There are definite signs before the reappearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) mentioned in the authentic narrations e.g. in Kamal Al-Deen by Shaikh Al-Sadouq (2: 650) from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS): Defibite signs for the reappearance of Imam Al-Mahdi(AS) are: Al-Yamaani, Al-Sufyani, Al-Sayhah ( The loud Cry from the sky, killing of Nafis Al-Zakiyyah ( the pious person), and the land slide in the desert.

'There are other narrations including the Dajjal.

Allah (SWT) knows when Imam Al-Mahdi (As) will come back to public life. Allah only knows his age then. We know that his age now is 1187 years and 44 days as we are in 29 of the month of Ramadan 1442 as he was born in Samarra in 15th of Asha'ban in year 255 after Hijra.

'When he will re appear,bye will look like a man in his forties according to Hadeeth.

There is no such prophecy at all neither in Shia books of Hadeeth nor in authentic Sunni Hadeeths. There are three weak and fabricated narrations in this regard; one of them narrated from Thawban, one of the servants of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) but with out authentic narrators to Thawban. Two narrations from Abu Huraira who was serving Bani Umayya and fabricating for them whatever they wanted. These two narrations are in favour of the army of Bani Umayyad who attacked India.

These weak and fabricated narrations have no value among the scholars of Hadeeth.

'Unfortunately, such baseless "prophecy" is been misused by terrorist groups who consider all who differ with them as Kafir, from one side, and on the other side, by enemies of Islam to instigate non Muslims against the Muslims in India.

'Wassalam.

We have such narrations in Ghaibat al-No'mani (Page 268) narrated from Imam Al-Baqir (AS) and similar narration from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) in Al-Irshad by Al-Mufeed (V. 2 , Page 279) and al-Ghaibah by Shaikh al-Tousi , P.473.

The calculation of the year according to Ahlul Bayt (AS) is not necessarily the same calculation of the people.

Wassalam.
