“Signs of the Last Day”

Taught by Shaykh Kamal El Mekki (In US/Can) & Shaykh Ahsan Hanif (In UK)


“This is the Book (the Qur'an), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqūn. Who believe in the Ghayb…” [Baqarah, 2:2-3]


Don’t Believe the Hype!

Belief in the Last Day is one of the pillars of Iman, but today it is a field of study filled with much scepticism and bogus conspiracy theories. People predicated the end of the world in 2012 and used many modern phenomena as proof, but as Muslims we know that our Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the most knowledgeable of all humans in this regard and imparted this knowledge onto his companions in a very detailed and descriptive manner. 


Hudhayfah said: "The Prophet stood up one day to speak to us, and told us everything that was going to happen until the Hour, and left nothing unsaid.” (Abu Dawud, Muslim.)


So what should be our approach be in learning the Signs of the Last day?

Firstly: To believe in all of the Unseen, including the Signs of the Hour which have been authentically reported to us.

Secondly: To know that everything which takes place is from the decree of Allah.

Thirdly: To not deny any of those signs simply because they seem incomprehensible to us.

Fourthly: To not misinterpret those signs as a result of our own lack of understanding.

Fifthly: It is not our responsibility to explain the Signs of the Hour or make complete sense of them; rather our minimum responsibility is to have īmān in them.


“Bring your very best writing hand and of course, pen(s). Start writing and keep writing; every aspect to this course is noteworthy. In short, a brilliant course by a brilliant instructor (Sh Ahsan Hanif).” - Mohammed Issat (Bradford, UK)


"Shaikh Kamal El Mekki is AMAZING! not only did he educated us with rich knowledge he often made jokes which made everyone laugh. I have learned so much firstly, want to thank Allah, Shaikh Kamal and AlMaghrib for making this available for me and hundreds of others. I recommend everyone to take this course, I guarantee you, you won't be bored and you will enjoy it as much as I did. Jazakallahu Khayran." - Nusrat Lima (New York City, US)



The Minor Signs

Some of the minor signs take place a good passage of time before the Day of Judgement is established, others take place up until the first of the major signs occurs and yet others still will continue to take place alongside the major signs. These signs may occur at certain places and during certain times and to certain people. Some of these signs take place and come to an end whereas others can be on-going for some time, yet others are still to come.  How many of these signs do we see around us today? How many are left to come? Find out the answers to these questions and many more by registering for “All Around Us” TODAY!

Sheikh Ahsan has the most beautiful recitation... MashAllah And his desire to instill a love in the hearts of us all for the Quran by asking us to recite each ayah that we were reviewing, was just AWESOME!!” - Abeeda Khatoon (Scotland, UK) "

Masha'Allah, Shaykh Kamal el Mekki is a great teacher, he knows what he is talking about and his enthusiasm for the material he teaches is contagious. He was answering the questions nicely, his interaction with the students was very good. The course is nicely organised." - Farhan Khan (Chicago, USA)


‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr narrated that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “The signs [of the Hour] are like beads on a string, once the string is cut, the beads will fall in quick succession.” [Musnad Aḥmad]


The Major Signs

These are the signs which will immediately precede the Day of Judgement. They will occur on a large scale, affect vast multitudes of people and have a lasting impact. The major signs also occur one after the other in quick succession.  They include the appearance of the Mahdi, the fitnah of the Dajjāl, then the descent of ‘Īsā and then the appearance of Gog and Magog. What will be the state of people’s worship of Allah as the Hour comes closer? How close are we to the end of Time? Find out the answers to these questions and many more by registering for “All Around Us” TODAY!

In this course you will learn about:

  • The description of the Mahdī
  • The Dajjāl and how to protect ourselves from him
  • Descent of ‘Īsā ibn Maryam (Alaihis salam)
  • Gog and Magog (Ya’jūj & Ma’jūj)
  • The events leading up until the end of time

It's a good course to learn about signs of the hour. I learned about things I never knew before. We are oblivious to the signs which actually exist all around us.” - Syamira Asyifa (KL, Malaysia)



Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “The Hour will not be established until the sun rises from the West, so when the people see this they will believe, but that is when faith will do no good to the one who did not believe before.” [Bukharī]


Why Should You Study the Signs?

The Signs of the Hour should increase us in knowledge and good deed, and should impress upon us the urgency by which we need to prepare for the Day of Judgement. The purpose of studying and knowing these signs is so that we can be wary of them and know through them the hastily approaching Hour.

Allow this course to be the one that changes your life and your aakhirah for the better. Understand the wisdom behind the signs and enable yourself to benefit from this knowledge that Allah has revealed to YOU.

Know and understand the signs of the Final Day...better your life, increase your iman and you’re your ticket to Jannah TODAY!
