They shall ask: “When shall it be?” Say: “Perhaps it will be soon.”
The final, difficult question remains to be answered: when will the Day of Wrath come? When will Allah destroy the abomination of desolation? When will the chains of Jerusalem be broken, and its rights returned?
The answer has already been implied. When Daniel specified the period between its distress and relief, between the era of anguish and the era of blessing, he put it as forty-five years! We have already seen that he specified the time of the establishment of the abomination of desolation as the year 1967, which is what in fact occurred. Therefore, the end –or the beginning of the end- will be 1967 + 45 = 2012, or in lunar years 1387 + 45 = 1433.
This is what we hope will happen, but we do not declare it to be absolutely certain, but if the fundamentalists would like to bet with us, as Quraysh did with Abu Bakr concerning the Qur'anic prophecy concerning the Romans, then without doubt they will lose, although we cannot guarantee that it will be that exact year!
