What is Real?

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is reported in hadith to have prophesied the emergence of someone he referred to as the “dajjal”.

The meaning of the word ‘dajjal’ comes from the Arabic expression “dajjala al-ba’eer (he smeared the camel)”, referring to a practice where dishonest traders used to cover a sick camel with tar to give the impression it was healthy.

Dajjal is derived from the root ‘dajala’, which means ‘to mix’, it refers to deliberate confusion, vagueness and ambiguity. Hence, dajjal is one who speaks in vagaries, who is full of lies and deceives many people…

Food for thought in our present times? What do you think?
