Hadith - Bukhari 9.245, Narrated Abu Said
One day Allah's Apostle
narrated to us a long narration about Ad-Dajjal and
among the things he narrated to us, was: "Ad-Dajjal
will come, and he will be forbidden to enter the mountain passes of Medina.
He will encamp in one of the salt areas neighboring Medina and there will
appear to him a man who will be the best or one of the best of the people.
He will say 'I testify that you are Ad-Dajjal whose story Allah's Apostle
has told us.' Ad-Dajjal will say (to his audience), 'Look, if I kill this
man and then give him life, will you have any doubt about my claim?' They
will reply, 'No,' Then Ad-Dajjal will kill that man and then will make him
alive. The man will say, 'By Allah, now I recognize you more than ever!'
Ad-Dajjal will then try to kill him (again) but he will not be given the
power to do so."

mountain passes of Medina (so that) neither plague nor Ad-Dajjal can enter

stood up amongst the people and then praised and glorified
Allah as He deserved and then he mentioned Ad-Dajjal, saying,
"I warn you of him, and there was no prophet but warned
his followers of him; but I will tell you something about him which no prophet
has told his followers: Ad-Dajjal is one-eyed whereas Allah is
Hadith - Bukhari 9.504, Narrated Abdullah
Ad-Dajjal was mentioned in the presence of the Prophet
. The Prophet
said, "Allah is not hidden from
you; He is not one-eyed," and pointed with his hand towards his eye,
adding, "While Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right
eye and his eye looks like a protruding grape."
Hadith - Bukhari 9.245, Narrated Anas
said, "No prophet was sent but
that he warned his followers against the one-eyed liar (Ad-Dajjal). Beware!
He is blind in one eye, and your Lord is not so, and there will be written
between his (Ad-Dajjal's) eyes (the word) Kafir (i.e., disbeliever)."
(This Hadith is also quoted by Abu Huraira and Ibn

So when the sun will rise and
the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace
Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,) 'No good will it
do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good
(by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.' (6.158) And the Hour will
be established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they
will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established
when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will
not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing
a tank (for his livestock) is able to water (his animals) in it; and the
Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel (of food) to his
mouth but will not be able to eat it."
Hadith - Muslim #7015, Narrated An-Nawwas ibn
mentioned of the Dajjal one day in the morning.
He sometimes described him as insignificant and sometimes described (his
turmoil) as very significant (and we felt) as if he were in the cluster of
the date-palm trees. When we went to him (to the Holy Prophet) in the evening
and he read (the signs of fear) on our faces, he said:
What is the matter with you?
We said: Allah's Apostle
you mentioned the Dajjal this morning (sometimes
describing him) as insignificant and sometimes very important, until we began
to think he was present in some (nearly) part of the cluster of the date-palm
So he said:
I harbour fear in regard to you in so many other things
besides the Dajjal. If he comes forth while I am among you, I shall contend
with him on your behalf, but if he comes forth while I am not among you,
a man must contend on his own behalf and Allah will take care of every Muslim
on my behalf (and safeguard him against his evil). He (the Dajjal) will be
a young man with twisted, cropped hair, and a blind eye. I compare him with
AbdulUzza ibn Qatan. He who among you will survive to see him should recite
over him the opening verses of Surah al-Kahf (xviii). He will appear on the
way between Syria and Iraq and will spread mischief right and left. O servant
of Allah! Adhere (to the path of Truth).
We said: Allah's Apostle
, how long will he stay on Earth?
days, one day like a year, one day like a month, one day like a week, and
the rest of the days will be like your days.
We said: Allah's Apostle
will one day's prayer suffice for the prayers
of the day equal to one year?
said: No, but you must
make an estimate of the time (and then observe prayer).
We said: Allah's apostle
how quickly will he walk upon the earth?
driven by the wind. He will come to the people and invite them (to a wrong
religion); they will affirm their faith in him and respond to him. He will
then give a command to the sky: there will be rainfall upon the Earth and
it will grow crops. Then in the evening, their pasturing animals will come
to them with their humps very high, their udders full of milk and their flanks
distended. He will then come to another people and invite them. But they
will reject him so he will go away from them; they will have a drought and
nothing will be left with them in the form of wealth. He will then walk through
the desert and say to it: Bring forth your treasures. The treasures will
come out and gather before him like a swarm of bees. He will then call someone
in the flush of youth, strike him with the sword, cut him into two pieces
and (make these pieces lie at the distance which is generally between the
archer and his target. He will then call (that young man) and he will come
forward laughing with his face gleaming (with happiness).
will at this very time that Allah will send Christ, son of Mary. He will
descend at the white minaret on the eastern side of Damascus, wearing two
garments lightly dyed with saffron and placing his hands on the wings of
two Angels. When he lowers his head, there will fall beads of perspiration
from his head, and when he raises it up, beads like pearls will scatter from
it. Every non-believer who smells the odour of his body will die and his
breath will reach as far as he is able to see. He will then search for him
(Dajjal) until he catches hold of him at the gate of Ludd and kills him.
Then a people whom Allah had protected will come to Jesus, son of Mary, and
he will wipe their faces and inform them of their ranks in Paradise. It will
be under such conditions that Allah will reveal to Jesus these words: I have
brought forth from among My servants such people against whom none will be
able to fight; you take these people safely to Tur, and then Allah will send
Gog and Magog and they will swarm down from every slope. The first of them
will pass the lake of Tiberias and drink out of it. And when the last of
them passes, he will say: There was once water there.
and his companions will then be besieged here (at Tur, and they will be so
hard pressed) that the head of the ox will be dearer to them than one hundred
dinars. Allah's Apostle
, Jesus, and his companions
will supplicate Allah, Who will send to them insects (which will attack their
necks) and in the morning they would perish as one single person. Allah's
, Jesus, and his companions,
then come down to Earth and they will not find on Earth as much space as
a single span that is not filled with putrefaction and stench. Allah's Apostle
, Jesus, and his companions
will then beseech Allah who will send birds whose necks would be like those
of Bactrian camels and they will carry them away and throw them where Allah
will send rain which no house of mud-bricks or (tent of) camel-hair will
keep out and it will wash the Earth until it resembles a mirror. Then the
Earth will be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing and,
as a result thereof, there will grow (such a big) pomegranate that a group
of people will be able to eat it and seek shelter under its skin, a dairy
cow will give so much milk that a whole party will be able to drink it. The
milking camel will give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe
will be able to drink from it, and the milking-sheep will give so much milk
that the whole family will be able to drink from it. At that time Allah will
send a pleasant wind which will soothe (people) even under their armpits.
He will take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked will survive who
will commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to
Hadith - Abu Dawood #4305, Narrated Imran ibn
Let him who hears of
the Dajjal (Antichrist) go far from him for I swear by Allah that a man will
come to him thinking he is a believer and follow him because of confused
ideas roused in him by him.
Hadith - Abu Dawood #4283, Narrated Abdullah
The time between the
great war and the conquest of the city (Constantinople) will be six years,
and the Dajjal (Antichrist) will come forth in the seventh.
Hadith - Abu Dawood #4282, Narrated Mu'adh ibn
The greatest war, the
conquest of Constantinople and the coming forth of the Dajjal (Antichrist)
will take place within a period of seven months.

Hadith - Abu Dawood #4232, Narrated Hudhayfah
Then the Antichrist (Dajjal)
will come forth accompanied by a river and fire. He who falls into his fire
will certainly receive his reward, and have his load taken off him, but he
who falls into his river will have his load retained and his reward taken
off him. I then asked: What will come

I committed to memory a hadith from Allah's Apostle
and I did not forget it after I had heard Allah's

signs of the appearance of the Dajjal) would be the appearance of the sun
from the west, the appearance of the beast before the people in the forenoon
and which of the two happens first, the second one would follow immediately
Hadith - Muslim #3187, Narrated AbuHurayrah
Dajjal will come from
the eastern side with the intention of attacking Medina until he will get
down behind Uhud. Then the angels will turn his face towards Syria and there
he will perish.
Hadith - Muslim #6924, Narrated AbuHurayrah
Hour will not come until the Romans land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army
consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people on Earth at that time will
come from Medina (to oppose them). When they arrange themselves in ranks,
the Romans will say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took
prisoners from among us. Let us fight them. The Muslims will say: Nay, by
Allah, we shall never turn aside from you and from our brethren so that you
may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army, whom
Allah will never forgive, will run away. A third (part of the army), which
will be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah's eyes, would be killed.
The third who will never be put on trial will win and they will be the conquerors
of Constantinople. As they are busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst
themselves) after hanging their swords by the olive trees, Satan will cry:
The Dajjal has taken your place among your families. They will then come
out, but it will be of no avail. When they reach Syria, he will come out
while they are still preparing themselves for battle, drawing up the ranks.
Certainly, the time of prayer will come and then Jesus (peace be upon him),
son of Mary, descend and will lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah
see him, it will (disappear) just as salt dissolves in water and if he (Jesus)
were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely.
Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his
lance (the lance of Jesus Christ).
