  3. Salamu Alaikum brothers and Sisters, Ever since I saw a small clip in a video on youtube of Ayatollah Sayed Muhammad Sadiq Sadr speaking about how America (or the Zionists) is looking for Imam Mahdi (ajtfs), I've wanted to find the whole khutba. I've recently come across 45 Friday Khutbas on youtube. The audio isn't that great but someone put together and translated 45 and and some are dubbed in English. I'm going to watch each one until I find that whole khutba on Imam Mahdi (ajtfs). Except for this video, he wears his coffin in all khutbas because he knew Saddam lanatullah alayhi was going to kill him soon. In Sermon 4 and 5 he talks about Byzantium or Rome being part of the killers of Imam Hussain alayhi salam and taking part in distorting Islam. I love hearing all marji's from the past and present speak. I thought I'd share this if anyone was interested in seeing all his Friday Sermons. Also, if anyone knows of some new good speakers online this Ramadan please let me know. Brahim

  5. Salaam Alaikum brothers and sisters! "But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty-- a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates." Jeremiah 46:10 Thoughts on this verse? Do you guys think it is in reference to Imam Mahdi (as).
  6. Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah. Recently, a profile which I am sure everyone is aware of, that was defending YH and HA presented me with a set of Hadith against revolution before the Qaim: Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 310, Hadeeth number 483: Omar ibn Handhala says, al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam said, “There are five signs before the rise of the Hujja ‘alaihissalam, the heavenly call, Sufyani, the sinking of the earth, the murder of the pure soul and Yamani. I asked, may I be your ransom, If anyone from your House should make an uprise (khuruj: uprise or revolt to topple the government), should we make an uprise along with him? He said, No. If you are a Shi’a, then remember, it is prohibited until you hear the Saiha and that Yamani has appeared, to make an uprise. That is unless the MI6 and CIA had paid Omar ibn Handhala to narrate this hadeeth. Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 264 Hadeeth number: 382 Our master Syed al-Sajjideen ‘alaihissalam said, “By Allah, no one makes an uprise from us before the Rise of the Awaited One, salamullahi ‘alaih, except that he will be like a nestling (baby bird), who flew off his nest before its wings grew, and kids pick him and play with him. Ibid # 383: Says al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, “O’ Sadir, stay at your home and be a rug of your house (as motionless and passive as a rug of your house). Don’t move and remain absolutely silent so long the earth and the sky are silent (sinking of the earth has not occurred and the heavenly call/saiha has not been heard). When you hear that Sufyani has risen, come to us, even if you have to walk. Al-Kafi vol 5, pg 22 Hadeeth Number 2: Says the Imam ‘alaihissalam, “Make pilgrimage to this House [the Ka’ba]. Does not each one of you like to be [safe] at his house, have his family prosper through his generosity, and wait for OUR RULE. If he should live to see Our Rule, he will be like the ones who were with the Rasool of Allah salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wassalam at the battle of Badr. If he should die, while waiting for Our Rule, he will be like the close companions of the Awaited One ‘alaihissalam who will be with him at his tent”… Al-ibid pg 23, Hadeeth number 3: Bashir al-Dahhan: I said to al-Imam as-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, I saw you in my dream and I said to you in my dream, Fighting under the banner of someone other than the Infallible Imam, appointed by Allah, is haram like eating rotten dead animal, drinking blood, and pork. And you said in my dream, “It is indeed so”. Al-Imam al-Sadiq alaihissalam replied [in wakefulness], “It is indeed so, it is indeed so”. I can myself comment that some Hadith before Imam al-Sadiq about the Qaim refer to Imam al-Sadiq themselve as Shaykh Hamza Sodagar pointed out. As for the rest of the Hadith's I contacted the office of Grand Ayatullah Nasr Makarem Shirazi (H) on the issue and received the following answer: Answer: We also believe that any uprising in the name of Imam Mahdi before His reappearance is condemned to failure and belongs to the Tyrant. But if an uprising is for the sake of Allah and in order to pave the ground for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS) and to implement the goals of Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS), then it is approved and is consistent with jurisprudential certainties and the rulings of Enjoining good and forbidding wrong. According to the certain documents "Islam without government," is a disfigured Islam which is free of content, and in fact is an Islam without Islam. Again, a group resist opposing the issue of Islamic government. The source of this opposition is, in fact, two things including mental aspect, and the aspect of narrations. The mental aspect is that, they have a bitter memory of the governments and they believe that in the current situation no one is able to form a divine government and implement Islamic justice. But in terms of narrative, they follow some narrations in this field which are not restricted to what you mentioned. The concept of narrations is that "every flag, which is set up as a government before the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS), is either a flag of delusions or condemned to failure." Pay attention to the interpretations of these traditions and they are as follows: 1. It means the uprisings which are carried out without the permission of infallible Imams (AS) or religious authorities or the general deputies of the Imams at the time of occultation. 2. It means the uprisings which are carried out to invite oneself and not to invite to the goals of the infallible Imams (peace be upon them), as mentioned in many narrations. The uprisings meant here is restricted to the ones that there was no preparation for such uprisings. So, the Imams (AS) talked in this way to prevent these premature or immature uprisings. Wishing you all the success Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi’s Office / Istifta’at section Allahuma Sali Ala Muhammad Wa Alee Muhammad.
  7. AOA, I have heard from XYZ that a mujtahid has direct or indirect connection with Imam Mehdi (A.S)? (They can ask a question or a masla or consult from them) Is this true??
  8. Assalamu Alaykum brothers and Sisters These are number of Imam Mahdi singed letters that he sent to his ambassadors. Brother Qa'im translated them and allowed me to post them here, may Allah reward him greatly. ـ حدثنا المظفر بن جعفر بن المظفر العلوي رضي الله عنه قال : حدثني جعفر ابن محمد بن مسعود وحيدر بن محمد بن السمرقندي قالا : حدثنا أبو النضر محمد بن مسعود قال : حدثا آدم بن محمد البلخي قال : حدثنا علي بن الحسن الدقاق ، وإبراهيم ابن محمد قالا : سمعنا علي بن عاصم الكوفي يقول : خرج في توقيعات صاحب الزمان : « ملعون ملعون من سماني في محفل من الناس » ( 4 ) . 1 – al Muzhaffar b. Ja`far b. al Muzhaffar al `Alawiرضي الله عنه (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated to us: Ja`far b. Muhammad b. Mas`ud and Haidar b. Muhammad b. al Samarqandi narrated to me. They said: Abu ‘l Nadr Muhammad b. Mas`ud narrated to us. He said: Adam b. Muhammad al Balkhi narrated to us. He said: `Ali b. al Hasan al Daqqaq and Ibrahim b. Muhammad narrated to us. They said: We heard `Ali b. `Aasim al Kufi say: It was elucidated in the tauqee`aat (epistles) of Sahib al Zaman: Cursed, cursed is the one who names me in a gathering of people!* 2 ـ حدثنا أبي ؛ ومحمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنهما قالا : حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري قال : حدثني محمد بن صالح الهمداني قال : كتبت إلى صاحب الزمان عليه السلام : إن أهل بيتي يؤذونني ويقرعونني ( 1 ) بالحديث الذي روي عن أبائك عليهم السلام أنهم قالوا : قوامنا وخدامنا شرار خلق الله ، فكتب عليه السلام : « ويحكم أما تقرؤون ما قال عزوجل : « وجعلنا بينهم وبين القرى التي باركنا فيها قرى ظاهرة » ( 2 ) ونحن والله القرى التي بارك الله فيها وأنتم القرى الظاهرة » . قال عبد الله بن جعفر : وحدثنا بهذا الحديث علي بن محمد الكليني ، عن محمد ابن صالح ، عن صاحب الزمان عليه السلام . 2 – My father and Muhammad b. al Hasan b. Ahmad b. al Walid رضي الله عنهما (may Allah be pleased with them) narrated to us. They said: `Abdullah b. Ja`far al Himyari narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. Salih al Hamadani narrated to me. He said: I wrote to Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام: My household causes me trouble and rebuke me (scold me (correction) and in other versions: يفزعونني – scare me) with the hadith narrated from your fathers عليهم السلام that they said: Our caretakers and our servants are the worst of Allah’s creation. So he عليه السلام wrote: And He commands that you should recite what He, عزوجل says: 'And We made between them and the towns which We had blessed manifest (prominent) towns’ [surat al Saba’:18]. And by Allah! We are the towns Allah has blessed therein and you are the manifest (prominent) towns. `Abdullah b. Ja`far said: And this hadith was narrated to us by `Ali b. Muhammad al Kulayni from Muhammad b. Salih from Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام. 3 ـ حدثنا محمد بن إبراهيم بن إسحاق الطالقاني رضي الله عنه قال : سمعت أبا علي محمد بن همام يقول : سمعت محمد بن عثمان العمري قدس الله روحه يقول : خرج توقيع بخط أعرفه « من سماني في مجمع من الناس باسمي فعليه لعنة الله » قال أبو علي محمد بن همام : وكتبت أسأله عن الفرج متى يكون ؟ فخرج إلي « كذب الوقاتون » . 3 – Muhammad b. Ibrahim b. Ishaq al Taliqani رضي الله عنه narrated to us. He said: I heard Abu `Ali Muhammad b. Hammam say: I heard Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri (may Allah sanctify his spirit) say: A tauqee` in a handwriting which I recognised emerged: Whoever names me in a gathering of people by my name, then upon him is the curse of Allah. Abu `Ali Muhammad b. Hammam said: And I wrote asking him about the relief (reappearance) – when is it? So it was elucidated for me: Those who appoint a time (i.e. for the reappearance) have lied. حدثنا محمد بن محمد بن عصام الكليني رضي الله عنه قال : حدثنا محمد بن يعقوب الكليني ، عن إسحاق بن يعقوب ( 3 ) قال : سألت محمد بن عثمان العمري رضي الله عنه أن يوصل لي كتابا قد سألت فيه عن مسائل أشكلت علي فورد [ ت في ] التوقيع بخط مولانا صاحب الزمان عليه السلام : أما سألت عنه أرشدك الله وثبتك من أمر المنكرين لي من أهل بيتنا وبني عمنا ، فاعلم أنه ليس بين الله عزوجل وبين أحد قرابة ، ومن أنكرني فليس مني وسبيله سبيل ابن نوح عليه السلام . أما سبيل عمي جعفر وولده فسبيل إخوة يوسف عليه السلام . أما الفقاع فشربه حرام ، ولا بأس بالشلماب ( 1 ) ، وأما أموالكم فلا نقبلها إلا لتطهروا ، فمن شاء فليصل ومن شاء فليقطع فما آتاني الله خير مما آتاكم . وأما ظهور الفرج فإنه إلى الله تعالى ذكره ، وكذب الوقاتون . وأما قول من زعم أن الحسين عليه السلام لم يقتل فكفر وتكذيب وضلال . وأما الحوادث الواقعة فارجعوا فيها إلى رواة حديثنا ( 2 ) فانهم حجتي عليكم وأنا حجة الله عليهم . وأما محمد بن عثمان العمري ـ رضي الله عنه وعن أبيه من قبل ـ فإنه ثقتي وكتابه كتابي . وأما محمد بن علي بن مهزيار الاهوازي فسيصلح الله له قلبه ويزيل عنه شكه . وأما ما وصلتنا به فلا قبول عندنا إلا لما طاب وطهر ، وثمن المغنية حرام ( 4 ) . وأما محمد بن شاذان بن نعيم فهو رجل من شيعتنا أهل البيت . وأما أبو الخطاب محمد بن أبي زينب الاجدع فملعون وأصحابه ملعونون فلا تجالس أهل مقالتهم فإني منهم بريء وآبائي عليهم السلام منهم براء . وأما المتلبسون بأموالنا فمن استحل منها شيئا فأكله فأنما يأكل النيران . وأما الخمس فقد ابيح لشيعتنا وجعلوا منه في حل إلى وقت ظهور أمرنا لتطيب ولادتهم ولا تخبث . وأما ندامة قوم قد شكوا في دين الله عزوجل على ما وصلونا به فقد أقلنا من استقال ، ولا حاجة في صلة الشاكين . وأما علة ما وقع من الغيبة فإن الله عزوجل يقول : « يا أيها الذين آمنوا لا تسئلوا عن أشياء إن تبد لكم تسؤكم » ( 2 ) إنه لم يكن لاحد من آبائي عليهم السلام إلا وقد وقعت في عنقه بيعة لطاغية زمانه ، وإني أخرج حين أخرج ، ولا بيعة لاحد من الطواغيت في عنقي . وأما وجه الانتفاع بي في غيبتي فكالانتفاع بالشمس إذا غيبتها عن الابصار السحاب ، وإني لامان لاهل الارض كما أن النجوم أمان لاهل السماء ، فأغلقوا باب السؤال عما لا يعنيكم ، ولا تتكلفوا علم ما قد كفيتم ، وأكثروا الدعاء بتعجيل الفرج ، فإن ذلك فرجكم والسلام عليك يا إسحاق بن يعقوب وعلى بن اتبع الهدى . 4 – Muhammad b. Muhammad b. `Isaam al Kulayni رضي الله عنه narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. Ya`qub al Kulayni narrated to us from Ishaq b. Ya`qub al Kulayni from Ishaq b. Ya`qub (his status is unknown; I have neither found him in the rijal nor in the books except for having come across him in this chapter), who said: I asked Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri رضي الله عنه that a letter be delivered to me wherein I could ask regarding the problems that I find difficult. So a tauqee` in the handwriting of our master, Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام, appeared: As to what you have asked of him, may Allah guide you aright and make you steadfast against the affair (order?) of those who deny me from our household and the children of our uncle. Then know that there is no relationship between Allah عزوجل and anyone. And whoever denies me, he is not from me and his course is the course of the son of Nuh عليه السلام. As to the course of my uncle, Ja`far and his son, then it is that of the brothers of Yusuf عليه السلام. As to the fuqaa` (barley water used as medication), its drinking is haram (forbidden) but there is no harm in the shallmaab (turnip water/syrup)*. And as to your wealth, we do not accept it save that you may be purified. So whoever wishes, he should send (it to us) and whoever wishes, may sever (it from us). And whatever Allah gives me is better than what He gives you. *Drink made from darnel and it is ryegrass which (grows) on the land. Abu Hanifah said: Darnel is a humble, elongated, red-coloured grain, that stands erect appearing in constitution like the liquorice of wheat and it is not intoxicating but it passes through the food violently (i.e. it’s a purgative). And he said: The plant of darnel is often on the surface and it spreads out on the ground and its leaf is like the leaf of the Khilaf al Balkhi, excessively green and glossy (moist). He said: The people eat its leaves when they are fresh and it is delectable; there is no bitterness in it and its seed is much more bitter than aloe (the crown). And our teacher, al Sha`rani, in the margin of al Wasa’il, volume 17, page 291, said: Verily the drink of shalmaab is made from darnel and it is a grain resembling barley and it has anaesthetic/narcotic properties similar to henbane (a narcotic/sedative) and coincidentally, it (also) happens to be in wheat (i.e. grows amid the wheat crop as a weed) and bread prepared from it leaves one dazed and dizzy and sleepy. And most of its vegetation is in the arable land of wheat and he suspects we have made it haram due to its narcotic properties and the resemblance/confusion of narcotics with intoxicants among the populace. And as to the appearance of relief, then its mention (knowledge) is only with Allah, the Exalted, and those who fix a time (for it) have lied. And as to the saying of one who claims that Husain عليه السلام was not murdered, then he has disbelieved and it is denial and deviation. And as to the newly-occuring events, then turn, in such times, to the narrators of our traditions*, for they are my proof over you and I am the proof of Allah over them. *It is said: The newly-occuring events are those in which one is needy of the ruler, such as the wealth of the orphans, so the wilayat al faqih should be established in it; and it is of no consequence. And apparently, there is no agreement among the people regarding the problems whose ruling they know not. So it is necessary for them that they turn towards one who does their istinbaat from the traditions that have appeared regarding them. And what is meant by the ‘narrators of the hadith’ are the fuqahaa’ (jurists) who have comprehension of the hadith and know its particularity and its generalisation and its manifest and its ambiguous. And they recognise its authentic from its diseased (weak) and its good from its forged. And these are they who have the power of decomposing the unadulterated from it from the spurious ones and discriminating the original from the fake, al matqul (?), not those who recite the known books and memorise the apparent of its expressions (words) but do not understand its meaning nor have the ability of istinbaat while they claim that they are the bearers of the hadith. And as to Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri رضي الله عنه – and his father before him – verily he is thiqah (trustworthy) and his writing is my writing. And as to Muhammad b. `Ali b. Mahziyar al Ahwazi, then Allah has reformed for him his heart and removed his doubt from him. And as to what is made to reach us through him, it is not acceptable near us except when it is clean and pure, and the earning through the songstress is haram (in other versions: ثمن القينة حرام – earnings of the alqainah (?) meaning the singing slave girls). And as to Muhammad b. Shadhaan b. Na`eem, he is a man from our shi`ah of the Ahl al Bayt. And as to Abu ‘l Khattab Muhammad b. Abu Zainab al Ajda`, he is cursed and his companions are cursed. So do not accompany the followers of their discourses, for verily I am distanced from them and my fathers عليهم السلام are distanced from them. And as to those who clothe themselves with our wealth, then whoever deems it permissible (to himself) anything of it and he eats of it, he has only taken in Fire. And as to the khums, then it has been made permissible to our shi`ah and they have been made free of it till the time of zhuhur (advent) of our affair, that their births may be made pleasant and not impure/unclean. And as to the regret of the people, then they have indeed doubted in Allah (aj)’s religion over what has reached us through Him and He has raised us independent and there is no need of a relationship with the doubting ones. And as to the cause of the transpiring of the occultation, then verily Allah (aj) says: ‘O you who believe! Do not ask about (those) things which if revealed to you would torment you’ [surat al Ma’idah: 102]. Verily there was not one from my fathers عليهم السلام but there happened to be the bay`ah (pledge of allegiance) to the despot of his time on his neck, and I will emerge when I will emerge and there shall not be the bay`ah of anyone of the despots on my neck. And as to the benefit from me in my ghaibah (occultation), then it is that of the sun when it is concealed from the eyes in the clouds. And surely I am a safeguard for the inhabitants of the earth like the stars are the safeguards for the inhabitants of the sky. So lock the door of questioning regarding that which is not meant for you and do not task yourself beyond the knowledge of that which suffices you. And make as much du`aa’ (as you can) for the hastening of the reappearance, for in it is your felicity. And peace be upon you, O Ishaq b. Ya`qub, and upon the one who follows guidance. 5 ـ حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه ، عن سعد بن عبد الله ، عن علي بن محمد الرازي المعروف بعلان الكليني قال : حدثني محمد بن شاذان بن نعيم النيسابوري قال : اجتمع عندي مال للغريم عليه السلام ( 1 ) خمسمائة درهم ، ينقص منها عشرين درهما فأنفت ( 2 ) أن أبعث بها ناقصة هذا المقدار ، فأتممتها من عندي وبعثت بها إلى محمد بن جعفر ( 3 ) ولم أكتب مالي فيها فأنفذ إلي محمد بن جعفر القبض ، وفيه « وصلت خمسمائة درهم ، لك منها عشرون درهما » . 5 – Muhammad b. al Hasan b. Ahmad b. al Walid (ra) narrated to us from Sa`d b. `Abdullah from `Ali b. Muhammad al Razi known famously as al Kulayni. He said: Muhammad b. Shadhan b. Na`eem al Neishapuri narrated to me. He said: I had collected five hundred dirhams of wealth for the creditor (gharim) عليه السلام (in other manuscripts: للقائم عليه السلام - for the Qa’im عليه السلام, and the application of al gharim to the Master because of his being the Master for the haqq (truth, right), may Allah Ta`ala hasten his reappearance). There were twenty dirhams less in it. I disliked (i.e. كرهت – I was averse, and in some manuscripts فأبيت – so I refused) to send this amount with the deficiency in it. So I completed it from myself and sent it to Muhammad b. Ja`far (he is Muhammad b. Ja`far al Asadi, Abul Husain al Razi, one of the gates/doors (viz. to reach the Imam) as in Sitt) and I did not write about my wealth in it. So a receipt reached Muhammad b. Ja`far and in it was: Send five hundred dirhams and twenty dirhams therein are for you. 6 ـ حدثني أبي رضي الله عنه ، قال : حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله ، عن إسحاق بن يعقوب قال : سمعت الشيخ العمري رضي الله عنه يقول : صحبت رجلا من أهل السواد ومعه مال للغريم عليه السلام فأنفذه فرد عليه ، وقيل له : أخرج حق ولد عمك منه وهو أربعمائة درهم ، فبقي الرجل متحيرا باهتا متعجبا ونظر في حساب المال وكانت في يده ضيعة لولد عمه قد كان رد عليهم بعضها وزوى عنهم بعضها فإذا الذي نض لهم ( 4 ) من ذلك المال أربعمائة درهم ، كما قال عليه السلام ، فأخرجه وأنفذ الباقي فقبل . 6 – My father (ra) narrated to me. He said: Sa`d b. `Abdullah narrated to us from Ishaq b. Ya`qub. He said: I heard the Shaykh, al `Amri (ra) say: I was accompanying a man from the Ahl al Sawad (rural areas?) who had the wealth for the Gharim عليه السلام with him. He dispatched it but it was returned to him and he was told: Remove the right of the son (children) of your uncle from it and it is four hundred dirhams. So the man remained bewildered, perplexed, surprised and he looked into the account of the wealth and there was a landed estate with him for the son (children) of his uncle, part of which had already been yielded to them and part of which had been concealed from them. So when he had obtained for them (in Nihayat al Atheeriyyah: خذ صدقة ما نض من اموالهم – take the alms of what has appeared of their possessions, i.e. what has been obtained and has appeared from the price of their goods etcetera) from that wealth four hundred dirhams like he عليه السلام said, he removed it and dispatched the rest and it was accepted. 7 ـ حدثني أبي رضي الله عنه ، عن سعد بن عبد الله ، عن علي بن محمد الرازي قال : حدثني جماعة من أصحابنا أنه ( 5 ) بعث إلى أبي عبد الله بن الجنيد وهو بواسط غلاما وأمر ببيعه ، فباعه وقبض ثمنه ، فلما عير الدنانير نقصت من التعيير ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة ، فوزن من عنده ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة وأنفذها فرد عليه دينارا وزنه ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة . 7 – My father رضي الله عنه narrated to me from Sa`d b. `Abdullah from `Ali b. Muhammad al Razi. He said: A group of our companions narrated to me that surely he (meaning, Sahib al Amr عليه السلام) sent to Abu `Abdillah b. al Junaid and he through an intermediary, a boy and commanded his sale. So he sold him and received his price. When he measured the money, it was found to be eighteen carats and a measure (habbah – weight of a grain of barley) less from the weight. So he measured out eighteen carats and a habbah from his own and dispatched it. Then one dinar was returned to him, its weight being eighteen carats and a habbah.
  9. Why is Imam MahdiÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ called Abu Saleh? What is the meaning behind this? Does the ImamÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ have a son named Saleh? Wa salaam.
  10. Asked if Saudi Arabia was ready to open a direct dialogue with Tehran, Mohammed said it was impossible to talk with a power that was planning for the return of the Imam Mahdi - whom Shi'ites believe was a descendent of the Prophet who went into hiding 1,000 years ago and will return to establish global Islamic rule before the end of the world. "How do you have a dialogue with this (Iran)?" Mohammed said in clips of the interview posted on social media. "Its (Iran's) logic is that the Imam Mahdi will come and they must prepare the fertile environment for the arrival of the awaited Mahdi and they must control the Muslim world." https://www.google.ca/amp/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN17Y1FK

    Sheikh Toosi book?

    Do anyone has link or book in English or Urdu of Sheikh Toosi about Imam Mehdi atfs
  12. [Mod Note: Personal information was removed.] I want an honest answer to the ttle question ; Can imam mahdi be mixed race and not specifically Arab ? Thank you Peace
  13. @Fahad Sani has posed the following question/comment about the ability of Imam Mahdi (as) to help us: I think this is a legitimate question that deserves an answer:
  14. YOUR THOUGHTS? The Twelver Shia scholar admits that the Twelver Shias claim to follow ahlebait but in reality are following marjaas whose rulings are based on guesswork/conjecture. It can not be fully confirmed (may be this is the reason why they are not showing source for their rulings). Twelver Shias are following a marja instead of an actual Imam. This also justify above thread somehow.

    After all you're my soul But sure you own it sole Can i pray and loudly say Do come with no delay Eyes and heart are so dark Fill it up with your spark Good days will come too Heaven is what but you I will cry but so shy Judge me from my eye Knowing you what shall I do Love, adore, and still due My only one under the sun Needy and lost; to you shall run Only if I; glimpse you and die Peaceful I can close my eye Question me for what i see Really you; not her, him nor we Seeing you but; eyes will not shut Truly from your face to glut (يشبع) Under my skins moving in my veins Vanished is myself and you reigns (يسيطر) When earth as a whole in your hands fall X-large or small you will own it all You’re my Mahdi my holy grandee (النبيل) Zoom in my heart you made dandy (مدهش) In every letter I wrote to you thy LOVE My Divine Lord just look above.

    assalamualaikum brothers n sisters, Ashadu an la ilaha illa-llah, wa ashadu anna Muhammadun Aabduhu wa rasuluh.. . , im a born muslim.. im from india. .some hindu people who are courageous, do speculative thinking,driven by common sense not by emotions,feelings,anger,rage,love etc . . these kind of people use logic.They are not proud of their forefathers or ancestry,they dont believe in fairy tales.They argue with their parents and eventually they either become atheist or become muslim . my question is -people from every major religion go through some kind of test..These people from hindu religion will think which god is correct - murugan or vishnu or ram etc.. similarly in buddhism - they will have some kind of test. And in christianity, they believe prophet jesus as god . .hindus have some test which will test their faith , jews have some test which will test their faith, buddhist have some test which will test their faith, christians have some tests which will test their faith Now what kind of ´Test´ is there for muslims?.... we believe prophet muhammad(saw) as the last prophet and islam is the final and correct religion... are we special ? we ´muslim´ don´t have to go through any exams in this life ? so i don´t have to use my speculative thinking becuz i know islam is correct...right ? Sunni vs Shia ? How to find out which is correct . one way to find out is- finding ´errors´. please post- Details on Imam Mahdi ,return of Prophet jesus and Dajjal According to both shia and sunni sources if there are 90% errors in sunni or shia ,then i will know who is wrong n who is right. then in day of judgement - standing before god , i can atleast say i tried. please dont redirect me to other topic or pages.
  17. Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim Salam Aleykum, What would you do if Imam Mahdi is not shia? Will you believe and help him? If he has all the characteristics, sunnahs and struggles that Ahlul Bayt (as) mentioned, that both sunni and shia mentioned, trials, justice, Allah's Messenger's (saaws) Sunna and character, piety, knowledge, guidance and help of Allah , many Signs from Allah that he is the one, and everything about him shows you that he is Imam Mahdi, but he is not shia, will you accept him although it contradicts shia views of Imam Mahdi? What if Imam Mahdi is not arab but his origin is arabic? What if he is not born in Madina but Allah will show him from Madina? If he is sunni, but loves the Ahlul Bayt (as) like no other person, and struggles and fights for them while the rest are hesitating, and he struggles and fights for Allah's Messenger (saaws), will you accept him? If he loves the Sahaba (ra), and understands them better than anyone else, he knows what really happened and explains and proves that they were the best of people on earth after the Prophets (as), and as for Muawiya, he rejects him as Sahaba but leaves that matter to Allah's Hands to Judge and points out the errors that Muawiya made but warns to not curse him nor any Sahaba will you still accept him? He hates yazid and defends Hussein (as), when he hears about Hussein (as) his eyes flow with tears and his heart beats fast, but he also loves the Sahaba (ra) and his love for them is very great, will you still refuse him? He defends the shia in whatever they are right, and he even defends them against sunnis, still he loves both and wants them united, so he fights for both of them and teaches them mercy. He loves shia as brothers, LOVES IRAN and its people, supports them in their struggle against the enemies of Allah, he counts shia in Iran and Sayed Nasrallah as best among the best of the Ummah, but he explains shia that some of what they believe is not true and Islamic, but actually a corruption by the zionist crusade, and proves them that Sunni is the correct creed, will you still refuse him just because of what you have been taught all these years? If Imam Mahdi shows you that you have misunderstood the hadith about him from Ahlul Bayt (as), and that a lot of it has been added into your group, will you still refuse him even after that? I need to know whether you are ready to accept Imam Mahdi and fight for Allah with your life, heart and wealth, are you ready to accept him for the sake of Allah if he is not Shia? Ask yourself very well and honestly these questions and answer them, if you answer with "no" in all the questions, then ask yourself whether you are really sincere to Allah after all, whether you follow Allah's Qur'an, or you follow whatever tradition and parents follow. The jews refused Allah's Messenger Muhammad (saaws) because of their envy and pride against arabs, they did not accept him because of his being arab, though he had all the Signs that he is the one propheciesed in their books. That made them fall into worse sins that lead them to all the corruption and injustice they do today. So don't fall into the same trap! If you are not ready, then Shia will suffer trials until they are ready to accept him, even if he is not Shia, and only then Allah inshAllah will reveal him. Allah has Mercy for you, you still believe in His tawhid and you have not fallen to what jews have fallen to when Isa (as) and Muhammad (saaws) came. Therefore, build your Iman and relationship with Allah first, if you have built the Iman and are ready to die for Allah, then you will be ready for Imam Mahdi inshAllah even if he is not shia, Allah Azza wa Jal will enable you to accept him if you have Iman. If you are not ready, then there is much work to be done, work on it inshAllah my brothers and sisters because it will save you from being astray when the time comes, and the Iman will inshAllah earn you a place with Allah Azza wa Jall in Janna and save you from Jahannam. That time will be a very very very hard time, lots of trials will occur that you haven't even thought of, most of the world will be devastated and what will remain will be only few lands, it will be Allah's Help during a nuclear war, meaning when Imam Mahdi comes there will be already a world war which will increase and head towards Malhama. That will then be a huge battle between truth and falsehood, more precisely a battle between the army of Allah vs shaytan and his army, and I mean this literally. The dajjal's army is shaytan's army. Don't worry about the technology and guns, Allah Azza wa Jall already has Plans against that, built Tawakkul in Allah, Allah Azza wa Jal is the Protector. All tyrants and injustice will be broken down, thereafter comes a beautiful rain that will make earth beautiful similar to Paradise, this will be Allah's Mercy before he gives the believers the real Paradise. The earth will be destroyed and remade only after Muslims get Victory worldwide, this fight will not be for anything else except Allah's Haq and Justice. Therefore, Muslims, shia and sunni need a very strong foundation of Tawhid and Yaqin Certainty in Allah Azza wa Jal in their heart, because they will have to struggle like no other people in history, lots of time they will feel like giving up, this is why you must build your Iman in Allah Azza wa Jal, so that nothing can break you, NOTHING. Don't ask for Allah Azza wa Jal to hasten Imam Mahdi's arrival, until you are ready for it. Because when he comes, he is going to put you into work, from children to old, he will give you lots of different directions and teach you how to focus on Allah Azza wa Jal in everything you do, meaning whatever you do will be ONLY for Allah and His Love for you. Allah is number one, everything comes second, his army will be only with this type of men and women. You need to be ready for that work spiritually, mentally and physically, you will need to be educated a lot in Islam and other subjects, because you will do Da'wah while struggling in Allah's Way. Get to work inshAllah, the time is near inshAllah, but get to work and start being merciful to each other in the Ummah, start treating Sunnis as brothers except the extremist fools, but work on unity with Sunni, you will really need it! Whether the Imam is among us or not, our purpose is to serve and worship Allah, that is what matters, so start building Tawhid and Yaqin in Allah Azza wa Jal with knowledge, begin with the Qur'an, then science, know politics, and understand history, focus on fixing your Nafs, make a LOT of Zikr and memorise the Qur'an, learn a lot about spirituality from the Ahlul Bayt (as) especially Ali (as), make him (as) your role model only after Allah's Messenger (saaws); put on top Allah's Messenger (saaws), Shia do not know him almost at all, make more lectures about the Messenger (saaws), and learn how to be like him; never curse (ra) the Sahaba since you have no clue who they really were, their bodies were full of blood to defend Allah's Qur'an and His Messenger (saaws), nobody can dare to insult and slander them, Allah Azza wa Jal your Lord commands Muslims in the Qur'an to not slander each other so fear Allah Al Jabbar your Creator. Learn to take it easy on each other and mankind, be harsh only against Allah's Azza wa Jal enemies, serve Allah Azza wa Jal and help mankind, because a lot of them need Da'wa and will be Muslims especially after the major trials begin, your Da'wah will help them inshAllah. Talk to mankind and new Muslims only about Allah Azza wa Jal, the proofs of Islam and the Qur'an, leave the shia sunni issues aside especially when you yourself do not comprehend what really the issue is - a political one made by zionist jews to cause hatred amongst Muslims. Think about what I said, and do follow my advice seriously, inshAllah you will understand, may Allah Azza wa Jal help and strengthen you for Imam Mahdi, Amin Allah. Salam aleykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu
  18. Assalam O Alaikum all dear brothers and sisters, I want to know, Why shia say this phrase "ajjil farajahum" (May Allah Hasten His Return). Is there any narration from Imams which confirm/support this? Plz share if anyone knows? While on the other hand there are narrations which are clearly against this phrase. Original source: https://www.al-islam.org/kitab-al-ghayba-book-occultation-sheikh-an-numani/chapter-16-forbidding-timing-and-naming-al-qaim#fref_63c9118a_1 (1) Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Sa'eed narrated from Ali bin al-Hasan from al-Hasan bin Ali bin Yousuf from Muhammad bin Ali from Sa’dan bin Muslim that Abu Baseer had said: I said to Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (as): “Does this matter (the appearance of al-Mahdi) not have an end so that we relieve ourselves?” He said: “Yes, it does. But you (people) announced it; therefore Allah put it off.” Other reference: Biharul Anwar, vol.52 p.117. (15) Muhammad bin Ya'qoob narrated from al-Husayn bin Muhammad from Ja'far bin Muhammad from al-Qassim bin Issma'eel al-Anbari from al-Hasan bin Ali from Ibraheem bin Muhzim from his father that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (as) had said when the (Abbasid) rulers had been mentioned before him: “People perished because they hastened this matter (deliverance). Allah does not become hasty just because that people urge on their matters to be achieved. This matter (the appearance of al-Qa'im) has a precise time that it must reach. If it reaches its time, it will occur neither an hour sooner nor an hour later.” Other reference: Al-Kafi, vol.1 p.369, Biharul Anwar, vol.52 p.118, Mo’jam Ahadeeth al-Imam al-Mahdi, vol.3 p.418 Jazak Allah Khairan
  19. Salam Alaykum dear brothers/sisters I would like to share with you some information about believing in Imam Mahdi in religions: Futurism, which is to believe that a great divine savior will come, is a fixed and a prevalent belief that has been always with all nations throughout the world. It means to believe in a bright future that will put an end to distress and worries and to believe that due to emergence of a distinct and divine person, all sort of darkness will be erased from the face of the world and the base of oppression, negligence and degradation will be uprooted. In religious texts, there are some names and titles given to such a savior. Some of them are as follows: In Judaism he is called "M'ashih". In Christianity he is called "Messiah" In Zoroastrianism he is called "Svshyans" In Hinduism he is called "Vishnu", or "Klky" In Buddhism he is called "Maitreya, the fifth Buddha " And, in Islam he is called "Mahdi" and "Qa'em" It is understood from the history of the nations that to believe in the emergence of a potent, divine leader and a promised reformer at the end of this world, has been always a very fixed belief among all nations and all the followers of divine religions. This belief is so profound that people in their ups and downs used to always release themselves from hopelessness and disappointment through reminding themselves about the emergence of such a savior and they used to look forward to see him coming at a time. Here it should be noted that, what is understood from referring to this Savior in various religions is that each of them Believe in a single savior that will take the control of the world and will bring it into justice and tranquility. They do not believe in many different saviors and do not say that there is a savior among the Jews, one among the Christians, one in Islam, and so on and so forth. As a result, there are two facts: Firstly, to believe in a savior should be true belief since we see that all of the religions talk about it and it is impossible to say all of them are mistaken and say something wrong. Secondly, when again we see that all of them talk about a single savior there should be just a single one not many saviors. The conclusion is that, there is just one Savior, but every religion talks about him with a special name and traits and all point to a same man. The savior in Islam is the exact one that is the savior in Judaism and Christianity. But some of these religions mistakenly matched it with another man that is not in reality the Promised Savior. He is not the Lord and is not Jesus. He is al-Mahdi that is descended from the final prophet (Muhammad).

    Why Imam Mahdi is 'hiding'?

    By: Sayed Mahdi Yarahmadian, The occultation of the Imam of Time (afs) does not mean that the Imam is living a paranormal or different life. For example, he is not living in a cave and the likes of such places. In fact, according to some traditions, the Imam is living among the people in a way such that he is not recognized. The only difference between the Imam and the ordinary people is in the longevity of the former's life which is with the will and power of God, the Exalted. There are reasons behind occultation of the Imam (afs) some of which have been explained and some have remained unknown and unheard of. Also, there are certain conditions and requirements for the Imam's reappearance which have not yet been met. One of those conditions is that the Imam (afs) is in need of 313 special companions in addition to the ordinary followers. Finally, considering the narrations and that the present Iranian government enjoys jurisprudential and narrative legitimacy, the present government can be considered as favorable and conducive to the global government of the Imam of Time, may Allah hasten his reappearance. https://www.al-islam.org/fazail-ul-mahdi-ali-akbar-talaafi/short-biography-imam-mahdi-aj

    Is Sheikh Nimr, "Nafse Zaki"?

    More and more people are asking about if the holy warrior, "Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Al Nimr" was the "Nafse Zaki" as prescibed in the prophecies of return of Imam Mahdi a.s (May Allah hasten his reappearance). To help out your curious mind. You'll witness the riwayats and hadiths related to "Nafse Zaki - Pure Soul". Note: Before reading below, beware that the signs of reappearance isn't explicitly the result for the return of the Imam Mahdi a.s except the 5 that are obligatory. 1. On the 25th Zil-Hijjah the announcement will be made and the announcer killed (This is the blood of Nafse Zakiyya - pure soul, those whose blood will touch the Ka'ba and who is mentioned in numerous prophecies). 2. His blood will be avenged 2 weeks later when Imam(a.s.) will appear himself at the Ka'ba. 3. In the 13th volume of Bihar-ul-Anwar, Imam Al-Baqir(a.s.) is quoted as saying that "The Qaim (Imam Al-Mahdi(a.s.)) will send one of his companions to Makka and will ask him to inform them that I'm sent by so-and-so to you and that we are the merciful Ahlul-Bayt and the Store-house of 'Risalat' (religious guidance) and 'Khilafat' and we are the progeny of Muhammad(pbuh&hf) and from the time that the Prophet of Islam(pbuh&hf) left this world until now, we've been oppressed and deprived and our rights have been usurped. So we call you to befriend us. When that young man will utter these words, he will be caught and beheaded between 'Rukn' and 'madam' (in Masjidul Haram) and this young man is the 'Nafse Zaki'.......... And between the death of the 'Nafse Zaki' and the re-appearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (A.S.) there will not be a gap of fifteen nights". 4. Nafs-e-Zakiyyah is a person by the name of Muhammad ibn al-Hasan (Allama Majlisi. Bihar al-Anwar 52) 5. He is a descendant of Husayn ibn Ali (Allama Majlisi. Bihar al-Anwar 52) 6. Duty of Nafs-e-Zakiyyah is mentioned in a hadith that narrated by Abu-Basir from Muhammad al-Baqir. According to the hadith when Muhammad al-Mahdi realizes, people of Mecca don't accept his reappearance. Therefore, he will send Nafs-e-Zakiyyah as an envoy to convey his oral message to people of Mecca (Majlisi, Muhammad Baqir. Bihar al-Anwar 52. p. 307) 7. He will be slayed by people of Mecca around the Ka'ba after impart Imam's message to them. (Hashemi Shahidi, Seyyed Asadullah. Introduce of promised person. Jamkaran Mosque Publication. p. 524.) 8. It will rise from the west; a pure soul (nafs zakiyya) will be killed in the outskirts of Kufa with seventy righteous men; a Hashimite will be slaughtered between the corner (of the Ka'ba) and the station of Abraham) 9. As well, before the advent of the Imam, a noble person will be killed during the Hajj rites in Makkah. In the traditions, this person has been referred to as the Pure Soul or an-Nafs al-Zakiyyah. 10. Upon the death of Nafs-e-Zakiyya, a voice will resonate from the skies declaring, “Be aware that your ruler is the Mahdi who shall fill the earth with truth and justice.” (Eqdud-Durar) (http://www.islamicinsights.com/religion/signs-of-the-return.html) 11. Five signs will be seen before the uprising of the Qaim: Arrival of the Yemenite man, Sufyani, Call from the sky, Sinking of the ground in Baidha desert and Killing of the Pure Soul (Nafse Zakiyyah).” 12. (Bihar Al Anwar Vol-51-52-53-( the-Promised-Mahdi-English v 13 -Translation ) Chapter Thirty book II, Ikmaaluddin- Shaykh Saduq) 13. After that Imam Mahdi (a.s.) would arise and his standard would be held by Shuaib bin Salih. When Syrians realize that their country has come under the rule of the descendant of Abu Sufyan they would go to Mecca. Nafse Zakiyyah and his brother would be killed at that time. 14. Nafse Zakiyyah (the pure soul) is a young man from the Progeny of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.), his name is Muhammad bin Hasan, who would be killed without any crime and sin and when they slay, him they shall neither have any excuse in the heavens nor would they have any friend in the earth. At that time the Almighty Allah will send the Qaim of Aale Muhammad with a group that in the view of the people would be softer than antimony. 15. Imam Ja'far Sadiq (a.s.) said: And mutual discord in Bani so-and-so is inevitable, killing of Nafse Zakiyya is inevitable and the rising of Imam Qaim is also inevitable. 16. "When Nafse Zakiyyah (pure person) will be killed, a voice from the sky will declare, ‘Your leader is so and so!’ Then Mahdi will rise and will fill the earth with justice and equity." (Ammare Yasir) Summarizing the Ahadith/Riwayats mentioned above: 1. There are 2 nafs-e-Zakiyya mentioned in the riwayats i.e one would be killed in Kufa (Iraq) and the other would be killed in Saudi (Hijaz) 2. The Nafs-e-Zakiyya is not a name but a nick name meaning (A pure soul). 3. Nafs-e-Zakiyya name would be "Muhammad ibn al-Hasan" 4. Killing of Nafs-e-Zakiyya is among the 5 major signs of reappearance of the Imam Mahdi a.s 5. He would be Syed Hashmi (from the progeny of Prophet Mohammad s.a) (Ayatollah Nimr is not a Syed but a Sheikh) 6. Nafs-e-Zakiyaa would call upon people to introduce the Ahlulbayt but he would be killed for this. 7. Imam Mahdi a.s would rise right after 15 days of killing of Nafs-e-Zakiya. I've collected the above Signs from several websites. Thus the Ahadith mentioned may be Sahih or Zaieef (Strong or weak respectively) Hope you would conclude it on your own.

    All about the "Sufyani"

    We all have heard a lot about Sufyani and yet couldn't recognize it because of several reasons. Till today, there are mix stories about Sufyani so I thought to compile all about Sufyani in deep so that interested eyeballs could benefit from it. Importance of Sufyani Sufyani is a character and his appearance is one of the signs of reappearance that has to be appeared before the arrival of Imam Mahdi a.s. Rise of Sufyani, Yamani and Khurasani in the same year, month and day is one of the signs that is mentioned iteratively in many of the Ahadith which proves its importance as a proof of nearness of Imam Mahdi a.s. Sufyani's Traits and Appearance The mystical sufyani is named as "Usman bin Anbasa" and would rise from the deep Damascus (Syria). He would have small pox, a christian cross hidden in his neck and not much popular among the Syrians but identified as a person who would take revenge against the Ashab(Lion - Merely Bashar ul Assad) and Abqa()Patchy dotted face). He would be the most ferocious killer of the time and one of the Ahadith of Imam claims that Abu Sufyan was the man who hated Imam Ali a.s and killed him, Mawiya was the one who killed Imam Hasan, Yazeed killed Imam Hussain a.s and then the Sufyani who would appear to confront Imam Mahdi a.s. According to Imam Ali a.s that the man would appear from deep damascus (Wadi-e-Yabas), he would be illiterate, ill-mannered and ill-faced having small pox on his head. If you see him, he would then look like one-eye binded (Kana in Urdu), he would appear in Damascus and sit on the minbar of Damascus. Events mentioned before his appearance: According to Imam Ali a.s quotation (summary): Shaam (Syria) would be rattled by a horrific earth quake leading to the killing of 1 million people. After this, you would see white/black vehicles (vehicles without ears and tails) coming from the West (Magrib) having Yellow colored flags in their hands and they would start killing from the West part and reaches to Syria. When you see this, you should wait for the land (named as Marmarsa or Harasta) near Damascus to be buried into the ground. When this happens you would see Sufyani would rise from the deep of Damascus, Syria. Journey of Sufyani (RAJAB - RABI UL AWWAL) Sufyani will appear in the scenes to destroy Ashab and Abqa in islamic month of Rajab (as mentioned above). Riwayats says that the all of the 3 including Abqa and Ashab would create a menace just because they wanted to rule the Syria. Sufyani would kill the both parties and win over them. One thing to remember is that Sufyani wouldn't rule more than 9 months(mentioned frequently by imams). There is a gap of 6 months of his appearance and Imam's reappearance. Sufyani in Syria: Sufyani would be well received and supported by the majority and so does he win over Ashab and Abqa. Further more, Sufyani would be very powerful and the frequent Ahadith claims that Sufyani would be able to invade 5 places including: Damascus, Homs, Urdun (Jordan), Qansarin (Aleppo I think) and Iraq. Sufyani in Iraq: After taking over Jordan, Sufyani would then move to the Iraq where there will be many groups fighting including Rome (West - USA/Britain/France/Europe) and Turks (Russians) and Iraq forces. They all would lose man power because there would be a horrific bloodshed killing thousands. After this, Sufyani would enter Iraq, defeats Yamani and the lands where Yamani have already secured its positions till they reach Kufa where Sufyani would kill Shias ruthlessly and will call for people to bring them the heads of Shias to get a reward in return. There will be certain uprisings against Sufyani in Iraq but Sufyani would prove more powerful. Sufyani in Iran: After so much success, Sufyani would be greedy to attack Iran and hence move towards Shiraz, Iran where he would fight withSeyyed Khurasani. Sufyani in Hijaz (Saudi Arabia): Sufyani's faction of army would march towards Medina but Imam would have already appeared in at that time in Makkah and would wait till the Sufyani's army (Sufyani wouldn't be there in the army sent to Hijaaz) would grounded between Mecca and Medina. There are also claims that Sufyani's army would destroy Medina for 30 days. That army of Sufyani will then move to Mecca where they will be buried down into the ground. Sufyanis' End: Raamallah (Israel/Palestine) would be the last stop of Sufyani because after the reappearance of Imam Mahdi a.s he would leave Makkah and then move towards Raamallah (Israel/Palestine) recapturing every region under Sufyanis control. This would be the end of Sufyani's 9 months and the beginning of the world wide revolution of confronting USA (Romis) and Israel (Yahoodis).

  25. Assalam-o-Alaikum, wa Rehmatullah, wa Barakatuhu. ARE THESE NARRATIONS ABOUT 12TH IMAM AUTHENTIC? ANSWER WITH EVIDENCES? All below narrations are taken from Kitab al-Ghaybah or The Book of Occultation of Sheikh Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Ibraheem bin Ja'far al-Katib Known as Ibn Abu Zaynab an-Numani, earliest and most important shia work on occultation of 12th Imam. Same book was totaly included by Baqir Majlisi in his Bihar ul Anwar volumes 51, 52, & 53. All prominent shia scholars have narrated from this book. Like Toosi, Hurr Amili etc. Online: https://www.al-islam.org/kitab-al-ghayba-book-occultation-sheikh-an-numani Download: http://alhassanain.org/english/?com=book&id=903 About the author (Numani) Sheikh Numani got most of his knowledge from Yaqoob Kulayni, author of Al-Kafi. He wrote many books, Jami’ul Akhbar, Ar-Radd ala (answering) al-Isma’eeliyya, Al-Ghayba, Al-Fara’idh, Nathrul La’ali. He finished this book till 342 AH, he died in 360 AH, much before Sheikh Sadooq and Sheikh Toosi. An-Najashi said about him: “He is a sheikh (teacher) from among our companions. He is great in position, noble in rank, loyal in faith and he has narrated many traditions.” Al-Mahoozi said: “He is praiseworthy, lofty and one of the sheikhs, who give permission (who evidence others’ knowledge or works).” About the book (Ghaybah) Al-Hurr al-Aamily said: “It is good and sufficient.” Al-Mahoozi said: “It has many benefits and unheard traditions.” From Chapter 13: Al-Qaim’s aspects and deeds (16) Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Sa'eed bin Oqda narrated from Ali bin al-Hasan from Muhammad bin Khalid from Tha’laba bin Maymoon that al-Hasan bin Haroon had said: Once I was sitting with Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (as) when al-Mu’alla bin Khunays asked him: “Will al-Qa'im (as), when he appears, act unlike the way, in which Ali (as) has acted?” He said: “Yes, he will. Ali has acted with leniency and forgiving because he has known that his Shia are going to be controlled after him. But al-Qa'im (as), when appears, will kill and capture because he knows that his Shia will not be defeated after him forever.” (18) Ali bin al-Husayn narrated from Muhammad bin Yahya al-Attar from Muhammad bin Hassaan ar-Razi from Muhammad bin Ali al-Kufi from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Abu Nasr from al-Ala’ fro Muhammad bin Muslim that Abu Ja'far al-Baqir (as) had said: “If people know what al-Qa'im (as) will do when he appears, most of them will wish he would not appear. He kills great numbers of people. He begins with the people of Quraysh. He kills much many of them until many people say: He is not from Muhammad’s progeny. If he is from Muhammad’s progeny, he will be merciful!” (19) Ali bin al-Husayn narrated from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Abu Nasr from Aasim bin Hameed al-Hannat from Abu Baseer that Abu Ja'far al-Baqir (as) had said: “Al-Qa'im will rise with a new task, new principles and new judgements. He will be severe with the Arabs. He will do not but killing. He will not forgive anyone and he will not care for any blame because he acts for the sake of Allah. (22) Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Sa'eed narrated from Yahya bin Zakariyya bin Shayban from Yousuf bin Kulayb from al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abu Hamza from Aasim bin Hameed al-Hannat that Abu Hamza ath-Thimali had heard Abu Ja'far al-Baqir (as) saying: “When al-Qa'im of Muhammad’s family appears, Allah will support him with His angels. Gabriel will be in front of him, Michael on the right and Israfel on the left. Terror will precede him about a month-travel before him, behind him, on the right side and on the left side.

But you (people) announced it; therefore Allah put it off.” (10) Muhammad bin Ya'qoob al-Kulayni narrated from Ali bin Muhammad and Muhammad bin al-Hasan from Sahl bin Ziyad and Muhammad bin Yahya from Ahmad bin Muhammad from al-Hasan bin Mahboob that Abu Hamza ath-Thimali had heard Abu Ja'far al-Baqir (as) saying: “Allah had timed this matter to occur in the year seventy (A.H.) but when al-Husayn (as) was killed, He became so angry and put it off until the year one hundred and forty. We told you of that and you announced it and uncovered the secret, so after that Allah did not reveal any timing to us concerning this matter. Allah said: (Allah makes to pass away and establishes what He pleases, and with Him is the basis of the Book).15” Abu Hamza said: “I told Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (as) of that and he said: “Yes, it was so.” (15) Muhammad bin Ya'qoob narrated from al-Husayn bin Muhammad from Ja'far bin Muhammad from al-Qassim bin Issma'eel al-Anbari from al-Hasan bin Ali from Ibraheem bin Muhzim from his father that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (as) had said when the (Abbasid) rulers had been mentioned before him: “People21 perished because they hastened this matter (deliverance). Allah does not become hasty just because that people urge on their matters to be achieved. This matter (the appearance of al-Qa'im) has a precise time that it must reach. If it reaches its time, it will occur neither an hour sooner nor an hour later.” Other sources: (1). Biharul Anwar, vol.52 p.117. (10).

He said to me: “O Abban, Allah will bring three hundred and thirteen men in this mosque. The people of Mecca know that neither their (those men’s) fathers nor grandfathers have been created yet. They will come with their swords on their shoulders. On each sword the name of its keeper, his father’s name, his aspect and lineage are written. Then a caller will call out: “This is al-Mahdi.
