The Adoption Of Deities Other Than God

 

The system of night and day will not end until the people have taken to worship of Lat and 'Uzza (Sahih Muslim)

 

 

Many tribes of my people will adhere to associators and revert back to disbelief before the Hour (Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 287)

 

 

The Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists, and tribes of my people worship idols. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

 

Ascribing associates to God, or deeming someone or something (idols) worthy of worship besides God, is a great sin. Some people think that idolatry involves worshipping statues carved out of stone and wood, as people did in the past. But this is a great mistake, for idolatry also means those who ascribe associates to God. Having faith in God alone, as described in the Qur'an, means dedicating oneself to God alone. In other words, one believes in attaining God's good pleasure and mercy alone. In the End Times, the number of true believers who do not ascribe associates to God will diminish, and the number of people who embrace superstitious beliefs will increase.
