What is the status of the Hadith mentioned under the Tafsir of the last Verse of Surah Qasas, wherein mention is made that Jannah, Jahannam the ‘Arsh and Kursi of Allah will not perish when everything else will perish (just before Qiyamah)?
Imam Abu Hatim (rahimahullah) has recorded the narration in question as the Tafsir of Muqatil (rahimahullah) and not as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). This narration should therefore be quoted as reported.
(Tafsir Ibn Abi Hatim and Ad Durrul Manthur, Surah Qasas, Verse: 88)
Note: The Mufassirun have offered other explanations as well under the commentary of this verse. This is one explanation.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
