In those hadiths that refer to the End Times, it is reported that the emergence of the dajjal, who will orchestrate evil on Earth and turn people away from religious moral values, is one of the great portents of doomsday.

The increasing violence, torture, anarchy, disorder, slaughter, war, conflict, cruelty and state and other forms of terror show that the dajjal has emerged and is orchestrating all these. (Allah knows the truth)

Image

According to the hadiths of our Prophet (saas), it appears that the dajjal will hide in a rocky place. In fact, the Haram Sharif area in Jerusalem stands on rock. The sacred rock Hajar al-Muallaq from which our Prophet (saas) embarked on his miraculous journey and on which the Dome of the Rock was later built, stands there. The rocky region mentioned in the hadith is probably the Haram- Sharif where the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque stand, and this is in all likelihood where the dajjal is hiding.


According to the information in the hadiths, the return to Earth of the Prophet Jesus (as), the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the emergence of the dajjal will all take place in the same period. Our Prophet (saas) has reported that the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will perform the daily prayer together. In one hadith we are told that:

Quote:
Although their IMAM will be the HAZRAT MAHDI (AS), a pure individual, THEY WILL SEEK REFUGE IN BAYT AL-MAQDIS. There, at a time when their imam appears before them to lead them in the morning prayer, they will see that JESUS SON OF MARYAM (AS) HAS DESCENDED IN THE MORNING. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will withdraw to permit the Prophet Jesus (as) to come to the fore. THE PROPHET JESUS (AS) WILL PLACE HIS HAND ON HIS SHOULDERS AND SAY “Lead the prayers. Because the call has been made for you” …When the prayers are finished, the Prophet Jesus (as) will say, “Open the mosque door.” When the door is opened, seventy thousand people with the shawls around them WILL BE SEEN WAITING WITH THE DAJJAL… 1


The Dajjal Will Appear at the Beginning of the Century

It is also reported in the hadiths that the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will wage an intellectual campaign against the strife of the dajjal. The hadiths contain indications of which period this struggle will take place. In one hadith our Prophet (saas) has told us that the dajjal will appear at the beginning of the century:

Quote:
A most significant event has taken place at the beginning of every century since the world was created. AT THE BEGINNING OF ONE CENTURY THE DAJJAL WILL APPEAR AND Jesus son of Maryam (as) will descend to Earth and make him ineffective. 2


Another of the hadiths of our Prophet (saas) says that:

Quote:
The life of this community will EXCEED A THOUSAND YEARS, but not ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED YEARS… 3


Since our Prophet (saas) reveals that the life of his community will not exceed 1500 years, it is likely that he is indicating the 2000s as the time these great events will take place.

In his sermon at the Omayyid Mosque in Damascus in Hijri 1327, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, the great Islamic scholar, described the future of the Islamic world after 1371, and emphasised that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) great intellectual struggle would take place in the 2000s:

Quote:
“Even if it does not happen now, 30-40 YEARS LATER, equipped with these three forces, knowledge of science and art and the good and beneficial aspects of civilisation, the tendency to investigate the truth and human love, sent to the fight against those nine hostile classes, will meet the needs and overcome and disperse those nine obstacles and will, insha’Allah, eradicate them HALF A CENTURY ON.” 4


In the words “half a century later,” Said Nursi indicated that the effects of materialist, Darwinist and atheistic philosophies would be eliminated, through Hazrat Mahdi (as), in Hijri 1421, in other words 2001. In another mention of the date when Hazrat Mahdi (as) would appear, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi stated that Hazrat Mahdi (as) would come after himself and that “they imagined that the century of truths in the history of the world that WOULD COME 1400 YEARS LATER was close at hand,” (Sayings, 318) once again indicating that date. In another account, Bediuzzaman reported that he was preparing the ground for Hazrat Mahdi (as), whom he described as an “amazing individual:”

“I think of myself as a servant of and one who prepares the way for that awe inspiring individual, and a member of that great commander’s vanguard.” (Barla Addendum, 162)


The Dajjal Will Incite Anarchy and Terror

The hadiths indicate that the dajjal will cause strife and disorder all over the world. The increasing violence, torture, anarchy, disorder, war, conflict and state and other forms of terror in recent years all show that the dajjal has appeared and is orchestrating these. This is revealed one hadith:

Quote:
(At that time) There will be much CORRUPTION, DISORDER AND REBELLION, and people will KILL ONE ANOTHER. People will take their own lives and the world will be filled with sorrow. The accursed DAJJAL will appear at such a troubled time... 5


Image

In the Qur’an, Allah has revealed the existence of people who create confusion and damage order, who organise evil and who constantly seek to incite war. In one verse it is stated that:

… Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters. (Surat Al-Ma’ida: 64)

The dajjal is the leading representative of this immorality. He uses violence, terror and anarchy as weapons of oppression in order to create greater bloodshed. In other hadiths it is reported that killing will increase in the End Times, and that wars incited by the dajjal will lay waste all places:

Quote:
He said: “Doomsday will draw nigh, governance will be lacking, people will adopt excessive parsimony and greed, and there will be much turmoil.”
The companions asked, “What is turmoil?”
“KILLING, KILLING!” replied the Prophet (saas). 6

There is no place in which the DAJJAL WILL NOT VANQUISH ARMIES. 7


The wars taking place in our time between countries, with no valid justification, the internal conflicts arising from artificial causes, and the terrorist attacks against innocent, civilian targets are examples of the turmoil caused by the dajjal.


The Tactics Employed by the Dajjal to Spread Anarchy and Terror

In his works, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi stressed the conflicts and confusion that the dajjal would cause on Earth. The Master also described the tactics the dajjal would employ in order to spread anarchy and terror and thus prepare the way for Gog and Magog (portents of Doomsday that will appear in the End Times). Bediuzzaman tells us that:

Quote:
The great dajjal WILL PREPARE THE WAY FOR ANARCHY AND GOG AND MAGOG BY DAMAGING the unificatory elements that manage the social lives of Christians through the indoctrination of satan and eliminating the stipulations of Christianity…By seeking to eradicate one eternal part of the law of Muhammad (Qur’anic moral values imparted by the Prophet (saas)) using earthly desires and satanic deceptions, he will seek to dissolve such radiant chains as respect and compassion by leaving people at the mercy of obstinate, drunken and random earthly desires; HE WILL PRODUCE AN INTENSE ANARCHY by creating a compulsory and oppressive freedom for people to attack one another in the swamp of their earthly passions ... 8



Bediuzzaman describes how the dajjal will achieve this objective:

1. By causing people to follow their earthly desires
.. BY SEEKING TO ERADICATE one eternal part of the law of Muhammad (Qur’anic moral values imparted by the Prophet (saas)) using EARTHLY DESIRES AND SATANIC DECEPTIONS…

As the Master indicates, the dajjal will cause people to turn away from implementing religious moral values. He will inculcate the idea of following their earthy desires into their consciences.

2. By eliminating respect and compassion among people
...By damaging the physical and spiritual unificatory elements of human life and DISSOLVING SUCH RADIANT CHAINS AS RESPECT AND COMPASSION by leaving people at the mercy of obstinate, drunken and random desires.

The devotion, willingness to assist others, affection, compassion, love and modesty, elements of the moral values commanded by Allah are factors that strengthen people physically and spiritually, bind them together, and establish order and solidarity in society. The dajjal will damage this order by means of indoctrination that eliminates these elements. The Master is indicating this here.

3. By keeping people under pressure

...HE WILL PRODUCE AN INTENSE ANARCHY by creating a compulsory and oppressive freedom for people to assault one another in the swamp of earthly passions…

In these words, the Master is noting that in an earthly climate established by the dajjal people will imagine themselves to be free, but that he will actually keep them under pressure and control. In the system inculcated by the dajjal most people think they lead so-called modern and free lives by following their lower-selves. Their tastes, amusements, conversation and even clothing and the food they eat represent the same conception in line with the life style to which they are directed. The dajjal’s aim is thus to leave society ignorant and unable to think, reflect or evaluate. Because it is a very easy matter to lead the ignorant. In addition, in this sytem based on earthly desires people are led not by their mind and conscience, but by desires and passions, which results in terrible confusion.

The dajjal also uses other methods to achieve his aims. As indicated in the hadiths, one of these is to seek to influence society by declaring the dajjal to be a prophet, and even divine. (Surely Allah is beyond that)

The Dajjal Will First Announce That He Is a Prophet, and Then His Alleged Divinity

In one hadith our Prophet Muhammad (saas) has stated;

Quote:
When he (the dajjal) appears … EVERYONE WILL IMAGINE HIM TO BE A SPIRITUAL GUIDE and follow him, then, coming to KUFA, he will continue his endeavours in the same way AND DECLARE HIMSELF A PROPHET. Rational people who see this will then depart from him … He WILL THEN CLAIM TO BE DIVINE … He will say (May Allah have mercy) “I am Allah.” (Tabarani related this from the Companion b. Mu’tamar.)9


Image

One of the features of the dajjal revealed in the hadiths is that he will portray himself as a spiritual guide, and even a prophet. This indicates that while the dajjal is organizing evil he will direct people, supposedly in the name of Allah, as if he had a religious objective. Finally, the dajjal will declare his supposed divinity. (Surely Allah is beyond that)

Another hadith describes this perversion of the dajjal’s thus:

Quote:
He (the dajjal) will first say, “I AM A PROPHET.” Yet there will be no prophet after me. He will then make a second claim, saying, “I AM YOUR LORD.” Yet you cannot see your Lord until you die....10


As is clear from the information in the hadiths, the dajjal will manifest himself in many different spheres. His real idea is that he is supposedly divine. However, since he imagines that this will have a negative impact on his plans if he states it openly, he will indoctrinate people with the idea very slowly. For that reason, he will first declare himself to be a guide, then a prophet, and only then divine.

The dajjal’s actions are suggested by satan, who is the dajjal’s friend and helpmate. Our Prophet (saas) has reported that the dajjal will receive help from satan and his friends. As stated by our Prophet (saas), with satan’s help and support the dajjal will spread the falsehood that he is supposedly a deity.

Quote:
DEVILS WILL SAY TO HIM, “TELL US WHAT YOU WISH, AND WE WILL DO IT.” He will say: “Go, and tell people I am their lord” and he will disperse them in all directions. ... 11 (Surely Allah is beyond that)


The position of people who have fallen under the dominion of satan is revealed thus in the Qur’an:

If someone shuts his eyes to the remembrance of the All-Merciful, We assign him a satan who becomes his bosom friend (Surat Az-Zukhruf :36)

As an indication of his lack of faith, the dajjal is terrified of satan rather than of Allah, and obeys the former, who commands him to create corruption on Earth, to encourage violence and terror, to shed people’s blood and to lead them to evil.

According to what can be gleaned from the hadiths, the present period in which the dajjal is operating in secret is when he will suggest that he is a spiritual guide. Certain people who are weak in faith and mind may be affected by the dajjal’s claim to be a spiritual guide. Yet as with his supposed claim to divine status, the dajjal is the enemy of our Lord, the prophets and religious moral values. (Surely Allah is beyond that) He is opposed to our Prophet Muhammad (saas), the Prophet Moses (as), the Prophet Jesus (as), the Prophet David (as), the Prophet Solomon (as) and all the other holy prophets. Bediuzzaman also states the hostility of the dajjal to sacred values in this wise extract;

Quote:
The dajjal has characteristics that encourage hypnotism of the spiritualist kind… A denier who lives solely for worldly ends attacks sacred values with a bare-facedness and courage born out of lack of faith. 12


Where is the dajjal (antichrist) hiding?



In those hadiths that refer to the End Times, it is reported that the emergence of the dajjal, who will orchestrate evil on Earth and turn people away from religious moral values, is one of the great portents of doomsday.

The increasing violence, torture, anarchy, disorder, slaughter, war, conflict, cruelty and state and other forms of terror show that the dajjal has emerged and is orchestrating all these. (Allah knows the truth)

According to the hadiths of our Prophet (saas), it appears that the dajjal will hide in a rocky place. In fact, the Haram Sharif area in Jerusalem stands on rock.

It is also reported in the hadiths that the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will wage an intellectual campaign against the strife of the dajjal. The hadiths contain indications of which period this struggle will take place. In one hadith our Prophet (saas) has told us that the dajjal will appear at the beginning of the century:


A most significant event has taken place at the beginning of every century since the world was created. AT THE BEGINNING OF ONE CENTURY THE DAJJAL WILL APPEAR AND Jesus son of Maryam (as) will descend to Earth and make him ineffective.2


Another of the hadiths of our Prophet (saas) says that:


The life of this community will EXCEED A THOUSAND YEARS, but not ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED YEARS…3

Since our Prophet (saas) reveals that the life of his community will not exceed 1500 years, it is likely that he is indicating the 2000s as the time these great events will take place.

There is no place in which the DAJJAL WILL NOT VANQUISH ARMIES.7


The wars taking place in our time between countries, with no valid justification, the internal conflicts arising from artificial causes, and the terrorist attacks against innocent, civilian targets are examples of the turmoil caused by the dajjal.


The Tactics Employed by the Dajjal to Spread Anarchy and Terror

The Master also described the tactics the dajjal would employ in order to spread anarchy and terror and thus prepare the way for Gog and Magog (portents of Doomsday that will appear in the End Times).

Rational people who see this will then depart from him … He WILL THEN CLAIM TO BE DIVINE … He will say (May Allah have mercy) “I am Allah.” (Tabarani related this from the Companion b. Mu’tamar.)9

One of the features of the dajjal revealed in the hadiths is that he will portray himself as a spiritual guide, and even a prophet. This indicates that while the dajjal is organizing evil he will direct people, supposedly in the name of Allah, as if he had a religious objective. Finally, the dajjal will declare his supposed divinity. (Surely Allah is beyond that)

According to what can be gleaned from the hadiths, the present period in which the dajjal is operating in secret is when he will suggest that he is a spiritual guide. Certain people who are weak in faith and mind may be affected by the dajjal’s claim to be a spiritual guide. Yet as with his supposed claim to divine status, the dajjal is the enemy of our Lord, the prophets and religious moral values. (Surely Allah is beyond that) He is opposed to our Prophet Muhammad (saas), the Prophet Moses (as), the Prophet Jesus (as), the Prophet David (as), the Prophet Solomon (as) and all the other holy prophets.

The dajjal has characteristics that encourage hypnotism of the spiritualist kind… A denier who lives solely for worldly ends attacks sacred values with a bare-facedness and courage born out of lack of faith. 12

When the period in which the dajjal openly declares his alleged divinity arrives, the Prophet Jesus (as) will, by the leave of Allah, make him ineffective and destroy all his snares.


He May Deceive Most People with False Miracles

It is revealed in hadiths that the dajjal will employ various deceptive methods in declaring his supposed divinity and will perform false miracles with the help of satan:

Quote:
One of his corruptions is this; He will say a Bedouin, “Tell me! Will you believe I am your l ord if I RESURRECT YOUR MOTHER AND YOUR FATHER?” The Bedouin will say, “Yes.” At this TWO DEVILS WILL APPEAR IN THE FORMS OF HIS MOTHER AND FATHER… 13

At this, the dajjal will ask the villains he leads; “Now if I kill this man and then bring him back to life, will you then believe in my divinity?” 14

One of his corruptions is this: He will call a single person, kill him AND CUT HIM UP WITH A SAW. That person’s body will be cast away in two pieces. The dajjal will then tell those around him, “Look at this servant I have killed. I SHALL NOW BRING HIM BACK TO LIFE.” 15


Image

As can be seen from the information provided in the hadiths, the dajjal will use false miracles to have people accept his claims to supposed divine status. Less intelligent people will imagine these are literally “miracles.” The fact is, however, that a miracle is a blessing from Allah to His servants. The extraordinary phenomena displayed by the dajjal are mere incitements, in other words, are miracles created by Allah to test people, of the sort seen in unbelievers.

Islam scholars point to these false miracles of the dajjal’s and state that he may employ techniques such as magic or hypnotism. Bediuzzaman has desribed this aspect of the dajjal:

Quote:
And the worst of these, the DAJJAL, POSSESSED OF EXTRAORDINARY EVENTS LINKED TO SPIRITUALISM AND HYPNOSIS, will go even further and declare his false and imaginary divinity (Surely Allah is beyond that)… 16


As stated by Bediuzzaman, the dajjal may deceive people who lack sufficient knowledge or whose faith is weak, using deceptive techniques such a hypnotism and dısplays of magic. The false miracles and deceptions perpetrated by the dajjal, at a time when the whole Christian world is awaiting the return to Earth of the Prophet Jesus (as) and the Jews are awaiting the Messiah, may cause many people to be deceived by the dajjal.


The Dajjal Will Be the Worst Foe of Muslims and the People of the Book

In the hadiths our Prophet (saas) has stated that while the dajjal inflicts disaster on mankind he may appear to be doing good. In one hadith it is stated that:

Quote:
When the dajjal appears, he will bring fire and water with him. But what the people SEE AS FIRE WILL BE FRESH WATER, and what the people SEE AS WATER WILL BE BURNING FIRE. Whoever lives to see that day, let him be willing to fall into what the people see as fire, as that is fresh, cold water. 17


According to the information in the hadith, the dajjal will lead people to “the fire,” in other words, encourage fighting, conflict, war and bloodshed while giving them the idea that he is performing good deeds. As we have already seen, in doing this he will influence people by depicting himself as a spiritual guide or even a prophet. The hadiths indicate that some Christians and Jews will fall under the dajjal’s spell. The dajjal will appear to be benefiting Jews and Jewish society, and will also stage-manage Christians by appearing to benefit them. By the use of this tactic he aims to ruin both sides and inflict terrible defeats on them. Therefore, the dajjal is the greatest enemy of both Christians and Jews.

One hadith reveals that although they know the dajjal is a denier some people will come under his influence through being deceived by worldly gain:

Quote:
Some people will converse with the dajjal. And they will say: “WE KNOW THAT HE IS AN UNBELIEVER; we are his friends so that we can eat his food and benefit from his tree.” When the chastisement of Allah comes, it will come to the dajjal and all of them. 18


True believers who abide by the moral values of the Qur’an and the Sunna of our Prophet (saas), however, will be aware of these ruses of the dajjal’s and will recognize his snares through the light of their faith and will not be taken in by them. Warning people against the violence and bloody terror of the dajjal, and making them aware of these, is a duty of people of conscience.


Freemasonry: The Dajjal’s Secret Army

Image

The Mason shrine in which Mason gatherings take place.


Our Prophet (saas) has indicated that the dajjal will act in secrecy:

Quote:
The dajjal will set out and come first to the gate looking onto the east of the city of Damascus… HE WILL BE SOUGHT, BUT HE WILL NOT BE CAUGHT… He will then be seen by the side of the waters of the river of Jerusalem… HE WILL BE SOUGHT, BUT NOBODY WILL KNOW WHERE HE HAS GONE. 19


It is indicated in the hadith that the dajjal “will be sought, but he will not be caught,” which indicates that he will act in secret. The dajjal will act slowly and deeply, without making people uneasy or drawing attention to himself, until the time comes for him to come out into the open. Throughout this period secrecy will be the most important thing for the dajjal and his followers, and they will secure the support of secret organisations for that purpose. As a requirement of this secrecy, the dajjal will establish and lead secret state organisations and act literally like “an invisible force.” This will enable him to organise corruption in a very underhand manner. Bediuzzaman Said Nursi also noted that the dajjal would attract support from such secret societies as the masons:

Quote:
...THE DAJJAL WILL DECEIVE THE MASONS, and since they gain his SUPPORT they will imagine they have intense dominion… 20


As the Master makes clear, the dajjal will use world freemasonry as a kind of secret army. Secret decisions against Muslims will be taken under the leadership of the dajjal, and these will be put into practice. In fact, the resemblance between the pressure, difficulties and attacks to which Muslims all over the world are exposed is agreed by one and all. This is important evidence that the activities in question are being orchestrated from a single centre. Bediuzzaman Said Nursi has stated that the dajjal will put pressure on the Islamic world and inflict hard and troubled times on devout Muslims:

...Harmful and powerful individuals such as the dajjal will lead hypocrisy and atheism, and will make use of a person’s hypocrisy and desires to wreak confusion among people with little expenditure of effort, and will TAKE THE WHOLE WORLD OF ISLAM CAPTIVE.21


As can be seen from the Master’s statements, the dajjal will unite unbelievers and atheists against Muslims and act as their leader. He will make use of people’s desires and hypocrisy in order to turn them away from the truth, thus causing turmoil and strife.


The Prophet Jesus (as), As a Prophet Who Displays Miracles, Will Put an End to All the Strife of the End Times

Our Prophet (saas) has imparted the glad tidings that all the strife of the End Times, particularly that of the dajjal Messiah, will be eliminated by means of the Prophet Jesus (as). As stated in the hadiths, the Prophet Jesus (as) will return to Earth and confront the dajjal in Jerusalem, and when the dajjal sees him he will “dissolve like salt in water.” Just the Prophet Jesus’ breath will be enough to do away with the strife of the dajjal:

Quote:
At that point, when the DAJJAL, THE ENEMY OF ALLAH, SEES THE MESSIAH, THE PROPHET JESUS (AS), HE WILL DISAPPEAR LIKE SALT DISSOLVING IN WATER. 22

AS THE DAJJAL SPREADS CORRUPTION, ALLAH WILL SEND THE MESSIAH, JESUS SON OF MARYAM (AS)…Every unbeliever COMPREHENDING HIS HEALING POWER will disappear. Jesus (as) will meet the dajjal at the Gate of Lud (near the al- Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem) AND WILL DESTROY HIM.....23


Bediuzzaman explains how the snares and deceptions of the dajjal, and the lies that bring people under his spell, will be eliminated through the Prophet Jesus (as):

Quote:
Only a WONDROUS AND MIRACULOUS INDIVIDUAL ACCEPTED BY THE PEOPLE can eliminate that savage dajjal who protects himself and bewitches everyone through such false miracles as magic and magnetism and spiritualism, and alter the course of his actions, and that individual is the Prophet Jesus (as), the prophet of all mankind. 24


As the Master tells us, since the dajjal deceives people through various false miracles, acts with the support of satan and performs some extraordinary deeds, the dajjal can only be vanquished through the holy Prophet Jesus (as), various of whose miracles our Lord has spoken of. By the will of Allah, the elimination of the strife of the dajjal by the Prophet Jesus (as) will be very quick and easy.

By the literal eradication of the strife of the dajjal and the End Times through the Prophet Jesus (as), the Earth will be filled with justice, security and plenty. Those who mistakenly think that the Prophet Jesus (as) will not return to Earth will certainly suffer a grave defeat in the face of this. These people will both rejoice and also regret what they said in the past when they see how wise the return of the Prophet Jesus (as) is and how the most intractable problems are resolved through him.

Quote:
Allah has written, ‘I will be victorious, I and and My Messengers.’ Allah is Most Strong, All-Mighty. (Surat Al-Mujadala: 21)



IS THE UNDERGROUND OF THIS REGION PREPARED FOR THE COMING OF THE DAJJAL?

Image

It is reported in hadiths that the Prophet Jesus (as) will destroy the Dajjal near the Gate of Lud:


Quote:
Then the Prophet Jesus WILL SEEK OUT THE DAJJAL and eventually catch up with him at the Gate of Lud NEAR THE MASJID AL- AQSA, AND WILL DESTROY HIM.1

Jesus (as) will meet the dajjal at the Gate of Lud (NEAR THE MASJID AL- AQSA IN JERUSALEM), AND WILL MAKE HIM INEFFECTIVE.2


As reported in these hadiths, the fact that the Prophet Jesus (as) will seek the dajjal out is definitive proof that the dajjal will be hiding. Again according to these hadiths, the dajjal will be near Jerusalem. The Bayt al-Maqdis is the name given to the sacred area where the Haram Sharif, which contains the al-Aqsa Mosque, stands. This thus indicates that the centre of the dajjal’s activities will be around the al-Aqsa Mosque.

According to another hadith, the dajjal will emerge “from a rocky place”:

Quote:
.... (Dajjal) will appear from a rocky place, and spread intensive mischief around (by sending troops everywhere).3


Image

Attempts to demolish the al-Aqsa Mosque by various means and the excavations undertaken for that purpose have appeared in many newspapers.


In fact the Haram Sharif region is a structure with a rocky base. The sacred Hajar Muallaq from which our Prophet (saas) embarked on his miraculous journey and on which the Dome of the Rock was subequently erected is also here. The rocky region referred to in the hadith is in all probability the Haram Sharif, with the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque, and the dajjal is in all likelihood hidden there.

The rocky nature of the area means that other areas can be constructed under the al-Aqsa Mosque. As we know, there have been constant excavations under the al-Aqsa Mosque since the mid-1990s. The area where the al-Aqsa Mosque stands is the same area where the Jews maintain that the Temple of Solomon once stood. According to Jewish belief, the temple of Solomon will be rebuilt when the Messiah comes prior to Doomsday. There is a strong likelihood that the dajjal has made use of this belief to build a secret place of worship, saying that he will rebuild the Temple of Solomon. Yet this state of affairs is only temporary.

As for his real objective, this is to tear down the al-Aqsa Mosque and then to announce his own alleged divine status. (Surely Allah is beyond that)


HOW TO PROTECT ONESELF FROM THE DAJJAL

It will only, of course, be possible for true believers to be protected against the dajjal who will lead mankind into terrible strife. As in all periods, at this time, too, Muslims sincerely devoted to Allah need to be unified among themselves and to live fully according to the proper moral values commanded by Him. Almighty Allah reveals this in a verse from the Qur’an:

The believers are brothers, so make peace between your brothers and have fear of Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (Surat Al-Hujurat: 10)

As stated in the above verse, all believers are brothers. However, the brotherhood of believers is one that demands a highly altruistic state of mind. For that reason, believers must be very considerate of one another and hold their brothers’ interests above their own at all times.

Believers must love one and watch out for another for the approval of Allah. Naturally, when faced by such a great strife as that of the dajjal, Muslims must not seek out one another’s flaws or oppose one another over minor details. Qur’anic moral values command that they should embrace one another. The best behaviour will be for there to be no rancour between Muslims, for differences to be overcome in the event that any such exist, and for these to be replaced a warm and sincere climate. In addition, good thoughts and mutual assistance must predominate in dialogues between them, and all differences and negative factors that might give rise to competition and claims of superiority must be eliminated. Muslims must display as much love for one another as possible, cast opposition aside and strive to attain true brotherhood. Believers must exclude nobody, but always seek to win over everyone and lead them in the direction of truth and goodness. In this way, believers can exhibit a structure capable of withstanding the strife of the dajjal.

Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. ( Surat Al-Anfal: 73)
Another very important point is this: the stage we are living through, the End Times, is when people abide by Qur’anic moral values to the letter and are strengthened in their beliefs. An individual or a society deprived of the miracles of the Qur’an and signs leading to faith is referred to as ignorant. The lack of such knowledge in a person who is unable to properly recognise and appreciate the might of Allah has a significant effect. Therefore, the reading of books, visiting Internet sites and watching films about Qur’anic miracles and signs leading to faith will prevent that ignorance and be a means whereby people attain a powerful faith. Allah has revealed in the Qur’an that only the wise, in other words those who live by Qur’anic moral values and know the proofs of Allah’s creation, fear Him as they ought: And mankind and beasts and livestock are likewise of varying colours. Only those of His servants with knowledge have fear of Allah. Allah is Almighty, Ever-Forgiving. (Surah Fatir:28)


When believers apply this scrupulously and encourage people to live by Qur’anic moral values they will, by Allah’s leave, have built the most reliable shield against the strife of the dajjal that will enfold the whole world. This is set out in these terms in the Qur’an:

Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success. (Surah Al ‘Imran :104)

Umm Sharik reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The people would run away from the Dajjal seeking shelter in the mountains. She said: Where would be the Arabs then in that day? He said: They would be small in number.

http://quranmalayalam.com/hadees/abudawud/037.sat.html

Book 37, Number 4281:

Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib is in ruins, the ruined state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes, the outbreak of the great war will be at the conquest of Constantinople and the conquest of Constantinople when the Dajjal (Antichrist) comes forth. He (the Prophet) struck his thigh or his shoulder with his hand and said: This is as true as you are here or as you are sitting (meaning Mu'adh ibn Jabal).

From these two hadiths, it somehow shows that before dajjal comes two things need to happen
1) the destruction of medina
2) the dwindling numbers of arabs

The Antichrist (with bible verses) Matthew 24:3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?" Jesus answered: "Watch out that noone deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. Matthew 24:23 And if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect-if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time.

XTREME - Why are you posting hadeeth without reference? This is not reliable... I don't buy into opinion which use hadeeth that are not backed by references.

Include source, book number, chapter, page etc... otherwise, this is a waste of your time. And more importantly, ours.

So many da'eef hadeeth being used for the wrong reasons and worse, used to build more conspiracy.

From which reference of hadeeth are you talking about Madina being in ruins??? I'll be glad to look more in depth from these "authentic" references.

All I know is that the only 2 great places that will be protected from dajaal is Makkah & Madina.

Waiting to to hearing from you.

I think that Dajjal is on Diego Garcia Island in the Indian Ocean. This is a military base for the USA. It's lies in the Mauritian Island territory but the British (which ruled Mauritius for some decades) left the archipelagos in the hands of the US despite all being done right now to reinstate the islands under Mauritian ownership.

Diego Garcia...google map it and you'll see that there no big deal to see on that part.

This is a personal conviction though coz I live there and know nothing more about the archipelago.

There's also the hadeeth about the day of khalaas, which describes three earthquakes in madina - which could very well lead to madina being in ruins if you think about it. The hadeeth is sahih, a quick search will bring it up.

Just remember, when that happens, and the hypocrites and unbeleivers run out of the city to join up with dajjal - they won't be able to claim the following, even though they'd have the right to:

This is true, however the ruined state of Medina is said to happen before the Dajjal appears. There may still be people living in it on the Day of Khalaas, but at the same time, it would still be in ruins.

Can you cite the source? thanks... I am inclined to disagree simply on the basis that if madina is in ruins - it would be unpopulated - Meaning, everyone would leave due to some natural disaster. The only natural disaster I have found in relation to hadeeth about madinah that is still awaited - are the three earthquakes which will expel the hypocrites and disbelievers from Madina - this clearly implies that Madina will be a populated city.

It is the same hadith that I had referenced before:

Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib is in ruins, the ruined state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes, the outbreak of the great war will be at the conquest of Constantinople and the conquest of Constantinople when the Dajjal comes forth."

He (the Prophet) struck his thigh or his shoulder with his hand and said: "This is as true as you are here or as you are sitting (meaning Mu'adh ibn Jabal)"

(Sunan Abu Dawud, Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim), Book 37, Number 4281)

Therefore, the Jerusalem flourishes, then Yathrib is ruined, then the great war comes, then the conquest of Constantinople happens, and then the Dajjal appears.

Other narrations indicate that Medina would be abandoned in its prime:

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam, said,

“Madinah will be deserted while in its prime! Then, it will be inhabited by birds and beasts.”

It was said: "Who will make them leave, O Abu Hurayrah?" He said: "The evil rulers."

(Al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak, vol. 4, p. 436)


“They (Muslims) will leave Madinah while in its prime. Only wild beasts and birds will roam it. The last persons to be gathered (for the beginning of the Last Day) will be two shepherds from (the tribe) of Muzainah heading towards Madinah. They will be herding their sheep, and (when they reach it) they will find it deserted. When they reach Thaniyyat Al-Wadaa` they will collapse on their foreheads (because the Hour will have started then).”

(Ahmad, Al-Bukhari and Muslim, As-Sililah As-Sahihah, vol. 2, no. 683)

So one reason for its abandonment, is the evil rulers. Another hadith mentions another reason:

al-Qurtubi narrated from Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman [radhiyallahu 'anhu], from the Prophet [sallallahu 'alayhi wa-sallam] that he said:

"Desolation will not begin to overtake the lands of the Earth until Egypt is made desolate, and Egypt will be safe from desolation until al-Basrah is made desolate.

The desolation of al-Basrah will be from flooding, the desolation of Egypt from the drying up of the Nile, the desolation of Makkah and the desolation of al-Madinah from hunger, the desolation of Yemen from locusts, the desolation of al-Ubullah from siege, the desolation of Persia from brigands (Bandits, robbers, plunderes), the desolation of the Turks from the Daylamites (Persians), the desolation of the Daylamites from the Armenians, the desolation of the Armenians from the Khazars, the desolation of the Khazars from the Turks, the desolation of the Turks from lightning strikes, the desolation of Sind from India, the desolation of India from China, the desolation of China from drought, the desolation of the Abyssinians from earthquakes, the desolation of az-Zawra' from the Sufyani, the desolation of ar-Rawha' from being swallowed by the earth, and the desolation of 'Iraq from killing."


(at-Tadhkirah)

In that hadith we see that hunger is a cause. It may that the evil rulers cause hunger, or this may be referring to the 2 different desolations of Medina, which are mentioned in another narration:

al-Qurtubi narrated from Jabir that he heard 'Umar ibn al-Khattab on the minbar saying: "I heard the Messenger of Allah [sallallahu 'alayhi wa-sallam] saying:

"The people of al-Madinah will leave it. Then, they will return to it and inhabit it until it is full. Then, they will leave it, and never return to it ever again."

Jazak-Allah for the clarification.

I will read these through and through and will take these to someone more learnt than I and discuss the hadeeths with the imam/mufti.

Madina is said to be in a state of desolation even today... there is a thread that LaMagrehbin has posted a few threads up from this one, in which in his first post - it is decribed that Madina is in a state of desolation right now.

An interesting comaparison.
