Signs of the Day of Judgement
Fatwa No: 82276


Please inform me about the major and minor signs of the Day of Judgement.


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and Blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

The signs of the Day of Judgment are of two kinds: 1 – The lesser signs. 2 – The greater signs. The first one began from the period of the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). The latter would appear close to the Day of Judgment. Splitting of the moon in two portions was real, and what you mentioned in your question that the camels will no longer be used as a means of transport … and so on, is not correct. If it is proved, it will be among the minor signs not the greater ones. Here are some of the lesser signs of the Day of Judgment. 1 – Muslims will defeat the Byzantines, conquer the Constantinople and capture Rome. 2 – Very high buildings will be built. 3 –Islamic knowledge will disappear and the ignorance will appear. 4 – Killing, adultery will become wide spread. 5 – The number of men will decrease and the number of women will increase until there will be 50 women to be looked after by one man. 6 – Islam will become strange as it was in its early stages. 7– The retreating of Euphrates will uncover a mountain of gold, for which people will fight. 8 –Two large groups of people will fight one another. 9 – 30 Dajjals (Antichrists) will appear, each one will claim to be the messenger of Allah. 10 – Earthquakes will increase, affliction will appear, and time will pass quickly. 11 – Wealth will increase. 12– Women will be wearing clothes, but they appear to be naked.13 – A maidservant will give birth to her master/mistress. 14 – The Hadith that Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “If my Ummah bear 15 traits…… this Hadith is not correct. 15 – Voices will be raised in mosques. 16 – Women singers and musical instruments will increase.      Here are some of the greater signs: 1 –The Mahdi(lit;the guided one) the Dajjal (Antichrist), the Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Mogog) will appear. 2 –Eesa (Jesus) will descend during the time of Dajjal. 3 – A smoke which will spread over the whole earth. 4 –Ka’bah will be destroyed and its treasure will be taken over. 5 – The Holy Qur’an will be uplifted and no Ayah will be left on earth. 6 – The sun will rise from the West. Other than these signs which are mentioned in the question are not correct. But there are other greater signs that are not mentioned here.
Allah knows best.
