Barefoot, Naked Shepherds
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
In the famous hadits of Jibril (a.s.), recorded in Swahih Muslim, the Prophet (s.a.w.) was asked of the signs of the Hours. He replied, “That slave women give birth to their mistresses; and that you see barefoot, unclothed, shepherds competing in the construction of tall buildings.”
This is echoed in the Bible, in the little-known Book of Zephaniah:
15 Day of vengeance, day of strain and stress, day of ransack and ruin; dim and dark, overcast with cloud and storm! 16 City is none so well fortified, pinnacle is none so high in air, but shall hear braying of trumpets and the battle-cry.
The barefoot, unclothed, shepherds have brought their kufr to Makkah and Madina.
