Question

Some people believe that the Antichrist will be the savior of the Christians. As a result, they will view 'Eesaa (Jesus), may Allaah exalt his mention, as an enemy of the Antichrist when he comes again. What is your point of view on this issue?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

Ibn Al-Qayyim may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him mentions that the three nations; Muslims, Christians and Jews, are all expecting a person who will come at the end of time. The followers of each of the three religions have been promised that he will come. Thus, the Jews have been waiting for the Antichrist and call him the King of Peace. The Christians have been waiting for 'Eesa (the Messiah), the son of Maryam (Mary) whom they believe is God and the son of Allaah. Muslims, however, wait for 'Eesa the son of Maryam, the Slave and Messenger of Allaah The Almighty who will descend as a follower of the Sharee‘ah of Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) , will break the cross, kill the pigs and approve of no religion other than Islam.

In fact, Jews and Christians agree that the awaited Messiah will be from the offspring of Israel and that his headquarters will be in Jerusalem. Whereas, the Christians believe that the Messiah will kill both the Jews and the Muslims, and the Jews believe that he will kill the Christians and Muslims altogether. The Jews succeeded in deceiving some Christian sects, particularly those who believe in the literalism of the Torah, in order to unite immediately and prepare for his advent through supporting the Jews to dominate Jerusalem.

This was why the Christians gave Jerusalem to the Jews and both deferred discussing the details of the end of life and specifying the identity of the awaited Messiah.

The truth is that 'Eesaa, the son of Maryam  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention will kill the Antichrist and his companions from the Jews, and he will be an enemy to the Christians who still adhere to their false religion and refuse to embrace Islam.

Allaah Knows best.
