Qur'an verses about yajuj and majuj

In this article, we've gathered the Qur'anic verses about Yajuj and Majuj (Gog and Magog). The methodology was to compile all the Qur'an verses that shared the English word's Arabic triliteral root. For example, raḥmatan translates to mercy. But the triliteral root, rā ḥā mīm (ر ح م), leads us to the following variants: bil-marḥamati (بِالْمَرْحَمَةِ) meaning compassion, l-raḥmāni (الرَّحْمَٰنِ) "the Most Gracious," ruḥ'man (رُحْمًا) "(in) affection," but also arḥāmakum (أَرْحَامَكُمْ) "your ties of kinship." By doing things this way, we believe it will provide a better gateway for users to research and self-explore the verses in more detail. The downside is some verses may seem unrelated to the topic or incomplete in message. In this case, the verses should be studied in the context of the entire surah. We've also tried to provide commentary for each verse (if available) to allow users to gain further insight and understand the scholarly interpretation of each ayah. Lastly, we looked online to see if any other verses had been missed using this method of exploring the grammatical root of each word. For example, in the article about animals, you would have to search for elephants, ants, and bees. The grammatical approach wouldn't have delivered the best results. It was a lengthy process, but we wanted to share this with you so you could understand how we produced this list.


قَالُواْ يَٰذَا ٱلۡقَرۡنَيۡنِ إِنَّ يَأۡجُوجَ وَمَأۡجُوجَ مُفۡسِدُونَ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ فَهَلۡ نَجۡعَلُ لَكَ خَرۡجًا عَلَىٰٓ أَن تَجۡعَلَ بَيۡنَنَا وَبَيۡنَهُمۡ سَدّٗا

They said, "O Dhul-Qarnayn, indeed Gog and Magog are [great] corrupters in the land. So may we assign for you an expenditure that you might make between us and them a barrier?"
