461 I just wanted to know if this is true or false. Thanks.

The science of astronomy states that the speed of planet Mars has been decreasing in its course toward the eastern direction in the few past weeks to the level we notice the "waver" between the east and the west.

On Wednesday the 30th of July the planet movement stopped going toward the eastern direction. Then in the months of August and September. Mars changed its course in the opposite direction to the West- and that until the end of September. Which means the sun will rise now from the west on Mars!! And this weird phenomenon of the opposite movement called "Retrograde Motion"

Most scientist state that all the planets will go through the same once at least and our planet Earth is one of them. Planet Earth will move in the opposite direction some day and the sun will rise from the west!! This might occur soon and we are unaware! The rise of the sun from the west is mentioned in the Hadith and this is the major sign of the day of judgment, most if not All, the minor signs have occurred. Wake up.

Our Beloved Messenger Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) said: "One of the signs of the hour. The sun will rise from the west, where no longer tauba (forgiveness) will be granted!! And the strange thing.

Most of our Shariah Scholars mentioned that the rise of the sun from the west occurs only once. On that day. The sun will rise from the west. Then again from the east. And continues until Allah wishes. And this is similar to what is happening to Mars. It stops, then it changes its course of direction for a short period of time. Then returns to way once it was.

Hazrat Abdullah Bin Amr (R.A.) said: (I memorized from the Messenger S.A.W) a Hadith I will never forget. I heard the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) say: The First Ayah to come the rise of the sun!! from the west) [Ahmad] And the Messenger (S.A.W) "Allah (S.W.T) places HIS hand at night to forgive his morning sinners, and places in the morning to forgive his night sinners until the sun rises from the west" [Muslim]

This piece of news is very important as it brings with it a great sign of warning and remembrance of the coming of a new WORLD - the world of the Hereafter And it is also good material for calling others to ALLAH (S.W.T). Whether for Muslims, the unwary of us or the kufar. When we show this Hadith that was told 1400 years ago about this miracle. You will see InshaALLAH, a lot will enter this beautiful religion. And the Muslims if they see this phenomenon happening in Mars.
There are number of fundamental errors on the article that is added with your question i.e. the “retrograde movement” is a scientific theory and no one yet has devised a mechanism to calculate the regression of the same to other planets. Furthermore what happens to the planet Mars is not related in any form as a sign of Qiyammah relayed to us by Islamic teachings.

Firstly let’s clarify that there is no doubt the sun will rise from the west and surely that is a sign of the end of the days (as mentioned in my quoted Hadith below). However this is when the following have already took place; the coming of Imam Mahdi Alai hi Salaam; Isa ibn Mariyam Alai hi Salaam and Jooj Majooj (Gog Mogog) (each of which has time scale attached with it) and most people will not survive to see the rise of the sun if Imam Mahdi was born today. Furthermore many other sign’s of the end of days have to occur before Imam Mahdi Alai hi Salaam’s arrival.

Secondly the scientific phenomena on Mars has no direct regressive correlation with earth neither any scientist devised a methodical approach to put time scales on the same happening to the earth neither is any elements of permanent destruction of the planet taken place (i.e. killing all living elements) as it would be with earth after sun rising from the west has taken place. Hence there is no strength to relate this to the sign’s of Qiyamah.

If the intension is to create fear in people to make them reflect on remembering favors of Allah Azawajal then try to remind them of accountability of actions, the punishments of grave and hell, which all are confirmed by authentic Islamic jurisprudence.

I would stress that the best method of Dawah (propagation) is to spread the message of love and the Seerah of our Beloved Messenger (S.A.W). Fear is emotional and temporary; while love is permanent and everlasting. Inshallah, Allah (S.W.T) will guide those that he chooses.

A Hadith mentioning the rise of the sun as the final element when the doors of tawbah are closed.

Narrated by Abu Huraira RadiAllahu Anhu that the day of judgment will not occur until the sun has risen from the west and when this happens then all those that see it will believe, and it will be at that time that this Iman will not benefit them, because they did not believe beforehand.
