EVIDENCE FROM THE HADITH
The Prophet Mohammed (may God bless him and grant him peace) has revealed many important matters about Jesus'' return, as well as some of the things that will happen before and after this event, in his hadiths. All of this information is from the "Unseen," and was given to him by God, as related in the following verse:
He [God] is the Knower of the Unseen, and does not divulge His Unseen to anyone - except a Messenger with whom He is well pleased, and then He posts sentinels before him and behind him. (Surat al-Jinn , 72:26-27)
Our Lord also reveals that He sent knowledge to Prophet Mohammed (may God bless him and grant him peace) in his dreams:
God has confirmed His Messenger''s vision with truth: "You will enter the Sacred Mosque [Masjid al-Haram] in safety, God willing, shaving your heads and cutting your hair without any fear." He knew what you did not know and ordained, in place of this, an imminent victory. (Surat al-Fath , 48:27)
God gives such knowledge to our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) in order to help and support both him as well as all of the faithful believers who were with him.
Some of this revealed information deals with the signs of the End Times. The most significant of these revelations concerns Jesus'' second coming. The hadiths about the End Times can be found in sahih (accredited) hadith collections such as Imam Nawawi''s Riyadh as-Salihin , Imam Malik''s Al-Muwatta'' , Ibn Khuzayma''s Sahih , Ibn Hibban''s Sahih , Ibn Ahmad Hanbal''s Musnad , and Abu Dawud al-Tayalisi''s Musnad. From these sources, we learn that the Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) made many important revelations about Jesus, all of which are considered tawatur (reliable).
The Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) reveals in his hadiths that religious morality will dominate the world; that peace, justice, and prosperity will prevail; and that this will be achieved by Jesus, who will unite the Christian and Islamic worlds. At present, many societies are under the influence of anti-religious philosophies, and the resulting models are obvious. Such problems as immorality, drugs, terrorism, and famine demand that Christians and Muslims join together to fight these problems on an intellectual level. The world''s current social structure makes an alliance between Islam and Christianity inevitable. Considering Christianity''s influence over the West and its leaders, the influence that an alliance between Islam and Christianity would have is clear enough for all to see.
