When Is The World Coming To An End?


We are born into this life and we leave it one day. We cannot look into the past or the future, we cannot see when the world started and we do not know what lies ahead. Is there some end to this cycle of life we all go through? Will the world exist forever or will all life end one day? What will bring abut this end and how do we prepare for it? How do we know when the world will end? There have been many times in history that the world was predicted to end but nothing came out of it. It has happened so frequently that we no longer heed such warnings. However, the question is still stuck in the minds of many people. Can religion prepare us for the end of the world as we know it? 

Bible

Matthew 24:36-42 King James Version (KJV)

36No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,e but only the Father.37As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark.39And they were oblivious, until the flood came and swept them all away. So will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40Two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.

42Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day on which your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known in which watch of the night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.

 

Quran

They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? In what [position] are you that you should mention it? To your Lord is its finality. You are only a warner for those who fear it. It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof. Qur’an 79:42-46

“They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? Say, "Its knowledge is only with my Lord. None will reveal its time except Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except unexpectedly." They ask you as if you are familiar with it. Say, "Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most of the people do not know." Qur’an 7:187

Allah Says,'And the Trumpet will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens and
whoever is on the earth will fall dead except whom Allah wills. Then it will be blown again, and at once they will be standing, looking on.(Qur'an 39: 68-69)
