The details about Yajooj & Maajooj
Question: Can you please elaborate why Yajooj and Maajooj were punished?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
Yajooj and Majooj are a human clan that are in large numbers who cause devastation, destruction, corruption and chaos on the earth.
Dhu al-Qarnayn, a righteous ruler had confined them to a region restricting them to a space surrounded with large walls as a barrier.
The Yajooj and Majooj will break the barriers around them prior to the day of judgement. They will kill, cause chaos and usurp some of the major resources of the earth. At that point the Prophet ‘Isa (peace and blessings upon him) will return and will pray to Allah for help against them. Allah Almighty will then destroy them following which, peace will prevail. (Refer to Surah Kahf and Narrations in Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
And Allah knows best.
