Signs of The Last Hour

What we learn from the text which speak of ‘Eesa (peace be upon him)

That 'Eesa (peace be upon him) will undoubtedly descend at the end of time. The texts which state this are many. Denying that 'Eesa (peace be upon him) will descend means denying something stated by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him). Whatever the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said is true, with no element of doubt in it.

The Qur'an also refers to the descent of 'Eesa ibn Maryam (peace be upon him) in more than one place, such as when Allaah says,

"And there is none of the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) but must believe in him ['Eesa (peace be upon him) as only a Messenger of Allaah and a human being] before his death [at the time of the appearance of the angel of death]. And on the Day of Resurrection, he ['Eesa (peace be upon him)] will be a witness againstthem" (Q 4: 159)

Hence, when Abu Hurayrah narrated the hadith about 'Eesa (peace be upon him) coming down as a just ruler, at the end of the report he said:

 "Recite, if you wish, "And there is none of the people of the scripture ... "{Q4:159).

  1. That 'Eesa (peace be upon him) will come to establish the rule of the Shari'ah of the Qur'an. We have' earlier discussed this matter.
  1. He will put an end to all other religions, and  no religion will exist except Islam.

For this reason he will break the cross, which is the symbol of deviant Christianity, and he will kill the pigs which were forbidden by Islam. He will abolish the jizyah; no jizyah will be accepted from any Jew or Christian, and nothing will be accepted from them except Islam.

According to the hadith of Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

 "He will fight the people until they become Muslim, then he will break the cross and kill the pigs, and abolish the jizya. And during this time Allaah will destroy all the religions apart from Islam" (Saheeh Jami')

The fact that he will not accept jizyah does not mean that it is abrogated. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) stated that the Jizyah will be accepted until 'Eesa (peace be upon him) descends, after that it will not be accepted, and nothing will be accepted from the non-believers except Islam.

  1. Widespread prosperity and prevalent peace and security at that time: The verses of the Qur'an and the Hadith that we have earlier quoted showed that great blessings will exist at that time. There will also be peace and security with which Allaah Will honour His slaves during those days. Hatred and Will be removed, and people will unite in following the word of Allaah.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) made mention in a lengthy hadith some of the things that will happen as a result of the descent of 'Eesa ibn Maryam. Some which include;

the disappearance of enmity among the people, every poisonous animal will have its venom removed, he will fill the earth with peace, there will be unity and none will be worshipped but Allaah and there will be no more war ... " (Saheeh al-Jaami' as-Sagheer)
