Jesus' (Pbuh) Return Will Usher
In Global Peace
of the evidence presented so far about Jesus (pbuh)
being alive and his eventual return to Earth constitutes
important good news for believers. Such a historical
marvel reinforces believers' enthusiasm and determination.
The increasing urgency with which preparations
for this event need to be made can be seen in
a number of events that are occurring now. As
the Qur'an and hadith reveal, we may expect this
event to take place in the near future. The present
period is one in which many signs of his second
coming, the End Times, and the Last Day are taking
place. Dozens of such signs have occurred, and,
what is more, one after the other, just as revealed
in the hadith. The waters of the Euphrates river
were cut off, there was a major war between two
Muslim nations, extraordinary events occurred
in the skies, solar and lunar eclipses happened
during the month of Ramadan, natural disasters
are on the rise, major catastrophes that have
killed many people have taken place, and moral
degeneration and corruption have spread all over
the world. (See www.jesuswillreturn.com
for the 138 signs of Jesus' [pbuh] second coming).
Do they not know that God knows their
secrets and their private talk, and that
God is the Knower of all unseen things?(Qur’an,
The fact that all of these phenomena
are taking place within a very short period, an
even shorter period than that predicted by many
people, indicates that even more historic and
portentous events will occur. By God's leave,
humanity will witness the coming of Jesus (pbuh)
at some not-too-distant point. There is no doubt
that even the possibility of witnessing this miracle,
one of the greatest marvels in human history,
is an extraordinary situation. If God permits,
many people who read this book will witness this
age and meet Jesus (pbuh). Therefore, it is essential
that all believers accelerate their preparations
for this great event and ignore anything that
might hinder their preparations. When Jesus (pbuh)
comes, all Muslims must be in a spirit of union
and togetherness, as a requirement of Islamic
moral values. They must strive to intellectually
eliminate all atheistic ideologies, disseminate
Islamic moral values to the greatest extent possible,
and call people to the truth in the finest manner.
They must ready themselves so that they can be
his most effective supporters in his struggle
against the Antichrist. It is a great honor for
Muslims to be among those who strive to make the
best possible preparations for such a chosen,
honorable, and worthy guest. All believers now
living have the possibility of achieving that
honor, and everyone is responsible for making
the best use of this opportunity, for Jesus (pbuh)
may arrive very quickly and unexpectedly.
Many people may wonder what kind
of environment there will be when Jesus (pbuh)
returns. The hadith provide a great deal of information
about this. First, Jesus (pbuh) will slay the
Antichrist and end his corrupt system. He will
call all people to live according to Islam's guidance
and teachings. After the Antichrist's system has
been eliminated, people will turn in droves to
live by religious moral values. As a result, spiritual
and material peace and comfort will blossom and
spread. All conflicts and fighting will end, and
disagreements will be resolved by peaceful means.
Tensions and fears stemming from moral degeneration
will give way to security. Justice will prevail
all over the world, and a golden age when the
old wish to be young and the young wish to be
more mature will be ushered in. As there will
be no physical and mental pressures to make people
uneasy, and as religious moral values will be
fully implemented, the finest works of art ever
known will be produced and there will be stupendous
advances in science and technology. Wherever people
may go in the world, they will encounter beauty,
wealth, and abundance. This golden age is described
in great detail in the hadith, and we shall now
look at the delights that Jesus (pbuh) will bring
to the world.
Jesus (pbuh) Will Cause Islamic Moral Values to
Say: ‘The Truth has
come. Falsehood can neither create nor
He will lead
you according to the Book of your Lord and the
Sunnah of your messenger.119
will come not as a prophet to the people of
Muhammad (may God bless him and grant him peace),
but in order to implement the law of Muhammad
(may God bless him and grant him peace).120
will descend and practice our Prophet's (may
God bless him and grant him peace) law.121
He will judge
by the law of Muhammad (may God bless him and
grant him peace) and follow the Prophet (may
God bless him and grant him peace), even though
he is one himself, and will belong to the people
of Muhammad (may God bless him and grant him
peace)… He will be one of the people and Companions
of the Prophet (may God bless him and grant
him peace), and he will be the most devout of
no prophet between him (Jesus [pbuh]) and me.
He will certainly descend. Recognize him when
you see him. He is of medium height, of a reddish
white color. He will wear two sets of yellow
dyed clothing. Water will fall from his hair
even if it does not rain. He will fight with
people for Islam. He will slay the Antichrist
and then remain for exactly forty years on Earth.
Then he will die, and Muslims will perform the
prayers for him.123
He will recognize
no other [religion] than Islam … The religion
will prevail … Nobody and nothing apart from
God will be worshipped.124
Global Peace Will Finally Exist
Then We sent Our
messengers following in their footsteps
and sent ‘Jesus son of Mary after
them, giving himthe Gospel... (Qur’an,
will be a just judge and a just ruler among my
people ... all grudges and mutual hatred will
be lifted (removed), the sting of every stinging
insect will be removed until a baby will insert
his or her finger in snake's mouth and not be
harmed, and the wolf will be like the dog among
the sheep [safeguarding them]. Earth will be filled
with peace, just as a vessel is filled with water;
the word will become one [i.e., only Islam will
prevail], and only God will be worshipped; the
battle will put down its weapons [i.e., come to
an end], and the dominion of the Qurayshis will
[In his time],
there will be no rancor between any two persons.126
[In his time],
peace will prevail and people will use their swords
as sickles. Every harmful beast will be made harmless
... A child will play with a fox and not come
to any harm; a wolf will graze with sheep and
a lion with cattle, without harming them.127
then asked: "O prophet of God, why will the horse
be so cheap?" He replied: "Because it will never
be used for war."128
Jesus (pbuh) Will Bring Justice to the World
will be a just judge, a fully just imam [ruler]
within the community of the faithful. He will
break the Cross [of the Christians], kill the
pig, eliminate the tax on non-Muslims, abandon
alms, and no value will be placed on either
the sheep or the camel. All enmity and conflict
will disappear and vanish … The world will be
like a silver bowl, and there will be as many
plants as in the time of Adam.129
They desire to extinguish God’s
Light with their mouths but God will perfect
His Light, though the unbelievers hate
it. (Qur’an, 61:8)
son of Mary, will come down as a just judge
[ruler] and imam for his nation, by attesting
to the truth of Muhammad (may God bless him
and grant him peace), and will slay the Antichrist.130
son of Mary, will come down as an imam who leads
people to the true path and [will be] a just
People Will Live in Security
will come to the world that snakes will graze
with camels, leopards with cows, and wolves with
sheep. Children will play with snakes, and the
snakes will not harm them.132
hatred between people will disappear. Snakes and
scorpions will have no venom, and a child will
even be able to play with a snake in his or her
hand, and the snake will not bite him or her.
A girl will chase away the lion, and the lion
will not touch her. The wolf will stand and wait
among the sheep, as if it were a sheep dog.133
enmity among people will disappear, since their
causes will have vanished.134
There Will Be Great Abundance
(pbuh) comes,] wealth will be so abundant that
no one will accept it [alms].135
The son of
Mary will return and kill the Antichrist. Then
you will live for 40 years in prosperity.136
food will cook in pots, unseen prosperity will
dominate, and material wealth will be disregarded.137
turn like a silver tray, growing vegetation
as it did in the time of Adam (pbuh) so much
so that a group of people will eat a bunch of
grapes and it will satiate them; a group of
people will eat a single pomegranate and it
will satiate them; the bull will be sold for
a lot of money; and a horse will cost only a
few dirhams." The audience asked: "God's messenger,
why will a horse be so cheap?" He replied: "It
will not be used as a mount for fighting." He
was asked: "Why will a bull be so expensive?"
He replied: "The whole land would be tilled."138
will multiply to such an extent that if a seed
is sown in a solid rock, it will grow.139
the plough, the produce of wheat will multiply
seven hundred times, one mudd [a measure of
wheat] becoming 700 mudd.140
will be told to bring forth its fruit and restore
its blessing. As a result thereof, there would
grow [such a large] pomegranate that a group
of people will be able to eat it and seek shelter
under its skin. A milk cow will give so much
milk that a whole party will able to drink.
A milk camel will give such [a large quantity
of] milk that the whole tribe will be able to
drink out of it, and a milk sheep will give
so much milk that the whole family will able
to drink out of that…141
