#12 Imam Mahdi (af) [OFFICIAL THREAD]

Recommended Posts

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Name: Muhammad

Title: al-Mahdi, al-Qaim, al-Hujjah, Sahib Al-Zaman, Baqiyutullah

Father's name: Al-Hassan Al-Askari - 11th Imam (pbuhim)

Mother's name: Nargis - Daughter of the king of Rome.

Birth: In Sammara, on Friday the 15th of Shaaban 255 A.H.

Imam Al-Mahdi will unite the East and the West. His father Imam Hassan Al-Askari is from the East. And His mother Nargis, also known as Malika, was from the west. It is narrated she was the daughter of the king of Rome Yashu'a Ibn Qaisar (Caeser). His mother didn't live close to the Islamic world, but one night she had a dream that the Prophet of Islam came to her and told her to marry one of His children. They told her that she will have a son that will rule the world and fill it with justice. Following this dream, she woke up with the desire to meet these people whom she later realised were the Muslims being fought. She did what she could and was captured by the Islamic army, her desire all along. She was later bought as a merchant along with other prisoners, but was amazed at the good treatment she received. She didn't know why this man treated her with such kindness, as if she was his next of kin. She was later introduced to the same man, as Imam Hassan, the light from her dream with whom she lived happily ever after. With their love, the Prince of our time was born.

Imam Al-Mahdi, is still living and will appear before the end of time..

Imam Ali narrates that Prophet Muhammad (pbuthem both) said:
Even if only a day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet
Allah
will surely send a man from my family who will fill this world with such justice and fairness, just as it initially was filled with oppression.

Prophet Muhammad said:
The promised Mahdi will be among my progeny, among the descendants of Fatima.
(Abu Dawud, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 207; Ibn Majah, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 519)

Rasullah said:
A group of my Ummah will fight for the truth until near the day of judgment when Jesus, the son of Marry, will descend, and the leader of them will ask him to lead the prayer, but Jesus declines, saying: "No, Verily, among you
Allah
has made leaders for others and He has bestowed his bounty upon them.
(Sahih Muslim)

No one can fully understand the reason for the occultation of Imam Mahdi (ajtf) but some explainations bought forward are:

1. The benefit of being tested and purified, this is a test for the beleiver.

2. The benefit of being relieved from having to pay allegiance to unjust rulers.

3. The benefit of being immune from murder.

The minor occultation was needed to prepare his people of the major occultaion to come. Ultimately the reasons of the occultation are based on divine wisdom.

Minor Occultaton: 8th Rabi 'ul-awwal 260 A.H.

Major Occultation: 10 Shawwal 329 AH.

May Allah (swt) hasten his reappearance and may our lives be His (pbuhim) sacrifice. Illahi Amen.

I understand that we should love the Mahdi but what makes one think that his appearance will be in our lifetime?

This book is the biography of the Twelfth Imam, Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi (a.s.), also referred to as the Qaim of Aale Muhammad, the Awaited Imam (a.s.) and the Last of the Successors. The book also covers major objections that the opponents of Shias aim against the belief in Imam Mahdi (a.s.), which the respected author, Baqir Sharif Qarashi has refuted in a convincing way.

Role of Intizar and responsibilities of those who await coming of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)

 

May 5, 2018 - 6:53 PM News Code : 892151 Source : ABNA24Link:  Role of Intizar and responsibilities of those who await coming of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)  

Role of Intizar and responsibilities of those who await coming of Imam Mahdi (a.s.).

In the Name of God, The Compassionate, the Merciful 


The Role of Intizar (Waiting for the Savior of Mankind) and 
Responsibilities of Those Who Await the Coming of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) 

 

Bright future and a world full of happiness is everyone’s expectation to have a calm and peaceful life. Since human beings settled on the planet, they have always had a desire for happy social life, free from sufferings and concerns. This is a psychological principle among all human beings and nations of the world despite all differences in language, ethnicity and religion. 


The vital religion of Islam leads the innate instincts of mankind in a particular direction in order to move towards divine perfection and remain safe from the risk of corruptions. The phenomenon of waiting for a bright future and a better life, which leads to the growth of human beings continuously, is strongly advised and advocated in Islamic teachings. Islam gives glad tidings that the establishment of justice shall only come about through the rule of Islamic justice and global government of righteous rulers under the leadership of an infallible man.

Sayyid ibn Tavous says, I was sitting in a pure basement at night, and I heard that the Hazrat prayed to their Shiites: "O Allah! On right of who calls you  in land and sea, on the poor of believers give the richness and affluence ,on the patients give heal and health, and to their deads , grace  and benefaction and their passengers and their strangers give returning to their homelands "

Behar’Al’Anwar v53 p 302
