In latter times, people would deny Dajjal

Is this narration authentic?

“There would be people in the latter times who would deny/consider events relating to Dajjal as a fiction”



Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded this with a weak chain, as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 23. Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 207)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
