The system of the antichrist that rules the world, seeks to deceive Christians with a false idea of Hazrat Mahdi (peace be upon him). It tries to misrepresent to the Christian world all the excellent characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), the holy personage awaited in the End Times; it portrays the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), one of peace and security, entirely differently to Christians. Because of this vile trick of satan’s, some of the Christian world misinterpret and are wrongly acquainted with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), who will bring love, peace, justice and security to the whole world.
The fact is that THIS IS A VILE TRICK OF SATAN’S.
It is the antichrist, otherwise known as the dajjal, who will perpetrate all the barbaric measures that the Christian world will be indoctrinated with as a result of this trickery, and that will be falsely ascribed to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). THIS SAVAGE AND ANARCHISTIC IDEA INTENDED TO RUTHLESSLY SLAUGHTER PEOPLE AND WIPE OUT ONE-THIRD OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION BELONGS TO THE ANTICHRIST. This idea of the antichrist IS BEING DRAWN UP WITH THE AIM OF SLAUGHTERING ONE-THIRD OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION, APPROXIMATELY 2 BILLION 233 MILLION PEOPLE, during the time of the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). THIS WILL BE THE WORST MASSACRE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN THE ANTICHRIST to espouse such a slaughter. This bloody murderer whom Christians are so wrongly awaiting, IS CLEARLY THE ANTICHRIST.
Assuming that Muslims also espouse this perverted idea, that means the slaughter of another 2 billion 233 million people. And assuming that Jews support it, too, this means another 2 billion 233 million people. This means that NOBODY IN THE WORLD, WITH ITS POPULATION OF 7 MILLION, WILL BE LEFT ALIVE. The antichrist wants and is anticipating this savage massacre. It is a matter of the greatest urgency for sincere Christians to see this ruse of satan’s and the terrible nature of this horrible idea.
In addition, some Christians claim that this slaughter will take place under the command of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and, Allah is beyond this, in Allah’s name. They even spout nonsense to the effect that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will use nuclear weapons. It is indisputably a terrible slander to depict such a gentle prophet as Jesus as a prophet who resorts to violence. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is an excellent and virtuous prophet who, together with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), will bring mercy, beauty, peace and love to the whole world. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will teach the world love and affection. And all mankind will soon witness this. It is a terrible slander to mention the name of this holy prophet in the context of such savagery.
In the hadith revealed by our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), it is mentioned that through the Prophet Jesus’s descent, the peace and security will pravail the Earth; war, murder and enmity will come to an end.
I swear that Jesus (pbuh), son of Mary will descend as a just ruler... And all HOSTILITIES, QUARRELS, ENVY WILL ABSOLUTELY VANISH... (Death – Doomsday – Hereafter, p. 498)
Jesus (pbuh), son of Mary will be a just judge and a just ruler,...abolish the jizya (from the non-Muslims), FILL THE EARTH WITH PEACE just as the water fills the pot. There will also be unity in religion and noone other than Allah will be worshipped anymore. (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/334)
The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) exists in my community as a just ruler... ALL HOSTILITY AND HATRED VANISH... Earth becomes like a silver plate and grows the plants in abundance just like in the time of the Prophet Adam (pbuh) ... (Death – Doomsday – Hereafter, p. 496)
EARTH WILL BE FILLED WITH PEACE just like water fills the pot. NO HOSTILITY WILL REMAIN AND ALL HOSTILITIES, QUARRELS, ENVY WILL ABSOLUTELY VANISH. (Sahih Muslim, 1/136)
Then he will live for 40 years. Noone will die at his time. One will call on to his animals (to be out at grass); they will go and although they pass through the crop not even an anther they will taste. Snakes and scorpions will not harm anyone. Beasts will stand before the doors and will not harm anyone... (Imam Suyuti, Portents of Doomsday, Death and Resurrection, p. 1699, p 184)
ENMITY AND GRUDGE among people will disappear. Scorpions and snakes will be without poison; even a child will play with a snake with bare hands without getting a snakebite. A girl will try to drive a lion but that lion will not touch her. A wolf will remain among sheep as if it were a shepherd dog. As a bowl fills with water, the Earth will fill with the unity of religion. People will worship no being other than Allah. NOTHING IN THE NAME OF WARS, STRIFE WILL REMAIN...The Earth will be like a silver table. It will give off its plantations as it were in the time of Prophet Adam (pbuh). A bunch of grapes will suffice a private. A group of people will be full with a single pomegranate. The price of an ox will be that much and a horse will be purchased in return for a dirham.
“The Messenger of Allah! Why will a horse be so cheap?”
“BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO WAR, PEOPLE WILL NOT NEED IT MUCH!”
“Why will an ox will be so expensive?”
“Because the entire Earth will be planted, it will be of great demand...”(Ibn Majah reported a similar one from Umama; Great Hadith Collection, Rudani, Volume 5, p. 370-371-372)
Jesus (as) remains among the people as a just judge, an absolute judicious imam (religious leader) – ruler... ALL ENMITIES, GRUDGE DISAPPEAR, the poison of each poisonous animal is drawn. Furthermore, a child puts his hand in the mouth of a snake but that snake does not give harm to it. A girl annoys a lion while caressing it but that lion does not give harm to the girl. A wolf becomes like a shepherd dog among a sheep herd. THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH PEACE AND SECURITY AS IF A BOWL IS FILLED WITH WATER. (At that time) a single word (the word of tawhid) remains and people worship only Allah. Warriors LEAVE THEIR WEIGHT (THAT IS THEIR ARMS, WEAPONS ETC.) (Death, Doomsday, the Hereafter, p.496-497)
(Jesus (pbuh)) will then live for forty years. AT HIS TIME NO ONE WILL DIE. A person will tell his sheep and animals to go and graze, they will go and although they will pass through crops, they will take not a single ear of grain into their mouths. Snakes and scorpions will not give harm to anyone. Predatory animals will lie at people’s doorsteps but they will not give harm to anyone. A person will take a scale of wheat and plant it [in a field] without ox and catapult, but he will still take seven hundred scales of wheat in return. (Imam Suyuti, Portents of Doomsday, Death and Resurrection, p. 184)
“For seven years NO ONE WILL BE ENEMIES TO ONE ANOTHER.” (264- Ibn Manda, a.e II 958-9, el-Mukhaddas, a.E. Vr. 136-a 137-b)
In his (Jesus’ (pbuh)) time soil brings out its treasures in its depths. People do not demand any possessions. Envy and grudge disappear. Allah clears off the poison of each poisonous being. Thus children play with snakes and scorpions, but they are not harmed. Wolves do not give harm to sheep. PEOPLE DO NOT KILL ONE ANOTHER. PEACE DOMINATES THE EARTH. Soil gives plenty of crops as it were in its initial days. (265- see. Musnad, II, 409, 437; al-Safarini, Lavami, II 95) (Dr. Zeki Sarıtoprak, Jesus’ Descend from the Point of Islam, Cağlayan Press, Izmir, 1997, p.96)
THERE WILL BE NO PLACE FOR GRUDGE AND ENMITY AMONG PEOPLE since the reasons disappeared... (Signs of the Doomsday, pp. 242-243)
“Jesus (pbuh), son of Mary, will descend no matter what.”... “ENMITY, GETTING CROSS WITH EACH OTHER AND JEALOUSY WILL BE REMOVED.” (Abu Huraira (ra), Great Hadith Collection, Rudani, Vol. 5, p. 379)
Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is also described very clearly, with all his attributes, in the hadith narrated from our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace). And one of the most important characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as related in these hadith is that HE WILL SHED NO BLOOD, AND WILL NOT WAKEN THE SLEEPER:
People will seek refuge in 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.1
[Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will follow the way of the Prophet. HE WILL NOT WAKE UP A SLEEPING PERSON OR SHED BLOOD.2
HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL BE SO COMPASSIONATE THAT NO ONE WILL BE WOKEN UP FROM THEIR SLEEP OR HAVE A BLEEDING NOSE.3
Those who swear allegiance to him [Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] will swear between the rock and the pillar (by the Kaaba). HE WILL NOT WAKEN THE SLEEPER, AND HE WILL SPILL NO BLOOD.4
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), WAR WILL COME TO AN END AND ARMIES WILL ABANDON THEIR WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT:
War will lay down its burden (arms and the like).5
The warriors will abandon their weight [weapons and kits].6
All grudges and mutual hatred will be lifted (removed)... Earth will be filled with peace, just as a vessel is filled with water; the word will become one [i.e., there will be only one religion], and only Allah will be worshiped; the battle will put down its weapons [i.e., come to an end].7
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), ENMITY, CONFLICT AND WAR WILL COME TO AN END.
There will be no enmity between anyone. And all enmity, quarrels and disputes will surely disappear.8
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). THE WORLD WILL BE FILLED WITH JUSTICE:
HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH)] WILL FILL THE WORLD, once filled with oppression, WITH JUSTICE instead.9
The Mahdi is one of my people, and HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH TRUTH AND JUSTICE, just as it was once filled with cruelty and torture.10
The Qur’an reveals how our Lord calls people to peace:
Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and He guides whom He wills to a straight path. (Surah Yunus, 25)
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), THE WORLD WILL BE FILLED WITH JUSTICE.
[In Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) time] ALL GRUDGES AND MUTUAL HATRED WILL BE LIFTED (REMOVED), the sting of every stinging insect will be removed until a baby will insert his or her finger in snake's mouth and not be harmed, and the wolf will be like the dog among the sheep [safeguarding them]. EARTH WILL BE FILLED WITH PEACE, just as a vessel is filled with water; the word will become one [i.e., there will be only one religion], and only Allah will be worshiped; the battle will put down its weapons [i.e., come to an end].11
... In his [Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh)] day the sheep will graze with the wolf, and children will play with snakes...12
The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will come to stop the bloodshed and to put an end to anarchy and terror. It is the ANTICHRIST who will commit all the slaughter, oppression and wars. His shedding blood or planning to do so is the clearest proof that this person is not the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) or Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Satan is trying to deceive immaculate Christians along those lines and to oblige them to set up in opposition to Muslims who love and fear Allah. It is clear that this ugly plan of satan’s has been specially designed to create division among believers. Christians must see the deception going on here. Sincere Christians are wasting time by attaching credence to this deception of satan’s and turning against those engaged in the intellectual struggle against irreligion, true believers. The fact is that all the revealed religions sent down by Allah have brought with them love, brotherhood and moral virtue. It is obvious that nobody who loves and fears Allah can be a party to such a slaughter. Only the antichrist can do that. As a result, this who perverted plan belongs to the antichrist. Sincere Christians must immediately become aware of this and waste no time in the intellectual struggle against irreligion in the End Times in which we are living in.
