The minor pilgrimage to Mecca, the Umrah, has already been cancelled. The Great Pilgrimage, the Hajj, scheduled for July, will likely also be shut down.
In the above video recorded years ago, the world’s leading Islamic eschatologist, Sheikh Imran Hosein, cites a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) that the Hajj would be abandoned during the End Times (akhir uz-zamaan). Sheikh Imran suggested that it would be canceled during a period of extreme geopolitical tension between Zionists and their enemies (Iran and its friends?) due to manufactured hysteria over a pandemic.
The following comments are by Sheikh Imran Hosein which he made on Mar.22, 2020
I NEVER said that the Hajj will be abandoned in 2020. That is a load of rubbish. I will soon remove this video from my You-tube channel. This way I will no longer be blamed for what others have done to misrepresent me. This video, which was recorded in a class/seminar held at the Jama Masjid, San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago in 2004 (when I had a bad cough that lasted for a long time), was not referring to today’s virus.
It is still too early for us to know what will eventually happen in the world because of this manufactured Corona-virus. If there are those who are OFFENDED because we have rebroadcast this very old lecture, we apologize to them; but it would be interesting to know why they are offended by a lecture delivered 16 years ago. (end of Sheikh’s comments)
Here’s Sheikh’s vid which was recorded 16 yrs ago. (r. a. note)
