(QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)

1. There will be Food sufficiency in most parts of the world. There will be beneficial rains and food production will be high with good yields.

2. Businesses will flourish in some countries. Naturally some economies will overcome their economic difficulties even with the least effort in their economic management.

3. Natural disasters like Land-slides, Storms, Lightening, Thunder and Floods will occur very commonly. This is as a result of the unbalance nature of the world; there is too much weight on one side. This situation can be rectified by constructing huge structures such as pyramids below the equator.

4. Air and Sea Disasters would continue to strike.

5. Extreme Weather conditions that could be harmful to human beings, animals and plants;

6. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions would occur commonly

7. Outbreak of Epidemics;

8. Public unrest in some countries due to political differences and in some cases economic difficulties. World leaders should promote peace and tranquility in their various countries. The greatest challenge that the human race has ever faced and is still facing today is to live in a world free of threat and free of violence. Violence exists everywhere nowadays, in our homes, schools and communities.

9. Death of the Youth. They should take life serious. They would have very serious consequences in alcohol and sex related problems.

10. Death of Prominent Chiefs and Heads; globally.

11. Territorial, tribal and racial disputes developing into wars. The issue of permanent peace in the world should be of great concern to all of us. Peace is not just the absence of war but a state of living without fear and grief and the ability to access basic necessities of life. In order to avoid disputes and wars, politicians and opinion leaders should make concerted efforts to refrain from doing anything that will disturb the existing peace we are currently enjoying. The culture of insult from our political leaders in Ghana is not the best. Our politicians should do all they can to lead exemplary lives by fostering unity amongst the people. The media should also be circumspect in their reportage. The media should not entertain people who would want to use them to bring about public disturbances.

12. New discoveries and inventions. Muslim leaders and scholars should collaborate with world scientists to unearth some useful technologies to make life much more comfortable and easier and to solve some of the worlds’ major problems.
