Q. Is the “12th Imam” the anti-Christ? Do you believe the anti-Christ could be Muslim? I’ve always been taught and believed “He” would arise out of the revived Roman Empire.
A. For several years I’ve been writing that Muslim prophecies of the 12th Imam are very similar to Christian prophecies of the anti-Christ. There’s also the current reality that Islam is better positioned to become the one world religion of the end times than any other. And remember, the eastern leg of the Roman Empire consisted of lands currently occupied by some of the most militant Islamic nations. The possibility that the anti-Christ could come from one of these nations would not conflict with the prophecy that he will emerge from the revived Roman Empire.
