yajooj and majooj
In English, Yajooj Majooj is known as Gog and Magog, who are they, and why are they hidden? That’s what we will find out in this article.

Gog and Magog are two huge tribes that caused a lot of destruction to earth until they were prisoned.

When will yajooj majooj come?

Even though they are prisoned, one day they will free themselves near the end times. They will kill many people and cause destruction to the world. One of the things Yajooj Majooj will do is drink the water from the East and all the water from Buhaira Tabria.

They will drink any water and kill any human they come across. Allah says in the Holy Quran:” But when Yajooj and Majooj are let loose and they rush headlong down every hill”. (Quran 21:97)

Where will Yajooj Majooj come from?

So, where are yajooj majooj? Well, the location where Yajooj and Majooj are prisoned is not known, however, some say that they are prisoned in Siberia, and others say they are in the Himalayas. While others say they might be in the northern areas of Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia.

How will yajooj and majooj die?

Allah will send worms called the Naghafan that will kill them all.

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, “Indeed Yajooj and Majooj are every day digging out of the barrier, and when they see the rays of the sun, the one that is over them says, ‘Return, and you shall dig tomorrow.’ When they return to it, it is as solid as it ever was. This will go on until their time arrives and Allah wills to send them to the people. Then they will dig until they see the rays of the sun. The one over them will say, ‘Go, and you will dig tomorrow Insha Allah (if Allah wills).’ This time he Yastathnee (i.e. he says ‘Insha Allah’). Then they will return to it, but this time it will be in the same state as it was when they left it.

They will dig through it, going out to the people. They will make dry (places of) water. The people will fortify themselves in fortresses, and the people of Yajooj and Majooj (Gog and Magog) will shoot their arrows into the sky. Then Allah will send Naghafan (a kind of worm) at the back of their necks and will kill them with the Naghafan (i.e., with those worms).”

Who built the wall of Yajooj Majooj?

Yajooj and Majooj wall was built by Zul Qarnayn. He built it to save the people from the horrible things they did.

What do yajooj majooj look like?

No one really knows how ya jooj ma jooj looks like, all we know about them is that they are two huge tribes that will be free one day and cause a lot of destruction.

Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “You shall fight in the hours to come against a nation wearing shoes made of hair and faces like hammered shields, with red complexion and small eyes.”

Where are Yajooj Majooj now?

Yajooj Wa Majooj is surrounded by a wall that Zul Qarnayn built and no one can see them.

Are yajooj and majooj humans?

Yes, yagog and magog are humans.

How many Yajooj and Majooj are there?

We know that Yagoog and Mjooj are two huge tribes but no one really knows how many of them are there.

Abdullah ibn Amr RA narrates that the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “Yajooj and Majooj are sons of Adam. If they were allowed to come out, they would cause mischief and ruin people’s lives, and not one of them would die before leaving behind one thousand or more of his offspring. Behind them are three nations: Taawul, Taarees and Misk.”

Is yajooj and majooj unseen?

Yes, we can’t see Yajooj and Majooj right now because they are surrounded by a hidden wall, and it is mentioned in the Holy Quran:

ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَ سَبَبًا ٩٢

Then he travelled a ˹third˺ course

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا بَلَغَ بَيْنَ ٱلسَّدَّيْنِ وَجَدَ مِن دُونِهِمَا قَوْمًۭا لَّا يَكَادُونَ يَفْقَهُونَ قَوْلًۭا ٩٣

until he reached ˹a pass˺ between two mountains. He found in front of them a people who could hardly understand ˹his˺ language.

قَالُوا۟ يَـٰذَا ٱلْقَرْنَيْنِ إِنَّ يَأْجُوجَ وَمَأْجُوجَ مُفْسِدُونَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَهَلْ نَجْعَلُ لَكَ خَرْجًا عَلَىٰٓ أَن تَجْعَلَ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَهُمْ سَدًّۭا ٩٤

They pleaded, “O Ⱬul-Qarnain! Surely Gog and Magog are spreading corruption throughout the land. Should we pay you tribute, provided that you build a wall between us and them?”

قَالَ مَا مَكَّنِّى فِيهِ رَبِّى خَيْرٌۭ فَأَعِينُونِى بِقُوَّةٍ أَجْعَلْ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَهُمْ رَدْمًا ٩٥

He responded, “What my Lord has provided for me is far better. But assist me with resources, and I will build a barrier between you and them.

ءَاتُونِى زُبَرَ ٱلْحَدِيدِ ۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا سَاوَىٰ بَيْنَ ٱلصَّدَفَيْنِ قَالَ ٱنفُخُوا۟ ۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَعَلَهُۥ نَارًۭا قَالَ ءَاتُونِىٓ أُفْرِغْ عَلَيْهِ قِطْرًۭا ٩٦

Bring me blocks of iron!” Then, when he had filled up ˹the gap˺ between the two mountains, he ordered, “Blow!” When the iron became red hot, he said, “Bring me molten copper to pour over it.”

فَمَا ٱسْطَـٰعُوٓا۟ أَن يَظْهَرُوهُ وَمَا ٱسْتَطَـٰعُوا۟ لَهُۥ نَقْبًۭا ٩٧

And so the enemies could neither scale nor tunnel through it.

Yajooj majooj hadith

Abdullah ibn Amr narrates that the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “Yajooj and Majooj are sons of Adam. If they were allowed to come out, they would cause mischief and ruin people’s lives, and not one of them would die before leaving behind one thousand or more of his offspring. Behind them are three nations: Taawul, Taarees and Misk.”

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) said:

“The Hour will not begin until you fight people with small eyes and wide faces, as if their eyes are the pupils of locusts and as if their faces are hammered shields. They will be wearing shoes of hair, using leather shields, and tying their horses to date-palm trees.”

Yajooj majooj in quran.

Here’s the story of Yajooj and majooj from the Holy Quran:

ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَ سَبَبًا ٩٢

Then he travelled a ˹third˺ course

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا بَلَغَ بَيْنَ ٱلسَّدَّيْنِ وَجَدَ مِن دُونِهِمَا قَوْمًۭا لَّا يَكَادُونَ يَفْقَهُونَ قَوْلًۭا ٩٣

until he reached ˹a pass˺ between two mountains. He found in front of them a people who could hardly understand ˹his˺ language.

قَالُوا۟ يَـٰذَا ٱلْقَرْنَيْنِ إِنَّ يَأْجُوجَ وَمَأْجُوجَ مُفْسِدُونَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَهَلْ نَجْعَلُ لَكَ خَرْجًا عَلَىٰٓ أَن تَجْعَلَ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَهُمْ سَدًّۭا ٩٤

They pleaded, “O Ⱬul-Qarnain! Surely Gog and Magog are spreading corruption throughout the land. Should we pay you tribute, provided that you build a wall between us and them?”

قَالَ مَا مَكَّنِّى فِيهِ رَبِّى خَيْرٌۭ فَأَعِينُونِى بِقُوَّةٍ أَجْعَلْ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَهُمْ رَدْمًا ٩٥

He responded, “What my Lord has provided for me is far better. But assist me with resources, and I will build a barrier between you and them.

ءَاتُونِى زُبَرَ ٱلْحَدِيدِ ۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا سَاوَىٰ بَيْنَ ٱلصَّدَفَيْنِ قَالَ ٱنفُخُوا۟ ۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَعَلَهُۥ نَارًۭا قَالَ ءَاتُونِىٓ أُفْرِغْ عَلَيْهِ قِطْرًۭا ٩٦

Bring me blocks of iron!” Then, when he had filled up ˹the gap˺ between the two mountains, he ordered, “Blow!” When the iron became red hot, he said, “Bring me molten copper to pour over it.”

فَمَا ٱسْطَـٰعُوٓا۟ أَن يَظْهَرُوهُ وَمَا ٱسْتَطَـٰعُوا۟ لَهُۥ نَقْبًۭا ٩٧

And so, the enemies could neither scale nor tunnel through it.

Allah also said in the Quran:

“Until, when Ya’jooj and Majuj (Gag and Magog) are let loose (from their barrier), and they swoop down from every mound. And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly stare in horror “.

Yajooj majooj story

Yajooj and Majooj are two huge tribes that caused a lot of destruction to earth they killed many humans, adults, and children. They also destroyed the crops and killed the animals. It is said that they come from the north from the rift of a mountain.

When the people found King Zulqarnain, they asked for his help and he agreed and decided to prison Yajooj and Majooj behind a wall that they can’t destroy. Here is the story as mentioned in surah Al-Kahf:

“Until, when he reached between two mountains, he found, before (near) them, a people who scarcely understood a word.

They said, ‘O Dhu’l-Qarnayn! Verily! Yajuj and Majuj are doing great mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute in order that you might erect a barrier between us and them?’

He said: ‘That (wealth, authority, and power) in which my Lord has established me is better (than your tribute). So help me with strength (of men), I will erect between you and them a barrier.

Give me pieces (blocks) of iron,’ then, when he had filled up the gap between the two mountain cliffs, he said, ‘Blow,’ till when he had made it (red as) fire, he said, ‘Bring me molten copper to pour over it.’

So they [Yajuj and Majuj ] were made powerless to scale it or dig through it.

(Dhu’l-Qarnayn) said: ‘This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the Promise of my Lord comes, He shall level it down to the ground. And the Promise of my Lord is ever true.’” [al-Kahf 18:93-98]

Even though they are prisoned, one day they will free themselves and cause destruction to earth once again. And that day is when the end of times is near.
