The traditions that indicate the people will assist his government
Comprised of three traditions
697. Sunan ibn Māja1: Narrated to us Ḥarmalat b. Yaḥyā al-Miṣrī and Ibrāhīm b. Sa`īd al-Jauharī, from Abū Ṣāliḥ `Abd al-Ghaffār b. Dāwūd al-Ḥarrānī, from Abū Lahī`a, from Abū Zur`a Amr b. Jābir al-Ḥaḍramī, from `Abd-Allah b. al-Ḥarth b. Jaz’ al-Zubaidī, from the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be on him and his family, who said: “A [group of] people will emerge from the East and will prepare for the Mahdī—meaning his government.”
698. Sunan Abī Dāwūd2: From Hārūn, from `Amr b. Abī Qays, from Muṭarrif b. Ṭarīf, from Abū l-Ḥasan, from Hilāl b. `Amr, from `Alī, may Allah be satisfied with him, from the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be on him and his family, who said:
A person will emerge from Mā Warā’ al-Nahr. He will be called al-Ḥārith b. al-Ḥarrāth; in the vanguard [of his army] will be a person called Manṣūr. He will organize or prepare for the family of Muḥammad just as the Quraish prepared for the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be on him [and his family]. It is compulsory for every believer to assist him—or he said—to respond to his [call].
Tradition no. 720 also establishes the above concept.
