First of all, I ought to appreciate the response of @Muhammad Abdullah as a relatively nice answer. In truth, he termed some characteristics and signs regarding Imam Mahdi and reappearance which could be helpful for you in order to identify the real Mahdi (A.J.). There are some or even several characteristics which together give us certainty concerning ...
It doesn't mean what you mentioned, because the word 'كُلُّ رَايَةٍ' 'Each Flag' doesn't mean the governments but it means each person who claim that he is 'The Qaim' and some people follows him, while he is a liar and he's not the real 'The Qaim’...
So this Hadith tells that those people 'the liars' are tyrants and they are defying Allah, and people who ...
No, what you said isn't true, this narration is not related to the establishment of a government, but rather is meant a call or uprising.
Invite has two types:
Call to the void and non-religious purposes which is related to self (nafs) and is doomed.
Call to remove void and for right purposes which is approved by Imams.
In this narrative, that flags have ...
According to a narration from Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Nomani, al-Ghaybah al-Nomani p. 189:
The owner of this task [The Hazrat Mahdi] will have a resemblance to
Yusuf (as).And I said: It is as if you are telling us of a
disappearance or astonishment. He said: The brothers of YUSUF were
clever and intelligent. They were children of a prophet. ...
A man is saying that he is Isa and there is no mehandi he lives In India, Aurangabaad.
'Isa Alayhi Salam will arrive after Dajjal and as you can see from the real world, Dajjal has not emerged so that means Prophet 'Isa is not here on earth yet. Furthermore, 'Isa will descend in Damascus, not in India. This is sufficient for you to know that he is not 'Isa.
Imam Mahdi is the last of the minor signs and the beginning of the major sign. So he's like a hint for the start of the major signs. There are many signs that will precede him, a general and very important sign is that he will come at a time when there is great confutation, intense disputes and violent deaths. When people are afflicted by disturbance and ...
I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: Migration will not end until
repentance ends, and repentance will not end until the sun rises in
Sunan Abi Dawud 2479
Grade : Sahih (Al-Albani)
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who repents before the sun rises from
the west, Allah will forgive him".
Some have argued lately that ...
My question: How someone can know and be sure that he is the
representative of the imam Mahdi ?
Wali Faqih has some required term that are set by Ahl al Bayt and specially Imam Mahdi (a.s.) before start of his occultation. So the required terms are known. And the Wali Faqih himself does not select himself. It is said that Imam Mahdi a.s. selects the best ...
According to the Sunni view (I am not aware of the Shia view), Imam Mahdi will come in a time of great distress. He will lead the Muslims until the appearance of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) who will lead an army of Muslims to kill the dajjal (anti-Christ). Jesus will then rule over the Muslims until he dies of a natural death. Several major signs of the ...
In order to presenting a brief answer, I can say that according to the narration(s), that quoted from Mofzal, he mentioned: I asked Imam Sadiq (a.s.) about the place of appearance of Hadhrat Mahdi. So according to the answer of Imam Sadiq (a.s.) it indicates that the place of the appearance of Imam Zaman (Hadhrat Mahdi) is from Mecca. And in another part of ...
With respect to the meaning of Hujjah, it could be said that the word 'Hujjah' would be applied to the thing (matter) which we can infer or argue to it (as a brief description). (Read More... but source not in English)
The word "hujjah" has been used in different occasions in the holy Qur'an at verses like 4:165 and 8:149.
But in context to Shia Imams,
Imam al-Mahdi will be a righteous man from among the descendants of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), who will appear at the end of time, through whom Allah will set the affairs of the mankind straight, and will fill the earth with fairness and justice just as it was filled with wrongdoing and oppression.
The arrival of Mahdi has 2 different stories in Islam: Sunni Islam, and Shia Islam.
According to sunni Islam, Ali bin abi Talib narrates: the prophet peace be upon him narrates
المهدي منا أهل البيت، يصلحه الله في ليلة
roughly translates (my translation) into
Mahdi is from our descendants (Ahlu l Bayt), Allah guides him during a night
Your question is a very good one, as in how will Mahdi prevail (and basically what attributes should he have to know if he is the true Mahdi)
So God has sent 124000 prophets and all died, killed, poisoned. And he wants to show to everyone that eventually:
And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders ...
Why are you assuming that end of times will be in the present era ... so that the USA, drones and media will be relevant factors? A few centuries back it was the British armed with Gunpowder, more centuries back it was the Mongols and their horses, many more centuries back it was the Roman and Persian Empires armed with swords and arrows. When Muslims ...
Al-Mahdi in Sunni Ahadith Collections
Many of the Sunan Collections have a whole chapter about a deliverer:
In Sunan Abi Dawod (for example1, 2, 3 which is Naming him al-Mahdi, 4 which is describing him) it is quoted that their will be a deliverer from Ahl Al-Bayt (Peace be upon them) with different grades of authenticity.
Just as an Indication for the ...
It's the same for both Sunni & Shia. It's the same religion. On one side you have Wahhabies (in their different forms), they love Sahaba but they don't appreciate A'al Albayt, they even deny (or hide the proof of) their high status.
On the other hand, there are Shia who love Ahlul-bayt but they're misinformed about some of the Sahaba and hate them ...
There are many related issues regarding this matter, but apparently it has not mentioned what precisely their names are. But according to the traditions (hadiths), these individuals are similar to the 313 persons who were so gladiator and brave in Badr (بدر) war. On the whole, they have several specific characteristics such as:
As he is not only the Imam of the Shia's of Ahlul Baith but the Imam of the universe so any person who has some respect and love for the holy household of the Prophet may join his army if Imam wills.
The person maybe off any religion and caste.
Briefly speaking, it consists of 3 groups (respectively):
The first group: 313 persons as the main soldiers (perhaps as
The second group: 10.000 persons
The third (last group): General Shias and lovers of him who accept
him after the reappearance... (who seem to be from different
countries and even various religions (and Allah knows best)
