Is the hadiths pertaining to the description and actions of the beast of the earth during the end times "Al Dabbah" authentic? From the prophet Muhamamd (saw) and the companions? Or are they Israreliyat narrations from the people of the book.
Tafsir ibn Kathir, Abu Dawood Al-Tayalisi in his Musnad, Imam Ahmad, Jami at Tirmidhi etc report the following narrations from the prophet Muhammad (saw) and some of the companions. (see links below) Attributed to the Prophet from Abu Hurayah.. the beast with staff of Moses and ring of Solomon adorning face of believers and striking non believers. And the description of the beast with the eyes of pigs, ears of elephant and neck of ostrich etc from ibn Az Zubayr.
Are these marfo narrations authentic from Prophet Muhammad and how did the companions come to know of the description of the beast are these mawqoof Israreliyat narrations or attributetd to the Prophet Muhammad are they authentic?
