Where will the Dajjal Appear?
Are there any hadiths informing us of the place where the dajjal will come from?
There are hadiths which indicate different places where the dajjal will appear.
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (ra) The Prophet (pbuh) said:
"Ad-Dajjal will come and encamp at a place close to Madinah and then Madinah will shake thrice whereupon every Kafir (disbeliever) and hypocrite will go out (of Medina) towards him."
(Sahih Al-Bukhari, 9.239)
"There will be no land which will not be trampled by Dajjal (the Antichrist) but Makkah and Al-Madinah.” (Muslim)
In another hadith narrated by Anas ibn Malik (ra) Allah's Apostle (pbuh) said,
“The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls. “
“He will appear on the way between Syria and Iraq and will spread mischief right and left. O slaves of Allah! Remain adhered to the truth.'' (Muslim, 1808)
“Dajjal will emerge from a region in the east called “Khorasan”.” (Ibn-I Maja, Tirmidhi)
Many scholars interpret the different narrations as following: although there are some hadths about dajjal which are not mutawatir (successive narration), they are confirmed by the mutawatir ones about the same issue, so there is no doubt in their accuracy. Thus, to deny the concept of dajjal which is declared in many mutawatir hadiths is kufr (disbelief). However, dajjal is not only one person but many people. Their appearance times are not obvious. While there may be a few dajjals at one time, they can appear at different times as well.
Depending on the amount of disbelief and oppression, dajjal may be small or big. The greatest dajjal is the final dajjal who will come at the advent of Qıyamah (the end of the world) in the last time of akhir zaman (the latest time of the world).
In conclusion, since there are more than one dajjal, the places that they will appear will be various. Scholars indicate that mulhid and mufsid people (disbeliever that make mischief) who can be called as “dajjal” have appeared from the places mentioned in the hadiths.
