Will the dajjal emerge from amongst the jews or emerge from the khawarij? How does one reconcile between the following 2 hadith:

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, say, “There will emerge from the east some people from my nation who recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats. Every time a faction of them emerges it will be cut off.” The Prophet repeated this and on the tenth time he said, “Every time a faction of them emerges it will be cut off until the False Messiah emerges from their remnants.”

Source: Musnad Ahmad 27767

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Ahmad Shakir

Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘The Dajjaal will emerge from among the Jews of Isfahaan, and with him will be seventy thousand Jews, wearing crowns.’” (Narrated by Ahmad, no. 12865).


His first emergence will be amongst the Jews in the area of Asfahaan [i.e currently located in Iran]

عن أبي بكر الصديق قال: حدثنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: «إنّ الدّجال يخرج من أرض بالشرق، يقال لها: خراسان

And his second emergence where the Muslims come to know his affair is between Shaam and Iraq as comes in the narration:

إنه خارج خَلّةً بين الشام والعراق
