Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (r.a.): Jesus (a.s.) on the True Temple

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

According to Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (r.a.), once Jesus (a.s.) and his apostles were outside the temple of Solomon (a.s.), and the apostles said, “O Messiah of God, look at the House of God!  What could be finer?”

Jesus (a.s.) replied, “Amen.  Amen.  But I say to you that God will not leave one stone of this House standing.  Indeed, God will Destroy it because of the misdeeds of its people.  God does not build anything of worth with gold or silver, nor even with these stones.  Righteous hearts are more beloved to God than these stones.  For God Cultivates the earth with righteous hearts; and, in their absence, the earth is destroyed.”
