My Twilight Zone.

By: Maged Taman

A lot of people think we are at the end of times. I personally do not know for sure but there are a lot of signs everywhere. I feel like I am four persons together living in the same house.
Person one is a religious one gets his information about the end of times from prophecies in the three major religions and related web sites like imam AL Mahdi or Christians web sites as those who are predicting the rupture.

Person two is a very serious one that follow the geopolitics in media avenues and see if any thing sound like the end of time.

Person three is the funniest one he gets information about end of times from the Hollywood movies like 40 years old virgin, chicken little, ice age 2 and bench-warmers. Those people in Hollywood look like they know things that we do not know.

Person four is the real me a boring physician who goes to work almost every day.
When I look at the mirror I startle myself I find four of me in the mirror looking in different directions.

I look like this gentleman in the T.V who always loose a loan to ditech. In one of the ads there were four of him knocking the same door and they all were turned down for a laon from ditech.

The Quran: Inspired By God Or Satan Or Made Up By Muhammad (PBUH)? Part1.

Read these verses over and over and decide to yourself, Is these verses:a- Inspired by Godb- Inspired by Satan.c- Made up by Muhammad.68:34 Verily, for the Righteous, are Gardens of Delight, in the Presence of their Lord. إِنَّ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ68:35 Shall We then treat the People of Faith like the People of Sin? أَفَنَجْعَلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَالْمُجْرِمِينَ68:36 What is the matter with you? How judge ye? مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ68:37 Or have ye a book through which ye learn- أَمْ لَكُمْ كِتَابٌ فِيهِ تَدْرُسُونَ68:38 That ye shall have, through it whatever ye choose? إِنَّ لَكُمْ فِيهِ لَمَا يَتَخَيَّرُونَ68:39 Or have ye Covenants with Us to oath, reaching to the Day of Judgment, (providing) that ye shall have whatever ye shall demand? أَمْ لَكُمْ أَيْمَانٌ عَلَيْنَا بَالِغَةٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّ لَكُمْ لَمَا تَحْكُمُونَ68:40 Ask thou of them, which of them will stand surety for that! سَلْهُم أَيُّهُم بِذَلِكَ زَعِيمٌ68:41 Or have they some "Partners" (in Allah.ead)? Then let them produce their "partners", if they are truthful!أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاء فَلْيَأْتُوا بِشُرَكَائِهِمْ إِن كَانُوا صَادِقِينَ68:42 The Day that the shin shall be laid bare, and they shall be summoned to bow in adoration, but they shall not be able,- يَوْمَ يُكْشَفُ عَن سَاقٍ وَيُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ68:43 Their eyes will be cast down,- ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration, while they were whole, (and had refused).خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ وَقَدْ كَانُوا يُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ وَهُمْ سَالِمُونَ68:44 Then leave Me alone with such as reject this Message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not. فَذَرْنِي وَمَن يُكَذِّبُ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ68:45 A (long) respite will I grant them: truly powerful is My Plan. وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ68:46 Or is it that thou dost ask them for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ أَجْرًا فَهُم مِّن مَّغْرَمٍ مُّثْقَلُونَ68:47 Or that the Unseen is in their hands, so that they can write it down? أَمْ عِندَهُمُ الْغَيْبُ فَهُمْ يَكْتُبُونَ68:48 So wait with patience for the Command of thy Lord, and be not like the Companion of the Fish,- when he cried out in agony. فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تَكُن كَصَاحِبِ الْحُوتِ إِذْ نَادَى وَهُوَ مَكْظُومٌ68:49 Had not Grace from his Lord reached him, he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore, in disgrace. لَوْلَا أَن تَدَارَكَهُ نِعْمَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ لَنُبِذَ بِالْعَرَاء وَهُوَ مَذْمُومٌ68:50 Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the Company of the Righteous. فَاجْتَبَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَجَعَلَهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ68:51 And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!" وَإِن يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ68:52 But it is nothing less than a Message to all the worlds. وَمَا هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِّلْعَالَمِينَ

A Program For The Messiah.

By: Maged Taman

If you would read the literature about messiah particularly from Jewish literature you will get frustrated. How, why and by what all means all or most people will allow someone to be a messiah. The only acceptance people knew over the years is that silent acceptance in tyrannical countries of a certain leader or a dynasty or the localized acceptance of a democratically elected leader. How and why all people would universally accept a single person to be that leader. Where the human cynic, jealous, corruption, selfishness ....Will go. For one person to be that one it became clear to people over thousands of years he is needed to be selected and guided by God. For a program of that messiah to succeed he would need:
1- People to believe that he is really guided by God.
2- He has the signs that described to them in the holly books of that person.
3- He has the power of prophecy: that it is a done deal. God fulfills his will.
4- People believe that he is a genuine person.
5- They believe he suffered enough that they are willing to help him.
6- His sufferings are the injustices in the world that he will plan to solve.
7- A universal peace needs A universal justice that he would have to achieve.
8- Their wellbeing in life and after-life would be his aim.
9- You will feel at the end of the day when you look at your family that he is beside you and thinks like you what the best we can do for them?.
10- You will feel that he is not a superhuman and not dictating to others what they do but to reflect their most moral consensus.
11- He will live by example and his life would be his message.
12- He will have people just love to participate in his big plan.
13- He will give them the hope that it is not only achievable and sustainable but also it is their destiny.
14- He will have God as his guide and the people as his consultants.
15- His plan will need all of us to unite through: God, humanity and our interests.
16- He will convince them that Utopia is not a boring existence but it provides peace, stability and justice that allow all of us to get the best of our minds and hearts. It does not kill human ego but directs it to the best of the individual and humanity. Nothing boring in this utopia you have more peace to stop to worry and pray to God and enjoy your family.
17- He will stimulate their intellect and get the best of their heart and mind. They will enjoy his program both by their hearts and minds.
18- He will be ultimately the reflection of all what is good in their hearts in a single person. He will be every one's messiah.
As you see it is a very nice dream and it will continue to be unless God would send such person.

Who is Imam Al Mahdi?

"In summary, we can say that there are a lot of hadith about the Mahdi to be found in the Sunnah of varying quality, running the gamut between fabricated, weak, and good. Hadith graded as authentic are few. However, belief in the appearance of the Mahdi is an established matter, taking all of the evidence together. The Mahdi in Sunni and Shi`ah traditions: Ahl al-Sunnah believe that a man from the household of the Prophet (peace be upon him) will appear at the end of time in a very natural manner, born like any other person is born. He will live just as others live. He may even fall into error and need people to correct him just like anybody else. Then Allah will decree a lot of good for the Muslims to come at his hands, as well as piety, justice, and virtue. Allah will unite the Muslims around him. There is nothing more to it than this. This is what is found in the hadith.
There is no textual evidence telling us that it is an act of piety to wait for him or to anticipate his coming. It is not appropriate for any Muslim to accept such a claim on the basis of mere supposition. A claim must be backed up by sufficient evidence. Those making claims are many. This has been the case since the dawn of history, as I will soon make clear. A Muslim is expected to examine matters, verify them, and approach them with caution. A Muslim must never be hasty and accept matters on the basis of personal desires or wishful thinking.
Likewise, no aspect of Islamic Law is dependent on the appearance of the Mahdi. Claims that such Islamic institutions as the Friday prayer, congregational prayers, jihad, carrying out the prescribed punishments, or applying the laws of Islam are contingent on his appearance are baseless. Muslims must conduct their lives as normal. They must perform their acts of worship, fulfill their duties, engage in jihad, reform their societies, learn their religion, and teach each other. When this pious man does appear and his identity is established with unambiguous, indisputable proofs, then we should follow him. This was the attitude of the Companions and those that followed them. The scholars throughout the ages have adhered to this view. The idea that the Mahdi should be awaited and anticipated and the excessive emphasis placed on him was a much later development. "
