Signs of the Hour

Asalam Wa Alikum



True Signs of the Hour


In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful, and peace and prayers be upon his
final Prophet and messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, and mercy be upon all of his family
and companions. And then…..
One of the miracles of the Prophet Mohammad, and proofs for his actuality of his prophecy
is what he has told us about the matters of the unseen. Futuristic events which nobody else
could predict its occurrence, while Prophet predicted took place and this is also a miracle of
the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him
For example his report-peace be upon him- about the signs of the hour, the signs of the
Resurrection. These signs will happen before that day and warn of the hour approaching.
The occurrence of most of the hour signs is a catalyze for Muslims to prepare for the Day of
Judgment. This motivates the Muslim to abandon the heedlessness and not to incline to
dunya. The feeling of the approach of The Judgment Day makes Muslim do lots of good
works and pledge obedience to Allah.
In these few pages we'll talk about some of The Minor Signs of the Last Day, which the
Prophet told his nation of:
1- The appearance of fitan (tribulations)
For the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:" Before the Last Hour there will be commotions
like pieces of a dark night in which a man will be a believer in the morning and an infidel in
the evening, or a believer in the evening and infidel in the morning." [Authenticated by
Al-Albani]
«... إن بين يدي الساعة فتنًا كقطع الليل المظلم، يصبح الرجل فيها مؤمنًا ويمسي كافرًا، ويمسي مؤمنًا ويصبح كافرًا »
صحيح الألباني
2- Lost of honesty
The Prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- said: “Allah’s Apostle said, “When honesty is lost,
then wait for the Hour.” It was asked, “How will honesty be lost, O Allah’s Apostle?” He said, “When
authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the Hour.”” [Al-Bukhari]
‹‹إذا ضيعت الأمانة فانتظر الساعة. قال : كيف إضاعتها يا رسول الله ؟ قال : إذا أسند الأمر إلى غير أهله فانتظر الساعة››
رواه البخاري
3- The taking away of knowledge and the prevalence of ignorance
It's said in hadith: "Among the signs of the Hour will be the disappearance of knowledge and the
appearance of ignorance". [Al-Bukhari]
‹‹من أشراط الساعة أن يرفع العلم، ويثبت الجهل››
رواه البخاري
4- Frequent occurrences of sudden and unexpected death;
For the Prophet’s hadith: Episodes of sudden death will become widespread.
‹‹وأن يظهر موت الفجأة [في حديث أشراط الساعة] ››
حسنه الألباني
5- Spread of killing
The Prophet Peace and blessings upon him said, “The establishment of the Hour is conditioned to the
occurrence of much commotion. They asked: O messenger of Allah, what is commotion? He said:
spread of killing” [Muslim]
‹‹لا تقوم الساعة حتى يكثر الهرج " قالوا : وما الهرج ؟ يا رسول الله ! قال " القتل . القتل ››
رواه مسلم
6- Acceleration of time:
The Prophet Muhammad said "the hour will not take place until the time is accelerated ".
[Authenticated by Al-Albani]
‹‹لا تقوم الساعة حتى يتقارب الزمان››
صحيح الألباني
It was said that the time acceleration means "there won't be blessing (barakah) in time. And it was
said that it means: When the length of days is stretched, the journey of a few days is covered in a
matter of hours, because of the spread of the modern means of transport, the air, ground, and marine
transportation, or it means a real shortness and quickness of the time.

7- Abundance of police squads and oppressive officials
The Prophet said" People having whips similar to ox-tails with which they will beat people, they come
and go in discontent of Allah" [Az-Zahaby]
‹‹يكون في هذه الأمة في آخر الزمان رجال معهم سياط كأنها أذناب البقر يغدون في سخط الله ويروحون في غضبه››
قال الذهبي: سنده وسط
