(pbuh) DID NOT DIE
Jesus' (Pbuh) Return Will Usher In Global Peace
of the evidence presented so far about Jesus (pbuh) being alive
and his eventual return to Earth constitutes important good news
for believers. Such a historical marvel reinforces believers' enthusiasm
and determination. The increasing urgency with which preparations
for this event need to be made can be seen in a number of events
that are occurring now. As the Qur'an and hadith reveal, we may
expect this event to take place in the near future. The present
period is one in which many signs of his second coming, the End
Times, and the Last Day are taking place. Dozens of such signs have
occurred, and, what is more, one after the other, just as revealed
in the hadith. The waters of the Euphrates river were cut off, there
was a major war between two Muslim nations, extraordinary events
occurred in the skies, solar and lunar eclipses happened during
the month of Ramadan, natural disasters are on the rise, major catastrophes
that have killed many people have taken place, and moral degeneration
and corruption have spread all over the world. (See www.jesuswillreturn.com
for the 138 signs of Jesus' [pbuh] second coming).
Do they not know that God knows their secrets and their
private talk, and that God is the Knower of all unseen things?(Qur'an,
The fact that all of these phenomena are taking
place within a very short period, an even shorter period than that
predicted by many people, indicates that even more historic and
portentous events will occur. By God's leave, humanity will witness
the coming of Jesus (pbuh) at some not-too-distant point. There
is no doubt that even the possibility of witnessing this miracle,
one of the greatest marvels in human history, is an extraordinary
situation. If God permits, many people who read this book will witness
this age and meet Jesus (pbuh). Therefore, it is essential that
all believers accelerate their preparations for this great event
and ignore anything that might hinder their preparations. When Jesus
(pbuh) comes, all Muslims must be in a spirit of union and togetherness,
as a requirement of Islamic moral values. They must strive to intellectually
eliminate all atheistic ideologies, disseminate Islamic moral values
to the greatest extent possible, and call people to the truth in
the finest manner. They must ready themselves so that they can be
his most effective supporters in his struggle against the Antichrist.
It is a great honor for Muslims to be among those who strive to
make the best possible preparations for such a chosen, honorable,
and worthy guest. All believers now living have the possibility
of achieving that honor, and everyone is responsible for making
the best use of this opportunity, for Jesus (pbuh) may arrive very
quickly and unexpectedly.
Many people may wonder what kind of environment there will be when Jesus (pbuh) returns. The hadith provide a great deal of information about this. First, Jesus (pbuh) will make the Antichrist ineffective and end his corrupt system. He will call all people to
live according to Islam's guidance and teachings. After the Antichrist's
system has been eliminated, people will turn in droves to live by
religious moral values. As a result, spiritual and material peace
and comfort will blossom and spread. All conflicts and fighting
will end, and disagreements will be resolved by peaceful means.
Tensions and fears stemming from moral degeneration will give way
to security. Justice will prevail all over the world, and a golden
age when the old wish to be young and the young wish to be more
mature will be ushered in. As there will be no physical and mental
pressures to make people uneasy, and as religious moral values will
be fully implemented, the finest works of art ever known will be
produced and there will be stupendous advances in science and technology.
Wherever people may go in the world, they will encounter beauty,
wealth, and abundance. This golden age is described in great detail
in the hadith, and we shall now look at the delights that Jesus
(pbuh) will bring to the world.
Jesus (pbuh) Will Cause Islamic Moral Values to Prevail
Say: ‘The Truth has come. Falsehood can
neither create nor regenerate anything.'(Qur'an,
He will lead you according to
the Book of your Lord and the Sunnah of your messenger.119
Jesus (pbuh) will come not as
a prophet to the people of Muhammad (may God bless him and grant
him peace), but in order to implement the law of Muhammad (may God
bless him and grant him peace).120
Jesus (pbuh) will descend and
practice our Prophet's (may God bless him and grant him peace) law.121
He will judge by the law of Muhammad
(may God bless him and grant him peace) and follow the Prophet (may
God bless him and grant him peace), even though he is one himself,
and will belong to the people of Muhammad (may God bless him and
grant him peace). He will be one of the people and Companions of
the Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace), and he will
be the most devout of them.122
There is no prophet between him (Jesus [pbuh]) and me. He will certainly descend. Recognize him when you see him. He is of medium height, of a reddish white color. He will wear two sets of yellow dyed clothing. Water will fall from his hair even if it does not rain. He will struggle for Islam. He will make the Antichrist ineffective and then remain for exactly forty years on Earth. Then he will die, and Muslims will perform the prayers for him.123
He will recognize no other [religion]
than Islam . The religion will prevail . Nobody and nothing apart
from God will be worshipped.124
Global Peace Will Finally Exist
Then We sent Our messengers
following in their footsteps and sent ‘Jesus son of
Mary after them, giving himthe Gospel... (Qur'an,
Jesus (pbuh) will be a just judge
and a just ruler among my people ... all grudges and mutual hatred
will be lifted (removed), the sting of every stinging insect will
be removed until a baby will insert his or her finger in snake's
mouth and not be harmed, and the wolf will be like the dog among
the sheep [safeguarding them]. Earth will be filled with peace,
just as a vessel is filled with water; the word will become one
[i.e., only Islam will prevail], and only God will be worshipped;
the battle will put down its weapons [i.e., come to an end], and
the dominion of the Qurayshis will be broken.125
[In his time], there will be
no rancor between any two persons.126
[In his time], peace will prevail
and people will use their swords as sickles. Every harmful beast
will be made harmless ... A child will play with a fox and not come
to any harm; a wolf will graze with sheep and a lion with cattle,
without harming them.127
The people then asked: "O prophet
of God, why will the horse be so cheap?" He replied: "Because it
will never be used for war."128
Jesus (pbuh) Will Bring Justice to the World
Jesus (pbuh) will be a just judge, a fully just imam [ruler] within the community of the faithful. He will break the cross [annul the worship of the cross], kill the pig [inform that eating pork is forbidden], eliminate the tax on non-Muslims, abandon alms, and no value will be placed on either the sheep or the camel. All enmity and conflict will disappear and vanish. The world will be like a silver bowl, and there will be as many plants as in the time of Adam (pbuh).129
They desire to extinguish God's Light with their
mouths but God will perfect His Light, though the unbelievers
hate it. (Qur'an, 61:8)
Jesus (pbuh), son of Mary, will come down as a just judge [ruler] and imam for his nation, by attesting to the truth of Muhammad (may God bless him and grant him peace), and will make the Antichrist ineffective.130
Jesus (pbuh), son of Mary, will
come down as an imam who leads people to the true path and [will
be] a just judge.131
People Will Live in Security
Such security will come to the
world that snakes will graze with camels, leopards with cows, and
wolves with sheep. Children will play with snakes, and the snakes
will not harm them.132
Enmity and hatred between people
will disappear. Snakes and scorpions will have no venom, and a child
will even be able to play with a snake in his or her hand, and the
snake will not bite him or her. A girl will chase away the lion,
and the lion will not touch her. The wolf will stand and wait among
the sheep, as if it were a sheep dog.133
Hatred and enmity among people
will disappear, since their causes will have vanished.134
There Will Be Great Abundance
[When Jesus (pbuh) comes,]
wealth will be so abundant that no one will accept it [alms].135
The son of Mary will return and make the Antichrist ineffective. Then you will live for 40 years in prosperity.136
Everywhere food will cook in
pots, unseen prosperity will dominate, and material wealth will
"Earth will turn like a silver
tray, growing vegetation as it did in the time of Adam (pbuh)
so much so that a group of people will eat a bunch of grapes and
it will satiate them; a group of people will eat a single pomegranate
and it will satiate them; the bull will be sold for a lot of money;
and a horse will cost only a few dirhams." The audience asked:
"God's messenger, why will a horse be so cheap?" He replied: "It
will not be used as a mount for fighting." He was asked: "Why
will a bull be so expensive?" He replied: "The whole land would
Earth's productivity will multiply
to such an extent that if a seed is sown in a solid rock, it will
Even without the plough, the
produce of wheat will multiply seven hundred times, one mudd [a
measure of wheat] becoming 700 mudd.140
Then Earth will be told to
bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing. As a result thereof,
there would grow [such a large] pomegranate that a group of people
will be able to eat it and seek shelter under its skin. A milk
cow will give so much milk that a whole party will able to drink.
A milk camel will give such [a large quantity of] milk that the
whole tribe will be able to drink out of it, and a milk sheep
will give so much milk that the whole family will able to drink
out of that.141
