No one knows when the Day of Resurrection (Qayamat) will come except Allah subhanahu wata'ala
Author: Imam Imaduddin Abul-Fida Ismail Ibn Kathir       Submitted by Kashif Butt on 18 August 2009
People ask you concerning the Hour, say: "The knowledge of it is with Allah only. What do you know It may be that the Hour is near!"

Surah Al-Ahzab (33:63)

Here Allah subhanahu wata'ala tells His Messenger Peace be upon him that he cannot know when the Hour will come, and if people ask him about that, He instructs him to refer the matter to Allah subhanahu wata'ala, may He be exalted, as Allah subhanahu wata'ala says in Surat Al-A'raf, even though that was revealed in Makkah and this Surah was revealed in Al-Madinah. Allah subhanahu wata'ala continues to tell him to refer this matter to the One Who knows about it, but He tells him that it is at hand, as He says:

What do you know It may be that the Hour is near!

This is like the Ayat:

The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder.
Surah Al-Qamar (54:1)

Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness.
Surah Al-Anbiya (21:1)

The Event (the Hour) ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it.
Surah An-Nahl (16:1)
