Recently, the belief in the expectation of a savior before the end of the world is one of the most controversial issues. Muslim societies consider this matter as the return of Jesus and Messianism. Some people frequently bring into questions on the stories of Messianism in hadith sources and exploits this information. This situation makes Islamic scholars must discuss the Messianism issue again. Also, the approach of recent Islamic scholars on Messianism is markedly important. This presentation addresses Messianism perception of Muhammed Tâhir b. Âşûr (death. 1973) who is one of the remarkable Islamic scholars of the twentieth century. He discusses Messianism issue focusing on both its place and historical background in religion and some related reports. Ibn Âşûr examines Messianism with a critical approach, unlike many Islamic scholars who consider Messianism in a positive way.
