I followed it [a quotel with what was transmitted in the book al-Yawaqit al-jawahir of Imam al-Sha'rani (may Allah be pleased with them). - Sheikh Yusuf Al-Nabhani
Allah (the Exalted) says, "The Hour draws near" - (Qur'an 54:1), which refers to the Day of Judgement. The Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) said, whilst pointing with his index and middle fingers, "The time of my advent and the Hour are like these two fingers" (Bukhari). The Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) enumerated numerous "signs" ('alamat or ashrat), both "major" (kubra) and "minor" (sughra), that herald the Hour, and encouraged preparing for it with good deeds. Accordingly, Islamic scholars, through the generations, have collected and transmitted these narrations.
These signs include the spread of societal corruption of various kinds, as well as the emergence of the Imposter (Dajjal) and the righteous leader called the Mandi, the return of 'Isa (upon him be peace), and the various stirring natural events (such as earthquakes, land cave-ins, high winds and fierce fire, and the rising of the sun from the west) which lead to the gathering of humanity for the Day of Judgement.
This short treatise includes the narrations for these events. Included is forty hadiths about the end of time and forty hadith about obeying the leader both complied Sheikh Yusuf.
It contains three books:
- 1. Major and minor signs
- 2. Forty hadith about the day of judgement
- 3. Forty hadith about obeying the leader
