بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ
وصلى الله على نبيه الكريم
Some years ago I exposed the reality of the Seventy Thousand Followers of the Antichrist. I tend to think these are Shi’ah Muslims and Turkic Muslims (the Hazara from central Afghanistan are an example of Turco-Mongol Shi’ites) who have been described as “Jews” in the Hadith because they possess certain nefarious Jewish characteristics.
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
ثُمَّ يُسَلِّطُ اللَّهُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ عَلَيْهِ ، فَيَقْتُلُونَهُ وَيَقْتُلُونَ شِيعَتَهُ، حَتَّى إِنَّ الْيَهُودِيَّ ، لَيَخْتَبِئُ تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ أَوِ الْحَجَرِ فَيَقُولُ الْحَجَرُ أَوِ الشَّجَرَةُ لِلْمُسْلِمِ : هَذَا يَهُودِيٌّ تَحْتِي فَاقْتُلْهُ
Then Allah will cause the Muslims to subdue him (Antichrist), they shall kill him and they shall kill his Shi’ah, until the Jews hide behind the trees and rocks, but the rocks and trees shall say to the Muslim “Here is a Jew under me, come and kill him”
In this Hadith, the followers of the Antichrist have been named “Shi’ah” and “Jews”. This seems to indicate that they belong to the sect known as Shi’ism and have been named Jews figuratively.
