In the text, Signs of Qiyamah, it is redacted by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali that after the arrival of the Enlightened One, Imam Madhi,
"the ground will cave in, fog or smoke will cover the skies for forty days. A night three nights long will follow the fog. After the night of three nights, the sun will rise in the west. The Beast of Earth shall emerge. The beast will talk to people and mark the faces of people. A breeze from the south shall cause sores in the armpits of Muslims which they will die from. The Qu'ran will be lifted from the hearts of the people.
The "Imam...will create a world state...He will teach you simple living and high thinking. With such a start he will establish an empire of Allah in this world. He will be the final demonstration and proof of Allah's merciful wish to acquaint man with the right ways of life."
However, the main source of apocalyptic traditions in the Islamic faith originate from the Hadith, or sayings of Mohammed. Here, the Judeo-Christian influence upon Islam is more obvious than in the Quran as it pertains to the end times.
The apocalypse scenario mentioned in the Hadith incorporates material from the Book of Ezekiel and Revelations, most notably in its mention of the Antichrist and his armies. Called the Dajjal, this Antichrist figure would use his powers to rule the world and take people away from Islam, in much the same way as the Antichrist would take people away from Christianity in Revelations.

There isn't just one source for the "Abrahamic" religions. Judaism and Christianity are eclectic in their origins, plagiarizing(borrowing) from Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Babylonian, and so on. Just as they all have from each other, putting their own spin on what they borrowed as they went along. Even the stories of Abraham, Noah, and Moses are both borrowed, and made up.
