Abstract

The essay aims at analyzing a relatively short fatwā on Jesus’ second coming on earth: Kitāb al-i‘lām bi-ḥukm ‘Īsā ‘alayhi al-salām (The Book of Declaration of Jesus’ Judgement, Peace Be Upon Him). It is found in the well-known al-Suyūṭī’s fatāwā collection, al-Ḥāwī lil-fatāwī, but circulated also separately. Among his numerous contributions to eschatology, this eschatologicallegal treaty explores matters in relation to the judgement of Jesus on his return before the Last Day. Al-Suyūṭī, specifically, addresses an issue that has occupied the minds of commentators on several aḥādīṯ concerning the son of Mary, namely, the kind of rules he will follow.
