Another of his attributes was mentioned in the hadeeth of Faatimah bint Qays (رضي الله عنها), in the story of al-Jassaasah, in which Tameem al-Daari (رضي الله عنه) said:
“So we rushed to the monastery, where we saw the most enormous man we had ever seen, fettered with the most chains we had ever seen.”
(Muslim, no. 5235)
The Dajjaal will not have any children, as stated in the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (رضي الله عنه), who described what happened between him and Ibn Sayyaad, who said to him: “Did you not hear the Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ) say that he will have no children? Abu Sa’eed said, ‘I said, ‘Yes…’
(Muslim, no. 5209).
From the reports quoted above, we may note that some of them describe his right eye as being blind or defective, and some describe his left eye as being blind or defective. Both accounts are saheeh. Some of the scholars sought to reconcile these reports. Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad (رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ) said:
“Both eyes of the Dajjaal will be defective, because all the reports are saheeh. His right eye will be the one that is abraded (mamsooh) and dull, unable to see, as stated in the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه). And his left eye will be the one that is covered with a thick fold of skin, and will also be defective.”
So he will have a defect in both his right eye and his left eye; each of them will be blind, i.e., defective, because the Arabic word used in the hadeeth, a’war, is used to describe anything that is defective and is especially used to describe the eyes of they are impaired. One eye will be non-functional and the other will be defective.”
Al-Nawawi (رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ) agreed with this reconciliation suggested by al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad, and al-Qurtubi (رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ) also approved of it.
