Yajooj Majooj Story:
The emergence of the nation Yajooj and Majooj near the Judgment day is one of the major sign. Yajuj Majuj are also the creation of Allah (SWT).
Moreover, this nation used to spend free life in the beginning. In this post, I am going to discuss Yajooj and Majooj story briefly with you.
- What happened to this nation?
- Who are Yajooj Majooj?
Hazrat Zulqarnian and Yajooj Majooj Story:
Hazrat Zulqarnian (A.S) traveled from East to West and North to South. When he was traveling the world, he imprisoned the gog and magog behind a very thick wall of Iron,wood and coal. Hazrat Zulqarnian (A.S) went East, the people of East said to him, “In between these mountains, there is a nation called gog and magog, they look like animals. Their teeth are like wild animals. Every time they come out they eat everything like snakes, scorpions, horses, donkeys, vegetables and wild animals. We will give you anything if you build a wall between the gog and magog and us so that they will not harm us.”
Hazrat Zulqarnian (A.S) said, “I don’t need money or anything, but you can help me by bringing me pieces of iron, wood and coal.” When they brought these things to build wall, Hazrat Zulqarnian (A.S) started to build the wall. After this, he started to blow on it. When it became red-hot. Hazrat Zulqarnian (A.S) asked them to bring liquid copper.” He put this liquid copper on the wall and make it very strong and thick. Then he said, “They will come out from behind the wall, when Allah wants them to”
From that day Yajooj Majooj are captured behind this wall. Everyday, they try to dig to break this wall. When the sun sets, the wall is as thin as a paper. Their leader says, “Come on, Leave it and let’s go home now, it is like a page. We will come tomorrow and break it down soon ”. When they come the next day, by the will of Allah, the wall is as strong as before.This process will continue till the day when ALLAH allows the wall to be broken and gog and magog will come out. . This will be the time when Hazrat Isa (A.S) will be ruling the world. Allah will order Hazrat Isa (A.S) to take all his followers to the mountain of Tur.
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) also told his people about Yajooj Majooj fitnah. 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 Yajuj Majuj Come:
The question is when will gog magog come? The Gog and Magog will come out near the end times and eat the people in the world. They will cause much trouble in this world. They will drink all the water from the East and all the water from Buhaira Tabria. Wherever they will find water, they will drink all of it. If gog magog find any humans they will eat them.
Allah says in Quran:”But when Yajooj and Majooj are let loose and they rush headlong down every hill”. (Quran 21:97)
Than finally, Allah will kill finally Yajooj and Majooj when Prophet Isa (A.S) and Muslims will pray to Allah to keep them safe from their anarchy. After the end of Gog Magog, this earth will again become a place of peace and happiness.
