Halal Confusion!?!?


As all of us are aware ( I hope so ), there have been a lot of confusion and allegation on certain products and food outlets regarding their halal status for the past years. Once the allegations are out, of course it will take a while for us to believe and consume those products. Some are true and some are just propagation from competitors to promote their products. Here are some of the list.


    Many of us must have gotten really worried when there was news that all the coffee,chocolate and vanilla drinks contain something originated from pork. And the tiramisu and raspberry frap contains alcohol. Although the news was on 2009, it still lingers. But inshaAllah, i really hope JAKIM plays a fair and good role in this. All the premises and menus are on their halal directory, with up-to-date expiration date of the licence. You can check here: JAKIM HALAL DIRECTORY


     It comes in many flavors. Packed in small boxes with 10 sticks in one. But this product does not have any indication that it is halal from their country: Korea or from JAKIM. There was question all around and JAKIM have also replied that the company LOTTE does not have any halal certificate from JAKIM. So how?? A ex-student from Korea and wife to a tv host, Farah Lee, have come with explanation regarding this. They contacted the company and confirmed that all the products are plant based (emulsifier and lecithin). They claim to even have recorded the conversation. So, InsyaAllah, it can be consumed but those who are not certain about it, do not consume (when it comes to syubhah, avoiding it is the best option). This is the link: Lotte Pepero Halal Status . It is just that it will be a lot more clearer and confiding if JAKIM themselves come out with this statement.


    This was really shocking. Who in Malaysia have never consume this??!! And after the allegation, the next day, JAKIM even pull down the halal certificate for hazelnut and almond flavors. It was very worrisome  as we even have gave it as gifts to friends and families. Alhamdulillah, it turns out that all are just allegations. I realize something at that time. Tango product which have the same purple color and almost all the same flavors was making  money at that time because of their Halal status. Wallahualam. To create fitnah is a big sin, bear in mind please. Only Allah knows. So, you can happily consume the Cadbury chocolates now. InshaAllah. JAKIM HALAL DIRECTORY


    This a bit different situation. First it is said to support Israel in the war against Palestin. I do not know anything about this. I simply supported the boycotts of course. If it is true,than the boycott is not a waste after all. But there are people digging evidence that McDonald's is a public listed company,therefore is not against any country or contributing to anyone. It is just that they pay the tax to Israel for the premise in Israel land. Like they do in all the countries they are. Have a look: McD defence .
    But otherwise, it is listed in JAKIM halal directory,but there are only 9 products listed (till Nov 22 2014) but all the premises have the certificate. It is really confusing. Sometimes, we are just so desperate for fast food and does not have any choice. Or there maybe choice, but just not ours. When things like this happen, its frustrating. Follow your iman. If you think it is okay, then go on. If not, don't. But most premises in Malaysia are well aware of halal status regarding their meats mainly. So, if there was something wrong, it will surely show up.

5) KFC

    KFC's issue is that the chicken that was slaughtered was not according to Syariah law. They hang it upside down(which was said to torture the chickens). The one slaughtering, do they say Bismillah? All this we can't see with our eyes. That is why there is Islamic Organization to investigate and make sure all are clear. So, we have to depend on them for now. The directory stated all premises are HALAL..some just did not update or renew their certificate like 6 days..maybe still not updated. So, enjoy the chicken..inshaAllah.

If there are any information out there, please let me know. I'll update.

Dye HALAL?!?

Zaman moden ini, cop 'HALAL' dah tak relevan lagi digunapakai. Semua benda pakat letak cop 'HALAL'. Halal moden sekarang ni maksudnya xda unsur khinzir dan anjing. So,people bila nampak ja cop halal, yakin 100%. Terus serbu kedai makan nak telan bagai atau beli pakai produk yang sememangnya haram diguna.

Sekarang ni tengah hangat di pasaran: Dye rambut yang halal. Apakah kejadahnya??

Halal yang dimaksudkan sebenarnya ialah SUCI. Xda benda najis which is unsur2 khinzir dan anjing. Tapi ini x bermaksud halal dipakai. Yang pi cop halal tu for what reason??

Berhati-hatilah. Banyak sangat cara digunapakai untuk rosakkan akidah umat Islam. Hanya inai sahaja dibenarkan bagi wanita n untuk dihiaskan untuk suami sahaja. Ini sebab inai meresap ke dalam rambut dan tidak menghalang air. Jadi,sah lah mandi wajib dan wudu'.

Biblical Prophecy on the Advent of Muhammad (pbuh)

John 14:15-16 --

" If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father and He shall give you another Comforter that he may abide with you forever. "

    Muslim theologians have said that "another Comforter" is Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah; and him to "abide forever" means the perpetuity of his laws and way of life (Shari'ah) and the Book (Qur'an) which was revealed to him.

John 15:26-27 --

" But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. "

John 16:5-8 --

" But now I go my way to Him that sent me and none of you asketh me 'Whither goest thou?' But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and approve righteousness and judgement. "

John 16:12-14 --

" I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. How be it when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak; and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me; for he shall receive of mine, and he shall shew it unto you. "

John 16:16 --

" A little while and ye shall not see me: and again a little while, ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. "

     Muslim theologians have stated that the person who is described by Jesus to come after him--in the above verses-- does not comply with any other person but Muhammad (pbuh) Messenger of Allah. This 'person' whom Jesus prophesied will come after him is called in the Bible 'Parqaleeta'. This word was deleted by later interpreters and translators and changed at times to 'Spirit of Truth', and at other times, to 'Comforter' and sometimes to 'Holy Spirit'. The original word is Greek and its meaning is 'one whom people praise exceedingly.' The sense of the word is applicable to the word 'Muhammad' (in Arabic).

Biblical Evidence Of Jesus Being A Servant Of God And Having No Share In Divinity


All praise is to the One to Whom all Dignity, Honour and Glory are due; the Unique with perfect attributes, Who begets not, nor He is begotten. He has no equal but He is the Almighty, Omnipotent. He sent His Messengers and Prophets to guide humanity towards monotheism; to worship Him Alone, the only One Worthy of worship, and to warn them of eternal dire consequences of polytheism, associating partners with One Allah and the worship of creatures.

  Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon all the Prophets and Messengers, especially on Muhammad, the last of the Prophets, and on all who follow him in righteousness until the Day of Recompense.

Jesus and Devil In The Bible

  In the New Testament of the Bible, in the fourth chapter of Gospel according to Matthew, the sixth and seventh verses clearly indicate that Jesus in an obedient mortal and God is the Master and Lord according to his saying in the seventh verse:

"It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord, thy God."

  In this chapter we read that the Devil actually carried the Messiah, and took him from place to place. How can the Devil carry God? Glory be to Allah; He is above such blasphemy!

  Then the Devil orders him to prostrate before him and worship him, even tempting him with worldly possessions. How can the Devil even dare such an audacity with God? When the Devil wanted Jesus to comply with his orders, he (Jesus) replied by saying that it was written (in the previous Books):

"Thou shalt worship the Lord, thy God; And Him only shalt thou serve."- Matthew 4:10


  Jesus never called himself Son of God but he used to call himself the 'Son of Man' (Mark 2:10) although he heard himself being called by that name he did not object--as assumed in the Bible-- and did not consider the title exclusively for him.

  According to the Biblical term in the Old and New Testament, every God-fearing righteous person is called 'Son of God'. In Matthew 5:9 we read:

"Blessed are the peace-makers, for they shall be called the children of God."

in Matthew 5:45--
"That ye may be children of your Father which is in heaven..."


In Matthew 5:48--

"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."

In Matthew 6:1--

"... otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven."

Matthew 7:21--

"Not every one that sayeth unto me (Jesus), Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in heaven."

  N.B. The word 'Lord' here was translated as Rabb in the Arabic version of the Bible so that people may be convinced that Jesus is God! But if one studies the rest of the verse, one will note that the verse bears testimony to the subservience (to God's will) of the Messiah (Jesus). Therefore the correct translation should be:

"Not every one that sayeth to me, O my Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

  It is obvious from the above readings from the Bible that the term 'Father' is used for God in numerous places in the Bible. It is never used exclusively for Jesus.

  Matthew 11:25--

"At that time Jesus answered and said, 'I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent and has revealed them unto babes."


  Matthew 14:23--

"And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray..."

  If Jesus is God or a part of God then why did he pray? In fact, prayer is always from a submitting, needy and dependent one for the Mercy of Almighty Allah as mentioned in the Qur'an:

"O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah but Allah is the Rich (Free of all wants and needs), the Worthy of all praise." (V.35:15)

  And in V.19:93 of the Qur'an:-

"There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes to the Most Gracious (Allah) as a slave."


  Matthew 15:22-28--

"And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts and cried unto him, saying, 'Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David: my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.' But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying; 'Send her away, for she crieth after us.' But he answered and said, 'I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.'

Then came she and worshipped him, saying, 'Lord, help me.' But he answered and said, 'It is not meet to take the children's bread and to cast it to dogs.'

And she said, 'Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.'

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, 'O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.'" 

  In this story about a woman from Canaan there are noteworthy points:

1) Lack of mercy ad love charged against Jesus (if the incident is reported correctly).
2) Degraded discrimination in regard to the uplifting of his tribe and not for the others.
3) Tribal pride of descendance and prejudice against others and calling them dogs.
4) An ignorant polytheist woman debated with him and won him over.


  Matthew 19:16-17--

"And behold, one came and said unto him, 'Good master, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?' And he said unto him, 'Why callest thou me good? (There is ) none good but one, (i.e.) God, but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.'"

  The above verses note this acknowledgement of his submissiveness (to Allah's Will).

  Matthew 21:45-46--

"And when the chief priests and pharisees had heard his parable, they perceived that he spoke of them. But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude because they took him for a Prophet."

  Here it is proved that all those who believed in Jesus during his life-time did not believe in him being God or the Son of God or one in the doctrine of Trinity; but they believed in him as being a Prophet only. This is indeed one of the strongest points of evidence against those who believe in the Divinity of Jesus (Incarnation of God) if only they pondered.


  Matthew 23:8--

"But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your master, even Jesus, and all ye are brethren."

  Here it is clearly proved that Jesus was servant of Allah, and that there is only One Master and He is Allah. In the arabic version of the Bible this verse has been translated so that Jesus is meant to be the master whereas the English rendering is nearer the original sense.

  Matthew 23:9--

"And call no man our father upon the earth: for one is your Father which is in heaven."

  From this you will note that fatherhood and sonship is meant to be the relationship between the Lord and His servants: it is meant in a general sense and not specifically for Jesus.

  Matthew 24:36--

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

  This is a definite proof that the Final Hour is unknown to any but Allah,thus Jesus' knowledge is imperfect like all other men; Allah Alone is All-Knowing, Omniscient.

  Matthew 26:39--

"And he (Jesus) went a little farther, and fell on his face and prayed, saying, 'O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.'"

  We note that the person speaking is unaware of Allah's Will and realizes the fact that he is a servant of Allah. He (Allah) Alone can cause the change.


  Matthew 27:7-8--

"And they took counsel and bought with them the potter's field to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called the Field Of Blood,unto this day."

 From these verses we understand that the Bible (the New Testament ) was not written during Jesus' lifetime but long after the occurrence of the events described, having been retained in the memory of the people.

  Matthew 27:46--

 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, 'Eli,Eli, lama sabachthani? (My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?')"

 This is according to their (Christians') assumption that Jesus cried in a loud voice saying the above words while he was being crucified. This is a great insult as such words could only come from unbelievers in Allah. Further, it is incredible that such words should come out from a Prophet of Allah because Allah never breaks His Promise and His Prophets never complained against His Promise.


  In John 17:3--

 "And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou has sent."

  In Mark 12:28-30--

 "And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, 'Which is the first commandment of all?' And Jesus answered him: 'The first of all the commandment is; hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is One Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord, thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.' "

  In Mark 12:32--

 "And the scribe said unto him, 'Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is One God; and there is none other but He.' "

  In Mark 12:34--

 "...he (Jesus) said unto him, 'Thou art not far from the kingdom of God...' "

 In these versus, Jesus (peace be upon him) himself had testified that Allah is the One God, there is none other than Him, and that whoever believes in His Oneness, he is near the Kingdom of Allah. Therefore whoever associates partners with Allah or believes in the Trinity is far away from the Kingdom of Allah , and whoever is far away from the Kingdom of Allah he is the enemy of Allah.

  In Matthew 24:36--

 "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angles of the heaven, but my Father only."

 A similar text was quoted from Matthew which is exactly as proclaimed by the Qur'an in that none knows when the Hour will come except Allah. This establishes the fact that Jesus was subservient to Allah and that he had no share in Divinity: that he was an incarnation of God, was an innovation by the people of Canaan.

  In John 20:16--

 "Jesus said unto her, 'Mary'. She turned herself, and sayeth unto him, 'Rabboni', which is to say, Master, Jesus saith unto her, 'Touch me not: For I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father; and to my God and your God.' Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she has seen the Lord, and that He has spoken these things unto her. "

 In the above narrative Jesus clearly testified that Allah is his God and their God, making no difference between him and them in the worship of the One Allah. Whoever believes that Jesus is God has indeed blasphemed against Allah and betrayed Jesus and all the Prophets and Messengers of Allah.

Information on Malaysia's Halal Food...

Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,

  Although Malaysia is considered an Islamic country,most of the food producing company are managed by non-muslims. Even though they follow the rules and regulations in producing the foods concerning muslim consumers, they have no clear idea on what are haram and what are halal for us. Maybe for them, pork and all that related to it are haram for us muslims. But there are more than pork that  concerns us. For example,the slaughtering of chicken,cow,goat and ext. There are many rules that must be followed so that their meats are halal for us to consume. Concerning this problems,i have done some research on Malaysia's product and some other that are certified halal and insya-Allah this will be true. May Allah be with us.

  To make my research easier, JAKIM itself have website that lists all the products, company, food premise, menu and even slaughter house that is certified HALAL and the expiry dates. Here is the link.

Click the 'pengguna' link and you will be directed to search engine ('mulakan carian') on what product or company that you wish to check. This website is in bahasa malaysia. I really hope that they have one in english version so that muslim foreigners can also have their look here. Insya-Allah. Thanks to Allah they build up this website. It clears off many misunderstandings. Some imported products may be not halal in the foreign country, but when it enters malaysia's manufacturing, our people here have it under observation for HALAL. For example, Pizza Hut. In foreign country, it uses pork and bacon (they are the same anyway) for their menu. But in Malaysia, we use chicken and beef. So,this misunderstandings can be cleared by checking its HALAL certificate.

Alhamdulillah. :)

Ya'juj Ma'juj..

Ya'juj Ma'juj (Gog and Magog)

The emergence of the mighty tribes of Ya'juj and Ma'juj is also a major sign of Qiyamah. 
Allah says in the Qur'an, "When Ya'juj and Ma'juj are let loose (from their Barrier) and they swiftly swarm from every mound"   (Surah Al-Anbiya)
Allah says in the Qur'an, " (Zulqarnain) said, 'This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the promise of my Lord comes, He shall level it down (the barrier) to the ground. And the promise of my Lord is ever true."   (Surah Al-Kahf)
Zainab-b-Zahash says: "Once the Prophet SAW awoke from such a sleep that his face was red and these words were on his tongue, "There is none worthy of worship but Allah. Destruction is upon the Arabs on account of that evil which has come close to them. Today a hole as big as this has opened in the wall of Yajuj and Ma'juj. (The Prophet SAW indicated the size of the hole with his finger and thumb)"   (Bukhari/Muslim)
In the lengthy Hadith of Nawwas-b-Saman it has been mentioned, "And Allah will send Yajuj and Ma'juj and they will come from every lofty place."  (Muslim) 

Ya'juj Ma'juj and Zulqarnain

Many thousands of years ago the barbarous tribes of Yajuj and Ma'juj were imprisoned behind an iron wall built by Zulqarnayn. Referred to in the Qur'an in Surah Al-Kahf. Zulqarnayn was a Muslim Arab (fathul bari) who lived at the time of the Prophet Ibraheem AS and not Alexander the Great as it is commonly known. From amongst one of the four that ruled the entire world (the other three being Prophet Sulayman AS, Nimrod & Buktnasr) he was a pious and just king, provide with all forms of strength through which he was able to carry his conquests and missions.
  Once he carried a mission in three directions, the far west, far east, and then in a northerly direction. Travelling first in the westerly direction, he conquered the lands he passed through establishing the laws of Allah therein until he reached the setting of the sun. There he met people  that didn't believe in Allah. Given a choice of punishing them for their kufr or being lenient by inviting them first to Islam; he chose the latter and addressed them, ''Those evil-doers who do injustice to themselves by rejecting Allah will be punished by death in this world and the hereafter, the fire of hell is their abode. As for those who accept  the invitation and believe in Allah they will be treated leniently and in the hereafter Jannah is their place of rest.''
 After the journey towards the west he made preparation for the journey towards the east. Conquering the lands he passed through, establishing he laws of Allah therein. He continued travelling in the easterly direction until he reached the rising of the sun. In this area of the east he saw a nation receiving the sunshine without any obstruction and they were dealt with like the previous people in the west.
 After the journey to the east he started his northern Journey, he kept on travelling until he reached the midst of two mountains, it was here he came across a tribe who complained to him about the tribes of Ya'juj and Ma'juj. Ya'juj and Ma'juj inhabited the land behind the mountains, plundered them, committed bloodshed, and then ran away. Observing Zulqarnain's power they asked to set a barrier in return for a wage for their protection from the disaster and bloodshed, which they often bore at the hands of Ya'juj Ma'juj. Refusing to accept any wealth he built an iron wall with their help which Ya'juj Ma'juj could not cross or pierce. (Qurtubi/ Ibne-Kathir) 

The wall of Zulqarnain

Many different opinions have been expressed as to the location of the iron wall of Zulqarnain. Having read many books, the best on the subject I came across was Sheikh Hifzur-Rahman's "Stories of the Qur'an" and thus have chosen to share a brief summary of what he has written.
He writes "The Yajuj Ma'juj caused destruction and blood- shed in a vast area, and because of their oppression many barriers and walls were erected in different times and places by different kings. Four being the most famous: 
1) The Great Wall of China which was built by the Chinese King Fagfor 3460 years after Prophet Adam AS was put on the Earth. 
2) The wall in central Asia near Bukhara and Tirmidh in a place called Derbent. 
3) The wall in Dagistan Russia also known as Derbent near the Caspian sea. 
4) The wall which is in the westerly direction to the third in the region of the Caucasus. 
Because these walls were built for one purpose and are all situated in the North, it has always been very difficult to determine exactly the wall built by Zulqarnain."
He further writes, "The biggest out of the four is the great wall of China and nobody is of the opinion that this is the wall built by Zulqarnain as it is in the easterly direction while the Qur'an indicates the wall of Zulqarnain is in the Northerly direction."
Thus leaving walls 2, 3, and 4.
He writes, "Historians like Masoodi, Istakhari and Hamawi are of the opinion that the wall of Zulqamain is wall number 3 or 4. Those that have said it is wall number two have confused the issue due to the location of Derbent which is near Bukhara and also in Degistan.'' 
 He finally writes, ''Out of two, the historians are of the opinion that it is wall 3 or 4, the master of hadith Allama Anwar Shah Kashmiri in his book Aqeeda-tul-Islam holds the opinion that the wall of Zulqarnain is wall number 4, the one in the region of  Caucasus.'  (Stories of the Qu'ran)
After this short summary I find myself inclined to Allama Aloosi's opinion I conclude with his words, ''We do not know the location of this wall and it is very probable that great seas and mountains stand between us and the wall, and between Ya'juj Ma'juj and the rest of the world.'' 

Trying to break free

Abu Huraira (R.A.) narrated that every day Ya'juj Ma'juj try to break free  through the wall of Zulqarnain until they reach the end of it to the extent that they could actually see the light on the other side. They then return home saying, ''We will break through tomorrow. '' However, Allah causes the wall to revert to its original thickness and the next day they start all over again. This process continues each day as long as Allah wills for them to remain imprisoned. When Allah wishes for them to be released, then at the end of that day they will say, ''If Allah wills, we will break through tomorrow.'' The next day they will find the wall as they left it the previous day and after breaking through the rest they will escape.   (Ahmed, Tirmidhi, Ibne Majah)
Note: Some ulama have written that this hadith is weak and has been taken from the Jews as it contradicts with the verse from the Qur'an, ''They are not able to cross it or pierce it.''    ( Surah Al-Kahf)
However, if found that it is a Marfoo hadith, it still does not contradict the Qur'an as the Qur'an is referring to the time Zulqarnain built the wall and secondly the word ''naqb'' means a complete hole through which they are able to break free. 
  The  great master of Hadith Ibne Hajr al-Askalani giving reference of Ibne Hibban and Abd- b-Humaid has mentioned this Hadith and not raised any doubt or indicated that this hadith is not Marfoo but positively mentioned that Ibne Arabi has said three miracles are evident from this Hadith and then mentioned the three miracles:
1) It never occurs to these tribes that they must continue work throughout the night. After all, they are in such large numbers that they can easily delegate the work amongst themselves and work in shifts. However, Allah does not allow this thought to occur to them. 
2) It does not occur to them that they can merely cross the mountain or scale the wall, which they can do through the aid of equipment they possess in large numbers. According to a narration by Wahb-b-Munabbah it is known that these tribes are agriculturists and artisans possessing various types of equipment. 
3) The thought of saying, "Insha-allah (if Allah wills)" never enters their minds and it will only occur to them when Allah wills that they be released.(Fathul-Bari) 


Many myths surround Ya'juj and Ma'juj. One being that the common people believe that Ya'juj and Ma'juj are not human beings but some kind of third being. How interesting it may be to believe that they are a third being, the reality is that they are human beings just like yourself and I, constitute nine-tenths of mankind and are from the progeny of Prophet Nuh AS.
The Holy Prophet SAW said, "Ya'juj and Ma'juj are the children of Prophet Adam AS and not one will die until thousand are born to him.'' (Abdullah-b-Amr/Fathul-Bari).
The Messenger of Allah SWT said, "Allah divided mankind into ten parts. Nine tenths constitute Ya'juj and Ma'juj while the remaining one tenth constitutes the rest of mankind."  (Abdullah-b-Amr/Fathul-Bari).
Hadrat Abu Saeed Khudri narrates that the Messenger of Allah SWT said, "On the Day of Judgement, Allah will tell Adam AS to pick out the Jahanamis from his progeny. Adam AS will ask, "O Allah, who are they?" Allah will say,"999 out of 1000 are Jahanamis while the one is a Jannati." On hearing this the Sahaba over taken by fear asked, "Who will the ONE Jannati be?" The Prophet SAW replied, "Do not grieve the 999 will be Yajuj Ma'juj while you will be the one Jannati."   (Bukhari/Muslim)
A second myth is that people believe that Ya'juj and Ma'juj were created from Adam AS without Eve (Hawa) on the basis of Ka'ab's narration, "They are from the children of Adam. That is Adam AS had a wet dream, the semen intermingled with the earth and they were created from that Earth."   (Fathul-Bari)
It should be noted that this narration is very weak and objectionable as it is proven from many Ahadith that the Prophets of Allah do not have wet dreams because the wet dream is from the devil and the Prophets of Allah are protected from the devil.
Secondly there is a hadith which can be found in Fathul-Bari that clearly states that they are from the progeny of Prophet Nuh AS. The Prophet Nuh AS was definitely from the children of Adam AS and Eve. 

Physical Appearance of Ya'juj and Ma'juj

There are many different narration's regarding their appearance. These different narration's suggest that Yajuj and Ma'juj are of three types. 
1) Some are as tall as the tree Arz - that is 120 ft. 
2) Some are four arm lengths tall and four arm lengths wide. 
3) Some spread one ear to sleep on and cover themselves with the other. Some also state that they are two spans tall and the tallest amongst them are three spans. (Fathul-Bari) 
It should be noted that all the narration's above are weak and should not be taken. The authentic Ahadith like the Hadith of Nawwas-b- Saman in Muslim suggests that they are very strong and powerful people whom nobody has the power to fight. It has also been narrated that they have wide faces, small eyes, grey hair and their faces are like shields covered with skin.(Musnad Ahmad) 

Emergence of Ya'juj Ma'juj before Qiyamah

A short period after killing the Dajjal, Prophet Jesus AS will be informed of the release of Ya'juj and Ma'juj. Obeying Allah's command He AS will take the Muslims to Mount Tur for their protection as nobody will be able to kill the Ya'juj Ma'juj. Ya'juj and Ma'juj will come forth from every lofty place causing destruction and bloodshed wherever they go. Their first batch will come to lake Tiberias and drink all of its water. Their last batch will come to it and say, "There was once water in this lake." 
Marching on, carrying out pillage and murder to their left and right they will come to mount of Khamr (a mountain in Jerusalem) 
and say, "We have killed the inhbitant of the Earth, let us now kill the inhabitants of heaven." Thus they will shoot their arrows towards the sky. Allah will return the arrows covered with blood and these fools will think they have killed those in the heaven. Mean while Prophet Jesus AS and his companions will remain confined until the head of an ox becomes more valuable than 100 gold coins. Prophet Jesus AS and his companions will pray for their destruction. Allah, answering their prayer will send insects upon the necks of Ya'juj Ma'juj and in the morning they will be found dead like one dead man. In the narration of Abu Saeed al- Khudri which can be found in Tadkhira of Imam Qurtubi, it has been mentioned; the believers not being able to hear their noise that morning will say "Will anybody sacrifice his life and see what the situation is." Volunteering, a believer will come down the mountain thinking that he will never return . However to his suprise he will find that they are all dead and he will shout, "Good news! Your  enemy has died," 
Prophet Jesus AS and his companions will come down but will find that the earth is full with their stinking corpses. Yet again Prophet Jesus AS and his companions will turn to Allah and pray. Allah will send birds with necks like the necks of Bactarian camels which will carry the corpses and throw them where Allah wishes. Thereafter, Allah will send rain and the earth will be cleaned.  (Nawwas-b-Samaan/Muslim)
