Hadith Explanation


Seven Years of Peace


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The Dajjal will appear in my Ummah, and will remain for forty. Then Allah will send Eesa ibn Maryam, who will resemble Urwah ibn Masud. He will chase the Dajjal and kill him. Then the people will live for seven years during which there will be no enmity between any two persons.” [Muslim: Kitab al-Fitan wa Ashrat al-Sa’ah]

The period of Dajjal’s stay on earth is forty days; but the duration of the first three days is one year, one month, and one week, respectively. The remaining 37 days are each as long as our regular days are. After the earth is rid of the Dajjal there will be a period of such exemplary peace that there won’t be any enmity between any two people on earth. This period will last for seven years.
 
Some ahadith narrate events briefly, highlighting the main points only; while other ahadith fill in the details. This hadith, for example, simply states the period of Dajjal’s stay and then a period of extraordinary peace, without detailing the trials that Dajjal will put the people through or the events to take place during Eesa (alaihis salam’s) second stay on earth, during which these seven peaceful years will happen. All the ahadith put together give the total, detailed picture.
