    Of course, when these types of narrations come that inform us of future events, they are meant as an indhar (warning), not iqrar (approval) of what is being mentioned:

    1 - Abu Sa’id al-Khudri narrated that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

    “Indeed, you will follow the practices of those who came before you - handspan by handspan, armspan by armspan - to the point that if they follow the lizard into its hole, you would follow them in this.” We said: “O Messenger of Allah, are you referring to the Jews and Christians?” He replied: “Who else?”

    [Reported by Ahmad, al-Bukhari, and Muslim]

    2 - al-Mustawrad bin Shaddad said that the Messenger of Allah said:


    “This nation (i.e. the Muslims) will not leave anything from the practices of the people who came before it except that it will adopt them.”

    [Reported by at-Tabarani, and al-Haythami said: "Its narrators are trustworthy."]

    3 - Hudhayfah said:


    “You will follow ways of those who came before you, step by step. You will not avoid their path, and it will not avoid you.”

    [Reported by al-Ajuri in 'ash-Shari'ah']

    4 - He also said:

    “There is nothing that Bani Isra’il did except that you will do the same.” So, a man asked: “Will there be homosexuality amongst us?” He replied: “Yes.”

    [Reported by Ibn Abi Shaybah]

    5 - ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud said:

    “By Allah, you resemble Bani Isra’il more than anyone else. You will not leave a single thing that they did except that you will also do it, and there will not be a single characteristic that they had except that you will also have it.”

    [Reported by Muhammad bin Nasr al-Maruzi in 'as-Sunnah']

    6 - Ibn Mas’ud and Hudhayfah both said:

    “You resemble Bani Isra’il more than anyone else in their character and practice. You imitate them in their actions step by step, except that I am not sure whether or not you will worship a calf!”

    [Reported by al-Baghawi and Ibn Abi Shaybah]

    7 - Ibn ‘Abbas said:

    “There isn’t anything that was with Bani Isra’il except that it will also be with you.”

    [Reported by Nu'aym bin Hammad and Muhammad bin Nasr al-Maruzi]

    8 - ‘Ubadah bin as-Samit said:


    “By Allah, there is nothing about those who came before you except that it will also be with you.”

    [Reported by Muhammad bin Nasr al-Maruzi]

    9 - Ibn ‘Umar said:


    “You will adopt the practices of those who came before you - the good and the bad.”

    [Reported by al-Maruzi]

    10 - al-Walid said that he was walking with Abyad, one of the Companions of the Prophet, to visit a friend:

    “So, we entered the mosque, and we saw the people praying. I said: “Praise be to Allah who has caused Islam to unite white and black people!” So, Abyad said: “By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, the Day of Resurrection will not come until you adopt some practices of every religion.” I said: “Will this be because people will leave Islam?” He replied: “They will pray like you pray, they will sit in your gatherings, they will live amongst you, and they will adopt some of the practices of every religion.”"

    [Reported by 'Abdan in the book 'as-Sahabah']
