The Killing of the Innocent
While the hadiths about the Mahdi's emergence
mention such massacres as commonplace, they
also emphasize that such massacres will
target innocent people. As we discussed
earlier, almost all of the wars today target
civilians. So, civilians and such innocent
people as children, the elderly, and women
are slaughtered. Targeting these defenseless
people in particular has resulted in more
comprehensive massacres, while the number
of people dying as a result continues to
In addition to such massacres, acts of
terror, particularly in recent years, have
resulted in the mass annihilation of people.
Since terror seeks to spread fear and horror,
the very group that such attacks often target
are innocent civilians.
Many people continue to lose their lives
in different countries as a result of terrorists
targeting shopping malls, restaurants, and
schools frequented by defenseless women,
youths, and children.
|Many countries around
the world struggle against terror perpetrated
by their own citizens or terrorist groups.
In some cases, mass graves are uncovered,
as is in the case of Bosnia, where women,
children, and the elderly were tortured.
Terror and chaotic environments target
innocent people all over the world and
are among the signs of Doomsday, upon
which everyone needs to contemplate.
