The statement: 'By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, you will die just as you sleep'

Q 6: “By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, you will die just as you sleep, and you will be resurrected just as you wake up. Truly, it is then Jannah (Paradise) forever or Hellfire forever.” Is this attributed to the Prophet (peace be upon him)? What is its degree of authenticity?


A: We do not know of any source that attributes that quote to the Prophet (peace be upon him). Rather, it is attributed to Qass ibn Sa`idah. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
