All our information is taken from authentic sources. The authentic narrations are truthful; however, the understanding the scholars have of those texts can differ.

Some aspects of these trials and signs are explicit and others aspe...
Minor Signs which Have Passed
1) The Splitting of the Moon
Anas b. Malik (radyAllahu'anhu) narrated that the people of Makkah
asked the Prophet ﷺ to show them a sign, so he split the moon for them.[Muslim]
'Awf b. Malik (radyAllahu'anhu) narrated that he came to the Prophet ﷺ in his tent during the Battle of Tabuk, and he said,"Count six before the Hour... two plagues which will strike you like the disease of cattle..." [Bukhari]

when the vessel decomposes, and time buries it underneath the intertwined layers of earth, and the graceful veins of ore embalms it, petrifies it, and the only thing left of us are just memories floating in the ether of the living, and our anima ascends past the blackness of the universe, what remains, and what we carry from this world to the next are just names.

Abu Huraira (RA) reported Allah's Messenger ﷺ said that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: I have prepared for My pious servants which the eye has seen not, and the ear has heard not and no human heart has ever perceived such bounties leaving aside those about which Allah has informed you.

Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power."
When the ground beneath me
Starts to give way
When all that is built on hope

Holding your hand
I center myself
You are my peace
In a world of noise

Abu Hurairah (RA) said: "I heard the Messenger of Allah ﷺ say 'Whoever spends on a pair of things in the cause of Allah, he will be called from the gates of Paradise: O slave of Allah, this is good for you. Paradise had (several) gates. Whoever is one of the people of Salah, he will be called from the gate of prayer. Whoever is one of the people of Jihad, will be called from the gate of Jihad. Whoever is one of the people of charity will be called from the gate of charity. And whoever is one of the people of fasting will be called from the gate of Ar-Rayyan." Abu Bakr said: "Is there any need for anyone to be called from all of these gates? Will anyone be called from all of them, O Messenger ...
