In reference to the following news it is worth noting what was prophesied almost 1400 years ago.
If your socks told your feet how to run faster, would you wear them? If a camera embedded in your scarf filmed your daily interactions, would you wear it? Do you use even half the functions your smartwatch offers?
“Wild animals and inanimate objects will speak – The end of a whip will speak A shoelace will speak – A man’s thigh will give news of his family
The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) related to us that among the signs of the Hour is that wild animals will speak, the end of a whip will speak, a shoelace will speak, and a man’s thigh will speak!
Abu Sa‘eed Al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, the Hour will not begin until wild animals speak to men, until the end of a man’s whip and his shoelace speak to him, and his thigh tells him news of his family after he left.”
“Until wild animals speak,” refers to animals such as lions,”
“Some researchers have stated that what is meant by the end of the whip, the shoelace, and the thigh speaking are modern means of communication that have been invented in our own era, such as mobile phones and means of listening which can transmit the smallest and faintest sounds.
It has also been suggested that this should be understood according to the apparent meaning, which is that whips, shoelaces, and thighs will speak real words. Allah knows best.”
It is interesting to note the following news and the technological advancements happening which seems like the fulfilment of said prophecy.
