THE FORTHCOMING JEWISH MESSIAH IS A FALSE SAVIOR
In Muslim, especially the Arab, culture, ‘Jew’ and ‘Dajjal’ are the most derogatory terms used to identify a person. Terms like ‘Satan’ or ‘pig’ comes only next. Let us first to learn a little about the Dajjal of Islam.
In Islamic scriptures, Dajjal is mentioned as Messiah ad-Dajjal. The term 'messiah', commonly used in the Jewish and Christian faiths, literally "anointed one", referring to a person who acts as a saviour or liberator of a people. In Islamic scriptures, the added term Dajjal to Messiah gives a negative meaning to the term 'messiah', - meaning a ‘false savior’ or oppressive villain. The term 'Messiah ad-Dajjal' in Islamic scriptures is used to refer to the person in the most derogatory term possible.
MEANEST DESCRIPTIONS OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH IN ISLAMIC SOURCES
Messiah Ad-Dajjal is described as:
“…..and was blind in the right eye, resembling Ibn Qatan (i.e. an infidel) in appearance….” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4:55:649)
“…..the Masih al-Dajjal is blind of right eye as if his eye is like a swollen grape,…” (Sahih Muslim 1:324)
“…..Ad-Dajjal) is blind in the right eye which looks like a grape bulging out (of its cluster)…..” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 5:59:685)
The Dajjal will have beastly character and a butcher. (Sahih Muslim 41:7019)
DAJJAL IS NONE BUT THE FORTHCOMING JEWISH MESSIAH
Ever since the Jews were forced into exile, first by the Babylonians, then by the Romans (Muslim invaders also joined in later on), they have been dreaming of a messiah who will arrive and lead them back to their homeland in Palestine. The talk of the messiah featured prominently in Jewish communities in dispersion outside of Palestine. Prophet Muhammad certainly had heard about it from the Jews of Medina many a times. In hadiths, prophet Muhammad tries to emphasize that the messiah the Jews were waiting for was actually the Messiah ad-Dajjal:
Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls. (Sahih Muslim 41:7034)
DAJJAL WILL HAVE MAGICAL POWERS LIKE JESUS, WILL BRING DEAD PERSON TO LIFE
Islamic scriptures also address Dajjal as the antichrist in a few places (Sahih Muslim 4:1217-1219). He is also shown as appearing alongside or behind Jesus in multiple references (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4:55:649, 5:59:685, 9:93:504, Sahih Muslim 1:323-325, Malik 49.2.2). But the ultimate intention of Muhammad was to show all other prophets as inferior to himself or as false. Jesus is no exception to that. So Dajjal will have the magical powers like those of Jesus and bring the dead to life like did Jesus. After all, Jesus' act of raising a person from the dead was nothing but a work of magic. Dajjal will torture and kill a Muslim in the most barbaric manner and then will raise him from death.
...The Dajjal would then order for breaking his head and utter (these words): Catch hold of him and break his head. He would be struck even on his back and on his stomach. Then the Dajjal would ask him: Don't you believe in me? He would say: You are a false Masih. He would then order him to be torn (into pieces) with a saw from the parting of his hair up to his legs. After that the Dajjal would walk between the two pieces. He would then say to him: Stand, and he would stand erect. He would then say to him: Don't you believe in me? And the person would say: It has only added to my insight concerning you (that you are really the Dajjal).... (Sahih Muslim 41:7019)
DAJJAL WILL BE BARREN
The main intention of discussing ad-Dajjal in this article starts here. In the 7th-century Arab society, being barren for a person was believed to be a curse from Allah. Islamic scriptures try to insult and belittle the Jews and Christians at every possible way. So, Muhammad labeled the awaited Jewish messiah ad-Dajjal as barren.
“…..Did Allah's Messenger not say he (Messiah Ad-Dajjal) would be barren and no child would be born to him,….” (Sahih Muslim 41:6994, 6996)
For the past fourteen centuries, Muslims have spread the propaganda that Muhammad was very fertile and had many children from his first wife Khadija and his slave-girl Mariya. This is portray that Islam’s prophet was greatly blessed by God. Whereas, the Messiahs of Jews and Christians are not and will not be fertile as god's punishment for their falsehood as messiahs. Islamic scriptures have missed no opportunities to fabricate fables in attempts to ridicule the faiths and beliefs of non-Islamic peoples.
