Hadith Explanation

Descent of Eesa ibn Maryam

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Eesa ibn Maryam will descend to the white minaret in the east of Damascus, wearing two garments dyed with saffron, placing his hands on the wings of two angels. When he lowers his head, beads of perspiration will fall from it, and when he raises his head, beads like pearls will scatter from it. Every Kafir who smells his fragrance will die, and his breath will reach as far as he can see.” [Muslim: Kitab al-Fitan wa Ashrat al-Sa’ah]

The descent of Eesa ibn Maryam (alaihis salam) is described in this hadith. He will come at the time that the Mujahideen are besieged on Jabal Dukhan in Shaam and the rest of the people are undergoing Dajjal’s tests and temptations. Dajjal will have claimed to be the giver of life and death and will have apparently cut a young man up into two and brought him back to life again. At this point Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will send Eesa (alaihis salam).

Eesa (alaihis salam) will descend aided by angels and his perspiration will be like pearls. He will descend to the white minaret in the east of Damascus. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will have bestowed on him a unique fragrance that will kill the Kuffar. This fragrance will penetrate a distance as great as the limit of his sight.
