English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) was speaking to us when, a bedouin came and asked him: "When will the Last Day be?” The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) continued his talk. Some of those present thought that he had heard him but disliked the interruption and the other said that he had not hear him. When the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) concluded his speech he asked, "Where is the one who inquired about the Last Day?” The man replied: "Here I am.” The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) replied, "When the practice of honoring a trust is lost, expect the Last Day.” He asked: "How could it be lost?” He replied, "When the government is entrusted to the undeserving people, then wait for the Last Day.”
[Al-Bukhari Vol-1, Book 3, Hadith # 56].
Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Luqman Ayat 32. “But none denies Our Signs except every perfidious ungrateful” Here a very important sign of the nearness of the Day of Judgment has been mentioned: The affairs of the world will be in the hands of wicked and undeserving people. The sinners and wicked people will become the leaders of the world. The preaching pulpits would also be occupied by people who would be greedy and ignorant. They will be devoid of piety and abstinence.
