Islam is all about love, compassion and mercy. However the system of the Mahdi would not come into existence without the system of the antichrist (dajjal). Cruelty will come first, then compassion will follow; cold-heartedness will come first, then compassion will follow; first there will be lack of love, then love will come. Almighty God creates all these for people in order for them to appreciate these blessings.
