Imam al-Mahdi

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.

There is no re birth but resurrections or return to this life which known as  Raj'ah رجعة.

Raj'ah is the return of best servants of Allah and worst enemies of Allah to this life again to witness the victory of Islam and the punishment of its enemies. It is mentioned in Quran ( Sura Ghaafir, verse 11).

Imam Hussain (AS) will come back to this life in Raj'ah.

The 313 most trusted believers who will come with the Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) when he will come back to the public include many ladies. Some narrations mentioned that they will be fifty ladies among the 313. This is narrated by Jaabir Al-Jo'fi from Imam Al-Baqir (AS). (Ethbaat Al-Hodaat by al-Hurr Al-A'amily; 3:575.

In Dalaa'il Al-Imamah by al-Tabari , page 259: Mufadhdhal ibn Omar  said: I heard Imam aal-Sadiq (AS) saying: There will be with The Imam Al-Qaa'im thirteen women. The narration says that the Imam Al-Sadiq (AS) mentioned some names of those ladies: Alqinwaa Bint Rasheed, Umm Ayman , Hubabah Al-Waalibiyyah,  Sumayyah Umm Ammar, Zubaida, Umm Khalid Al-Ahmasiyyah,  Um Sa'eed Al-Hanafiyyah,  Subabah Al-Mashta, and Umm Khalid Al-Juhaniyyah.

So, the leading ladies with Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) are not just two but much more up to fifty. Thirteen of them will be very prominent personalities who will be resurrected from their graves to be with the Imam (AS).

This is a very important question for those who really care to improve themselves and achieve better degrees of success in this life and hereafter. These are few practical steps which can make the believer more close to Imam-e-Zamana (AS). More piousness leads to more nearness to Imam-e-Zaman. To add to our Taqwa (Piousness), these are few points:
1. Asking yourself before any act or word whether Allah (SWT) likes it or not? That is the best degree of remembering Allah (SWT) along with continuous remembering him in our heart and tongue.
2. Reciting Quran and Du'a with understanding and pondering and gifting its reward to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS).
3. Performing Nawaafil prayers especially Night Prayer ( SALAT ALLAYL or NAMAZ E SHAB) every night.
4. Talking to Imam e Zaman (AS) every day and night as he listens to us and responds to the pious believers. 
5. Gifting the reward of all our good deeds to Imam Al-Mahdi and all Ahlul Bayt (AS) which will not only multiply our reward, but also make us more near to them.
6. Having best Akhlaq (Manners) with parents, relatives especially your family members and with all people.
7. Being with Wudhu all the times as much as you can.
8. Trying to strengthen our will power by avoiding evil desires and performing good acts even if it can look like difficult like fasting, charity,etc. We need to control our desires and never allow our desires to control us.
9. Helping needy people in any possible way for the sake of Allah (SWT).
10. Trying to make believers happy by respecting them, caring for them, smiling in their faces and in any other act of generosity and kindness to them or their families.
11. Performing obligatory Prayers on time with out any delay. Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) performs every Prayer on time, so, your praying on time will make your Prayers elevated to Allah (SWT) with the Prayer of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS).
12. Keep your most important supplication and wish, the reappearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) and sincerely pray for him more than praying for yourself and your family.
Wassalam.

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!
