In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful
This is our second class in our series of lectures about the Hereafter. This presentation deals with: order of the major signs, the story of Dajjal and the descent of ‘Esaa.
Poems by our students about the 10 Major Signs (may Allah reward them with good!)
1. Before Yawmul Qiyaamah
Written by Kashaf, Tuhin, Nazaha
A dajjal, al messiahud-dajjal, a dajjal
His face is white,
He has horrible sight
He’s fat and short that makes him ugly right?
Isa ibn maryam will descend,
The believers he will defend,
And ad-dajjal will meet his end.
Behind the wall yajjujj and majujj dig,
Their eyes are small but their faces are big,
By the will of Allah they will be free,
Their death by worms is Allah’s Decree.
There will be three landslides,
That will destroy land from all sides.
“فَارْتَقِبْ يَوْمَ تَأْتِي السَّمَاءُ بِدُخَانٍ مُّبِينٍ”
“يَغْشَى النَّاسَ هَٰذَا عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ”
And if you are a believer refer back to verse seven!
“رَبِّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِن كُنتُم مُّوقِنِينَ”
The sun will rise from the west,
The doors will close for those who believed and those who transgressed.
The torment of Allah will befall,
And out the beast will crawl
The believers and nonbelievers he will mark.
In Yemen a fire will spark.
The trumpet will sound,
and the mountains will fall to the ground
Yawmil Qiyama, Yawmil Akhira, Yawmil Hisaab
We seek refuge from the most severe ‘adhaab.
2. Amna I.
Listen up Muslim Ummah all around the sphere
Because, yes, it’s true, all the rumors you hear.
The final days are upon us, so very near.
When you see these ten major signs, it will become very clear.
Dajjal will come and cause havoc all about
He’s the greatest fitnah ever, so you better watch out.
Hazrat Isa (AS) will kill him, so be on the lookout.
It will be a great time for the believers, no doubt.
But when Ya’juj and Ma’juj are set free,
They will drink all the water from any river they see.
To Mount Tur Prophet Isa and his people will flee,
Until worms destroy Ya’juj and Ma’juj’s very entities.
Next come landslides in the east and the west
Along with the Arabian Peninsula, leaving everyone distressed.
Then the Earth will be covered with Adh-Dukhan, the smoke.
40 days and 40 nights the sky will be cloaked.
After the sun will rise from the west to the east
And out will emerge a big, talking beast.
Last but not least,
A fire in Yemen will be released.
And before you know it, the trumpet will be blown.
The world will end along with all that we’ve known.
3. Atef C.
If you hear that dajjal is within your vicinity
Run away because you can’t beat him with your strategy
Allah SWT alarms us about his signs
Your blood will be rushing due to the fear of torment
The People will be scattered like moths
Ahh Luster of enjoyment
will come to an end
No adornments or spas enjoy in
one can’t calculate time nor will it be on your side
Even Albert Einstein will fail to decide
You won’t be able to count your future
After hearing about yajujj and majujj
4. Jiniya A.
The Day, the Day is near
Prepare and bring yourselves to fear
The signs, the signs
You will shed tears
Of the Almighty’s decree
He will make it clear
Avoid the false messiah
Avoid Yajuj and Majuj
For your sake
In the path that will illuminate your way
This world is merely a delusion
Esa bin Maryam will descend down
And wipe off his impostor, off
Off the face of this planet
Blessed, blessed life follows
But do not underestimate this factor
Smoke will proliferate
Land slides vast
West to East, the sun will rise
Repentance shall no longer be asked
The beast, the trumpet
Time is up, the sound crushes
Believers and disbelievers
Shall be gathered abode
This Day, we will think
Came too fast
Ya Rabbi nafsi, nafsi!
This test, have we passed?
5. Rashad A.
I should have believed when I seen the smoke.
It choked my throat and broke my hope.
For it was no ordinary smoke.
So I begged and I invoked and the smoke went afloat.
But no sooner did our evils resume.
For Allah did say
إنا كاشفوا العذاب قايلا إنكم عائدون
So we sinned and we played.
Enjoying what little time remained.
But now I fear it may be too late.
The sun’s risen from the west and I plead for my fate.
How I wish I can negate my mistakes and stay straight on the path to the all great
So I prostrate and I supplicate.
But the gate of forgiveness has been closed shut.
And the hour awaits.
