Is the total lifespan of this Ummah 1500 years?

Question

What is the reliability of this Hadith? The life of my community will not extend over more than 1500 years.

 

Answer

I haven’t seen this Hadith in the popular Hadith books, neither has ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) mentioned any such narration in his article on this subject.

(Al-Hawi, vol.2 pg.248-256)

However some Scholars have made this claim based on a combination of narrations.

Several other reliable ‘Ulama have refuted this, as Allah Ta’ala has kept the knowledge of Qiyamah and the end of the world a secret.

(Refer: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 6503-6505. Also see Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 1243)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
