PERTAINING TO THE CONQUEST OF CONSTANTINOPLE AND THEAPPEARANCE OF THE DAJJAL AND DESCENT OF JESUS SON OF MARY (JESUSCHRIST)
by Imam Muslim, translation by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui , Volume: The Book Pertaining to the Turmoil and Portents of the Last Hour (Kitab Al-Fitan wa Ashrat As-Sa`ah)
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) assaying: The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land atal-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of thepeople of the earth at that time will come from Medina (to counteractthem). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans wouldsay: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisonersfrom amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say:Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethrenthat you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of thearmy would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part ofthe army). which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah'seye, would be killed ani the third who would never be put to trialwould win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as theywould be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves)after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: TheDajjal has taken your place among your family. They would then comeout, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, hewould come out while they would be still preparing themselves forbattle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall comeand then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and wouldlead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would(disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he(Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolvecompletely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would showthem their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ).
