Dajjal (Antichrist), a powerful devilish character will appear on the scene. Besides the Holy cities of Makkah ‘the Ennobled’ and Madinah ‘the Illuminated’, he will establish his influence and conquer the entire world in a span of just forty days. The first day of these forty days will be as long as a year. The second day will be like a month and the third day like a week.
The rest of the days will be of normal duration. Dajjal (Antichrist), like a destructive storm will travel around the world, destroying everything in his path. His speed will be like the speed of a cloud carried away by forceful winds. He will unleash destruction wherever he goes. The afflictions and miseries that Dajjal (Antichrist) will cause through his mischief and deceptions will be appalling.
He will play tricks and The devious Dajjal (Antichrist) will have two dazzling things with which to entice the people – a garden and a fire. He will call these “Jannah” (Paradise) and “Jahannam” (Hell) and wherever he goes he will take them with him. In reality, in this illusion and magic, his Jannah will actually be fire and his Jahannam will be a peaceful place of rest.
He will order people to believe him to be God. Whoever believes him to be God, he will put them into his Jannah, and whoever rejects him, he will throw them into his Jahannam (which will be the opposite).
He will revive the dead and the earth will grow vegetation upon his command. He will make the clouds rain. The livestock ofthe people during his reign will increase in number and health and the milk-yield will also increase. When Dajjal (Antichrist) passes through the forests, treasures of wealth will follow him like swarms of bees.
Dajjal’s Magical Tricks
He will play several other magical tricks and ploys which will ultimately prove to be sheer illusions. All these tricks and ploys will indeed be deceptive feats of magic and wizardry and will instantly vanish as soon as Dajjal (Antichrist) leaves the place. Whenever Dajjal (Antichrist) tries to move towards the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, Angels will turn his face in some other direction. Dajjal (Antichrist) will be followed by an army of Jews and will have three letters “ك (Kaaf), ف (Faa), ر (Raa)” (signifying Kaafir or disbeliever) engraved on his forehead. Muslims alone will be able to see and read these letters.
When Dajjal (Antichrist) completes his round of the world and reaches Syria, it will be dawn. The call to prayer for the morning Ṣalāh would have just finished when the Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام will descend onto the eastern minaret of the Jaami’ Masjid of Damascus.
Imām Mahdi will be present and will be asked by Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام to lead the prayer. With the presence of Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام this will have a very disastrous effect on Dajjal (Antichrist) who will start melting, like salt in water, due to the pleasant odour emanating from the breath of Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام.
The pleasant odour will keep growing in intensity far and wide until Dajjal (Antichrist) is forced to retreat. Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام will chase Dajjal (Antichrist) and will finally kill him with a spear.
The end of Dajjal (Antichrist)’s domination will mark the beginning of a new era. Prophet ‘Īsā’s عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام reign will be one of abundance and affluence.
People will be in possession of so much wealth that it will be difficult to find anyone in need of anything. There will be no enmity, jealousy, animosity or distrust among the people. Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام will kill the pig (Khinzeer) and break the Cross.
All the followers of the Holy Books who survive the tyrannical atrocities of Dajjal (Antichrist) during his regime will eventually proclaim their allegiance to Prophet ‘Īsā عَـلٰى نَبِيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام. There will now only be one dominant religion – Islam.
