Question

Is this a Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ”

There will come a time when my ummah loves five things and forgets five things. They will love this world and will forget the hereafter; they will love wealth and forget the reckoning; they will love created beings and forget the Creator; they will love palaces and forget the grave; they will love sin and forget repentance. When that happens, Allah will test them with rises in prices, epidemics, sudden death and unjust rulers.”

 

Answer

I have not come across this narration in any of the Hadith sources.

The narration should not be quoted until it can be sourced and then verified.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
