"ISLAMIC ESCHATOLOGY: Awaiting Al-Mahdi—The Twelfth Imam and the Future of Islam" is an in-depth exploration of the profound and often misunderstood doctrines within Islamic eschatology and their global implications. This comprehensive study dives into the Islamic vision of global dominance, examining the historical, theological, and geopolitical narratives that shape this vision. The book provides an exhaustive analysis of key Islamic eschatological figures, including the Mahdi, Jesus (Isa) in Islamic theology, and the Dajjal, often likened to the Antichrist in Christian eschatology.


Through fifteen detailed chapters, the author navigates the complex terrain of Islamic end-times scenarios, contrasting them with Christian eschatological views to offer a balanced perspective. The book scrutinizes the phenomenon of radical Islam, dissecting the ideological roots and global impact of movements like Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, and Hezbollah. It explores the intricate relationship between jihadist ideology and actions, dissecting the strategic use of Shariah Law and the socio-political dynamics within Islamic societies.


The chapters on jihad, da'wah, and the role of mosques reveal a three-pronged strategy employed in the spread of radical Islamic ideologies. The book does not shy away from discussing the controversial aspects of radical Islam, including the infiltration strategies alleged to be used by radicals in Western societies.


"ISLAMIC ESCHATOLOGY" also dedicates significant focus to theological and apologetic responses, encouraging dialogue and understanding between Islamic and Christian eschatological beliefs. The final chapters offer reflections on the challenges posed by radical Islam and the role of faith, education, policy, and community in combating extremism, concluding with a call for global cooperation and a look towards a future where understanding and hope can coexist with eschatological divergences.


This book is an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of Islamic eschatology, its intersection with global politics, and the challenges posed by radical interpretations within Islam. It offers a comprehensive, scholarly, and unflinching look at one of the most pressing theological and geopolitical issues of our time.
