Hajj as a pastime !
Near the time of the Earthly Doomsday ]
Ibn Abass ra) narrated, The Prophet said” Prayers will be neglected, carnal desires will be pursued, transgressors will become leaders, it will not be possible to distinguish the truthful from the false, telling lies will become desirable, payment of Zakah will be taken as a burden, the believer will be deemed the most disgraceful and he will be pained at seeing evils( all around )and his heart will melt as salt in water but he will not be able to say anything. Rain will do no good it will fall out of season. Males will commit adultery with males , and females with females. Women will be dominate. The offspring will disobey their parents, friends will treat friends badly , sins will be taken lightly. Mosque will have external decorations and beauty and there will be worshipers too but there will be hypocrisy and mutual enmity in their hearts. Then will appear A people from the west who will dominate the weak amongst my people. People will produce copies of the Quran in letters of gold but will not act upon it. The Quran will be recited in a melodious way. Usuary will become rampant. Human blood will have no value, religion will have no helpers Singing women will be on the increase. The rich will perform Hajj as a pastime, the people of the middle classes will do so to conduct business and the poor to beg for charity
