There will come a time when people gather in the Masjid yet there will be no believers among them

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

‘There will come a time upon people when they gather and pray in the Masjids yet there will be no believers among them’

 

Answer

Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators to be in accordance to the standard of narrators of Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. Hafiz Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs.

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 30992, 38741 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 442 under the chapter of trials and wars)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
