    _twelver reacted to Qa'im in 33 Signs Of Reappearance Of Imam Mahdi (AS)   
    A list of eschatological events I compiled a while ago from authentic narrations:
    The Return of the Mahdi
    -Twelve false Imams will come out from Banu Hashim
    -Knowledge in Mecca and Medina will disappear prior to the coming of the Mahdi
    -The people will do takfir of each other
    -There will be a disagreement in the family of `Abbas, causing them to dispute over power
    -Every Arab with a weapon will revolt for himself
    -Tribalism between Mecca and Medina will result in killing
    -The Yamani will rise with a banner of guidance and truth
    -Qays al-Misri and his followers will rise from Egypt
    -Rise of the Khorasani and his followers from Khorasan
    -Rise of the Sufyani in Rajab; who will rule over five regions for the length of a pregnancy of a camel. The five regions according to some traditions are Damascus, Palestine, Jordan, Aleppo, and Homs. The pregnancy of a camel is approximately 13-15 months.
    -The Nafs al-Zakiyya will rise against the Sufyani; he is righteous man from the lineage of Imam Hasan (as)
    -The Mahdi secretly goes from Medina to Mecca, asking Allah to grant him permission to reappear
    -The Mahdi meets some of his followers prior to his rising
    -Nafs al-Zakiyya is killed by the people of Mecca while coming to the Imam, and his head is sent to the Sufyani
    -Jibra'il will call out the name of the Mahdi from the sky, causing the sleepers to wake, the standing to sit and the sitting to stand. The necks of the enemies of Allah will bow down.
    -The call from the heavens will also say “Is not the truth with `Ali and his Shi`a?” All people on Earth will hear this call in their own language.
    Mahdi arises

    -His 313 followers make bay`a to him. The reward of each follower will be equal to fifty of the Prophet’s companions.
    -10,000 people join Imam al-Mahdi.
    -The Mahdi cuts the hands of bani Shayba for thievery. This tribe were charged by the Prophet to protect the Ka`ba.
    -The angels that mourned for Husayn will join the Mahdi and their slogan will be “Vengeance for the blood of Husayn!”
    -The Mahdi will bear Muhammad’s sword, armour, turban, garment, staff, banner, helmet, and saddle; the staff of Musa, and the ring of Sulayman
    -Iblees will call from the Earth at the end of the day “Is not the truth with `Uthman and his followers?”, or “Is not the truth with the Sufyani and his followers?” – this will delude the wrongdoers
    -The worshipers of idols will disbelieve in the Mahdi
    -Masjid Kufa is demolished by the wrongdoers, and the Mahdi will witness this with his followers.
    -The Sufyani's army will be swallowed up by the Earth on its way to Medina
    -The children of `Ali will flee from Medina to Mecca
    -The Mahdi will travel to Kufa, Iraq. All of the believers will either be in Kufa or be on their way there. The 313 men will be gathered in Kufa in one hour.
    -The Mahdi will send an army to Medina, whose people will accept him
    -The Mahdi will unite the people and prevent their takfir of each other
    -The Mahdi will fill the Earth with equity and justice as it would be fraught with injustice and oppression
    -The Mahdi will punish the descendants of the killers of Husayn, because they will be proud of the sin of their forefathers
    -The Mahdi will surround all lands and properties, evict people from them; except for that which is in the hand of the Shi`a
    -The Mahdi will attest to those who paid khums
    -The Mahdi will reinstate the punishment of stoning of adulterers and the execution of the withholder of zakat (these punishments may not be valid during the ghayba)
    -The Mahdi will bring out the mus`haf of Imam `Ali and recite the Qur’an in its qira’a
    -The Mahdi will dress ascetically, following the path of Imam `Ali
    -The truth regarding the first two Caliphs will be revealed and the falsehood regarding them will be hidden

    كمال الدين وتمام النعمة للشيخ الصدوق ص: ( 75 )
    حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني - رضي الله عنه - قال : حدثنا علي ابن إبراهيم بن هاشم قال : حدثني محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد ، عن إبراهيم بن محمد الهمداني - رضي الله عنه - قال :

    بهذا الاسناد عن محمد بن خالد عن حمزة بن عبدالله عن هاشم بن أبي سعيد عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال : إن نوحا عليه السلام حمل في السفينة الكلب والخنزير ولم يحمل فيها ولد الزنا ، والناصب شر من ولد الزنا

    From abi Salt al-Haruwi, al-Mamoon said one day to al-Reda (as), Oh abal Hassan, inform me about your grandfather Ameer al-Momineen (as), in what face (meaning) is he the divider of Heaven and Hell and in what meaning, my thoughts have increased about that.
    So al-Reda (as) said to him, "Oh Commander of the Faithful, do you not narrate from your father from his fathers from Abdullah ibn Abbas that he said, I heard RasulAllah (saww) say, love of Ali (as) is iman, and hating him his disbelief?"
    So he (al-Mamoon) said, "yes."
    Al-Reda (as) said, "Hell and Heaven have been divided if it was on his love and hate for he is the divider of Heaven and Hell."
    So al-Mamoon said, "Nothing remains of my doubts after [speaking with] you oh abal Hassan, I testify that you are the inheritor of the knowledge of RasulAllah (saww).
    So Abu Salt said, "When al-Reda (as) left to his house, I came to him and said to him, Oh son of Allah, what was the best of what you answered with the commander of the faithful?"
    So al-Reda (as) said, "Oh Aba Salt, I have talked with him [in regards to] where he is (concerning knowledge) and I have heard my father narrate about his fathers from Ali (as) that he said, RasulAllah (saww) said, Oh Ali, you are the divider of Heaven and Hell on the Day of Judgement, you will say to the Fire, this [person] is mine and that [person] is yours."

    Salam all,
    This is getting really annoying, whether you acknowledge it or not Farid is at a much higher level than any of us (except for Qaim) and Farid should know that as well. Why he challenges us rather than pm'ing the knowledgeable brothers or as he calls them the "heavy-weights" I honestly don't know but none of that calls for all this derailing and irrelevant comments. Farid, I'm assuming your beliefs are already set and that this debate is actually an attempt to "guide" some of us so as some others suggested, why don't you just post whatever you've found here and save us all from these long, draining threads that ultimately achieve nothing. I'd suggest posting your topic in the Thinkers Discourse section so as to avoid all comments except those approved by the mods and the mods can filter out all irrelevant and side-tracking comments

    That's not rijal That's ilm alhadith
    That is, to know if a piece of Hadith is said by prophet or came from someone's pocket.
    The first person who set up to this science is the prophet when some companions went to study religion from Torah and injil. Prophet told them that those sources are not pure sources and should not be relied upon.
    Our imams were consulted by a number of their companions regarding accepting or rejecting a number of ahadith. Imams answered their question without mocking their rijali approach or the science of confirming a narration.
    Did you know that?

    The same goes for the religion of Islam (or any religion) in general. There are bits and pieces that you can recollect to prove Islam is the true religion from other places, but the only real evidence of Islam is through what the Prophet (saww) claimed to be revelation. 

    This is why they call it a religion Farid. There is a level of faith in the unknown involved. Welcome to the concept.

    [297] 1 ـ محمد بن يعقوب، عن محمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن العلاء بن رزين، عن محمد بن مسلم قال: سمعت أبا جعفر ( عليه السلام ) يقول: كل من دان الله عز وجل بعبادة يجهد فيها نفسه ولا إمام له من الله فسعيه غير مقبول، وهو ضال متحير، والله شانئ لأعماله ـ إلى أن قال ـ وإن مات على هذه الحال مات ميتة كفر ونفاق، واعلم يا محمد، أن أئمة الجور وأتباعهم لمعزولون عن دين الله، قد ضلوا وأضلوا، فأعمالهم التي يعملونها كرماد اشتدت به الريح في يوم عاصف، لا يقدرون مما كسبوا على شيء، ذلك هو الضلال البعيد.
    1 – Muhammad b. Ya`qub from Muhammad b. Yahya from Muhammad b. al-Husayn from Safwan b. Yahya from al-`Ala b. Razin from Muhammad b. Muslim. He said: I heard Abu Ja`far عليه السلام saying: Everyone who professes (belief in) Allah عزوجل with worship in which he himself strives, but he has no Imam from Allah, then his effort is not accepted, and he is astray and confused, and Allah hates his acts – until he said: And if he died upon this state, he died a death of kufr and hypocrisy. And know, O Muhammad, that the imams of tyranny and their followers are expelled from the religion of Allah. They have gone astray and have led astray, so their acts which they performed are as ash that the wind disperses in a stormy day; no power have they over aught that they have earned. That is the far straying.
    [298] 2 ـ وعن علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه وعن عبدالله بن الصلت جميعا، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن حريز بن عبدالله، عن زرارة، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) ـ في حديث ـ قال: ذروة الأمر، وسنامه، ومفتاحه، وباب الأشياء، ورضى الرحمن، الطاعة للامام بعد معرفته، أما لو أن رجلا قام ليله، وصام نهاره، وتصدق بجميع ماله، وحج جميع دهره، ولم يعرف ولاية ولي الله فيواليه، ويكون جميع أعماله بدلالته إليه، ما كان له على الله حق في ثوابه، ولا كان من أهل الإيمان.
    ورواه البرقي في ( المحاسن ) عن عبدالله بن الصلت بالإسناد .
    2 – And from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father, and from `Abdullah b. as-Salt, all from Hammad b. `Isa from Hariz b. `Abdullah from Zurara from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said: The summit of the affair, its hump, its key, the gate of things, and the satisfaction of the Rahman, is the obedience to the Imam after his recognition. Were a man to rise up (in) his night, fast (in) his day, give charity by all of his property, do hajj all of his age, and he did not recognize the walaya of the Wali of Allah and give loyalty to him, and that all of his acts be by his guidance to him, he has no right upon Allah in regards to his reward, and he is not from the people of Iman.
    And al-Barqi narrated it in al-Mahasin from `Abdullah b. as-Salt by the isnad.
    [299] 3 ـ وعن عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد، عن محمد بن سليمان، عن أبيه، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) ـ في حديث ـ قال: من لم يأت الله عز وجل يوم القيامة بما أنتم عليه لم تقبل منه حسنة، ولم يتجاوز له عن سيئة.
    3 – And from a number of our companions from Sahl b. Ziyad from Muhammad b. Sulayman from his father from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said: One who does not come to Allah عزوجل on the Day of the Resurrection with what you (pl.) are upon, not a good deed is accepted from him, and not a bad deed is overlooked for him.
    [300] 4 ـ وعن علي بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن يونس ـ في حديث ـ قال أبو عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) لعباد بن كثير: إعلم أنه لا يتقبل الله منك شيئا حتى تقول قولأ عدلا.
    4 – And from `Ali b. Ibrahim from Muhammad b. `Isa b. `Ubayd from Yunus in a hadith wherein he said: Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام said to `Abbad b. Kathir: Know that Allah does not accept anything from you until you say a just saying (i.e. profess a just doctrine).
    [301] 5 ـ وعن محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، وعن عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد جميعا، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن هشام بن سالم، عن عبد الحميد بن أبي العلاء، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) ـ في حديث ـ قال: والله لو أن إبليس سجد لله بعد المعصية والتكبر عمر الدنيا ما نفعه ذلك، ولا قبله الله عز وجل، ما لم يسجد لآدم كما أمره الله عز وجل أن يسجد له، وكذلك هذه الأمة العاصية، المفتونة (1) بعد نبيها ( صلى الله عليه وآله )، وبعد تركهم الإمام الذي نصبه نبيهم ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) لهم، فلن يقبل الله لهم عملا، ولن يرفع لهم حسنة، حتى يأتوا الله من حيث أمرهم، ويتولوا الامام الذي أمروا بولايته، ويدخلوا من الباب الذي فتحه الله ورسوله لهم.
    5 – And from Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad, and from number of our companions from Sahl b. Ziyad, all from al-Hasan b. Mahbub from Hisham b. Salim from `Abd al-Hamid b. Abi ‘l-A`la from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said: By Allah, were Iblis to have prostrated to Allah after the sin and arrogance (for) the lifespan of the world that would not have benefited him, and Allah عزوجل would not have accepted him, so long as he had not prostrated to Adam as Allah عزوجل had commanded him to prostrate to him. And likewise is this rebellious Umma, in fitna (al-maftuna) after its Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله, and after their abandonment of the Imam whom their Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله had appointed for them. So Allah will never accept an act from them, and never raise up a good deed for them, until they come to Allah from whence He commanded them, and give loyalty to the Imam by whose walaya they were commanded, and enter from the gate that Allah and His Messenger opened for them.
    [302] 6 ـ وعنه، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن ابن محبوب، عن عمرو بن أبي المقدام، عن جابر، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) ـ فى حديث ـ قال: من لا يعرف الله، وما يعرف الإمام منا أهل البيت، فإنما يعرف ويعبد غير الله، هكذا والله ضلالا.
    6 – And from him from Ahmad b. Muhammad from Ibn Mahbub from `Amr b. Abi ‘l-Miqdam from Jabir from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said: One who does not recognize Allah, and does not recognize the Imam from us, the Ahl al-Bayt, then he has only recognized and worshiped other than Allah. Such, by Allah, is a straying.
