Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, reported Allah's Messenger ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) as saying:

Hasten in performing these good deeds (before these) six things (happen): (the appearance) of the Anti christ, the smoke, the beast of the earth, the rising of the sun from the west, the general turmoil (leading to large-scale massacre) and death of masses and individuals.

Sahih Muslim

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) used to remind his companions of the norms of Allah. As well he used to tell them about the major and minor signs of the last day, and warns them of the seditions: be them small and large, hidden or appearant. Accordingly they gathered a great deal of knowledge, they lived between fear and hope, so they won the benefits of the world and the Hereafter, because they learned how to fear Allah, and how to hope in his mercy.

The believing souls do not feel safe against the cunning of Allah. Rather, they fear him and avoid what provokes his anger in all the situations.

The companions of the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) are the elite; once they heard the exhortation, they would have imagined that the Hour had been established, the fire had been prepared for the wicked, and the Paradise had been prepared for the righteous. They live in the light of the Prophetic commandments until they passed away.

The spirit of this commandment, its secret and its impact lies in the saying of the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ): " Hasten in performing these good deeds (before these) six things (happen)”. It has brought together several things that must be taken into account

The first is the mercy of the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) with this nation, his keenness on its faith, and his fear for the nation from the torment of Allah in this world and in the Hereafter.

The second is that a Muslim must prepare himself to deal with the expected matter, even if it seems to him that it is far away, and will not happen in his time.

The third is that a Muslim who fears Allah should multiply the good deeds because they will be the lifeboat on the Day of Judgment, and according to which the degrees will be elevated in the Paradise.

Fourth: the knowledge of the deeds which protect the slave of the torment of Allah so that he choose the best and dearest of them to Allah the Almighty.

As for the fifth: that the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded us to prepare for it is the death. It is like a cup from which all people will drink, forgetting it is an obvious misguidance, and neglecting it and what follows it is an evidence of the corruption of the mind and the cruelty of the heart.

The most wise of people are those who always rember death and prepare to that which follow it.

As for the sixth, it is the "public affairs" A Muslim must hasten to do the good deeds before people preoccupy him so that he forgets to do many acts of worship. He may take up a position that occupies most of his time so that he can not perform the important task for which Allah created him.

This commandment drives us to the means of our happiness in this world and the Hereafter, it take us to the determination and hastening to what pleases Allah the Almighty with all our strength and firmness, before a Day in which there is no exchange and no friendship and no intercession.. so that we endure patiently the tribulations of this world, and we became devoted for the Hereafter. Whoever makes the Hereafter his goal, Allah makes his heart rich, and organizes his affairs, and the world comes to him whether it wants to or not.
