Extremely Weak Hadith: "Jesus did not Die; He will Return to You"

Those Muslims who propagate the erroneous view that the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, is alive and did not die, put forward a Hadith to that effect:
قَالَ الْحَسَنُ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِلْيَهُودِ : إِنَّ عِيسَى لَمْ يَمُتْ ، وَإِنَّهُ رَاجِعٌ إِلَيْكُمْ قَبْلَ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ
al-Hasan said: Allah’s Apostle said to the Jews: “Verily, Jesus did not die, and verily, he shall return to you before the Day of Resurrection.”
(Jaami al-Bayan of Imam al-Tabarani 5/448)
However, this Hadith is extremely weak and is therefore rejected. One of the reasons for its weakness is the fact that it is a Mursal report, as al-Hasan al-BasriRA is narrating directly from the Prophet , despite the fact that the two never met, as Hasan al-Basri was from the middle category of the Tabi’un and was not a companion of the Prophet . Therefore, we do not know through whom Hasan al-Basri obtained this alleged saying of the Prophet .
