Before commencing this write-up I was in a state of confusion. The recent bombardment of flotilla loaded with humanitarian aid by the Isreali soldiers, that which was headed to Palestine (land of Prophets) left us shocked and aggrieved. Indeed inhuman and ruthless. The incident should not surprise us as Jews are know for this kind of terrorism. This very fact inspired me to throw some light on the dark history of Jews, filled with treachery and deciet. Flipping through pages of various books, study materials, browsing through various websites it is manifested that Dajjal (the dark Messiah) will be of Jewish origin.
Dajjal will emerge from a place between Syria and Iraq, his emergance will be known when he is in Isfahaan at a place called Judea (Yahudea). Before the advent of Dajjal, a system shall appear, the Dajjal system. This system shall promote immoral and indecent practices like homosexuality, adultery, fornication, fitnah of pen (Pornography, explicit writings etc), increased alcohol consumption. The Dajjal system will be the most evil and most corrupt system in the history ever. In a Hadith narrated by Imran ibn Hussain RA, the Prophet PBUH said, ‘Since the birth of Adam till the advent of (Judgement Day) there is no fitnah (tribulation) much greater than that of Dajjal’.
Now the fact that all the practices of Dajjal system are evident let us dig deeper to unearth more information about Dajjal (Anti-Christ). According to the traditions of Prophet PBUH Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) narrates from the Last Prophet PBUH regarding Dajjal’s physical appearance, ‘…red complexioned, fat, curly haired man, blind in the right eye which looks like a bulging grape.’(Sahih Bukhari). On another ocassion Prophet said ‘Dajjal will be blind in the right eye. He will have thick hair on his body and he will also have Paradise and Hell with him. Though his Paradise will appear as Jannah (heaven), in reality it will be Hell, and likewise, though his Hell will appear like Jahannnam (hell), in reality it will be Paradise.’ (Sahih Muslim). He would try to mislead people to his worship. The controverts will be thrown into his hell and harmonisers shall enter his paradise. He will posses supernatural powers in him. He will travel by a gigantic mule at a lightning speed. He will be empowered to cause drought and famine upon those who disapprove. Furthermore he will have divine ability to cause frequent earthquakes.
According to the many Ahaadith describing Dajjal, the most distinguishing feature of his face besides the bulging eye will be the Arabic letters Kaaf (k), Faa (f), Raa (r), on his forehead. These letters spell Kufr (disbelief). All believers, regardless of their literacy will decipher these letters.
Dajjal would try to convince people that he is their God. He would not leave even a single stone unturned in deviating people from right path. He would do so by killing a person and then re-creating the same again. These actions would be more than sufficient to incite people to deviate from mainstream.
The Jew community will ascertain Dajjal as their ‘Messiah’. Hence they are anxiously awaiting for his emergence. Scriptures mention that most of the Jews would follow him. Women are a soft target for him. We infer that Jews will never cease to inflict atrocities (specially upon Muslims) since their very essence is based on the falsehood and their future is associated with Dajjal. Narrated by Anas Ibn Malik (RadiAllahuanhu) ALLAH’s apostle PBUH said, The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls. [Sahih Muslim #7034].
Although our prophet had explicitly outlined Dajjal’s characterisistics, he was not certain that his ummah had understood completely. Why wouldnt he be afraid as the Fitnah or the trial that is so grave that one cannot imagine it. Narrated by Ubadah Ibn as-Samit (radiAllahu anhu) that The Prophet PBUH said, “I have told you so much about the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) that I am afraid you may not understand. The Anti-Christ is short, hen-toed, woolly-haired, one-eyed, an eye-sightless, and neither protruding nor deep-seated. If you are confused about him, know that your Lord is not one-eyed.” [Sunan of Abu-Dawud #4306]
