Ask A Question About Islam And Muslims

44 Questions

Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) will not fight but only against those enemies who insist on fighting him. Non Muslims will never be forced to become Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and Imam Ali (AS) never forced any non Muslim to become a Muslim. Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) will be applying Islamic rules in the same prophetic way.


1. Being pious in every act we do and every word we say.

2. Remembering the fact that our Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) is alive and he is informed about our acts and deeds and trying to always please him by obeying Allah (SWT).

3. Doing more good deeds and gifting the reward to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS). Pious believers gift all their reward to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) and other Infallible.

4. Praying sincerely for Imam Al-Mahdi (AS)'s reappearance and keeping it as our first and upmost important need.

5. Preparing ourselves to serve our Imam (AS) in every possible way that we can including serving his followers and lovers and spreading his message to people.

And many other noble acts which can help us in this regard.


Dajjal or Antichrist will be before the reappearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) and he will be killed by Imam Al-Mahdi(AS) or by Prophet Easa (Jesus) by order of the Imam Al-Mahdi (AS).


Part of the responsibility of a leader is to know what is happening to his people. This is especially true for a divine leader (prophet, Imam). 

Not all human beings have the qualities necessary to be good leaders. Some people have the social, intellectual, and emotional capacity, foresight, initiative, wisdom, and planning and communication skills to be great leaders. Most people do not. But that is ok, because we only need a handful of great leaders. 

So, bearing this burden might be very difficult for the average person. However, the Imam is not an average person. Allah would not give the Imam this responsibility if he did not have the ability to bear it, as Allah says in the Qur'an that He does not burden with something beyond their capability. Because the Imam is at the highest level of spiritual perfection (as well as intellectual and emotional perfection), he has the capacity to handle many things that regular people cannot. Also, when people are truly at a high level of faith and have a deep and sincere connection with God, this enables them to bear things that other people cannot.

Still, of course, we should try our best to give the Imam a good report about our deeds and circumstances, and try to work as hard as we can to improve things around us!
