The Destruction of the Ka'ba


One of the last signs of the Day of Resurrection is the destruction of the Ka'ba by Zul-Suwayqatayn. He is from Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and will destroy the Ka'ba in order to steal its treasure and Kiswah (Ka'ba's cover). The Ka'ba  is a holy shrine for Muslims, located at the center of the main mosque of Mecca, known as Masjid Al-Haram. It is the ancient shrine which was built by Abraham, and whose foundations were laid by Adam.

The Destruction of the Ka'ba will occur after no faithful Muslim remains, after the rapture of Muslims:

In the Tafsir (interpretation) of the Ayah "Until the Gog and Magog  are let through (their barrier)'" (al-Anbiya 21:96), it is reported by Ka'b Al-Ahbar that Zul-Suwayqatayn will first emerge at the time of Jesus, son of Mary. Jesus will lead a army of seven and eight hundred Muslim soldiers and march to fight Zul-Suwayqatayn. While they are marching towards Zul-Suwayqatayn, Allah will send a breeze from the direction of Yemen, which will take the soul of every faithful believer. Only the worst of people will be left, and they will begin to copulate like animals. Ka'b said: "At that time, the Hour (of Resurrection) will be very close."

AbduAllah ibn Amr said I heard the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم say: " Zul-Suwayqatayn from Al-Habasha ( Abyssinia or Ethiopia) will destroy the Ka'ba and steal its treasure and Kiswah (cover). It is as if I could see him now: he is bald-headed and has a distortion in his wrists. He will strike the Ka'ba with his spade and pick-axe." (Musnad Ahmad)

Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "It is as if I can see him now: he is Black and his legs are widely spaced (bow-legged). He will destroy the Ka'bah stone by stone." (Musnad Ahmad)

It was reported from 'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar that the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said, "Leave the Ahbash (Abyssinians or Ethiopians) alone so long as they do not disturb you, for no one will recover the treasure of the Ka'ba, except Zul-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia." (Abu Dawud)

Umar bin al-Khattab reported that he heard the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  say: "The people of Mecca will leave, and only a few people will pass through it. Then, it will be resettled and rebuilt; then, the people will leave it again, and no-one will ever return."

Shu'ba narrated that the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said: " The Hour (of Resurrection) will not be occur till the Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) is abandoned." (Bukhari)


Abu Hurairah said the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said: " Day and night will not come to an end until a freed man called Jahjaah holds sway." (Ahmad)   Few scholars believe  Zul-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia could be the person known as the Jahjaah who may appear at the end of the End Times.
