The Sign of the
Day of Judgment! A Fun Fact The Story of Dhu-al-Qarnain By: Dalia Rabbah, Alisha Hendriana, Jenna Lutfi, Abdurrehman Khan, Hadi B., & Ahmad Zahr. The Quran states that Dhu-al-Qarnain traveled towards the west, and arrived in a place where he saw the sun descend in a spring of murky, black water. This place was known as "Al-Maghribi Al-Samsi". At first, he made preparations for an expedition (to the West and marched on) till he reached the limit where the sun set,63 and found it setting in black waters,64 and there he saw a people. We said to him, “O Zul-Qarnain! You have the power to punish them and also the option to treat them generously.”65 He said, “We will punish that one of them who will commit iniquity: then he shall be returned to his Lord and He will inflict on him a grievous torment: And as for the one, who will believe and do righteous deeds, there is a generous recompense and We will prescribe for him easy tasks.”- Alim.com. This passage shows that Dhu al-Qarnain was a fair and respectable leader. He said that the people who worked hard and worshipped Allah would be given easy tasks. Yet, the people who slacked of and disbelieved in Allah would be given difficult tasks. The Wall The king ruled a beautiful kingdom which Yajuj and Majuj liked to steal and destroy. So the king started to make a wall so Yajuj and Majuj could not enter. They made the wall with copper and iron. When Yajuj and Majuj came, they were suprised to see the wall. So they tried to break the wall but each time they made a hole Allah (SWT) made the hole disappearas if the hole was never there. But the kept on trying but Allah would do it over and over again. So Yajuj and Majuj had no hope so they said "Inshallah". Since Allah (SWT) heard them say Inshallah, this time whenever they made a hole Allah (SWT) didn't make the hole disappear. Kingdom of Dhul-Qarnain It all began with the Makkans. They thought if prophet Muhammad didn't know Dhul-Qarnain, they would not beleive in Prophet Muhammad (S). Dhu-al-Qarnain was an honest and noble king that captured many lands. Dhu-al-Qarnain means: the two horned one. He was called that because he wore a helmet that had two horns coming out from the sides. Some people believe Dhu-al-Qarnain was Alexander the great, but people don't know for sure. Introduction Second Direction Dhu-al-Qarnain's Travel in First Direction Who was Dhu-al-Qarnain ? We are going to explain the story of Dhu-al-Qarnain, from Surat-ul-Kahf. Dhu-al-Qarnain was a king that captured many lands. He traveled in three different directions, and established justice within the 3 directions.Some people say he was the king of Yemen, yet it is not certain that he was, due to the fact that he was a king of the past. As you move along the presentation, you will learn the story of Dhu-al-Qarnain. Helmet Of Dhul-Qarnain When Yajuj and Majuj
finish breaking the wall, that's a sign of the Day of Judgment. Sometimes they
are called Yajuj
and Majuj and
sometimes they're
called Gog and
No one knows who
Dhul- Qanrnain was Al-Muhaymin -The Guardian Al- Muhaymin, the Gaurdian relates to this story
because Allah (SWT) was protecting the king's
kingdom. but even though in the end he let Yajuj
and Majuj, he was fair to both of them because
he is still protecting the kingdom because Allah
(SWT) made Yajuj and Majuj did holes slowly Third Direction of Travel Dhu-al-Qarnain reached another destination: a place between two mountains or walls. The people that occupied this territory did not speak nor understand the same language as Dhu-al-Qarnain, yet they managed to tell him about Ya'juj and Ma'juj, and all the trouble they were stirring up. They also told him if he built a strong and sturdy wall to protect them from Ya'juj and Ma'juj, they would pay him money. So Dhu-al-Qarnain got to work and built a highly suppportive and sturdy wall. Certain areas of the wall were re-enforced with strong copper and iron. Ayah in the Quran "As for him who does oppression we shall punish him immedietly..." (18:87) "And as regards him who believes and does good, then for him is a good reward, and we shall speak to him mildly in our command." (18:88). Hadith In the second direction of Dhu-al-Qarnain's many voyages, he traveled towards the east and reached a place at the time of sunrise or sunset. He conquered many places along his path. When him and his army reached the ancient Indian borders, they were too tired to do any more traveling. They all returned to Greece, the place they were originally from. The prophet (S) said “Everyone of you is a caretaker, and every caretaker is responsible for what he is caretaker of.” 5 Lessons Learned Say "INSHA ALLAH" 5 Lessons Learned 1. We learned that we should be fair, like Dhu-al-Qarnain was when he came to his destination in his first direction of travel
2. We should be concerned about the unseen, like how the people were concerned about Ya'juj and Ma'juj. And also because Allah could send us destruction through unseen creation
3.We should be thankful for what we have, because Allah provided him with power, wealth, and a lot of other blessings, and Dhu-al-Qarnain still never bragged about it or kept wanting more things
4.When we become a leader of something, we should be responsible, fair, and kind. Like when Dhu-al-Qarnain came to his destination in his first direction of travel.
5. We should nevr underestimate Alah and his powers, like when the disbelievers of Makkah asked Allah if He knew who were the people of the cave, what is ruh (spirit), and what do you know about Dhu-al-Qarnain.
