In Global Warming and Islam Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that the United Nations panel of 25,000 scientists from 130 countries submitted a detailed report on global warming, which was published in the Times of India on February 3, 2007, titled 'Warning Signs'. According to him, the more appropriate title for it would have been, 'Warning Signs of Doomsday' as both Quranic revelation and science now confirm that the end of history, in reality, has come very close. From the Islamic viewpoint, God had made this world for a limited period of time for a test. Now those signs have appeared which tell us that this limited period of time is reaching its end. Now the time has finally come for man to awaken, to take lessons from the signs in nature and in history, and plan his life in a way that avails him in his post-death period. One who loses this opportunity should know that another such opportunity is not going to come again.
