“Just before the Hour, there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will spread, and there will be Al-Harj in abundance, and Al-Harj means killing.”
Today we are honored to accompany you into the fascinating world of Islam, which means the religion of peace. In this present day, we share our planetary home with more than 1.9 billion Muslims, who strive to follow the noble and compassionate example of the Beloved Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him. From dawn to night, the Islamic prayer known as Salah resonates across the Muslim communities five times daily, reminding the faithful of the Most Merciful Allah.
In the Islamic faith, the coming of the world’s Savior is a certainty and the end of the world as we know it, is inevitable. But with bountiful Mercy, Allah had revealed to the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, Peace be Upon Him, the important signs of the end times, known as the “Hour” in Islam. As warning messages, the signs are meant to wake the world up about the final Day of Judgment and to urge humankind to obey Allah’s commands, to do only righteous deeds, and to take the last chance to enter Heavenly Paradise.
These signs of the Hour were recorded many times by different witnesses in the Hadith, which are direct accounts of the words and actions of Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him.
For example, in the Hadith narrated by 'Abdullah ibn Masud and Abu Musa, the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said:
“Just before the Hour, there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will spread, and there will be Al-Harj in abundance, and Al-Harj means killing.” Here, it is revealed that in the end times, Al-Harj, or killing, would become commonplace. Also, there would be a lack of spiritual knowledge, including the knowledge of the consequences of killing.
The Beloved Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, was Himself a vegetarian, and taught His disciples and followers nonviolence towards all beings. As Supreme Master Ching Hai reminded us: “Actually, ‘Islam’ means peace. Means the religion of peace. But some people do not follow the example of the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, and do not follow His teaching. I remember some quote in the Quran. It says like, ‘Even if you extend your hands to kill me, I will never extend my hands to kill you.’ That’s in the Quran. And something, it said like, ‘You should forgive others.’ Like, ‘You should forgive so that Allah will forgive you.’ More or less like that.
But the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, never says, ‘Go and kill the non-believers, then you go to Heaven.’ So whoever does that is not a Muslim! You don’t recognize such people as Muslim. They are the harmer of the Muslims.
So please, protect the Muslims in your community, from harassment, from misunderstanding. Because they’re real believers of the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him. If they’re doing things good, they pray five times a day, they do good things. And tell them please be vegan. Because the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said that, too. He said to his cousin, ‘Oh, Ali, don’t eat that.’ He means don’t eat meat. ‘Because that quality will come within you.’ The bad quality.”
Today, we easily find such ignorance and violence throughout our world. Trillions of people from the animal kingdom are butchered every year, just for humans’ insatiable appetites.
“We have produced a lot, a lot, and a lot of negative energy by killing billions and billions of innocent sentient lives, and killing millions of our fellow humans even, over millennia, directly or indirectly. Directly is through war, indirectly is through diseases that we made ourselves, like with the bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, and now, swine flu, bird flu, etc. In the court, murderers cannot escape penalty, how could we escape our own conscience and the collective murderous energy that is emitted and hangs in the atmosphere until it is forced to manifest again – as wars, as disease, as the unstable climate and its disastrous consequence?”
“You see that we are really at the 11th hour. (Yes, Master.) Disasters everywhere. Pandemics one after another. (Yes, Master.) No matter how long they will chase after the cure, there’ll be other ones coming, other viruses. (Yes, Master.) Because the virus can even evade the vaccine nowadays already. And they develop another vaccine after another vaccine. Because in the beginning, God just warned us, you see?
So, God gave us an alarm, and saw if we would change. We should change. We should turn around, go to the other direction. (Yes.) Like, be vegan, go green. Be benevolent, be good. Be the good stewards of the Earth. Be the real children of God. But no, nobody turned around. You see that? (Yes, Master.) I kept warning at that time in several urgent talks. But they listen, they don’t listen.
So now, you see, so often we have so many pandemics and epidemics, or whatever diseases keep coming ever since. We can’t even remember anymore. Because we are killing too much, killing animal-people, killing humans, killing babies. How can all this bad karma be erased without payment? (Yes, Master.) (It’s true.)”
In addition to the brutal massacring of animal-people, humans are also exterminating their own kind, such as through the estimated 73 million induced abortions committed every year.
“Ibn Mas`ud added: I heard Allah’s Messenger saying; [they] will be from among the most wicked people who will be living at the time when the Hour will be established.”
“Imagine the baby is just ready to go say “hallo” to the world and they just snuff them dead inside. (Oh no. It’s terrible.) Make it stillborn, or born outside and then kill them. (Oh gosh.) Imagine that? Babies. (Terrible.) That is murder. (Yes, Master.) That is the greatest atrocity that you can commit. That’s very unconstitutional to kill your own citizens ‒ for no reason! (Yes.) For no reason.
And they even want to spend a lot, a lot, a lot of money to pay for that, tax people money to pay for the abortions and even to pay for that abroad as well. (Yes, Master.) Oh, this is terrible.
Morally speaking, constitutionally speaking, lawfully speaking, it’s all corrupt, it’s all bad, it’s all wrong. (Yes. Exactly.) It’s all against God as well, spiritually. (Yes, Master.)
This guy (Biden) is evil, and his administration, the closer ones, for example Harris and Pelosi, they are the same. All the same. And whoever supports the abortion law, they are all evil. They’re all devils inside. They’re all possessed by devils, (Wow.) if they are not devils themselves.”
“Allah’s Messenger, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘From among the portents of the Hour are: (Religious) ignorance will prevail. …’”
“(Media Report from Reuters - Oct. 29, 2021: Some of Biden’s critics in the American church say he should be banned from the act of Communion, an important ritual in the Catholic faith. Pope Francis has said the American clergy shouldn’t treat Communion as a political tool.)”
“(Media Report from Fox News - Nov. 22, 2016: Pope Francis grants from now on that priests can absolve any woman who confesses to having an abortion.)”
“(Media Report from EWTN News - Feb. 28, 2020: The poll found 72% of Catholics surveyed, believe certain acts are intrinsically evil, but less than half would say abortion, euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide would fit that definition.)”
“We can see that most of the so-called priests and high priests, and the top-most of the religious leaders, they’re all ignorant. (Yes.) They have nothing of the so-called religious knowledge at all. Zero, below zero, and even lowlife, leading life like devils on Earth. You see that? (Yes, Master.) Or supporting all that or condoning that or keeping silent regardless of the suffering of the followers.”
“(Interview by 60 Minutes Australia – 2015: These are people who should actually be facing criminal charges now. Not just sanctions at the hands of the pope or the church, or the attention of the media. These are people who have allegedly allowed the abuse of children to continue, sometimes for many years. And that is an unforgivable crime.)”
“So all these religious ignorant people should just disappear, go away hiding somewhere, and leave people alone. They know nothing. Not only know nothing, but do the opposite of what the religious top leaders should do. (Yes, Master.) (That’s right.) And therefore mislead people and make a bad, bad, evil example for their followers. (Yes, Master.)”
In the following Hadith, a Bedouin asked Allah’s Apostle, which is another title for the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, when would the Hour arrive. The following was His answer:
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour.’ It was asked, ‘How will honesty be lost, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He said, ‘When authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the Hour.’”
“So now you can see, truly, honesty is lost. Like fraud in elections. (Yes.) It’s already the big dishonesty. The Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour.’ Just even one quality lost, only honesty lost, then wait for the Hour. Meaning it’s coming. (Yes.) Doomsday is coming. (Yes, Master.) So, the follower asked Him again, ‘How will that be lost?’ The Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour.’ Because that’s how honesty will be lost. It’s true, isn’t it? (Yes, Master.)
Being a pope, being a priest and they do exactly against common moral standard, not to talk about being a priest, a holy person. (Yes, Master.) Ordinary people don’t go and rape children. No? (No, Master.) No! I mean, some here and there, but not like that. (Yes.) And they’re ordinary people only. They work hard, they earn their labor’s payment. They don’t cheat.
These big shots sitting in the church, they’re all cheaters. All robbers, because they’re not worthy of their upkeep. They’re not worthy of their food. They just cheat, and they do all the bad things and still get paid. And get paid very lavishly. Living in the luxury anywhere they go. And being pampered and protected from their crimes even. My God. If this is not hell, then what? (Yes.) If they are not devils, then what? Tell me. (Yes. Obvious.) Yeah, it’s obvious. Obvious that these are devils. (Yes, Master.)”
“I asked Heavens how much percentage of humans is worthy of Heaven places after they die. They told me only 10%. (Oh! Wow.) (That’s so low.) Imagine. And so, the rest, whom are we living with now? (Yes, Master.) That’s why everywhere is killing, cheating, molesting, all on the top. (Oh, yes.) Starting all from the top. You see? (Yes, Master.) From the pope down to the other priests and even cardinals and all that. (Yes.) And then from the top government, from the president downward, all cheating, just to sit there. All cheating just to get power, in different ways. Cheating this way or that way. (Yes.) Or cheating in the election and all that. (Yes, Master.) So, it is not really a good world at all. (No, Master.) It’s truly terrifying when you know all about it. (Yes, Master.)”
