Islam’s Self-Destructive Seed

Within the DNA of Islam is a self-destructive element: a prophecy by Mohammed in which he said that Islam will eventually be rejected by the world and would return back to where it came from. Ask your local imam, and he’ll tell you: Mohammed doesn’t lie.

Incredibly, Mohammed himself was not optimistic about his own message and the future of Islam and Muslims:

[T]he Messenger of Allah (Mohammed) observed: "Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.” [Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0271]

In this hadith, Mohammed foretold that the end of Islam would be strange just like its beginning and that it would shrink back to the limited area where it came from – – between the two mosques of Mecca and Medina.

Could that prediction by Mohammed himself be a signal of the inevitable demise of Islam?

Mohammed’s predictions of Islam crawling back like a snake to where it came from were repeated extensively in several other hadiths.

Belief returns and goes back to Medina like a snake. (Sahih Bukhari, 3.30.100.)

Muslims will be the scum and the rubbish even though their numbers may increase; the enemy will not fear Muslims anymore. This will be because the Muslims will love the world and dislike death:

Narrated Thawban:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish. Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and last enervation into your hearts. Someone asked: What is wahn (enervation). Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him): He replied: Love of the world and dislike of death. (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 37.4284.)

Muhammad’s contemporaries were the best Muslims; after three generations, the Muslims will be mainly treacherous and untrustworthy.

Narrated Imran bin Husain:
Allah's Apostle said, "The best of my followers are those living in my generation (i.e. my contemporaries). and then those who will follow the latter" Imran added, "I do not remember whether he mentioned two or three generations after his generation, then the Prophet added, 'There will come after you, people who will bear witness without being asked to do so, and will be treacherous and untrustworthy, and they will vow and never fulfill their vows, and fatness will appear among them." (Sahih Bukhari, 5.57.2)
Narrated Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "The best people are those living in my generation, and then those who will follow them, and then those who will follow the latter. Then there will come some people who will bear witness before taking oaths, and take oaths before bearing witness." (Ibrahim, a sub-narrator said, "They used to beat us for witnesses and covenants when we were still children.") (Sahih Bukhari, 5.57.3)

There will be much killing during the last days of the Muslim.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "Time will pass rapidly, good deeds will decrease, miserliness will be thrown (in the hearts of the people) afflictions will appear and there will be much 'Al-Harj." They said, "O Allah's Apostle! What is "Al-Harj?" He said, "Killing! Killing!" (Sahih Bukhari, 9.88.183.)
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Verily, Belief returns and goes back to Medina as a snake returns and goes back to its hole (when in danger). (Bukhari Volume 3.30.100)

Mohammed also predicted a large movement of apostasy out of Islam:

Muslims will diminish in number and they will go back to where they started [before Islam] (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.19.3029.)

There will be no trace of Islam in some believers. (see Sahih Bukhari, 9.84.65 below)

Could these believers, with no trace of Islam in them, be the reformers of Islam, like the well-intentioned Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, who are believing in an Islam that does not and never existed? Mohammed’s fears of large apostasy movements and envy of other religions continue:

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Yasar:
Abu Sa'id said, "... I heard the Prophet saying, 'There will appear in this nation ..... a group of people so pious apparently that you will consider your prayers inferior to their prayers, but they will recite the Quran, the teachings of which will not go beyond their throats and will go out of their religion as an arrow darts through the game, whereupon the archer may look at his arrow, its Nasl at its Risaf and its Fuqa to see whether it is blood-stained or not (i.e. they will have not even a trace of Islam in them).'" (Sahih Bukhari 9.84.65)

Since its inception, Islam has been at war with civilization. “Civilization” is considered a threat to Arabia’s identity and culture and with Islam it was the outside world that had to change and adapt to Arabia’s language, culture, religion.

Will jihadists, yearning for achieving their imaginary perfect caliphate, finally realize that such a utopia never existed and will never exist? Will they eventually grasp that their enemies are not the Mubaraks, Assads, Qaddafis, America, Israel, or past injustice, but in fact, their enemy is within, a terminal virus written in a 7th century incoherent political and legal system that still rules them today? Will Muslims from Morocco to Indonesia reject Sharia, and send it back to where it came from as their prophet predicted, to the two mosques in Mecca and Medina?

Will the world finally come to its senses, learn from the violent history of Islam, and reject it by declaring it the most evil totalitarian ideology created by man? Will the world learn that Islam is but a snake, a viper, behind the title of religion? Will the leaders of the free world find the courage to unite in a march to save the world and say loud and clear, “Islam go back to Mecca, like your prophet predicted”? And then will they declare, “There is no place for you in our part of the world, and the world we want our children to live in”?

What are Muslim leaders waiting for to declare the truth? Will they finally admit they cannot rule any longer under the barbarian laws of Sharia that are enshrined in all Islamic constitutions? Will we ever see the day when old great nations such as Egypt and Persia (Iran), who were conquered by Arabs and never saw their glory days again, stand side by side with Western nations to send Islam back to Mecca?

Will the world finally unite against Islamic terror for the sake of our children and the millions of men and women who lost their lives to bring freedom to our world to end Islam’s desperate need for expansion?

Like a Ponzi scheme, Islam must expand to survive. In that sense, Islam works only when more and more people join its pyramid. As long as the supply of new Muslim believers can empower the pyramid and convince the other suckers, the naïve Muslim followers, that they are right, it can survive.

The Ponzi scheme is currently still effective as it expands in the West without restriction or conditions. This expansion has given Islam a one-sided golden opportunity to grow in Europe, America, and Australia. Tragically, and to its ultimate demise, the West has extended a life-line to a dying, evil ideology, one that has already predicted its own death. Now it will live a little longer, and because of that, it will continue to destroy others.

When will the West respect Mohammed’s prophecy, and send Islam back down the snake hole, the one in Mecca?
