The Prophet (saas) said:
"People will gather around Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the year 1400."
(Risalat al-Khuruj al-Mahdi, p. 108)
Shia and Sunni Muslims have different beliefs on the Mahdi a.s. Shia Muslims believe he will be the 12th Imam, while Sunni Muslims believe that he will be an ordinary person.
I recommend reading the following book from Harun Yahya about the Signs of Qiyamah, mostly concerning Prophet Issa a.s., the Mahdi, and Dajjal. Pretty interesting.
To touch on the remnants of our signs:
"At that time, the Hour will be close at hand." 'Abdullah Ibn 'Amr said, "I heard the Prophet say, 'Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia will destroy the Ka'ba and steal its treasure and Kiswah. It is as if I could see him now: he is bald-headed and has a distortion in his wrists. He will strike the Ka'ba with his spade and pick-axe.' " (Ahmad)
27.82 Quran "And when the word befalls them, We will bring forth for them a creature from the earth speaking to them, [saying] that the people were, of Our verses, not certain [in faith]."
Baridah said: "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) took me to a
place in the desert, near Makkah. It was a dry piece of land surrounded by
sand. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, 'The Beast will
emerge from this place. It was a very small area." (Ibn Majah.)
It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
sallam) said, "The Beast of the Earth will emerge, and will have with it
the rod of Moses and the ring of Solomon." It was also reported that he
said, "(The Beast) will destroy the noses of the unbelievers with the
ring, - so that people seated around one table will begin to address one
another with the words "O Believer!" or "O Unbeliever!" (i e, everyone's
status will become clear). (Ibn Majah.)
044.010 Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke (or mist) plainly visible,
044.011 Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.
044.012 (They will say:) "Our Lord! remove the Penalty from us, for we do really believe!"
044.013 How shall the message be (effectual) for them, seeing that a Messenger explaining things clearly has (already) come to them,-
044.014 Yet they turn away from him and say: "Tutored (by others), a man possessed!"
044.015 We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while, (but) truly ye will revert (to your ways).
044.016 One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We will indeed (then) exact Retribution!
The wind -
The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned (the coming of the Dajjaal [Antichrist] and the descent of Eesa [Jesus], peace be upon him, and the good life and happiness of mankind at the time of Jesus and afterwards). He said, And whilst the people are living like that, Allaah will send a good wind which will seize them under the armpits and will take the soul of every believer and every Muslim. The evil people will remain and they will behave like donkeys, then the Hour will come upon them. (Reported by Muslim, 5228).
The Sun will Rise from the West -
Another miracle! Retrograde motion on Mars is soon to happen with us as well - the sun will rise from west.
002.258 Hast thou not turned thy vision to one who disputed with Abraham about his Lord, because God had granted him power? Abraham said: "My Lord is He Who Giveth life and death." He said: "I give life and death". Said Abraham: "But it is God that causeth the sun to rise from the East: Do thou then cause him to rise from the West." Thus was he confounded who (in arrogance) rejected faith. Nor doth God Give guidance to a people unjust.
It was also reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
wa sallam) said, "The Hour will not come until the sun rises from the
West. When it rises and the people see it, they will all believe. But that
will be the time when 'No good will it do to a soul to believe in them
Finally, the fire will drive the people to their final gathering place and the three trumpet blasts (fear and terror, death, resurrection).
36.49 They do not await except one blast which will seize them while they are disputing.
36.50 And they will not be able [to give] any instruction, nor to their people can they return.
6.73 And it is He who created the heavens and earth in truth. And the day He says, "Be," and it is, His word is the truth. And His is the dominion [on] the Day the Horn is blown. [He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed; and He is the Wise, the Acquainted.
Peace. Take care during Ramadan inshallah.
