Many people are aware of what the Bible says regarding end times, but are ignorant of what Islam teaches. Here are the minor and major signs of the end times according to Islam. How many of them are coming true?


The Minor Signs:

The disappearance of knowledge and the appearance of ignorance (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad)
Books/writing will be widespread and (religious) knowledge will be low (Ahmad)
Adultery and fornication will be prevalent (The Prophet, peace be upon him, said that this has never happened without new diseases befalling the people, which their ancestors had not known.) (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Al-Haythami)
When fornication becomes widespread among your leaders (The Prophet, peace be upon him, said that this will happen when the people stop forbidding evil) (Ibn Majah)
Adultery and fornication will be performed in the open
The consumption of intoxicants will be widespread (Bukhari & Muslim)
Women will outnumber men......eventually 50:1 (Bukhari, Muslim, & Ahmad)
Killing, killing, killing (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad)
People will beat others with whips like the tails of oxen (Muslim) ?The Slave Trade
The children will be filled with rage (at-Tabarani, al-Hakim)
Children will be foul (at-Tabarani, al-Hakim)
Women will conspire (at-Tabarani, al-Hakim)
Rain will be acidic or burning (at-Tabarani, al-Hakim)... (more at link)

The Major Signs:

Although they appear here in no particular order, it is important to point out that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that these last, major signs will follow each other like pearls falling off of a necklace...

Masih ad-Dajjal (The AntiChrist)
The Mahdi
The appearance of Masih al-’Isa (Jesus Christ), the son of Mary (peace be upon him)
Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Magog)
The destruction of the Ka’bah and the recovery of its treasure
Emergence of the Beast
The smoke
Three major landslides (one in the East, one in the West, and one on the Arabian peninsula)
The wind will take the souls of the believers
The rising of the sun from the west
The fire will drive the people to their final gathering place
Three blasts of the trumpet (fear & terror, death, resurrection)

Islamic Eschatology mirrors Christian Eschatology except the roles are reversed. Your Mahdi is our antichrist, your Isa is our false prophet, your Dijal is our one of the two witnesses. Doesn't that strike you as odd, that the two closely mirror each other except the bad guys and the good guys are reversed?

Islamic prophecy is not exactly the mirror image of biblical prophecy as christian fundamentalists imagine.


Reason 1
Christians believe that a virgin-born messiah, Jesus destroys both the anti-christ.
Muslims also believe that a virgin born messiah, Jesus destroys the anti-christ.

Reason 2
Muslims believe that the anti-christ will be blind in the right eye.
The bible also suggests that the anti-christ will be blind in the right eye. See Zechariah 11:17.


Therefore, the Christ and the anti-christ are well defined in Islam. No room for confusion there.

Also, muslims do not believe that Isa (the false prophet according to you) kills the Mahdi (the anti-christ according to you). Kind of like how Christians dont believe that the the false-prophet kills the anti-christ.

Also your anti-christ + false prophet theory does not have any biblical validity. You make it sound like there are 2 bad guys working together. The bible makes it clear that there is only ONE bad guy. i.e - the anti-christ / dajjal.

The first beast from the sea (who you call the anti-christ) is actually a kingdom, NOT a human.

The second beast from the land (who you call the false prophet) is a human.... who works on behalf of the first beast. He is your human anti-christ.

The government/kingdom is the beast, the antichrist is the "little horn". He is also referred to as the "beast". He is assisted by the false prophet. The "Dijal" in Islamic texts would correspond with one of the two witnesses, most likely Elijah. In Islamic Eschatology the Mahdi and Isa go to Jerusalem and kill the Dijal. In the Bible Elijah is killed by the false prophet and the AC at the midway point of the tribulation.

And the people cheer and throw a party in the streets for 3 days after he is martyred because he was such a...thorn in their (back)side and then he gets resurrected.

The first beast from the "sea" is the same beast that the whore rides. (note the description of 10 horns and 7 heads) So it is a kingdom.... and not a human anti-christ.
The beast from the "land", who you call the false prophet.... is the human anti-christ / dajjal.

As for the little horn....theres a good chance that it is the same as the beast with 7 horns and 10 heads.

compare

It (the little horn) grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. - Daniel 8:10

with

Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. - Rev 12:3-4


Also note that this dragon also had 7 heads and 10 horns. Why??
Little horn, the dragon, the first beast and the beast that the whore rides ARE ALL THE SAME!


The second beast spoke "like a dragon" (like = indicating that it was not the dragon/first beast itself)
Compare that to the little horn who is described as having a mouth speaking "great things".

Exactly where exactly does the bible say Elijah is killed by the false prophet?

Revelation, mid-point of Daniel's 70th week, beginning of the Great Tribulation.

Satan (the dragon) possesses the AC/little horn. In apocalyptic literature "horns" are kings they have crowns.

No, it actually doesn't mirror it. There are many differences.

And Isa is Arabic for Jesus. So you just called Jesus a false prophet. That'd be like saying that Hispanic people calling Jesus "Hay-soos" (written this way because in Spanish its spelled the same) or Greeks calling Jesus "Ieyousus" are promoting a false prophet. So it's really nice to see that you just insulted your Messiah.

Of course there are details different, I meant the major players, the script, et cetra. What troubles me though is one sides version is several hundred years later than the other side's version. That's the troubling thing to me.

No in the Bible the TWO WITNESSES are killed by the Antichrist. No one knows who those two witnesses are, although you guys like to claim that the two witnesses are Moses and Elijah.

I do not believe your Isa is my Lord Jesus Christ. I know what Isa means in Arabic.

The Bible says one of them is Elijah. And some believe the other is Moses, but many believe it will be Enoch. One Jew and one Gentile. Both these men according to the Bible never died. Moses did die, for him to return he would have to be resurrected. I believe the other will be Enoch for that reason and a few others.

Nice post OP. I am often exposed to Christianity, but less so with Islam. I do indeed see much more that correlates to Christianity than doesn't, in regards to what Islam believes of Revelations.

Informative and interesting. Thanks for sharing.
