When will Maseeh ad-Dajjal appear? What events will precede his appearance?
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had warned his Ummah that Dajjal would not appear among people until they would forget about him and until the Imams would stop mentioning him in the Masjid. If we stop and think when was the last time the Imam in the Masjid spoke about Dajjal, we would find it hard to remember when it was. This is an indicator that the time of his coming is getting close. This is only a sign of his coming. As for when exactly he would come, only Allah has knowledge of that.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said that Dajjal wouldn’t appear until after three years in which, the first year of those three years, Allah will hold back one-third of the rain and one-third of the crops, two-thirds of rain and crops will be held in the second year, and the rain will be withheld completely in the third year. This is the time when Maseeh ad-Dajjaal will appear.< Back to Questions
