The Abandonment of Commanding What Is Good and Prohibiting What Is Unlawful

 

The Hour will approach when good is abandoned and nobody enjoins it, and evil is committed and no one forbids it. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 480)

 

 

The Hour draws near, and the good deeds diminish. (Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 264)

 

With the verse "Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success" (Surah Al `Imran, 3:104), God makes it compulsory (fardh) for people to enjoin good and forbid evil. People's failure to do so is a sign of the Hour as well as of Prophet Jesus' (pbuh) second coming, an event that heralds the great events due to occur before the Hour.
