The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) were never oblivious of Dajjal

Question

What is the reference for this narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibnul Harith ibn Jaz’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

“We did not hear a noise or a tremble/quaking in Madinah but we thought that it was Dajjal as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) [continuously] spoke to us about him and [warned] us of his appearance “

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in Al Mu’jamul Kabir of Imam Tabarani and Musnad Bazzar.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir; Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 336, Musnad Bazzar; Al Bahruz Zakkhar, Hadith: 3787)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
