Jesus’ Descent, a sign of The hour of Judgement.

Imam Muslim (d.261/839) has narrated from the authority of Hudhaifa bin Usaid Ghifari, that he reported,

" Allah’s Messenger  came to us all of a sudden as we were (busy in a discussion). He said, "What do you discuss about?" They (the Companions) said, "We are discussing about the Last Hour." Thereupon he said, "It will not come until you see ten signs before," and (in this connection) he made a mention of the smoke, Dajjal, the beast, the rising of the sun from the west, the descent of Jesus son of Mary, the Gog and Magog, and land-slides in three places,one in the east, one in the west and one in Arabia at the end of which fire would burn forth from the Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly." The great commentator of the Holy Quran, Hazrat Shah Rafiuddin, in his well known pamphlet "Ala`ma`t-e-Qiya`mat", has divided the preceding signs into two categories, minor and major. He has included the destined event of descent among the major signs for, according to various traditions, after the happening thereof, the coming of the Day of Judgement may be awaited like owners of cattle, who expect the birth of the young one every moment after the period of maturation is completed.
