at time we are living in according to the Hadith?
Who is Imam Mehdi?
When will he come or appear?
What has our beloved Prophet (S.A.W) predicted about “Ghazwa-e-Hind”?
Who is “Dajjal”?
Will he born or he already exist? When will he appear?
What powers will he posses?
How much time he rule the world?
This book is a thorough study of current scenario in the light of Hadiths which hopefully answer these questions and many more. Mufti Abu Lubaba does not require any introduction as he is already well known to have a very strong grip on the subject.
