The fight between the Muslim’s and Roman’s in the conquest of Constantinople, then the appearance of Dajjal and then the arrival of Isaa (a.s) destroying Dajjal like that of salt dissolving in water in his presence;
041.6924 – Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A’maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people of the earth at that time will come from Medina (to counteract them). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans would say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisoners from amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say: Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethren that you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part of the army), which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah’s eye, would be killed and the third who would never be put to trial would win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as they would be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves) after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: The Dajjal has taken your place among your family. They would then come out, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, he would come out while they would be still preparing themselves for battle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ).
The conquest of Constantinople (Istanbul) by 70,000 Muslims coming from Israel, without bloodshed or even a single weapon being fired. The ‘Takbir’ (“Allah is great”) will be said three times, which results in the lands along the Bosphorus River to slide each time it is said. Then the message of Dajjal’s arrival will be heard and the people will head towards him, leaving their bounty behind ;
041.6979 – Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace he upon him) saying: You have heard about a city the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allah’s Messenger, yes. There upon he said: The Last Hour would not come unless seventy thousand persons from Bani lsra’il would attack it. When they would land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor would shower arrows but would only say:” There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest,” that one side of it would fall. Thaur (one of the narrators) said: I think that he said: The part by the side of the ocean. Then they would say for the second time:” There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest” that the second side would also fall, and they would say:” There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest,” that the gates would be opened for them and they would enter therein and, they would be collecting spoils of war and distributing them amongst themselves that a noise would be heard and It would be said: Verily, Dajjal has come. And thus they would leave everything there and would turn to him.
The Dajjal (Anti-Christ) is not mentioned by name in the Quran directly, but does contain verses pertaining to events and prophecies similar to those mentioned in more detail in the Hadith Collections. So first, I’d like to mention that the Hadith is a commentary collection from scholars whom were in the company of the Blessed Prophet – Hz. Muhammad Mustafa (s.a.w – sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam). The Hadith is regarded as a credible source to accompany and verify the Holy Qur’an, and is considered an important resource for determining the Muslim way of life (the Sunnah). As such, in the Sunni canon, these are some of the main Hadith collections that are used and trusted the most (but not limited to):
- Sahih Bukhari
- Sahih Muslim
- Sunan Abi-Dawud
- Sunan al-Tirmidhi
- Sunan al-Sughra
- Sunan Ibn Malik
The Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim are the most relied upon of the collections. There are some other collections, of which some are not considered sound (sahih) or good (hasan) enough.
The University of Southern California has compiled an excellent Compendium of Muslim Texts and has a database which can be accessed using a search box for particular verses & keywords within the Qur’an and the Hadith. As such, I will cite the verses contained (as is) in the U.S.C. Compendium (as well as others) as my source for any references used in my posts under “My Thoughts On OneEye”. Due to the size of this file, I have compiled the posts into sub-chapters, in order to minimize resources:
- 1.1 – Definition of “Dajjal” in Islam
- 1.2 – Warnings from Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
- 1.3 – Dajjal’s physical and characteristic nature
- 1.4 – Narrations about Ibn-Sayyad accused of being the Dajjal
- 1.5 – The Dajjal’s fitnah (schism, secession, upheaval and anarchy)
- 1.6 – Places where the Dajjal will not be able to enter
- 1.7 – Signs before the appearance of the Dajjal and the End Times
- 1.8 – Protection, refuge and the fight against the trials of the Dajjal
- 1.9 – The end of anarchy and death of the Dajjal
There are many more verses pertaining to the Dajjal and the End Times, but this will be published in further chapters.
Hello to everyone and thank you for your patience regarding the posting of this very important section. After much thought, I have decided to let you all know what my thoughts are on my discovery of OneEye and what it “may” mean (for me anyway).
Please remember that these are my own personal experiences & views and is not intended to reflect anyone else’s experiences & views whatsoever. I’d also like to clarify that I am usually of sound judgment and my approach to anything in life is usually one with pure objectiveness, logic and strict scrutiny, but also holding an open mind to theories that are sound in logic, or justifiable using empirical evidences and reliable sources to support it.
I’m also fully aware that one can make out images of just about anything when looking at the clouds, or even from a grainy wall. The term often used for these kinds of perspective interpretations is called “pareidolia”. I do not think that this is the case, especially after what I went though. It was just way too weird to put it down to just “happenstance”!
After a year of introspection, bewilderment, exponential learning curves with bizarre experiences, which lead from my discovery of this weird graph (“OneEye”); it dawned upon me one day, that everything I had learned and experienced was all for a reason. And a mighty BIG reason too!
What did my discovery of “OneEye”, the mathematical ratio PHI, and my spiritual beliefs have to do with all this?
Well, it dawned upon me one night when I was looking at OneEye once again, when I had a sudden epiphany, where all my knowledge, all that I had learned in that year, coupled with my experiences, flashed in my mind in a split second. That moment was truly one of the most daunting experiences I have ever experienced. This was to me, a personal message from Allah, about something far beyond the scope I had already learned.
I believe, whole-heartedly, that this was a warning and a reminder from Allah (swt), to me personally (at least). That the ultimate message was (and still is) a reminder and a warning;
- Of the imminent arrival of the Anti-Christ (Dajjal). The ‘one-eyed one’, yet a non-cycloptic man. The biggest liar and the most evil of all creations. The false messiah.
- The Dajjal will come (falsely) in peace and “dazzle” the whole world with his knowledge, charm and amazing talents (i.e. musically, artistically, financially, medically, scientifically etc.)
- He will represent all walks of life and all denominations, but later convince even the most ‘hardened believers’ that ‘their own religions were wrong, by presenting strong cases for this. Eventually, he will announce his own religion.
- That he will ultimately reveal his evil intent and declare himself a prophet and then later, a god; via illusionary effects, false promises and empty gifts.
- He will rule the world with a ‘system’ in place, both prior and during his presence.
- His arrival will be “prepared” due to the application and implications of this “system” (which is of great importance to us all right now!), and then welcomed by “certain groups of people” whom are very aware of all this, and know exactly what is needed to be accomplished before his appearance. These people will use (amongst many other techniques); an ancient “craft” which has been very effective in manipulating and controlling the masses.
But he (and his followers) will be defeated, as promised by Allah (swt), so don’t fear folks! Our saviours will be two men;
- The Mahdi – the “rightly guided” one, whom will know how the Dajjalic-system works and will instill justice, abolish certain taxes and usury (financial interest), as well as reuniting the Islamic world).
- Isaa – (may Allah be pleased with him) – Jesus, son of Maryam (may Allah be pleased with her) – Mother Mary. He will personally kill the Dajjal, as only he can.
I will try to elaborate on all the above points and who our saviors will be without getting too in-depth, yet outlining the crux of the main topics. I will also try to show how there is a deep similarity between Muslims and Christians in this belief, but also the differences.
I also find it my duty as a Muslim to be observant and respectful of all the major holy scriptures that our Creator has bestowed upon us; the Tevrat (Torah handed down to Moses (pbuh)), Zebur (Psalms handed down to Davud (pbuh)), Injiil (Gospels pertaining to the life of Isaa (pbuh) through the Apostles), and the noble Qur’an handed down to Mohammad (pbuh)).
Over the next chapters, I will provide extracts from the sources of my study and for you all to see what I have learned along the way. It is, in effect, a connexion to all that is important to me as a person, and I aim to make you all aware of certain “elements” in our world, of which you may, or may not be aware of.
So here is a list of the pages/posts I have prepared, that relate to what I mentioned above, and much more:
Chapter 3. Who Are The Followers Of Dajjal?
Chapter 4. What Does The PHI Ratio Have To Do With This?
Chapter 5. The Arrival Of Dajjal (The False Messiah).
Chapter 6. The Arrivals of The Mahdi and Isaa (a.s).
Chapter 7. My Conclusion.
I will hopefully post these chapters one by one, or all at once, depending on the time I have. I may even add a chapter or two in-between to highlight the Jewish view on all this also. It would be highly appreciated if anyone could let me know if you pick up on any errors or omissions. Any additions or commentary are also very welcome.
A special thanks goes out to the “mysterious” Everchanging for all his help, interest and contributions to EyePhi.com.
Thank you all for your time. Please stay tuned and may you all have a wonderful day/night wherever you are!
Salaam and Peace. 🙂
