Q. My question is, how can the anti-Christ possibly be a muslim when it says the anti-Christ will proclaim himself to be god in the temple?  no muslim would ever say he is god, because in their religion that would be blasphemy.  please explain.

A. Remember, the anti-Christ will be indwelt by Satan.  The Bible calls him the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4) and says the whole world is under his control (1 John 5:19).  As far as Satan is concerned he is the god of this world.  He won’t consider himself to be a member of any religion, but the object of worship for all religions (2 Thes. 2:4).  According to Rev. 13:4 the world will agree and worship him as such.

    Can I please know what more predictions about the Anti-Christ does bible contain, about his looks and his famous ride.

    The Bible really does not say anything specific about where the Antichrist will come from. Many Bible scholars speculate that he will come from a confederacy of ten nations and/or a reborn Roman empire (Daniel 7:24-25; Revelation 17:7). Others see him as having to be a Jew in order to claim to be the Messiah. It is all just speculation since the Bible does not specifically say where the Antichrist will come from or what race he will be. One day, the Antichrist will be revealed. Second Thessalonians 2:3-4 tells us how we will recognize the Antichrist: “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”

    It is likely that most people who are alive when the Antichrist is revealed will be very surprised at his identity. The Antichrist may or may not be alive today. Martin Luther was convinced that the pope in his time was the Antichrist. During the 1940’s, many believed Adolph Hitler was the Antichrist. Others who have lived in the past few hundred years have been equally sure as to the identity of the Antichrist. So far, they have all been incorrect. We should put the speculations behind us and focus on what the Bible actually says about the Antichrist. Revelation 13:5-8 declares, “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”

    There is nothing that really covers his looks in detail, and I don’t understand what you mean about “his famous ride.”

    • Hasan says:

      According to the Islamic traditions about the Anti-Christ, the Donkey of the Anti-Christ is said to appear first, the mystical ride for the Anti-Christ

  4. Hasan says:

    Not in the Qura’an, though Qura’an mentions the era of the Ant-Christ. But Islamic traditons (Hadith) has details on it. I thought may be Christian traditions will have something.

    I want to know all the references from Christian traditions can you give them to me?
