Is Mahdi, Dajjal, Yajooj Majuj Quranic?
« on: December 13, 2011, 06:53:13 PM »
Salaam alaikum brother Joseph,

I found the following from someone and frankly this is what a tonne of Islamic scholars are saying around and some muslims:

" Signs of Qiyamat:
1) Appearance of Imam Mahdi
2) Appearance of Dajjal
3) Descendance of Hazrat Isa (A.S)
... 4) Appearance of Yajooj n Majooj
5) The rising of the sun from the west - the doors of forgiveness will be closed
6) The Dab'bat al-Ard wil emerge from the ground and will mark all the true Muslims.
7) There will be 40 days of fog which will kill all the true believers so that they do not have to experience the signs to come
8] A huge fire that will cause destruction of the Kaaba
9) The writing in the Quran will vanish.
10) A trumpet will be blown and all the animals & kafirs that are left will die and all the mountains & buildings will crumble
11) The trumpet will be blown a second time and all of Allah's creation will resurrect and meet on the plains of Arafat for their judgment
12) The sun will lower itself with the earth.

Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said, ''Who ever delivers this news to someone else, I will on the day of judgement make for him a place in Jannat.''
Ameen..... "

who is Imaam Mahdi? who/what is Dajjal? Yajooj and Majooj?

How does one tackle this?

I found verses from the Quran saying the knowledge of the Hour is ONLY with Allah and no one else. Then what does the above mean? And why do you think scholars are spreading this around if the Truth is only with Allah.

Salamun Alaikum sister,

Imam Mahdi, Dajjal, Second coming of Prophet Jesus etc are all unquranic concepts and those that propound such concepts base their opinions on Islamic secondary sources and not the Quran.

Indeed, there is mention of a tribe of people in the past known as Yajooj and Majuj from the Quran (18:94) but this has nothing to do with Mahdi / Dajjal etc.

Most of these unquanic concepts are a direct result of the belief that Prophet Jesus will return to earth (A Christian inherited belief) for which the Quran provides no proof.

Rather, verses of the Quran seem to clearly refute such a belief.


You are absolutely correct that knowledge of the hour is only with God which is a fundamental belief of a true believer indoctrinated by the Quran. One begs the question as to what state one leaves their belief (vast majority of Muslims) that compromise and pollute their beliefs with alien, unquranic concepts.

Only God knows best.
