The Pivoting Point

The Sykes-Picot Agreement and the Carving Up of an Empire

 

When an octopus slithers through the sea and hunts its prey, its many appendages seem to react independently, with their own agenda, but are completely subject to the governing force of their clever brain. Some live in deep, dark waters, rising up only to feed…

Mark Sykes and George Picot felt a greed which made them hungry for land, and so they put together a plan on December 16, 1915, for the dismemberment and ingesting of the weak Ottoman Empire. This borderless land was sliced into by Sykes and Picot long before the decisive WWI was over. T. E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, described Sykes as “a bundle of prejudice and only embracing aspects of the truth.”

If threatened, the octopus propels its body and shoots out an inky fluid, darkening the waters and confusing their aggressor. They can also change colors to blend in with their surroundings or to communicate with their own kind…

For the next few years there was a shifting of loyalties. Clandestine meetings were held with the powerful, emerging Zionists of England regarding their demand for Palestine as their new “homeland.” In an act of deeding what was not theirs to give, the British signed the Balfour Declaration of 1917 which essentially gave Palestinian land to the Zionists.

The British also made promises to Makkah’s Sharif Huseyn, promising him vast lands to be put under his control, as there was not yet something called “Saudi Arabia” or “The Middle East” at this time. You see, the British needed the Arab tribes to mobilize against the Ottomans, so they used Lawrence of Arabia to support them in this, making and breaking oaths in the process. They threw black ink into the waters of truth and shape-shifted to camouflage their seedy intentions. Betrayal and chaos ensued.

Octopi descend on their prey from above using powerful suction to pull their prey into their waiting jaws…

With the Arabs hunkered down like crabs in their shell, oblivious to the “monster of the deep” that was ready to pounce on them, a sliver of history that would change the world as we know it played out.

With absolutely no consideration for the economic viability of these new borders drawn by the Sykes-Picot Agreement, or the demographics of ethnic tribes being put under one “flag,” or the natural geographical barriers already in place, the French and British descended, each tendril adhering tightly to its promised booty of land. This led to sociopolitical instability and split the Arabs, Kurds, and all other nationalities in the portioned-off area into erratic and random boundaries not of their choice.

The Sykes-Picot Agreement led to new “countries” with puppet kings and a Middle East rife with both tension and a desperate fight for nationalism. This was the beginning of a century of weak Muslim lands, eventually leading to the Minor Signs of the Day of Judgement which follow.

 

 

 

1886: History’s Whispers:

The truth is that the Statue of Liberty, purporting to be a U.S. symbol of hope for immigrants, actually began as a peasant Egyptian woman who would stand watch over the gateway to the Suez Canal. The designer was fascinated with the mammoth stone temples of Abu Simbel, which he visited in Egypt in 1855. Early models of this stature are called “Egypt Carrying the Light to Asia.” When the Pasha of Egypt, overwhelmed by the price of the work on the Suez Canal, declines Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi’s offer for the “peasant woman statue,” the designer turns to the U.S. and, after much fanfare and fundraising, Lady Liberty is unveiled in the New York harbor overlooking Ellis Island, the center for immigration to the US.

 

  

History’s Whispers

1942: Japan breaks every code the U.S. marines use in WWII in the Pacific. Twenty-nine Native American Navajos are called on to create a code with their language, which is mostly unwritten and not known by anyone but the Navajos. This code turns out to be unbreakable. Their numbers grow to 400 by 1945, and they are involved in every assault made by the U.S. against Japan from 1942 to 1945. Their initial code has 211 terms of Navajo words to represent the military situation. Toh-Dineh-ih was their word for ships, and it meant “Sea Force” in Navajo.

 

 

 

Sign #1: The birth of the Prophet ﷺ This is the first sign of the Day of Judgment

Event #1: The splitting of the moon 

Qur’an: 54:1:

“The Hour of Judgment is nigh and the moon was cleft asunder.”

Hadith:

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The moon split when we were with the Prophet, ﷺ and it became two separate pieces. The Prophet ﷺ said to us, “Bear witness. Bear witness.”

In another narration, Ibn Mas’ud said, “A piece was behind the mountain and another piece was below it.”

Event #2: Abu Lahab and his refusal to convert

Qur’an: 111: 1-5:

“May the hands of Abu Lahab (father of flames) perish, may he himself perish. His wealth avails him not, neither what he had earned. Soon will he roast in a flaming fire, and his wife, the bearer of the firewood, upon her neck a rope of twisted palm-fiber.”

Even if he had converted with his tongue and not his heart, it would have cast doubt on the very book he was trying to discredit, but he never did it, thus showing the miracle of the Qur’an and its truth.

Prediction #3: The Prophet ﷺ laying his hands on the ground and predicting where the enemies at Badr would fall.

Hadith:

Regarding the night prior to the Battle of Badr, ‘Umar b. al-Khattab said, “The Prophet ﷺ showed us where those enemies at Badr would die. He ﷺ would place his hand somewhere on the ground and say, ‘This is where so-and-so will die tomorrow, by God’s will, and this is where so-and-so will die.’ I swear by the One who sent him with

 

  

One of the 61 minor signs of the Day of Judgement covered in Volume 3

Sign #6: Widespread killing

Qur’an: 5:32:

“…We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person, unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land, it would be as if he slew the whole people…”

Hadiths:

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah, ﷺ said, “Verily, before the Hour will be an upheaval.” I said, “O Messenger of Allah ﷺ, what is the upheaval?” The Prophet ﷺ said, “Killing.” Some of the Muslims said, “O Messenger of Allah ﷺ, right now we fight many idolaters every year.” The Prophet ﷺ said, “It is not that you will fight the idolaters, but rather you will fight each other, until a man kills his neighbor, the son of his aunt, and his close relatives.” Some people said, “O Messenger of Allah ﷺ, will we be reasonable on that day?” The Prophet ﷺ said, “No, reason will be taken away from most people in that era, and insignificant people will remain who do not use their reason.”

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ﷺ as saying:

By Him in Whose Hand is my life, a time would come when the murderer would not know why he has committed the murder, and the victim would not know why he has been killed.

 

At the time of this prediction, no two Muslims had ever raised a sword against one another. Uthman’s murderers were from the Khawarij and were Muslims. Fitna and the Tartars will come from the east and caused the death of many. Widespread tribulation will come like pieces of dark night to try and wake up the disbeliever. The cure is in the first part of the Ummah, the last part of the Ummah will be afflicted.

Today we have mass murders, school shootings, and a high murder rate in cities. Villagers in Muslim countries go after one another with long sticks, mothers kill their children, husbands kill their wives, sons and daughters kill their parents, and governments kill their own people. Sadly, these instances seem to be escalating worldwide.

 

  

History’s Whispers

 1890: The Wounded Knee Massacre is perpetrated. Chief Sitting Bull is killed two weeks before by American soldiers and Native Americans decide to have a Ghost Dance to gather their forces, although dances were banned for fear of an uprising. The government finds out and sends 7,000 troops with machine guns who surround Chief Spotted Elk, racked with tuberculosis, and the 350 dancers. Wanton killing leaves 200 Native American men, women, and children dead. Twenty soldiers are later given the Congressional Medal of Honor for this travesty. This represents the end of Native American resistance and the full conquest of the West by the occupiers, the American government. In 1973, 250 Sioux Native Americans and the American Indian Movement, tired of the oppression by the government and its people, station themselves at the South Dakota Pine Ridge Reservation, site of the first Wounded Knee genocide, demanding human rights and treaty rights. After 71 days, surrounded by a massive government military operation, assistant U.S. Attorney General Kent Frizzell signs an agreement to end the siege. This doesn’t end the oppression, but it mobilizes the Native American community after receiving some changes and concessions from the government. They also begin their own Native American radio station to get the truth out.

One of the ten major signs covered:

Story - Hasan finds the Future of his Past

 

Hasan was in the makeup area of the studio where he worked as chief anchor to the largest news outlet in the United States. He had gotten world-wide acclaim with his God-given good looks, clear speech, and sadly, a deep denial of his Islam. Even he knew that he had taken that denial way too far. As he gazed into the mirror in front of him, the makeup artist was putting the finishing touches to his “news face,” which, of late, was not as fresh and young as in days gone by. This bothered him, of course, but something else was welling up inside of him and he knew he had to face it head on.

His news stories of late had been almost exclusively about greed, violence, corruption, tyranny, mass shootings, suicides, oppression, war, and a barrage of natural calamities breaking all known records. He dug deep into his “Islamic” memories and knew that these were not simply coincidental but followed an unmistakable pattern.

He had done some research to refresh his memory and, just as he thought, all of these situations were about the manifesting of the minor signs of the Day of Judgment that were spoken about by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Yes, his Prophetﷺ, an unlettered man, had predicted the manifestation of these signs in the desert over 1400 years ago.

He had also done his homework concerning the final minor sign leading to the major signs, a man called al-Mahdi, the righteous leader predicted to come at the end of time. He found that over twenty-five companions of the Prophet ﷺhad narrated hadith or sayings about this leader. Additionally, al-Mahdi was featured in over thirty-five books of Sunnah, so naturally, Hasan felt no doubt in his coming. He felt an urgency, as he knew that once this man appeared, the major signs would follow like pearls on a string. When this string broke, the final signs would fall like a bitter rain. The Mahdi would be a clear sign and a mercy from Allah to a world filled with injustice, very much like the world Hasan lived in day to day.

This had awakened a yearning in him to return home to his Islam, even though he knew it would be a death sentence for “Hasan Ali, anchor at 5.”  The flimsiness of this world was beginning to dawn on him, and its effect was seen in his reporting. He felt it necessary, as a man in a position of verbal power, to comment on these minor signs, trying to make his listeners aware of a major change to come. Mankind, he believed, was in a stage of great suffering and way past the point of no return.

He usually took a moment before going into makeup to review the stories of the day, and the lead story was so unusual that it triggered something primordial in him, like a timeless memory planted in him from eons of his soul’s existence.

Now, kings and caliphs of the Middle East came and went with death and life, but this caliph and what followed his death was textbook pre-Mahdi.

The story stated that the king of Saudi Arabia had died and that three of the sons of his and other ruling caliphs had fought over something at the Holy Ka’ba and all three were killed.

In a separate story, a man had left the city of Madinah in Saudi Arabia and had taken refuge in Makkah. Now, Hasan knew that this wasn’t news, in and of itself, but what happened afterwards was what he would call “strange occurrence #1.” Hasan was used to all the false prophets making their claims through the years, but this man was trying to run from his followers. They found him and dragged him out to the Ka’ba and swore allegiance to him between the Black Stone of the Ka’ba and the Station of Ibrahim. When those in Syria got wind of this, they sent an army against him, but here was the strange part that perked his Islamic ears forward. The army from Syria was swallowed up by the Earth, except for a few to tell the tale, between Madinah and Makkah. When the people from Syria and Iraq heard this, they immediately went to this man and gave him allegiance.

Hasan, after all of his research on the Mahdi, knew this was exactly how it was predicted. He believed in his heart of hearts that the Mahdi had come. He remembered the phrase uttered by the Prophet ﷺ, and it made his blood run cold, “Go to him to give your allegiance even if you have to crawl across ice!”

His soul was telling him to do just that…

It was going to be an interesting news night.

Hasan, a calmness in his voice that belied his true feelings, let the news of this day unfold on air almost matter-of-factly, with a lump in his throat the size of Texas. When he had finished, even the cameraman was looking at him with questioning eyes. He was just about to sign off when he looked straight into the lens, the cameraman instinctively zooming in on his face. Hasan wanted to warn the Muslims, but in a subtle way, and so he said, “If your blood runs cold when you hear this, you are not alone.”

As the camera faded to black, the phones in the studio office began ringing off the hook.  Our favorite survivalist, Mohsin, was one of the callers. This was the day he had been dreading, and now it was here…

 

Section 1: Future Flash – The Mahdi

The Mahdi, Muhammad ibn Abdullah al-Alawi al Hasani, will come at the end of time on this Earth. He will be a rightly-guided caliph from the Quraishi household of the Prophet’s ﷺ daughter, Fatima, a descendant of her son, Hasan ibn Ali. He will resemble the Prophet ﷺ in behavior, but not in looks. This merciful Mahdi is described as having a high, wide forehead, and a large, thin nose with an upward slope. Allah will inspire him and make him wise in one night to prepare him for the task ahead. He will be sent at a time when the Earth will be filled with injustice and oppression, and he will hold sway with the multitudes and take power. He will be assisted by a brave man called Mansur from the east and his army will come under the black flag of Islam, paving the way for the Mahdi’s rule to spread. At first, the Quraysh will send an army from the tribe of Kalb to try and defeat him, but they will be defeated instead. This will be known as the Battle of Kalb.

In the Mahdi’s time – most say for seven years – there will be peace, prosperity, and abundant crops, as Allah will grant him rain to produce vegetation, wealth untold, and strong rulers. Islam will be well-established in the land. He may be the one that the Prophet ﷺ spoke of when he said that there would be a ruler at the end of time who would scoop up handfuls of wealth.

He will rule with the Sunnah, spread the banner of goodness, and will lead the Muslims until the Dajjal and Isa appear. When Isa descends, the Mahdi will be ready to pray fajr and will step backward, but Isa will touch his shoulder and tell him that the adhan was called for him, and Isa will give him the honor of praying behind him. The Mahdi will die, and the Muslims will then pray over him.

 

  

One section of Death and the Day of Judgement:

 

 

Hadith

It was narrated that al-Bara’ ibn ‘Azib said: (In the context of a long hadith) “So his soul is returned to his body and there come to him two angels who make him sit up and they say to him, ‘Who is your Lord?’ He says, ‘Allah.’ They say, ‘What is your religion?’ He says, ‘My religion is Islam.’ They say, ‘Who is this man who was sent among you?’ He says, ‘He is the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).’ They say, ‘What did you do?’ He says, ‘I read the Book of Allah and I believed in it.’ Then a voice calls out from heaven, ‘My slave has spoken the truth, so prepare for him a bed from Paradise and clothe him from Paradise, and open for him a gate to Paradise.’ Then there comes to him some of its fragrance, and his grave is made wide, as far as he can see. Then there comes to him a man with a handsome face and handsome clothes, and a good fragrance, who says, ‘Receive the glad tidings that will bring you joy this day.’ He says, ‘Who are you? Your face is a face which brings glad tidings.’ He says, ‘I am your righteous deeds.’ He says, ‘O Lord, hasten the Hour so that I may return to my family and my wealth.’…” 

THE GRAVE

 

THE EFFECT IS INSTANTANEOUS. THE angels swoop down, and I am slammed into my body as they lower me into the grave, and I go from a feeling of effortless being to a barren, desolate, dank existence. The fistfuls of dirt, released in a sequence of three, begin showering down. No isolation on Earth could have gotten me ready for this moment of stark aloneness. The truth is that as you age, the body sags downward almost as if the Earth is already making its claim on you, but no solitary moment in my lifetime could compare to the longing I feel now for any companionship. As the blanket of dirt above me is completed, I strain to hear the footsteps as they walk away from my grave. The stillness is deafening as I perceive a slight movement all around me. I am suddenly in the Earth’s grasp, the soil squeezing me, compressing my body, trying to mingle its essence of clay with mine. I resist, but it is futile, every part of my body feeling the pressure of the crushing caress. Just when I feel I might implode from the sheer force, I sense a lessening, and the dirt retreats to its rightful place. As I lay there reeling from the sudden release, my ears pick up a faint rustling, a swishing sound that seems to grow exponentially within moments. All at once I am roughly forced to a sitting position, face to face with a pair of immense creatures with eyes like caldrons, skin the color of a stormy sky, and teeth like the horns of a steer. They waste no time, and the one to my left begins, its voice roaring like a thunderstorm, “Who is your Lord?” I shrink from the sound, but find my voice and clearly articulate, “My Lord is Allah!” The other being then shrieks, “What is your religion?” I answer quickly, bolder now. “My religion is Islam!” They both screech in unison, “Who is your prophet?” The pitch is almost unbearable, but I scream back, “My prophet is Muhammed!” They fall silent with my final answer, and I discern the voice of God from above saying, “My servant has told the truth!”

Finally, these great beings are satisfied, and they rustle away as quickly as they came. I sense quiet movement around me. I look to my right to see a prayer rug so stunning and ornate it glistens from within. It speaks to me and says, “I am your prayer, and nothing can harm you from this side.” I look to the left and see a vessel filled with liquid the color of white silk, and it also speaks, “I am your fasting, and I will protect you from this side.” I feel pressure on the top of my head, and as I glance up, a Qur’an with letters of gold proclaims, “You struggled to know me, so I will shield you from above!” I lift my head slightly to see what is unfolding at my feet. My charity, a velvet drawstring bag with coins pouring out like a waterfall, assures me that nothing can reach me from that direction. I then identify the voice of God again instructing the angels to prepare bedding and clothes from Paradise, and my head is turned to the right as a window is opened in my grave to a sight more exquisite than all of Earth’s beauty combined. My joy gets the better of me then, and I exclaim, “Oh, God! Please let the Day of Judgment start now! I want to see my home and family in the Paradise!” I sigh deeply, contentedly, as the perimeter of my surroundings begins to expand until I can no longer see the edges. A sweet, fresh smell fills my space, and there appears a stunningly beautiful sister wrapped in a garment that seems attached to the skin itself, radiating brilliant colors as she glides along. “Who are you?” I ask delightedly, wondering when the blessings will end. She smiles so warmly I feel the heat penetrating to all the parts of my body that were chilled by the sunless grave. “I am your good deeds and I have come to keep you company until the Day of Standing.” I never thought I would welcome such a wait until now…
