Hadith on the Beast: People will wear the Mark of the Beast

Abu Umamah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The Beast will emerge and place a mark on the faces of the people. They will be plentiful among you such that a man will purchase a camel and it will be said: From whom did you buy it? He will say: I bought it from one of those with the mark.”

Ibn Kathir said, “This is the beast which will emerge at the end of time when people have become corrupt, abandoned the commands of Allah, and changed the true religion. Thus, Allah will bring forth the beast from the earth for them.”

عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ يَرْفَعُهُ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ تَخْرُجُ الدَّابَّةُ فَتَسِمُ النَّاسَ عَلَى خَرَاطِيمِهِمْ ثُمَّ يَغْمُرُونَ فِيكُمْ حَتَّى يَشْتَرِيَ الرَّجُلُ الْبَعِيرَ فَيَقُولُ مِمَّنْ اشْتَرَيْتَهُ فَيَقُولُ اشْتَرَيْتُهُ مِنْ أَحَدِ الْمُخَطَّمِينَ

قال ابن كثير هَذِهِ الدَّابَّةُ تَخْرُجُ فِي آخِرِ الزَّمَانِ عِنْدَ فَسَادِ النَّاسِ وَتَرْكِهِمْ أَوَامِرَ اللَّهِ وَتَبْدِيلِهِمُ الدِّينَ الْحَقَّ يُخْرِجُ اللَّهُ لَهُمْ دَابَّةً مِنَ الْأَرْضِ
