Sunni Cleric describes Rohollah and Dajjal

Long- suffering prominent sunni cleric Ustad Bediüzzaman Said Nursi r.a (1873- 1960) ( whose life passed in jails and prisons, tortures till his arrival to Allah) described Rohollah(Upon whom be blessings and peace) and Dajjal.
When Jesus(Rohollah) (Upon whom be peace) comes, not everyone will know him to be the true Jesus(Rohollah). His elect and those close to him will recognize him through the light of belief. It will not be self-evident so that everyone will recognize him.

Q u e s t i o n : There are narrations which say: “The Dajjal has a false paradise where he sends those who follow him, and he also has a false hell into which he casts those who  do not follow  him.  He has even made  one of his mount’s ears into a paradise and the other one into a hell; his body is of such-and-such vast dimensions;”[9] they describe him like this?

T h e  A n s w e r : The Dajjal superficially resembles a human being. But he is arrogant and pharaoh-like and has forgotten God, so is a foolish satan and intriguing man who calls his superficial, tyrannical rule godhead. But his atheistic movement, his collective personality, is truly vast. The awesome descriptions of the Dajjal in the narrations allude to that.[10] At one time, the commander-in-chief of the Japanese army was depicted with one foot in the Pacific Ocean and the other ten days’ distance away in Port Arthur. The collective personality of the commander-in-chief’s army was illustrated by depicting him in that way.

The Dajjal’s false paradise consists of the alluring amusements and enticements of civilization.  His mount is means of transport like the railway; at one end of the train is the fire-box which sometimes sprays fire on those who do not follow him. The other of the mount’s ears, that is, the other end of it, has been furnished like Paradise, where  he seats his followers.  Anyway,  the railway,  an important  mount  of sinful, cruel civilization, brings a false paradise for the dissolute and the worldly, while for the people of religion and Islam like the angels of Hell it brings dangers in the hand of civilization, and casts them into captivity and indigence.

For sure, when the true religion of Christianity emerges and is transformed into Islam, it will spread its light to the great majority of people in the world, but when the end of the world approaches,  an atheistic  movement will again appear and become dominant.

According to the rule, “The word is with the majority,” no one will remain on earth who says, “Allah! Allah!;”[11] that is, “Allah! Allah!” will not be uttered by any significant group that holds an important position on the earth. The people of truth will form a minority or will be defeated, but they will remain permanently till the end of the world. Only, the moment Doomsday occurs, as a token of divine mercy, the spirits of the believers will be seized first so that they do not see the terrors of the Last Day, and it will break forth over the unbelievers.[12]
