I am very proud to present the culmination of nearly ten years of research on the Twelfth Imam, al-Hujja b. a-Hasan, al-Mahdi, al-Qa'im, the Patron of Time, peace be upon him.

This is by far the most comprehensive English work on the subject.

It is a compilation of the most ancient and most reliable hadiths on the Mahdi from Twelver Shīʿī sources. Learn about the birth of the Twelfth Imam, his occultation, his ambassadors, his inevitable return, Islamic eschatology, and much more.

Paperback now available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1790653827

Respect brother @Qa'im

Hope you are fine إِنْ شَاء َ اللَّه 

Don't take it personal but I do not understand when knowledge gets sold/shared for money. 

Looking at the life of Mohammad(saww) o Aal(asws) e Mohammad(asws) I never see them doing so or any of their Believers(as) of those times.

I don't mean to offend you in anyway personally this post is in general as well.

Would this be similar to Qiyam al-Qa'im?

@Qa'im

Okay brother I understood that you are barely getting any money out of it, Thank you for clarifying.

Actually the reason why I openly spoke to you about this is because people like your work here alot and I wanted to hear it from you rather share this concern with you.

I will not disclose the name of that Scholar but I heard in a majlis that when one of shia scholars passed away and after some good time he came into the dream of his wife's brother he shared what happened with him and among what he shared I will share with you what is relevant to this concern of 'Islamic books and money'.

So he (the scholar) said that after his death he was asked as to what had he brought forward? He replied saying that he wrote many books on 'Deen' and 'Fiqh' for which he received the reply as 'Those books that you wrote you dedicated to the kings of those times so what have your brought forward'.

This goes to show that the work of books on Deen and Fiqh that he wrote was not accepted because of the fact that he dedicated those books to the Kings of those time which in a way can be linked to those who sell their Islamic works for money.

Having said that, I have already read that you have dedicated this book to the Queen of the entire Universe and beyond, Most Respected, Lady Syeda(asws). (Salawat).

And that you are barely getting any money from it.

May you be blessed for your efforts and I will hopefully pay the 'Hadiya' to get a hold of this book.

Request you to remember me in your prayers and Sorry if you felt offended dear brother. I did not mean to.

Wasalamu alayk.

Masha'Allah brother.

I will order insha'Allah.

I dont know why people are suprised that book have price?

Many go at concerts,cinemas,sport events and pay a lot of money,and,when it came to Ahlu-l-Bayt(s) all is expensive.

I talk for myself too.If i could find ticket for tonight Juventus game,there is no price that would i consider as expensive.

So,why not pay for book about Imam Mahdi(a.j.t.f)?

Wa Salam

Brother, it costs money to compile, publish  and ship a book. Besides is it haram that I want to spend my money on Islamic knowledge?

سلام brother @Qa'im

Today, I received a papercopy of your book. Thank you! 

Two quick notes:

1. The text at the bottom of the cover page is a bit blurry. 

2. Do you think it's necessary to have "AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.COM" at the top the cover page? Most people who get a papercopy, or even the Kindle Version, do so from Amazon. So they know it's available there. :)

Thanks again for your fantastic work!

Good point. I have it there in case someone sees you reading it, and want to get a copy of their own. It's also a way to prevent re-sellers from jacking up the prices and selling it elsewhere, etc.

I think most people know that if they want to get a book, they can do so at Amazon. 

Also, I think to prevent re-sellers, books put the price on the back coverpage and have an ISBN number. I'm not sure though.

Resellers will still shamelessly hike up the price of a book, sometimes double or triple (or even more) it's real value when it comes to niche subjects. I usually buy a book on Prime if I'm buying it new for this reason. I've seen this even with books the price of which is written on the back (or books where the publishers catalogue will list out how much they're selling it for).

I think Robert Hoyland's Seeing Islam as Others Saw It was going for over a thousand dollars on Amazon, its real value is something like 130 dollars. They can and will hike up the price no matter what you do, whether writing the price on the cover, having the publisher put the price on their catalogue, or putting a sticker on of its price. I think Br. Qa'im took a reasonable precaution here.

The book is on sale for the rest of December. 50% off, so it is $17.50 until January 1st 2019.

This is marvelous news. Thank you, Brother. Some people can now afford to buy two books and share one with someone else.

No offense, but this is exactly the attitude that is preventing knowledgeable and skilled brothers and sisters from developing products and works that serve the Shia community. So someone who is a lawyer, doctor, accountant should get paid for work that they do but someone who is doing work that is explaining and educating brothers and sisters about Ahl Al Bayt(a.s) should not get paid ? Please think before you post such comments. Please and thank you. 

Writing books takes alot of time, effort, and energy. This work will be compensated in the next life (IA) but it also needs to be compensated in this world, otherwise you will have very, very, very few who have the luxury of having enough extra time, effort, and energy where they don't need any compensation for this. This is the situation now and the reason why there are very few of these works available in the English Language that are well written and thoroughly researched. 

I am going to order a paperback copy, IA. I like reading religious books on the printed page.
