InshAllah you're all in the best of heath and Iman.

I thought it would be a nice and beneficial idea to make a topic dedicated to the signs of the re-appearance of Imam Mehdi (ATF).

I don't know whether a topic similar to this exists, so I'm just starting one here.

The following signs I have copied and pasted from the 'Helpers of the Mahdi' website.

MashAllah, thre list is quite lengthy...

Traditions have been reported mentioning the signs for the time of the appearance of the Imam who will arise (qa'im), peace be on him, and the events which will take place before his appearance, together with the indications and features of it.

Among them are:

- The Sufyani will come out in revolt;

- The Hasanid will be killed;

- The Abbasids will dispute over worldly kingdom;

- There will be an eclipse of the sun in the middle of the month of Ramadan;

- There will be an eclipse of the moon at the end of that month in contrast to ordinary happenings;

- The land will be swallowed up at al-Bayda'; it will be swallowed in the east-it will be swallowed up in the west;

- The sun will stay still from the time of its decline to the middle of the time for the afternoon prayer;

- It will rise from the west;

- A pure soul (nafs zakiyya) will be killed in the outskirts of Kufa with seventy righteous men;

- A Hashimite will be slaughtered between the corner (of the Ka'ba) and the station of Abraham);

- The wall of the mosque of Kufa will be destroyed;

- Black standards will advance from Khurasan;

- Al-Yamani will come out in revolt;

- Al-Maghribi will appear in Egypt and take possession of it from Syria;

- The Turk will occupy the region of al-Jazira;

- The Byzantines will occupy Ramla;

- The star will appear in the east giving light just like the moon gives light;

- Then (the new moon) will bend until its two tips almost meet;

- A colour will appear in the sky and spread to its horizons;

- A fire will appear for a long time in the east remaining in the air for three or seven days;

- The Arabs will throw off the reins and take possession of their land, throwing out the foreign authority;

- The people of Egypt will kill their ruler and destroy Syria; and three standards will dispute over it (Syria);

- The standards of Qays and the Arabs will come among the people of Egypt;

- The standards of Kinda (will go) to Khurasan;

- Horses will come from the west until they are stabled in al-Hira;

- The black standards will advance towards them from the east; the Euphrates will flood so that the water comes into the alleys of Kufa;

- Sixty liars will come forward, all of them claiming prophethood, and twelve will come forward from the family of Abu Talib, all of them claiming the Imamate; a man of important rank of the supporters of the 'Abbasids will be burnt between Jalula' and Khaniqin;

- The bridge next to Karkh in the city of Baghdad will be established;

- A black wind will raise it at the beginning of the day and then an earthquake will occur so that much of it will be swallowed up;

- Fear will cover the people of Iraq and Baghdad; swift death (will occur) there and there will be a loss of property, lives and harvests;

- Locusts will appear at their usual times and at times not usual so that they attack agricultural land and crops and there will be little harvest for what the people planted;

- Two kinds of foreigners will dispute and much blood will be shed in their quarrel;

- Slaves will rebel against obedience to their masters and kill their masters (mawali);

- A group of heretics (ahl al-bida) will be transformed until they become monkeys and pigs;

- Slaves will conquer the land of their masters; a cry (will come) from the sky (in such a way) that all the people will hear it in their own languages;

- A face and a chest will appear in the sky before the people in the centre of the sun;

- The dead will arise from their graves so that they will return to the world and they will recognize one another and visit one another;

- that will come to an end with twenty-four continuous rainstorms and the land will be revived by them after being dead and it will recognize its blessings;

- After that every disease will be taken away from those of the Shia of the Mahdi, peace be on him, who believe in the truth;

at that time they will know of his appearance in Mecca and they will go to him to support him.

(These signs) are as the reports have mentioned. Among the total of these events are some which are bound (to happen) and other which are conditional. God knows best what will take place. We have only mentioned them on the basis of what is recounted in basic sources of tradition (usul) because of their inclusion in traditions which have been handed down. From God we seek help and Him do we ask for success.
