Reference of the hadith mentioned below

Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

It is narrated in Surah Dukhaan/ 10-11:

فَارْتَقِبْ يَوْمَ تَأْتِي السَّمَاءُ بِدُخَانٍ مُبِينٍ
يَغْشَى النَّاسَ هذَا عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

So watch out for the day when the sky brings on a manifest smoke,

enveloping the people. [They will cry out:] ‘This is a painful punishment.

There was a severe famine in Makka, in which men were so weakened by hunger that they saw mist before their eyes when they looked at the sky. It is reported that it was as severe a drought as the seven years dry spell of the times of Yusuf. At last they came to the Holy Prophet and beseeched him to pray to Allah for immediate relief. He prayed and the relief came.

The Holy Prophet said:

“Dukhan refers to the smoke which will be seen on the day of judgement.”

This is a warning to those who reject the true faith. They will see smoke every where on the day of reckoning. It will envelop them as a grievous penalty.

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

The penalty referred here will be inflicted upon the disbelievers before the actual reckoning. As this affliction will afflict the whole humanity, only that prophet who was sent to all mankind as a warner and a bearer of glad tidings and a mercy unto the worlds will alone be able to pray to Allah to remove it.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
