Origin of 'The Eye'

Ad-Dajjal was mentioned in the presence of the Prophet PBUH . The Prophet PBUH said, "Allah is not hidden from you; He is not one-eyed," and pointed with his hand towards his eye, adding, "While Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye and his eye looks like a protruding grape." 
(Bukhari 9.241, Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar r.a)

Ancient Egyptian mythological aspects of the world's creation.
In the beginning, Atum created the world out of Chaos and of himself created the male and female principles, the deities Shu and the Goddess Tefnut. From their union wrer born the deities Geb and Nut, the manifestations of the earth and the firmament. Shu raised his daughter, Nut, from Geb's embrace and she became the vault of the heavens, Nebet Pet, Mistress of the Heavens. Geb remained lying on the earth to make it fruitful. Geb and Nut are the parents of Isis, Osiris, Seth and Nepthys. Together these nine deities from the Heliopolitan Enead. 


To make a very long story short, Osiris was killed by Seth in a battle, and his body was dismembered into 14 parts. Osiris' sister and his wife, Isis, gathered the body parts, except for one part, Osiris male genital which couldn't be found. Isis decided to do a magical ritual to resurrect Osiris. The Egyptian Phallus became the representation of the Osiris male genital. Isis became a hawk and flew over the Phallus, and became impregnated with Osiris's seed in the magical ritual. Isis gave birth to Horus, the 'Widow's Son'. 


Ancient Egyptians believed that the king was manifestation of Horus, while alive. In death, the king was supposed to have donned the role of Osiris. Again to be clear, Horus was considered to be immortal. Ancient Egyptian religion propounded that he lived through the life of every pharaoh, an embodiment of his presence. On the death of a pharaoh, it was believed that Horus simply changed form and became Osiris. In ancient Egypt, kings were believed to be the incarnation of Horus, inheritors of eternal life. 


Horus avenged his father's death (Osiris), and battled his uncle Seth. Horus lost his right eye in the battle. The eye of Horus symbolizes protection. The 'eye' stands for indestructibility that aids rebirth. Most funerary amulets in ancient Egypt were shaped to resemble the Eye of Horus. The symbol is still revered as 'the vessel of wisdom' that increases man's ability to view the world with truthfulness.
