      Hadith – Bukhari 9.241, Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar

      Allah’s Apostle(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) 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 not.”

      Hadith – Bukhari 9.504, Narrated Abdullah

      Ad-Dajjal was mentioned in the presence of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). The Prophet PBUH said “Allah is not hidden from you; He is not one-eyed,”, and pointed with his hand towards his eye, adding, “said, “While Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye and his eye looks like a protruding grape.”

      The Signs

      Hadith – Muslim #7025, Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As

      I committed to memory a hadith from Allah’s Apostle صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم and I did not forget it after I had heard Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: The first sign (out of the 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 after that.

      Hadith – Muslim #7015, Narrated An-Nawwas ibn Sam’an

      Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) 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:

      We said: Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) 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 trees.

      So he said:

      We said: Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) , how long will he stay on Earth?

      He said: For forty 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 (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) will one day’s prayer suffice for the prayers of the day equal to one year?

      Thereupon he said:

      We said: Allah’s apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) how quickly will he walk upon the earth?

      Thereupon he (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: Like cloud 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).

      It 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.

      Jesus 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 Apostle , 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 wills.

      Then 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 them.

      Hadith – Abu Dawood #4305, Narrated Imran ibn Husayn

      The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: 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.

      Conquest of Constantinople

      Hadith – Abu Dawood #4283, Narrated Abdullah ibn Busr

      The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: 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 Jabal

      The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: The greatest war, the conquest of Constantinople and the coming forth of the Dajjal (Antichrist) will take place within a period of seven months.

      Dajjal will Perish

      Hadith – Muslim #3187, Narrated AbuHurayrah

      Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: 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.

      Dajjal’s Followers

      Hadith – Muslim #7034, Narrated Anas ibn Malik

      Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls.

      Reward from Allah for being the Dajjal’s enemy

      Hadith – Abu Dawood #4232, Narrated Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman

      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 next? He (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: The Last Hour will come.

      Protection from the Trial of the Dajjal

      Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi #2146, Narrated AbudDarda’

      Allah’s Messenger(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said, “He who recites three verses at the beginning of al-Kahf will be protected from the trial of the Dajjal.”

      [Tirmidhi transmitted it, saying this is a hasan sahih tradition.]
