Last verse to be revealed

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Which verse in the Qur’an was revealed last?

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The last Verse (in the Quran) revealed to the Prophet was the Verse dealing with usury (i.e. Riba). [Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, #67]

Narrated Al-Bara: The last Sura that was revealed was Bara’a, and the last Verse that was revealed was: “They ask you for a legal verdict, Say: Allah’s directs (thus) about those who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs.” (4.176) [Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, #129]

Both are sahih hadith, but they contradict each other. Can you explain me this?

Bismillaah

A: Through referring directly to these kitaabs of Hadith (without the medium of an ustaad), you have misunderstood the correct context of these Ahaadith. Below we have explained the correct context of these Ahaadith.

1. This was the last verse to be revealed regarding the laws of riba.

2. This was the last verse to be revealed regarding the laws of inheritance.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
