    Default What is meant by "Forty days; a day like a year, a day like a month........"?



    what is meant by the bolded part? how will this occur?

    The Sahabah (radi Allahu anhum) asked Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) about the Dajjal, “O Messenger of Allah, how long will he stay on earth?” He replied, “Forty days; a day like a year, a day like a month, a day like a week, and the rest of the days like your days.” The Sahabah asked, “O Messenger of Allah, on that day which is like a year, will the Salat (prayers) of one day be sufficient for us?” Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “No. Calculate the time (for prayer).” [Sahih Muslim]

    Wasalaam,

    Dajjal will stay on the earth for 40 days and the first day will be equal to of length of 1 year and the second day will be of 1 month and third day will be of 1 week and rest of the days will be as usual....as read in the book " Dajjal Kon Kab Kahan"

    but what does it actually mean. in what sense will this happen? what can cause such a thing. how will it physically be possible? will it happen in a way that will go against the present laws of nature as we understand them?

    It might not be in a literal sense. It may be using "day" as along period of time, and thens tating one period of 1 year, 1 period of 1 month etc... Although, I'm not fluent in Arabic, so this is merely a laymans suggestion.

    yes some people do say that it might not be literal. i dont understand arabic either but the english translation seems to suggest that the sahaba (rd) took the meaning to be literal hence their enquiry about how to pray salaat and the Prophet answer to calculate the time for prayers.

    Bismillahi
    Walaikum assalam
    I thought it means those part of earth where days are longer like that goes for months, that is polar region, Greenland, Norway, northern Finland. I think a normal day comprise of time of daylight and night. In some places there will be daylight for 6 months continuously and night for 6 months and so 1 year is like one day=daylight+night and in some regions, day light and night will extend for weeks and so on. In other regions, it will be like normal days, like Asia, middle east and so on. This is what I read somewhere. The sahabahs were concerned of prayers in such regions as normally the time of prayers is based on sun and the Prophet SAW replied what is given in the hadith Allahu alam.

    just a thought.....

    in the uk summertime we have a little problem with salaat timings. technically speaking maghrib doesnt end as there always remains the white light on the horizon and even sometimes the red light on the horizon. so i believe the ulama calculate the time as best as they can in order to set the time for isha.

    I think so in many regions of northern Europe too when we cant even see any darkness, ulema somehow calculate the time. I think the hadith means that the Dajjal will travel in different regions of the earth for 4o days. Allahu alam.

    There will be an actual day like a year, just like there be an actual day when the sun rises from the west.

    how that will occur we can only speculate. My own thoughts on this are that cataclysmic events on a global scale will occur on earth that will alter the axis and rotation of the earth.

    Perhaps the most likely contender for this is a SUPERQUAKE or a series of large earthquakes one after another in quick succession.

    From the signs perhaps the most authentic signs of the arrival of the Mahdi are earthquakes and intense disputes:

    ''He will be sent at a time of intense disputes and differences among people and earthquakes.'' (Ahmad)

    If we look at another two hadeeths that mention earthquakes we find that the Prophet s.a.w also linked time-or to be more particular- the length of the day to earthquakes:


    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until (religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious learned men), earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, afflictions will appear, murders will increase and money will overflow amongst you." (Bukhari)

    Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah's Apostle, till the religious knowledge is taken away by the death of Religious scholars earthquakes will increase in number time will pass quickly, (Bukhari)

    okay now to the interesting part, can earthquakes affect time, i.e increse or decrease the duration of the day on earth?

    Quakes affect the earths axis and all the recent earthquakes have shortened the earths day and the earths axis.

    http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines...shortens-days/

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...lted-25cm.html


    Major natural catastrophes will hit the earth soon, an unparrelled famine before the arrival of the dajjal, death of all living things and animals, sudden death, a smoke that goes all round the earth, hot in winter cold in summer, inhabitated cities will become ruins, earthquakes earthquakes earthquakes....

    All of these are signs and smyptoms of major catastrophes that will drastically alter life on earth and send us back to an era without modern technology.
