Their viewpoint gained further credence and longevity as it became enmeshed in Abbasid historiography as a cornerstone of the ideological rivalry which the Abbasids were waging against the Fatimids. For those ashraf who were inclined to the Fatimids, the significance of the Fatimid sovereign as instituting the rule of the ahl al-bayt provided a kinship bond which enhanced their distinction while also gaining a platform from which they could publicly participate in servicing the Fatimid state, thus adding further lustre to their social status.
Hence they had the ability to straddle and when necessary transcend the ideological as well as ethnic demarcations that were increasingly becoming embedded in Egyptian society during this period. From the famous early rebels to the founders or eponyms of the major Islamic sects, to numerous rulers such as the Idrisids in ninth-century Morocco, the Fatimids in tenth-century Egypt, the current-day king of Jordan, the Ayatollah Khomeini or the Aga Khan ; descendants of the Prophet have played a major role throughout the history of the Islamic world.

He comes with ten thousand Holy Ones, to execute judgment upon them, and to destroy the impious, and to contend with all flesh, concerning everything that the sinners and the impious have done and wrought against Him Enoch When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will be seated on the throne of His glory, and all nations will be gathered before Him.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; And he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with vesture dipped in blood: And his name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, Clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, That with it he should smite the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron: And he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness, and wrath of Almight God. Take thee also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in One vessel, and make Bread Ezekiel Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old, behold, I do a new thing, now it shall spring forth Isaiah Verily I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the son of God, and they that hear shall live Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming, in which all they that are in the graves, shall hear his voice.
And they shall come forth; they that have done good unto the resurrection of Life, and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of death The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him, He will shew them His covenant Psalm He will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know Him not see His days? Job When the stars of heaven and the constellations there of shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine" - Isaiah Surely the Lord will do nothing but He revealeth His secrets to His servants the prophets.
The Lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord hath spoken, who can but prophecy? Amos Measure thou the time diligently Then shalt thou understand that it is the very time wherein the Highest will begin to visit the world which He made. Therefore, when there shall be seen earthquakes and uproars of people in the world, then shalt thou well understand that the Most High spake of these things from the days that were before thee The times of the Highest have plain beginnings in wonders and powerful works, and endings in effects and signs He answered them, When it is evening where the Sun sets in the West you say, it will be fair weather for the sky is red, and in the morning where the Sun rises in the East , it will be stormy for the sky is RED and lowering descending Hypocrites, ye know how to interpret the face of heaven but ye cannot discern the sign of the times Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the First Resurrection: on such the Second death the death of the body itself hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years Revelation Ephesians Muhammad himself said: "Happiness is for the one who will attend the Qa'im of my Ahl'ul-Bayt and will follow him before his rise.
This person will love his Qa'im's lovers and hate his enemies, and will accept the leadership of the A'immah from before his advent. These ones are my friends, and are the most sincere members of my Ummah whom I honor very much.

For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of Man beMatthew No man knoweth the son but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. JOHN For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? MARK Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! LUKE He is returning with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the tribes on the earth will mourn because of him. This will certainly come to pass! He was dressed in a robe extending down to his feet and he wore a wide golden belt around his chest.
His head and hair were as white as wool, even as white as snow, and his eyes were like a fiery flame. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword extended out of his mouth.
His face shone like the sun shining at full strength.. I am the first and the last, and the one who lives! I was dead, but look, now I am alive — forever and ever — and I hold the keys of death and of Hades! Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lamp stands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lamp stands are the seven churches. However, hold on to what you have until I come. And to the one who conquers and who continues in my deeds until the end, I will give him authority over the nations — he will rule them with an iron rod and like clay jars he will break them to pieces, just as I have received the right to rule from my Father — and I will give him the morning star.
The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, but you have obeyed my word and have not denied my name. I am going to make those people from the synagogue of Satan — who say they are Jews yet are not, but are lying — Look, I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Because you have kept my admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have so that no one can take away your crown. The one who conquers I will make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never depart from it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God the new Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven from my God , and my new name as well.
So be earnest and repent! I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and I will grant the one who conquers permission to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. The Amazing Scene in Heaven , After these things I looked, and there was a door standing open in heaven! And the one seated on it was like jasper and carnelian in appearance, and a rainbow looking like it was made of emerald encircled the throne.
In a circle around the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on those thrones were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white clothing and had golden crowns on their heads. From the throne came out flashes of lightning and roaring and crashes of thunder. Seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God, were burning in front of the throne and in front of the throne was something like a sea of glass, like crystal.
In the middle of the throne and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. Each one of the four living creatures had six wings and was full of eyes all around and inside. The one who rode it had a bow, and he was given a crown, and as a conqueror he rode out to conquer. The nations were enraged, but your wrath has come, and the time has come for the dead to be judged, and the time has come to give to your servants, the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints and to those who revere your name, both small and great, and the time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth.
And there were flashes of lightning, roaring, crashes of thunder, an earthquake, and a great hailstorm. She was pregnant and was screaming in labor pains, struggling to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: a huge red dragon that had seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadem crowns.
Then the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. So the woman gave birth to a son, a male child, who is going to rule over all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was suddenly caught up to God and to his throne, and she fled into the wilderness where a place had been prepared for her by God, so she could be taken care of for 1, days. Babylon is Destroyed , After these things I saw another angel, who possessed great authority, coming down out of heaven, and the earth was lit up by his radiance.
She has become a lair for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detested beast. For all the nations have fallen from the wine of her immoral passion, and the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have gotten rich from the power of her sensual behavior.
Repay her the same way she repaid others; pay her back double corresponding to her deeds. In the cup she mixed, mix double the amount for her. They will stand a long way off. For in a single hour your doom has come! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, because his judgments are true and just.
For e has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and has avenged the blood of his servants poured out by her own hands! His eyes are like a fiery flame and there are many diadem crowns on his head. He has a name written that no one knows except himself. He is dressed in clothing dipped in blood, and he is called the Word of God. The armies that are in heaven, dressed in white, clean, fine linen, were following him on white horses.
He will rule them with an iron rod, and he stomps the winepress of the furious wrath of God, the All-Powerful. Now the beast was seized, and along with him the false prophet who had performed the signs on his behalf — signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulfur. The others The Thousand Year Reign Then I saw an angel descending from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a huge chain.
The angel then threw him into the abyss and locked and sealed it so that he could not deceive the nations until the one thousand years were finished. After these things he must be released for a brief period of time. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. These had not worshiped the beast or his image and had refused to receive his mark on their forehead or hand. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were finished.
This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who takes part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. So the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds.
The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. To the one who is thirsty I will give water free of charge from the spring of the water of life. The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son. But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur.
That is the second death. I am coming soon, and my reward is with me to pay each one according to what he has done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end! He will bring succor to humanity. He will take out the hidden wealth from the breast of the earth and will distribute it equitably amongst the needy deserving. He will teach you simple living and high thinking. He will make you understand that virtue is a state of character which is always a mean between the two extremes, and which is based upon equity and justice. He will control over these resources of science and supreme knowledge.
His control over these resources will be complete. He will know how supreme they are and how carefully they will have to be used. His mind will be free from desires of bringing harm and injury to humanity. Such knowledge to him will be like the property, which was wrongly possessed by others and for which he was waiting for the permission to repossess and use. He, in the beginning, will be like a poor stranger unknown and Islam then will be in the hopeless and helpless plight of an exhausted camel that has laid down its head and is wagging its tail.
With such a start he will establish an empire of God in this world. And when the earth is stretched out and casts forth what is in it and becomes empty of its mysteries , and obeys its Lord and it must. O man! Surely you must strive to attain to your Lord, a hard striving until you meet Him. Then as to him who is given his book in his Right Hand, He shall be reckoned with an easy reckoning Sura His work is nothing but to fight, and no one will be spared. He will not be afraid of any blame in the execution of his duty. He will be called Mahdi because he will guide people to the thing from which they have been separated.
He will be called Qa'im because he will be commanded to establish the truth. How do you deny Allah and you were dead and He gave you life? Again He will cause you to die and again bring you to life, then you shall be brought back to Him May Allah help us all to recognize him when he rises, Muhammad himself said: "Happiness is for the one who will attend the Qa'im of my Ahl'ul-Bayt and will follow him before his rise.
Islam has been a Sword in the Hand of Allah, an instrument of judgment. Islam is ultimately a judgment upon itself. Islam is the way of Peace for those who know the ways of Peace. In due time another Buddha will arise in the world, a Holy One He will reveal to you the same eternal truths, which I have taught you He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect and pure, such as I now proclaim.

Let the Visioned One describe him. In this auspicious eon, three leaders there have been: Kakusandha, Konagaamana, and the leader Kassapa too.
I am now the perfect Buddha; and there will be Maitreya too before this same auspicious eon runs to the end of its years. A man whose spirit shines brightly, a man whose mind is completely unified, a man whose virtue excels everyone-such a man will truly appear in this world.
When he preaches precious laws, all the people will totally be satisfied, as the thirsty drink sweet drops of rain from heaven. And each and every one will attain the path of liberation from struggles. And Ananda, holding back his tears, said to the Buddha: 'Who will teach us when you are gone?
In the right time, another Buddha will arise in the world, a Holy One, a Supremely Enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, Knowing the Truth, an incomparable leader of men, a Master of Spirit and mortals. He will He will preach his Dharma, Glorious in its Origin, Glorious in the Middle, and Glorious in its end, in the Spirit as well as the letter. Mahaparinirvana Sutra V, Verses He, by himself, will thoroughly know and see, as it were face to face, this universe, with Its worlds of the spirits, Its Brahmas and Its Maras, and Its world of recluses and Brahmins, of princes and peoples, even as I now, by myself, thoroughly know and see them.
We refered Sanskrit Shloka from Purana. If we take into account the Vishnu was the Avtar in Satya Age and Author of Vishnu Puran were aware that future mistake may crop up about the calculation of various ages and particularly about Kal Yuga as it is one of the darkest Age. Earlier Authors have miscalculated age of satya,Treta,Dwapara and kali on the basis of Deva Yuga which they calculated by Multiplying Deva Yuga into Human Years by in Ratio of , again not Interpretaing as per maths law in Sanskrit.

Jesus and Christ were two different Powers came in two different time,Christ was born long before Jesus. New Testament Bible do not mentioned Christ and only says about Jesus although Christ were born about the time of Noah ark Years before. Most of Christians do not know this fact,but this is the Truth. Jesus was the carpenter by Profession and has come to live in Kashmir in india and lived there for many years. This was the time period which has not been mentioned in the bible and often known as the lost year of Jesus, he travelled widely in different parts of world and lived many years in Kashmir valley,there are still one tribes of Jews still leaving in Kashmir they are among the one of lost tribes of Jews.
He will be born as in the family of an By his irresistible might he will destroy all the barbarians and thieves, and all whose minds are devoted to iniquity. He will then re-establish righteousness upon earth; and the minds of those who live at the end of the Kali age shall be awakened, and shall be as clear as crystal.

They like constant confrontation and are fond of argument, discontent, fond of jewellery, hair and style. Vishnu Purana, I, Verses Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion--at that time I descend Myself. Kalki avatar is the last of the ten major incarnations of Lord Vishnu, who will appear in the end of this Kali Yuga to protect religious principles.

In , Swami Rama established the Institute, which now has branches throughout the nation and in Europe and India. In light of this indispensable need, it is relevant to raise the question of whether human-made law is capable of administering human society justly. This is what is called the dialectic interpretation of nature. Aslam composed lines about Muhammad b. Some of these problems were tackled by both medieval scientists of the Islamic world and scholars of Islamic law. Sometimes they would ask: "From which family would the awaited Mahdi arise?

Deception and cult of false saints,Gurus common in india and west. Many Gurus in india have been charged with rape and collecting huge some of money from their devotee ,to name fews swami ram of india was charged with the rape of foreign devotee. There are numerous abuses and scandals that have emerged over the past two decades.
In the December Yoga Journal magazine, Journalist Katherine Webster wrote about a long history of sexual harassment, outright sexual assault, financial exploitation, psychological manipulation, and a host of coercive practices on the part of Swami Rama, the founder of the Himalayan Institute, which continue to teach, meditation, yoga, spirituality, and holistic health in the ayurvedic tradition. In , however, jurors determined that the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, N.
Webster's article reveals that this woman was only one of many assaulted by the Swami, although most cases were not litigated. Not too farfetched of an image, right? But why does this yoga-drug association exist? These ancient goals we define in the metaphor of the present — turn on, tune in, drop out. Leary Ian C. Unfortunately, there is some mystery surrounding its founder, Swami Rama, and possible connection with drug abuse and sexual indecency. However, the Institute has moved on from these negative allegations in order to maintain its important status in the historic yogic tradition.
Developed in India 5, years ago, it was created to achieve self-transcendence, or enlightenment, through physical, mental, and spiritual health. When Swami Vivekananda, an Indian yogi, presented a lecture on yoga in Chicago in the s, America was captivated. Bernard imbued the once Has the historical meaning of yoga been lost on its journey to America?
Fortunately, it has not. But it does not only serve local residents; the vedicbooks. Swami Rama founded the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale to serve as a bridge between his Eastern upbringing and Western technology and opportunities. Rama was born in a small village called Toli in the Himalayas in He grew up practicing yoga and studying with the Himalayan Masters, saints, and sages.
In the s, he was encouraged by. Modern man has reached the moon! The West is advanced in technology, and the East in spirituality. Why not build a bridge of understanding? That the West has much to share with the East is beyond doubt — but the East also has something to contribute to the West. The flower of the West without the fragrance of the East is a flower in vain. In , Swami Rama established the Institute, which now has branches throughout the nation and in Europe and India. He has been compared to a saint by some, but his record is tainted due to some very serious allegations.
Unfortunately, Swami Rama may not have been so different from drug advocate Timothy Leary and sexually offensive Pierre Bernard. However, no legal action was immediately taken to confirm or deny these claims. But the courts did eventually get involved. These fake Gurus charges huge amount of money from their devotes and claims to Initiate their disciple by giving them darshan of Astral light body in They cannot lead their devotes beyond astral plane into casual world and thus cannot complete the journey of soul in order to close the door of rebirth and soul is still subject to birth and death.
India had been the land of Great Seer and saints and had long tradition of True saints at any time on Earth. Appointment of any saint on earth is done by Cosmic Government to bring back the lost sheep to the kingdom of God. A person may be saint and fully competent as soul but cannot act as Satguru on earth and heaven,it has to be appointed by GOD power to do certain Job for certain time. The Catholic sex abuse cases are a series of allegations, investigations, trials and convictions of child sexual abusecrimes committed by Catholic priests, nuns and members of Roman Catholic orders against children as young as three years old with the majority between the ages of 11 and These cases include anal and oral penetration and have resulted in criminal prosecutions of the abusers and civil lawsuits against the church's dioceses and parishes.
Many of the cases span several decades and are brought forward years after the abuse occurred. Cases have also been brought against members of the Catholic hierarchy who did not report sex abuse allegations to the legal authorities. It has been shown they deliberately moved sexually abusive priests to other parishes where the abuse sometimes continued. This has led to a number of fraud cases where the Church has been accused of misleading victims by deliberately relocating priests accused of abuse instead of removing them from their positions.
In the United States, which has been the lead focus of much of the scandals and subsequent reforms, BishopAccountability. Eight Catholic dioceses have declared bankruptcy due to sex abuse cases from Although bishops had been sending sexually abusive priests to facilities such as those operated by the Servants of the Paraclete since the s, there was scant public discussion of the problem until the mids. Even then, most of the discussion was held amongst the Catholic hierarchy with little or no coverage in the media.
A public discussion of sexual abuse of minors by priests took place at a meeting sponsored by the National Association for Pastoral Renewal held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in , to which all U. Catholic bishops were invited. Various local and regional discussions of the problem were held by Catholic bishops in later years.
However, it was not until the s that discussion of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clerics began to be covered as a phenomenon in the news media of the United States. According to the Catholic News Service public awareness of the sexual abuse of children in the United States and Canada emerged in the late s and the s as an outgrowth of the growing awareness of physical abuse of children.
The case received widespread media coverage. In September , the National Catholic Reporter published an article on the topic.
