When Will The World End In Islam? Major And Minor Signs Before The End Of The World
When Will The World End?
When will the world end in Islam? The world didn't end on 21st December 2012 so when will the world end?
When will the time come for Dajjal to appear (Dajjal is the Anti Christ)? When will Imam Mahdi appear? What do we know about Yajuj and Majuj or Gog and Magog? Should we be concerned after being reminded nearly every other day about the end of world? So many questions, but not enough answers. Well, here is where you'll get it! Especially from an Islamic perspective on the end of the world.
The world will not end suddenly; it will take time and a chain of events that will lead to the beginning of the end of the world. How do i know this and how can i advise you to not worry? I don't. Only Allah knows. People who are taking everyone else for a ride think they know, but if no human being knows exactly when the world started, then how can any human know when the world will end? Do we know when we are going to die? No. What i do know is that there is evidence in the Quran and Hadeeth (sayings of the prophet) in Islam regarding the matter of the the end of the world.
The Quran states, O Prophet the infidels ask you about the time of Qiyamah (end of the world, the Hour). So tell them that it's knowledge is with Allah only. (Surah Luqman)
There are many sequences of events, trials and tribulations to pass before even the start of the end of the world. The date 21st December 2012 was not significant as a date for the world to end, it was a scaremongering tactic and to make money off foolish, weak people. Only God knows when the world will end.
There are many things yet to have happened before the beginning of the end. For example, one of the most fascinating facts from the Hadeeth (Saheeh Al Bukhari) is that 'humans will go into the ancient times where battles will be fought on horses with swords and spears'. So where will the guns, tanks, submarines and fighter planes go? Something may happen so that things like these do not work, maybe? Another fact to remember is that we are still awaiting the arrival of the Dajjal (Antichrist), and not to forget Yajuj and Majuj (Gog and Magog).
We may be faced with another world war, world war 3, as most of the developed and developing countries have got nuclear weapons, and it will only take one small thing to set off another war. This time though there will more serious damage to countries and people. But we cannot rule out the natural disasters that take place and will be taking place.
What Are The Signs Before The End Of The World?
To begin with, if you think about this very carefully, 'people will walk around nude, but they will be wearing clothes' .
How do we interprete the meaning on the above sentence taken from a hadeeth from Sahih Al Bukhari? Well, if we look at any magazine, newspaper, internet site we will see men and women fully nude apart from covering their private parts only, apart from the top shelf magazines and some newspapers with totally nude pictures.
If you go to a shopping centre you will notice women walking around wearing clothes that just cover their upper private parts only, and probably a very short skirt or something like hotpants so that they can show off their legs. Men also walk around in just shorts on beaches, towns and cities when it's good weather. This sequence has definitely come to pass because nudity is very openly shown on billboards, television, newspapers and magazines, and not to mention the internet. There is no 'shame' or 'shyness' in some people and society as a whole.
Below i have listed a sequence of events before the end of the world according to Islam from the Holy Quran and Hadeeth .
I am aware that people reading this may be or may not be Muslim, but i think it is very interesting to learn about the different beliefs about the end of the world, especially when you learn about what the Mayans and other predictions produced by people and groups around the world. We may still be a while away from the world ending, especially not on 21/12/2012. It may be that 2/3 of the world population being wiped out by some natural disasters or nuclear war, but NOT the actual end of the world.

Sequences Of Events To Pass Before The End Of The World In Islam
This is a list of a few sequences of events to pass before the end of the world. Some are Major and some are minor. Most of the minor signs have passed as you may have witnessed things yourself.
(This is in no particular order)
- Passing of the last Prophet and Messenger - One of the major signs before the end of the world will be the passing of the last Prophet and Messenger of Allah (God) on earth. As everyone on earth knows, the last Prophet and Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (pbuh) came and went over 1400 years ago.
- The splitting of the moon - One of the miracles of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was that he split the moon into two parts. Disbelievers claimed it was magic, and did not believe in Islam. This is a hadeeth related to the miracle; Ibn 'Abbas said, 'The mushrikeen (polytheists) gathered around the Messenger of Allah and said, 'If you are telling the truththen split the moon into two parts for us, one half over Abu Qubays and one half over Qu'ayqa'aan (two mountains near Mecca).' It was a night of a full moon, and Muhammad (pbuh) asked his Lord to give them what they asked for. So the moon split into two halves, one half over Abu Qubays and the other half over Qu'ayqa'aan, and the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, 'Bear witness.'
- The Sun will rise from the West - The Sun will rise from it's place of setting. At that time, the Gate of Repentance will be closed forever. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned in many Hadeeths about the Sun rising from the West. Allah will order the Sun to rise from the place of it's setting, so in the morning, it will rise from the place of it's setting. There is recent a scientific discovery which is called RETROGRADE MOTION. This is when a planet overlaps another planet, and it seems as if the planet is slowing down, stopping and then going backwards. This happens with Mars every two years. Allah knows, but this is how it may take place with the Sun.
- Dajjal will appear - Dajjal will be born between the borders of Syria and Iraq to a poor family. Dajjal will have one eye with which he will see, and the other will look like as if it is hanging like a grape. Dajjal means trickster, fraudster, impostor and liar. Dajjal will be all those things. Dajjal will claim to be the Lord of the Worlds and will call on people to believe in it. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, 'Dajjaal is one-eyed, and your Lord is not one-eyed.'Dajjaal is the greatest trial that will ever appear on the face of the Earth! (May Allah portect us from the trial of the Dajjal).
- A killer will not know why he killed, and the one who was killed will not know why he was killed - As we all know, there are continuous wars going on all around the world, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then there are killings which have happened in the two World Wars. In the news every single day we here deaths of so many people in so many countries from bombings, fighting for land and fighting for politics. Click this link and you find out about the numbers of people killed, who probably had no idea why they were being killed.
- The slave woman giving birth to her master - This may be slightly difficult to understand. I will try to make it easy. A woman will be a slave to her own child because the child will be growing free, without a father but the mother stays in bondage. The child's father is a free man, i.e. not married, and gets intimate with a woman. As we all know, there are huge numbers of children who are without fathers due to no commitment to marriage or family. The child will be a burden to the mother and the mother will be ruled by her own child.
- Appearance of women who are clothed yet naked - Women will go out wearing tight and see through clothes displaying the shapes and their private body parts will be showing when they sit and walk. As i have already mentioned above, this is happening right now. If you just step out of your house, and you look around you, you will notice half naked men and especially women walking around. Go to the open shopping centres and you will see the same things in summer. Go to a nightclub, bar or a public house, you will again see with the naked eye the prevalence of 'clothed yet naked women walking around'. And then you get the nude women and men in magazines, newspapers, tv, videos, internet, mobile phones etc... it goes on and on. Pornography is available and promoted openly within all of the medium mentioned above.

End of Part One
Because this is such a huge subject, i have decided to publish it in 3 different parts so you can understand all the events that will lead up to the end of the world. Completing it in 3 parts will make it easy to read and understand too.
The end of the world is not far; we don't know what's going to happen in 2012 if anything, maybe nothing will happen, but remember this, ONLY ALLAH KNOWS WHEN THE WORLD WILL END and we shouldn't be indulging ourselves in thinking about it too much, rather we should indulge in OUR OWN DEATH, because we could DIE any time, but will we be ready for DEATH??? Are we PRAYING FIVE TIMES A DAY??? Are we TRUE MUSLIMS???
