Ten Major Signs Of The Day Of Judgement




Day of Judgement or Qayamah is the time where Allah will order the destruction of Earth. The term ‘the day’ means the age and the signs are the symbols that pave a path for the final resurrection day. Though the exact date of the time is known only to Allah.

We don’t have any precise timeline perhaps the same year, perhaps few years. Only Allah knows… But the point being when one of these, the major signs come. The first of them being the coming of Antichrist, the rest shall follow very quickly.

There are many signs of the day of judgement in Islam; major and minor but all these signs show how and when the time will come.
1) The Arrival of Imam Mehdi
About the arrival of Imam Mehdi, the Prophet (Saww) said the following lines ‘One of my descendants created by Allah will come prior to the end of the world. His name will be the same as mine and his father’s name will be the same as my father’s name’.

The world will be full of oppression and tyranny before his visit, but in his time will be fairness. The angel from the cloud from the above his head will say ‘This is Mehdi, listen to what he says’.

He will fight against different enemies of Islam and develop the system of Justice around the world. Before his arrival, there will be so much injustice, bad-doings, and killings of Muslims and overall the system of good actions will be destroyed by the evil-doers.

2) Dajjal Will Come
The most obvious and common signs that most people are told is the arrival of Dajjal. When he will arrive, he will proclaim himself as God. Anyone who trusts him will be an infidel.
The question arises why would people trust him when they are being guided about him? Here the Fitnah of Dajjal works where the mindsets of the population are set in a way that would automatically accept the fact that he is God (God forbid).

Dajjal will have powers that he could order the clouds to rain and the earth to grow vegetation, these powers will make people believe he is God, which in reality would be false signals.
3) The Descent Of Jesus
When Dajjal has arrived and he is claiming to be God, the descent of Prophet Jesus will happen. The son of Mary would descend from the sky with his hands resting on the wings of two angels.

He would then fight with Dajjal and kill him. Also, he will destroy the cross, rescue Muslims from the Yajooj and Majooj and take them to the Mountain of Tur.

According to Jews, the Prophet was killed but it did not happen as Allah saved him and raised him to the heavens. His arrival will be shocking for all those who had believed lies and wrong perceptions.


4) The Emergence Of Yajooj And Majooj
There are many references to the emergence of Yajooj and Majooj. They are locked inside a wall. There is a story related to their existence that at the time of Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s), there was a just king named Zulqarnain.

He would travel around the globe and conquer many countries, on his visit to the North, people told him about two hostile tribes Gog and Magog and requested him to protect them from these tribes. So, Zulqarnain built up an iron wall that they couldn’t penetrate until the doomsday.

So, on doomsday, they will be able to break the wall and come after the people. They will drink all the water, and the people will entrench themselves in their fortresses.

Hazrat Issa will appear on the Earth and save people from their wrath and danger.
  
5) The Smoke Will Appear

The Quran says ‘Wait for the day when smoke appears from the sky’. 

According to Hadith ‘The smoke will come from the Sky and will cover all the world for the 40 days’ It is said that smoke will be like a chill for the believers but will give a hard time to non-believers.

Now, there are a lot of perceptions about what actually smoke will be like. The most common assumption is environmental pollution or an atomic explosion. Whatever the case may be, the result will be one of the signs of the day of judgement in Islam.

6) The Emergence Of Beast
The emergence of the beast is confirmed as the Allah says in Quran ‘And when the word of torment is fulfilled against them, we shall bring out from the Earth, a beast for them, to speak to them because mankind believed not with certainty in Our signs’ (An-Naml: 82)

This verse refers to the beast of the earth who will appear shortly before the Day of Judgment.

The beast is said to hold the handstick of Mousa for believers, and if they really are believers, their faces will shine and illuminate with light. For the non-believers, he will hold the seal of Suleman and when it will touch the non-believer; their face will darken indicating their state of faith.
7) The Sun Will Rise From The West

The rising of the sun from the West is one of three greatly definitive signs of this nature.  Thus, the Prophet said:

“When three things appear faith will not benefit one who has not previously believed or has derived no good from his faith: the rising of the sun in its place of setting, the Dajjaal, and the beast of the earth.”

One of the major signs of Qayamah is the rising of the Sun from the West, which is its setting place. Narrated by Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet (saww) said: ‘The Hour will not come until the Sun has risen from the West.
8) Landslides

Among the major signs of the Day of Judgment are the three landslides that will occur. One will occur in the East, one in the West and one in the Arabian Peninsula. Not much further information has been given concerning these events—and therefore not much can be added.

However, the well-known Hadith exegete Ibn Hajar does note that landslides are a well-known occurrence and have occurred often.

Therefore, he says, it is likely that the nature of these three landslides which will occur shortly before the Day of Judgment will be of a much greater magnitude and severity, setting them apart from what occurs customarily in this world.And God alone knows best.

9) The fire that will gather the people
This is the last of the great signs; of the day of judgement is the eruption of fire from the direction of Yemen, from the bottom of ‘Aden, from the Sea of Hadramawt’. According to Hudhayfah ibn Usayd, the Prophet (Saww) was heard saying ‘The last of them will be a fire which will emerge from Yemen, and will drive the people to the place of their gathering’.

 10) The Kaabah Will Be Destroyed
One of the last signs of the Day of Resurrection is the destruction of the Ka'ba by Zul-Suwayqatayn. He is from Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and will destroy the Ka'ba in order to steal its treasure and Kiswah (Ka'ba's cover).

This destruction will take place at a time when nobody who says “Allah, Allah” will remain in the world; it will not be repaired and visited after that. During the process of Doomsday, nothing will remain stable.
