Yajooj and Majooj Story:
The emergence of the nation Yajooj and Majooj near the Day of the Judgment is one of the major signs of the Day of the Judgment in Islam. Yajooj and Majooj are also the creation of Allah. This nation used to spend free life in the beginning. What happened to this nation? Who are Yajooj and Majooj? In this post, I am going to discuss Yajooj and Majooj story briefly with you.
Allah Says in Quran:“But when Ya’jooj and Ma’jooj are let loose and they rush headlong down every hill” (Quran 21:97)
History of Yajooj and Majooj:
- Thul Qarnayn, a pious ruler spread the message of Allah in many parts of this world as he used to travel and conquer the lands. He wanted to establish peace and justice on this land.
- Once Thul Qarnayn carried out a mission to travel the land from East to West and North to South. On his travel to the Far East, he met some people and they told him about the tribe Yajooj and Majooj.
- The people complained Thul Qarnayn that Yajooj and Majooj were spreading anarchy and plunder. They requested him to save them from this nation by erecting a barrier between them and gog and magog tribe.
- On hearing their request, Thul Qarnayn erected a thick wall to keep them safe from the atrocities of Yajooj and Majooj. The ruler, Thul Qarnayn imprisoned Yajooj and Majooj behind this thick wall and they are still behind this wall.
- Yajooj and Majooj cannot cross this thick wall. They try to consume it daily but fail. Only by the will of Allah, they will come out again.
- Holy Prophet (S.A.W) also told his people about Yajooj and Majooj in Islam. As narrated by Abu Huraira, Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said: Every day Yajooj and Majooj break (dig) through the wall erected by Thul-Qarnayn until they reach the end of it, to that extent that they can actually see the light on the other side. They then return (home) saying that ‘We will resume tomorrow.’ But Allah Almighty causes the wall to return to its original thickness, and the next day they start digging through the wall all over again. This process continues each day until as long as Allah wills them to remain imprisoned. When Allah wills them to be released, then at the end of the day they will say,
“If Allah wills, tomorrow we will break through.” The following day they will find the wall as they had left it the previous day (i.e. it will not have returned to its original state) and after breaking the remaining part of it they will emerge.” (Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah).
When Will Yajooj and Majooj Come:
- The question is when will gog magog come? Yajooj and Majooj will come near the Day of the Judgment. They will cause much trouble in this world. They will kill and eat the human beings. There will be no water as they will drink every drop of water on this earth. People will face the shortage of food.
- Allah will kill finally Yajooj and Majooj when Prophet Isa and Muslims will pray to Allah to keep them safe from their anarchy. After the end of Yajooj and Majooj, this earth will again become a place of peace and happiness.
This is all about Yajooj and Majooj story. They are very powerful and different from human beings. They faces are wide and eyes are small. May Allah keep Muslims safe from the trouble of Yajooj and Majooj!
