let us review a few narrations in this regard

first, we find in musnad ahmad



ibn umar says: by god! holy prophet asws never used the word RED for hazrat esa asws; rather he once said that i saw in my dream near kaaba a brownish man with straight hair who had placed his hand on two men; and water droplets were dripping from his head; i asked: who is he? and i came to know that he is hazrat esa asws; then i saw behind him a man with red colour and curly hair; and blind in right eye; who resembled ibn qatan; i asked: who is he? and i came to know that he is dajjal


[musnad ahmad, urdu, vol 3, page 453]

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 242:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said. “While I was sleeping, I saw myself (in a dream) performing Tawaf around the Ka’ba. Behold, I saw a reddish-white man with lank hair, and water was dropping from his head. I asked, “Who is this?’ They replied, ‘The son of Mary.’ Then I turned my face to see another man with a huge body, red complexion and curly hair and blind in one eye. His eye looked like a protruding out grape. They said (to me), He is Ad-Dajjal.” The Prophet added, “The man he resembled most is Ibn Qatan, a man from the tribe of Khuza’a. “

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said, “While I was sleeping, I saw myself performing the Tawaf of the Ka’ba. Behold, there I saw a whitish-red lank-haired man (holding himself) between two men with water dropping from his hair. I asked, ‘Who is this?’ The people replied, ‘He is the son of Mary.’ Then I turned my face to see another man with red complexion, big body, curly hair, and blind in the right eye which looked like a protruding out grape. I asked, ‘Who is he?’ They replied, ‘He is Ad-Dajjal.’ Ibn Qatan resembles him more than anybody else among the people and Ibn Qatan was a man from Bani Al-Mustaliq from Khuza’a.”

I asked, ‘Who is this man?’ Somebody replied, ‘(He is) Messiah, son of Mary.’ Then I saw another man with very curly hair, blind in the right eye which looked like a protruding out grape.
