Benefit: Is the Dajjāl (Anti-Christ) from the Children of Ādam?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
[Q]: Is the Dajjāl (Anti-Christ) from Banī Ādam (Children of Ādam)?


[A]: 146. Shaykh Ibn al-ʿUthaymīn: The Dajjāl is from the children of Ādam. Some of the scholars say that he is Shayṭān, and some say that his father is human and his mother is a jinn. However, these statements are incorrect, for it is apparent that he is from the children of Ādam, and that he needs food and drink, etc. For this reason, ʿĪsá (ʿalayhi al-Salām) will certainly slay him in an ordinary manner as a human being is slain.1

[1] Shaykh ibn al-ʿUthaymīn, Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá wa-al-Rasāʾil, vol.2

وسئل فضيلة الشيخ: هل الدجال من بني ادم؟

فأجاب قائلا: الدجال من بني ادم. وبعض العلماء يقول إنه شيطان. وبعضهم يقول إن أباه إنسي وأمه جنية، وهذه الأقوال ليست صحيحة، فالذي يظهر أن الدجل من بني ادم، وأنه يحتاج إلى الأكل والشرب وغير ذلك، ولهذا يقتله عيسى قتلا عاديا كما يقتل البشر.
