Sign of the End of Times: Hadith on Hajj

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

The Holy Prophet (S) said:

“Near the time of Qiyaamah the rich ones from amongst my Ummah will perform Hajj for the sake of travel and holiday; The middle class will perform Hajj for commercial purposes, thereby transporting goods from here to there while bringing commercial goods from there to here. The Ulamaa will perform Hajj for the sake of show and fame; The poor will perform Hajj for the purpose of begging.” (Kanzul Ummaal)

To attain a better understanding of just how well this hadith fits with the times we are currently in, read the following article which I have already written a post on: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/15/mecca-hotel-against-hajj-spirit

Kanz al-Ummal fi Sunan wal Aqwal wal Afwal, is the largest available unique
collection of Ahadith/Athar by the Hanafi Imam: Ali ibn Husamud-Din
al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, who died in the year 975 AH. It contains more than
46,000 narrations composed from many individual earlier collections. It is
in essence a continuation of Imam al-Suyuti’s Hadith collections, Jami
al-Saghir, its Zawa’id and Jami al-Kabir (Jam al-Jawami). The Kanz was
printed more than 100 years ago in Hyderabad, India.
