Did you know that the Messiah Netflix trailer received criticisms upon its release? Prior to the release of this 10-part television series, people already thought that the show was a flop. With all the Islamic references in the trailer, many, especially the Muslim community, have already guessed what the plot twist would be. Twitter user @Sultaan_Mo1 wrote, "I'm getting Dajjal vibes" while quote-tweeting the Messiah trailer. Additionally, the user told in another tweet "I bet he'll 'accidentally' lose an eye." For those who didn't get the reference, Dajjal is a figure in Islamic theology who is known to be blind in one eye. The tweet gained thousands of likes and retweets and seemed to have reached another level. In another tweet, @Sultaan_Mo1 uploaded screenshots showing that Netflix and Messiah's account blocked the user. Netflix denied the claim saying "There's no truth to this story we have not blocked fans."
But who in the world is Dajjal? If you have no time to read the books about Muslim history or install Quran reader apps for Android, then let us help you all. In Arabic, Dajjal translates as "deceiver." But in Islamic eschatology, the word, or name, means more. It is the name of an evil false prophet, Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal. It is said that he will come to the world and pull all people into following Shaytan, or Satan. It is also believed that Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal will be defeated by Imam Mahdi, also known as Christ. According to the Islamic holy book Hadith, Dajjal has curly hair, has one eye, and has the word "kafir" written on his forehead. It is an Arabic word that directly translates as "unbeliever". With all the issues surrounding the Netflix Messiah TV series, will it still be a hit? Find out here as Netflix has got us all covered for the weekend of binge-watching the shows 10 episodes!
