Brothers and Sisters
as I lay Salam
the bond are the link between
versions of Islam.
The third, Islam being the true version of
though in its roots, Judaism was Islam
as in the roots of Christianity, as Jesus taught it, that was Islam.
Jesus represents the link between all three
he is known as the Messiah.
And the Jews, were waiting for the Messiah to come.
But when he came, he didn't come
expected him to come, or as they wanted him to come.
And so they rejected him
and said he had not yet come.
And until today, the Orthodox Jews are waiting for the coming of the Messiah.
The modern Jews, liberal Jews, they have reinterpreted what Messiah means
to be something other than
a human being,
believe that the Messiah came, Jesus,
the son of Mary,
and they believe that He died
for their sins
and was taken up into heaven.
And that he currently sits on the right hand of God.
This is their beliefs
and to complicate their belief,
they claim that he
was the son of God.
And to further complicated, they claim that he was God.
How he ended up sitting beside himself
is difficult to imagine or explain.
But that is their belief.
And they believe that he will return
he will return
and rule the world
As the Jews believe that the Messiah was to come and rule the world from Jerusalem
believe that Jesus was the Messiah, he came
but he was not killed. He didn't die.
They thought they killed him.
But Allah lifted him up.
And we believe he will also return.
So there is this
convergence of views concerning the second coming of Christ.
The Messiah, for the Jews is the first coming.
Christians it's the second and for Muslims. It's also the second
we have those who denied the Second Coming of Jesus.
Because they said, Muhammad
Sallallahu sallam was the last messenger.
So if we accept that Jesus is coming, then he is after Muhammad.
So it's a difficult thing to wrap your head around. So the easy ways to say he's not coming.
Or, as Mirza Ghulam Ahmed said, It's me
the truth of the matter, of course, is that as Muslims,
we believe, he will return.
But he is not a new messenger of God.
Allah has him return
and complete his life cycle and die on the earth.
And the issues concerning him will end at that point, he is one of the signs of the Last Day,
the end of this world.
And before his coming, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam informed us of
the coming of the mahadi.
One from is Omar
what was referred to as Rome they represented the West
Western civilization, its forces
Christians referred to as Armageddon.
And those forces from the West would be defeated
under the leadership of the Mati
during his reign
the world would be filled with justice,
he would establish justice across the world.
the conclusion of his reign,
referred to as Armageddon
the de Jarl will come
and mercy at the job, the Antichrist
the Antichrist was found in Christian literature
and the books of the New Testament.
However, their description of him
it leaves room for much speculation.
since Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was the last messenger of Allah.
And he informed us
that the greatest trial that humankind would face was that of the Antichrist Mercia at the job.
And Jesus spoke of is coming, and so did Moses and the prophets before all the prophets inform their followers of His coming
But since Muhammad sallahu wa sallam was to be the last
the description which he gave him, the Jarl
was crystal clear.
It leaves no room for somebody to come along and say
or it's the television
or the internet.
We do have people saying that
but they don't know the deen. There are people ignorant of the
texts, the authentic texts of the deen
which make it very clear as to who
the child is.
Even in the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
there was an individual
by the name of Eben Sajjad
who was suspected to have been the dead John.
And the prophets I send them went with Omar Amnon kebab,
to visit him to see him.
And he had told him
to say, the Shahada.
youth he was a small boy at the time.
responded by telling the Prophet SAW Salem to say
he was the messenger of Allah.
And over him Nakata, of course, immediately wanted to decapitate him, just finish him off right then and there.
But the Prophet SAW Salem stopped him.
He said, If he was who you think he is, he wouldn't be able to kill him.
And if he's not,
then it would be bad for
Where the Prophet SAW Salem was having his companions kill children.
the very fact that this youth
was considered, possibly to be the journal we know then, that it is a human being.
And there are narrations in which the Prophet SAW salem said.
I will aside and Cordray quoted
the dead child would be a Jew.
politically today, to say that
you can be accused of, you know, anti semitism and all these kinds of things, but this is the fact of our religion. And because he is a Jew doesn't mean
anything and everything connected to Judaism is evil. It's not saying that it just says, as a process Elon related that he was a Jew.
And he described him
as being blind in one eye.
Is here would be currently, his feet set apart
a human being.
So any claim that he is other than
a human being is false.
arose, which rejected the Roman Catholic Church and broke away
in an attempt to return
to what they thought were the teachings of Jesus. True Christianity, they came to be known as the Protestants.
They said, the Antichrist mercy had the jewel was the Pope.
there are a many among them who say that
the Antichrist is the Pope.
Of course, others
found it easier to say
And that is what is being propagated in the west today, amongst the fundamentalist Christians that
Muslims are the Antichrist, because we are against the idea that Jesus is God.
And we are convincing people.
People are leaving Christianity and accepting that Jesus is not God.
So it means we're anti Christ, Jesus Christ.
So make sense in their
So the dead John,
who would appear
at the end of or towards the end of the rule of the Mahdi
would be supported by forces he would appear from his for him
in what is now Iran.
And he would gather forces behind him
and do battle with the forces of the mighty
defeating them consistently, until they were herded into Jerusalem
where they were besieged.
Or they will be deceived, besieged.
So these are facts of what would take place.
Clear. They're not confused. They're straightforward.
we have people today
claim that the jaal already came or present amongst us, etc, now
has already started his rule etc.
But Prophet Muhammad wa sallam gave us certain signs that would take place before the coming of the John one, the mighty
and the coming of the man
who he described as having the same name
And having the same name, his father's having the same name. So it'd be Mohammed bin Abdullah
and described him as having a broad forehead and a
high nose knows without a bridge.
He described him in this way
and spoke about the fact
that he would lead the Muslim forces and defeat that of the West,
Western civilization. We know it hasn't taken taking place. So any talk of the child being present now and acting in the world has got to be false. That has not taken place. Also, Prophet Muhammad wa sallam informed us that there wouldn't be three years of famine prior to the appearance of that job. In the first year.
Drought, no rain would take place over 1/3 of the earth.
We have drought now.
And Somalia, Ethiopia. It's 1/3 of the earth.
and the second year, two thirds of
The Earth, no rain
in the third year, no rain anywhere on the face of the earth.
We haven't experienced that.
So we know that the time has not yet come.
But we have to be mentally prepared for such a time.
We should not treat the information which the Prophet SAW Salem gave us lightly.
Our children know all the enemies of Superman, Green Lantern,
this man and that man, Spider Man, they know all the enemies who are the bad guys, by name, what they look like the descriptions, everything but you ask them about the job, they have no idea.
We have done our children a disservice.
They should know that jahl better than they know the enemies of the superheroes who are fictitious. They don't exist. There are only in comic books, cartoons. Well, they made movies have them now too.
But in the minds of the children, they're very real.
But at the jaal is unreal.
We have done our children a disservice
they should know about a digit.
So I asked her last month Allah
to bring us back on the correct track.
That we don't neglect the education of our children as our education was neglected
that we follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam
in everything that he instructed us,
whether it be small or whether it be big.
is the example for us he has left the way
The Prophet SAW Solomon said
know that the time of the Jarl is near
when the Imams no longer speak about it
from the members
at least once a year,
I tried to speak about it
it is useful knowledge. Otherwise Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah would not have told us about it.
Because the trial of the journal as he said was the worst that human beings would face.
A time when there is drought all over the earth.
And here comes an individual
who will command the skies to rain and it will rain
when people are
no food to eat
and he will have with him a mountain of bread
and a mountain of meat
you want to eat
then believe in him.
That's what he will command the people to do.
The Prophet SAW Selim had said that there would be after him a number of that jamun
all of them claiming that they were messengers of Allah.
We know about them Mirza Ghulam Muhammad
Musa Lama in the past and others
But almasi had the Jarl is not going to claim that he is a messenger of Allah, He is going to claim that He is Allah.
And if you are starving to death
and you are given the option, accept that he is the messenger of Allah, and you can eat you can survive,
reject and die. What are you going to do?
This is the trial,
life and death is involved.
And the Prophet SAW salem said that he would cut a man in half,
walk between the haves and tell the house to come back together again, and the man would come back living.
He would tell another, and others.
If I bring your parents back to life, will you believe that I am God?
And if we believe that only God can bring life back to the dead,
it's conceivable that we'll say sure.
If you can bring my parents back, my dead parents back to life, then
I will accept your God.
And he will command
to from the jinn.
Who were the careens
possibly of that grandfather and grandfather, your mother and your dead dad who died
and they would appear become visible in the form of your father and your mother. Speaking as they spoke, looking as they looked, telling you believe in Him, My dear son,
believe in Him,
for He is God, Allah.
How will we be at that time?
What is will be the state of our faith.
If we are ignorant of all of these happenings at that time, we will not survive.
This is why Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam gave us this information
to renew our faith for that time to come.
to constantly be engaged in renewing our faith, because faith goes up and it goes down
so that we don't get caught. At that time when it is down. That Jol appears, and we end up as one of his followers.
So the job will
the forces of the mighty in Jerusalem.
The time for Fajr prayer will come.
And Prophet Jesus will descend
where wearing two white robes and with his hands on the wings of angels as he descends.
they're a white minaret.
From there, he will go to Jerusalem
to join the fajr prayer.
And when he comes in the muddy step had stepped forward to make salah. He saw him or will see him and begins to step back to allow properties to lead the prayer.
But Prophet Isa will stop him and make him lead the prayer
it is a lost destiny that you would lead yourselves in prayer.
Your moms would be from among yourselves. And after the prayer
he will have the Gates of Jerusalem open the forces of the
JAL will burst in the forces with the mighty will engage them in battle. Prophet Isa will be in the middle, he will spot the Jarl the gel, the jaw will see him start to run, he will chase him, catch him and kill him with a spear, lifting the spear up afterwards showing the blood of at the job and confirming is defeated.
The job will be defeated by properties allays Salam
and following that,
as the forces that fought along with him etc, are jubilant. And
the word spread the defeat of the jungle
in that period,
Prophet Isa will be informed that Allah has released another people
another evil force
that has been attempting to enter into this world upon human beings for generations.
It's it will be the people known as
Alma George and
Alia George will not judge the Gog and Magog
1000s of years ago
the barrier which prevented them from over running the earth will come down
by Allah's permission,
and they will spread over the earth
and defeat all of the forces in their
And the law will inform Prophet Isa that the only safe place that you will be able to find is Mount tour.
Now there is Mount tour in Sinai in the Sinai and there's also a mount tour near Jerusalem, the two mountains carrying the same name
he would seek refuge there with the forces
that remained with him.
They would be besieged there
and it would seem that this was the end.
Because the garden the Magog
forces that come before them nothing can stop them. As Allah has informed properties
this affirms for us
in case people would fall back into the same
mistake of giving Prophet his
till they elevate him to be God again.
Allah shows the world
the vulnerability of properties
he cannot defeat them.
He killed the job.
But he isn't God
nor the Son of God.
So it is when there is no hope left.
the prophesied Salem described like the larva of the locusts that would find their way to the necks of the jaws of the Gog and Magog and bore into the next into their brains and kill them and they will just die like flies.
And that would be the
and Prophet Isa would rule the earth for some 40 years, completing his life
making Hajj promises and and described him making Hajj and also restoring
Islamic rule to the world again, Prophet Jesus ruling the world according to the Sharia
again, when people hear this
obsessed with ruling the world according to Shetty.
point their fingers. They raise objections. So much so that
22 states in the US out of their 52 states 22 of them
legally banned Sharia.
Of course, when the representatives of the states were asked, okay, so what is the Sharia that you're banning? They said we're banning suicide bombing, we're banning
Because in their mind, Shetty means suicide bombing, terrorism, ISIS, and whatever else. This is, this is Shediac.
They don't realize that praying five times a day, that's Sharia. So when you ban Sharia, you're saying Muslims will not be allowed to pray five times a day will not be allowed to fast in Ramadan, and so on and so forth.
sheer ignorance, this is the reality.
is the law of God, the law of Allah,
which is good for all times, all people in all places,
that is the reality, wherever Muslims are able to apply it, it is their duty to apply it.
Not to force it upon people.
As a minority in a country of non Muslims, you we have foolish Muslims, you know, calling for Sharia in the middle of Europe.
We can't apply it. Unless we are the majority.
And the majority agree, then we can apply it. If the majority don't agree even we're all Muslims, but the majority don't agree to apply Sharia to try to apply it is to unleash bloodshed in Oman.
Because Muslims will fight you.
They have to be educated. The OMA has to come to that understanding that the way that we deserve to govern ourselves is in accordance with the Sharia. That's what La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam means this is what it means.
So the story of the return of Isa is a reminder to us. That's why all of this should be taught to our children, they should know it.
All of the details, they should be able to recount it so they can record it to their children.
Because all of it addresses and feet and
speed speaks to the need for Muslims to understand the deen.
If we haven't understood it,
then we will be overcome.
We will fail.
We will fail our children will fail our families will fail our nations.
The only way for Muslims is to come back to Islam.
And to come back to Islam. It requires knowledge of Islam
not just the emotion
Of course we should be emotionally committed. But if all that drives us is emotion and we don't have knowledge that we can end up like ISIS,
in the name of Islam
that is the problem of emotion when it's not guided by
the teachings of Islam. So this is the way forward I asked Allah subhanaw taala, to bring us back to his religion,
and to forgive our past failings, and the failings of our relatives,
our families, our nations, I ask Allah to keep us firmly on this path of Islam.
To forgive our lot past ones or last ones, those who have died. Forgive them or Allah, forgive their sins, make their graves
gardens from Paradise, not pits from hell. And ask Allah to let us die to leave this world with our last breath, saying Ilaha illa Allah
