Is Mullah Umar the Anti-Christ? by Faisal Islam
He appears to match the Hadith descriptions of Dajjal ( Anti-Christ) because 1) He has one eye 2) He is from Khurasan ( Afghanistan) 3) he wears the Cloak of Muhammad 4) He declared himself to be Amirul Momineen ( successor of the Prophet) 5) He came with a vision of Fire and a Garden ( His version of Paradise is actually Hell) 6) If he is an Afghan he is probably of Israelite descent making him the Davidian Messiah 7) He moves very fast from East to West as stated in Hadiths. 8) He says Allah came to him in person in a Dream.I've found out some information about the Dajjal's eye. Hadith in al-Bukhari:
"When Dajjal appears, his complexion will be white and his right eye will be blind, while the left eye will shine like a bright star." I am not sure what the exact source of this Hadiths is but I found it here website http://www.islamicparty.com/commonsense/14antidote.htm This information seems to fit the exact photo of Mullah Umar found in Taliyah.org website. His left eye looks like its glowing. I've also seen that photo of Mullah Umar floating around in other websites. I've taken a look at the Hadiths . It appears that different Hadiths say different things about the blind eye.....I would imagine that one of the narrations is accurate ...and I am leaning towards the opinion that Mullah Umar is Dajjal because of his "close fit" to prophecy. Here are select Hadiths.
Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 7005: ( Blind Right Eye)
"Ibn Umar reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) made a mention of Dajjal in the presence of the people and said: Allah is not one-eyed and behold that Dajjal is blind of the right eye and his eye would be like a floating grape". Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 7010: ( Blind Left Eye)
"Hudhaifa reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Dajjal is blind of left eye with thick hair and there would be a garden and fire with him and his fire would be a garden and his garden would be fire. " .............I believed I've missed the A&E special concerning the Afghan Israelites. I've read some information about the Afghani Israelites here http://www.moshiach.com/features/tribes/afghanistan.php . I believe the year 2012 is important because it marks the end of Mayan calendrics. Mayans developed a very sophisticated system of astronomical calculations. I believe Jesus Christ will return as a Khalifa/Caliph/ King and begin the Second cycle of human history. The Qur'an likens Jesus (pbuh) to Adam (pbuh), thus I believe he will play a parallel role. I have also heard that this Ramadan will have a Double Eclipse (Full Solar + Full Lunar) , a major sign that indicates that Imam Mahdi will soon rise. So, if Imam Mahdi rises between 2003-2005 ( and Hadiths say he will rule for 7 years --till his death) , 2012 appears like a "good" estimate for the beginning of Jesus Christ's Kingdom. Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is said to accept the allegiance of Iraqis and Syrians (according to Hadiths)...this seems appropriate considering the political climate...However, of course this is all speculation and only Allah knows and Wills.
