Abu Hurayrah [RA] narrated that "The Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings be upon him] said: "YaﾒJooj and MaﾒJooj are digging everyday, until they can almost see the rays of the sun. Then the one appointed over them, will say, "Go back, and you can dig again tomorrow". Then Allaah restores it and makes it stronger than it was before. [This will continue] until their time comes and Allaah wills to send them against mankind.
They will dig until they can almost see the rays of the sun, then the one who was appointed over them will say, "Go back, and you can dig again tomorrow insha Allaah- so this time he will say insha Allaah. They will come back the next day and see the hole as they had left it. So they will dig, and will come out to mankind. They will drink up the water, and the people will hide from them in their strongholds. They will shoot their arrows up into the sky, and they will fall back down full of blood. They will say, We have defeated the people of the earth and overwhelmed the people of heaven. Then Allaah will send a worm in their necks, which will kill them. " The Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings be upon him] said: By the one in whose hand is my soul, the beasts of the earth will get fat from their flesh [AI-Hakim]
In another narration, he said: They will overwhelm the earth, and the Muslims will retreat from cities and fortresses, taking their flocks with them. They will drink up the water of the earth, until some of them will pass by a river and drink it up, leaving it dry Then those who will come after them will pass by that river and will say, There was water here once. Then when there is no one except the people in their strongholds and cities, they will say, we have finished with the people of the earth, now there remain the people of the heaven. Then one of them will throw his spear up, and it will come back covered with blood, as a test and trial.
Whilst they are like that, Allaah will send worms in their necks and they will die without a sound. The Muslims will say, Is there not a man who will sacrifice himself, and see what the enemy is doing? So one of them will go out, hoping for reward [from Allaah] and they will think that he is going to die. He will go down and find them all dead, lying on top of one another. He will call out, 0 Muslims, rejoice, for Allaah has sufficed you against your enemy. They will come out from their cities and fortresses, and will bring their flocks out. Their flocks will have no other pasture but their flesh, and they will grow fat on them as if it were the best pasture of vegetation that ever grew. [Silsilat al-Ahadeeth as-Saheehah]
