…it has caused fearful and alarming to many as well.

Many are advising to recite Sūrāh Al Kahf to resist the Fitnāh (Temptations) from Dajjal as it is suggested by Hadith.

There have also been the theories of being it probably the initiative to start making the false Messiah a hero/protagonist of the story to already manifest the idea of liking the character, making the way for what is to come.

However, no one knows who Dajjal and when, where is he coming. In the meantime, the best thing the people who believe can do is avoid all the evil temptations because after all, Dajjal will be the king of temptations. And recite Surah Al Kahf as each Friday, as told by the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم has told us in the words:

“From the end of Sura al Kahf.” Tirmidhi related this with the words, “Whoever recites three verses from the beginning of Al Kahf will be protected from the tribulations of the Dajjal.”
