3 Things to Do When We Reach the End of Times

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

There shall come a time upon my Ummah, upon my nation, upon the people who follow me, upon the people who believe in me, they call themselves Muslims and believers, when their prayers are not prayed correctly, and when high buildings spread in every place, when people swear in the name of Allah a lot about everything without fulfilling their oath. (Abu Dawud)

People curse each other a lot. Bribery and adultery prevails. People neglect the hereafter in order to buy the luxuries of this world in exchange for the Hereafter; so people become materialistic.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

If you see this happening in your time, then seek refuge, seek refuge.

Find the solution to get away from all of this. It’s not an easy solution, but you need to stay away from all this.

In one other hadith, a man said:

“O Messenger of Allah, what is seeking refuge? How do I seek protection? What do you mean by that?”

And the Prophet gave an expression like this, he said:

By adhering to your house, and keeping your mouth shut, and hold your tongue, and hold from doing unlawful until death comes to you. (At-Tirmidhi)

There’s going to come a time even worse than this, where a person becomes so confused about what is happening in the world, so deluded by everything that they see and hear that they’re not going to know what to do and where to go and who to stand with except to stay away from things even if they means sitting at home, abstaining from all of this. Because there’s not much they can do anymore.

They want to do good, but where do they go? They want to avoid the bad, but it’s all the way around…

I heard a lot of young people say to me: “Why does Islam say everything is Haram?”

This is not true. Islam does not say everything is Haram, but when there’s so much Haram around us and corruption, Islam, looks like, is forbidding everything.

But because we live in a time where the Prophet (peace be upon him) told us that sins will be taken lightly, and that modesty will be very invaluable, which leads us to that human life becomes invaluable.
