It is said in one of the Hadeeths (which are Islamic texts that record the preaching of Prophet Muhammad and interpret the Holy Koran) that the sign of imminent appearance of the Antichrist (Dajjal), Imam Mahdi and the second coming of Jesus Christ will be the occurrence of both a solar and a lunar eclipse in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. It is said that the war of the Antichrist will take place in the year following these occurrences.

Based on this prophecy, it is possible to speculate the timing of the war. Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. So a particular day under that calendar does not occur around the same day of the solar Roman calendar. Roughly speaking, every year the month of Ramadan starts 11 days before the day on which it started in the previous year, according to the solar calendar. For example, Ramadan started on 17th November in 2001. So in 2002 it will start approximately on 6th November, in 2003 on 26th October and so on. Based on this assumption, the approximate period of Ramadan according to the English calendar for the coming years can be worked out as follows:

2001 2002 2003 2004
16 Nov - 16 Dec 5 Nov - 5 Dec 25 Oct - 25 Nov 14 Oct - 14 Nov
2005 2006 2007 2008
3 Oct - 3 Nov 22 Sep - 22 Oct 11 Sep - 11 Oct 1 Sep - 1 Oct
2009 2010    
21 Aug - 21 Sep 10 Aug - 10 Sep    

Now we have to find out those solar and lunar eclipses during this period, total, partial or annular, which will be visible from the Middle East and find out whether both a solar and a lunar eclipse takes place in any of the above-mentioned periods.

Solar & lunar eclipses that both occur during Ramadan in the period 2001-2010 are in 2002 (4 Dec & 20 Nov respectively), 2003 (23 Nov & 8 Nov respectively), 2004 (14 Oct & 28 Oct respectively) and 2005 (3 Oct & 17 Oct respectively). The path/visibility of the eclipses are as follows :

Solar - South Africa, Indonesia, Australia
Lunar (Penumbral) - Americas, Africa, Europe, East Asia

Solar- Australia, New Zealand, South America
Lunar (Total) - Americas, Europe, Africa, Central Asia

Solar: NE Asia, Alaska, Hawaii
Lunar (Total) - America, Europe, Africa, Central Asia

Solar (annular) : Europe, Africa, S. Asia
Lunar (Partial) - Asia, Australia, Pacific, North America

The path of greatest visibility of the 2005 annular solar eclipse taking place on 3rd October will be Spain ->, Algeria -> Libya -> East Africa. However, annular or partial eclipse will be observed from the whole of Europe, Middle East including the Arabian Peninsula, Africa, Iran and India.

The Partial Lunar Eclipse taking place on 17th October 2005 can be observed from part of the Arabian Peninsula and Middle East, Iran and part of Europe during moon-rise.


Since the Hadeeth says that the Dajjal would appear in the year following the year when these eclipses take place, we get the time of the war as sometime after the end of 2006 or 2007 as Nostradamus seems to indicate in X.74 .

Nostradamus too, hints at the time (and place) of the appearance of the Antichrist in the "Epistle to Henry II" with reference to a solar eclipse; the relevant lines are quoted below -

Then the great Empire of the Antichrist will begin where once was Attila's empire and the new Xerxes will descend with great and countless numbers, so that the coming of the Holy Ghost, proceeding from the 48th degree, will make a transmigration, chasing out the abomination of the Christian Church, and whose reign will be for a time and to the end of time.

This will be preceded by a solar eclipse more dark and gloomy than any since the creation of the world, except that after the death and passion of Jesus Christ. And it will be in the month of October than the great translation will be made and it will be such that one will think the gravity of the earth has lost its natural movement and that it is to be plunged into the abyss of perpetual darkness.

The first para describes the place of the beginning of the empire of the Antichrist while the second para states that a solar eclipse, will precede the appearance of the Antichrist. It also states that the eclipse will take place in the month of October. This description tallies with the conclusions arrived from the Islamic prophecies that a solar eclipse will take place in the month of October preceding the year of the appearance of the Antichrist. The eclipse of 3rd October, 2005 will be visible from both France and Saudi Arabia.

The other solar eclipses visible in the month of October after the year 2005 are on -
23.10.2014 (partial) Visible from North and South Americas
25.10.2022 (partial) Visible from France and Saudi Arabia
14.10.2023 (annular) Visible from North and South Americas
02.10.2024 (annular) Visible from southern South America
25.10.2041 (annular) Visible from Australia and Pacific
14.10.2042 (annular) Visible from Australia and S. East Asia
03.10.2043 (annular) Visible from Australia and Antarctica
04.10.2051 (partial) Visible from Antarctica and Pacific
24.10.2060 (annular) Visible from Africa (misses Saudi Arabia)

Among all the Solar Eclipses visible in the month of October during the period 2006 - 2060, only the one of 25.10.2022, which will be a partial solar eclipse, will be visible from both France and Saudi Arabia. However, this being a partial eclipse will hardly cover France into an "abyss of perpetual darkness". The partial eclipse will take place in France during dawn to mid-day and in Saudi Arabia from afternoon till dusk. Moreover, this will not happen in the month of Ramadan and the nearest lunar eclipse of 8.11.2022 will not be visible from either France or Saudi Arabia or anywhere in Europe or West Asia. Thus, the solar eclipse of 25.10.2022 does not meet the criteria set by both the prophecies of Nostradamus and the Islamic prophecies.

In the next 60 years, the Solar Eclipse of 3rd October, 2005 uniquely stands out as the eclipse which fulfills both the prophecies of Nostradamus and the timing derived from the Islamic prophecies.

It may, thus be concluded that both Nostradamus and the Islamic prophecies speak of the Solar Eclipse of 3.10.2005 as an important milestone, signaling the appearance of the Antichrist within one year (2006-7) or so and the war that will follow.

Another clue regarding the timing of the Third World War can be obtained from a quatrain of Nostradamus, which correspond to the Islamic prophecies that talk about the appearance of "Urwah", the Arab Prince, who will appear before the appearance of Imam Mahdi and rule over Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria, defeat Iran and collaborate with a "Christian Group" to defeat another Christian Group while attacking Rome. The details of these prophecies have been discussed in the page on Russian invasion of Europe and on Islamic Prophecies. The quatrain is as follows :

The Arab Prince Mars, Sun, Venus, Leo, the rule of the Church will succumb by sea: Towards Persia very nearly a million men, The true serpent will invade Byzantium and Egypt. ~ Nostradamus, V.25

We have to work out the time when Mars, Sun and Venus is in the constellation of Leo as viewed from a town close to where Nostradamus wrote his prophecies, say, Marseille which is in Aix-en-Provence. On 28.8.2006, as viewed from Marseille, the positional details of Mars, Sun and Venus will be as follows:

Mars Data -

Mars, Sun, Venus in Leo as seen from Marseilles, Aix-en-Provence, France on 28.8.2006 (Click to enlarge)

It can be seen that around 28.8.2006, Mars, Sun and Venus will be in Leo. This could be the time of the appearance of the Arab prince or the time when the attack against Italy will start. This timing coincides with the timing of the appearance of Antichrist and start of WW-III derived from other sources and using other methods as described in this page.
