Pre-islamic period ignorance

The sayings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

“Among my people there are four characteristics belonging to pre-Islamic period of ignorance which they do not abandon:

1. boasting of high rank,

2. Reviling other peoples' genealogies,

3. seeking rain by stars, and

4. wailing. And he (further) said: If the wailing woman does not repent before she dies, she will be made to stand on the Day of Resurrection wearing a garment of pitch and a chemise of mange.

Sahih Muslim Hadith 2033 Narrated by Abu Malik al-Ash'ari
