I want to know more on the signs of Qiyamah. Could you tell me some of the major signs and could you please recommend me a book on this subject. Jazak Allah.
In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
There are many major and minor signs of that will occur before the Day of Judgment (qiyamah). Many of the minor signs have occurred and continue to do so. All the Prophets informed their people of the signs of Qiyamah. Our beloved Prophet (Allah bless him & give him peace), being the last Prophet and knowing that Qiyamat will come upon this very Ummah, explained clearly and in detail the signs of the final hour, which have been recorded in many Hadith collections.
Some of the major signs are:
1) The coming of Imam Mehdi (Allah bless him)
2) The emergence of Dajjal
3) The dissention and return of Sayyiduna Esa (peace be upon him)
4) The emergence of Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog & Magog)
5) The smoke
6) Rising of the sun from the West
7) The beast
For more details on this topic in the English language, you may refer to the booklet titled ‘Major Signs before the Day of Judgment’, compiled by my dear friend Shaykh Ahmad Ali, who is a graduate from the famous Darul Uloom in Bury, UK.
