Every era will be worse than the previous era


Is this narration authentic?

‘Be patient till you meet your Rabb, for no time will come upon you but the time following it will be worse than it’



Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. The narration is therefore authentic.

Zubayr ibn ‘Adiy (rahimahullah) complained to Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) regarding the oppression of Hajjaj ibn Yusuf. Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘Be patient, for no time [year] will come but that the time [year] after it will be worse than it until you meet your Rabb [i.e. until you pass away]. I heard this from your Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7068. Also see Fathul Bari)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
