The Day of Judgement is part of the Belief in Islam. Every Muslim has to believe in the Judgement Day and the signs of the Last Hour or the Final Hour. That is why every Prophet warned His people of the Day of Resurrection. But the knowledge of the Day of Judgement is with Allah alone. However certain events are going to take place before the last hour. These events are known as the Fitna (Evils) of the Day of Resurrection. Our Prophet (P.B.U.H) being the Last Prophet and knowing that the Doomsday is to come on this very Ummah, explained the Major signs and Minor signs before the Qiyamah clearly.

When will the Day of Judgement be?

It is said in the Quran:

“Verily Allah, with Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour” [Luqman: 34]

A Hadith stated by Imam Muslim:

Angel Jibreel (A.S) came in the guise of man, after asking about Islam, Imaan and Ihsaan, Angel Jibreel (A.S) asked Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) “then tell me about the hour (meaning the last day)”, the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) replied, “The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner” (Muslim, vol 1, Hadith no.4)

Signs before the Final Hour

Minor Signs before the Last Hour:

In this post 10 Minor signs of Day of Judgment are discussed. Rest will be discussed in next post; Inshallah. The majority of the minor signs of Resurrection Day have appeared while some are occurring and some will appear with major signs.

1. Appearance of Ignorance

Narrated by Abdullah (R.A) the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

Just before the Hour, there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will appear, and there will be much killing”.[Ibn Majah]

2. Afflictions (Fitna) will occur like rain drops

Narrated Usama bin Zaid (R.A) that Once the Prophet (P.B.U.H) stood over one of the high buildings of Medina and then said (to the people),

“Do you see what I see?” They said, “No.” He said, “I see afflictions falling among your houses as rain drops fall.” [Bukhari]

3. Time will pass rapidly

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A) that The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,

“Time will pass rapidly, good deeds will decrease, miserliness will be thrown (in the hearts of the people) afflictions will appear and there will be much ‘Al-Harj.” They said, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is “Al-Harj?” He said, “Killing! Killing!” [Bukhari; Vol.8, Hadith 63]

Narrated Anas ibn Malik (R.A) Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H) said,

“The last hour will not come before time contracts, a year being like a month, a month like a week, a week like a day, a day like an hour, and an hour like the kindling of a fire.” [Tirmidhi]

4. Exposing oneself to the Fitna

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A) Allah’s Apostle (P.B.U.H) said,

“There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking one, and the walking one will be better than the running one, and whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it.” [Bukhari]

5. Construction of High Buildings

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A) that Allah’s Apostle (P.B.U.H) said,

“The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah’s Apostle, (3) till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of Religious scholars) (4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will appear, (7) Al-Harj, (i.e., killing) will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance; so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be offered) will say, ‘I am not in need of it, (9) till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, ‘Would that I were in his place’ [Bukhari]

6. Women will increase in number

Narrated Anas (R.A) the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“Women will increase in number and men will decrease in number so much so that fifty women will be looked after by one man.” (Bukhari)

7. People will kill each other

Narrated Hudhayfah(R.A) that The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,

“The last hour will not come till you kill your leader, fight together with your swords, and your worst ones inherit your worldly goods.”  [Tirmidhi]

8. Wine will be permitted

At-Tabaraani narrated that Sahl ibn Sa’d (R.A) said that Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said:

“At the end of time there will be earthquakes, slander, transmutation into animals [or disfigurement, deformity], when stringed instruments and female singers will be widespread, and wine will be permitted.” (Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3665)

9. Muslims will fight with each other

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported from Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H):

“The last Hour will not come until the two parties (of Muslims) confront each other and there is a large-scale massacre amongst them and the claim of both of them is the same.” [Muslim]

10. People will start worshiping Idols

Aisha (R.A) reported:

“I heard Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H) as saying: The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and ‘Uzza.” [Muslim]

First 10 afflictions are discussed. Rest will be discussed in next post, Inshaa Allah.

May Allah save us from the afflictions that have appeared and from the one which are about to appear. Ameen.

    As-Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu <3 … Scary when you see that many of the warnings given to us so long ago — are coming to pass in our time: or have already come to pass. May Allah have mercy on us all…(ameen) X

  2. M Khan says:

    The world (but not the universe) can end because of earthquake, tsunami, meteor strike, nuclear war, supernova, and some other natural or man made disaster. These are however just local ends that have nothing to do with The Day of judgment. End will also not happen on any arbitrary date like December 2012. The end of the universe is an entirely different phenomenon that is built into the laws of the universe by the creator. The contraction of the universe with reversal of time and gravity will commence the beginning of the end which will last for thousands and possibly millions of years. We will be removed from the regressing effects of reversed time as we come back alive in our own time. We will the be taken across many dimensions to beyond this universe. A beautiful natural mechanism that is based on the laws of physics will cause all that to happen as mentioned in the holy quran.
