Yasaar reports that he heard from Yasham and Maria that when the child

(Imam Mahdi ATF) was born he got up and sat down; recited kalma e

shahadatain; sneezed and recited Al Hamdo Lillahi Rabbil Aalameen.

It is reported from Nasar – servant – that two or three days after the

birth of (Imam Mahdi ATF) I went to the court of Imam (ATF). I saw him

lying in the cradle. I said him (ATF) salam. He said: “Nasar! Bring red

sandal for me”. When I brought red sandal he said to me: “do you

recognize me?” I said, “why not? You are our lord and the son of lord”.

He said: “you have not recognized me. I am the seal of testamentary

executors (awsiya), and Allah The Sublime will remove all calamities from

my family and my friends because of me”.

“Ulama say that Allah The Sublime bestowed Imam Qa’im Muntazir (ATF)

with wisdom and Faslul Khitab, and made him (ATF) a sign for the worlds

as Allah says, “O Yahya (John) take the Book with power and We granted

Yahya (John) the prophet hood in childhood”. And Allah says (about

Christ AS) “How we speak to a child who is in cradle”. And Allah The

Sublime has prolonged his life as He prolonged of (Hazrat) Khizar’s (AS)

and (Hazrat) Ilyas’ (AS). Some Arifeen i.e. Sheikh Mohiuddin Al Arabi

wrote in the discussion of Imam Al Mahdi (ATF) that when he will appear

there will be 360 Kamilul Iman men with him who will take oath of imam

(ATF) allegiance in between Rukan and Muqam. And the most blessed

people will be the people of Kufa and he will distribute the wealth with

justice. He will do justice in the people and decide disputes with haq, and

will appear on the finishing of religion. He who will refuse his imamate will

be killed and he who will fight against him will be disgraced. He will show

the true religion. If Holy prophet (SAWW) was there he would give same

decision as Imam (Mahdi ATF) will give. And those fuqaha who would be

followed will be his (ATF) enemies but will come under Imam due to fear

of his sword and his grace as well as greed of worldly riches. And those

kamileen arifeen who are aware of the realities of things because of Kashf

and Shahood, will take oath of his (ATF) allegiance due to Divine granted

Ma’arifat. Imam (ATF) will have some special men who will be his helper

and will maintain Dawat ilal Haq. Same men will be Imam (ATF) ministers

who will have taken the responsibility of government. Imam Al Muntazar

is (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) Aal-e-Muhammad (SAWW). His generosity will

be on the pattern of heavy rain. He will be the true caliph of Allah. He will

understand the language of animals. His justice will proceed in Jin and Ins

both.” (Yanabi ul Mawaddah, Pg: 325, reference: Faslul Khitab)

“Wa howa Baaq ila an yajtamay bay Isa ibnay Maryam (AS) fayakoon

umrohu ila waqtena haza sab’a me’ah wa salas saneen – He (Imam

Mahdi ATF) is present thus he (ATF) will gather with (Hazrat) Christ (AS),

the son of Maryam (AS). His age in our period (958 hijri) is 703 years.”

(Tarikhul Ahmadi, Pg: 368, taken from Shaykh Abdul Wahab Ash-Shu’arafi

in his book Al Yawaqeet wal Jawahir)

Ali Bin Abdullah reports from Abdur Rahman bin Abi Abdillah and he

reports from Abi Jarood that (Hazrat) Imam Muhammad Baqir (AS) said

the rule of Qa’im e Aal e Muhammad (ATF) will be on entire earth and his

rule will be for 309 years – the period Ashab e Kahaf remained in sleep,

and will conquer the whole earth with his sword, and no faith will remain

in existence except the faith of (Hazrat) Muhammad (SAWW).

40 Ahadith of Ulma e Ahle Sunnah

Hafiz Abu Naem and Ahmed bin Abdullah who are from great scholars of

Ahle Sunnah, their collected forty ahadith about (Hazrat) Mahdi Hadi

(ATF) which are in books Fasoolul Mohimmah and Kashful Ghummah etc.

I have taken these 40 from the book Anwar e Imamat writer Faqih e

Mohaqiq e Rabbani Danishmand e Bozurg Ahmed bin Muhammad known

as Moqaddas Ardbeli (q.s.).

First Hadith

Abu saeed khudri has reported from Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad

(saww) that He said Mahdi (ATF) will be from my ummah and he will rule

for seven, eight or nine years even if a short period would remain. In His

period evil will be nowhere; rains will be at time and there will be

abundance of grain.

2nd Hadith

With the authority of above mentioned (Abu Saeed Khudri) Holy Prophet

(saww) said that the world will be filled with oppression and tyranny and

then a person from my progeny will appear and will fill the earth with

justice and equity and will rule on the earth for 1 year or 9 years.

3rd Hadith

With the authority of above mentioned (Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A)) the

leader of the two worlds (SAWW) said the day of judgment would not take

place until a man from my progeny will fill the earth, which will have been

filled with oppression and tyranny, with justice and equity. The period of

His rule (will be) 7 years.

4th Hadith

Zohri reported from (Hazrat) Ali yibnil Hussain (Imam Zain ul Abideen

(AS)) that the Prophet of Allah (SAWW) said to Hazrat Fatima (SA) Mahdi

(ATF) would be your son (Al Mahdi min woldik).

5th Hadith

Ali Bin Hilal has reported from his father that I was in the court of the

prophet of Allah (SAWW) at the time of his passing away (from this

world). I saw that the daughter of the prophet of Allah (SAWW), (Hazrat)

Fatimah (SA), sitting at the head of the bed of her father was weeping

loudly. The prophet of Allah (SAWW), raising his head said O’ my beloved

daughter why are you weeping? (Hazrat) Fatimah (SA) said I am weeping

over my destruction after you that people will forget you and will carry out

oppression on me. The prophet of Allah (SAWW) said O’ Fatimah (SA)

don’t you know that Allah The Sublime cast a look on earth first time and

chose your father (SAWW) for prophet hood. Then cast a look and chose

your husband (ALI A.S.) and revealed that I marry him (ALI A.S.) with

you. O’ Fatimah (SA) we are Ahle Bayt (AS). Allah has granted us those

qualities, which have not been granted to anyone before us nor would be

after us i.e.

First quality is that I was made The Seal of Prophet hood. I am the best

of all Creatures and your father.

Second quality is that my wasi (testamentary executor) is the best of

Awsiya (testamentary executors), friend of the creator and creatures and

he is your husband (ALI A.S.)

Third quality is that our martyr is from amongst the best martyrs and he

is (hazrat) Hamza Bin Abdul Muttalib (AS) who is the paternal uncle of

your father (SAWW) and your husband (AS). (hazrat Hamza bin Abdul

Muttalib (AS) was martyred in the battle of Ohad and Hindda the wife of

Abu sufyan, mother of Moawia and grand mother of Yazeed (May the

curse of Allah be upon them ).

Fourth quality is that he (Hazrat Jafar e Tayyar who kissed martyrdom in

the battle of Mota) is from us to whom Allah has given two wings through

which he is busy in flying with angels (In Heavens). He is the son of my

paternal uncle (Hazrat Abu Talib (AS)) and the brother of your husband

(Ali AS). (Ali (AS) had three brothers: Talib (AS), Jafar (AS) and Aqeel

(AS). Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) sent Aqeel’s son Hazrat Muslim (AS) as

his envoy to Kufa and he kissed the martyrdom there and his shrine

attached with Masjid e Kufa is resort of all. In the same shrine Hazrat

Mukhtar Bin Abi Ubaidah saqafi (RA) is buried).

Fifth quality is the two grandsons who both your sons (Hassan (AS) and

Hussain (AS)) are The Lord of The Youth of Paradise------- O’ Fatimah

O’ the sight of my eyes! By that God who sent me as a prophet that

(hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) of this ummah will be from these two (Hassan (AS)

and Hussain (AS)) when the world will be filled with fitnaas; one will be

looting to other; elder will not show mercy upon younger; younger will not

respect elder. At that time Allah will send him (Mahdi (ATF)) who will

demolish the palace of zalalah and will firm the law of hidayah in the last

period as I (Muhammad (SAWW)) did in the last period by arriving. O’

Fatimah (SA) don’t be grieved that Allah The Great is most

compassionate and most merciful upon me and you because of that

nearness which you have with me. And O’ Fatimah (SA) Allah has married

you with (the one) who is mightiest in pedigree, most merciful upon

people, wisest in Ahkam e Din (Holy Prophet (SAWW) said Ana Darul

Hikmah wa Aliyun Baboha), and the most just in decisions (Holy Prophet

(SAWW) said Aqzakum Aliyibne Abi Talib (AS)). And O’ Fatimah (SA) the

sight of father’s eyes I have requested from my Allah that you be the first

from amongst all who join me from my Ahle Bayt (AS). Therefore (hazrat)

Fatimah (SA) went to the lap of her father (SAWW) after the 75 days of

prophet (SAWW) death.

6th Hadith

(Hazrat) Huzaifah (RA) himself reported that one day the Prophet of Allah

(SAWW) said while throwing light on future in front of us that if there

would be one day remaining of this world Allah will make it longest and

will appear my one son who will have the same name of mine. Listening

this Hazrat salman farsi (RA, He was that companion of Holy Prophet

(SAWW) about whom He (SAWW) said Salman minna Ahlalbayt (AS)) said

after standing up O Prophet of Allah (SAWW) who will be your that son.

The Prophet of Allah (SAWW) said “Min waladi haza” and put His hand on

the shoulder of Imam Hussain (AS).

7th Hadith

(Hazrat) Huzaifah (RA) reported from (Hazrat) Ibne Umer (RA, Ibne Umer

accepted Islam in his childhood with Hazrat Umer bin Khattab (RA) in

Mecca. His mother was Zainab binte mazoon and he refused to take the

oath of allegiance to Hazrat Ali (AS). Likewise it is written in Beharul

Anwaar, Volume 44, which summary is that Ibne Umer requested Imam

Hussain (AS) at his time of departure from Medina to compromise

mislead people. Imam (AS) said O Abu abdur Rehman have fear of Allah

and do not avoid to assist me – Page 7 Tazkera e Mukhtar (RA) written

by Syeda Bintul Huda, publisher Mukhtar Students Organization (MSO)

Pakistan) that Prophet of Allah (SAWW) said that (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF)

will appear from a town. The name of the town will be “Kar’a”.

8th Hadith

It is reported from (Hazrat) Huzaifah (RA) that Prophet of Allah (SAWW)

said (Hazrat) Mahdi Ma’ood (ATF) will be from my sons (when the

infidels of Quraish were used to say Holy Prophet (SAWW) “Abtar” then

Allah Almighty revealed Surah Kauser: Inna Ataina Kal Kauser we have

granted you Progeny with abundance, and then Holy Prophet’s (SAWW)

Progeny grew from Hazrat Fatimah Tuz Zahra (SA). Hazrat Imam Hassan

(AS) and Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) were Holy Prophet’s (SAWW) grand

sons but are called His sons according to Ayah e Mubahilah “Faqul

Ta’alo Abna’ana wa Abna’akom…”) whose bright and luminous face will

be illuminated like a star.

9th Hadith

Maalik. He is kaseerur riwayah companion. He died in 74 AH and is buried

in Medinah) that Prophet of Allah (SAWW) said that (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF)

will be from my progeny, and His forehead will be bright and nose will be

sharp and graceful.

11th Hadith

It is reported from (Hazrat) Abu saeed Khudri (RA) that Prophet of Allah

(SAWW) said in praise of (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) that (Hazrat) Mahdi

Maood (ATF) will be from my Ahlebayt (AS, The Quranic verse of Chapter

Al Ahzaab “Innama yureedullaho leyuzheba ankomurijsa Ahlalbayti wa

yutahhirakum tatheera” – verily Allah wishes to keep away the impurities

from you Ahlalbayt (AS) and keep you purified as is the right of

purification. All ulema are agreed upon this, no one from shia sunni are

against this that Ahlebayt e Rasool (SAWW) are Hazrat Ali (AS), Hazrat

Fatimah Tuz Zahra (SA), Hazrat Imam Hassan (AS) and Hazrat Imam

Hussain (AS), but some non-shia scholars also include azwaj (RA) ur

Rasool (SAWW) in Ahlulbayt (AS). But azwaj (RA) ur Rasool (SAWW) are

not included in Ahlulbayt (AS) and around 30 ahadith from different

authorities which are reported by different ulma e ahle sunnah i.e. Ahmed

bin Hambal, Ibne Mardawiyah, Sa’albi and suyooti etc stand witness on

this. Molana Farman Ali (late) have gathered all these in his booklet “Al

Munazira” which summary is that Holy Prophet (SAWW) came to the

house of Hazrat Umme Salma (RA) and gave seat near Him to Hazrat Ali

(AS), Hazrat Fatimah Tuz Zahra (SA), Hazrat Imam Hassan (AS) and

Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) after calling them and then covered all

including himself with a mantle and prayed: O’ Allah these are my

Ahlebayt (AS) and keep away impurities from them and keep them

purified. Hearing this Hazrat Umme Salma (RA) tried to enter under the

mantle but stopped and it was said that you are not in Ahlebayt (AS) but

in Azwaj (RA). At the same time the above-mentioned verse revealed.

Since then for long Holy Prophet (SAWW) comes to the home of Hazrat Ali

(AS) at every prayer time and says holding the door sill of the house

“Assalam o Alaikum Ya Ahlalbayt (AS) – [Tafseer Durre Mansoor, Mulla

Jalal uddin suyooti, volume 5, page 198, 199]) and His nose will be

graceful, sharp and beautiful. He will fill the face of earth with justice and

equity when it will be filled with oppression and tyranny.

12th Hadith

It is reported from (Hazrat) Abu Imamah Bahili that I heard from the

Prophet of Allah (SAWW) that there will be four wars and four truce

between you and people of Rome and fourth will be through a man from

the people of Halqala. A man, who was from the tribe Abd Qais whose

name was Mastoor bin Abd Ghailan, from audience stood up and asked

Holy Prophet (SAWW): “O’ the Prophet of Allah (SAWW) who will be the

Imam of people in that era?” Prophet (SAWW) replied: “The Imam of

creatures will be (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) from my sons. He will rule for forty

years, and his illuminated face will be brighter than a star, and there will

be a mole on his right side, and He will be hidden in a village near Kufa.

He will have resemblance to Bani Israel. In His era the earth will spit out

treasures and countries of kufr o shirk will be conquered.”

name was duwwan. And she was qarshiya Amri) said while standing up:

O’ the Prophet of Allah (SAWW) where will be the Arabs on that day? And

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (RA) in Kashful Ghummah and

Fasoolul Mohimmah that I heard from the Prophet of Allah (SAWW)

addressing his companions that when (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) will appear

and (Hazrat) Esa bin Maryam (AS) will descend from the heavens, (at that

time) to whom you or your progeny should follow? (Hazrat) Esa (AS) who

is a prophet (AS) or Imam (Mahdi ATF) who is the successor of your

prophet (SAWW). Some have made addition in it with these words: your

Imam (Mahdi ATF) who is Imam from among you according to your Book

(Holy Quran). After reporting this hadith it is written that its Muttafaq

alaih. Bokhari and Muslim both have mentioned this in their Saheeh. Due

to this hadith, hadith-e-Jabir and hadith-e-Khudri Hazrat Mahdi (ATF)

should be Imam and Hazrat Esa (AS) Mamoom.

That hadith which Ibne Majah Qazvini has reported in his book from Abu

Imamah Bahili that this hadith is absolutely correct, is the hadith which

strengthens all these ahadith. The last part of the hadith is that “at dawn

Hazrat Imam Mahdi (ATF) will intend to offer prayer in Baytul Moqaddas

and at the same time (Hazrat) Esa bin Maryam (AS) will descend from the

heavens. Imam (ATF) will say to Hazrat Esa (AS) to lead prayer. Hazrat

Esa (AS), putting his hand on Imam (ATF)’s shoulder will say you are

better and best than me, and will offer prayer after Imam (ATF).

Further, it is reported from Shafi Mutallabi that this khabar is motawatar

and many narrators have narrated from the prophet of Allah (SAWW)

saying that when (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) from my Ahle Bayt (AS) will

appear then he will rule the earth for seven years. He will fill the earth

with justice and equity.

(Hazrat) Esa bin Maryam (AS) will descend and will participate in the

murder of Dajjal and (Hazrat) Mahdi (ATF) will be the Imam of this

Ummah. Hazrat Esa (AS) will offer prayer after him.
