Hadith Explanation

The Ten Near Signs

“The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was in a room and we were below him. He looked out over us and said, ‘What are you talking about?’ We said, ‘The Hour.’ He said, ‘The Hour will not come until there have been ten signs: A collapse of the earth in the east, a collapse of the earth in the west, a collapse of the earth in the Arabian Peninsula, the Smoke, Ad-Dajjal, the Beast of the earth, Yajuj and Majuj, the rising of the sun from its place of setting, and a fire which will emerge from the furthest part of Aden and drive the people.’” [Sahih Muslim]

“The Hour” is the Day of Judgement. This hadith mentions nine of the ten events to occur closest to the Day of Judgement. Another hadith mentions the tenth sign as being the descent of Eesa ibn Maryam (alaihis salam).

The ten signs mentioned in this hadith are the Alamaat Qurba - the “nearest signs” to the Day of Judgment. They are also known as the Alamaat Kubra – the “biggest signs.”

Regarding the fire that will emerge from Aden (in Yemen); it will halt with the people when they halt, and it will stop with them when they rest.

These ten signs are the last signs Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will show us before the Trumpet is blown.
