24-The Return of Shirk and Islaam is wiped out after becoming Apparent

1- ‘Night and day will not pass away until al-Laat and al ‘Uzzaa are worshipped.” So ‘Ayesha said: O Messenger of Allaah! I thought that when Allaah sent down:

<<It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it prevail over all other religions, no matter how much the disbelievers detest it.>> that it would be complete. He -sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam- said: “There will be of that what Allaah wishes.’

87- “Islaam will become unknown like a garment is worn out due to constant washing, until fasting, prayer, nor the rituals of Hajj, nor charity are known. The Book of Allaah Azza wa Jal will be taken up in one night, and not even an Ayaah will remain on the earth. There will remain a group of people, (an old man and an old woman), who will say: We found our forefathers on this statement: ‘La illa ill Allaah’ so we also say it.”

Narrated by Ibn Majah (4049) and Hakim (4/473) from the way of Abu Muwaaawiyah on the authority of Abu Ma’Aleek al-Ashjaa’ee on the authority of Rab’aee bin Harrash on the authority of Hudayfah bin al-Yaaman in a narration ascribed to the Prophet: sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam, and he had extra wording: “Silaah bin Zafr said to Hudayfah: ‘What will ‘La illa ill Allaah’ Benefit them if they don’t know what is prayer nor fasting, nor the rituals of Hajj nor charity? ‘ Hudayfah turned away from him, but he repeated this to Hudayfah three times, and Hudayfah would turn away from him every time, then Hudyafah turned towards him on the third time and said: ‘O Silaah! It will save them from the fire.’ And he said this three times.’

From the benefits of this hadeeth:

There is some dangerous information in this hadeeth, which is that there will come a day upon Islaam, where its traces will be wiped out. And a day upon which the Qur’aan will be raised, and nothing will remain of it, not even one Ayaah will remain.

This will not happen absolutely, except after Islaam will colonize/control all over the planet earth, and Allaah’s word will be high. As is clearly mentioned in the text of the saying of Allaah Tabaraka wa Ta’ala:

<< It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to make it superior over all religions >> and as is explained by the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – in many Ahadeeth.

The Noble Qur’aan will not be raised at the end of time except as a preparation for the establishment of the last hour upon the most evil ones of creation. They will not know anything of Islaam whatsoever, not even the Tawheed of Allaah Ta’ala.

There is also an indication in the hadeeth to the greatness of the Qur’aan. It being present amongst the Muslims is the reason for their Deen to remain and its structure to be well solid and stable. Which can only occur by studying the Qur’aan and pondering over it and understanding it. That is why you should make a contract with Allaah to memorize it, until Allaah permits it to be taken up.

So, how greatly misguided are some of the blind followers, who hold the opinion that the Deen is preserved by the four schools of thought (Madhaaib), and that there is no harm upon the Muslims if their Qur’aan was lost, if this were to happen!!
