  1. Ya Ali Madad, Ya Imam Mahdi Madad Re: www.thebohras.com I came across above website on Bohras and their association with our Ithna Asheri's and others. If someone has already analysed it then please let me know the weblink for it. Thanks
  2. Please provide reference of book which says Imam Mahdi will reappear and there after will die after few years as the last person on Earth. If possible advise your referred book was written pre or post demise of Imam Hasan Askari? If latter, then there is no attestation by Masoomeen to prove authentication of your quoted Hadith. If it is former, then confirm which Imam has vetted the authenticity of that Hadith of yours? Thanks
  3. Dear Mohib-e-Ahlaybait, Lets see what inferences can we draw from your post quoted above: 1. As time marches ahead, so, Imam Hussain a.s. succeeding Imam Mahdi and occupying the post of caliphate negates the core tenant of ours: Imam Mahdi will be the last caliph. 2. According to you Imam Hussain will succeed Imam Mahdi, then who will succeed Imam Hussain after his demise? Imam Hasan was the first Imam so why is he not following the demise of Imam Mahdi? 3. When all 11 Imams have succeeded Imam Mahdi then who will be the last in the series: Imam Hasan Askari? Again Mahdi have to be the
  4. In previous posts someone said, Imam Hussain a.s. will succeed Imam Mahdi. In next post, you said about Eesa - I took your post as extension to previous post about Hussain a.s. succeeding Mahdi. Do you know who will succeed Imam Mahdi after his death? As earth cannot be without Imam so that successor effectively become the nunber 13th occupant of seat of Imamat! Imamat is ending with Mahdi then why new or next Imam is required? Mohammad s.a.w.w. is the last Prophet and after him no Prophet will come so Eesa's coming near Qayamat is not arrival of next Prophet, so count of 124,000 is not effe
  5. Thanks for replying. Prophet Eesa even after becoming successor of Imam Mahdi remains Prophet besides being 13th caliph. So count of Prophets don't get altered!!! But count of 12 becoming 13 caliphs - how do we tally and justify it with our original dogma of 12 caliph hadith?
  6. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Please advise: When Imamat will end with Imam Mahdi then Imam Hussain becoming the 13th occupant negates Mahdi being the last Imam? What will happen when Imam Hussain dies? Will Ali Zain ul Abideen a.s. succeed him? Then he become the 14th occupant - but our dogma is 12th Imam is end. End = no one will succeed Imam Mahdi. Can you or others share more information or bullet points about "noor"? What exactly it is and how it transfer from one to another Imam? Thanks
  7. Hello Knowledgeable members Please answer the queries inquired in last post. Thanks.
  8. Thanks all for sharing your ideas and knowledge. I understood from all above posts that after re-appearance of Imam Mahdi and on his death: the human race will not vanish and humans will be there on Earth even after death of Imam Mahdi. Some members said, Imam Hussain a.s. will rule after Imam Mahdi"s death, some members said all twelve Imams will rule after Mahdi. Question is in either of above case: the next occupant of Imamat seat becomes the number thirteenth occupant of seat of caliph or Imam!!! This is against the core tenant of ours that there will be only twelve number of occupancy of
  9. Dear friends, brothers and sisters, My query is very simple, please help: Q1) When Imam Mahdi appears the human race will come to end and no human being will be left on Earth? Q2) If answer to above is "no", then some day Imam Mahdi will die, then as Earth cannot be without "Imam" so will there be next Imam i.e. 13th Imam (the son of Imam Mahdi)? If possible quote reference / books for your answers. Thanks for your kind help.
  10. Knowledgeable members please answer the query: Imam Mahdi appearance = Qayamat will come. Does this mean world (earth) life ends? If not, then will Imam Mahdi die someday after his appearance at time of Qayamat and will he be succeeded by his son as 13th Imam? Kindly answer with reference to authentic books. Thanks
  11. (1) Was Al Mufid 'masoom'? No. Was his work vouched by Imam Mahdi (Imam of his time)? No. Is he subject to all human errors, bias, etc? Yes. So to rely on Al Mufid as the primary source to prove "Nuss-a-Jali" by Imam Hasan Askari to Imam Mahdi is in itself a weak premise. (2) With whom I am discussing the issue of Imamat she says, "There are two types of 'Nuss': (1) Nuss a Khafi and (2) Nuss a Jali, former is secretly/privately said and latter is publicly declared. Example) Every time Prophet Mohammed s.a.w.w. declared Mola Ali a.s. as his successor before the event of Gadheer-a-Khum it was
  12. Brother Mesbah, None of your two link above tells: If Imam Hasan Askari in presence of his missionaries / trusted people, also with physical presence of his son Mohammed declared that after him his this son Mohammed will be next Imam. Until the existing authority will not categorically and physically point out who his Imamate successor is until then how the common Shia's can know about the successor. A guess can never take place of facts. Facts is only what existing Imam declares whether in big public gathering or small missionaries gathering. Declaration of successor is of paramount imp
  13. Sunnat = Do as Prophet does. Mohammad s.a.w.w. publicly declared Ali as his successor. So does Ali to Hasan, and likewise Hasan to Hussain, Hussain to...... These are not 'qayas', but are facts documented by everyone in all sects for all past years. Unless the current authority will not declare his successor how will next person will become authority? Does any of our literature says that even privately (with time, place and witness details) the successor declaration was made by Imam Hasan Askari?
  14. Which books says that same logic cannot be applied in the time of taqqiyyah and reasoning for same? Or is to your personal thinking? Thanks
  15. Prophet Mohammed s.a.w.w. have several times before the episode of Gadeer Khum have privately declared Ali as his successor. Allah asked Prophet Mohammad s.a.w.w. to publicly declare that Mola Ali is his successor but Prophet expressed concerns, over it, then Allah said, "Should you not publicly declare this then it is akin to you have done nothing as Prophet! Then on 18th Zilhij 10-hijri Prophet s.a.w.w. on ground of Gadeer Khum announced Mola Ali as his successor. We learn from above that 'public declaration' is the must to become the successor. Can any knowledgable member let me kno
