Is Dajjal born or he will be born at the end times? If he is born then where is he living or hiding? When will he emerge? Such questions usually arise in our mind and we usually try to find their answers. A similar question was asked from Darul Iftah of Jamia Binoria.
There is a hadith mentioned in Sahih Muslim which is a narration from companion Tameem Dari about his experience in sea when they entered a remote island and saw a man chained. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) indicated that he was Dajjal.
Mufti said that according to this hadith Dajjal is born and is imprisoned in a remote island. Before the end times he will be freed after which he will emerge and will fight Imam Mehdi and muslims.
Most scholars agree that we should not be concerned about where Dajjal is, rather we should be concerned whether we are capable enough to stand firm against him.
