(Iqdud Durar, p. 98, Ghaybat Nomani, p. 397, Al-Ghayba li Sheikh al-Tusi, p. 267, Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 211)

182. HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL BE BORN AT HOME

Imam Zayn-ul Abidin said: "Our Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will resemble the messengers of Allah in various ways.  He will individually resemble Nuh (as), Ibrahim (as), Musa (as), ‘Isa (as), Ayyup (as) and Muhammad (saas) and the other prophets. HE WILL RESEMBLE Nuh (as) in being long-lived, IBRAHIM (AS) IN HIS BIRTH BEING CONCEALED (AT HOME) and away from the public eye, Musa (as) in his state of fear (in the intensity of the threats he faces; facing the threats of being killed, plots, arrest, detention and exile), and in his living apart (in constant concealment), ‘Isa (as) in people constantly disputing over him (in some people saying, ‘Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come’ and other saying, he will not.’), Ayyup (as) in maturing after being rescued from a great trouble  (Hazrat Mahdi (as) will suffer many difficulties, sicknesses and troubles, but, like the Prophet Ayyup (as), he will be freed from them by Allah’s mercy) and Muhammad (saas) in his appearing with a sword (Hazrat Mahdi (as) will carry the sacred relics of our Prophet (saas), his holy standard, sword and robe)." (Kamal’ud-Din p. 322, chapter 31. hadith 3)






183. THE ''RAINING DOWN OF STONES AND THE LIKE'' DESCRIBED IN THE HADITH IS TAKING PLACE WITH BOMBINGS TARGETING MANY PLACES IN THE WORLD

From Aysha: «AT THE END OF THIS COMMUNITY, there will be collapse AND A CHANGE IN APPEARANCE AND STONES WILL RAIN DOWN...» (Muhammad Ibn 'Abd Al-Rasul Al-Barzanji, Portents of Doomsday, p. 111)

According to what is narrated from Ali Ibn Abu Talib and Abu Huraira, the Messenger of Allah (saas) said:

«... EXPECT TO SEE CATASTROPHES OF EARTHQUAKES AND COLLAPSE,  people’s appearances turning into those of apes or pigs, AND STONES AND THE LIKE RAINING DOWN FROM THE SKY!» (Tirmidhi) (Muhammad Ibn 'Abd Al-Rasul Al-Barzanji, Portents of Doomsday, p. 114)

184. SOME PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE DESCENDED FROM APES BY WAY OF EVOLUTION WILL ASSUME THE APPEARANCE OF APES AND PIGS

“I swear that SOME PEOPLE FROM MY COMMUNITY... WILL TURN INTO APES AND SWINE (PIGS).” (Ramuz al-Ahadith, Hadith no: 5711)

185. PEOPLE'S APPEARANCES WILL BE IMPAIRED AND UGLY IN THE END TIMES

From Aysha: «AT THE END OF THIS COMMUNITY, it will collapse AND CHANGE APPEARANCE and stones will rain down...» (Muhammad Ibn Rasul Al Hussein Al Barzanji, Portents of Doomsday, p. 111)

In the End Times there will be collapse and stones will rain down AND PEOPLE WILL NO LONGER LOOK HUMAN. (Sahl Ibn Saad, Ramuz Al Ahadith, Vol. 2, p. 302/8)

186. OUR PROPHET (SAAS) GAVE US THE NEWS THAT IN THE END TIMES THERE WILL BE OPPRESSION IN PALESTINE

Na’im narrated from Ka’ab:
Dajjal BESIEGES THE BELIEVERS at “Bayt al-Maqdis” (the place close to the Dome of the Rock, the Palestine) AND SUCH A SEVERE HUNGER IS INFLICTED ON THEM (THE BELIEVERS) that they will be obliged to eat beams of the archs. (Hadith classified by Jallaladdin As-Suyuti, The Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, p.48)

187. ONE SIGN OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS THAT HE WILL BE SINGLE

Mas'udi narrates: "When Ali Ibn Hazma, Ibn-i Siraj and Ibn-i Abi Said came into the presence of Imam Riza on one occasion Ali Ibn Hazma asked the imam: "O son of Rasulullah, we have related from you (the imams od the ahl al-bayt) that; EVERY IMAM WILL SEE HIS CHILD BEFORE HE DIES (Is this true?) The imam replied: "Have you added this to the account? APART FROM THE QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)]?” (Isbat-al Wasiya (Mas'udi), p. 201)

187.    HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL STRUGGLE AGAINST THE HYPOCRITES, WHO WILL OCCUPY THE VERY LOWEST LEVEL OF THE FLAMES

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will depart from them for a time, and thus people of deviance will be separated. So that the ignorant will say: There is no need for the Family of Muhammad [one from the line of our Prophet (saas)] in order to reach Allah.”(Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Nomani, al-Ghaybah al-Nomani, p. 161)


188.    TECHNOLOGICAL SIGNS FOR THE END OF TIMES

CLOUD SEEDING

“He would then give command to the sky and there would be rainfall upon the earth ...” (Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 7015)

INCREASE IN MILK PRODUCTION

“He would come to the people and invite them (to a wrong religion) and they would affirm their faith in him and respond to him. He would then give command to the sky and there would be rainfall upon the earth and it would grow crops. Then in the evening, their posturing animals would come to them with their humps very high and their udders full of milk and their flanks stretched.” (Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 7015)

THE TREASURE DETECTOR

“He would then walk through the waste land and say to it: Bring forth your treasures, and the treasures would come out…” (Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 7015; reported by an-Nawwas ibn Sam'an)

TRAWL NETS

One of his (Dajjal’s) astonishing deeds is this: He will enter the sea three times a day; one of his arms is long. With his long arm he will lean on the bottom of the sea, and with his other hand he will sweep up and catch what he wishes from among the fishes in the deeps... (Reported by Abu Nuaym [ra]). (Signs of Qiyamah, 10th edition, p. 216)

GREATER LIFE EXPECTANCY

Life expectancy will increase in his (the Mahdi’s) time. This increased life expectancy also means that he (the Mahdi) will be long-lived. (p. 184)
In his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] time ... life spans will grow longer. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi'alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 43)
Life spans will grow longer...(Al-Suyuti, Portents of Doomsday, Death and Resurrection, p. 1699, p. 179)

THE DISCOVERY OF SOLAR COOKERS

He will catch a bird flying in the air and roast it under the Sun… (Signs of Qiyamah,  8th edition,  translated by Naim Erdoğan, Pamuk Publishing, p. 216.)

CLOUDS OF SMOKE

The Dajjal will say, "I am the Lord of the worlds... It is by my leave that this Sun follows its course, if you wish, I can halt its progress!” They will respond by asking him to halt it. At this he will imprison the Sun, and will make a day resemble a month and a week a year. (Reported from Nu’aym ibn Hammad and Hakim ibn Mas'ud (ra)) (Signs of Qiyamah, 10th edition, p. 219, 220)
