Is the following Hadith authentic and what is meant by ‘Qaynat’?
Some of the signs of Qiyamah are: Al qaynat, musical instruments, alcohol and the use of silk products [by men]”
These signs of Qiyamah are recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi with a weak chain (Hadith: 2210) and other Hadith collections. The narration is corroborated and suitable to quote for topics of this nature.
See another version of this Hadith here.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
