"They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? Say,
"Its knowledge is only with my Lord. Nonewill reveal its time except
Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come
upon you except unexpectedly." They ask you as if you are familiar with
it. Say, "Its knowledge is only with Allah , but most of the people do
not know." (Surat Al-'A`rāf [7:187] )
As Muslims , we don't believe in such myths saying that the end of the world will be in 21 / 12 / 2012
This is really funny , it hurts me to find many Muslims believing in such things !
I want to ask them : don't you read the Quran ? don't you read the sayings of the prophet Muhammad pbuh ? As it is mentioned in the verse above , no one can know when is the end of the world except Allah (God) the almighty !
Secondly , Our beloved prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam spoke
about minor and major signs of judgement day ! many signs did not happen
yet like the appearance of al-mahdi , the coming back of Khilafa, the
conquest of Al-Quds , the appearance of Dajjal , appearance of dabba ,
the coming back of Issa (Jesus)pbuh , The prophet also told us that
Allah the Merciful will take the souls of all the believers before the
day of resurrection so only disbelievers will stay alive to see the
terrible events that happen to earth before the judgement day .......etc By the way , as Muslims we don't believe in such funny myths and we feel pity for those who believe in it.
