Netflix just released the trailer of an upcoming American thriller web TV series ‘Messiah’ produced by Michael Petroni. The trailer was released on December 3, 2019, which shows Mehdi Dehbi playing the lead role. In the trailer, he seems to be Hazrat Issa but he is actually shown in the series as ‘Dajjal’ who is trying to trick the people to follow him.
The first season of the series will start streaming on Netflix on January 1, 2020, and will consist of ten episodes. The story will be told from different perspectives. It will be told from the perspective of a young CIA agent, a Latino preacher and his Texan daughter, a Palestinian refugee, an Israeli Shin Bet officer, and the media.
Watch the trailer here:
Hollywood has released many films on ‘Dajjal’ (The Anti-Christ) but in most of the movies, he is not shown as the ‘false Messiah’. However, the trailer of Netflix’s seems to change that. ‘Messiah’ is inspired by the Islamic concept of ‘Al-Masih ad-Dajjal’. Islamic prophecy has stated some of the signs of Dajjal that he will pretend to be someone else, will have only one eye, and will have the word “Kaafir” (disbelievers) written on his forehead, and will be able to make the dead alive. Dajjal will be the largest fitna in history. He is basically a ‘false Messiah’ who will come and represent the calm before Armageddon. It has been told in Islam that he will be followed by 70,000 Jews and Hazrat Isa (AS) will kill Dajjal.
Some other major religions like Christianity also have the concept of ‘Dajjal’. In Christianity, the Anti-Christ is portrayed as the Devil’s spawn, who will bring about the destruction of the world.
The purpose of ‘Dajjal’ will be to start a cult and create a ‘global peace’ by misleading people until Hazrat Isa (AS) arrives and exposes the false Messiah.
The series shows a strange man (Dajjal) who has supernatural powers and is misleading desperate people by telling them that he has come to do God’s work.
#Dajjal is currently trending worldwide on Twitter and it is due to the trailer release of Netflix’s upcoming season ‘Messiah’. The resemblance of Mehdi Dehbi with Dajjal in the trailer is the reason that it has become the top trend on Twitter.
Here’s what people have to say about the trailer:
Since "Dajjal" is trending due to you-know-what, I hope to see many informative, intellectual and of course authentic Islamic threads regarding Dajjal and the End of Times. We are truly in the End of Times.

They will advertise, publicize and normalize the dajjal story so much,
when the real one comes around people will be wearing his merch, singing his songs and goofing around.
Why are secular netwrks suddenly interested in a religious topic? or i’m i just overthinking? https://t.co/sVGx9QshQj

The arrival of the Dajjal is a scary thought. Not because a TV show about him was released – but because Prophets would warn their nation about the Dajjal who will mislead people into apostasy, deceive them by resurrecting the dead, reviving vegetation and bringing down rain.

With Dajjal trending, at least we know the Muslim Ummah is still awake. Everyone’s at least acknowledged a presence. Alhamdulillah. Now just be prepared for the real one please. He’s gonna have one eye that works. And one that looks like a popped grape.
ك ف ر will be on his 4head

Prophet Muhammad prophesied about him, dajjal will call himself Messiah & pretend like he's Jesus. Many Muslims, Jews & Christians will fall under his spell. And in that desperate moment, Prophet Jesus shall come back to earth one last time to earth as commander of Islam/humanity

Some people on Twitter have also started seeking forgiveness from Allah Almighty and are asking Him to save us from the fitnah of ‘Dajjal’.
Ya Allah please save us from the fitnah of dajjal, the evils of yajooj and majooj and all of the other evils on this dunya. Help guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom you have favoured and not of those who have gone astray and nor of those whom anger you Ameen.
