Mahdi med

Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

The Mahdi will come at the end of times, in a period when the world is full of trials, wrongdoing and lacking justice. He will set aright the affairs of the Muslims and lead the believers in a number of battles. He will come in the years preceding the Dajaal.

Ibn Mas’ud (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Even if only one day was left of this world, Allah Would Make that day long so that He Could Send a man who is of me or of my family, whose name is the same as my name and whos father’s name is the same as my father’s name.” [At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud]

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Mahdi is of me. He has a high forehead and a prominent nose. He will fill the world with fairness and justice as it was filled with wrongdoing and injustice, and he will rule for seven years.” [Abu Dawud]

Ali (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Mahdi is one of us, from our family; Allah Will Prepare him in one night.” [Al-Musnad]

The Mahdi is from the lineage of the Prophet (ﷺ), a descendant of his daughter, Fatima (ra), through Al-Hasan ibn Ali (ra). His name will be Muhammad ibn Abd’Allah.

Where will the Mahdi appear?

Thawbaan (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Three will fight one another for your treasure, each one of them being the son of a caliph but none of them will gain it. Then the black banners will come from the east and they will kill you in an unprecedented manner.” Then he mentioned something that I [Thawbaan] do not remember, then he said, “When you see him, then pledge your allegiance to him even if you have to crawl over the snow.” [Ibn Maajah]

Umm Salamah (ra) that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Disagreement will occur at the death of a caliph and a man from Madeenah will flee to Makkah. Some of the people of Makkah will come to him, bring him out against his will and give bay’ah to him between the Rukn (Black Stone) and the Maqaam. An expeditionary force will then be sent against him from Syria but will be swallowed up in Al-Bayda’, between Makkah and Madeenah. When the people see that, the devoted worshippers from Syria and the best people of Iraq will come to him and swear allegiance to him. Then there will arise a man of Quraysh whose maternal uncles are from Kalb. He will send an army against [the Mahdi] and [the Mahdi’s followers] will prevail over them. That [defeated army[ will be the force of Kalb. The real loser will be the one who is not present when the wealth of Kalb is divided. He [the Mahdi] will divide the wealth, and will rule the people by the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Islam will be established on Earth and he will remain seven years, then he will die and the Muslims will offer the funeral prayer for him.” [At-Tabarani] According to another narration the length of his rule will be 9 years [Abu Dawud]

What the Mahdi is NOT

He is not the claimed mahdi of the Ahmadiyya (Qadiyani, also known as Mirzaiy) – Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is one of the lesser dajaals.

He is not the claimed mahdi of the Shia, who say that he is the 12th imam of a chain of imams, who has been living in the tunnel of Samurra for more than 1000 years, since the year 260AH.

Dajaal 6 med

Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

There is no fitna that we have been warned against more than the Fitna of the Dajjaal. It will be such that many people, Muslims included, will fall prey to it. So you need to be on your guard against this.

The Followers of the Dajaal

There will be many followers of the Dajaal, including weak and misguided Muslims, disbelievers and hypocrites.

Abu Bakr (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Dajaal will emerge from a land in the East called Khorasan and he will be followed by people with faces like hammered shields.” [Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn-Maajah, Al-Haakim]

Khorasan is a large city which is in Iran.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Dajaal will camp in the salt marshes and most of those who go out to him will be women; a man will go to his relatives, to his mother, daughter, sister, and paternal aunt, and tie them up for fear that they will go out to him.”

Anas ibn Malik narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Seventy thousand jews of Isfahan will follow the Dajaal, wearing shawl-like garments.” [Muslim]

Isfahan is a city in central Iran, approximately 340km south of Tehran. According to official sources it has 25-30,000 jewish inhabitants.

Abu Hurayrah (ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The Dajaal will camp at Khooz [western Iran] and Kirmaan [a region in south-east Iran] with 70,000 [people] whose faces are like hammered shields.”

Anas ibn Malik (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “No part of the earth will be left except that the Dajaal will enter and prevail over it, except for Makkah and Madinah. All the roads leading to them will have an angel standing guard on it. He [the Dajaal] will camp in the salt marsh and Madinah will be shaken with its people three times, and every disbeliever or hypocrite will come out of it.” [agreed upon]

Abu Dharr (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said. “Apart from the Dajaal, what I fear most for my Ummah is misguided leaders.” [Ahmad]

Protection against Dajjaal

The Prophet (ﷺ) has ordered us to run away from the Dajjaal, not to confront him, and to memorise the first or last 10 verses of Surat Al-Kahf, or to live in either Makkah or Madeenah (as the Dajjaal cannot enter these two places).

 Dajaal 5 med

Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

There is no fitna that we have been warned against more than the Fitna of the Dajjaal. It will be such that many people, Muslims included, will fall prey to it. So you need to be on your guard against this.

The Deceit of the Dajaal

The Dajaal is the great deceiver.

Hudhayfah ibn Al-Yamaan (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He will have with him a garden and a fire but his fire will be a garden and his garden will be fire.” [Muslim]

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I know what the Dajaal will have with him. He will have two flowing rivers, one that appears to the eye to be clear water and one which appears to the eye to be flaming fire. If anyone sees that, let him go to the river which he thinks is fire.” [Muslim]

Al-Nawwaas ibn Sam’aan (ra) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He will come to a people and call them, and they will believe in him. Then he will command the sky and it will rain, and he will command the earth and it will bring forth produce. Their herds will come back to them in the evening with their humps as high as they ever were and their udders full and their flanks stretched. Then he will come to another people and call them, and they will reject what he says, so he will leave them and they will be afflicted with drought (which will destroy their land and crops). He will pass by ruins and say, ‘Bring forth your treasure’, and its treasure will follow him like a swarm of bees.” [Muslim]

In another hadith: The Dajaal will say to a bedouin, “What do you think if I resurrect your father and mother for you, will you bear witness that I am your Lord?” He will say “yes.” Then two devils will appear to him in the forms of his father and mother and will say, “O my son, follow him, for he is your Lord.” [Ibn-Maajah and Al-Haakim]

In another hadith: The Dajaal will call a youthful man and sever him in two. Then the Dajaal will say to the people, “Look at this slave of mine, I shall resurrect him, and he will claim that he has a Lord other than me.” The Dajaal will then command him to rise, alive, and he will get up; [he] will have been given life by Allah and not the Dajaal, but the Dajaal will think that he brought him back to life and placed the two [severed] halves back together again. Then the evil one will say, “Who is your Lord?” He [the man] will say, “My Lord is Allah and you are the enemy of Allah; you are the Dajaal.”

In another narration:

The Dajaal will emerge and a man from among the believers will go towards him and he will be met by armed men, who are the bodyguards and supporters of the Dajaal. They will say to him, “Where are you going?” He will say, “I am going to this one who has emerged.” They will say to him, “Don’t you believe in our lord?” He will say, “There is nothing hidden about our Lord. They will say, “Kill him,” They will say to one another , “Didn’t your lord forbid you to kill anyone without his consent?” So they will take him to the Dajaal and when the believer see him, he will say, “People, this is Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajaal, whom the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) mentioned.” The Dajaal will order that he be made to lie spread-eagled on the ground. He [the Dajaal] will say, “Take him and strike him on the head,” and he will be beaten severely on his stomach and back. Then he will say, “Do you not believe in me?” He will say, “You are the false messiah.” Then it will be ordered that he be cut in two with a saw, from the middle of his head to between his legs. Then the Dajaal will walk between the two pieces and will say to him, “Get up,” and he will stand up straight. Then the Dajaal will say to him, “Do you believe in me?” He will say, “It has only made me more certain about you.” The believer will then say, “People, he will not do it to anyone after me.” Then the Dajaal will take hold of him and slaughter him, but the area between his neck and collar bone will be turned into copper and he will not be able to harm him. Then he will take hold of his hands and feet and throw him, and the people will think that he threw him unto Hell but he will be thrown into Paradise. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “This will be the greatest of martyrs before the Lord of the Worlds.” [Muslim]
