The Antichrist and Islam: Could the Antichrist Rise from within Islam?
He told me that he had sailed in a ship with thirty men from Banu Lakham and Banu Juzam. They approached the island and landed. They were met by a beast that was so hairy that they could not tell its front from its back. They said: 'Woe to you! Who are you? Tamim Dari said we quickly went to the monastery.
There, we found a huge man whom we had never seen before. His hands were tied up to his neck and his legs tied up with with iron shackles. We said: 'Woe to you, who are you? Tell me who you are. We said: 'We are people from Arabia. We sailed on a ship, but the waves have been tossing us around about for a month, and they brought us to your island, where we met a very hairy beast. It said: 'I am Al-Jassasah. He said: 'Soon, they will not bear fruits. He said: 'How does he deal with them'?

In forty nights, I will pass through every town, except Makka Mecca and Tiba Madina , for these have been forbidden to me. Every time I try to enter either of them, I will be met by an angel bearing an unsheathed sword, who will prevent me from entering. There will be angels guarding them at every route leading to them. No, rather he is in the East, he in the East, he is in the East,' and he pointed towards the East with his hand.
Then, the last Dajjal appears. According to the story of Tamim Ad-Dari, mentioned above, the Dajjal foretold that there will be no more water in this lake. In the first year of the famine, Heaven will withhold one third of its rain and the Earth one third of its crops. In the second year of the famine, Heaven will withhold two thirds of its rain and the Earth will withhold two thirds of its crops.
In the third year, there will not be a single drop of rain and not a single thing will grow. Thus, all the animals with hoofs and biting teeth will die and the Tasbeeh mentioning Subhan-Allah will suffice the believers' hunger. The Dajjal's Parents. The following weak Hadith is reported by Abu Bakara: "His father will be tall and thin and his nose will be pointed like a beak, while his mother will be fat with two long hands.

The following Hadiths present the sequence of events:. The pillaging of Yathrib will be lead to the outbreak of the Big Battle. Both the Antichrist and the Mahdi are said to be the unqualified leaders of a global religious movement that will draw worship away from the God of the Bible and His Son Jesus Christ. As we will see clearly in later chapters, inherent in the worship of Allah within the context of Islam is a direct denial of the God of the Bible and His Son Jesus Christ. Which leads us to the next obvious similarity between the Antichrist and the Mahdi.
The Bible is very clear that Satan, through the Antichrist, will specifically target first Jews, and then Christians for death.
Religions on the End of the World
In the Book of Revelation, chapter twelve and thirteen, we read another prophetic passage of Scripture that is rich with symbolic language. Initially it is slightly difficult to understand, but after the symbols are explained, it becomes very clear:. A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
We see that she is crowned with twelve stars.

This represents the twelve sons of Israel who became the twelve tribes that make up the family or the nation of Israel Genesis She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.
The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. After this:. The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him…He The Dragon pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child… The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.
Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring--those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus. Revelation ,9,13,14, The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. It speaks primarily of the true followers of Jesus who know and serve the One True God. Again here we see the reference to the three and a half year period that Antichrist will persecute those who resist him.
The Bible is clear then, the Antichrist will specifically target those who resist his attempts to establish his religion all over the earth. From the book of Revelation as well as the Prophet Daniel, we see that the two groups that Satan is most enraged against are the Jews and the Christians. It seems as though converting Christians and Jews to Islam will be the primary evangelistic thrust of the Mahdi. The following quote from Ayatollah Ibrahim Amini clearly articulates this vision:.
The Mahdi will offer the religion of Islam to the Jews and Christians; if they accept it they will be spared, otherwise they will be killed. And of course we cannot forget the infamous Hadith that has become a favorite of many Muslim anti-Semites.
