“O mankind! Fear your Lord! For the convulsion of the Hour (of Judgment) will be a thing terrible!”
“The day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the torment of Allah.”
Holy Al-Qur’an, Surat Al-Ĥaj, Ayat 1 and 2
On the issue of abortion, the World Health Organization (WHO) has documented that every year, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This fact corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day. In the USA, nearly half of pregnancies are unintended and four in ten of these, excluding miscarriages, ended by abortion. This fact calculates the termination of over 3,000 abortions per day.
The Holy Al-Qur’an states, “Kill not your children for fear of want: We shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin.” Holy Al-Qur’an, Surat Al-‘Isrā,’ Ayat 31
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s messenger as saying: “When the time becomes short knowledge will be withdrawn, civil strife will appear, niggardliness will be cast into people’s hearts, and harj will be prevalent.” He was asked the meaning of harj and said it meant slaughter. (Turmoil or rioting) [Bukhari and Muslim]
The crime of murder is the unlawful death inflicted on a person by another. The conclusion in a global study on intentional homicide made in 2012 indicated that homicides took the lives of almost half a million people, notwithstanding the countless innocent people murdered by a repressive political regime drunk with power.
The large-scale violent upheaval around the globe is unraveling the established political, religious, and social order on the international stage. Diplomats from around the globe are staggering like drunken men from one global mayhem to another in their futile effort to establish order amid the chaos.
Allah’s final revelation revealed, “…and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the torment of Allah.” Holy Al-Qur’an, Surat Al-Ĥaj, Ayat 2
Abu Hurraira told that while the Prophet (PBUH) was talking, a nomadic Arab came and asked when the last hour would come, to which he replied: “When the practice of honoring a trust is lost expect the last hour.” He asked how it could be lost, and he replied, “When rule is given to people who are unworthy of it, expect the last hour.” [Bukhari]
Narrated by Anas: Allah’s Apostle said, “From among the portents of the Hour are (the following):
1. Religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of Religious learned men).
2. (Religious) ignorance will prevail.
3. Drinking of alcoholic drinks (will be very common).
4. There will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse.”
[Bukhari and Muslim]
The preponderance of the evidence of these four profound statements is undeniable. The unlawful and lawful use of alcohol consumption is an acceptable practice in appropriate and inappropriate gatherings. The end to the government-enforced prohibition of the distribution and sale of marijuana is at hand. The illegal use of drugs as an intoxicant has a more devastating effect than that of alcohol. Intoxicants in any form disconnect oneself from their reality and the divine purpose of their being. The Holy Al-Qur’an teaches: “That Allah is the (only) reality, and because whatever else they invoke besides Him is Falsehood; and because Allah, – He is the Most High, Most Great.” Holy Al-Qur’an, Surat Luqmān, Ayat 30
Prevalence of open and illegal sexual intercourse is among the portents of the hour mentioned. We are living in a world where fornication, adultery, and homosexuality are accepted practices.
What Allah (SWT) has condemned is rapidly gaining acceptance in mainstream America and throughout the world. The U. S. Supreme Court refused to get involved in the national debate over same-sex marriage, leaving intact lower court rulings that will eventually legalize the union of gay people. This fact is not the teaching of the Torah (the five books of the Hebrew Bible), the Injeel (Gospel that Allah (SWT) gave to Prophet Jesus) and the Holy Al-Qur’an, which Allah (SWT) bestowed on Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). “Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-knower, All-Aware (of things).” Holy Al-Qur’an, Surat Luqmān, Ayat 34
