Orya Maqbool Jan on Anti-Christ, Gog and Magog

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri.

Orya Maqbool Jan on Anti-Christ, Gog and Magog

OMJ is retired bureaucrat, columnist and analyst. Frequently he comes on political talk shows on Pakistani TV channels. He is popular in conservative audience of Pakistan. Few days ago he wrote a column in Pakistani daily newspaper, and mentioned Dajjal, Yaajooj-aur-Maajooj (Anti-Christ, Gog and Magog). He presented concept similar to Lahore Ahmadiyya Movment understanding. I sent him following email. I was hoping to receive reply, as I did in reply to my email in 2010. This time I am still waiting. Link to my last email correspondence with him is at the bottom of this post.

Dear Orya Maqbool Jan sahib, Aslam Alikum,

Last we exchanged emails over three years ago. I sent you links, in reply to your question, to beliefs and articles on Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement (Lahori-Ahmadi) official website that considers EVERY RECITER OF KALIMA-SHAHADA AS MUSLIM. I was hoping to hear back from you. I take it you must be very busy.

Today, I want to congratulate you on raising a GREAT POINT in your recent column ‘Andalib Bagh-e-Hajaz’ published in published in newspaper ‘Roznama Dunya’ on November 9, 2013.

In this column you identified Dajjal, Yaajooj and Maajooj (Anti-Christ, Gog and Magog). You identified how interest based modern banking system is NOT letting Muslims live their lives as guided by Holy Quran. It was this fear that Sahaba-Akram were scared, when Rasool Allah Muhammad SAWS mentioned attributes of Dajjal. This Dajjali system has influenced lives of people in Pakistan who are considered Scholars of Islam, and extremely pious people such as Chairman of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, whose salary comes from account on which government of Pakistan pays interest (Riba). No wonder our Master Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH warned us that even Momin will not be spared from the dust of Dajjal. I am glad in your column you have dared to educate Pakistani readers that Dajjal mentioned in Ahadith and Yaajooj-Maajooj mentioned in Holy Quran is not some super natural animal but Caucasian Christian nations of Europe. Interestingly in 2004, in one of the TV program ‘Alif’ Mufti Muneebur Rehman sahib could not identify Dajjal.

My question to you: Do you think time will ever come in Pakistan when you could write in your column that per Hadith of Rasool Allah SAWS, the person who will identify Dajjal first will be Imam Mahdi. And Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib of Qadian, who was only a Mujjaddid (reformer) of 14th Islamic Hijra century, was the first person to identify Dajjal about whom you have written more than 100 years later? Do you also think you will be able to mention book, in your column, by Lahori-Ahmadi elder Maulana Muhammad Ali sahib:Al-Maseeh-ud-Dajjal-o-Yaajooj Maajooj: by Maulana Muhammad Ali.Urdu Translation of 'The Anti-Christ and Gog and Magog'

The Anti-Christ and Gog and Magog: by Maulana Muhammad Ali

Orya sahib, I look forward to your reply. Please do acknowledge when you receive my email.

Thanks, and Allah Hafiz.

    From Rashid Jahangiri:

    Orya Maqbool Jan on United States and Israel.

    I send following email to OMJ sahib on November 27, 2013. I am still waiting for his reply.

    Dear Orya sahib,
    Aslam Alikum
    I am again writing you email within a span of couple of weeks. This time it is on your recent column published in Roznama Dunya on November 27, 2013, under topic ‘Murg-brr-Amreeka; Murg-brr-Israel.’
    In your column you have succinctly made clear that how after standing up to USA and Israel for 35 years, Iran finds it hard to continue. Your article reminded me of Ahadith of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS. I will rephrase in my words. Rasool Allah SAWS said (1) In time of Dajjal, Jews and Christians will be together against Muslims. (2) Imam Mahdi will finish Dajjal.
    In your column ‘Andaleeb-Bagh-e-Hijaz’ published in Roznama Dunya on November 9, 2013. [By the way I sent you an email comment. I asked you a question and was hoping to receive some email from you]. You talked about Dajjal, Yaajooj and Maajooj. Don’t you think Dajjal is bringing powerful Muslim countries to their knees??
    Now the issue is how Muslims can defeat Dajjal? Little hope that Iran gave to Muslims is not there anymore. Reason fails to convince that someday “Khooni Mahdi” (Bloody Mahdi) will arrive who will single handedly kill Dajjal and its followers. On the other hand Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib of Qadian made claim of the awaited Mahdi and told Muslims that only way to defeat Dajjal is to convert it to Islam by taking Islam’s message of peace, reason, love, inspiration, tolerance, logical etc to countries in Europe and North America. So, my question to you: Won’t you recommend to your Pakistani Muslim readers that only way to defeat Dajjal is the way suggested by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib of Qadian??
    Thank you and Wasalam,
