Part 2:
Characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the Hadiths
(16/20)

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) No Blood will be Spilled, the Morality of Islam will Dominate the Entire World By Means of Scientific Works

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Not Spill Blood

People will seek refuge in Hazrat Mahdi (as) as honeybees cluster around their sovereign. HE WILL FILL THE WORLD THAT WAS ONCE FULL OF CRUELTY WITH JUSTICE. HIS JUSTICE WILL BE AS SUCH THAT HE WILL NOT WAKE A SLEEPING PERSON OR EVEN SHED ONE DROP OF BLOOD. THE EARTH WILL RETURN TO THE AGE OF BLISS. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 29)

Hazrat Mahdi (as will follow the way of the Prophet (saas). He will not wake up a sleeping person or SHED BLOOD. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

In the time of [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] no one will be woken up from their sleep OR HAVE A BLEEDING NOSE. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 44)

Those swearing allegiance to him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will swear allegiance between Rock and Pillar (around Ka'bah). They never wake a sleeping person, NEVER SHED BLOOD. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 24)

LIKE THE CUP FILLS WITH WATER, SO WILL EARTH FILL WITH PEACE. There will be no enmity left between any people. All hostility, fighting, and envy will surely disappear. (Sahih Muslim, 1/136)

... In the same way that Almighty Allah began Islam with us, so He will bring it to an end with him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. In the same way that they were freed from polytheism and enmity and their hearts were filled with friendship and love through me, so it will be again with the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 20)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Weapons Are Faith and Love

Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers will defeat the irreligious mindset, meaning its system of ideas, with the Qur'an, science, reason, knowledge and faith. Victory will arise in belief and ideas and, insha'Allah, superstitious thinking, perversion and Darwinist, materialist and atheist thinking will all vanish.

Narrated from Hazrat Amr ibn Awf (ra):
The Day of Judgment will not come until Constantinople of the Rome is captured by Muslims with tasbih (praising of Allah) and takbir (proclamation of the greatness of Allah). (Ramuz al-Ahadith, p. 478)

In a hadith narrated by Imam Muslim from Abu Hurairah, our Prophet (saas) one day addressed the companions thus:
… When these strugglers come and settle in that land they will not wage war with weapons, and they will not fire arrows. They will recite the takbir by saying La ilaha illallahu akbar. At this takbir, one of the ramparts on either side of the city will fall. Then they will recite a second takbir. Subsequently, the other side of the city will fall. They will then recite a third takbir. At this, breaches will open up in the ramparts and the army of Islam will enter and capture the city. (Ash-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 445-446)

Muslims will not fight when they come to this city. The sea side of the city will fall when they recite the takbir, and the other side will fall when they recite the takbir again, when they recite the takbir for the 3rd time, the whole city will be captured. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p.30)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers will capture Istanbul and a great many cities of the world by remembering Allah in a moral, intellectual and cultural way, and morally eradicate Darwinism and materialism. In this verse of the Qur'an, Almighty Allah points out intellectual eradication:

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Cause Islamic Moral Values To Prevail Through His Intellectual Activities

As revealed in the hadiths, in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), nobody's nose will bleed, nobody will get harmed and even a sleeping person will not be awaken. This also shows that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will wage an intellectual struggle. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will intellectually silence movements and systems incompatible with the moral values of the religion, and will establish the global dominion of Islam with his scholarly activities.

In the time of [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] no one will be woken up from his sleep or have a bleeding nose. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 42)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) … will walk in peace. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 173)

[Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will follow the way of the Prophet (saas). HE WILL NOT wake up a sleeping person or shed blood. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Spiritually Conquer the World

Abu Bashir says: When I asked Imam Jaffar Sadik:"O son of the Messenger of Allah (saas)! Who is the Qaim of your Ahl al-Bayt?" he replied: ... HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL (SPIRITUALLY) CONQUER THE WORLD, the Prophet Jesus (as) son of Mary will pray behind him. AT THAT TIME THE WORLD WILL BE ILLUMINATED BY THE LIGHT OF ALLAH, AND EVERYWHERE IN WHICH AND EVERYWHERE IN WHICH BEINGS OTHER THAN ALLAH ARE WORSHIPPED WILL BECOME PLACES WHERE ALLAH IS WORSHIPED; AND EVEN IF THE POLYTHEISTS DO NOT WISH IT, THE ONLY FAITH ON THAT DAY WILL BE THE RELIGION OF ALLAH." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 146)

The Prophet (saas) said to Hazrat Ali (ra): "YOU ARE THE FIRST, AND THE LAST IS HAZRAT MAHDI (AS), UPON WHOM ALLAH WILL BESTOW THE (SPIRITUAL) CONQUEST OF THE ENTIRE WORLD." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 378)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL (SPIRITUALLY) CONQUER THE EAST AND WEST OF THE WORLD AND BRING ISLAM (Islamic moral values) TO RULE ACROSS THE WORLD… Almighty Allah will give people such a power that everyone will hear his voice from where they are, and HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL GIVE LIFE TO ISLAM(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 279 and Vol. 53, p. 12; Sheikh al-Saduq, Kamal al-Din, Vol. 2, p. 367)

"Those who act in haste will be destroyed, those who say his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] coming is imminent will be saved, and this is rooted like the ramparts of a tower. A GREAT (SPIRITUAL) CONQUEST WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER SORROW." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 229)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) and His Followers will Cause the Moral Values of Islam To Rule the Entire World

Banu Amin narrates about the verse, from Muhammad al-Bakr: "THESE ARE THE FRIENDS OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WHO WILL [SPIRITUALLY] CONQUER THE EAST AND THE WEST IN THE END TIMES." (The Mahdi in the Qur'an According to Shiite Commentators, Ansariyan Press, Iran, p. 75, August 2008)

Miqdad Ibn al-Aswad says: heard the Messenger of Allah (saas) say, "There will be nowhere that the religion of Islam has not entered, not a house made out of mud or a tent (in the desert)." (Abu Ali Fadal ibn Hassan ibn al-Fadl al-Tabarsi, Majma' al-Bayan fee Tafsir al-Qur'an, from the commentary on verse 33 of Surat at-Tawba)

When Hazrat Mahdi (as) Causes the Moral Values of the Religion To Rule There will be Nobody Left To Deny That Our Prophet (saas) Is the Last Prophet

Another hadith narrated from Imam Bakr reads: THIS VICTORY AND SUPERIORITY WILL TAKE PLACE WHEN HAZRAT MAHDI (AS), FROM THE FAMILY OF MUHAMMAD (SAAS), APPEARS. SUCH THAT THERE WILL BE NONE LEFT TO DENY [THE PROPHETHOOD OF] THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAAS)." (Tafseer al-Burhan, vol. 2, p. 121)

Hazrat Mahdi (As)'S "Yellow-White Flags On Which Is Written the Name of Allah" will Fly All Over the World

It is narrated that: "Certain it is that in the End Times one known as Hazrat Mahdi (as) will emerge from the furthest part of the country of Magrib (West). And help will go 40 miles before him. HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS) FLAGS ARE WHITE AND YELLOW. THE GREAT NAME OF ALLAH IS WRITTEN UPON THEM. No union under his banner will be defeated. (Ash-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 438)

We are told in the hadith that one of the characteristics that will identify Hazrat Mahdi (as) to people is that he will use "yellow-white flags." In addition, it is told that "there will be lines on these flags and the name of Allah will be written upon them."

It appears from the description in the hadith that these features refer to the books by which Hazrat Mahdi (as) communicates the moral values of Islam. These books will consist of white pages, with yellow/gold decoration, and there will be a text inside them, and borders of the edges of the pages will contain illustrations and diagrams. And the name of Almighty Allah will be written all over the books, which describe in detail the Greatness and Mightiness of Allah. In addition these books, likened to "flags" in the hadith, will be everywhere that Hazrat Mahdi (as) conquers in spritual, cultural and intellectual terms, everywhere he demolishes atheism, as literally the signs of the flags of an army, of his conquering everywhere they go.

The words in the hadith "no unit under his flag will be defeated" mean that these works of Hazrat Mahdi's (as) will have an impregnable impact everywhere they reach and will thus be instrumental in Islamic moral values ruling the world.

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Works of Faith-Related Issues will be Instrumental in People Attaining Salvation in the End Times

Ali ibn Abu Talib says: "The Prophet (saas) said to me in a long will: "O Ali! The most astonishing ones among the people in terms of faith and the greatest people in terms of certitude are those who will come in the End Times. They have never seen the Prophet (saas) and the Imam [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is hidden from them. THEY HAVE FAITH BY MEANS OF BLACK LETTERS EMBROIDERED ONTO WHITE PAGES (WRITTEN DOCUMENTS)." (Man La Yahzuruhu 'l-Faqih, Vol. 1, p. 269)

We are told that in the End Times books will be printed with black letters on white pages and that the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will read these books prepared under his leadership. As it is known, Hazrat Mahdi's (as) followers will not be certain that he is Hazrat Mahdi (as), but they will hold positive thoughts about him because of the portents that can be seen.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Prove Allah's Existence, Creation, the Universe, the Qur'an and the End Times Using Very Strong Evidence and None will Have Any Counter-Evidence To Offer

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will tell people the existence of Allah, proofs of the universe and Creation with verses from the Qur'an. He will explain and prove the events occurring in the End Times and none will have any counter-evidence to offer.

Sheikh al-Tusi's Kitab al-Ghayba : "The dominion (authority) of Hazrat Mahdi (as) lies within the proofs about all that Allah has created; these are so numerous that his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] proofs will overcome (will be influential, will be dominant) everyone and nobody will have any counter-propositions against him." (Kitab al-Ghaybat, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, Collected by: Muhammad Baqir al-Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 70)

In His Intellectual Struggle Against Darwinism and Materialism, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Show People the Proofs of Creation, and will Point To the Verses of the Qur'an and Trustworthy Hadiths Handed Down From Our Prophet (saas) As Evidence in His Lectures

The Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will later appear among you with the truths; He will bring you the truths and act with evidence;... (Selected Supplications from al-Sahifah al-Mahdiyah, Sayyid Murtadha Mujtahidi Sistani, p. 65, Al-Bihar 51: 131)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Prove the Fact of Creation To People By Means of Fossils

SKELETON BONES, MORE THAN A THOUSAND YEARS OLD, WILL CONVERSE WITH HAZRAT MAHDI (AS). (Mikyaal al-Makaarem, Vol. 1, pp. 223-224)

The piece of information provided by the hadith indicates that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will deal with fossils, that he will prove the fact of Creation by means of fossils. He will abolish disbelief and deviance; irreligious, materialist and Darwinist system by means of these old fossils.

It is clearly understood that while proving the invalidity of materialism and Darwinism, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will benefit from bones older than a thousand years, that is, fossils dating back to millions of years. The hadith indicates that, literally by the language of their state, fossils will give the message, "Hujjat Mahdi (as), we are a proof from Allah; you can communicate people by showing us as proofs that we have not evolved, but remained the same, unchanged since the first Creation," and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will explain this fact to people by means of photographs, essays, books, video films and documents in which unearthed fossils are used.

Another name of Hazrat Mahdi (as) is "the one who brings proof" that is "Hujjat". Hujjat Mahdi (as) will speak with hujjat (proof). Allah will grant this opportunity to him and each one of the bones of living beings will become a proof (hujjat) for Hazrat Mahdi (as).

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will employ each one of these fossils against the atheist, materialist and Darwinists of that time, as irrefutable, absolute proof (hujjat) and thus will defeat Darwinists and completely abolish irreligious materialist system.

Bediuzzaman Said Nursi also mentioned in his works that the first duty of Hazrat Mahdi (as) is to demolish the "materialist and naturalist plague", in other words the idea of materialism and Darwinism based on the denial of Allah and make it completely ineffective:

And he [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will have three major duties; First: Under the effect of science and philosophy, and the contagious plague known as materialism and naturalism, and its SPREAD AMONG PEOPLE, HE WILL FIRST OF ALL SAVE THE FAITH IN SUCH A WAY AS TO SILENCE PHILOSOPHY AND MATERIALSIM… (Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, Emirdag Addendum, p. 259)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in the Whole World Attaining Salvation

Hazrat Mahdi (as) WILL TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH A TORCH OF SALVATION AND WILL LIVE LIKE THE CHASTE. (Al-Mahdi al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, pp. 281-282 and 266 and 300)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL COME AFTER LOVE OF ALLAH BECOMES LOVE OF LOWER SELVES, AND HE WILL TURN LOVE OF LOWER SELVES INTO LOVE OF ALLAH; HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL COME AFTER THE QUR'AN HAS BEEN FORCED TO MATCH OPINIONS AND IDEAS, AND WILL FORCE OPINIONS AND IDEAS TO MATCH THE QUR'AN.... (Nahj al-Balaghah, Fayz al-Islam edition, pp. 424, 425)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in People Living the Moral Values of the Qur'an in the Most Perfect Manner

Imam Muhammad Bakr (as) has said: WHEN our Qaim [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] APPEARS he will rub his hands on the heads of servants and will concentrate their disparate ideas in one place. He will direct them toward an objective AND WILL LEAD THEM TO THAT STATE OF MORAL PERFECTION WHICH IS APPROVED OF. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 336)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Illuminate the Whole World Like the Sun, and will be Instrumental in All "Grief and Oppression" Coming To An End

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS THE SUN WHO WILL DO AWAY WITH ALL GRIEF AND OPPRESSION. When he bestows goodness he is fertile rain. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 188)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in People Living By "True and Deep Love"

Hz. Ali b. Ebi Talib states: "When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, HE WILL ROOT OUT ALL THE CAUSES OF ENMITY AND DISPUTE IN PEOPLE'S HEARTS. The result will be general security and public order." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 336)

Abu Said relates that the Prophet (saas) said: In the End Times, my community will suffer tribulations from their rulers. Such a scourge that the like will never have been seen before. So much so that the world will be like a prison and full of oppression. BELIEVERS WILL BE UNABLE TO FIND A REFUGE AND A SAVIOR TO ESCAPE THIS OPPRESSION... (Al-Bayan, p. 72, Al-Sawaiq Al-Muhariqa, p. 161, Yanabee'-al-Mawadda, Vol. 2, p. 177)

Hear the glad tidings of Hazrat Mahdi (as)…THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH AND SKIES WILL BE PLEASED WITH HIM… (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 13)

THUS IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH AND SKY BE PLEASED WITH HIM, SO THE BIRDS IN THE AIR... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p.26)

HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS)] RULE WILL HAVE THE APPROVAL OF THE PEOPLES OF EARTH AND SKY, ALL WILD ANIMALS, BIRDS, AND EVEN THE FISH IN THE SEA. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 31)

People will seek refuge in Hazrat Mahdi (as) AS HONEY BEES CLUSTER AROUND THEIR SOVEREIGN. He will fill the world that was once full of cruelty, with justice. His justice will be as such that he will not wake a sleeping person or even shed one drop of blood. The earth will return to the age of happiness. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 29)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in People Having Faith and A Profound Fear of Allah

Abu'l Hijaf narrates that three times the Prophet (saas) said... HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL INSTILL SERVITUDE TO ALLAH IN THE HEARTS OF SERVANTS. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 74)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Show People the True Path of the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Our Prophet (saas)

From Nahj al-Balaghah: The lord of believers (saas) said: "They followed the wrong paths and went to the right and left, abandoning their guiding traditions...O people, this is the time when all promises will come true, when THE COMING OF ONE UNKNOWN TO YOU [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS CLOSE AT HAND. Note that he who has emerged from among you [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL OVERTAKE THEM WITH A BRIGHT LIGHT IN THESE MOST DIFFICULT TIMES... (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 186)

In this hadith narrated from our Prophet (saas) it is revealed that with the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as), people will be enlightened by a radiance and reason stemming from the Qur'an, and that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will show people Allah's true path, the beauties of the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saas).

(Our Prophet's (saas) reference to "A BRIGHT LIGHT" is also suggestive of the TELEVISION AND COMPUTER SCREEN that Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers will use.)

Allah will Make Hazrat Mahdi (as) His Instrument To Prepare Perfect Books That Influence His Time and the Entire World

Abu Bashir says: It is narrated from Imam Muhammad Bakr or Imam Jaffar Sadik that: "HE WHO GIVES HIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IMAMATE WILL GIVE HIM KNOWLEDGE AND BOOKS AND WILL NOT LEAVE HIM ALONE." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 387)

It transpires from the hadith that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be constantly under the control of Almighty Allah, and that Allah will make Hazrat Mahdi (as) His instrument in preparing perfect books that will influence his time and the entire world.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in Everywhere Becoming Places in Which Allah Is Worshipped

Abu Bashir says: When I asked Imam Jaffar Sadik, "O son of the Messenger of Allah! Who is the Qaim of the Ahl al-Bayt?" he replied: ... Hazrat Mahdi (as) will (spiritually) conquer the world and Jesus (as), son of Mary, will pray behind him. THEN THE WORLD WILL BE ILLUMINATED WITH THE LIGHT OF ALLAH, AND EVERYWHERE IN WHICH OTHERS THAN ALLAH ARE WORSHIPPED WILL BECOME PLACES IN WHICH ALLAH IS WORSHIPPED; EVEN IF THE POLYHTEISTS ARE UNWILLING, ON THAT DAY THE ONLY FAITH WILL BE THE FAITH OF ALLAH" (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 146)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Understand and Explain the Qur'an and the Hadiths Very Well

Iqmal ud Din: Narrated from Muhammad Ibn Sinan, Amir Ibn Shamir, Jabir and Abu Jaffir: "THE KNOWLEDGE OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH'S BOOK AND THE SUNNAH OF HIS MESSENGER (SAAS) GROW AND FLOURISH LIKE A PLANT IN OUR MAHDI'S HEART." (Kitab al-Ghaybat, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, collected by: Muhammad Baqr al-Majlis, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 72)

It appears from our Prophet's (saas) hadith that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will understand and explain the Qur'an and the hadiths very well.

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) the Morality of Islam will be Restored to Its True Form, All Religious Schools will be Removed

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) the Morality of Islam will be Restored to Its True Form, All Religious Schools will be Removed

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL DO EVERYTHING THAT THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SAAS) DID; HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL DEMOLISH PREVIOUS FOUNDATIONS IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SAAS) TORE DOWN THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE SYSTEM OF IGNORANCE, and he will restore Islam again from the beginning. (Mikyaal al-Makaarem, Vol. 1, p. 57)

When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears he will intellectually vanquish all those atheist systems of the time that are built on denial, just as our Prophet (saas) did, and he will show people the invalidity of these systems' infrastructure, teachings, philosophies, superstitions and beliefs. Following that, he will be instrumental in people living by the original essence of Islam – purged of all subsequent innovations and unrealistic practices – again as in the time of our Prophet (saas).

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Disclose True Islamic Moral Values

According to the hadiths, when Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears he will eliminate all the superstitious beliefs and practices that have entered Islam subsequently.

As revealed in the words, "... he will treat people with the Sunnah of the Prophet (saas)…," meaning he will follow the path of our Prophet (saas) and be instrumental in people truly living by the moral values of the religion, as in his time.

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will sustain Islam in the end just as our Prophet (saas) sustained Islam in the beginning… (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 27)

... Hazrat Mahdi (as) will practice the religion to exactly as it was in the time of the Prophet (saas). He will remove the religious schools from the world. No school will be left apart from the true, pure religion. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, 186-187)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will leave no subsequent innovation of religion. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 43)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will leave no subsequent innovation of religion uneradicated. He will fully discharge the obligations of the religion in the End Times, in exactly the same way as our Prophet (saas)." (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 163)

Innovation of religion (Bidah): Superstituos traditions that are incorporated into the religion even though they are not in the true essence of religion.

When Hazrat Mahdi (as) Appears, All the Sects will Swear Allegiance to Him, Because Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the Greatest Guide of the Islamic World.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the greatest guide, saint and pole of the End Times. He is also the guide of Imam Rabbani, Abdulqadir Gaylani, all Sunni scholars and of the imams of all schools and of all sects. Therefore, Hazrat Mahdi (as) is also the guide of Mahmud Hodja Effendi. In one sermon, Cubbeli Ahmad prays to Allah, beseeching Him for the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). He begs Allah to be able to see Hazrat Mahdi (as).

This means that when Hazrat Mahdi (as) comes, both Mahmud Hodja and Cubbeli Ahmad and all the other sects and their members will follow Hazrat Mahdi (as) and accept his succession (spiritual leadership). There will be no community that rejects this oath of allegiance or maintains any other position when Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears.

Since Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the greatest guide, saint and pole of the End Times, all the sects will coalesce around him when he appears. Aware of this, and with our entrance into the End Times, many leaders of schools have abandoned the custom, which they had maintained for hundreds of years previously, of handing down the sacred trust of the succession (spiritual leadership) to the next person in line. For example, Ali Haydar Effendi relinquished his succession (spiritual leadership) to Hazrat Mahdi (as). Mahmud Hodja Effendi is currently Ali Haydar Efendi's deputy. As of Hijri 1400, the time of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as), all the schools have begun awaiting his coming and natural guide.

 

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Not be Influenced By Anyone, By Any Idea Or Any Sect

… Don't you know that except the Qaim (Hazrat Mahdi (as)) behind whom the Prophet Jesus (as), son of Mary will perform the prayer, all of us from the Ahl al-Bayt will have the oath of allegiance to that time's taghoot [every entity, power, demon that do not recognize the domination of Allah] on them [irreligion will prevail during the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), almost everyone will fall under this system]? Almighty Allah will conceal his appearance and hide his person. THUS WHEN HE APPEARS NOBODY'S OATH OF ALLEGIANCE WILL LIE ON HIM... (Sheikh al-Saduq, Kamal al-Din, Vol.1, p. 305)

Hasan ibn Munzir narrates from Zurara that Imam Jaffar Sadik stated: "I swear that your owner [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will eventually appear AND WILL HAVE NOBODY'S OATH OF ALLEGIANCE ON HIM. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 402)

Ibrahim ibn Omar Yamani says: Imam Abu Abdullah stated: "When the Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] comes, HE WILL APPEAR WITH NO-ONE'S OATH OF ALLEGIANCE ON HIM." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 218-219)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Not be Tied to Any Sect, and All Schools will Swear Allegiance to Him When He Comes

Our Prophet (saas) has related in the hadith that Hazrat Mahdi's (as) birth will be secret, in other words, he will be born in his own home. In addition, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will live for a long time in his home, far from people's eyes, and will not go out among them. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not be a member of any sect, in other words, he will have no ties to the Nakhshibendi, Qadiriyyah or any other sect. On the contrary, all sects will be tied to him and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be above all sects. Our Prophet (saas) has also revealed that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be long-lived, and he will still look younger than 40 when he appears although he will be older.

From Abu Sa'id: Hasan ibn Ali (as) ... said: "... ALMIGHTY ALLAH WILL CONCEAL HIS BIRTH AND HIS PERSON. IN THAT WAY, NOBODY'S OATH OF ALLEGIANCE WILL BE ON HIM WHEN HE APPEARS... ALLAH WILL PROLONG HIS LIFE DURING HIS OCCULTATION, AND THEN HE WILL BRING HIM INTO THE OPEN, THROUGH HIS OWN MIGHT, LOOKING YOUNGER THAN 40 YEARS OF AGE and this is so all will know that Allah has power over all." (Sheikh al-Saduq, Kamal al-Din, Vol. 1, p. 315)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be Instrumental in People Attaining Moral Perfection and Sincerity

People's understanding will be perfected by the blessing of Imam Mahdi (as) and their morals will achieve unity. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 328 and 336)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] hearts will be filled with needlessness and self-sufficiency. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 337; Iqdud Durar, p. 169; Musnad)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] pomp and show will come to an end, and trustworthiness will become customary. (Iqdud Durar, p. 159)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] the elderly will be helpful and affectionate toward the young, and the young will respect the old. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 385)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] lie and slander will dissappear. (Misbaah al-Zaaer, p. 217-219)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] Real friendship will exist and will be to such an extent that one believer will take the wealth of another without his permission, with the latter being unmindful of it. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 372)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Distance Islam From Irreligious Currents and Innovations, and will Call On People to Have Faith

The Messenger of Allah (saas) says; "THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE JUST FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT FOR MY COMMUNITY. THEY WILL KEEP THE CORRUPTIONS OF THE DISTORTERS, THE SUPERSTITIONS OF THE SUPERSTITIOUS AND THE INTERPRETATIONS OF THE IGNORANT AWAY FROM THE RELIGION; hear the truth that your imams are the messengers who will lead you to Allah, and so look and see who your messengers are." (Sawaiq al-Muhriqa, Ibn Hajar, p. 148, Muhammadiyya mat. and p. 90, Maymaniya mat. Misir. / Yanabee'-al-Mawadda, al-Qunduzi al-Hanafi, pp. 226, 326, 327, Haydariye mat. pp. 191, 271, 273 and 297, Istanbul. / Dhahir al Uqba, Muhibbiddin Tabari Shafii, p. 17)

In the hadith, our Prophet (saas) reveals that every century there will someone who will rule with justice among the sayyid. These people will strive against whichever superstitious tendency dominates their own century, and they will call on people to live by religious moral values. They will wage an intellectual struggle against whichever superstitious religion (materialism, atheism, idolatry, Darwinism) influences society at that time or even against them all together. It is Hazrat Mahdi (as) who will wage this struggle and call people to the true path in Hijri 1400s. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will intellectually destroy the idols of Darwinism and materialism and will also rid the religion off all superstitious elements that bigots have included in it, thus enabling people to live the religion as it was in the time of our Prophet (saas). Master Said Nursi describes this intellectual struggle of Hazrat Mahdi (as) as follows:

First; under the influence of science and philosophy, and the spread of materialism, DARWINISM AND ATHEISM EPIDEMIC SPREADING INTO HUMANITY, THE FIRST DUTY OF THE HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS FIRST OF ALL TO SAVE FAITH SO AS TO ENTIRELY SILENCE PHILOSOHPY AND MATERIALIST THINKING. …." (Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, Emirdag Addendum, p. 259)

The first duty of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be to wage an intellectual struggle against materialism and Darwinism and to intellectually neutralize these two atheist trends, thus being instrumental in people coming to a concrete belief in Allah.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Purge the Subsequent Innovations in Islam and Guide People to Live By the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Our Prophet (saas)

WHEN PEOPLE INTERPRET THE QUR'AN ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN LOWER SELVES, HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL CORRECTLY TURN THEIR THOUGHTS TO THE QUR'AN AND PLACE THEM UNDER THE SERVICE OF THE TRUTHS OF THE QUR'AN. AFTER THAT HE WILL SHOW YOU HOW THE BOOK AND THE SUNNAH HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN AND REVEAL THEIR LIVE MEANINGS. (Nahj al-Balaghah, Sermon 134)

In the End Times, when Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, some people will interpret the Qur'an according to their own lower selves and interests, and will seek to turn people toward these interpretations. But Hazrat Mahdi (as) will reveal the true meanings of the verses of the Qur'an. In this time, when people have spiritually turned away from the verses of the Qur'an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas), he will expound the true meanings of the verses.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Apply the Sunnah of Our Prophet (Saas), Rid Islam Off Superstition Added to It Subsequently and Restore the Faith to Its True Form As in the Time of Our Prophet (Saas)

Abdullah ibn Ata says: I asked Imam Abu Jaffar Bakr: "SPEAK TO US OF THE QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)]..." HE SAID: HE WILL FOLLOW THE PATH OF THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SAAS); HE WILL ELIMINATE PREVIOUS THINGS AND COME WITH NEW THINGS." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 216)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Enable People to Think and Act On All Matters According to the Qur'an; That Is, He will Encourage Them to Behave in the Best, Most Accurate, Consistent and Rational Manner

Imam Muhammad Bakr (as) said: "WHEN OUR QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] APPEARS HE WILL RUB HIS HAND ON THE HEADS OF THE SERVANTS AND CONCENTRATE THEIR DISPARATE IDEAS IN ONE PLACE. HE WILL TURN THEM TOWARD ONE OBJECTIVE and will lead their moral values to perfection." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 336)

Hazrat Imam Baqr (as) says: "When our Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] appears, HE WILL RUB HIS MERCIFUL HAND ON THE HEADS OF THE SERVANTS OF ALLAH AND WILL FOCUS THEIR ATTENTION AND PERFECT THEIR REASON." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 328)
