Madinah towards the End (Hadith No. 1593)


Hadith no. 1592 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 97:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

If I saw deers grazing in Medina, I would not chase them, for Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “(Medina) is a sanctuary between its two mountains.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 98:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

I heard Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saying, “The people will leave Medina in spite of the best state it will have, and none except the wild birds and the beasts of prey will live in it, and the last persons who will die will be two shepherds from the tribe of Muzaina, who will be driving their sheep towards Medina, but will find nobody in it, and when they reach the valley of Thaniyat-al-Wada’, they will fall down on their faces dead.”

Yet to be seen.. though it seems highly unlikely. And what an awful sight it would be to see Madinah empty! I wonder what would prompt people to leave this sanctuary.. the beloved city of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), for which he invoked barakah in its mudd and sa’ (measuring units); the place where nothing but peace and serenity is to be found.. I wonder why its residents would prefer any other piece of land over it.

I hope I don’t live to see this time for it will be extremely saddening to hear such news. May Allah keep our hearts firm on Deen. :(

  1. asalmualaikum
    Its sad to hear this …i wish that no one of us see that time :'(

  2. This Hadith is talking about the end of times. We were studying Tafseer a few days ago and our last lecture was on the Day of Judgement which basically turned into life of this world and the hereafter and the end of times.

    This is after Dajjaal and Ya’jooj Ma’jooj and after the Ka’baah would be destroyed. Only a few people would remain who would take Allah’s name and then a wind would blow which would kill everyone who has even a bit of Emaan in his heart and the people left would be the worst of creation on whom Qiyamah would come. That’s what I remember and Allah knows the best.

    He also told of a Hadith of the shepherds driving their sheep near Madinah when one says to the other that I heard that once this was a city filled with people.. Allah u Akbar!
