SHEIHU RASHID HUSSAIN SALWAT

(QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)

YEAR OF PROPHET YAQUB, WITH EFFECT FROM TUESDAY,December, 6, 2011

 

INTRODUCTION:

We give thanks to God and pray for peace and blessings to be upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his household. God taught man by the Pen and taught him what he knew not (Q 96:1-5). The mystery of knowledge was conferred on man and he was thus charged with the mystic meaning of everything including particular qualities of Feelings and Love.

Among the mystic meanings of knowledge is “Ayaam ul-Lah”, or “Days of Allah”. It also means (the unfolding of the scriptures). The Islamic concept of unfolding the scriptures is as old as time itself. In Quran 45: 14 we are told; “Tell those who believe, to forgive those who do not believe in the Days of Allah: it is His responsibility to reward each People according to what they have earned.” Also in Quran 14:5 it says; “We sent Musah (AS) with Our Signs commanding him to, “bring out his people from the depth of ignorance into the light of knowledge, and also to teach them to remember the “Days of Allah.” Verily in the concept of unfolding the scriptures, there are Signs for those who are steadfast and grateful”.

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), explained “Ayaam ul-Lah”, or “Days of Allah” which was narrated by Muslim. He said, on the authority of Ubaiyi the Prophet (SAW) explained that, “Allah’s Days are some days of the year that are of fortunes and some others that are of misfortunes”. (Muslim, Book of Fadaail, Hadith No. 4386).  In most cases, solutions are prescribed to curb and prevent the misfortunes not to occur.


WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SAY; 2012

1.  GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS

Most countries will face serious economic difficulties. The socio-economic policies of the world need to be reviewed and should be aimed at empowering the masses by promoting the well-being of the youth. Much effort should therefore be made to get the unemployed youth employed in order to curb future global economic crises.

2. FOOD INSECURITY / HUNGER

There shall be food insecurity resulting into hunger globally.  Already, some countries such as Somalia, Kenya, Bangladesh, North Korea etc. are victims to the severe hunger situation. The hunger situation in North Korea for instance is so severe that, people are starving to the extent that, they eat grass just to survive.

3. POLITICAL AGITATION AND ELECTORAL DISPUTES

There shall be serious political agitations resulting in electoral disputes in some countries around the world. Mostly the youth of these countries will call for new leadership in their various countries. All political and election issues should be aimed at promoting peace in the world. Elections must therefore be conducted freely and handled with absolute fairness in order to avoid political turmoil and disputes.

4. UPRISINGS/ PUBLIC UNREST

The current uprisings and public unrest in some countries will continue. Pressure will be put to bear on governments for political change due to economic difficulties.

5. NEW BIRTHS, INFANT MORTALITY AND MATERNAL DEATHS

There shall be so many new births thus, many children would be born into the world, but at the same time, the world will experience high rate of infant mortality and rampant maternal death through child birth.

6. SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS

Extreme cold and heat conditions shall be experienced and these could be dangerous to life in general. Disasters such as Earthquakes, Floods, Volcanic Eruptions, Land-slides, Storms, etc will also continue. Some Asian Countries will be mostly affected. This is as a result of the unbalanced position of the earth. Too much weight is skewed to one side of the globe above the equator. Meanwhile strange bodies or heavy objects would be deposited by Extra Celestial beings on the earth’s surface to help man gain a balance state for the earth in order to minimise the said disasters like Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, and Floods etc. The strange heavy bodies and objects if deposited shall be discovered in their places of deposit.

7. UNBALANCED WORLD (EARTH)

Global warming currently is seen as a very dangerous phenomenon, frantic efforts are being made to arrest the situation. There is yet a more serious and a more dangerous situation that is either not realized or has been over looked, “The Unbalanced Earth,” this situation gives course to all the disasters like floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions etc. that we experience. For the avoidance and prevention of such disasters in the future, world scientists should first and foremost make a thorough research into the “unbalanced” nature of the earth. If this proves to be so, then the Scientists should also determine whether the unbalanced nature of the earth in weight, could not possibly be the cause of all the disasters we are experiencing. If that also proves to be so the Scientists should make serious efforts in finding a solution to the problem by constructing heavy structures on the opposite side of the equator to bring about a balance.

 

8. FALLING OF COMETS ON EARTH

Some comets and asteroids from outer space will fall onto the surface of the earth. These will course considerable damage to human life. It might be the most dangerous moments of our history on earth. Some of these if detected earlier could be destroyed half way in space by us before they reach the earth’s surface.

9. RACISM

Racism will show and work practically as if it was an acceptable norm.

10. ACCIDENTS

Accidents will be very common on land, at sea and in air, mostly due to human errors.

11. WARS (INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL)

Some countries will go to war against others and internally political opponents will rise against each other in quest for power. Such situations are already experienced in some countries around the world where hundreds of thousand of human lives are lost. Apart from the human lives lost, hundreds of millions of US Dollars have been wasted on such senseless wars, whiles over nine (9) million people especially women and children die of starvation. According to the United Nations report this year about 25 thousand people die every day of hunger or hunger related courses. That is to say in every three and half seconds one person dies of hunger.

12. MISSION TO THE PLANET MARS

The mission of the spacecraft “Curiosity” to Mars will not be successful. This mission will be aborted by the “Extra Celestial Beings”. The Extra Celestial beings are more advanced than the ordinary human being and can see upon the earth surface, and see the human cruelties and brutality and for that matter, they feel that the humans have a long way to go as far as civilization is concerned, hence their interference to abort the intended Mission. The Extra Celestial beings are disgusted at the wars, hunger and diseases situation of the world as indicated in item 10 above.  They will send down messages that the Human Beings on earth have woefully neglected their responsibility of paying attention to and addressing the problems of the earth like hunger, diseases and wars. And that vigorous disarmament of the nations with weapons of mass destruction should be pursued for absolute peace to prevail in the world. It is only then that probes to space would be successful and not interfered by those beings.

The above exposition serves as an early warning to the humans. They should be seriously taken particularly by the world leaders and bodies and work with to bring about peace and eradicate hunger, diseases and war in the world for the well-being of everyone.

World leaders and bodies should review and redesign their policies on global economics and sacrifice their parochial interests and rather establish a truly new socio-economic frame work of responsibility, love, justice, tolerance and generosity to benefit all and sundry. They should prevent enslavement of some nations by others and human trafficking. By implementing the above, God willing, peace will reign in the world.

13. THE MEDIA

The world absolutely depends on the media for information. The reports presented by the media should therefore be based on accurate information and the right education on issues. Most of the tensions that will degenerate into conflicts and further result into wars could be diffused by the media probably causing them not to happen at all. In view of the above, the media should therefore be circumspect in their reportage to avoid creating situations that will give rise to human sufferings or wars.
