Upon the presence of Imam Mahdi, the significant indications of qiyâmah initiate. Once the episode of his bay’ah gets to be known to everybody, the Muslim armed forces that were situated in Madinah will go to Makkah.
Hudhayfah ibn Usayd Ghifari, the companion of the Prophet, said,
“Allah’s Messenger came to us all of a sudden as we were (busy in a discussion). He asked: What are you discussing? (The Companions) replied: We are discussing (the subject of) the Last Hour. Thereupon he said: It will not come until you see ten signs. And (in this connection) he made a mention of the ‘smoke’, ‘Dajjal’, the ‘beast’, the ‘rising of the sun from the west’, the ‘descent of Jesus son of Mary’, ‘Gog and Magog’, ‘sinkings of the earth in three places, one in the east, one in the west and one in Arabia’ at the end of which ‘fire would burn forth from Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly’ (i.e., the place where mankind will be assembled for judgment).”
HERE ARE TEN MAJOR SIGNS OF QAYAMAH.
1) Dajjal — the false Messiah or Anti-Christ
2) Gog and Magog,
3) DUKHAN (Smoke)
4) The beast of the earth or land (most likely the holy land)
5) The sun would rise from the west
6) Three sinkings of the earth one in the east
7) One in the west
8) and One in Arabia
9) A fire would come out of Yemen and would drive people to their place of assembly (for judgement)
10) The son of Mary would descend.
The predetermination of Jerusalem is, for example, to provide for Muslims the best certainty and trust that Truth will triumph over deception and persecution. ‘Jerusalem in the Qur’an’ was composed for exactly this reason — i.e., to disclose to Muslims the peculiar world in which we live today. It is a world in which the reason for Islam has all the earmarks of being an act of futility. At the same time having perused the book the peruser would know, whether he or she had not known it, that the truth is very distinctive. When they know for sure that it is the fate of Jerusalem to give an awesome approval of Islam’s case to truth, Muslims ought to have the capacity to summon the quality to oppose the present war on Islam in which the heathen world is attempting to decimate their confidence in Allah Most High.
