Pope Francis, is making the headlines daily as he comes to America, he looks like a fun loving grandpa or your next door neighbor, nothing charismatic or beastly about him. His role has been to restore what little faith in the clergy that’s left. Nearly 40 church properties have been closed in the last couple of years in New York Archdiocese’s including Manhattan the Bronx and Staten Island. Catholic attendance has been on the decline since 1974-2012 down 27%. The decline in priest from 1965 to 2014 is almost half, from 58632 to 38275 in 2014.
Pew Research writes ( Muslim growth and expansion worldwide. Several factors account for the faster projected growth among Muslims than non-Muslims worldwide. Generally, Muslim populations tend to have higher fertility rates (more children per woman) than non-Muslim populations. In addition, a larger share of the Muslim population is in, or soon will enter, the prime reproductive years (ages 15-29). Also, improved health and economic conditions in Muslim-majority countries have led to greater-than-average declines in infant and child mortality rates, and life expectancy is rising even faster in Muslim-majority countries than in other less-developed countries.Muslim expansion is to increase 35% in the next 20 years from about 1.6 billion to 2.2 billion.)
London Progressive Journal writer Ola Onikoyi Jr. “While al-Qaida may have been quashed and destabilised, its existential threats are as potent as before; the group and other radical movement may use more sophisticated methods like chemical weapons in their next operations which may be a major attack. The movement aided by their accomplices may someday hijack nuclear facilities in a way that no Western security or defence apparatus can calculate. They may wage a cyber war by compromising the security of the global web and may fight the war of intellect by disrupting communication infrastructure which has many lives tied to it.”
In Islamic eschatology, the Mahdi is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will rule for seven, nine, or nineteen years before the Day of Judgment and will rid the world of evil.

New world encyclopedia ” Constantinople was initially not considered worth the effort of conquest, but with the advent of cannons, the walls—which had been impenetrable except by the Fourth Crusade for over 1,000 years—no longer offered adequate protection from the Ottomans. The Fall of Constantinople finally came after a two-month siege by Mehmed II on May 29, 1453. The last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI Paleologus, was last seen entering deep into the fighting of an overwhelmingly outnumbered civilian army, against the invading Ottomans on the ramparts of Constantinople. Mehmed II also conquered Mistra in 1460 and Trebizond in 1461. Mehmed allowed three days of looting (a custom at the time) then declared a halt. His plan was to preserve and to further extend the city, where he started building projects that included Mosques and starting to construct the Topkapi Palace. He was known for his tolerance of the Christian and Jewish communities who lived in the city. His first act upon conquest was to proclaim the Shahada, the confession of faith in God and the affirmation that Muhammad is God’s messenger, in Hagia Sophia—which thereafter functioned as a Mosque.
Islam is the opposite of scripture as predicted by Jesus, Matt. 24 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. The Son Of God the only Son God ever begot.
Identification of the Promised Messiah
The Holy Prophet Muhammad(SAW) has prophesied about several events that will occur just before the advent of the day of judgment. Among these, Rasulullah(SAW) has foretold the return of Isa(pbuh) (Jesus), which will materialize, when a one eyed claimant to divinity (Dajjal) will attempt to misguide the humanity into worshipping him. Messiah will descend from the heavens in Damascus, pray behind Imam Mahdi, pursue and kill the Dajjal, destroy the savage and unbelieving armies of Gog and Magog, and bring peace and brotherhood to the world.
Everyone of the people of the book will recognize the truth and accept him only as a Messenger of Allah(SWT); the religion of Allah (Islam) will justly rule the world.
And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e. Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness against them.
There will be no oppression and no need to fight oppressors (war will be abolished) and no need to collect Jizyah (since there will be no non-Muslim people of the Book to collect this tax from). Every human being will be well-off and no one will accept charity. Messiah will perform Hajj and/or Umrah, marry, remain married for 19 years, beget children, and die after living on earth for 40 years. His death will signal the beginning of the last days:
And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way.
Unfortunately, counting on the general ignorance of Muslims regarding this entire prophecy, a few opportunists have laid claim to being the foretold Messiah and have managed to misguide some from the straight path. For some of these individuals (like Mirza Ghulam of India), the claim to being Messiah was just a stepping stone to his claim of prophethood and the creation of a cult which broke away from the religion of Allah(SWT). It is, therefore, at least prudent to learn the truth about this prophecy and avoid falling pray to false claimants that will appear from time to time.
As Muslims, we should remember that the prophecy about Messiah is one that will come to pass. This prophecy, however, does not absolve the Muslim ummah from its duty to strive in the cause of Allah(SWT), oppose injustice, and seek peace and betterment of human condition. Centuries have passes from the time of the holy Prophet(SAW) and there is a good possibility that many more will expire before the advent of the Promised Messiah. Muslims who are negligent in their duty hoping for a savior are committing a grave mistake and are not following the divine decrees ordained in Quran or taught by Rasulullah(SAW
According to these authentic and universally accepted Hadith:
- The Promised Messiah is none other than hazrat Isa bin Maryam(pbuh) (Jesus);
- He is a man of medium height and moderate complexion inclined to the red and white colors and of lank hair;
- He will descend among Muslims, near the White Eastern Minaret of Damascus, Syria, clad in two yellow sheets (dyed with saffron), while leaning on the shoulders of two angels;
- He will pray behind Imam Mahdi;
- He will fight with, chase, and kills Dajjal (the Anti-Christ) at the gate of Ludd;
- Messiah will rule justly according to the Laws of Islam and not Gospel;
- People of the Book will accept him as a Messenger of Allah(SWT) and will embrace Islam (Quran 4:159); subsequently, Cross (Christianity) and Jizyah tax (on non-Muslims) will be abolished;
- He will encounter attack of Gog and Magog and will be victorious;
- Islam and justice will rule, oppression will be eliminated, and no fighting (War) will be needed (will be abolished);
- Everyone will be well off and hatred, jealousy, and grudge will disappear;
- Messiah will perform Hajj and/or Umra;
- He will get married, remain married for 19 years before his death and have children;
- He will die after living on earth for 40 years and will be buried in a grave next to the holy Prophet(SAW). His advent is a sign for the closeness of the day of Judgment (Quran, 43:61);
- Afterwards, all believers will die before the advent of the day of Judgment and the other prophecies will take place.
