He's just trying to squeze you, tell him you'll go to the labor courts

Is this contract dated 12 years back when you joined? It seems he wants to legalize staff by making them sign employment contract dated backwards.
Legally speaking he cant make you serve the end of contract BUT if it is for short period of time there is no harm to complete the contract considering your lengthy period of employment and indemnity with them.

If you don't have any contract with your sponsor, then the law will consider the expiry date of your iqama as the last day of yours contract. Complete the the remaining time and give notice to your company of 60 days before expiry of iqama. Tell them you no longer interested to renew it. Read article 37,74, 76,77,80 and 81 of labor law too.
