In this article we will explain about Yajooj Majoj. Yajooj Majooj or Yajuj Majuj are creatures created by Allah SWT who will come out at the end of time as a slander for Muslims.
Here we will explain about who Yajooj Majoj is and where is the estimated steel wall that is his hiding place.
Who are Yajooj and Majooj (Gog Magog)
The Yajooj and Majooj are two tribes where they live wildly, and are vicious and do all kinds of inhumane things. The Yajooj and Majooj tribes do various mischief and inhuman things, they become the cause of damage to an area.
This tribe destroys their crops, kills their people, and creates chaos in the area.
King Zulkarnain’s Arrival to Help the People
The history of Yajooj and Majooj took place during the time of a Muslim king named Zulkarnain who at that time ruled most of the world. One time he traveled the world to see how human life in various parts of the world. At that time, the King Zulkarnain passed a mountain and found the people there begging him to get rid of Yajooj and Majooj who made trouble against them.
They begged king Zulkarnain to dispel Yajooj majooj who caused mischief. (Quran 18:94). King Zulkarnain agreed with them and closed the mountain pass with pieces of iron, and yajooj and Majooj were imprisoned there and they couldn’t get out of the gap.
How did the King Zulkarnain imprison and seal the wall where the yajooj and majooj reside?
Yajooj and Majooj Trapped behind a Great Wall
The story of the trapping of Yajooj and Majooj on the wall is mentioned in the Koran surah al-Kahf, which means: “Give me the block from Iron”, when he had filled the gap between the mountain, he said; “blow”, when he made them red like the fire, he said: bring me molten copper to pour over them”. (Quran 18:96)
That’s how Yajooj and Majooj were imprisoned behind a wall, the wall is still there and standing strong to this day. There are many different sources that mention the wall and its location.
Yajooj and Majooj will Break the Wall and Reappear
People from the Yajooj and Majooj tribes dig every day until they will see the sun again. One of them said: “Come back and we will dig it again tomorrow”, then Allah returned it and they were stronger than before. Until the time comes, they will appear again, Allah will send them to fight against humans. (Sunan Ibn Majah 4080)
- It is narrated that Yajooj and Majooj will come out at the time of Prophet Isa As. Al-Quran 18:98.
- Rasulullah SAW said: Allah has made a hole in the wall Yajooj Majooj, Sahih bukhari 3347
- Rasulullah SAW said: The Day of Judgment will not happen until Yajooj and Majoj come out.
The Yajooj and Majooj tribes will come out someday in full force and cause a threat to the world. At that time, the world will experience a brutal period because Yajooj and Majooj (Gog magog) commit brutal murders for no reason.
Prophet Jesus AS. will kill Yajooj Majoj with Allah’s permission
After the arrival of the prophet Isa AS. he prayed to Allah and then Allah sent insects to exterminate the Yajooj Majooj tribe. After that, human life on earth returned to peace and tranquility.
Where is the Yajooj Majoj Wall?
As we mentioned earlier, where Yajooj Majooj was confined within a large wall after King Zulkarnain closed the hole or gap between the mountains. There has been a lot of research being done to find out where Yajooj and Majoj are locked up.
Researchers have determined that there are at least 8 possible locations for yajooj and majooj.
1. Great Wall of China – Yajooj Majooj wall (gog Magog)
In history it is said that when the powerful nations of the world experienced annihilation, China appeared and attacked the whole world and they ate humans.
the great wall of CHina is one of the possible locations for the confinement of Yajooj and Majooj. The Great Wall of China has been around 3460 years after the prophet Adam USA.
The Great Wall of China is in the North and we hear that Islam says that the wall of Yajooj Majooj or Gog Magog is in the east of the world, not the north.
2. North Pole or South Pole
It is said that the wall that encloses Yajooj and Majoj is made of steel. Gog and Magog dug holes every day but to no avail.
It is possible that the walls of Yajooj Majooj (gog Magog) were buried by soil or snow.
Steel is a metal and one of the properties of metals is to experience corrosion which is called oxidation. But until now Gog and Magog have not invaded the world. This means that the fortress of King Zulkarnain that imprisoned them is still very strong and sturdy. It was possible that the fort was in a cold place in the world so it didn’t corrode. This possibility is covered with snow all year round so it does not corrode at all.
3. Below the surface of the earth
It is indeed difficult to draw conclusions about how Yajooj Majooj or Gog is magog. But it is said that they have red hair with small eyes.
Well, this information suggests that they are likely underground. People who are in qua or less exposed to the sun, they are usually redheads. The metal gates of Yajooj and Majooj (gog Magog) are probably the gates leading to the underground cave where they live there.
4. Siberia or Himalayas
Other possible Gog Magog walls are in the Himalayas and Siberia. Until now researchers are still trying to find the place where King Zulkarnain locked Gog Magog. Muslim Scholars argue that the fort is something real, and it exists in Siberia.
Others say that the Yajooj Majoj wall is probably in Himlaya. There are also those who call it in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
5. Caspian Sea
There are also scientists who say that the location of Yajooj Majooj or Gog Magog is in the Caspian Sea. The two mountains that King Zulkarnain had plugged to imprison Gog Magog were the Caucasus Mountains. The Caucasus has two parts, the west and the east and the two are separated by a narrow rift called the Daryal Gorge.
Place these mountains are very wide, from the west starting from the black sea, and in the east to the eastern caspian sea. So, this could be the possible location of Gog Magog.
6. Mongolia and Russia
There are also historians who say that the location of Yajooj and Majooj is between Mongolia and Russia. Or somewhere between Georgia and Turkey.
7. Bukhara and Tirmizi
There are scholars who also say that the walls of Yajooj and Majooj are in central Asia, namely between Bukhara and Tirmizi, the place is called Derbent.
8. Bermuda Triangle
There are also those who argue that Gog Magog is somewhere that can be detected by modern technology, this is the Bermuda Triangle.
The Bottom Line
Even though there are many opinions that mention the hiding location of Yajooj Majoj or Gog Magog. However, it is only limited to the results of research and scientific results. But where the real Gog Mgog lies, this is a mystery and until the apocalypse or until their release.
