In our day, there is a great danger that threatens the world’s social fabric. In the same way as a virus kills the human body, this danger brings about subtle social collapse. This danger is the degradation of those moral values that help to maintain a healthy society. Homosexuality, prostitution, pre-marital and extra-marital sex, sexual misdemeanors, pornography, sexual harassment and the increase of sex-related illnesses, are a number of important indications of the collapse of moral values.

These remain continual matters of public concern. A great number of people are not aware of the danger that is increasing around them, and mistakenly consider it as normal. But, statistics show that, with every passing day, the extent of the danger is growing unperceived.

For societies without religious and moral values AIDS has become a growing and epidemic problem.

The proportion of sex-related illnesses is an important criterion to help indicate the extent of the problems facing humanity. According to the records of the World Health Organization (WHO), sex-related diseases forms one of the largest segments of illnesses. These reports show that of an estimated 333 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases occur in the world every year.18 In addition, AIDS continues to be the most serious problem. Statistics of WHO indicate that the total number of AIDS deaths since the beginning of the epidemic have been 18.8 million persons.19 The report of the World Health Organization for the year 2000 sums up the situation succinctly: “AIDS is unique in its devastating impact on the social, economic and demographic underpinnings of development.20

The growing prevalence of homosexuality over the past few years is a frightening development. This phenomenon was mentioned in the hadiths of our Prophet (saas) fourteen centuries ago.

Among the most frightening developments is the spread of homosexuality. In some countries, homosexuals can be legally married, enjoy the social benefits of marriage, and form associations and organizations. Around the world their activities show their opposition to religious faith and their antagonism to religious values. This is a characteristic of our age; such things have never happened before since the time of the Prophet (saas).

The audacity of today’s homosexuals makes one think of the end of the people of Lut who were noted for their homosexuality. As it says in the Qur’an, when they flamboyantly rejected Lut (as)’s invitation to the right path, Allah destroyed the city and its people by a great disaster. As a reminder, the remains of this perverse society still lie beneath the water of Lut’s Lake (the Dead Sea).

It is clear that the hadiths describing the End Times and its moral degeneration are coming true today.

Every day newspaper pages contain reports that point to the collapse of social morality, while many regard these developments as merely normal.

One hadith indicates that the absence of the shame of prostitution is a sign of the Last Day.

There will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse.


The Prophet (saas) says that the spread of extra-marital sexual relationships in society is a sign:

The Hour will come when adultery becomes widespread.

(Al-Haythami, Kitab al-Fitan)

The weakening of moral values and a sense of shame is described in these words:

The Last Hour will not be established until they (wicked people) commit adultery on theroads (public ways).

(Ibn Hibban and Bazzar)

It is interesting to note that, recently, scenes of prostitution captured by hidden cameras have been broadcast on television channels. Prostitutes have sexual intercourse with their customers in open view in the middle of the street. This is another sign of the Last Day revealed in a hadith; millions of people have witnessed this sign. These hadiths show that tolerating homosexuality as a normal way of life is an important sign of the period before the Last Day.

Men will imitate women; and Women will imitate men.
(Allama Jalaluddin Suyuti, Durre-Mansoor)
People will indulge in homosexuality and lesbianism

(Al-Muttaqi Al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanzul Ummaal)
