Dear Islamic brothers!
It is in many statements of the beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ that
near the day of
Qiyamah, among many other fitnahs (trials, corruptions), a fitnah of maseeh
Dajjal will also appear. In order to make the believers well aware of the
fitnah, the beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی
عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ would mention him in
different occasions and gatherings. He would seek refuge and protection of
وَجَلَّ from Dajjal even in his prayers.
His dua used to be with following words:
انی) اعوذ بک من فتنۃ المسیح الدجال
O my Lord! I seek your refuge from the evils of Dajjal.
The above mentioned Dua is
sufficient enough to make us realize the graveness of this near-qiyamah-fitnah.
Because it is a very important issue, the ulama of Islam
have mentioned it in their books with full detail. Here we are mentioning few
important points related to this issue from the book Bahar-e-Shariat written by
Hazrat Molana Amjad Ali Aazami عَلَیْہِ رَحْمَۃُ
اللہِ القَوِی. For further information you may download it from our website www.dawateislami.net.
the exception of Haramain
Sharifain (Makkah and Madinah), Dajjal will travel the entire world in
forty days. The first day will be equivalent to one year, the second day will
be equivalent to one month, the third day equivalent to one week and the rest
of the days shall all be of twenty four hours each.

fitna (corruption) will be very potent.

Jannat and his fire as Jahanum. These will go with him where ever he goes.

clearly, but the non-believers will not be able to see this.

Jaame Masjid of Damascus.
will be early in the morning. The Iqaamat for Namaaz-e-Fajr would have already
been called out. Hazrat Imam Mahdi عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام will be present in this Jamaat. Hazrat Isa
عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام will command him to
lead the Fajr Namaaz. Hazrat Imam Mahdi عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام will lead the congregation and Dajaal will
start melting through the fragrant breath of Hazrat Isa عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام, like salt melts in water.
fragrant scent of Hazrat Isa's عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام breath will spread as far as the eye can
see. He will flee and Hazrat Isa عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام will pursue him, and throw a spear into
his back, sending him towards the fire of hell.
And in this way this fitnah will come to an end on the hands of
Prophet Isa عَلَیْہِ السَّلَام. May
Almighty Allah عَزَّ وَجَل save us from the evils of Dajjal! Ameen
