The first half of the book will almost certainly save people from falling for any claim that misinterprets known signs of the hour or false claimants of being the Mahdi. It looks closely at cult leaders and their methods and how to protect oneself from their lies, delusion or mental illness. This book is a must read in the current time and it's the most important work on the topic as it's written in 2022, which allows the author to look at far more false claims than previous authors could and refer to very recent events such as ISIS. The book is very well written, in an easy to read font and eloquently. A real page turner. The beauty of it is the signs are discussed chronologically with hadith cited as we go along so it gives a clearer picture than ever about the world we live in and how close we are to the end times. Whilst looking at the signs, the author puts to bed misinterpretations of eschatology and calls instead for Muslims to wait for the signs to appear as mentioned in the Quran and sunnah, they being the only certainty. The rest is mere conjecture. The book also helps to strengthen Iman: that these signs are foretold and inescapable and Muslims must concentrate on their own selves and getting closer to Allah rather than be unnecessarily perturbed by goings on.
