I have discussed the other tactics, so today I want to focus on Prophecies…and how we Muslims have thought “just this one left and the end of time will happen”
The Muslim conquest of Jerusalem (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4: book 53: 401)
>> Done in 1187 – people believed it is now the end of time nothing happened.
Naked, destitute, barefoot shepherds will compete in building tall buildings (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1: book 2: 47)
>> In the 1960‘s they referred to USA as having the first sky scrapers buildings on naked Indian American land – nothing happened.
Wine (intoxicants, alcohol) will be drunk in great quantities (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1: book 3: 80)
This has applied to every generation. If anything, people now drink zero alcohol and there is far less drinking than the 1970‘s and nothing happened.
Zina will become widespread (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1: book 3: 80)
This has applied to every generation that said – oh look now there is lots of Zina – nothing happened.
The Euphrates will reveal a treasure of gold, and many will die fighting over it, each one hoping to be the one who gains the treasure (Sahih Muslim, Book 041: 6918)
The Hadith talks about mountain of gold and that gold will become worthless, read it! The Euphrates has dried like never before and no mountain of gold was found and gold is still very expensive metal – nothing happened.
The Muslim conquest of Rome (Sahih Muslim, Book 041: 6721)
Like many of the previous Hadith, people focused on one thing and one thing only believing that will be the end of time that will bring about the Mahdi, but nothing happened. So scholars have to dig to find something else to explain it. For example, there is another Hadith that says “only when the whole world becomes Muslims” does the end of time come.
Even if that happens, they will go back to the first ones about Zina and drink and say when the world is not all Muslims!! It is a hamster wheel
What about the failed Prophecies? Coming up in my next post. 😉😉😉
