Someone once asked me “There’s so much information on the Dajjal, I’m sure I’ll be able to spot him and stay away from him, I don’t get why he’s such a great fitnah.”
I told him Alcohol is haraam, yet the ummah consumes it. Zina is haraam, yet the ummah commits it. Riba is haraam, yet the ummah indulges in it. The question is not whether you will be able to recognize him, it is whether you will be able to resist him.
