Doomsday December 21, 2012, End of The World?

Predictions about the end of this world by Mayan Calendar have brought discomposure in the minds of people. Everybody is anxiously trying to anticipate the factors stimulating destruction of the Earth.

Prophecies of Mayan Calendar:

The Mayan calendar predicts that the “long cycle” will come to an end on December 21, 2012. We are currently in the 4th cycle recorded by the Maya. It started in 3114B.C. and lasts for 5126 years until 2012. With the end of the 4th cycle comes… the beginning of the 5th cycle. The Maya believe that in the 5th cycle the ancient wisdom of the Maya will be rediscovered by the world and it will be a new dawn for mankind. Mayans are highly skilled people and are capable of creating many different calendars. It is said that the information available in the calendar is very accurate.

Astronomical Facts Regarding December 21, 2012:

Every year 21st December is seen to be a day winter solstice. It is the day when the sun is at its southernmost point. Besides Winter solstice, others claim that the Earth and the Milky Way’s center will align together, leading to undesirable disasters.

Polar Shift Catastrophe:

From pole shift to earth’s lost geomagnetism to massive earthquakes to erupting volcanoes to tidal waves to floods and there would be massive destruction to life on earth.

Magnetic Field Effect:

Because of the weakened magnetic fields the earth may not protect us against cosmic and solar radiation which would affect the nuclear reactors on the nuclear power plants. Buildings and skyscrapers will be shattered and a cloud of volcanic dust will cling.

74,000 year cycle of super volcano:

2012 completes a 74,000 year cycle of super volcano, all signs point towards a massive under water calamities resulting in the culmination of Earth.

There are many other factors that advocate the end of this world according to Mayan like, global warming, drastic weather changes, Tsunami earthquakes, Wars and Nuclear chain reactions etc.

Islamic Prophecies about End of the World

We can derive a lot of information about historical events and future prophecies from Qur’an as it is the book that reveals many truths about the creation of this world and other natural phenomenon. There are many signs of doomsday stated in Quran and told by Prophet (PBUH) as it was one of the duties of God’s Messenger to unveil the end of the world.

“God is the Knower of the future; He does not permit anyone to unveil such knowledge. Only through the messenger that He chooses does He reveal future and past events” 72:27

Being Muslims we believe that only God has the knowledge of future and he has unveiled few signs through His Messenger (PBUH) through which we can conclude the time of end of this world but still no one ever can judge the exact time.

“The Hour (End of the World) is surely coming; I will keep it almost hidden. For each soul must be paid for its works.” 20:15

End of the World Coded in Quran:

Quran has stated about the culmination of this world as:

“The day will come when this earth will be substituted with a new earth, and also the heavens, and everyone will be brought before GOD, the One, the Supreme.” 14:48

“When the horn is blown once. The earth and the mountains will be carried off and crushed; utterly crushed. That is the day when the inevitable event will come to pass.” 69:13-15

Signs of Approaching End of the World

The splitting of the moon:

This already happened in June 1969 when man landed on the moon and brought back moon rocks. People on earth can go now to many museums, colleges and observatories to look at pieces of the moon.

“The Hour has come closer, and the moon has split.” 54:1

The Creature (27:82):

The Quran has predicted that at the right time God will produce a creature that will be instrumental in unveiling God’s signs. This was fulfilled, the creature was the computer which was instrumental in unveiling the Quran’s numerical code, and proclaiming that the world has neglected God’s message.

“At the right time, we will produce for them a creature, made of earthly materials, declaring that the people are not certain about our revelations.” 27:82

Gog and Magog:

They re-appear, in accordance with God’s plan, in the year 1700 AH (2271 AD). Gog and Magog are mentioned in 18:94 and 21:96. If you count the verses from 18:94 to the end of Sura 18, you find them 17. If you count the verses from 21:96 to the end of Sura 21, you find them also 17. This is the Quran’s sign that Gog and Magog will re-appear in 1700 AH.

“They said, ‘O Zul-Qarnain, Gog and Magog are corruptors of the earth. Can we pay you to create a barrier between us and them?” 18:94

Appearance of God’s Messenger of the Covenant (3:8l):

A consolidating messenger, prophesied in the Quran, comes after all the prophets have delivered the scriptures, to purify and unify. This prophecy was fulfilled in Ramadan 1408.

Reappearance of Jesus:

Another indication given in the Quran as a code for unveiling the end of the world is derived from the following verse:

“He (Jesus) is to serve as a marker for knowing the end of the world so that you can no longer harbour any doubt about it” 43:61

There are many other signs of end of the world revealed through Quran Recitation, like, appearance of Imam Mehdi, appearance of Dajjal, 72 apostates in Islam, Landslides, Earthquakes, rising of the suns from west etc.

If the Third World War is fought with nuclear weapons, the fourth will be fought with bows and arrows. ” Lord Louis Mountbatten
“ I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. ”Albert Einstein

It is our firm belief that nobody ever can estimate the exact time of end of the world, regardless of all the signs stated by Mayan and other resources, there are many other signs yet to appear before us. The end of times is near for sure, we should live our lives according to the teachings of Islam rather than believing on rumors and speculations.
