Hadhrat Imraan bin Husain (R.A.) relates that,
“I heard Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) saying: “Since the birth of Adam (A.S.) till the advent of Qiyamah there is no fitnah (evil, test) much greater that of Dajjal.”
Dajjal is the greatest fitnah of the world as mentioned by the prophet. It is believed that he would lead people to fire. He would give rise to conflict, war and bloodshed.
Who is Antichrist (Dajjal)
Antichrist is one of the signs of end of times. He would emerge before the doomsday and organize the evil powers together to fight against good. This would turn the people away from religious and moral values.
Dajjal would deceive the people with weak faith and lead them to the edge of fire. These people would follow him because of Dajjal displaying magic, hypnotism, false miracle etc. People with lack of knowledge and weak faith would follow him. He would be the major source of violence, terror and evil.
In view of Quran
In one verse it is stated that: If someone shuts his eyes to the remembrance of the All-Merciful, We assign him a satan who becomes his bosom friend (Surat Az-Zukhruf: 36)
Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters. (Surat Al-Ma’ida: 64)
Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. ( Surat Al-Anfal: 73)
The above ayahs draw the true picture of the evil forces of the world. Satan is the friend of people who have deviated and who have weak faith. This is why Dajjal would follow satan. He would be scared of satan instead of being scared of Allah.
