Signs before the
Day of Judgement

What is the Day of
Judgement?
The Prophet (pbuh) said: There are five things which
nobody knows except Allah. (Then he recited the following
verse) ‘Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with God
(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 God is full knowledge and He
is acquainted (with all things)’ (Luqman 31:34). (Bukhari)

Ignorance of Allah – People will have a knowledge, but

Anas ibn Malik said: I shall tell you a hadith which I heard
from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh), and which no-one will
tell you after me. I heard him say, ‘Among the signs of the
Hour will be the disappearance of knowledge and the
appearance of ignorance. Adultery will be prevalent and
the drinking of wine will be common. The number of men
will decrease and the number of women will increase until
there will be fifty women to be looked after by one
man.’ (Bukhari, Muslim)

The Evils which befall the Muslim Ummah
‘Ali ibn Abi Talib said: I heard the Prophet (pbuh) say, ‘If my Ummah
bears 15 traits, tribulation will befall it.’ Someone asked, ‘What are they
O Messenger of Allah?’ He said, ‘When any gain is shared out only the
rich benefit with no benefit to the poor; when a trust becomes a means
of making profit; when paying Zakat becomes a burden; when a man
obeys his wife and disobeys his mother; and treats his friend kindly
whilst shunning his father; when voices are raised in the mosques;
when the leader of a people is the worst of them; when people treat a
man with respect because they fear some evil he may do; when much
wine is drunk; when men wear silk; when female singers and musical
instruments become popular; when the last ones of this ummah curse
the first ones - then let them expect a red wind, or the earth to swallow
them, or to be transformed into animals.’ (Tirmidhi)

Commotion and warfare will break out when Gog and
Magog people destroy everything they come across
Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: Every day, Gog and Magog are
trying to dig a way out through the barrier. When they begin to see sunlight through it, the
one who is in charge of them says, ‘Go back; you can carry on digging tomorrow.’ And
when they come back, the barrier is stronger than it was before. This will continue until
their time comes and Allah wishes to send them forth. They will dig until they begin to see
sunlight, then their in charge will say, ‘Go back; you can carry on digging tomorrow, insha’
Allah.’ In this case he will make an exception by saying insha’ Allah, thus relating the
matter to the Will of Allah. They will return on the following day, and find the hole as they
left it. They will carry on digging and come out against the people. They will drink all the
water, and the people will surround themselves in their large numbers. Gog and Magog
will fire their arrows into the sky and they will fall back to earth with something like blood
on them. Gog and Magog will say, ‘We have defeated the people of earth, and overcome
the people of heaven.’ Then Allah will send a kind of worm in the back of their necks and
they will be killed by it. (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Ahmad)

The Mahdi will appear toward the end of the world to
establish justice and peace on the earth. He will be a
Muslim and will be known as either Muhammad or
Ahmad.
‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: If there
were only one day left for the world, that day would be lengthened until
a man from among my descendants or from among the people of my
household, was sent. His name will be the same as mine and his
father’s name will be the same as my father’s name. He will fill the
earth with justice and fairness, just as it will have been filled with
injustice and oppression. The world will not end until a man of my
household, whose name is the same as mine, holds sway. (Abu
Dawud)

During the lifetime of the Mahdi, a false messiah will
come known as Dajjal (one-eyed with impressive
powers) who will attract many people to worship him
and lead them astray.
The Prophet said: There has never been a Prophet who did not warn
his people against that one-eyed liar. Verily, he is one-eyed and your
Lord is not one-eyed. On his forehead will be written the letters Kaf, Fa,
Ra (Kafir). (Bukhari, Muslim)
