أَكْثرُ مَنْ يموتُ منْ أمتِي بعدَ قضاءِ اللهِ وقدَرِهِ بالعينِ

This is recorded by Imams: Bazzar, Hakim, Tirmidhi and others (rahimahumullah).

‘Allamah Haythami and Hafiz Sakhawi (rahimahumallah) have stated that the narrators are reliable.

Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has declared it sound (hasan).

‘Allamah Zurqani (rahimahullah) says its authentic (sahih).

By the decree of Allah, most of whom will die in my Ummah will be through the effect of the evil eye.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
