Fitnah of Dajjaal


QUESTION: We hear about the Dajjaal and the Fitnah (tribulations) surrounding him, from which the Messenger (peace be upon him) sought refuge (in Allah), and we have been commanded to seek refuge (in Allah) from his fitnah. So who is the Dajjaal? And what are his attributes?

ANSWER: Dajjaal is a man who will appear towards the end of time, and Jews will follow him. His appearance is a sign of the Last Hour, and he will bring with him immense Fitan (tests and trials) which will have an adverse effect o­n the Iman (of Muslims). Quite possibly many people may perish because of his Fitnah, except those whom Allah protects.

As for his attributes, he would be a Kafir man, blind in o­ne eye. He will seek to divert people from their religion by whatever means possible. So his Fitnah and danger will be immense. It is obligatory upon us to seek refuge in Allah from his Fitnah, as we have been commanded (to do so) by the Prophet (peace be upon him).

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]

    Salaams, would appreciate guidance on whether a Muslim should greet another Muslim with Salaam or Salaams? Is there a difference, if so, what is the difference. May Allah reward you

  2. Assalaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu…

    Barakallaahu Feekum

    The proper greeting is Assalaamu alaykum….Salaam or Salaams are short cuts of assalaamu `alaykum.

    let me share this to you….

    Abu Hurayrah reported that a man passed by the Messenger of Allah while he was in a gathering, and he said: “as-Salamu ‘alaykum.” So, he said: “Ten good deeds.”

    Another man passed by and said: “as-Salamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah.” So, he said: “Twenty good deeds.”

    Another man passed by and said: “as-Salamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh.” So, he said: “Thirty good deeds.”

    So, let us try to obtain the thirty good deeds by making the complete greeting instead of the basic one. Imagine how many hasanat pass us by every time we greet each other, as just two or three extra words will gain us an extra twenty good deeds each time we say them!

    Wallaahu `alam bissawaab..
