And within no time the hashtag #Dajjal became the number 1 trend on Twitter!
And people had a lot of theories, one of the guys got blocked by Netflix for tweeting out a major plot twist!
I bet he'll 'accidentally' lose an eye 💀

Many were surprised how the series had instilled fear in others:
I mean for God sake people it's just a Netflix series, Your Iman should be stronger than that we just made #Dajjal trending for no reason, just imagine when the real dajjal come what will happen, make your Iman stronger by praying not by trending something that shouldn't be. pic.twitter.com/wTKNL3AAPc

It had many talking about actual Dajjal:
What I'm scared the most is dajjal going to confuse us with so many tricks and whoever have faith, you'll be safe! #Dajjal

My sister had a theory about #Dajjal few years ago. She said mobile phone is Dajjal. It has one eye and everyone is following it. Can say the girl has a strong point.

Never going to look at Netflix the way I used to…
guys what if this is how #dajjal comes for us, via netflix shiittt. i mean the tv is kind of one eye iykwim

Many were alarmed:
We are literally being programmed through a Netflix series. Manipulating our minds for when Dajjal actually arrives, we will accept it as a norm as we would have “seen it before” https://t.co/LpH7iiWOWa

All publicity is good publicity, remember!
Fuck , seriously guys. If you disagree with that Netflix show of #Dajjal dont watch it. Its no use hyping it up, remember, " All publicity is good publicity " You are the consumer , you have the power !

Some were very observant!

Many were confused at others being scared:
Netflix releasing series about #Dajjal
When this is so obvious with the point of Islam that Dajjal will come on predecided time which no one knows except Allah.
And as a Muslim we should stick on our Faith.
Why everyone is getting scared just bcz of series?

People all over getting scared about Netflix releasing a series on #Dajjal, we all should only checkmate our Ibadat and strengthen our Iman. May the Almighty Allah protect us from the Mischief of #Dajjal.

And while many were planning to not watch the series, others were interested to see how it goes:

Not sure if this is sarcasm…
Tech lover #Dajjal is coming your way through Netflix. If you are a Muslim, it is part of your emaan to answer through tech – unsubscribe Netflix, delete the app and shut him inside.

Imagine relying on a Netflix series for Islamic education:
The coming of #Dajjal is one of the greatest Fitnah of all times. Learn and recite the first ten verses of Suratul Kahf. Seek Allah's protection in prayers after Tahiyyah before tasleem everyday. Seek Islamic history of Dajjal and don't just rely on Netflix. May Allah protect us
— Muhammad Abdullahi (@Muhdabdullahi01) December 4, 2019
Some were just not getting the outrage:
Muslim Twitter is really over-reacting about the Messiah series on Netflix. Many movies have already been made on the same topic in the past, but apparently, it wasn't cool to be outraged back then. I can't with the conspiracy theories 😅 #Dajjal #Messiah
