This is a thread that I found which I believe answers your question:

Another page on al-islam.org says:

" 12. Death: Imam Mahdi (a.j.) will die clean and pure. "

They were martyred. Show some respect, they didn't just die.

AND WHY THE HECK THAT PEOPLE ALWAYS OPEN THREADS WITH ALL CAPS LIKE A 10 YEARS OLD?

How word die/death is disrespectful? Its the ultimate truth.

Every soul will taste death [3:185]

Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful. [3:144]

Always?? Check all my threads. Only 3-4 are in All caps. And whats the problem in doing this? Main title/heading should be in all caps or in bold format. Its called art of using all avaiable options of editing. :sign_offtopic:

I am looking for narrations. They are not there in the links you mentioned.

Definitely, Imam Mahdi a.s will die clean and pure, no doubt about that. Point is that how this will happen? Via sword or via poison or something else and who will be his killer?

People know everything about Imams of previous time but unfortunately have little knowledge about Imam of their own time. I am trying to learn more about Imam Mahdi a.s, current Imam according to twelvers.

Those who even do not believe in the life of the 12th Imam in occultation want to know about his death. What a strange action it seems.

Its very important to know that. I have seen narrations regarding his occultation, his coming, his actions, his lineage, his virtues etc but not able to find out exactly how he will leave this world and what will happen after him etc.

Brother, everyone has to recognize Imam of his time, not Imams of previous times. Therefore my concern is on current Imam. I will not be asked about previous Imams. If that belief of imamate is true and correct then I will be asked and called on qiyamah by the name of current Imam.

In His name, the Almighty

salam dear brothers and sisters;

Fahad Sani posed a Q about Imam Mahdi's death but nobody answered appropriately. I think there is no problem to use the word "die" or "death" for Imam Mahdi or other Imams when their lives finished because it's as mentioned by brother Fahad Sani in the Holy Qur'an. the matter here is that how will his life finish? by natural death or martyrdom?

one of the brothers or sisters gave a link about this issue but I could not find any relevant and good answer for the Q. In that link " https://www.al-islam.org/muhammad-the-last-prophet-sayyid-akhtar-rizvi/imam-mahdi-aj" I just found this statement: 12. Death: Imam Mahdi (a.j.) will die clean and pure. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani died of epidemic cholera which is the dirtiest disease) which is meaningless and irrelevant. Here I am going to introduce to you a link that you can find your answer concerning the Q.

This is the link: http://www.islamportal.net/forum/who-will-kill-imam-mahdi-atfsh

Furthermore, there is a Q like this asked in the very site (shiachat.net) by one of the users previously on March 26, 2004 then was answered. you can also go to that link to get additional info about the Q.

http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/28264-answered-death-of-imam-mahdi/

good luck

@TAJODDIN

Thanks brother for your kind response.

Both these links do not mention any authentic report to confirm anything. The matter is very disputed one.

 

salam brother;

I agree with you. this subject is disputed one. The more important thing here is that what benefits do such these Qs have for us? what can we get from these Qs? Do you think that it is important how Imam of the Time will die? There are some Qs like this which are not important and useful to have knowledge about them. For example, has Imam Mahdi got married? if yes, how many children does he have? when does he live? where is his family and other Qs like these.  it is important to know that he is now alive and awaited and will reappear in the future and fill all the world with peace and tranquility and justice and we should perform our legislative duties and prepare the atmosphere and ground for his appearance.

God be with you.

مع السلامه

W.salam Brother,

Honestly speaking no one has got any benefit in the past and no one will get any benefit in the future from the awaited Mahdi, except those people who will meet him and support him when he will finally come.

For me atleast its very important question, because it will solve many other queries that I have in my mind. Like when he will die then who will lead his funeral, who will be the caliph/leader after him, how much time he will remain on earth etc.

I didn't know all the imams were killed ! .. why didn't Allah save them ? ... I mean Allah saved many of his prophats from being murdered by enemy of Allah , so why didn't Allah save the imams if they were appointed by him ? >> just question .

Yes, you are right such these Qs you mentioned are important. but these Qs are not like the Qs I posed. Imagine that you know that Imam has family and children, or you know that he will be killed, martyred or die, do they solve any problem?

I agree that it is very important for us to know that how many years will he remain and govern over the people of the world and do anyone else or other Imams come after him to continue his act and his government or not? These last Qs are key Qs because there many narrations about Raj'a of other infallible Imams after Imam of the time.

Jews used to murder 70 prophets at dawn. And continued their daily routine as if nothing happened. 

Many prophets were martyred.

Martyrdom is one of if not the greatest honour in the religion of Islam , so those who are beloved to Allah tend to leave the world either through martyrdom or some severe hardship , the imams being martyred was simply Allah swt will

The example is taken from the battle of Uhud. During the battle   Many Muslims were killed, and even Muhammad himself was badly injured. Why Allah swt did not stop the meccans / kufar from killing the Muslim and hurting the prophet? Does it mean that the prophet saww was not the chosen prophet of Allah swt?

The same our imams followed as per the will of Allah swt.

How did you link to the User's name like that?

Usually, you have to do it with the @ symbol in front of they screen name. Yet, you did it without that.
