Like everything, the present universe will also come to an end, and it is a part of our faith to believe in the Last Day. The signs of the Day of Judgment have been foretold by our Prophet (S). Ibn Kathir has collected all the prophesies of the Prophet (S) in his book Al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah.

In this volume, we have presented from them the signs of the Hour and the events that are yet to take place, although mentioning very few examples of those prophesies that have already been realized.


O Allah, send prayers and salutations on Muhammad, his family, and his Companions. This is the Book of The End: Great Trials and Tribulations. It deals with what the Prophet informed us about regarding the signs of the Hour and the great events that are to take place before the Day of Judgment, all of which we must have faith in, because the Prophet spoke not from desire, but from revelation.

Abu Moosa Al-Ash'aree related that the Messenger of Allah said, "This nation of mine is one upon which there is mercy; there is no punishment upon it in the Hereafter; its punishment is in this world - with trials, earthquakes, and killings."

Hitherto in our discussion on the unseen past, we covered in detail events that pertain to the beginning of the world, the stories of the prophets, and the history of peoples until our era. Then we discussed the biography of the Prophet (S) mentioning his characteristics and the proofs of his prophet hood. Then we covered some events that the Prophet prophesized about and that have already taken place before our century. When we gave an account of events that took place after the Prophet's death, we pointed out those occurrences about which a Hadeeth gave information. Since we already mentioned those prophesies that have already become realized and since it would be too long to repeat them all here, we will suffice by mentioning only a few examples, after which we will return to the main theme of this work. And we seek help from Allah.

Inna alhamdulillah. Assalamu alaikum dearest brothers and sisters: This is an obligation to every Muslim to read this book and be prepared with awareness about what Rasulullah [SAWS] brought with his prophecy. You MUST read this book!

Reviewer: Devon from Aurora, United States on 08/11/2011
Assalamu Alaikum, I truly believe books of this nature are excellent to own for Muslims. We need these kind of reminders. That being said, this book is full of information on the Hereafter. However, it includes many weak or fabricated hadith. These are CLEARLY labeled, but I would have preferred more authentic ones. I guess it would be nice to know for the purpose of correcting any misconceptions or use of these hadith. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend this book, to the point where I am buying it for others.

Reviewer: Shahid from Lawrenceville, United States on 11/22/2010

Reviewer: Abdullah from San Juan, Trinidad on 02/16/2009
MashaAllah, I agree with Hashem. This book should be read over and over as a reminder of the Punishments and Mercies of Allah in the Dunya and in the Akhirah.

Reviewer: Hashem from Melbourne, Australia on 12/19/2008
Brothers and sisters, believe me this book is a must! It has more information about the how the world is going to end than you can possibly want.
