Dajjal (The Deceiver)
ad-Dajjal, sometimes spelled Dajal, (Arabic:
, "the Deceiver","the Impostor", "the Anti-Christ"), is an evil figure inIslamic eschatology.He is to appear at a time in the future, before Yawm al-Qiyamah(The Dayof Resurrection, Judgement Day).
(compare to "
") is a common Arabic word, used in the sense of "false prophet", but
, with the definite article, refers to "theimposter", a specific end-of times deceiver. The term
al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl
(Arabic for "the false messiah") is a literal translation of theSyriacterm
Mšīḥā Daggālā
, which had been in the common vocabulary of theMiddleEastand adapted into theArabiclanguage 400 years prior to theQur'an  via thePeshitta(which uses that term instead of the Greek "antichristos")  The belief is based around the events prior to theDay of JudgmentaroundtheSecond Comingof  The Christ, when
who is blind in his righteye, shall gather an army of those he has deceived and lead them in awar against Jesus, who shall be accompanied by an army of the righteous.He will appear somewhere between Syria and Iraq, at which time Jesus willreturn and defeat ad-Dajjal inPalestine. He will travel the whole worldpreaching his falsehood but will be unable to enterMeccaorMedina. Linguistically, the reason for his name being
al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl
is simplybecause
is a title given to one who travels extensively to increasetheir influence in the world. Jesus is also called
because he willroam throughout the world to preach righteousness and virtue, whereasthe
would travel around the world to do just the opposite. He wouldgain control over the whole world, which is the specific reason he is called
. Essentially, Jesus is the
of virtue and righteousness;
of evil.
 The ProphetMuhammadhad given many signs of the appearance of theDajjal and exhorted his followers to recite the first and the last ten versesof Sura Al-Kahf , as protection from the trials and mischief of the Dajjal  The word
has two connotations: First, it signifies a group whichsupports falsehood and works with cunning and deceit. Secondly, it is thename of the Satan who is the father of all falsehood and corruption
Signs that will precede him
 The coming of Imaam MahdiIn light of many Ahadith the Ulama of the Ahlus-Sunnah are of the opinionthat Imaam Mahdi will come before the Dajjal and the Dajjal will appear inthe later parts of Imaam Mahdi's reign.
The Great Famine
 There will be a famine for three years before his appearance. In the firstyear of the famine the heaven will withhold one third of its rain and theearth one third of its crops. In the second year of the famine heaven willwithhold two thirds of its rain and the earth will withhold two thirds of itscrops. In the third year there will not be a single drop of rain and not asingle thing will grow and thus all the animals with hoofs and biting teethwill die and the Tasbeeh will suffice the believers hunger. (Asma-b- Yauzeed-Mishkat)
Dajjal's parents
His father will be tall and thin and his nose will be pointed like a beakwhile his mother will be fat with two long hands. They will both remainthirty years without a child. After thirty years a one eyed son with bitingteeth and of little benefit will be born to them whose heart will remainawake while his eyes will sleep. (Abu-Bakara-Tirmidhi)
General signs that will precede Dajjal
From the hadith of Umme Shareek which can be found in Muslim we couldconclude the Arabs will be less in numbers. At the same time we canconclude from the hadith of Jabir-b-Abdullah which can be found in An-Nihaya that religious learning will be at a low and very few people will beaquainted with religious principles and doctrines and thus ignorance willprevail.

Dajjal's Emergence
Conquering Constantinople with Takbir, the Muslims will begin to take thebooty. While they are distributing the war posses- sions a proclaimer willproclaim that the Dajjal has appeared and causing fitna in your homes. Onhearing this cry the Muslims will leave the booty and head towards Syria1.It will come to their knowledge that this was a false rumour. However afterreaching Syria the Dajjal will truly emerge. He will come out from a roadbetween Syria and Iraq2 and his emergence will become known inIsfahan3 at a place called Yahoodah. Riding a white ass4, the two ears of which will be forty hands apart, 70,000 Jew's of Isfahan will follow him withhoods on their heads. Also accompanied by Devils6 and Jewishmagicians7 he will first claim Prophethood8 and then God hood. Travellingas fast as those clouds which are driven by the winds he will travel to eastand west entering every country, carrying out murders, pillage,devastation and performing unusual feats wherever he goes9.
