Dajjal's Donkey


نحمده ونصلى ونسلم على رسوله الكريم

Islamic prophecy is unique in associating the Antichrist, or Dajjal, with a donkey. In a previous post we looked at how the Bible says that the Davidic Messiah comes into Jerusalem “lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass” (Zechariah 9:9).

Riding upon a donkey or the foal of a donkey is associated with humility, a quality loved by God, and was one of the characteristics of the true Messiah, who rode into Jerusalem with humbleness seated upon a donkey.
But in contrast, Islamic prophecy reveals that the Antichrist is a man of arrogance who exalts himself. The donkey associated with the Antichrist is therefore not an ordinary donkey, but described as being exceedingly large:
وَلَهُ حِمَارٌ يَرْكَبُهُ ، عَرْضُ مَا بَيْنَ أُذُنَيْهِ أَرْبَعُونَ ذِرَاعًا . فَيَقُولُ لِلنَّاسِ : أَنَا رَبُّكُمْ . وَهُوَ أَعْوَرُ ، وَإِنَّ رَبَّكُمْ لَيْسَ بِأَعْوَرَ ، مَكْتُوبٌ بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ كَافِرٌ ك ف ر مُهَجَّاةٌ يَقْرَؤُهُ كُلُّ مُؤْمِنٍ ، كَاتِبٌ وَغَيْرُ كَاتِبٍ
He has a donkey upon which to ride. The width between its two ears is forty cubits. He will say to the people: “I am your Lord”. He is one-eyed, but verily your Lord is not one-eyed. Between his eyes is written Disbeliever “K F R”, every Believer shall be able to read it, both the literate and the illiterate.
(Musnad Ahmad)
It is my understanding that the Dajjal’s donkey is in fact an advanced form of transportation, perhaps the modern aircraft. 40 cubits is the average wingspan of a jet. According to another narration:
يَخْرُجُ الدَّجَّالُ عَلَى حِمَارٍ أَقْمَرَ ، مَا بَيْنَ أُذُنَيْهِ سَبْعُونَ بَاعًا
The Dajjal will come upon an exceedingly white donkey, the width between its two ears being seventy yards
(Tarikh al-Kabir of Imam al-Bukhari)


70 yards, or approximately 65 meters, is the average wingspan of a medium sized aircraft. The word Aqmar in this Hadith is a precise description of the silvery white and metallic color of modern aircraft.

The word “donkey” has been used to describe the Dajjal’s mode of transportation as a nod to the following Verse of the Holy Qur’an:
وَالْخَيْلَ وَالْبِغَالَ وَالْحَمِيرَ لِتَرْكَبُوهَا وَزِينَةً ۚ وَيَخْلُقُ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ
And [He created] the horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and [as] adornment. And He creates that which you do not know. (16:8)
Horses, mules and donkeys are the names of standard vehicles of transportation, which is why future modes of transportation regarding which the people at the time of the revelation of this Verse were unaware of will be described with the same names, i.e., horse, mule or donkey.
In another narration, Dajjal’s Donkey has been described as Rijs (filth or impurity):
يَخْرُجُ الدَّجَّالُ عَلَى حِمَارٍ , رِجْسٌ عَلَى رِجْسٍ
Dajjal will come upon a donkey. Filth upon filth!
(Musannaf of Ibn Abi Shayba)
Regarding the speed with with Dajjal will be able to travel, the Prophet () said:
كَالْغَيْثِ اسْتَدْبَرَتْهُ الرِّيحُ
Meaning he will move quickly upon the Earth, like a cloud driven by the wind (Sahih Muslim).
This Hadith indicates that the ability of Dajjal to move so fast will be through means of advanced transport, such as the modern aircraft.

  1. I am amazed how Muslims can so boldly lie to support their religion! For instance the Muslim bad copy of the Antichrist. In one hadith it states he rides on a donkey with a space of 40 cubits between his ears -- and you wrote:"40 cubits is the average wingspan of a jet" -- if you would take the time to research, you would discover that a cubit was approximately 18 inches or half a Meter. So 40 cubits is 20 Meters. In the next hadith you quote you claim: "that the distance between the ears of that donkey is 65 Meters, which is the average wingspan of a medioum-sized aircraft" First there is a big contradiction between 20 and 65 Meters (oops!) and the wingspan of an average passenger plane is not 65 Meters! One of the largest planes (not average) now in use is the 747-8 and it has a wingspan of 68 Meters -- an average aircraft is much less!
    Why do Muslims feel it is necessary to bolster their religion with untruths and bold-faced lies? In the Bibel Jesus stated that Satan is the father of lies!
    Oh, in Sahih Bukhari, it is stated that the first man God created, Adam, was 60 cubits tall -- 30 Meters! Muhammad was a very imaginative story-teller -- but I wouldn't want to entrust my eternal destiny to such stories. I have chosen to put my trust in Jesus Christ who is the Way the truth and the life -- and He proved it my raising the dead, giving the blind their sight and healing the crippled. What a contrast to Muhammad!

    1. Pardon me for the late reply. The fact of the matter is that there are indeed aircraft that have wingspans that range from 20 to 65 meters. So what is the lie?! You yourself acknowledge that one of the largest wingspans is 68 meters and therefore an average wingspan is "much less", i.e., falling into that 20 to 65 meter range that is predicted in the Ahadith of my beloved master Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him & his progeny) some 15 centuries ago. Concerning the Hadith of Adam being created sixty cubits in height, that is referring to his creation in the celestial realm not in this transient plane.
      Now let us examine your dishonest double standard. You claim that these are examples of imaginative story telling and tales, and insinuate that your Christian Bible is the truth because it does not contain such things. But a cursory reading of the Christian Bible reveals it contains even greater "imaginative tales" than what you objected to from Islamic texts. Who were the "Nephilim" mentioned in the Book of Genesis, mythical giants, the offspring of Angels and mortal human women?
      You claim that Jesus is divine, but you simultaneously believe he was murdered by mere humans, and while dying in agony screamed out "Eli, Eli Lama Sabachtani" (my God, my God why have you FORSAKEN me?) Does God forsake men of truth?
      Next, if you are an orthodox trinitarian Christian, you believe that Jesus "God the Son" is begotten of the Father, but that "God the Son" is eternal, without beginning, and is therefore "eternally begotten" which is logically impossible and an absurdity. If Satan is the author of lies, this is one of his masterpiece lies for sure!

    2. Have you actually done any research of the changes made to bible? Today’s Bible is purely a satanic pornography bookWhich part that was sensitised due to the people with power wants to follow their own desire? And all your celebrations were purely lies because the Roman emperor refused to have the same celebration time with the Jew? I.e changed the Easter time so it won’t be the same as the Passover? Why is that 25 December you have Santa Clause chanting ho ho ho? Because you all christians born from a hoe? Why Bunny lay eggs during Easter? Omg I’m tired to write down all the lies now
