Make no mistake, by any meaningful measure of the word Lord, none serves as such over you more than TIME does.
"Muslims" understand the word "ساعة" to be reference to the "end of the world", as in when everyone on earth dies due to some divine cosmic event that destroys earth. Spiritually speaking, they're not really too far off. But if they are being literal then why would they assign the term "ساعة" to such major TIME related concepts and objects like: Watch, Clock, Hour.
Imagine, if when we came up with the ounce as unit of measuring volume, we decided to use the term "hellfire" instead. Or if we did that in the case for miles as a measure of distance. So, we would say a car was traveling 60 hells per hour instead of miles per hour. Actually is technically a "bad word" in English, like a full blown profanity. Yet somehow, the phrase miles per hour doesn't sound strange to Arabs, given that it should sound the same as miles/hell would sound to an english speaker.
The simple truth is "ساعة" is nothing other than the object of worship guiding their every decision they call "TIME"

notes on ARC/ARK
ARK in its absolute form means "CONTAINER", and depending on the context more specific forms have developed over the years. And as usual, we can easily trace the origin of most words to their original Semetic root when we view it from the Perspective of the Absolute Context. So climbing up the branches of the evolutionary tree of the English language, we can easily see the connection between English word "Ark" and the French "Arche". The meaning of the words is most commonly viewed in the religious contexts of the Story of Noah's Ark and the Ark of the Covenant. It would not be clear to see the connection between a large wooden ship carrying people and animals in the sea, and a much smaller stone chest of scriptures being carried by people rather than carrying people; Two things that are almost exact opposite of one another in terms of function and purpose. Yet it is this relationship that makes it easier to see the true meaning (thus purpose) behind the word. Because these contradictions in functions have helped us eliminate most possible connections that can drown the true meaning of the word. Meaning there remains only one perspective that remains, from which the Ark can be seen to perform the same function/purpose and thus we are able to identify the word and its true meaning. And this perspective is obviously of those being contained/carried by the Ark. So the "Ark of the Covenant" is called an "Ark" because it is the vessel that contains the Covenant (here referring to God's written word), regardless of the shape, material, design, structure of the vessel (This is important to understand). Similarly, The "Ark of Noah" is referring to the vessel that carried/contained Noah and his family. So what we must understand here is that everything that contains anything is considered an Ark from the perspective of what is being contained in it. So a car can be described as an Ark just as easily as a piece of aluminum foil can be described as an Ark of a Sandwich. (Again this very important to understand). So in short all other words like cars, ships, planes etc... are all subcategories that or more specific Arks referring to Arks with certain characteristics or designed for specific functions only like the medium of travel. But the main idea is that they are all Arks nonetheless.
I think we can feel pretty confident we arrived to the Absolute form of the word. But before I connect it back to our discussion of Time and Clocks, we are yet to arrive at the root of the word in Arabia. The Arabic word for Ark in the two afromentioned religious contexts is translated as a "Noah's ship" and "Coffin of the Covenant". The word "Ship" being used for the obvious reason, while "Coffin" was used at a time when the Arabic word for Coffin was attributed to all rectangular shaped chests with covering that were used for storage, before its meaning became exclusive to the "Ark of dead bodies" we are used to today. So here we hit a dead end, but we follow a phonetic path, there is an Arabic word that is spelled and pronounced almost exactly the same as the French word "Arch". So in English letters pronounced A' R SH (With the appostrophe on A' indicating the latinized equivalent for the arabic letter ع which doesn't exist in French or English nor can I combine any letters to create the sound. But a close representation would be "Ain or Ein" (which also happens to mean Eye) but in English we usually replace it with A. For example the word Arabic or Arab, it is not actually an A in the beginning, not the same A in the middle or sound exactly the same as the rest of the letters R, A & B.
With this said, the Arabic "Arsh" means throne. And in a religious context, the Qur'an uses this word when referring to the throne of God. However if we examine the Qur'an closely we notice that God mentions the throne when he is exalting himself of something above others. So we see the same word in many different ways with one common thread of meaning between all of them that can summarize the [Super] Absolute meaning of the word "Arsh" as a (any membrane dividing one medium into two distinct mediums, one of the two being exalted above the other-today in Lebanon, grape vines that climb up and cover the ceilings outdoors are referred to with derivative of the word "Arsh"). So when God is talking about his throne, he usually adds to it to distinguish it from other thrones, like the Great Throne, or the Glorified Throne. So how and why did this "Membrane" come to mean "Vessel" or a "Container". To understand this, we must first understand that this "Membrane" is in its most abstract form, and it doesn't exatly mean what most people imagine when they hear the word membrane. Membrane being described here expands to cover everyone but it only allows a few to pass through, and when we get to the membrane that separates mankind from God. A new term is used which I will address next. This tells and since we are discussing membranes that seperate groups in a fashion one holds authority over the other (think of a lateral separation/and a more exclusive ascent) then speaking in a 3D fashion (given that we are in the abstract here) Any one inside the coccoon like membrane has authority over the ones outside of it. We can see now why the word "Throne" is envisioned as the container of authority or "Ark of Power". This will become more clear when we look at Ayat Alkursi.
perhaps one of or the most famous verse in the Qur'an. From the its name "Verse of the Chair", you can begin to guess what it's about. being in clSo when he speaks about his dominion over the earth and his creation, things . Now despite the common beliefs and uses of the word throne, , and closely similar in its use to the Arabic word "Kursi". God's describes his throne as the . The word "Kursi"
The word "Kursi" means "seat" or "chair" in Arabic. So by following through along the rules of exact distinctions by direct correspondence of analogies, we can take the word "Kursi" when used by God, as his material (to us) container of Power, compared to the abstract form represented by the word "Throne". And by drawing from the other sections, we can conclude that God's Seat (Kursi) is the physical/material manifestation of his merci embodied by His Word (Both in Scripture & in Flesh).
And just like the word "Chairman" today has become reference to the Chairman of the Board of an implied company, the word "Arsh/Ark" when used without an explicitly specified domain was understood as the throne of God among the ancients. We can witness a solid example of this by translating the word in Greek and find its meaning to be:
SHODOWS IN DARKNESS

"There will be 3 letters on his forehead that everyone will be able to read even illiterate people"
"He will rule for 40 days, 1 day is like a year, 1 day is like a month, and one day is like regular days"
A Prophet of GOD
We discussed why forehead represents a place of display which makes "3 letters" a refference to the 3 components of our modern time Hours, Minutes, and Seconds. The reason I underlined modern is because the next clue compared his "days" to the periods (durations) they were familiar with and how each one was subdivision of a larger one. Just like hours can be divided up minutes and they into seconds, months are also divided into weeks and weeks into days.
"The Dajjal will enter every city and every home"
A Prophet of GOD
(Displayed Everywhere Proudly-City Centers/downtowns, Iconic Buildings, City Hauls, Religious Centers and pilgrimage sites, Centers of finance, centers of governance, Even on Plazas in Dearborn, and of course on the walls of your Homes -
"He will be everywhere, enter every land and every home except Ka’aba - He will stand outside of the Ka’aba but will not be able to enter"
"The hour will cast a shadowon Ka’aba"
A Prophet of GOD
People can't enter the Haram of Kaaba with any clothing including wrist watches.
I think this video explains the shadow casting part
They ask you (prophet) about the Hour (al-saa`atu): “When will be its time?” Say: “Its knowledge is only with my Lord, none can reveal it of its time except He. It is heavy in the heavens and the earth; it will not come to you except suddenly.”
THE END OF TIME
Until then, I leave you with this...

THE WHEEL The term used for this “Beast” in the book of revelations is translated as “Dragon”. The word for dragon in Arabic is “تنين” which is also Arabic word for the number “2”, or more accurately, for the word “second” (as supposed to First).
