Signs, Day Of Judgement


Aslamu Alaykum to everyone.

How many signs (of judgement day) are they left to happen and how many have happened?


Wa `alaykum as-Salam wa rahmatullah.

Whether the Signs of the Judgment Day are reckoned as five or ten, none of them have come to pass.

Please see the post “Signs of Last Days: Major & Minor” for an enumeration of the Signs properly so-called, as well as for an evaluation of the myriad other indications presaging these Signs. For more details on this subject, and for advice on how best to prepare, please consult The Approach of Armageddon? An Islamic Perspective by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani.

Concerning those other indications of the Last Days, the Sultan ul-awliya Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani – may Allah sanctify his secret – explained that the Lord of Time al-Mahdi – peace be upon him – “is going to appear after 101 hindrances. He must cut all of those before he can appear. It means that the time of his appearance must be just correct. 99 of the hindrances have passed away. Now only two of them are remaining…the first sign: Russians coming into Turkey. By Awliyas this is expected to happen soon. After this, the Third War will come…There must be a Great War between East and West and the West will be victorious over the East…During the war Mahdi `alayhi Salam will come…”
