Islamic Teaching on the Final Battle Between Christ and the Antichrist

The Dajjal

The DajjalDid you know that Islam has end-time prophecy? Did you know it tells of a figure who will rise to power and attempt to rule the world with the help of another figure, both of whom will be empowered and given authority by an infamous, supernatural being? Did you know these same figures are also mentioned in Christian prophecy? Did you know Islamic end-time prophecy is the exact opposite of Christian end-time prophecy?

Below is an Islamic video on the Muslim teaching of the final showdown between Christ and the Antichrist. Before you watch the video it would be helpful to learn some vocabulary. Islamic end-time prophecy has an Antichrist figure just like Christian end-time prophecy. It calls him the Dajjal. But in Islam, the Antichrist figure, or the Dajjal, will return and fight for Israel against the invading Muslims. Who does the Dajjal sound like to you?


The Dajjal is Islam’s Antichrist figure. According to Islam, the Dajjal will return and claim to be Jesus Christ. He’ll claim to be divine and He’ll fight for Israel. The Dajjal is actually the biblical Jesus Christ who returns as the King of kings. When the video refers to the Dajjal, or the Antichrist, it is really referring to the biblical Jesus Christ.

The Mahdi is Islam’s awaited messiah. Muslims believe he will come to help them defeat the Christians and the Jews at the time of the end. He will attempt to rule the entire world. The Mahdi is the biblical Antichrist.

Isa is Islam’s Jesus figure. Muslims believe Jesus was a great prophet but they do not believe He was the Son of God or Savior of the world. The Muslim Jesus will “return” and deny he ever said he was God. He will join together with the Mahdi. He will teach people about Islam and eventually direct people to worship the Mahdi. He is obviously not the real Jesus. The Muslim Jesus is the biblical False Prophet.

Read through these again if you have to and then watch the video.

Did you notice when it said that Isa, the biblical False Prophet or fake Jesus, will “break the Cross” (@ 10:03)?

It’s also interesting to note that the video refers to Gog and Magog as the people and the areas outside of Islam when in fact, Magog is in Turkey. Has this kind of thinking crept even into the way Christians interpret Bible prophecy? I think so.

The two perspectives

This can be confusing at first, so let’s look at it again. Just remember that Islam teaches the exact opposite of Christianity.

The Islamic perspective: The Dajjal will return and fight for Israel against Islam but he will be defeated by the Mahdi who is Islam’s Messiah figure.

The Christian perspective: Jesus Christ will return and fight for Israel against Islam and he will defeat the Antichrist.

According to the Bible, who is the Dajjal?

According to the Bible, who is the Mahdi?

In Islam, the Mahdi and Isa are in league with Allah.

In Christianity, the Antichrist and the False Prophet are in league with Satan.

Who does that make Allah?

Don’t believe me, Church? Good! Look it up for yourself. Research it. Wrap your mind around it. We all need to wake up and stop looking in Europe for something that is never going to happen because we’re missing a great deal of prophecy right now and we’re much farther along than we think. The conflict has always been between Sarah and Hagar through Isaac and Ishmael and their descendants [Genesis 16]. It’s being played out today in front of us and won’t be resolved until Christ’s return.

Just as the Jews are God’s chosen people, the Middle Eastern gentiles are Satan’s chosen people. Just as Jesus Christ came from the line of Isaac, the Antichrist will come through the line of Ishmael from where Islam came.

The one-eyed Dajjal

Interestingly, the Dajjal, Islam’s Antichrist figure who is the biblical Jesus Christ, is described as having only one eye. This is similar to the description Zechariah gives here to what many believe to be the Antichrist:

The LORD said to me, “Take again for yourself the equipment of a foolish shepherd. “For behold, I am going to raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for the perishing, seek the scattered, heal the broken, or sustain the one standing, but will devour the flesh of the fat sheep and tear off their hoofs. “Woe to the worthless shepherd Who leaves the flock! A sword will be on his arm And on his right eye! His arm will be totally withered And his right eye will be blind.” [Zechariah 11:15-17 NASB]

Personally, I think this could just as easily be describing Isa, or the False Prophet who is the Islamic Jesus. Regardless, this is just one of the many distortions that serves to show that the Qur’an is the corruption of the Bible and that the religion of Islam is the religion of the Antichrist.

  1. I’ve hit my “three-score-and-ten” and never seen the blind right eye of Zechariah 11:15-17 pointed out, as a possible association with Antichrist, the Islamic Mahdi. Noteworthy, Jon. Thanks for giving us something to remember!

    • thank you for this, Jesse. yes, just like the biblical False Prophet [Revelation 13:11-18]. isn’t it amazing to read about the Beast from the Earth in Islamic texts?

  2. Have you looked into the maîtreya lately? I don’t know enough but it seems some in the Islamic world (and a few other religions) think this is their savior and apparently has been appearing here and there but not yet revealing to whole world yet. I saw one video and he looked like a supernatural figure of light – my first thought was – this must be a hologram.interesting info on: under maitreya or mehdi and also
    I saw you mentioned this back in 2012, I hadn’t heard about it until recently.

    • i stopped tracking Creme and Maitreya when i started to see how specific the Bible really was about the geographic location of the Antichrist’s rise to power and how Islam fulfills what the Bible says are the doctrines of the Antichrist. He isn’t from Turkey. Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq have not yet been unified as Daniel 11 says they will be and “Maitreya” is relevant to Buddhism so i don’t see the connection any longer.

      what i do still find interesting is how the New Age religion incorporates UFOs into their beliefs (i believe so-called aliens to be demons and fallen angels) and also how it has the same ambitions to destroy capitalism as the UN and Islam. i attribute this to the Spirit of the Antichrist for sure.

      i watched that video and here’s my assessment: if you were filming the materialization of a supernatural being, would you turn the camera away? i wouldn’t. what’s more interesting in the surrounding crowd than that? i would be blown away and making sure i was filming as much as possible and my film clip would be much longer. i also noticed that the drum the one guy was playing was shining just as much as the person in the video was. why should that be? is it supernatural as well?

      i would say that it was just a person that, for some reason, reflected the light source that’s shining on both he and the drum across from him whether it was due to the angle of the camera, the poor quality of the video equipment or the material he was wearing. i’m also skeptical because no one in the crowd seems to be reacting in the way someone might act in the presence of a supernatural being. no one stopped dancing when he was “materializing”. if he’s the Mahdi, no one is bowing down to him, etc. these are my thoughts.

  3. There is one God (Allah) Who sent down Torah, Bible and Quran. Torah and Bible were not translated correctly Jews and Christians did not follow the religion the way God (Allah) wanted them to follow. That is why God sent down last Prophet Mohamed and lat book (Quran) for them to follow. Same Prophets are mentioned in three books and God in Quran has taken the responsibility to keep Quran intact . Muslims have to accept Jesus Christ as a Prophet and Jews tried to crucify Him but God(Allah) lifted him up and saved him from death and He will come back to establish true religion. Muslims have to believe in Jesus Christ and Virgin Mary otherwise God(Allah) will not accept them as Muslims.

    • I appreciate your reply. If Jesus didn’t die on the cross for the sins of the world, there’s no salvation for you, me or anyone of any religion no matter how hard we believe anything. We’re all in the same boat, brother. We can’t do it ourselves no matter what we’re promised. There’s nothing we can do but accept God’s free gift. That’s how bad off we are.

      For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. // Romans 6:23

      “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. // John 3:16-18

    • There is no such thing as religion. He Mahdi aka Satan in the flesh has fooled everyone to believing he is the Messiah. Yahshua Hamashiash is the true and living God. You will see him descend from the clouds with his angels and bring true peace to the world. His name will be exhalted abpve all names he is the king of kings he is the God of Israel.

  4. Interesting article, never knew about the description of Jesus… Know all about the Dajjal, the so called mahdi and Isa and why the current war in syria and iraq is so important for the islamic expansion… War, hate conflict increases devotion in islam, these areas are key points in the islamic religion with the syrian conflict leading to the rise of the mahdi. But all the same very good, kinda cements suspicions that islam has been designed in two stages meccan and medinan to invade and dominate christian empires to ultimately beat the “roman” empire in which the surah Ar Rum describes. Personally im sorry to say with america drooling to invade iran the islamic empire is ripe to unite as before against a common enemy as was done by the magic of salahuddin when christians failed to distinguish the hard work that was the infiltration of the persions within islam to create the shia sect. ultimately what could have been its demise.. Russia complicating matters atm but probably for the good at no daoubt id rather battle long term a shia islamic movement thats easily modirated via dismissal of hadeeth than a sunni one. Yeah Ex salafi here, born to a western nation taken by them later returned after that. Go figure I watch and cant still wonder at why no one seems to be abe to connect this war has been in motion long before our time. Impressed and to the admins feel free to reach out.
