Is the hadeeth (prophetic narration)
“There is no Mahdi except ‘Eesa”
saheeh (authentic)?


Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth was narrated by Ibn
Majah in his Sunan (4039).
Almost all the muhadditheen
(hadeeth scholars) are agreed that
this hadeeth is da’eef (weak).”
It was classed as da’eef by al-
Bayhaqi, al-Hakim, Shaykh al-Islam
Ibn Taymiyah in Manhaj al-Sunnah
(8/256), and Ibn al-Qayyim in al-
Manar al-Muneef (p.148).
Al-Thahabi said in Meezan al-I’tidal
(3/535): it is a munkar (rejected)
Al-Qari said in Mirqat al-Mafateeh
(10/183): it is da’eef according to
the consensus of the
It was mentioned by al-Shawkani in
al-Qawaa’id al-Majmoo’ah, 127. He
said: al-San’ani said: (it is)
mawdoo’ (fabricated).

Al-Albani said in Silsilat al-Ahadeeth
al-Da’eefah (77): It is munkar.
Even if this hadeeth were saheeh –
but it is not saheeh – the meaning
would be that there is no one who is
perfectly guided (mahdi) or
protected from sin and error except
‘Eesa ibn Maryam (peace be upon
him). This was stated by al-Qurtubi,
Ibn al-Qayyim and Ibn Katheer.
This does not contradict the fact
that the Mahdi will emerge at the
end of time and that he will join
forces with ‘Eesa ibn Maryam (peace
be upon him), and ‘Eesa will pray
behind him in congregation.
We have already stated in the
answer to question no. the
evidence showing that the Mahdi
will emerge at the end of time with
the attributes that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) described. These saheeh
ahadeeth (authentic narrations)
cannot be contradicted by a da’eef
hadeeth like this one.
See al-Ahadeeth al-Da’eefah, 1/89
by al-Albani. Al-Mawsoo’ah fi
Ahadeeth al-Mahdi al-Da’eefah wa’l-
Mawdoo’ah by al-Bastawi, p. 94-104.
