These are the days of Armageddon – the final battle between good and evil

April 29, 2009

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Second Coming 1835-1908 says:

Another testimony which shows that these are the days [of
the final battle], is that the sixth millennium since the
birth of Adam, in which the second Adam was supposed
to appear, has also passed. Since the sixth day is the day
of the birth of Adam and, according to the scriptures, a
day symbolizes a thousand years, we have to accept that
the second Adam has already appeared in keeping with
God’s promises, even though he has not yet been fully
recognized.

We also have to believe that the place God
has appointed for his advent is in the East and not in the
West. Since Adam was given an abode in a garden towards
the East (Genesis 2:8), the second Adam must also
appear in an Eastern country in order to maintain his similarity
to the first. Muslims and Christians are both equally
obligated to accept this, unless of course they are inclined
towards disbelief.

Thus, there should be no difficulty in understanding the
truth, for it is quite apparent that this is the time for the final
battle between light and darkness. The forces of darkness
are exerting their utmost power, and it is futile to think that
they can now be subjugated by any other means except
through the light that descends directly from heaven.

Darkness has completely pervaded the world and the
flickering lamp of righteousness is about to die out. Customary
belief, traditional knowledge and superficial
prayers can no longer bring back its faded light.

Can the blind lead the blind? Can darkness dispel darkness?
No! A new minaret has to be built on the earth which rises above
the lowly dwellings, so that the heavenly lamp may be
placed on it, and the whole world may be illuminated by
its light. How can light reach distant places unless it is
placed somewhere high?

Who rules on the Day of Judgment? Allah rules, not Jesus

March 1, 2009

Quotation from Quran:

[43:58] And when the son of Mary is mentioned as an instance, lo! thy people raise a clamour thereat;
[43:59] And they say, ‘Are our gods better, or he?’ They mention not this to thee but for the sake of disputation. Nay, but they are a contentious people.
[43:60] He was only Our servant on whom We bestowed Our favour, and We made him an example for the children of Israel.
[43:61] And if We so willed, We could make from among you angels in the earth to be successors therein.
[43:62] But verily, he was a sign of the Hour. So have no doubt about it, but follow me. This is the right path.
[43:63] And let not Satan hinder you. Surely, he is to you an open enemy.
[43:64] And when Jesus came with clear proofs, he said, ‘Truly I am come to you with wisdom, and to make clear to you some of that about which you differ. So fear Allah and obey me.
[43:65] ‘Verily Allah — He is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. This is the right path.’

So on Judgment Day who does a Muslim follow? Muhammad? He’s dead and buried in Medina. So who will appear to Muslims in Judgment Day to follow? Is it not Jesus?

Hi

Our Protestant friends think that in verse 43:62, given above, Day of Judgment has been discussed only. I don’t agree with them. Quran mentions “the Hour”, an important time or a turning hour, in the history of man, which could be many after when Jesus passed away. For instance advent of Muhammad and or still later advent of Second Coming 1835-1908, in the present times, may also have been referred, I don’t deny that.

I respect my friends here, so, in supposition we take it to be the Day of Judgment, and we would see it in the light of Quran only, as our friends want it this way.

Fortunately both the straight path or the straight way and the Day of Judgment have been mentioned, though briefly in the first or the introductory Chapter of Quran Al-Fatihah or The Opener; and in detail in the later chapters/verses spread over whole of the Quran:

[1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.
[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
[1:6] Guide us in the right path —
[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?submitCh=Or+Go+to+Chapter%3A&ch=1

I think every body would agree with me on this that it has been very clearly and in a very straightforward manner mentioned in the above verses that Allah is the Master of the Day of Judgment, none else.

Jesus is not even mentioned there, and very truly, as no name of any other Messenger has been mentioned therein. Only Allah, the Master would judge everybody including Jesus there as per Quran, in my opinion.

I remember one such place where Jesus’ name has been mentioned. Jesus would be judged by Allah at that hour:

[5:117] And when Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, ‘Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah?’”, he will answer, “Holy art Thou. I could never say that to which I had no right. If I had said it, Thou wouldst have surely known it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy mind. It is only Thou Who art the Knower of hidden things.
[5:118] “I said nothing to them except that which Thou didst command
me — ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them, but since Thou didst cause me to die, Thou hast been the Watcher over them; and Thou art Witness over all things.
[5:119] “If Thou punish them, they are Thy servants; and if Thou forgive them, Thou surely art the Mighty, the Wise.”

http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?submitCh=Read+from+verse%3A&ch=5&verse=116

So, as per Quran, it is very clear that not only Allah would be the Master of the Day of Judgment but on that day Jesus would be admonished and accounted for the wrong beliefs of the Protestants and other Christians. Naturally Jesus would clarify his position only in the matter, in my opinion.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

Thanks

Armageddon has already been started with the advent of Second Coming 1835-1908

Hi

I think with the advent of Second Coming 1835-1908, the Armageddon has already started; not in the shape of any physical war between different religions, but in the shape of Jihad with pen.

Jihad with pen means; to prove with rational reasons and logical arguments the truthfulness and supremacy of one’s own religions over other faiths/religions or non-religions; which could mean providing claims/straightforward text and reasons from one’s own revealed religious book and not from outside.

Second Coming 1835-1908 proved this in an inter-religious conference held in the year 1896 in Lahore, then in British India. One may like to read this intellectual discourse by accessing:

I love Jesus and Mary

Thanks
