Muhammad ibn Hasan al-Mahdī (محمد بن الحسن المهدي), also known as Imam Zaman (Persian: امام زمان), is believed by Twelver Shī‘a Muslims to be the Mahdī, an eschatological redeemer of Islam and ultimate savior of humankind and the final Imām of the Twelve Imams who will emerge with Isa (Jesus Christ) in order to fulfill their mission of bringing peace and justice to the world. Twelver Shī‘a believe that al-Mahdī was born in 869 (15 Sha‘bān 255 AH) and assumed Imamate at 5 years of age following the killing of his father Hasan al-Askari.
Anti Christ is a misleading person who will be killed by Al-Mahdi (AS). Jesus Christ (AS) will come down from the sky to this earth and will join Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) as one of his supporters and will pray behind him.
The government of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) will last very long as we read in the narrations that: The rule of the Justice will long as much as the injustice ruled.
The person who claims such claim needs to read more about Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) who is the divine leader who will establish the world government of peace and justice for all human beings.
The Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) will have when he will re appear ten thousand sincere assistants who will lead and help people all over the world, out of them 313 will be the most pious and most sincere and most able to help the aim of the Imam (AS).
The 313 assistants will be regular individuals or scholars or leaders who have that high degree of sincerity and dedication to Allah (SWT). Many of them will be unknown to people because their sincerity stops them from seeking publicity, name or fame but known to Allah (SWT) as very humble and dedicated and pious. They will be men and women as well and from different parts of the world.
Seeing Imam Zaman (AS) is not a matter which can be achieved by just Du'a, but it needs purification of heart and deeds to reach to real piousness. Real pious servants of Allah,v can see Imam Zaman (AS) because of their continue piousness.
Do more good deeds like Reciting Quran, giving Sadaqa, helping in good cause, etc) and gift the reward to Imam Zaman. This can make us more near to him (AS).
from AllahYes. It is highly recommended to recite Quran and do good deeds on behalf of the Prophet (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny. Our great Ulama advise to recite Quran daily and gift the reward of it to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS). You will then get greater reward and more generous gifts from him.
It should be noted that reward of reciting Quran or any good deed can be gifted not only to the deceased ( Marhoumeen) but also to the living persons.
Yes of course. Humble servants of Allah (SWT) can be males or females. Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) meets, guides and helps servants of Allah, where ever and when ever Allah wants him to help. Many sincere females were been blessed with this bounty in many places and times. Piousness degrees are never restricted to any gender.
Allah says in Quran : Whoever does good whether male or female while being true believer, We will grant them righteous life and will grant them reward for the best of they were doing. (Sura 16, verse 14).
Allah (SWT) Has sent revelation (Wahi وحي) on the mother of Musa (Sura 28, verse 7) because she was a Pious female.
Different people have different ways of relating to Allah. Usually, people are at least a little bit reverent and show respect towards Allah like they might do towards people whom they respect in society, rather than being extremely casual like they might be with their friends.
However, everyone is different, and it is ok to talk to Allah in whatever way you feel is natural for you, especially if you feel like there is a good response. The important thing is that you are sincere.
The same with Imam Zaman (A).
It is said that some prophets like Yusuf (A) enjoyed a special sort of informality with Allah due to their extremely high level of closeness to Allah, which could make it more like a casual chat than a formal prayer, although this sort of thing will again vary from person to person.
Anyway, recommended etiquette for speaking with Allah (and the Imams) is modelled in the Qur'an, duas, and ziyarat texts that we have, and one can read these and see if they find inspiration in the style of talking there. But again, everyone is different!
Allah (SWT) is with us and we can seek from Him our needs and beg to Him any time we want.bit is highly recommended to seek from Allah in every matter in our life.
Allah (SWT) grants Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) as well as all the previous Infallible Imams the knowledge to know our deeds and the ability to hear us when we talk to him. It is highly recommended to talk to him as and when we need. That will strengthen our faith and our relationship with him (AS).
These claims from this person prove that he is a liar. He has been appointed and financially supported by our enemies to create dispute and cause trouble among the followers of Ahlul Bayt. Fortunately, his lies are clear for our community and after spending huge amounts of money which is been injected by our enemies,he hardly has any considerable following.
He claimed that he is son of imam Al-Mahdi, while people of Basra where he belongs to, know the name of his father and grand father and his family tree and confirm that he is a liar.
There are special websites and social media groups refuting his lies.
Dajjal is the last leader of falsehood, will come before the reappearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS). He will be killed by the last leader of righteous, Imam Al-Mahdi (A.S.). Dajjal is one of the definite signs of the reappearance of Imam Al Mahdi (A.S.). Dajjal will lead an army of the enemies of Ahlulbayt and fight against Imam Al-Mahdi (A.S.) and he will be defeated. (Al Amali by Al Toosi, Page 459). It is mentioned in Kamaal Ad-Din Page 336 from Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (A.S.) that Imam Al-Mahdi (A.S.) will kill Dajjal. Unfortunately, we read narrations in some Sunni books, which are taken from Non-Muslims and it go against the Truth. For example, the narration in Sahih Muslim which is called Hadeeth Al-Jassasa Volume 8 Page 204 & Hadeeth in Sahih Al Bukhari about Ibn Sayyad who is according to the narration of Bukhari the Dajjal. Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani in Fath Al-Bari Volume 13 Page 276 confirmed his opinion that Dajjal is still alive. We don’t have in our authentic narrations the exact date when Dajjal was born and in fact we don't need it, but we only need to know that Dajjal is a devil satanic leader and he will lead his followers to the hellfire, and he will fight against Imam Al-Mahdi (A.S.) and he will be killed by Him. (Al Amali by Al-Toosi Page 527, Al- Bihar Volume 76 Page 74, Al-Waafi Volume 26 Page 186).
Yes, it is mentioned in many narrations that Imam al-Mahdi (AS) will martyred and Imam Husain (AS) will pray his Namaz e Janaza. (Biharul Anwar , volume 53, page 103 and Al-Kafi 8:250)
There is a very beneficial video series about the topic here:
The sincere believers will obey the orders of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) in every matter in their life. He will not order all the believers to fight. His aim is not merely fighting but only against the enemies of human beings who are the tyrants. He will clean the whole earth from tyranny and injustice and fill the whole earth with justice and fairness.
He will never ask people to do any thing which they do not know, so, if you have no experience in fighting, you will not be asked to fight, unless you go through suitable training which makes you able to fight. That also only fighting was required in your area, which is not confirmed in every area. We need to prepare ourselves to obey the orders of our Imam (AS) but we can never know now whether he will order us to fight against the enemies of human beings or to build our societies and serve people.
