On the Most Evil

27 Dec

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Islam will wear out as embroidery on a garment wears out, until no one will know what fasting, prayer, (pilgrimage) rites and charity are. The Quran will disappear in one night, and not one verse of it will be left on earth. And there will be some people left, old men and old women who will say, ‘We saw our fathers saying these words: la ilaha illa Allah, so we say them too.’”

“Silah asked Hudhayfah, ‘What will saying la ilaha illa Allah do for them when they do not know what prayer, fasting, (pilgrimage) rites and charity are?’ Hudhayfah ignored him; then Silah repeated his question three times, and each time Hudhayfah ignored him. Finally he answered, ‘O Silah, it will save them from Hell,’ and said it three times.” [The Chapters on Tribulations: Sunan Ibn Majah]

This indicates that in the last days, knowledge will be taken from the people, and even the Quran will disappear from the Mushafs and from people’s hearts. People will be left without knowledge. Only old people will tell them that they used to hear people saying la ilaha illa Allah; and they will repeat it to feel close to Allah. So it will give them some blessing, even if they do not have any good deeds or beneficial knowledge. Knowledge will be taken away from men and ignorance will increase during the last days. Ignorance and misguidance will increase until the end of time, as in the hadith of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “The Hour will not come upon anyone who says, ‘Allah, Allah’; it will only come upon the most evil of men.”
