the
Dajjāl
knowing the false messiah
Authentic-Translations.com/Dajjāl is a subsite of Authentic-Translations.com.
The content on this site is religious in nature and regards a particular theological phenomenon from an Islamic perspective. This phenomenon is an individual known as the Dajjāl, also known as the Anti-Christ, the False Messiah, or the Deceiver. This individual is believed to appear on earth toward the end of time, bringing with him major tribulations for people. His appearance is one of the major signs during the final events of history, thus it is a fundamental concept of belief in Islamic eschatology.

While the Dajjāl might be comparable to the Antichrist or Armilus in Christian and Jewish traditions respectively, perhaps no religion other than Islam describes with such detail his true nature, his prophesized appearance, the tribulations he will bring, his followers, and the miracles God will allow him to perform as severe tests of faith for people by which he will deceive many on earth. These details are found in Islam as is the death of the Dajjāl at the hands of the noble prophet and messenger, Jesus, the true Messiah and Christ, the son of Mary ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻬﻤﺎ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ.

It is the details mentioned above this site hopes to expound upon with Arabic-to-English translations from reliable souces of Islamic belief, namely the Quran and ḥadīth, the teachings of the prophet Muhammad ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ. Supplementing these sources are classical texts of past and contemporary scholars of Islam, further explaining the Quran and ḥadīth.

In an effort to fulfill this site's objective, careful scrutiny has been taken to exclude questionable content (from an Islamic perspective) such as weak ḥadīth or erroneous opinions and explanations having no solid basis in the religion of Islam. Still, to report any mistakes found in this site's content or to send comments, please contact me at info@authentic-translations.com.

In short, this site was designed, asking God for sincereity and correctness, to offer authentic information about the Dajjāl because he will be the worst trial in this world as Muhammad ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ said:

(( مَا بَيْنَ خَلْق آدَمَ ٳلى قِيَام السَّاعَةِ خَلقٌ أَكبَرُ مِن الدَّجَّال ))
“There is no creation worse (in tribulation), from the time Adam was created
until the final hour, than the Dajjāl.”
(Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim)
