The Hour will not be established until…

From Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet sallAllaahu’alaihiwasallam said:

لا تقوم الساعة حتى تعود أرض العرب مروجا وأنهارا

“The Hour will not be established until the lands of the Arabs will return to being grass covered meadows and rivers.”

[Reported by Muslim, Ahmad and al-Haakim with an authentic chain]

Chapters from the Life of the Messenger

Al-Fusool fee Seerat-ir-Rasool (sallAllaahu’alaihiwasallam)
by al-Imaam, al-Haafiz, Ismaa’eel ibn ‘Umar ibn Katheer al-Qurashee [701 – 774H]

These audio lessons are a translation of the above book by the famous scholar Ibn Katheer, along with side points discussing the authenticity of the narrations mentioned, as well as other beneficial narrations. An extremely valuable resource given the lack of authentic material on the subject of the life of our beloved Prophet (sallAllaahu’alaihiwasallam).

The distinctive Characteristics of the book ‘Al-Fusool’:

1) The book is divided into two parts:
The First Part: The Seerah of the Messenger and his military expeditions.
The Second Part: The Signs of his Prophethood, his characteristics, and the things
particular to him.

2) This book is not an abridgement of, or an extraction from ‘al-Bidaayah wan-
Nihaayah’, but rather it is an independent book that stands on its own merit. The
author compiled it from the works of the fine scholars who preceded him.

3) Despite its small size it is replete with information; it is comprehensive and

4) It is simple in its style.

5) It narrates events and occurrences in sequence.

6) Ibn Katheer took benefit from the previous works, but he avoided reports with
weak chains of narration. He sometimes mentions them, however, and then draws
attention to them, or he criticizes them.

Isha begins when the RED twilight of maghrib has disappeared (Sh al-Albaani)

Q: Salaat-ul-Maghrib – when does it’s time last until?

A: The time for maghrib as is mentioned in the hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim is up until the disappearance of the red twilight – i.e.: it lasts about an hour or so. And we have checked this visually ourselves here. And based on this assessment we consider that they call the adhan for Isha here about half an hour late – i.e. everywhere. And they also call the adhan of maghrib here about 10 minutes late – they delay it by a full 10 minutes. Therefore we break our fast whether in or outside Ramadan about 10 minutes before their calling the adhaan …
