I Must Have Proof For Imam Mehdi.

Wa salam Sister.

You need to be firm and exercise patience on the path of Ahlul Bayt (AS).

The long occultation of Imam Al-Hujjah (atfs) is to show you the Exaltation and Supremecy of Allah (SWT) as "The controller of all" and He always did what He wishes. We have no doubt of His Omnipotency and Magnanimosity.

I wonder why a Muslim can doubt the existence of Imam Al-Hujjah (atfs)? Is it that he saw it as something beyond Allah's Ability?

But to clear your doubt, here with me are numerous traditions even from Sunni books that authencicate the existence of Imam Al-Hujjah (AS).

1. Al-Bukhari

Abu Huraira narrates from Allah’s

Messenger (s.a.w.a.) – ‘ How will you be

when Isa Ibn Maryam (a.s.) descends

amongst you and your Imam (Mahdi a.s.) is

amongst you?’

Sahih al-Bukhari Book 60, tradition 119

2. Muslim

It is narrated on the authority of Abu

Huraira that the Messenger of Allah

(s.a.w.a.) observed: ‘What will be your state

when Isa Ibn Maryam (a.s.) descends

amongst you and there will be an Imam

(Mahdi a.s.) amongst you?’

Sahih Muslim Book 1, tradition 299

3. Abu Dawood

The author records the following traditions

in relation to Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.):

Abdullah Ibn Masood narrates: The Prophet

(s.a.w.a.) said: If only one day of this world

were to remain, Allah would prolong that

day ( according to the version of Za’idah ) till

He sends in it a man who belongs to me or

to my family…he will fill the earth with

equity and justice as it has been filled with

oppression and tyranny (according to the

version of Fitr). Sufyan’s version says : The

world will not pass away before the Arabs

are ruled by a man of my family whose

name will be the same as mine .

Abu Dawud asserts: The version of Umar and

Abu Bakr is the same as that of Sufyan.

The tradition is found to be Hasan (good)

and Sahih (authentic)

Sunan Abi Dawud,

Kitab al-Mahdi (a.s.)

38, tradition 4

4. Abu Isa Muhammad Ibn Isa al-


Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) narrates from the

Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) – ‘Even if a day

remains from the life of the earth Allah will

most certainly raise a person from my Ahle

Bait. ’

Sunan al-Tirmizi vol. 4 p. 505 tradition


Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) in the books of

Sunni scholars

Like the authors of Sihaah-e-Sittah, many

other Sunni scholars/historians have

recorded traditions related to Imam Mahdi


By way of example, we list some of the

‘He (Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.)) was

succeeded by his son Imam al-Muntazar

5. Arif Abd al-Wahhaab Sha’raani Hanafi

‘And he is from the sons of Imam Hasan

Askari (a.s.) and he was born on the eve of

mid-Shabaan in the year 255 A.H.; he

survives till date, he will be with Isa Ibn

Maryam (a.s.) and his age at this time is 958

years as informed by Shaikh Hasan al-

6. Shaikhal-Islam Sadr al-Deen


In the 31 chapter of his book he records a

tradition where the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has

listed the name of each successor and Imam

and in the end says – ‘and the 12 son

from my progeny will be in occultation till

the time Allah permits him to reappear…’

Faraaid al-Simtain vol. 2 p. 132

7. Shaikh Fareed al-Deen Attaar


After documenting each Imam (a.s.) he has

penned verses praising him. He has done

the same for Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) recalling

his occultation and beseeching Allah to

establish his just rule.

Mahdi (a.t.f.s.).

9. Ahmed Ibn Yusuf Abu al-Abbas

Kirmani Hanafi

‘MHMD al-Hujjah al-Khalaf al-Saleh and his

age at the time of his father’s demise

(martyrdom) was five years. Allah granted

him wisdom in infancy like He granted it to

Yahya in infancy…and the scholars are

unanimous that he is the Mahdi and will rise

in the last age…’

Akhbaar al-Duwal vol. 3 p. 535

10. Allamah Yusuf Ibn Yahya Ibn Ali Ibn

Abd al-Aziz Maqdasi al-Shafei al-Salmi

The author records a conversation between

Qataadah and Saeed Ibn Musayyab which

establishes that Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is

from the children of Fatima (s.a.).

Iqd al-Durar fi Akhbaar al-Muntazar wa

huwa al-Mahdi (a.s.) p. 23

In another tradition, he records a report of

the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) – Even if a day

remains from the life of this earth, Allah

will prolong the day so much that a member

of my progeny will rise.

Likewise, Umm Salmah (r.a.) has narrated –

I have heard the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) – Mahdi

is from my progeny.

Iqd al-Durar fi Akhbaar al-Muntazar wa

huwa al-Mahdi (a.s) p. 207

In yet another tradition, he records –

Haarith Ibn Mughairah says – Imam Husain

Ibn Ali (a.s.) – with what trait will we

recognize Mahdi? He (a.s.) replied – ‘ With

tranquility and dignity’ . Haarith asked: ‘And

with what else?’ Imam Husain (a.s.)

answered – With his knowledge of the

permissible and the prohibited and the

pressing need of the people for him and his

being needless of them .’

Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.):
