Salam.

Been a while iv posted so thought il give u lot something to ponder about which I can't make sense of..

There is famous hadith about signs of final hour that night before sun rising from west will be length of 3 nights.

Does this apply only to hijaz area or entire world? If a country as darkness for 3 nights ( totally possible if world stops spinning) then that means countries facing sun will be in day light for 3 days.

Is this understanding correct? I am fully aware of Allah's power and ability so avoid answers like that. Allah uses sabab ( not that he needs to) so wanted to know with our little understanding of universe what possible scenarios could make entire world fall into darkness

that would involve the sun,moon and earth to come to a complete standstill, also it still leaves the problem of it only affecting small parts of the world. solar eclipses doesn't happen to every single country simultaneously nor do all countries get totality.

Abdullah-b-Abu-Owfa reported that I heard the Messenger of Allah Peace and blessings be upon him say, "Verily a night will come upon the people which is equivalent of three of your nights. When it comes those that engage themselves in worship during the night will recognise it. One of them will stand in prayer, read his Hizb (The normal amount he has made the habit of reading) and then go to sleep. Thereafter he will wake up (for the second time) read his Hizb in prayer and go to sleep. While this is the situation the people will begin to shout, scream and call one another. They will say, "What's this?" With fear they will run to the mosque. To their surprise they will see that the sun has risen from the west. When it reaches the middle of the sky it will return and set in the west." He said Peace and blessings be upon him, "That is when Imaan will not benefit anyone (who brings faith after seeing the sign)." (An-Nihaya)

Based on what i remember from old school lectures i think it is just for hijaz. As i think the day the sun rises from the west it will reach its zenith and then set as normal again. It won't rise from west everyday onwards thus its makes sense Allah stops the earth at a given moment when hijaz is in darkness then restarts it but spinning the other way before returning it back to normal.

Either way the outcome is same. Its a major undeniable sign which closes door of taubah.

Apparently it is for Hijaz or similar time zones,and the Hadeeth is mentioning pious Muslims who rise up for night prayers.It is possible that other time zones will get a prolonged day instead of night,but the Hadeeth did not mention it...

It is usually not very helpful to involve science into such matters.The Prophets talk to people in their language, use their idiom and traditions and speak according to their level of understanding.They usually take references from the same environment where they live.That is,because rejecting the words of prophets is kufr,and giving the people information above and beyond their comprehension is like creating doubts in their minds,so factual but limited and necessary information is provided to them...

The meaning of a Hadeeth(not the exact words) tells us:”When you tell people something which is beyond their understanding,then indeed it will become fitna for some of them”(کنزُ العُمّال ج ۱۰ ص ۸۴ حدیث ۲۹۰۰۷ )

Syedena Abdullah Ibne Abbas Radhiallaho anhu says:”Tell people only what they can comprehend or else they will start rejecting Allah and his Rasool pbuh”

Also narrated:

کَلِّمِ النَّاسَ عَلٰی قَدَرِ عُقُولِھِمْ
(Talk to people according to their level of understanding)
(مرقاۃ المفاتیح،کتاب الفتن،ج۹،ص۳۷۳

Wallaho Alam

The Earth does not need to stop spinning for such a phenomenon.

There are 6 months of daylight on one side of the Earth and 6 months of darkness on the otherside of the Earth, then they the opposite situation. This is a natural thing.

The Rising of the sun from the West is another phenomenon that will occur towards the end of times, after which there will be no forgiveness or turning back, Allahu Alum.

Yes that is correct. Places like Greenland and artic. 6 months they always get sunlight as its always facing the sun and the other 6 months it isn't

Now as I've said i have no doubt in Allah's qudrat and power but Allah uses sabab on most occasions. Darkness generally is a result of lack of sun light. For the entire planet to have 3 nights worth of darkness would mean those facing away from the sun ( night time) the earth will stop spinning and those facing the sun will have some sort of eclipse.
