Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (Sallallahualayhiwasallam) said that: ”The Hour of Qiyaamah will not come except when the cross is worshipped inside the Mihraab of the Masaajid.”
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
I am not aware of such a hadith with those specific words. However, there is a Hadith that alludes to the meaning that some people from this Ummah will start worshipping idols.
Thawban (may Allah be pleased with him) says that the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “The Hour shall not be established until tribes of my Ummah unite with the idolaters, and until they worship idols.”
Only Allah knows best
