All praises are due to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May Allah send the best blessings and most perfect peace upon the master of the messengers, our master Muhammad, his pure family and noble Companions. May Allah be pleased with the masters of the Tabi`een, the right acting scholars, the Mujtahid imams and upon all those who follow them until the Day of Judgment.

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace was once asked by the Angel Jibril: “Inform me about the Hour?” He, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:

The one questioned knows no more about it than the questioner.” He then said, “Inform me of its signs?” He, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: “It is when the slave-girl gives birth to her mistress and when you see the barefooted, naked, destitute herders of sheep building lofty buildings.” In another narration on the authority of Abu Hurayra who said that the man asked:

“When is the Hour?”

He, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

“The one questioned knows no more about it than the questioner. However, I will inform you of its preconditions. When the slave-girl gives birth to her master, then that is among its preconditions. When naked barefooted Bedouin becomes the leader of the people, then that is among its preconditions. When the herders of beasts compete with one another in building lofty buildings, then that is among its preconditions. There are five others and no one knows them accept Allah.”

He then recited:

“Verily with Allah is knowledge of the Hour. He sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. No soul knows in which land it will die. Verily Allah is Knowing Aware.”
