These people, known in the Bible as Gog and Magog, represented a destructive force which Allah in his Mercy has held in check over the ages since the time of Dhul-Qaranayn: see Sura 18, al Kahf, 92-2. Belief in their re-emergence into the world is an article of faith for the muslims, the Holy Quran warns us:
whoever works any act of righteousness and has faith his endeavour will not be rejected: we shall record it in his favour, but there is a ban on any population which we have destroyed: that they shall not return, until the Gog and Magog are let through the barrier and they swiftly swarm from every hill.
Sura 21, al Anbiya, 94-6 Yusuf Ali translation

Gog and Magog
By Quran Academy June 19th, Yajuj and Majuj are two tribes of people from the land of the Turks. But unlike us I hope , they are monstrous by nature. They like destroying stuff — crops, trees, buildings — and people. They can also drink up a lake. And they are not from people of the future — they are alive and living on the earth right now. Why are they a mystery?
In Ezekiel 38, Gog is an individual and Magog is his land;  in Genesis 10 Magog is a man, but no Gog is mentioned; and centuries later Jewish tradition changed Ezekiel's "Gog from Magog" into "Gog and Magog",  which is the form in which they appear in the Book of Revelation , although there they are peoples rather than individuals. A legend was attached to Gog and Magog by the time of the Roman period , that the Gates of Alexander were erected by Alexander the Great to repel the tribe. Romanized Jewish historian Josephus knew them as the nation descended from Magog the Japhetite , as in Genesis , and explained them to be the Scythians. In the hands of Early Christian writers they became apocalyptic hordes, and throughout the Medieval period variously identified as the Huns , Khazars , Mongols , Turanians or other nomads , or even the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The legend of Gog and Magog and the gates was also interpolated into the Alexander romances. In one version, "Goth and Magoth" are kings of the Unclean Nations, driven beyond a mountain pass by Alexander, and blocked from returning by his new wall.

By Christopher Howse. Sticklers insist that they should be called Magog and Corineus, placing their confidence in the 12th-century account by Geoffrey of Monmouth of the fight between those two heroic figures. But the City of London giants are carefully labelled Gog and Magog. The names are found in the Bible, though it is unforthcoming about their nature. What surprised me was to find Gog and Magog in the Koran. Muslims regard the Koran as the uncreated word of God.
