century, however, these conflicts were always regional, small-scaleaffairs. The wars that involved the whole of mankind erupted in the 20
century. Millions of people lost their lives during the First and Second WorldWars. As many people again were left homeless, crippled, or deprived of their loved ones. The 20
century opened with wars, and saw increasingly savage onesas time passed. The Korean war, the Vietnam War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Iran-Iraqand the Gulf War …Bosnia, Palestine, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Kashmir … The repercussions of war reached ever greater dimensions as modernmilitary technology advanced. The use of nuclear, biological and chemicalweapons led to terrible mass slaughter.It has also been established that violent and terrorist movementsincreased rapidly in the 20
century. Tens of thousands of people havebeen killed or crippled as a result of the actions of organizations that haveemerged with ideological agenda and claims of racial discrimination. This inhuman picture, which reached a peak during the last century, isone of the major pieces of evidence that we are in the age described in thehadith and that Doomsday is at hand.
