Muslim View of Antichrist

I just returned from a business trip to Seattle. While I was there I took a taxi and the driver, wearing all white and a white fez, was playing a tape of Arabic singing. It really was quite beautiful, entrancing even. He turned it down for my directions and I asked him what it was and he said it was the Quran in song. I complimented his musical taste. More importantly this opened a dialogue. We talked about religion for the 15 minute drive then for 10 more after I paid. He said that everything I said was right and that he agreed. And he said that I know more about the reality of Islam than he himself, a devout follower, does. We parted on the best of terms with me giving him the URL that he could go to for more information about Islam from our perspective.

One thing that did stand out also is what his concept of the “antichrist” is. He believes that the antichrist will appear soon, very much in the same way as the Christians have come to expect, as a super influential, charismatic, leader who will deceive the masses and start world war 3, yada, yada.

I pointed out that the only place, in any of the revealed scriptures from around the world, that the word antichrist appears in the Bible, New Testament, first and second letters of John. I quoted one of them, where John wrote,

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are their many antichrists,”
1 John 2: 18.

With very little help he could see that “antichrist” is not one man, who will arise, yada, yada! Nay! Rather, that the antichrist is a whole group, of many people, and who existed at the time of John already! So it can’t be the other way, the way the “Christian evangelists” explain it, it is not logical and is not in accord with what the scriptures and John say about antichrist.

Well, where did all those antichrists at the time of John go to? No where, the group multiplied and is a strong force in the world this day, to strong! First though we must ask, what is the definition of antichrist?

Anti means “opposed to” and the definition of the word Christ is, “An anointed male lineal descendant of King David.” This Muslim brother/taxi driver thought about that and accepted it as true, which usually indicates a pure heart and could be his saving grace and ticket in to heaven should he be raptured up in the thermonuclear clouds that are destined for that wonderful city.

The antichrist is anyone and everyone who opposes the definition of the word Christ, preferring the deified god-man Jesus over the prophet and Manifestation Jesus. Especially culpable and at the front of the pack are all Trinitarians who allow polytheism, that is, claim that Jesus is equal to God as he is part of a triune god, the trinity, thus they must be opposed to Jesus being a genealogical descendent from King David in an unbroken father to son line.

I welcome all comments and discussion.

    Anti-Christ is definitely a confusing concept and means different things to different people and religions. The Baha’i concept in reference to descendant of King David is obviously one i have adopted in meaning. If i equate Christ to Love then a person who is Anti-Love fits the bill. Didn’t Nostradamus indicate 3 anti-Christs with Napolean, Hitler, and ?? Each of these people have instilled fear as the means to govern and rule which is opposite of love. In our modern times we have a leader in America who also promotes the same fear madness to the masses. Or is the reference to the Baha’i Faith and its denial of the succession to the throne of King David? There were anti-Christ after Jesus death the 1st Christ. It is appropriate today in the case of Baha’u’llah the 2nd Christ. We live in mysterious times. The religions do not agree on the same perception of God either though we all believe in the same One Invisible Being. God is an amazing Creator and progressive revelation is the key to understanding.

    the anti-christ belief in islam is not derived from the new testament, rather from the sayings of the prophet muhammad, the hadith (comoros as i understand it is a muslim majority country). muhammad, and muslims after him, regard the previous scriptures to be corrupt, and not worth reading, the qur’an contains all the good in them, and corrects their mistakes. in islam, the anti-christ is known as ‘al-maseeh ad-dajjaal’, or ‘the lying messiah’/anti-christ. muslim beliefs about him are similar to those of christians, but get more specific as to how to recognize him, he will have one eye (the other will be blemished), and every true believer, even if illiterate, will be able to clearly distinguish the word ‘kaafir’, ‘disbeliever’, on his forehead. jesus descends from heaven to kill him, and then rules the world by the qur’an until he dies.

    Anti-Christ is in the spiritual nature, it does’nt say anti-Jesus or anti-Baha’u’llah. Could be any Government that opposes a man of God and the messenger he represents at the time. As i had read, the symbal of the beast is Liberty, we all know where the statue is located.

    What if it is already here? take a look:
    it is just one of the thousands of campany, that chosen a beast on most if not all it’s products.

    The series called “The Arrivals” also shows so many proofs that the Anti-Christ is either among us already or will be very very soon. (google them)

    In the ancient world time was considered to be cyclical just as astrological event occur in cycles.

    In my own opinion, a man with one eye, and one eye blemished refers to the ancient god Horus, the son of Osiris and ISIS. He was known as a sky god with a left eye representing the sun (solar energies and the Eye of Ra) and the left eye representing the moon (lunar energies and the Eye of Horus).

    It is said that his left eye was wounded, explaining why the moon is less bright than the sun. Horus is defeated by Set (darkness) and when he dies his God status is retained as God of the underworld, thus representing the time that the sun spends under the earth. Horus is resurrected (read: reincarnated) as Osiris (Christ).

    Osiris and ISIS again give birth to Horus, and the cycle starts again.

    [This is my interpretation of the Egyptology that I have read thus far. Your interpretation may differ as the stories differ from region to region and from one time period to the next.]

    Anti-Christ may well be one and the same as the Christ, temporarily ruled by lunar energies rather than Solar energies.

    In Hindu the gods have many Avatars. A god or goddess may come as a Savior, and come back as a destroyer. Even Avatars can forget that they are divine, just as we do.

    The antichrist in Islam is ad-Dajjal, and should not be confused with the Antichrist in the Bible. Al-Mahdi and Isa are the ones that sound just like the descriptions of the Antichrist and False Prophet in the Bible. see http://al-mahdi.atspace.com/al-mahdi.html and http://al-mahdi.atspace.com/isa.html for detailed analysis.

    The concept that there is only ONE GOD has been the message of all the prophets.No authentic messenger of God ever shouted on streets that Jesus, the son of Mary is a part of the Creator. No Holy Scripture ever made revealed that Jesus told them that he is God, that he created the heavens and Earth.But, most of the scriptures ever kept and not made publicly told us that Jesus was just a prophet and a man. With this, we can perceive that Christ is a just a creation- a man born from the mighty power of the Creator. And finally,anyone who submit himself and proclaim Jesus as god is a clear manifestation of being an anti-christ. Clear but shocking!

    By Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel

    It will be learned with no mild surprise that the Quran has only and exactly translated the term THERMONUCLEAR as is applied by the scientist himself when it (the Quran) says, that the nuclear energy is a fire which leaps up over the hearts. How is it? It is thus: The word Nuclear is the adjective of nucleus, which means heart, thus the word nuclear means something connected with heart. The complete term that is Thermonuclear would then mean a fire which is related to the heart. The scientist has coined this term with amazing aptness and has indeed said exactly what the Quran has said in this respect. The scientist says, “a fire related to the heart”. The Quran says” a fire which appears over the hearts”. Such an act of anticipation on the part of the Quran would seem nothing short of a marvel. We prove the view of the Quran by merely uttering the term nuclear indeed.
    The nuclear radiations, Alpha, Beta, Gamma rays and neutrons are nicknamed by the scientists as bone seekers, because of these radiation’s tendency that of reaching the bones through the blood steam. There they attack the bone marrow. Now the function of the bone marrow is to generate the blood. They render the bone marrow incapable of generating blood; they attack the blood and destroy its red as well as white corpuscles, depriving it of its nourishing qualities, and rendering it rather a source of torment to the heart due to its poisoned state. Now, the relation of the bone-marrow and the blood, and further the relation of blood and the heart is well known. The attack of the radiations therefore is being directed towards the heart. The next attractive target of these radiations happen to be all the blood-forming organs of the body. The connection of these organs with the blood and through the blood with heart also is well known. Again the symptoms of radiation sickness are leukemia, a disease of blood, hemorrhages, that is blood-leaking, also a disease of the blood, fever; also connected with blood, nausea and vomitting also linked with the heart. The radiations by attacking the blood-forming organs in truth play something of a war strategy with the heart. They besiege it and stop its blood supplies, by destroying the existing quantities, and preventing the replenishment by destroying the blood producing capacities of blood-forming organs, till at last the heart succumbs to disease and starvation and expires in acute agony. Further, it is now known, that all the multi-cellular organisms with more perfected heart and lungs and more elaborately developed circulatory and respiratory systems are far more prone to the effects of radiations than all the unicellular organisms with less perfect heart and lungs and less elaborated circulatory and respiratory systems. This proves a decisive affinity of radiations for the heart and all that is directly connected with it. It has also been discovered that in the absence of oxygen, the action of radiations is noticeably retarded. Now the connection of oxygen with his heart, in virtue of its role as the purifier of blood in the lungs is a fact of common knowledge. Lastly the recent researches on the effects of radiations have revealed that, brain, nerves and muscles are the least sensible parts of the body to the effects of radiations. This again would establish the fact of radiation’s greater relative affinity for the heart and all that is more directly connected with it. Again radiations attack the nuclei (hearts) of atoms in inanimate matter and cause transmutation of atoms, while in the living body they attack the cell nuclei and break the chromosomes thereof.
    Last but not the least is the fire of discontent. Frustration and anxiety, which today are furiously raging in every heart without exception, throughout the whole vast world. This fire, although it has in every age, area and epoch, pestered and tormented poor human heart, yet in this particular, modern age of atomism, due partly to the peculiar set up of this exclusively materialistic age, and partly due to the absence of faith and moral and spiritual values, it has assumed alarming proportions. To the problems of necessities of life are to be added of atom bombs, and even more than the atom bombs that of nuclear radiations. Worst even is the plight of those to whose lot have fallen more thorns but little fruit or flower of modern science and its progress. It is not without some aptness, if the first cry emitted by the new born baby at its birth be interpreted in this age saying’ ALAS FOR ME WHAT SHALL I DO TO SAVE MY BODY. HOW SHALL I EVER EXIST TO SOLVE THE PAINFUL RIDDLE OF MATERIAL NECESSITIES IN A WORLD POISONED BY RADIATIONS”. While first cry of a baby born in some pre-modern age, generally could have been interpreted as saying ‘ALAS FOR ME WHAT SHALL I DO TO SAVE MY SOUL IN A WORLD FULL OF SNARES, AND PITFALLS.OH. HOW SHALL I BE ABLE TO GO SAFELY BACK TO MY HOME IN HEAVEN, WHENCE I CAME”.

    About Allama Muhammad Yousaf Gabriel

    Mankind is facing danger unprecedented in history. The scientists have judged it as the total annihilation of life on earth, man animals and plants. But it is more than that it is the atomic hell. The author of Gabriel’s Islamic Bomb has in a missionary zeal from 1942 to 1982 made extensive studies and researches in the relative subjects of atomism and Quran, bible, sciences and philosophies. This present volume is one of the fourteen, written on the topic.

    Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel is a symbol of universal peace, a model of simplicity, sincerity, sincerity and devotion, a colossal giant of ancient and modern learning, a philosopher, a scientist, a linguist a theologian, a poet and orator. He has a mission to save this world from the nuclear ruin the painful and disgraceful atomic doom of adamities. He wants to warn the mankind against the atomic hell and tries to guide them towards safety, while the appeals of the scientists and philosophers have been failed. The author was born on 17th February 1917 in khabekki village Soan Sakaser, Khoshab (Pakistan). It is very interesting thing that the author of such books has not attended any school, college or university from where he should get this knowledge.
