Ahadith on the Day of Judgment

Prophetic Traditions on the Victory of the Believers

I. Mughira (ra) says the Prophet (saws) said: “Some of my followers shall always remain the better of their adversaries (in their struggle against falsehood), and this will be the situation until the Day of Judgement.”

~ Bukhari, Muslim

II. Mu`awiyya (ra) says, “I heard the Prophet (saws) say: ‘A group of people from among my followers will remain following the commandments of Allah (swt). No harm will he do them who will abandon them, nor he who opposes them. This will remain until the Day of Judgement.’”

~ Bukhari, Muslim

III. Said the Prophet: “A group of this Ummah will always remain upholding the word (of God). Neither will anyone harm them by withdrawing his support, nor by opposing them. That will be the situation until Allah (swt) will send His Command (of the Last Hour).”

~ Bukhari, Muslim

IV. `Amr b. Qays (ra) says the Prophet said: “We are the last to appear, but the first to (be sent into Paradise) on the Day of Judgement. And let me tell you something without any pride. Ibrahim is Khalilullah, Musa is Safiyullah, and I am Habibullah. In my hand shall be the flag of Hamd on the Day of Judgement. Allah (swt) has made a promise to me about my followers; and He (swt) has sent them to remain in peace over three things: that He (swt) will not send starvation on them all at one time, their enemy will not be able to destroy them and they will not be united on falsehood.”

~ Darimi

V. Nafi`b. `Utba says the Prophet said: “You will fight against Arabs of the Peninsula and Allah (swt) will grant you victory. Then you will fight against the Persians and Allah (swt) will grant you victory. And then you will fight against the Romans and Allah (swt) will grant you victory. Finally, you will fight against the Dajjal and Allah (swt) will grant you victory.”

~ Muslim

Commentary

It is quite pleasant to hear these words. For the true tongue of the True man spoke and gave us predictions concerning our struggle against leaders of falsehood. The Arabs who opposed the Prophet, the Persians, the Romans – they were all defeated. So what doubt that Dajjal will appear and what doubt that the body of the Muslims will come out victorious against him? Note the order: Events took place in the same order in which the Trustworthy (saws) had predicted.

VI. Nu`man b. Bashir reports Huzaifa (ra) as saying: “The Prophet (saws) said: ‘At the start Nubuwwah will reign among you until Allah (swt) wills, and then He will withdraw it. Then it will be Khilafah on the prophetic pattern. It will last until Allah (swt) wills and then Allah (swt) will withdraw it. That will be followed by a poorly managed kingship. It will also be lost till Allah (swt) wills and then it will be withdrawn. After that, it will be tyrannous kingship which will last till Allah (swt) wills and then He will withdraw it. And then it will again be Khilafah on the prophetic pattern.’ After that the Prophet fell silent.”
