Question: When will the Dajjaal appear?
Answer: The appearance of the Dajjaal is from the signs of the Hour but it is not (at) a definite (time). Because no one knows when the Hour is except Allaah and also we do not know about the signs except what has already manifested. So the time of the Dajjaal’s appearance is not known to us but we do know that he is from the signs of the Hour.
Question: What will the Dajjaal call to?
Answer: It is related that at first when he appears, he will call to Islaam and he will say: I am a Muslim. And he will defend Islaam. After that, he will claim prophethood and that he is a prophet. After that, he will claim to be an ilah (deity) and this is at the end of his call. This was the beginning of Firawn’s call and it is the call to lordship.
Question: Is Dajjal from the children of Adam?
Answer: The Dajjal is from the children of Adam (human). Some of the ‘Ulema say: He is a shaytaan. And some of them say: His father is human and his mother is a jinn. And these statements are not correct. Then it is apparent that the Dajjaal is from the children of Adam and that he needs to eat and drink and other than this. And because of this, ‘Eesaa (عليه السلام) will kill him in an ordinary way as any of mankind is killed.
