Hadith Explanation

Surat al-Kahf against Dajjal

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said about Dajjal, “He is a young man with curly hair and his eye is blind….Whoever among you sees him, let him recite the opening verses of Surat al-Kahf over him.” [Sahih Muslim]

Besides being one-eyed, Dajjal has curly and short hair and is a young man. Additional descriptions we have of him from the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) are that he is heavy built with a big body and red complexion. [Sahih Bukhari]

The first ten ayaat of Surat al-Kahf should be memorized as these are the only antidote against him. People who consider themselves to be good Muslims will be taken in by him, give up their Islam and accept his divinity. Therefore, should we hear about him we should make no attempt to meet him. Instead we should try to escape as far away from him and his fitnah as possible; into the mountains and away from cities and civilizations as his fitnah will be more intense here.

Dajjal will come at a time when people have stopped mentioning him, religious scholars no longer warn against him and people no longer worry about his appearance. We should learn about his fitnah in order not to be deceived by him. Once Dajjal appears there will be no time to understand his fitnah or prepare ourselves against him. We should do it now.
