Our Prophet (saas) Foretold the Current Events in Iraq and Foretold ISIS 1,400 years ago
All the details of the events taking place in the Middle East that we follow from the media today were foretold by our Prophet (saas) 1,400 years ago. This is a great miracle.
1. THOSE WITH BLACK BANNERS WOULD APPEAR FROM THE EAST
WHEN THOSE WITH BLACK BANNERS APPEAR IN Khorasan’... (Ghaybah Numani, p. 228)
In the hadith, our Prophet (saas) draws attention to the black banners who would appear from the East. As we know, al-Qaida appeared with black banners from the East.
2. AGAIN FROM THE EAST ANOTHER GROUP WITH BLACK BANNERS WOULD APPEAR
... Once they proceed for a while, THIS TIME SMALL BLACK BANNERS APPEAR…(Hadith from the compilation of Jalaladdin Suyuti, The Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, p.61, hadith no. 7.77)
As is known, while ISIS was a part of al-Qaida before, they parted ways. That is, following al-Qaida, in other words, the big black banners, this time ISIS had small black banners instead.
3. BEFORE THE APPEARANCE OF BLACK BANNERS THERE WILL BE FIGHTING IN SYRIA
“Following the three portents await the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as).”
They asked him: “What are these portents?”
“THE MUTUAL DISPUTES OF SYRIANS, appearance of those with black flags from Khorasan and fear in the month of Ramadan.” (Bihâr Al-Anwâr, 14)
4. THOSE WITH BLACK FLAGS WILL REMAIN IN SYRIA...And again WHEN A MAN WITH SMALL BLACK FLAG IS SEEN FROMSHAAM (SYRIA)… (Hadith from the compilation of Jalaladdin Suyuti, The Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, p.61, hadith no. 7.8)
... Another portent of (Mahdi’s appearance) is that THE SOLDIERS OF THE ARMY WITH BLACK BANNERS TIE THEIR HORSES TO THE OLIVE TREES IN SHAAM.... (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 23)
5. THEY WILL FIGHT AGAINST ASSAD
... THEY FIGHT AGAINST A MAN FROM THE DESCENT OF SUFYAN... (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 29)
The hadith refers to Hafiz Assad, who carried out great massacres against Muslims during his reign, as the Sufyan. Consequently the person from the lineage of Sufyan, with whom those with black banners will fight, is Bashar Assad.
6. THEY WILL TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO IRAQ AFTER SYRIA
BLACK BANNERS appear BELONGING TO BENI ABBAS (IRAQ)…(Nuaym bin Hammad, Qitab al-Fitan)
THEY WILL KILL (THOSE OPPOSING THEM) ON THE LAND AND SEA ON THEIR CITIES ON THE BANKS OF EUPHRATES. (Ghaybah Nomani, p. 327)
7. THEY WILL OBTAIN RESULTS VERY QUICKLY
While they are in this situation,, flags from Khorosan will come, THEY WILL MOVE SWIFTLY. (Ghaybah Nomani, p. 327)
They will return from there with an army and seize Kufa and Basra IN ONE NIGHT… (Qitab al-Haft Al Sharif, p.174)
8. THE CITIES THEY ENTER WILL ALMOST BE PRESENTED TO THEM
Once this is not given to them, they will triumph by making war and WHAT THEY WANT WILL BE PRESENTED TO THEM. (Majlisî, Bihâr al-Anwâr, v.51, p.87)
9. THEIR HAIR AND BEARDS WILL BE LONG
HIS (the commander of the black banners) SOLDIERS’ HAIR AND BEARDS WILL BE VERY LONG, their clothes are black,and THEY ARE THE MEN OF BLACK BANNERS. (Ghaybah Nomani, p.303)
10. THEY WILL CARRY OUT ENORMOUS MASSACRES
God will send a hard-hearted person with no known lineage and triumphs will be with him… THEY WILL KILL THEM (those opposing them) EN MASSE WITHOUT SEEING ANY DIFFERENCE. (Ghaybah Nomani, p. 303)
11. THEY WILL PROCEED TOWARDS QUFA
THOSE WITH BLACK FLAGS appearing from Khorasan COME DOWN TO QUFA... (Hadith from the compilation of Jalaluddun Suyuti, The Portents of The Mahdi of the End Times, p.61, hadith no: 7.12)
12. THEY WILL ALSO TARGET JERUSALEM
From Khorasan THOSE WITH BLACK BANNERS WILL APPEAR AND UNTIL THEY PLANT A FLAG IN ILYA (JERUSALEM), no one can stop them. (Hadith from the compilation of Jalaluddun Suyuti, The Portents of The Mahdi of the End Times, p.61, hadith no: 7.3)
13. DUE TO THE INCREASE IN VIOLENCE AND CONFLICT, PEOPLE WILL ASK FOR MAHDI
A great war occurs. Ultimately those with black banners triumph. The forces of Sufyan flee. AT THAT TIME, PEOPLE DESIRE MAHDI AND SEEK HIM. (Hadith from the compilation of Jalaluddun Suyuti, The Portents of The Mahdi of the End Times, p.61, hadith no: 7.26)
14. THOSE WITH BLACK BANNERS WILL ULTIMATELY OBEY MAHDI
...and THEY COME UNDER THE OBEDIENCE OF MAHDI. (Imam Suyûtî)
But they will not accept it and GIVE IT TO MAHDI, WHO IS OF MY OWN DESCENT…(Majlisi Bihar al-Anwar, v.51,p. 87)
15. IN THE TIME OF MAHDI, WARS WILL COME TO AN ULTIMATE END AND NOT A DROP OF BLOOD WILL BE SPILLED
One of the main attributes of the Mahdi is his not spilling any blood. It is not the Mahdi who sheds blood, gets into wars or oppresses people. Such false Mahdis are doomed to failure.
(Mahdi) has such a justice that, EVEN A SLEEPING PERSON WOULD NOT BE AWOKEN AND NOT A DROP OF BLOOD WILL BE SHED. (Majlusi, Bihar al-Anwar, v. 51, p.87)
THE ARMIES WILL LEAVE THEIR BURDENS (THAT IS, WEAPONS ETC.). No enmity will remain among people. All enmities, struggle, jealousy, oppositions will definitely disappear. (Imam Sharani, Death-Doomsday-Hereafter and the End Times, p. 496)
As it is seen clearly, all that our Prophet (saas) said is coming true one by one. The incidents taking place in the Middle East and the world proceed as was related by our Prophet (saas).
It is a great miracle that all these portents related in the hadith come into existence. However these miracles are ignored by many Islamic scholars in our day. Yet even if they make effort to conceal them, we are in the last phase of the world.
By God’s will we will all see Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as).
