Beware! Next Time You See Eclipse, It's Judgment Day
Beware! Next Time You See Eclipse, It's Judgment Day
This prediction is not for all of the mankind. Its only for Muslims, why, I will definitely explain in the same Article, don’t worry and don’t be impatient.
Last time when you heard this rant, it was before 21st of December 2012 when all over the world, people were in fear of the imminent arrival of the “judgment day” on 21st December 2012. A lot of people who believed in the advanced knowledge of the Mayan Civilization were in grave fear of the imminent apocalypse on 21st December just because Mayans ended their calendar on the 21st December 2012 and didn’t prolong it further.
These horrified people were not thinking about any other possibility which could be the reason of that sudden end of Mayan calendar. Mayans might have thought that, “ we already have wasted a lot of time in making a nonsense future calendar up to 21st December 2012 , what’s the use of that, enough is enough” or, they might be out of tools they were using to scribe all the Calendar or the person who was scribing it on stone must have died, who didn’t have anything else to do in his life so he started it as a hobby. Or there is another Far more rational reason “Allah told them the date of “judgment day” as 21st December 2012 but later on changed His mind”.
Oh, if Mayans were not the believers of Allah then who was hmmm, Prophet Muhammad. Prophet Muhammad was not sure about the date of Judgment Day. He surmised or I must say predicted various dates and times for the arrival of Judgment Day. I am going to discuss here a few. In the times of Prophet Muhammad, things used to happen either because of Allah, Angels, Satan, Demons or Jinns.
There was no plausible reason for anything so there was always anyone of them to blame. Behind every happening, there was some good force of Allah or Evil force of Satan. Like when you see swirling wind then its procession of Gabriel. When you see moving clouds then an angel is telling them to beat it. If you see a shooting stars then its defense system of Allah against every approaching demons trying to sneak into heaven.Thank God and thanks to Allah that He does not shoot those missiles on the Satellites launched by America, Russia or any Cellular company otherwise humanity would have suffered losses amounting to billions. How merciful Allah is.
Oh I Again swayed into the Praise of Magnificence of Allah. Come back to the point “End Is Near, why, don’t You Fear”? Am I holding a play card ? Am I kidding? Am I on drugs? Am I drunk ?
No, Not at all. Actually I was skimming through the Books of Ahadith when I found some earth shattering ahadith in “literal sense” as they are about shattering the earth into pieces. Before proceeding further I wanna say this is the irony of fate that when I was a staunch believer in Muslims faith I did not try to read my religious books. Now when I am not fond of Islam, I read it ever than before.
As I mentioned earlier, Prophet Muhammad was not sure about the Judgment Day, so whenever he saw something strange happening, he considered it a sign of the last day or something like that. Don’t forget Prophet Muhammad said all those things which I mentioned hereinabove to be happening because of certain unseen forces. So in the same way about the eclipse, solar or Lunar, he believed that it could be the sign of Last hour or it could be hour itself, lets read and try to learn something.
Narrated Abu Musa:
The sun eclipsed and the Prophet got up, being afraid that it might be the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment). He went to the Mosque and offered the prayer with the longest Qiyam, bowing and prostration that I had ever seen him doing. Then he said, "These signs which Allah sends do not occur because of the life or death of somebody, but Allah makes His worshipers afraid by them. So when you see anything thereof, proceed to remember Allah, invoke Him and ask for His forgiveness." ( Sahih Bukhari 1059, Book reference : Book16, Hadith 18, English Reference: Vol.2, Book 18, Hadith 167)
It was narrated that Abu Musa said:
"There was an eclipse of the sun, and the Messenger of Allah, got up in a rush, fearing that it might be the Hour. He went to the masjid, where he stood and prayed, standing, bowing and prostrating for the longest time that I ever saw him do in prayer. Then he said: 'These signs that Allah (SWT) sends do not occur for the death or birth of anyone, but Allah (SWT) sends them to strike fear into His slaves. If you see any of these things, then hasten to remember Him, call upon Him supplicate and ask for His forgiveness.'"(Sunan Nisai 1503, Book reference: Book 16, hadith 45, English Translation : Vol.2, Book 16, Hadith 1504)
Ok, ok I believe you. It was the time of the last hour but because of the “immediate prayers” of the Prophet, God saved the earth from shattering into pieces, a miracle, ok. But the Prophet was so scared of the Solar or Lunar eclipse that he advised his follower to manumit slaves during eclipse, in order to avoid the wrath of Allah.
No doubt the Prophet ordered people to manumit slaves during the solar eclipse.( Sahih Bukhari 1054, Book Reference: Book 16, Hadith 14, English Reference: Vol.2, Book 18, Hadith 163)
Sometimes even the fast wind was a sign of Wrath of Allah
Whenever a strong wind blew, anxiety appeared on the face of the Prophet (fearing that wind might be a sign of Allah's wrath).( Sahih Bukhari 1034, Book Reference: Book 15, Hadith 29, English Reference : Vol.2, Book 17, Hadih144)
You must be convinced by now that Allah never took His prophet into confidence about happening of certain things. Like Allah never disclosed the date of Apocalypse to his Prophet. Whenever Prophet looked into sky and there was nothing but a clear sky then Allah was happy and whenever some fast wind blew or some eclipse happened then Allah was not happy, but Allah never confided into his beloved Prophet about whether He was happy or not. So prophet was left in doldrums to draw his own conclusions about those unexplainable things, which does not seem nice. When a person( prophet ) took a stand for You ( Allah) by going against the traditional deities of that time then in return as a nice gesture you ( Allah ) must have confided in him. Not good, not at all. Your own prophet is trying to judge your mood by looking at the sky and you are not helping him at all.
While on the other hand You are so attentive that whenever a demon tries to sneak into heaven, you fire a “shooting star missile” and kill that demon. Not good, not at all.
It’s not funny, Prophet Muhammad went against his tribe, went through numerous ordeals, faced the disgust and mockery of the People But Allah did not tell the reason of the Eclipse to His own beloved Prophet. Just because of that, Muslims had to wait 1400 years for the science to explore the real reason behind the Solar or Lunar eclipse. When Allah could tell about how sun sets in the water(Quran 18, 83-86), how it revolves around the earth, how shooting stars are missiles( Quran15, 18), then this secret of Eclipse could have been exposed in Quran. Just because of that one small mistake now Muslims have to listen to the nonsense of the scientists about eclipses. I am badly disappointed. Let’s see what bullshit science has to tell us about eclipses.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes precisely between the Earth and the Sun and its shadow falls on Earth and moves over it. The Earth, Moon and Sun are then aligned when viewed from above the orbital plane of the Earth or from the side.
After this scientific Bullshit, basing on it, if we deem it to be true then one question arises. Quran says that sun revolves around the earth and moon follows the Sun (Quran 91, 1-2). In that theory of flat earth what can cause Lunar or Solar eclipse. As per Quran, Moon has to follow Sun, how can it stop following and come between Sun and earth. How can be the Quran wrong. This is why I am saying, in order to relieve the Muslims of this confusion, Allah could have confided a little bit in His prophet. Not nice at all.
Eclipse was not the only time when Prophet got scared and mistook it for the last hour. Another day He came running to his wife and told about the imminent danger which at that time, the world was facing, Lets read.
Narrated Zainab bint Jahsh:
That the Prophet came to her in a state of fear saying, "None has the right to be worshiped but Allah! Woe to the Arabs because of evil that has come near. Today a hole has been made in the wall of Gog and Magog as large as this." pointing with two of his fingers making a circle. Zainab said, "I said, 'O Allah's Messenger ! Shall we be destroyed though amongst us there are pious people? ' He said, 'Yes, if evil increases
( Sahih Bukhari 3598, Book Refernce : Book 62, Hadith 106, English Reference : Vol.4, Book 56, hadith 797)
Again Prophet is not sure, he saw some hole for certain which scared him as hell. All this happening just because Allah did not confide in His own prophet about the day of Judgment. It was a simple thing to tell that as per lunar calendar, date of Judgment was so and so, as per lunisolar so and so, as per Mayan calendar so and so, as per Chinese calender so and so, as per Babylonian calendar so and so, as per Zoroastrian calendar so and so, as per Hebrew calendar so and so, and as per Gregorian calendar So and so, easy.
Oh it seems pretty messy. But you know, Allah is most intelligent of all in order to avoid this calenderal mess i.e. to mention a single date as per so many calendars, Allah thought up a brilliant solution to this problem and at last confided in his prophet and revealed the secret date of Judgment Day to him. Do you wanna know that date? Yes I have a date for sure this time? Are you ready? Its gonna blow your mind away as it has blown mine. Yeah its hundred percent accurate date of the day of Resurrection, the last hour, the Judgment day, Armageddon, the dooms day, apocalypse yes, it is. Ok lets read the revealing secret knowledge of the ancient books. Lo and Behold.
Anas b. Malik reported that a person asked Allah's Apostle:
When would the Last Hour come? Thereupon Allah's Messenger (way peace be upon him) kept quiet for a while. Then looked at a young boy in his presence belonging to the tribe of Azd Shanu'a and he said: If this boy lives he would not grow very old till the Last Hour would come to you. Anas said that this young boy was of our age during those days.( Sahih Muslim 2953 b, Book Reference: Book 54 , hadith 174, English Reference : Book 41 , hadith 7052)
Anas reported that a person asked Allah's Messenger as to when the Last Hour would come. He had in his presence a young boy of the Ansar who was called Muhammad. Allah's Messenger said:
If this young boy lives, he may not grow very old till (he would see) the Last Hour coming to you.
(Sahih Muslim 2953 b, Book Reference: Book 54 , hadith 173, English Reference : Book 41 , hadith 7051)
Yes, now you are knower of unknown. Now you are the seer of unseen. Now you are the holder of a secret which no one knows. Now you are the member of the executive cabinet of Allah. All you have to do now, is to find that boy of tribe of Azd Shanu’a and wait till he dies, as simple as ABC. No Big calculations, no lofty theories, No complication, simple and astute. Till you find that boy I will beg my leave. Try to digest what you have learned today. For learning more earth shattering secrets keep reading my blog. Till next time, stay blessed and safe.
