Dajjal & His Donkey by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani


As-Salamu Alekum My Sayeddi,
Peace be upon our Prophet Muhammed(S), May Allah shower his infinite mercy upon you My Sayeddi, Upon our master Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani and Grand Shaykh Abdullah Faiz Ad-Dagestani Q.S.

My Sayeddi, Our Prophet Muhammed(S) said Dajjal shall come on a Donkey. Many contemporary Muslim scholars say the donkey is already here and that it is the Aircraft. I ask you, My Sayeddi is this correlation an accurate one?

As-Salamu Aleikum.


In an authentic hadith Sayyidina `Ali (r) related that the Prophet (s) said:

The Dajjāl uses a special kind of donkey possessing two enormous ears, each of which is at least 30 arms-lengths, moving in the skies, with the clouds so near he can reach them with his hand and it travels faster than the sun going to its sunset. (Mentioned in Kanz ul-`Ummal and `Uqd ad-Durrar, Imam al-Maqdisi.)

The Prophet (s) said, regarding the Dajjāl’s donkey:

يقول الرسول الكريم صلى الله عليه وسلم عن هذا الحمار: يأكل الحجارة ويسبقه جبل من دخان ويركب الناس في جوفه وليس على ظهره

He eats rocks and a mountain of smoke precedes him and people ride inside him, and not on his back.

Another version has:

In front of him is something like a mountain of smoke and behind him something like a green mountain, calling to men in a loud voice, “come to me, my sincere ones, my saints, come to me my lovers, come to me I am going to create for you everything good.” (al-Hakim and bin Asakir)

This means that as he traverses the earth it moves under him like a green expanse.

Another hadith mentioned that the Dajjāl’s donkey eats fire within its body and it has an opening from which fire and smoke emerge. It moves with a very high speed over land, oceans and skies. Its color is very white like the moon. Between one step and another is like the walking of a day and a night. On earth its length is ~180 ft.

We may possibly infer then that the Dajjāl’s precursors of this time will use airplanes for their evil work as described clearly in hadith of the Prophet (s). We see this today where these arch-deceivers use airplanes to hijack and kidnap and kill, and this has been their modus operandi now for over 30 years.

عن جابر رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يخرج الدجال في خفة من الدين وإدبار من العلم وله أربعون يوماً يسيحها اليوم منها كالسنة واليوم كالشهر واليوم كالجمعة ثم سائر أيامه مثل أيامكم وله حمار يركبه عرض ما بين أذنيه أربعون ذراعا يأتي الناس فيقول أنا ربكم وإن ربكم ليس بأعور مكتوب بين عينيه ك ف ر يقرأه كل مؤمن كاتب وغير كاتب يمر بكل ماء ومنهل إلا المدينة ومكة حرمهما الله عليه وقامت الملائكة بأبوابهما”

The Dajjāl emerges in time where there is lightness/weakness in religion and a lack of knowledge… the donkey he rides has a girth of 40 arm-lengths between its two ears [100 feet]… (al-Hakim’s al-Mustadrak.)

These are clear descriptions of an airplane where the ears are the wings and the color described, aqmar, means pearly like the moon – the color of many aircraft today.
