Civil Wars and Conflicts


In the near future, there will be people who will cause fitna and conflict. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 376, no. 685)



Doomsday will not come until a person kills his brother. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa'ah, p. 141)



Doomsday will not come until hearts hate one another, ideas are divided, and brothers fall into conflict over religion. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, pp. 142-43)


In Zaire, the civil war between the Hutus and the Tutsis is an example of the conflicts that raged in the twentieth century. Colonel Joseph Mobutu, who came to power in 1964, opened all of the country's natural resources and diamond mines to West. Making no effort to encourage social development, he amassed a huge fortune for himself and indulged in extravagance. The conflicts that befell the Zairian people turned out to be a great genocide, during which almost half a million people died.

Wars that raged among different tribes, that is, "fanatical rage," caused brutal events in many other countries as well. In the Qur'an, God calls attention to "fanatical rage," a feeling of rage and hatred unique to those people who are ignorant of the religion's morality, as follows:

Those who disbelieve filled their hearts with fanatical rage - the fanatical rage of the Time of Ignorance - and God sent down serenity to His Messenger and to the believers, and bound them to the expression of heedfulness, which they had most right to and were most entitled to. God has knowledge of all things. (Surat al-Fath, 48:26)

This enmity and hatred, which God has forbidden, will be seen in the End Times. The return of Prophet Jesus (pbuh), however, will be a blessed period during which all of this hostility, war, and conflict will end and be replaced by peace and security.
