BEWARE! NO MESSIAH, NO MAHDI IS COMING.
February 5th, 2009 by Dr. Shabbir
God is not sending any Savior to the world! The last Messenger (S) has come and gone having delivered the eternal Message (Al-Qur’an) to all humanity. Now it is up to us to save or destroy the planet earth.
Ayah 2:177 gives us only Five Article of Faith: Tawheed, Angels, Prophets, the Book and the Hereafter. Please remember that the Ultimate Authority for Muslims is nothing but Al-Qur’an. You will not find “The Advent of Mahdi” in the Qur’an.
The Bible, e.g. Gospel of Mathew (KJV) has this to say about Jesus:
24:30 —- and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. [That generation passed away 2000 years ago without Jesus’ return. Since then, billions of people have lived, waited and died waiting, Ah! Any interpretation of this verse can be, and has been, nothing but frankly and embarrassingly apologetic - ‘yes, but’ - situation, even for the greats such as Grahams and Franklins and Oh yes, for the PAPAS in capitals.]
Everyone Seems To Be Waiting
The dogma of a Promised One is almost Universal. It is found in every religion of the world. Probably, soon you will agree that it is nothing but wishful thinking.
When the Messiah of the Jews comes he will bestow upon them the everlasting Worldly Kingdom. Jews have already started becoming apologetic. For example, in large numbers, they are turning to believing in the Messianic Age rather than a personality.
When the Messiah of the Christians shows up again, the faithful (Alas! Only 600,000) will be taken up to the heavens in Rapture to live in the Father’s Palace up there, while the remaining billions get annihilated on this dusty earth. “Billions just could not and would not make it.” (Joseph Barber Lightfoot, Bishop of England 1880).
When Meeta or Buddha II, arrives, he will make Buddhism dominate all religions “physically and spiritually” and turn every human being into a Mahatma (The great soul).
Mithra of Zoroastrians will herald the return of the long lost Maggian glory for his followers.
Kalki Avtar (The Last Savior) will lead Hindus straight to Mukti (Salvation by non-existence – and out of the endless cycle of Reincarnation).
Tri-Thankra of Jainism will unify all human beings on earth into his religion. Then all people will become the ideal ‘Bugs Bunnies’ eating plant roots alone.
Even the ancient Tribes of Africa, Native Americans, the Aborigines of Australia, the Eskimos and inhabitants of the Amazon and the Himalaya valleys charm themselves with an oncoming, supernatural, and magical Redeemer.
TWO MAHDIS: The greatest drama, Ma-Sha-Allah, rests with the N2I Muslims since they have two and not one Mahdi, coming: A Sunni Mahdi and a Shi’ah Mahdi with extremely divergent action plans! And, of course, the Mullahs make them believe in the Second Coming of Jesus as well. So, they have to contend with THREE Supermen, all at one time! :-)
Let’s think for a moment that dozens of Promised Ones have appeared in the world for a final round trying to prevail over one another. Battles, wars, massive blood shed and total chaos grab hold of our little poor planet as far as our imagination can take us, rather beyond.
How many mini-Mahdis and mini-Christs have come and gone in the last many centuries? This can be anybody’s guess but I have seen two in chains. Countless people have claimed to be the Promised One, the Mahdi or the Messiah in the last many centuries. It is a strange paradox that people keep waiting and waiting intently for someone to come. But as soon as some priest, monk, mullah, sufi, yogi, mystic, makes the claim, they raise furor against him. They even attempt to kill him.
The real problem with the dogma of a promised one is that it serves as opiate for the masses. It snatches from them the will to strive and struggle. Well, someone will come to solve their problems and raise them to glory. The situation is quite understandable as far as other religions are concerned since they do not have Al-Qur’an, the Criterion between the right and the wrong. But it is strange that the Muslims that regard the Qur’an as their authoritative Book keep groping in the dark. We will see shortly that the Final Word of God very clearly rules out the coming of another promised one after Prophet Muhammad (S). We have documented that even the N2I Mullah Maududi in his Tafheem vol 4 pg 163 admits that there is no place for this utopia in the Qur’an.
