There are prophecies about the appearance of Antichrist in the Bible. There is also mention of powers in the latter days which are named as Gog and Magog. In the Islamic traditions, there are also detailed prophecies about the Antichrist, named as Dajjal. Holy Qur'an talks about the powers of Yajooj and Majooj which are the Arabic names for Gog and Magog. In the latter days, all these forces are prophesized to be at work. Their influence and power would be unprecedented. All other worldly powers would not be able to defeat them. While Gog and Magog refer to the military powers trying to conquer each other, Antichrist represents forces of ideology against God. Dajjal would be so deceitful that truth and falsehood would be impossible to distinguish.
In this issue, we have presented various aspects of the prophecies about the powers that are around us in our age, the latter days.

"What is needed in attainment of spirituality, closeness to God and acceptance of prayer is to keep an eye on one's own ways and to reform and better them. To self-analyse, to keep an eye on one's worship of God and to ablde by all commandments of God and to correct one's thoughts and Intellect. God states that He Is near and He listens to prays of the supplicant. Thus if one does not feel that God Is near and does not experience acceptance of prayers, then somewhere along the way something is deficient In the human effort. "

Explanations About Dajjal
By Mansura Bashir Minhas
"Killing of the Dajjal alludes to the fact that its influence would continue to wane in the time of Imam Mahdi and it would gradually dissipate. It refers to revolutions and an era where huge powers will lose strength.”
