MADINAH RETURNS TO CENTER-STAGE IN AKHIR AL-ZAMĀN
Signs of Last Day
Written by Imran N Hosein
Wednesday, 10 Jamadil Akhir 1433
Madinah 1343 (h): out of Dajjāl’s frying-pan and into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhābi fire
In just another 10 years from now in the month of Rabīal-Thāni 1443 the world of Islam will mark the 100
th
anniversary of the transfer of power in Makkah from the Ottoman Turks to the Arab Sultān ‘Abd al-‘Azīz Ibn
Saūd. Troops loyal to the Sultan of Najd conquered Makkah in the month of Rabī al-Thāni 1343 (i.e.,
October 30
th
1924 in Pope Gregory’s western Christian Catholic calendar) in consequence of which ‘Abd
al-‘Azīz eventually proclaimed himself Sultān of Najd and King of Hejāz.
In 10 years from now it will also be a hundred years since Makkah and Madinah were taken out of Dajjāl’s
Ottoman frying pan only to enter into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhabi fire. Let there be no doubt in the reader’s mind
that after having shamelessly aligned Saudi Arabia with the Zionist Anglo-American Judeo-Christian alliance for
the longest while, Saudi Arabia’s leaders have now made that State a strategic ally of the Zionist State of Israel.
And hence it is clear that they work for al-Masīh al-Dajjāl, i.e., Dajjāl the false Messiah or Anti-Christ. This
is perhaps the implication of the vision in which Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) saw Dajjāl
making Tawāf around the Ka’aba. There is also considerable evidence that the Ottomans acted, consciously
or unconsciously, on Dajjāl’s behalf by rendering considerable assistance to western Christianity. They did so
by repeatedly plunging a vicious and venomous knife for some 600 years into the heart of its rival, i.e. eastern
Christianity or Rūm. This was in accord with Dajjāl’s agenda since it was western Christians who made an
alliance with Jews, and it is that alliance which brought Israel into being. Rūm never made such an alliance with
the Jews!
The predictable result was intense hatred for Islam and hostility towards Muslims on the part of those in Rūm
who suffered so unjustly and for so long a period of time.
Both the Ottoman State, as well as Saudi Arabia, mysteriously and wickedly disregarded the prophecy of the
blessed Prophet that Muslims will make an End-Time alliance with eastern Christianity or Rūm. Hence both the
Ottomans as well as the Saudi-Wahhabis rendered strategic assistance to Dajjāl.
The Ottoman Empire conquered and occupied much of the Arab world – including the Hejāz – and succeeded
in transferring the capital of the Khilāfah (Caliphate) – for the first time ever - out of the Arab world to the
former Christian Byzantine city of Constantinople in Euro-Asia. The Ottomans hardly had any credentials to rule
over the heart-land of Islam. Yet, in accordance with Dajjāl’s plan, they did so for more than 400 years until a
European-engineered Arab Spring dismantled Ottoman rule, destroyed the institution of the Khilāfah, and
installed pro-western rulers over the Arabs (including the Hijāz). The destruction of the Khilāfah and transfer
of power to pro-western Arab rulers paved the way for a State of Israel to be successfully established in a Holy
Land that was located in the very heart of the Arab world. Without 400 years of imperial Ottoman rule over the
Arabs, followed by that ‘Arab Spring’, the Zionist State of Israel could never have been established.
Sharīf al-Husain, the Ottoman-appointed Arab Sharīf of Makkah, did claim the Khilāfah for himself, in
response to the Turkish abolition of the Khilāfah, but it was too late for an Arab Khilāfah to be restored.
Britain used ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Ibn Saud to make short work of that short-lived Arab Khilāfah and to then ensure
that the Khilāfah of Islam could never be restored so long as the Saudi-Wahhabis controlled the Hejāz. Husain
had to flee, and the subsequent Saudi-Wahhabi rule over the Hejāz ensured (from a British view) that the

http://www.imranhosein.org/articles/32/397-madinah-returns-to-center-stage-in-akhir-al-zamn.html?tmpl=component&print=1&layout=default&page= 2/8
Khilāfah remained permanently buried – never to be restored (see my book entitled ‘The Caliphate the Hijāz
and the Saudi-Wahhabi Nation-State’ on my website: http://www.imranhosein.org/books/126-the-caliphate-
the-hijaz-and-the-saudi-wahabi-nation-state.html.
For just over 400 years of Ottoman rule Makkah and Madinah remained gloriously restricted and cleverly
suppressed as places of grand annual pilgrimages, without even a hint of these now-remote cities playing any
other role in Islamic affairs. However when the Saudi-Wahhabis took over the Haramain al-Sharifain they
launched a sinister effort to exploit the Hajj of 1344 to gain political and religious legitimacy in the world of
Islam for their rule over the Hejāz and the Haramain. The effort failed. They then proceeded to exploit the city
of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) for propagating an Islamic creed with a one-eyed epistemology that
robbed Arab Islamic scholarship of spiritual insight (firāsah al-mu’min). Madinah became a university town
with an agenda of refashioning both Arab and non-Arab Islamic thought in such wise that scholars could ensure
that the purest expression of Islam would prevail in Madinah. Instead, that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam
produced Islamic scholars who could no longer distinguish between appearance and reality in matters
pertaining to Dajjāl. As a consequence Saudi Arabia could bury the Khilāfah and continue to maintain
fraternal ties with the Zionist West with no significant scholarly religious opposition. In fact, University scholars
and students who dared to challenge the Saudi-Wahhabi agenda that has now culminated in secret alliance with
Israel, could even lose their heads.

Jerusalem moves to center-stage
During these more than six centuries while Madinah remained a back-water town, and subsequently became a
mournfully silent one-eyed university town, a Judeo-Christian Anglo-American alliance (which nurtured the
Zionist Movement from its very birth) moved incrementally and successfully to take Jerusalem to center-stage in
world affairs. Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) prophesied as much when he said:

Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will
be when Yathrib (i.e., the city of Madinah) will be desolate; the desolate state of Yathrib will be when the great
war comes; the outbreak of the great war will be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the
conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by) Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging).
He (the Prophet) then he tapped with his hand the thigh or the shoulder of the one to whom he was talking and
said: This is certainly true like you are (sitting) here (he meant Mu'aadh ibn Jabal).
(Sunan Abī Daūd)
Great wars will soon lead to the conquest of Constantinople
This essay presents a viewpoint that we are now located at that moment in time when Jerusalem is flourishing
while Madinah, in comparison to Jerusalem, is in a state of silent mournful desolation - playing absolutely no role
whatsoever in the affairs of either the world of Islam or the world at large. If this viewpoint is correct, then the
implication would be that we can now expect great wars prophesied in the above Hadīth to soon commence.
This writer expects those wars to commence within the next few months of the publication of this essay. Those
wars will eventually provoke civil war in Turkey which, in turn, will result in the prophesied End-Time conquest
of Constantinople in contra-distinction to the barbarous Ottoman conquest of the city that was disgraceful and
an embarrassment to Islam. It is only after the coming Islamic conquest of Constantinople, at which time the

http://www.imranhosein.org/articles/32/397-madinah-returns-to-center-stage-in-akhir-al-zamn.html?tmpl=component&print=1&layout=default&page= 3/8
Cathedral of Hagia Sophia will be returned to the Eastern Christianity with an apology and the city will recover
the name of Constantinople, it is only then that ‘a day like a week’ will end (see Jerusalem in the Qur’an) and
Dajjāl will appear in person while attempting to rule the world from Jerusalem (see above Hadīth).
It is difficult to anticipate how the Turkish civil war will take place. But it entirely possible that a Turkish military
adventure into Syria to bring about such regime change as would advance the Zionist agenda, could provoke
the Turkish Muslims to commence the effort to free Turkey from NATO’s venomous embrace. That effort can
be assisted by Arab fighters flocking to Turkey from all over the Arab world. The world can also witness
fighters flowing into Turkey from Albania, Bosnia, Azerbaijan and other neighboring territories.
There are many who would argue that the prophecy concerning the conquest of Constantinople has already
been fulfilled, and hence it is necessary for us to address the subject at some length.
Has the conquest of Constantinople already occurred?
The blessed Prophet was full of praise for the army that would accomplish that conquest, and for the Amīr who
would command that army:
.(هﺪﻨﺴﻣ ﻲﻓ ﺪﻤﺣأ مﺎﻣﻹا هور) ﺶﯿﺠﻟا ﻚﻟذ ﺶﯿﺠﻟا ﻢﻌﻨﻟو ﺎھﺮﯿﻣأ ﺮﯿﻣﻷا ﻢﻌﻨﻠﻓ ﺔﯿﻨﯿﻄﻨﻄﺴﻘﻟا ﻦﺤﺘﻔﺘﻟ : ﻢﻠﺳو ﮫﯿﻠﻋ ﷲ ﻰﻠﺻ ﷲ لﻮﺳر لﺎﻗ
"Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will her leader be, and what a wonderful
army will that army be!"
( Musnad, Imam Ahmad)
When secular Turkish nationalists conquered the city and proceeded to establish the modern secular Republic
of Turkey in 1923, they chose Istanbul as the official name of the city and prohibited the use of the previous
name or names; as a consequence the name ‘Constantinople’ has been receding from common vocabulary.
Indeed it now appears to have entered into the museum of history.
Istanbul was not a new name. It was one of several names previously used for the city. However the name by
which the city was best known was without doubt the name of Constantinople. And the prohibition of the use of
any other name appears to have directed primarily against the use of that most well-known name. There is a
reason why the name of the city was changed, and the use of other names prohibited, and this essay explains
that reason.
It is commonly believed that this prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) was fulfilled in
1453 when the Ottoman Turks, under the command of the young Sultan Muhammad (Mehmet) Fatih,
conquered Constantinople. However the hadīth quoted below makes it quite clear that the conquest will take
place in Ākhir al-Zamān just prior to the appearance of the Anti-Christ (or al-Masīh al-Dajjāl) in person (i.e.,
in the form of a human being who would declare that he is the Messiah):
Narrated Mu'adhibnJabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) said: ……the outbreak of the great war will
be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by)
Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging). …….
(Sunan, AbīDaūd)
The essentially godless secular Turkish nationalists did not want Muslims to ever realize that the conquest of
Constantinople prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwa salaam) had not as yet occurred, and
was still to come; and that appears to be at least one of the reasons why they changed the name of the city.
Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) used the name Constantinople (al-Konstantaniyyah in Arabic)
3/5/2014 MADINAH RETURNS TO CENTER-STAGE IN AKHIR AL-ZAMĀN
http://www.imranhosein.org/articles/32/397-madinah-returns-to-center-stage-in-akhir-al-zamn.html?tmpl=component&print=1&layout=default&page= 4/8
when he prophesied about the city. He did not use any other name. Hence if that name were to be relegated to
a museum, it was quite possible that Muslim attention would be diverted from the implications of the prophecy.
We pointed out earlier that we are now located at that moment in history when Jerusalem is flourishing while
Madina is in a state of desolation. Hence it is clear that the world now stands on the brink of great wars which,
in turn, will provoke the prophesied Muslim conquest of Constantinople. That Muslim conquest will not only
liberate the city from godless nationalist Turkish rule, but also extricate and liberate the city from NATO’s
venomous Zionist embrace.
In the unlikely event that further evidence is required to prove our thesis, we now present further evidence which
prove beyond doubt that the 1453 Ottoman conquest of Constantinople could not have been the conquest
prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam).
Consider the following:
The army that conquered Constantinople was comprised of several units. Some were volunteers who were
attracted by the prospect of looting the city. Others were well-trained regular troops drawn from all parts of the
Ottoman Empire. But at the heart of that Ottoman army was the best-trained elite unit of Janissaries. These
were comprised of Christian children who were taken by force from their parents (in territories conquered by
the Ottomans), and who were then converted to Islam by force and were given the best military training
possible. They all owed their loyalty personally to the Sultan. Never in the history of Islam did Muslims ever
disgrace Islam in such a way as to seize Christian children and convert them by force to Islam, and to then use
them as such an elite fighting force that was supposed to be fighting in the name of Islam. This was manifestly
sinful, monstrously embarrassing and a direct violation of Allah’s command in the Qur’an prohibiting conversion
to Islam by force. The predictable result was to create eternal hatred and enmity for Islam and Muslims in the
territories from which these Christian children were abducted. Those eastern Christian territories were precisely
the Rūm concerning whom the Prophet prophesied that Muslims would enter into an End-Time alliance (i.e.,
with them).
When the Ottoman army broke through the defenses of the city and finally succeeded in entering the city as
conquerors, what followed was “killing, looting, raping, burning and enslaving”. This may have been, and may
still be the way that armies behave when they conquer a city, but this was not the way of Islam which enjoins
respect and protection for the lives and honour of women, children, the elderly and those – like priests – whose
lives are devoted to religion. Indeed there is evidence that even the Christian churches and monasteries were
violated by the rampaging so-called Islamic army which broke in and proceeded to rape, plunder and kill even
inside the church. The Sultan gave permission for this to continue, unrestricted by any ethical norms of warfare,
for a period of three days. The Ottomans were unconcerned about the fact that Constantinople was the capital
city of Byzantine Christianity (or Rūm). Such conduct on the part of the Ottoman army ensured eternal hatred
for Islam in Byzantium.
But the conduct of the Sultan himself, as soon as he entered the city, was deplorable. He disgracefully and
sinfully ordered that the great Byzantine Cathedral of Hagia Sophia which had been constructed 1000 years
earlier by the Emperor Justinian, to be converted into a Masjid. When Muslims conquered Jerusalem at the
time of the Khilāfah of Umar bin al-Kahttab, the Patriach of Jerusalem, Sophronius, refused to hand over the
city to other than the Khalīfah himself. Umar had to travel from Madinah to Jerusalem to accept the keys to the
city. While he was being escorted on a tour of the holy churches of Jerusalem the time for Salāt arrived and the
Patriach graciously invited Umar to perform his Salāt right there in the Church of the Resurrection. Umar
declined because he feared that it might constitute grounds for Muslims to subsequently convert the church to a
Masjid. The Ottoman conversion of Hagia Sophia to a Masjid was not an ordinary event. This was the
greatest and most magnificent church in the entire Christian world. It had retained that position for 1000 years.
3/5/2014 MADINAH RETURNS TO CENTER-STAGE IN AKHIR AL-ZAMĀN
http://www.imranhosein.org/articles/32/397-madinah-returns-to-center-stage-in-akhir-al-zamn.html?tmpl=component&print=1&layout=default&page= 5/8
In converting the church to a Masjid the Sultan not only embarrassed the world of Islam, but also drove a
venomous knife into the very heart of eastern Byzantine Christianity that would never ever be forgotten. While
others may convert churches, monasteries and even masājid (e.g. Cordoba) an Amīr who is personally praised
by the Prophet himself cannot be expected to descend to that disgraceful standard of conduct.
We may note finally that Ottoman Sultans never married – because they did want to be encumbered with
respect for legal rights which Islam gave to wives and to blood brothers (in matters pertaining to succession to
leadership in a hereditary system of leadership). And so they restricted themselves to sleeping with slaves. Islam
restricted a man to four wives, but there was no restriction as to how many female slaves he could own and with
whom he could sleep. And so Ottoman Sultans had a stable of slaves referred to as the Harem. These women
were almost exclusively taken from conquered Christian territories. They had no rights. The prophet of Islam
had commanded: Give your slaves to eat the food that you yourself eat, and give them to wear the
clothes that you yourself wear. Thus Islam restored the humanity of slaves and gave them rights. The Ottoman
Sultans on the other hand, would sleep with a slave woman, and if she became pregnant and gave birth to a son,
he would then terminate all sexual contact with her. He did this to ensure that she would have no more children,
and hence no rivals to her son if he were ever to become Sultan himself. The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam)
declared that “marriage was a half of faith”. It is not at all possible that the blessed prophet would condone
such conduct on the part of Ottoman Sultans.
It is clear to this writer that Sultan Muhammad Fatih could not qualify as the Amīr mentioned in the hadīth; nor
could that Ottoman army which he led qualify as the army mentioned in the hadith. The implication is that the
Muslim conquest of Istanbul or Constantinople is an event which is yet to occur.
The reader is encouraged to study the subject further and to then come to his own conclusion.
Madinah returns to center-stage
This essay presents arguments and evidence that Madinah will soon be liberated from being a back-water, silent
Saudi-Wahhabi university town into a city that will dramatically occupy center-stage in the affairs of the world,
and this should warm the hearts of Muslims around the world.
Central to this thesis is the End-Time prophecy that the Arabs will be destroyed by epidemics (formerly referred
to as plagues):

Narrated Auf bin Malik: I went to the Prophet during the Ghazwa of Tabūk while he was sitting in a leather tent.
He said, "Count six signs that indicate the approach of the Hour: my death, the conquest of Jerusalem, a plague
that will afflict you (and kill you in great numbers) as the plague that afflicts sheep, the increase of
wealth to such an extent that even if one is given one hundred Dinārs, he will not be satisfied; then an affliction
which no Arab house will escape, and then a Truce between you and Banū Al-Asfar who will betray you and
attack you under eighty flags. Under each flag will be twelve thousand soldiers.

the Arabs. Their slain will be in hell. The tongue will be more severe in this than the blow of the sword."
(Tirmīidhi, IbnMājah)
There is evidence that the present ‘Arab Spring’ which commenced more than one year ago, like the one which
preceded it one hundred years before, was Judeo-Christian-European crafted, and is meant to prepare the way
for an Arab slaughter which will facilitate the imposition of Israeli political and economic dominion over the
Arabs.
It is almost certain that Zionists will soon wage biological war against the Arabs (on Dajjāl’s behalf) as
prophesied by the Prophet, with which to bring about a substantial reduction in the population of the Arab
world.
There are several Ahadīth which inform us that neither plague nor Dajjāl can enter Makkah and Madinah:

Abu Huraira(radiallahu 'anhu) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There are angels at
the entrances of Madinah. Neither plagues nor Dajjāl shall enter it.
(Sahīh Bukhārī)
Our view, and Allah Knows best, is that this prophecy pertains to the biological attack on the Arabs that would
be launched on Dajjāl’s behalf (hence the juxtaposition of plague with Dajjāl in the Hadīth). Hence our
conclusion is that Makkah and Madinah are destined to dramatically recover center-stage in Islamic and world
affairs when the two cities provide dramatic and providential safety at that time when the biological attack on the
Arabs is launched.
But Madinah, the university town with the purest expression of Saudi-Wahhabi Islam, is destined to play an
even greater and more dramatic role in history, - a role that will be profoundly embarrassing for the Saudi-
Wahhabi expression of Islam.
Madinah will eclipse Makkah at center-stage
It is not at all difficult for us to anticipate large-scale movement of Arabs to Makkah and Madinah as soon as
Israel commences her great wars. One can even expect that this essay might possibly provoke that movement
to commence even before the wars begin. The Arabs will do so since they will be in a state of expectation of the
epidemics that are prophesied to decimate or wipe out the Arabs. When Makkah and Madinah are over-
flowing with Arabs seeking safety and refuge from death by plague, that mass gathering will surely provoke a
spontaneous and volatile combustion between those with the chemical of faith in Islam in their hearts on the one
hand, and those who serve Dajjāl on the other.
It is easy today to recognize those Arabs who serve Dajjāl since they are the ones who are shamelessly and
sinfully supported the recent unjust NATO overthrow of the Libyan regime, and are now beating drums in
support of an equally unjust Israeli/Turkish/NATO war on Syria and on Iran. They have forgotten that the
Qur’an has prohibited Muslims from being friends and allies of a Judeo-Christian alliance (al-Maida 5:51) and
has also prohibited unjust war while enjoining absolute justice!
The spontaneous combustion in Madinah is destined to lead to dramatic events with a potential to profoundly
embarrass that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam. The Prophet prophesied the following:

in rows. Then, Madinah will quake with its people three times, and then Allah will bring out of it every kāfir and
munāfiq (hypocrite).

not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in
rows. Dajjāl will camp at a salty barren area, then Madinah will shake three times, and then every kāfir and
munāfiq (hypocrite) will come out of it to join him. In a similar narration with the same final chain of transmission,
he says instead: He shall come to the barren salty area of Juruf and set up his camp. And he also said: And then
every male and female hypocrite will come out to join him.

Abu Huraira said: The Messenger of Allah sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam said: The False Messiah will come from the
east, intending to go to Medina, until he encamps behind Uhud. Then, angels will divert his face (his direction)
toward Shām (The North, i.e., Greater Syria), and there he dies.
(Sahīh Muslim)
These Ahadīth indicate that Israel will eventually attack the Hijāz. At that time Dajjāl will be the leader of the
Jewish State. Perhaps the Israeli forces will launch that attack because of the belief that Madinah is a part of the
Holy Land (since the Jews lived in Madina for a long time).
When Israeli forces land outside Madinah, every supporter of the Zionists will leave the city to join the Israelis.
The three times that Madinah will shake (resulting in the city being emptied of all Kuffāror disbelievers and
Munāfiqūn or hypocrites) could, perhaps, represent three revolutionary Islamic uprisings that would send
tremors around the world.
In addition of course, there is also the well-known phenomenon of ‘rats leaving a sinking ship’. But this ship
would not sink. Instead the angels would then divert the Israeli attack to Damascus and it would be at that time
that Nabi ‘Isa(‘alaihi al-Salām) the true Messiah would dramatically descend to kill Dajjāl the false Messiah.
It should please the heart of every sincere Muslim that the city of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) is
destined to play such a dramatic and strategic role in Ākhir al-Zamān when it returns to center-stage in both
International and Islamic Affairs to separate those who remain faithful to Islam from those who have become
Kuffār and Munāfiqūn while serving the Anglo-American Judeo-Christian Zionist alliance. How wonderful it
would be on that day for the world to witness the angels purifying and defending the city of the blessed Prophet
(sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) and diverting the Israeli attack to Damascus. One can only wonder how many
scholars – if any - would be left in the Saudi-controlled Islamic University of Madinah after Madinah has shaken
three times! May Allah guide and strengthen the sincere scholars of Islam in Saudi Arabia to rise up before

Madinah shakes three times. Amīn!
(This writer gratefully acknowledges the expertise of Dr Tammam ‘Adi in the translation of some of the
above Ahadīth to English. He is also indebted to his dear friend and brother, Muhammad Alamgir in
Sydney, who read the first draft of this essay and alerted him to the Ottoman connection with Dajjāl’s
plan to demolish the Khilāfah.)
