Sahih Muslim Book 001, Hadith Number 0271.

Chapter : Islam was initiated as something strange, and it would revert to its (old position) of being strange, and it would concentrate between the two mosques.

It is narrated on the authority of Ibn 'Umar ('Abdullah b. 'Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.
