Quran and dhikr will be lifted before Qiyamah

Question

What is status of following narration?

لا تقوم الساعة حتى يرفع الركن والقرآن

Qiyamah will not occur until the Quran and the Rukn [Yamani of the Ka’bah] are lifted/destroyed

 

Answer

This narration has been recorded with variation in the wording. Some versions have the word ‘dhikr’ [remembrance of Allah] in place of ‘Rukn’.

(Refer: Futuhu Misr Wal Maghrib of ‘Abdur Rahman ibn ‘Abdil Hakam [Demise: 257 A.H], pg. 284 and Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 7531, ‘ilmiyyah edition. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 9854)

 

Shaykh Ahmad Siddiq Al Ghumari (rahimahullah) says that both these words [i.e. dhikr and rukn] are in conformity to other Hadiths. [i.e. corroborated by other Hadiths]

(Al Mudawi, vol. 6 pg. 402, Hadith: 3700)

 

The Hadith in question is therefore suitable to quote.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
