Is Dajjal A System?

There are different interpretations of the Hadith about dajjal. Different scholars have a different perspective. But there are some perceptions that can easily be denied by considering some facts from the Hadith in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari.

I would like to quote a Hadith from Sahih Muslim,

It is narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullah b. Umar that one day the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) mentioned in the presence of people about al-Masih al-Dajjal. He said: Verily Allah (hallowed be He and High) is not blind of one eye. Behold, but the Masih al-Dajjal is blind of right eye as if his eye is like a swollen grape, and the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I was shown in a dream in the night that near the Ka’bah there was a man fair-complexioned, fine amongst the white-complexioned men that you ever saw, his locks of hair were falling on his shoulders. He was a man whose hair were neither too curly nor too straight, and water trickled down from his head. He was placing his bands on the shoulders of two persons and amidst them was making a circuit around the Ka’bah. I said: Who is he? They replied: Al-Masih son of Mary. And I saw behind him a man with intensely curly hair, blind of right eye. Amongst the persons I have ever seen ibn qatan has the greatest resemblance with him. He was making a circuit around the Ka’bah by placing both his hands on the shoulders of two persons. I said: Who is he? They said; It is al-Masih al-Dajjal. (Book #001, Hadith #0324)

Sahih Muslim: (Book #001, Hadith #0324) (Book #001, Hadith #0327)
Sahih Bukhari: (Book #55, Hadith #649) (Book #55, Hadith #650) (Book #87, Hadith #153) (Book #87, Hadith #153) (Book #88, Hadith #242)

This Hadith has been narrated in slightly different detail in all the other Sahih hadith I have referred above. But all of them have Abdul Uzza Ibn Qatan as a common reference.

Now, Who is Ibn Qatan? Abdul Uzza Ibn Qatan was a man from the al-Mustaliq tribe of Khuza’a, who died in the pre-Islamic times, and the Prophet (pbuh) referred to him as to have a greater resemblance with Dajjal. With this said, calling dajjal a system and interpreting blindness in one eye as spiritual blindess etc, are meaningless.

I would like to mention a few of those ideas which are commonly spread among people, about the Dajjal.

• Most people believe that Blind in One Eye means ‘Internal Blindness’
• Some people even say that Dajjal is in fact the Western Culture, i-e- Materialism
• Some people call the Television a Dajjal, seeing how it appears like a One-Eye, etc.

Whatever the issue may be, the above hadith clearly denies all of them. Dajjal will be a Being in Human Form, and Not a System.

    Assalaamu Alaikom.Yes,I agree with you that the dajjal is an individual.But from the one eye symbol that is increasingly being shown in advertisements,movies,pop music etc at now one may realize his followers are preparing for his coming in not too far away in the distant future.His followers are establishing this system of dajjal to fascilate his coming.One just need open his eyes to understand this phenemenon.

    • Amer Awan says:

      I agree with the previous response. No doubt dajjal will be in human form but the term system to me represents the course of events that are unfolding to facilitate his arival. Certain events must unfold before he can get to work himself so for the mean time he has his jinn soldiers putting spells on so many people so as to speed up his breaking loose. If the word system doesn’t work for you try agenda.

  2. Fahad says:

    I do fully agree with Brother Mohammed Ali but the systems like illuminati, skull and bones, etc. which are giving space to the resemblance of horus (the Anticrist) by promoting One eye symbols (as of dajjal), concentration Camps (which specifies that if you do not obey them they will be burried alive in the coffins present in the camp – same as what dajjal will do) and the new world order (to weeken muslims arround the world – the main propective of Dajjal). This is what the people say that the system of Dajjal has already been started – Signs before coming of dajjal.

  3. angela says:

    I will just say that the these retard illuminaties are the followers of Dajjal. In other words, his troops. They think he is their messiah. They believe that this Dajjal is going to be the reincarnation of their deity.

    I have been doing several studies on this. Turned out that people are deceived to become freemason. I am sure you know about it. Once in this group, there is no way of going back. I checked the freemason website of my city. It said “commitment must be permanent”. Of course, all instructions come from evil jinns who hate humans to death.

    But mark my word, their punched in one eye god won’t be coming anytime soon. Perhaps, we will keep seeing his pathetic signs in public. It is those stupids’ way of showing their devotion for him.

  4. Amir says:

    Dajjal is actually the devil behind the iluminate… “lucifer”

  5. Yusuf says:

    Assalamu ‘alaikum

    I’m glad that you responded the way you did Brother Ali! May Allah increase you in knowledge and rank, and bless and protect you and your family for your adherence to the truth.

    The fact is that there is no daleel (evidence) to support the idea that the dajjal is a ‘system’ or ‘ideology.’ This religion of Islam is unlike any other, in that we cannot make any statement that is not supported by either the Qur’an and/or AUTHENTIC ahadeeth. This is the correct methodology. There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it.

    May Allah make you firm and steadfast upon sticking to only authentic sources and to the statements and opinions of the righteous scholars. Ameen.

  6. irfan says:

    What does it mean, “kafir will be written on the forehead of Dajjal, and only muslim can read, whether he is literate or illiterate” … is it not symbolism ?

  7. musa says:

    There is an allusion to the possibility of a group of people who will follow the dajjal in the many hadith concerning the dajjal. There are among others, musicians, women groups, homosexuals and Pornstar, clerics, politicians etc. These people are well organised and believe in what they are doing. From a point of view, they operate in a system and it is for all intent and purpose the dajjal system. The fact that these groups most often choose the eye of horus as an important symbol should prove that they follow the one eyed lier. The dajjal.

  8. Ali says:

    I believe the the above hadith to be incorrect or wrongly narrated as Dajjal is a Kafir! and the Kafir will not be allowed to the enter the Holy Cities of Medina and Mecca. Dajjal will try but will fail. I would strongly disagree and look for more authenticity of it in the Quran on the said hadith by Abdullah b. Umar .
