What is status of following narration?
لا تقوم الساعة حتى يرفع الركن والقرآن
Qiyamah will not occur until the Quran and the Rukn [Yamani of the Ka’bah] are lifted/destroyed
This narration has been recorded with variation in the wording. Some versions have the word ‘dhikr’ [remembrance of Allah] in place of ‘Rukn’.
(Refer: Futuhu Misr Wal Maghrib of ‘Abdur Rahman ibn ‘Abdil Hakam [Demise: 257 A.H], pg. 284 and Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 7531, ‘ilmiyyah edition. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 9854)
Shaykh Ahmad Siddiq Al Ghumari (rahimahullah) says that both these words [i.e. dhikr and rukn] are in conformity to other Hadiths. [i.e. corroborated by other Hadiths]
(Al Mudawi, vol. 6 pg. 402, Hadith: 3700)
The Hadith in question is therefore suitable to quote.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
