Dajjal/Anti-Christ by Salem Al-Amry

Salem Al-Amry gives a concise account about an important topic which pertains to one of the Major Signs of the Last Day. This is an excellent and very important subject that every Muslim needs to know, O' Ummah of Muhammad [Peace Be Upon Him].

The Prophet (peace be upon him) described the Dajjal in great detail. Through his description we know what the Dajjal will look like, where he will first appear, who will follow him, what he will do once he gets here, and how he will be killed. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

I have told you so much about the Dajjal (Antichrist) that I am afraid you may not understand. The Antichrist 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. (Abu Dawood)

We know that he will be a man. He will be blind in one eye. His hair will be curly and he will be short. The believers, whether literate or illiterate, will be able to read the letters kaaf, faa, raa (spelling kaafir or "disbeliever"), written between his two eyes.

The Dajjal will claim to be Messiah and then claim to be Allah, Himself. He will perform miracles. He will traverse the earth in short periods of time. He will exert control over weather patterns, sending down rain upon those who believe in him. He will exert a similar influence over crops and livestock. He will only be able to do this because Allah, in all of His Power and Wisdom, will allow him to do so, not because the Dajjal has any power unto himself. He will serve as a massive trial for humanity.

The Dajjal is a reality and we are blessed to have so much ahadith concerning it and warning us about it; such as:

        Account of the dajjal and his features and what would be along with him

        the characteristic of the dajjal and a ban on his entry to medina and his killing of a believer and then restoring him to life

        the dajjal would be very insignificant in the eye of Allah, the majestic and glorious

        the appearance of the dajjal and his stay upon the earth and the descent of Jesus and his killing him (dajjal) and the departure of good people of strong conviction and the survival of the wicked people and the worship of idols and the blowing of the trumpet and the raising up from the graves

        the hadith pertaining to the spy of the dajjal

Salim al-Amry is from the United Arab Emirates. He is a Computer Engineer by profession, however has spent a major part of his youth studying under different scholars. He has taken the effort to obtain knowledge of the different sciences of Islam including Aqidah, Usool, Hadeeth, Fiqh, Tafseer, Arabic language and more. His teachers include: Shaikh Ali Khashshan and Shaikh Mahmood 'Atiyyah, who were two of the first students of Shaikh Albani and under both Shaikh Salem Al-Amry studied Aqidah.
