Prophet predicted day of resurrection
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved brother in Islam, no matter which book says what, the Truth in Islam is always based on what is declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws); for there is no bigger Truth than that.
Allah Subhanah Himself, time and time again in His Glorious Quran has declared that no one, absolutely no one other than the Lord Himself Knows when the Inevitable Day of Resurrection will occur. No human being, no Prophets of Allah, not even the Angels closest to Him, and not even the Arch-Angel Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) knows the time of the Day of Resurrection. The Knowledge of the exact time of the Day of Resurrection is with none except the Lord of the Worlds, Allah Subhanah Alone; and He has not shared this information with anyone in His entire creation.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 187: They ask thee about the (final) Hour when will be its appointed time? Say: "The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone): none but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only all of a sudden will it come to you. They ask thee as if thou wert eager in search thereof: Say: "The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone) but most men know not."
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 63: Men ask thee concerning the Hour: say "The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone)": and what will make thee understand? Perchance the Hour is nigh!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.300 Narrated by Abu Huraira
One day while Allah's Messenger (saws) was sitting with the people, a man came to him walking and said, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), what is Belief?" The Prophet (saws) said, "Belief is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Prophets, and the meeting with Him, and to believe in the Resurrection." The man asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), what is Islam?" The Prophet (saws) replied, "Islam is to worship Allah and not worship anything besides Him, to offer prayers perfectly, to pay the (compulsory) charity, i.e. Zakat, and to fast the month of Ramadan." The man again asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), what is Ihsan (i.e. perfection or benevolence)?" The Prophet (saws) said, "Ihsan is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you do not achieve this state of devotion, then (take it for granted that) Allah sees you." The man further asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws) When will the Hour be established?"
The Prophet (saws) replied, "The one who is asked about it does not know more than the questioner does, but I will describe to you its portents. When the lady slave gives birth to her mistress, that will be of its portents; when the bare-footed naked people become the chiefs of the people, that will be of its portents. The Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah. Verily, the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs." Then the man left. The Prophet (saws) said, "Call him back to me." They went to call him back but could not see him. The Prophet (saws) said, "That was Jibrael (a.s.) who came to teach the people their religion."
Thus my beloved and dear Brother, in light of the above Aayahs of the Quran and the authentic hadith of the Messenger of Allah (saws) it is absolutely confirmed that none knows the knowledge of the advent of the Day of Resurrection except Allah Subhanah Alone, and He shared this knowledge with none amongst His creation.
Therefore whoever said that Prophet Mohamed (saws) predicted the advent of the Day of Resurrection is nothing but a confirmed liar.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
