The End Times (or the Last Days) may not be a familiar concept to many people. Therefore, we first give a brief explanation of it. The End Times means "the last era." According to Islamic literature, this period of time is close to Doomsday, during which we will witness the prevalence of the Qur'an's morality and widespread adherence to religious values.
Towards the end of this period, all conditions that ensure a peaceful and safe life will be established, and the misery that marked the previous periods will be replaced will wealth, abundance, and justice. All forms of immorality, fraud, and degeneration will end. This is the blessed period, marked by Islamic morality, for which all people of faith have longed for centuries.
The Hadith literature and the works of Muslim scholars contain extensive references to this period. These descriptions indicate that, following great corruption and outrage, Earth will enter upon a period of salvation characterized by bounty and blessings due to the prevalence of true religion. In this period, science, medicine, and technology will advance to a unprecedented degree and provide extensive benefits humanity, and the understanding of art will flourish in an unprecedented way.
During the early phases of the End Times, moral degeneration will become all-pervasive due to the influence of some philosophical systems such as atheism, materialism and racism. Humanity will forget the reason for its existence and thus enter the downward spiral of spiritual purposelessness and moral degeneration. Great disasters will occur one after another. Wars and insurmountable trouble will cause humanity to seek the answer to the question: "Is there a way out?" But Allah will save people from this great turmoil and enable them to enter a blessed period. Actually, such a blessed period applies to each community at all times, provided its members abide by the Qur'an's morality. Allah has always granted great blessings to His servants who, out of their awe and consciousness of Him, comply meticulously with His commands. He causes such people to live in abundance.
What we know about the End Times comes from our Prophet's (saas) words and the works of Muslim scholars. There is no reason to doubt the authenticity of these resources, for the Hadith literature provides detailed descriptions about this period. The facts that such detailed accounts were provided 14 centuries ago and that all these happenings occurred one after another within a particular period of time is a miracle in itself, and thereby removes any misgivings regarding the origin of these words.
Indeed, since Allah gives us some information related to the End Times, such as the global prevalence of the Qur'an's morality or Jesus' second coming to Earth, we have no reason to doubt its accuracy. In the following verse, Allah gives the good news that the Qur'an's morality will pervade Earth:

Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land, as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion, with which He is pleased, and give them, in place of their fear, security. "They worship Me, not associating anything with Me." Any who are unbelievers after that, such people are deviators.. (Surat an-Nur: 55)
