A Rise in Killings

 

The Hour [Last Day] will not be established until murders increase. (Sahih Bukhari)

 

 

Doomsday will not come until your leaders kill and the wicked inherit your world. (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 141)

 

 

... The appearance of strife, terrifying situations, and murders.
(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi `Alamat
al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 39)

 

 

The Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) said: "When the time would draw close to the Last Hour, the Harj will increase." They said: "What is al-Harj?" Thereupon he said: "It is bloodshed and slaughter."(Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim and Sunan Abu Dawud)

 

 

"� the shedding of blood � is one of the portents of Doomsday." (Muhammad ibn `Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 142)

 

 

He [the Prophet (pbuh)] said: "Before the Hour comes, there will be a lot of harj." I asked: "O God's Messenger, what is harj?" He replied: "It is murder, that is, murders..." What we mean by murder is not killing idolaters, but killing one another, to such an extent that it is killing one's neighbor, nephew, or close relative." (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 385, no. 711)

 

An increase in murders is an obvious sign of the End Times. We can readily say that the events related in these hadiths have occurred, for in our day people hire murderers and others join organized crime rings.

Violence is a sign of the End Times. Violence spreading among young people and moral degeneration are consequences of leading a life that is far from the religion's morality. Time [May 3, 1999] covered the story of a massacre in the U.S. committed by 2 high-school pupils, who attacked their school with bombs and weapons and killed 13 innocent people.
