The hypocrites of today are worse than those of the lifetime of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam)

Narrated Ma'qil (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying, "Any man whom Allah has given the authority of ruling some people and he does not look after them in an honest manner, will never feel even the smell of Paradise." Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 264

Narrated Abi Waih (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman said, "The hypocrites of today are worse than those of the lifetime of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam), because in those days they used to do evil deeds secretly but today they do such deeds openly." Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 229

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "The Hour will not be established till a man passes by a grave of somebody and says, 'Would that I were in his place.' " Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 231

Narrated Haritha bin Wahb (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): I heard Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying, "Give in charity because there will come a time on the people when a person will go out with his alms from place to place but will not find anybody to accept it." Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 236
