People who believe the Dajjal's way of life, in secular democracy and other 'cracies' and 'isms' also have trouble accepting the fact that Islam's primary function and scope is in the national life of a people, its secondary reflection and version is the personal life although numerous examples from the Qur'an and the Hadis can be put forward to support this. Before them, I would like present just this one thing. Among the five 'fard' or compulsory responsibilities of a Muslim, four are of collective nature, only one remaining strictly personal. Iman, meaning Tawheed, Salah, Zakah, Hajj are all for collective observance, while only 'saom' or fasting is private. In accepting the five pillars of Islam as issues of personal adherence, these people have accepted the Dajjal in their private and personal lives as well. ;
The Messenger has said, “The Dajjal's power and influence will encompass the world's water and earth. The surface of the world will be covered by it as skin on an animal's back.” -from Masnad-e-Ahmed, Haqeem and Dar-ul-Nushr.
WHAT has the Messenger of Allah tried to relay through this allegory if not the Judeo-Christian civilization? For is not all the world's water and land under the control and influence of this one superpower? Even a short time back, there was dissension between two forces of the Dajjal, but today, there is none, today only the Judeo-Christian technological civilization stands as the supreme power on the face of the world, with none to challenge or stand up to its domination. There is not an inch of land or water on this planet where this power does not have access to, or cannot get its own will imposed upon. The allegory used by the Messenger of Allah best describes this scenario… as complete and uninterrupted as the skin on an animal… what better word to describe the scenario where the entire world is under the grip of the Judeo-Christian civilization.
Throughout the world's history, large land areas have been conquered by mighty military powers, huge empires have been established and ruled by them for generations and numerous dynasties established, like the Roman and Byzantine empires, the Ming dynasty of China and so forth. Before that time period, the huge land area from Afghanistan to East Borneo was ruled by the Indian civilization, named ‘Maha-Bharat’. However, never in time had it so happened that a single super power has controlled the entire earth or that a single theory,secularism has been accepted the world over as a whole as it has been in the case of the Dajjal.
If the Muslim population were not to accept the Dajjal, the Messenger of Allah might have rephrased his statement, perhaps saying that one-fifth of the people would not accept it, or that all except his Ummah would accept the Dajjal. However, he said neither of these, which further proves that the 'Muslim' populace too is the follower of the Dajjal. As I have stated earlier, there is no parallel to the present situation of a single ideological domination of the entire world. Before the technological advancement brought about by the Judeo-Christian civilization, the idea of world domination remained a distant dream due to the time and effort entailed in communication and getting from one place to another. However, with rapid scientific growth, communications has become easy and that in turn facilitated the prospect of complete domination of the world by the Dajjal.
The Messenger has said, “Arabia too will come under the grip of the Dajjal and its influence and control will be effective here as well.” -Bokhari, Muslim.
IN MANY other Hadis the Messenger of Allah has narrated about the Dajjal's grip on the world. In this one, however, specifically mentioned Arabia, the cradle of the last reformed version of the Deen-ul-Islam, too will not remain immune to the influence of the Dajjal. Although the Qur'anic injunctions regarding law and order, trade, penalty and punishment remain in force partially in some parts of the Arabian peninsula today, in all other aspect including the system of government, the economy, the rulers look towards the western powers for direction and guidance and act in accordance with their wishes. They make no mistake in realizing that should they act differently than their foreign masters wish them to, their thrones or their precious emirates would soon be snatched away from them and bestowed upon people more keen to follow them, people of their liking. Since the war in Iraq in 1991 the peninsula of Arabia has been under complete domination of the Christian & Jewish army and they have almost completely turned it into an occupied territory.
The Arab rulers of the peninsula have neither the wish nor the ability to move a finger to cause the displeasure of their foreign masters.
