The Prophet (Peace be upon him) Said That The Muslims Would Fight The Turks
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "The Hour will not arrive until you will fight a people whose shoes are made of (braided) hair and until you fight the Turks, who have small eyes, red faces, small and turned up noses, and who have faces that are like the shield (of a combatant)... People are minerals (this means that their roots, backgrounds, and lineages differ). The best of them in (the days of) ignorance is the best of them in Islam. And there will come upon you a time wherein for one of you to see me is more beloved to him than to be given more family and wealth - (than to be given) double what he already has." [Reported by Bukhari]
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) also related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "The Hour will not arrive until you fight Khoor and Kirmaan, (two) foreign peoples, whose faces are red, whose noses are wide and flat, whose faces are like shields, and whose shoes are (braided) hair." [Reported by Bukhari]
'Amr ibn Tha’lab (may Allah be pleased with him) related that he heard the Messenger of Allah say, "From the signs of the Hour is for you to fight a people whose faces are wide, as if their faces are shields (of combatants)." (Reported by Ahmad) Bukhari related it as well from Jareer Ibn Haazim. The Companions fought and defeated the Turks; they gained spoils of war and they took women and children as captives.
Here, it is literally indicated that this Hadeeth is a sign of the coming of the Hour (i.e. The Day of Judgment). If the "Signs of the Hour" refers to events that take place shortly before the Hour, then the event referred to in the Hadeeth - i.e. a major battle between the Muslims and the Turks - can take place again. But if "Signs of the Hour" refers to a more general meaning, then an event at any time, and not just events that take place shortly before the Hour, can be from the Signs of the Hour, even if a given event occurs much before the Hour. But still, the event must take place after the time of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) for it to be considered one of the Signs of the Hour. After having reflected on all of the Ahaadeeth that are related about this topic, we feel that the latter of the two possibilities appears to be correct - and you will see this presently In-sha-Allah.
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) Intimated That Some Children Would Take Positions Of Authority Over The Muslims, And He Pointed Out That That will Lead To Evil And Corruption
Abu Hurairah related that he heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) say, "The ruin of my nation will be at the hands of children (or young men)." (Reported by Ahmad) Marwaan (may Allah be pleased with him) said, "I used to go with my father to Banee Marwaan after they were made to rule; they would pledge allegiance to young boys and some who were pledged allegiance to were still in their safety rope (something specific to children to keep them from straying). I said, 'Perhaps these companions of yours are those about whom Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: Indeed, these kings resemble one another.'"
Other prophesies are in the Hadeeth we mentioned about the "Liar" and the "Destroyer" from Thaqeef; the "Liar" was Mukhtaar ibn Abee 'Ubaid, who appeared in Koofah during the days of 'Abdullah ibn Az-Zubair (may Allah be pleased with him). And the "Destroyer" was Al-Hajjaaj ibn Yousuf Ath-Thaqafee, the one who killed 'Abdullah ibn Az-Zubair (may Allah be pleased with him). In another Hadeeth the Prophet (Peace be upon him) prophesized the black flags, which Banu Al-'Abbaas came with when they wrenched control of the Muslim Nation from the hands of Banu Umayyah. This occurred in the year 302 H. The last ruler of Banu Umayyah was Mirwaan ibn Muhammad ibn Mirwaan ibn Al-Hakam ibn Abul-'Aas, known as Mirwaan AI-Himaar (literally, meaning donkey; he was called this because he would sweat profusely as he tirelessly fought those who opposed his rule) and Mirwaan Al-Ja'dee (his teacher was Ja'ad ibn Dirham Al-Mo'tazilee). Abu Al-'Abbaas 'Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn 'Abdullah ibn Al-'Abbaas ibn 'Abdul-Muttallib was the first ruler of Banu Al-'Abbaas.
Abu 'Ubaidah ibn Al-Jarraah and Mu'aadh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "Indeed Allah M has commenced this matter upon Prophethood and mercy; it will become Khilaafah and mercy; it will become honor and sanctity; it will become kingdoms, great oppression, and corruption in the nation - people will deem (unlawful) private parts, alcohol, and silk to be lawful. They will be supported upon that and they will be given provision continuously until they meet Allah 'Azza Wa Jall (to Him belongs Might and Majesty)." [Reported by Abu Daawood]
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said, "The Prophets will be followed by the Khaleefahs, who will apply Allah's Book and who will be just with Allah's slaves. The Khaleefahs will be followed by kings, who will take their revenge, kill men, and choose wealth (for themselves). (At that time) one can change (evil) with his hand, with his tongue, and with his heart; and there is no Iman beyond that." [Reported by Al-Baihaqee]
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) also reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "The Children of Israel were led by Prophets; each time a Prophet died, he was replaced by a Prophet. And there is no Prophet after me, though there will be many Khaleefahs." The Companions asked, "And what do you command us to do, O Messenger of Allah?" He (Peace be upon him) said, "Honor the earliest pledges of allegiance and give them (i.e. the rulers) their rights. For indeed, Allah will ask them about what He made them rule over." [Reported by Bukhari]
'Abdullah ibn Mas'ood (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said, "There was no Prophet who did not have companions who were his supporters - who were guided by his guidance and who followed his way (Sunnah). After them come ensuing generations, who say that which they do not do and who do that which they forbid." [Reported by Muslim]
The Prophet m Informed Us Of Twelve Khaleefahs From The Quraish Who Rule Over The Muslim Nation
Jaabir ibn Samarah (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "There will be twelve Khaleefahs who will all be from the Quraish." (Reported by Bukhari and Muslim) In another narration, Jaabir ibn Samarah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) say, "The affair of this nation will continue to remain upright and it will continue to be victorious over its enemy until it goes through twelve Khaleefahs, all of whom are from the Quraish." The Companions asked, "Then what will happen?" He (Peace be upon him) said, "Then there will be Faraj (holes and gaps through which seep factors that lead to division and weakness in the ranks and in souls)." [Reported by Abu Daawood]
The twelve referred to in the Hadeeth are not the same twelve that the Raafidah falsely consider to be infallible Imams. Most of the twelve they mention never even had any position of authority over the Muslims, not even over a region or territory of Muslim land.
Among the twelve Imams that the Raafidhah mention, only ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) and his son Al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) ruled over the Muslims.
The Khaleefahs Of The Quraish Referred To In The Hadeeth Are Not The Twelve Leaders Who Followed In Sequence After The Prophet's Death
The twelve leaders of the Muslims who followed one another after the death of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) - among whom were the leaders of Banu Umayyah - are not the twelve Khaleefahs that are referred to in the above-mentioned Hadeeth. In the Hadeeth of Safeenah, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "The caliphate after me will be for thirty years." He (Peace be upon him) also said that kingdoms would follow that period, which means that the rulers of Banu Umayyah cannot be considered to be from the twelve Khaleefahs of the Quraish. Nonetheless, among those twelve Imams are Abu Bakr 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), 'Uthmaan ‘Ali and his son, Al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him). The majority of scholars maintain that 'Umar Ibn 'Abdul-' Azeez is also one of the aforesaid twelve Khaleefahs - and all praise is for Allah. Among them were also some from Banu Al-'Abbaas. The rest of them will come in the future, one of them being the Mahdee that is spoken of in some Ahaadeeth. We seek help from Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) and we wholly depend upon Him.
