Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has prophecised many major and minor signs of Qiyamah. Among the minor signs of Qiyamah mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in various ahadith are the following:

 

  • People will greet only those whom they know.
  • Businesses will expand to such an extent that womenfolk will also be introduced into the business.
  • The fitna of the pen will emerge (referring to the evil and deviating literature so common nowadays).
  • People will sever ties with relatives.
  • False evidence will become a common practice.
  • True evidence will be falsified.
  • Interest will be labelled  as "sale" or "profit."
  • Bribes will be labelled as "gifts" (names of these haraam practices will be changed in an attempt to legalise them).
  • The Musjids will be decorated but the hearts of  people will be devoid of guidance.
  • Hypocrites will be in control of the affairs of the community.
  • There will be an abundance of divorce.
  • There will be an abundance of illegitimate children.
  • People will  indulge in sodomy and lesbianism.
  • There will be an abundance of critics, tale-carriers, back-biters and taunters in society.

An international pop star was allowed to play his music in a musjid. Though he was only given approximately a minute, the pop star got immediately on the act and used his minute to the full. His complete band played along while he sang some lines from his latest release. There was a mixed response from those present. While most of the congregation were enraged, some did not seem too bothered. After all, they also had pop bands playing …on their CELLPHONES.

Murder, looting, plundering, fraud, corruption … and the seemingly never ending list of misery and torment that has become the order of the day. The prevalence of such conditions have become a way of life. Unless the victims were near and dear, sensational headlines depicting murder and mayhem also do not evoke shock and disbelief. While the crime rate continues to spiral out of control, debates, discussions and conferences abound as to what are the factors leading to this deplorable condition. The debates and discussions will continue but unless the only real solution is not adopted, no difference will occur in the prevailing situation. The question is who has the solution and what is it?

This is an account given by Maulana Ilyas (rahmatullahi 'alayhi)'s son, Maulana Yusuf, of the last words spoken to him by his father.

On Wednesday near 4 o'clock (at night), Hadhrat (Rahmatullah 'Alayhi) was lying in his bed with me sitting on his right side. (May Allah grant us perfect mercy in this world and the Hereafter and may He grant us the ability to follow in Hadhrat's footsteps properly.) He called me and I went to sit on his left side facing him.

Amr bin Awf (R.A.) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) : "I do not fear poverty for you (the Ummah) but what I really fear is that the worldly wealth may be increased for you as it was increased for those before you. Hence you will compete with one another for the world just as those before you competed with one another for it. It will then destroy you just as it destroyed them" (Sahih Bukhari).
