Do you know that Yajuj and Majuj are the barbaric tribes that will spread filth on Earth?
They are the horrendous tribes that are caged behind the iron and copper bars. They are the ones who will cause havoc on the face of the Earth.
It is stated in the Holy Quran that Allah has held Yajuj and Majuj behind a barrier that was created with iron and copper by Dhu’l-Qarnayn.
According to the Quran, they will be set loose shortly before the arrival of the Day of Judgment as Allah Almighty has mentioned:
“Until, when Ya’juj and Ma’juj are let loose (from their barrier), and they swiftly swarm from every mound. And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (to fulfillment)…”
Another Hadith is narrated by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad that the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Verily, Gog and Magog dig through the dam every day, till they could see the sun rays (through it), and their leader would say: ‘Go back and you will finish it tomorrow.’ On the next day, they find it as strong as before. Till when their appointed term comes and Allah desires to send them against mankind, they dig it till they could see the sun rays (through it) and their leader says: ‘Go back and you will finish it tomorrow, if Allah wills!’ On the next day, they find it as they had left the day before and they dig through it and come against mankind. They will drink (every drop of water they pass by). The people will resort to strongholds. And, Gog and Magog will throw their arrows towards the sky. When they come back to them stained with what looks like blood, they will say: ‘We have defeated the people on earth and those in the heaven as well.’ Then, Allah the Almighty will send against them worms in their necks that will kill them all. Allah’s Messenger (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul rests! Living creatures of the earth would go fat and be thankful due to eating their flesh and (drinking their) blood.”
Yajuj and majuj will rack and ruin the Earth. This world will practically be blown to smithereens upon their arrival.
A wave of fear rolled upon me when I read a dreadful fact about them. It is said that they will pass the Lake of Tiberias (Sea of Galilee) drinking all the water from there in and leaving not even a drop for us! How numerous they must be!
They will drink and consume all water they come across, and destroy everything they encounter.
Imagine this horrific scene of devastation. Today, we know of swarms of locusts that consume everything in their path, and the destruction they leave behind. Towards the onset of the final hour, Ya’juj and Ma’juj will be the swarm, humans intent on carnage in their quest for dominance…How arrogant and ignorant they must be to wish to conquer the heavens!
May Allah protect us from the trial of Ya’juj and Ma’juj.
Brother and sisters, it is important that we learn about these signs, and seek protection in Allah from it. For none with sound mind would like to face the peril of Ya’juj and Ma’juj.
