Signs of the last day

Signs of the last day

 “The threatened Hour is nigh”.  Surat An-Najm (The Star) 53:57

 

“They ask thee about the Hour, ‘When will be its appointed time?’ Wherein art thou (concerned) with the declaration thereof? With thy Lord is the Limit fixed thereof. Thou art but a Warner for such as fear it. The Day they will see it, (it will be) as if they had tarried but a single evening, or (at most till) the following morn!” 

Al-Qur’an 79:42-46

“They ask thee about the (final) Hour – when will be its appointed time? Say: ‘The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone): none but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only, all of a sudden will it come to you.’ They ask thee as if thou were eager in search thereof: say: ‘The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone), but most men know not.’ “

Al-Qur’an 7:187

Do they then feel secure from the coming against them of the covering veil of the wrath of Allah,- or of the coming against them of the (final) Hour all of a sudden while they perceive not?

Al-Qur’an Surat Yūsuf 12:107

 

 

This world will come to an end following it will be Al Qiyamat the resurrection day and judgement day. This world is not meant to last forever because everything was created for a purpose to serve and worship Allah alone “I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.”adh-Dhariyat 51:56, your time here is for you to prepare yourself for the hereafter.

The end of the world, known as the hour (last day) is mention several time in the Holy Quran.  Only Allah subhan wa tala knows the day it will happen “They ask thee about the (final) Hour – when will be its appointed time? Say: ‘The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone): none but He can reveal as to when it will occur. “Al-Qur’an 79:42-46. Even though we may not know when the exact hour will take place Allah subhan wa talaha has given us many signs before that day will come and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)  has mentioned some events that will happen before the final hour. Some of these events that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)  mentioned more than 1400 years ago has already taken place which is another signs and miracle of Allah subhan wa tala.

 

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

Signs following one another like the pieces of a necklace falling one after the other when its string is cut.(Tirmidhi)

The Harj (will increase).” They asked, “What is the Harj?” He replied, “(It is) killing (murdering), (it is) murdering (killing).”(Bukhari)

The Hour will come when violence, bloodshed, and anarchy become common.(Al-Muttaqi Al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanzul Ummaal)

The world will not come to an end until a day would come to the people on which there will be general massacre and bloodshed.(Muslim)

Great cities will be ruined and it will be as if they had not existed the day before.(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-Zaman)

“Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).” [Al-Qur’an 31:34]

And lo! verily there is knowledge of the Hour. So doubt ye not concerning it, but follow Me. This is the right path.Surat Az-Zukhruf 43:61

Are they waiting except for the Hour to come upon them suddenly while they perceive not? 43:66

“Closer and closer to mankind comes their Reckoning: yet they heed not and they turn away.” [Al-Qur’an 21:1]

“(Inevitable) cometh (to pass) the Command of Allah: seek, ye not then to hasten it.” [Al-Qur’an 16:1]

“Only those wish to hasten it who believe not in it: those who believe hold it in awe, and know that it is the Truth.” [Al-Qur’an 42:18]

Corruption has appeared in both land and sea because of what people’s own hands have brought about so that they may taste something of what they have done so that hopefully they will turn back. (Surat ar-Rum: 41)
