The End Times and the Mahdi [Given for Context of Radical Islam's thoughts on this August 22nd]
You Tube ^ | Unknown

Posted on 08/22/2006 7:52:38 AM PDT by Blogger

Because of Ahmadinejad's goal of ushering in the coming of the Mahdi, I thought for context that these film clips, pointed out on another forum, would be interesting to Freepers for Context.

It helps to explain his and other people's mindset. It is from an Islamic point of view, and interestingly refers to 9/11 as a Terrorist attack.

On the link above, there is a series fo 5 videos from You Tube. It is a Muslim explaining the supposed fulfillment of prophecy from the Hadith regarding the coming of the Mahdi (Islamic Messiah).

Ahmadinejad believes that he will usher in the coming of this Mahdi. File it under "know thy enemy."

I am watching this and these people are out of their minds...I love how everything about this religion seems to be stolen from all the older, more established religions.
They believe in Jesus but obviously don't believe in any of his teachings.

They believe he was a lesser prophet who did not die on the cross. From what I understand, they believe the Bible was corrupted but they don't know where so they won't speak ill of any particular part lest the be mistaken.

These videos are VERY similar to Christian eschatology - except the Koran seems to be much more vague and what they attach world events to could be just about anything. In that respect, they seem to be more like Nostradamus followers than Christians.

There are some things that Christians know will happen. There are some things we speculate as a possible fulfillment of ancient prophecy. But these guys are dogmatic about each and every aspect of what they are saying.

In the name of Mohahmmad--the pedophile, the pervert, the liar, the mold on a three-day old camel turd, the mucus matter around a dog's privates that attracts gnats in the summer--piss and blasphemy be upon his name, this is a fairy tale.

These videos are VERY similar to Christian eschatology

Except, imo, they mirror Christianity's. I haven't watched the videos yet, will in a minute, but to my knowledge, Muslim eschatology has much of the same elements as Christian eschatology, but it seems to me, their bad guys are our good guys and our bad guys are their good guys.

I think their mahdi is our AC, and their Isa (Jesus) is our false prophet. Their dajjal/AC is the real Jesus returning. Their mahdi makes a treaty with non-Muslims for 7 years, their "Jesus" comes back, denounces Christianity and defers to the mahdi. Their dajjal can raise people from the dead and has a large number of Jewish followers.

Good book link on the subject - Will Islam Be Our Future? A Study of Biblical and Islamic Eschatology

That very well may be. They are certainly setting themselves up for the Anti-Christ.

Blogger, Excellent find!!! Thanks!!! Just added this thread to my FR Links page. Very frightening stuff!!!

I have the book by Harun Yahya on which this video is based. I had no idea it was up at YouTube.
The End of Times and the Mahdi (book)
The End of Times and the Mahdi (dvd)

Portions of another Harun Yahya video are also at YouTube:
The Signs of the Last Day #1
The Signs of the Last Day #2

Check out my FR Homepage for more info. I recently added links to all the major End-Time hadiths, so people can read them for themselves.

Actually, it looks like all of Harun Yahya's videos can be downloaded for free from his website. Click on "Movies" in the left column.

If you just make some small changes in this film it could be sold as a New Age version about Nostradamus or to some Christians that believe in this type of crap, i.e. the End of Times. However, the important thing is that a sufficient number of people believe in this, as they can be manipulated by someone like Ahmadinejad, or Savonarola and Hitler earlier.

I wouldn't put Savonorola in with Hitler and Ahmadinejad.

A true Christian understanding of the end times does NOT include our trying to usher them in. We recognize the the world is what it is and that until Jesus returns it isn't going to be getting any better. But, we dont' teach that we do anything to usher in the Second Coming (or its predecessor, Armageddon).

With your definition "A true Christian" I agree with you, but people like Savonarola would probably describe themselves as true Christians as well. Naturally, they are a minority.

The main problem is that the percentage of Muslims that believe in this is very high, probably a majority. On the other hand they still live in the 15th century, just like Savonarola.

I think Savonarola probably was a true Christian. However, he did not act "Christianly" all of the time. You always have to take people in the context of their times. Was Martin Luther anti-semitic? Maybe. He certainly made some anti-semitic comments. But he may have been more anti-anything-but-Lutheran/Christian. Still, if he was truly anti-semitic, it would not have been unusual for his times and the area he grew up in at all. People are human. Even Christians! Especially Christians. And some are more human than others.

Groovejedi, have you ever looked at the traits of Prophet Mohammed? Surely if you are not ignorant, you have looked to see what his characteristics were, the person he was, what he believed in. Were his beliefs that different from Jews or Christians? As people don’t we have a obligation to respect other religions. Why do you have so much hatred, hatred against an individual who believed in God, believed in peace, respect, and good things for all people.

There are bad people in this world who use religion as a means to get what they want done, whether it be right or wrong. They manipulate people and brainwash others. This is done by all different people from different religions. Just because bad Muslims are doing it now doesn’t mean we ridicule the religion.

In the time of slavery, was Christianity looked down upon because Christians at the time were using the name of God to enforce and carry out slavery? Or when Spanish Catholics destroyed the Inca, Mayan, and Aztec civilizations by using the name of God, was the religion hated on. NO!! The people were bad, who used such a great thing as religion to spread evil, or what they thought was ok. Which in reality is not ok.

So before you go mock or say bad things about someone who only wished the best for people of all religions, someone who pleaded with God to have mercy on us, know your history.
