Note: This article is longer than the usual ones on this site. I suggest reading the others first.
This is a non-exhaustive list of over 100 fulfilled Islamic prophecies, meaning there are more which I have decided to leave out. Additionally, the descriptions and explanations have been kept brief for the sake of brevity.
This is the first part of a two-part article, this one containing 50 prophecies and the next containing 51, God willing.
Out of the many prophecies made, there are only a handful that have not come true yet. Whoever is reading this right now should ask themselves these questions: How could someone make over 100 prophecies and have all of them come true after his death? At what point does it stop being a coincidence; when will the pattern become clear?
With that aside, let us begin.
The first four prophecies, marked with brackets, were prophesied to happen in this order after the Prophets (ﷺ) death. 
[The Muslim conquest of Jerusalem.]
The Muslims went from being persecuted by the pagans of Mecca to fighting the two superpowers of the region, the Byzantines and Sassanids. In the year 637 AD, Jerusalem was captured from the Byzantines by the Muslims. This was done under the rule of Umar ibn Al-Khattab, the second Caliph of the Rashidun. 
[Then, a plague will ravage the Muslims.]
In the year 638 AD, a plague dubbed the “Plague of Amwas” or the “Plague of Emmaus” ravaged the Muslims in Syria and ended in tens of thousands of deaths. This was also under the rule of Umar. 
[Then, an increase of wealth amongst the Muslims to the point that nobody would be found to accept sadaqah (Donations to the poor).]
This came under the rule of Uthman and the continued conquests which grew the Muslim empire rapidly. The expansion brought a large increase in wealth and fulfilled this prophecy. 
[Then, a massive affliction that no Arab home would escape.]
After the assassination of the Caliph Uthman in 656 AD, chaos was widespread throughout the entirety of Arabia and no Arab home was spared. This eventually led to the war between Mu’awiyah and Ali, where much killing took place. 
The barefoot Bedouins competing in the construction of tall buildings.
This is a prophecy that was fulfilled only about 15 years ago. After the discovery of oil in the desert lands inhabited by the poor and nomadic Bedouins, they became incredibly wealthy. These barefoot Bedouins living volatile lives then became some of the wealthiest people on Earth. Their sudden wealth led to them competing in the construction of tall buildings not only amongst themselves, but with the entire world as well. The land of the United Arab Emirates, once mostly inhabited by Bedouins, is now littered with skyscrapers and houses the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

The emergence of the Khawarij (An extreme deviant group that was the precursor to ISIS and their ilk). 
It was prophesied that a group will emerge from Iraq which would worship in such abundance that the other Muslims would be ashamed of their own. However, this group “will [also] recite the Qur'an which will not exceed their throats (they will not act on it) and they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out through the game”. Additionally, when the Prophet (ﷺ) was asked for more signs about this group, he said that another distinguishing characteristic will be their shaved heads.
The Khawarij eventually came and they fulfilled all of these signs. They came from Iraq and were extreme in their worship due to their flawed beliefs. To them, a major sin like fornication meant apostasy. This idea made them fear so heavily that they would sin and apostate that they went to extremes in worship in an attempt to avoid those sins.
Ironically, this same philosophy led to the other part of the prophecy coming true about them. That being the fact they would “go out of Islam as an arrow goes through the game”, i.e. they would apostate easily, which came from the burnout of acting in such a way along with attacking and excommunicating the rest of the Muslims.
Finally, the Khawarij also distinguished themselves by fully shaving their heads as a sign of asceticism, something that is not a part of Islam, which fulfilled the final part of the prophecy. 
The locations and names of the fallen at the Battle of Badr.
Before the decisive Battle of Badr, the Prophet (ﷺ) went on the battlefield with at least one of his companions. He placed his hand on different areas on the ground and said, “this is the place where so and so will be killed”, naming the to-be-dead and their deathplaces. After the battle, the companion saw that in the exact areas the Prophet (ﷺ) put his hand on, there lay the soldiers that he named. 
A trial where the one who sits is better than the one who stands.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The Last Hour will not come until the two parties (of Muslims) confront each other and there is a large-scale massacre amongst them and the claim of both of them is the same.” . This was briefly spoken about beforehand, and it is the war between Ali and Mu’awiyah. Both of them claimed to be the true leader of the Muslims due to their own interpretations of the events that unfolded after the chaos that came from the assassination of Uthman, which we will go into more detail on soon.
This split up the Muslims into three groups, one with Ali who were fighting Muawiyah, one with Muawiyah who were fighting Ali, and the last being the ones who realized that this exact event was prophesied beforehand.
When the Prophet (ﷺ) spoke about this trial, he said that those who are sitting during it will be better than the one who stands and that one should stay away from fighting at all costs [Sahih al-Bukhari Vol. 9, Book 88, Hadith 203]. This final group who realized that this trial was prophesied followed the Prophets (ﷺ) orders, dulling their swords and staying away from the fighting. They also tried to warn the others, but many did not see them as being correct and left them.
This is proven by the fact that the majority of the companions did not take part in the trial between Ali and Mu’awiyah.
Ibn Sirin said:
“The trial raged, and the companions of the Prophet were around ten thousand in number at that time; and less than a hundred of them attended it. In fact, there were not more than thirty of them.”
Jizya in Muslim areas prevented by the non-Muslims.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Iraq would withhold its [money and foodstuffs]; Syria would withhold its [money and foodstuffs], and Egypt would withhold its [money and foodstuffs]…”  and then said that the non-Muslims would prevent them. As explained by An-Nawawi, the money and foodstuffs mean the payment of Jizya, which is the tax taken from non-Muslims in a caliphate.
In other words, the hadith is saying that non-Muslims will prevent the Muslims from taking Jizya. We have now seen that these areas no longer take Jizya from their non-Muslim citizens due to foreign influence and pressure.
Additionally, the Prophet also said “you would recoil to that position from where you started”, referencing another hadith telling us that during this time Islam will be seen as strange once again, which has played a part in the removal of Jizya.
Numerous afflictions would befall the Muslims.
Usama once spoke of a time the Prophet (ﷺ) stood at the top of one of the taller buildings of Medina and said, "Do you see what I see? I see the spots where afflictions will take place among your houses, and these afflictions will be as numerous as the spots where raindrops fall." .
Some of the afflictions that came are spoken about in this article, but there are many that are not spoken about here. Among the trials that the early Muslims faced were the Khawarij, the assassination of Umar and Uthman, the fights between the armies of Ali and Mu’awiya, the Battle of Harrah that was caused by a tyrannical ruler killing the Muslims, and the Mu’tazilah taking over, then torturing and killing the Muslims to force their false ideology.
The killing of Umar would be the door to the trials that will afflict the Muslims.
Umar was once sitting amongst some of the other companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) and asked them if any of them remember what the Prophet (ﷺ) had said about the afflictions that the Muslims would face. Hudhaifa replied by telling Umar that there is no reason for him to be worried about those afflictions, as he will never experience them. He said, “Don't worry about it, O chief of the believers, for there is a closed door between you and them.”. Umar said, "Will that door be broken or opened?" Hudaifa replied, "It will be broken." Umar asked further, "Then it will never be closed?" and Hudhaifa replied in the affirmative. 
Later, when Hudhaifa was asked what is meant by “the closed door”, he replied that it is Umar. This meant that Hudhaifa was saying that Umar would never face any of the large afflictions that were prophesied as Umar himself was the door to them, and this door would be “broken”, i.e. Umar would be killed.
Things ended up unfolding as Hudhaifa had known back then, for Umar was assassinated and a massive amount of trials had befallen the Muslims right after, many mentioned in the prophecy above this one.
The brave soldier in Hellfire.
During one of the battles the Muslims had with the pagans, there was a brave warrior amongst the Muslims which the other Muslims looked at in awe. As the two armies rested in their camps, the Prophet (ﷺ) heard this man being praised and said “He is from the dwellers of the h**l-Fire." The people said were shocked and said, "Who amongst us will be of the dwellers of Paradise if this man is from the dwellers of the h**l-Fire?". Thus, one of the men decided to follow this seemingly brave man in his next battle.
Later on, that man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and told him “I testify that you are the messenger of Allah.”. He explained that as he watched the brave warrior, the warrior was wounded. The soldier responded by immediately threw himself onto his sword, impaling it through his chest and committing suicide. As the Prophet (ﷺ) predicted, there was an insincerity in this warriors heart that the others could not see which was exposed by his suicide. The Prophet (ﷺ) then explained that a person may outwardly show the deeds of the dwellers of paradise his whole life, but in reality will be in h**l, and vice versa. 
Liars will make up narrations from the Prophet (ﷺ).
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “There will be deceivers near the end of time, liars who will bring narrations you have never heard, neither you nor your fathers. Beware, lest they misguide you and afflict you with trials.” 
We have had people in the past who have fabricated narrations about the Prophet (ﷺ) and were caught out on it, like the infamous Al-Waqidi, and we now have people today fabricating hadiths as well.
The motives range from Muslims wanting to justify their reprehensible innovated practices in religion, to non-Muslims wanting to make Islam look bad with their baseless lies. There are many examples of the latter as well, some of these anti-Islam polemicists having somewhat large followings to this day. This ties into the next prophecy.
The deceitful will be trusted and the trustworthy will be denied.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Years of treachery will come over people in which liars are believed and the truthful are denied, the deceitful are trusted and the trustworthy are considered traitors…” .
This has applied in multiple periods of history but is especially relevant to what I spoke about previously. In the past, the fabricators of narrations were rejected from society and known to everyone as liars. Nowadays, the ease of creating a hugbox on the internet has allowed these deceivers to garner massive followings with no resistance. This has resulted in their ignorant followers believing these deceivers and denying the trustworthy.
The Hour will not be established until a man passes near a grave and rolls on it, wishing he was in it. 
The revival of the cult of Dhul-Khalasa by the tribe of Daws.
Idolatry was wiped out of Arabia and policies were put in place to keep it out of Arabia. Despite this, the prostitution cult of Dhul-Khalasa was prophesied to be revived by the tribe of Daws . To modern viewers, this seemed impossible, especially with the way our world currently is as we have moved very far from paganism. However, this prophecy would be fulfilled in our modern world, over 1300 years after it was made. This prostitution cult of Dhul-Khalasa would be found and destroyed once again in the 1900s.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The Hour will not begin until time passes quickly, so a year will be like a month, and a month will be like a week, and a week will be like a day, and a day will be like an hour, and an hour will be like the burning of a braid of palm leaves.” 
What is meant by “time passing quickly” is that the days will feel like they are passing quicker and that the people will do less beneficial deeds due to how fast time feels like it is going. Almost everybody I know relates to this, whether they know about the prophecy or not.
There will be thirty deceivers who gain a significant following and become a trial, each claiming to be a prophet of God. 
There have been many claimants to prophethood who have gained a following while causing many issues for the people, whether that be through deceit or by causing harm to the people. Some examples are Musaylimah the Liar, Joseph Smith, Shoko Asahara, and Mukhtar al-Thaqafi, all of them ending up harming and killing many due to their actions; Shoko Asahara causing the relatively recent Tokyo Subway Sarin Gas Attacks.
Killing with no reason known to the killer or killed.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “A time would come when the murderer would not know why he has committed the murder, and the victim would not know why he has been killed.” .
This will be due to widespread ignorance and killing. You do not need to look farther than the countless massacres that have happened throughout history, or even the local news, to see this in action. “Teen McDonald's worker killed in 'random' shooting by man at drive-thru.”
The disappearance of religious knowledge.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said that religious knowledge will be taken away by the death of religious scholars. After the death of the scholars, “people will take as their leaders’ ignorant persons who, when consulted, will give their verdict without knowledge. So they will go astray and will lead the people astray.” .
Today, most of the scholars who stick to the texts of the classical scholars are reaching the end of their lives. It has become common to look on the news and see that another one of these scholars has died due to health complications from old age.
People will take religious knowledge from the ignorant.
As this is happening, the laymen are being led astray by people who claim to be scholars while ignoring, and sometimes even attacking, the classical scholars and their positions.
Through the deaths of the learned scholars and the rise of the ignorant, this prophecy is coming true right in front of our eyes.
The fighting of the Muslims with the Mongols.
When thinking about the relation of the Muslims with the Mongols, most people think of the infamous “Siege of Baghdad” of 1258 AD. What is not as well known, however, is that this exact event was prophesied in precise detail by the Prophet Muhammad hundreds of years before it happened.
Additionally, the Prophet (ﷺ) said that the Muslims would fight a people with flat faces and small eyes wearing shoes and clothes made of hair (i.e. fur) . This is the exact description of the Mongols and their clothing. 
A band of rebels would kill ‘Ammar. 
‘Ammar, a companion of the Prophet (ﷺ), was told during the Battle of the Ditch that he would be killed by a band of rebels. Three decades after the prophecy was made, the Battle of Siffin, which is one of the battles between Ali and Muawiyah, had begun. Right before ‘Ammar had gone to battle, he asked for a drink. As ‘Ammar saw that he was given milk, he laughed and said, “The Prophet (ﷺ) told me that the last drink I would have from this world would be milk.” . Finally, he went out to fight the rebellious group with Muawiyah and was martyred.
The end of the Emperor’s influence.
The Arab tribe of Quraysh had embraced Islam, but something worried them. They relied heavily on the trade routes to and from Greater Syria and Iraq and they feared that they would be blocked from using them. What made them worry was the fact that both Greater Syria and Iraq were controlled by the Byzantium and Sassanid empires, empires that had their leaders reject Islam after being called to it.
When this worry was brought forth to the Prophet (ﷺ), he told them: “When Chosroes dies, there will be no Chosroes after him; and when Caesar dies, there will be no Caesar after him, [and] you will spend their treasures in the path of God.”  meaning that once these rulers pass away, their empires will lose their influence in these areas. As the Prophet (ﷺ) said, these empires lost their influence on these areas once their current rulers died, the Sassanid Empire even collapsing completely soon after.
The two world superpowers at the time, the Byzantines and the Sassanids, were in a b****y war with one another with the Sassanids clearly coming out on top. The Sassanids had taken a massive amount of land from the Byzantines, and the collapse of the Byzantine Empire seemed to be imminent. Right at this time, though, God spoke through the Prophet (ﷺ) with this prophecy:
“The Byzantines have been defeated in the nearest land. But they, after their defeat, will triumph within three to nine years. The whole matter rests with Allah before and after victory.” Qur’an 30:2-4.
Here is what Edward Gibbon had to say in “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” about this prophecy:
“At the time when this prediction is said to have been delivered, no prophecy could be more distant from its accomplishment, since the first twelve years of [the Byzantine King] Heraclius announced the approaching dissolution of the [Byzantine] empire.”
This prophecy was not only seemingly impossible to fulfill, but there was also a ticking time bomb because of the time frame given. If nine years pass and the Byzantines do not make a comeback, it would be over for the Prophet (ﷺ). However, about seven years after this prophecy was made, the Byzantines made an unbelievable comeback and had taken back all of the lands they lost, fulfilling the prophecy.

The destruction of the Sassanid Empire.
This prophecy took place close in time to the prophecy beforehand. When the Prophet (ﷺ) was sending letters to the kings of the surrounding empires inviting them to Islam, the kings reacted in very different ways. One of those kings was Khosrow II, also called Chosroes II. Khosrow II took a single look at the letter from the Prophet (ﷺ), saw that the Prophets (ﷺ) name was written before his, and tore up the letter.
When the Prophet (ﷺ) got the news of this, he prophesied that the same way Chosroes tore apart the letter, his empire will be torn apart.
Keep in mind once again that the Sassanid Empire was beating the Byzantines so hard at the time that the Byzantine Empire seemed like it would collapse soon. The Sassanids were seemingly at their peak due to how much land they had recently conquered.
Despite this, soon after this prophecy was made the Sassanid Empire would be flung into chaos, with Chosroes II’s family being massacred by his own son, years of civil war, and constant change of rulership. The Sassanid Empire would then collapse completely.
Daryaee Touraj states in “SASANIAN PERSIA: the Rise and Fall of an Empire”:
“In a matter of years, Khusro II went from a world conqueror, emulating the Achaemenid territorial integrity, to a humiliated king…”

The Muslims would be the ones to take over the Sassanid Empire.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “There would lie open for a group of Muslims the treasures of the family of Chosroes, which would be in the white palace.” . Not too long after the Prophet (ﷺ) passed away, the Muslims had become so powerful that they took over Persia and gave the final blow to the Sassanid Empire, destroying it forever. When the Muslims entered their conquered land, the white palace where the Chosroes kept an immense amount of treasure laid wide open for them.
Prevalence of fornication in public.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “There will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse.”  meaning fornication in the public space will become common.
This has become common and accepted in Western society due to general degeneracy and pornography. So common, in fact, that there are people making guides on the internet on how to fornicate in public without getting caught. Additionally, the NY Times reports that people having s*x in public is becoming more and more common, with 22% of Americans reporting having s*x in public in the preceding year alone.
Open sexual immorality will result in diseases unknown to the peoples’ predecessors.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “[Sexual] immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they commit it openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among the predecessors will spread among them.” .
This plays a part in the previous prophecy. Once a people embrace this degeneracy of fornicating in the streets and being open about it, they will be punished with diseases unknown to their forefathers. Up until the 1980s, AIDs was never known to the people, yet AIDs now ravages much of the lands that have openly embraced fornication and public s*x as normal. Some people theorize it existed since the 1920s, but we can only speculate on the origin of AIDs and when the first infection was.
Children will treat their parents with disrespect, neglecting and insulting them.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “[One of the signs of the Hour is] that the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and master.” .
There are several views among the scholars as to what this means. The view favored by Ibn Hajar is that there will be widespread disobedience among children, so that a child will treat his mother as an oppressive master treats his slave woman, with negligence and insults. With the widespread philosophy of individualism in the West, and this philosophy being imported by the West into other cultures, people have stopped caring about anything but themselves. Nowadays, the family structure has become so broken in the West that it is acceptable to throw your parents in a nursing home and never see them again in your life.
Who will be the first of the Prophets (ﷺ) family to pass away after him?
While the Prophet (ﷺ) was on his deathbed, he called his daughter, Fatima, to him. He whispered to her one thing, and she cried, then he whispered a second thing to her and she laughed. The Prophet (ﷺ) had told her at first, “Gabriel used to review the Qur’an with me one time each year, and he reviewed it twice with me this year. I do not see this [to mean] except that my time has arrived, and you will be the first of my family to catch up with me.” and she cried. Then he told her, “Are you not pleased to be the queen of the believers [in Paradise]?” so she laughed. 
This is two prophecies in one, but I will only count it as one. Since Gabriel reviewed the Qur’an twice with the Prophet (ﷺ) that year, that meant that the Prophet (ﷺ) would not survive to reach the next year. Additionally, he told his daughter Fatima that she would be the first to “catch up with him”, i.e. she would be the first to die after the Prophet (ﷺ). Things ended up unfolding exactly as he said, as Fatima died less than a year after the Prophet (ﷺ), being the first to catch up with him.
The next two prophecies are part of one hadith.
The martyrdom of Umar.
The Prophet (ﷺ) once climbed Mount Uhud with Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, Umar, and Uthman, and the mountain shook. The Prophet responded by saying “Be firm Uhud, for upon you are none other than a Prophet, a Siddiq, and two martyrs.” .
The Prophet describes himself and Abu Bakr by their known titles, then he names Umar and Uthman as martyrs.
Later on, after the Prophet (ﷺ) and Abu Bakr passed away, Umar had become the leader of the Muslims. Things were very good for the citizens under the Caliphate and everything seemed to be going smoothly for everyone involved. However, one of the Zoroastrian slaves, Abu Lulu, felt that he was not being paid well enough by his master. Despite Umar not being the one allegedly underpaying him, Abu Lulu decided to assassinate him during prayer. As the Muslims prayed with Umar as their imam, Abu Lulu killed Umar by stabbing him in the side with a poisoned dagger, then proceeded to kill multiple other people praying in the mosque, then finally killing himself.
Umar was thus martyred while leading the prayer.
The martyrdom of Uthman.
After the sudden martyrdom and assassination of Umar, the door to trials had swung wide open on the Muslims.
Uthman had been chosen to be the Caliph of the Muslims, ruling over them as a just ruler. Nobody opposed him except those who were constantly warned and reprimanded for their love of rebellion and evil. The rebels who opposed Uthman were forgiven after they apparently repented multiple times, but they returned to their evil ways once again. They had spread lies and fabrications about Uthman, justifying to themselves the killing of him in the name of “justice”, and thus took the steps to murder Uthman.
They surrounded Uthman in his own home, demanding that he give up his role as leader of the Muslims using the lies they had spread amongst themselves as justification. Eventually, they broke into his house and killed Uthman in his own home as he read the Quran.
Uthman was martyred just like the Prophet (ﷺ) had prophesied.
This group of rebels mirrors Abu Lulu in a way. Before the door to trials was opened with the assassination of Umar, there was only one who ended up causing trials to the Muslims. Afterwards, that increased to a group with the rebels against Uthman. Later in part 2, we will see that these groups that caused chaos increased in size even further, God willing.
The hypocrites will demand Uthman to “remove his shirt”.
As established in the past point, evil people had demanded Uthman to give up his role as leader of the Muslims with the threat of death, but why did he not just give up his role? Uthman did not even choose himself to be the leader and he lived an ascetic lifestyle, so it was not for power or wealth as he did not desire those things. So what was it?
The reason is that the Prophet (ﷺ) knew that some evil people would demand Uthman to give up his leadership and threaten him, so he warned Uthman about it. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to Uthman, “O 'Uthman! Indeed Allah may give you a shirt, and if [some of the people] wish that you take it off, do not take it off for them." . The meaning of “a shirt” is the role of the leader of the Muslims, and the rebels demanded that Uthman “take off his shirt” i.e. give up his leadership.
So Uthman was warned that people will demand he gives up his leadership and that he should not listen to them. That is why he refused to give it up despite him having no attachment to it.
Hassan will be the one to reconcile the groups of Ali and Mu’awiyah.
Further prophesying how the events would unfold during the massive trials that would inflict the Muslims, the Prophet (ﷺ) also knew who would end up mending much of the issues that came forth. He took his grandson, al-Hassan, and said "This son of mine is a Chief and I hope that Allah will help him bring about reconciliation between two Muslim groups." .
Just as the Prophet (ﷺ) predicted, al-Hassan ended up mending the bond between the two groups that split off from one another. After the martyrdom of Ali, his son al-Hassan was given the role of being the leader of the Muslims. He saw an opportunity in this and gave leadership to Muawiyah. This helped unite the two groups of Ali and Muawiyah, as the son of Ali had united with Muawiyah after their conflict, showing to the people that they have reconciled.
(36-39) Um Haram and the Muslim conquests.
Um Haram informed us that she heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, "Paradise is granted to the first batch of my followers who will undertake a naval expedition." Um Haram added, I said, 'O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! Will I be amongst them?' He replied, 'You are amongst them.' The Prophet (ﷺ) then said, 'The first army amongst my followers who will invade Caesar's City [Constantinople] will be forgiven their sins.' I asked, 'Will I be one of them, O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)?' He replied in the negative." 
Um Haram ended up being in the first Muslim army unit which took a naval expedition, and this happened under the Caliphate of Mu’awiyah. However, she died shortly after and did not live to witness or partake in the conquest of Constantinople .
Ibn Hajar said, “This contains multiple prophecies by the Prophet ﷺ of what would take place, and it all occurred just as he said, and hence is considered among the signs of his prophethood.
Of them is that his nation would remain after him, and that among them are those who would be strong, formidable, and a consequential force against the enemy, and that they [the Muslims] would conquer territories until the army rides the sea,
and that [it would be so soon that] Um Haram would live until that time,
and that she would be with that army who rides the sea,
and that she would not live to see the second military campaign [to Constantinople].”

“Muslims” rejecting the actions and sayings of the Prophet (ﷺ) and only referring to the Qur’an, despite both being revelation.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I have surely been given the Quran and something like it along with it. Soon the time is come when a man will recline on his couch, saying: Only follow the Quran, make lawful what you find in it as lawful and outlaw what you find in it as unlawful.” 
What the Prophet (ﷺ) is referring to when saying “something like” the Qur’an, he means his own sayings and actions when it comes to religious matters, which is also called the Sunnah.
Hassaan ibn ‘Atiyah said, “Gabriel used to bring the Sunnah down to the Prophet (ﷺ) as he used to bring the Qur’an down to him.” .
In recent years, a new sect that claims Islam has emerged. They call themselves the “Quranists” or “Quraniyoon” because they reject every Hadith and only refer to the Qur’an. Despite this clear warning from the Prophet (ﷺ) centuries ago, they still fell into this trap.
Women will be “clothed yet naked” and would have what resembles a camel’s hump on their heads.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said that he was shown the denizens of h**l, and there were two that he had never seen before. One of them will be talked about in part 2 of this article, God willing, and the other is this: “women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something on their heads that looks like the humps of camels, leaning to one side” .
So they would be women who would walk in a way to get sexual attention from those in the streets while being clothed, yet naked, i.e. clothes that are so revealing they may as well not be wearing anything. Anybody who has seen how the modern dress has evolved will know that there are many examples of this today, but I will not go into specifics.
Additionally, they would have something on their heads that resembles a camel’s hump. This has happened in the past with famous hairstyles, but now it is done even by those who wear “hijab”. The “turban hijab” that the likes of Ilhan Omar wear today is exactly as described in this hadith.
Once again though, despite the Prophet (ﷺ) warning of these exact traps, many self-proclaimed “Muslims” fall into them anyway.
The degeneration of the Muslims’ morals.
As somewhat of a continuation of the past prophecy, the degeneration of morals, especially sexual, would not be purely amongst the disbelievers. Despite how conservative Islam is when it comes to minimizing any possibility for fornication, the morals of some Muslims would degrade as well.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “There will be in the end of my nation men who ride chariots who are [in reality] pseudo-men; they will drop off their women, at the gates of the mosques, who are clothed [and yet] naked. Upon their heads will be the likes of a lean camel’s hump.” .
So this immorality would not only stop at just being among the actions of the women, just in the public level, but the men would allow and promote it, and it would creep into religious sites like mosques as well. Also, as explained previously, the camel hump “turban hijab” on their heads has even become a trend in some groups. We can see this prophecy being the reality in many places in the west, especially areas where extreme liberalism has become accepted and the norm.
The killing of Umaya bin Khalaf.
Umaya bin Khalaf was a heinous man. Once Islam was beginning to be preached in public and idolatry was spoken against, the pagans of Quraysh increased in animosity towards the Muslims. They started to torture and kill the Muslims in the streets to force them to renounce their Islam for years on end. Umaya was one of these men, as he took his slave, Bilal, and force him to lie on the hot desert sand while a large rock was placed on his chest.
Despite his staunch resistance against Islam, he subconsciously accepted it as the truth. When he heard that the Prophet (ﷺ) had predicted that the Muslims would kill him, Umaya was terrified. He took every precaution to avoid any conflict with the Muslims as he knew that the Prophethood of Muhammad (ﷺ) was true, and thus heeded this warning. He swore to himself, “By Allah, I will never leave Mecca.”.
Then the day came when Abu Jahl was rallying the pagans to fight the Muslims. Umaya still had fear in his heart due to the prophecy, and thus refused to go, but Abu Jahl would not relent on Umaya. Eventually, Umaya broke and said that he would go out to fight the Muslims, but on the condition that he would buy the best camel he could and that he would only go for a short distance to protect himself.
Umaya’s wife knew of the prophecy and was also scared for him so she reminded him of it as he was heading out, but he comforted her by telling her he would take the precautions and not be out for long. Despite his best efforts to avoid battle and to take as many precautions as possible, he was caught in battle with the Muslims and was killed in the Battle of Badr .
The history of Uwais al-Qarani.
While the Prophet (ﷺ) was still alive, he told Umar ibn al-Khattab about a pious man that he would meet in the future. He told Umar that this man would be named Uwais coming as reinforcements from Yemen, being from the tribe Qaran of Murid. Additionally, Uwais would have had his leprosy cured except for the space of a coin and that his mother would be alive and his treatment of her would be well.
Years later, after the Prophet (ﷺ) had passed away, reinforcements from Yemen came to aid the Muslim army and Umar was there. He remembered what he had heard from the Prophet (ﷺ) and asked around for Uwais.
Umar went around asking “Is there amongst you Uwais b. 'Amir?” until he met Uwais. Umar continued to check every attribute of Uwais that the Prophet (ﷺ) had described and they were all accurate. Umar then said, “I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) say: “There would come to you Uwais b. Amir with the reinforcement from the people of Yemen. (He would be) from Qaran, (the branch) of Murid. He had been suffering from leprosy from which he was cured but for a spot of a dirham. His treatment with his mother would have been excellent. If he were to take an oath in the name of Allah, He would honour that. And if it is possible for you, then do ask him to beg forgiveness for you (from your Lord).”” So Uwais prayed for Umar. Then Umar asked Uwais where he was going and offered to make his living easier there, but Uwais replied that he would rather live amongst its poor .
Literacy will become widespread.
“Many of us take for granted the abundance of books that are available in the modern age. However, the majority of people in history have never even held a book in their hands. One reason is the lack of education as most people used to be illiterate so there was not a big demand for books.
Another reason is scarcity; books were difficult and expensive to produce because each copy had to be written manually by hand. This has been the norm for most of human history, and seventh-century Arabia was no different. Muhammad was born into a society in which very few people could read or write. It is estimated that the number of people who were literate in his locality of Mecca did not exceed seventeen. Muhammad (ﷺ) himself could not read or write. There were even whole societies that didn’t have any books, they didn’t write anything down because they only had an oral language.” [The Forbidden Prophecies p.69-70]
Additionally, the suppression of knowledge and the few books that were written was taking place during the life of the Prophet (ﷺ), as he was alive during the Christian Dark Ages. Despite all of this, he prophesied that “the pen would prevail” meaning that reading and writing will become widespread . It is an incredibly unintuitive prophecy to make, but we now see it as our reality.
Centuries later, the printing press was created and books started to become widespread, with literacy along with it. “To put this into perspective, the fifteenth century saw about the same number of manuscripts printed in Europe as had been produced by hand during the entire preceding fourteen centuries.” [Idib. p.71].
But ignorance will increase simultaneously.
Paradoxically to the last point, the Prophet (ﷺ) also said, “ignorance will become widespread.” . At face value, it seems contradicting to say that people will become literate and start reading and writing, while also saying that ignorance will become widespread at this time. How could this be the case?
Sadly, this is also our world today. While most of the modern world has access to millions of books right at their fingertips for free, ignorance has become a massive problem. With the spread of the internet came the spread of fringe communities coming together and confirming each others false beliefs over and over. In the past, if you were wrong about something then people would likely tell you to stop, but now these people have found communities where their every thought will be accepted and parrotted with no resistance. Whenever any resistance does come up, however, they are insulted, berated, and kicked out of the community to keep up the facade they have built up over the years.
The reader has likely come across some of these groups and been baffled by them, as I have.
The windy night.
“When we [were traveling and] reached Tabuk, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There will be a strong wind tonight and so no one should stand and whoever has a camel, should fasten it." So we fastened our camels. A strong wind blew at night and a man stood up and he was blown away to a mountain called Taiy.” .
A time will come when someone getting 100 dinars will be dissatisfied.
When it comes to the prophecies that were foretold, it is known that some may happen multiple times, and this is one of them.
The Prophet said that one of the signs of the Hour would be “the increase of wealth to such an extent that even if one is given one hundred Dinars” . 100 Dinars is roughly the equivalent of 3,300 USD today.
This came true during the aforementioned period of wealth the Muslims experienced when they could not find anyone to give charity to, but it is also true today in some areas. I have seen multiple people today stating that if they were given a couple thousand dollars, they would not be happy about it. The reason being that it is pretty much only enough for a month or two of their rent. They have been pushed into surviving paycheck to paycheck and a large sum of cash like that is only seen as a temporary relief.
Muslims will be many but the non-Muslims will devour them.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The people will soon summon one another to attack you just as people eating invite others to share their dish.” Someone asked: “Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?” He replied: “No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the chests of your enemy and cast wahn into your hearts.” Someone asked: “What is wahn?” He replied: “Love of the world and hatred of death.” .
“This prediction accurately describes the radical turn of events that took place in the Muslim world in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Prior to this, the Muslim lands had grown to be some of the most powerful in the world.
From the time of the death of Muhammad until the nineteenth century, the Muslims had large empires which were economically, politically, militarily, technologically, and educationally far ahead of most of the world. In the nineteenth and twentieth century the unthinkable happened, nearly all of the Muslim world from Indonesia in the far east to Libya in the far west was occupied, colonized, and militarily defeated by [various] non-Muslim nations…
In the early twentieth century, there were an estimated 200 million Muslims, representing 12.5% of the world’s population. But their considerable numbers could do nothing to prevent the defeat, the non-Muslim nations came, divided, conquered, and invited each other to take the Muslim lands, just as Muhammad foretold.” [The Forbidden Prophecies p.78].
The modern borders of the Middle East are almost all the result of the partitioning of Muslim land between colonial powers like Britain and France after WWI.
Sudden death will increase.
The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that one of the signs of the Hour would be “an increase of sudden deaths” .
At the time, people would rarely ever suddenly die as many of the deaths would come from things like battles and old age. The only people who would ever truly experience something like “sudden death” at the time would be those who would have heart attacks, but heart attacks would have been much rarer than they are today. Now, due to the modern diet and lifestyle, heart attacks are increasing even amongst the young, and even in areas that are not exceptionally wealthy.

Sunan Ibn Majah 4036, Authenticated by Al-Albani
Musnad Ahmad, 10560
From the Encyclopedia of Mongolia and the Mongolian Empire: “Valuable furs, especially sable and ermine, were worn in winter… In winter the underlayers were made of skin with the fur inmost, while with the outer layer the fur faced out, at least on the upper part.”. About the footwear: they would wear fur covers named degtii over their boots.

Note: This article is longer than the usual ones on this site. I suggest reading the others first.
This is a non-exhaustive list of over 100 fulfilled Islamic prophecies, meaning there are more which I have decided to leave out. Additionally, the descriptions and explanations have been kept brief for the sake of brevity.
Out of the many prophecies made, there are only a handful that have not come true yet. Whoever is reading this right now should ask themselves these questions: How could someone make over 100 prophecies and have all of them come true after his death? At what point does it stop being a coincidence; when will the pattern become clear?
Here is part 2 of the 101 Fulfilled Islamic Prophecies list, this part containing the final 51 prophecies.
With that aside, let us begin.
The appearance of a Fire from Hijaz which would illuminate the necks of the camels of Busra.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The Last Hour would not come until fire emits from the earth of Hejaz, [a fire] which would illuminate the necks of the camels of Busra.” , Hejaz being the modern equivalent of western Saudi Arabia and Busra being a city in Syria. Keep in mind that these two areas are hundreds of kilometers apart.
Approximately 600 years after this prophecy was made, there was a massive volcanic eruption in Hejaz which both terrified the people around it and illuminated the necks of the camels of Busra at night.

The extension of the inhabitants of Medina.
The Prophet (ﷺ) prophesied that the inhabitants of Medina would extend to reach the area of Ihab or Yahab which are miles away from the original area of the city of Medina . Now, Medinas inhabitants extend to these areas and further.
The Muslim conquest of Greater Syria
“One of the greatest hardships to befall Muhammad was the Battle of the Trench. In the year 627 CE, a coalition army of pagan Arabs, numbering 10,000 men, attacked the only Muslim city in the world at the time, Medina. This was a good opportunity for the enemies of Islam to wipe out Muslims from the face of the earth. The Muslims were outnumbered three to one, and for two whole weeks they were under siege….
Shortly before the battle commenced, whilst the Muslims were digging a trench around the city of Medina in preparation for the impending attack, when they were facing impossible odds and were staring in the face of certain defeat, Muhammad made a bold prediction:”
The Prophet (ﷺ) then prophesied that the Muslims would conquer Greater Syria, as well as
The Muslim conquest of Persia, and
The Muslim conquest of Yemen. 
“Muhammad (ﷺ) made the astonishing claim that the Muslims would not only take the lands of Yemen and Greater Syria, which was under the occupation of the Roman empire, but that they would also defeat the mighty Persian empire, one of the world’s great superpowers.”.
When the Prophet (ﷺ) spoke about the Muslims conquering Persia, one of the companions was shocked. This is because it seemed impossible for the tiny Muslim state to defeat the world superpowers of the time. However, within a decade of the Prophets (ﷺ) death, this all came true.
“The astonishing way that the Muslims defeated the superpowers captured the world by surprise, as historian Barnaby Rogerson explains:
"You have to remember, that the two great superpowers were the Byzantine empire [Eastern Roman empire] and Sassanid Persia, they were the dominant powers. If you’re putting it in a modern parlance it’s a bit like the Eskimos taking on the United States of America and Russia”.”. 
Ali will fight the Khawarij.
As spoken about in the first article, Ali and Mu’awiyah became leaders of the two groups of Muslims that split at the time. The Prophet (ﷺ) had prophesied this split beforehand, but also implicitly mentioned that Ali would be closer to the truth. This is unanimously accepted by Muslim scholars.
This is important here because the Prophet (ﷺ) also prophesied that the Khawarij would be fought by “the group closest to the truth”, i.e. Ali and those with him .
Additionally, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "… [Dhul-Khuwaisira, father of the Khawarij] has companions who pray and fast in such a way that you will consider your fasting negligible in comparison to theirs. They recite Qur'an but it does not go beyond their throats (i.e. they do not act on it) and they will desert Islam as an arrow goes through a victim's body, so that the hunter, on looking at the arrow's blade, would see nothing on it… The sign by which they will be recognized is that among them there will be a black man, one of whose arms will resemble a woman's breast or a lump of meat moving loosely. Those people will appear when there will be differences amongst the people." .
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said, “I testify that I heard this narration from Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) and I testify that `Ali bin Abi Talib fought with such people [the Khawarij], and I was in his company. He ordered that the man should be looked for. The man was brought and I looked at him and noticed that he looked exactly as the Prophet (ﷺ) had described him.”
Thus, Ali was prophesied to fight the Khawarij, which came to pass. Adding onto that, there is also a second prophecy here which came true, which is that
There will be a man amongst the Khawarij with the above traits.
The caliphate will be for thirty years, then there will be a monarchy after that.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "The Caliphate will be in my Ummah for thirty years, then there will be monarchy after that.”
Abu Bakr ruled for approximately two years, then Umar for ten, then Uthman for twelve, then Ali for five, then after Hassan ruled for a while, he gave Mu’awiyah leadership and the Umayyad dynasty came.
Safinah, the narrator of this hadith who was a companion of the Prophet (ﷺ), said to Sa’id, “Count the Caliphate of Abu Bakr,” then he said: “Count the Caliphate of 'Umar and the Caliphate of 'Uthman.” Then he said to me: “Count the Caliphate of 'Ali.", then Sa’id said: "So we found that they add up to thirty years." .
Ibn al-Arabi al-Maliki (not the heretic) said, “And the promise of the Truthful (ﷺ) came to pass… [the period of the caliphate] neither exceeded nor fell short a day, so glory be to the All-Encompassing; there is no other Lord but He.” .
A great murderer would be born from Thaqif.
One of the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ), Abdullah ibn Zubair, was crucified on the road from Medina to Mecca by the tyrant king Hajjaj ibn Yusuf. Hajjaj was a Thaqafi and had killed many of the companions. After a while, Zubairs corpse was thrown into the graveyard of the Jews as an insult towards him. Feeling proud with his sin, Hajjaj called for Zubairs mother, Asma’, to come meet him. She refused multiple times, and his ego was hurt. So he went to her instead.
Hajjaj went to the mother of Zubair and boasted, “What do you think of what I’ve done to the enemy of Allah?”. She replied, “I think that you’ve destroyed his worldly life and destroyed your own afterlife.”. Then, she narrated something she heard from the Prophet (ﷺ), “The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that from Thaqif, there would be born a great liar and great murderer. The liar we have seen, and as far as the murderer is concerned, I do not find anyone else besides you.”. Hajjaj then got up and left with no reply .
A great liar would be born from Thaqif.
As mentioned in the previous prophecy, a great liar was prophesied to come from Thaqif (a tribe). The question is, who is this great liar? Asma’ knew who it was while she spoke to Hajjaj and it was al-Mukhtar al-Thaqafi.
Mukhtar deceived many people and gathered a following before telling them that Gabriel is bringing him revelation. Eventually, Mukhtar became bold enough to proclaim prophethood. Mukhtar brought a lot of trouble to the Muslims due to his cunning deceit. His deceit eventually brought the Kaysaniyya sect, and his lies still lives on today as the Shia fell for his tricks and see him as a good man despite his evil.
Interest will become so widespread that even the one who tries to avoid it will still feel its consequences.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “A time will come upon people in which they will consume usury.” It was said, “All of the people?”. The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “Whoever does not consume it will be affected by its dust.” .
“This clearly describes the state of the world economy today. As Muhammad predicted, in the modern world it is virtually impossible to avoid dealing with, or at the very least being impacted by, interest. Just think about how many people have interest-bearing bank accounts, buy things using credit cards, and are only able to afford to purchase a home through an interest-based mortgage.
Even if one somehow manages to avoid dealing in interest directly, almost every aspect of our lives is impacted by it. Virtually every country in the world, even those considered to be wealthy, is drowning in interest-based debt. The United States, for example, is currently wrestling with a debt of trillions of dollars. Central banks influence the purchasing power of our money, and the financial system even suffered a global collapse in 2008 because of the widespread practice of buying and selling interest-based financial debt. This was a disaster which has plunged the world into economic turmoil, the consequences of which will be felt for generations to come.” 
It would be quite odd to hear this at the time of the Prophet (ﷺ), especially considering the fact that Muslims cannot do interest at all in any form. This, along with how the Prophet (ﷺ) said the Muslims would control a lot of land makes interest being widespread unlikely.
One of the factors that allowed interest to flourish and spread this much was the removal of the Gold Standard. Governments can now print as much money as they like and utilize interest to profit off of loans.
Killing will increase.
Another one of the prophecies from Muhammad (ﷺ) is the increase of killing .
Once again, there seems to be a paradox because literacy was prophesied to increase (Check part one to see that prophecy), but now we also hear of the increase of killing. How could people become educated yet kill each other so much? Yet this has been our reality and continues to be so. The historian Niall Ferguson notes this paradox of our modern age:
“Why? What made the twentieth century, and particularly the fifty years from 1904 until 1953, so b****y? That this era was exceptionally violent may seem paradoxical. After all, the hundred years after 1900 were a time of unparalleled progress.” 
People will pray in the mosque without a single believer amongst them.
The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that, “An age will surely come when people gather and pray in the mosques, while there is not a single believer amongst them.” .
Look no further than the British-made Qadiani sect and the racist Nation of Islam sect, both believing in prophets after the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), which is clear disbelief by consensus of the Muslims. Both of these sects (among other disbelieving people) go to their “mosques” and attempt to pray in congregation with butchered Arabic, all while there not being a single believer amongst them, as they are all disbelievers.
Some Muslim tribes will unite with the idolators and become one of them.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "The Hour shall not be established until tribes of my Ummah unite with the idolaters, and until they worship idols.” .
There are many examples of Muslim tribes uniting with idolators and becoming one of them throughout history, and one of the specific tribes was mentioned beforehand. Click here to read about “Dhul-Khalasa Prophecy”.
The seemingly tragic Treaty of Hudaibiya would end up as a “clear victory” for the Muslims.
After the Muslims were tortured in Mecca for a decade, they were eventually forced to migrate out of the city. The main hub of the Muslims then became Medina. However, the pagans who stole from, tortured, and killed Muslims in Mecca were not happy yet, as they still attacked the Muslims even after their migration. The Muslims began to fight back and took back some of their stolen wealth, but they were still weak. Taking advantage of their weakness, the pagans forced the Muslims into a treaty which saddened them, as it ordered the Muslims to send any Muslim fleeing Mecca back into pagan hands.
During the aftermath of what seemed to be a major setback for the Muslims, Surah al-Fath was revealed.
“Indeed, We have given you a clear victory, that Allah may forgive you your sins of the past and the future” [Qur’an 48:1-2] 
Although it may have seemed paradoxical how such a treaty would end up as a victory, the future events highlight it clearly.
The Muslims who were being tortured by the pagans in Mecca and forced to stay, one of them being Abu Jandal, banded together and fought back. Panicking, the pagans asked the Prophet (ﷺ) to tell them to stop. In return, they would revoke the part of the treaty that disallowed the Muslims to flee from Mecca .
The Treaty of Hudaibiya went from a setback to a victory, as the treaty also had a peace period of 10 years in it. From this, the Muslims were finally allowed to move around Arabia without constant threat from the Pagans of Mecca. Great benefits came to the Muslims because of this. Ibn Kathir says in his tafsir for the beginning of Surah al-Fath:
“[The Treaty of Hudaibiya] resulted in great goodness, including people embracing Islam in large crowds and having the chance to meet each other openly. During that time, the believers preached to the idolaters and thus beneficial knowledge and faith spread all around.”
The first wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) to pass after him will be the most generous.
Some of the wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand.".
Aisha then says, “It was the hand of Zainab that was the longest amongst them, as she used to work with her hand and spend (that income) on charity.” and Zainab was the first wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) to pass after him .
The Qur’an will be preserved.
“It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder, and it is certainly We Who will preserve it.” [Qur’an 15:9]
In contrast to books like the Bible, which still has Christian scholars debating on the authenticity of certain verses, the Qur’an is preserved and has no debate amongst Muslims on any verse being a fabrication or not.
To show the contrast, let’s look at one of the multiple verses that are debated in the Bible. The story of the Adultress in the Bible (Pericope Adulterae). Chris Keith, professor of New Testament and Early Christianity says this about the story:
“Interestingly enough, the earliest manuscripts of the Gospel of John do not contain this beloved passage. Indeed, the first manuscript to contain the story is from around 400 C.E… The majority of scholars believe a later Christian scribe inserted the passage into John’s Gospel…” [Reference].
However, to the dismay of those who wish otherwise, the Qur’an is clearly preserved. Although the Qur’an was transmitted orally and not through manuscripts, we can still use manuscripts to prove the Qur’ans preservation.
“The Qur’an of Uthman” at the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul has more than 99% of the Qur’an in text and dates to around 100 AH.
“Codex Mashhad” has >90% of the Qur’anic text and is dated to originate within the first century Hijrah. There are many many more manuscripts that prove my point, some being dated to the lifetime of the Prophet (ﷺ), but you can see more here as I won’t list off dozens of manuscripts here.
This is one of the reasons why the Muslims are unanimous in agreement about the authenticity of every verse in the Qur’an, which many other groups cannot say about their own scripture. This is also proof that the Qur’an was prophesied to be preserved and that this prophecy was fulfilled.
Muslims will use intoxicants and justify it by calling them another name.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “People from my nation (i.e. the Muslims) will certainly consume khamr, calling it by another name.” .
Khamr is anything that intoxicates the user, but it usually refers to wine in Arabic. Due to this, people in the past justified drinking alcoholic drinks by saying “It’s not really khamr”, calling it another name and falling into the exact trick the Prophet (ﷺ) warned us of. Now, we have it even worse. People take drugs and then say “Only alcohol is prohibited, not drugs.” because, once again, khamr usually refers to wine. So this prophecy has come true in the past and still rings true today.
There will be people who abuse others with multi-flailed whips.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “There are two kinds of people among the denizens of h**l whom I have not seen yet…”, one being “people having whips like the tails of an ox, [unjustly] beating people.” .
Notice how the Prophet (ﷺ) had never seen this kind of person before, and now this is a common image in our minds. Two of the most prominent examples of this type of person are the abusive police force in the past and the American slave owners, both beating those they had authority over with whips like the tails of ox, i.e. multi-flailed whips.
Al-Nawawi said: “With regard to those who would have whips, they are those who work for the police.” .
Al-Sakhaawi said: “They are now the helpers of the oppressors, and usually it refers to the worst group around the ruler.” .
The wind that brought news.
Jabir reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) came back from a journey, and as he was near Medina, there was such a violent gale that the mountain seemed to be pressed. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “This wind has brought news of the death of a hypocrite.”. As they reached Medina, they were told a notorious hypocrite from amongst the hypocrites had died .
The notorious hypocrite was Rifa’ah bin Zayd, an influential Jew who pretended to be Muslim to try and destroy Islam from within.
The next four prophecies are all in one hadith:
In an authentic hadith, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful.” .
From this, we see that,
1. Muslims will say fornication is permissible,
2. Muslims will say men wearing silk is permissible,
3. Muslims will say Khamr (intoxicants) are permissible, and finally
4. Muslims will say musical instruments are permissible.
Although I’m quite sure I can find historical examples of all of these, you will find that there are people today that attach themselves to Islam and do all of this. One of the biggest culprits are the hadith rejectors, which I spoke about in the first part. These people who only refer to the Qur’an and reject hadith claim that the matters in prophecies 22, 23, and 24 (2, 3, 4) are not prohibited in the Qur’an so they’re permissible.
However, you will even see this happen outside of those that reject Hadiths. For example, some use intoxicants and refer to them by another name to justify it (3, See prophecy #18). Some others reject this hadith and say that it is not authentic, and so they say music is permissible (4). This is despite the hadith having a separate authentic chain, as well as a past consensus on the impermissibility of most musical instruments. There are even some others who say a Muslim woman can marry a Christian man, even though that “marriage” is null and will be fornication in all cases (1)!
More examples are out there, but I will stop here.
The Muslims will conquer Egypt, along with some advice about it.
Abu Dharr reported the Prophet (ﷺ) as saying:
“You will soon conquer Egypt... So when you conquer it, treat its inhabitants well, for they have a right of kinship upon you. And when you see two persons falling into dispute amongst themselves for the space of a brick, then get out of that land.”. Abu Dharr said: I saw Abd al-Rahman bin Shurahbil and his brother Rabi'a disputing with one another for the space of a brick. So I left that land .
Constantinople will be conquered by the Muslims before Rome.
Someone asked the Prophet (ﷺ), “Which city will be conquered first, Constantinople or Rome?”, and the Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “The city of Heraclius will be liberated first.”, meaning Constantinople .
800 years later, Constantinople was conquered by the Muslims, and Rome is yet to be liberated.
The Muslims will fall into the same traps as the Jews and Christians.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch) so much so that even if they entered a hole of a lizard, you would follow them." The companions said, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! Do you mean the Jews and the Christians?" He said, "Who else?" .
So some Muslims will end up following the Jews and Christians in their deviances even in what is dangerous and clearly prohibited. This is an incredibly profound hadith that describes many of the deviances of the Muslims throughout history and you will see how true it is even today.
One prominent example that has happened in the past and is still somewhat prominent today is praying to Saints and Prophets. The Orthodox and Catholic Christians pray to their saints and even have certain saints for certain things they want. This is what the Shias do today, among other groups who have fallen into this trap.
However, an example that is especially telling is something that has, as far as I know, only happened recently. Some Christians and Jews in the West have distorted their book and said that homosexuality is not prohibited in their religion. The exact excuse they use when the story of Lutt (Job) is brought up is to say that “It’s not about homosexuality, it’s about r~pe!”. Amazingly, some Muslims are now saying that homosexuality is not prohibited in Islam. Their excuse? The exact same as the Christians and Jews: “The story of Lutt is about r~pe and not homosexuality.”.
Muslims will adorn their mosques and compete with them like the Jews and Christian.
Another one of the ways that the Muslims followed the Jews and Christians was the adornment of their places of worship.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The Last Hour will not come until people compete with one another about mosques.” , and Ibn Abbas said about this prophecy, “You will adorn your mosques like the Jews and Christians did.”.
Authority will be given to those who do not deserve it.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “When trust is lost, then wait for the Hour.” Abu Huraira said, “How is the trust lost, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet said, “When authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the Hour.”.
People will start decorating their houses like clothes.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "The Final Hour will not come until people build houses which are designed like colored garments." , i.e. dyed and painted with designs and colors.
To understand this fully, compare what the Prophets (ﷺ) house looked like to what we have now. People’s homes in the past were simple and almost colorless, as dye and paint were expensive and hard to come by. Now, both of those are easily accessible and commercially available for a relatively cheap price. That is why this description was not accurate in the past, but it is today.
Security will come to the previously dangerous Arab lands.
Narrated `Adi bin Hatim:
While I was in the city of the Prophet (ﷺ), a man came and complained to him of destitution and poverty. Then another man came and complained of robbery by highwaymen. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Adi! Have you been to Al-Hira?" I said, "I haven't been to it, but I was informed about it." He said, "If you live long [enough], you will see a woman travel on camelback from al-Hira till she circles the Ka‘ba while not fearing anyone but Allah." I said to myself, "What will happen to the robbers of the tribe of Tai who have spread evil throughout the country?" The Prophet (ﷺ) further said. "If you should live long, the treasures of Khosrau will be and taken as spoils." I asked, "You mean Khosrau, son of Hurmuz?" He said, "Khosrau, son of Hurmuz.”.
‘Adi then speaks about what happened later in his life: “I have in fact seen a woman travel on camelback from al-Hira till she circled the Ka‘ba while not fearing anyone but Allah, and I was among those who conquered the treasures of Chosroes, the son of Hurmuz.” .
Obesity/fatness will spread amongst Muslims.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The best of my nation is the generation among whom I was sent, then those who follow them, then there shall appear people who testify while their testimony was not sought, who are treacherous, not trusted, and fatness shall spread among them." .
The Muslim Gulf countries today are some of the most obese in the world. According to World Population Review, the UAE has a ~32% obesity rate and Kuwait has a -37% obesity rate.
Also, Kuwait is the fourth most obese country with an average BMI of 30, and Kuwait’s rate of obesity is even higher than the US rate of obesity.
Islam will become a global religion.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “This matter will certainly reach every place touched by the night and day. Allah will not leave a house of mud or [even] fur except that Allah will cause this religion to enter it, by which the honorable will be honored and the disgraceful will be disgraced. Allah will honor the honorable with Islam and he will disgrace the disgraceful with unbelief” .
One-fourth of the Earth’s population is now Muslim, and Islam is predicted to continue to rise despite people’s attempts otherwise. Not only is Islam the fastest-growing religion on Earth right now, but other religions are failing. According to Pew Research, Christianity is predicted to lose 66 million followers in 30 years purely from religious switching, while Muslims are expected to gain more than 3 million followers due to conversion alone.
People still stop greeting each other in the street, saving their greetings only for those they know.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Verily, before the Final Hour, people will only greet those that they know.” .
For those that have been born into this modern world, this may seem normal, but it is not. If you go to areas that have older folk, you will likely notice that even strangers smile at you and say greet you. In contrast, younger people walk by you without a glance. This prophecy exactly describes the social situation we are in today, and you can still see how things used to be.
Trade will increase until the woman helps her husband in it.
The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that one of the signs of the Hour is, “Business will become so widespread and extensive that even the wife will begin to assist her husband in it [i.e. in amassing wealth].” .
The issue between Ali and Aisha, and advice to Ali.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said to ‘Ali, “There will be an issue between you and Aisha.” He said, “Me, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “Yes.” He said, “Me?!” He said, “Yes.” He said, “Then I would be the worst of them (i.e. the worst of people).” He said, “No, but when this occurs, return her to her safe quarters.” .
It then came to pass that an issue broke out between the armies of Ali and Aisha in the Battle of the Camel, although both of them were trying to reach a peaceful conclusion. Ali was shocked that such a thing would happen, but of course as the Prophet (ﷺ) said, it happened anyways.
People will sever links with their relatives.
The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that one of the signs of the Hour is that, “Familial links will be cut.” .
Those who are aware of what’s happening in the West know how much things have changed in regards to familial ties. The emphasis on close familial ties is now disappearing, and an individualist philosophy has overtaken the West. The family unit has been attacked, and it’s normal to cut ties with one’s family completely now. In fact, the go-to solution that I have seen from most Westerners when it comes to a troublesome family is to either cut ties with them completely, or throw them in a care home and then cut ties with them completely.
False testimony will appear and true testimony will be concealed.
Another sign of the Hour the Prophet (ﷺ) told us about is that, “False testimony will appear and true testimony will be concealed.” .
The Muslims will be ruled by 12 Caliphs from Quraish, and things will decline from then.
Jabir bin Samura said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Islam will continue to be triumphant until there have been twelve Caliphs.” and that all of these Caliphs will be from the tribe of Quraish .
This means that there would be twelve rulers from Quraish amongst the Muslims, and once they pass, the state of the Muslims will decline. This does not mean that all of these twelve rulers will be just, however, but that the Muslims will be united and strong under them.
Ibn Taymiyyah said,
“This is how they were: the caliphs were Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthmaan and ‘Ali. Then there came to power whoever the people rallied behind and were able to hold the reins of power: Mu‘aawiyah and his son Yazeed, then ‘Abd al-Malik and his four sons; and then ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez (making twelve in total).
After that, the Islamic state was beset by the decline that has continued until the present. The Umayyads ruled all the Muslim lands, and during their era the Islamic state was powerful…
One of them would be the one who led the people in offering the five daily prayers, handed out banners in the mosque (to the armies setting out on expeditions), and appoint commanders, but he would live in his own house; they did not live in palaces or remain aloof from the common people.” .
The disbelievers would not attack Muslims after the Battle of the Trench.
Narrated Sulaiman bin Surd:
When the clans were driven away [after the Battle of the Trench], I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, "From now onwards we will go to attack them (i.e. the Pagans and Jews who fought the Muslims at the time) and they will not come to attack us, but we will go to them." .
The Prophet (ﷺ) knew what would come to pass, as the Battle of the Trench was one of the pivotal moments of Islamic history. After it, the Muslims stopped being the ones in a weaker position of power and the Muslims would initiate the battles, one of them being the Conquest of Mecca (although it was barely a battle since there was little fighting). It ended with the Muslims enacting a rule of justice on those around them, as the Muslims were given authority over the rest.
The Muslims will fight with one another after their first conquests.
Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
“How would you be, O people, when Persia and the Byzantines would be conquered for you?” `Abd ar-Rahman ibn Auf said, “We would say as Allah has commanded us and we would express our gratitude to Allah.”. The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “Nothing else besides it? You would (in fact) compete with one another, then you would feel jealous, then your relations would be estranged and then you will bear enmity against one another. Then you would go to the poor emigrants and would make some the masters of the others.” .
Hatibs’ letter to the polytheists.
Ali, Zubair, and Abu Marthad were once called by the Prophet (ﷺ) and told, “Go to Raudat Hajj, there will be a woman carrying a letter from Hatib to the Pagans, bring that letter to me.”. The three went off on their horses and found a woman in that same place on a camel, so they stopped her. “Where is the letter?” Ali asked, and the woman replied, “I don’t have any letter.”. Her luggage was searched and nothing was found, so the others said to Ali, “We think she doesn’t have a letter.” to which Ali replied, “We know the Prophet (ﷺ) has not lied to us.”
Eventually, the woman broke and gave them the letter, which they brought back to the Prophet (ﷺ) .
The Jews would be expelled from Khaibar.
Although some Jews during the time of the Prophet (ﷺ) fulfilled their trusts and contracts, some others did not. They were ungrateful to the Muslims despite them giving the Jews their due rights and protecting the Jews from harm. Not only did they conspire to unite with the Pagans and attack the Muslims, but they even tried to assassinate the Prophet (ﷺ).
The Jews of Khaibar were one of those who betrayed the Muslims, but they were given some leeway and were allowed to stay in Khaibar under some conditions. However, the Prophet (ﷺ) told them, “What will your condition be when you are expelled from Khaibar and your camel will be carrying you night after night?” prophesying the Jews expulsion from Khaibar.
After the Prophet (ﷺ) passed away and Umar was the Caliph, the Jews of Khaibar betrayed the Muslims again, so Umar expelled them from Khaibar, fulfilling the prophecy .
Muslims will stop caring about whether their money is haram or not.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “A time will come when people will not care where they earned their money from; whether by lawful means or unlawful means.”  meaning they will not care if their wealth is haram or not, despite the harsh warnings against it.
The news of a far army.
The Prophet (ﷺ) had informed the people about the death of Zaid, Ja`far and Ibn Rawaha before the news of their death reached them.
He said with his eyes flowing with tears, "Zaid took the flag and was martyred; then Ja`far took the flag and was martyred, and then Ibn Rawaha took the flag and was martyred. Finally, the flag was taken by one of Allah's Swords (i.e. Khalid bin Al-Walid) and Allah gave them (i.e. the Muslims) victory." .
People will pass through mosques without praying.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Some of the signs of the Hour is that a man will pass through a mosque without praying two rak’ahs and that he will only greet those he knows.” .
This ties into a past prophecy I’ve covered that stated that people will compete with the building of their mosques just like the People of the Book did. Nowadays, some mosques are seen as tourist destinations and areas to observe and take pictures of. That is partially because of the extravagance in design for the sake of competition, but a lack of knowledge and piety also plays a part.
People will recite Qur’an for the sake of reputation and fame.
Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) came to us while we were reciting the Qur'an, and there were among us bedouins and the non-Arabs. He said, “Recite, all is well. In the near future, there will appear people who will straighten it (the Qur’an) as an arrow is straightened. They will get their reward for it in this world and will not get it in the Hereafter.” .
Muslims will innovate things in the religion despite the clear warnings against it.
There are clear warnings in Islam from innovating new things in the religion. For example, new holidays, ways of worship, political structures, etc.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The most evil matters are those that are newly invented, for every newly-invented matter is an innovation. Every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is in the Hellfire.” .
However, the Prophet (ﷺ) still said that the Muslims will innovate new things in the religion. In one narration the Prophet (ﷺ) says, “Some of my companions will come to me at my Lake Fount (on the Day of Judgement), and after I recognize them, they will then be taken away from me. I will say, ‘My companions!' Then it will be said, 'You do not know what they innovated (new things) in the religion after you." .
In another narration the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Those who came before you of the people of the Book split into 72 sects, and this ummah will split into 73: 72 in h**l and one in Paradise…” .
Those who are knowledgeable on what the earliest generations of Muslims did will recognize that there is a lot of religious innovation in our world today.
The Muslim conquest of India.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “There are two groups of my ummah whom Allah will protect from the Fire: the group that invades India, and the group that will be with Jesus the son of Mary.” .
The Ummayads conquered India up to Sindh at around 94 AH, and the Muslims took the entirety of India some hundred years later. India stayed as a Muslim state for hundreds of years until the British occupation.
Muslims will make homosexual intercourse permissible.
The Prophet ﷺ said, “Once my nation considers five things permissible… [one being when] men suffice themselves with men and women suffice themselves with women.” .
As mentioned previously in prophecy #27, this is now a reality. Muslims have fallen into the same trap that Western Jews and Christians fell into and are following them even in making homosexual intercourse permissible. Even just 15 years ago, this would have sounded like an impossibility, and yet this is the world we live in today, predicted 1400+ years ago.
Islam will prevail and become clear over all other religions. This list has proven that.
“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers hate it.
It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah hate it.” [Qur’an 9:32-33]
Islam has been prophesied to become manifest over all other religions. With most of the other prophecies needed me to have an explanation of their fulfillment, this prophecy does not need one. This entire list itself is proof of the fulfillment of this prophecy.
What other religion has this much clear evidence for it? None. Nothing else can offer such clear verifiable proof. There have been over 100 fulfilled authentic Islamic prophecies, and there are only about four prophecies left that will likely happen before the Major Signs come (Dajjal [the Antichrist], the Mahdi, the Beast, etc.).
Every other religion has flaws in whatever proofs they attempt to bring. They will always have either disprovable claims, like false prophecies, or they will be struck down by what Islam offers. Any evidence that a non-Muslim attempts to bring for their religion is in Islam but better and more numerous.
