    End of World?

    As Christians we are taught that one day the world will come to an end. Does Islam have a similiar believe, and if so, do people think it is headed that way now? I have had several people show up at my front door, trying to convience me the end is at hand.

    yes....
    infact Islam and Christianity share too much in common....

    as Muslims we believe that when the end of the world is near, Dajjal (Anti-Christ) will appear....
    and then Jesus (as) will come back to earth....
    and he will spend 40 years on earth....
    these 40 years, according to a saying of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) will be the happiest times on earth....
    after that Jesus(as) will die a natural death and the end of the world will soon follow as people once again deviate form Islam....

    "Our Lord! forgive us our sins and anything we may have done that transgressed our duty; establish our feet firmly and help us against those that resist faith." Quran(3:147)
    Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

      well of course We believe in the termination of World...and as the God of Christians and Muslims is the same (except for Jesus and the holy spirit) they r bound to share these beliefs.

      I found this link quite comprehensive on the view of Islam abt the end of World

        Qiyamah will come when...

        Hadhrat Abu Musa Ash'ari (R.A.) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhii Wassallam) said, "Qiyamah will come...

        * When it will be regarded as a shame to act on Quranic injunctions.
        * When untrustworthy people will be regarded as trustworthy and the trustworthy will be regarded as untrustworthy.
        * When it will be hot in winter (and vice versa).
        * When the length of days is stretched, i.e. a journey of a few days is covered in a matter of hours.
        * When orators and lecturers lie openly.
        * When people dispute over petty issues.
        * When women with children come displeased on account of them bearing offspring, and barren women remain happy on account of having no responsibility of offspring.
        * When oppression, jealousy, and greed become the order of the day.
        * When people blatantly follow their passions and whims.
        * When lies prevail over the truth.
        * When violence, bloodshed and anarchy become common.
        * When immorality overtakes shamelessness and is perpetrated publicly.
        * When legislation matters pertaining to Deen is handed over to the worst elements of the Ummat, and if people accept them and are satisfied with their findings, then such persons will not smell the fragrance of Jannat.
        * When the offspring become a cause of grief and anger (for their parents).

        The following is part of a lengthy Hadith narrated by Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood (R.A.) when he inquired from Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) about the Signs of Qiyamah.

        * Music and musical instruments will be found in every home.
        * People will indulge in homosexuality.
        * There will be an abundance of illegitimate children.
        * There will be an abundance of critics, tale-carriers, back- biters and taunters in society.
        * People will establish ties with strangers and sever relations with their near and dear ones.
        * Hypocrites will be in control of the affairs of the community and evil, immoral people will be at the helm of business establishments.
        * The Masjid will be decorated, but the hearts of the people will be devoid of guidance.
        * The courtyards of Masjids will be built beautifully and high mimbars (pulpits) will be erected.
        * Gangsters and evil people will prevail.
        * Various wines will be consumed excessively.

        Auf bin Malik (R.A.) says: I came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) while he was in his skin tent during the Tabuk expedition. He said to me, "Count six things before the advent of Qiyamah:

        1 My death
        2 The conquest of Jerusalem
        3 Mass deaths amongst you people, just as when sheep die in large numbers during an epidemic
        4 Abundance of wealth to such an extent that if a person were to be given a hundred Dinars he will still not be satisfied
        5 General anarchy and bloodshed, that no Arab household will be spared from it
        6 Then a life of peace as a result of a peace agreement between you and the Banil Asfaar
        (Romans) which they will break and attack you with a force consisting of eighty flags and under each flag will be an army of twelve thousand men." (Hadith: Sahih Bukhari).

        IRAQ and SYRIA

        Abu Nadhrah says: "We were sitting in the company of Jabir bin Abdullah (R.A.) when he said: 'Soon the people of IRAQ will neither receive any food (grain) nor any money.'" We asked, "Why would such a thing happen?" He replied, "Because of the non-Arabs." (i.e they will prevent food from going into Iraq, in the form of "sanctions" to this day.) He then said: "Soon the people of Shaam (SYRIA) will neither receive any money nor grain." We asked as to why this would happen. He replied: "Because of the Romans (christians)."

        CONCEITED PEOPLE:

        Hadhrat Abbas (R.A) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) has said, "Islam will spread far and wide, across the seas. Horses will cross the land and seas in the cause of Jihaad. Then a time will come wherein a group of people will emerge which recites the Quraan. They will claim,

        'We have recited the Quraan and is there anyone who understands the Quraan better than us? There is NO ONE more proficient than us in the study of the Quraan.'

        Then Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) asked the Sahaba, "Do you see any good in their claims?" The Sahaba replied, "No". Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) said, "But these conceited claimants will be from my Ummah and will be the fuel of the Fire."

          Thank you so much for your response, and for the very interesting link. I have saved it, and will read more from the site.

          Yes, it sounds like the two religions have a lot in common.
