Throughout my book, Antichrist: Islam’s Awaited Messiah, I carefully document from numerous classical and modern Islamic Apocalyptic texts, the Muslim belief regarding the end-times. One of the highlights of the book is an introduction to, and an overview of the Islamic Messianic character known as Imam Al-Mahdi. Following are some various quotes from Islamic sources which should help the unitiated begin to understand just who Al-Mahdi is and how he is viewed by a majority of Muslims…
A figure more legendary than that of the Mahdi, the Awaited Saviour, has not been seen in the history of mankind. The threads of the world events have woven many a fine design in human life but the pattern of the Mahdi stands high above every other pattern. He has been the vision of the visionaries in history. He has been the dream of all the dreamers of the world. For the ultimate salvation of mankind he is the Pole Star of hope on which the gaze of humanity is fixedƉn this quest for the truth about the Mahdi there is no distinction of any caste, creed, or country. The quest is universal, exactly in the same way as the Mahdi himself is universal. He stands resplendent high above the narrow walls in which humanity is cut up and divided. He belongs to everybody. For all that and much more, what exactly is the Mahdi? Surely that is the big question which the thinking people all over the world would like to ask.

He will reappear on the appointed day, and then he will fight against the forces of evil, lead a world revolution and set up a new world order based on justice, righteousness and virtueƵltimately the righteous will take the world administration in their hands and Islam will be victorious over all the religions.
- Ayatullah Baqir al-Sadr and Ayatullah Muratda Mutahhari, The Awaited Savior, (Karachi, Islamic Seminary Publications), prologue, p. 4,5
He is the precursor of the victory of the Truth and the fall of all tyrants. He heralds the end of injustice and oppression and the beginning of the final rising of the sun of Islam which will never again set and which will ensure happiness and the elevation of mankindŠThe Mahdi is one of Allahӳ clear signs which will soon be made evident to everyone.
- Muhammad ibn Izzat, Muhammad ҁrif, Al Mahdi and the End of Time (London,Dar Al-Taqwa, 1997), 4
Al-Mahdi will receive a pledge of allegiance as a caliph for Muslims. He will lead Muslims in many battles of jihad. His reign will be a caliphate that follows the guidance of the Prophet. Many battles will ensue between Muslims and the disbelievers during the Mahdiӳ reignŠ
- Abdulrahman Kelani, The Last Apocalypse, An Islamic Perspective, (Fustat, 2003), pp. 34-35
The Mahdi will invade all the places between East and West.
- Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fiӁlamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 50 as quoted by Harun Yahya, The End Times and the Mahdi (Clarkesville Katoons , 2003), p. 96
The Mahdi will be victorious and eradicate those pigs and dogs and the idols of this time so that there will once more be a caliphate based on prophethood as the hadith statesŠJerusalem will be the location of the rightly guided caliphate and the center of Islamic rule, which will be headed by Imam al-MahdiŠThat will abolish the leadership of the JewsŠand put an end to the domination of the Satans who spit evil into people and cause corruption in the earth, making them slaves of false idols and ruling the world by laws other than the Shariӡ [Islamic Law]of the Lord of the worlds. (Emphasis mine)
- Muhammad ibn Izzat, Muhammad ҁrif, Al Mahdi and the End of Time (London,Dar Al-Taqwa, 1997), p. 40
The Prophet said: The MahdiŠwill fill the earth will equity and justice as it was filled with oppression and tyranny, and he will rule for seven years.
- Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 36, Number 4272, Narrated by Abu Sa’id al-Khudri
The Mahdi will offer the religion of Islam to the Jews and Christians; if they accept it they will be spared, otherwise they will be killed
- Muhammad ibn Izzat, Muhammad ҁrif, Al Mahdi and the End of Time (London,Dar Al-Taqwa, 1997), p. 16
Thus, just a taste of who Imam Al-Mahid is according the prophetic traditions of Islam. While there is much more to be quoted and much more to be said, for now, I leave you with these quotes to chew on. For those who have read and studied the Bible, you may already see the parallels between Al-Mahdi and the biblical figure known as the Antichrist. When one looks at the Islamic prophecies and traditions regarding Imam Al-Mahid, one is faced with the obvious questions: Has Satan, through the “prophet” Muhammad, initiated a religion as a response to the true religion of Christ? Has Satan been intimately involved in the inspiration and developement of Islam from its inception? And now for the shameless plug: Buy the book and find out. Antichrist: Islam’s Awaited Messiah.

Welcome to Joel’s Trumpet. The purpose of this blog is to discuss the emerging eschatological paradigm of the Islamic predominance of the Last-Days. That is to say that we will discuss the idea that Islam is and will be the primary vehicle of the Antichrist and his coming system. Through my personal experience with Christian/Muslim interfaith dialogue, I’ve talked with innumerable Muslims about innumerable topics. The following is an e-mail that was sent to the web-site: www.answering-islam.org on the 14th of November, 2004 from an American Muslim. It is a letter that should be posted in every American newspaper editorial collumn to possibley open the eyes of some who continue to doggedly hold onto the notion that Islam is a “religion of peace.” While the following e-mail is certainly not indicative of the attitudes of most Muslims in America, it is also certainly not a rarity. Many may be a bit shocked by some of the content of the letter. Many may even doubt it’s validity. As someone who has recieved death threats for sharing my Christain faith with Muslims, I can testify that this type of individual is very real and that he is far from alone. Welcome to the world of Christian/Muslim interfaith dialogue… Welcome to Joel’s Trumpet…
Subject: Give it up. UR losing to us.
I perused your pathetic little attempt to discredit the Religion of God and his Great Prophet. Truly sad. i am not an apologist. Yes, the Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) committed acts of violence. i have no problems with this. We are muslims, not passivists. Sometimes in life you have to fight. you dont have to stand tall, but you do have to stand up.I do not rectify the violence of terrorists, nor do i rectify the acts of violence made by 2000 years of Christian tyranny and violence. Its destruction of polytheist cultures, its 1000 years of genocidal mission toward jews, and its persecution of free thinkers such as Galileo, Bruno, and Capurnicus.The Eurpoean and American Witch trials, and the “Christian terrorism” of the Irish, the KKK (a Whitye Anglo-Saxon CHRISTIAN terrorist organzation). We should ask the nomadic Avars how much they love the religion of the “Prince of Peace”….oh wait, we cant. They were completely wiped out in a genocidal effort by Charlemagne because they refused to convert to the Paulian Blood Cult you laughingly call “The Way”.
Christianity has been the scourge of this planet. It has caused more pain, torture, and death than any other fanatical movement ever invented.So take a look in the mirror the next time you start to criticise us.
Islam DOES condone violence under the right conditions.If you threaten our community, our faith, or our home and way of life, then we are ORDERED by God to defend what is ours.We do not turn the other cheek, we kick your ass–and all in the name of God. But Islam gives us very stiff guidelines; rules of engagement if you will.You may not kill a non-combatant, a woman, child, or elderly person. You may not destroy trees, buildings,or burn fields. And under no circumstance are you to kill a muslim. This is all in black and white and not up to “interpretation”.Anyone who violates them is going to Hellfire and in violation of Islam.
Your evaluation is correct.We muslims do not play PC games.God gave us laws and rules, just like the jews and we follow them no matter what a group of “enlightenment” philosophers think.That is man-made, not divine law.In Islam to blaspheme the Prophet Muhammad(or any prophet) is to be put to death. Period, As it should be.Unfortunately, we cannot do this in America, or you people would get the just reward you have coming through your Internet efforts. But we still amnage to teach you some respect and manners on occassion.The last man who blasphemed the Holy Prophet to my face swallowed both his front teeth about three seconds later.I took great pleasure in the fact that the next time he spoke blsphemy,it would be with a lisp.
Pagans are to convert or die.Period. As it should be. People such as wiccans,New Agers,and Hindus are parasites to gods planet. Either they should change their ways or accept their just punishment.Christians and jews are People of the Book,and should be tolerated and even protected. But they are misguided, and should be taxed in our countries for having to put up with them.If they speak out against Islam in our countries, they should be punished. Homosexuals. In this country of my birth they are shamefully allowed to parade up and down the streets in front of our children. Some states even try to allow them to marry. The sentence for homosexuality in Islam is death.As it should be. Calipha Omar ibn Kattaub(ra) used to have them thrown off the top of minarets.Do that in San Francisco with 25% of their popuilation off some of those sky scrapers and this nation will drastically improve.Thieves should have their hands cut off and murderers their heads, as it used to be in our country, when we hung and shot horsethieves and killers. Not lock them up and feed them at our expense for the rest of their lives.Run this country with those frontier laws and crime will diminish.
And perhaps someday soon it will. You see, silly Paulian zealots, your religion is about to be outnumbered. By 2025 we will be the majority religion in the world.We have doubled our number in the last 20 years, and in America we now outnumber the jews.Where one mosques wre only found in a few cities just ten years ago, now they are popping up in almost all towns and suburbs. The call to Prayer can be heard over loudspeakers in most large cities now, where in 1980 it would have been unheard of. We are the fastest growing religion in the world, with 20,000 converts in this country a year. 8 out of ten are women, who will marry muslim men, and have muslim children, thus elevating our numbers in this country double or triple in the next 20 years.Islam, whether you like it or not, is the future of this planet, and a future fast approaching.May Allah be praised!
This was inevitable.Christianity is a false religion that idolizes Jesus as a Herculean God in some bizzare and morbid blood sacrifice that has pagan overtones.It comes not from Jesus or God but from a false prophet named Paul who violated the Law of Moses and made a man equal to God.Your Bible is a corrupted text that has been rewritten, added to, and re-edited from the very beginning to match your sick beliefs. This is blasphemy and all who believe it are doomed to hellfire. It has taken us 1425 years to start to over come this blood cults stranglehold on mankind, but at last we near making it a minority opinion.God is finally having his true way prevail.
So you dont like us? You want us “controlled in America” you say? Too bad. We have fredom of religion in this country, and are protected by the 2nd Amendment and the Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Fire us, we sue. persecute us, we get sympathy and thus more converts. Burn down our mosques, we build a new one with the sympathetic donation (often from church groups) and the guilty go to prison.And all the time, we get larger, richer,and become more of an influence in this country.
We are your police, your grocers, your secretaries, doctors, lawyers, school teachers, and neighbors. Your children go to school with our children. Omar and Muhammad are now almost as common in a school roster as Brendan and Michael.
We are here. We are getting larger by the minute. We are taking over this planet. And theres NOTHING you can do about it.
S go ahead and whine, i will enjoy watching your pathetic tantrums as we rule your future.
Or join us. Accept islam for your salvation.Because your children and/or grandchildren probably will.
Peace Be With You,
