The hole of the Gorge Dam is a symbolic Sign in my opinion, Meaning once the hole was Created is when the Gog and magog would spread hence they first spread northward towards Russia. some of them today are jewish and some of them are christians and ofcourse few of them convert to islam alhamdudliah. They are not Real jewish by ancestory but rather converted to judiasim to protect their kingdom which was kazaria from the islamic south and christian east since they practised paganism exactly what Kabalah Jews partially believe in that is why the orthodox jews reject them strongly.
Well I dont think I can say anything exact about them - the one shaykh I was listening to he was saying definite and exact things about them - I am on the fence about all that but lots of signs are there in the open about these people. Possibly the Khazaars and now Ashkenazi Jews are their relatives or share some ancestral lineage with Yajuj Majuj?
Most generous of mankind, I have no one to take refuge in,
Except you at the occurrence of widespread calamity.
Hadhrat Abu Hurairah Radi-Allahu anhu narrates that every day Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj break (dig) through the wall erected by Zul Qarnain Alayhi Salam until they reach the end of it to that extent that they can actually see the light on the other side. They then return (home) saying that 'We will break through tomorrow.' But Allah Ta'ala causes the wall to revert to its original thickness and the next day they start digging through the wall all over again, and this process continues each day until as long as Allah wills them to remain imprisoned. When Allah wishes them to be released, then at the end of the day they will say, "If Allah wills, tomorrow we will break through." The following day they will find the wall as they had left it the previous day (i.e. it will not have returned to its orginal state) and after breaking the remaining part of it they will emerge."
(Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)
Commenting on the above hadith, Allamah Ibn Arabi says, Three miracles are evident in this Hadith:
1.) It never occurs to these tribes that they must continue work during the night. After all, they are in such large numbers that they can easily delegate the work among themselves and work in shifts. But Allah does not allow this thought to occur to them.
2.) It never occurs to them that they can merely cross the mountains or scale the wall, which they can do through the aid of equipment and implements wich they possess in large numbers. According to a narration by Wahab ibn Munabbah it is known that these tribes are agriculturists and artisians possessing various types of equipment.
3.) The thought of saying "If Allah wills" never enters their minds and it will only occur to them to say it when Allah wills that they be released.
Why is it so difficult for us to believe that there actually is such a tribe
behind mountains who will be released on the earth in the end of times .
Hypothesis is a way out of not able to rationalize what is said in the quran
As far as I know the time of Yajooj and majooj is described in hadith is
after the events of mahdi and hazrat isa in the last hours after the whole
world will be conquered by mahdi army and converted to islam .
So the yajooj and majooj being the mordern day euroasians or mongolic tribes do not stand to reason.
I think this opinion was also held by Mawlana Anwar Shah Kashmiri (ra) that Ya'juj Ma'juj are already spreading fitnah on the earth. Their argument is that there is no solid text to say that YM must come at the end of time just before the DoJ.
Mufti Sajjad has written on this topic too in a book called Gog and Magog: A historical Analysis http://www.as-suffa.org/item/gog-magog.html
Here is an online piece by Mufti Sajjad addressed to Christians I think: http://www.scribd.com/sajad_muhammad...You-With-Jesus
