“Abdullah ibn Mas’ud [r.a.] said that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “When there is a Sayha (scream) in Ramadan, then there will be turmoil in Shawwal, and the tribes will form groups in Zul-Qi’da, and blood will be spilled in Zul-Hijja, and in Al-Muharram! What is prohibited?” saying it three times, “Oh, Oh! The people will be killed in a great massacres.” He said: “We said: “What is the Sayha (scream), O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “This will be in the middle of Ramadan, on a Friday morning. That will be when the month of Ramadan begins on a Friday night. There will be a Hadda (powerful, hammering sound) that will awaken one who is asleep, and bring the young women out of their rooms, on a Friday night during a year of many earthquakes (and very cold). So when Ramadan begins on a Friday night in that year, then when you have prayed Fajr on Friday in the middle of Ramadan, then enter your houses, close your doors, block your windows, cover yourselves, and block your ears. When you sense the scream, fall down in prostration to Allah and say: “Subhanal-Quddus, subhanal-Quddus, rabbunal-Quddus (Glory be to the Most Holy, glory be to the Most Holy, our Lord is the Most Holy).” For whoever does that will survive, and whoever does not will perish.” (Nuaim bin Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan, Hadith ).

ذَا كَانَتْ صَيْحَةٌ فِي رَمَضَانَ؛ فَإِنَّهُ يَكُونُ مَعْمَعَةٌ فِي شَوَّالٍ، وَتَمْيِيزُ الْقَبَائِلِ فِي ذِيِ الْقَعْدَةِ، وَتُسْفَكُ الدِّمَاءُ فِي ذِيِ الْحِجَّةِ. وَالْمُحَرَّمِ وَمَا الْمُحَرَّمُ؟ (يَقُولُهَا ثَلَاثاً) ، هَيْهَاتَ هَيْهَاتَ، يُقْتَلُ النَّاسُ فِيهَا هَرْجاً هَرْجاً. قُلْنَا: وَمَا الصَّيْحَةُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ؟ قَالَ: هَدَّةٌ فِي النِّصْفِ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ لَيْلَةَ جُمُعَةٍ؛ فَتَكُونُ هَدَّةٌ تُوقِظُ النَّائِمَ، وَتُقْعِدُ الْقَائِمَ، وَتُخْرِجُ الْعَوَاتِقَ مِنْ خُدُورِهِنَّ فِي لَيْلَةِ جُمُعَةٍ، فِي سَنَةٍ كَثِيرَةِ الزَّلَازِلِ. فَإِذَا صَلَّيْتُمُ الْفَجْرَ مِنْ يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ؛ فَادْخُلُوا بُيُوتَكُمْ، وَاغْلِقُوا أَبْوَابَكُمْ، وَسُدُّوا كُوَاكُمْ، وَدِثِّرُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ، وَسُدُّوا آذَانَكُمْ، فَإِذَا أحسَسْتُمْ بِالصَّيْحَةِ فَخِرُّوا لِلَّهِ سُجَّداً، وَقُولُوا: سُبْحَانَ الْقُدُّوسِ،سُبْحَانَ الْقُدُّوسِ، رَبُّنَا الْقُدُّوسُ؛ فَإِنَّه مَنْ فَعَلَ ذَلِكَ؛ نَجَا، وَمَنْ لَمْ يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ؛ هَلَكَ)


Imaam Al-Albaaniy classed this hadeeth as mawdu’ (Fabricated) in Silsilatul Ahadeeth Ad-Da’eefa wal Mawdu’ah, he further explained:

وهذا متن موضوع، وإسناده واهٍ مسلسل بالعلل:
الاولى / المؤلف نفسه؛ نعيم بن حماد، فإنه مع كونه من أئمة السنة والمدافعين عنها، فليس بحجة فيما يرويه، فقال النسائي:
“ليس بثقة “.
واتهمه بعضهم بالوضع. والحافظ الذهبي مع صراحته المعهودة، لم يستطع أن يقول فيه – بعد أن ذكر الخلاف حوله – إلا: “قلت: ما أظنه يضع “!

This text (of the hadeeth) is fabricated, and its chain is weak with series of defects:

Firstly: The author himself, Nu’aim bin Hamaad, despite of being from among the Imaam of the ahlus sunnah and its defenders, his narrations can’t be taken as a proof, An-Nasaa’iy said regarding him “he is not trustworthy (in narrating ahadeeth)”. And others were accusing him of fabrication, and Al-Haafidh Ad-Dhahabiy with his known frankness wasn’t able to say anything, after mentioned the differences of opinion regarding Nu’aim, except “I don’t think he fabricates” (meaning he is less than a fabricator).

لثانية: شيخه أبو عمر – وهو: الصفار: كما وقع له في غير هذا الحديث -، واسمه: حماد بن واقد، وهو ضعيف، بل قال البخاري: “منكر الحديث ”
Secondly, his Sheikh Abu ‘Umar, As-Safaar, like what had occurred not only in this hadeeth, his name is Hamaad bin Waaqid, and he is weak, infact Al-Bukhaariy said regarding him: (he narrates) detestable hadeeth.

لثالثة: ابن لهيعة، وهومعروف بالضعف بعد احتراق كتبه.
Thirdly: Ibn Luhay’ah, he is known for being weak after his books got burned….

And Sheikh Al-Albaaniy rahimahullaah goes on with three more reasons as to why this hadeeth is fabricated.

In addition, Imaam Adh-Dhahabiy said:

وقد صنف كتاب ” الفتن ” فأتى فيه بعجائب ومناكير. – سير أعلام النبلاء – (10 / 609) مؤسسة الرسالة
“He authored a book named “al-fitan” and in it he has mentioned a lot of strange and detestable narrations”. (As-Siyar 10/609)

Wallaahu a’lam bissawaab.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
