Assalamu alaikum. Could you kindly explain
the Hadith below especially the answer to
the last question. Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said "In near
future such a time will come upon man when
it will be difficult to save his religion. To
save religion he will flee like a Jackal from
cave to cave and from one hillock to other.
They asked: When will it occur? He said:
When you will not be able to earn livelihood
without sin. When that time come, one will
be ruined at the hands of his parents, if has
no parents, at hands of his wife & children &
in their absence at hands of his relatives.
They asked: How will that come to pass? He
said: They will abuse him for his insolvent
condition. His parents will ask what is
beyond the capacity of their son; as a result
he will come to the position of ruin.” Was

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

There is no need to explain the Prophetic
narration to which the questioner referred in
the question, as it is a weak narration and
can not be attributed to the Prophet .
The chain of narrators include Jaami' Ibn
Sawdah, who is unknown, and Mubaarak Ibn
Fudhaalah , who gives false impressions
concerning the narration without mentioning
that he heard it from another narrator (i.e.
reports the narration as if he heard it from
the person after him in the chain), as
clarified by Abu Daawood . Indeed, this
narration is classified as weak by Al-Albaani
There is no doubt that we are in an era
where afflictions are widespread, and it is
very difficult to hold fast to one's religion, as
the Prophet said to the companions,
may Allah be pleased with them: " Indeed,
there will come after you days of endurance
and patience, in which the one who remains
patient is like the one who grabs a
firebrand. " [At-Tirmithi].

Allah knows best.
