Chapter: Regarding The Raising up of Knowledge And The Appearance Of Ignorance [1]

1856 – From Anas Ibn Maalik (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said, ” Should I not narrate to you a hadeeth which I heard from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) not narrated by any of you, nor will you hear like it? “Verily from the signs of the hour is the raising of knowledge, and the manifestation of ignorance, and the spreading of adultery/fornication (Zinaa), and the drinking of intoxicants, and the departure of men, and the remaining of women. Until there will be fifty women to be cared for by one man.”[2] [Saheeh Muslim (8/58)]

Chapter: Regarding the Taking Away of Knowledge

1857 – From Abee Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said, Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “A time is approaching in which the knowledge will be taken away, and trials (Fitan) will appear, and greed will be present[3], and al-Harj will increase.” They said, “And what is al-Harj?” He said, “Killing.” [Saheeh Muslim (8/59)]

Chapter: Regarding The Taking Away of Knowledge By Taking Away The Scholars

1858 – From ‘Abdullaah Ibn ‘Umar Ibnul ‘Aas (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said, “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying, ‘Verily Allaah does not take away knowledge by snatching it away from the people, rather He takes it away by taking away the scholars, until there is not one scholar left. So The people will take ignorant leaders, so they will be asked, and they will give rulings without knowledge. So they will be misguided, and they will misguide. [Saheeh Muslim (8/60)]

Chapter: Whoever Takes A Good Way, or Bad In Islaam

1859 – From Jareer Ibn ‘Abdullaah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: “People from amongst the Arabs came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) with wool on them. So he incited the people to give charity, but they were slow on that, until I saw that (displeasure) on his face.” He said, “Then a man from the Ansaar came with a bag from paper, then others came. Then they followed until it was known that there was happiness on his (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) face. So the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Whoever takes in Islaam a good way, and it is acted upon after him; There is for him a like reward from the performers of it without there being anything decreased from their reward. And whoever takes a sinful way, and it is acted upon after him, there is written for him a like burden from the performers of it, and there is not decreased from their burden, anything.'” [Saheeh Muslim (8/61)]

Chapter: Whoever Calls To Guidance or Misguidance

1860 – From Abee Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) “Whoever calls to guidance has a reward like the rewards of those who follow him, without that decreasing anything from their reward. And whoever calls to misguidance, there is on him sin from the sins of those who follow him, not decreasing that from their sins anything.” [Saheeh Muslim (8/62)]

And Whoever lies on me [Hammaam said, “He must be careful”, He said, “purposely”][5], then let him settle on his seat in the Fire. [Saheeh Muslim (8/229)]

1862 – From Mugheerah Ibn Shu’bah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying, ‘Verily a lie on me is not like a lie on anyone else. So whoever lies on me purposely, then let him settle on his seat in the Fire.'” [Saheeh Muslim (1/8)]
