World to End 2012?

Is there anything in the Qur’an that agrees with this matter?

The Answer

In the name of Allah, The Compassionate, The Merciful

You have made a very wise decision in asking this question on two counts. First, because many young people nowadays have several questions and/or misgivings about their religion but keep them inside. As time goes by, these ideas pile up and then might trigger some day and lead to numerous doubts about their religion without anyone understanding what happened. Therefore, it is beneficial to express what you feel and to ask questions.

Second, you have asked the right people who grew up in an environment similar to yours and have knowledge of Islam. Many people end up asking the wrong people who either can’t relate to them or have no knowledge. This would only end up causing more problems.

The stance of the Qur’an on this issue is clear from the following verse: “They ask you [Prophet] about the end of the world, saying, ‘When will it be?’ How can you tell them that? Its time is known only to your Lord. You are only sent to warn those who fear it.” (Qur’an, 79:42-45)

The point is that when Allah says that something is “known only to your Lord,” it means that it is something that cannot be discovered by man, such as a person’s lifespan. Many people try to predict a number of things and we assume that, because of the advances in science and technology, we can also have knowledge similar to what Allah has. However, think about how many times the weather report has been wrong despite all the satellites and advanced equipment, how many people were supposed to die but lived, and how many people were supposed to have lived but died. All of these things remind us of how far we really are from Allah’s knowledge. As for using the Maya calendar, we need to stop and think about a number of things. First, how many predictions did they make? Second, what were their predictions about? Third, what was the rate of accuracy in all of their predictions and why they aren’t being used as mainstream evidence? Fourth, where did they get this knowledge from?

We must be very critical of people who claim to know the future. Most people who make such a claim are frauds while the others are merely guessing. It’s like horoscopes which are written in such a general way that people think they can actually tell the future when, in reality, they don’t. We shouldn’t be fooled by such things,even if they are packaged and presented in the name of science. Science is a very useful tool, but it is often misused and twisted to fit a certain agenda or just to sell a book. When all is said and done, remember that just because the sun has risen from the east for millions of years doesn’t mean that Allah can’t change it tomorrow and make it rise from the west.  We must remember that just as our own lives are in the hands of Allah, so is the life of the world, and He can end it whenever He likes. May Allah allow us to utilize our limited lives with what pleases Him before our time is up.

    They say that maya calendar ends by 2012, and for them that is a proof that world will end.

    Well as a kid I had small multiyear calendar that had dates up to 2000, and calendar was printed sometimes in 1980. That didn’t mean that the end of the world will be in 2000, it only meant that there was no point in calculating dates over 20 years away – 20 years was already stretch.

    Same with maya calendar, some guy or group of guys carved calendar that will last for hundreds of years. They got tired and left it at some point to end at our 2012 with a idea that someone else will pick it up to continue when time comes.

    As Imam Mustafa ‘Umar said only Allah knows future, and what I can add on that any human who claims to know future by any mean (by math, physics, witchcraft of some kind, etc…) is in no good business and we all should ignore them and give them no respect at any level, because all they want is to control other people by creating panic and confusion. Just remember Y2K computer bug – even some computer scientists panicked.

    Jzk. Much needed. Many people have asked me this. I have asked others about this. Jzk.


  3. shakib says:

    The question is interesting to me because it denotes the time we are in. The marshalling of science has made inroads in deep space but have failed to change our uneasy relations with uncertainty. The unreasonable fear not being able to control anything drives us either into the primordial regions of our mind or frees us from all inhibitions temporal or supernatural. Science is a brilliant probing methodology, determined by the integrity of the questions, observations and measurements. The interpretation of science is always historically and socially constructed. Facts are subjective understanding, culturally received and made meaningful within a set of symbols and language. The norms and mores of a civilization can only be understood within the framework of a culturally inclusive symbols, whether they come from anthropology or science. In that sense, time according to the mayans and the end of time symbolism it represents today are totally two different things although both uses the concepts of calendar to denote it.

    Asalamu Alaykum,

    Interesting article, funny comment by Abd Allah

  5. Riaz says:

    I would agree with Imam Sahib that Allah alone, who is the Creator of heavens and eath knows when this world, as it is today, would cease to exist. He has not given the knowledge of the End of Time to any one, not even to the prophets. However, some signs have been described by the prophet Muhammad, pbuh which can be seen in the books of Ahadith. From these signs, it appears that the end of time is yet far away not to speak of 2012. Isaa AS has yet to come, which is pridicted by both the Christain and Muslims. Before him, there will be rule of Dajjal (anti christ)for a long ting time. So that the theory that 2012 will be the last year for the world appears to me a joke. In any case Allah knows the best.

  6. brother J says:

    2012 might not be about the end of the world.

    there might be some other significanse to the year.

    the topic about 2012 is very vast. And musnt be discarded with a simple

    5 line answer.

    should read up on the whole topic, there is lots information going around.

    • yusuf says:

      Dear bros,

      even to talk about what will happen and what will not happen is as good as claiming onself someone equal to allah it is shirk .Pls avoid such talks….allah knows the best pls dont use ur logics and brain….

  7. Moshiur Rahman Afif says:

    As sa la mu alai kum I totally agree with you and your answer was very pleasing,Thank You

  8. nafeez says:

    Allah knws the best

  9. AbuZhaffir says:

    I agree with above quetion and its answer. But, the principal thing is the subject of the question and answer is not related with the 2012 matter. If we stated that most people is assumed that 2012 is the “end of the world” than as moslem we have to clarify that ONLY Allah know that day. The fact is the 2012 prediction is not as The End of World itself, but is just a kind of catastrophic disaster..not a doomsday. So, if it just a type of disaster in significant and amazing size, could we make a prediction and found that sign in Quran? or let say, how the rule and syariah of islam justifies the people who get the sign in some ayah of quran and connecting them to that prediction?



  11. 17 year old imran says:

    So the 2012 thing is more about “change of the world” not end. The predictions do not mark the end of day, end of people. They claim things will be catastrophic – for example, the possible disasters caused from the galactic line up of the center of the milky way, sun, and earth on Dec.21, 2012. Due to the accuracy of these predictions of natural disasters, the prediction “end of the world … as we know it” means what we call the natural order (everyday life) of the earth will be different. Consider the possible change in locations of our magnetic poles in a matter of a short time after 2012. this would cause us to re-construct many satellites, the recalculation of many physics laws dealing with the magnetics of the earth. – OVERALL A DRASTIC CHANGE in humans.

  12. Nafees Ahmad says:

    What are the symptoms of Qayamat.

  13. mustafa says:

    Ok this mean that all r following mayan calender but it depends on Almighty ALLAH’s choice whether to destroy earth on that day or to change the path of comets or meteor.If its real that dec 2012 21 is the end then its some kind of prick or joke by others.They should follow there holy book like QURAN.

  14. thanks 4 all your comments !
    the world will not end by 2012 for real , but as far as I can figure , maybe it will be no possible life after that date of 2012, but who really knows what will happens after that ?
    honestly dear brothers & sisters, it”s very far beyond the human imagination , & I think the human brains are very weak & limited to travel that far in order to come up with a decent & correct answer to fullfill our clue !
    thanks again !

  15. assalam u alaikum,
    i think this all is just predicting material thinking and the judgement day cannot be predicted.only Allah Almighty knows about it is useless to talk on this topic and we should try to please Allah by doing good deeds.

      Assalamualaikum Orahmatullahi Oabarakatuhu

      Dear Brother Muhammad Al-Saad
      I agree with you, we should not spend time on investigating what is going to happen by2012, we rather spend time on satisfying Allah (SWT), knowing Allah (SWT). Instead of wasting time on 2012, it is better to read a single more verse from Holly Quran. I see 2012 as a new way to sell more videos, movies and more hollywood nasty stuff. So, lets make up our time for Surah Fatiha: Bismillah hirrah manir rahim……………

      Thank you very much.

  16. Ahmad says:

    Allah only knows when the world will end. But your and my world can end ANY day. So, what we really need to worry about and prepare is end of one’s own world and not 2012 predictions. May Allah guide us all to the right path and save us from distractions.

  17. Mhmd al Mansur says:


    The question is, does all these things have a basis from the Quran or sunnah? It we look at it carefully enough, YES THERE IS.

    All those who have doubts, please go and start reviewing all the ahadiths related to the end times, and you will find that these events strangely match all the events predicted to happen just before the Mahdi/dajjaal/return of Jesus/Isa A.S. please dont just take my word for it, GO INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELF. and dont read from only one book or source because there are SO MANY discrepancies and additions/subtractions in some books. read from as many sources as you can.

    I would like to warn all of you my dear brothers and sisters that the times of Sayyidina al Mahdi A.S are very close. MUCH CLOSER THAN WHAT YOU ALL THINK. So please, prepare yourselves.


    Prepare yourselves mentally, physically, and most important of all, spiritually.

    May Allah Swt guide us all and make us ready. Ameen.

    And Allah knows best.

    The first chapter of the Quran appropriately named THE KEY (الفاتحة) which has 7 verses, 29 words, and 139 letters. Not only are these prime numbers but their digit sums (7=7, 2+9=11 and 1+3+9=13) are primes too, and the grand total of these sums (7+11+13 = 31) is yet another prime!!!

    After a month or so, I developed a PrimeNumber testing utility for my PocketPC and just for fun arranged these numbers (7, 29, 139) next to each other right-to-left and left-to-right (i.e. 139297 and 729139) and guess what? Both were primes! SIMPLY AMAZING (سُبحان الله).

    Convinced that THE KEY to unlocking the Quran is somehow related to prime numbers, and rather than wait for some non-Muslim scholar to discover something only for Muslims to feverishly start scanning the Quran for confirmation, I set about extracting some enlightenment from the Quran using prime numbers with the total reliance on God alone, and within few days I came across a very revealing verse.

    In chapter 55 (THE MERCIFUL الرحمن) I found 31 repetitions of a verse that comes after every time God reminds us of a certain bounty He is bestowing upon both worlds of humans and genies and asks:

    “What other bounties of your Sustainer, do you still not believe?”

    “فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ”

    Not only this verse is repeated 31 times but the sum of its verse numbers is:

    13 + 16 + 18 + 21 + 23 + 25 + 28 + 30 + 32 + 34 + 36 + 38 + 40 + 42 + 45 + 47 + 49 + 51 + 53 + 55 + 57 + 59 + 61 + 63 + 65 + 67 + 69 + 71 + 73 + 75 + 77 = 1433, a prime as you may have guessed.

    But what was REALLY REVEALING, is the fact that the current year according to the Hijri Calendar is 1430 AH.

    CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? We are less than 3 years away from a great if not the greatest bounty God may be preparing for humanity and jinn in 1433H.

    God bless all good people and good genies

      ASA : 1) I appreciate THIS ” net work ” of the qur’an . now it is clear that
      a link that extends to 2012 exists in quran ( AKB ) . but it still seems to me that 1433 is not necessarily a year (could be any other miracles of 1433 count ) and the same time again it could be a year . So my disagreement is
      that even if it probably indicate the year 2012 , it is not necessarily i think so . so, the Predictions , regardless of how they interesting , not 100% accurate to set it as 2012 Predictions . that is what i think brothers

      1.1) the no 7 of the tow prime factorizations of the 62 digit number is
      having no place , but the factor which is summed up to produce 1619 do have . even i read from another web that this the same number 1619 to be end of the world . now my aim is on no1433 &1619 .

      in the case of 1433 only the verses were added to produce 1433 .

      in the case of 1619 there was multiplier 7 that is neglected ok .

      so now it seems to me that the tow cases contradicts . correct me please?

      2) i think what is required from us regarding the last day is only believing in it’s occurrence and the people who were asking about it
      were not good people as read from the qur’an . Still when gibril(AS)
      came to the prophet and asked …………….”tell me about the time ? ”
      the prophet said ” not the asked man is knowledgeable than the asking
      man regarding it ” here the prophet left BIG message + i can not say that the prophet (saw) knows nothing about these predictions . but i can
      say the prophet (saw) knows nothing about the time EVEN IF IT IS PROBABLY POSSIBLE FOR HIM TO KNOW . this is why i disagree with this
      interesting calculations .

      3) word reference – there is no single verse tells about 2012 (time).
      – there is no single verse tells that people will discover
      it .

      • Ali Adams says:

        Salm brother and thanks for the feedback.

        Al-hamdu liAllah I found an evidence that the number 1433 is a hijri year (lunar) as Allah swt made the number of words in chapter (The Merciful) including bismAllah the same as the number of days in a lunar year, exactly 355 words that maps to 355 days of 1433AH.

        Allah swt, The Merciful, gave believers the details of the dates and locations of the 31 events of 2012. Please see for more info and an Arabic summary too to help raise awarness in sha Allah.

        Finally, neither 1433 not 1619 is the end of the world. The end of the world can come anytime at the blink of an eye as per Quran 16:77:
        أعوذ بالله من الشيطٰن الرجيم بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

        وَلِلَّهِ غَيْبُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ ۚ وَمَآ أَمْرُ ٱلسَّاعَةِ إِلَّا كَلَمْحِ ٱلْبَصَرِ أَوْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌ
        “To Allah belongs the Unseen of heavens and earth and The Hour can come at the blink of an eye, or even nearer. Truly! Allah is capable of doing anything.”

      what said by imam mustafa is true,only allah now what will hapen in future,allah can change everything.insyallah ,we wait and see what will happen in 2012 and we will now is the mayan calendar is mentioning the true prediction.

  22. Shahid says:

    Dear all Assalamoalikum,
    Thank you very much for writing on the subject, I think this is the responsibility of Muslim scholars to guide the Ummah with true guide line of Holy Quran about the day of Judgment end of this world. Even prophet salahu aliwasalm hadn’t know about the Qiamat .Science is not too much which can predict about the end of this word i think this is just to develop fear in people, might be Allah convert them to Islam which is the true and final religion .We pray with Allah Who creator of this world and Known better when this world should end however many many Hadis are available which leads to the symptom of Qiamat but not exact year or day.
    Allah helps all of us towards right way.

  23. Ibrahim says:

    Why care about 2012 when you can die anytime? what if you prepare for 2012 an you pass away one day before? you know?

  24. nurul ali says:

    Allah bestow Quran To make us only to pray and serve Allah as his servant….. why all the fuss about end of world……… i don’t care even the world gonna end at the next second…… what happen will happen.. what not happen will not happen…. Allah make them all good and bad have the good things to us…….. why make prediction when already told in quran and hadith… the sign of judgment day…. we hear them(propecy of the end of the world).. but take precaution…. we just do what we do…………believe there is no god than Allah, pray 5 times a day….. fasting.. zakat….. goin hajj….. and many thing told in quran what to do and what not to do…….

  25. thana says:

    If you says Allah alone , who is the Creator of heavens and earth knows when this world ends. Why muslim is not first religion in this earth and why must be hindu and mayan ?

    end of world not at 2012 this all fraud and fool people who thought the world will be end 2012 . but may be some events will occur but they cant destroy our earth .ALLAH better know all hidden facts.

    well , I relly injoy what people warry about 2012 its very intersting in the world end .We know allah is knows avery things and we don’t know when we die or what is come up in a futher Just allah knows I agree those things but I ‘ve a question
    IS there any information(point) Quran tell us when the world end?I know Quran Is true of Allah rules for us and we must know what we have to obay for Allah…

  28. shak says:

    i wud like to say that as allah has already mentioned in the holy quran that it is only he who knows when the world will come to an end so no one can make predictions abt it not even using science as a tool this is just a hoax so ppl do not fear allah is great and quran also says that 40 years before the arrival of dooms day jesus christ wud be comming here to guide the ppl off the track and since jesus is nt here yet so no chance 4 world to end in 2012

    Salaam all. The whole 2012 thing seems to be a plot just to create mass hysteria, may the Creator reenforce the imaan in all our hearts and protect us all. These people are taking advantage of a generally stupid and vulnerable population (sorry, gotta be honest) and creating panic in order to sell their books and films, so at the end of the day it’s all about profit.

  32. Asief says:

    Another thing, why would Allah give this information to savages like the Mayans or a kaafir like Nostradamus but not give it to His beloved Nabi (saw)? We should all be careful, the Luciferians control the media and consequently control the way the world thinks…

I didnt understand the answer which given by you all. I agree the end of the world will only knows by Allah other than no one, but given me the answer for my question……..

    Thank You

    • mustafa says:

      wa alaykum as salam,

      The answer to your question is that Allah did not say anything about the world ending in 2012, or any other year, in the Qur’an, neither explicitly or implicitly.

      I hope and pray that that answers your question.


  35. AbuOmarAlMisry says:

    Assalamu Alykum,

    Does it really matter? If I’m going to die on 12/21/2012 or on 12/15/2009 or any other time, my biggest worry is have I lived a good life? Did I do enough of what Allah (SWT) told me to do, and did I stay away from what He (SWT) told me to stay away from? The only thing anyone of us can predict is that we will die one day. Knowing that, shouldn’t our biggest concern be planning and preparation for result of that day? i.e, no more chances to help our souls.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Asalamu Alaikum, Peace and Blessing be upon you all.
    In the name of Allah, The Compassionate, The Merciful
    2012, apocalypse, end of the world, doomsday, prophetic futuristic prophecies……………
    Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I consider myself privileged to have embraced and reverted Islam, and stand fast on my belief that which the Holy Quran teaches, I believe there is only One God, Allah (SWT) and that Prophet Muhammad (SAAW) is the true messenger of God.
    Having read through many articles, stories and prophetic futuristic predictions to the “End of the World” as we know it, it is interesting that most if not all are WRONG, Yes, Yes, Yes that are all wrong, wrong, wrong and have no supporting evidence what so ever to support or back up their predictions.
    How can I be so sure and make such a bold statement many ask, simply, and to the point, in which of or any of the so called prophetic futuristic predictions made or claimed to be true predictions, Has the words “ And God Said or God reveled to me” by anyone of the so called prophetic futuristic predictions, other than those proclaimed in Three collaborations of the Words according to God, being 1- The Holy Quran (Islam), 2- The Holy Bible (Christian), 3- The Tanakh (Jewish Bible).
    These Three and only these three sources of reference, all have the same message and are all proclaimed by the messengers of God throughout the ages, That the end will come on judgment day in accordance with God’s time……….. God’s Time, not your time or my time or any other time and most certainly not in the sensationalized time of so called doomsday, end of the world, apocalyptic prophetic futuristic predictions, and certainly not according to the word of Hollywood.
    The end of the world, end of time, apocalyptic end to mankind, are all sensationalized time lines which bear no truth or resemblance to the true fact as foretold by the message of God in the Holy Quran and the Bibles of most other religions, that the end will be on judgment day, not before and is and will be in God’s Time.
    As a Muslim, we should rather spend our time on satisfying Allah (SWT) and look to what is important in ensuring our life that we live is according to Allah (SWT) and that of the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (s.a.a.w) as Only Allah is the all knowing and all seeing and no other.
    To dear NOOREINISA, if you are still looking for answers to 2012, the answer my friend is only Allah has the answer and is the All Knowing, The Compassionate, The Merciful, and as a mantra, keep reciting in your mind and heart, There is but only one God, Allah, and no other has the right to be mentioned or praised, and Muhammad is the prophet of God.
    Wishing you all peace and blessings, through 2012 and beyond and my Allah grant us all the wisdom and virtue to overcome all that is placed before us as a diversions and keep us on the right path to the life according to Allah the All Knowing, The Compassionate, The Merciful.

    1.If some thing will occur in 21 12 2012 then , it must be mentioned in hadith . If it has mentioned in hadith then ,
    it is only a SIGN and not the end .

    2.The qur’an is clear as 1+1=2 . why we complicate this upon ourselves ?

    3.what if 2012 is the end ? you want to change it ?or to be prepare ? yes? why not prepare for tomorrow ?

  40. islam says:

    these are things that they are making up to get peoples attention.. only Allah knows the end of the world, and it may happen today also!!

  41. Asalamu Alaikum : I get some thing .look at it .
    21-12-2012 = 2 – 9-14 34 clear ?
    so the hijra calendar 1400 years is already over . So , what is going to happen in the 34th year ? please refer to the corresponding chapter .
    SABA[34:2] He knows all that goes into the earth, and all that comes out thereof; all that comes down from the sky and all that ascends thereto: and He is the Most Merciful, the Oft-Forgiving.
    HAVE YOU NOTED THE STATEMENT “all that comes down from the sky” .could it be the comet ?

    also visit the following :

    Saba [34:9] See they not what is before them and behind them, of the sky and the earth? If We wished, We could cause the earth to swallow them up, or cause a piece of the sky to fall upon them. Verily in this is a Sign for every devotee that turns to Allah (in repentance).
    now the following must be clear from the above sentence :
    “We could cause the earth to swallow them up, or cause a piece of the sky to fall upon them. Verily in this is a Sign for every devotee that turns to Allah (in repentance). ” have you seen?
    but still only Allah knows the end of the world . PLEASE MY BROTHERS & SISTERS DON’T BI LIVE SUCH PREDICTIONS.

  42. ahmed says:

    very well said,this world is a test for us. Do not be fooled by this but also prepare for the day of judgement .

  43. Nazia Khan says:


    1- Increasing turmoil and natural disasters, war, death and conflict. See bellow the list of signs given by the Quaran and Prophet Muhammad.

    2- Major catastrophe that will kill 2/3 of the world’s population. The continents will move and due to the massive changes plants, animals and human life will die off in large numbers. There will be not much food. It is possible that this will happen in the year 2012 but nothing in the Islamic texts confirms this. The only possible sign is that there are no predictions made in Islam beyond the year 2000. Either a meteorite or some sort of energy pull that will cause a shift in the earth axis. This will cause the “sun to come our from the west” (see bellow predictions). Take a globe and flip is upside sown – you will see that the sun will come out form the west. At this time also there will be constant daylight as the earth tilts and moves into the new axis position. As you know Muslims pray 5 times a day. Prophet Muhammad indicate to people that at this time they should break up the day in equal portions and maintain their scheduled prayers.

    3- The appearance of the ANTICRHIST. In Islamic terminology it is called the DJALL or LIAR or DECEIVER. This individual will be a Jew whose father will be a Rabbi, he will be blind from one eye and the remaining eye will stick out like a grape. He will have extraordinary powers that will make people believe he is god. He can only be killed by Jesus (a.s.) He will be born in or around the Arabian Penninsula. The fact that he will be Jewish is pointed out in the Torah (Old Testament in the Bible) – Prince of The Israelites and the Islamic texts point out that his main followers will be Jews.
    Due to his miraculous powers he will be taken by most of the Jewish and Christian people as the Messiah. As you know Evangelical Christians are waiting for the Messiah once Israel is established. Any one will be able to identify him because he will only support evil actions. Significant amount of Muslims will leave their Faith to also join him a believe in him. It is predicted that a Muslim will believe in the morning and disbelieve in the evening and a non believer will not believe in the morning and believe in the evening. The only people who will oppose him will be a small number of believing Muslims. The Muslims will be persecuted by the ANTICHRIST who will present them as an evil force (sounds familiar?). He will claim he is himself god. The reason for people following him is that due to the amount of turmoil, war, and killings many people will stop believing in God and be angry at Him (as opposed to blaming ourselves for our own corrupt ways). They will look at this individual as their saviour who will have power to produce some food or water for them. Anyone who follows or worships the ANTICHRIST will be cursed to Hell by God.

    4- In the Arabian Peninsula an individual will appear. In the Islamic predictions his name is MEHDI (IMAM MEHDI r.a.). He will gather the Muslims who oppose the ANTICHRIST and fight him. For MEHDI and the opposing forces it will be an ongoing loosing battle. Muslims will be defeated in the East and then the West. The ANTICHRIST will come to the walls of Mecca and Medina but he will not be able to enter them.

    5- Jesus (a.s.) will descend in Jerusalem. In the Islamic belief Jesus is not crucified, but God replaced him in the cross with another individual and took up to Heaven Jesus (a.s.). One of the main predictions in relation to Jesus (a.s.) is that his descend will be witnessed by EVERYBODY. He will declare his condition as a Prophet and not God. People will turn away from the ANTICHRIST. Jesus (a.s.) will kill the ANTICHRIST at one of the gates of Jerusalem.

    6- Once this happens the people of Gog and Magog will come out. They will be all killed. Peace and prosperity will then descend upon the whole world where Jesus (a.s.) will be the leader of all people. At this point Jesus (a.s.) will marry and have a family.

    7- Jesus (a.s.) will die. Then, all good people will be taken up by God through a wind that will descend and kill them. Only corrupt, unbelieving people will remain. Then end of the wold will then come and Judgment Day.

    Quran and Prime Numbers
    Prime numbers are used in cryptology. Cryptology is the study of using secret writing. This is used to keep some government information secret. It is also used on the Internet to keep sensitive information private. For example, if you buy something on the Internet with a credit card, two large prime numbers are used to send your card details to the online store to keep your credit card number safe and prevent other from steeling your money.

    Almighty God also used prime numbers to hide information behind the holy text of “The Quran” or “The Readable” (Islam’s book) which literally means readable despite being encrypted or cipher text.

    The Key
    Subhan Allah who built chapter Al-Fatiha using prime numbers and named it Al-Fatiha not because it is the opening of the book but the Opener or The Key to the rest of The Book.

    This chapter (Al-Fatiha or The Key) consists of 7 verses, 29 words, and 139 letters. All are prime numbers. What’s more, their digit sums (7=7, 2+9=11 and 1+3+9=13) are also prime numbers, and the sum of these sums (7+11+13 = 31) is yet another prime number!

    Not only that, even joining these numbers left-to-right 729139 and right-to-left 139297 results is prime numbers too! Simply revealing!!! Now maybe we can appreciate why it is called The Key.

    The Message
    More evidence that Al-Fatiha is The Key and not merely the opening chapter is also encoded in the Quran itself.

    Although the number of chapters (114) and the total number of verses (6236) are not prime numbers, if we consider the Quran as two parts, a Key and a Message, then:

    Quran = Key + Message
    114 = 1 + 113 chapters
    6236 = 7 + 6229 verses

    where 1, 113, 7, and 6229 are primes and their digit sums (1=1, 1+1+3=5, 7=7, 6+2+2+9=19) are primes too. Although since 1900AD, 1 is considered not a prime but simply The Unit of all numbers.

    Quran and 2012
    Quran chapter #55 (The Merciful) has 31 repetitions of:
    “فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ”
    “What other bounties of your Sustainer do you still belie?”

    Not only 31 is a prime number but the sum of the 31 verse numbers 13 + 16 + 18 + 21 + 23 + 25 + 28 + 30 + 32 + 34 + 36 + 38 + 40 + 42 + 45 + 47 + 49 + 51 + 53 + 55 + 57 + 59 + 61 + 63 + 65 + 67 + 69 + 71 + 73 + 75 + 77 = 1433 is also a prime number and its digit sum (1+4+3+3 = 11) is yet another prime number.

    But this is nothing compared to what we learn when we realize that the current Islamic year is 1431AH. This magic sum 1433 could indeed be a reference to the Hijri year 1433AH but this can easily be dismissed as a mere speculation or wishful thinking. That is until we learn that this chapter consists of exactly 355 words including Bism Allah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem, the same number of words as the number of days in the Hijri year 1433AH! Even more remarkably, despite most Hijri years having 354 days, 1433AH is a leap year and thus will have 355 days in sha Allah. This undeniably suggests that every word in this chapter represents a day in the year 1433AH and as we have 31 repetitions of the above verse that consists of four Arabic words, then each repetition represents four days in the year 1433AH where the first repetition maps to 7-10 January 2012 and the last repetition maps to 4-7 November 2012.

    2012 Speculations
    It is therefore speculated (no evidence yet) that 31 events are to take place between 7 January 2012 and 7 November 2012 each lasting four days and if these events are any kind of a meteorite shower then each event would leave a trail around the Earth as it spins four times on its axis in four days along the same latitude repeating four times. That mean, there would be 31 danger latitudes that people should avoid and as Allah named the chapter The Merciful, He has encoded these latitudes in the numbers of the repeated verse itself (i.e. latitude 13, 16, 18, .., 77). Al-hamdu liAllah Rabb Al-3aalemeen, Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem.

    If indeed the first event occurs along latitude 13 then we all should know that the next one will be along latitude 16, followed by latitude 18 and so on until latitude 77.

    Beyond 2012
    This in no way suggest that the World is going to end in 2012 as there is also another indirect reference to the year 1619AH in the same verses and only Allah knows best and controls all.

    May God, The Merciful, The Benevolent bless us all with guidance to His Light and keep us along the Right Path forever, in sha Allah.

    Hello Brothers,

    I see so many researches have been done by so many. but missed the simple things said in Quran and by Prophet(PBUH). dear Every one, no one know the end of the world except ALLAH only. the creator and the almighty.

    brother’s it is simple and simple and simple, to say that 2012 will not be the end. but there will be destruction because of the sun cycle. The Maayans created their calender according to the sun cycle and the sun cycle ends at 2012 order for this cycle to take place, there will be destruction as we already see.

    for the world to end, find below the simple n simple n simple things revealed than complicating your head about 2012.

    Point 1. Mahadi Alaisalaam has to be born in syria and he will be ruling the world for nearly 7 years.
    Point 2. Dajjal has to appear.
    Point 3. Easa Alaisalaam has to return and will rule the world for 40 years after killing Dajjal.

    and so on, these are the only few things that has been revealed to us about the end of the world, but no one can say when, coz only ALLAH knows that.

    do your duties towards HIM, and you will not fear death, but only ALLAH.

    Islam is very simple, dont try to complicate your self.

    I repeat:

    Neither 2012 (1433A) nor 2192 (1619AH) not eaven 2282 (1709) is the end of the world.

    The end of the world can come anytime at the blink of an eye as per Quran 16:77:
    أعوذ بالله من الشيطٰن الرجيم بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
    وَلِلَّهِ غَيْبُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ ۚ وَمَآ أَمْرُ ٱلسَّاعَةِ إِلَّا كَلَمْحِ ٱلْبَصَرِ أَوْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌ
    “To Allah belongs the Unseen of heavens and earth and The Hour can come at the blink of an eye, or even nearer. Truly! Allah is capable of doing anything.”

    why dont these people try to use their little brains and stop comparing your knowledge to the THE ALMIGHT ALLAH. its gunnah and its a shirk to predict only what ALLAH knows. 2012 was all a pack of noodles. Media and attention thats what it was for… the quran people, you will get your answer to the questions you ask! only ALLAH knows the end of days, yes!!!! their are signs but no predicted date!!

  50. sahib says:

    You are right. Prophet Muhammad did not know when the Promised Day will occur as attested by verse 79:43-45 and also this verse:

    Say: “I do not know whether the Promise is close at hand or far.” (Al Jinn: 25).

    However,the following verses indicates that God might have disclosed the secret to another Rasul.

    He is the Knower of the Unseen, and He does not disclose His knowledge to anyone
    Except to a Rasul of His choice. (Al Jinn: 26-27).

    The question to ponder is, who is the Rasul. Obviously not Muhammad as attested by the above verses, but could it be Daniel, Ezekiel, Moses or Jesus or another Rasul whom only Allah knows..
