Qiyamat - When?

Slms,

We hear many times about the so called signs of Qiyamat. Below are ayat of Al-Qur'an clarifying the true position. Only Allah knows and not even Muhammad the messenger.

Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 63:
يَسْأَلُكَ النَّاسُ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَا عِندَ اللَّهِ وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ لَعَلَّ السَّاعَةَ تَكُونُ قَرِيبًا

PEOPLE will ask thee (Muhammad) about the Last Hour. Say: “Knowledge thereof rests with Allah alone; yet for all thou knowest, the Last Hour may well be near!”

Surah Al-Araf, Verse 187:
يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَا عِندَ رَبِّي لَا يُجَلِّيهَا لِوَقْتِهَا إِلَّا هُوَ ثَقُلَتْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَا تَأْتِيكُمْ إِلَّا بَغْتَةً يَسْأَلُونَكَ كَأَنَّكَ حَفِيٌّ عَنْهَا قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَا عِندَ اللَّهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

THEY WILL ASK thee [O Prophet] about the Last Hour: "When will it come to pass?" Say: "Verily, knowledge thereof rests with my Sustainer alone. None but He (Allah) will reveal it in its time. Heavily will it weigh on the heavens and the earth; [and] it will not fall upon you otherwise than of a sudden." They will ask thee (Muhammad) - as if thou couldst gain insight into this [mystery] by dint of persistent inquiry! Say: "Knowledge thereof rests with my Sustainer alone; but [of this] most people are unaware."

Surah An-Nahl, Verse 77:
وَلِلَّهِ غَيْبُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا أَمْرُ السَّاعَةِ إِلَّا كَلَمْحِ الْبَصَرِ أَوْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

And, Allah's [alone] is the knowledge of the hidden reality of the heavens and the earth. And so, the advent of the Last Hour will but manifest itself [in a single moment,] like the twinkling of an eye, or closer still: for, behold, Allah has the power to will anything.

Chapter 79 verses 42 to 45: “They ask thee (i.e. Muhammad) about the Hour Day of Judgement),-‘when will be its appointed time?’ Wherein art thou (i.e. Muhammad) (concerned) with the declaration thereof? With thy Rabb in the limit fixed therefor. Thou (i.e. Muhammad) art but a warner for such as fear it.” (cf: Chapter 3 verse 128)

Chapter 72 verses 21 & 22: “SAY: “IT IS NOT IN MY (i.e. Muhammad’s) POWER TO CAUSE YOU HARM, OR TO BRING YOU TO RIGHT CONDUCT.” Say: “No one can deliver me (i.e. Muhammad) from Allâh if I (i.e. Muhammad) were to disobey (Allâh), nor should I (i.e. Muhammad) find refuge except in Him (i.e. Allâh),”

Only Allah knows when Qiyamat will happen. People make all sorts of claims that the prophet Muhammad said when this or that happens Qiyamat is near. That's totally against AlQuran.
[24/06, 10:53] Ahmed Moosa: Read also the following verses that say exactly the same message. Muhammad knew nothing when Qiyamat will happen. Chapter 31 verse 34. Chapter 79 verses 42 to 46. Let us not make Allah's messenger a liar please.
