‏الفتن وأشراط الساعة‏ (The Book of Tribulations and the Signs of the Last Hour)
CHAPTER: THE TURMOIL WOULD GO LIKE THE MOUNTING WAVES OF THE OCEAN  

No. 6914

Hudhaifa repotted: We were one day in the company of 'Umar that he said: Who amongst you has preserved in his mind most perfectly the hadith of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) in regard to the turmoil as he told about it? I said: It is I. Thereupon he said: You are bold (enough to make this claim). And he further said: How? I said: I heard Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: There would (first) be turmoil for a person in regard to his family, his property, his own self, his children, his neighbours (and the sins comnaitted in their connection) would be expiated by fasting, prayer, charity, enjoining good and prohibiting evil. Thereupon 'Umar said: I do not mean (that turmoil on a small scale) but that one which would eme-ge like the mounting waves of the ocean. I said: Commander of the Faithful, you have nothing to do with it, for the door is closed between you and that. He said: Would that door be broken or opened? I said: No, it would be broken. Thereupon he said: Then it would not be closed despite best efforts. We said to Hudhaifa: Did Umar know the door? Thereupon he said: Yes, he knew it (for certain) just as one knows that night precede the next day. And I narrated to him something in which there was nothing fabricated. Shaqiq (one of the narrators) said: We dared not ask Hudhaifa about that door. So we requested Masrdq to ask him. So he asked him and he said: (By that door, he meant) 'Umar.

No. 6917

Jundub reported: I came on the day of Jara'a that a person was (found) sitting. I said: They would shed their blood today. That person said: By Allaah. not at all. I said: By Allaah, of course, they would do it. He said: By Allaah, they would not do it. I said: By Allaah, of course, they would do it. He said: By Allaah, they would not do it, and I have heard a hadith of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) which I am narrating to you in this connection. I said: You are a bad seat fellow. I have been opposing you since morning and you are listening to me in spite of the fact that you have heard a hadith from Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) (contrary to ray statement). I myself felt that there was no use of this annoyance. (He could tell me earlier that it was a hadith of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam], and I would not have opposed him at all.) I turned my face toward him and asked him and he was Hadrat Hudhaifa.
