Surah 43.61

61. And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way.
62. Let not the Evil One hinder you: for he is to you an enemy avowed.
63. When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: “Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) on which ye dispute: therefore fear Allah and obey me.
64.”For Allah, He is my Lord and your Lord: so worship ye Him: this is a Straight Way.”
65. But sects from among themselves fell into disagreement: then woe to the wrong-doers, from the Penalty of a Grievous Day!
66. Do they only wait for the Hour - that it should come on them all of a sudden, while they perceive not?
67. Friends on that day will be foes, one to another,- except the Righteous.
68. My devotees! no fear shall be on you that Day, nor shall ye grieve,-
69. (Being) those who have believed in Our Signs and bowed (their wills to Ours) in Islam.
70. Enter ye the Garden, ye and your wives, in (beauty and) rejoicing.
71. To them will be passed round, dishes and goblets of gold: there will be there all that the souls could desire, all that their ayes could delight in: and ye shall abide therein (for eye).
72. Such will be the Garden of which ye are made heirs for your (good) deeds (in life).
73. Ye shall have therein abundance of fruit, from which ye shall have satisfaction.

"Many portents revealed in the Qur'n and the Prophetic hadiths, as well as various statements made by Islamic scholars, indicate that Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) return is drawing nigh. In addition, the Bible contains information about the period before Doomsday and Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) second coming. All of the events related in these sources indicate this blessed event's nearness.

SIGNS OF THE LAST DAY

What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive? (Qur'n, 47:18)

As the above verse indicates, God has revealed some of Doomsday's signs in the Qur'n. In Surat az-Zukhruf 43:61, God informs us that“He [Jesus] is a Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it...”

STATEMENTS IN THE TORAH AND THE BIBLE

So far, we have only looked at the Islamic sources, which contain a great deal of information about the End Times. No matter how corrupted their texts may be, however, the Torah and the Bible still contain some good news about Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) return. Even if we cannot be completely sure of their accuracy, it is useful to bear in mind those that are compatible with the Qur'n and the prophetic hadiths, for there is a strong likelihood that all such statements that are compatible with those in the Islamic sources have kept their original form.

The name of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) does not appear in the Old Testament, although we are told that a savior, a Messiah, will come from the line of Prophet David (pbuh). The Jews refused to accept that Prophet Jesus (pbuh) was sent to the Children of Israel, and so rejected him. Thus, they are still waiting for their"Messiah-savior" to come. Moreover, the Old Testament also contains some references to the End Times.

The New Testament, on the other hand, contains a great many statements on these subjects, especially of the second coming of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and its signs. These statements describe the natural events that will mark the times before and after his second coming. Most of the portents are set out in some detail in the prophetic hadiths as coming about in our day in a more striking manner than in any earlier time. It is important to realize that not just one or two of the signs are appearing in our day, but that just about all of them, one after the other, are doing so. Thus we can say, based particularly on Islamic sources but also on the Old Testament and the New Testament, that we are living in the End Times.”

Note: According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary sign means“A discernible indication of what is not itself directly perceptible. Sign applies to any indication to be perceived by the senses or the reason.”Thus Surat az-Zukhruf 43:61 indicates that the Resurrection, which is already taking place, is not perceptible to most humans. The only way the commencement of the Resurrection can be perceived is either by the senses (feeling the Nafas al Rachman, the breath of the Merciful i.e., Winds of Qiyamah flowing from the body - especially the hands, top of head and legs) or by reason (confirming with heart, mind and soul the declaration of the General Resurrection (Al-Qiyamah) to all humankind), or far better by both sense and reason. That is exactly why the Holy Qur'n warns that most humans will be unaware that is the Resurrection is taking place (surah 30:55-60 Al Rum), and that includes most Muslims!

So what is the Ummah awaiting but for the Hour of Doomsday to come upon them suddenly? The Signs that the End is approaching have already come. What good will the Reminder that Al-Qiyamah—Al Qadr (Night Of Power And Fate)—has begun be for them when Doomsday—Al Qari'h (The Day Of Noise And Clamour)—does suddenly arrive? What good will be the grace period of His Mercy, Al Qadr (Night Of Power And Fate), be when His Wrath, Al Qari'h (The Day Of Noise And Clamour), suddenly descends on all mankind? Do they only wait for the Hour ofAl Qari'h (The Day Of Noise And Clamour) that it should come on them all of a sudden, while they perceive not Al Qadr (Night Of Power And Fate)?

The prophecies of the Holy Koran are devastatingly precise and will run their course! Those Muslims reading these lines are forewarned, in no uncertain terms, that those disputing the Great News that the Resurrection has commenced will soon find that out when they stand before Allah (SWT) and be judged for their disbelief (since they are literally waiting for 'graves to open up', a centuries-old misconception):

Concerning what are they disputing?
Concerning the Great News. [5889]
About which they cannot agree.
Verily, they shall soon (come to) know!
Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know!

surah 78:1-5 Al Naba' (The Great News)

"5889. Great News: usually understood to mean the News or Message of the Resurrection.”

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation,
1989.

But to all who believe, no fear shall be on you that Day, nor shall ye grieve, being among those who have believed in His Signs and bowed their wills in submission to the Great News of the Resurrection! Jesus indeed is the Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it as we are indeed living in the End Times.



THE GLAD TIDINGS OF THE MESSIAH
INTRODUCTION

Prophets and Messengers have been sent to all nations throughout history to teach the core concepts of the same religion: to believe in the one and only God, to abandon idolatry, to live and do good deeds only for God's good pleasure, to have faith in God and to seek His help alone, and to be virtuous. The principles of faith that they have taught to humanity have always been the same, despite some slight differences in practical matters according to place and time. For instance, Jesus (peace be upon him)1 did not bring a different religion, and the religion revealed to Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (may God bless him and grant him peace), the last prophet, is the same. (In other words, the Torah sent to Moses and the Gospel sent to Jesus as guiding lights for people, have been tampered over time and so are no longer true to their respective original revelations.2) In one verse, God tells believers not to distinguish between revealed religions:

Say: “We believe in God and what has been sent down to us; what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes; and what Moses, Jesus, and all the Prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him.” (Qur'n, 3:84)

Another verse reveals the following:

He has laid down the same religion for you as He enjoined on Noah, that which We have revealed to you and which We enjoined upon Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: “Establish the religion and do not make divisions in it.”What you call the idolaters to follow is very hard for them. God chooses for Himself anyone He wills and guides to Himself those who turn to Him. (Qur'n, 42:13)

Our Lord, Who has sent His religion to all nations, has cautioned all of their inhabitants through those He honored by choosing as Prophets. Every human being who has received the call to the true religion will be held accountable for how he or she responded to it.

The lives of God's chosen Messengers contain many messages and lessons for all people, especially when we study their encounters, their troubles, and their great struggles. The Qur'n cites Jesus as an example for people to follow, because of how he conducted his life and his struggle, and because of his great virtue.

Jesus' birth, life, and ascension to God's presence are all miracles that the Qur'n reveals in some detail. Although God reveals the narratives of many Prophets, Jesus, whom God supported with superior wisdom, is set apart from the others in several aspects, among them that he spoke even in the cradle, and that he was the vehicle for countless miracles while he was in this world. That his status is different also can be deduced from the fact that he was raised to God's presence and that the Qur'n indicates strongly his second coming.

The book seeks to analyze Jesus' life and struggle, as well as his virtue and character, closely and to spread the good news of his second coming in light of the relevant Qur'nic verses and hadiths (the sayings and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed). Our Lord gives important signs about Jesus and the future (the time between the Qur'n's revelation and the Day of Judgment) in the Qur'n, and the Prophet Mohammed (may God bless him and grant him peace) revealed much good news about him. The valuable information about Jesus' great struggle after his second coming, provided by the renowned Islamic scholar Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (1877-1960), is a glad tiding for all readers and should increase their excitement and lift their morale. All of this, as we said previously, shows that Jesus' creation was miraculous and that his life continued to be full of miracles.

While reading this book, the reader will come to know of his miraculous life and realize that we live in a very special time. One purpose of this work, besides drawing attention to an important miracle revealed in the Qur'n, is to say a"practical"prayer in the hope of being present when Jesus, a praised Messenger who is lauded in the Qur'n many times, returns to this world. Given that his second coming will be an extraordinary, miraculous, and metaphysical event that will affect the whole world, all believers should prepare and mobilize to welcome him in the best possible way. The excitement, love, and morale invested in these preparations will be an actual prayer, and those who do not prepare will feel great remorse when he returns. All of the signs indicate that the second coming will take place soon, so there is no time to waste.

HE [JESUS] IS A SIGN OF THE HOUR [OF RESURRECTION].

"Many portents revealed in the Qur'n and the Prophetic hadiths, as well as various statements made by Islamic scholars, indicate that Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) return is drawing nigh. In addition, the Bible contains information about the period before Doomsday and Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) second coming.

STATEMENTS IN THE TORAH AND THE BIBLE

So far, we have only looked at the Islamic sources, which contain a great deal of information about the End Times.

THE SIGNS FROM THE ISLAMIC RESOURCES

Harun Yahya, Jesus Will Return
www.jesuswillreturn.com/signs/signs_index.html



The Return of Jesus in the Qur'n and the Hadith

“It must come as something of a surprise to Christians to hear that the return of Jesus to earth is as much a basic belief of the Muslims as it is ours. Once again the vast majority of the Muslims of the world hold to this belief. As with the ascension the Qur'n does not treat the subject at any length and, as with so much of its teaching about Jesus, it is somewhat ambiguous. The one passage invariably brought forth to justify the doctrine is this one:

And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): Therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way. Surah 43.61

The key words in the original Arabic are Wa innahuu la'ilmil-lissaa'ti which, literally interpreted, mean only“And there is knowledge (ilm) of the Hour (sa'h).” Arberry thus translates it, viz.”It is knowledge of the Hour", as does Pickthall: “Verily there is knowledge of the Hour.” At first sight Yusuf Ali's interpretation in the quote above, to the effect that Jesus himself is the sign of the Hour of Judgment to come, appears to be broadly read into the text which would not otherwise yield it. A well-known Christian writer, however, summarily discounts any possibility that the text might refer to the second coming of Jesus at the end of the age. He says on this point:

No eschatological interpretation could possibly have been current in Arabia in reference to Jesus. The Medinan verse 43:61: “And it/he will be a sign of the Hour"may be translated: “Verily there is knowledge of the Hour.” Any idea of Jesus' future coming derives from subsequent interpretation. (Trimingham, Christianity Among the Arabs in Pre-Islamic Times, p. 267).

Another writer, however, accepts that if the pronoun built into the word innahuu refers to Jesus, then it may well be that this text is intended to allude to his return to the earth towards the end of time.

It is also significant that Christ is spoken of as a sign of the“Hour" (Sure xliii.61) which would appear to be a reference to His second advent (in which Muslims believe) if the pronoun refers back to Christ. (Sweetman, Islam and Christian Theology, Part One, Vol. 1, p. 34).

Commenting on the same verse a Muslim writer seeks support for the interpretation in favour of the return of Jesus to earth in some of the expressed views of some of Muhammad's own followers as they have been recorded in the traditions:

Distinguished Companions of the Holy Prophet Sallallaho alaihe wasallam, such as Hazrat Ibne-Abbas, Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Qatawa have opined that there is a specific allusion in the abovequoted wordings to the appearance of Jesus Christ before the Last Day. (Alam, Nuzul-e-Esa: Descension of Jesus Christ, p. 28).

In another place, referring to the opinions of the early Muslim interpreters of the Qur'n, he says:

Another commentator, Ibne-Atya, goes on to state that Moslem theologians are unanimous in holding that Jesus Christ is physically alive at present in Heavens and is destined to return to this world in the same condition towards the approach of the Last Day. (Alam, Nuzul-e-Esa: Descension of Jesus Christ, p. 37).

When the text is placed in its context in the Surah there does appear to be much to support the argument that it is Jesus himself who is spoken of as the knowledge or sign of the Hour. The passage begins by saying that Muhammad's people ridicule him when he seeks to hold up the son of Mary as an example (Surah 43.57), goes on to quote their objection that their gods are better than he (v.58), and asserts In huwa illa abdun -“He was no more than a servant"- who was made an example to the Children of Israel (v.59). Thereafter Jesus himself is quoted (w .63-64) and, analysing the key verse in this context, it is hard to see what else could be the"knowledge"or sign of the Hour of Judgment if it is not Jesus himself, the subject of the whole passage. Yusuf Ali has the following comment appended to the text:

This is understood to refer to the second coming of Jesus in the Last Days just before the Resurrection, when he will destroy the false doctrines that pass under his name, and prepare the way for the universal acceptance of Islam, the Gospel of Unity and Peace, the Straight Way of the Qur'n. (Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, p. 1337).

Another Muslim translator of the Qur'n has a similar comment on this verse: “The reference is to the second advent of Jesus" (Daryabadi, The Holy Qur'n, Vol. 2, p. 493B). Going on from the Qur'n to the Hadith we find that there are a wealth of traditions in support of the doctrine of the return of Jesus to earth. There are no less than seventy in fact and they are regarded as mutawatir,” universally attested"traditions of unquestioned reliability. One reads:

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: By Him in Whose hand is my life, the son of Mary (may peace be upon him) will soon descend among you as a just judge. He will break crosses kill swine and abolish Jizya, and the wealth will pour forth to such an extent that no one will accept it. (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, p. 92).

Another tradition states that"spite, mutual hatred and jealousy against one another will certainly disappear"during his reign when he returns (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, p. 93) and in yet another tradition we read that Surah 4.159, which teaches that“There is none of the People of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) but must believe in him before his death", is also a proof that Jesus will return to earth to receive the homage of all to whom the Scriptures have been given (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 4, p. 437). Throughout the various works in the Sirat and Hadith literature we find similar traditions suppor tiny the return of Jesus, another of which reads:

When Christ was raised (to the heavens), he was thirty-two years and six months old. The period of his prophethood lasted for thirty months. Allah raised him to heaven with his body; he is still alive and will return to this world and he will be a king of the whole earth and then he will die like other living beings. (Ibn Sa'd, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Vol. 1, p. 47).

It is immediately apparent that there are key differences between Christian and Muslim beliefs regarding the return of Jesus but what is of great significance is the very admission of this climactic event to come at the end of time.”

An Introduction to the Theology of Religions, Veli-Matti Karkkainen
“The main question of the theology of religions culminates simply in two basic affirmations that can be seen as guidelines for any biblical theology of religions. The first is this: God desires all men and women to be saved.”For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son" (Jn. 3:16).”This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him" (1 Jn 4:9). The most pointed passage is 1 Timothy 2:4, which affirms that God“Wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”These passages and a host of others make it clear that it is the heartbeat of a loving, caring Father to save all of his creation into an eternal communion. This is rightly called the"optimism of salvation.”

In addition to this first axiom, which consists of the boundless mercy of God that makes possible salvation for all, there is also another equally strong biblical conviction, namely, that only in Jesus Christ can salvation be found. This means that universality (salvation of the world) is reached by way of particularity (salvation through the mediation of Jesus Christ). A host of biblical passages also makes this clear: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).”I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (Jn 14:6).”

“In between Jesus Christ and His destroying Incarnation of Mahavishnu called as Kalki there is a time given to human beings to rectify themselves, for them to enter into the Kingdom of God, which in the Bible is called as Last Judgment.

The population of the Earth is at the maximum these days because all those - practically all those who had aspirations to enter into the Kingdom of God - are born in Modern Times and are going to be born very soon. This is the most important times because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to hear this but that's the fact. it's the Truth!

Though you can understand that Mother's Love makes it very easy for you to get to your Realization and that the whole story of Last Judgment - which looks such a horrifying experience - has been made very beautiful, and very tender, and delicate, and does not disturb you.”

“Thereafter, at the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no discussion on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and honoured gentlemen ... at that time the Lord will appear as the Supreme Chastiser.”

Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 2, Ch. 7 Text 38
(A.C. B. Swami Prabhupada, Srimad Bhagavatam, BTT, 1987, p. 422.)





“When the Work will be finished, when We will see that there is no more chance of having any more people in this line, Kalki will come down. Let us see how many will come in but there is also a limit of that ... So be very careful. Be very, very careful. Today is the Day of Warning you because you have asked Me to talk about Kalki.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Kundalini And Kalki Shakti, Bombay, India - September 28, 1979





“People do not know what Time has come. It is the Last Chance. You won't get anymore chance. In Bible it has been described as the Last Judgment.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Delhi, India - August 18, 1979





“Of course there are some absurd things which grew with misinterpretation and interference from unholy people, which are common in these religions. For example, Jews, Christian and Muslims believe that when they die their bodies will come out of their graves and they will all be resurrected at the Time of Resurrection, at the Time of Last Judgment, at the Time of Qiyamah. It is illogical to think what will remain inside those graves after five hundred years. Nobody wants to think and understand that it is not the body but the soul that will come out of these bodies, be born again as human beings, and be saved through Qiyamah and Resurrection.

Who will tell them? No one can talk to them. As soon as one wants to talk one can be killed. This is the only way they know - how to kill.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji




“The Prophets of Allah are not sent to humour us with dialectics or satisfy the vulgar curiosity for miracles of dark unusual things. There is no"crookedness" (18:1) in their preaching. They come to preach the Truth - not in the abstract way, but with special reference to our conduct. They give us the good news of salvation lest we despair in the presence of Sin, and to warn us clearly of the dangers of Evil. Vain controversies about words only weaken their mission, or turn it into ridicule. The ungodly have a trick also of treating the earnest preaching to them as a jest and ridicule it.”

Abdullah Yusuf Ali
The Holy Qur'n, 1989, p. 724





“Shri Kalki is the Redeemer and the Destroyer, the White Rider of the Christian and Hindu eschatologies, His Coming is actualised by Sahaja Yoga's implementation of collective consciousness on earth ...The Rider is the Destroyer. That was made perfectly clear in the Gospels and the Kalki Purana. When He will come, He will neither argue or listen, neither save nor forgive. We should clearly understand one thing: HH Mataji is the Saviour because She is the compassionate One to grant us emancipation before the coming of Shri Kalki. She is the Comforter that Christ has promised. Therefore, all our attention should be on Her, on the Now, and on self-realsation that She grants. Shri Kalki is not to be expected now. We are not ready for Him. He is the beloved and most obedient Son of HH Mataji. He listens to Her and delays His coming because the Divine Mother wants us to get our realisation first.”

Grégoire de Kalbermatten, The Advent
The Life Eternal Trust Publishers, 1979, p. 242-44





“A Muslim who does sinful acts is called fasiq. Fasiqs and all disbelievers will be tortured ('dhab) in their graves. These are certainly to be believed. After interment, the deceased will return to an unknown life and will be either at ease or in torture. As it was declared in hadith ash-Sharifs, two angels named munkar and nakir, in the guise of two unknown horrible people, will come to his grave and question him. Questions in the grave will be on some fundamentals of iman according to some scholars or on the whole of iman to some others. For this reason, we should teach our children the answers to the following questions: Who is your rabb (Allah)? What is your religion? Whose umma (which prophet's community) do you belong to? What is [the name of] your Holy Book? What is your qibla? What are your madhhabs in iman and in 'ibadat (or 'mal)? It is written in Tazkirat al-Qurtubi (54) that those who are not Ahl as-Sunnat will not be able to answer correctly. The graves of those who will give precise answers will enlarge and a window will be opened to Paradise. Every morning and every evening they will see their places in Paradise, and angels will do them favors and give them good news.

He who cannot answer precisely will be beaten with iron mallets so severely that every creature but mankind and genies will hear him cry out. His grave will become so tight that he will feel as if his bones would intertwine. A hole will be opened to Hell. In the morning and in the evening he will see his place in Hell. He will be tortured bitterly in his grave till the Resurrection.

It is necessary to believe in [the other] life after death. After the flesh and bones rot and turn into earth and gas, they will come together again; the souls will enter the bodies they belong to, and everybody will rise up from his grave. Therefore, this time is called the Day of Qiyama (Resurrection).(55)"

“The Quran has left many areas without detail and has omitted mention of certain other areas altogether. These are not, as the proponents of 'hadeeth' seem to think, oversights or shortcomings to be filled in by the Prophet through the rules laid down in his 'hadeeth' and his 'sunna' so posterity might properly practice its religion. In fact these omissions are deliberate and are a mercy from God. God has left them for us to set down and review from time to time as obtaining conditions change. They are left deliberately flexible and are not meant to be fixed for all time by the 'sunna', as has actually happened, with the inevitable results manifest everywhere in the Islamic world. We are using rules that might have been good for the Seventh Century A.D. at the end of the Twentieth. Does it surprise anyone that we are backward? No one with a God given brain should wonder why!"
