Dajal the name which Mohammed gave to the antichrist or false Christ, whose appearance he regarded as one of the ten signs which should precede the resurrection. The prophet thus describes him: "Verily he is of low stature, although bulky;, and has splay feet, and is blind, with his flesh even on one side of his face. without the mark of an eye, and his other eye is neither full nor sunk into his head. Then, if you should have a doubt about Dajal, know that your cherisher (God) is not blind." He describes him as coming with deceptions, and displaying miraculous power. He succeeds for a certain time, until the advent of Christ shall put an elnd to him and his followers.
