Abdullaah ibn Amr ibn al-’Aas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reported that  Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has said that: “In the last  ages of my nation there will be men who ride on means that resemble saddles (’Mayasir’).  They will alight at the doors of the mosques.” [Narrated by Hakim in Al-Mustadrak]

‘Mayasir’ was a very costly and fine silk which the rich men used in those days to cover the saddles of their horses. This hadith means that these saddles which men will ride on at the end of times are not real saddles which are placed on the back of horses, they only resemble saddles.

Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) in all probability is referring to those vehicles which have been invented in this era, i.e., cars and bikes. Because they have comfortable, soft, and tender seats  like saddles in earlier days. And people use these cars and bikes to go to mosques.

At earlier time camels and horses were used as means of transport. No one could have imagined of mechanical vehicles e.g motorcycles, motor cars, etc

Also in earlier days, people were not used to riding camels or horses to go praying to mosques. As villages were very small, so people used to walk to mosques.

Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that people will travel on something having comfortable big seats. i.e. they won’t be riding on beasts and people would alight from them on doors of mosques.

It is a prophecy which we witness every day

when cars and bikes gather in front of the mosques…Subhanallah!
