Appearance; The Victory
Allah has promised those of you who believe and do good that He will most certainly make them rulers on the earth as He made rulers out of those who came before them, and that He will most certainly establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them, and that he will most certainly, after their fear, give them security in exchange they shall serve Me, not associating ought with Me (Qur'an 17:55).
Human belief in a better future has many features. In our time this may differ in its manifestations, but will nevertheless share a similar foundation. Even those who use different prophecies to promote their own interests are in one way or another looking to have an ideal society based on their own norms and ideologies.
Islam have never encouraged its followers to believe or even pay attention to any form of prediction, especially of the astrological variety. The promise of God (swt) should not be confused with the ramblings of someone such as Nostradamus. Though God (swt) has promised man a peaceful future, there are many groups which attempt to give a dark and obscure picture of the future of mankind. Most of these groups make use of Nostradamus' quatrains (four-line verses).
