It is said that in the Holy Quran that Allah has been holding Yajuj along with Majuj behind a wall that was made of copper and iron by Dhoo’lQarnayn.
“How do We Believe in the Last Day”
Gog And Magog Islam – Allah Almighty gives that we (interpretation of meaning): “Then he followed (another) path until at the point that he came the summit of two mountain ranges, he saw in front of (near) the mountains (those two mountain ranges) an entire population that could not even comprehend a single word.
They cried: “O Dhoo’l Qarnayn! Verily! Ma’jooj and Ya’jooj have been committing an awful amount of mischief throughout the country. Do we then have to pay you an honorarium so to build an obstacle in between them and us? Therefore, if you help me to strengthen (of men) I’ll erect between them and you an obstacle.
Bring the chunks (blocks) and iron and after he was able to fill in that gap in between these two mountain-cliffs the man said, ‘Blow! until he had completed the (red like) fire then he asked” Bring me molten iron to pour it over it. They Ma’jooj and Ya’jooj were rendered powerless to move it or break through it.
(Dhoo’l-Qarnayn) stated: “This is a gift from God however, when the promise of my Lord arrives, He will bring it back to the earth. The promise of my Lord is always and ever. On the Day [i.e. the day Ma’jooj and Ya’jooj be released], We will let them rise like waves upon each other, and the trumpet will blow and we will gather the whole group.” [Surah al Kahf 18:92-99[Surah al-Kahf 18:92-99]
Imam Al-Bukhari transmitted in his Sahih the following Hadith A man reported to his prophet (S.A.W.S) that they had seen the Dam that was created by Gog as well as Magog. He then (S.A.W.S) inquired: “How did you find it?” The man replied: “I found it like Al-Burd Al-Muhabbar (striped garments).” The Prophet (S.A.W.S) declared: “You have seen it.”
In Ibn Jarrah’s exegesis of the Qur’an the following was reported in Qatadah in that the person informed that the prophet (S.A.W.S) of his experience that he saw the dam that was created by Gog as well as Magog when he was asked to describe it, he responded it looked like striped clothes that had black and red stripes. the Prophet (S.A.W.S) stated: “You have seen it.”
It is believed The Caliph, Al-Wathiq, sent certain messengers with messages to kings from different countries to encourage them to travel from one place to the next until they arrived at the dam, and then confirmed the truth of it. When they returned to the Caliph and told him about the dam, they explained it to him by saying it had a massive door that had numerous locks.
It was extremely high, and all the remains of its tools and building materials were stored in the tower. There were also security guards monitoring the structure. The position was in the north-east on the planet. They also claimed the land they owned was large and they were farmers as well as hunting and that their population was huge.
A prophecy Hadith is recited through Imam Al- Bukhari and Imam Muslim on the authority of the Mother of the Believers Zainab Bint Jahsh (May Allah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (S.A.W.S) once visited her while in the state anxiety and stated: “None has the right to be worshipped except Allah.
We curse the Arabs from a threat that is near. A gap has been created inside the wall between Gog and Magog as follows:” making a circular shape using his index finger and thumb. Zainab Bint Jahsh declared: “O Allah’s Messenger! Will we be destroyed although there are saints within us?” He said: “Yes and when the evil people will multiply.” And in another recitation, that the prophet (S.A.W.S) declared: “Allah has created a gap into the wall Gog as well as Magog (people) in this manner,and he made by hand (with the assistance with his hands)” (Al-Bukhari as well as Muslim).
This could signal that the gates are opening to chaos and evil, and also it is possible that Gog and Magog entering the world with the permission of Allah All-powerful.
Another Hadith is told by Imam Ahmed in his Musnad that the Prophet (S.A.W.S) stated: “Verily, Gog and Magog digging through the dam on a daily basis, until they could see sun’s beams (through it) and their leader would say “Go back, and you’ll complete the dam on the next day. The following day, they discover the dam as strong as it was before. until the time when their term is over and Allah will make them enemies of mankind
They dig until they can see the sun’s beams (through the dam) as their boss tells them”Go back and you’ll complete it on the next day in the event that Allah wills to!’ The next day, they see it exactly as they gone before, and then they begin digging through it to attack the world. They consume (every one drop of liquid they see). They will turn to strongholds. Then, Gog as well as Magog will shoot their arrows at the sky. If they return to them smeared with blood-like appearance They will declare “We have defeated the inhabitants of earth as well as those in heavens too.
After that, Allah the Almighty will unleash worms on their necks which can kill everyone. The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.S) stated: “By Him in Whose Hands Muhammed’s soul rests! All living creatures on earth will gain weight and be grateful for the consumption of their food as well as (drinking the) blood.” (Also communicated through Imam Ahmed on the authority of Hasan Ibn Musa after Sufyan following Qatadah and by At-Tirmidhi , on his authority as Abu, Awanah after Qatadah.)

The destruction and death of Yajuj and Majuj by Eesa (Jesus)
Gog And Magog Islam – Following the the Prophet Jesus (Eesa) (P.B.U.H) has promised to end the reign of his fellow Dajjal (Anti-Christ), Allah will notify him of the coming of this unbelieving tribe undefeated, and the man will seek refuge on to the Mount of Toor until Allah will wipe them out.
In the book of Al-Nawaas, Sam’aan (may Allah be pleased with him) said that the prophet (peace and the blessings of Allah be on his soul) in explaining the manifestations associated with the Day of judgement said: “… and Allah will send Ma’jooj and Ya’jooj quickly swarming out of every mound.
They will go through by the Lake of Tiberias (in Palestineand consume everything within the lake. Then the last will pass through and be saying, “There used be water here at one time. A prophet Of Allah, Eesaa (Jesus) along with his companions will be imprisoned until the head of a bull is more valuable to their companions than the price of a 100 Dinar to anyone else today.
Eesaa (Jesus) along with his fellow believers will be praying to Allah and Allah will put a form of worm (like one found in noses of sheep and camels) onto the (Ya’jooj and Ma’jooj) necks and then they’ll fall to death all in one go. After that, Eesaa (Jesus) as well as his companions emerge from the spot that they were imprisoned and will discover only a tiny portion of land that isn’t rid of the smell (of the two Ya’joojs) and so Eesaa (Jesus) as well as his friends will beg Allah and Allah will send birds with that of the heads of camels, to take them away and toss them where Allah wishes.” (Reported in Muslim 18/68).
