    50 Signs of the Day of Judgment

    From a lecture at Cambridge University
    Islamic Society, Shawwal 1420 / January 2000.


    The Signs are listed in roughly chronological order, although the order is not necessarily precise, especially for those in the future.

    This is a brief summary of the signs; there are many books, articles, cassettes etc. which discuss these in greater detail. May Allah enable us to recognise and heed the Signs, and strengthen us in the times of tribulation.

      Project

      I find it my concerned to help individuals and organisations to carry out da'awah (Invitation to the Oneness of God) effectively.

      Thus, Halaqah Media is one of my prime subject to assist in their wonderful presentations of truth. Their best sellers are Shadows 1, 2 & 3, Musa Trilogy, and Genetic Futures. They are all relevant to and especially the Shadows Collection signs of the Day of Judgement.

      Shadows 1: The New World Order talks about Freemansonry, Dajjal, and Population Control.

      Shadows 2: Money. It said it all, IMF, World Bank, Interests, Weightless Money, and take note, and Father, Mother and their children all out to get the last dime to assist the family, which they will never have.

      Shadows 3: Covert Ops -- CIA Exposed: Sept 11th, Political Assinations, Organistation above God's Laws, and ruthlessness, Osama bin Ladin, Afghanistan.... Prayers to turn to One True God for Salvation....

      The next Project hopely to dwell into Signs of the Day of Judgement, that is why I want to email this to Halaqah Media and you guys to assist in some or all of Halaqah's Projects.

      Such individuals and organisations as said earlier need our collective help and prayers to come out successful.


      Nice posting Umm 'Abdullah:)

        Appearance of Dajjal
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        First of all, we will quote the reports which mention the
        liars and
        "dajjals" who will precede the coming off the Dajjal, or
        Antichrist, who
        will be the last of them; may Allah curse them and punish
        them with
        Hell-fire.

        Jabir ibn Samurah said, "I heard the Prophet say, 'Just
        before the Hour
        there will be many liars.'" Jabir said, "Be on your guard
        against them."
        (Muslim).

        Jabir said, "I heard the Prophet say, 'Just before the Hour
        there will be
        many liars; among them is the one in al-Yamamah, the 'Ansi
        in San'a', the
        one in Himyar, and the Dajjal. This will be the greatest
        fitnah.'''
        (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, "The Hour will not
        come ... until
        nearly 30 "dajjals" (liars) appear, each one claiming to be
        a messenger
        from Allah.'" (Bukhari Muslim.)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, 'The Hour will not
        come until 30
        "dajjals" appear, each of them claiming to be a messenger
        from Allah,
        wealth increases, tribulations appear and al-Harj
        increases.'" Someone
        asked, 'What is al-Harj?' He said, 'Killing, killing.'
        (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, 'The Hour will not
        come until 30
        "dajjals" appear, all of them lying about Allah and His
        Messenger." (Abu
        Dawud.)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, 'Just before the
        Hour, there will be
        30 "dajjals", each of whom will say, I am a Prophet.'"
        (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, 'There will
        be "dajjals" and liars
        among my Ummah. They will tell you something new, which
        neither you nor
        your forefathers have heard. Be on your guard against them,
        and do not let
        them lead you astray.'" (Ahmad.)

        Thawban said, "The Prophet said, 'There will be 30 liars
        among my Ummah.
        Each one will claim that he is a prophet; but I am the last
        of the
        Prophets (Seal of the Prophets), and there will be no
        Prophet after me.'"
        (Ahmad.)

        The Prophet said, "Verily before the Day of Resurrection
        there will appear
        the Dajjal, and 30 or more liars." (Ahmad.)

        Ibn 'Umar said, "I heard the Prophet say, 'Among my Ummah
        there will be
        more than 70 callers, each of whom will be calling people
        to Hell-fire. If
        I wished, I could tell you their names and tribes.'"

        Abu Bakrah said, "The people spoke a great deal against
        Musaylimah before
        the Prophet said anything about him. Then the Prophet got
        up to give a
        speech and said: '...as for this man about whom you have
        spoken so much -
        he is one of the 30 liars who will appear before the Hour,
        and there is no
        town which will not feel the fear of the Antichrist.'"
        (Ahmad.)

        In another version of this report, the Prophet said, "He is
        one of the 30
        liars who will appear before the Dajjal. There is no town
        which will
        escape the fear of the Djjal, apart from Madinah. At that
        time there will
        be two angels at every entrance of Madinah, warding off the
        fear of the
        Antichrist."

        Anas ibn Malik said, "The Prophet said, 'The time of the
        Dajjal will be
        years of confusion. People will believe a liar, and
        disbelieve one who
        tells the truth. People will distrust one who is
        trustworthy, and trust
        one who is treacherous; and the Ruwaybidah will have a
        say.' Someone
        asked, 'Who are the Ruwaybidah?' He said, 'Those who rebel
        against Allah
        and will have a say in general affairs.'" (Ahmad.)



        Ahadith about the Dajjal
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar said, "'Umar ibn al-Khattab went along
        with the
        Prophet and a group of people to Ibn Sayyad, and found him
        playing with
        some children near the battlement of Banu Maghalah. At that
        time Ibn
        Sayyad was on the threshold of adolescence; he did not
        realise that
        anybody was near until the Prophet struck him on the back.
        The Prophet (S)
        said to him: 'Do you bear witness than I am the Messenger
        of Allah?' Ibn
        Sayyad looked at him and said, 'I bear witness that you are
        the Prophet of
        the unlettered.' Then Ibn Sayyad said to the Prophet, 'Do
        you bear witness
        that I am the Messenger of Allah?' The Prophet dismissed
        this and said, 'I
        believe in Allah and His Messengers.' Then the Prophet
        asked him, 'What do
        you see?' Ibn Sayyad said, 'Sometimes a truthful person
        comes to me, and
        sometimes a liar.' The Prophet said to him, 'You are
        confused', then he
        said, 'I ahiding something from you.' Ibn Sayyad said, 'It
        is Dukh.' The
        Prophet said, 'Silence! You will not be able to go beyond
        your rank.'
        'Omar ibn al-Khattab said, 'O Messenger of Allah, shall I
        cut off his
        head?' The Prophet said, 'If he is (the Dajjal) you will
        not be able to
        overpower him, and if he is not, then killing will not do
        you any good.'"

        Salim ibn 'Abd Allah said, "I heard 'Abd Allah ibn 'Omar
        say, 'After that,
        the Prophet and Ubayy ibn Ka'b went along to the palm trees
        where Ibn
        Sayyad was. The Prophet started to hide behind a tree, with
        the intention
        of hearing something from Ibn Sayyad before Ibn Sayyad saw
        him. The
        Prophet saw him lying on a bed, murmuring beneath a
        blanket. Ibn Sayyad's
        mother saw the Prophet hiding behind a tree, and said to
        her son, "O Saf
        (Ibn Sayyad's first name), here is Mohammad!" Ibn Sayyad
        jumped up, and
        the Prophet said, "If you had left him alone, he would have
        explained
        himself.''

        Salim said, "Abd Allah ibn 'Omar said, The Prophet stood up
        to address the
        people. He praised Allah as He deserved to be praised, then
        he spoke about
        the Dajjal: 'I warn you against him; there is no Prophet
        who has not
        warned his people against him ? even Noah warned his people
        against him.
        But I will tell you something which no other Prophet has
        told his people.
        You must know that the Dajjal is one-eyed, and Allah is not
        one-eyed.'"

        Ibn Shihab said: "'Omar ibn Thabit al-Ansari told me that
        some of the
        Companions of the Prophet told him that on the day when he
        warned the
        people about the Dajjal, the Prophet said: "There will be
        written between
        his eyes the word Kafir (unbeliever). Everyone who resents
        his bad deeds -
        or every believer- will be able to read it." He also
        said, "You must know
        that no one of you will be able to see his Lord until he
        dies.'" (Muslim,
        Bukhari).

        Ibn 'Omar said, "The Prophet mentioned the Dajjal to the
        people. He said,
        "Allah is not one-eyed, but the Dajjal is blind in his
        right eye, and his
        eye is like a floating grape.'" (Muslim)

        Anas ibn Malik said, "The Prophet said, 'there has never
        been a Prophet
        who did not warn his people against that one-eyed liar.
        Verily he is
        one-eyed and your Lord is not one-eyed. On his forehead
        will be written
        the letter Kaf, Fa, Ra (Kafir).'" (Muslim, Bukhari)

        Hudhayfah said, "The Prophet said, 'I know more about the
        powers which the
        Dajjal will have than he will know himself. He will have
        two flowing
        rivers: one will appear to be pure water, and the other
        will appear to be
        flaming fire. Whosoever lives to see that, let him choose
        the river which
        seems to be fire, then let him close his eyes, lower his
        head and drink
        from it, for it will be cold water. The Dajjal will be one-
        eyed; the place
        where one eye should be will be covered by a piece of skin.
        On his
        forehead will be written the word Kafir, and every
        believer, whether
        literate or illiterate, will be able to read it.'" (Muslim)

        Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet said, 'Shall I tell you
        something about
        the Dajjal which no Prophet has ever told his people before
        me? The Dajjal
        is one-eyed and will bring with him something which will
        resemble Paradise
        and Hell; but that which he calls Paradise will in fact be
        Hell. I warn
        you against him as Noah warned his people against him.'"
        (Bukhari, Muslim)

        Mohammad ibn Munkadir said: "I saw Jabir ibn 'Abd Allah
        swearing by Allah
        that Ibn Sayyad was the Dajjal, so I asked him, 'Do you
        swear by Allah?'
        He said, 'I heard 'Omar swear to that effect in the
        presence of the
        Prophet, and the Prophet did not disapprove of it.'"

        Some 'ulama' (scholars) say that some of the Sahabah
        (Companions of the
        Prophet) believed Ibn Sayyad to be the greater Dajjal, but
        that is not the
        case: Ibn Sayyad was a lesser dajjal.

        Ibn Sayyad travelled between Makkah and Madinah with Abu
        Sa'id, and
        complained to him about the way that people were saying
        that he was the
        Dajjal. Then he said to Abu Sa'id, "Did not the Prophet say
        that the
        Dajjal would not enter Madinah? I was born there. Did not
        he say that he
        would not have any children? - I have children. Did not he
        say that he
        would be a Kafir? - I have embraced Islam. Of all the
        people, I know the
        most about him: I know where he is now. If I were given the
        opportunity to
        be in his place, I would not resent it.'" (Bukhari, Muslim)

        There are many Ahadith about Ibn Sayyad, some of which are
        not clear as to
        whether he was the Dajjal or not. We shall see Ahadith
        which indicates
        that the Dajjal is not Ibn Sayyad, as in the Hadith of
        Fatimah Bint Qays
        al-Fahriyyah, although this does not mean that he was not
        one of the
        lesser Dajjal; but Allah knows best.

        THE HADITH OF FATIMAH BINT QAYS: 'Amir ibn Sharahil Sha'bi
        Sha'b Hamdan
        reported that he asked Fatimah bint Qays, the sister of
        Dahhak ibn Qays,
        who was one of the first Muhajirat, "Tell me a Hadith which
        you heard
        directly from the Prophet with no narrator in between." She
        said, "I can
        tell you if you like." He said, 'Yes, please tell me," she
        said, "I
        married Ibn al-Mughirah, who was one of the best of the
        youth of Quraysh
        in those days. But he fell in the first Jihad on the side
        of the Prophet.

        "When I became a widow, 'Abd al-Rahman ibn 'Awf, one of the
        companions of
        the Prophet sent me a proposal of marriage. The Prophet
        also sent me a
        proposal of marriage on behalf of his freedman Usamah ibn
        Zayd. I had been
        told that the Prophet had said, 'He who loves me should
        also love Usamah.'
        When the Prophet spoke to me, I said, 'It is up to you:
        marry me to
        whomever you wish.'

        "The Prophet said, 'Go and stay with Umm Sharik.' Umm
        Sharik was a rich
        Ansari (Muslim originally from Madinah) woman, who spent
        much in the way
        of Allah and entertained many guests. I said, 'I will do as
        you wish.'
        Then he said, 'Don't go. Umm Sharik has many guests, and I
        would not like
        it if your head or leg were to become uncovered
        accidentally and people
        saw something you would not wish them to see. It is better
        if you go and
        stay with your cousin 'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr ibn Umm Maktum'
        (Abd Allah was
        of the Banu Fihr of Quraysh, the same tribe as that to
        which Fatima
        belonged).

        "So I went to stay with him, and when I had completed
        my 'Iddah (perio of
        waiting), I heard the Prophet's announer calling for
        congregational
        prayer. I went out to the mosque, and prayed behind the
        Prophet. I was in
        the women's row, which was at the back of the congregation.
        When the
        Prophet had finished his prayer, he sat on the pulpit,
        smiling, and said,
        'Everyone should stay in his place.' Then he said, 'Do you
        know why I had
        asked you to assemble?' The people said, 'Allah and His
        Messenger know
        best.'

        "He said, 'By Allah, I have not gathered you here to give
        you an
        exhortation or a warning. I have kept you here because
        Tamim al-Dari, a
        Christian man who has come and embraced Islam, told me
        something which
        agrees with that which I have told you about the Dajjal. He
        told me that
        he had sailed in a ship with 30 men from Banu Lakhm and
        Banu Judham. The
        waves had tossed them about for a month, then they were
        brought near to an
        island, at the time of sunset. They landed on the island,
        and were met by
        a beast who was so hairy that they could not tell its front
        from its back.
        They said, "Woe to you! What are you?" It said, "I am al-
        Jassasah." They
        said, "What is al-Jassasah?" It said, "O people, go to this
        man in the
        monastery, for he is very eager to know about you." Tamim
        said that when
        it named a person to us, we were afraid lest it be a devil.

        "Tamim said, 'We quickly went to the monastery. There we
        found a huge man
        with his hands tied up to his neck and with iron shackles
        between his legs
        up to the ankles. We said, "Woe to you, who are you?" He
        said, "You will
        soon know about me. Tell me who you are." We said, "We are
        people from
        Arabia. We sailed in a ship, but the waves have been
        tossing us about for
        a month, and they brought us to your island, where we met a
        beast who was
        so hairy that we could not tell its front from its back. We
        said to it,
        "Woe to you! What are you? and it said , "I am al-
        Jassasah." We asked,
        "What is al-Jassasah?" and it told us, "Go to this man in
        the monastery,
        for he isvery eager to know about you." So we came to you
        quickly,
        fearinthat it might be a devil.'

        "The man said, "Tell me about the date-palms of Baysan.' We
        said, 'What do
        you want to know about them?" He said, 'I want to know
        whether these trees
        bear fruit or not.' We said, 'Yes.' He said, 'Soon they
        will not bear
        fruit.' Then he said, "Tell me about the lake of al-
        Tabariyyah [Tiberias,
        in Palestine].' We said, 'What do you want to know about
        it?" He asked,
        'Is there water in it?' We said, 'There is plenty of water
        in it.' He
        said, 'Soon it will become dry.' Then he said, 'Tell me
        about the spring
        of Zughar.' We said, 'What do you want to know about it?'
        He said, 'Is
        there water in it, and does it irrigate the land?" We
        said, 'Yes, there is
        plenty of water in it, and the people use it to irrigate
        the land.'

        "Then he said, "Tell me about the unlettered Prophet ' what
        has he done?'
        We said, 'He has left Makkah and settled in Yathrib.' He
        asked, 'Do the
        Arabs fight against him?' We said, 'Yes.' He said, 'How
        does he deal with
        them?' So we told him that the Prophet had overcome the
        Arabs around him
        and that they had followed him. He asked, 'Has it really
        happened?' We
        said, 'Yes.' He said, 'It is better for them if they follow
        him. Now I
        will tell you about myself. I am the Dajjal. I will soon be
        permitted to
        leave this place: I will emerge and travel about the earth.
        In 40 nights I
        will pass through every town, except Makkah and Madinah,
        for these have
        been forbidden to me. Every time I try to enter either of
        them, I will be
        met by an angel bearing an unsheathed sword, who will
        prevent me from
        entering. There will be angels guarding them at every
        passage leading to
        them.'

        Fatimah said, "The Prophet striking the pulpit with his
        staff, said: 'This
        is Tayyibah, this is Tayyibah, this is Tayyibah, [ie
        Madinah]. Have I not
        told you something like this?' The people said, 'Yes.' He
        said, 'I liked
        the account given to me by Tamim because it agrees with
        that which I have
        told you about the Dajjal, and about Makkah and Madinah.
        Indeed he is in
        the Syrian sea or the Yemen sea. No, on the contrary, he is
        in the East,
        he is in the East, he is in the East' and he pointed
        towards the East.
        Fatimah said: I memorised this from the Prophet." (Muslim).

        'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar said, "The Prophet (S) said, 'While I
        was asleep, I
        saw myself a dream performing Tawaf (circumambulation)
        around the Ka'bah.
        I saw a ruddy man with lank hair and water dripping from
        his head. I said,
        'Who is he?" and they said, "The son of Mary." Then I
        turned around and
        saw another man with a huge body, red complexion, curly
        hair and one eye.
        His other eye looked like a floating grape. They
        said, "This is the
        Dajjal." The one who most resembles him is Ibn Qatan, a man
        from the tribe
        of al-Khuza'ah'." (Bukhari, Muslim).

        Jabir ibn 'Abd Allah said, "The Prophet said, 'The Dajjal
        will appear at
        the end of time, when religion is taken lightly. He will
        have 40 days in
        which to travel throughout the earth. One of these days
        will be like a
        year, another will be like a month, a third will be like a
        week, and the
        rest will be like normal days. He will be riding a donkey;
        the width
        between its ears will be 40 cubits. He will say to the
        people: "I am your
        lord." He is one-eyed, but your Lord is not one-eyed. On
        his forehead will
        be written the word Kafir, and every believer, literate or
        illiterate,
        will be able to read it. He will go everywhere except
        Makkah and Madinah,
        which Allah has forbidden to him; angels stand at their
        gates. He will
        have a mountain of bread, and the people will face
        hardship, except for
        those who follow him. He will have two rivers, and I know
        what is in them.
        He will call one Paradise and one Hell. Whoever enters the
        one he calls
        Paradise will find that it is Hell, and whoever enters the
        one he calls
        Hell will find that it is Paradise. Allah will send with
        him devils who
        will speak to the people. He will bring a great
        tribulation; he will issue
        a command to the sky and it will seem to the people as if
        it is raining.
        Then he will appear to kill someone and bring him back to
        life. After that
        he will no longer have this power. The people will
        say, "Can anybody do
        something like this except the Lord?" The Muslims will flee
        to Jabal
        al-Dukhan in Syria, and the Dajjal will come and besiege
        them. The siege
        will intensify and they will suffer great hardship. Then
        Jesus son of Mary
        will descend, and will call the people at dawn: "O people,
        what prevented
        you from coming out to fight this evil liar?" They will
        answer, "He is a
        Jinn." Then they will go out, and find Jesus son of Mary.
        The time for
        prayer will come, and the Muslims will call on Jesus to
        lead the prayer,
        but he will say, "Let your Imam lead the prayer." Their
        Imam will lead
        them in praying Salat al-Subh (Morning prayer), then they
        will go out to
        fight the Dajjal. When the liar sees Jesus, he will
        dissolve like salt in
        water. Jesus will go to him and kill him, and he will not
        let anyone who
        followed him live'." (Ahmad).





        Warnings against the Dajjal
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        THE HADITH OF AL-NUWAS IBN SAM'AN AL-KILABI

        Al-Nuwas ibn Saman said, "One morning the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) spoke about the Dajjal. Sometimes he described him
        as
        insignificant, and sometimes he described him as so
        dangerous that we
        thought he was in the clump of date-palms nearby. When we
        went to him
        later on, he noticed that fear in our faces, and
        asked, 'What is the
        matter with you? We said, 'O Messenger of Allah, this
        morning you spoke of
        the Dajjal; sometimes you described him as insignificant,
        and sometimes
        you described him as being so dangerous that we thought he
        was in the
        clump of date-palms nearby.

        "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, 'I fear
        for you in other
        matters besides the Dajjal. If he appears whilst I am among
        you, I will
        contend with him on your behalf. But if he appears while I
        am not among
        you, then each man must contend with him on his own behalf,
        and Allah will
        take care of every Muslim on my behalf. The Dajjal will be
        a young man,
        with short, curly hair, and one eye floating. I would liken
        him to 'Abd
        al-Uzza ibn Qatan. Whoever amongst you lives to see him
        should recite the
        opening Ayat of Surat al-Kahf. He will appear on the way
        between Syria and
        Iraq, and will create disaster left and right. O servants
        of Allah, adhere
        to the Path of Truth."

        "We said, 'O Messenger of Allah, for the day which is like
        a year, will
        one days prayers be sufficient? He said, 'No, you must make
        an estimate of
        the time, and then observe the prayers."

        "We asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, how quickly will he walk
        upon the earth?
        He said, 'Like a cloud driven by the wind. He will come to
        the people and
        call them (to a false religion), and they will believe in
        him and respond
        to him. He will issue a command to the sky, and it will
        rain; and to the
        earth, and it will produce crops. After grazing on these
        crops, their
        animals will return with their udders full of milk and
        their flanks
        stretched. Then he will come to another people and will
        call them (to a
        false religion), but they will reject his call. He will
        depart from them;
        they will suffer famine and will possess nothing in the
        form of wealth.
        Then he will pass through the wasteland and will
        say, 'Bring forth your
        treasures, and the treasures will come forth, like swarms
        of bees. Then he
        will call a man brimming with youth; he will strike him
        with a sword and
        cut him in two, then place the two pieces at the distance
        between an
        archer and his target. Then he will call him, and the young
        man will come
        running and laughing."

        "At that point, Allah will send the Messiah, son of Mary,
        and he will
        descend to the white minaret in the east of Damascus,
        wearing two garments
        dyed with saffron, placing his hands on the wings of two
        angels. When he
        lowers his head, beads of perspiration will fall from it,
        and when he
        raises his head, beads like pearls will scatter from it.
        Every Kafir who
        smells his fragrance will die, and his breath will reach as
        far as he can
        see. He will search for the Dajjal until he finds him at
        the gate of
        Ludd*, where he will kill him."

        "Then a people whom Allah has protected will come to Jesus
        son of Mary,
        and he will wipe their faces (ie wipe the traces of
        hardship from their
        faces) and tell them of their status in Paradise. At that
        time Allah will
        reveal to Jesus: "I have brought forth some of My servants
        whom no-one
        will be able to fight. Take My servants safely to al-Tur."

        "Then Allah will send Gog and Magog, and they will swarm
        down from every
        slope. The first of them will pass by the Lake of Tiberias,
        and will drink
        some of its water; the last of them will pass by it and
        say, "There used
        to be water here." Jesus, the Prophet of Allah, and his
        Companions will be
        besieged until a bull's head will be dearer to them than
        one hundred
        dinars are to you nowadays."

        "Then Jesus and his Companions will pray to Allah, and He
        will send
        insects who will bite the people of Gog and Magog on their
        necks, so that
        in the morning they will all perish as one. Then Jesus and
        his Companions
        will come down and will not find any nook or cranny on
        earth which is free
        from their putrid stench. Jesus and his Companions will
        again pray to
        Allah, Who will send birds like the necks of camels; they
        will seize the
        bodies of Gog and Magog and throw them wherever Allah
        wills. Then Allah
        will send rain which no house or tent will be able to keep
        out, and the
        earth will be cleansed, until it will look like a mirror.
        Then the earth
        will be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its
        blessing. On that
        day, a group of people will be able to eat from a single
        pomegranate and
        seek shelter under its skin (ie the fruit would be so big).
        A milch camel
        will give so much milk that a whole party will be able to
        drink from it; a
        cow will give so much milk that a whole tribe will be able
        to drink from
        it; and a milch-sheep will give so much milk that a whole
        family will be
        able to drink from it. At that time, Allah will send a
        pleasant wind which
        will soothe them even under their armpits, and will take
        the soul of every
        Muslim. Only the most wicked people will be left, and they
        will fornicate
        like asses; then the Last Hour will come upon them."
        (Muslim)

        A HADITH NARRATED FROM ABU UMAMAH AL-BAHILI

        ABU Umamah al-Bahili said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam)
        delivered a speech to us, most of which dealt with the
        Dajjal and warned
        us against him. He said, 'No tribulation on earth since the
        creation of
        Adam will be worse than the tribulation of the Dajjal.
        Allah has never
        sent a Prophet who did not warn his Ummah against the
        Dajjal. I am the
        last of the Prophets, and you are the last Ummah. The
        Dajjal is emerging
        among you and it is inevitable. If he appears while I am
        still among you,
        I will contend with him on behalf of every Muslim. But if
        he appears after
        I am gone, then every person must contend with him on his
        own behalf. He
        will appear on the way between Syria and Iraq, and will
        spread disaster
        right and left. O servants of Allah adhere to the path of
        Truth. I shall
        describe him for you in a way that no Prophet has ever done
        before.

        He will start by saying that he is a Prophet, but there
        will be no Prophet
        after me. Then he will say, "I am your Lord," but you will
        never see your
        Lord until you die. The Dajjal is one-eyed, but your Lord,
        glorified be
        He, is not one-eyed. On his forehead will be written the
        word Kafir, which
        every Muslim, literate or illiterate, will be able to read.
        Among the
        trhewill bring will be the Paradise and Hell he will offer;
        but that which
        he calls Hell will be Paradise, and that which he calls
        Paradise will be
        Hell. Whoever enters his Hell, let him seek refuge with
        Allah and recite
        the opening Ayat of Surat al-Kahf, and it will become cool
        and peaceful
        for him, as the fire became cool and peaceful for Abraham.

        "He will say to a Bedouin, What do you think if I bring
        your father and
        mother back to life for you? Will you bear witness that I
        am your lord?
        The Bedouin will say Yes, so two devils will assume the
        appearance of his
        father and mother, and will say, "O my son, follow him for
        he is your
        lord."

        "He will be given power over one person, whom he will kill
        and cut in two
        with a saw. Then he will say, 'Look at this slave of mine,
        now I will
        resurrect him, but he will still claim that he has a Lord
        other than me.
        Allah will resurrect him, and this evil man (the Dajjal)
        will say to him,
        'Who is your Lord? The man will answer, 'My Lord is Allah,
        and you are the
        enemy of Allah. You are the Dajjal. By Allah, I have never
        been more sure
        of this than I am today."

        Abu Said said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        said, 'That man
        will have the highest status among my Ummah in Paradise."

        Abu Said said, "By Allah, we never thought that that man
        would be any
        other than 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, until he passed away."

        Al-Muharibi said: "Then we referred to the Hadith of Abu
        Rafii, which
        said, 'Part of his Fitnah will be the fact that he will
        pass through an
        area whose people will deny him, and none of their
        livestock will remain
        alive. Then he will pass through a second area whose people
        will believe
        in him; he will order the sky to rain and the earth to
        bring forth crops,
        and their flocks will return from grazing fatter than they
        have ever been,
        with their flanks stretched, their udders full. He will
        pass through every
        place on earth - except Makkah and Madinah, which he will
        never enter, for
        there are angels guarding every gate of them with
        unsheathed swords -
        until he reaches al-Zarib al-Ahmar and camps at the edge of
        the
        salt-marsh. Madinah will be shaken by three tremors, after
        which every
        Munafiq (hypocrite) will leave it, and it will be cleansed
        of evil, as
        iron is cleansed of dross. That day will be called Yawm al-
        Khalas (The Day
        of Purification)."

        Umm Sharik bint Abil-Akr said, "O Messenger of Allah, where
        will the Arabs
        be at that time?" He said, "At that time they will be few;
        most of them
        will be in Bayt al-Maqdis (Jerusalem), and their Imam will
        be a righteous
        man. Whilst their Imam is going forward to lead the people
        in praying
        Salat al-Subh (the morning prayer), Jesus son of Mary will
        descend. The
        Imam will step back, to let Jesus lead the people in
        prayer, but Jesus
        will place his hand between the mans shoulders and say, 'Go
        forward and
        lead the prayer, for the Iqamah was made for you. So the
        Imam will lead
        the people in prayer, and afterwards Jesus (alayhe salam)
        will say, 'Open
        the gate. The gate will be opened, and behind it will be
        the Dajjal and a
        thousand Jews, each of them bearing a sword and shield.
        When the Dajjal
        sees Jesus, he will begin to dissolve like salt in water,
        and will run
        away.

        Jesus will say, 'You will remain alive until I strike you
        with my sword.
        He will catch up with him at the eastern gate of Ludd* and
        will kill him.
        The Jews will be deflated with the help of Allah. There
        will be no place
        for them to hide; they will not be able to hide behind any
        stone, wall,
        animal or tree - except the boxthorn (al-Gharqarah) -
        without saying, 'O
        Muslim servant of Allah! here is a Jew, come and kill him!"
        The Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "The time of the Dajjal
        will be forty
        years; one year like half a year, one year like a month,
        and one month
        like a week. The rest of his days will pass so quickly that
        if one of you
        were at one of the gates of Madinah, he would not reach the
        other gate
        before evening fell."

        Someone asked, "O Messenger of Allah, how will we pray in
        those shorter
        days?" He said, "Work out the times of prayer in the same
        way that you do
        in these longer days, and then pray." The Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "Jesus son of Mary will be a just
        administrator and leader
        of my Ummah. He will break the cross, kill the pigs, and
        abolish the
        Jizyah (tax on non-Muslims). He will not collect the
        Sadaqah,* so he will
        not collect sheep and camels. Mutual enmity and hatred will
        disappear.
        Every harmful animal will be made harmless, so that a small
        boy will be
        able to put his hand into a snakes mouth without being
        harmed, a small
        girl will be able to make a lion run away from her, and a
        wolf will go
        among sheep as if he were a sheepdog. The earth will be
        filled with peace
        as a container is filled with water. People will be in
        complete agreement,
        and only Allah will be worshipped. Wars will cease, and the
        authority of
        Quraysh will be taken away. The earth will be like a silver
        basin, and
        will produce fruits so abundantly that a group of people
        will gather to
        eat a bunch of grapes or one pomegranate and will be
        satisfied. A bull
        will be worth so much money, but a horse will be worth only
        a few
        dirhams."

        Someone asked, "O Messenger of Allah, why will a horse be
        so cheap?" He
        said, "Because it will never be ridden in war." He was
        asked, "Why will
        the bull be so expensive?" He said, "Because it will plough
        the earth. For
        three years before the Dajjal emerges, the people will
        suffer severe
        hunger. In the first year, Allah will order the sky to
        withhold a third of
        its rain, and the earth to withhold two-thirds of its
        fruits. In the third
        year, He will order the sky to withhold all of its rain,
        and the earth to
        withhold all of its fruits, so that nothing green will
        grow. Every
        cloven-hoofed creature will die except for whatever Allah
        wills." Someone
        asked, "How will the people live at that time?" He
        said, "By saying La
        ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, Subhan Allah and Al-Hamdu-
        lillah. This
        will be like food for them."

        The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "The Dajjal
        will come
        forth, and one of the Believers will go towards him. The
        armed men of the
        Dajjal will ask him, 'Where are you going? He will say, 'I
        am going to
        this one who has come forth. They will say, 'Kill him! Then
        some of them
        will say to the others, 'Hasnt your lord [ie the Dajjal]
        forbidden you to
        kill anyone without his permission?" So they will take him
        to the Dajjal,
        and when the Believer sees him, he will say, 'O People,
        this is the Dajjal
        whom the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) told us
        about. Then the
        Dajjal will order them to seize him and wound him in the
        head; they will
        inflict blows all over, even in his back and stomach. The
        Dajjal will ask
        him, 'Dont you believe in me? He will say, 'You are a false
        Messiah. The
        Dajjal will order that he be sawn in two from the parting
        of his hair to
        his legs; then he will walk between the two pieces. Then he
        will say
        'Stand! and the man will stand up. The Dajjal will say to
        him, 'Dont you
        believe in me? The believer will say, 'It has only
        increased my
        understanding that you are the Dajjal. Then he will say, 'O
        people! he
        will not treat anyone else in such a manner after me. The
        Dajjal will
        seize him to slaughter him, but the space between his neck
        and collar-bone
        will be turned into copper, and the Dajjal will not be able
        to do anything
        to him. He will take the man by his arms and legs and throw
        him away; the
        people will believe that he has been thrown into Hell,
        whereas in fact he
        will have been thrown into Paradise." The Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "He will be the greatest of martyrs in the
        sight of Allah,
        the Lord of the Worlds." (Muslim).

        THE HADITH OF AL-MUGHIRAH IBN SHU'BAH

        Al-Mughirah ibn Shubah said, "No-one asked the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) more questions about the Dajjal than I did. He
        said, 'You
        should not worry about him, because he will not be able to
        harm you. I
        said, 'But they say that he will have much food and water!
        He said, 'He is
        too insignificant in the sight of Allah to have all that."
        (Muslim.)

        Al-Mughirah ibn Shu'bah said, "No-one asked the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) more questions about the Dajjal than I did." One
        of the
        narrators said, "What did you ask him?" Al-Mughirah
        said, "I said, 'They
        say that the Dajjal will have a mountain of bread and meat,
        and a river of
        water. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, 'He
        is too
        insignificant in the sight of Allah to have all that."
        (Muslim.)

        >From these Ahadith, we can see that Allah will test His
        servants with the
        Dajjal and by the miracles which he will be permitted to
        perform: as we
        have already mentioned, the Dajjal will order the sky to
        rain for those
        who accept him, and will order the earth to bring forth its
        fruits so that
        they and their livestock will eat of it, and their flocks
        will return fat
        and with their udders full of milk. Those who reject the
        Dajjal and refuse
        to believe in him will suffer drought and famine; people
        and livestock
        will die, and wealth and supplies of food will be depleted.
        People will
        follow the Dajjal like swarms of bees, and he will kill a
        young man and
        bring him back to life.

        This is not a kind of magic; it will be something real with
        which Allah
        will test His servants at the end of time. Many will be led
        astray, and
        many will be guided by it. Those who doubt will disbelieve,
        but those who
        believe will be strengthened in their faith.

        Al-Qadi 'Iyad and others interpreted the phrase "He is too
        insignificant
        in the sight of Allah to have all that" as meaning that the
        Dajjal is too
        insignificant to have anything that could lead the true
        believers astray,
        because he is obviously evil and corrupt. Even if he brings
        great terror,
        the word Kafir will be clearly written between his eyes;
        one report
        explains that it will be written "Kaf, Fa, Ra," from which
        we can
        understand that it will be written perceptibly, not
        abstractly, as some
        people say.

        One of his eyes will be blind, protruding and repulsive;
        this is the
        meaning of the Hadith: "...as if it were a grape floating
        on the surface
        of the water." Other reports say that it is "dull, with no
        light in it,"
        or "like white spittle on a wall," i e, it will look ugly.

        Some reports say that it is his right eye which will be
        blind; others say
        that it is his left eye.

        He could be partly blind in both eyes, or there could be a
        fault in both
        eyes. This interpretation could be supported by the Hadith
        narrated by
        al-Tabarani, in which he reports that Ibn 'Abbas said, "The
        Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "The Dajjal is curly-
        haired and
        white-skinned. His head is like the branch of a tree; his
        left eye is
        blind, and the other eye looks like a floating grape. "

        One may ask: if the Dajjal is going to cause such
        widespread evil and his
        claim to be a"lord" will be so widely believed - even
        though he is
        obviously a liar, and all the Prophets have warned against
        him - why does
        the Quran not mention him by name and warn us against his
        lies and
        stubbornness?

        The answer is:-

        1. The Dajjal was referred to in the Ayah:

        "... The day that certain of the signs of thy Lord do come,
        no good will
        it do to a soul to believe in them then, if it believed not
        before nor
        earned righteousness through its Faith..." (al-Anam 6:158)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'There
        are three things which, when they appear, no good will it
        do a soul to
        believe in them then, if it believed not before nor earned
        righteousness
        through its Faith. They are: The Dajjal, the Beast, and the
        rising of the
        sun from the west."

        2. Jesus son of Mary will descend from Heaven and kill the
        Dajjal, as we
        have already mentioned. The descent of Jesus is mentioned
        in the Ayat:

        "That they said (in boast), 'We killed Christ Jesus the son
        of Mary, the
        Apostle of Allah; - but they killed him not nor crucified
        him, but so it
        was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein
        are full of
        doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to
        follow, for of
        a surety they killed him not:-

        Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is exalted
        in Power,
        Wise;-

        And there is none of the People of the Book but must
        believe in him before
        his death; and on the Day of Judgment, he will be a witness
        against them."
        (al-Nisa 4:157-9)

        We think that the Tafsir (interpretation) of this Ayah is
        that the pronoun
        in "before his death" (qabla mawtihi) refers to Jesus; i e,
        he will
        descend and the People of the Book who differed concerning
        him will
        believe in him. The Christians claimed that he was divine,
        while the Jews
        made a slanderous accusation, i e that he was born from
        adultery. When
        Jesus descends before the Day of Judgment, he will correct
        all these
        differences and lies.

        On this basis, the reference to the descent of the Messiah
        Jesus son of
        Mary also includes a reference to the Dajjal (false Mesor
        Antichrist), who
        is the opposite of the true Messiah, because sometimes the
        Arabs refer to
        one of two opposites and not the other, but mean both.

        3. The Dajjal is not mentioned by name in the Quran because
        he is so
        insignificant: he claims to be divine, but he is merely a
        human being. His
        affairs are too contemptible to be mentioned in the Quran.
        But the
        Prophets, out of loyalty to Allah, warned their people
        about the Dajjal
        and the tribulations and misguiding miracles he would
        bring. It is enough
        for us to know the reports of the Prophets and the many
        reports from the
        Prophet Mohammad (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam).

        One could argue that Allah has mentioned Pharaoh and his
        false claims,
        such as "I am your Lord, Most High" (al-Naziat 79:24)
        and "O Chiefs! No
        god do I know for you but myself ..." (al-Qasas 28:38), in
        the Quran. This
        can be explained by the fact that Pharaoh and his deeds are
        in the past,
        and his lies are clear to every believer. But the Dajjal is
        yet to come,
        in the future; it will be a Fitnah and a test for all
        people. So the
        Dajjal is not mentioned in the Qur'an because he is
        contemptible; and the
        fact that he is not mentioned means that it will be a great
        test.

        The facts about the Dajjal and his lies are obvious and do
        not need
        further emphasis. This is often the case when something is
        very clear. For
        example, when the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) was
        terminally
        ill, he wanted to write a document confirming that Abu Bakr
        would be the
        Khalifah after him. Then he abandoned this idea, and
        said, "Allah and the
        believers will not accept anyone other than Abu Bakr." He
        decided not to
        write the document because he knew of Abu Bakr's high
        standing among the
        Sahabah (Companions) and was sure that they would not
        choose anyone else.
        Similarly, the facts about the Dajjal are so clear that
        they did not need
        to be mentioned in the Qur'an.

        Allah did not mention the Dajjal in the Quran because He
        (subhanahu wa
        ta'ala) knew that the Dajjal would not be able to lead His
        true servants
        astray; he would only increase their faith, their
        submission to Allah and
        His Messenger, their belief in the Truth, and their
        rejection of
        falsehood. For this reason the believer whom the Dajjal
        overpowers will
        say, when he revives him, "By Allah, it has only increased
        my
        understanding that you are the one-eyed liar about whom the
        Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) spoke."

        MORE AHADITH ABOUT THE DAJJAL

        The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "The Dajjal
        will emerge in
        a land in the east called Khurasan. His followers will be
        people with
        faces like hammered shields."

        Asma' bint Yazid al-Ansariyyah said, "The Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'During the three years just before the
        Dajjal comes, there
        will be one year when the sky will withhold one third of
        its rain and the
        earth one-third of its fruits. In the second year the sky
        will withhold
        two-thirds of its rain, and the earth two-thirds of its
        fruits. In the
        third year the sky will withhold all of its rain, and the
        earth all of its
        fruits, and all the animals will die. It will be the
        greatest tribulation:
        the Dajjal will bring a Bedouin and say to him, "What if I
        bring your
        camels to life for you? Will you agree that I am your
        lord?" The Bedouin
        will say "Yes." So devils will assume the forms of his
        camels, with the
        fullest udders and the highest humps. Then he will bring a
        man whose
        father and brother have died, and will ask him, "What do
        you think if I
        bring your father and brother back to life? Will you agree
        that I am your
        lord?" The man will say "Yes," so the devils will assume
        the forms of his
        father and brother. Then the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) went
        out for something, and then returned. The people were very
        concerned about
        what he had told them. He stood in the doorway and
        asked, 'What is wrong,
        Asma'? I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, you have terrified us
        with what you
        said about the Dajjal. He said, 'He will certainly appear.
        If I am still
        alive, I will contend with him on your behalf; otherwise
        Allah will take
        care of every Muslim on my behalf. I said, 'O Messenger of
        Allah, we do
        not bake our dough until we are hungry, so how will it be
        for the
        believers at that time? The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        'The glorification of Allah which suffices the people of
        Heaven will be
        sufficient for them."

        Abu Hurairah (radiallahu anhu) said, "The Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'The Hour will not come until the Muslims
        fight the Jews and
        kill them. When a Jew hides behind a rock or a tree, it
        will say, "O
        Muslim, O servant of Allah! There is a Jew behind me, come
        and kill him!"
        All the trees will do this except the box-thorn (al-
        Gharqad), because it
        is the tree of the Jews." (Ahmad.)

        PROTECTION AGAINST THE DAJJAL

        1. Seeking refuge with Allah from his tribulation.

        It is proven in the Sahih (authentic) Ahadith that the
        Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) used to seek refuge with Allah from the
        tribulation of
        the Dajjal in his prayers, and that he commanded his Ummah
        to do likewise:

        Allahumma inna naudhu bika min 'adhabi jahannam, wa
        min 'adhabi 'l-qabr,
        wa min fitnati 'l-mahya'i wa'l-mamat, wa min fitnati' l-
        masihi 'd-dajjal."

        "O Allah! We seek refuge with You from the punishment of
        Hell, from the
        punishment of the grave, from the tribulations of life and
        death, and from
        the tribulation of the False Messiah (Dajjal)." This Hadith
        was narrated
        by many Sahabah, including Anas. Abu Hurairah, 'A'ishah,
        Ibn 'Abbas, and
        Sa'd.

        2. Memorising certain Ayat from Surat al-Kahf.

        Al-Hafiz al-Dhahabi said, "Seeking refuge with Allah from
        the Dajjal is
        mentioned in many Mutawatir Ahadith (those with numerous
        lines of
        narrators). One way of doing this is to memorise ten Ayat
        from Surat
        al-Kahf."

        Abul-Dira reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        "Whoever memorises the first ten Ayat of Surat al-Kahf will
        be protected
        from the Dajjal." (Abu Dawud.)

        3. Keeping away from the Dajjal

        One way to be protected from the tribulation of the Dajjal
        is to live in
        Madinah or Makkah.

        Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) said,
        "There are angels standing at the gates of Madinah; neither
        plague nor the
        Dajjal can enter it." (Bukhari, Muslim.)

        Abu Bakr reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        "The terror caused by the Dajjal will not enter Madinah. At
        that time it
        will have seven gates; there will be two angels guarding
        every gate."
        (Bukhari.)

        Anas said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        said, 'The Dajjal
        will come to Madinah, and he will find angles guarding it.
        Neither plague
        nor the Dajjal will enter it, in sha Allah." (Tirmidhi,
        Bukhari.)

        It has been proven in the Sahih Ahadith that the Dajjal
        will not enter
        Makkah or Madinah, because the angels will prevent him from
        entering these
        two places which are sanctuaries and are safe from him.
        When he camps at
        the salt-marsh (Sabkhah) of Madinah, it will be shaken by
        three tremors -
        either physically or metaphorically - and every hypocrite
        will go out to
        join the Dajjal. On that day, Madinah will be cleansed of
        its dross and
        will be refined and purified; and Allah knows best.

        THE LIFE AND DEEDS OF THE DAJJAL

        The Dajjal will be a man, created by Allah to be a test for
        people at the
        end of time. Many will be led astray through him, and many
        will be guided
        through him; only the sinful will be led astray.

        Al-Hafiz Ibn 'Ali al-Abar wrote in his book of history (al-
        Tarikh) that
        the Dajjal's Kunyah (nickname or paternal title) would be
        Abu Yusuf.

        Abu Bakrah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        said, "The
        Dajjal's parents will remain childless for thirty years,
        then a one-eyed
        child will be born to them. He will be very bad and will
        cause a great
        deal of trouble. When he sleeps, his eyes will be closed
        but his heart (or
        mind) will still be active. Then he described his
        parents: 'His father
        will be a tall and bulky man, with a long nose like a beak;
        his mother
        will be a huge, heavy-breasted woman."

        Abu Bakrah said, "We heard that a child had been born to
        some of the Jews
        in Madinah. Al-Zubayr ibn al-Awam and I went see his pa,
        and found that
        they matched the description given by the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam). We saw the boy lying in the sun, covered with a
        blanket,
        murmuring to himself. We asked his parents about him, and
        they said, 'We
        remained childless for thirty years, then this one-eyed boy
        was born to
        us. He is very bad and causes a great deal of trouble. When
        we went out,
        we passed the boy. He asked us, 'What were you doing?.We
        said, 'Did you
        hear us?. He said, 'Yes; when I sleep, my eyes are closed
        but my heart
        (mind) is still active. That boy was Ibn Sayyad." (Ahmad,
        Tirmidhi; this
        Hadith is not very strong.)

        As we have already seen in the Sahih Ahadith, Malik and
        others think that
        Ibn Sayyad was not the Dajjal; he was one of a number
        of "lesser dajjals."
        Later he repented and embraced Islam; Allah knows best his
        heart and
        deeds.

        The "greater" Dajjal is the one mentioned in the Hadith of
        Fatimah bint
        Qays, which she narrated from the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam),
        from Tamim al-Dari, and which includes the story of the
        Jassasah. The
        Dajjal will be permitted to appear at the end of time,
        after the Muslims
        have conquered a Roman city called Constantinople. He will
        first appear in
        Isfahan, in an area known as the Jewish quarter (al-
        Yahudiyyah). He will
        be followed by seventy thousand Jews from that area, all of
        them armed.
        Seventy thousand Tatars and many people from Khurasan will
        also follow
        him. At first he will appear as a tyrannical king, then he
        will claim to
        be a prophet, then a lord. Only the most ignorant of men
        will follow him;
        the righteous and those guided by Allah will reject him.

        He will start to conquer the world country by country,
        fortress by
        fortress, region by region, town by town; no place will
        remain unscathed
        except Makkah and Madinah. The length of his stay on earth
        will be forty
        days: one day like a year, one day like a month, one day
        like a week, and
        the rest of the days like normal days, i e his stay will be
        approximately
        one year and two and a half months. Allah will grant him
        many miracles,
        through which whoever He wills will be astray, and the
        faith of the
        believers will be strengthened. The descent of Jesus son of
        Mary, the true
        Messiah, will happen at the time of the Dajjal, the false
        messiah. He will
        descend to the minaret in the east of Damascus. The
        believers and true
        servants of Allah will gather to support him, and the
        Messiah Jesus son of
        Mary will lead them against the Dajjal, who at that time
        will be heading
        for Bayt al-Maqdis (Jerusalem). He will catch up with him
        at 'Aqabah
        'Afiq. The Dajjal will run away from him, but Jesus will
        catch up with him
        at the gate of Ludd, and will kill him with his spear just
        as he is
        entering it. He will say to him, "I have to deal you a
        blow; you cannot
        escape."

        When the Dajjal faces him, he will begin to dissolve like
        salt in water.
        So Jesus will kill him with his spear at the gate of Ludd,
        and he will die
        there, as many Sahih Ahadith indicate.

        Majma ibn Jariyah is reported to have said, "I heard the
        Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) saying, 'The son of Mary will
        kill the
        Dajjal at the gate of Ludd." (Tirmidhi.)

        FOOTNOTE:

        "When he (Dajjal) sleeps, his eyes will be closed but his
        heart (or mind)
        will still be active" - means that his evil ideas will
        still come to him
        even while he is asleep.




        The descent of Jesus at the end of time
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        Abd Allah ibn 'Amr said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        'The Dajjal will appear in my Ummah, and will remain for
        forty - "I cannot
        say whether he meant forty days, forty months or forty
        years." Then Allah
        will send Jesus (alayhe salam), the son of Mary, who will
        resemble 'Urwah
        ibn Mas'ud. He will chase the Dajjal and kill him. Then the
        people will
        live for seven years during which there will be no enmity
        between any two
        persons. Then Allah will send a cold wind from the
        direction of Syria,
        which will take the soul of everyone who has the slightest
        speck of good
        or faith in his heart. Even if one of you were to enter the
        heart of a
        mountain, the wind would reach him there and take his soul.

        "Only the most wicked people will be left; they will be as
        careless as
        birds, with the characteristics of beasts, and will have no
        concern for
        right and wrong. Satan will come to them in the form of man
        and will say,
        "Don't you respond?" They will say, "What do you order us
        to do?" He will
        order them to worship idols, and in spite of that they will
        have
        sustenance in abundance, and lead comfortable lives.

        "Then the Trumpet will be blown, and everyone will tilt
        their heads to
        hear it. The first one to hear it will be a man busy
        repairing a trough
        for his camels. He and everyone else will be struck down.
        Then Allah will
        send (or send down) rain like dew, and the bodies of the
        people (ie the
        dead) will grow out of it. Then the trumpet will be sounded
        again, and the
        people will get up and look around. Then it will be
        said, "O people, go to
        your Lord and account for yourselves." It will be
        said, "Bring out the
        people of Hell," and it will be asked, "How many are
        there?" - the answer
        will come: "Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of every
        thousand." On that
        day a child will grow old and the shin will be laid bare."
        (Al-Qalam
        68:42) (Muslim)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'The
        son of Mary will come down as a just leader. He will break
        the cross, and
        kill the pigs. Peace will prevail and people will use their
        swords as
        sickles. Every harmful beast will be made harmless; the sky
        will send down
        rain in abundance, and the earth will bring forth its
        blessings. A child
        will play with a fox and not come to any harm; a wolf will
        graze with
        sheep and a lion with cattle, without harming them."
        (Ahmad)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'By
        Him in Whose hand is my soul, surely the son of Mary will
        come down among
        you as a just ruler. He will break the cross, kill the pigs
        and abolish
        the Jizyah. Wealth will be in such abundance that no-one
        will care about
        it, and a single prostration in prayer will be better than
        the world and
        all that is in it." Abu Hurairah said, 'If you wish, recite
        the Ayah:

        "And there is none of the People of the Book but must
        believe in him
        before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a
        witness against
        them ..." (Al-Nisa 4:159) (Bukhari, Muslim)

        Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) said,
        "The Prophets are like brothers; they have different
        mothers but their
        religion is one.Iam the closest of all the people to Jesus
        son of Mary,
        because there is no other Prophet between him and myself.
        He will come
        again, and when you see him, you will recognise him. He is
        of medium
        height and his colouring is reddish-white. He will be
        wearing two
        garments, and his hair will look wet. He will break the
        cross, kill the
        pigs, abolish the Jizyah and call the people to Islam.
        During his time,
        Allah will end every religion and sect other than Islam,
        and will destroy
        the Dajjal. Then peace and security will prevail on earth,
        so that lions
        will graze with camels, tigers with cattle, and wolves with
        sheep;
        children will be able to play with snakes without coming to
        any harm.
        Jesus will remain for forty years, then die, and the
        Muslims will pray for
        him." (Ahmad)

        Ibn Masud reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        "On the night of the Isra (night journey), I met my father
        Abraham, Moses
        and Jesus, and they discussed the Hour. The matter was
        referred first to
        Abraham, then to Moses, and both said, 'I have no knowledge
        of it. Then it
        was referred to Jesus, who said, 'No-one knows about its
        timing except
        Allah; what my Lord told me was that the Dajjal will
        appear, and when he
        sees me he will begin to melt like lead. Allah will destroy
        him when he
        sees me. The Muslims will fight against the Kafirs, and
        even the trees and
        rocks will say, "O Muslim, there is a Kafir hiding beneath
        me - come and
        kill him!" Allah will destroy the Kafirs, and the people
        will return to
        their own lands. Then Gog and Magog will appear from all
        directions,
        eating and drinking everything they find. The people will
        complain to me,
        so I will pray to Allah and He will destroy them, so that
        the earth will
        be filled with their stench. Allah will send rain which
        will wash their
        bodies into the sea. My Lord has told me that when that
        happens, the Hour
        will be very close, like a pregnant woman whose time is
        due, but her
        family do not know exactly when she will deliver'" (Ahma,
        Ibn Majah)

        DESCRIPTION OF THE MESSIAH JESUS SON OF MARY, MESSENGER OF
        ALLAH

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'On
        the night of the Isra' (miraculous journey to Jerusalem) I
        met Moses - he
        was a slim man with wavy hair, and looked like a man from
        the Shanu'ah
        tribe. I also met Jesus - he was of medium height and of a
        red complexion,
        as if he had just come out of the bath'" (Bukhari, Muslim)

        The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "Whilst I
        was asleep, I
        saw myself (in a dream) making Tawaf around the Ka'bah. I
        saw a
        brown-skinned man, with straight hair, being supported by
        two men, and
        with water dripping from his head. I said, 'Who is this?'
        They said, 'The
        son of Mary'I turned around and saw a fat, ruddy man, with
        curly hair, who
        was blind in his right eye; his eye looked like a floating
        grape. I asked,
        'Who is this?' They said, 'The Dajjal' The one who most
        resembles him is
        Ibn Qatan." Al-Zuhri explained: Ibn Qatan was a man from
        Khuzaah who died
        during the Jahiliyyah (before the coming of Islam).
        (Bukhari)

        THE APPEARANCE OF GOG AND MAGOG

        They (two tribes or peoples) will appear at the time of
        Jesus son of Mary,
        after the Dajjal. Allah will destroy them all in one night,
        in response to
        the supplication of Jesus.

        Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) said,
        "Every day, Gog and Magog are trying to dig a way out
        through the barrier.
        When they begin to see sunlight through it, the one who is
        in charge of
        them says, 'Go back; you can carry on digging tomorrow,'
        and when they
        come back, the barrier is stronger than it was before. This
        will continue
        until their time comes and Allah wishes to send them forth.
        They will dig
        until they begin to see sunlight, then the one who is in
        charge of them
        will say, 'Go back; you can carry on digging tomorrow,
        insha'Allah.' In
        this case he will make an exception by saying insha' Allah,
        thus relating
        the matter to the Will of Allah. They will return on the
        following day,
        and find the hole as they left it. They will carry on
        digging and come out
        against the people. They will drink all the water, and the
        people will
        entrench themselves in their fortresses. Gog and Magog will
        fire their
        arrows into the sky, and they will fall back to earth with
        something like
        blood on them. Gog and Magog will say, 'We have defeated
        the people of
        earth, and overcome the people of heaven. Then Allah will
        send a kind of
        worm in the napes of their necks, and they will be killed
        by it' 'By Him
        in Whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, the beasts of the
        earth will become
        fat.'"

        Gog and Magog are two groups of Turks, descended from
        Yafith (Japheth),
        the father of the Turks, one of the sons of Noah. At the
        time of Abraham
        (alayhe salam), there was a king called Dhu'l-Qarnayn. He
        performed Tawaf
        around the Ka'bah with Abraham (alayhe salam) when he first
        built it; he
        believed and followed him. Dhu'l-Qarnayn was a good man and
        a great king;
        Allah gave him great power and he ruled the east and west.
        He held sway
        over all kings and countries, and travelled far and wide in
        both east and
        west. He travelled eastwards until he reached a pass
        between two
        mountains, through which people were coming out. They did
        not understand
        anything, because they were so isolated; they were Gog and
        Magog. They
        were spreading corruption through the earth, and harming
        the people, so
        the people sought help from Dhu'l-Qarnayn. They asked him
        to build a
        barrier between them and Gog and Magog. He asked them to
        help him to build
        it, so together they built a barrier by mixing iron, copper
        and tar.

        Thus Dhu' -Qarnayn restrained Gog and Magog behind the
        barrier. They tried
        to penetrate the barrier, or to climb over it, but to no
        avail. They could
        not succeed because the barrier is so huge and smooth. They
        began to dig,
        and they have been digging for centuries; they will
        continue to do so
        until the time when Allah decrees that they come out. At
        that time the
        barrier will collapse, and Gog and Magog will rush out in
        all directions,
        spreading corruption, uprooting plants, killing people.
        When Jesus (AS)
        prays against them, Allah will send a kind of worm in the
        napes of their
        necks, and they will be killed by it.

        THE DESTRUCTION OF THE KA'BAH

        At the end of time, Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn, who will come from
        Abyssinia
        (al-Habash), will destroy the Ka'bah in order to steal its
        treasure and
        Kiswah (cloth covering). The Ka'bah is the ancient building
        which was
        built by Abraham, and whose foundations were laid by Adam.

        As Tafsir (interpretation) of the Ayah "Until the Gog and
        Magog (people)
        are let through (their barrier)'" (al-Anbiya 21:96), it was
        reported from
        Ka'b al-Ahbar that Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn will first emerge at
        the time of
        Jesus, son of Mary. Allah will send Jesus at the head of a
        vanguard of
        between seven and eight hundred. While they are marching
        towards
        Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn, Allah will send a breeze from the
        direction of Yemen,
        which will take the soul of every believer. Only the worst
        of people will
        be left, and they will begin to copulate like animals. Ka'b
        said: "At that
        time, the Hour will be close at hand."

        'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) say, Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia will destroy
        the Ka'bah and
        steal its treasure and Kiswah. It is as if I could see him
        now: he is
        bald-headed and has a distortion in his wrists. He will
        strike the Ka'bah
        with his spade and pick-axe'." (Ahmad)

        It was reported from 'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar that the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) said, "Leave the Abyssinians alone so
        long as they do
        not disturb you, for no-one will recover the treasure of
        the Ka'bah except
        Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn from Abyssinia." (Abu Dawud, in the
        chapter on the
        prohibition of provoking the Abyssinians)

        Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        "It is as if I can see him now: he is black and his legs
        are widely
        spaced. He will destroy the Ka'bah stone by stone." (Ahmad)

        The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, "The Hour
        will not come
        until a man from Qahtan appears and rules the people."
        (Muslim; similar
        Hadith in Bukhari) This man could be Dhu'l-Suwayq, someone
        else, because
        this man comes from Qahtan, while other reports say that
        Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn
        comes from Abyssinia; and Allah knows best.

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'Day
        and night will not come to an end until a freed man called
        Jahjah holds
        sway'" (Ahmad) This could be the name of Dhul-Suwayqatayn
        from Abyssinia;
        and Allah knows best.

        'Umar ibn al-Khattab reported that he heard the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) say: "The people of Makkah will leave, and only
        a few people
        will pass through it. Then it will be resettled and
        rebuilt; then the
        people will leave it again, and no-one will ever return."

        MADINAH WILL REMAIN INHABITED AT THE TIME OF THE DAJJAL

        It has been proven in the Sahih Ahadith, as already stated,
        that the
        Dajjal will not be able to enter Makkah and Madinah, and
        that there will
        be angels at the gates of Makkah to ward him off and
        prevent him from
        entering.

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "Neither the Dajjal nor plague will be able
        to enter
        Madinah." As mentioned above, the Dajjal will camp outside
        Madinah, and it
        will be shaken by three tremors. Every hypocrite and sinner
        will go out to
        join the Dajjal, and every believer and Muslim will stay.
        That day will be
        called the Day of Purification (Yawm al-Khalas). Most of
        those who go out
        to join the Dajjal will be women. As the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "Verily it (Madinah) is good; its evil will
        be eliminated
        and its goodness will be obvious."

        Allah SWT said:

        "Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women
        impure, and
        women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity
        are for women of
        purity'" (Al-Nur 24-26)

        Madinah will remain inhabited during the days of the
        Dajjal, and during
        the time of Jesus son of Mary (AS), until he dies and is
        buried there.
        Then it will be destroyed.

        'Umar ibn al-Khattab said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) say, 'A rider will go around Madinah and say, There
        used to be
        many Muslims here'" (Ahmad)

        FOOTNOTE:

        *Dhu'l-Suwayqatayn: al-Suwayqatayn is the diminutive of al-
        Saqayn (legs);
        his legs are described as being "small" because they are
        thin. Thin legs
        are, in general, a characteristic of the Sudanese and
        people of the Horn
        of Africa.



        The emergence of the beast
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        AMONG the signs of the Hour will be the emergence of a
        beast from the
        earth. It will be very strange in appearance, and extremely
        huge; one
        cannot even imagine what it will look like. It will emerge
        from the earth
        and shake the dust from its head. It will have with it the
        ring of Solomon
        and the rod of Moses. People will be terrified of it and
        will try to run
        away, but they will not be able to escape, because such
        will be the decree
        of Allah. It will destroy the nose of every unbeliever with
        the rod, and
        write the word "Kafir" on his forehead; it will adorn the
        face of every
        believer and write the word "Mu'min" (true believer) on his
        forehead, and
        it will speak to people.

        Allah SWT said:

        "And when the Word is fulfilled against them (the unjust),
        We shall
        produce from the earth a Beast to (face) them: it will
        speak to them,'"
        (al-Naml 27.82)

        Ibn 'Abbas, al-Hasan and Qutadah said that "It will speak
        to them"
        (tukallimuhum) means that it will address them. Ibn Jarir
        suggested that
        it means that the Beast will address them with the
        words "'for that
        mankind did not believe with assurance in Our Sings" (al-
        Naml 27:82 -
        latter part of the Ayah). Ibn Jarir reported this from 'Ali
        and 'Ata' It
        was reported from Ibn 'Abbas that tukallimuhum means that
        the Beast will
        cut them, i e, it will write the word "Kafir" on the
        forehead of the
        unbeliever. It was also reported from Ibn 'Abbas that he
        will both address
        them and cut them; this suggestion incorporates both of the
        previous
        suggestions; and Allah knows best.

        We have already mentioned the Hadith of Hudhayfah ibn
        Usayd, in which the
        Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) is reported to have
        said, "The Hour
        will not come until you see ten signs: the smoke; the
        Dajjal; the Beast;
        the sun rising from the West; the descent of Jesus son of
        Mary; Gog and
        Magog; and three landslides - one in the East, one in the
        West, and one in
        Arabia, at the end of which fire will burst forth from the
        direction of
        Aden (Yemen) and drive people to the place of their final
        assembly."

        Abu Hurairah said: "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        'Hasten to do good deeds before six things happen: the
        rising of the sun
        from the West, the smoke, the Dajjal, the Beast, the
        (death) of one of you
        or general tribulation." (Muslim.)

        Baridah said: "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        took me to a
        place in the desert, near Makkah. It was a dry piece of
        land surrounded by
        sand. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, 'The
        Beast will
        emerge from this place. It was a very small area." (Ibn
        Majah.)

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "The Beast of the Earth will emerge, and will
        have with it
        the rod of Moses and the ring of Solomon." It was also
        reported that he
        said, "(The Beast) will destroy the noses of the
        unbelievers with the
        ring, - so that people seated around one table will begin
        to address one
        another with the words "O Believer!" or "O Unbeliever!" (i
        e, everyone's
        status will become clear). (Ibn Majah.)

        'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr said, "I memorised a Hadith from the
        Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) which I have not forgotten
        since. I heard
        the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) say, 'The first
        of the signs (of
        the Hour) to appear will be the rising of the sun from the
        West and the
        appearance of the Best before the people in the forenoon.
        Whichever of
        these two events happens first, the other will follow
        immediately.'"
        (Muslim). That is to say, these will be the first
        extraordinary signs. The
        Dajjal, the descent of Jesus (alayhe salam), the emergence
        of Gog and
        Magog, are less unusual in that they are all human beings.
        But the
        emergence of the Beast, whose form will be very strange,
        its addressing
        the people and classifying them according to their faith or
        unbelief, is
        something truly extraordinary. This is the first of the
        earthly signs, as
        the rising of the sun from the West is the first of the
        heavenly signs.

        THE RISING OF THE SUN FROM THE WEST

        ALLAH SWT says: "Are they waiting to see if the angels come
        to them, or
        thy Lord (Himself), or certain of the Signs of thy Lord?
        The day that
        certaof thesigns of thy Lord do come, no good will it do to
        a soul to
        believe in them then, if it believed not before nor earned
        righteousness
        through its faith. Say: 'Wait ye: we too are waiting'" (al-
        Anam 6:158.)

        It was reported from Abu Sa'id al-Khudri that the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) explained, "The day that certain of the
        Signs of thy
        Lord do come, no good will it do to a soul to believe in
        them then",
        referring to the rising of the sun from the West. (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, 'The
        Hour will not come until the sun rises from the West. When
        the people see
        it, whoever is living on earth will believe, but that will
        be the time
        when - No good will it do to a soul to believe in them
        then, if it
        believed not before'" (Bukhari.)

        It was also reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) said, "The Hour will not come until the sun
        rises from the
        West. When it rises and the people see it, they will all
        believe. But that
        will be the time when 'No good will it do to a soul to
        believe in them
        then'" (Bukhari.)

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "There are three things which, if they
        appear, 'No good will
        it do to a soul to believe in them then, if it believed not
        before nor
        earned righteousness through its faith' They are: the
        rising of the sun
        from the West, the Dajjal, and the Beast of the Earth."
        (Ahmad, Muslim,
        Tirmidhi.)

        Abu Dharr said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        asked me, 'Do
        you know where the sun goes when it sets? I said, 'I do not
        know'He said,
        'It travels until it prostrates itself beneath the Throne,
        and asks for
        permission to rise again. But a time will come when it will
        be told, 'Go
        back whence you came.' That will be the time when 'No good
        will it do to a
        soul to believe in them then, if it believed not before nor
        earned
        righteousness through its faith'" (Bukhari.)

        'Amr ibn Jarir said, "Three Muslims were sitting with
        Marwan in Madinah,
        and heard him say, whilst talking about the Signs of the
        Hour, that the
        first of them would be the appearance of the Dajjal. The
        three went to
        'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr, and told him what they had heard
        Marwan say
        concerning the Signs. 'Abd Allah said, 'Marwan has not said
        much. I
        memorised a Hadith like that from the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) which I have not forgotten since. I heard the
        Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) say: The first of the signs will be the
        rising of the
        sun from the West, and the emergence of the Beast in the
        forenoon.
        Whichever of the two comes first, the other will follow
        immediately'"

        "The 'Abd Allah, who was widely-read, said, 'I think that
        the first to
        happen will be the rising of the sun from the West. Every
        time it sets, it
        goes beneath the Throne, prostrates itself, and seeks
        permission to rise
        again. A time will come when three times it will seek
        permission and will
        receive no reply, until, when part of the night has passed
        and it realises
        that even if it were given permission, it would not be able
        to rise on
        time, it will say: "O my Lord, how far the rising-point is
        from me! What
        can I do for the people now?" Then it will seek permission
        to go back, and
        it will be told: 'Rise from where you are now' - and it
        will rise from the
        West'" Then 'Abd Allah recited the Ayah:

        "No good will it do to a soul to believe in them then, if
        it believed not
        before nor earned righteousness through its faith."
        (Ahmad.)

        Some scholars interpret "the rising of the sun from the
        West" as meaning
        that Islam will appear in the West, as strong as it was in
        the beginning,
        and that the people of the West will carry the flag of
        Islam.

        THE SMOKE WHICH WILL APPEAR AT THE END OF TIME

        MASRUQ said: "While a man was giving a speech among the
        people of Kindah,
        he said, 'There will be smoke on the Day of Resurrection
        which will
        deprive the hypocrites of their hearing and sight, but the
        believers will
        only suffer something like a cold' We were terrified, so we
        went to Ibn
        Masud, who was reclining. When he heard about this, he
        became angry and
        sat up, and said: 'O people, whoever knows a thing, let him
        say it; but
        whoever does not know, let him say, "Allah knows best." It
        is a part of
        knowledge, when one does not know something, to say "Allah
        knows best."
        Allah SWT said to His Prophet Mohammad (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam):
        "Say: 'No reward do I ask of you for this (Qur'an), nor am
        I a pretender'"
        (Sad 38:86.)

        "Quraysh were being slow in embracing Islam, so the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) prayed against them, saying, 'O Allah,
        help me against
        them by sending seven years of famine like those of
        Joseph.' They were
        afflicted by a year of famine in which they were destroyed,
        and ate dead
        animals and bones. They began to see something like smoke
        between the sky
        and the earth. Abu Sufyan came and said, 'O Mohammad! You
        came to command
        us to keep good relations with our relatives, and your
        people have
        perished, so pray that Allah may relieve them'"

        The Ibn Mas'ud recited,

        "Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth
        a kind of smoke
        (or mist) plainly visible,

        Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.

        (They will say:) 'Our Lord! Remove the Penalty from us, for
        we do truly
        believe!

        How shall the Message be (effectual) for them, seeing that
        an Apostle
        explaining things clearly has (already) come to them?

        Yet they return away from him and say: 'Tutored (by
        others), a man
        possessed!

        We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while, (but) truly
        ye will revert
        (to your ways)." (al-Dukhan 44:10-15)

        Ibn Maud asked: "Will their punishment in the Hereafter be
        removed so they
        can go back to their Kufr?"

        Allah SWT said:

        "One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We
        will indeed (then)
        exact Retribution!"

        (al-Dukhan 44:16)

        "...and soon will come the inevitable (punishment)!" (al-
        Furqan 25:77)

        These Ayat refer to the Day (Battle) of Badr.

        Allah SWT said:

        "Alif-Lam-Mim. The Romans (Byzantines) have been defeated -
        in a land
        close by; but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs,
        will soon be
        victorious - within a few years'"

        (al-Rum 30: 1-3) (Bukhari.)

        This speaker's suggestion - that the idea that the smoke
        would be on the
        Day or Resurrection was not a good one - made Ibn Masud
        react angrily. But
        the smoke will appear before the Day of Resurrection; it
        will be one of
        the signs, which are: the Beast, the Dajjal, the Smoke, and
        Gog and Magog,
        as the Ahadith narrated from Abu Sarihah, Abu Hurairah and
        other Sahabah
        indicate.

        As mentioned in the Sahih Ahadith, the fire which will
        appear before the
        Day of Resurrection will burst forth from the direction of
        Aden, and drive
        the people to the place of their final assembly. It will
        move with them
        and halt with them, and will devour any who lag behind.



        The Hour will not come until...
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        IT was reported from Abu Sa'id al-Khudri that the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) said, "Thunderbolts will increase so much
        as the Hour
        approaches that when a man comes to a people, he will
        ask, 'Who amongst
        you was struck by a thunderbolt this morning?' and they
        will say,
        'So-and-so and so-and-so was struck'." (Ahmad)

        Heavy rain before the Day of Resurrection.

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "The hour will not come until there has been
        rain which will
        destroy all dwellings except tents."

        We have already mentioned many Ahadith about the signs of
        the Hour. Now we
        will turn our attention to some Ahadith which could
        indicate that the Hour
        is close at hand.

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said: "The Hour will not come until the following
        events have come
        to pass: people will compete with one another in
        constructing high
        buildings; two big groups will fight one another, and there
        will be many
        casualties - they will both be following the same religious
        teaching;
        earthquakes will increase; time will pass quickly;
        afflictions and killing
        will increase; nearly thirty dajjals will appear, each of
        them claiming to
        be a messenger from Allah; a man will pass by a grave and
        say, 'Would that
        I were in your place'; the sun will rise from the West;
        when it rises and
        the people see it, they will all believe, but that will be
        the time when
        'No good will it do to a soul to believe in them then, if
        it believed not
        before' (al-An'am 6:158); and a wealthy man will worry lest
        no-one accept
        his Zakat." (Bukhari, Muslim).

        It was reported from Anas that the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam)
        said: "Among the signs of the Hour are the following:
        knowledge will
        decrease and ignorance will prevail; fornication and the
        drinking of wine
        will be common; the number of men will decrease and the
        number of women
        will increase, until one man will look after fifty women."
        (Bukhari.)

        'A'ishah said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) say,
        'Day and night will not pass away until people begin to
        worship Lat and
        'Uzza' (two goddesses of pre-Islamic Arabic). I said, 'O
        Messenger of
        Allah, I thought that when Allah revealed the Ayah "It is
        He Who has sent
        His Apostle with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to
        proclaim over all
        religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it)" (al-
        Tawbah 9:33), it
        implied that (this promise) would be fulfilled'. The
        Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) said, 'It will happen as Allah wishes.
        Then Allah will
        send a pleasant breeze, which will take everyone who has as
        much faith as
        a grain of mustard-seed in his heart. Only those with no
        goodness in them
        will be left, and they will revert to the religion of their
        forefathers'."
        (Muslim)

        It was from Abu Hurairah that one day, while the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) was sitting with the people, a Bedouin
        came to him and
        asked him about Iman and Islam ' then he asked, "O
        Messenger of Allah,
        when will the Hour be?" He said, "The one who is asked
        about it does not
        know more than the one who asks, but I tell you about its
        signs. When a
        slave gives birth to her mistress, and when the bare-footed
        and naked
        become the chiefs of the people - these are among the signs
        of the Hour.
        There are five things which no-one knows except Allah."
        Then he recited:

        "Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with God (alone). It
        is He Who sends
        down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does
        anyone know
        what it is that he will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone
        know in what
        land he is to die. Verily God is All-Knowing, All Aware."
        (Luqman 31:34).

        Then the man went away, and the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam)
        said, "Call him back to me," but when the people went to
        call him, they
        could not see anything. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        "That was Gabriel, who came to teach the people their
        religion." (Bukhari,
        Muslim).

        "The bare-footed and naked paupers will compete with one
        another in
        constructing high buildings" means that they will become
        the chiefs of
        people. They will become rich, and their only concern will
        be to compete
        in constructing high buildings. This is as in the Hadith we
        shall see
        later: "The Hour will not come until the happiest people in
        the world will
        be the depraved sons of the depraved."

        It was reported from Abu Sa'id that the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) said: "The Hour will not come until the time when a
        man will leave
        his home, and his shoes or whip or stick will tell what is
        happening to
        his family." (Ahmad).

        It was reported from Abu Sa'id that the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) said: "By Him in Whose hand is my soul, the Hour
        will not come
        until wild animals talk to men, and a man speaks to his
        whip or his shoe,
        and his thigh will tell him about what happened to his
        family after he
        left."

        Anas said, "We were discussing the fact that the Hour would
        not come until
        there is no rain, the earth does not produce crops, and
        fifty women will
        be cared for by one man; and if a woman passes by a man, he
        will look at
        her and say, 'This woman once had a husband'." (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurairah said: "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said: 'The
        Hour will not come until time passes so quickly that a year
        will be like a
        month, a month like a week, a week like a day, a day like
        an hour, and an
        hour like the time it takes for a palm-leaf to burn'."
        (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said: 'The
        world will not pass away until the one who enjoys it the
        most is the
        depraved son of the depraved'." (Ahmad.)

        Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said,
        'Before the Hour comes, there will be years of deceit, in
        which a truthful
        person will be disbelieved and a liar will be believed; and
        the
        insignificant will have a say'." (Ahmad)

        Abu Hurairah said: "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe
        wa sallam) say:
        'The Hour will not come until the sheep with horns no
        longer fights the
        sheep without horns'." (Ahmad.)

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "The Hour will not come until wealth
        increases so much that
        a wealthy man will be worried lest no-one accept his
        Sadaqah: tribulations
        will appear; and there will be much Harj." The people
        asked, "What is
        Harj", O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Killing, killing"
        (Ahmad.)

        It was reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) said, "By Him Who sent me with the Truth, this
        earth will not pass
        away until people are afflicted with landslides, are pelted
        with stones,
        and are transformed into animals." The people asked, "When
        will that be, O
        Messenger of Allah?" He said, "When you see women riding in
        the saddle,
        when singers are common, when bearing false witness becomes
        widespread,
        and when men lie with men and women with women".

        Tariq ibn Shihab said, "We were sitting with 'Abd Allah ibn
        Mas'ud, when a
        man came and told us that the time for prayer had come. So
        we got up and
        went to the mosque. After the prayer, a man came to 'Abd
        Allah ibn Mas'ud
        and said, 'As-salam 'alayka (Peace be upon you), O Abu 'Abd
        al-Rahman'.
        'Abd Allah answered, 'Allah and His Messenger have spoken
        the truth'. When
        we went back, we asked one another, 'Did you hear the
        answer he gave? Who
        is going to ask him about it? I said, 'I will ask him'; so
        I asked him
        when he came out. He narrated from the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam): 'Before the Hour comes, there will be a special
        greeting for the
        people of distinction; trade will become so widespread that
        a woman will
        help her husband in business; family ties will be cut; the
        giving of false
        witness will be common, while truthful witness will be
        rare; and writing
        will be widespread." (Ahmad.)

        DESCRIPTION OF THE PEOPLE WHO

        WILL BE ALIVE AT THE END OF TIME

        It was reported from 'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr that the Prophet
        (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam) said, "The Hour will not come until Allah
        takes away the
        best people on earth; only the worst people will be left;
        they will not
        know any good or forbid any evil." (Ahmad.)

        'Abd Allah ibn Mas'ud said, "I heard the Prophet
        (sallallahu alayhe wa
        sallam) say: Eloquence can be bewitching; the worst of the
        people are
        those upon whom the Hour will come while they are still
        alive, and those
        who turn graves into mosques'." (Ahmad.)

        It was reported from Anas that the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam)
        said, "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth
        says 'La ilaha illa
        Allah'." (Ahmad.)

        It was also reported from Anas that the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa
        sallam) said: "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth
        says, 'Allah,
        Allah'." (Ahmad.)

        There are two suggestions as to the meaning of the
        phrase, "until no-one
        on earth says 'Allah, Allah'":

        1. It could mean that no-one will forbid evil, or try to
        correct another
        if he sees him doing something wrong. We have already come
        across this in
        the Hadith of 'Abd Allah ibn 'Amr: "Only the worst people
        will be left;
        they will not know any good or forbid any evil."

        2. It could mean that Allah will no longer be mentioned,
        and His Name will
        not be known; this will be part of the prevalent corruption
        and Kufr, as
        in the previous Hadith, "Until no-one on earth says 'La
        ilaha illa
        Allah'."

        'A'ishah said. "The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam)
        came in, saying
        'O 'A'ishah, your people will be the first of my Ummah to
        join me. When he
        sat down, I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, may I be
        sacrificed for you! When
        you came in, you were saying something which scared me. He
        asked, 'What
        was that?' I said, 'You said that my people would be the
        first of your
        Ummah to join you.' He said, 'Yes' I asked, 'Why is that?
        He said, 'Death
        will be widespread among them, and their relatives will be
        jealous of
        them.'I said, 'How will people be after that?' He
        said, 'Like locusts: the
        strong will devour the weak, until the Hour comes.'"
        (Ahmad.)

        'Alba'al-Salami said, "I heard the Prophet (sallallahu
        alayhe wa sallam)
        say: 'The Hour will only come upon the worst of the
        people'." (Ahmad.)

          -----------------------------------------------
          Minor Signs of Qiyamat
          Anas ibn Malik (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports: "When you
          see seventy-two signs
          of Qiyamat, know that the last hour is near. They are:

          * Leaders and officials will be self-motivated,
          * The mystics (Sufis) would be immersed in dark
          practices, * The Qurra would be sinners,
          * When people would wear leather clothing, their
          hearts will be more pungent
          than excreta,
          * Only the exercising of patience (not alternate
          strategy) will be able to
          overcome corruptions (i.e. there will be support for
          the truth),
          * People would deliberately involve themselves in
          dangerous sports and activities like the Jews,
          * Gold will be displayed openly,
          * There will be a demand for silver,
          * Many lecturers and sermonises will appear, *
          Commanding of the good will be forgotten, * Qur'ans
          would be decorated,
          * The Masajid would be adorned and embellished, *
          Pulpits would be constructed higher,
          * Hearts would be bereft of light,
          * Liquor and intoxicants would be consumed,
          * The Islamic punishments (hudud) w
          ill not be
          enforced,
          * The slave-girl would give birth to her master (i.e.
          orders would be disobeyed, or juniors would start
          influencing their seniors),
          * Shameless and naked people will become leaders, *
          The wife would join her husband in business,
          * Men would start imitating women,
          * Women would start imitating men,
          * Oaths will be taken in the name other than Allah,
          * A person would give evidence without having asked to
          do so,
          * People would gain mastery over the sciences for
          purposes other than the
          recognition of Allah,
          * Worldly profits will be gained through religious
          enterprises,
          * Leaders would not equally distribute wealth and
          resources, and the rightful recipients will be
          deprived,
          * Trusts will be treated as booty (to be consumed), *
          Zakaat will be regarded as a tax,

          * Mothers would be treated harshly,
          * Friends would be respected,
          * One's wife will be exclusively o
          beyed,
          * The voices of sinners will be elevated in the
          Masajid, * Dancing and music will be rampant,
          * Liquor would be consumed in the streets,
          * Oppressing and cheating people would become a source
          of achievement and
          pride,
          * Police and security will be multiplied,
          * The Qur'an would be recited in singing tones, * The
          skins of wild animals would be laid down,
          * The last portion of this Ummah would curse the first
          generation of Muslims
          (i.e. the Sahabah).
          When all these are prevalent, wait for red winds,
          earthquakes, mutilation of
          bodies, tornadoes, and other signs."
          Anas ibn Malik (RA) further reports:
          "When indecency is prevalent in your elders, and
          ruling power is in the hands of the young, and
          knowledge is attained for one's own aspiration for
          it (i.e. to learn knowledge for fame or to merely fuel
          one's ego), and when
          nepotism is found in your best people, then await the
          last hour."
          >From amongst other signs of the Hour will be that:
          1. When a one hour crescent is sighted, it will be
          said that it is a two day
          moon,
          2. Women will grossly outnumber men, so much so tha
          tthe ration would be 1:50,
          3. Ignorance of Islam will be common,
          4. Much will be said (much information will be
          available), and little will
          be practiced upon.
          The onslaught of such a time has been described by the
          Holy Prophet Muhammad
          (SAW) in the following terms: "A time will come when a
          person steadfast on
          his religion will like holding hot coals in his hand."

              Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj


              Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj


              There is no doubt that Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj are two huge nations of the
              sons of Adam.

              Anyone who reads the story of Dhu値-Qarnayn and how he dealt with this
              nation in Soorat al-Kahf will know for sure that they exist and that the
              barrier which was built is not metaphorical or imaginary, but is a physical
              barrier built of iron and melted copper. The basic principle is that we
              should take this Qur誕nic text as it is, without resorting to any kind of
              misinterpretation or trying to twist the intended meaning. The Qur誕an has
              told us how the barrier was built and what materials were used, so it is not
              right to say that it is a metaphorical or imaginary barrier. In Soorat
              al-Kahf, Allaah has told us the story of the Muslim king and the great leader
              Dhu値-Qarnayn (may Allaah have mercy on him):





              AYAHS FROM SUARY KAHF!



              Until, when he reached between two mountains, he found, before (near)
              them, a people who scarcely understood a word.



              They said, 前 Dhu値-Qarnayn! Verily! Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj are doing great
              mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute in order that you
              might erect a barrier between us and them?



              He said: 禅hat (wealth, authority and power) in which my Lord has
              established me is better (than your tribute). So help me with strength (of men), I
              will erect between you and them a barrier.



              Give me pieces (blocks) of iron, then, when he had filled up the gap
              between the two mountain-cliffs, he said, 腺low, till when he had made it
              (red as) fire, he said, 腺ring me molten copper to pour over it.



              So they [Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj] were made powerless to scale it or dig
              through it.

              (Dhu値-Qarnayn) said: 禅his is a mercy from my Lord, but when the Promise
              of my Lord comes, He shall level it down to the ground. And the Promise of
              my Lord is ever true.樗
              [al-Kahf 18:93-98]





              What indicates that these nations exist at present, and indeed are
              attempting on a daily basis to get out and attack people.





              A hadeeth reported by Ibn Maajah with a saheeh isnad from Abu Hurayrah
              (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said:



              典he Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said
              that Ya男ooj and Ma男ooj are digging every day until they can almost see
              sunlight, then the one who is in charge of them says, 敵o back, we will dig
              again tomorrow. Then Allaah restores (the barrier) and makes it stronger
              than it was. (This will continue) until the appointed time. When Allaah
              wishes to send them against the people, they will dig until they can almost
              see sunlight, then the one who is in charge of them will say, 敵o back, we
              will dig again tomorrow, in sha Allah. This time he will say 妬n sha
              Allah, so when they come back (the next day), they will find it as they left
              it, so they will dig their way out and emerge to attack the people. They
              will dry up water (by drinking it, because of their great numbers), and the
              people will seek to protect themselves from them in their fortresses. They
              will fire their arrows into the sky, and the arrows will come back down
              covered in blood (as a test for
              them), and they will say, 展e have defeated the people of the earth and
              have gained the upper hand over the people of heaven. Then Allaah will
              send worms on the napes of their necks, which will kill them. The Messenger
              of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 釘y the One in
              Whose hand is my soul, the beasts of the earth will grow fat from their
              flesh. (Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 3298)

                    salam Alaikum...

                    the Prophet (salla Allahu Alaihee wa sallam) reported that there will be a man from Abyssinia who's called (Thu Al-Suwayqatain)called so due to the fact that his legs are widely spaced...He's black... and bald-headed...that man will destroy the Ka'ba stone by stone which will happen at the end of Time... He will appear at the time of Isaa Ibn Mariam...

                    It was reported by the Prophet that Thu-Al-Suwayqatain will steale the Ka'ba treasure and Kiswah (Cover) ...

                    There's a Hadith that says leave the Abyssinians alone...do not disturb them if they don't you... for no one will recover the treasure of the Ka'ba except a man from Abyssinia called The Suwayqatain... (My own translation)

                    now what treasure is that... I have no knowledge of that... and Allah knows best...

                    Life goes on ...

                      The trial of the Dajal, may Allah make it easeful for those who have to live through it.

                      How will the world populus react when the Gog & Magog emerge, the beast (Darbutul Urs?) with the Staff of Musa (PBUH) in one hamd and the ring of Sulayman (PBUH) on the other hand, the coming of the Dajal and so forth.

                      It sounds like chaos, may Allah preserve our Iman and give us much strength to see us through the days of test.

                        one ?..is the splitting of the Moon..the phases of..or eclipses?
                        Maybe self-improvement isn't the answer.... Maybe self-destruction is the answer.

                          Akhi, that sign has already passed... read Surah Al-Qamar...ayah 1... Allah says: ''The moon has split and the hour has drawn closer''... in books of tafseer this ayah is interpreted as follow:
                          The Mushrikeen asked the Prophet (SAW) before his immugration to Madinah to show them a 'sign' an 'evidence' that Allah exists... so it was the splitting of the moon... yet they still disbelieved...SubhanALlah...as you can see, in the ayah that present perfect tense is used 'has split' meaning it's already passed...yet when exactly I know not. It has been reported that the moon actually split 'twice' during the time of the Prophet Muhammed (Salla ALlahu Alayhee wassallam) ...it has split into to halves... and Allah knows best.
                          Life goes on ...
