A response to the claims of Cevat Aksit who says, ''Right now there is no anarchy and terror in the world. The portents of the End Times have not come about.''
That is why no one can ever tell when Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come. Because once he appears, we see its end; we will be able to see it. It is a concealed knowledge. What we know so far; our information reveal this. That is why, when he comes, the scholars, the virtuous, mature people of this ummah of our Prophet (saas) will grab him. Even if he is not seen, everyone will already hear him. There is no room for excitement.
May Allah also not leave us in those days. Why? Because they are days of disaster. Days when people will seek a shelter to get into. Note that Alhamdulillah, we are speaking, reading the hadith, performing our prayers. That is why it is not yet so close.
Allah shows us we are in the End Times by means of innumerable signs. For the first time ever, 90% of the world is essentially irreligious. Darwinist, materialist thinking and the ideologies of communism, fascism and imperialism that developed out of them have drowned the world in blood. Nearly all the Islamic world is in a state of captivity. Reports of martyrdom, torture and persecution come from the Islamic world on an almost daily basis.
Our brothers from East Turkestan have been subjected to countless acts of torture and degradation over the last 60 years. Some 40 million Uighur Turks have been martyred to date. And they are still suffering the most terrible persecution...
More than 900 Muslim towns and villages have been wiped off the map in Palestine. Four million Palestinians are still living as refugees... Children are shot on their way to school, and homes are demolished as families sleep in their beds. People are living as exiles in their own lands.
Three quarters of the population in Chechnya were martyred in the space of two years. Memories of women, children and old people being martyred as tanks were driven over them are still fresh in our minds.
Muslim blood is being shed almost daily in Afghanistan. 20,000 civilians lost their lives in the first four months of the occupation and to date more than 2 million of our Afghan brothers have been martyred.
In Iraq, 1.2 million people have lost their lives since 2003, and 4.5 million have had to leave their homes.
Around a million Muslims are living as refugees in their own country in Pakistan.
Some 100,000 Muslims, who make up approximately 15% of the population of Myanmar, have lost their lives...
Bosnian Muslims were recently subjected to a ruthless genocide, in the middle of Europe and before the eyes of the world...
It is incompatible with the Qur’an and the Sunna to ignore this corruption, to disregard the bloodshed and turn a deaf ear to the cries of persecuted Muslims. At a time when the way of the dajjal is devastating the entire world, every Muslim has the responsibility to desire and support the way of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and to strive for Islamic Union.
