Obama, Ahmadinejab, and a Shia Apocalyptic Scenario?

by Dr. D ~ November 18th, 2008

TEHRAN, IRAN - APRIL 04: President Mahmoud Ahm...

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejab has been talking about an apocalyptic Shia/Islamic scenario for several years now–predicting that ‘the Hidden Imam‘ would soon return as the end-time Mahdi that establishes Islamic rule over the entire world.

Following the election of Barack Obama, some Shities actually believe that Obama could be a possible fulfillment of an end-time Islamic prophecy.

I found the link to this at SmartChristian.com and in an article by Daniel Pipes. Here is a quote from the original article

by Amir Taheri:

According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.” Commanding “the strongest army on earth,” the new ruler in the West will carry “a clear sign” from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: “Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.”

In a curious coincidence Obama’s first and second names–Barack Hussein–mean “the blessing of Hussein” in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means “he is with us,” the magic formula in Majlisi’s tradition.

Mystical reasons aside, the Khomeinist establishment sees Obama’s rise as another sign of the West’s decline and the triumph of Islam. Obama’s promise to seek unconditional talks with the Islamic Republic is cited as a sign that the U.S. is ready to admit defeat.

Response: This is not good at all. It is the type of scenario that Ahmadinejab might take serious and plan accordingly. If there is a perception that the USA is in decline under Obama’s administration and that he is an actual sign that Islam is about to rise up and dominate, the Iranian leaders might miscalculate and bring about an actual confrontation with Israel, the United States, and the West.

Pres. Ahmadinejab has already threatened Israel’s existence on a number of occasions. The Iranians last week tested some new missiles that could reach Israel and parts of Europe. If and when they actually go nuclear–then this scenario could end up having some serious consequences indeed.

It is doubtful that the Israelis would wait to act until a nuclear missile was actually in the air headed their way. Look for a strike way before the Iranians have that capability. One can only guess what the aftermath would bring–it would not be pretty and it could be apocalyptic!           *Top

    Christians, rather than continue the Satanic implemented “Crusade” religious war with Islam, try what God tells of in the Bible, build an altar, SEE whose sacrifice is accepted.
    To the false teachers and prophets now abounding in Christianity, wear fire proof clothing just in case.

    I believe that your Mahdi could well be the ‘Anti-Christ’ of the Book of Revelation and the One who you say will be called Jesus who supports the Mahdi is probably the ‘False Prophet’ of the same book.

    The real historical Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will be coming back in the clouds to conquer both of them and save the Christians and the Jews. As it is written let it be so–Praise the Holy One of Israel.

    Like most people here, I have been trying to make sense of the recent world events. I have accidentally came across an article today that partly explains some of the beliefs and differences. I don’t know how authentic the sources are.

    A- Shiah :

    1-Shia’s Mahdi will destroy the Ka’bah and the two Holy Mosques of Mecca and Medina:
    “When Imam Mahdi rises up, he will demolish Al-Haram Mosque ( in Mecca) …’” (Al-Mufid, Al-Irshad. p. 411 and At-Tusi, Kitab al Ghaibah, p. 282)…
    … ??? ??? ?????? ??? ?????? ??????

    ?????? ?????? ?282 , ??????? ?????? ?411

    “Do you know what the Qa’im (Shia’s Mahdi) will start with? What he will start with is that he will dig up/out the graves of these two (Abu Bakr al-Siddiq r.a. and Umar bin al-Khattab r.a., Prophet Mohammad’s companions and successors as Caliphs) while they are still wet and fresh and burn/cremate them and throw them (their ashes) into the wind. And he will break/destroy the Mosque (meaning the holy Al-Haram Mosque of Mecca).” (Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 386)

    2- Shia’s Imam Mahdi – Dajjal- anti Christ-:
    Shia’s Imam Mahdi will be an Anti-Arab bigot who will massacre the Arabs
    The following is some of what Shia books say their Mahdi’s massacres of the Arabs: ?? ??? ????? ???? ????? ??? ?????
    ?????? ???????? ?155, ???? ??????? 52/349
    “There will be nothing left between us and the Arabs, except slaughter.” (Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 349 and Al-Numani, Al-Ghaiba, p. 155)

    3- Jews & prominent Prophets will be among the followers of Shia’s Mahdi
    Sheikh al-Mufeed has reported in his Al-Irshaad based on al-Mufadhaal ibnu Umar that Imam Abu Abdullah [as] said: “With the Qa’im twenty seven men from the people of Moses (meaning Jews or Israelites), seven from Ahl Al-Kahf (People of the Cave), (prophet) Joshua bin Nun, (prophet) Solomon, Abu Dajana Al-Ansari, Al-Miqdad, Malik Al-Ahtar will come out and they will be his supporters.” (Al-Mufeed Al-Tusi, Al-Irshaad p.402)

    4-Shia’s Mahdi will Rule according to the Law of David
    ???? ?? ???? ?? ???? ?? ????? ?? ?????? ?? ???? ?? ??? ?????? ?? ????? ?? ???? ?? ???? ???????? ?? ???? ?? ??????? ???? ??????? ???:
    ??? ??????? ?? ??????? ??? ??? ?????? ???? ?? ????? ??? ????? ??? ??? ?????? ?
    Muhammad ibn Ahmad attributes to Jaeed al Hamdani asking Ali ibn Al-Hussein [a.s.] (Shia’s 4th Imams): “I asked him by which law will you (the 12 Imams) rule?” Ali ibn Al-Hussein [as]: said: “By the ruling (law) of the family of David, and if we encounter something perplexing, Ruh Al- Quds ( Holy Spirit, meaning Angel Gabriel ) will solve it for us.” ( Al-Kulayni , Al-Kafi, Vol. 1, p. 397)

    5- Shia’s Mahdi will call God by God’s Hebrew name
    ???????? ??? ???? ????? ??? ???? ?????? : ???????? ?????? ?? ????
    Al-Mufadhal ibn Umar is reported to have said that Abu Abdullah [a.s.] (Shia’s 6th Imams) said: “When the Imam (Mahdi) makes a call (for prayer), he will supplicate to God using God’s Hebrew name…” (Al-Numani, Al-Ghayba , p.326)

    6-Mentioning the name of the Shia’s Mahdi is not permissible
    51/33)
    According to Al-Majlisi’s Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 51, page 33, it is not permissible to mention the name of the Shia’s Mahdi and whoever refers to him by his name shall be cursed.

    Shia’s Imam Mahdi could be the Dajjal (Anti-Christ)
    The “Qaem” (Imam Mahdi) of the Shia will rule according to the Laws of David and the family of David, according to the Shia narrations they attribute to their Imams in Al-Kafi, the book most relied upon by Shia scholars out of the four Shia Hadith books.
    All of the following Shia narrations come from the same section in Al-Kafi reported by Al-Kulyani, located in Al-Kafi (Volume 1, p. 387-398):
    Ali ibn Ibrahim attributes to Abi Ubaidah saying: “When the Qaem (Imam Mahdi) of the household of the Prophet appears, he will rule according to the ruling (law) of
    Muhammad ibn Yahya attributes to Muhammad ibn Sinan- Abaan saying: “I heard Abu Abdullah [as] (one of Shia’s 12 Imams) saying: “The World will not fade away unless a person from us appears who will rule according to the ruling (law) of the family of David.”

    Ahmad ibn Muhammad attributes to Ammar AsSaabati saying: “I asked Abu Abdullah [as] (one of Shia’s 12 Imams): “On what will you (the 12 Imams) rule if you are made the rulers.” He replied: “By the ruling of God and the ruling (law) of David. And if we are confronted by a situation which we cannot solve, Gabriel (Ruh al Quds – Holy Spirit) will reveal it to us.”

    Muhammad ibn Ahmad attributes to Jaeed al Hamdani asking Ali ibn Al-Hussein [as] (one of Shia’s 12 Imams): “I asked him by which law will you rule?” Ali ibn al-Hussein [as]: said: “By the ruling (law) of David, and if there is something which we are unaware of, Gabriel (Ruh al Quds- Holy Spirit) will reveal it to us.”

    Ahmad ibn Mahran attributes to Ammar AsSaabati saying: “I asked Abu Abdullah [as] (one of Shia’s 12 Imams): …‘By how will you rule?’ Abu Abdullah [as] replied: ‘By the rule of God, and by the ruling (law) of David.”

    B: the Bible :
    firstly they claim that Jesus said: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (the Old Testament) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law (the Old Testament) until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:17-18)”John 8 : 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.)
    so the God of old testament is the god of new testament :and Jesus – god of Gold testament is he the same God of new

    [4] And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
    [5] And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
    [6] Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
    [7] And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

    ” And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ***, with the edge of the sword ” – Jos:6:21 , the only book that allows killing women , children , old people and animals , even the worshpers of stones and the sun .. etc , didn’t do this .

    Do not spare them, put to death men, women and children and infants, cattle and sheep, camles and donkeys ( Bible 1 samuel 15:3)
    Think not that i cam to send peace on earth, i came not to send peace, but a swords (Bible , Matthew 10:34)
    I have come to set the world on fire, and i wish it were already burning (Bible, luke 12:49)——-

    Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I
    just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your posts.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the
    same subjects? Thanks!

    The “translation” based on transliterating President Obama’s name is not quite accurate. There is no verb in the phrase “o (u) ba ma,” so it would read “he with us,” not “he IS with us.” As far as Daniel Pipes, I don’t trust the man as far as I could throw him.
