Coming of Two Prophets When the Antichrist Emerges

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

My beloved master the holy Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said:

إنه لم يكن نبي إلا وقد أنذر الدجال أمته ألا وإنه أعور عين الشمال وباليمنى ظفرة غليظة بين عينيه كافر يعني مكتوب ك ف ر ويخرج معه واديان أحدهما جنة وأخرى نار فناره جنة وجنته نار فيقول الدجال للناس ألست ربكم أحيي وأميت ومعه ‌نبيان ‌من ‌الأنبياء إني لأعرف اسمهما واسم آبائهما لو شئت أن أسميهما سميتهما أحدهما عن يمينه والآخر عن يساره فيقول ألست بربكم أحيي وأميت فيقول أحدهما كذبت فلا يسمعه أحد من الناس إلا صاحبه ويقول الآخر صدقت ويسمعه الناس وذلك فتنة ثم يسير حتى يأتي المدينة فيقول: هذه قرية ذاك الرجل فلا يؤذن له أن يدخلها ثم يسير حتى يأتي الشام فيهلكه الله عند عقبة أفيق

There wasn’t a prophet except he warned his Ummah about the Dajjal. Beware, he is blind in the left eye and his right eye is protruding. Between his eyes is written K F R. He will come with two valleys, the first is a garden and the second is a fire. But his fire is a garden and his garden is fire. The Dajjal will say to the people: “Am I not your Lord, giving life and death?” And there shall be with him two prophets from among the Prophets. I know their names and the names of their fathers. If I wished I could name them. The first of them at his right side and the other at his left side. When he [Dajjal] says: “Am I not your Lord, giving life and death?” the first [prophet] will say “you have lied” but no one from the people will hear him except his companion, the second [prophet] who will say to him “you have said the truth” which will be heard by the people, and that shall be a trial. Then he will travel until he comes to the city and say “this is the town of that man” but he will be prevented from entering it. Then he will travel till he comes to the Levant and Allah shall destroy him at the slope of Afiq (Musnad Abi Daud at-Tayalisi; v.2 p.430):


Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul-Muhsin at-Turki in his checking of this Musnad declared the Hadith ‘isnaduhu hasan’.

This narration is interesting in that it speaks of the future appearance of two Prophets عليهما السلام calling into question the traditional or standard interpretation of the doctrine of khatm an-Nubuwwah.

However, another version of this Hadith explains that the two Prophets are in fact two Angels that come in the form of Prophets:

معه ‌ملكان من الملائكة يشبهان نبيين من الأنبياء لو شئت سميتهما بأسمائهما وأسماء آبائهما

He [Dajjal] comes with two Angels from among the Angels, resembling two Prophets from among the Prophets. If I wished I could name them (Musnad Ahmad; v.36, p.258):


However, in his checking of the Musnad, Shuaib Arnaut declared this narration da’if (weak).

There appears to be some connection between this prophesy of two Prophets who appear during the time of the Dajjal and the Two Witnesses spoken of in the eleventh chapter of the Christian Book of Revelation, who are killed by the Beast. Some early Christian theologians like Tertullian, Irenaeus and Hippolytus of Rome, explained that the Two Witnesses are the two ancient prophets Enoch and Elijah who did not die but were taken by God from this world alive. Incidentally, some Muslims believe that the prophets Idris [Enoch] and Ilyas [Elias] are alive like Jesus. It is also said that the man whom the Dajjal shall kill and resurrect is al-Khidr

  1. وَ لَوۡ جَعَلۡنٰہُ مَلَکًا لَّجَعَلۡنٰہُ رَجُلًا وَّ لَلَبَسۡنَا عَلَیۡہِمۡ مَّا یَلۡبِسُوۡنَ
    And if We had appointed as Messenger an angel, We would have made him appear as a man; and thus We would have made confused to them that which they are themselves making confused. (Surah 6:9)
    قُلۡ لَّوۡ کَانَ فِی الۡاَرۡضِ مَلٰٓئِکَۃٌ یَّمۡشُوۡنَ مُطۡمَئِنِّیۡنَ لَنَزَّلۡنَا عَلَیۡہِمۡ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ مَلَکًا رَّسُوۡلًا
    Say, ‘Had there been in the earth angels walking about in peace and quiet, [a]We should have certainly sent down to them from heaven an angel as a Messenger.’(Surah 17:95)
    These Ayats suggest that the two Prophets who will appear during the time of the Dajjal will be human Prophets and not Angels.
