The Story of Dajjal

Dr. Jalali: The rise of Dajjal is regarded as one of the signs of the appearance of the Mahdi. He has been described in the traditions as a disbeliever who does not have more than one eye which is located on his forehead and shines like a star. On his forehead is written the following: "He is a disbeliever " which every person literate or illiterate will be able to read. There will be an abundance of food and a river of water with him at all the times. He will ride a white donkey whose each step will span a mile. At his command the sky will rain and the earth will grow vegetation. The earth will be at his discretion. He will bring the dead back to life. He will cry out in a loud voice that will be heard all over the world saying: "I am your almighty god who created you and who sustains you. Run towards me!"

It is said that there was a person during the Prophet's time who was called 'Abd Allah or Sa'd b. Sayda. The Prophet and his companions went to visit him in his house. He claimed to be a god. 'Umar wanted to kill him but the Prophet restrained him. He is still living and at the End of Time will emerge from Isfahan in the village of Yahudiyya.[15]

It is reported from Tamim al-Dari a Christian convert to Islam in the 9 AH/630 CE who said: "I saw Dajjal in chains and fetters on one of the islands in the west."[16]

Mr. Hoshyar: In English Dajjal is known as the 'Antichrist' that is the one 'against' or the 'enemy' of Christ. The name Dajjal is

( 228 )

not a proper noun of an individual In Arabic any impostor or a deceiver is called 'Dajjal'. In the Bible also the word 'dajjal' can be seen in the same sense. In the First Letter of John 2:22 it is written:

Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.

In another place in the same letter 2:18 it is written:

Children it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming so now many antichrists have come therefore we know that it is the last hour.

And in 4:3 it says:

And every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist of which you heard that it was coming and now it is in the world already.

In the Second Letter of John verse 7 it is written:

For many deceivers have gone out into the world men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.

From these references in the Bible it is evident that the word dajjal ('antichrist') is used in the meaning of a 'deceiver' and a 'liar.' Moreover the story of the rise of the antichrist was well known among the Christians who awaited his rise.

It appears that Jesus (peace be upon him) had mentioned the emergence of the antichrist and had warned people about his sedition. Accordingly Christians awaited him. In all probability the antichrist mentioned by Jesus was the false messiah a certain man named Dajjal who appeared some five centuries following Jesus Christ and falsely claimed to be a prophet. It was he who was

( 229 )

crucified and not Jesus the Prophet. In Islam also there are a number of traditions about the existence of Dajjal. The Prophet used to warn people against the sedition of Dajjal saying: "All the Prophets who came after Noah used to warn their community about the sedition of Dajjal."[17]

The Prophet is reported to have said: "The Day of Judgement will not take place until thirty Dajjals emerge claiming to be a prophet."[18]

'Ali b. Abi Talib said: "Be afraid of the two Dajjals who will be born of the descendants of Fatima. A Dajjal ('imposter') will arise from Dijla at Basra who is not from me. He will be the forerunner of a number of Dajjals ('deceivers')."[19]

In another tradition the Prophet said: "The Day of Judgement will not commence until thirty liars and Dajjal-like persons appear and ascribe falsehood to God and His Prophet."[20]

In still another tradition the Prophet is reported to have said: "Before the rise of Dajjal more than seventy Dajjals ('impostors') will precede." [21]

From all these traditions it appears that 'Dajjal' is not the name of a specific person. Like the word 'antichrist' it is generally applied to any deceiver imposter and fraudulent person. In short the roots of the story of Dajjal must be searched in the Bible and among the Christians. Thereafter most of the hadith-reports on the subject with all of their details are to be found in the Sunni books and were transmitted by their narrators. It is quite possible that the actual events concerning Dajjal as foretold in some traditions might be true. However all the details about his features and character do not have the stamp of authenticity on them since the majority of these descriptions published in Bihar al-anwar and other books are reported by unidentified narrators.[22] Consequently even if it is hypothetically admitted that the actual instance of the appearance of Dajjal is authentic the details that are provided have certainly been colored by fictitious stories. We can maintain this much without difficulty: that in the Last Days and close to the emergence of the twelfth Imam a man will be found who will be singularly a deceiver

( 230 )

and an imposter surpassing in wickedness all the previous Dajjals. He will mislead a group by his nihilistic claims. He will present himself to the people as if he is in control of their bread and water. People will become so delinquent in moral discernment that they will begin to believe that the entire universe is within his control. In his deceitful communication he will introduce good works as bad and bad as good. He will show hellfire as paradise and paradise as hellfire. But his disbelief will be evident to all literate and illiterate persons.

However there is no evidence to regard Sa'id b. Sayd as the promised Dajjal or to believe that he continues to live since the time of the Prophet. For apart from the weakness in the chain of transmission the Prophet is reported to have said this about Dajjal:

"He will not enter the two cities of Mecca and Medina." On the contrary Sa'id b. Sayd had entered these cities. He died in Medina and some people were witness to his death.[23]

If it is hypothetically accepted that the Prophet did name Sa'id as Dajjal he must have used the word in its common meaning as a 'deceiver' and a 'liar' rather than as the Dajjal who is part of the signs of the appearance of the Mahdi. In other words when the Prophet met Sa'id he introduced him as a personification of an antichrist to his companions. Following that when he informed the people about the emergence of Dajjal in the Final Days those who heard him thought the reference was being made to Sa'id b. Sayd whom he had called a Dajjal and it is this Dajjal who would appear as one of the signs of the Last Days akhir al-zaman. The tradition about Dajjal being alive and possessing a long age comes from this incident.

JazakAllah Khair for trying to help the brother, however from what I gather your information is based on sunni sources, thus is of no help to a shi`a who wants to know about dajjal, but thank you for taking your time to reply :)

Thank you for the polite reply. :)

Well from what I heard was, that, Dajjal the one eyed Messiah will appear when the Temple of Solomon is rebuilt. And the Freemason(a family) is in the charge of Illuminati. Well this I believe. But I also believe in the other signs Islam says, as a Shia. I hope I was useful.

Dajjal will appear in isfahan 

The Jews will follow Dajjal estimated at 70,000

The Dajjal will followed by ignorant men and mostly women

He will be one eyed

Dajjal is a person

The current worldly system is centered around Dajjal....the illuminati does exist and the Jews control the world

The Jews run America

America is controlled by both Jews and the Elite- the top 1% 

America then controls the world through these people

The Christians and Jews and Polytheists and Atheists are preparing for the Dajjal

Only Iran and the shia people in Iraq, Lebanon are preparing for imam mahdi

The Dajjal will be the greatest fitna ever to happen....truly are lucky the people who defy and deny him

He will cross all lands except for Mecca and Medina

I do not know how far away we are.....but i know for sure there are signs

 

The music industry, hollywood, and the like are Dajjal oriented

The media is Dajjal oriented

I can say that Dajjal will come before the year 3000....and he will be here before the year 2500.......and he will be here before the year 2300.....and he will be here before the year 2200....

There is a bomb that has been planted on earth....and the clock is ticking and once the time is reached......prepare for the worst....

Let us look at the world population------->once it reaches peak population......disasters will strike...this is bound to happen before 2100

It has been years since a world war happened......and a third world war is bound happen.........

.....one day while watching tv you'll say what is happening around the world......there will be chaos...and death and famine and disaster...this chance increases day by day.....right now the world is living golden ages........but in the future the world will be become an unbearable place to live.......it will be very difficult to pass the time without disaster......

 

The Shia are in trouble and the only place safe for them is in Iran........as days pass by......more deaths will happen to Shia and their numbers will dwindle......it will become hell for the shia here on earth........they will not find peace..........and they will find trouble everywhere they go.........i feel sorry for the shia and may God be with them........

 

The Dajjal is coming and as each day passes the person is closer to emerging but before signs like

 

Sufyani

The Chaos in Syria

The appearance of Mahdi

Earthquakes, wars, plagues, famines

 

World population will be reduced by 2/3 before the advent of mahdi......so once this sign occurs then anticipate the coming of mahdi.....

 

Patience is golden

The Dajjal (la) is a person as the hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his Family) and Amir al-Muminin (as) have stated. However there is most likely a system centered around The Dajjal (la) himself. Which I believe Illuminati, Freemasons, Jews, Sufism, Irfan, Kabbalah, Mysticism, Occultism, Atheism, Materialism and Satanism are part of.

Salaam, what you have mentioned is true and already happening...Here are some pieces to the puzzle as to how this is happening: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/category/legal-action/

There is a dajjal that has already came because there is a deception in the world accumulated from mankinds shirk and fitna, 

 It has created a consciousness of a dajjal, each dajjal in my own theory is interconnected to create a supreme consciousness leading up to the dajjal that is in our external and internal worlds at all times, in a way he has already come, in the most un-literal way speaking.

even deep with in us when we are not connected to the true reality of Allah's perspective there  is a dajjal.

Another  instance in my opinion the u.s institution itself is a dajjal because of its agenda into deceiving people that there is a urgent need for it in the world, same with its prison systems and hospitals that over diagnose problems they exaggerate and/or create. I think some people who work for them (being the u.s institution) are already subconsciously connected to the supreme dajjal and his consciousness is already mass amounted through out the world, suffocating true believers in shirk and fitna.
