Hadith on Islam: Disappearance of religious knowledge at end of time

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Islam will be taken apart just as a garment is taken apart, until fasting is not known, nor prayer, nor rites, nor charity. The book of Allah Almighty will vanish in a single night, such that no verse of it is left on earth. There will only remain some sects among people, old men and women who say, ‘We know our forefathers said there is no god but Allah, so we say it as well.’

عَنْ حُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الْيَمَانِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَدْرُسُ الْإِسْلَامُ كَمَا يَدْرُسُ وَشْيُ الثَّوْبِ حَتَّى لَا يُدْرَى مَا صِيَامٌ وَلَا صَلَاةٌ وَلَا نُسُكٌ وَلَا صَدَقَةٌ وَلَيُسْرَى عَلَى كِتَابِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فِي لَيْلَةٍ فَلَا يَبْقَى فِي الْأَرْضِ مِنْهُ آيَةٌ وَتَبْقَى طَوَائِفُ مِنْ النَّاسِ الشَّيْخُ الْكَبِيرُ وَالْعَجُوزُ يَقُولُونَ أَدْرَكْنَا آبَاءَنَا عَلَى هَذِهِ الْكَلِمَةِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ فَنَحْنُ نَقُولُهَا
