In Islamic eschatology, the End Times will be ushered in by the Dajjal, the false messiah who will ravage the world before being slain by the Muslim version of Jesus. As this essay by Egyptian Sheikh Mahmoud al-Masry shows, the Dajjal is to be born of a Jewish woman in Iran and will lead an army of 70,000 …wait for it… JEWS!!!
Anas said: The Prophet of Allah said: “The Dajjal will come forth from a Jewish woman of Esfahan (Iran), followed by seventy thousand Jews wearing Persian shawls.” From ‘A’isha is transmitted the saying of the Prophet: “He will come forth from a Jewish woman of Esfahan.”
Then is come this fitna (sedition) which is the largest fitna since the creation of Adam until that hour, unto the ends of the Earth, and it will appear to permeate the land. For the time will come that no city will remain but that the Dajjal will enter it except Mecca and Medina and the al-Aqsa mosque and the mosque of Sinai.
Abu Huraira transmitted from the Prophet: “The one-eyed Dajjal, the false messiah, will come from the east in a time of discord and factions among the people, and will remain in the land forty days, Allah-willing, Allah knows the number, Allah knows the number, twice.”
Hafiz ibn Hajar said: “When will he be destroyed and who will kill him? He will be destroyed after he has appeared in all the earth except Mecca and Medina, then he will go to the holy house (Jerusalem) and ‘Isa (Muslim name for Jesus) will descend and kill him.” This was also narrated by Muslim.
Then Sheikh Mahmoud al-Masry spoke clearly about who are the followers of the anti-Christ:
We find that the kuffar (infidels) generally are the people most led astray by him and by the miracles Allah shows by his hand, and the Jews especially, for seventy thousand Jews will follow him. Also many Muslims will be led astray by the miracles which are done by his hand, and especially the Muslim masses and the ignorant among the bedouin, the women and the young.
Note again the use of Muhammad’s words in the ahadith to show that Jews are the eternal enemies of the Muslims and Allah, himself. Sure, some Muslims will be lead astray by the Dajjal, but it is from the Jews that he arises and it is Jews who flock to him.
And yet we somehow expect groups like Hamas and Hezbollah to make peace with the Jewish state?
