The Signs in very short form

Last updated July 15, 1999.      Some very small changes 12 September 2009.   


Bismilla-hi-Rahmani-Rahim.

They are called "signs" below in this list, but the actual number of signs of the approaching hour (doomsday) is much less according to real scholars. I am not a scholar, far from it. I don't even know much Arabic, just enough to pray. I did this list as an amateur only, 10 years ago. I wanted to get some structure in what is supposed to happen before the end of times. However only Allah knows about the future and about the exact meaning of many expressions in the "signs". So therefore don't take the list literally. It is also translated from Arabic. Arabic in it's classic form is the key to the correct understanding of many expressions. Only qualified scholars in hadith know more about  the absolutely correct order and the meanings. One single hadith can take hours to explain by a good scholar. I have tried to simplify it and I repeat I am not an expert. 

What can be especially interesting in the list are clusters of  "DAJJAL" or "LIARS" or "ISA" (=Jesus, peace be upon him). Search for these expressions with your browsers "Find" utility. "Romans" are as far I understand another word for "Christian", probably because at the time of the creation of the hadith the Romans were "Christians"

I have tried to sort the information in order of when the signs will occur. This is of course an impossible task. Only Allah knows. But while trying at least a few of the sequences become more clear. But it is up to everyone to ask a real expert on Hadith about the real meaning, interpretation and sequence of each hadith. One important such sequence is the time for the appearing of the beast and the sun rising from the West. Is it before or after the Dajjal? As an amateur I believed before the Dajjal, however it might be at the very end just before doomsday that the Sun rises from the West and the Beast appears. This means that every human has a chance to become a Muslim also during the time of Isa (Jesus, peace be upon him). This means that bad muslims have a chance to become good Muslims even during the time of Isa, (Jesus, peace be upon him). So disregard the order I have in the lists and ask the real experts, the scholars in Hadith. Read books like Bilal Philips about the coming of the Dajjal and don't base any unnecessary conclusions on my list(s).

Each sign in short form that is underlined points to a list with more links to Hadith or Quran or Books or Articles etc. about the End of Time with a more complete English "translation or interpretation."

Each number points direct to a Hadith or Ayah in the Quran or to a page in a Book or to an Article etc.
