Apocalypse According to the Islamic view

Apocalypse According to the Islamic view

Doomsday is unseen to be believed by every Muslim and known only to Allah Almighty alone as many mentioned in His Book and the Sunnah of the Prophet, including:

يسألونك عن الساعة أيان مرساها قل إنما علمها عند ربي لا يجليها لوقتها إلا هو ثقلت في السماوات والأرض لا تأتيكم إلا بغتة يسألونك كأنك حفي عنها قل إنما علمها عند الله ولكن أكثر الناس لا يعلمون

It means: "They ask thee about the Hour:" When will it happen? "Say:" The knowledge of the Hour is on the Lord; no one can explain the time coming but Him. Reality Quite heavy (civil haranya for creatures) in the heavens and on earth. Judgement will not come to you but suddenly ". they ask you as if you really know. Say: "The knowledge of nautical Hour is with Allah, but most people do not Know". (Surat al-A'raf: 187)

Ibn Kathir says that the word of God, "Say: 'Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with my Lord; no one can explain the time coming but Him." It is the command of Allah to his prophet peace be upon him when he saw asked about the time of the Hour let him one day return it to the knowledge of Allah swt. Verily, He is the one who explains the arrival time or know the matter of clarity and certainty when it's time. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir Juz III case 518)

يسألك الناس عن الساعة قل إنما علمها عند الله وما يدريك لعل الساعة تكون قريبا

Meaning: "People ask you about the Hour. Say: "Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah only." and do you know (O Muhammad), so be that the Hour is near. "(Surat al-Ahzab: 63)

It was narrated from Abdullah ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah said, "The keys of the unseen was five, 'Verily, His side alone knowledge of the Hour, and He sent down rain, and knows what is in the womb. And no one can know (for sure) what will be earned tomorrow, and no one can know that where on earth he was going to die. Surely Allah is Knower, Aware. "(Narrated by Bukhari)

Al Qurtubi mentions that Ibn Abbas said that five keys are not there unseen except Allah Almighty knows. It was also not known by the angels, the prophets sent. Whoever thinks that he knows something about it all that person has to deny the Qur'an because he has menyalahinya. (Al Jami Li Ahkamil XIV it juz Quran 400)

And also the answer to the Prophet by the Angel Gabriel when asked about when the end of the world then he saw besabda, "People who were no better informed than the asking." (Narrated by Muslim) This hadith makes it clear that the Prophet himself and the man who asked (Gabriel ) does not know about the time of the apocalypse.

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi was asked about the destruction of nature in 2012?! He replied that this includes talk about things to come, through the veil of the future, reveal anything that might happen to you tomorrow or the next day, and that's all there is to know not but Allah swt.

وما تدري نفس ماذا تكسب غدا

It means: "And no one can know (for sure) what will be earned tomorrow." (Surah Luqman: 34)

Someone may know something with the indicator but it is not only limited to the alleged certainty.

وما تدري نفس بأي أرض تموت

Meaning: "and no one can figure out where on earth he was going to die." (Surah Luqman: 34)

As revealed by the poet:

We serve anything that has been written on our
And also it has been written for him to live
And those who had written his death in a place
So he's not going to die in the other.

God who knows the truth even intrinsic to various interpretations of the universe, the development of nature and life are all theories, Just like the big bang theory, the theory of this and that. And as a theory then there are also some other scientists who conduct argument against a variety of other theories, and so further.

The essence of the truth in this matter not knowing anyone except Allah as mentioned in the Qur'an. (Www.qaradawi.net)

Allaah knows best
