Water and Fire
Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The Dajjal will emerge, and he will have with him water and fire. As for that which the people will think is water, it will be burning fire, and as for that which the people will think is fire, it will be sweet, cool water. Whoever among you sees that, let him plunge into that which he thinks is fire, for it is sweet, cool water.” [Sahih Muslim]
This is a characteristic of the time of the Dajjal and the end times, that good will be made to appear bad, and evil will be presented with good names. Pious Muslims will be misrepresented and portrayed in the worst possible way while evil people will be held up as models of virtue. Corruption will be in food, water, land and in the air. Unnatural and harmful things will be adopted as beneficial and essential parts of people’s lifestyles. Thus, it is no surprise that the fire and water with Dajjal will also be the opposite of what they appear to be.
