The Use of Mosques and
Places of Worship for Different Purposes

The hadith quoted below reveals that one sign of the End Times is that mosques will be used only as social gathering places:

 

The Hour will not come until mosques cease to be places where people pray, but become places where people stop by. (Son Zamanla İlgili Hadisler [Hadiths Related to the End Times], p. 87)

 

 

The Last Hour will not come until people vie with one another about mosques. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Ibn Hibban, and Ibn Majah)
