If you were to ask people what the Last Day refers to, most would talk about the violent catastrophic end of the world and the collective resurrection and judgement of all people – a time when the mountains will be scattered, the sky will be cleft asunder, the stars will fall and Jesus will return, bringing peace, prosperity and unity. The world will be destroyed by an angel blowing a trumpet as wild beasts, marauding cannibals and one-eyed monsters terrorize the people.

Is any of this likely to happen? How can we explain these expectations? What will the end of the world be like?

Walied Jassat explores the prophecies of the end times found in the Qur’án, hadíth and other scriptures and looks beyond their literal meaning to the symbolic and profoundly spiritual. He searches for the fulfillment of the promise of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that Jesus will return and establish peace on earth – and shares a remarkable discovery.

Especially good for our Sunni friends
I've enjoyed reading this book, both as a general reference to prophecies about the new Revelation and especially for references from the Sunni perspective.  If you have friends of Sunni background (about 85% of the Islamic world) this is the best book I've seen for them.  They can learn about the Baha'i Faith and its connections to Islamic prophecies without the additional stumbling block of the Shia/Sunni split.  The issue is briefly addressed on pgs 324-25, but is set in its proper context i.e. that a whole new Revelation is much more significant than divisions between, or within, the religions of the past.  

Many thanks to Mr. Jassat for filling this gap in Baha'i literature!
