‘Allamah Qurtubi (rahimahullah) has mentioned this narration in his Tafsir. Is it authentic and does this mean that the stars will fall on the Earth?

عن ابن عباس قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لا يبقى في السماء يومئذ نجم إلا سقط في الأرض، حتى يفزع أهل الأرض السابعة مما لقيت وأصاب العليا، يعني الأرض



‘Allamah Qurtubi (rahimahullah) has cited this narration under the verse:

وإذا النجوم انكدرت

‘And when the stars lose their luster’

(Surah, At Takwir, Verse: 2)


The apparent meaning of the narration is that the stars will fall. However, I have not come across the full chain of narrators and can therefore not verify the authenticity.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
