In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Astrology – Fore-teller – UNSEEN
Muslim cannot be Astrologer or Fortuneteller:
O ye who believe! Strong Drink (Intoxicants), gambling, idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed. [Al_Quraan_005.090]
Say (O Muhammad (SAW), to the disbelievers): I say not unto you (that) I possess the treasures of Allah, nor that I have knowledge of the Unseen; and I say not unto you: Lo! I am an angel. I follow only that which is inspired in me. Say: Are the blind man and the seer equal? Will ye not then take thought? [Al_Quraan_006.050]
Say (O Muhammad (SAW): I have no power over any good or harm to my self except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the Unseen, I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me: I am but a Warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have Faith. [Al_Quraan_007.188]
This day, I have Perfected your Religion for you and Completed my Favor unto you, and have chosen for you as Religion Al-Islaam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [Al_Quraan_005.003]
(Allah’s Favor has already been completed on us, so no new miracle may happen)
Some people asked Allah's Apostle (SAW) about the fore-tellers. He said. -They are nothing." They said, O Allah's Apostle (SAW)! Sometimes they tell us of a thing which turns out to be true." Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "A Jinn snatches that true word and pours it into the ear of his friend (the foreteller) (as one puts something into a bottle). The foreteller then mixes with that word one hundred lies."
Narrated by Ayesha (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Sahih Bukhari transmitted it. Vol 7: #657 of Sahih Bukhari.
Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "Whoever comes to fortune-tellers, and ask him about something, his prayer is NOT accepted for forty nights."
Narrated by Hafsah (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Muslim transmitted it. Vol 2: #4391 of Mishkat al-Masabih.
Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "Whoever learns astrology, learns a branch of sorcery. He adds what he likes.
Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anhu); Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah transmitted it. Vol 2: #4394 of Mishkat al-Masabih.
Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "Whoever acquires a branch of astrology for a purpose other than that for which Allah mentioned, has indeed acquired a branch of sorcery, An astrologer is a sooth-sayer and a sooth-sayer is sorcerer and a sorcerer is an unbeliever."
Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anhu); Razin transmitted it. Vol 2: #4399 of Mishkat al-Masabih.
He who presumes that he would inform about what was going to happen tomorrow fabricates the greatest lie against Allah. And Allah says “Say thou [Muhammad (SAW)]: None in the heavens and the earth knoweth the UNSEEN except Allah”.
Narrated by Ayesha (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Vol 1: #0337 of Sahih Muslim.
In the light of above-mentioned Hadiths, HOW come Rasool Allah (SAW) did Foretell about Imaam Mahdi and Dajjaal?
May be He (SAW) didn’t. Not in Quraan and Authentic Hadith.
Islaam will eventually come to all over the World:
Their intention is to extinguish the Allah’s light (by blowing) with their mouths, but Allah will complete His light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it). [Al_Quraan_061.008]
Don’t waste your time in Foretelling and just do what Allah has commanded.
We Already have Two Miracles, The Quraan and Sunnah with us.
Allah’s Favor has already been completed on us.
