The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), or Islamic state of Iraq and Levant, follows a distinctive variety of Islamic theology . whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment and the end of world ,central to its strategy, and if Europe and western world wants to know its enemy and predict its behavior better than before after the Paris attacks then they must learn what ISIS really think about end of world? How their terrorism is connected to the foretold apocalypse according to ISIS.
Musa Cerantonio, an Australian preacher reported to be one of the Islamic State’s most influential recruiters,Whose Australian citizenship is been cancelled , believes it is foretold that the caliphate will sack Istanbul before it is beaten back by an army led by the anti-Messiah, whose eventual death by Jesus , when just a few thousand jihadists remain—will usher in the apocalypse.
The ISIS belief that there will be only 12 legitimate caliphs, and Baghdadi is the eighth that the armies of Rome will come to meet the armies of Islam in northern Syria; and that Muslim’s final showdown with an anti-Messiah will occur in Jerusalem,Israel after a period of renewed Islamic conquest.
Mehdi is also the central figure in all this.He will be the leader of the army that shall fight under Jesus against Dajjal or anti messiah .
The Prophetic narrations or Hadiths (some Islamic sects disgaree with these narrations and consider them false or weak in evidence ) that foretells the Dabiq battle refers to the enemy as Rome. Who “Rome” is, now that the pope has no army, remains a matter of debate. But ISIS makes a case that Rome meant the Eastern Roman empire, which had its capital in what is now Istanbul. We should think of Rome as the Republic of Turkey—the same republic that ended the last self-identified caliphate, 90 years ago. Other Islamic State sources suggest that Rome might mean any unbeliever western army, and the Americans will do nicely.
So in short according to ISIS , the army who will help the Mehdi , is theirs ,who then lead that army and fight with Dajjal the anti christ ,after heavy defeats Jesus himself will return to this world again and defeat Dajjal or anti messiah and after a period of peace the world will end in chaos.
