Muslim religious scholars in Pakistan have rejected prophecies of the ending of the world this December 21, by calling it "baseless". The scholars criticised the role of media for projecting such "flawed and unauthenticated" predictions, which have created terror among the general public, reports The News. Muhammad Adam Khan, a senior cleric at a local mosque said that no one but Allah has the knowledge of doomsday. "Whosoever has been professing about these events has no bases for such claims. While whatever we Muslim tell, we have basis and those were found in Quran and Hadith," he said. Qari Muhammad Hanif Jalandhri, Nazim-i-Aala Wifaq-ul-Madaris Pakistan, said that the prediction of doomsday on December 21 is a "great lie". "No one knows about the exact date and time of doomsday.
Allah has kept this knowledge secret and exclusive to his own person. So any such prediction would be baseless and futile, he also said. Our Prophet Mohammad has told us about the warning signs before doomsday and several things have yet to occur," he said. Mufti Nasir Mehmood, another cleric at a local mosque said that a Muslim should deny any such rumour when he hears about it. "Allah almighty gave knowledge to our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) more than any other person in the world. If anyone could have the capacity to tell the exact date and time of doomsday, it must have been our Prophet Mohammad(PBUH). When Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) has clearly said that he doesn''t know about the date and time of doomsday then anyone whosoever may be predicting is spreading falsehood," Mufti Nasir said, adding that there were also several warning signs that have to appear before doomsday and these warning sings have yet to appear.
