It was narrated the Prophet (saw) said:

لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى تَكُونَ عَشْرُ آيَاتٍ طُلُوعُ الشَّمْسِ مِنْ مَغْرِبِهَا وَالدَّجَّالُ وَالدُّخَانُ وَالدَّابَّةُ وَيَأْجُوجُ وَمَأْجُوجُ وَخُرُوجُ عِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ وَثَلاَثُ خُسُوفٍ خَسْفٌ بِالْمَشْرِقِ وَخَسْفٌ بِالْمَغْرِبِ وَخَسْفٌ بِجَزِيرَةِ الْعَرَبِ وَنَارٌ تَخْرُجُ مِنْ قَعْرِ عَدَنِ أَبْيَنَ تَسُوقُ النَّاسَ إِلَى الْمَحْشَرِ تَبِيتُ مَعَهُمْ إِذَا بَاتُوا وَتَقِيلُ مَعَهُمْ إِذَا قَالُوا
"The Hour will not begin until ten signs appear:

Other narrations included other signs, for example, it was narrated that the Prophet (saw) said:

لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى تَقْتَتِلَ فِئَتَانِ عَظِيمَتَانِ، يَكُونُ بَيْنَهُمَا مَقْتَلَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ، دَعْوَتُهُمَا وَاحِدَةٌ،
وَحَتَّى يُبْعَثَ دَجَّالُونَ كَذَّابُونَ، قَرِيبٌ مِنْ ثَلاَثِينَ، كُلُّهُمْ يَزْعُمُ أَنَّهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ،
وَحَتَّى يُقْبَضَ الْعِلْمُ،
وَتَكْثُرَ الزَّلاَزِلُ،
وَيَتَقَارَبَ الزَّمَانُ،
وَتَظْهَرَ الْفِتَنُ،
وَيَكْثُرَ الْهَرْجُ وَهْوَ الْقَتْلُ،
وَحَتَّى يَكْثُرَ فِيكُمُ الْمَالُ فَيَفِيضَ،
حَتَّى يُهِمَّ رَبَّ الْمَالِ مَنْ يَقْبَلُ صَدَقَتَهُ،
وَحَتّى يَعْرِضَهُ فَيَقُولَ الَّذِي يَعْرِضُهُ عَلَيْهِ لاَ أَرَبَ لِي بِهِ‏.‏
وَحَتَّى يَتَطَاوَلَ النَّاسُ فِي الْبُنْيَانِ،
وَحَتَّى يَمُرَّ الرَّجُلُ بِقَبْرِ الرَّجُلِ فَيَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي مَكَانَهُ‏.‏
"The Hour will not be established until:
1. two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine;
2. till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah's Messenger;
3. till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of Religious scholars);
4. earthquakes will increase in number;
5. time will pass quickly;
6. afflictions will appear;
7. Al-Harj, (i.e., killing) will increase;
8. till wealth will be in abundance, so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be offered) will say, 'I am not in need of it;
9. till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings;
10. till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, 'Would that I were in his place " (Sahih al-Bukhari 7121)

وَيُشْرَبَ الْخَمْرُ، وَيَظْهَرَ الزِّنَا، وَيَقِلَّ الرِّجَالُ، وَيَكْثُرَ النِّسَاءُ، حَتَّى يَكُونَ لِلْخَمْسِينَ امْرَأَةً الْقَيِّمُ الْوَاحِدُ
11. The drinking of alcoholic drinks will be very common;
12. (open) illegal sexual intercourse will prevail;
13. men will decrease in number while women will increase so much so that, for fifty women there will only be one man to look after them." (Sahih al-Bukhari 6808)

Other narrations added a sign of fighting the other Anti-Islam groups. The Prophet (saw), for example, said:

لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى تُقَاتِلُوا خُوزًا وَكَرْمَانَ مِنَ الأَعَاجِمِ، حُمْرَ الْوُجُوهِ، فُطْسَ الأُنُوفِ، صِغَارَ الأَعْيُنِ، وُجُوهُهُمُ الْمَجَانُّ الْمُطْرَقَةُ، نِعَالُهُمُ الشَّعَرُ
"The Hour will not be established till you fight with the Khudh and the Kirman from among the non-Arabs. They will be of red faces, flat noses and small eyes; their faces will look like flat shields, and their shoes will be of hair." (Sahih al-Bukhari 3590)

In a narration of Bukhari and Muslim, the Prophet (saw) prophesized the final victory against the Jews, he said:

لا تَقُومَ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يُقَاتِلَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ الْيَهُودَ ، حَتَّى يخْتَبِيءَ الْيَهُودِيُّ مِنْ وَراءِ الْحَجَرِ وَالشَّجِرِ ، فَيَقُولُ الْحَجَرُ وَالشَّجِرُ ‏:‏ يا مُسْلِمْ هَذَا يَهُودِيٌّ خَلْفِى تَعَالَى فَاُقْتُلْهُ ، إلّاَ الغَرْقَدْ فَإِِنََّهُ مِنْ شَجَرِ الْيَهُودِ ‏
"The Last Hour will not come until the Muslims fight against the Jews until a Jew will hide behind a stone or a tree, and the stone or the tree will say: 'O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him,' but Al-Gharqad tree will not say so, for it is the tree of the Jews."

Other narrations add the disappearance of religion from above the earth, the Prophet (saw) said:

لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ عَلَى أَحَدٍ يَقُولُ اللَّهُ اللَّهُ
"The Hour (Resurrection) will not occur as long as anyone says: 'Allah, Allah." (Sahih Muslim 148 b)
