Hadith on Dajjal: False Messiah will not harm true believers

Al-Mughira ibn Shu’bah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was asked about the False Messiah more than anything else. The Prophet said to me, “O my son, why are you worrying about him? He will not harm you.” I said, “Indeed, the people will think that he has with him flowing rivers and mountains of bread.” The Prophet said, “He is too insignificant to Allah for him to do that.”

Al-Qadi ‘Iyad said, “The meaning is he is too insignificant to Allah to make what Allah creates at his hand a misguidance for believers and doubts in their hearts. Indeed, He only makes it increase the faith of those who believe and an indictment against the unbelievers, hypocrites, and those like them.”

عَنْ الْمُغِيرَةِ بْنِ شُعْبَةَ قَالَ مَا سَأَلَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَحَدٌ عَنْ الدَّجَّالِ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْهُ فَقَالَ لِي أَيْ بُنَيَّ وَمَا يُنْصِبُكَ مِنْهُ إِنَّهُ لَنْ يَضُرَّكَ قَالَ قُلْتُ إِنَّهُمْ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّ مَعَهُ أَنْهَارَ الْمَاءِ وَجِبَالَ الْخُبْزِ قَالَ هُوَ أَهْوَنُ عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنْ ذَلِكَ

قَالَ الْقَاضِي مَعْنَاهُ هُوَ أَهْوَنُ عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنْ أَنْ يَجْعَلَ مَا خَلَقَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى عَلَى يَدِهِ مُضِلًّا لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمُشَكِّكًا لِقُلُوبِهِمْ بَلْ إِنَّمَا جَعَلَهُ لَهُ لِيَزْدَادَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِيمَانًا وَيُثْبِتَ الْحُجَّةَ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ وَالْمُنَافِقِينَ وَنَحْوِهِمْ
