Abstract

Muslim apocalyptic literature is extremely important as a source to the history of the Muslim community in the first centuries of the hijra. The basic source is the Qur'ān, but most of the materials belong to the ḥadīth (the Muslim Tradition), in which the stamp of the Judaeo-Christian tradition is well attested. The field as a whole has not been explored thoroughly, and this article presents certain aspects and observations mainly corcerning the view that there was a close connection among Jewish, Christian and Muslim eschatological traditions and that inquiring into the Muslim apocalypse needs, in addition to information from Muslim historical sources, close examination of the parallel Judaeo-Christian apocalyptic tradition. The article deals inter alia with the special apocalyptic terminology and basic conceptions, the sources, the circles involved in the creation of Muslim apocalyptic traditions and some aspects of Muslim traditions between Judaism and Christianity.
