Sun And Moon 'Joined Together'"It is reported in many books of Hadith that the day Prophet Muhammad's son Ibrahim died as a young infant, there was also a Solar eclipse. Some people in Madina said that the sun eclipsed because of the death of Prophet's son. When the Prophet heard that he took his followers to the Masjid and had a long prayer. After the prayer, he gave them a sermon. In this sermon he praised Allah and then said, "O people, the sun and moon are two signs of the signs of Allah, they do not eclipse because of the birth or death of any person. But Allah warns His servants through them. When this happens you should rush to prayers." Muslims pray during this time, not because of any superstition, but because we know that similar things will happen at the end of the world. We do not know when the end of the world will come, but when such signs appear, we do pray to Allah to remember Him and to seek His forgiveness.”
Dr. Siddiqi, pakistanlink.com
An eclipse is a reminder of the Day of Judgment.
"Narrated Abu Musa: The sun eclipsed and the Prophet got up, being afraid that it might be the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment). He went to the Mosque and offered a prayer with the longest Qiyam, bowing and prostration that I had ever seen him doing. Then he said, "These signs which Allah sends do not occur because of the life or death of somebody, but Allah makes His worshipers afraid by them. So when you see anything thereof, proceed to remember Allah, invoke Him and ask for His forgiveness." - Huda

5. But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
6. He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
7. At length, when the sight is dazed
8. And the moon is buried in darkness
9. And the sun and moon are joined together that Day will Man say;
10. "Where is the refuge?"
11. By no means! No place of safety!"
12. Before the Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
13. That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
14. Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
15. Even though he were to make excuses.

20. Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
21. And leave alone the Hereafter.
22. Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty) -

35. Again, woe to thee, (O man!), yea, woe!
36. Does Man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?

40. Has not he, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
surah 75:1-40 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, 1989.)
According to Dr. Kamil Kayejo Oloso five conditions have to be met by an event to qualify as a miracle from Allah:
1. That no one except Allah, the Lord and Master of the worlds, is able to do it by Himself or through any of His messengers.
2. That the incident breaks the usual norms and differs from the law of nature.
3. That it serves as a proof for the trust and claim of the messenger
4. That it happened in accordance with the messenger’s claim, and
5. That the event happens through the messenger and no one else.
The 'full light and glory of the lord' that dazes?!!!
Fa-itha bariqa albasaru
At length, when the sight is dazed, 
surah 75:7 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Quran, 1989)
"5815. At the Hour of Judgement the full light and glory of the Lord will shine, and the effulgence will daze man's eyes. For the world as we knew it will go to pieces and a new World will come into being."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
In the first place where does this verse even remotely imply that His full Light and Glory will shine? Where is it written? They have conjured it out of thin air just to lend weight to their speculative interpretation. Secondly, how is it possible that His full Light will daze. A brief flash, for example a car's headlights, only dazes. Are the phony theologians trying to tell us that Allah's full Light will have the power and luminosity of an automobile's headlight? Why do hundreds of million Muslims agree to such utter nonsense? Or is it true that it does not insult their intelligence?
But if this "full light and glory of the Lord" is much more than that, and a brief flash for the matter, surely it will blind. Then what type of light are the Islamic scholars talking about? Is it infinitely more powerful? If this is so, won't a mere flash blind rather than daze?
eclipse taking place in India. Normal
sight would have become 'dazed' for a
few minutes, especially during duration
But to vitiate and mutilate a peaceful, natural solar eclipse into a chilling death and destruction doomsday scenario needs lots of elaborate maneuvering, disinformation, conjecture, hype and hypocrisy - and an army of blind, biased and intellectually challenged followers to legitimatize it.
But the infinite effulgence of the Light of the Lord will never daze the eyes. His Light is an infinite beacon of Love, so Pure and Divine that it never hurts the slightest bit. One may look at it for hours without any discomfort whatsoever. Those who have seen His Light have confirmed this Absolute Truth. Only those in ignorance have the temerity to say that His Light dazes. They have neither revealed knowledge nor His Guidance to ascertain Truth. And thus is the Ummah deceived and led astray, as has been the case for centuries.
The Defrauders (Al-Mutaffin) have again taken a priceless parable literally, and are waiting for the time when sight is dazed, the moon buried in darkness, and the sun and moon joined together. They are all waiting for Doomsday! They think that the moon will crash into the sun when Judgment Day comes.
But it is a parable. Allah admits that He has set many parables in the Qur'an (25:35.) A parable means an allegorical relation, a story in which people, things, and happenings have a hidden or symbolic meaning. Instead of looking it as such, the Islamic theologians translated it literally, for they believed that it was not possible for 'the sun and moon to join together.' (But to acknowledge that it is a solar eclipse really messes their scheme of things.)
So how on earth in the first place is it possible to spread the Great News of Resurrection all over the world if it's already Doomsday? What is the point of this absolute useless undertaking? Will just a single Muslim be able to provide a logical answer? Nay! they shall soon be told in the Afterlife that "This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye used not to know." Nay! Nay! they shall soon come to know.
Enlightened interpretation of note 5815
"The maximum duration of a total solar eclipse is about 7.5 minutes, but these are rare, occurring only once in several thousand years. A total eclipse is usually visible for about 3 minutes from a point in the center of the path of totality."

surroundings 'dazed' in broad daylight in
India during Oct. 25. 1995 solar eclipse.
The sight is dazed when there is a total solar eclipse and it normally lasts a few minutes. Sight may also be dazed by a lack, not abundance, of light as is the case here. The Qur'an is clearly referring to a solar eclipse, a natural phenomenon beyond human manipulation.
But even if the Islamic interpreters had thought about it they had no idea which total solar eclipse would begin the Day of Resurrection. This is the paramount reason the Qur'an sternly warned humans not to even move their tongues concerning this revelation. It was for Him to collect, promulgate, recite and explain since only Allah had the sole absolute right over the Sure Signs to witness the Resurrection. The preordained total solar eclipse commencing Al-Qiyamah had to meet the most exacting of Sure Signs absolutely beyond human manipulation, including the simultaneous and preordained Celestial Blast in Sky to occur exactly as this solar eclipse is taking place.
It must be repeated again to drive home the point - It was for Him to collect, promulgate, recite and explain since only Allah had the sole absolute right over the Sure Signs to witness the Resurrection. The surah of Al-Qiyamah was His exclusive prerogative and clearly excluded from interpretation till the appointed Hour!
This centuries-old collective transgression of surah Al-Qiyamah combined with the juxtaposition of Qiyamah and Judgment Day paralyzed Islamic eschatology. They were convinced that the sun and moon would join together on the dreaded Judgment Day, i.e. either crash into it, or perhaps fuse together by sheer heat on Doomsday.
For near fourteen centuries this conjectured illusion became a mental reality, and the Muslim masses snored in collective ignorance. This Blast of Truth will wake them up to the Reality of Resurrection, just as prophesied!
The Moon Will Stop Shining?!!!
And the moon is buried in darkness. 
surah 75:8 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Quran, 1989)
"5816. Not only will man's sight be dazed, but the great luminaries themselves will lose their light. The moon with its present reflected light will then cease to shine. All reflected or relative truth or goodness will sink into nothing before the true and internal Reality."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
Abdullah Yusuf Ali and his forty philosophers offer no enlightenment, but just fuzzy facts related to a blurry moon. Their use of obtuse words - "man's sight be dazed"; "great luminaries"; "lose their light"; "present reflected light"; "cease to shine"; "reflected or relative truth or goodness"; "sink into nothing"; "true and internal Reality" - do not clarifying meaning or make comprehension easier, and further detract from the impact of the rendering.
In the first place from where does Abdullah Yusuf Ali get the notion that the sun will cease to shine? Nowhere does the Qur'an ever say that the sun will cease to shine. Then why are the Islamic theologians conjuring lies?
They have to because they know fully well that as long as the sun shines the moon will shine - so they had to 'interpret' that the Qur'an implies that the sun will cease to shine and the moon will then be in darkness. Hundreds of million naive prisoners-of-religion embrace this falsehood, a pervasive Islamic collective consciousness that seems to accept any official interpretation, no matter how ridiculous. Only Satan has the power to lead such humans astray! Little do they comprehend the depth of deception they have succumbed to after centuries of religious indoctrination, intellectual atrophy and spiritual malnourishment. Ignorance is indeed bliss.
Enlightened interpretation of note 5816
There is no need to elaborate these simple words, "the moon is buried in darkness." The phrase just refers to the moon becoming dark during an eclipse. It's simple as that.

But Abdullah Yusuf Ali and his forty thieves of Truth continue to illumine the minds of hundreds of millions who never suspect that these Defrauders (Al-Mutaffin) know as much about "the true and internal Reality" as a donkey knows about Prophet Muhammad. So how are so many fools and fanatics of external religions going to realize that they had indeed surrendered to falsehood? How are so many deceived souls of religious regimes going to understand that it is the Night of Power and Honour (The Holy Qur'an, 97:1-5 Al Qadr) which precedes the dreaded Doomsday, the Day of Noise and Clamor (The Holy Qur'an, 101:1-11 Al Qariah)? How are so many deluded minds and poisoned hearts going to believe that Qiyamah is indeed taking place right now? Satan, you are so ingenious!
Nay! they shall soon be told in the Afterlife that "This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye used not to know." (The Holy Qur'an, 30:57) Nay! Nay! they shall soon come to know.
The Sun And Moon Is The 'Original Light' ?!!!
WajumiAAa alshshamsu waalqamaru
Yaqoolu al-insanu yawma-ithinayna almafarru
And the sun and moon are joined together that Day will Man say; "Where is the refuge?"
surah 75:9-10 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Quran, 1989)
"5817. To the moon the sun is the original light, but the sun itself is a created light, and it will sink into nothingness along with the moon. Both will be like empty shells "whose lights are fled, whose glories dead" because the Prototype of all Light now shines in the full splendour in a new World."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
Again there is only the beating around the bush and meaningless interpretations: "sink into nothingness"; "empty shells"; "whose lights are fled"; "glories dead"; "prototype of all light." This has nothing to do with the message of Qur'an that the sun and moon are joined together. In what way is their interpretation related to "the sun and moon joining together"? Why is an obvious fact, requiring little common sense, interpreted into a 'smoke and mirrors' illusion? Why have the learned scholars mutilated a simple natural phenomenon into something that even they do not comprehend? Why do erudite theologians frighten ignorant multitudes with gloom and doom speculations? How can a few scholars turn hundreds of millions of faithful into blind, deaf and dumb religious retards?
Some Islamic interpreters have even boldly declared that the moon will crash into the sun on this Day of Judgment. None of them seem to grasp the incomparably exquisite parable of the Qur'an that the 'sun and moon will join together', a far gentle and awe-inspiring natural phenomena than the absolutely chaotic fire and brimstone apocalyptic End of bogus mullahs speculating the sudden murderous wrath of the Almighty Creator descending on an unsuspecting humankind. No wonder Allah forewarned that no human was to ever touch this surah on Qiyamah, the heart and soul of the Qur'an. Yet they transgressed His explicit warning and today, after centuries of raping and impregnating this surah with their filthy seed of falsehood and deception, hundreds of millions are indoctrinated to defy God Almighty's Plan for humanity. Satan, I salute you!
Enlightened interpretation of note 5817
The only way the "sun and the moon can be joined together" is during an eclipse, i.e., a total solar eclipse when the sun and moon are a perfect fit. Only a total solar eclipse fits perfectly into these descriptions of surah 75.7-9: i) the sight is dazed; ii) the moon is buried is darkness; iii) the sun and moon are joined together.
1400 years ago Abu Musa narrated that the "sun eclipsed and the Prophet got up, being afraid that it might be the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment)". Prophet Muhammad—already revealed that a total solar eclipse will trigger Al-Qiyamah (surah 75)—instinctively went to the Mosque and offered a prayer with the longest Qiyam, bowing and prostrating in ways that Abu Musa had never seen him doing before. But it was only natural for Prophet Muhammad to immediately proceed to remember Allah, invoke Him and ask for His forgiveness as he (Prophet Muhammad) knew what a solar eclipse meant.
But that was not the preordained Solar Eclipse commencing Al-Qiyamah. It was still far into the future and had to be backed by His irrefutable Sure Signs, and the collection, promulgation, recitation and explanation of the Great Event by His Ruh. (These specific requirements take years/decades and therefore explicitly rules out a sudden, fiery End!)
The solar eclipse of October 24, 1995 is the preordained eclipse that commences Al-Qiyamah foretold 1400 years ago. It is backed by His irrefutable Sure Signs, and the collection, promulgation, recitation and explanation of the Great Event by His Ruh. We hereby yet again declare to the Ummah that—backed by His irrefutable Sure Signs, and the collection, promulgation, recitation and explanation of the Great Event by His Ruh Shri Mataji—it is the solar eclipse of October 24, 1995 that commences the Hour of Resurrection and Judgment. May none of you in the Hereafter ever deny being told of this Great News and Warning!
And humans will ask: "Where is the refuge?"
So are they to seek shelter in the Temple, Synagogue, Church, Mosque or Shrine or other manmade external Idol? The Qur'an issues a stern, foreboding warning that absolutely removes any hope of salvation from any religious regime: "By no means! No place of safety!" There will be no protection from the Universal Call to witness the Resurrection. Each and every human is subject to this Call and no refuge will be available in the Temple, Synagogue, Church, Mosque or Shrine. There is absolutely no safety in these corrupted houses or worship.
The only place of safety is within, where the heart, mind and soul may ascertain the Good News of Qiyamah.
The only place of safety is within, where the Night of Power and Fate will be understood.
The only place of safety is within, where the Baptism of Allah is available.
The only place of safety is within, where the Winds of Qiyamah will blow.
The only place of safety is within, where all the Believers of Al-Qiyamah will cleanse heart, mind and soul.
The only place of safety is within, where all the faithful will be guided by His self-reproaching Spirit.
The only place of safety is within, where lies the glory of Allah's An Nur and His Regions in the Soul.
"You have to take a stand in your family, in your surroundings, with your friends, and you have to tell them, "You better all get realized." The reason for that is that the Christ who crucified Himself is going to come back with his Eleven Forces of Destruction. And when He starts He is not going to ask you to take any Realization. No one is going to be bothered whether you are going to hell. He will just sort out. But those who have got Realization will enter into the Kingdom of God. You have to enter into the Kingdom of God here, as I say, in the Seventh Chakra*."
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, The New Age Has Started
Houston, USA - Oct. 6, 1981
* The Seventh Chakra is the esoteric i) Kingdom of God (Christianity); ii) Sahasrara Chakra (Hinduism); iii) Dsam Dwar (Sikhism); iv) 1000 Petal Lotus (Buddhism); v) "Palace in the Head" (Taoism); vi) Kether (Judaism) or vii) Regions in their Souls (Islam). To "enter into the Kingdom of God here, as I say, in the Seventh Chakra" means to seek and meditate on God Almighty within oneself. Even Prophet Muhammad was meditating in a cave around Mount Hira when he received the first revelation from Angel Jibril.
Note: More than two decades ago the Great Adi Shakti announced that Shri Jesus Christ was born on the eve of Diwali , the Hindu new year, and not the 25th of December.
"The Pope has caused a stir on numerous occasions during the past two years by challenging long-held Catholic notions. Two years ago, he pronounced that the theory of evolution was compatible with the biblical account of human origins, and less than two months ago issued an encyclical stating that science and faith were compatible as two different, but complementary, methods for apprehending the truth. He also recently acknowledged historical research which notes that December 25th was not actually Christ's birthday, but a convenient date borrowed by early Christians from pagan winter festivals."
C. Andrews, Modernizing God's Image, (National Post, Jan 20, 1999)
The total solar eclipse of October 24, 1995 is also the first to fall on Diwali since 1762. The timing of the total solar eclipse taking place simultaneously on His date of birth (Christianity), the beginning of Qiyamah (Islam), and the New Year (Hinduism) is truly Divine Intervention: It has taken place for the first time ever in the history of this universe.
Nowhere are these religious connections observed more deeply than in India. Many foreigners traveled thousands of miles to observe this eclipse and yet millions of locals remained indoors to avoid it as religious leaders saw great danger in this particular eclipse. A curfew-like silence hung over the major cities which were not even in the path of totality. The infamous New Delhi traffic was almost non existent on that day as fear drove them to avoid this ominous sign of celestial warning. The tradition of Astrology in the Indian, mainly Hindu, culture is thousands of years in the making. Even today it is still a powerful force. This festival of Diwali, revered and celebrated by almost a billion Indians was itself brought forward by a day to avoid a clash.
this ill-fated solar eclipse falling on Diwali
This unprecedented manipulation of a most revered religious festival is of great significance! There has been nothing in the annals of Hinduism that called for such drastic action that went against the upholding of truth and righteousness. Diwali had to be shifted out of solar eclipse to avoid being tainted by premonition that something terrible would happen. It is tantamount to the festival of Eid deliberately moved to avoid a 'bad' moon sighting.
It is amazing to think that a nation that can launch satellites into Earth orbit can also have such a deep routed fear of a so natural an event. But they have good reason to fear the solar eclipse of October 24, 1995. The day will come when Hindus will learn that avoidance of this divinely ordained total solar eclipse of Al-Qiyamah does not exclude them from the Call to begin the Resurrection, even if refuge is sought in temples, shrines and gurdwaras.
There are many other Signs related to Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) - "And (Jesus) shall be Sign of the Hour of Judgment (The Holy Qur'an 43:61) - and they are explained at the www.adishakti.org website:
Prophet Jesus was controversial and so is the Comforter Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi sent by Him in the name of God Almighty to announce the Last Judgment. The Comforter is not what the ulema has falsely led the Ummah to believe. The Resurrection thus separates Allah's True Believers (Al-Mu'minun) from religious fundamentalists and fools. The Sure Signs (Bayyinat) are for those who have wisdom, faith and foresight to understand the events taking place on Earth. The Great News of Qiyamah (The Holy Qur'an, 78:1-5 An-Naba) is for the healing of all nations through the Divine Revelations of God Almighty. Humans will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free - free from ignorance, darkness, delusion, distortion, dogma, despair, division, hate, hostility, fear, fiction, falsehood, and death.

Types of Kufr (Disbelief) — Adapted from 'Tafseer ibn Katheer'
1. Kufrul-'Inaad: Disbelief out of stubbornness;
2. Kufrul-Inkaar: Disbelief out of denial;
3. Kufrul-Kibr: Disbelief out of arrogance and pride;
4. Kufrul-Juhood: Disbelief out of rejection;
5. Kufrul-Nifaaq: Disbelief out of hypocrisy;
6. Kufrul-Kurh: Disbelief out of detesting any of Allah's commands;
7. Kufrul-Istihzaha: Disbelief due to mockery and derision;
8. Kufrul-I'raadh: Disbelief due to avoidance;
In Abdullah Yusuf Ali's commentary Kufr, Kafara, Kafir, and derivative forms of the word imply a deliberate rejection of faith, revelation and truth of the Holy Qur'an: "The culmination of Allah's Revelation is in the Qur'an, which confirms previous scriptures, corrects the errors which men introduced into them, and explains many points in detail for all who seek right worship and service to Allah—whether they inherit the previous Books or not. It is a universal Message ... The worst and most hardened sinner is the man to whom Allah's Signs are actually brought home and who yet prefers Evil and turns away from the Light of Allah. The Signs may be in the words and guidance of a great Teacher or in some sorrow or warning, but from which he deliberately refuses to profit. The penalty—the Nemesis—must necessary come eventually."
According to Ibn Taymiyah (1263 – 1328) "kufr is the attribute of everyone who rejects something that God has commanded us to believe in, after news of that has reached him, whether he rejects it in his heart without uttering it, or he speaks those words of rejection without believing it in his heart, or he does both; or he does an action which is described in the texts as putting one beyond the pale of faith."
However, this explanation of kufr is most lucid and applicable to the sheer gravity, importance, and dire consequences of this universal Message of Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection): "Just as faith for Muslims has to do not with believing but with knowing, so kufr, rejection, is not a lack of belief, not an intellectual position that holds that something is otherwise than is the case, and certainly it is not mere ignorance. Rather it, too, like its correlative iman, presupposes knowledge; for it is an active repudiation of what one knows to be true. This is why it is a sin, and indeed a (the) monstrous sin. It is the one final, cosmic (or some would say, the one final human) wrong; the deliberate saying of 'no' to what one knows to be right." (Wilfred Cantwell Smith, On Understanding Islam: Selected Studies, 1981, page 154)
Therefore most of the Al-Kufr ul Akbar (major disbeliefs) are applicable to those rejecting or disbelieving Allah's (SWT) Signs and surahs upholding the collection, promulgation, recital, explanation and warning of the following:
i) His Call to witness Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection);
ii) His Call to witness His Ruh (self-reproaching Spirit);
iii) His Call to heed Al Naba (The Great News);
iv) His Call to participate in Al Qadr (The Night of Power and Destiny);
v) His Call to confirm His Revelations, Signs, and Warnings (of i-iv).
Thus kaffir (non-believer) here is applied to all humankind, both Muslim and non-Muslim, who reject the Call that God has commanded us to believe in after His Revelations, Signs and Warnings have reached us. The Qur'an clearly warns that many will disbelief, even mock, the Great News and Sure Signs of Al-Qiyamah.
So be forewarned, and in the Hereafter never deny deliverance of this clear Warning: "O ye assembly of Jinns and men! came there not unto you messengers from amongst you, setting forth unto you My signs, and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" Qur'an 6.130
And those still rejecting, hesitant or unable to make up their minds even after hearing the Great News and shown the Signs, Allah (SWT) questions: "Are they waiting until the Hour comes to them suddenly? All the Signs thereof have already come. Once the Hour comes to them, how will they benefit from their message?" "Why do they not study the Quran carefully? Do they have locks on their minds?" Qur'an 47:18-24
The last paragraph is yet another warning from Allah (SWT) that prior to the Wrath of the End (Al Qariah) humans are offered the Mercy of the Resurrection (Al Qadr). And once the Hour of Al Qariah comes to them, how will they benefit from their contemporary message of Al Qadr i.e., from the Great News of the messengers from amongst you? How will those reading these lines benefit if they continue to doubt and wait, and the Striking Day comes suddenly? What use then will be the Mercy and Compassion of Al Qadr (Night of Destiny) if the morn of the Al Qariah (Striking Day) ends His Peace? Why doesn't the Ummah then not study the Quran with painstaking effort to avoid the errors, mistranslation and ignorance of the ulema that have presently paralyzed their minds from believing the Great News? Why don't they use their own mental faculties and intelligence to understand Al- Qiyamah, the heart and soul of the living, breathing Quran? Living and breathing because God Almighty is now talking directly to you through His Holy Book! After all, it is Allah (SWT) who has now called out to all Believers with this Decree: "I do call to witness the Resurrection Day; And I do call to witness the self-reproaching Spirit." He is specifically addressing you in particular (and Believers is general) to do so!
Only now in this modern age of universal education, mass media and publishing technology—after 14 centuries and unlike the illiterate past—is it possible to own and be sufficiently literate to "study the Quran carefully" in languages they understand best.* And just in case the Believers start studying the entire Qur'an, it must be stressed that Allah (SWT) is referring specifically to those eschatological Signs and surahs upholding His Call to bear witness of the Resurrection! They must thoroughly examine and understand the Signs that have already manifested, and set forth by messengers from amongst themselves.
Without question, to "study the Quran carefully" means using one's own mental faculties, not those of the ulema (Muslim clergy) who have for centuries put "locks on their minds" and are the very reason for the Ummah's present predicament i.e., their unprecedented kaffir-like mindset, reaction, rejection and mocking of His Call, Signs and Great News of the Resurrection. They must know that during Al Qadr no 'graves are going to open up' as this is His Night of Compassion and Mercy. So "Peace!... This until the rise of the morn!" (Quran 97:5)

"We are now in the Blossom Time, as I call it, because many flowers are born and they are to become the fruits. This is the Resurrection Time, which is described in all the scriptures. But it’s not like this, the way they had described us. Something wrong with them that all the dead bodies who are in the graves will come out of the graves. I mean, how much is left out of them, God knows. Must be some bones or maybe some skulls there. So they’ll come out of the graves and they will get their Resurrection!!!? This is a very wrong idea.
Once I happened to meet a fellow, a Muslim from Bosnia and he told Me, "I want to die for my religion, for God’s sake." I said, "But why? Who told you to die?" He said, "Now, if I die in the name of God, I’ll be resurrected." I said, "It’s all wrong. That’s not the way it is going to work out. Resurrection is going to work out this way that at this time, all these souls will take their birth. All these souls will take their birth and they will be resurrected. As human beings they’ll have to come."
That’s why we find all kinds of funny people these days, all kinds of cruel, criminal, all kinds of idiotic, stupid, I mean very queer, weird, funny ideas which find such, such a variety of people and such a tremendous population that we should understand they have to have their chance of Resurrection. But how many will come? That’s the point. How many are going to come?"

So Peace to all Believers resurrecting themselves during this blessed Night of Power and Destiny (Al Qadr)! So Peace to all Believers of the Great News (Al Naba)! So Peace until the dreadful morn of the Great Calamity, the Striking Day (Al Qariah) against the Unbelievers (Al-Kafirun)!
Last, but not the least, the Qur'an insists that ample warning of impending calamity must be always delivered by His messengers:
"That is because thy Lord would never destroy the cities unjustly, while their inhabitants were heedless." (Quran 6.131);
"Never did We destroy a population, but had its warners - By way of reminder; and We never are unjust." (Quran 26:208-209);
"And never did Thy Lord destroy the townships, till He had raised up in their mother-town a messenger reciting unto them Our revelations." (Quran 27:59);
This cardinal rule has been expressly complied with and Warning of the impending Great Calamity repeatedly announced and fearlessly upheld by the incarnation of His Ruh for more than three decades until Her retirement in 2008 at the age of 85. (Since Jesus is the mandatory Sign of the Hour [Quran 43:61], and as the Comforter promised and sent by God Almighty in Jesus' name, She has also ceaselessly glorified Christ and His Message of the Last Judgment.)
"I should do something to bring sense to these people (humanity). Something should happen to them otherwise what I see is a complete disaster. It is going to happen. I do not want to frighten you like Mrs Thatcher does about the Russians. That might be imaginary. But this is real. I am warning you that the Disaster is going to come as destruction itself."

"The Last Judgment has started. We are facing the Last Judgment today. We are not aware of it. And all the satanic forces have come out like the wolves in sheep's clothes. And they are trying to attract you and you do not judge them. You only sit down and judge the Reality. It has started! It is a fact! It has started!"

"I have such respect for so many of them (Muslims). I wish they could accept that this is not Jihad time anymore but Qiyamah Time, the Resurrection Time, the Blossom Time. Are they going to miss it?"

— "Muslim illiteracy worldwide stands at about 51 percent for all age groups over fifteen. Despite a rapid increase in primary school enrollment, only 45 percent of Muslim children aged six to eleven attend primary school. An even larger gap exists at higher levels of research." - Martin S. Kramer, Arab awakening and Islamic revival, 1996, page 280;
— "The vast majority of Muslims do not speak Arabic as their native tongue" - Christine Huda Dodge, The everything understanding Islam, 2003, page 21;
— "The degree of knowledge of Arabic determines a person's understanding of the Islamic creed. The Quran, the Hadith and Sira traditions (Prophetic sayings and actions), and the writings of the early Islamic scholars and jurists were in Arabic. Imam Shafei (767- 820), the founder of the Shafei School of Sunni jurisprudence, advocated that every Muslim should learn Arabic, at least to the point of reciting the Quran (Hourani 1991, 68). Most non-Arab Muslims do not understand Arabic." - Elie Elhadj, The Islamic Shield, 2006, page 22;
— "If your mother tongue is not Arabic, Satan (or his troops) will encourage you to read the Quran in Arabic. Why does he do that? Because he knows that you will not understand enough of it. The majority of those who learn Arabic to study the Quran do not excel enough to understand the implication or interpretation of certain words when used in a special way in the Arabic language. They will have a lot of shortcomings. Many Pakistani and Indian Muslims are forced as children to read the Quran in Arabic and still as adults read the Quran in Arabic but they do not understand a single word of what they read... The Quran is a message, not just another beautiful language book. If you cannot read it in Arabic do not wait until the day you excel in your Arabic language, because this day may never come. Trust God and know that He is the teacher of the Quran. He will teach in any language and to any nationality, He created all things. Read your Quran today, (do not wait any longer,) in any language that you can understand and master and leave the rest to God.” Dr. Rashad Khalifa, Ph.d.
QUOTES OF ALLAH'S (SWT) RUH SHRI MATAJI NIRMALA DEVI
"And the symbol of Ganesha on one side is Christ. He symbolized Ganesha. So both of them are worshipped only on Diwali. Actually this is the Christmas. This is the real Christmas that was before also and this was the time baby Christ was born; not the 25th of December. It's a misunderstanding . . . the darkest night where there is no moon, absolutely that is the day when we celebrate Diwali . . . And that is the time when Christ was born. That's why lights are put on in the night because He was born at 12 o'clock in the night . . . Now see, symbolically, Christ is born and the New Year is celebrated. Next day, as soon as He is born, new year started."

"As a symbol of Ganesha outside is Christ. He symbolizes Ganesha, so both of them are worshipped only on Diwali. Actually this is the Christmas. This is the real Christmas that was before also, and this was the time baby Christ was born, not the 25th December. No, it's a misunderstanding. Doesn't matter, keep it up, doesn't matter whenever He was born because there used to be a very big festival.
And after the festival He was born, called as Valanan. I don t know what you call in Modern Times, at the time it was called like that, and then this Child was born and that was the time Christmas was celebrated. It was just with that but somehow it shifted. I don't know how it shifted. There might be somewhere you'll find out that real Christmas was shifted."

This being the case, then the extremely rare solar eclipse on Diwali—the actual birth date of Jesus Christ—has immense importance because the Qur'an procliams that "He (Jesus) is the Sign of the Hour (of Resurrection)" - Surat az-Zukhruf 43:61. The total solar eclipse on the Diwali day of October 24, 1995 not only confirms that Sign but also brings harmony and unity to the great religions of Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. Shri Jesus was born on this most auspicious day of the Hindu calendar. Now the Islamic Qur'an reveals that the pre-ordained solar eclipse of Qiyamah falls simultaneously on the most auspicious Hindu festival of Diwali and the birth date of the Christian Jesus Christ. This is the Divine Eclipse that signals the beginning of Resurrection for all! The Great News (The Holy Qur'an, 78:1-5 An-Naba) of Qiyamah is a Message of peace and harmony to all humans, the time for the healing of all nations. Qiyamah is the fulfillment of scriptural prophecies to all humankind, outlining their common heritage and destiny. The Resurrection does not discriminate between the divided sects of Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. Neither does it discriminate Natives, criminals, murderers, thieves, prostitutes or anyone else. It is for all those who believe that Allah is One, that all of His Messengers are legitimate, that all His religions and holy books are valid, that all His Sure Signs are irrefutable, that all prophecies have been fulfilled, and that it is the Promised Time for humanity to evolve higher in order to enter His Paradise. And for those who think they will be saved, and deny His Signs of the Resurrection: Say: "Shall we tell you of those who lose most in respect of their deeds?-
Diwali symbolizes the triumph of Good over Evil. That is why candles and oil-lamps are lit all over India, signifying the eternal victory of Light over Darkness; the glory of Truth over Falsehood; the assured victory of God Almighty over all negative forces.
"Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life, while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works?"
They are those who deny the Signs of their Lord and the fact of their having to meet Him (in the Hereafter): vain will be their works, nor shall We, on the Day of Judgment, give them any weight.
That is their reward, Hell, because they rejected Faith, and took My Signs and My Messengers by way of jest.
As to those who believe and work righteous deeds, they have, for their entertainment, the Gardens of Paradise,

"The Solar and Lunar eclipses are the natural signs of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. Like other natural phenomena such as rain, sunshine, summer, winter etc. they do affect weather, plants, humans and animals. There is no harm to study the scientific affects of the Solar and Lunar eclipses. However, Islam does not allow any superstitions or superstitious beliefs. It is reported in many books of Hadith that the day Prophet Muhammad's son Ibrahim died as a young infant, there was also a Solar eclipse. Some people in Madina said that the sun eclipsed because of the death of Prophet's son. When the Prophet heard that he took his followers to the Masjid and had a long prayer. After the prayer, he gave them a sermon. In this sermon he praised Allah and then said, "O people, the sun and moon are two signs of the signs of Allah, they do not eclipse because of the birth or death of any person. But Allah warns His servants through them. When this happens you should rush to prayers." (see al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Jumu'ah, hadith no. 990 and Muslim, Kitab al-Kusuf, hadith no. 1508)
Muslims pray during this time, not because of any superstition, but because we know that similar things will happen at the end of the world. We do not know when the end of the world will come, but when such signs appear, we do pray to Allah to remember Him and to seek His forgiveness."
