Hadith on Trials: Reason will disappear before the Hour

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, before the Hour will be an upheaval.” I said, “O Messenger of Allah, what is the upheaval?” The Prophet said, “Killing.” Some of the Muslims said, “O Messenger of Allah, right now we fight many idolaters every year.” The Prophet said, “It is not that you will fight the idolaters, but rather you will fight each other, until a man kills his neighbor, the son of his aunt, and his close relatives.” Some people said, “O Messenger of Allah, will we be reasonable on that day?” The Prophet said, “No, reason will be taken away from most people in that era, and insignificant people will remain who do not use their reason.”

عن أبي موسى قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ السَّاعَةِ لَهَرْجًا قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا الْهَرْجُ قَالَ الْقَتْلُ فَقَالَ بَعْضُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّا نَقْتُلُ الْآنَ فِي الْعَامِ الْوَاحِدِ مِنْ الْمُشْرِكِينَ كَذَا وَكَذَا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيْسَ بِقَتْلِ الْمُشْرِكِينَ وَلَكِنْ يَقْتُلُ بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضًا حَتَّى يَقْتُلَ الرَّجُلُ جَارَهُ وَابْنَ عَمِّهِ وَذَا قَرَابَتِهِ فَقَالَ بَعْضُ الْقَوْمِ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَعَنَا عُقُولُنَا ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمَ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا تُنْزَعُ عُقُولُ أَكْثَرِ ذَلِكَ الزَّمَانِ وَيَخْلُفُ لَهُ هَبَاءٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ لَا عُقُولَ لَهُمْ
