Barack Obama a Fulfillment of Muslim Prophecy?

Now the fun begins! Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejab has been talking about an apocalyptic Shia/Islamic scenario for several years now–predicting that ‘the Hidden Imam‘ would soon return as the end-time Mahdi that establishes Islamic rule over the entire world.

Following the election of Barack Obama, some Shities actually believe that Obama could be a possible fulfillment of an end-time Islamic prophecy.

I found the link to this at and in an article by Daniel Pipes. Here is a quote from the original article

by Amir Taheri:

According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us."

In a curious coincidence Obama’s first and second names–Barack Hussein–mean "the blessing of Hussein" in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means "he is with us," the magic formula in Majlisi’s tradition.

Mystical reasons aside, the Khomeinist establishment sees Obama’s rise as another sign of the West’s decline and the triumph of Islam. Obama’s promise to seek unconditional talks with the Islamic Republic is cited as a sign that the U.S. is ready to admit defeat. 

Response: This is crazy from a Christian perspective, but it is also scary in its implications. There are indications that Iranian leaders are exploring the possibility and may well plan accordingly. 

If there is a perception that the USA is in decline under Obama’s administration and that he is an actual sign that Islam is about to rise up and dominate, the Iranian leaders might miscalculate and bring about an actual confrontation with Israel, the United States, and the West.

Pres. Ahmadinejab has already threatened Israel’s existence on a number of occasions. The Iranians last week tested some new missiles that could reach Israel and parts of Europe. If and when they actually go nuclear–then this scenario could end up having some serious consequences indeed.

It is doubtful that the Israelis would wait to act until a nuclear missile was actually in the air headed their way. Look for a strike well before the Iranians have that capability. One can only guess what the aftermath would bring–it would not be pretty and it could be apocalyptic.   *Top      (Cross-posted at Apologetica)

  4. The cup of abomination is upon us, the false prophet “IMAM” will bring all Muslims united against Isreal and Obama is already showing signs of anti Isreal and pro Turkey!

  5. Maybe its another tall black man. I was hoping he is part of a prophesy, but so far he seems to be messing it all up. he was supposed to act for justice. He has not ended the war, and infact, he has put santions against Muslims in Iran. Maybe he was supposed to fullfill a prophesy but he gave in to the temptations and sold out. who knows.. or maybe its some other Obama.

  6. Betraying the people of America is also betrayed the people of Iran.. and maybe the whole of humanity. As of now I am watching the Obama deception and am about to cry and getting even more depressed. whats going on here? where did we go wrong? American people and as well as Iranian Shia Muslims and Palestinians .. i mean the whole of the world needed this change in American foreign policy. Which has been effecting the world so bad.. The Post of the President is a puppet post.. the franchise owner is the real owner and controlling the world… and that is the Aipac unfortunately.

  7. The Light of Truth will always Shine Bright! IF President Obama causes harm to America or the World in his attempt to bring peace on earth, then let him fry in the Lake of Fires, at the end of times. History is been written and we are all, Puppets of Destiny; for good or evil, the war we are in, today, is a Spiritual War, on earth as it is in Heaven! Just make sure you are on the right team, that is all I have to say~

  8. The white horse is Islam. The horse is white representing “peace”, but he went forth conquering, and to conquer. This describes Islam, “the religion of peace” which is actually bent on global domination.
