The Dajjaal will only appear to the living

Reference: Fataawa al-Lajnah ad-Daa.imah lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa. – Volume 3, Page 148, Question No.9 of Fatwa No.8097

Question: Will the Dajjaal appear to all of creation, meaning: will the dead be resurrected a second time, or will his appearance be to the living when he appears?

Response: He shall appear specifically to the living. As for the dead, then they will not be resurrected until after the (Last) Hour, as Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says:

{After that, surely, you will die. Then [again], surely, you will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection}, [Soorah al-Mu.minoon, Aayah 15-16]

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
