Islam - An economical view - prophecy about collapse of the fraudulent monetary system
Abu Bakr ibn Abi Maryam reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah say: “A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing (left) that will be of use (or benefit) save a Dinar (i.e., a gold coin) and a Dirham (i.e., a silver coin).”
This prophecy clearly anticipates the eventual collapse of the fraudulent monetary system now functioning around the world.

Mohammad (PBUH) and the previous prophets.
Mohammad (PBUH) is respected as a prophet. He is not regarded as the “founder” of Islam, but rather as one in a long line of prophets from Adam to Abraham, Moses, Solomon, and Jesus. Islam therefore did not begin with Mohammad, whose role was that of a “messenger” who received and passed on a revelation from God. He made it clear that Muslims should “call me the servant of God and His messenger.” He is regarded as a human being and in no way divine. He is the final prophet who completed the revelation began by the earlier prophets.
Muslims believe in previous prophets, the Qur’an teaches that Jews & Christians are all “People of the Book.”
Here are some words of wisdom for prophet Mohammad (PBUH):
“You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.”
"What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured." (Bukhari)
"Acquire knowledge, it enables its professor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way to heaven. It is our friend in the desert, our company in solitude and companion when friendless. It guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery, it is an ornament amongst friends and an armour against enemies." (widely attributed to the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh))
"Keep yourselves far from envy; because it eats up and takes away good actions, like a fire eats up and burns wood." (Abu Daud)
"Much silence and a good disposition, there are no two things better than these." (Bukhari)
"Do you know what is better than charity and fasting and prayer? It is keeping peace and good relations between people, as quarrels and bad feelings destroy mankind." (Muslims & Bukhari)
