When the power comes in the hands of the unfit, then Wait for the Hour (Hadith Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

Allah created this universe in a state of balance and coherence. Imagine the chaos if earth losing its gravity or the sun starts to come towards or away from us. Likewise, when societies and communities are headed by people who are unfit to run the affairs, those communities and nations lose balance and become incoherent and unmanageable. Such will be the state of our worldly life when the Hour will be struck for we could not manage peace and justice on earth.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ has warned that the Hour is nearing when the world will be ruled by the unjust and justice will be lost forever. This Hadith is mentioned in Sahi al-Bukhārī  (Book 3 - Knowledge /  كتاب   العلم / Chapter 2: Whoever is asked about knowledge while he is busy in some conversation, so he finished talking and then answered the questioner / باب مَنْ سُئِلَ عِلْمًا وَهُوَ مُشْتَغِلٌ فِي حَدِيثِهِ فَأَتَمَّ الْحَدِيثَ ثُمَّ أَجَابَ السَّائِلَ‏) as Hadith 59, given herein under:

Narrated by Abu Huraira:
While the Prophet (ﷺ) was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, "When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?" Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) continued his talk, so some people said that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) had not heard it. When the Prophet (ﷺ) finished his speech, he said, "Where is the questioner, who inquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?" The Bedouin said, "I am here, O Allah's Apostle ." Then the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday)." The Bedouin said, "How will that be lost?" The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)"

Arabic Text:
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سِنَانٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا فُلَيْحٌ، ح وَحَدَّثَنِي إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ الْمُنْذِرِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ فُلَيْحٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي قَالَ، حَدَّثَنِي هِلاَلُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ بَيْنَمَا النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي مَجْلِسٍ يُحَدِّثُ الْقَوْمَ جَاءَهُ أَعْرَابِيٌّ فَقَالَ مَتَى السَّاعَةُ فَمَضَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُحَدِّثُ، فَقَالَ بَعْضُ الْقَوْمِ سَمِعَ مَا قَالَ، فَكَرِهَ مَا قَالَ، وَقَالَ بَعْضُهُمْ بَلْ لَمْ يَسْمَعْ، حَتَّى إِذَا قَضَى حَدِيثَهُ قَالَ ‏"‏ أَيْنَ ـ أُرَاهُ ـ السَّائِلُ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ هَا أَنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ فَإِذَا ضُيِّعَتِ الأَمَانَةُ فَانْتَظِرِ السَّاعَةَ ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ كَيْفَ إِضَاعَتُهَا قَالَ ‏"‏ إِذَا وُسِّدَ الأَمْرُ إِلَى غَيْرِ أَهْلِهِ فَانْتَظِرِ السَّاعَةَ ‏"‏‏.

The  world we live in has never been in peace. The demagogues have ruled this world more than the honest and the just. Many a great civilizations have vanished when the justice was robbed by the rulers who were unjust and intolerant. Their remains are an eye opener for us, provided we ponder over the causes of their decline and destruction. 

We are not good either today. Those countries who have power muscles are hellbent to create chaos in our world and causing unrest and destruction all over. So long as injustice prevails, the world can never be at peace. Unfortunately, instead of opting for peace, we moving to our self destruction as warned by Prophet Prophet Muhammad ﷺ more than fourteen centuries ago. Let the sanity prevails, lest we call for the Hour, the Doomsday, earlier than before.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

Beware of Times when Vile and Base men will control the affairs of the people (Hadith Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

Although no one other than Allah know what is unseen by men or what is going to happen in the futures, prophets are given a limited insight into the things to happen in future. And the prophets in turn warn the people of the time to be watchful of times when something bad is likely to  happen.

We share such a warning by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and if we look around we would find same thing prevalent in our times of which the revered prophet warned us of.

This warning is mentioned in Sunan Ibn Majah /  Book 36 on Tribulations كتاب الفتن / Chapter # 24 Hard times/ باب شِدَّةِ الزَّمَانِ) as Hadith number # 4036 under:

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
There will come to the people years of treachery, when the liar will be regarded as honest, and the honest man will be regarded as a liar; the traitor will be regarded as faithful, and the faithful man will be regarded as a traitor; and the Ruwaibidah will decide matters.’ It was said: ‘Who are the Ruwaibidah?’ He said: ‘Vile and base men who control the affairs of the people.’”

Arabic Text:‏
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْمَلِكِ بْنُ قُدَامَةَ الْجُمَحِيُّ، عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ أَبِي الْفُرَاتِ، عَنِ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ "‏ سَيَأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ سَنَوَاتٌ خَدَّاعَاتٌ يُصَدَّقُ فِيهَا الْكَاذِبُ وَيُكَذَّبُ فِيهَا الصَّادِقُ وَيُؤْتَمَنُ فِيهَا الْخَائِنُ وَيُخَوَّنُ فِيهَا الأَمِينُ وَيَنْطِقُ فِيهَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ قِيلَ وَمَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ قَالَ الرَّجُلُ التَّافِهُ فِي أَمْرِ الْعَامَّةِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

Although this hadith is graded as Hasan (Darussalam), yet we are sharing it for the its contents perfectly match with the character traits of men of position of our present times. We witness people of treacherous nature in corridors of position and sycophant replacing the faithful who support the vile and base people holding positions of deciding fate of people. We see opportunists making their way sidelining the honest and faithful.

We are unlucky to be seeing the times of which  Prophet Muhammad ﷺ warned us more than fourteen centuries ago. Let us not fall into the trap of these people and keep our faith strong and continue to steer our lives as per dictates of Islam.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door.

Beware of Charlatans (Warning by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

Prophets and messengers of Allah were blessed with special insight into some of the happenings that would take place after them and they always warned their people to be beware of times when the lies will be twisted in such words that these will be taken as true. Those will be the times when people will lose sight of the truth and will follow the charlatans who would become their pied pipers, leading them to chaos and leaving them disarray and confused.

A charlatan is one who pretends to possess knowledge he or she lacks. From the 16th century Italian ciarlatano "a quack," the usage of charlatan has not shifted much. Other words for charlatan are impostor, cheat, or pretender. Charlatans often make grandiose claims without evidence, use high-pressure tactics to get people to act quickly, and avoid scrutiny or verification of their claims. They may also lack credentials or qualifications in the areas they claim expertise.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, like all other prophets, warned of presence of charlatan in ranks of believers who would mislead them with their sugar quoted eloquence, though they themselves be devoid of any true knowledge.

This Hadith is quoted in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim: Introduction/Chapter(#4) The Weak Narrators, Liars, and Those Whose Hadith are Avoided - باب النَّهْىِ عَنِ الرِّوَايَةِ، عَنِ الضُّعَفَاءِ، وَالاِحْتِيَاطِ، فِي تَحَمُّلِهَا   as Hadith number # 7 quoted herein under:

Harmalah bin Yahyā bin Abd Allah bin Harmalah bin Imrān at-Tujībī narrated to me, he said Ibn Wahb narrated to us, he said Abū Shurayh narrated to me that he heard Sharāhīl bin Yazīd saying ‘Muslim bin Yasār informed me that he heard Abā Hurayrah saying, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, said:
There will be in the end of time charlatan liars coming to you with narrations that you nor your fathers heard, so beware of them lest they misguide you and cause you tribulations’.’

Arabic Text:
وَحَدَّثَنِي حَرْمَلَةُ بْنُ يَحْيَى بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ حَرْمَلَةَ بْنِ عِمْرَانَ التُّجِيبِيُّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو شُرَيْحٍ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ شَرَاحِيلَ بْنَ يَزِيدَ، يَقُولُ أَخْبَرَنِي مُسْلِمُ بْنُ يَسَارٍ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ يَكُونُ فِي آخِرِ الزَّمَانِ دَجَّالُونَ كَذَّابُونَ يَأْتُونَكُمْ مِنَ الأَحَادِيثِ بِمَا لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا أَنْتُمْ وَلاَ آبَاؤُكُمْ فَإِيَّاكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ لاَ يُضِلُّونَكُمْ وَلاَ يَفْتِنُونَكُمْ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

Today, if we look around their hoard of information is uploaded on social media which in fact is misinformation and disinformation which is utterly false and misleading. Yet the use of social media, the graphics and references to Islamic literature which when tried to be traced out are never found. Or words are twisted to give them entirely new meanings to mislead the believers. Already there are some Muslims who have fallen to the machination of the charlatans and have started to doubt even their own faith.

There are many imams and pseudo scholars, specially in Indian sub continent who are source of spreading false and misleading information about Islam. And instead of teaching them to follow teachings of Qur'an and Sunnah, they have made some long dead scholars and Muslim preachers as their role models and asking their followers to follow their role models rather than Allah and His Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. They have also made many false hadiths to mislead people and make them believe what they want them to.

So, my dear readers, please check and recheck the authenticity of any information related to Islam and hadiths / sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ before accepting these as true. Already a lot of weak / daif hadiths are quoted to mislead others. I come across many such hadiths and unless the authenticity is ensured, I do not post. May Allah help us to judge and differentiate between the truth and the lie. Ameen.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door.

Seek forgiveness from whom you have wronged for its requital on Judgement Day may be very heavy

Our worldly life is awesome for here we do not feel the pain we have caused on others by our words, actions or attitude. And not everyone is in a position to repay the same coin to make good the loss incurred on him.

But then those who are least forgiving when harming others are generally unaware of the requital they may have to undergo when the most superior of Allah will be established on the Judgment Day and none will be let go unless he pays the full compensation for the harm, he did to others in one's worldly life. 

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in one of his Hadiths have warned such fearless sinners of the requital they will have to undergo on the Judgement Day. This Hadith is mentioned Jami` at-Tirmidhi  (37 - Chapters on the description of the Day of Judgement / كتاب صفة القيامة والرقائق والورع عن رسول الله صلى الله / Chapter # 2 What Has Been Related About the Matter of the Reckoning and Requital / باب مَا جَاءَ فِي شَأْنِ الْحِسَابِ وَالْقِصَاصِ  ) as Hadith number # 2419:

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said:
"May Allah have mercy upon a servant who has wronged his brother in his honor or his wealth, then he comes to him to seek his pardon before (his right) is taken, when he has no Dinar nor Dirham. Then if he has any rewards, it will be taken from his rewards, and if he has no rewards, then some of his (brothers) bad deeds will be levied upon him."

[Abu 'Eisa said:] This Hadith is Sahih [Gharib as a narration of Sa'eed Al-Maqburi]. Malik bin Anas also reported it from Sa'eed A]-Maqburl, from Abu Hurairah from the Prophet SAW, and it is similar in meaning.

Arabic Text:
حَدَّثَنَا هَنَّادٌ، وَنَصْرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الْكُوفِيُّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا الْمُحَارِبِيُّ، عَنْ أَبِي خَالِدٍ، يَزِيدَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَبِي أُنَيْسَةَ، عَنْ سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ عَبْدًا كَانَتْ لأَخِيهِ عِنْدَهُ مَظْلَمَةٌ فِي عِرْضٍ أَوْ مَالٍ فَجَاءَهُ فَاسْتَحَلَّهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُؤْخَذَ وَلَيْسَ ثَمَّ دِينَارٌ وَلاَ دِرْهَمٌ فَإِنْ كَانَتْ لَهُ حَسَنَاتٌ أُخِذَ مِنْ حَسَنَاتِهِ وَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ لَهُ حَسَنَاتٌ حَمَّلُوا عَلَيْهِ مِنْ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ غَرِيبٌ مِنْ حَدِيثِ سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ ‏.‏ وَقَدْ رَوَاهُ مَالِكُ بْنُ أَنَسٍ عَنْ سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم نَحْوَهُ ‏.‏
Grade:  Sahih (Darussalam)

This Hadith gives out a clear warning to all of us who have wronged someone in this life to go and seek forgiveness and make the damages good before angel of death gets us. For if we do not do this, on the Day of Judgement, we will not be robbed of our goodies (if any) to make the requital possible. And if our goodies fall short, then the sins of the aggrieved will be taken away and added into our account to balance out the balance sheet. So, time is now, which is running fast, to seek forgiveness from all those whom we have wronged, lest we are left with nothing good on Judgement Day - and our punishment will be very severe. May Allah help us do this now before time runs out. Ameen.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

Who will be among the worst creatures on the Day of Resurrection (Hadith Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

There can never be two captains of a ship for the pushes and pulls among them can lead to major disasters. Likewise, the universe cannot be run by two Gods for the entire solar and celestial system may collapse if two Gods are managing the universe. It is for this very reason, we have Only One God, the unchallenged All Mighty. 

Shirk (associating any worldly deity with One True God) thus is the biggest crime that man can do with regard to the God. But man, wo is ever so ungrateful to the One and Only God, could not resist make worldly deities, which interestingly are creations of One God, and has been worshiping them. He even drew their portraits and hung them in places of worship and even homes. And when these worldly deities die, their graves become places of worship and reverence.

This is something that is most disliked by The God and on the Day of Resurrection, they will taste the severest of Godly punishment. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in one of his hadiths had indicated the people who will into this category. This Hadith is mentioned in Sahi al-Bukhārī  (Book 63 -   Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar) /  كتاب مناقب الأنصار / Chapter 37: he emigration to Ethiopia/ باب هِجْرَةِ الْحَبَشَةِ) as Hadith 3873, given herein under:

Narrated by `Aisha: Um Habiba and Um Salama mentioned a church they had seen in Ethiopia and in the church, there were pictures. When they told the Prophet (ﷺ) of this, he said, "Those people are such that if a pious man amongst them died, they build a place of worship over his grave and paint these pictures in it. Those people will be Allah's worst creatures on the Day of Resurrection. "

Arabic Text:
حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها أَنَّ أُمَّ، حَبِيبَةَ وَأُمَّ سَلَمَةَ ذَكَرَتَا كَنِيسَةً رَأَيْنَهَا بِالْحَبَشَةِ، فِيهَا تَصَاوِيرُ، فَذَكَرَتَا لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ‏ "‏ إِنَّ أُولَئِكَ إِذَا كَانَ فِيهِمُ الرَّجُلُ الصَّالِحُ فَمَاتَ بَنَوْا عَلَى قَبْرِهِ مَسْجِدًا، وَصَوَّرُوا فِيهِ تِيكَ الصُّوَرَ، أُولَئِكَ شِرَارُ الْخَلْقِ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ‏"‏‏.‏

Now if we read the Hadith carefully, we would find not only non-Muslims but many a Muslims around the world are committing this sin. We see Muslims bowing and prostrating in front of graves of saints and hanging their photos and worship them. This happens so because of weak faith, because of which opportunists mislead them and entice them to worship graves. 

So, my brothers and sisters in Islam, do not follow traditions of pre-Islam era when pagans of Arabia worshiped idols and graves - a practice still being followed by many non-Muslims, and sadly many Muslims too. Let us cleanse our faith from all such sinful acts and worship none but One True God, we call Allah.

May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.

Repent! Before the last time to repent arrives (Hadith Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

Much has been written by us in our previous posts about forgiveness and repentance. Today, we share a Hadith attributed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ which warns the believers about the last time that they can repent, for thereafter there will be no repentance accepted by Allah.

This Hadith is quoted in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim: Book (#48) Pertaining to the Remembrance of Allah, Supplication, Repentance and Seeking Forgiveness - كتاب الذكر والدعاء والتوبة والاستغفار   / Chapter # 12 It Is Recommend to Pray for Forgiveness a Great Deal / باب اسْتِحْبَابِ الاِسْتِغْفَارِ وَالاِسْتِكْثَارِ مِنْهُ ‏‏‏) as Hadith number # 2703 as under:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
"He who seeks repentance (from the Lord) before the rising of the sun from the west (before the Day of Resurrection), Allah turns to him with Mercy."

Arabic Text:
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو خَالِدٍ يَعْنِي سُلَيْمَانَ بْنَ حَيَّانَ، ح وَحَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ نُمَيْرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، ح وَحَدَّثَنِي أَبُو سَعِيدٍ الأَشَجُّ، حَدَّثَنَا حَفْصٌ، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ غِيَاثٍ - كُلُّهُمْ عَنْ هِشَامٍ، ح وَحَدَّثَنِي أَبُو خَيْثَمَةَ، زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ - وَاللَّفْظُ لَهُ - حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ، بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ حَسَّانَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِيرِينَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ مَنْ تَابَ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ مِنْ مَغْرِبِهَا تَابَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

It is said that the Day of Resurrection will be established when the sun will rise from the West. And when this happens, the entire geometry and geology of the spatial object will reverse, resulting in the destruction of the earth we live on. Who knows when this will happen: This could be millions and billions of years from now - OR EVEN THE NEXT SECOND.

Since it will happen anytime in future commencing right next second, believers have been warned to repent of their sins and seek Divine forgiveness before time runs out. Once the final phase of destruction of the earth sets into motion and man will witness the beginning of the end, no repentance will be accepted for he has been given enough time and warned enough. 

So, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, do not wait to repent if you sin. Repent immediately with utmost sincerity and resolve not to repeat the evil action. Remember, when time runs out, one's ledger book closes and is sealed. Remember, it is not only the rising of the sun from the west that one should wait for, it could be your death too which can occur any time from now. When one sees the angel of death, his time is already over and then there remains not a fraction of second to repent. So, keep repenting and seek Divine forgiveness as many times as you can during the day and night. Let us keep invoking mercy of Allah as much as we can so that He, the Al-Ghafur (الغفور) - The Forgiving, The Pardoner, Ar Rahim (الرحيم) - The Most Merciful and At-Tawwab (التواب) - The Acceptor of Repentance, forgives us and makes us a contender for Jannah. Aameen.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏

Collection of Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ about Warning and Cautions

A few days ago, we shared a post about collection of Hadiths attributed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ on the specific subject of Rewards. Today we share a collection of Hadiths that hinge on an opposite theme, that is Warnings and Cautions. These warnings and cautions are meant to forewarn the believers so that they do not unknowingly fall into trap of the Evil and commit acts that may harm them not only in this world, for such acts are not at all liked by our Creator, what to talk of the society we live in, but also in the life after death.

Many a man object to such notions for they think there is no life after death and such warnings and cautions are gimmicks of religious men to take them away from merrymaking and enjoying a boundless life. But what if there turns out to be a life which will be a haven of happiness for those who did good and an utter misery for those who mocked the prophets and the religions.

Let us see which are the acts from which Prophet Muhammad ﷺ has warned and cautioned us and try not to go near these, lest we have to pay a very heavy price for these in our next life after death:
This is the beginning of this page. We will keep adding more Hadiths to it in time.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏
