Is The Antichrist A Muslim? (BW20)

'Understand Mysteries of Daniel'
 
Since the Antichrist is the head of the former Persian Empire where more than 90% are Muslims, is it possible that he is a Muslim?
    
Islam is very diverse with Muslims practicing from the many hadiths (traditional accounts of things said or done by Muhammad or his companions) written by various Muslim historians. To really understand Islam, we must look into the belief and practices of Muslims in Saudi Arabia - the home of Islam where all Muslims throughout the whole world will gather together to perform the Hajj.

Dan 11:37-38 "He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things."

1. God of His father - Yahweh' is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. The Arabs or Ishmaelites (descendants​ of Hagar) reject Isaac as the first born of Abraham, so their Allah is not Yahweh for He is not the God of Isaac nor the God of Jacob.

2. Desires of women - Saudi Arabia the home of Islam (Wahhabi Muslims) has no regard of the desires of women (husband's love, husband of one wife, control of family, freedom to dress, move about and socialize, etc.)

3. No regard of any god - Allah is the only God and Muslims have no regard of the God (including Yahweh) of other religions.

4. Worship the Fortress - At the Hajj in Mecca, non Muslim will think that the Muslims are worshipping the black fortress housing the Kaaba stone.

5. Decorated with gold, silver, etc. - the black cloth covering the fortress is very expensive for it is decorated and embroidered with gold, silver and precious stones.

6. Advance the glory of Allah
Dan 11:39 "Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain."

7. Control all non Muslims - they will advance their ambition to conquer and control all nations and if possible the whole world, and subject them to taxes (gains). The Saudi Arabians are Wahhabi Muslims (part of the Sunni sect), which breeds almost all of today's terrorists (Al Qaeda, IS, etc.). They will fight for Allah (a foreign god) by proclaiming 'Allah Akbar' or Allah is Great'. They will fight against all institutions to advance Islam and glorify Allah.

The Antichrist is definitely a Muslim. Since he is the head (king of the North) of the former Persian Empire (Iran, Iraq, Syria), then he must be a Shia Muslim.

John 14:15-16, 26 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever --... But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
    
Brethren, if we obey our Lord Jesus' instruction by reading the book of Daniel watchfully, we will understand better end time Prophecies and events. God has hidden many important mysteries and truth in the book of Daniel to test our submission, humility and love for Him.

John 16:13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."
