The death of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), a sign of Qiyamah

Question

Is the death of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) regarded to be a sign of Qiyamah?

 

Answer

Yes. This is mentioned in a Hadith recorded by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah).

Sayyiduna ‘Awf ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “I went to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) during the Battle of Tabuk expedition while he was in a leather [hide] tent. He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Count six signs before Qiyamah, My death….”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3176)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
