Wars before Qiyamah

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “By Him in whose [control] lies my life, the world will not terminate until a time comes upon people when neither the murderer will know why he killed, nor the murdered know why he was killed.” The Prophet was asked, “How will this occur?” He replied, There will be wars/turmoil. The murderer and the murdered will both go to Jahannam”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2908)
