What is the appearance of Dukhan [smoke] in the End Times?
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated March 13th, 2014
It is important to be aware that all these incidents are supposed to happen in the End Times and be patient and joyful knowing that good days are close at hand.
The Mahdi system, the appearance of Jesus, the appearance of Dabbat-al Ard, the appearance of the Dukhan [smoke], these are all incidents that took place in our century. The Qur'an gave a subtle message about the appearance of the smoke. ‘Dukhan’ in Arabic [in addition to smoke] also means anarchy and unrest, bloodshed, turmoil. It refers to intense social movements, the high cost of living, famine and people suffering. It means unrest, terrorism, and people suffering so much that they won’t be able to discern each other anymore. In addition to its first meaning, which is ‘smoke’ that we are all familiar with, these are the other meanings of the word. Therefore, this dukhan appears in the End Times. After a while the smoke will clear out, everything will be visible, but everyone should be patient insha’ Allah.
