The Arrival Of Dajjal And The Protection OF True Believers
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

All the Abrahamic religions believe in the Judgment day when everything in the world will cease to function as it normally does and the court of Judgment will be set. Pertaining to the end of the world or the judgment day, there are different predictions and signs in every religion. One of the prime signs of the nearing of Judgment Day mentioned in Islam is the arrival of Dajjal.

Dajjal is one of the greatest debates among Islamic scholar circles, where they argue whether the arrival of Dajjal is a philosophical or realistic phenomenon. That issue aside, the lines below discuss the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) about the arrival of Dajjal.

“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,’ The 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 power to do so.” (Bukhari)

In this hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) the fact is asserted that the arrival of Dajjal is inevitable and he will surely arrive before the end of days. Moreover, the second important thing that this hadith explains is the fact that Dajjal will not be allowed to enter Madina and he will camp outside Madina, thus it is clear that the objective of Dajjal will be to attack the hub of Muslims.

This hadith also points towards the fact that Dajjal will definitely gain following and there will be a large number of people who will follow him in his quest. Moreover, the hadith also presents the fact that although Dajjal will rule, but there will be a righteous person who will stand in front of him and tell him that his arrival had been foretold by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and this person wont yield to the tyranny of Dajjal. Furthermore, when Dajjal would try to kill him, he will be protected by Allah Almighty.

This hadith of Prophet (PBUH) shows that the arrival of Dajjal is inevitable, he will gain followers, wage war against Muslims but those who are righteous would stand in front of him and they will be protected by Allah Almighty. Hence, for a Muslim it is imperative to firm the belief in Allah Almighty so that whenever the calamity of Dajjal strikes, a Muslim is ready to stand against him and be among those who are protected by Allah Almighty.
