The other day I read on the "answering-islam" website that Mohammed
prophesied that the world would come to an end 500 years after his
death.
I can't find the article now, but I remember that they referenced the
Hadiths. The article said something about how Mohammed held up his fingers.
They said that this represented that the world would end in 1/2 of a thousand
years, or 500 years. The answering-islam team said that this was an example
of a false prophecy from Mohammed.

I have noticed in the past the the Christian "Answering Islam" team use very doubtful Islamic resources that have Christian and Jewish origins.  They use the sources that the Muslims have refused to accept, and they claim that they used authentic Islamic resources.

Allah Almighty warned the Muslims 1400 years ago from the Jews and Christians lies by Saying: 

"A section of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) say:  Believe in the morning what is revealed to the believers (Muslims), but reject it at the end of the day; perchance they may (themselves) turn back (from Islam).  (The Noble Quran, Noble Verse 3:72)"

I would like to expose the Christian "Answering Islam" team's lie by presenting some of the Noble Verses from the Noble Quran, and some of the Hadiths (Sayings) of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him from authentic Islamic resources that prove that no one but Allah Almighty knows when the Hour will come:

 

From the Noble Quran:

"They ask thee about the (final) Hour - when will be its appointed time? Say: 'The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone): None but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only, all of a sudden will it come to you.' They ask thee as if thou Wert eager in search thereof: Say: 'The knowledge thereof is with God (alone), but most men know not.'  (The Noble Quran, 7:187)"

"Verily the Hour is coming - My design is to keep it hidden - for every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its Endeavour.  (The Noble Quran, 20:15)"

"They say: 'When will this promise come to pass, if ye are telling the truth?' If only the Unbelievers knew (the time) when they will not be able to ward off the fire from their faces, nor yet from their backs, and (when) no help can reach them! Nay, it may come to them all of a sudden and confound them: no power will they have then to avert it, nor will they (then) get respite.  (The Noble Quran, 21:38-40)"

"Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with God (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with God is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).  (The Noble Quran, 31:34)"

"Men ask thee concerning the Hour: Say, 'The knowledge thereof is with God (alone)': and what will make thee understand?- perchance the Hour is nigh!  (The Noble Quran, 33:63)"

"The Unbelievers say, 'Never to us will come the Hour': Say, 'Nay! but most surely, by my Lord, it will come upon you;- by Him Who knows the unseen,- from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens or on earth: Nor is there anything less than that, or greater, but is in the Record Perspicuous:'  (The Noble Quran, 34:3)" 

"And blessed is He to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all between them: with Him is the Knowledge of the Hour (of Judgment): and to Him shall ye be brought back.  (The Noble Quran, 43:85)"

"Say: 'I know not whether the (Punishment) which ye are promised is near, or whether my Lord will appoint for it a distant term.  (The Noble Quran, 72:25)"

 

From the Hadiths (Sayings of Muhammad):

Narrated Abu Huraira: "One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, 'What is faith?' Allah's Apostle replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection.' Then he further asked, 'What is Islam?' Allah's Apostle replied, 'To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan.' Then he further asked, 'What is Ihsan (perfection)?' Allah's Apostle replied, 'To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you.' Then he further asked, 'When will the Hour be established?' Allah's Apostle replied, 'The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents. 

1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master. 

2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah.' 

The Prophet then recited: 'Verily, with Allah (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour--.' (31. 34) Then that man (Gabriel) left and the Prophet asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." Abu 'Abdullah said: He (the Prophet) considered all that as a part of faith.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Belief, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 47)"

Regarding Sign #2, in every major city we have today, you would see high buildings and towers built by men.

Narrated Abu Huraira: "While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, 'When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?' Allah's Apostle continued his talk, so some people said that Allah's Apostle had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Allah's Apostle had not heard it. When the Prophet finished his speech, he said, 'Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?' The Bedouin said, 'I am here, O Allah's Apostle.' Then the Prophet said, 'When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).' The Bedouin said, 'How will that be lost?' The Prophet said, 'When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)'  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Knowledge, Volume 1, Book 3, Number 56)"

The world's corrupted governments is a fulfillment for this Prophecy!  Governments cause for nations to fight with each others and lose millions of innocent lives for political gains. 

Narrated Anas: "Allah's Apostle said, 'From among the portents of the Hour are (the following): 

1. Religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of Religious learned men). 

2. (Religious) ignorance will prevail. 

3. Drinking of Alcoholic drinks (will be very common). 

4. There will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse.'   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Knowledge, Volume 1, Book 3, Number 80)"

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said, 'The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until (religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious learned men), earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, afflictions will appear, murders will increase and money will overflow amongst you.'   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Invoking Allah for Rain (Istisqaa), Volume 2, Book 17, Number 146)"

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said, 'The Hour will not be established till you fight with people wearing shoes made of hair. And the Hour will not be established till you fight with people whose faces look like shields coated with leather.' (Abu Huraira added, 'They will be) small-eyed, flat nosed, and their faces will look like shields coated with leather.')  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad), Volume 4, Book 52, Number 180)"

It appears that this will be the army of Gog and Magog.

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said, 'The Hour will not be established till there is a war between two groups among whom there will be a great number of casualties, though the claims (or religion) of both of them will be one and the same. And the Hour will not be established till there appear about thirty liars, all of whom will be claiming to be the messengers of Allah.'  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 806)"

Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, 'The Hour will not be established till two (huge) groups fight against each other, their claim (i.e, religion) being one and the same.'  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Dealing with Apostates, Volume 9, Book 84, Number 69)"

World Wars I and II happened mostly among Christians. They were of the same religion, and their battles were great and their casualties were also great.

Narrated Anas: "I will narrate to you a Hadith I heard from Allah's Apostle and none other than I will tell you of it. I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'From among the portents of the Hour are the following: Religious knowledge will be taken away; General ignorance (in religious matters) will increase; illegal Sexual intercourse will prevail: Drinking of alcoholic drinks will prevail. Men will decrease in number, and women will increase in number, so much so that fifty women will be looked after by one man.'  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Wedlock, Marriage (Nikaah), Volume 7, Book 62, Number 158)"

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: "The Last Hour will not come till wealth is abundant and overflowing, so much so that the owner of the property will think as to who will accept Sadaqa from him, and a person would be called to accept Sadaqa and he would say: I do not need it.   (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Zakat (Kitab Al-Zakat), Book 005, Number 2209)"

As we clearly see from the above Sayings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, no one, including our Prophet, but Allah Almighty knows when the Day of Judgement will come.

 

Even Jesus peace be upon him didn't know when the Day of Judgement will come:

It is quite ironic that Christians believe in Jesus as the Creator of the Universe, when he himself never made such claim, and the word "Trinity" which is the central faith for the Christian religion doesn't even exist in the Bible.  In fact, when Jesus peace be upon him was asked about when the Day of Judgement will come, he said he didn't know:

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 24:36)"

But, Jesus later made a false Prophecy about the timing of the Hour in Mark 13, Luke 9:23-27 and Revelation 3:11.
