Extracts from Al Ibriz

The awliyah know the date of the day of judgement

Recently, i started reading the book, al ibriz. Written by shaykh ibn al mubarak al lamati. Essentially the book is a collection of notes he made whilst being with his shaykh. Whom was Shaykh Abdul Azeez Ad Dabbagh. The book is a collection of 4 months teachings of the great saint of Allah. Where he (shaykh ibn al mubarak) asked different questions to his shaykh. The contents of the book are the answers to the questions, which became “pure gold from the sayings of syyiduna Abdul Azeez Dabbagh”.
InshaAllah, i will make notes as I go along reading the book. Especially noting down any secrets and special wisdom which the great saint, ghous of his time syyidina Abdul azeez dabbagh mentions….

1) The awliyah know the actual date when the day of judgement will occur. Shaykh Ibn al Mubarak al latimi asked this to his shaykh: – (shaykh Abdul azeez ad dabbagh)

And shaykh Abdul azeez dabbagh replied:

2) Following from this, in the chapter of “the descriptions of barzakh” in al ibriz. we also learn how the state of the infidels will be:

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.

Assalamu Alaikum,

Thank you. But how would one reconcile this with the hadith of Jibreel(AS) where the blessed Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied with “The one asked about it knows no more than the one asking” when asked about the Hour.



Salasm, isn’t that contradicting with the Quran ?

{They say: “When will this promise (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) come to pass? if you are telling the truth.” – Say (O Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam): “The knowledge (of its exact time) is with Allah only, and I am only a plain warner.” } [al-Mulk 69 v 25-26]


{ They ask you about the Hour (Day of Resurrection): “When will be its appointed time?” Say: “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (Alone). None can reveal its time but He. Heavy is its burden through the heavens and the earth. It shall not come upon you except all of a sudden.” They ask you as if you have a good knowledge of it. Say: “The knowledge thereof is with Allýh (Alone), but most of mankind know not.”} [al-A’raaf 7:187]


In the hadith and the quranic verses you and others quoted above. In no narration does the prophet (saw) reply “i do not know the answer to the question”. or i cant answer that or anything similar.
Secondly, In reference to the hadith gibril someone made. The prophet (saw) replied “the one being questioned does not know more than the questioner”. Usually when a questioner asks a question he already know the answer. so, the prophet (saw) was not saying he does not know the answer. But, was rather saying i dont know any more than you do already about the day of judgement. This does not in no way mean that he did not know or have the knowledge of the day of judgement.
In reference to the quranic verses, it is the same situation. in fact, it is mentioned more explicitly in the quranic verses: “…but most of mankind know not.”} [al-A’raaf 7:187]
By no means here that it says noone knows when the final hour will come. it rather says “most of mankind know not”. that is some of his closest people know it only.
