According to Islamic traditions, the Dabbat is a monstrous serpent. The serpent is destined to arise from the earth on the day of judgement along with the antichrist named Daggiel. The dabbat will accuse mankind of not believing in the great divine revelations and the dabbat will bring the end of the world. The dabbat is seen as many of the apocalyptic creatures that are found in religion and mythology worldwide.
