Hadith on Signs: Hurry to good before six signs of the Hour

‘Abis al-Ghifari reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Hasten to do good deeds before six signs: foolish leaders, proliferation of enforcement, bribery in judgment, bloodshed is taken lightly, family ties are severed, and a generation are brought up treating the Quran as musical instruments; they put forth one of them to sing for them, though he is the least of them in understanding.
