Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We acknowledge receipt of your enquiries and the response follows hereunder:

Every individual from the people of the book shall believe in him(Hazrat Isa ‘alayhis salaam) before his death….. [Recorded in Sahih Al Bukhari Vol 1 pg 490]

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) intented to illustrate that every person of the Ahlul-kitaab shall then believe in Hazrat Isa (‘alayhis salaam) after his return to the world.  According to a narration of Ma’aalimut-tanzeel after reciting the verse Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thrice repeated “By the death of Hazrat Isa (‘alayhis salaam) .i.e. Every individual from the people of the book shall believe in him before his death….. [Recorded in Sahih Al Bukhari  Vol 1 pg 490]

The author of Ruhul Ma’aani writes that this is also the reported opinion of Hazrat Ibn Abbas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), Hazrat Hasan (rahmatullahi ‘alayhi) and Qataada (rahmatullahi ‘alayhi). He adds that every individual of the Ahlul-kitaab present at that time of the descent of Hazrat Isa (‘alayhis salaam) will believe in him before his death and all the deen (religions) will be vanquished to be survived only to Islam.

From the above mentioned statement it is understood that Isa ‘alayhis salaam will descend as a disciple of this Ummah and will follow the Shariah Mohammadiyyah (sallaallahu ‘alayhi salaam), due to the fact that the only religion that will survive will be Islam.


And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
