Israel (with this Message): I have come to you from Your Lord with a sign (story of a bird ...} (Q 3:49) وَرَسُول¡ا إِلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائ¦يلَ أَنِّي قَدْ جِئْتُكُ¥ بِآيَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُ¥ْ ۖ

Allah gave him a Unique Responsibility of two books: Torah and Injeel

"I taught you writing, wisdom, the Torah, and the Injeel... (Q 5:110) وَإِذْ عَلَّمْت¥كَ الْكِتَاœَ وَالْحِك¨مَةَ وَالتَّو¨رَاةَ وَالْإِن–ِيلَ ۖ

Limited Mission of Jesus (pbuh)

Allah informed Jesus (as), "And We have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants." (Q 13:38)

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْ¦َا رُسُلًا مِّن قَبْلِكَ وَجَعَلْ¦َا لَهُمْ أَزْوَاج¡ا وَذُرِّي§َة

Abdullah Yusuf Ali commented, n1861, "All known prophets had wives and children except Isa (pbuh)... According to Christian sources his ministry was only 3 years. In other words, his mission was limited. He was not called upon to deal with complex problems of highly organized society or government.

Some also says his life was incomplete. How? No prophet had been a failure. They did what they were commanded to do and they lived their appointed lives on the earth. There is no failure on the part of Jesus (as).

Waiting for the Messiah, Christ

وَإِن مِّنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَاœِ إِلَّا لَيُؤْمِ¦َنَّ بِهِ قَبْلَ مَوْتِهِ ۖ

وَيَوْمَ الْقِيَا¥َةِ يَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ¥ْ شَهِيدًا

"And there is none from the People of the Book but must believe in Jesus before his death. And (if they didn't believe in him) on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them." (Q 4:159)

Jesus (as) died and he is not coming back. The People of the Books lost their opportunity. Now they have to believe in Muhammad (saw), the Last Prophet of Allah. The Muslims should understand that we are believers in Muhammad (saw), the last Prophet of Allah (Quran 33:40). After the passing of Prophet Muhammad (saw), it is our responsibility to advance his Mission, establish Justice, struggle to free the oppressed, stand against Munker, wrong/evil, injustice, oppression, and stand for the working people.

False Signs of End of the World

  1. Appearance of "Dajjaal"

    The word "Dajjaal" means deceiver and liar, and anti-Christ. A river near Basra is called Dajlah, beacuase the people of Basra deceived Imam Hussain, the Grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
    Dr. Kaukab Siddique wrote a book with the title: Dajjal Superpowr USA

  2. Second coming of Isa (as)

    Isa (as)will come back to live his remaining life on this earth, as a follower of the Prophet Muhammad (as)

  3. Armagedden

  4. Isa (as) will kill the Dajjaal

  5. Everyone will become Muslim

  6. Establishment of the Islamic world order in place of the Dajjaali order, like New World Order of George H. Bush (Senior)

These are all false signs, wishful thinking, and escape from our own responsibilities today and in the future as long as we live.

End of the World

Allah has not given this knowledge to anyone. Allah alone knows the End of the World:

'People ask you (O Muhammad) concerning the (Last) Hour? Tell (them), "The Knowledge of it is only known to Allah. And what may make you perceive? Perhaps the Hour is near!"' (Q 33:63) يَسْأَلُ£َ النَّاسُ عَنِ السَّاعَِ ۖ قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَ› عِندَ اللَّـهِ ۚ

وَمَا يُدْرِيك¤ لَعَلَّ السَّاعََ تَكُونُ قَرِيبًا

Sign of the Last Hour

Once Jibril (as) came in the form of a man to teach Muslims about their Deen... He asked the Prophet (saw), "Inform me about the Hour?" The Messenger (saw) replied, "About that the one questioned knows no more than the questioner." So he (Jibril) said, "Well, inform me about the signs thereof (i.e. of its coming)." Rasol Allah (saw) told him, "They are that: 'The mother will give birth to her on mistress (there will no respect left even for mothers), you will see the barefooted ones, the naked, the destitute, the herdsmen of the sheep (competing with each other) in raising lofty buildings." (Hadith narrated by Umar bin al-Khattab (ra) in the Book of Muslim)

Allah describes the Physics of End of the world in Quran in extraordinary details; however, no mention of return of Isa (as) or Dajjal

Problems with False Signs

False Signs of the Last Hour such as the Return of Jesus (as) have created many problems. It left a vacuum like an empty chair or throne. And many people has claimed to be a Mahdi or Christ to fill this vacant seat. Some examples like Ghulam Ahmad in Indo-Pakistan and claimed to be the awaited Isa Malood, Jesus Reborn.

It has given a false sense and people waiting for Messiah to change their conditions instead of taking responsibility. Oppressive regimes got away with murder. Jews are still waiting for the Messiah. Even Quran warned them that Jesus the Messiah came, they should have believed in him. Now they should believe in Prophet Muhammad (saw).
