Hadith on return of idolatry (Arabic: حديث بعض هذه الأمة يعبد الأوثان) are some prophesies mentioned in the sayings of the prophet of Islam, Muhammad (ﷺ) foretelling that some people who call themselves Muslims will unite with polytheists in every affair including worship of idols in the end times. [1]

Prophesy Edit

In the Hadith collections, the prophet is reported to have said:

"The Hour shall not be established until tribes of my Ummah unite with the idolaters, and until they worship idols." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2219) [2]

"What I fear most for my nation is misguiding leaders. Some tribes among my nation will worship idols and some tribes among my nation will join the idolaters." (Sunan Ibn Majah 3952) [3]

"Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the characteristics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil. Then Satan would come to them in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives." (Sahih Muslim 2940 a) [4]

"The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa." (Sahih al-Bukhari 7116)" [5]
