DOOMSDAY 2012 - A creative fiction
DOOMSDAY 2012 - Who believe ?
If you type the words Apocalypse 2012 or Doomsday 2012 on your browser - or Kiamat 2012 in Indonesian, there would appear many websites, pages or groups, blogs which try to expose or reject the issued phenomenon.
If we look at the spread of the issue positively, in fact there are also some good sides at it, especially this will impact to those who are weak-minded and not / less understanding on the teachings of Islam; they will try to realize their ambitions before facing their death at the 12 seconds past 12 minutes past 12 on the 12 December of 2012; or on December 21, 2012 as said by somebody else who said it based on the Mayan calendar. For those ones who immerse in sins, the resurrection issue hopefully will make them quickly repent and return to their nature as Muslims. But, Does the process of the doomsday as easy as that ? No, not at all.
If we take the guidance from the Hadith of Nabiyullah Muhammad Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam, apocalypse that will destroy this earth and all universe, only will happen apparently after the coming of two kinds of signs: The Minor Ones and The Major Ones.
The Minor signs which identify the impending doom at the moment is very much visible, such as:
- The act of displeasing the God happens a lot everywhere;
- The number of women much more than the number of men.
- Most of humans are proud of the sins they have done (such as women who would gladly sell out their private parts of body at mass media and in front of crowded people and reasonable to do it all in the name of beauty (art); they replace their shame with pride in sins;
- Islamic law is questionable;
- Many children are born out of marriage or preceded by a process of marriage;
- Many Islamic leaders are competing to find the world luxury by selling the verses of Al-Qur’anul Kariem and the Hadith Nabiyullah Sallalaahu 'alaihi wasallam.;
- Many women rebel against their husband (do not respect or appreciate their husband);
- Many children do not longer respect and appreciate their parents;
- Muslims are a lot in number but few in quality; do not have existence and honour in the eyes of the world - oppressed by their enemies, like foam on the water surface;
- Dishonest and hypocritical people are everywhere, it is difficult to differentiate between friends and foes - everything could have turned around abruptly because of a temporary interest;
- Many traders cheat - which reduce the scale, the deceptive quality of goods, wares mixing, which mixes the good with the bad .... home to get money.
- Men dress in women appearance and so is the vice versa – Woman dress in men appearance. Especially for the latter, it means that at the end of this age we can see, women are happy to use the aurat (genetalia) of men which is from navel to knee (even, in some places this condition is much worse, they are proud of showing themselves in very minimal clothes - only in underwear, or naked); while in the other side, men dress tending to cover the entire of their body by wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirt.
While the Major signs of impending apocalypse, until now there has not been visible, such as:
- Imam Al-Mahdi is born into the world and hold (be the King) of Saudi Arabia Kingdom.
- Dajjal La'natullah will appear and rule the world in the backing of the devil and their buddies - for 40 days. During his 40-days, Islamic people who are holding the true belief would be hunted down and killed; meanwhile, those ones who are willing to become their followers (slaves) will live securely. In those days, the things that have been mentioned in the Minor signs above are directed by Dajjal La’natullah to be happening. Even though he only gets the chance to rule the world for 40 days, but Allah gives miracle to this human to control his first day coming as long as one year; his second day as long as one month; his third day as long as one week; and the rest ones like the common ones. He will be very powerful. He will be given the power to bend down everyone that he face and he can go wherever on this earth in one second. He will use his first day to visit and invade all parts of this world; on the second day, he will do more efforts to bend down the spots that he can not accomplished in the firs day, these are the places whose people hold Islamic dogma firmly ; and on the third day, he continues to the places whose Muslims are very faithful. And the rest 27 days, he only will control and visit his people who adore him all over the world. He will bless everyone who face his as the Almighty and will torture the ones who are not obedient to his command.
- Since his (the Dajjal) coming, Imam Al-Mahdi will have mobilized the strength of all Muslims to fight against this cursed Creatures and his cronies, but they have not been able to kill this cursed man.
- In the late 39th day, Nabiyullah ‘Isa ‘Alaihissalam then lowered and given the strength to kill Dajjal La’natullah along with all his followers (assisted by Imam Al-Mahdi with all his army).
- Dajjal will be killed in the 40th day of his coming, so will all of his slaves and followers.
- After this era, the world will ruled by Imam Mahdi and Nabiyullah 'Isa 'Alai his Salaam.
- Then Ya'juj and Ma'juj and their people will make a chaos all over the world. They slaughter everyone which they meet that a huge number of corpses will scatter around on this earth.
- Imam Mahdi and Nabiyullah 'Isa 'Alai his Salaam will beg to Allah to be granted the power to handle these creatures; and they will get it and again managed to kill Ya'juj and Ma'juj.
- In the next 7-9 years, the world will be safe - Islamic law will be enforced by Nabiyullah 'Isa ‘Alaihissalam. Prosperity will occur throughout the corners of the earth. Everybody is rich, no poverty. No crimes take place during this era. Many humans and Genies in droves to become adherents of Islam. And, it will be in this time Imam Al Mahdi will pass away and the reign of Nabiyullah ‘Isa ‘Alaihissalam, he will be called by Allah as a human being, pass away too (not saved and taken to the sky like the time he still led Bani Israel before the prophethood of Nabiyullah Muhammad SAW). Just unfortunately, since it is so safe in the world, then re-emerged many sinful deeds of the humans living at that time.
- After the death of these two figures, the sun will rise in the west and set in the east. Once this happens, repentance and charity from the people who are aware of so near the end will be rejected - not accepted anymore. Charitable acts are still acceptable from the ones done by the people who remain in the belief of Islamic Aqeedah.
- The next step, two huge figures like anilmal, will emerge on the earth blow two kinds of win; the one blows to the muslim will let them to their death instantly, meanwhile the wind which is blown to the one who are not Muslim will change their skin into black. It will be these people, Non- Muslim people who will see the Doomsday directly.
- Not long after that, the trumpet is blown - and there will be apocalypse in a very real sense - all of which will be destroyed, totally - nothing remain. All creatures will be died; humans, animals, plants, genies, satans, evil (Iblis), and also all angels. The last creature who will be died is Angel Izrail - the Angel of death.
After this moment, the only One which will remain alive is Allah, the Almighty, the Ruler of the universe. He will let every thing as it is, and then give them their soul back to be taken into the Judgement Day.
Special attention marks to the sixth sign (the sun rises in the West and sets in the East), if we look at the condition of the world at this moment, in abstract reality - actually has started happening. How not, almost all humans on the earth – included the ones from Muslims countries orient much to the West (Western countries - such as the United States, Britain, etc.) in carrying out their every day life routine - westernized life. While the oriental philosophy of life is thrown away and is considered as ancient, old-fashioned. If we look at the sign abstractly, the sun has been already rising in the west and setting in the east.
Based on the above exposure, those ones (especially Muslims) who know the two kinds of the signs of the apocalypse in question (which will take place after the appearance of the Dajjal) will not believe at all the spreading of false story about the 2012 apocalypse. It is nonsense.
Moreover, if we analyze the stop of the making the calendar by the Mayan Tribe, there must have been many possible reasons for that:
- Maybe the one who designed the calendar had passed away before he continued the calendar.
- Maybe he suffered bad illness that the project of the Calendar stopped.
- Maybe there was something else happened (like war, riot, and so forth) that hinder the continuity of the project.
- Nobody else could continue the project.
The main point is, there will be no doomsday in 2012; but to some predictions which say that there will be a great or some great disasters in 2012, I can not reject it totally – maybe yes, maybe not, for natural disaster can not be predicted accurately. Since this universe and everything in or around it belongs to Allah – no one can change what Allah will change. If Allah say something must happen, it will happen instantly; but if Allah say it does not happen, no matter how all creatures in this world or universe gather to realize it, it won't happen. Allahu Akbar...!
