In the name of Allah

Hello everyone

Introduction

The report card of all the schools of thought through out the history reveals many weak points. The majority of them concentrated on one aspect, but ignored other important aspects of humanity. All these ideologies were "self-centered", meaning that they considered themselves as the central ideology and others (rest of mankind) as the surrounds, and most important of all, they had great claims; however, they made a poor performance.

In other words, they propagated goodness in theory, but were extremely weak in practice. After the middle ages, there has not been almost any improvement in humanity; Humans seem tired and bored of any materialistic ideology. The western conclusion about any materialistic ideology is that none of the schools of thoughts have fulfilled humanity needs; therefore it is not necessary to depend on any of ideology; there is no need for a new one. They believe that have been deceived enough, and a worldwide revolution could never happen. At this blind point, where people feel a gap, a great revolution will occur that will take over the whole world. Mahdi(as)will come, and will "change the humane condition".

The east and the west of the world are Mahdi's(as); although his message implies denial of east and west, it considers both hemispheres in terms of audience and covers the whole world. Mahdi's(as)mother was a Christian from Rome Empire, who was taken as a captive of war and chose Islam on her own. He is from two different races; so, Imam Mahdi's(as)arise is a global change for all humans, not specific to certain nationality or tribe. His mother, as well as mothers of some other Imams (PBUT), was not apparently from a high prestige family from social, economic, or political aspects. Therefore, the greatness of this movement is obvious since the wrong system of social leveling does not intervene this worldwide rising.

The humane characteristics of the community Mahdi(as) will establish

This article aims to cite, though briefly, some characteristics of the society which is going to be set up by Imam Mahdi(as). The government of Imam Mahdi(as)is a religion-worldwide government; however, it is not the government of stereotypes. In other words, it doesn't mean that it would be a world full of identical people who think and act in a similar fashion just like machines do; they will not have identical appearances or tastes. In fact, the relationships will be based on divine criteria, and all the people will recognize the rights and limitations while they are different. People will all be educated and learned persons who know their rights and responsibilities; they will be balanced, yet different. There will be no disputes since all the people will recognize the truth.

The definition of obedience in the society of Imam Mahdi(as)does not intend to disregard human intellect and replace human understanding and feelings with machines. This obedience within the leadership of Imam Mahdi(as)in the worldwide revolution guarantees the right of people and advances each individual's intellect.

The effort in his revolution is to fight for the "right of people", and the flag of this revolution is the flag of "justice". As stated in the Ahadith, the main act of Imam Mahdi(as)will be to give the people their physical and spiritual rights. Therefore, the main pledge in the society of Imam Mahdi(as)is "justice"; once the former society has been filled with injustice and crimes, it will be replaced with justice and the rights of the people will be given to them. His main goals and philosophies of his revolution consist of saving the people, executing human rights, removing racism...

His power will flourish upon the east and west of the world, and no land will be left outside of this empire. The question that can arise to this is:" Is this victory going to be the same as those victories that the Roman and Egyptian kings were seeking?"

Imam Ali(as)has answered this question as follows:" Mahdi will reappear to free all the slaves on earth". The idea that slavery has ended its course in today's world is a false analogy. Though at this time we do not see the old fashioned slavery in most part of the world, however, slavery is being practiced in a more modern state. Most of the people are slaves in the hands of masters who practice slavery in a modern fashion of buying and selling generations of people. Thus, it becomes clear as to why Imam Ali (as) said, "Mahdi will not leave any slave on earth without having freed him". By slavery, it is referred to all sorts of slavery such as economic slavery, political slavery, and other kinds of slavery.

Imam Mahdi(as)will not leave any debtor on earth without having paid his debt. He will not allow any oppression free without having paid back the oppressed. The future and rights of each single person is important to him.

The revolution and reform by Imam Mahdi(as)is so humane that he will not kill any innocent person, even if that person is in the opponent army. His revolution is a determined revolution in that it will not negotiate with any oppressor; however, it is a completely humane revolution; it is not a blind revolution that takes advantage of the individuals to achieve victory and power.

"Human", even a single individual, is important to him. The smallest right is significant for him. He explains that there is nothing more obligatory than executing justice, even if it is the smallest right for the most common person. The revolution of Imam Mahdi(as)is in fact the revolution of people, and it will be established by a pious and accomplished leader.

As he has to deal with two kinds of persons, he will present two different characteristics. His first characteristic is toward the most of the people of the world and especially to the poor. He will act so kindly and modestly towards them that it is as if he was feeding them with honey (exact words of a Hadith). Nonetheless, his second characteristic is toward the cruel of the world. He will just fight with them and does not forgive them anyway. They have been asked to repent from what they had done for thousands of years. Now, the age of recommendation and forgiveness is ended and it is the time to bring into action what all the prophets (PBUT) had promised.

According to the Ahadith, everything in Mahdi's(as)society will end to peace, friendliness, brotherliness, mercy, and unity. Mahdi(as)will fight, but for peace; that is because he knows that these wars won't end unless a war brings them to end. He will fight for peace accompanied by justice.

The slogan of Mahdi's(as)society is kindness. In his society, people help each other without playing any trick on each other. Wherever somebody commits a crime, no matter who he is, he will be punished instantly without any exceptions.

In his governorship, he will be very strict towards the operators of the worldwide Islamic government; however, he will be very patient with people, especially the poor. He will treat people in a very kindly and modestly manner. He will give every one his due and finally, he will bring all the goals of the prophets (PBUT) into action.

His revolution is not a single revolution; rather it consists of several revolutions in one. This revolution is an exception from all points of view throughout the history. It is not just a political revolution, but a vast cataclysm in all the material and spiritual aspects of the human's life. In this article, we will take a look at several aspects of this revolution:

Revolution in women rights, intellectual improvement, and scientific rights

He will choose 313 persons who will be the main operators of his government. According to the Ahadith, there are 50 women amongst them, who will perform in the highest level of global management. This clearly illustrates the role of women in this revolution.

In his society, women will be honored without loosing their chastity. Thus, we understand three great revolutions in the society of Mahdi(as), namely intellectual revolution, rights revolution (women rights) and scientific revolution.

Economic revolution

At that time (the reappearance era), an economic and technological revolution will take place; he will take over the whole world; all the superficial and underground resources will be available for the deprived people; the soils will become fertile; there would remain no ruined place on earth except that it would become habitable in Mahdi's(as)government. It will not be so that a small minority is full while the majority is hungry. The entire world will become habitable and every where is prosperous; the springs will be overflowed by water. At this time, there will be abundant favors for mankind, and they share them without any injustice and prodigality.

Revolution in the human relations

Another revolution will happen in the inter-relation of human beings. The sincere and friendly relations will improve to the extent that if a person needs something, he can use the other one's property without any struggle or dissatisfaction. At that time, everything will be for everyone. There is no conspiracy among the people and they consider each other as brothers since they all respect each other. Besides being great and bloody, his revolution brings brotherhood rather than revengefulness.

Revolution against discrimination

At that time, all the people live like each other; they will be all either full or hungry, whenever there is not enough supply, unanimously. According to the Ahadith, when Mahdi (as) comes, he will divide the properties among the people properly, or identically as the Hadith states. It will be so that no one would remain hungry on the entire earth. Even in our time, in the wealthiest countries (in spite of the fact that such wealth is brought about as a result of oppression and social leveling across the world) there are thousands of people who are deprived of primary facilities. In today's world, the exact meaning of social leveling and class distinction is demonstrated. Nevertheless, at that time convenience and wealth will be spread without any discrimination everywhere.

Social revolution

Whilst the human being will experience convenience, egoism and profiteering will no longer exist. In that society, all the people will help each other. Although the social aspects of the revolution are magnificent, they are realistic. Of course it is obvious that in today's world, providing such situation is impossible; nevertheless, this is the extreme of Islam's doctrine and it will definitely be practiced.

Security revolution

The other aspect of Mahdi's(as)revolution is for security. According to the Ahadith, in the government of Mahdi(as), a young girl (who likely is sensitive to harshness and aggression) can have a trip from on corner to another corner of the world lonely, while no danger threatens her. At that time, people will gradually forget the word "fear"!

Civil revolution

The entire world will be civilized by him; the whole societies will experience pleasure and joy. This joy will be humane, not gained by oppressing others or usurping others' rights.

Revolution against ignorance

A huge revolution will take place in understanding the religion, and knowing the religion will improve and ameliorate. According to the Ahadith, when he arises, some Muslims will oppose him and apply verses of the Holy Quran against him. Those are people who have neither understood the true religion nor helped it. They have not experienced any hardship for the religion, but made benefit of it. There is a Hadith implying that he will arise against both ignorance and innovations. He will fight against ignorance, teach people the pure religion as it was descended, and eliminate incorrect interpretations of the religion.

Cultural revolution

A great cultural revolution will occur by Imam Mahdi(as)too. As mentioned in some Ahadith, the ratio of all the sciences know by human to the sciences which Imam Mahdi(as) will discover is 2 to 27. This means that human, though having made such progresses, is not highly knowledgeable.

The characteristics of the companions of Mahdi(as)

At the end of this section, we will name some of the characteristics of Imam Mahdi's(as)companions extracted from the Ahadith:

In comparison with the 16th and 17th century, people tend to reach unity in today's world due to human and Islamic knowledge and communications. They have the readiness to say the same, recognize the same and react in the same manner. Perhaps these communications have led us to Globalization (established by Imam Mahdi(as)not by western countries).

His companions are 313 people from different races at first. They are the main staff of the global rising of Imam Mahdi(as). Then, according to the Ahadith, their number will increase to the extent that besides those 313 people who are the main executives, the operative staff will include

His companions are 313 people from different races at first. They are 10'000 people, and finally the rising will become worldwide. As the Ahadith state, most of Imam Mahdi's(as)companions are from the youth. His revolution is done by the youth, as changing the world could be done by them. In another Hadith, they are described as follows:

Their hearts are firm as iron; they fear nothing and will control the world rapidly and powerfully. They will pass a difficult examine, and the superiors of them are 313 people. Their reward is more than Prophet Muhammad's(as)companions; because they have never seen the Prophet(as), their situation is more complicated, and resistance is more difficult at that time; nonetheless, they remain in the right path. One important thing that needs to be considered is that organizing the world won't be simple; it requires patience and hard working. His companions will wear military uniform for a long time and eat little till they spread justice in the world. This era will be a beginning of difficulties for them, as it will be a beginning of comfort for others. It is basically a beginning of difficulties for Imam Mahdi's(as)companions in order to achieve global justice. They have to dress simply, be respectful, and live in the lowest level among people. The comfort and welfare gained in Imam Mahdi's(as)governorship does not belong only to the rulers, but to all the people. Imam Mahdi(as) will live simply during his governorship.

There will be no compliment between Mahdi(as) and other nations and he will do full justice to everyone. When he rises, he is not under oath of any corrupt ruler. It means that he is not responsible towards any previous government.

The content of the treaty between Mahdi's(as) and his companions

The last part of this article explains the content of a treaty between Mahdi(as) and his followers. This treaty will glorify the magnificence and divinity of Mahdi's(as)rising, while it also merges great decisiveness and humanity. It should be noted that these purports are extracted from authentic Ahadith of Shia:

Mahdi(as)will ask his followers to promise that they would not insult anyone, assault on anyone, or attack anyone's house without getting permission during the great revolution. Usually in revolutions and croups, assaulting and attacks are often done and no pity is accepted; however, Mahdi'(as)revolution is different from other manmade systems.

Moreover, he will have his followers promise not to gather gold and silver for themselves; he wants the governors of the religious revolution not to proliferate their properties.

He obliges them not to use the orphan's or the defenseless people's wealth. He notifies them not to abuse their power to use the defenseless wealth.

He demands them not to wear expensive clothes or the one that is different from the others. He orders them not to rule people the way kings do, and to fight for the sake of Allah (SWT) with their most power and in a manner that the Almighty Allah (SWT) is pleased. He wants them to live in difficulty so that the rest live in convenience. Consequently, the revolutionists will not corrupt after the revolution, and the revolution outcome will not be lost. This revolution will not be forgetful about the people. It will begin for people and continue for them as well.

Mahdi(as)also considers himself responsible for behaving as like as his followers promise.

He promises to use the same road, move the same way, and have the same clothing as they do. The morality principles for rulers are not different from those of other people. Overall, Mahdi(as)will be the same as his followers, and will promise what they promise. After the revolution, he will live in the worst conditions, and will content to the little. He will also promise that there would be no courts, barriers, or distance between him and the people; this means the lowest conditions for a worldwide leader. Also, this is a part of his promise that no distance will be made between people and rulers. His reappearance is the right of the human, thus man should be waiting for him, and try to pray for his appearance.

Great writing! It is the best summary I have read about how the Mahdi will create an Army to build a better world. Your 10 Revolutions is like a “Management Plan” or a “Plan of Action.” Good analysis! Many Muslims believe it is one revolution. I think it will be more than 10 revolutions. For example, a Work Revolution. Hundreds of millions of people cannot find work. He will deliver the Freedom to Work.

Where can I find more information about your 10 revolutions?

Thank You.

I read the article. It is wishful thinking, detached from reality. If you believe it has all the answers, then why don't you respond to the arguments in my thread?

I'll pose you some questions based off the article:

- How will the Mehdi deal with many people at once? Won't there have to be an insanely long queue?

- How will the Mehdi fight enemies all over the world with a mere 313 pious men? In fact, less than that because the number also comprises 50 women.

- How will the Mehdi remove social class and distinctions without eliminating the entire workforce? If no one will work, how will the world run?

- If replenishing wealth is distributed equally among everyone on the face of this earth, what use will it be if the majority are going to rely on the minority to provide sustenance and products? Would this not lead to enslavement of the minority, even oppression, something the Mehdi came to utterly dissolve?

- What does the article mean when it says the Mehdi has established globalisation, not "western countries." That doesn't make sense.

- How will the 313 pious, but fallible companions govern nations with different cultures and tongues? Will each companion be of a different ethnic background? If not, how is this going to work?

- How will the Mehdi and the 313 rid the world of absolute evil without enforcing a sort of big brother system? How will that work out in the real world?

- How will the Mehdi deal with peaceful opponents of differing ideologies, whom have their own ways of thinking and practice? Kill them? If not, how will the Mehdi establish an utopian Islamic government globally? Nothing will be different as such. Just as it is today, people will mandate a democracy and create their own body of laws, not necessarily in line with Islam.

If you can't answer these simple questions, you're simply burying your head in the sand.

Imam Mahdi won't even need the 313 people he has power of Amr of Allah (swt) entrusted with him to manifest Allah's authority on earth 313 is probably just to represent him in various places on earth.

The details of many people coming to Islam and faith is because it is known that he will kill Satan. Angels will drag him down to earth and he will kill him. So that is how a lot of world problems get solved because Satan is the cause of it. Another narration says prophet does it. Whoever does it, when Satan does, a lot of his deceptions will go away and world will be in justice and peace. Even in Bible both old and new testiment say of "Kingdom of God on earth as in heaven"

You need to read more and think less.

If you can't answer these simple questions, you're simply burying your head in the sand.

You said the questions are simple. You should be able to answer them. If you can’t… please THINK and READ… you gain KNOWLEDGE that way!

The article is a STRATEGIC article (giving a Strategic Plan). The author clearly says so! “This article aims to cite, though briefly, some characteristics of the society…” The article was NOT a TACTICAL article. You are asking TACTICAL questions about a STRATEGIC article. If the article were a TACTICAL article, it would be more than 1,000 pages.

You asked: “How will the Mehdi remove social class and distinctions without eliminating the entire workforce? If no one will work, how will the world run?” Did you read the article? It does not recommend eliminating the entire workforce. It does not recommend not working. It says just the opposite. “One important thing that needs to be considered is that organizing the world won't be simple; it requires patience and hard working.” Notice, it says: HARD WORKING. You are the one who connected social class to working or not working.

You asked: “How will the 313 pious, but fallible companions govern nations with different cultures and tongues?” You should be able to answer your own question. Easy answer > For example, a person gives a speech to the United Nations Assembly. Different cultures and tongues! Instant communication! (with human and computer translators). Today, there are hand held computer translators.

You asked: “How will the Mehdi deal with peaceful opponents of differing ideologies, whom have their own ways of thinking and practice?” You should be able to answer your own question. Easy answer > “Peaceful Opponents” (example: government politicians) “Differing ideologies” (example: Communist, Socialist, Republic, Democratic, Sharia governments). What do those governments have in common? Easy answer > Governments are corrupt. Most citizens believe their politicians (and their friends) are making themselves rich with government money (taxes, etc.). Solution > Establish Government Accountability to prevent corruption and theft. Managers and Accountants (CPA, etc.) could establish Government Accountability. Governments don’t want it because it will be difficult to steal from citizens. In the future, people (from different countries) will have something in common. They will demand honest government with detailed Government Accountability.

I don’t believe everything in the article. For example, “if a person needs something, he can use the other one's property without any struggle or dissatisfaction. At that time, everything will be for everyone.” This means there will be no private property rights.

I think the writer is a college student who wrote the article for an economics class or a religion class. It does not focus on violence. It is a very nice article.

Right... Every person of each nation will have to wear a headphone to listen to someone translate the words of the one who governs them. Does that really makes sense to you?

You asked: “How will the Mehdi deal with peaceful opponents of differing ideologies, whom have their own ways of thinking and practice?” You should be able to answer your own question.

Kudos on missing the point entirely.

A peaceful opponent or dissident could be an activist, politician or an average Joe. It doesn't make a difference. How will the Mehdi deal with such people? Kill them? Imprison them? But that can't happen, because the Mehdi will arrive with the original scriptures of the Jews and Christians. Clearly, it will be a pluralistic society, with differing rules and ideologies. So what will essentially change? In consideration of this fact, how will Mehdi establish a global Islamic government?

By the way, the fact that you believe every government is corrupt tells me you're uneducated.

You need to read more and think less.

Words to live by. "Think less." It sure is working out for you, isn't it, pal?
