The future of Islam on earth

  1. I used to be happy when I heard that Islam was the fastest growing religion. The prediction that there will be more Muslims on earth seemed like good news. But now, I feel, the statement (and fact) is pretty meaningless (to me at least). Why? It now constantly reminds me of the Prophet’s own prediction in his statement (peace be upon him):

    يُوشِكُ أَنْ تَدَاعَى عَلَيْكُمْ الْأُمَمُ مِنْ كُلِّ أُفُقٍ كَمَا تَدَاعَى الْأَكَلَةُ عَلَى قَصْعَتِهَا قَالَ قُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَمِنْ قِلَّةٍ بِنَا يَوْمَئِذٍ قَالَ أَنْتُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ كَثِيرٌ وَلَكِنْ تَكُونُونَ غُثَاءً كَغُثَاءِ السَّيْلِ يَنْتَزِعُ الْمَهَابَةَ مِنْ قُلُوبِ عَدُوِّكُمْ وَيَجْعَلُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ الْوَهْنَ قَالَ قُلْنَا وَمَا الْوَهْنُ قَالَ حُبُّ الْحَيَاةِ وَكَرَاهِيَةُ الْمَوْتِ

    “The People will soon summon one another to attack you from every place in the same way that a pack calls around its prey” Someone asked, “Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?” He replied, “No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be froth and scum like that carried down by a torrent (of water), and Allah will take the fear of you from the breasts (hearts) of your enemy and cast al-wahn into your hearts.” Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah , what is al-wahn?” He replied, “Love of the world and dislike of death.” (SOURCE: Ahmed)

    It is not merely quantity that is important – but the quality of the Muslims. Most Muslims are one-dimensional Muslims with the barest knowledge of the deen (its aqeeda and its implication).

    We pray that ALLAh, Most HIgh, gives us greater understanding of our own deen and assist us to implement it (i.e. the good that it is), starting with ourselves and our familes first, then our localities (communities) before we try to ‘heal the world’. Ameen.

    Even the non-Muslim ought to be awed by the truth and detail of this prophecy of the Prophet (peace be upon him), given the evidence of modern history and current affairs. #Yet_another_proof_of_the_legitimacy_of_the_prophet

    • Although I don’t disagree with you I still see this from another perspective.
      The prophet (saw) wished to have the biggest ummah on the day of judgment and encouraged Muslimso to get married and have children.
      Let’s do our prophet(saw) proud :).

    • The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Amongst the apostles of Allah, I will have the largest followers on the Day of Resurrection, and I will be the first to knock at the door of Paradise.” Sahih Muslim.

      Christians today are not true followers of Jesus peace be upon him.

    • (SOURCE: Ahmed)

      What is “Ahmed” (besides being a common Muslim name, and another name for Muhammad, coming from Hamd = حمد (praise) and from Surah 61:6, etc.

      Is that another source of Ahadith, besides Sahih Al Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawood, Jami’ Termidhi, Al Nasa’i, Ibn Maja, or Muwatta Malik ?

      Is it defined as “Sahih” by the Muslim scholars?

    • “is that another source of Ahadith, besides…”
      Are you serious by this question?
      It’s Musnad Al- Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal, man! It’s written before all six books!

      Also, most hadiths in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim are found in that book, but from Imam Ahmad’s (RA)Isnad. ( i.e from his road ).
      This knowledge is specific to this Ummah. Alhamdulillah!

      On the other hand, your James says the following!

      Thank God for Islam

    • Christians today are not true followers of Jesus peace be upon him.

      Not true; Christians who are born again (John 3:1-21) are the true followers of Jesus Al Masih, and He is the source of Peace and the Lord of Peace; He gives peace; He does not need peace, since He already is blessed in eternal fellowship as God with the Father and the Holy Spirit; and only through repentance and faith in Him as Messiah-suffering servant-eternal Word-same nature as God the Father, ie, the Son of God, you have no peace.

      John 14:27

      Matthew 11:27-30

      Romans 5:1-11

      The Qur’an only got a few things right about Him (virgin born, son of Mary, Al Masih, did miracles, is “Word” Kalima کلمه , but left out other vitals truths and doctrines about Jesus. As Muhammad and others who compiled Qur’an just heard things from heretics and nominal Christians and Jewish fables. They were unlettered and were just guessing (Qur’an 2:78-79 & 3:78-79 – funny how Muslims accuse Christians of that; but it actually the compilers of Qur’an that did just that, and the proof are all the indications of using fables and Gnostic gospels and Jewish Midrash, rather than actual God-breathed Scripture) and writing things that did not line up with the previous Scriptures.

    • Ken,
      What’s called gnostic gospels were not available for christians. In fact, your own bible were not available for them, so how can they be available for the prophet pbuh?
      Also, Quran is the word of Allah. If it happned and we find any truth in any source matching with Quran, that wouldn’t affect its reliability rather it proves it. Quran matchs with your own bible in some stories and some concepts, and that why we say that your bible contains some truth.
      When we found that some stories about the flood and the ark in Ugartic or Akkadian civilizations’ writings ( before your bible), that gives us an impression that these stories are true regardless the corruption which happened to them.
      The true message of Jesus could be easily scattered in many writings.
      Why do you accept sayings of ( I am) which are only found in the the latest gospel ?
      Also, the true guessing is how & why the church chose these 4 gospels to be the word of God ? There has not been any satesfied answer.
      Quran is presenting itself by very eloquent language to be the word of Allah(sw). Its mircales, its stories , its message, and the language of challenge which it uses crush all the opponents’ claims against it.
      Read it with a genuine attention. May Allah guide you to the truth. When I read Quran, I really feel so sorry for those who prevent themselves from receiving this light.

      Finally, for no doubt that you have nothing to do with Jesus, oh people who are lawless. You are the spirit of Roman paganism, which will have been destroyed in the end of time, and before Jesus will come again.

  3. “there is no peace for the wicked, says the Lord.”
    Isaiah 48:22
    Isaiah 57:21
    Isaiah 66:24 – “where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched” – quoted by Jesus in Mark 9:47-48, describing hell.

    Right in the middle of all that is the only solution – faith in the Suffering Servant Messiah Jesus – Mark 10:45

      “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs, rats and other unclean things–they will meet their end together with the one they follow,” declares the LORD”

      “Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea;”
      Commandments are just garbage according your prophet Paul, let alone to bring peace like a river!

      Isaiah57:15
      “For this is what the high and exalted One says– he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite”
      You don’t believe in The God who lives forever, but in a god who dies for 3 days.

  4. Read Ruth 2 , no where is faith needed in a pagan suffering god. Read psalms where david tells you clearly that God answers those who sincerely call to him. David had no idea of faith in a pagan suffering god.
