I cam across this Hadith - Chapters Regarding Funerals - Sunan Ibn Majah

for Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the Prophets

Which is classified as Da'if.

And in Earth Does Not Consume Prophet's Body - Islamhelpline

The above authentic hadith specifically mentions that the earth does not consume ....

I would like to ask if this narration is true or false because I was about to write an article on it. Is there any hint from Quran?

  • Answering with "True" or "False" is difficult as neither you nor me nor anybody alive have heard the hadith. We can only give a qualification which can be right but could also be wrong, as we have no witnesses. Scholars have qualified ahadith and narrators according some rules, but this doesn't automatically imply that a hadith which has been qualified as sane by them was truly a saying of our Prophet (Peace be upon him) nor will this imply that a hadith qualified as weak was not. Of course when we have some kind of tawatur the degree of truth might get higher! We have no 100% certainty! – Medi1Saif Apr 12 '16 at 7:22
