The Descent of Jesus عليه السلام

by The Albaani Blog


“It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “How will you be when the Son of Mary descends among you and you are led by one from among you?” I said to Ibn Abî Dhi’b, ‘Al-Awzaa’i narrated to us from Az-Zuhri, from Naafi, from Abu Hurairah, “And your Imaam is one of you.” Ibn Abi Dhi’b said. “Do you know what, ‘You are led by one from among you,’ means?” I [i.e., al-Walid ibn Muslim, one of the narrators] said, “Tell me.” He said, “He will lead you according to the Book of your Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, and the Sunnah of your Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.”” [Muslim]

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “This is forthright concerning the fact that Jesus عليه السلام will rule according to our legislation, and will judge according to the Book and the Sunnah, not with something other than these two [sources, whether that be from] the Injeel or Hanafi Fiqh or things like it!”
