QuestionWe often hear that the Final Hour will not come to pass until Islam prevails on earth. But we also hear that it be come to pass when there is no one who says La ilahah illallah. How can we reconcile between the two statements?Answer
Both statements are correct. It is authentically reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said that the Final Hour will not come to pass until Isa, son of Maryam, whom Allah saved from evil, comes down on earth, kills the Pseudo Christ and thw swine and breaks the cross. During his era, wealth will become in abundance. Hew will waive the Jizyah and accept from the people only Islam or the sword. Allah ill abolish during his era, all religions except Islam. Prostration will be to Allah Alone.
This indicated clear that Islam during Prophet Isa time , may Allah render him safe from every derogatory thing, will prevail on earth, with no other faith beside it. It is also authentically reported that the Final Hour will not come to pass while only evil people are alive. Allah the Exalted, will send a pleasant breeze after the death of Isa, may Allah render him safe from every derogatory thing, after the sun rises from the west. This breeze will collect the soul over every believer, man or woman. After which there will remain alive only evil people upon whom the Final Hour will come to pass.
