Dajjal is a being created by Allah (SWT) in His wisdom. And when Allah created Dajjal, Allah endowed Dajjal with awesome power and versatility.
Dajjal means one who conceals falsehood, a falsifier, one who deceives, deludes, beguiles, circumvents. The word also means “To smear the whole body of camel with tar”. Thus according to this meaning Dajjal would mean a great falsifier who would cover the whole earth with conceit and delusion and infidelity or with his beguiled adherents as tar covers the body. According to another version, he would be called Dajjal because he will travel to most regions of the earth. There is a good deal of difference of opinion about the personality of Dajjal and this has raised much academic delusion about it. However it is certain that at the approach of the last age, a great deceiver would rise and by his vicious tricks he would lead people towards evil from the path of righteousness.
Prophet (SA:) said, “Every Prophet has warned their people about Dajjal. Prophet Noah warned his people about Dajjal (Indicating that Dajjal was created a long time ago). But I will tell you something that no other Prophet has said before me. Dajjal is One Eyed, he is blind on the right eye. but your Lord is not One Eyed.” (Sahih Muslim)
Khidr said to Moses, “Surely you would not be able to show patience with me. Indeed, how can you show patience in respect of that which lies beyond your comprehension (since you can temporarily see with only one eye, and consequently can access only external empirical knowledge)?”
(Sūrah al-Kahf, 18:66-67)
[Those who see with one eye (the external eye) can never be patient enough to learn from those like Khidr, who see with two eyes, i.e., the external and the internal. Dajjal’s epistemological attack on mankind renders them internally blind and, hence, easily deceived by ‘external appearance’ while remaining incapable of penetrating ‘internal reality’ in all that pertains to his mysterious mission. They sometimes lose faith in Allah Most High and become profoundly misguided without being even conscious of such. Nearly always, however, they lack the capacity to understand either the movement of history or the role that Jerusalem and the Holy Land play in the End of History. The Qur’an declares of such people that they have a status akin to “cattle”.
-'Surah Kahf And The Modern Age': Sheikh Imran Hosein]
In the last age Dajjal will be released. When Dajjal is released on earth, he will have a general mission, and he will have a specific mission. His general mission is to test all mankind if they have any faith. All those who fail his test are heading for the Hell fire. His test will be an awesomely difficult test.
Prophet SA: said, “The greatest FITNA (test/trial) that mankind will experience from the time of Adam (A:) till the last day, is the Fitna of Dajjal.” (Sahih Muslim)
So this is not a subject to play around with. It is a very serious subject. Dajjal will not only test mankind, he also has a specific mission. His mission is to impersonate Al-Massih; and to get Bani Israel to believe that he is Al-Massih. So in order to understand Dajjal in his capacity as Al-Massih Dajjal, we need to understand who or what is Al-Massih.
After he life time of Nabi Musa (A:), Bani Israel migrated to the Holy Land which Allah had given to them. Nabi Dawood (A:) established the state of Israel (He was a Muslim, so this was an Islamic state of Israel), and then Nabi Suleiman (A:) had raised it until it became the most magnificent state that history had ever witnessed. After Suleiman (A:) built the Masjid, Bani Israel had experienced the golden age. During and after the life time of Prophet Suleiman (A:) Bani Israel started committing the misdeeds (Such as Black Magic), they violated the trust with Allah, for which Allah (SWT) expelled them from the Holy Land.
On the first occasion in 587 BCE, a Babylonian army led by Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem, then burned the city, murdered its inhabitants, destroyed the Masjid built by Suleiman (‘Alaihi al-Salaam), and carried the cream of the Jewish population into slavery in Babylon. The Prophet Jeremiah had warned them that this would happen (Jeremiah: 32:36), exactly as Allah, the Supreme, had declared in the Qur’an that He never destroys a people before sending a warning to them (Qur’an, Surah Al-Isra, 17:15)
The reason for this punishment was among black magic, they also committed the greatest sin of all Shirk. They changed Allah’s words in the Torah and rewrote the Torah. What Allah most Supreme made Haram (prohibited), they made it Halal (permissible). By rewriting the Torah they made it permissible for them to lend money on Interest to those who were not Jews yet it was prohibited to charge interest to Jews:
“Thou shalt not lend on interest to thy brother (Jew); whether it be lending money on interest, or lending commodities on interest (because commodities were sometimes used as money) or lending on interest anything which is lent on interest (i.e., anything which functions as money). Unto a stranger (i.e., one who is not a Jew) you may lend on interest…”
(Deuteronomy , 23:19-20)
Allah then sent in the Babylonian army. And that Babylonian army destroyed the state of Israel. Destroyed the Masjid, and took Bani Israel into slavery in Babylon (Modern day Iraq). So the golden age had come to an end. While Bani Israel was there in Babylon, weeping by the rivers of Babylon, Allah (SWT) sent prophets to them. Among the Prophets was Danial (A:) . when these Prophets came to Bani Israel in Babylon, these Prophets told Bani Israel about a promise from Allah. The promise was that Allah was going to send to them a Prophet who would be a special Prophet. Because this Prophet will bring back the Golden Age. The Golden Age was when Suleiman (A:) and the state of Israel ruled the world. And when this Prophet comes he will bring that back, he will rule the world from Jerusalem. The special Prophet known to Bani Israel was Al-Massih.
In order for the Messiah to bring back the Golden Age the implications are:
He will first have to liberate the Holy Land from non Jewish rule.
He will have to bring Bani Israel back to the Holy Land.
He will have to restore the state of Israel.
He will have to restore the Dinar (Gold Coin), and the Dirham (Silver Coin) which was used at the time of David and Solomon (A:).
Israel must grow until it becomes the ruling state of the world. And that Messiah must rule the world from Jerusalem.
Only then the Golden Age of Suleiman (A:) will return. When Allah (SWT) had fulfilled His promise, and sent AL-Massih (the Messiah), in the person of Isa (A:), Bani Israel rejected him. They rejected him because they declared he was a Bastard (Nawzubillah...). And then later on before their very eyes when they saw him die on the cross, even though Isa (A:) himself claimed that he was the Messiah, and although there were some Jews who believed in him, that he was the true Messiah, after the crucifixion it was confirmed that he could not have been the Messiah. Why?
He is dead. The Holy Land has not been liberated. It is still under Roman rule.
He is dead, the state of Israel has not been restored.
He is dead, the state of Israel has not risen to be the ruling state of the world.
He is dead, and he did not rule the world from Jerusalem.
Finally they boasted of how they killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary (but Allah, the All-Powerful, saved him from death):
“That they said (in boast): We killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.”
(Qur’an, al-Nisa, 4:157)
Surah Al-Isra of the Qur’an, describes this. Twice Bani Israel committed Fasad in the Holy Land. Fasad is not just corruption; Fasad is a corruption that is destructive in nature.
On the second occasion they were again expelled from the Holy Land because of their killing of the Prophets of Allah (see Qur’an, al-Baqarah, 2:61).
They killed Zakariah (‘Alaihi al-Salaam) in the Masjid. Yahiya (‘Alaihi al-Salaam), his son, was killed by deception. Isa (‘Alaihi al-Salaam) referred to this killing of the Prophets, and he minced no words in his fierce condemnation of this heinous crime:
“And We gave warning to Banu Israil through revelation, that twice would they corrupt the (Holy) Land and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)! When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants who were capable of terrible warfare. They entered the very in most parts of your homes, and it was a warning fulfilled. And after a time We allowed you to prevail against them once again, and aided you with wealth and offspring, and made you more numerous.
If you persevere in doing good you will do so for your own good; whereas if you commit evil you will (yourself) bear the consequences.
And so when the prediction of the second (period of wickedness) came true, (We raised new enemies against you and allowed them) to disgrace you utterly, and to enter the Temple as (their forerunners) had entered it once before, and to destroy with utter destruction all that they had conquered.”
(Qur’an, Al-Isra, 17:4-7)
It was after this that Allah Most High punished them for the second time. A Roman army led by General Titus besieged Jerusalem in 70CE. Titus destroyed the city of Jerusalem, murdered the inhabitants and expelled the remnant of Jews from the Holy Land. The Masjid was again destroyed and soldiers tore it apart, stone by stone, in
search of melted gold exactly as Isa (‘Alaihi al-Salaam) had warned and prophesied
"Not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down."
(See Qur’an, Banu Israil, 17:4-7):
So they are waiting for the Messiah to come. What they did not know, but we the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (SA:) know, that Isa (A:) (Jesus) was indeed the true Al-Massih. When they thought that he was dead that they crucified him, he was not crucified. Allah (SWT) made it appear that he was being crucified, and Allah raised him. So he did not experience something called Mauth (Death). And since Allah says in the Qur’an, every soul must taste Mauth, and that has not happened to Prophet Isa (A:), therefore he will return.
Since Bani Israel are still waiting for Al-Massih to come, and they still boast about how they killed Jesus, Prophet Muhammad (SA:) informed us, in the last age Allah will send a Being created by Allah, who will impersonate Al-Massih (Jesus the son of Mary). Dajjal will convince Bani Israel that he is delivering the return of the Golden Age. Dajjal will deceive the Bani Israel because he is not the true Al-Massih. And although it would appear for them, it would not really be the return of the Golden Age. And so Dajjal has been endowed with awesome powers of deception. This is of course meaning of the word itself ‘DAJJAL’.
If Dajjal is to deceive Bani Israel, and get them to be convinced that he is indeed the true Messiah, look at what he would have to do.
He will have to liberate the Holy Land of non Jewish rule.
He will have to bring Bani Israel back to the Holy Land.
He will have to restore the state of Israel.
He will have to bring back the Gold Coin and the Silver Coin that was used at the time Of Dawood and Suleiman (A:)
He will have to take the state of Israel, to that status, where it will become the ruling state in the world, and he himself will have to rule the world from Jerusalem.
The Prophet (SA:) said, “. . he (Dajjal) would live on earth (after Allah Most High releases him) for a period of forty days, one day (being) like a year, one day like a month, one day like a week, and all his days (i.e., all the rest of his days) like your days”.
(Narrated by al-Nawwās ibn Sama’ān and recorded in Sahīh Muslim)
What is the meaning of “your days?”
[Some scholars of Islam have most unfortunately been deceived, because of the profound intellectual impact of modern Euro-Christian and Euro-Jewish western colonial rule over the world of Islam, into embracing a ‘Protestant’ version of Islam. As a result they see with only ‘one’ eye, the ‘external’, and are either unwilling to, or incapable of interpreting any sacred text pertaining to time beyond its literal meaning. Such scholars would insist that somewhere on earth, if we
would only search well enough, we could find a place where a single ‘Day’, as we know a ‘Day’, can last for as long as a ‘Year’, as we know a ‘Year’. We could also find a place where a ‘day’ can last for a ‘Month’, and another for a ‘Week’; and that when Allah Most High releases him into the world, if we continue our search in those places, we should eventually be able to locate Dajjāl. Unfortunately the nearest that we can approach to this explanation is at the north and south poles where we can experience six months of continuous light and another six of continuous darkness. But that phenomenon cannot explain the Hadīth.
The authentic Sūfi Shuyūkh (Shaikhs) of Islam have been, for more than a thousand years, spiritual luminaries who penetrated the very heart of the religious way of life, and like Khidr (‘Alaihi al-Salām), they saw with ‘two’ eyes, i.e., the external and internal. (Imam al-Ghazzali is one of them.) Because of the depth of faith they had attained they were able to comprehend the reality of time. Following the path of Khidr (‘Alaihi al-Salām) we have applied the Sufi epistemology of internal intuitive spiritual insight to the interpretation of religious symbolism (t’awīl al-Ahadīth). Consequently, we have dismissed the view that any amount of searching at the poles, or anywhere else on earth, could result in Dajjāl ever being located on earth. Rather, we hold the view that the only place on earth that a believer would ever be able to see and recognize Dajjāl in person is in the Holy Land. It would of course be at the very end of his evil reign over the world when ‘his day’ would be like ‘our day’ and, hence, when he would be in our dimension of time. Perhaps it is because of special divine blessings conferred uponthe Holy Land that the passage from different dimensions of time to our time has often taken place there. This would explain why Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) had to be taken to Jerusalem in order to be raised to the Samāwāt (i.e., the seven strata of space and time, other than our own, that Allah Most High fashioned after having created the earth and all within it, for the benefit of mankind. (See Qur’ān, al-Baqarah, 2:29).That there is more to ‘time’ than that which is literally understood is also clear from the following statement of the blessed Prophet (Sallalahu 'alaihi wa sallam):
“Narrated Abu Dhar: I asked, O Allah's Messenger! Which Masjid was first built on the surface of the earth? He replied, al-Masjid al-Harām (in Makkah). I (then) asked, which was built next? He replied, The Masjid of al- Aqsā (in Jerusalem). I (then) asked, what was the period of time which elapsed between the constructions of the two? He said, Forty years. He added, wherever (you may be, and) the prayer time becomes due, perform the prayer there, for the best thing is to do so (i.e. to offer the prayers on time).”
If we understand ‘time’ (forty years) in this Hadīth literally then the Hadīth would be manifestly false. It requires just a little reflection for one to understand that the blessed Messenger of Allah (Sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was not referring in this Hadīth to a ‘year’ in the sense of twelve lunar months. When he spoke in this Hadīth of that period of ‘forty’ years, and when he referred in the Hadīth concerning Dajjāl, to a ‘day’ like a ‘year’, he was not referring to a ‘year’ as we know a ‘year’. Well then, we ask, what kind of a ‘year’ was he referring to when he described a period of time that history has recorded as more than a thousand years long, to be just ‘forty’ years in duration? It is impossible for the statement concerning the 40-day lifespan of Dajjāl on earth (or the forty years which elapsed between the building of the two Masājid) to be understood if we limit ourselves to our human notion of ‘time’. Such is derived from our sense perception of ‘night’ and of ‘day’ and of the movement of the sun and the moon. Those bound to the western epistemology cannot interpret it, though quantum physics might shed some light on the matter. Nor can the Ahadīth concerning Dajjāl etc., be understood by those who are imprisoned in the literal interpretation of that which ought to be symbolically interpreted. In fact, it is only the Sufi epistemology that can unlock the subject of Dajjāl!
We can understand literally ‘a day (youm) which would be like our day (youm)’. Such a ‘day’ (youm) would comprise a ‘night’ (lail) and the following ‘day’ (nahār), in other words from ‘sunset’ to‘sunset’. Dajjāl would be in our dimension of time, in ‘days like our days’, when he would be at the end of his life on earth. That is quite clear! Whoever is in our dimension of time must, it would appear, also be in our dimension of space. This is what the historical record indicates. We have no evidence in history of anyone being in our dimension of time but not in our dimension of space. Because of Dajjāl being in our dimension of time, as well as space, at the end of his life on earth, it would be possible for us to see him in Jerusalem. The question which arises is: where on earth would Dajjāl be during the period of a ‘day like a year’, and then a ‘day like a month’ and finally, a ‘day like a week’? The second question is how long would ‘a day like a year’ last – then ‘a day like a month’ – then, ‘a day like a week’? This important chapter of the book attempts to respond to those questions.
-'Surah Kahf And The Modern Age': Sheikh Imran Hosein]
When Dajjal’s day is like our day he will be in our dimension of time. But prior to that he would not be in our dimension of time because his days would not be like our days. When he is in our dimension of time, it would be possible for us to see him. At that time he would appear as a human being. Not a system, not a civilization, he would appear as human being when the rest of his days is like our days. He would be a Jew. A young man, powerfully built, with curly hair.
But what about prior to that when he will not be in our dimension of time? Where will he be when his day is like a year? He will be on earth, but we will not be able to see him. The Angels are here on earth, each one of us has two angels on our shoulders. They are on earth, but are they in our dimension of time? No they are not. They do not perform Salah according to our time table. Can angel come in to our dimension of time so we can see the angel? Yes Jibrael (A:) came as a human being right in the masjid in front of Prophet (SA:).
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar ibn al-Khattāb: My father, Umar ibn al-Khattāb, told me: One day we were sitting in the Masjid when there appeared before us a man dressed in pure white clothes, his hair extraordinarily black. There were no signs of travel on him. None amongst us recognized him. He eventually sat with the Apostle (peace be upon him). He knelt before him, placed his palms on his thighs, and (proceeded to ask five questions) . . . .(The narrator of the Hadīth, Umar ibn al-Khattāb) said: Then he (the inquirer) went on his way but I stayed with him (the Holy Prophet) for a long while. He then asked me: Umar, do you know who this inquirer was? I replied: Allah and His Apostle know best. He (the Holy Prophet) remarked: He was Gabriel (the Angel). He came to you in order to instruct you in matters of religion.
The above Hadith qualifies as one of the most amazing events in history in which an angel assumed human form while entering our dimension of time where we exist, hence become visible for human beings.
Are there Jinn living on earth? Yes there are. Are they in our dimension of time? No they are not. But can they enter in our dimension of time? Yes, Mr Shaytan himself, Iblis he came as an old Arab man with a stick, at the gathering assembled by Quraish to form late policy which would solve their problem caused by Prophet (SA:).
[The Qur’ān has also described the event in which a man passed by a ‘town’ that was lying in ruins (i.e., Jerusalem) and wondered sceptically how could Allah Most High revive that ‘town’. Whereupon Allah caused him to die (metaphorically) for a hundred years and then revived him to ask him how long he had tarried there.
His response was “a day or part of a day”:
Or (take) the similitude of one who passed by a town, all in ruins to its roofs. He asked, “How shall Allah bring it (ever) to life, after (this) its death?” but Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him up (again). He asked, “How long didst thou tarry (thus)?” He replied, “(Perhaps) a day or part of a day.” He responded, “Nay, thou hast tarried thus a hundred years; but look at thy food and thy drink, they show no signs of age; and look at thy donkey. And that We may make of thee a sign unto the people, Look further at the bones, how We bring them together and clothe them with flesh.” When this was shown clearly to him, he said: “I know that Allah hath power over all things.”
(Qur’ān, al-Baqarah, 2:259)
There is a remarkable description of the proximity of different dimensions of time right here on earth in the same passage of the Qur’ān quoted above (Qur’ān, al-Baqarah, 2:259), in which Allah Most High makes mention of the traveller who passed by Jerusalem after the Babylonian destruction and who could not conceive of the dead city ever being revived to life. The traveller was put to death (sleep is a form of death) for a hundred years and then revived to consciousness. As with the youth, so too did the traveller have the consciousness of having tarried for just a day or part of a day. But the Qur’ān gives a vivid description of two different dimensions of time existing beside each other on earth when it described the fate of the donkey in one dimension of time, and of the food in another. While the donkey, in our dimension of time, starved to death, and the body decomposed until even the bones had crumbled to dust, the food which was preserved in another dimension of time remained fresh even after a hundred years. The lesson from this narrative is that both dimensions of time exist side by side right here on earth!
– 'Surah Kahf And The Modern Age': Sheikh Imran Hosein]
So Dajjal will enter in our dimension of time one day and we will see him. But prior to that, where will he be, when his day is like a year? And from what location will Dajjal begin the mission:
To liberate the Holy Land.
To bring back the Jews to the Holy Land.
To restore the state of Israel.
To Bring back the Gold Coin and the Silver Coin that was used at the time Of Dawood and Suleiman (A:)
To raise the state of Israel as the ruling state of the world from where he himself will rule the world.
Prior to that he will be around us in much the same way that angels and Jinn are always around us and yet they are not in ‘our’ world (in a day like our day) and hence are not visible. He will constantly attack us to test our faith. He will be weaving his web of deception, but we will not be able to observe him with our normal faculties of observation since ‘his day’ will not be like ‘our day’.
Where on earth will Dajjal be when he is released by Allah on earth in a day which would be like a year, and then in a day which would be like a month, and then finally in a day which would be like a week?
We know that he will be on earth, but where on earth?
Fortunately we have an answer to the first question, and that answer, in turn, opens for us the possibility to find answers to the other two questions. The answer to the first question is located in the Hadith that is known as the Hadith of Tamim al-Dari. Tamim al-Dari was a Christian who embraced Islam in Madina. He came to the Prophet (‘Alaihial-Salaam) and narrated to him something that he had experienced concerning Dajjal. The Prophet (SA:) responded by asking the people to keep sitting after the prayer in the Masjid so that he could narrate to them what Tamim had experienced concerning Dajjal. He went on to declare that what Tamim al-Dari had narrated to him confirmed what he, the Prophet (‘SA:), had himself been saying concerning Dajjal. Here is the Hadith:
“Narrated Fatimah bint Qays, sister of ad-Dahhak ibn Qays:
Amir ibn Sharahil ash-Sha'bi said: Fatimah bint Qays was among the first emigrant women. I asked her to narrate to me a Hadith which she had heard directly from Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) and there was no extra link between them. She said: Very well, if you like, I am prepared to do that. He said to her: Well, do so and narrate it to me. She said: … So I set out towards the mosque and observed prayer with the Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) and I was in the row of the women which was near the row of men. When Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) had finished his prayer, he sat on the pulpit, smiling, and said: Every worshipper should remain sitting in his place. He then said: Do you know why I have asked you to assemble? They said: Allah and His apostle know best. He said: By Allah, I have not made you assemble for exhortation or for a warning. I have detained you here because Tamim Dari, a Christian who came and accepted Islam, told me something which agrees with what I was telling you about the Dajjal. He narrated to me that he had sailed in a ship with thirty men of Banu Lakhm and Banu Judham and had been tossed by waves in the ocean for a month. Then these (waves) took them (near) the land within the ocean (island) at the time of sunset. They sat in a small rowing boat and landed on that island. There was a beast with long thick hair (and because of this) they could not distinguish his face from his back. They said: Woe to you, who can you be? Thereupon it said: I am al-Jassasah. They said: What is al-Jassasah? It said: O people, go to this person in the monastery as he is very much eager to know about you. He (the narrator) said: When it named a person for us we were afraid of it lest it should be a Devil.
Then we hurried on till we came to that monastery and found a well-built person there with his hands tied to his neck and iron shackles gripping his legs by the ankle. We said: Woe to you, who are you? He said: You soon come to know about me, but tell me who you are. We said: We are people from Arabia and we embarked upon a boat but the waves had been driving us for one month and they brought us near this island. We took to the rowing boats and landed on this island. Here a beast with profusely thick hair met us and because of the thickness of his hair, his face could not be distinguished from his back. We said: Woe be to thee, who are you?
It said: I am al-Jassasah. We said: What is al-Jassasah? It said: You go to this very person in the monastery for he is eagerly waiting for you to know about you. So we came to you in hot haste fearing that that might be the Devil. He (that chained person) said: Tell me about the date-palm trees of Baysan. We said: In which respect do you seek information about it? He said: I ask you whether these trees bear fruit or not. We said: Yes. Thereupon he said: I think these will not bear fruit. He said: Inform me about the lake of Tabariyyah (Sea of Galilee)? We said: What do you want to know about it? He said: Is there water in it? They said: There is an abundance of water in it.
There upon he said: I think it will soon dry up. He again said: Inform me about the spring of Zughar. They said: What do you want to know about it? He (the chained person) said: Is there water in it and does it irrigate (the land)? We said to him: Yes, there is an abundance of water in it and the inhabitants (of Medina) irrigate (land) with its help. He said: Inform me about the unlettered Prophet; what has he done? We said: He has left Mecca and has settled in Yathrib (Medina). He said: Do the Arabs fight against him? We said: Yes. He said: How does he deal with them? We informed him that he had overcome those in his neighbourhood and they had submitted themselves before him. Thereupon he said to us: Had it actually happened? We said: Yes. Thereupon he said: If it is so, that is better for them that they show obedience to him. I am going to tell you about myself. I am the Dajjal and will be soon permitted to leave. So I shall leave and travel in the land, and shall not spare any town where I shall not land within forty nights except Mecca and Tauba (i.e., Medina). These two (places) are prohibited (areas) for me and I shall not attempt to enter either of them. An angel with a sword in his hand will confront me and bar my way and there will be angels to guard every road leading to it. Then Allah's apostle (peace be upon him) striking the pulpit with the help of the end of his staff said: This implies Tayba meaning Medina. Have I not told you an account (of the Dajjal) like this? The people said: Yes, and this account narrated by Tamim Dari was liked by me for it corroborates the account which I gave to you in regard to him (Dajjal) at Medina and Mecca. Behold he (Dajjal) is in the Syrian sea (Mediterranean) or the Yemen sea (Arabian sea). Nay, on the contrary, he is in the east, he is in the east, he is in the east, and he pointed with his hand towards the east. I (Fatimah bint Qays) said: I preserved it in my mind (this narration from Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him).
It is very clear from this Hadith that when Dajjal was released into the world he would have to be geographically located on that island, and it would be from that island that he would launch his effort to impersonate the Messiah by liberating the Holy Land of non-Jewish rule etc. Which island was it?
So let us now analyze the above Hadith. If you are on the western side of Arabia, which is Hejaz, and you get on aboard a ship, there are only two seas on which you can travel. One is the Mediterranean sea; the other is the Red sea. But it seems impossible, for a ship to be at the Red Sea, and for a storm to be blowing and that ship did not touch land for a whole month, because the Red Sea is very narrow. So we have eliminated the Red Sea and remained with the Mediterranean Sea.
On the island they saw a hairy creature, so much it was hard to tell from which is head and with is tail; so the beast is concealing his identity with his hair. The beast said, I am Jassasah. Jassas means spy. So this is an island about one month’s journey from the western side of Arabia. This is an Island that conceals its identity. This is an Island who has PHD in espionage and intelligence work. Jassasah told them there is someone waiting for you in the monastery. So it is a Christian Island.
From the above Hadith we now know from where Dajjal will be released, he will commence his mission from that island. But which Island is it ?
In 1917 the British Secretary of State Lord Balfour, made a stunning declaration. At that time Britain was the ruling state of the world. And Lord Balfour declared that the British Government intends to pursue an effort for the establishment of the Jewish national home in Palestine. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 (dated 2 November 1917) was a formal statement of policy by the British government stating that
"His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
The declaration was made in a letter from Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, a Zionist organization. The letter reflected the position of the British, as agreed upon in a meeting on 31 October 1917. It further stated that the declaration is a sign of "sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations."
In 1919 a British army led by General Allenby, defeated the Turkish Army, and from a Jewish prospective liberated the Holy Land from a non Jewish Rule. And the Britain became the power which controlled the Holy Land. In those days there were no United Nations, there was the league of nations. The League of nations conferred upon Britain something called Mandate power. So Britain was the Mandate power who controlled the Holy Land. Britain controlled the Holy Land from 1919 to 1948. In 1948 Britain acted as the midwife for the baby to born. The baby was of course the state of Israel. During that period the world witnessed a massive migration of the European Jews to the Holy Land.
One must ask himself, of all states, why would a secular state such as Britain, which is in fact the Prince of secular states, would go so far to involve herself with the Jewish Zionist movement which has nothing to do with them? Because Zionism has extremism written all over it which is against secularism and all policies of a secular ruled state. On the other hand Britain is so much into secularism they would go against the teachings of the Bible to make Gay Marriage lawful. The answer is simple. Dajjal is the mastermind behind all this, not Britain. The creation of the state of Israel itself is a sign that Dajjal has started his mission.
The island of Britain is located across the Mediterranean Sea about one month’s journey from the Arab world!
In consequence of all of this, one must come to the conclusion that the island where Tamim Dari met Dajjal was none other than the island of Britain. And so when Dajjal was released he commenced his mission, to deceive Bani Israel and to deliver to them what would appear to be the return of the Golden Age, it is from Britain he commenced the following mission:
During the time that Dajjal was launching his attack from Britain the Holy Land was liberated of non Jewish Rule.
During the time that Britain was hosting Dajjal, the Jews came back to the Holy Land.
And during the time that Dajjal was launching his attack from Britain, the state of Israel was restored.
3 out of 5 has already been delivered. And in all of this, the overwhelming majority of Jews have been absolutely convinced that all of this represents blessings from Allah. That Allah is validating the Jewish claim to truth. And that Allah is fulfilling His Promise to Bani Israel. So the Messiah should be just around the corner.
It is quite possible that there would still be some who would disagree with our view in which we have identified Britain as the island mentioned in the Hadith. To such people we respond very respectfully with the invitation to kindly correct us. In order to do so they must, themselves, identify the island and provide the evidence that validates
their claim and invalidates ours. And so we have concluded that the Hadith has informed us that when Dajjal was released on earth and he commenced his mission of impersonating the Messiah in ‘a day that was like a year’ it was from the island of Britain that he did so. We have also noticed that during this period of time Britain functioned as the ‘Ruling State’ of the world. Secondly we noticed that when it was the ‘Ruling State’ of the world Britain exercised control over the money of the world. This was done through the Bank of England. Indeed London was the financial capital of the world.
But then there was a moment in time when USA replaced Britain as the ruling state of the world. This process of change or the transfer of power appears to have started with the First World War, and ended with the Second World War.
Our view is that during the period between the First and Second World Wars and the transfer of power as the ruling state of the world; another movement would have commenced. Dajjal would move from a day that was like a year to a day that was like a month. It is very important that we observe that process of change with great insight since it provides us with the clues with which to recognize that moment in time when Dajjal would move from a day that is like a month to a day that is like a week.
We must go back in history and look at what exactly triggered the First World War.
[An act of terrorism in the summer of 1914 in the city of Sarajevo resulted in the assassination of the Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand of Austria -Hungary. The perpetrator was a Serb but the footprints that were left led to Russia . Whoever planned the assassination, and left those footprints leading to Russia, wanted Austria -Hungary to
declare war on Russia. The real target of the assassination was not Russia but the ally of Russia, namely Britain. The Ottoman Islamic State was the other target. It had to be destroyed and Britain had to do the job of destruction. When Austria –Hungary declared war on Russia, Britain and France promptly entered the war in support of
Russia. And Germany responded by entering the war in support of Austria -Hungary.
The plan behind the event of the assassination was to so weaken the British economy through war that Britain would eventually lose its status as the Ruling State in the world and would be replaced by another State. The perpetrators of the act of terrorism were so devilishly cunning that they were able to simultaneously attack the Ottoman Islamic Empire. That State still constituted a formidable obstacle to the liberation of the Holy Land, the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the restoration of the State of Israel. The best possible way of removing that obstacle was war. And so the
Ottoman Islamic Empire was forced, by way of skilful internal intrigue, to enter the war in support of Germany. Britain was then eventually used for attacking and destroying not only the Ottoman Islamic State but, also, the Islamic Caliphate.
But from 1914 to 1916 the war was a disaster for Britain. Firstly, German submarines wrested from Britain control over the seas. Secondly, Germany occupied France and installed a pro-German government in Paris. Thirdly, Russian troops were deserting and retreating. And finally, by 1916 Britain was in such dire straits that she was marooned and was threatened by starvation. Then came dramatic change in 1916.
The Jews approached the British Government and offered to get USA to enter the war in support of Britain if Britain would, as a quid pro quo, promise to give the Holy Land to the Jews at the end of the war. Britain accepted the offer. The Jews then put their tremendous propaganda machinery in USA to work and pulled every possible
string until they succeeded in getting USA to enter the war in 1916 in support of Britain. Britain responded one year later by issuing the Balfour Declaration. 1916 also marked the successful conclusion of excellent espionage by British spies in the Arabian Peninsula.
Britain succeeded in achieving two very important objectives both of which constituted strategic blows delivered against the Ottoman Islamic State. The first was the conclusion of a Treaty of Mutual Assistance and Benevolent Neutrality between Britain and ‘Abdul ‘Aziz Ibn Saud (then ruling over Riyadh).
The cost to Britain was a mere 5000 Sterling pounds a month that Abdul Aziz would receive from the British Treasury. The second was the success in inducing Sharif Husain, the Ottoman appointed Sharif of Makka and the Hejaz, to rebel against the Ottoman Caliph and declare his independence. The cost to Britain was a princely sum of 7 million Sterling pounds.
And so 1916 changed the course of the war and eventually delivered victory to the USA, Britain and the Jews. Not only was Germany defeated but, more importantly, the Ottoman Islamic State was dismembered and in its place emerged the secular State of Turkey. Indeed the secular leadership of Turkey promptly negotiated an offensive and defensive alliance with the same Britain that had played the leading role in the dismemberment of the Ottoman Islamic State. But Britain was so devastated by the war that the USA replaced Britain as the Ruling State in the world. This was confirmed
during the period between the two world wars and then after the Second World War.
For example, during the Second World War it was an American General, Dwight Eisenhower, who led the allied troops. Then in 1944 the Bretton Woods conference on the establishment of a new international monetary system delivered a convincing statement on Britain’s new diminished status when it selected the US dollar as the new international currency replacing the Sterling pound. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank replaced the Bank of England as the premier financial institutions in the world. And Washington replaced London as the financial capital of the world thus controlling the money of the world. After the war was over it was USA that had to rebuild the British and European economies through the Marshall Plan. In the 1956 Suez crisis and again in the Cuban missile crisis of 1963, USA convincingly demonstrated its new status as the Ruling State in the world.
In the same way that Britain, the Ruling State in the world, was strangely obsessed with the Holy Land (e.g., the Balfour Declaration) and the British people were themselves incapable of explaining this strange obsession, so too was the new Ruling State, USA, strangely obsessed with the Holy Land, and so too were the American people themselves incapable of explaining this strange obsession. For example, USA was the first State in the world to ‘recognize’ the new State of Israel when it declared its independence in 1948. Since then USA has acted as the chief Patron of Israel ‘through thick and through thin’! USA has provided Israel with massive financial, economic and military aid. In fact the total aid to Israel almost exceeds the total US aid to the rest of the world. Some of the US aid has gone to Israel through the US government but a substantial amount of aid has also gone from USA to Israel through Jews who are resident in USA. In so far as military aid is concerned some has gone through the ‘front door’ and some through the ‘back door’ (the case of Jonathan Pollard who passed on to Israel US nuclear secrets is the most well known). As a consequence Israel became a nuclear and a thermo-nuclear power on par with the nuclear States in the world.
-'Jerusalem in the Qur’an': Sheikh Imran Hosein]
USA has now the same obsession with the state of Israel which Britain once had when it was the ruling state of the world. This only indicates that Dajjal is geographically located in USA during that stage of his life on earth when ‘his day is like a month’.
We are now located at a moment in time when Dajjal is about to move to that stage of his life on earth when his ‘day would be like a week’, which would witness USA being replaced by Israel as the Ruling State in the world. But how does one come to this conclusion? Because history would have repeated itself and give us a devastating September 11th shocker. The attack on USA was an inside job not just according to the Muslims but also most Americans. Just like the conspiracy of that started First World War, September 11th attack triggered the destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, the two obstacles that were standing in the way of Israel. The war on terrorism would start to process the transfer of power from USA to Israel. And history is repeating itself as it did back in 1944, which the world saw the US Dollar would replace the Pound Sterling as the International Currency. The global economic meltdown and the falling US dollar indicates that it will soon be replaced with a new currency. A currency that would replace the paper money and bring back the Gold and Silver Coin.
Abū Bakr ibn Abi Maryam reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah say: "A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing (left) that will be of use (or benefit) save a Dinār (i.e., a gold coin) and a Dirham (i.e., a silver coin).”
This prophecy clearly anticipates the eventual collapse of the fraudulent monetary system now functioning around the world. It is also an indication of the mission of the false Messiah Dajjal. To restore the Dinar (Gold Coin) and the Dirham (Silver Coin) that was used in the life time of Dawood (A:) and Suleiman (A:).
It is likely that the State of Israel would soon displace USA as the Ruling State in the world and would then lay claim to the return of the Golden Age of Solomon (‘Alaihi al-Salam). This has not as yet taken place. But when it does it would represent further progress in Dajjal’s mission of impersonating the true Messiah.
I would also like to add that most of the Islamic Scholars of today especially the ones that reside in the western world have decided to ignore the subject of Dajjal. While they are thinking that the flying donkey of Dajjal is not of their time, and while they sleep on the fact that we are not living in the last age, and while they are too busy raising funds on various TV channels and building 5 star mosques, Dajjal’s Army are paving the way for the Crowning of the one eyed liar.
Freemasons, The Illuminati, Skull and Bone to name a few are the disciples of Dajjal. The one eyed symbol known as the All Seeing Eye which is displayed all around the world is a tactic used by Dajjal's followers/army in an attempt to allow peoples sub-conscious mind to become familiar with the Eyes authority.
THE VIEWS ON THIS ESSAY ARE MY PERSONAL VIEWS FROM MY EXPLORATION OF THE END OF TIMES SUBJECT AND ALSO WHAT I HAVE LEARNED FROM WORLD RENOWNED SHOLAR SHEIKH IMRAN HOSEIN. THEY ARE NOT ALL WRITTEN IN STONE AND ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY EVENTS. AND I AM PREPARED TO FOLLOW A DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT IF IT IS FOUND TO BE BETTER AND MORE CORRECT EXPLANATION OF THE SOURCE MATERIALS. KNOWLEDGE COMES FROM ALLAH..
