The Mahdi will come as a sign that Hour is getting closer. We have also been told that he will be from the Family of the Prophet (saw) as he will be related to Fatima. I have heard that he will be here for about 7-8 years. Now Is that 7-8 years that he will rule or 7-8 years of his entire life? Will he be born on Earth or will he just appear as a grown man? Have we been told any of this?

  • Yes we have been told a lot about al-Mahdi. Have a look here: islam.stackexchange.com/questions/4290/… – Noor Apr 17 '16 at 21:21
  • since, this is correctly mentioned 1 year or 7 years. It leads us to think whether he will be of just 7 years of age. Which, by the way leads us to think, he was there already and then went to occultation. Now after occultation, he will come for few years. Hence, we can say he is in Occultation. But where? in this world or heaven? It is also mentioned that this world will not come to end until all 12 caliphs of Prophet leave this world. Hence, it would be appropriate to say he is in this world and is in Occultation. – Tahir Hussain Mir May 31 '16 at 8:54
