aThe Final Signs of Qiyaamah is THE FORTY DAY SMOKE/FOG
Fog or smoke will cover the skies for forty days. The non-believers will fall unconscious, while Muslims will be ill (develop colds). The skies will then clear up.
Allah says, ”So thou wait for the day when the heaven shall bring a smoke manifest surrounding the people this is a painful Chastisement.” (Surah-Dhukan)
Wasila-Bb-l-Asqa reported, ”I heard the Prophet saying, ”The final hour will not come until you see ten signs. ” (one of the ten mentioned was the smoke) (Muslim)
It is clearly evident from the above verse and Ahadith that the smoke is a major sign of Qiyamah. It will rise and cover the whole world. The smoke will affect both the believers and non-believers alike remaining for a period of 40 days and night. The believers will be affected a little as if suffering from cold while the smoke will enter the brains of the non-believers and make them unconscious 1.

It really scared me about this haze thing.
Am I ready to see my Creator?
Am I ready to face the Qiyamah?
What have I done as a Muslim?
Did I do something that benefited to other Muslims?
Am I good enough to my family?
Am I sincere enough or amanah enough in doing my work?
So many questions that I have to think of and so many answers that I have to dig of.
I just hope that He will make me stronger in order to be a better Muslim.
