Salam everyone, Lately I'm having a lot of doubts because of Ya'juj/Ma'juj story. A) the story of Dhul Qarnain (عليه السلام) and him building the wall against Gog/Magog ressembles other stories like those in the Alexander Romance and the Syriac Alexander Legend. Of course, it could be that those stories are based on a true event, hence the ressemblance. This isn't my main concern. B) the main issue -- which I want to discuss here -- is that we don't know the location of the barrier of Dhul Qarnayn (عليه السلام) despite the fact that such a barrier made out of iron and copper would be easily visible using satellites. Since G/M are so numerous (1000 times the number of Muslims according to some ahadith) they would also be quite easy to spot, being located behind that barrier. So, I was wondering whether it is possible that Ya'juj and Ma'juj are already out in the world (released from the barrier) and that they'll attack only at the end of times. If that's possible then I think my doubts would decrease. The quranic verses on that subject are the following: I searched (sunnii) hadiths and that's what I found out typing "Gog", "Yajuj" and then "Ya'juj": - Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri narrates in one hadith (I didn't find any other) explicitly stated that people would continue performing Hajj and Umra AFTER the release of Gog and Magog and that the Hour would come only when Hajj is abandoned (https://sunnah.com/bukhari/25/79) - Many other ahadith (up to 9 I think, but all from the same original narrator) say that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) informed Zaynab that an opening was made into the wall. She then asked " Shall we be destroyed even though there are pious persons among us?" and the Prophet said "Yes, when the evil person will increase" (https://sunnah.com/bukhari/60/26). To me it looks like these ahadith is telling us that we'll be destroyed as soon as G/M are released. - There is a couple of ahadith narrated by Abu Hurrairah in which G/M will not escape until they utter "Inchallah" and it seems as if they will cause destruction as soon as they are released (https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah/36/155) - Then there are different versions talking about the coming of Jesus (عليه السلام). One hadith tells the story of Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) fighting against the Dajjal and, after the latter is defeated, the release of G/M. From the wording it seems like the release of G/M and they killing everyone happens at the same time (https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah/36/150). There is also a similar hadith but it simply indicates that "the people will return to their own lands and will be confronted with Gog and Magog people": we can't infer anything from this narration (https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah/36/156). Four other similar ahadith instead mention that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will warn Isa (عليه السلام) and order him to take the Muslims to Tur in safety and then Gog and Magog will emerge and they will, as Allah describes, "swoop down from every mound." : again we can't infer anything based on that (https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah/36/150). --> to sum up, there are a few verses about the barrier and I'm not sure if they could be interpreted as God already having freed G/M. As for the ahadith, we have only one hadith explicitely stating that the moment of release of Ya'juj/Ma'juj and the moment they'll cause destruction are separated in time but all the other ahadith make it seem like G/M won't wait at all and will destroy everything as soon as they are released. So, according to you, brothers and sisters, is it possible to interpret the verses and ahadith in the way I mentionned above?
(bismillah) (salam) As many of you may know I have had many many doubts mainly regarding Ghusl, Wudhu and Salah. The doubts I had made religion sooo hard for me to follow and I was making it difficult for myself because of my doubts, alhamdulillah I doubt less now and I would hate for others to doubt like how I did so I made this thread. I would like whoever has doubts to send me a PM about their doubt and insha'Allah I can help them solve it. The reason why I believe I will be able to help them is because I have gone through countless scenarios doubting about many different things. The reason why I am saying PM me is because if you write it here others may pick up the doubts, for example one of the doubts which I got was because my friend told me about his doubt and I ended up doubting about that same thing because he told me about it. I don't think I will pick up the doubt as I have probably had the doubt before myself. Edit: I must have used the word 'doubt' alot of times in there :lol: (wasalam)
