This is a very PRO Islam video. Jesus is not found within the pages of the Koran at all. Issa is not Jesus Christ.

One thing about this video is it shows the Catholic influence in it on the parts by Mary. But what do you expect, as it was Catholics that started Islam.

The next couple of posts are from this book.

The Islamic Antichrist
Will Islam Be Our Future?
A Study of Biblical and Islamic Eschatology
By Joel Richardson

http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/JR/Future/

Here is the Muslim Issa...

Quote
Chapter Six
 
The Muslim Jesus
 

 

 

After the emergence or the “rising” of the Mahdi, the second most important event among the Major Signs, is the return of Jesus Christ.  Christians who love Jesus understandably get quite excited by the prospect that even Muslims are looking for and longing for His return.  Unfortunately, the Islamic belief of just who this Jesus is that is coming, and what he does once he has arrived, is drastically different than what Christians believe about Jesus. 

 

The first thing that Christians need to understand regarding the Islamic belief about Jesus is that Muslims of course reject the idea that Jesus was or is the Son of God.  According to Islam, Jesus is not as the Bible articulates, God in the flesh.  Secondly, in Islamic belief, Jesus never died on a cross for the sins of mankind.  The Quran specifically denies that Jesus was ever crucified or that He ever experienced death.  Muslims believe that after Allah miraculously delivered Jesus from death, he was assumed into heaven alive in a similar fashion to the biblical narrative regarding Elijah.  Since then, Muslims believe, Jesus has remained with Allah and has been awaiting his opportunity to return to the earth to finish his ministry and complete his life.  As such, to the Islamic mind, Jesus was not in any way a “savior”.  To Muslims, Jesus was merely another prophet in the long line of prophets that Allah has sent to mankind.  The special title of Messiah, although retained in the Islamic tradition, is essentially stripped of any truly biblically defined Messianic characteristics.  According to the sacred texts of Islam, as we are about to see, when Jesus returns, it most certainly will not be to restore the Nation of Israel to the Jewish people.  Nor will Jesus’ purpose be to save and deliver his faithful followers from the ongoing persecution of the Antichrist.  In order to understand the Islamic concept of Jesus’ return, the first thing that needs to be realized is that when Jesus comes back, he comes back as a radical Muslim!

 

This chapter will outline the Islamic traditions regarding the return of Jesus.  Many of the Hadith below that refer to Jesus do not call him by the name Jesus, but rather Isa.  Muslims occasionally will refer to Jesus by his English name for our sake, but the name that the Quran gives him, and which most Muslims use is Isa (or Eesa) al-Maseeh (the Messiah).  Other common titles that Islam uses when referring to Jesus are Hadrat Isa (Honorable Jesus), Isa bin Maryam (Jesus son of Mary) or Nabi Isa (Prophet Jesus).  Some of these titles may be used below.

 

The Return Of The Muslim Jesus
 

According to Islam’s sacred traditions, Jesus’ return is usually described as taking place just outside Damascus:

 

At this very time Allah would send Christ, son of Mary, and he will descend at the white minaret in the eastern side of Damascus wearing two garments lightly dyed with saffron and placing his hands on the wings of two Angels. When he would lower his head, there would fall beads of perspiration from his head, and when he would raise it up, beads like pearls would scatter from it.  1

 

The Subordinate Of The Mahdi
 

At this time, Jesus descends to meet the army of the Mahdi which will be preparing for battle.  It will be just before the time of prayer. 

 

Muslims will still be preparing themselves for the battle drawing up the ranks.  Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus, son of Mary would descend. 2

 

Based on the relevant Hadith, Islamic scholars seem to be in universal agreement that the Mahdi will ask Jesus to lead the prayers.  Jesus will then refuse this request and will defer instead to the Mahdi to lead the prayer. 

 

The Messenger of Allah said: A section of my people will not cease fighting for the truth and will prevail until the Day of resurrection.  He said: Jesus son of Mary would then descend and their [Muslims’] commander [the Mahdi] would invite him to come and lead them in prayer, but he would say: No, some amongst you are commanders over some. 3

 

The important element here that needs to be stressed is that Jesus will then pray behind the Mahdi as a direct statement regarding Jesus’ inferiority of rank to the Mahdi. 

 

Jesus Christ will decline the offer and invitation of Imam Mahdi to come and lead the Muslims in prayer, and say his prayer behind Imam Mahdi. 4

 

Jesus (peace be upon him) will come and will perform the obligatory prayers behind the Mahdi and follow him. 5

 

(Jesus) will be following the Mahdi, the master of the time, and that is why he will be offering his prayers behind him. 6

 

Jesus The Faithful Muslim

 

After Jesus returns, in keeping with his identity as a faithful Muslim, he will perform the ritual pilgrimage to Mecca called hajj:

 

The Prophet said: Verily Isa ibn Maryam shall descend as an equitable judge and fair ruler.  He shall tread his path on the way to hajj (pilgrimage) and come to my grave to greet me, and I shall certainly answer him! 7

 

Jesus Will Institute Islamic Law

 

While the Mahdi, as the Caliph (vice-regent) and Imam (leader) of the Muslims is clearly seen as being a superior to Jesus, Jesus is still said to be a leader of the Muslim Community.  According to the Islamic traditions, Jesus’ primary purpose will be to oversee the institution and the enforcement of the Islamic Shariah law all over the world.

 

Ibn Qayyim mentioned in Manar al-munif that the leader… is the Mahdi who will request Jesus to lead the Muslims in prayer.  Jesus will remain on the earth, not as a prophet, but as one of the Community (ummah) of Prophet Muhammad.  Muslims will follow him as their leader.  According to Shalabi, the Mahdi will lead the Muslims in prayer, and Jesus will rule the Muslims according to the Divine Law (Shari’ah). 8

 

Jesus, the son of Mary will descend and will lead them judging amongst them according to the holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad. 9

 

Jesus: The Greatest Muslim Evangelist

 

Islamic tradition teaches that because Jesus will declare himself to be a Muslim, he will lead many Christians to convert to Islam.  Regarding those who do not convert to Islam, the Quran states that Jesus will be a witness against them on the Day of Judgment:

 

There is not one of the People of the Scripture (Christians and Jews) but will believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them.  (Surah 4:159)

 

Commenting on the above verse, Mufti Muhammad Shafi and Mufti Mohammad Rafi Usmani in their book, Signs of the Qiyama [the final judgement] and the Arrival of the Maseeh [the Messiah] explain that the phrase “will believe in him before his death” means that Christians and Jews will:

 

…confirm that he is alive and has not died and he is not God or the Son of God but (merely) His (Allah’s) slave and Messenger, and Isa (Jesus) will testify against those who had called him son of God, the Christians, and those who had belied him, the Jews. 10

 

Sheikh Kabbani, Chairman of the Islamic Supreme Council of America clearly articulates the Islamic perspective regarding Jesus’ evangelistic role when He returns.

 

Like all prophets, Prophet Jesus came with the divine message of surrender to God Almighty, which is Islam.  This verse shows that when Jesus returns he will personally correct the misrepresentations and misinterpretations about himself.  He will affirm the true message that he brought in his time as a prophet, and that he never claimed to be the Son of God.  Furthermore, he will reaffirm in his second coming what he prophesied in his first coming bearing witness to the seal of the Messengers, Prophet Muhammad.  In his second coming many non-Muslims will accept Jesus as a servant of Allah Almighty, as a Muslim and a member of the Community of Muhammad. 11

 

Al-Sadr and Mutahhari, likewise articulate this same expectation:

 

Jesus will descend from heaven and espouse the cause of the Mahdi.  The Christians and the Jews will see him and recognize his true status.  The Christians will abandon their faith in his godhead (sic). 12

 

Jesus Will Abolish Christianity
 

It is crucial to understand that according to Islamic tradition and belief, when Jesus returns, he does not merely come to convert most Christians to Islam but to literally abolish Christianity entirely.  This fact is understood when we analyze a very well-known, and oft-quoted tradition that refers to four specific things that Jesus will do when he returns.  Jesus is said to:

 

Break crosses.
Kill all swine.
Abolish the jizyah tax (a Muslim tax on non-Muslims)
Kill the Muslim antichrist and his followers.
 

The Prophet said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus. He will descent (sic) (to the earth)… He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. 13

The three actions of breaking “the cross”, killing pigs and abolishing the jizyah tax are based on the notion that Jesus will eliminate all other religions on the earth other than Islam.  Shafi and Usmani explain that to “break the cross” means to “abolish worship of the cross”.  Several Muslim friends that I’ve spoken with have expressed their understanding of this tradition: Jesus will break or remove all crosses from the rooftops and steeples of churches throughout the earth.  This action will thus indicate that Jesus will be making a clear statement regarding his disapproval of the false notion that he was ever crucified on a cross.  The killing of the swine is so that the “Christian belief of its lawfulness is belied.” 14 The reason for abolishing the jizyah tax (the compulsory poll-tax that non-Muslims must pay in order to live in a Muslim land) is based on the idea that when Jesus returns, the jizyah tax will no longer be accepted.  The only choice that Christians will have is to accept Islam or die. As Sideeque M.A. Veliankode states in Doomsday Portents and Prophecies:

Jesus, the son of Mary will soon descend among the Muslims as a just judge… Jesus will, therefore, judge according to the law of Islam… all people will be required to embrace Islam and there will be no other alternative. 15

Even Harun Yahya, likewise affirms this belief in his book, Jesus Will Return when he says,”Jesus will remove all systems of disbelief in that period.” 16 

Muslim jurists also confirm these interpretations: consider, for example, the ruling of Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (d. 1368) from The Reliance of the Traveller, the classic Shafi manual of Islamic jurisprudence:

"... the time and the place for [the poll tax] is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace) ..." 17

 

Jesus The Slayer Of Jews

Beyond the “accomplishment” of abolishing Christianity on a worldwide scale, another of Jesus’ primary jobs is to kill a figure know as the Dajjal, or the Muslim version of the Antichrist.  But not only will Jesus kill the Dajjal, but also all of the Dajjal’s followers, who consequently, will mostly be Jews.  Muhammad Ali Ibn Zubair in an article entitled, Who is the evil Dajjal? elaborates:

 

The Yahudis (Jews) of Isfahaan will be his (The Dajjals) main followers.
Apart from having mainly Yahudi followers, he will have a great number of women followers as well. 18

Veliankode explains that one of the main reasons for Jesus return is “to refute the Jews over the controversial issue that they killed Jesus… However Jesus will kill them including their leader, the Antichrist.” 19 Listing the events of the last-days as they occur, Muhammad Ali Ibn Zubair, author of The Signs of Qiyama (Judgement Day) begins:

His followers the Yahudis, will number 70,000… (Then) Hadrat Isa (honorable Jesus) kills the Dajjal at the Gate of Hudd, near an Israeli airport, in the valley of “Ifiq.”  The final war between the Yahudi’s will ensue, and the Muslims will be victorious. 20

 

We will discuss this “final war” between the Jews and the Muslims in more detail in a later chapter.  But for now, it is important to remember that when this final war (or more accurately a final slaughter) occurs, according to Islamic tradition, it is the Muslim Jesus who is the primary instigator of such.

 

Jesus: A Good Muslim Family Man

 

One final aspect of the Muslim Jesus’ return must be pointed out.  After converting the world to Islam and killing unbelievers, the Dajjal and his followers, Jesus is said to marry, have children and eventually die:

 

The Prophet said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus… He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him. 21

 

After his descention (sic) on earth, Jesus will marry.  He will have children, and he will remain on the earth 19 years after marriage.  He will pass away and Muslims will perform his Funeral Prayer and bury him next to the Prophet Muhammad. 22

 

Summary

 

Now let’s review the various defining characteristics and actions of the Muslim Jesus upon his return to the earth:

 

1.      Jesus is said to return to the earth in the last-days near a mosque in Damascus.

2.      He will arrive at a time when the Mahdi and his army will be preparing to pray.

3.      He will be offered to lead the prayer by the Mahdi, but will decline in direct deference to the Mahdi who Jesus declares to be the leader of the Muslims.

4.      He will then pray behind the Mahdi as a subordinate.

5.      He will be a faithful Muslim

6.      He will make pilgrimage to Mecca.

7.      He will visit Muhammad’s grave, and salute Muhammad, whereby Muhammad will return the salute from the grave.

8.      He will destroy Christianity.

9.      He will repeal the jizyah tax thus causing the only option for Jews and Christians to convert to Islam or die.

10.  He will establish Islamic Shari’ah (Law) throughout the entire earth.

11.  He will kill the Antichrist and his followers made up largely of Jews and women.

12.  He will remain on the earth for roughly forty years, during which time he will marry, have children and then die.

 

As we have clearly seen, the Muslim Jesus, in both his nature and actions is far different than the biblical Jesus.  Rather than coming to reign as King and Messiah over all the earth from Jerusalem, Jesus instead comes to convert the world to Islam or kill those who refuse to do so.  Instead of coming to save and deliver faithful Christians and Jews, he comes instead to kill and slaughter them.  We will discuss a bit more about what the Bible has to say about the return of Jesus in a later chapter.

Chapter Seven
 

Comparing The False Prophet And The Muslim Jesus

 


 

Amazingly, the similarities between the biblical narratives of the end-times and the Islamic narratives do not end with the Antichrist and the Mahdi.  If it were so, then it might be easier to dismiss the many similarities as mere coincidence.  The parallels however, do not stop with the Antichrist and the Mahdi, but extend again quite clearly, into the person of the man biblically known as the False Prophet and the man known in Islam as Isa al-Masih – Jesus the Messiah. 

 

The specific plan of Satan down through the ages is articulated clearly in the Bible.  The Bible teaches that Satan will raise up not one, but two men as his agents in the earth to lure men away from the worship of The One True God.  The first man that Satan will use is the Antichrist.  We have already examined his role in chapter five.  The second man is known biblically as the False Prophet.  We will examine his role next…

 

The Unholy Partnership Of The Antichrist And The False Prophet
 

The nature of the relationship of the biblical False Prophet to the Antichrist is one of a partner in crime so to speak.  It is only in the final book of the Bible that we learn about the False Prophet.  The Apostle John was the first and only author of Scripture that received revelation about this assistant to the Antichrist.  In Revelation chapter thirteen, John introduces us to the man described as “another beast” but spoken of later in Revelation as the False Prophet:

 

Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.  He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast...  And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.  Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth… Revelation 13:11-14

 

From this passage, we can determine a few things about the False Prophet.  Firstly he is called a beast - he is, like the Antichrist, a man possessed by Satan.  He is another human pawn of the Dragon, exercising the will of the Dragon on the earth.  But instead of ten horns, he only has two.  The horns speak of authority.  The power and authority of the False Prophet is clear, but it is not nearly equal to that of the Antichrist who is said to have ten horns.  We also see that the False Prophet is a miracle worker.  Among the many miracles he is said to work, one is mentioned specifically: He is said to cause fire to come down from the sky.  The False Prophet’s primary reason for performing miraculous signs is to cause the inhabitants of the earth to follow and even to worship the Antichrist.  The two are pictured as a team, a partnership with one common goal - deception, seduction and a luring away of anyone who worships Yahweh, the God of the Bible. 

 

The Unholy Partnership Of The Mahdi And The Muslim Jesus

 

Likewise in the Islamic narrative of the last-days, we do not find a lone character who is coming to rescue the world, but instead we find a team.  We find both the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus.  And as in the case of the Antichrist and the False Prophet, we find that one is clearly filling a supporting role while the other is the leader.  While the Mahdi is clearly described as being, “the Viceregent (Caliph) of Allah,” 1 Jesus is described as being one who will “espouse the cause of the Mahdi” 3 and “follow him.” 2 The partnership between the Mahdi and Jesus is one of the leader and his subordinate.  And as we have already seen, and will continue to see, the partnership of the Mahdi and Jesus is indeed an unholy partnership - particularly if you are not a Muslim and have no intention of becoming one.  If this is the case, then you are marked for death - plain and simple.  The Muslim Jesus is a twisted version of the biblical Jesus who said:

 

For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.  And this is the will of him who sent me; that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.  For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:38-40

 

Instead of espousing the “cause” of the Father, the Muslim Jesus espouses the cause of the Mahdi.  Instead of saving those followers of His whom the Father has placed under his oversight, the Muslim Jesus instead slaughters those who remain faithful to the words of Jesus as found in the Bible.  The Muslim Jesus is not the tender yet strong shepherd of the gospels, but rather The Wolf himself in the shepherd’s clothing. 

 

The False Prophet As The Antichrist’s Chief Enforcer
 

The coming of the lawless one (The Antichrist) will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.  They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.  2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

 

Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth… He performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Revelation 13:11,12

 

We see in the Bible that the False Prophet will come with “all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.”  He will perform “great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down out of heaven… (To deceive) the inhabitants of the earth.”  But after his miracle working power fails to convert every last person on the earth, his primary drive becomes to set up a system whereby the inhabitants of the earth will have only two options; worship the Antichrist or be killed.  The False Prophet is said to create some form of “image,” possibly some form of idol or statue that has the ability to “speak.”  Exactly what this “image” will be is yet to be seen. 

 

He (The False Prophet) was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. Revelation 13:15

 

There is something highly unusual about this image that “could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”  Somehow the image itself will have the ability to enforce the law of the False Prophet; it will have the ability to cause people to be killed.  This seems to work in tangent with the infamous “mark of the beast” that is part of the False Prophet’s system.  All the inhabitants of the earth will be “forced, everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:17)

 

So biblically speaking, the False Prophet is the enforcer of the Antichrist’s global worship movement.  Imagine for a moment, a miracle working evangelist who is completely possessed by Satan and refuses to take no for an answer at the threat of death.  This is exactly what the False Prophet will be. 

 

The Muslim Jesus As The Mahdi’s Chief Enforcer
 

The False Muslim Jesus according to Islam will likewise be the greatest evangelist that the world has ever seen.  He fulfills the description of the False Prophet in this regard to a tee!  We see that the false Muslim Jesus, like the False Prophet comes to convert the Christian world to a new religion.  In the case of the Muslim Jesus, the religion is, of course, Islam: 

 

When Jesus returns he will personally correct the misrepresentations and misinterpretations about himself.  He will affirm the true message that he brought in his time as a prophet, and that he never claimed to be the Son of God.  Furthermore, he will reaffirm in his second coming what he prophesied in his first coming bearing witness to the seal of the Messengers, Prophet Muhammad.  In his second coming many non-Muslims will accept Jesus as a servant of Allah Almighty, as a Muslim and a member of the Community of Muhammad. 4

 

Though based merely on this description, Jesus’ power to convert seems based more on the simple fact of the persuasiveness of his words, presence and actions than any specific mention of miracles.  Just like the False Prophet however, the Muslim Jesus refuses to take no for an answer.  As seen above, Jesus, along with the Mahdi, institutes the Islamic Law all over the earth and in so doing, abolishes the Jizyah Tax which non-Muslims historically have had the option of paying as “protection” money not much unlike the “protection” money that mafia bosses extort from businesses in their area.  After the time that the Jizyah tax is abolished, “all people will be required to embrace Islam and there will be no other alternative.” 5 But what if some still refuse to convert?  Then, as we have already seen, the leaders of the so-called “religion of peace,” the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will have them executed.

 

The False Prophet As Executioner
 

From the Bible’s description of the False Prophet we learn that one of the primary motives behind his plan in creating this “image in honor of the beast” is so that those who refuse to worship it are killed:

 

He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.  Revelation 13:14,15

 

Later there is a specific reference to the exact form in which these people will be killed:

 

And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. Revelation 20:4

 

The Bible tells us that those who refuse to participate in the system established by the False Prophet, who refuse to worship the Antichrist or his image will be killed.  The specific method that the Bible highlights is beheading.  We will discuss this fact in more detail in a later chapter.  The False Prophet will be the greatest executioner that the world has ever known.

 

The Muslim Jesus As Executioner

 

And how different is the Muslim Jesus?  We have already examined the Islamic traditions that establish that Jesus will abolish the Jizyah tax thus leaving only two options for Christians and Jews worldwide: convert to Islam or die.

 

Jesus, the son of Mary will soon descend among the Muslims as a just judge… Jesus will, therefore, judge according to the law of Islam… all people will be required to embrace Islam and there will be no other alternative. 6

 

The time and the place for [the poll tax] is before the final descent of Jesus. After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent 7

 

We have also seen the Islamic traditions that picture Jesus as being the leader of an army that slaughters tens of thousands of Jews who are all said to be followers of the Dajjal (Antichrist).

The Yahudis (Jews)… will be his main followers. 8

Isa (Jesus) kills the Dajjal at the Gate of Hudd, near an Israeli airport, in the valley of “Ifiq.”  The final war between the Yahudi’s will ensue, and the Muslims will be victorious.  9

In the Last Hour Muslims will fight with Jews.  Since the Jews are an integral part of the army of the Dajjal, and Muslims are the soldiers of the Prophet Jesus, they will fight each other and the Muslims will become triumphant until even a stone or a tree would say:  Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me; kill him. 10

The biblical False Prophet and the Muslim Jesus are both described as establishing a system of Law that will enforce the mass execution of anyone who refuses to convert to the new global religion. 

 

A Dragon In Sheep’s Clothing

 

We have all heard the expression “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”  Most people don’t know that Jesus is the originator of this saying.  Interestingly, when Jesus coined this expression, he was referring specifically to false prophets.  The exact phrase was, "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves” (Matthew 7:15).  Likewise, The False Prophet to whom all other false prophets are merely a foreshadowing is described by the Apostle John as one who, “had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon” (Revelation 13:11).  This is to say that the False Prophet will appear to be mild and gentle – a “lamb-like” person, but inwardly he is a man who is literally possessed by Satan himself.  He will be filled with deception, murder, rage and hatred.  His purpose will be to deceive as many people as he can into worshipping the Dragon.

 

The appearance of the False Prophet as “a lamb” may also quite possibly be a reference to notion that the False Prophet will claim to literally be The Lamb, Jesus Christ (John 1:36; Revelation 5:6,13).  This would make sense if we look a bit more closely at Jesus’ warnings to His disciples in Matthew chapter 24.  Repeatedly, Jesus warns his disciples of the many false prophets who will come in the last-days, but in the very first warning that Jesus gives His disciples when they ask him about the nature of the Final Hour before His return, Jesus says, "Watch out that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4-5)  While I do not believe that every false prophet that will emerge in the last-days will literally claim to be Christ himself, it is clear from this passage that some will.  And if The False Prophet of Revelation 13 is the archetype and very model for all other false prophets, then it also stands to reason that the False Prophet may very well claim to be Jesus Christ himself.  This of course is a perfectly brilliant (though infinitely evil) plan.  Who else better could you imagine to have as your back-up man and your primary minister of propaganda than someone whom much of the world believes to be Jesus Christ himself?  It appears that this is what Satan has planned for the Antichrist/Mahdi. 

 

Conclusion

 

Muslims are very fond of using Jesus as an evangelistic tool among Christians.  Numerous Muslim books have been published which extol the greatness of Jesus and express a deep love for Him.  One Muslim web site even proclaims that “Jesus led me to Islam.”  Muslims use Jesus as a lure to draw Christians in, in order to convince them of the truth of Islam.  But the advertised Jesus of Islam is much different than the Muslim Jesus that comes to reveal his true identity as the most radical of fundamentalist Muslims.  The Jesus that returns in Muslim tradition makes Osama Bin Laden look like a novice.  He is pictured as coming to establish Islamic Law across the face of the planet that would legalize the execution of anyone who refuses to convert to Islam.  He is pictured as leading the army that will slaughter tens of thousands of Jews who are said to be followers of the Dajjal.  If ever such a person existed that could rightly be described as a “beast,” then surely, the Muslim Jesus is such a man.

 

Muslims are awaiting a man to come that will claim to be Jesus Christ.  He would be presented as a lamb.  If such a man ever exists, he will claim according to Islamic tradition, that he has been alive in heaven for the past two thousand years, waiting to return to complete his life and accomplish his mission on the earth.  Such a man would be a liar.  He would be a true student of his master, the father of lies.  He would come to fulfill what the Bible expresses to be the chief boiling desires of Satan, to either deceive Christians and Jews – indeed the entire earth into worshipping him or to slaughter them.  In the Bible, we see that it is for these very purposes that Satan will empower his False Prophet.  The biblical description of the False Prophet and the Islamic description of the Muslim Jesus, on all the essential points, are identical.

Chapter Eight
 
The Dajjal: Islam’s Antichrist
 

 

 

The third primary character that dominates Islamic eschatology is a man whose full title is Al-Maseeh (The Messiah) Ad-Dajjal, (The Liar/Deceiver).  Usually just referred to as the Dajjal, he is a bizarre character whose description and story seem far more fantastic than either the Mahdi or the Muslim Jesus.  There are numerous hadith that contain descriptions of the Dajjal.  Here we will just touch on the most common of these traditions to give an overview of just who this mysterious and strange person is. 

 

The Great Deceiver
 

The Dajjal is described as being a deceiver who will have miraculous powers and who will temporarily hold power over the whole earth:

 

The Prophet was warning us that in the last days there would be someone who would deceive all of humanity.  The Dajjal will possess power over this world.  Thus, Muslims must be careful not to have the love of the world in their hearts so they won’t leave their religion and follow him.  He will be able to heal the sick by wiping his hand on them, like Jesus did, but with this deceit the Dajjal will lead people down the path to hell.  Thus the Dajjal is the false Messiah, or Anti-Christ (Massih ad-Dajjal).  He will pretend to be the Messiah, and deceive people by showing them amazing powers. 1

 

He is One Eyed
 

Possibly the most frequently quoted reference to the Dajjal is that he is blind in one eye.  The Hadith however, are contradictory regarding which eye is blind:

 

Allah's Messenger made a mention of Dajjal in the presence of the people and said: Allah is not one-eyed and behold that Dajjal is blind of the right eye and his eye would be like a floating grape. 2

 

Allah's Messenger said: Dajjal is blind of left eye with thick hair and there would be a garden and fire with him and his fire would be a garden and his garden would be fire. 3

 

Infidel
 

The Dajjal is sometimes said to have the word “Infidel” (Kaafir) written in-between his eyes, possibly on his forehead.  But this word will only be perceptible to true Muslims, and no one else:

 

Allah's Messenger said: Dajjal is blind of one eye and there is written between his eyes the word "kaafir" (unbeliever/infidel). He then spelled the word as k. f. r., which every Muslim would be able to read. 4

 

Very Important is that; this word “Kafir” will be readable only by the believer, literate or illiterate.  Non-believer: let him be educated from “Oxford” or “Harvard” will not be able to read it. 5

 

A False Miracle Worker
 

Sheikh Kabbani describes some of the Dajjal’s miraculous powers:

 

The Dajjal will have powers of the devil.  He will terrorize the Muslims into following him, converting them into unbelief.  He will conceal the truth and bring forth falsehood.  The prophet said that the Dajjal will have the power to show the image of one’s dead ancestors on his hand, like a television screen.  The relative will say, “Oh my son! This man is correct.  I am in Paradise because I was good and I believed in him.”  In reality that relative is in hell.  If the relative says, “Believe in this man, I am in hell because I didn’t believe,” one must say to the Dajjal, “No, he is in Paradise.  This is false.” 6

 

The Prophet said: the Dajjal will say to a Bedouin Arab, “what will you think if I bring your father and mother back to life for you? Will you bear witness that I am your lord?  The Bedouin will say, “Yes.”  So two devils will assume the appearance of his father and mother, and say, “O my son, follow him for he is your lord…” 7

 

The Dajjal Will Claim To Be Jesus Christ And Will Claim To Be Divine
 

The above tradition shows that the Dajjal’s deceptive signs will be for the purpose of leading people into believing that the Dajjal is actually their “lord”. Muslim scholars universally have concluded that the Dajjal will claim to be divine.  According to the very well known Muslim scholar, Abu Ameenah Bilal Phillips, the Dajjal, “will claim to be God”. 8 

 

While there are no specific traditions that state such directly, as a result of the fact that the Dajjal is, according to Islamic tradition, the false Jewish Messiah who claims to be God, most Muslims have deduced that the Dajjal will thus claim to be Jesus Christ by name.

 

 

The Dajjal And His Magic Mule
 

Muslim Scholar Muhammad Ali ibn Zubair Ali says of the Dajjal, “ He will travel at great speeds and his means of conveyance will be a giant mule… He will travel the entire world.” 9 As strange as this is, it also bears a faint resemblance to Jesus the Messiah who also rode a donkey as he entered Jerusalem during the final week of his ministry.

Cities Of Refuge
It is said that there are three cities that the Dajjal may not enter; Mecca, Medina and Damascus.  Muslims are encouraged to seek refuge from the Dajjal in one of these three cities:

 

The Prophet said, "Ad-Dajjal will come to Medina and find the angels guarding it. So Allah willing, neither Ad-Dajjal, nor plague will be able to come near it." 10

 

The coming of the Anti-Christ (Dajjal) must occur in the Last Days.  This dreadful event is approaching, and in that time only three cities will be safe: Makka, Madina, and Sham (Damascus).  If anyone wants safety in that time he will have to run to one of these three cities. 11

 

Apart from these three cities, it is said that the Dajjal will enter every single city, town and village in the world to test and possibly deceive every human alive. 12

 

A Surah Of Protection

 

Muslims believe that if they memorize a particular portion of the Quran that they will be protected from the Dajjal.  It is somewhat like a verbal amulet that protects one from the powers of evil:

 

If the Dajjal comes upon someone who has memorized the first ten verses of Surat al Kahf (Chapter of the Cave) he cannot harm him. And whoever memorizes the last verses of Surat al-Kahf will have light on the day of Judgement. 13

 

He will be Jewish And Will Be Followed by Jews and Women
 

Based on various Islamic traditions, Muslims believe that the Dajjal will be Jewish.  The title of a book by Muslim author Matloob Ahmed Qasmi, Emergence of the Dajjal, the Jewish King couldn’t make this point more clearly.  Imam Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi of the Palestinian Authority articulated the Islamic perspective regarding the expectation of the Jewish people quite well in one of his sermons:

 

The Jews await the false Jewish messiah, while we await, with Allah's help… the Mahdi and Jesus, peace be upon him.  Jesus's pure hands will murder the false Jewish messiah.  Where?  In the city of Lod, in Palestine. Palestine will be, as it was in the past, a graveyard for the invaders 14

 

Samuel Shahid, a Christian Arab scholar in his scholarly study of Islamic eschatology says of the Dajjal that he will be, “the embodiment of the Jewish hope and longing.  The bulk of his army is recruited from the Jews.”15

 

As mentioned in the last chapter, the followers of the Dajjal will primarily consist of Jews and women.  It is mentioned that women are very ignorant and as such are easily misled.  Veliankode states, “Meanwhile, women will also fall to the deviant line of the Antichrist because of their unawareness and ignorance of Islam.” 16

 

Slain By The Muslim Jesus

 

As mentioned in the last chapter, it will be the Muslim Jesus who will kill the Dajjal and his followers:

 

Allah's Messenger said: …the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus son of Mary would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah (Dajjal) would see him… Allah would kill them by his (Jesus’) hand and he would show them their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ). 17

Chapter Nine
 

Comparing The Biblical Jesus And The Dajjal
 

 

 

The third amazing parallel between biblical eschatology and Islamic eschatology is the person of the Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist figure.  Despite all of the wild and fantastic descriptions of the Dajjal, if we boil down the Muslim belief regarding the Dajjal to its simplest and most important terms, we basically have a man who will claim to be divine and will claim to be Jesus Christ the Jewish Messiah.  He will defend Israel against the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus and he will deceive many people into leaving Islam.

 

While I certainly do not believe that there will ever come a figure into the world as described in the Islamic traditions - a great deceiver who is blind in one eye, flying around the earth on some form of giant mule - there will however come Jesus (the real one), who will in many very crucial ways, fulfill the Muslim expectations of the Dajjal. 

 

The Return Of Jesus Christ

 

The real Jesus however, will indeed come as a divine defender of Israel and her people as well as Israel’s spiritual children, the Christians.  If the Islamic prophecies are indeed intertwined with the unfolding of biblical prophecy, then we can see that part of Satan’s strategy is that when the real Jesus returns, there will already be a worldwide religious leader who will also be claiming to be Jesus, namely the False Prophet.  If this were the case, then Muslims worldwide would accuse the real Jesus of being the Dajjal, the Muslim Antichrist/Great Deceiver.  Muslims would be particularly convinced of this in light of the fact that the surviving Jews of the earth will acknowledge Jesus as their Messiah.  At least six hundred years before Islam ever existed, the Jewish Prophets and the Jewish Apostles described the event of Jesus returning to Israel, defeating her enemies and finally gaining full acceptance among the Jewish people:

 

On that day I (The Lord) will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.  And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.  They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. Zechariah 12:10

 

A day of the Lord is coming... the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle.  On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives.  Zechariah 14:1,3,4

 

And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.”  Romans 11:26

 

Put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God… Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel… Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb (Jesus the Messiah), standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had His name and His Father's name written on their foreheads… And they sang a new song…  Revelation 7:3-4; 14:1,3

 

We see that when Jesus returns to “to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem,” “His feet will (literally) stand on the Mount of Olives.”   Jesus will be physically present in Israel.  At this time, it is said that those Jews who are alive in Israel will see him and realize that He is “the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him.”  Thus the acknowledgement of Jesus as the genuine Jewish Messiah and divine Savior will fill their hearts and, “so all Israel will be saved.” 

 

The Islamic Traditions
 

Of course, based on the Islamic traditions, Muslims are expecting Jews to acknowledge the Dajjal as the divine Jewish Messiah, thus in the Islamic mind, the Jesus of biblical tradition will fulfill the three most primary Islamic expectations of the Dajjal.  Clearly, these traditions will be used by Satan, not only to pre-empt the Muslims of the earth from receiving the real Jesus when He comes, but literally to empower them to attack Him.  The plot never seems to stop thickening.  Consider the following statement by the well-known Muslim apologist, Osamah Abdallah.  The question posited to him was, “What do Muslims believe about the end of the World and Jesus' part in it?”  His answer is astonishing as it relates to this discussion:

 

Briefly, Christians believe that Jesus will come down to earth and fight for the state of Israel… What seems to be quite ironic to me is that those Jews that Jesus is supposedly going to fight for don't even believe in Jesus as GOD himself nor as a Messenger of GOD… Jesus never liked the Jews... Now without being biased, we Muslims have a story that makes a lot more sense and is empty of contradictions!  We believe that Jesus will come down to earth toward the end of the world time to fight the army of Satan which will be mostly from the "bad" Jews or "Zionist Jews" as we call them today, and the deceived from the Polytheist Christians or the Trinitarian Christians and the Pagan Polytheists such as Hindus, Buddhists, etc....  Some Jews and many Christians will be among the good and blessed who will fight with Jesus' side.  The army of Satan will be led by a person who will claim to be Jesus Christ himself.  The Muslims will call him the Dajjal or the Deceiver.  The real Jesus' army will fight the Dajjal's army and defeat him.  The empire of Israel will fall, and the religion of Islam will prevail. 1

 

This is quite amazing.  We see that as a direct result of the Islamic apocalyptic traditions, Muslims are expecting two Jesuses to come; the real one and the false one.  By Mr. Abdallah’s admission, the real Jesus will be identifiable by the fact that he does not like Jews; indeed he is expected to attack and slaughter them.  Likewise the false Jesus (according to Islam) will be clearly identifiable by the fact that he will defend the Jews.  Thus, as we have seen, Mr. Abdallah and Muslims everywhere are expecting the Muslim Jesus, along with his leader, the Mahdi, to attack Israel and do battle against Him who Christians understand to be the real Jesus.  The battle of Armageddon as prophesied in the Bible may indeed be coming into very clear focus.
