"Allah will send a Black Banner from the East, and Allah will give victory to whosoever supports it. Whosoever does not support it, Allah will forsake them!
"The Black Banners will come to you from the East, their hearts are like iron.Whosoever hears about them let them go crawling — even over ice!"
"People will come from the east and will establish the government for Al Mahdi."-Hadeeth-
Most people know about the predictions of Nostradamus (a French Jew) concerning the coming of a saviour that he mentioned as "the man with the blue turban".
A Dutch writer, G. H. Brill wrote in his book The First Encyclopaedia of Islam (1913) about the rise of Islam from the East by someone he called "the standard bearer of Mahdi".
And in an ancient and famous Javanese book known as Babad Jawa, there is mention about the coming of one "Ratu Adil" (Imam Mahdi) and "Satria Piningit" (The Bearer of his Banner ) who will govern Indonesia and the Malay Archipelago with pure Islamic teachings.
Verily God in His own way has spread this dazzling news about the rise of Islam in the last era to most races and languages of the world. Almost all races have heard about it. It is exciting and elating news to all Muslims. But to the enemies of Islam, they are wary and very sad.
Regarding the hadeeth displayed at theAbout
We can see what is happening in the East beginning from the early 15th Hijriah century. We will notice the revival of Islam in the Malay world that is growing and expanding although it is being hindered and obstructed. This is a strange phenomenon.
Malays are becoming the best people in the practice of Islam and they are in the forefront of the Islamic struggle in the whole world today. It is not yet perfect, but is certainly progressing. This is no longer a secret. Although Islam was brought to the Malay Archipelago by Arab Traders more than 700 years ago, only now is Islam beginning to flourish in this region albeit in an era where the second age of ignorance has enveloped the whole world. Islam here did not die nor did it perish although it is was colonized and its enemies tried to kill it countless times.
This second revival of Islam does not follow the system or process of political elections. Islam has its own system. The Prophet choose a different system from the system of his time to bring up and to raise Islam.
He did it through dakwah (missionary work) and education using the divine revelations and the Hadith. His approach was through love, care, brotherhood and fraternity. When the hearts and minds of people are processed through divine revelations which are heartfelt and supreme, there will be an overall shift in the hearts and minds of people and of the society towards the truth and virtue that will bring about an Islamic nation followed by an Islamic Empire.
We should emulate the Companions of the Prophet who rushed to realise the promise of Allah to be the good military leader who would capture Constantinople from the Nasranis as said by the Prophet. They were not told who the good military leader was.
So they wanted to try to be him including Sayidina Abu Ayub Al Ansari who was then more than 90 years old. He advanced towards Constantinople and because he was not the promised one, he died a martyr beside the walls of the city. They were not disappointed if they failed. What is important is to fight for what Allah has promised and to gain His forgiveness and acceptance. Not trying is much worse than failing.
