Understanding Kubra Doomsday: Evidence and Signs of Kubra Doomsday

Understanding the Doomsday of Kubra and its Signs – Believing in the coming of the last day is found in the fifth pillar of faith. Thus, as Muslims we must believe with all our hearts that the whole world will be destroyed.

There is no servant who knows the coming of the last day. Therefore, prepare provisions to be ready to face the final day. In this case, the provisions in question are good practices in the world.

The last day in Islam is known as the “Doomsday of Kubra”. Read more comments about the meaning of the apocalypse and the signs of the apocalypse.

Meaning of Kubra Doomsday

The word “kubra” comes from Arabic which means big. In other words, Kubra’s apocalypse can be interpreted as a big apocalypse. In this case, Kubra’s apocalypse means the destruction of the universe resulting in the destruction or destruction of humans, plants, and animals.

The things that will happen in the apocalypse are sea water overflowing like a tsunami, heavenly bodies will fall, volcanoes will erupt. All the destruction of nature will make all people try to find safety, but no one will be saved.

Thus, the Kubra doomsday or the last day or the destruction of the universe is the destruction of all living beings and will get eternal life in the afterlife.

Evidence of Doomsday According to Surahs in the Qur’an

1. Surah Al-Mu’Min verse 59

وَالَّذِيْنَ هُمْ بِرَبِّهِمْ لَا يُشْرِكُوْنَ ۙ


Indeed, the Day of Judgment will surely come. There is no doubt about it, but most people do not believe. (QS Al-Mu’min (40):59).

2. Surah Az-Zumar 68

وَنُفِخَ فِى الصُوْرِ فَصَعِقَ مَنْ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَمْ فِي الْرضِ إلا مَنْ شَاءَ اللہُ ْۗثُمُفِخَ فِيِ خْرٰى فَاِذَا ُمْ قِيَامٌ يَنْزُرُ


The trumpet was blown so that all (beings) in heaven and on earth died, except those whom God willed. Then, it was blown again. At that moment, they woke up (from their graves and) waited (for God’s decision). (QS Al-Mu’Min (39):68).

3. Surah Al-A’Raf verse 187



They asked you (Prophet Muhammad) about the Hour, “When will it happen?” Say, “Surely the knowledge about it is only with my Lord. No one (anyone) can explain the time of occurrence except Him. (Doomsday) is very heavy (chaos for the creatures) in heaven and on earth. It will not come to you except suddenly.” They ask you as if you know it. Say (Prophet Muhammad), “Indeed the knowledge about it is only with Allah, but most people do not know.”

4. Surah Ash-Shura verse 47


Fulfill the call of your God before there comes from God a day (Doomsday) that cannot be rejected. On that day you will have no refuge and you will not be able to deny (your sins).

5. Surah Ad-Dukhan verse 41

يَوْمَ لَا يُغْنِيْ مَوْلًى عَنْ مَّوْلًى شَيْـًٔا وَّلَا هُمْ يُنْصَرُونَۙ


(that is) the day (when) a loyal friend will not be able to benefit the other friends at all and they will not get help.

Evidence of Doomsday According to Hadith

1. HR. Bukhari and Muslim

From Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu’anhu, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Allah tabaraka wa ta’ala will hold the earth on the Day of Judgment, God will fold the sky with His right hand, then God will say; ‘I am the King, where are the kings who once ruled the earth?’

2. HR. Bukhari and Muslim

From Abdullah bin Mas’ud and Abu Musa, may God bless him and grant him peace, the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, “Indeed, when the apocalypse is about to occur, there will be days when ignorance will spread, knowledge will be lifted, and there will be a lot of al-Harj.” ” What al-harj means is murder.

Signs of Doomsday kubra

For Muslims knowing the signs of doomsday is a must. Knowing the signs of doomsday makes a Muslim believe more and more that the last day will come. Here are the signs of the apocalypse.

1. The emergence of Fire

The first sign of Kubra’s apocalypse is the appearance of fire that will gather all mankind. This fire comes out or appears from the crater of Aden. Aden Crater itself is on the slopes of a volcano in the country of Yemen.

The sign of doomsday is found in the Sahih Al-Bukhari chapter of the virtues of the Ansar VII h 272 from Anas RA it is mentioned:


Abdullah ibn Salam learned of the arrival of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) to Madinah (Hijrah). He also met the Prophet to ask about some things. He said, “I will ask three questions: what is the first sign of the apocalypse?” The Prophet SAW replied, “The first sign is fire that gathers people from east to west.”

2. The destruction of the Kaaba 

The second sign of the apocalypse is the destruction of the Kaaba. Someone who will destroy the Kaaba is called Zul-Suwayqatyn. It was someone from Abyssinia.

Abdullah ibn Amr once said, “I heard the Messenger of God SAW say that Zul Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia will destroy the Kaaba and steal property and kiswah .” He wanted to attack and destroy the Kaaba using a shovel.

Thus, with the destruction of the Kaaba, it can cause the number of servants who mention the name of Allah SWT to decrease. Although those who mention the name of Allah SWT are decreasing, the apocalypse will not happen.

Such a thing is reinforced by the Sahih Muslim hadith “this will not happen until there are no more people who say Allah.”

3. Sunrise from the West

The third sign of Kubra’s apocalypse is the rising sun rising from the west. If one day the sun has risen from the west then all the doors of human practice have been closed. This event only happened for one day.

What will you feel when you wake up in the morning and see the morning sun has risen from the west? If we believe that the Day of Judgment will come then we will not be confused and are ready to accept that it is a sign of the Day of Judgment.

The event of the sun rising from the west is also found in a hadith which means:

 There will be no apocalypse until the sun rises from its setting, when it has risen from the west and all people see it then they will all believe, and that is the time when the faith of a person who has never believed before is of no use. (HR Bukhari and Muslim, Ahmad, and Abu Dawud, from Abu Hurairah).

4. The emergence of Imam Mahdi 

The appearance of Imam Mahdi is the sign of the fourth apocalypse. Imam Mahdi is a very fair person and does not want injustice and enmity in the world.

Imam Mahdi is someone who comes from the descendants of Fatimah binti Muhammad from the line of Hasan bin ‘Ali RA. Imam Mahdi’s forehead is very wide and has a pointed nose because he also comes from the bloodline of the Prophet SAW.

During the leadership of Imam Mahdi, every human being will feel justice and prosperity. This is reinforced by the Hadith about the leadership of Imam Mahdi which means:

“Al Mahdi will be among my people. If the time is short (he rules) for 7 years, if not then 9 years. At that time my people will get a pleasure that they have never felt before. They will get a lot of food and they will not keep it. At that time, wealth was so abundant. Someone said, ‘O Imam Mahdi, give me something.’ Then he said, ‘Take it’.” (HR. Ibnu Majah)

5. The appearance of Dajjal

The appearance of Dajja is the sign of the fifth apocalypse. The appearance of Dajjal can be said to be the biggest test that humans will face before the coming of the Day of Judgment.

Dajjal is a man who comes from the descendants of Prophet Adam who came out at the end of time. Dajjal himself has physical characteristics, such as his eyes are written ka-fa-ra. The writing can only be read by believers.

In addition, the antichrist’s right eye is blind and his eyes are like grapes. When he first appeared in the world, he would claim to be a pious person, then claim to be a prophet, and finally claim to be a god.

Therefore, for Muslims it is necessary to have faith and ask Allah SWT for protection from Dajjal’s slander. In addition, we should also try to avoid meeting with the Dajjal so as not to be influenced by his slander, as found in the following hadith.

Prophet Muhammad SAW said, “Whoever hears about Dajjal, then stay away from him. By Allah, indeed someone came to him and thought that he was a believer, so he followed him because of the suspicion he brought.” (HR Abu Dawud from Imran bin Hushain).

6. The descent of Jesus. U.S

After the appearance of the Dajjal on earth who spreads slander and causes damage to the earth, Allah SWT sent Prophet Jesus to come down to earth against the Dajjal. The descent of Prophet Jesus to Earth is a sign of the sixth apocalypse.

The descent of Prophet Jesus to earth is already found in Al-Quran surah Ali-Imran verse 55.

It means

(Remember) when God said, “O Jesus, indeed I took you, raised you to Me, purified you from the disbelievers, and made those who follow you superior to the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection. Then, to Me you will return, then I will give a decision about what you always disagree about.

A person who believes will believe in the descent of Jesus to earth to lead and give good and true direction according to the teachings of Islam. As contained in Surah Az-Zukhruf verse 61.

وَاِنَّهٗ لَعِلْمٌ لِّلَّاعَةِ فَلَا تَمْتَرُنَّ بِهَا وَاتَّبِعُوْنِۗ هٰذَا صِرَاطٌ مُسْتَقِيْمٌ


“And indeed he (Isa) is truly a sign of the coming of the Day of Judgment. Therefore, don’t ever doubt about it (Doomsday) and follow MY guidance. This is the straight path.”

7. The appearance of the Cascading Beast 

The seventh sign of Kubra’s apocalypse is the appearance of a cascading animal that cannot be scientifically explained.

The appearance of cascading animals is already found in Al-Quran surah An-Naml verse 82.


When the words (terms of the destruction of the world) have come upon them, We will bring forth moving creatures from the earth who will tell them that mankind has not believed in Our verses all this time.

According to the interpretation experts, the appearance of animals cascading to the earth because Allah SWT wants to punish the infidels. In other words, someone who does not believe in Allah SWT they will be tortured.

8. The appearance of Gog and Magog

The eighth sign of the apocalypse is the appearance of Ya’Juj and Ma’Juj. Gog and Magog are a people who are very happy to do evil and damage on earth.

In the Al-Quran, Gog and Magog were already locked in a metal wall or fortress that had been made by Zulqarnain. This is stated in Al-Quran surah Al-Kahfi verse 94.


They said, “O Zulqarnain, indeed Gog and Magog are (nations) that cause destruction on earth, can we give you a reward for you to build a barrier between us and them?”

9. The Occurrence of a Terrible Earthquake

The ninth sign of the apocalypse is a terrible earthquake and other natural disasters. This sign of doomsday is also explained in a hadith narrated from Abdullah bin Hawalah Al-Azdi RA, the Prophet said:


“O Ibnu Hawaalah, if you have seen the caliphate spread from Madinah to Sham, there have been earthquakes, disasters and other exciting things. So at that moment, the Day of Judgment is closer than the distance between your hand and your head.” (HR Bukhari).

10. The appearance of Smog

The tenth sign of Kubra’s apocalypse is the appearance of smoke. Fog of smoke was created by Allah SWT to give punishment or torment to people who do not believe and like to commit immorality.

This is also stated in Al-Quran surah Ad-Dukhan verse 10-11.


So, look forward to the day (when) the sky brings a clearly visible smog. (which) covers humans (disobedience). This is a very painful punishment.


Resurrection is the fifth pillar of faith. In addition, doomsday or the last day is also contained in the Quran and Hadith. Thus, for Muslims it is obligatory to believe in the coming of the Day of Judgment or the last day.
