I think it will be a frightening day when the Sun rises in the West. Also I'm sure within myself that that day will come. Hopefully not for awhile.
What is this about the Sun being one inch from our heads? If you can please elaborate. Thank you and Peace
Sorry, i was wrong, it's not 1 inch, but 17-21 inches or 70 cubits.. The sun will be above our head was written in 2 different Hadith as far as i
know, the first hadith by Bukhari-Muslim :"Human will sweat on the Day of Resurrection, the heat up-stream to the earth at 70 cubits". And the
other's by Imam Muslim himself : The sun will come down toward the people on the day of Qiyama until it is only about a mile up. ".
There are 2 phase of doomsday (Qiyamah/Kiamat) in Islam, the first one's Kiamat Sugro (first phase leading to Kiamat Kubro), the other is Kiamat
Kubro (the real destruction).
Conclusion from some Hadith and Quran verses about the signs of Kiamat Sugro
1. Allah send the prophet to earth for humankind, and some people will follow his message while the other dont.
2. "A slave birth his/her employer/master, and you see people who are bare feet, naked, and poor people, herders of animals race each other in high
buildings." (Hadith by Imam Muslim)
3. Euphrates River was changed to gold.
4. Baitul Maqdis predominantly Muslims.
5. Many murders occur.
6. The emergence of the Khawarij (?) who will try to attack religions
7. Many protectors who defend zholim/evil deed
8. The war between Jews and Muslims
9. Fitnah/lies/defamation will be dominant in the market
10. Least knowledge, more adultery and drinking khamr/alchohol
11. There will be more females than males
12. Many mosque are built but they built them for pride
13. Widely spread Riba/interest (some kind of increase in the amount of a loan) and haram treasure/money
While the sign of Kiamat Kubro are :
1. Dukhan (?) which will come out and lead to disease that kill many humankind, mostly disbelievers.
2. Something or someone that is called "Dajjal" will spread fitna (lies/scandal) to take people's faith.
3. Some huge talking animal come out of the border in Shafa hill in Mecca.
4. The sun will come out of the sinking, by this time people will realize the truth but it's too late.
5. Jesus/Isa descent to the surface of this earth, support the government of Imam Mahadi (wise leader), break all crosses , and kill the Dajjal.
6. People of Yagog and Magog will come and create havoc in this earth, namely they come out after they have destroyed the wall that was made of iron
mixed with copper that has been established by Zul Qarnain together with his followers.
7. Earthquake in the East.
8. Earthquake in the West.
9. Earthquake in the Arabian Peninsula.
