The Emergence of Dajjaal and His Various Fitnahs -The Signs of Qiyaamah – Part Nineteen

The Emergence of Dajjaal and His Various Fitnahs

When Dajjaal will emerge in the world, he will first emerge from the east, between Syria and Iraq. Thereafter, he will proceed to Isfahaan where 70 000 Jews will join him. (Muslim #2944)

He will travel throughout the world, and wherever he goes, he will create colossal fitnah and widespread corruption. The only two lands which he will not be able to enter will be Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah.

When he reaches Makkah Mukarramah, he will try to enter it but will be unable to do so as Makkah Mukarramah will be protected and guarded by the angels. He will then try to enter Madinah Munawwarah, but will also be unable to enter it as it will also be protected and guarded by the angels.

In one Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “No land will remain except that Dajjaal will enter it and gain control over it, besides Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah. He will not approach these two cities from any of their passes except that the angels will face him with unsheathed swords, until he will settle at a small red hill where the salty land ends.” (Ibnu Maajah #4077)

In another Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The fear of Maseeh Dajjaal will not enter Madinah Munawwarah. On that day (i.e. at the time when Dajjaal will emerge and will come to Madinah Munawwarah,) it will have seven gates, and at every gate there will be two angels (guarding the entrance).” (Bukhaari #1879)

During his travels, he will mislead people and cause them to lose their imaan. The kuffaar will join him and support him, until his army and following will increase tremendously. He will initially claim prophethood, but will thereafter begin to claim that he is Allah. (Muslim #2937, Fathul Baari 13/97) His entire stay in the world, after his emergence, will be forty days.

Madinah Munawwarah will then be struck with three tremors. On account of the tremors, every male and female hypocrite will leave Madinah Munawwarah. After leaving Madinah Munawwarah, they will join the army of Dajjaal. In this manner, Madinah Munawwarah will expel its evil inhabitants, just as the bellows purify iron of its impurities. That day will be named “the day of khalaas” (the day of cleansing). (Muslim #2943, Haakim #8631)

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Dajjaal will emerge from a path between Shaam and Iraq and will spread havoc towards the North. O servants of Allah, remain firm! I am going to give you such a description of him which no Nabi before me gave (his people). He will initially say, “I am a Nabi,” whereas there is no Nabi after me. He will then make a second claim and say, “I am your rabb,” whereas you will not see your Rabb until you die. He has a defective eye, whereas your Rabb does not have a defective eye (i.e. Allah Ta‘ala is completely free of all defects). The word ‘Kaafir’ will be written between his eyes. Every believer, whether literate or not, will be able to read it.”

The Fire and Garden of Dajjaal

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “From among his fitnahs is that he will have a garden and a fire with him. His fire will actually be a garden, and his garden will actually be a fire. The one who faces the trial of his fire should seek the help of Allah Ta‘ala and recite the beginning verses of Surah Kahf. The fire will then be cool and safe for him, as it was for Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam).

Dajjaal Bringing the Dead to Life

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “From among his fitnahs is that he will say to a bedouin, “Tell me, if I bring your father and mother back to life for you, will you bear witness that I am your rabb?” The Bedouin will reply, “Yes.” Two shaitaans will then appear before him in the form of his parents and will say to him, “O beloved son! Follow him, as he is your rabb!”

“From among his fitnahs is that he will gain power over a certain person whom he will kill and cut with a saw until he separates his body into two pieces. He will then say, “Look at this servant of mine! I will now resurrect him, after which he will still claim that I am not his rabb.” Allah Ta‘ala will then resurrect this person. The wretched Dajjaal will ask him, “Who is your rabb?” He will reply, “My Rabb is Allah, and you are the enemy of Allah! You are Dajjaal! By Allah! Never was I more certain and clear regarding you being Dajjaal than I am today!””

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “That servant will have the highest rank from my ummah in Jannah (from the people of that time).” Hazrat Abu Sa’eed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “By Allah! We did not think that person to be anyone other than Hazrat Umar bin Khattaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), until he passed away (and we realized that it was not him).”

Dajjaal Causing Rain to Fall and Livestock to become Fat and Healthy

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) further mentioned, “From among his fitnahs is that he will pass by a certain locality and its people will reject him. After rejecting him, none of their livestock will remain without perishing and dying.

“From among his fitnahs is that he will pass by a locality and its people will accept him. After accepting him, he will command the sky to rain and it will do so, and he will command the earth to produce crops and it will do so, until their livestock will return in the evening of that very day fatter and bigger than they ever were previously, and with their hips larger and udders fuller than before.

“Nothing will remain of the earth without him overcoming it and dominating over it, besides Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah. He will not approach these two cities from any of their passes except that the angels will face him with unsheathed swords, until he will settle at a small red hill where the salty land ends.” (Ibnu Maajah #4077)

The Three Tremors in Madinah Munawwarah

Madinah Munawwarah will experience three tremors in short intervals. All the people who were weak and negligent in Deen will come out of Madinah Munawwarah fearing the tremors. In this way, Allah Ta‘ala will purify Madinah Munawwarah of the munaafiqeen (hypocrites). (Ibnu Maajah #4077) Once they come out, they will be trapped by Dajjaal.

There will be a pious man who will come out of Madinah Munawwarah and debate with Dajjaal. Dajjaal will become enraged and kill this pious person. After killing him, Dajjaal will bring him back to life and ask him, “Do you now believe that I am Allah?” He will reply, “Now I am more convinced that you are Dajjaal.” Dajjaal will try to strike him but will be unable to do so, nor will he have any influence over him in any way, as Allah Ta‘ala will take away his powers.  (Muslim #2937)
