This is my second article and I am writing this in reply of all those questions that are raised on my video of “The Land of Israel and The Four Blood Moons 2014-2015”. In this account I will explain the phenomena of four blood moons how it occurs scientifically and will explain a bit history too. Secondly why this phenomenon effect Israel? And what is its significance to the land of Israel? Thirdly why I compare Muslim religious scholars with the west technology, science and research? And at last but not least I will explain the Zionism and Anti Zionism Movements also. As a researcher one must cover all the aspects of an issue and find a logical conclusion. So I have a great comprehensive agenda to deal with. But before going forward I would like to make it clear my intentions that I create research based videos and everything can’t be explained in 16 or 17 minutes. So I pass on by giving little indications and hints and left on the viewers to draw a conclusion by themselves but unfortunately sometimes my message couldn’t reached properly so now I decide to write full size research based articles too, in order to explain my thoughts and views. This will help all my readers to understand what my clear intentions are.
Before going forward I would like to quote some Quranic verses which explain and provoke us on thinking. There are many phenomena’s surrounding all around the universe. Read below:-
In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to people’s benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky – by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about in it creatures of every kind – and the varying direction of the winds, and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there are Signs for people who use their intellect. (Surat al-Baqara: 164)
Allah clearly orders us to think, but unfortunately the stress of our Muslims religious scholars and our Muslim brothers on other things which caused us now the disaster of our Muslim world. It has many reasons but I will explain latter in this article and now I quote more verses of Quran which dealt with thinking:-
It is He Who stretched out the earth and placed firmly embedded mountains and rivers in it and made two types of every kind of fruit. He covers over day with night. There are Signs in that for people who reflect.
There are Signs in that for people who reflect. In the earth there are diverse regions side by side and gardens of grapes and cultivated fields, and palm-trees sharing one root and others with individual roots, all watered with the same water. And We make some things better to eat than others. There are Signs in that for people who use their intellect. (Surat ar-Ra’d: 3-4)
Allah Says again:-
We gave Musa the Book after destroying the earlier nations, to awaken people’s hearts and as guidance and a mercy so that hopefully they would pay heed. (Surat al-Qasas: 43)
Why early nations were destroyed? Why they don’t pay heed to Allah’s guidance? Do we think as a Muslim we could even be successful while we all Muslims are failed in this world? I don’t think so but what western world is following now that they are now developed and well established states? While on the other hand Muslims are labeled as terrorists and fighting the final war of survival, look at Middle East? What is going on there? Why we always blamed western forces or Jews that they are playing games with us? They are having conspiracy against us? Why not we think that we are not following the exact message of Allah this is why we are fighting the last war of our survival. Many of my brothers and sisters will not agree with me that we are now in survival war, I invite them go search on Middle East and all Muslim World they will find out that I am right what I am saying, look at Pakistan? Fighting against Taliban , Saudi Arabia is now scared of its own so called proxy the caliphate of “Islamic State Of Iraq and Syria” also known by the Arabic acronym DAISH headed by Abu Bakr Baghdadi who claimed himself as new Khalifa. Why they are silent on Israelian aggression against Palestine? Why are they destroying the shrines of Prophets, The Companions of Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be upon Him), Ahle Bait and other Sufi Imams and Saints, These questions need to be asked and also it clears that what their intentions are? So in short all Muslim World is now having war within us and against foreign elements.
The Phenomenon of Four Blood Moons and its History:-
According to Wikipedia which says:- The Blood Moon Prophecy is an idea popularized by Christian pastors John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which states that an ongoing tetrad (a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of the end times.
The idea of a “blood moon” serving as an omen of the coming of the end times comes from the Book of Joel, where it is written “the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.”This phrase is again mentioned by Saint Peter during Pentecost, as recorded in Acts.
On April 15, 2014, there was a total lunar eclipse. It was the first of four consecutive total eclipses in a series; known as a tetrad (the remaining three eclipses will take place on October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015). It is one of eight tetrads during the 21st century AD.As with most eclipses, the moon appeared red during the April 15 eclipse. The red color is caused by Rayleigh scattering of sunlight through the Earth’s atmosphere, the same effect that causes sunsets to appear red.
According to the article of Erick Stakelbeck CBN News Correspondent :-
In the past, the rare appearance of four blood moons on these feast days has coincided with major events for Israel and the Jewish people.
In 1492, Spain expelled the Jews. Columbus also discovered America, which became a safe haven for the Jewish people.
“In each of these blood moons, you have something that begins in tragedy and ends in triumph,” Hagee explained.
For instance, in 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation.”After 2,000 years, God supernaturally brought them from 66 nations and a nation was born in a day,” Hagee noted. “That again was a supernatural something that happened following the tragedy of the Holocaust.”In 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War and recaptured Jerusalem.
“For the first time in 2,000 years, Jerusalem and the State of Israel were together again,” Hagee said.
After explaining and quoting the phenomena of four blood moons now I would like to come on Zionism and Anti Zionism.
According to the Jewish Virtual Library:-
The term “Zionism” was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum. Its general definition means the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, Zionism has come to include the movement for the development of the State of Israel and the protection of the Jewish nation in Israel through support for the Israel Defense Forces.
According to Anti Zionist source they claim:
Zionism is a movement founded by Theodor Herzl in 1896 whose goal is the return of Jews to Eretz Yisrael, or Zion, the Jewish synonym for Jerusalem and the Land of Israel.The name of “Zionism” comes from the hill Zion, the hill on which the Temple of Jerusalem was situated.Supporters of this movement are called “Zionists”.
Who Are Anti Zionists:-
Anti-Zionism is opposition to Zionism, a nationalism of Jews that supports a Jewish nation state in the territory defined as the Land of Israel. In the modern era, Anti-Zionism is broadly defined as the opposition to the idea of an establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine, the opposition to some policies of Israel and its extension, or to the modern State of Israel as defined as A Jewish and Democratic State.(Wikipedia)
I can quote many more sources but now I conclude my article on a positive note that now we all Muslims should open the way of our thinking, open the way of education and think on different phenomena’s of this universe, work hard to stand as a nation within us. Then think for entire ummah !
