Next came the different phases or stages in the Dajjal's life. First came the feudal system, the inadequacies and injustices of which brought about the next step, capitalist monarchies. As the ill-effects of that system became too much for the common man to bear, socialism and its crude form communism surfaced. Time and time again, the adherents of different views have fought amongst themselves, like when democratic and communist forces joined to oust dictatorial leaderships during the WWII. Soon after that, the democratic and communist systems engaged in cold war for more than four decades. The only reason full-scale wars did not erupt between these forces was the nuclear deterrent. By the end of the WWII, both the democratic and communist forces were in possession of nuclear arsenal and that worked as the only deterrent for WWIII. However, although the Dajjal has undergone different phases, such as infancy, childhood and reached adulthood in its span, and has seen clashes among its followers, it remains a single entity, a massive, one-eyed soulless giant -the Judeo-Christian materialistic civilization.
As for the North Korean soldiers who opted not to return, they chose the softer or milder version of the Dajjal over the severest. The ratio of the prisoners exchanged during the Korean War proves the truth behind the Hadis of the Messenger of Allah where he stated that the Dajjal will be in possession to two things similar to heaven and hell. It will call on mankind to accept it as their Lord (Rub), i.e. accept its word over that of Allah's and those who do so will be awarded places in its heaven, which will be hell for them. Those who reject it will be flung into its hell and that will be heaven for them'. Today this wide world, excepting the holy cities of Makka and Madina has accepted the Dajjal's dominion, its so-called heaven, which is in reality, hell. The prophecy of the last Messenger has come true to the letter. Then has been further development in the life of the Dajjal. It has grown to its maturity. After the collapse of its extreme form the Communist Soviet Unions, the milder form of the Dajjal, Secular Democracy is now the one eyed giant that has the world at its feet; including the populace which claims to be Mo’men, Muslim and Ummat-e-Mohammadi i.e. the nation of Mohammad (s.a.s) that runs to the mosques five times a day, fasts the month of Ramadan and makes pilgrimage to Makkah. Even where the Dajjal was divided between its milder and extreme forms it was dominant over the world, each trying to impose its own form on it. Now that the extreme form has become comparatively powerless, the middle form has become arrogant and brazenly demanding to be accepted as the lord of the mankind. It has repeatedly declared that it would establish Secular Democracy i.e. Sovereignty of Man, in place of sovereignty of Allah on every inch of the earth. (Recall Hadis no. XIII- where the Messenger of Allah prophesied that there will be not a piece of land or water where the Dajjal's power and influence will not be present.)
The Messenger has said, "The word 'Kafer' (disbeliever) will be written between the Dajjal's eyes. Only believers (even those who are illiterate) shall be able to read it; disbelievers even those who are literate will neither see nor read it." -from Abu Horayra (ra), Hozayfa (ra), and Anas (ra)…Bokhari, Muslim.
THIS IS one of the most important and significant Hadis regarding the gravity of the Dajjal's situation. It is apparent from the narration that the word 'Kafer' meaning disbeliever, will not be written literally with alphabets on the Dajjal's forehead, since Mo'mens,believers even if they happen to be illiterate will perceive the Dajjal as an disbeliever while on the other hand, no matter how highly educated or intellectual a person might be, if he/she is not a believer will not be able to gauge the writing on Dajjal's forehead. Therefore, it is apparent that it will not be written with the letters 'qaf (ك)', 'fay (ف)' and 'ray (ر)'. Now, then who are these Mo'mens or believers who will see what others won't? By the Creator's own definition, 'the (true) believers are only those who believe in Allah and His Messenger and afterward do not doubt, and strive and struggle with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah. Such are the sincere.'
We should bear in mind that this description befits only those who accept and believe in Allah's all-encompassing Tawheed, in His Sovereignty, those who accept no one else's word in any sphere of their lives, except the All-Mighty's since it has already been declared by Him that partial or eclectic acceptance of His word or doctrine is not acceptable to Him. By limiting acceptance and implementation of Allah's directions in only the personal side of their lives, the so-called Muslim populace of this world too has accepted the Dajjal as their 'rub' meaning lord and in so doing are unable to realize its true form, that it is indeed the greatest usurper of all times, that of the very sovereignty of Allah.
