Are the narrations concerning the burial place of Nabi ‘Isa (‘alayhis salam) authentic?


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has classified the following narration as sound (hasan).

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Salam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

‘ The description of Muhammad and ‘Isa (‘alayhimas salam) is recorded in the Tawrah and Isa Ibn Maryam will be buried with Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3617)


Note: The above Hadith is recorded as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Salam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and should be quoted as such.


A similar statement has also been recorded from the famous Tabi’i  Sa’id Ibnul Musayyab (rahimahullah).

(Refer: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 3626)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
