Protection from Dajjal

Dajjal will be set unto us, that much is guaranteed and that time is drawing near. If we were to live long enough when the time comes, how do we protect ourselves from the great fitna of Dajjal? The following are some of the well-known hadith regarding it.

Reciting of Surah Kahf The recitation of Surah Kahf is a safe guard from the Dajjal’s turmoil. The Prophet SAW said, “Whoever memorises the first ten verses of Surah Kahf will be safe from the Dajjal’s Fitna.” (Abu-Darda / Muslim) The Prophet  SAW said, ‘Whoever meets the Dajjal amongst you then he should recite the opening verse of Surah Kahf onto him.” (Nawwas-b-Samaan / Muslim)

Seeking refuge in Allah Whoever seeks Allah’s refuge and protection from Dajjal’s fitna especially in Salah, Insyaallah will be protected. The Prophet SAW would pray in Salah, “Oh Allah protect me from the punishment of the grave and protect me from Dajjal’s fitna.” (Aisha / Bukhari / Muslim)

Staying miles apart When the Dajjal appears one should stay as far away from him as possible. The Prophet  SAW said, “Those who hear about the Dajjal should stay far from him. By Allah! A person will approach him thinking him to be a believer, but on seeing his amazing feats he will become his follower.” (Imran-b-Hussain / Abu Daud)

Safe Haven of Makkah and Madinah One should try to migrate to Makkah or Madinah, as he will not be able to enter these two holy cities. Thus one will be protected from his fitna. (Fatimah-b-Qais / Muslim)

Knowledge of Allah’s Attributes One should seek Islamic knowledge especially knowledge of Allah’s attributes. By possessing knowledge of Allah’s attributes one will not be misled by the Dajjal. This knowledge teaches that Allah is perfect, can’t be seen, and not in need of anything while the Dajjal is imperfect, can be seen by both believers and non-believers and in need of food and water.

  • Salam alaikum, thank you may Allah reward you for posting this reminder to the Muslims, of the very things our own beloved Prophet, SAAWS, taught us to protect ourselves from the Dajjal’s tribulation.

    So many people are confused about the matter concerning the Dajjal, for example most of the Muslims still believe he is on an Island, in spite of numerous hadiths clarifying the Island narration and pointing out that the Dajjal is not on an Island anymore but was indeed in the very midst of the Muslims.

    Reading Surah Kahf on a regular basis and memorizing the first 10 ayats is a protection and inshallah hopefully many more eyes will be opened and awakened to the danger currently faced by the Dajjal’s continual presence in our very midst.
