Signs Of Qiyamah
The Qur’aan reminds us time and again that this universe has been created temporarily and at an appointed time it will surely be annihilated, “Verily Allah Alone has the knowledge of the Hour” (Qur’aan). The Qur’aan and the hadeeth have informed us about various signs which will occur prior to Qiyamah and which will be indicative of the closeness of the event. More
All the previous Ambiyaa (A.S.) informed their respective Ummahs about the signs of Qiyamah, but Our Beloved Nabi Sayyidena Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) informed his Ummah about these signs in much greater detail. According to a hadeeth appearing in Sahih Muslim, Sayyidena Abi Zaid (R.A.) says, “Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) once led the Fajr Salaah after which he ascended the pulpit and addressed us till Zuhr Salaah. He alighted from the pulpit, performed Zuhr Salaah and ascended the pulpit. He then addressed us till Asr and descended from the pulpit. He performed Salaah and ascended the Mimbar. He then addressed us till sunset. (In these sermons) He informed us about those incidents which had occurred as well as those which are yet to occur. Those with stronger memories amongst us remembered most of them.” It is indeed very unfortunate to note that despite having before us the various warnings and signs regarding Qiyamah which have been mentioned by none other than Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), and handed down to us via the authentic channel of the noble companions, yet certain people professing to be Muslims attach no importance whatsoever to these teachings.
