Signs of the Last day

ZamZam Academy Content

This new series is based on Muhammad Barzanji’s (d. 1103) Al-Isha’a fi Ashrat al-Sa’a and a few other works. We will first cover the “minor” signs that have passed and these include the prophecies foretold by the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace). This will be followed by the “minor” signs which are yet to occur and the major signs which have been prophesied. The minor signs in this context refer to those that do not neccessarily have a global manifestation and appear at different times and in different areas in varying intensities (like disobedience of parents, prevalence of dancing women) or relate to specific incidences that occured in specific places (like the historic fire at Madina Munawwara). The Major signs, on the other hand, like the emergence of the Antichrist (Dajjal) , Gog Magog (Yajuj Majuj), and the sun rising from the west are said to be global occurences to affect everyone. Barzanji’s work is one of the more comprehensive works on this subject.

The signs covered thus far and uploaded are the martyrdom of ‘Umar, the martyrdom of ‘Uthman  (may Allah be pleased with them), and the Camel Incident (Waq’at al-Jamal).
