It is narrated from Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم),


‘when Dajjal (l.a) was born, I visited him and presented Islam to him but he refused to accept it and hurled insults to me (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) , i.e., you are not better than me in leading people. Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said, ‘ go away, O malicious animal! You will definitely meet destruction and will never succeed in your devious objectives. Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), then told his companions, Every Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) did warn his nation about the ‘fitna’ of Dajjal. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), however, delayed Dajjal’s birth and did not let him appear until now. Be 
aware! he will claim to be God and try to create doubts in your minds. Have a firm belief; one-eyed creature cannot be your Lord (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). He will come out riding on a monster donkey, which will have a distance of one mile between its two ears. He will claim to have come 
with the gifts of paradise and arsenal of hell. He will carry a mountain of bread and rivers of water. He will get the support of the Jews, people from the wilderness and women. He will 
be able to travel all over the world but will be barred from entering into Mecca and Madinah. 


Ibn Babowiya narrates from Amir-ul-Momineen Mawla Ali (عليه السلام)  that one day Imam Ali (عليه السلام) declared from the pulpit,

‘Saluni Qabal En Tafqadduni’ (Ask me anything before I leave you behind).

A companion, Sayasa asked from Amir ul momaneen (عليه السلام) , ‘O Successor of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) please tell us when will Dajjal emerge?’ Mawla Ali (عليه السلام) replied,

‘there are a few signs which will 
become noticeable prior to his appearance, those signs are: people would stop offering prayers, people will be robbed of their deposits; twisting facts would be considered an appreciable quality; society will accept interest and use bribe as a means of subsistence; religion will be sold for the worldly gains; idiots will take over the intelligent; innocent will be slaughtered; those with humble and courteous ways will be called weak and naïve; those 
with harsh and cruel customs will be envied and praised; wealthy will be traitors; government officials will be malicious; prosperous would be evasive; clerics will be devious; adultery and illegitimate relationships will become societal norm; woman will participate in 
trade with men; falsehood and speculation will be admired; women will ride on saddle and prefer manly styles whereas men would like to dress like women; and that year will also 
experience a severe famine.


Mawla (عليه السلام) continued, the ‘One’ (Imam Mahdi) (عليه السلام) who would lead Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) in congressional prayers, will terminate Dajjal and by this will then be followed by a diabolic bloodshed. 


Then Asbagh bin Nabata (or Kanana) stood up and asked, Who is Dajjal, O Amir al Momineen (عليه السلام) ? Imam (عليه السلام) replied, ‘Sayaad -the son of Alsaad, only terminally ill fated will follow him. He will appear from a village called ‘Yahodia’ near city of Aisfahan (Iran), his right eye 
will be punctured and his left eye would be raised onto his forehead and will be sparkling like a star. Everyone will be able to read the word ‘Kafar’, inscribed in bold letters, within his two eyes. There will be big mountains of smoke at both front and backsides of his caravan. People will anticipate food within those mountains (as he will be eating and 
drinking from there), during the severe famine. He will be riding on a huge white coloured ‘donkey’ who will cover a mile in a single stride. All rivers, falling in his way, will become dry and he will call upon people in aloud voice, ‘O my friends! Come to me! I am your lord 
who has made your limbs and gave you sustenance. 

Malwa Ali (عليه السلام) then said, the one - eyed enemy of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who will not manage without eating, drinking and wondering around-will be a deceiver. Your Lord (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is autonomous from these limitations. Most of his followers will be illegitimate and will be wearing green turbans. He will then be killed by the ‘One’(عليه السلام) who 
will be the Imam (عليه السلام) of Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) in congressional prayers. This will happen at the place of ‘Aqabah’ near ‘Sham’ (Syria) between afternoon and evening. After this there will be tremendous devastation. People then asked, O Imam (عليه السلام)! what will be that calamity?

Mawla Ali (عليه السلام) replied that Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: ‘Dabba-tul-Arz’ will be born near the mountain of Safa (near Mecca). He will have the ring of Hazrat Sulaman (عليه السلام) and ‘Asa’ (walking stick) of 
Hazrat Musa (عليه السلام). He will inscribe on the forehead of ‘Momin’ (true believer) using the ring and will write on the forehead of ‘Kafir’ using the ‘Asa’. Momin’s forehead would read ‘ this is true believer’ whereas Kafir’s forehead could be read as ‘this is non-believer’. Then ‘Dabba-tul-Arz’ would raise his head and will be clearly seen by all. This will happen after Sun rise 
from the West (instead of East)-at this time no repentance will be accepted. Amir ul momaneen (عليه السلام) then said, ‘ do not ask any further because Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) has barred all other 
details for anyone else but Ahlul Bait (عليه السلام).


The narrator states, ‘I, later on, asked from Sahsah, ‘please tell me about the ‘person’ who will be followed by Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) in the congressional prayers. The answer was he will be the 9th Divine Imam from the bloodline of Imam 
Hussain (عليه السلام), who will appear between the ‘Rukan-e-Hajar and Muqam-e-Ibrahim’ and re-establish justice as it will be filled with cruelty.

There are a number of Ahadith from Masomeen (عليه السلام) which indicate that ‘Dabba-tul-Arz’ will, in fact be Amir-al-Momaneen (عليه السلام) and will appear after the ‘zahoor’ of Imam Mehdi (عليه السلام) and this time will be very close the Day of Judgement.

There is similar hadith about the coming of Dajjal from Asbehan in sunnis. But there is no such thing that its location is Iran. This is false assumption only.

Also the term used during early Islam period was Khorasan (not Iran) for this location that is not found in any of sunni or shia hadith in Arabic text.

The following link also describe the details:


May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) keep us under the banner of Islam with Imam Al Mahdi (عليه السلام)
