THE DAY OF KHALAS; THE DAY MADINAH MUNAWWARAH IS CLEANSED OF HYPOCRITES

Question

Is there any narration regarding Dajjal camping outside Madinah and pointing towards Masjid of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to his followers and addressing it as the Palace of Ahmad?

Answer

Imams Hakim and Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded the following narration:

Sayyiduna Mihjan ibnul Adra’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once delivered a sermon to the people and said: “The Day of liberation [Kalas], what is the Day of liberation? The Day of liberation, what is the Day of liberation?” [i.e. The day Madinah Munawwarah will become free from hypocrites and open sinners] He said this thrice. It was asked: “And what is the Day of liberation?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: “Dajjal will come and ascend Uhud and look at Madinah. He will say to his companions: “Do you see this white palace? This is the Masjid of Ahmad.” Then he will come to Madinah and find an angel brandishing his sword at every entrance. So he will go to the salt marsh of Jurf and pitch his tent. Then Madinah will be shaken by three tremors and every hypocrite and open sinner, male and female, will escape and go out to him. That will be the Day of liberation.”

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 534, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 338, Hadith: 18975)

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs. ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has also declared the narrators of Musnad Ahmad credible (rijalus sahih).

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 3 pg. 308, Hadith: 5890)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
