The Desolation of Blessed Madina & The Destruction of Holy Kabah



The Desolation of Madina

It is related that Usama said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, looked out on one of the stone castles of Madina and said, 'Do you see what I see? I see the places of sedition lying amidst your houses like the places where rain falls.'"

Usamah ibn Zayd said, Once the Prophet stood over one of the battlements of al-Madinah and asked the people, Do you see what I see? They said, No. He said, I see afflictions falling upon your houses as raindrops fall. (Bukhari, Muslim.)

It is related that Sufyan ibn Zuhayr said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say,
'Yemen will be conquered and people will be attracted to it, taking their families and all who obey them. Madina would have been better for them if they only knew.
Syria will be conquered and people will be attracted to it, taking their families and all who obey them. Madina would have been better for them if they only knew.
Iraq will be conquered and people will be attracted to it, taking their families and all who obey them. Madina would have been better for them if they only knew.'" (Bukhari)

MADINAH WILL REMAIN INHABITED AT THE TIME OF THE DAJJAL
It has been proven in the Sahih Ahadith, as already stated, that the Dajjal will not be able to enter Makkah and Madinah, and that there will be angels at the gates of Makkah to ward him off and prevent him from entering.

It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "Neither the Dajjal nor plague will be able to enter Madinah." As mentioned above, the Dajjal will camp outside Madinah, and it will be shaken by three tremors. Every hypocrite and sinner will go out to join the Dajjal, and every believer and Muslim will stay. That day will be called the Day of Purification (Yawm al-Khalas). Most of those who go out to join the Dajjal will be women. As the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "Verily it (Madinah) is good; its evil will be eliminated and its goodness will be obvious."
Allah SWT said:
"Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure, and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity'" (Al-Nur 24-26)
Madinah will remain inhabited during the days of the Dajjal, and during the time of Jesus son of Mary (AS), until he dies and is buried there. Then it will be destroyed.
'Umar ibn al-Khattab said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) say, 'A rider will go around Madinah and say, There used to be many Muslims here'" (Ahmad)
[From Ibn Kathir's The Signs before the Day of Judgment.]




It is related that Abu Hurayra said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say,
'They will leave Madina in spite of the good that it contains and only wild beasts will live in it - meaning beasts and birds of prey. 




The last persons to be gathered in it will be two herdsmen from Muzayna making for Madina, shouting to their sheep. 



They will find it empty. When they reach Thaniya al-Wada', 
they will fall down on their faces."


(Thaniya al-Wada':a pass at the Haram of Madina in the direction of Syria)
[The Sahih Collection of al-Bukhari Chapter 34. Chapters on the Virtues of Madina]

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE KA'BAH





'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) say, Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia will destroy the Ka'bah and steal its treasure and Kiswah. It is as if I could see him now: he is bald-headed and has a distortion in his wrists. He will strike the Ka'bah with his spade and pick-axe'." (Ahmad)

The time of the destruction  is quite apparent:

It was reported from 'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "Leave the Abyssinians alone so long as they do not disturb you, for no-one will recover the treasure of the Ka'bah except Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia."  (Abu Dawud, in the chapter on the prohibition of provoking the Abyssinians)



Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "It is as if I can see him now: he is black and his legs are widely spaced. He will destroy the Ka'bah stone by stone." (Ahmad)




'Umar ibn al-Khattab reported that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) say: "The people of Makkah will leave, and only a few people will pass through it. Then it will be resettled and rebuilt; then the people will leave it again, and no-one will ever return."

[From Ibn Kathir's The Signs before the Day of Judgment.]
