Dear brother, these are the minor and major signs of the Last Day. Most of the minor signs have already occurred, so are you ready for the day of resurrection?

A man asked the Prophet about the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment) saying, "When will the Hour be?" The Prophet said, "What have you prepared for it?" [Al-Bukhari]

We ask Allah to be among those who listen to the Word (Al Quran) and follow the best meaning in it, and our last prayer is that "praise and gratitude be to Allah the lord of the universe”.
