Religious Prohibitions Gain Acceptance


A fitna appears, and other fitnas follow then comes a fitna that considers all of the unlawful acts to be lawful. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi `Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 26)



Transmitted by Hudhayfa: "Our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) said: 'O Hudhayfa, on that day they [the Muslims] will be on the verge of reverting back to their former religion; they will assume that wine is lawful and will fail to perform their regular prayers.'"


- Bribery is spreading speedily throughout world (Milliyet, August 29, 2002)
- Prostitution is Spreading
(Akit, August 11, 2001)

Such unlawful acts as prostitution, alcohol, and bribery are widespread in the world today. The western media praises and encourages those who commit these unlawful acts, while criticizing those who do not. Statistics reveal that the number of people engaged in such activities is steadily increasing. This lifestyle that sees no boundaries, disregards what is lawful and unlawful, and considers every form of immorality as normal is quite compatible with the setting depicted in the hadith. This gloomy setting, which indicates the Mahdi's advent, also indicates that the coming of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is drawing nigh. Other related hadiths and the explanations of Muslim scholars are as follows:


The Mahdi will not emerge until unbelief invades everywhere and is openly committed in public. What rules in such times is the invasion by unbelief ... That is its power.
(Imam Rabbani, Letters of Rabbani, vol. 2, 259)



The Mahdi will emerge following the occurrence of such vile fitna, whereby all of the prohibitions are regarded as lawful.
(Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar
fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 23)
