We know for absolute fact that Muhammad never asked for the Quran to be put together as a book in his life time. Go search all Islamic sources that you love to read. It was at least 20 years after Muhammad had died that the Quran was collated and put as one book. This is agreed by all Islamic sources. The question that many believers gloss over it is why Muhammad never asked to write the verses of the Quran into one book? How did we end up entrusting a nobody by the name of Zayd Ibn Thabit – to collate and organise the Quran. The answer if you dare open your eyes is that… Muhammad thought the world will end in his life time or very shortly after. We know this from the Hadith and Quran:
Anas reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying: I and the Last Hour have been sent like this and (he while doing it) joined the forefinger with the middle finger.
A’isha reported that when the desert Arabs came to Allable Messenger ﷺ they asked about the Last Hour as to when that would come. And he looked towards the youngest amongst them and said: If he lives he would not grow very old that he would find your Last Hour coming to you the would see you pass away) ” .
These hadiths are repeated in Multiple places!!
Even the Quran kept us guessing when it said ” …You never know, perhaps the Hour is near.” Quran 42:17
The Quran suggest the end of time is verses: 54:1, 53:57, 33:63, 43:66, 25:11, 6:31, 22:7, 30:12 and more!!
In verse 54:1, it says the split of the moon is a sign that the hour is near – That was 1400 years ago!!!
But why this tactic works? If you believe the world will end soon, you will not care if you die in a battle field, future plans are cancelled, and a cult like followers impressed with the certainty of end will gather.
Nowadays, Islamic scholars push this and other failed Hadith under the carpet. And invent alternative “signs of end of times” to frighten you. For 1400 years, each year they tell you “signs it is near”
