May Allaah protect us from the trials of this life and the trials of the Akhirah, Aameen Ya Rabb. :’(
Aameen.SubhanAllaah, dont know the speaker…who is he?
Kitaab Al-Malahim of Sunnan Abu-Dawood.
Narrated Abu Tha'labah al-Khushani: Abu Umayyah ash-Sha'bani said: I asked AbuTha'labah al-Khushani: What is your opinion about the verse "Care for yourselves". He said: I swear by Allaah, I asked the one who was well informed about it; I asked the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) about it. He said: No, enjoin one another to do what is good and forbid one another to do what is evil. But when you see niggardliness being obeyed, passion being followed, worldly interests being preferred, everyone being charmed with his opinion, then care for yourself, and leave alone what people in general are doing; for ahead of you are days which will require endurance, in which showing endurance will be like grasping live coals. The one who acts rightly during that period will have the reward of fifty men who act as he does. Another version has: He said (The hearers asked:) Apostle of Allaah, the reward of fifty of them? He replied: The reward of fifty of you.
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: How will you do when that time will come? Or he said: A time will soon come when the people are sifted and only dregs of mankind survive and their covenants and guarantees have been impaired and they have disagreed among themselves and become thus, interwining his fingers. They asked: What do you order us to do, Apostle of Allaah? He replied: Accept what you approve, abandon what you disapprove, attend to your own affairs and leave alone the affairs of the generality.
"The People will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their food." Someone asked, "Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?" He replied, "No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be froth and scum like that carried down by a torrent (of water), and Allah will take the fear of you from the breasts (hearts) of your enemy and cast al-wahn into your hearts." Someone asked, "O Messenger of Allah, what is al-wahn?" He replied, "Love of the world and dislike of death."
An authentic hadith recorded by Abu Dawud and Ahmad
“Verily, Allaah will never change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves.”

Jazakillaahu Khairan for your post. I thought the speaker sounded like Sheikh Ahmed Ali but so happens that someone else posted the same vid with the name Muhammad Abdul Jabbar on it.
