The Signs from the Islamic Resources 091-100

The Signs from the Islamic Resources 10/12

91. The Decay of Human Relations

The hadiths also mention the destruction of social relations between people:

Verily among the signs of the Last Hour is the greeting [Salaam] is limited to those known only… (Ibn Ahmad Hanbal)

The Hour will not come until hearts become strangers, words become apart, and brothers adhere to other religions.(ad-Daylami)

The Hour will not come until special people, rather than ordinary people, are saluted. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 470)

Breaking ties with kin is among the signs of the Last Hour. (Ibn Ahmad Hanbal)

92. People Value Their Pets More Than Other People

When Doomsday approaches, people will have puppies. They will hold these puppies much dearer than their own children. (al-Tabarani, al-Hakim)

Having love and compassion for animals, as well as admiring the beauties God has granted them, are surely favorable characteristics. However, the event related here is the replacement of love for people with love for animals. This is surely a warped viewpoint.

93. The Decay of Family Relations

Another characteristic will be the disintegration of relationships among families, between friends and neighbors, and the loss of community and spiritual values:

Before the Hour comes; … family ties will be cut… (Ibn Ahmad Hanbal, Musnad)

There would [first] be turmoil for a person in regard to his family, his property, his own self, his children, his neighbors. (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)

The portents of Doomsday [consist of] saying ugly things to one another, mockery, hostility, the severing of relations with relatives, regarding a trustworthy person as a traitor, and trusting a traitor. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, pp. 136-37)

94. Diminished Love and Respect among People

Young people will be rebellious, and love and respect between young people and adults will deteriorate:

When the old have no compassion for the young, when the young show no respect to the old … when children grow angry … judgment is at hand. (Narrated by Umar [r.a.], Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 480)

Respect for the old and compassion for the young will disappear. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 140)

95. Weakening of the Family Structure

The hadiths also state that divorce and the number of illegitimate children will increase:

Divorce will be a daily occurrence. (Allamah Safarini, Ahwal Yawm al-Qiyamah)

There will be an abundance of illegitimate children. (Muntakhab Kanz al-`Ummaal)

96. Increase in Worldly Ambition

Influenced by materialism and their worldview, people will be excessively attached to this world and forget about the Afterlife:

Stinginess will dominate…(Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)

… Niggardliness will be cast into people's hearts… (Sahih Bukhari and Abu Dawud)

97. Prevalence of Hypocrisy and Ostentation

... on that day, people will not abstain from hypocrisy, and it will not embarrass people (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 458, no. 835)

Hypocrisy will prevail; hypocrisy and ostentation will not be a matter of shame. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 470)

98. Spread of Cursing and Abuse

The End Times is a period of widespread cursing and abuse among people. This situation is expressed as follows:

In the Last Days, there will be such people, who, when they meet, curse and abuse each other instead of greeting [with salaam]. (Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti, Durre-Mansoor)

The community of the faithful will be on a favorable path until they encounter three things: Until goodness disappears, until immoral children grow in number, and until essekkarun appears amongst them… They asked what is essekkarun? They answered, a generation that will emerge in the End Times, among whom greetings will be regarded as vile oaths. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, pp. 141-42)

99. Spread of Forgery and Bribery

In the End Times, forgery and bribery in business life will become common and will continue to spread, for:

Verily a time will reach the people, when the believer would not be concerned over what he earned from money, whether it is from halal [lawful] or haram [unlawful]. (Ibn Ahmad Hanbal)

When Doomsday approaches... people will cheat in measures and weights. (Ramuz al Hadith, vol. 33, p.7)

When people cheat in measures and weights. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 139)

Taking bribery... is among the signs of Doomsday. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 454)

100. Increase of Gossip and Derision

Another characteristic will be the increased level of gossip and mockery of other people:

As Judgment draws near... the most respected people of the age will be flatterers and sycophants. (at-Tabarani )

There will be an abundance of critics, tale-carriers, backbiters, and taunters in society.(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanz al-`Ummaal)

The Last Hour will not arrive until people come forth who make a living with their tongues, just as cows eat with their tongues. (Tirmidhi)

A time will come when a man will remain among his people but live in fear of being derided. (ad-Daylami)

However, God informs us that gossip and derision are evil, and commands believers to avoid them. One verse reads:

O you who believe! People should not ridicule others who may be better than themselves, nor should any women ridicule other women who may be better than themselves. And do not find fault with one another or insult each other with derogatory nicknames. How evil it is to have a name for evil conduct after coming to faith! Those people who do not turn from it are wrongdoers. O you who believe! Avoid most suspicion. Indeed some suspicion is a crime. And do not spy and do not backbite one another. Would any of you like to eat his brother's dead flesh? No, you would hate it. And be aware of God. (Surat al-Hujurat, 49:11-12)
