The Major Signs of Qiyamah
This article is all about the major signs of qiyamah. You need to read it from the core of your heart and forward it to others to learn about it.
Belief on the day of qiyamah is an integral part of our eman. We can’t deny the Day of Judgement (qiyamah) because it is a certain day, and everyone has to witness it. On that day, every individual will have to answer the questions of Allah Almighty. Many of us wonder and are curious when that day will come. Like us, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) companions were also curious about the day of qiyamah. That’s why they asked the Holy Prophet (SAW) the major signs of qiyamah. The Nabi Kareem (SAW) answered their questions, and from them, the major signs are narrated in different Hadiths’ books. Following are the major signs of qiyamah in the might of Hadiths.

The egression of Imam Mehdi:
The major signs of qiyamah will initiate after the egression of Imam Mehdi. After his emergence, all the signs of the Day of Judgment will appear one by one.
Hudhafah ibn Usayd Ghifari (R.A) said;
“Allah’s Messenger came to us all of a sudden as we were (busy in a discussion). He asked: What are you discussing? (The Companions) replied: We are discussing (the subject of) the Last Hour. Thereupon he said: It will not come until you see ten signs. And (in this connection) he made a mention of the ‘smoke (Dhukhan),’ ‘Dajjal (Antichrist),’ ‘the beast,’ ‘the rising of the sun from the west,’ ‘the descent of Jesus son of Mary,’ ‘Gog and Magog,’ ‘sinking of the earth in three places, one in the east, one in the west and one in Arabia at the end of which fire would burn forth from Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly (i.e., the place where mankind will be assembled for judgment).” Get the idea from Quran School for kids.
In the light of the above Hadith, we can say that there are 10 major signs of qiyamah. They all will reveal once Imam Mehdi emerges.
- The revival of Dajjal
- Gog and Magog
- Dukhan (smoke)
- The appearance of the beast (Dabbat ul Ardh) on the earth
- The rising of the sun from the west
- Three landslides on the earth, i.e., one in the east, one in the west, and one in the Arab Peninsula
- A fire that will come out of Yemen and will gather the people.
- The son of Mary will descend.
The above signs are noted from Quran and Sunnah (Allah knows better).
Explanation of the major signs of qiyamah:
We, Muslims, are aware of the Dajjal, Gog and Magog, the sun rising from the west, the descending of Hazrat Essa to earth, and the three landslides. However, the other 3 signs are not more apparent to everyone. That’s why we share its explanation worthy.
Allah SWT explains the coming of smoke from the sky in verse no. 10-11 of chapter no. 44 in the Holy Quran. Allah says: “Then wait you for the Day when the sky will bring forth a visible smoke, covering the people, this will be a painful torment.”
The appearance of the beast on earth:
Allah SWT in Quran refers to the beast on earth in verse no. 82 of chapter no. 27. Allah SWT says: “And when the Word (of torment) is fulfilled against them. We shall bring out from the earth a beast to them, which will speak to them because mankind believed not with certainty in Our signs”.
The Holy Prophet SAW in a Hadith told his companions about the 10 major signs of qiyamah, and the ten signs include, “at the end of which fire would burn forth from Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly.”
May Allah SWT keep us in His blessings on the Day of Judgment (Qiyamah). Ameen
