Dajjal's Island in the Persian Gulf?
Salam, if this has been discussed elsewhere then this can be moved to the most relevant place.
But i read a good article/blog by someone, this is the article:
NOTE: THE TAMIM AL-DARI HADITH IS NOT INCLUDED (in this, but it is in the article i read) AS IT IS LONG, BUT MOST OF US KNOW THAT HADITH VERY WELL. SO IT IS OK TO NOT INCLUDE IT.
So this is the article, (READ IT, IT IS VERY COMPELLING AND MAY BE THE CORRECT VIEW?)
From where did Tamim ad-Dari and his crew sail?
This part of the hadith sheds some light on the issue:
The Prophet(pbuh) said, "By Allah, I have not called you together for hope or for fear, I have called you together because Tamim ad- Dari who was a Christian, came and embraced Islam."
This part of the hadith clearly shows that Tamim ad-Dari narrated his story about the the island of the Dajjal to the Prophet(Pbuh) the same day he came to Arabia to embrace Islam. Thus he and his crew could not have sailed from Saudi Arabia, but from their homeland.
So we need to know where was Tamim's homeland located:
"He informed me that he had embarked upon a sea-boat with thirty men of Lakhm and Jozam. "
So Tamim ad-Dari sailed with men from the tribes of Banu-Lakhm and Jozam.
The evidence suggests that Tamim ad-Dari himself was a Lakhmide, from the tribe of Banu-Lakhm. Tamim is described by the Prophet as a Christian who came to embrace Islam, thus, we can conclude that he was from The Banu Lakhm tribe which was a Christian tribe located in modern day Kufa, Iraq.
The Christian Banu-Lakhm were settled around Al-Hirah, in the southern part of Iraq:
The Persian Gulf is the closest destination for Banu Lakhm to sail from. This is why the Prophet said that the Dajjal is in the east, he pointed towards the Persian Gulf which is in the east of Saudi Arabia.
Some information on the Banu Lakhm Tribe:
"The Lakhmids were originally a Bedouin tribal kingdom ruled by the Banu Lakhm, hence the name Lakhmids. According to tradition, the founder of the dynasty was 'Amr, whose son Imru' al-Qays died in AD 328 and was entombed at Al-Nimarah in the Syrian desert. His funerary inscription is written in an extremely difficult type of script. Recently there has been a revival of interest in the inscription, and controversy has arisen over its precise implications. One thing that is certain is that Imru' al-Qays claimed the title "king of all the Bedouin" and claimed to have campaigned successfully over the entire north and centre of the peninsula, as far as the border of Najran. According to Muslim sources, it is said that he was given by the Sassanid king Shapur II a "governorship" over the Bedouin of northeast Arabia, being charged with the task of restraining their incursions into Sassanid territory. Later kings of the dynasty settled themselves in that area, at Al-Hirah on the Euphrates in southern Iraq. They were rivals to the Ghassanids who were subject kings of the Sassanids rivals, the Byzantine Empire. The kingdom's subjects were composed of a mix of Arabs and Arameans. The kingdom was also a major centre of Nestorian Christianity. They remained influential throughout the 6th century, and only in 602 was the last Lakhmid king, Nu'man ibn al-Mundhir, put to death by the Sassanid king Khosrau II and the kingdom dissolved."
The Prophet (pbuh) said: 'Behold, he (The Dajjal) is in the Syrian sea or sea of Yemen; no, rather he is from the eastern direction. He then pointed out with his hand to wards the East.'
Thus we should look towards the East of Saudi Arabia.
The Island of the Dajjal is in the Persian Gulf, East of Saudi Arabia.
Many little islands can be found in the Persian Gulf.
There is no doubt, one of the following islands was the Island of the Dajjal that Tamim ad-Dari and his crew visited:
* Amwaj Islands
* Bahrain Island
* Hawar Islands
* Jidda Island
* Muharraq Island
* Nabih Saleh
* Umm an Nasan
* Umm as Sabaan
* Abu Musa Island
* Buneh Island
* Dara Island
* Farsi Island
* Forur Bozorg Island
* Forur Koochak Island
* Forurgan Island
* Germ Island
* Greater and Lesser Tunbs
* Hendurabi Island
* Hengam Island
* Hormuz Island
* Jonobi Island
* Kharg Island or Khark island
* Kish Island
* Larak Island
* Kharku Island
* Se Dandan
* Lavan Island
* Minu Island
* Omolkarm Island
* Qabre Nakhoda Island
* Qeshm Island
* Qeys Island
* Rostam Island
* Shatvar Island
* Sheikh Shoeyb Island
* Shif Island
* Sirri Island
* Shomali Island
* Smaller Bent Island
* Auhah Island
* Bubiyan Island
* Failaka Island
* Kubbar Island
* Miskan Island
* Qaruh Island
* Umm al Maradim Island
* Umm an Namil Island
* Warbah Island
Many of theses Islands had Monasteries built on them during Tamim ad-Dari's era.
Ancient Monasteries can be found in different Islands of the Persian Gulf (visit Wikipedia)
Dajjal will emerge from the East: Isfahan, Persia:
This should make sense, if the Dajjal was in an Island in the Persian Gulf, the closest destination is Persia:
The Prophet (PBUH) said: "The Dajjal will be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls." (Muslim)
