From Hadith Answers.

Question:

Based on these narrations found in Sahih Bukhari: It is related that Abu Hurayra said, "Two men insulted one another - one of the men was a Muslim and the other man was a Jew. The Muslim said, By the One who chose Muhammad over all the worlds,' and the Jew said, 'By the One who chose Musa over all the worlds.' At that, the Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew's face. So the Jew went to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and told him
about what had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, summoned the Muslim and asked him about that and he told him. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, stated, 'Do not prefer me over Musa. On the Day of Rising, people will faint, and I will faint with them. I will be the first to regain consciousness, and there will be Musa grasping the Throne. I do not know whether he will be among those who fainted and came to before me, or if he was one of those that Allah excepted.'"

Narrated Authority of: Abu Huraira Two persons, a Muslim and a Jew quarrelled. The Muslim said, "By Him Who gave Muhammad superiority over all the people! The Jew said, "By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all the people!" At that the Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew on the face. The Jew went to the Prophet (SAW) and informed him of what has happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet (SAW) sent for the Muslim and asked him about it. The Muslim informed him of the event.The Prophet (SAW) said, "Do not give me superiority over Moses, for on the Day of Resurrection all the people will fall unconscious and I will be one of them, but I will. be the first to gain consciousness, and will see Moses standing and holding the side of the Throne (of Allah). I will not know whether (Moses) has also fallen unconscious and got up before me, or Allah has exempted him from that stroke." Didn't the Prophet (SAW) say in anither narration his tomb would be the first to open followed by Abu bakr (RA) and Umar (RA) who'll be on this right and left side?

Answer:


The Hadith commentators mention that both the narrations are correct
and
are referring to different occurrences.

1. The Hadith which states that Rasulullah (sallallahu'alayhi
wasallam)
will rise first, refers to when the trumpet will be blown to awaken
the
entire creation for Qiyamah.

2. The Hadith you quoted from Sahih Bukhari is referring another
occurrence which will happen after all will be resurrected.

This Hadith clearly speaks about 'unconsciousness' which isn't
death.
Nabi Musa ('alayhis salam) will possibly be exempted because he
unconscious in his lifetime when he asked to see Allah Ta'ala.

(Fathul Bari, hadith: 3408)

I don't understand the difference. If one is awaken then surely you've regained unconsciousness?

Brother regarding such knowledge, kindly ponder on the advice given in the fatwa linked: askimam.org/public/question_detail/27862

From an academic point of view, we appreciate your zeal for knowledge and make du'ā Allāh preserve your zeal and enthusiasm. However, since this matter neither relates directly to our fundamental beliefs, nor to any obligatory practical matter as a Muslim, we advise that you read the discussion, understand it and carry on without going into a technical analysis of the matter. Allāmah Ibn 'Ābidīn as-Shāmī Rahimahullāh writes:

'It is inappropriate for one to question regarding issues for which there is no real need, such as the manner of the descent of Jibreel ('Alayhis Salaam) ... the location of Jannah and Jahannum, ... etc.'

May Allah make me and all Muslims practically implement our knowledge, especially in doing a'amaal this Ramadan and the rest of our lives. Ameen.

Jazak'Allah brother, I appreciate your concern and sound advise, but I disagree if one is solid in fulfilling the fundamentals and has no deviant intent behind such questions, but it's more than sheer and morbid curiosity then it's all good.
