Isa jesus(a.s.) will be born or sent.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear Brother,

 

Assalaam o Alaikum Wa Rehmatullahe

 

You are doing a wonderful job!

 

Regarding the email sent(copy pasted below) I would appreciate if you kindly clear the misconception that Isa alehewassalam will be reborn as suggested by the choice of word “rebirth” used by the questioner. Kindly disseminate to all the users that Isa alehewassalam will be sent NOT reborn.

 

And if you have time it would be very nice if you email the small signs and the 10 big signs mentioned in the Hadiths which were stated to indicate that the day of judgment is near!. In my opinion and it may be wrong that the readers should be worried of 2012 or for that matter any other date. Dates are not important what is more important is that the hour is near, it WILL come and that we need to prepare(while we can) for it as Muslims.

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Isa jesus(a.s.) will be born or sent

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.658         Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said "How will you be when the son of Maryam (i.e. Prophet Isa (a.s.)) descends amongst you, and he will judge people by the Law of the Qur'an and not by the law of Gospel!”

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4310 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

The Prophet (saws) said: ‘There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Isa (a.s.). He (Isa (a.s.)) will descend (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the Cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Ad-Dajjal and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.’

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 7015 Narrated byAn-Nawwas ibn Sam'an

In a long hadith describing the incidents of Mahdi, Ad-Dajjah and second coming of the Noble Messenger of Allah Isa ibn Maryam (a.s.), the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “…..It will at this very time that Allah will send Christ, son of Maryam. He will descend at the white minaret on the eastern side of Damascus, wearing two garments lightly dyed with saffron and placing his hands on the wings of two Angels……”

 

In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) it is evident that the Noble Messenger of Allah Hadrat Isa ibn Maryam (a.s.) will descend upon the earth during his second coming and not be ‘re-born’!

 

Your Question: …..And if you have time it would be very nice if you email the small signs and the 10 big signs mentioned in the Hadiths which were stated to indicate that the day of judgment is near!.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqmaan verse 34:

34      Verily the Knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone).

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 187:

187    They ask thee about the (Final) Hour! When will be its appointed time? Say: "The Knowledge thereof is with my Lord (Alone): none but He can reveal as to when it will occur.  Heavy is its burden through the heavens and the earth!  Only all of a sudden will it come to you. They ask thee as if thou wert eager in search thereof!  Say: "The Knowledge thereof is with Allah (Alone), but most men know not."

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 63:

63      Men ask thee concerning the Hour! Say "The Knowledge thereof is with Allah (Alone)": and what will make thee understand? Perchance the Hour is nigh!

 

The exact time and knowledge of the occurrence of the Final Hour or Day of Judgment is known to absolutely none, except Allah Subhanah.

 

There are numerous authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah (saws) which describe the ‘signs’ or ‘portents’ which will approach before the establishment of the Hour…..some amongst them which are general in nature are termed ‘minor’, and the ones which are more specific are termed as ‘major’ Signs of the Hour.

 

Amongst the ‘minor’ Signs of the Hour are:

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.185         Narrated by Abu Musa

The Prophet (saws) said, "Near the Establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish), general ignorance will be wide-spread, and there will be ‘Al-Harj’ (killing) in abundance.’

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.146         Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "The 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."

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.421         Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "The Hour will not be established till my followers copy the deeds of the previous nations and follow them very closely, span by span, and cubit by cubit." It was asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! Do you mean by those (nations) the Persians (polytheists) and the Byzantines (Christians)?" The Prophet (saws) said, "Who can it be other than they?"

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.237         Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is a Prophet, (3) till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of religious scholars) (4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will appear, (7) ‘Al-Harj’ (i.e., killing) will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance--so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his ‘Zakat’, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be offered) will say, 'I am not in need of it,' (9) till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, 'Would that I were in his place,' (11) and till the sun rises from the West.”

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.56 Narrated by Abu Huraira

While the Prophet (saws) was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, "When would the Hour take place?"  Allah's Messenger (saws) replied: "When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour." The Bedouin asked, "How will that be lost?" The Prophet (saws) said, "When power or authority comes in the hands of persons without merit, then wait for the Hour."

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.47 Narrated by Abu Huraira

Amongst the descriptions of the portents of the Hour, the Messenger of Allah (saws) said are:

‘1.      When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.

2.       When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings.’

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.231         Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said: "The Hour will not be established till a man passes by a grave of somebody and says, 'Would that I were in his place.' "

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 5448        Narrated by Anas ibn Malik

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The Last Hour will not come before time contracts, a year being like a month, a month like a week, a week like a day, a day like an hour, and an hour like the kindling of a fire!"

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.503         Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour." It was asked, "How will honesty be lost, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "When authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the Hour."

 

Anas reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "The Hour will not come to pass until the people will vie with each other in (building) the mosques, but very few will attend (the mosques)."

Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, Ibn Hibban, and Ibn Khuzaimah.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.800A       Narrated by Anas

I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "From among the portents of the Hour is that the religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious Scholars) and general ignorance (of religion) will appear; and the drinking of alcoholic drinks will be very common, and (open) illegal sexual intercourse will prevail, and men will decrease in number while women will increase so much so that, for fifty women there will only be one man to look after them."

 

Amongst the ‘major’ Signs of the Hour are:

Sahih Muslim Hadith 6931     Narrated by Hudhayfah ibn Usayd Ghifari

Allah's Messenger (saws) came to us all of a sudden as we were (busy in a discussion) and asked: ‘What do you discuss about?’ (The Companions) said: ‘We are discussing about the Last Hour, O Messenger of Allah (saws)” Thereupon the Prophet (saws) said: ‘It will not come until you see ten signs before and (in this connection) he (saws) made a mention of (1) the smoke, (2) (advent of the )Dajjal, (3) the (emergence of the) Beast, (4) the rising of the sun from the west, (5) the descent of Isa (a.s.), son of Mary, (6) The (emergence of the tribes of) Gog and Magog, and (7) landslides in three places, one in the east, one in the west and one in Arabia at the end of which a fire would burn forth from the Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly.’

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.401         Narrated by Auf bin Mali

The Prophet (saws) said: "Count six Signs that indicate the approach of the Hour: my death, the conquest of Jerusalem, a plague that will afflict you (and kill you in great numbers) as the plague that afflicts sheep, the increase of wealth to such an extent that even if one is given one hundred Dinars, he will not be satisfied; then an affliction which no Arab house will escape, and then a truce between you and Bani Al-Asfar (i.e. the Christians) who will betray you and attack you under eighty flags. Under each flag will be twelve thousand soldiers.’

 

The truth of the matter is that the Hour or Day of Judgment will be established when Allah Subhanah Decrees it to be established, and Allah Subhanah Alone Knows how near or how far that exact time is!  But what one must know for sure and with absolute conviction is that when one’s last breath goes in and does not come out, without an iota of a doubt, their ‘Hour’ will definitely be established!!!!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.518         Narrated by Aisha

Some Bedouins (desert Arabs) used to visit the Prophet (saws) and ask him, "When will the Hour be established?" He (saws) would look at the youngest of all of them and say, "If this (ie. the youngest one) should live till he is very old, ‘your Hour’ (the death of the people addressed) will take place!"

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
