The blessed Companion of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Abdullah ibn Salam narrates that when Allah willed to guide Zaid ibn Su`nah (the great Jewish scholar of Madinah), Zaid ibn Su`nah said:
“I recognized all of the signs of prophethood upon seeing the face of Muhammad save two signs that were not immediately evident:
That his forbearance would precede his rashness, and that his forbearance would increase upon encountering excessive rashness.”
Many of the signs of the Hour have already occurred or are visible today. They are in accordance to the prophecies of Rasulullah (S.A.W). This is one of the many evidences which further corroborates the prophethood of Rasulullah (S.A.W).
Once the major signs of the Hour start to emerge, they will follow in succession, like beads falling one after another from a necklace once the thread is cut. Rasulullah (S.A.W) said: “Whatever of them (i.e., the signs of the Hour) occurs first, it will soon be followed by the other.” [Muslim]
May Allah give us the ability to prepare for the Day of Judgement and protect us from the trials of The Hour. Ameen,
