A narration on the number of people with ‘Isa (alayhis salam)


Can you please confirm this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“‘Isa ibn Maryam will descend among 800 men and 400 women who will be the best creatures of this earth of that time, similar to the virtue of those who came before them”



Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) through a chain that consists of narrators whom I could not locate as well as a weak narrator.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 8935)


However, the issue of ‘Isa (‘alayhis salam) descending before Qiyamah has been proven beyond doubt in numerous narrations. See At Tasrih Bima Tawatara Fi Nuzulil Masih for further details.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
