A narration regarding Musa (‘alayhis salam) on the Day of Resurrection


What is authenticity of following narration ?

أنا أول من تنشق عنه الأرض يوم القيامة فأنفض التراب عن رأسي فآتي قائمة العرش فأجد موسى قائما عندها فلا أدري أنفض التراب عن رأسه قبلي أو كان ممن استثنى الله



Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has cited this narration in Fathul Bari and has referenced the narration to Ibn Marduyah. The Hadith will therefore be deemed reliable according to Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah).

(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 3408, vol. 6 pg. 445)


Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have also recorded similar narrations.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2412, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2373-2374)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
