Hadith Explanation

Dajjal is One-Eyed

“The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) stood among the people, he praised Allah as is due to Him, then he mentioned the Dajjal and he said: ‘Indeed I warn you of him. There has not been a Prophet except that he warned his people, and Nuh indeed warned his people – but I am to say something about him that no Prophet has said to his people: You should know that he is one-eyed, and Allah is certainly not one-eyed’…. ‘You must know that not one of you will ever see his Lord until he dies. And indeed, he (the Dajjal) has ‘Kafir’ written between his eyes; everyone who is averse to his behaviour shall read it.’” (Sahih hadith) [Chapters on Al-Fitan: Jami At-Tirmidhi]

The Dajjal will claim divinity for himself despite being in human form. Dajjal will be visible to all human beings, as another human being. Yet, Allah Most High does not take human form and the eyes of any mortal human being are not capable of viewing Him in this life on earth.

Furthermore, Dajjal will be one-eyed. Some ahadith indicate that he will be blind in one eye with thick skin covering it [Sahih Muslim] and other ahadith indicate that one of his eyes will be like a floating or hanging grape. [Sahih Muslim] Thus, he will probably be defective in both eyes, with one eye blind while the other is also not normal to look at.

The word ‘kafir/disbeliever’ will be inscribed between his two eyes. His defects will be visible and every Muslim, literate or illiterate, will be able to read the word ‘Kafir’ on his forehead. We should know that Dajjal is not Allah since Allah Most high is free of all defects. He is nothing but nobleness and perfection.

Thus these are three proofs that Dajjal is a liar and not Allah (subhana wa ta’ala): 1. that he is visible to humans 2. that he is one-eyed 3. that he has “kafir” written on his forehead.
