Protection From Endtimes Turmoil
Regarding place of residence, in addition to leaving large cities, here are three different recommendations; all of them might be suitable for a particular region, during a particular period, or according to people’s financial capabilities. They are: hiding inside the houses, preparing to move and change location with few possessions, leaving houses and taking refuge in regions between sea shores and mountains with high trees of long branches.
Of course we know that defense of self, folks and properties, is a religious duty, and whoever is killed will be a martyr. Accordingly, it can be concluded that not taking part in these turmoils means not leaving the place and the city of your residence for the purpose of taking part in, or supporting the invasion of the others somewhere else. As about defending the place of your residence, it is a duty. In case you are certain that it is impossible, by then you have to go towards the country side, between high mountains and sea shores. Self defense of your place of residence includes not allowing the enemy to be in the surrounding locations. According to the kinds of weapons of the present days, and the high speed of moving around, it makes the locations of these surrounding places far away from residence location.
The properties of the sign: evidences from some traditions and narratives:
The results as mentioned above had been concluded from the following traditions and narratives. Pay attention to the underlined phrases and connect them with each other…
We were told by bin ‘Oyaynah, from Abdullah bin Abdul Rahman Alansari, from his father, from Abo Saeid Alkhodri, from the Prophet (S): "It is about to be that the best property of the Muslim are sheep, taking them towards the heights of mountains, and rainy places, running away with his religion from turmoils". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
We were told by Abdul Quddoos, from Safwan, from Saeid bin Khalid, from Matar, the follower of Om Hakim, from Ka’b, that he said: "You will be covered by a turmoil, like a dark night, no house of the Muslims, east or west, can be saved from them. No one can get free of them except the one who takes refuge in the shades of trees, between them and the sea. The safest thing for people from that turmoil are the feet of hills, sea shores, and the best will be the coast and Hejaz" . (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
From the Messenger (S): “There will be turmoil, the one sitting is better than the one standing; and the one standing is better than the one walking; and the one walking better than the one running. The one who faces it, it will face him. Any one who could find a shelter in it let him take refuge in it. When it happens, let the one who has a herd of camels to be with them; and the one who has a herd of sheep, let him be with them. The one who has a land, to him be in his land. If he had none of those, let him break his sword at a stone, and escape if he can. A camel with a saddle is better than a town which allows one hundred thousand. / A camel with a saddle, by which the believer can escape is better than a town which allows one hundred thousand". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
“And turmoils will swoop down, when no one will say: ‘there in no God but Allah’. A man will pray just to be seen by people. Thus, go to the country peripheries and sea shores and low lands, and escape". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
Bin Wahab said to us, from Sofian, from Salamah bin Kuhail, from Abo Alza’raa’, from Abdullah, he said: "That day, the best property are a good weapon and a good horse, by which the servant can withdraw to where he wanted". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
Mo’ammar bin Khothaim said: the Messenger of Allah (S) said: "The best of people in times of turmoils is a man who eats by his sword in the cause of Allah, and a man at the summit of a high land, eating from the product of his sheep". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.)
From Hodhaifah, he said: The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "O Abdullah bin Amr, what will you do when you will be left with a scum of people, whose obligation and integrity have become jumbled, (and he joined his fingers together like this)". He said: And what do you order me to do? He said: "Attend to those closest of them to you, and leave the commoners of them". (Albokhari: under the title: ‘When a scum of people remain.’ Bin Hajar said: This quotation is the text of a tradition related by Altabari, and considered correct by bin Hayyan, from Abo Horairah.)
From Abo Horairah: the Prophet (S) said: "The happiest one in time of turmoil is every one who is obscure and pure. If he is present he will not be recognized, and if he is absent he will not be missed. The most retched of the people is a every lousy orator, or the one who occupies a position. No one may escape their evil except the one who is faithful in his supplication, like the supplication of a man drowning in the sea". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, h # 728.)
Ibn Almobarak said: I know some one in Koofah, whose name I think is Mosafir. He said, from Imam Ali (AS), to have said: "At that tine every lethargic believer will survive". Ibn Almobarak, from Abo Bakr bin Ayyash, said: they said to Imam Ali bin Abo Taalib (AS), what is a lethargic? He said: "A man who keeps silent during turmoil, nothing comes out of him". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, vol 4.).
From Abo Horairah, from the Messenger of Allah (S): "The Euphrates would be about to recede uncovering a mountain of gold. Anyone was present should not take anything of it". (Narrated by Albokhari in Kitab Alfitan.)
Abo Mo’awiyah narrated : Suhail bin Salih told us, from his father, from Abo Horairah, from the Prophet (S), he said: "Before the days are gone, the Euphrates will recede uncovering a mountain of gold, where there will be much killing, when so many will be killed out of the hundred. If you are a witness to that do not get close to them. (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, p 372.)
From Sudair, said: Abo Abdullah (AS) said: "O Sudair: Stay inside your house, and be one of those who remain hidden inside it. Stay calm, as long as day and night stay calm. And when you are informed that AlSufiani had emerged travel to us, even on your feet ... ". (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi (AJ), vol 3, p 467, h # 1030.) (five sources).
Imam Ahmed said: Affan told us, from Hammad bin Salamah, from Thabit, from Anas, from the Prophet (S), that he said: "We were talking that the Endtime shall not come until the sky will not rain, and the land will give no products, and there will be fifty women to one man; a woman will pass by a man, who will say: there used to be a man for this woman". (Kitab Alfitan, by Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi, p 176.)
The Messenger of Allah (S) said: : "The sign of the events in the month of Ramadhan is a sign in the sky, after which there will be discords among the people. If you will be a witness to that, save as much food as you can"... From Kuthayyir bin Morrah Alhadhrami, and he did not ascribe it to the Prophet (S), that he said: "If you see a column of fire in the sky in the month of Ramadhan prepare as much food as you can; it will be a year of famine. The evidence of the event in Ramadhan is a column of fire rising in the sky, similar to the necks of camels, or columns of iron. If you are a witness to it save for your family food stuff for a year". (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi (AJ). vol 1, p 271, h # 171.) (five sources).
From Abo Ja’far (AS), that he said: "I am about to see some people emerging from the east, wanting the right but are denied it, and wanting it but are denied it. When they see that they will brandish their swords, and they will be offered what they wanted; but they will refuse it, until they revolt, and will give it to nobody except your Commandant. Their men who will be killed are martyrs. Would I be a witness to that, I will keep myself for the Commandant (Sahib Alamer)". (Albihaar, vol 52, p 243, from Alghaybah, of Alno’many).
From Abo Ja’far, Mohammad bin Ali (AS): "The emergence of AlSufiani, AlYamani, and AlKhurasani, will all be in one year, in one month, and in one day; like a string of beads, one following the other. There will be hardship in all aspects. Woe to the one who will stand against them, and no banner will be better guided than the banner of AlYamani. It is the banner of the right guidance, because he will be calling for your Commandant. When AlYamani will emerge, selling armaments to people and to every Muslim will be prohibited. When AlYamani emergences join him, because his banner is the banner of right guidance, and it is not allowed for any Muslim to stand against him. Any one who does that will be in hell fire, because AlYamani is calling for the right and for a straight path.” (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi, vol 3, p 254, h # 783.) (thirty seven sources).
From Imam Alsadiq (AS): "Ahead of the emergence of AlQa'em (Imam In-Charge: AlMahdi (AJ)) there will be signs from Allah (E H) to the believers". I said: And what are they, let me be a sacrifice to you? He said: "It is in the words of Allah (E H): *And we shall afflict you (meaning the believers before the emergence of AlMahdi, AS) with some fear, hunger, and shortage in selves and property, and in fruitage; and give good tidings to those who endure*. He said; He will afflict them with some fear from the kings of the clan of so and so, at the end of their reign; and with hunger from high prices, and shortage in property, because of economic depression and no surpluses, and shortages in selves because of horrible death, and shortages in fruitage because of low yield in what are planted. And give good tidings to those who endure, by then, by the acceleration of the reappearance of AlQa'em (Imam In-Charge: AlMahdi (AJ)). Then he said to me: “O Mohammad, this is its interpretation, Allah said: *And no one knows its interpretation except Allah, and those well firm in Knowledge*". (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi, vol 5, p 41, h # 1463.) (twenty six sources).
From Imam Albaqir and Imam Alsadiq (AS): "Ahead of the AlQa'em (Imam In-Charge: AlMahdi (AJ)) there must be a year in which people will be hungry, and severely scared of killing, and shortage in money, selves, and fruitage. That is in the book of Allah, in the following verse: *And we shall afflict you with some fear, hunger, and shortage in selves and property, and in fruitage; and give good tidings to those who endure*". (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi, vol 5, p 43, h # 1464.) (seven sources).
‘Alfay’ (gains): This term is repeated in the tradition in all its forms. It is what the Muslims gain from the properties of the non-believers without war or strife. This revenue was called gains because the property was returned to the Muslims from the property of the non-believers without fighting. What the Muslims won from the property of the non-believers in war, is called booties.
‘Alsayf’ (sword): The known weapon; and the lengthy sea coast, close to the hills.
‘Aldaskarah’ (village) which yields one hundred thousand: A village, a silo, flat land, houses of non-Arabs, or a building like a palace surrounded by houses, i. e. large cities.
Alqatab (wooden saddle): A small saddle the size of the hump of a camel, i. e, small personal effects.
‘Shi’af Aljibal’ (mountain tops): The level areas on top of a mountain, where it is possible to settle on. ‘Mawaqi’ Alqatr’ (rainy places): Places where rain falls.
‘Afnan’ (branches): long and flowing tree branches, up and down and sideways.
‘Rusul ghanam’ : a flock of sheep.
Omar asked the leader of the believers Ali (AS): Is there a sign about that? He said: "Yes. Horrible killing, quick death, terrible plague, only a third of the people will stay alive at that time. A caller will call from the sky in the name of a man of my sons, and there will be much evidence that those alive will crave for death because of the horrors they see. The one who perishes will be at rest, and the one who will have some goodness with Allah will be saved. Then a man from my sons shall appear, who will fill earth with fairness and justice, after it was full of oppression and injustice …" (Mi’jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi, vol 3, p 141, h # 678.) (four sources).
The following narrative might be realized on the year of reappearance, or afterwards:
Na’eem bin Hamad, the tutor of Albokhari, narrated by his documentations, from Abdullah bin Mas’ood, from the Prophet (S), to have said: "… The Romans will attack all the Arabs who are left in their countries and kill them; that no Arab man or woman or child in the country of the Romans will be saved from killing". (Narrated by Albokhari, from Kitab Alfitan, of Na’eem bin Hamad Almorozi.)
