“And by the moon when it waxes full!
You will certainly pass from one state to another”
(Holy Quran 84 : 18, 19)
This blog contains around ten references/indications/interpretations from the Holy Quran and Ahadith about the near coming of Imam Mahdi AS as told by the scholars
We just have to connect the dots!
Methodology to Study the Hadith:
- Hadith should be authentic, preferably Sahih or at least Hassan
- Should not be in conflict with teachings of the Holy Quran
- Should not be taken in isolation
- Several ahadith may complement one another
There Will Be Injustice and Oppression
The Ahadith indicate that Imam Mahdi will come at a time when there will be oppression and injustice around the world,
And due to this there will be doom, gloom and depression spread around the world
And there will seem no one left to save them, no saviour left;
So there will be pessimism, hopelessness and despair.
And that is a very close picture of the present situation of the socio – economic – political conditions in many countries today.
In Palestine, Kashmir, Burma, Yemen, Ughyier, war – torn Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya. They have been waiting for a saviour since decades especially the first three.
And then economic oppression in countries like Pakistan, Egypt, Tunisia and others due to riba – induced inflation and corruption
And now slowly spreading around the world due to the Covid-19 lockdowns
Widespread depression is spread around the world especially among the young generation due to the lockdowns, joblessness and increasing drug abuse etc.
Recently #depression was the top twitter trend around the world
Around the world, people are losing hope in their political leaderships.
Hazrat Zubair ibn ‘Adi RA reported: We came to Anas ibn Malik, may Allah be pleased with him, and we complained to him of what we suffered from the ruler Al-Hajjaj. Anas said, “Be patient, for an era will not come upon but that what comes after is worse, until you meet your Lord. I heard it from your Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.”
Even in the west USA, UK and Europe and in India and Pakistan and even
In the Arab countries which used to be oil based powerful business hubs.
Here many believed Imran Khan is the last hope,
And I am telling them since many years that no; our last hope is in Allah Almighty :
He will send the final saviour Imam Mahdi AS who will bring back justice to the Earth as prophesied in this Hadith
In sha Allah. Ameen.
And Allah Almighty Knows best
There Will Be A Dispute Amongst You …
Many Ulema Kiraam and Islamic Scholars agree that this Khalifah is most likely the present Saudi King (Khalifah also meant to be a Muslim ruler).
Dr Israr Ahmad RA may have been close here :
We all know the wide differences among the princes as to who will be the next King. We know who changed the previous crown prince Naif and put MBS in his place.
Thus there is most likely going to be a great fight for Kingship as prophesied in this Hadith upon which Imam Mehdi will ’emerge’.
Then the army from Syria will come to fight against him but the earth will sink on their way to Madinah (the prophesied third sinking).
This will be taken as proof of the coming of the true Messiah, the true Imam Mahdi AS.
Mulkan Jabriyyan or Forced Kingships
Right now we are living in era of forced kingships
Whether it be today’s monarchies, democracies, communism or socialistic setups.
And will be followed again by Khilafah minhaj An Nubuwah (Khilafah on the methodology of the Prophet PBUH)
خلافہ منھاج النبوۃ
Brought by Imam Mahdi AS…
Forced Kingships and Establishments
The term Forceful Kingship in the Hadith beautifully describes the present day establishments of almost every country,
That enforce rulers over the people.
Even in democracies, people only cast their votes;
It is the establishment that “counts” them and bring their selected leader by hook or crook.
This is why we often get the complaint, even in ‘strong’ democracies like the USA, that the elections were rigged.
The leaders are forced or imposed on us as by the establishments or the deep state or the shadow governments (often in collaboration with the international establishment)

Meanwhile our struggle for revival of Khilafah will nonetheless continue in sha Allah….
Gog and Magog & the Second Zul Qarnain
Millions of people around the world are praying for another savior, another zhul qarnain
From قرن or era
People around the world are suffering from the different types of corruption فساد being committed by the Yajuj and Majuj of today
Genocide, severe oppression/persecution in Palestine, Kashmir, Syria, Myanmar, Yughur etc;
Famine, poverty, economic worries due to the economic corruption etc
They are waiting and praying to Allah Almighty to send another or the second Zhul Qarnain so that he perhaps may build another barrier between them or perhaps destroy them with the Help of Allah SWT.
Who will be that second Zhul Qarnain?
Some believe it may be Imam Mehdi AS
Described in detail here :
And all about their on – going corruption taking place
Economic / Financial Fasaad
Immorality, Indecency, feminism
And much more..

The Sea of Galilee
“Allah will send Gog and Magog, who will swarm down from every slope. The first of them will pass by the Lake of Tiberias (Sea of Galilee) and will drink what is in it, and the last of them will pass it and say: ‘There was once water here.’” (Sahih Muslim)
At present, the water threshold of the Sea of Galilee is extremely low. As of 2018, Israel is entering its sixth consecutive year of drought, and the Sea of Galilee is dangerously close to the “black line”, beyond which continuous pumping of water from it will likely cause irreversible damage to the water source.

Interpretation from the Holy Quran
“And by the moon when it waxes full! You will certainly pass from one state to another”
(Holy Quran 84 : 18, 19)
Here Dr. Israr Ahmad RA has interpreted this to be about the full moon that falls on the 14th night to mean the reformers (mujadideen), who are prophesied by the Holy Prophet to come in every century.
The concept is based on a hadith recorded narrated by Hazrat Abu Hurairah RA who mentioned that Prophet Muhammad PBUH said:
Allah will raise for this community at the end of every 100 years the one who will renovate its religion for it.—
Sunan Abu Dawood, Book 37: Kitab al-Malahim [Battles], Hadith Number 427 (Graded Sahih)
There is a general consensus that it signifies over a period of every 100 years Muslims will stray from the straight path. Many innovations (bidah) will enter the religion. Hence, Allah will sent someone who was brought up with the true understanding of the Quran and Sunnah.
This person will be a beacon for the people of the time.
More simply speaking it means Allah will send upon this ummah scholars or people of knowledge and guidance who will guide people back to the right path each time a majority out of them might deviate.
Note that these people don’t necessarily need to be the best of their time or end of the century; also there is rarely a consensus on a single scholar.
And he interprets from this verse that there will be 14 reformers and the 15th will be Imam Mahdi AS
Dr. Israr Ahmad here enlists the mujadideen (Islamic reformers) with detailed explanation of the last 14 hijri centuries.
“The First and Last Link of Khilafat by Dr Israr Ahmed” on YouTube:
For this Ummah is desperately in need of a supreme reformer. There are large differences among the scholars on large amounts of issues that neede to be redressed; and only a reformer sent by Allah Almighty seems to be able to redress them
Mahdi literally means ‘guide’; means he will guide towards all truth.
And Allah Almighty knows best
Allah Almighty’s Principles of Punishment
Surat No 32 : سورة السجدة – Ayat No 21 :
And we will surely let them taste the nearer punishment short of the greater punishment that perhaps they will repent.
Surat No 6 : سورة الأنعام – Ayat No 44
So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded,
We opened to them the doors of every [good] thing until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given,
We seized them suddenly, and they were [then] in despair.
Surat No 17 : سورة بنی اسراءیل – Ayat No 16
And when We intend to destroy a city,
We command its affluent but they defiantly disobey therein;
So the word comes into effect upon it, and We destroy it with [complete] destruction.
The String is About to Break & Its Beads About to Fall One By One
Many Ulema Kiraam and scholars are converging on the same point; reaching the same conclusion that:
تسبیح کے دانے گرنے کو ہیں.
Maulana Khalid Mahmood Abbasi in the video above
The Looming Threat of Nuclear War
It is reaching threshold; probably not reached yet but getting close.
Especially India – Pakistan, with the major threat of initiation from India.
Pakistan military is very often on red – alert these days as we all know
Trump did not start any war but he has set the stage for wars (and possibly nuclear war), just as we had predicted 4 years ago when he had won.
And in come back the war – mongering team (Clintons, Bush, Obama and now Biden)
This was probably the plan. They are all the same.
The time seems more ripe now due to the chaos caused by the bio-weaponised ‘pandemic’, with even their own country ‘severely’ affected and
Trump severely dividing the nation politically, racially and over Covid-19, an era ending with continuous growing rumors of a civil war, culminating (perhaps) in the capitol riots.
And to top it all, the monstrous economic collapse occurring, that may make 2008 look very microscopic;
All perfect recipes for an American spring, collapse of the US dollar, followed by nuclear armageddon
Even one of the top most Non-Muslim intellectuals Mr. Naom Chomsky has recently expressed his fears of the looming threat of nuclear war:
Any tactical mistake by one of the nuclear states, he states, could lead to a great catastrophe.
And that in Islamic Eschatology means Malhama tul Kubra and
Another indication from sahih ahadith of the coming of Imam Mahdi AS.
In one Hadith, the events seem to be given in chronological/sequential order in which they will occur. Following is this Hadith:
It was narrated that Hazrat Mu’adh bin Jabal (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said,
“Jerusalem will flourish when Yathrib (old name of modern day city of Madina, Saudi Arabia) is in ruins, and Yathrib will be in ruins when the Great War (‘Mal’hama’/Armageddon) occurs.
The Great War will occur when Constantinople is conquered, and Constantinople will be conquered when the ‘Dajjal’ appears.” Then, with his hand, he struck the thigh, or shoulder of the one to whom he was speaking, and said, “This is as true as you are here, or, as you are sitting here (meaning Mu’adh bin Jabal, RA).”
We may to have to wait another 4 years; unless yet another bioweapon attack may just be enough. This devil of a guy had warned us of the second wave of Covid – 19 and now he is warning us of this :
The Three Stages of Dajjal
This is from the interpretation of a lengthy hadith about Dajjal, the relevant portion is as follows:
“We said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, how long will he stay on earth?’ He said: ‘Forty days, one day like a year, one day like a month, one day like a week, and the rest of his days like your days.“
One day like a year : 1000 years of British Rule (Pax Britannica); one ‘heavenly’ year is equal to 1000 years of our time
One day like a month : (Pax Americana); Started somewhere around the 20th century when USA became the world ruler
Divide the 1000 / 12 months; So will last around 83 years
One day like a week : (Pax Judaica); will start somewhere in the 21st century.
Divide the month into around 4; So will last around 20 – 21 years
And we seem to find a change in currency with each world rule. Next we may see digital currency which has started :
Finally rest of his days will be like your days:
Finally Dajjal will appear physically on Earth, hence his remaining days (37 ?) will be like our days
We can clearly see that USA is on a rapid decline and thus the stage of Pax Americana is about to finish. This will be followed by wars (possibly Malhama: correlate with other Ahadith) and Pax Judaica..
We can clearly see Israel becoming the dominant nation with many Muslim countries recognizing and developing coordial relations with Israel and many others debating or secretly in touch…
Note : Exact years cannot be given due to several reasons including whether it should be solar years or lunar years

Blessed Be The Strangers
Hadith: Hazrat Abu Huraira RA reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Islam began as a something strange and it will return to being strange, so blessed are the strangers.”
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 145, Grade: Sahih
After Islam won the hearts and minds of the Arabs and subsequently spread throughout the world, the teachings of Islam were no longer viewed as strange at all. However, the Prophet PBUH warned us that days would come when Islam would return to being strange in society just as it began.
it will become strange before Imam Mehdi
As mentioned, the world will be filled with tyranny and injustice before him
Injustice or zulm or corruption of all types will be taking place on Earth.
Genocide, poverty, famine due to economic injustice, etc
Gharib has a wide meaning
Strange, means few or very less in percentage
It is said according to another hadith that 999/1000 will have unknowingly joined directly or indirectly with Yajuj and Majuj
Meaning adopted their way of life
Or very few people will be following perfectly the true Deen of Islam
Socially, economically etc
So such people will be looked upon as ‘strangers’ or talking strangely
Like the example of few strange people who talk against paper money
And Allah knows best
People say we are spreading pessimism. is this being pessimistic or being realistic?
For those asking what is next or what is any other hope for Pakistan after Imran Khan, same can be asked:
What is the hope for Syria?
What is the hope for Yemen?
What is the hope for Myanmar/Burma?
What is the hope for Palestine?
What is the hope for Kashmiris when this government has completely thrown them to Indian dogs?
What is the hope for Afghanistan and Muslims in Uyghur, China, India etc?
What is the hope for Egypt, Libya, etc?
What is the hope of hundreds of thousands of people living below the poverty line around the world including Venezuela, USA and in Europe etc etcand especially suffering during the lockdowns??
History has seen that when an Ummah goes far away from teachings of Allah Almighty and many doubts and controversies arise in His deen, He sends His Prophet PBUH;
BUT since there is to be no Prophet after Prophet Muhammad PBUH, He will send Imam Mehdi and Hazrat Eesa as guides but also as ummati of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
Scholars of all three major world religions are repeatedly predicting the closeness according to their Holy Scriptures of Armageddon (Great war) and Anti-Christ (Dajjal) who will oppose the Mehdi and Eesa AS.
According to Ahadith 999/1000 people will be killed in this war, which makes it most likely a nuclear war. And USA and Russia are all ready for such a great war. Just a trigger is needed like another 9/11 like false flag attack.
Its just that many Muslims don’t believe that such events are going to be held so soon; they still believe that such events will occur hundred or more years later.
This question has been put by disbelievers many times as mentioned in the Holy Quran:
“Still˺ they ask ˹the believers˺, “When will this threat come to pass, if what you say is true?” (Holy Quran 67 : 25)
Another basic principle of Allah Almighty is that he Hears the cries of the oppressed and responds to their cries of help. Oppressed pious people of Palestine, Kashmir, Yemen, Syria, Burma etc have been earnestly praying to Allah for help for so so many years now.
No Muslim army has come to their help. So ultimately Allah will send help through Imam Mehdi very very soon in sha Allah according to His principle.
In and after the great war, people of Gog and Magog and Dajjal will be killed, Hindus will be defeated in Ghazwa Hind and Qustuntunia will also be conquered. And finally peace will prevail on the Earth once more in sha Allah.
And Allah knows best..
Scholars, Intellectuals on Imam Mahdi
Following are some scholars and intellectuals who believe or have indicated in their writings / lectures that the time of Imam Mehdi or Malhama tul Kubra (Armageddon) is very near :
Dr Israr Ahmed marhoom
Sheikh Imran Hosein
Mr. Orya Maqbool Jan
Mr. Zaid Hamid Zaman
Sheikh Yasir Qadhi
Sheikh Dr Zakir Naik
Many Scholars of Ahli Tasheea
and many others
And even many non – Muslims including Christians and Jews, priests and Rabbis, who believe that the Armageddon is very near.
How much near?
This cannot be answered precisely; maybe within 10 – 15 years ?
And Allah know best
Islam will Ultimately Prevail
There is an indication in the Holy Quran that Islam will prevail over all religions in the Holy Quran;
“He is the One Who has sent His Messenger with ˹true˺ guidance and the Deen of truth, making it prevail over all others, even to the dismay of the polytheists.” (Holy Quran 9 : 33)
And other similar verses. Islam is a Deen, a complete way of life.
And from several Ahadith concerning Imam Mehdi AS
“….. He will fill the world with fairness and justice just as it will be filled with tyranny and injustice…” as mentioned above.
Importance of Islamic Eschatology
In the End Times, one should try to correlate, if possible, social, political and other events with Islamic Eschatology,
vis-a-vis Yajuj and Majuj, the coming of Imam Mehdi and Dajjal, expected occurrence of Malhama tul Kubra (Armageddon) etc.
There are probably other signs mentioned in my blogs on Islamic Eschatology or told by other scholars (like people becoming materialistic) and other signs may come soon like Istanbul (Qustuntunia) will be seized from Muslims of Turkey again
If one doesn’t believe in his near coming, that is fine (but belief in his coming is necessary)
The fact that almost all the minor signs of the End Times mentioned in the Ahadith have appeared itself is an indication of his near coming
And at the end one should always mention Allah Almighty the All-knowing knows best as I do at the end of my blogs.
And wait, indeed, we are waiting.” (Holy Quran : 11 : 122)
And Allah Almighty knows best!
