"Among the signs of the last days is that people will give salam to only those who they know." — Musnad of Imam Ahmad, #3848
أن من أشراط الساعة أن يسلم الرجل على الرجل لا يسلم عليه إلا للمعرفة

People love end-of-times prophecies. Muslims are no different. I quick visit to Youtube will reveal that Muslims equally revel in the coming apocalypse. Yet it seems that its onset will not be akin to a Michael Bay film, all slow motion and explosions — that part comes later. But rather it seems that it will be more subtle and even more terrifying and apparently we’ll play a hand in our own demise. And while the Hour cannot be hastened or put off, this prophetic narration gives pause to an all too familiar staple at far too many of our houses of worship. May Allah save us from ourselves.
