Imran ibn Husayn said, "The Prophet said, 'Some people of this Ummah will be swallowed up by the earth
, some will be transformed into animals, and some will be bombarded with stones.' One of the Muslims asked, 'When will that be, O Messenger of Allah?' He said, 'When singers and musical instruments will become popular, and much wine will be drunk.'" (Tirmizi)
