QUESTION: WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SAUDI ARABIA TODAY?

ANSWER:
THIS IS THE DAY OF ARAFAH ... and the pilgrims are asking Allah to forgive their sins

5 PILLARS OF ISLAM
1 SHAHADAH

.. Testify that nothing / no one can be worshipped beside Allah,

-that there is only 1 God
-and Muhammad is His last messenger
-this is similar to when Jesus told his disciples to worship 1 God
-this is the 1st commandment on every prophet
-Jesus said the greatest commandment [Mark 12:28, 29] was to single out God as 1

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important? “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[c] There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:28-33

-if you worship Jesus, Muhammad or Abraham,
-you're a pagan and there is no hope for you
-when we die, if our last words were I believe in 1 God
-and nothing deserves to be worshipped
-other than God and Muhammad was His last Messenger
-then you will have Paradise

And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): "Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghût (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Taghût besides Allah)." Then of them were some whom Allah guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth). (An-Nahl 16:36)

2 SALAH

.. where we pray 5x a day, every day, minimum 5x
-we pray FAJR first [early morning]
-we pray Dhuhr [after lunchtime]
-we then pray Asr [before dinner]
-we pray Maghrib after dinner time [times are approx]
-we end w/ Isha [before bedtime]
-times vary depending on where you live and are approx

3 ZAKAH
.. these are alms, or giving charity to the poor

If this world practiced zakah,
-there would not be all this poverty in the world
-some complain that immigrants get welfare [government finances]
-in the UK there is a movement called EDL ..
-OCCUPY WALL STREET now occupies London stands up for poor people
-communism died and democracy will, too

EDL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Defence_League

And say: "Truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism or this Qur'an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Batil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)

Everyone is struggle to financially make ends meet,
-especially since George Bush invaded Iraq
-they have no conscience

THE RICH ARE TO PAY ZAKAH, ie over 1000 USD - you should pay 2.5% [yearly savings]
-you're rewarded for any extra that you give
-your wealth must be 1 year old
-this is surplus money, ie your savings
-if you don't pay the zakah,
-your wealth will be transformed into black snakes

O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the Way of Allah (i.e. Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism). And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:34)

Zakah is mandated,
-so it's not really charity [which is extra,
-that we get barakah for giving]
-the Sadaqah is what is your charity
-this is a pillar of Islam to uproot poverty
-without it, the difference between the rich and poor becomes vast
-without it, widows and orphans turn to crime to survive financially

One of the caliphs, Umar,
-implemented zakah so proficiently, that within 1 year,
-there was no poverty the next year [no one to receive it]
-rich men, like Carlos Slim [71 yrs old w/ 74 billion USD]
-is the richest man in the world
-how do these men have 50 billion dollars in the bank,
-though there are people dying of hunger in the world?
-Muhammad (pbuh) said when people stop helping poor people,
-drought will come

'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) came to us and said, 'O Muhajirun, (emigrants from Makkah to al-Madinah) you may be afflicted by five things; God forbid that you should live to see them. If fornication should become widespread, you should realize that this has never happened without new diseases befalling the people which their forebears never suffered. If people should begin to cheat in weighing out goods, you should realize that this has never happened without drought and famine befalling the people, and their rulers oppressing them. If people should withhold Zakat, you should realize that this has never happened without the rain being stopped from falling; and were it not for the animals' sake, it would never rain again. If people should break their covenant with Allah and His Messenger, you should realize that his has never happened without Allah sending an enemy against them to take some of their possessions by force. If the leaders do not govern according to the Book of Allah, you should realize that this has never happened without Allah making them into groups and making them fight one another." (Ibn Majah)

O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm. (Muhammad 47:7)

We help Allah by helping His servants

-on Judgment Day, He will tell us we should have fed His servants
-God helps the man who helps his brother

4 SAUM
.. we fast in the month of Ramadan to control over evil desires
-we abstain from food, drink and jim3aa w/ our husband/wife
-we're not to marginalize fasting
-all our body fasts: ears, eyes, tongue, feet and hands
-and we're not to listen to backbiters
-many conquests took place during Ramadan
-but we're not to oppress people w/ our hands during Ramadan
-also, the private parts fast [until after Maghrib] .. we fast till after Maghrib

Shaikh was told
-“1000 people die from AIDS every day in Africa”
-because they didn't control their private parts
-our private parts and tongue will cause us to be in Hellfire
-more than anything else

Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever can guarantee (the chastity of) what is between his two jaw-bones and what is between his two legs (i.e. his tongue and his private parts), I guarantee Paradise for him." Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 76, Number 481

QUESTION: IS PARADISE A PHYSICAL OR SPIRITUAL PLACE? IS THERE MOVEMENT BETWEEN PEOPLE THERE? WHERE IS GOD?

ANSWER:
The nature of the question is that they came from a Muslim

Paradise is a physical and spiritual place: there is milk and honey there
-there is a river or water, milk, honey and wine there
-the wine in Paradise does not make us drunk
-the pomegranates are there [so are bananas]
-we even have jim3aa in Paradise w/ spouses

Wherein both will be those (maidens) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn yatmithhunna (has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse) before them. (Ar-Rahman 55:56)

Jamaicans call the jinn
{dupee} and they have jim3aa in Paradise
-there are virgins in Paradise
-only Jesus and Adam did NOT come by jim3aa
-[Adam was created and Jesus came through immaculate conception]

Then, We sent after them, Our Messengers, and We sent 'Iesa (Jesus) ¬ son of Maryam (Mary), and gave him the Injeel (Gospel). And We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him, compassion and mercy. But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allah therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fasiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (Al-Hadid 57:27)

People misappropriate s-x, so they have prostitution and homos-xuality
-such as money is not the root of all of evil but the LACK of money is

People say God is IN heaven or that He is EVERYWHERE ....
-God is NOT in heaven as he didn’t' create it and dwell there
-God is not everywhere, as He is not in a brothel or casino
-Muslims don't go in a brothel, so we can't expect God to be there, too
-some places are praise-worthy / some are blame-worthy
-God is on His throne ABOVE the 7 heavens
-the knowledge of God is everywhere
-but He is ON His throne
-He is not everywhere IN PERSON

"We used to say, while at-Tabiyeen were still many, that Allah, all praise to Him, is upon His Throne. We believe in what the Sunnah has told us of His Attributes." [Al-Uluw by At-Thahabee].

"Whoever says that he does not know whether His Lord is above the heavens or on earth is a disbeliever (kaafir!), because Allah has said (meaning): 'The Ever-Merciful Istawa (rose) upon His Throne' [20-5]. And His Throne is above the seven heavens." Abu Muti al-Balkhi asked him: "What if says that yes Allah is upon His Throne but he does not know whether the throne is above the earth or on earth itself?" To which Abu Haneefa replied, "He is (still) a disbeliever (kaafir), because he rejected that Allah is above the heavens , and that the creation make supplications above to their Lord and not downward." [At-Thahabee in Al-Uluw]

And At-Tirmidhi, the great muhaditheen said: "He is above the Throne as He described in His Book. His Knowledge, Power, and Lordship are everywhere." [Al-fatawa by Ibn Taymiyyah]

"Whoever does not affirm that Allah is above His heavens, upon His Throne and that He is distinct from His creation; must be forced to repent. If he does not repent, then he must be beheaded and then thrown into a garbage dump, so that the Muslims and the Ahl-Dhimma (the Christians and the Jew) will not suffer from his stinking smell." [Al-Hakim in Al-Ma’rifah].

There will be movements in Paradise

-those in 7th heaven can visit those in 5th heaven
-but we can not visit UP [because we are assigned
-based on our status (from our good deeds)]
-but we can visit down
-there are gate-keepers and are angels, guarding each gate of Paradise
-there is a difference between Paradise and Heaven

Their reward with their Lord is 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, they will abide therein forever, Allah Well-Pleased with them, and they with Him. That is for him who fears his Lord. [98:8]

QUESTION: IF SOMEONE SAYS BISMILLAH or ALHUMDULILLAH or ALLAHU AKBAR or SUBHAN’ALLAH ... are they decorating their place in heaven?

ANSWER:
YES, these sayings are dhikr: remembrance of God and praise of God
-we receive barakah every time we praise and remember Him (swt)

There are NO old people in Paradise
-in hadith, we're reminded that the old woman would not
-be in Paradise as an old woman

Hasan Basri (RA) says that an old woman came to Rasoolullah (SAW) and made a request, O’ Messenger of Allah make Dua that Allah grants me entrance into Jannah. Rasoolullah (SAW) replied, O’ Mother, an old woman cannot enter Jannah. That woman started crying and began to leave. Rasoolullah (SAW) said, Say to the woman that one will not enter in a state of old age, but Allah will make all the women of Jannah young virgins. Allah Ta’aala says, Lo! We have created them a (new) creation and made them virgins, lovers, equal in age. (Surah Waaqi’ah, 35-37). [Shamaa-il Tirmidhi, Ch35, Hadith #230]

-we will all be 33 years old there
-there are no toilets [loo], or sickness, no belching,
-or jealousy, no envy
-in Paradise, there are 2 wives for each man and there is no jealousy
-these diseases of the heart will NOT be in Paradise
-there are no beards in Paradise
-no hijab or beards in Paradise
-there's no defecation, no bleeding after childbirth,
-no old age, no sickness, no death

5 HAJJ
.. pilgrimage to Makkah

QUESTION: WHY IS ABRAHAM SIGNIFICANT TO ISLAM?

ANSWER:
He is the god-father of Islam,
-he built the Ka'ba in Makkah
-Abraham is the 2nd most significant stalwart in Islam
-he built the Ka'ba w/ his son Ishmael and he taught us
-how to go around the Ka'ba 7x
-he taught us monotheism, worshipping God alone
-without ascribing partners to God
-Muhammad (saws) revived monotheism because after Abraham,
-the people returned to idols
-Abraham was told to sacrifice Ishmael, his son
-Isaac could NOT be the sacrificial son because
-his one and only @ the time of the commandment was ISHMAEL
-Isaac was born 1 year later
-Ishmael was WILLING to be sacrificed

QUESTION: HOW DID HAGAR MARRY ABRAHAM?

ANSWER:
Abraham was Iraqi and he went to Egypt on a trip [where they were pagans]

Abraham told 3 lies:
1) Sarah was his sister [he wanted to divorce her so she could marry the pagan Egyptian king] then she could invite him to monotheism and revert the whole of Egypt but Sarah didn't want to divorce Abraham .. when she went in front of the king, he tried to grab her [because she was SO beautiful] ... but she'd prayed before she went in front of the king .. and his hand became paralyzed so he asked her to pray to HER god to heal her

Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: Ibrahim never lied in anything except on three occasions : When he said, “I am sick” though he was not sick, and when he said about Sarah, “She is my sister,” and when he said, “Rather, the biggest of them has done it.” [Ahmed 9252, Bukhari 2217, Muslim 2371, Abu Dawud 2212]

.. when she went in front of the king, he tried to grab her
-[because she was SO beautiful]
.. but she'd prayed before she went in front of the king
.. and his hand became paralyzed so he asked her to pray to HER god to heal her

-the king kept trying to grab her
-because he felt helpless in front of her
-but he asked her to pray to her God AGAIN .. and he tried a 3rd time!
-each time he became paralyzed
-there are many men who want to go to bed w/ the wives of other men
-this is perfect reason why sisters cover in front of other men
-when the king was cured of the paralyzed hand,
-instead of saying Allah akbar he called Sarah a devil!
-he gave Hagar to her as a gift [she was also beautiful]
-he did this planning for Sarah to mistreat Hagar
-and expose her as a devil

Sarah was unable to become pregnant
-so she suggested that Abraham marry her [Hagar] to give him sons
-Hagar gave birth to Ishmael and though she was OK w/ polygamy
-but not w/ the co-wife having her husband's son
-She told him to take Hagar, the son and Abraham to leave their home
-Hagar showed off to Sarah by saying, I WAS ABLE TO GIVE HIM A SON ...
-then Abraham went from Iraq or Saudi Arabia
-and left Hagar there w/o vegetation
-he said God commanded him to do this so she accepted God's qadr [will]

Side-note:
Adam and Eve were not together from the beginning when they were placed on earth
-scholars differ on the time but some say they searched
-for each other for 40 days or 40 years

WE HAVE 5 NEEDS: SPIRITUAL, FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL and MENTAL
-We need partners to fulfill our needs

I marry women. Whoever turns away from my Sunnah is not of me.”(Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)

So Hagar and Ishmael
are in the middle of the desert w/o water or food
-her breast milk dried up so she ran between 2 hills,
-Safaa and Marwa to find water
-her motherly instinct was to search for water
-and she ran between the 2 hills
-which we do now when we make hajj, to run between those 2 hills
-if you're menstruating and are on Hajj,
-you can run between the hills
-but you can't make tawaf

Indeed love for the water of Zamzam is safety from hypocrisy.” (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)

-she found the water zamzam [ and if you love it,
-you're free from hypocrisy ]
-Hagar put stones around the river to contain the water,
-so it stayed as a well to feed her and her baby, Ishmael
-Muhammad asked Allah to have mercy on her
-because a river would have been better for all the ummah

The devil appeared in the form of an old woman [to Abraham]
-and he stoned the devil
-so when pilgrims go for hajj, and stone he pillars, we're re-enacting this
-and we sacrifice a goat, lamb, or camel
-tomorrow, Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011, there will be animal sacrifices
-all over the world
-we are re-enacting the sacrifice of Abraham of his son, Ishmael
-child sacrifices were common then but Umar cut out that practice
-some men in Africa who have AIDS want to rape virgins
-thinking it will cure them of AIDS
-but all it does it give the disease to the girl
-men who dabble in black magic spread this myth are called an "obayman"

QUESTION: WHAT IS A SURAH?
ANSWER: CHAPTER IN THE QUR'AN

QUESTION: IS THE LOVE OF MONEY THE ROOT OF EVIL?
ANSWER: NO, THE LACK OF MONEY IS

...and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world... (Al-Qasas 28:77)

QUESTION: TELL US ABOUT MALCOLM X AFTER HE WENT ON HAJJ

ANSWER:
Before he became a Muslim, he went to bed w/ a lot of white women
-afterward, he hated white people, because eh was caught up w/ Elijah Pole [from NOI]
-crimes make countries weak, look at Rwanda, and look at the black infidels (in Chicago and new York)?
-we're not permitted to single out 1 race to say THEY ARE THE DEVIL
-in India, they make cool-aid from cow urine, for example

Malcolm X
prayed beside SO many Muslims from different countries
-he went as a racist but did not return as a racist
-Malcolm X was shocked that a white man offered him his bed to sleep in
-white Americans implement Apartheid in many countries
-Europeans are less racist than those whites in America
-he realized Elijah Pole was NOT a prophet
-because MUHAMMAD is the last prophet
-Elijah Pole claimed to be one and he went to bed
-to have zina w/ 13 year old girls
-Malcolm realized what he was taught was wrong
-and exposed Elijah Pole
-so the Nation of Islam [NOI] came after Malcolm and killed him
-no one wants to be exposed ...
-and he was eliminated and died as a shaheed

Narrated Jubair ibn Mut’im: The Messenger of Allah (saws), said: "He is not one us who calls for `Asabiya, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiya or who dies for `Asabiya." [Abu Dawud]

QUESTION: IF WE HAVE MONEY, TIME, HEALTH AND NEVER GO ON HAJJ, WHAT HAPPENS TO US?

ANSWER:
HADITH says then we die as an infidel
-this is gross negligence because this is a requirement [pillar] of Islam

“He who possess enough food for the trip, a means of transportation to reach to Makkah, and yet does not perform Hajj, then he dies, he would then die as a Jew or a Christian” (At-Tirmidhi, Al-Bazzaar, and others).

QUESTION: CAN A SINGLE WOMAN GO ON HAJJ?

ANSWER:
YES, SHE NEEDS A CHAPERONE BUT IF SHE DOES, IT IS NOT NULLIFIED BECAUSE THE ONLY THING TO NULLIFY HAJJ IS INTERCOURSE

HAJJ can be repaired by animal sacrifices
-but a woman can go w/ a group
-and even while menstruating
-Aisha (r.a.) went while menstruating, but she could not do tawaaf
-[because it is salah]

And perform properly (i.e. all the ceremonies according to the ways of Prophet Muhammad ), the Hajj and 'Umrah (i.e. the pilgrimage to Makkah) for Allah. But if you are prevented (from completing them), sacrifice a Hady (animal, i.e. a sheep, a cow, or a camel, etc.) such as you can afford, and do not shave your heads until the Hady reaches the place of sacrifice. And whosoever of you is ill or has an ailment in his scalp (necessitating shaving), he must pay a Fidyah (ransom) of either observing Saum (fasts) (three days) or giving Sadaqah (charity - feeding six poor persons) or offering sacrifice (one sheep). Then if you are in safety and whosoever performs the 'Umrah in the months of Hajj, before (performing) the Hajj, (i.e. Hajj-at-Tamattu' and Al-Qiran), he must slaughter a Hady such as he can afford, but if he cannot afford it, he should observe Saum (fasts) three days during the Hajj and seven days after his return (to his home), making ten days in all. This is for him whose family is not present at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (i.e. non-resident of Makkah). And fear Allah much and know that Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Baqarah 2:196)

QUESTION: WHAT DO WE DO W/ THE MEAT WE SACRIFICE?

ANSWER:
WE DO IT ONCE A YEAR ON EID UL-ADHA, (tomorrow)
-we will sacrifice an animal tomorrow
-and even though we're not on hajj, we're to behave like a pilgrim

QUESTION: DID ABRAHAM TELL 3 LIES?

ANSWER: YES, they were:

1. “I AM SICK”

-he was in Iraq and was invited to a festival, sort of like Christmas,
-and they worshipped idols there

2. “THE BIG IDOL BROKE THE OTHER IDOLS”
-even though he broke the idols himself
-Abraham was dumped into a fire then for lying and breaking the idols

3. “SARAH IS MY SISTER” [but she was his wife]
-he wanted the king to be invited to monotheism
-some scholars say he didn’t lie
-because he meant she was his Muslim sister

Ibrahim (Abraham) was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a true Muslim Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism – to worship none but Allah Alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikûn (See V.2:105). (Aali Imran 3:67)

Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: Ibrahim never lied in anything except on three occasions : When he said, “I am sick” though he was not sick, and when he said about Sarah, “She is my sister,” and when he said, “Rather, the biggest of them has done it.” [Tirmidhi 3177, Ahmed 9252, Bukhari 2217, Muslim 2371, Abu Dawud 2212]

QUESTION: WHAT IS HAMAS?
ANSWER: A POLITICAL MOVEMENT IN PALESTINE

-they demanded the freedom of 1000 prisoners for 1 Israeli prisoner
-[he was held for 5 yrs]

YVONNE RIDLEY:
-she is a white, British journalist who was captured
-by the Taliban in Afghanistan
-for entering the country illegally
-she became a Muslim because she was treated
-so beautifully by the Taliban

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yvonne_Ridley

QUESTION: PLEASE EXPLAIN GENESIS 9:4
ANSWER:
Abraham and his father's relationship: it was not lovely

But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. Genesis 9:4 (King James Version)

While he was selling his father's idols,
-he was saying "it can't benefit or harm you"

WHEN SACRIFICING ANIMALS:
-the blood must come out
-we can not say anyone else's name
-we're to say BISMILLAH ALLAHU AKBAR
-we're to use a sharp knife
-we're not to kill one animal in front of another animal

ANIMALS FEAR DEATH THE SAME WAY MAN DOES
-Suleiman’s army had ants and they cried out to protect each other
-cut the throat, then the jugular vein, and allow the blood to flow out
-blood pudding is not permitted in Islam
-Abraham's father was a pagan

Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not." (An-Naml 27:18)

They said: "Are you the one who has done this to our gods, O Ibrahim (Abraham)?" (Al-Anbiya 21:62)

[Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Nay, this one, the biggest of them (idols) did it. Ask them, if they can speak!" (Al-Anbiya 21:63)

So they turned to themselves and said: "Verily, you are the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers)." (Al-Anbiya 21:64)

Then they turned to themselves (their first thought and said): "Indeed you [Ibrahim (Abraham)] know well that these (idols) speak not!" (Al-Anbiya 21:65)

[Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Do you then worship besides Allah, things that can neither profit you, nor harm you? (Al-Anbiya 21:66)

"Fie upon you, and upon that which you worship besides Allah! Have you then no sense?" (Al-Anbiya 21:67)

They said: "Burn him and help your aliha (gods), if you will be doing." (Al-Anbiya 21:68)

We (Allah) said: "O fire! Be you coolness and safety for Ibrahim (Abraham)!" (Al-Anbiya 21:69)

Whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies Allah. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (As-Saff 61:1)

Only man and jinn rebel against God, not animals

-NIMROD has a god-complex

3 TYPES OF COMPLEX:
-INFERIORITY
-SUPERIORITY
-a god-complex


Bashar al-Assad has a god-complex
-asking people to make Shahadah TO him
-the Saudi’s will have to bankroll the war against him
-the Russians and the Chinese vetoed against Syria
-Bashar's days are numbered
-his soldiers hold a gun to your head and make you say
-THERE IS NO GOD BUT BASHAR AL-ASSAD

...By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 3572]

GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD

You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:4-5). A jealous God! How can a God who is holy, just, loving, ...

QUESTION: WHO BUILT THE KA'BA?

ANSWER: ABRAHAM BUILT THE KA'BA W/ HIS SON, ISHMAEL

-whenever we are praying, we face the Ka'ba

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said, "My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allah and the Last Day." He (Allah) answered: "As for him who disbelieves, I shall leave him in contentment for a while, then I shall compel him to the torment of the Fire, and worst indeed is that destination!" (Al-Baqarah 2:126)

In Makkah:
-no plagues
-no wars
-no famines
-no natural disasters
-no antichrist [a Jew, blind in the right eye]


The antichrist will promise a farmer to bring back his dead animals
-and have demons become those animals
-the farmer will believe in the antichrist then
-but one of Jesus jobs is to kill the antichrist

All Muslims are looking for the return of Jesus
-this is mentioned in 43:61
-he will return to Syria!
-that is not Judgment Day
-because Jesus will be here married and have kids
-Jesus was NOT killed on the cross [he was lifted up to the heavens]

..and because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]: (An-Nisa 4:157)

But Allah raised him ['Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All Wise. (An-Nisa 4:158)
