Another Prophet\u2019s \ufdfa Prophecy Came True As Earth Has Started Spinning Faster\nJune 29, 2022, was 1.59 milliseconds shorter than an average day. This means that it was a shorter day than most. But even though it was a shorter day, it still had the same number of hours.\nThe Hour (Last Day) will not be established until (religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious learned men), earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, afflictions will appear, murders will increase and money will overflow amongst you. (Bukhari)\n\nThe hour shall not be established until time is constricted, and the year is like a month, a month is like the week, and the week is like the day, and the day is like the hour, and the hour is like the flare of the fire. (Tirmidhi)\nThe average day is comprised of 24 hours. This equates to 86,400 seconds. That\u2019s a lot of time!\nBut in recent years, the Earth\u2019s rotation has sped up. As a result, some days are now shorter than they used to be. This change can be traced back to the Earth\u2019s core, where the molten iron is gradually solidifying. As the core solidifies, it becomes more deformable, and the Earth\u2019s rotational speed increases.\nHow Does it Impact Life\nAccording to a report by Forbes, a faster spin would mean Earth gets the same position a little earlier than the previous day. A half-a-millisecond equates to 10-inches or 26 centimetres at the equator. In short, GPS satellites\u2014which already have to be corrected for the effect of Einstein\u2019s general relativity theory (the curve of space and time)\u2014are quickly going to become useless.\nIt can also impact smartphones, computers and communication systems at large, which synchronise with Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers). It\u2019s defined as the number of seconds since 00:00:00 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) on 1 January, 1970.\nTo solve all this, international timekeepers may need to add a negative leap second\u2014 a \u201cdrop second.\u201d\nAccording to the Independent, the UTC, the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time, has been updated with a leap second 27 times.
