The Final Hour

hadith (2)

The Prohibition Against Strutting With Pride, And Being Amazed With One’s Clothes

Abu Huraira reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said that there was a person who used to walk with pride because of his thick hair and fine mantles. He was made to sink in the earth and he would go on sinking in the earth until the Last Hour would come.

Hadith 2088 a


The Final Hour



Tariq said, “We were sitting with ‘Abdullah when his doorkeeper came and said, ‘The iqama for the prayer has been given.’ He got up and we got up as well and went to the mosque. He saw the people doing ruku’ at the front of the mosque. He said the takbir, bowed, and we went and did the same thing that he had done. Then a man rushed past and said, ‘Peace be upon you, Abu ‘Abdu’r-Rahman.’ He said, ‘Allah has spoken the truth and His Messenger conveyed the Message.’ When we finished the prayer, he returned and went back to is people. We remained sitting in our places, waiting for him until he came out. We said to each other, ‘Which of us will ask him?’ Tariq said, ‘I will ask him,’ and he did so. ‘Abdullah said, ‘From the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who said, “Before the Final Hour people will single out one individual for the greeting, commerce will increase until a woman helps her husband in business, people will sever their links with their relatives, knowledge will spread, false testimony will appear and true testimony will be concealed.”‘”
