I wish to raise before you the preparation for that day and the few signs that will occur regarding the coming of that day. Remember one thing, Allah subhana wata’ala says that indeed when the fixed and prescribed time of Allah regarding yourselves and regarding anything and everything – when it comes it will not be delayed. When the fixed hour of anyone comes, they will not be able to bring it or to delay it even by a split moment or to bring it forward even by a split moment. Your time is written, my time is written. Don’t be fooled, every breath you are taking is one breath closer to that time.
The signs of (day of) Qiyamah (last day) are many, some of them are good, some of them are bad. When we say some of them are good, we mean they are encouraging on their own but they are worth being concerned about and worth being pondering over. When it comes to discussing them and connecting them to Qiyamah. Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam’s coming was already a sign of Qiyamah. He said that I am been sent as close to Qiyamah as this and he pointed with the two fingers. No other nabi (prophet) could do that because each nabi was sent and another nabi was going to come after him. But when Rasulullah shallallahu alaihi wasallam was sent, who was going to come after him? No other nabi (prophet). He said that I am the final messenger and there is going to be no messenger after me. Anyone coming to you telling you that I am a messenger of Allah, they are lying. But if they tell you I am a messenger of Allah subhana wata’ala, they are speaking the truth. But if someone comes to you and says I am a nabi as is happening today, then indeed they they are lying, we need to stay far away from them.
