Hadith on Tribulations: Widespread killing and sinfulness will be an affliction near the end of time

March 11, 2011

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Time will pass rapidly, good deeds will decrease, miserliness will increase, afflictions will appear, and there will be much upheaval.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, what is upheaval?” The Prophet said, “It is killing.”

In another narration, the Prophet said, “The Hour will not be established until knowledge disappears, earthquakes occur often, time passes quickly, tribulations emerge, turmoil of killing will increase, and there will be so much wealth among you it overflows.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَتَقَارَبُ الزَّمَانُ وَيُقْبَضُ الْعِلْمُ وَتَظْهَرُ الْفِتَنُ وَيُلْقَى الشُّحُّ وَيَكْثُرُ الْهَرْجُ قَالُوا وَمَا الْهَرْجُ قَالَ الْقَتْلُ

6652 صحيح البخاري كِتَاب الْفِتَنِ بَاب ظُهُورِ الْفِتَنِ

157 صحيح مسلم كِتَاب الْعِلْمِ باب رَفْعِ الْعِلْمِ وَقَبْضِهِ وَظُهُورِ الْجَهْلِ وَالْفِتَنِ فِي آخِرِ الزَّمَانِ

وفي رواية أخرى قال لَا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يُقْبَضَ الْعِلْمُ وَتَكْثُرَ الزَّلَازِلُ وَيَتَقَارَبَ الزَّمَانُ وَتَظْهَرَ الْفِتَنُ وَيَكْثُرَ الْهَرْجُ وَهُوَ الْقَتْلُ الْقَتْلُ حَتَّى يَكْثُرَ فِيكُمْ الْمَالُ فَيَفِيضَ
