Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Imam Ibn Kathir’s (rahimahullah) book ‘An Nihayah Fil Fitan Wal Malahim’, are the Hadiths therein suitable to be quoted?



‘Allamah Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) is a reliable Scholar of the 8th century of Islam. He is famous for his commentary on the Holy Quran, among other books.

An Nihayah Fil Fitan Wal Malahim is a book wherein ‘Allamah Ibn Kathir discusses trials before Qiyamah, the signs of Qiyamah, what will happen in the Hereafter, Jannah, Jahannam and various other topics.

The Hadiths he cites in this book will have to be inspected individually. It is not possible to pass a blanket ruling. However, it is important to note, that the Muhaddithun have allowed the usage of weak Hadiths for topics like the ones discussed in this book.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
