Repeatedly Called Rasulullah SAW
This animal named Dabbah and repeatedly called the Messenger of Allāh sebagai as one of the signs of doomsday. Even Allah SWT in his argument also explained about this animal. This is stated in the Quran Surat An-Naml: 82 which means as follows.”When words fall on them, we remove a dabbah (animal) from the earth that will tell them, that in fact mankind was not sure of our verses.” (An-Naml: 82)
Rasulullah SAW also said about this Dabbah and became one of the reminders of Muslims to always repent. In the Muslim history of the hadith, the Apostle mentions three cases that if all three came out then all repentance and charity are useless. All three are the rising of the sun from the west, the Dajjal and the Dabbah.”There are three cases which, if left out, will no longer be useful in the faith of people who have not previously believed; (HR. Muslim)

Whichever comes first, then the next one will occur in the near future. ” (HR. Muslim)He also said: “Immediately you give (before the arrival) six cases … (he mentioned among them) preaching.” (HR. Muslim).Later after leaving, the Dabbah will speak to humans and preach that humans were not sure of God’s verses. He gives a distinction between believers and infidels.
The sign for a believer is a glowing face, while those who do not, the sign is given in the nose as a sign of kufr.”The earth beast came out so he stamped humans on their faces. Then their number increased so that someone bought a camel he was asked, ‘Who did you buy the camel from?’ He replied, From one of the people who was stamped in the face … ” 322).Later Dabbah will come out of Mecca from the most glorious mosque.

This opinion was attributed to Abdullah bin Amru bin ‘Ash. This opinion is not strong because the characteristics and what is done by the dabbah does not fit into the description of al-Jassasah in the hadith Tamim ad-Dari.
