I have read the complete story of how Dajjal would come and rule over the whole world except for mecca and medina

It is also mentioned that these 40 days would be different then other days because the one day would be like one year, next one would be like one month, next one would be like one week and remaining 37 days would be normal days.

As it is mentioned that one day from 40 days would be like one year, does it mean that the whole day from morning to night will complete in one year?

There are different interpretations for that Hadith.

Warning: Below are just Interpretation/personal opinion of the Mulana

The only I really like is by Sheikh Imran N. Hosein

He says that the first three days that are mentioned are metaphorical. He further explains that the first day means the British Rule perhaps starting in 13th century till they lost their power somewhere in the 20th century.

Second day that's equal to one month means the American Rule starting right after the fall of the Great British Empire till they too will fall somewhere soon into the future.

Third day that is equal to a week means the day America falls and a new super power rises, most probably Israel.

After the rise and fall of this new super power, Dajal will appear in physical form and be killed by Prophet Isa peace be upon him.

  • I've heard that several times and I tend to disagree, pax Britannica was about 100 years long (1815-1914), pax Americana is already 70 years (1945-2015). I don't see the month/year relation here. – user549 Nov 23 '15 at 16:12
  • May be he got the timing wrong. But British Empire wasn't just 100 years. If you look at the history, their rule began way before that. Somewhere in the 14th century.. P.S. Its just an opinion based argument. So could be wrong or very wrong. – user14305 Nov 24 '15 at 6:16
  • Sure British rule started way back but the hegemony matured in 19th century. For one, British rule in subcontinent didn't crystallize until late 18th century, so how could they be the "Great Empire?" In fact, the treaty of Westphalia was in 1648 and until then the Europeans were rather fighting internally. European colonialism began after Westfalia. – user549 Nov 24 '15 at 9:08
  • I don't think America really showed its true colors till the fall of Soviet Union. Only after Soviet Union fell did America come out in to the open, somewhere in the early 90s. (1990s) But no point arguing Mulana's interpretation and trying to justify it since the 'Argument' is totally 'opinion-based'. – user14305 Nov 24 '15 at 13:33
  • If you take the days metaphorically then you need to consider taking dajjal appearance metaphorically as well. It doesn't have to be a giant person with one blind eye. Especially if we do some research its clear the Dajjal's donkey is more like modern day inventions such as aeroplance and ships. More discussed in my question here: islam.stackexchange.com/questions/31411/… Please shed some light if you can. – user606669 May 30 '16 at 12:16
