http://www.imranhosein.org/media/books/j_in_q.pdf PREFACE "Since the eminent psychologist, Professor Malik Badri wrote his Foreword to the 2nd edition of this book, during Ramadhan 1423 (November 2002), more momentous events have taken place. Notably we have witnessed the invasion of Iraq, in the heartland of the Muslim world and historical capital of the Abbasid Caliphate. Evidence continues to be made public indicating that the reasons for this illegal invasion were largely mere fabrications and lies: no Weapons of Mass Destruction; no link with Al-Qaeda, … and now no democracy with elected representatives as promised, but an American imperial occupation of a formerly independent Muslim country. However the occupation has exhilarated the Israeli Zionists, since they have stabilised their borders and prepared for the next phase of the softening up of Iraq for eventual Israeli domination through its proxy, the US, who plan to build permanent military bases on Iraqi soil. At the same time, the International Financiers, the US military-industrial complex, and other capitalist establishment groups are happily being fed with gigantic development contracts. Meanwhile the US has a free guzzle of Iraq’s oil resources, soon to be placed in hock to pay off mountainous debts caused by a planned usurious approach (may Allah prevent it) to the rebuilding of Iraq’s infrastructure, intentionally destroyed by the invading forces. Their objective now is to get Iraq into a grinding national pattern of debt that will lock it into the hidden control of the International Financiers, as has happened to another successfully Israeli-dominated Muslim state, modern Turkey. Developments in the World today show more clearly than ever that events and declared stratagems of certain groups are bringing the world into overlap with the predictions contained in the ahaadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (p.b.u.h), regarding the end period of the World. The present and the predicted are merging together as one, in what is becoming an ever clearer pattern for discerning minds, that we are all, willingly or unwillingly, part of Allah’s Divine Plan for the Final Scene currently “showing” before our very eyes here on earth. As Sheikh Imran has stated, this book could not have been written until this era, since it is only over the past few years that the concealed plans of the Jews have come so clearly into view that few can doubt that there is a Jewish plan for world domination. As Henry Ford, the father of the modern automobile, commented in 1921 about the amazing “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, whose veracity has been challenged by the Jews, “that they fit in with what is going on…They have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit now.” Such comments would be even more fitting today. Oppression against world humanity, with the main focus on Muslims…in Palestine, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kashmir, Albania and now the Arab heartland, has been building Preface to “Jerusalem in the Qur’an”, and is now spreading to such an extent, that one can be confident that Muslims are the main target. The positioning of the US military on Iraqi Muslim soil is intended to consolidate the US-Israeli position in their campaign against Muslims and Muslim States. Unfortunately, the type of uncoordinated response from some oppressed Muslims involving, in too many cases, attacks against uninvolved civilians and children not responsible for the oppression, has blurred the view of world opinion, with many turning away from the fact that the Muslims are the main targets of the oppression. In fact, such response has been used, often successfully, to demonstrate that it is the Jews, themselves, who are the victims. It is of great benefit, therefore, that Sheikh Imran Hosein’s scholarship has made it possible for the message of this age to be witnessed. Muslims and enlightened non- Muslims can only wonder, over-awed by the veracity of the Qur’an and the ahaadith in foretelling these events. Thus it is with gratitude that we turn to Sheikh Imran for his penetrating analysis of these sources and their application to present-day happenings. Thinkers can no longer be accused of falsely believing conspiracy theories of a Zionist or Jewish plot for domination of the Middle East and the world. These plans are acknowledged by US and British journalists and the Conspirators themselves (e.g. the so-called ‘neo-Cons’) in published documents (e.g. their “Plan for the New American Century”). ‘Con’ is an apt term for these ‘plotters’ since they weave their web with lies and deceit. Sheikh Imran points out in masterful fashion, that Israel is just using the US and may eventually bring about its downfall, most probably by a strike on the international standing of the US paper dollar, which will shatter confidence in the national currency reserves of countries, and in international share markets. The international banking system will then come more and more under control of the International Financiers and their cohorts. The breadth and depth of Sheikh Imran’s analysis is shown in the elucidation of the following key issues: --> How the Jews themselves are deceiving and being themselves willingly deceived into believing that their ‘return’ to the Holy Land is part of God’s favour on them, whereas His promise for the inhabitants of Palestine is for His true believing servants only --> The misguidance of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, and his followers --> The key roles of the Sephardic Jews on the one hand (descendents of Prophet Isaac, peace be upon him), and the Jews of European origin on the other --> The identity and the relationship of Gog and Magog, noted biblically and Qur’anically, in connection with the world order and future events --> The scenario of events leading up to and following the birth of the False Messiah, the Dajjaal --> Tracing the movement of Dajjaal between the historical, current (and future) superpowers, over time and in different spatial ‘dimensions’ --> Two key areas for Muslims to be aware of and avoid: (1) Usurious transactions (Riba), and (2) Support for secular government (Shirk), and --> A Plan for enlightened Muslims to prepare and work for the future to anticipate the unfolding of the predicted events." --- This book is a must read for anyone wishing to know where this world is heading, and the responsibility that rests on each Muslim.
