Major Signs before the Day of Judgement

All praises is due to Allah. We praise Him, ask him, and seek his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from evils of ourselves and mischiefs of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides, cannot be misguided. Peace and blessings be upon the Final Messenger MuhammedPeace and blessings be upon him, on his family and his noble companions , Ameen

Belief in Doomsday is one of the fundamentals and pillars of faith. It is the day when everyone is to get recompense and punishment for one’s work and has to go to heaven or hell according to one’s deeds. This is the reason each and every Prophet warned his people of the Day of Judgement.

As for the knowledge of the time of Qiyamah (End of the World) , it has not been given to any angel or Prophet. Nobody besides Allah knows when the final hour is.
The Quran states, O Prophet the infidels ask you about the time of Qiyamah. So tell them that it’s knowledge is with Allah only.   (Surah Luqman)

However certain events are going to take place prior to the coming of the final hour. These events are known as the Signs of Qiyamah. All the Prophets informed their people of the signs of the final hour. Our Prophet Muhammed Peace and blessings be upon him being the last and the seal of Prophets, knowing that Doomsday is to come upon this very ummah, explained clearly and in considerable detail the signs of the final hour to the extent that sometimes he Peace and blessings be upon himwould lecture his companions all day on this subject.

 Abu Zaid (R.A.)May Allah be pleased with him says, ‘The Holy Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him sat down on the pulpit after Fajar Prayer and began a deliver a long sermon until the time for Zohr prayer came. After saying the Zohr prayer he Peace and blessings be upon him again sat on the pulpit and began the sermon, which continued till Asr prayer. After the Asr prayer he Peace and blessings be upon him resumed the sermon so much so that the sun set. he Peace and blessings be upon him related whatever happened in the past and also related in detail whatever is to happen in the future. Those amongst us who had good memories retained many things.’ (Muslim)

The signs of the final hour can be divided into two groups.

1) Minor signs
Minor signs are events of normal nature prophesised by our Prophet Muhammed Peace and blessings be upon him to take place before Qiyamah like the consumption of alcohol, lifting of knowledge and prevalence of ignorance and immorality and signs of this nature. The majority of the minor signs have appeared while some are occurring and some will appear with major signs.

2) Major signs
Major signs are events of extraordinary nature prophesied by our Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him to take place before Qiyamah like all the events mentioned in the following hadith narrated by Hudhaifa ibn Usayd that the Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him said, ‘The last hour will not arrive till  you have seen ten signs. He Peace and blessings be upon him then mentioned the Smoke, Dajjal, Beast, Rising of the Sun from the place of it’s setting, the Descent of Isa, Ya’juj Ma’juj, Three Landslides, one in the East , one in the West and one in the Arabian Peninsula after that a Fire would spread from Yemen and drive the people to their place of gathering.’ (Muslim)

This book written by the Ulama of the Institute is a concise summary of only the major events leading up to the Day of Judgement. Each of the following signs: Mahdi, Dajjal, Descension of Isa, Ya’juj Ma’juj, Landslides, Smoke, Rising of the Sun from the east, Beast and the Fire are explained in detail. The supporting evidences are written at the end of every section and have been taken from various authentic Hadith collections.

All Praises belong to Allah, Lord of all the world.

One Response to Major Signs before the Day of Judgement

  1. Great book. Highly authentic and knowledgeable . Signs of Qyamah is to show you people in which direction all of Muslim communities are moving. what are they doing. what are they spreading to others. what kind of misconception are rumoring all around the world regarding Islam, Quran Prophet and ALLAH. This is the only time when we all Muslim need to be united and then make every thing in order. If we ignore or neglect this time then no force can save Muslims from big troubles.
