Minor Signs (Fitna) Before The Judgment Day: Part 2

by | Oct 25, 2010

The Day of Judgement is part of the Belief in Islam. Every Muslim has to believe in Judgement Day and the Last Hour or the Final Hour signs. That is why every Prophet warned His people of the Day of Resurrection. But the knowledge of the Day of Judgement is with Allah alone. However, certain events are going to take place before the last hour. These events are known as the Fitna (Evils) of the Day of Resurrection. Our Prophet (P.B.U.H), being the Last Prophet and knowing that Doomsday is to come on this very Ummah as well, clearly explained the Major and Minor signs before the Qiyamah. The first few signs are described in the previous post: Minor Signs (Fitna) before Judgment Day.
In this Post rest of the signs are explained:

11. A person will wish for his death:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported Prophet (P.B.U.H) as saying:

“By Him, in Whose hand is my life, the world would not come to an end until a person would pass by a grave, would roll over it and express the desire that he should be in the place of the occupant of that grave not because of religious reasons but because of this calamity.” [Muslim]

12. Collapse of Moral values:

We should look at the current happenings in the whole world. The way mainstream influencers are sweeping moral values. 

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“The Hour will not come until there will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse.” (Sahih Bukhari)

13. Adultery will spread:

“The Last Hour will not be established until they [wicked people] commit adultery on the roads [public ways].” (Ibn Hibban and al-Bazzar)

14. Fatal diseases will widespread:

Awf Ibn Malik (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“O Awf ibn Malik! Shall I tell you six signs preceding Doomsday?” Awf said: “What are they, O Prophet?” He (P.B.U.H) said: “Two fatal diseases, such as cholera and anthrax, will spread among you.” (Sahih Bukhari)

15. People will commit suicides:

This is explained in the Book of Tafsir as follows:

“People will kill themselves.  And mischief will prevail all over the world.” (Ibn Kathir, An-Nihaya, vol.1, p. 131)

16. People will kill each other for no reason:

Abu Hurayra (R.A) narrated that Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“People will see such days that the killer will not know why he kills, nor the innocent why they are slain.’ He was asked: ‘How will this be?’ He replied: ‘It is haraj [killing]. Both killer and killed are in the flames.” (Muslim)

17. Increase in Earthquakes:

Who has forgotten the earthquakes of the past 3 years incurring from place to place around the world? Those were, however, the signs of Qayamah.

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“The Day of Resurrection will not be established until earthquakes will be very frequent.” (Bukhari)

18. Lightning and Thunderbolt:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“Thunderbolts will increase so much as the Final Hour approaches that when a man comes to a people. He will ask, “Who among you was struck by a thunderbolt this morning?” And they will say, “So and so and so and so was struck.” (Ahmad)

19. Quran and Hadith will be read but not followed:

Ziyad bin Labaid (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“It would happen near the Last Hour when the knowledge is taken away.” I asked: “Allah’s Messenger, how would the knowledge become extinct while we recite the Quran? And we would teach it to our sons and then our descendants would teach it to their sons till the Day of Resurrection?” He replied: “Do these Jews and the Christians not recite the Torah and the Bible without acting upon [the dictates] that are mentioned in them?.”(Sunan Ibn Majah)

In Another Hadith, the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“The Ummah will experience a time when people will recite the Quran. But it will not go further than their throats [into their hearts].” (Sahih Bukhari)

20. Muslims will take pride in following the non-Muslims:

The worldly fame is taking over. Quick fame is easy to achieve by non-muslims nowadays. Social media influencers, television or film actors, or people from any professional who appear in front of viewers with cocky attitudes influence weak minds. It is resulting in masses following trends set by non-muslims and infidels.

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“I swear that you also will follow the footsteps of the nations that preceded you [e.g., Jews and Christians].”. (Tirmidhi)

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“Surely you will follow the ways of those nations that were before you. Span by span and cubit by cubit [inch by inch], so much so that even if they entered a lizard’s hole, you would follow them.” (Bukhari)

21. People will sell their religion for small worldly goods:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“A man will wake up as a believer. And be an unbeliever by nightfall. People will sell their religion for a small amount of worldly goods.” (Ahmad)

22. Quran recitation for personal benefits:

AlQuran affirms that

“Let him who reads the Quran ask [his reward] from Allah. Because in the End Times many people will read it and seek their reward from other people.” ((Tirmidhi)

23. Faith in horoscopes:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“The Hour will come when people will believe in the stars and reject Qadar [the Divine Decree of destiny]” (Al-Haythami, Kitab al-Fitan)

24. Treacheries and tricks will be abundant:

Narrated by Abu Huraira (R.A) that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“Soon years containing treacheries and tricks will come. A liar will be declared true in them and a true man will be declared a liar; a treacherous will be designated as trustworthy and a trustworthy as a treacherous.” (Ibn Majah)


“In the End Times, people will be carrying out their trade. But there will hardly be a trustworthy person.”(Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)

These are a few minor signs of the Day of Resurrection.  The first ten signs were explained in the previous post: Minor Signs (Fitna) before Judgment Day.

May Allah save us from the afflictions that have appeared and from the one about to emerge. Ameen.
