Note: Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) has exhorted the
regular recital of Suratul Kahf which
will most certainly save one from the Evils of Dajjal.
Hadhrat Imraan bin
Husain (R.A.) relates that, "I heard Rasulullah (Salallahu
Alayhi Wasallam) saying: "Since the birth of Adam (A.S.) till
the advent of Qiyamah there is no fitnah (evil, test) much
greater that of Dajjal."
Hadhrat Huzaifah (R.A.)
says, Dajjal will be blind in his left eye. He will have very
thick hair on his body and he will also have his own type of
Jannat (Heaven) and Jahannam (Hell) with him: Although his
Jannat will appear as Jannat, in reality it will be Jahannam and
likewise though his Jahannam will appear to be Jahannam, in
reality it will be Jannat.
Imraan bin Husain (R.A.)
says Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Those who
hear about Dajjal should stay far from him. By Allah! A person
will approach him thinking him to be a Believer, but on seeing
his amazing feats he will become his follower."
Ubadah bin Saamit (R.A.)
once said, "I have explained Dajjal to you but I fear that you
might not have understood. Maseeh Dajjal will be short, and his
legs will be crooked. The hair on his head will be extremely
twisted. He will have one eye (with which he can see, and this
is the protruding eye about which other ahadeeth inform us)
while his other eye will be totally flat. It will neither be
deep (in its socket) nor protruding.
If you still have any
doubt regarding him then remember that your Sustainer (Rabb) is
not one-eyed. (Because Dajjal will eventually claim to be
Allah). In a lengthy Hadith narrated by Abu Saeed (R.A.),
Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said:
"Dajjal will come but it will be prohibited and impossible for
him to enter Madina. He will set up camp in a barren land
outside Madina. One person who will be the best of persons will
confront him by saying: "I bear witness that you are the very
Dajjal about whom Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has
Dajjal will say to his
followers, "If I kill this person and then revive him, you
people will still doubt me?"
They will reply,
He will then kill
this person, (according to another narration he will split this
person in two) and thereafter revive him. This person will say,
"I am totally convinced more than ever before that you
definitely are Dajjal."
Dajjal will attempt
to kill this person again but his efforts will now be in vain.
(According to a
hadith, after this incident, Dajjal will not be able to harm
Hadhrat Anas (R.A.)
says that Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Dajjal
will come and finally reach the outskirts of Madina. There will
be three tremors. At that time, all the disbelievers and
hypocrites will flee (from Madina).
In this way Madina
Munawwarah will be purified of all the evil hypocrites.
Hadhrat Asma bint
Yazeed (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi
Wasallam) once came to my house and there he spoke about Dajjal.
He said that before the emergence of Dajjal there will be three
spells of drought. In one year the skies will withold one third
of its rains, causing the earth to withold one third of its
produce. In the second year the skies will withold two thirds of
its rains, causing the earth to withold two thirds of its
produce. In the third year, the skies will withold all its water
and there will be no crops that year. All animals, be they
hooved or toothed, will die as a result. The greatest evil of
Dajjall will be to approach anyone and ask him: "If I bring your
camel back to life, will you then believe that I am your Rabb?"
This person will
reply, "Most certainly."
(from the many Shayateen who will always accompany Dajjal) will
appear before this person in the form of his camel with a fat
hump and fully laden udders.
Likewise Dajjal will
appear before another person whose father and brother have long
passed away and ask him, "If I bring your father and brother
back to life will you believe that I am your Rabb?"
This person will
reply, "Why not?"
Shaytaan will once
again take on the appearance of his brother and father...
Hadhrat Mughira ibn
Shu'ba (R.A.) says that, "No one asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wassallam) about Dajjal as much as myself. Rasulullah (Sallallahu
Alayhi Wassallam) said to me, "How can he possibly harm you?"
I said: "People are
saying that he will have with him a mountain of bread
(provisions) and a river of water."
Alayhi Wassallam) said: "In the sight of Allah he is much more
disgraced than that. (i.e. Allah knows full well that in reality
Dajjal has nothing with him, and all that which appears to be
with him is but deception). (Bukhari and Muslim).
regarding Dajjal inform us that:
He will emerge between
Shaam and Iraq, and his emergence will become known when he is
in Isfahaan at a place called Yahudea.
The Yahudis (Jews) of Isfahaan will be his main followers.
Apart from having mainly Yahudi followers, he will have a great
number of women followers as well.
He will have with him fire and water, but in reality the fire
will be cold water while that what appears to be cold water will
in reality be a blazing fire.
Those who obey him will enter "his Jannat" while those who
disobey him will enter "his Jahannam."
There will be a thick fingernail-like object in his left eye.
The letters "Kaa" "Faa" "Raa" will appear on his forehead and
will be deciphered by all Mu'mineen regardless of them being
literate or not.
He will have a wheatish complexion.
He will travel at great speeds and his means of conveyance will
be a gigantic mule. It is said that he will play beautiful music
which will attract the music lovers.
Dajjal will lay claim to prophethood.
He will then lay claim to Divinity.
He will perform unusual feats.
He will travel the entire world. He will send down rains upon
those who believe in him, which in turn will cause good crops to
grow, trees to bear fruit and cattle to grow fat.
He will cause drought to those who disbelieve in him, resulting
in starvation and hardship for them.
During those trying times the Mu'mineen will satiate their
hunger through the recitation of Subhanallah and La'ilaha
The hidden treasures will spill forth at his command. He will
stay on this Earth for a period of forty days; the length of the
first day will be one year, the second day will be equal to one
month, the third day will be equal to a week and the remaining
days will be normal.
He will be unable to enter Makkah because the Malaikah will be
guarding the Holy City and nor will he be able to enter Madina
because there will be Malaikah guarding each of the seven
entrances to Madina; From Madina he will proceed towards Shaam
where Imaam Mahdi will be stationed.
Finally Isa (A.S.) will descend from the heavens and pursue him
and eventually kill him at present day Lydda (Baad Lud).
