He wants to pray to Allah to let him live until he witnesses the descent of ‘Eesa (peace be upon him) at the end of time

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My question is that can i make dua so that i am able to live until i see isa peace be upon him return to earth and to see all these signs? This could strengthen my faith alot. So can is it possible for me to make dua to live this long?

Conclusion:

What appears to be the case is that it is not appropriate to pray to live long enough to witness the descent of ‘Eesa and see the signs that will occur at that time. Rather each of us should ask his Lord to give him a long life of obedience to Him and enable him to do righteous deeds, and let the end of his life come when he is doing such deeds.

With regard to strengthening one’s faith, that may be achieved by doing acts of worship and righteous deeds, keeping away from sin and those who commit it, love of dhikr and Qur’an, and focusing on doing that which is right and proper.

And Allah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
