The minor pilgrimage to Mecca, the Umrah, has already been cancelled. The Great Pilgrimage, the Hajj, scheduled for July, will likely also be shut down.
In the above video recorded years ago, the world’s leading Islamic eschatologist, Sheikh Imran Hosein, cites a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) that the Hajj would be abandoned during the End Times (akhir uz-zamaan). Sheikh Imran suggested that it would be canceled during a period of extreme geopolitical tension between Zionists and their enemies (Iran and its friends?) due to manufactured hysteria over a pandemic.
Sheikh Imran has been issuing disturbing warnings of the imminent approach of the Malhamma (nuclear World War III) for around seven years. The likely shutdown of the Hajj this year, under conditions very similar to those Sheikh Imran has been predicting for years, is another unsettling portent lending credibility to his interpretations.
For those interested in end times prophecies, I cannot recommend Sheikh Imran’s work too highly. His seminal work Jerusalem in the Qur’an lays out the basis for understanding Zionism as a manifestation of the Antichrist (Dajjal).
He has also written extensively on Gog and Magog (Yajuj and Majuj), two extremely barbaric and destructive nations or tribes who break through the barrier built against them and lay waste to humanity, paving the way for the events of the End Times. Many scholars have speculated on the identity of Gog and Magag. Was it the US and USSR? Zionism and Western imperialism? Christian Zionism and Jewish Zionism?
It occurs to me that rather than being literal nations or tribes, Gog and Magog could represent the two great spiritual deviations of our time: Those who abandon religion (the atheists) and those who invert it (the satanists). Those two false religions are the basis of the two great heretical-Jewish messianic millenarian movements: (atheistic) communism and (satanic) Zionism.
By erasing true religion (worship of and submission to God) atheism/communism paved the way for the triumph of Satanism, represented by the forces of Antichrist/Dajjal. The Zionist Antichrist will attempt to “rebuild” a blood sacrifice temple in Occupied Jerusalem. From that spot he intends to rule the world and enslave the goyim.
Is Bibi Netanyahu the Antichrist? His father, Benzion Netanyahu, was a leading scholar of satanic proto-Zionism in general, and the world’s first real Zionist, Abarbanel, in particular.
Historian Christopher Bjerknes appeared on my radio Friday night and stated that Netanyahu is a leading candidate for Antichrist. Is he right? Listen, watch events unfold, and decide for yourself.
