Imaam Muhammad Al Mahdee -(Radiyal Laahu Anhu)

Imaam Muhammad Al Mahdee 
        (Radiyal Laahu Anhu) 
(The Twelfth [12th] Imaam of Ahle Baiet-e-Nabuwwat) 
Hazrat Allaamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi 
                              (May Allaah continue his grace)
 Compiled by 

   Bismil Laahir Rahmaanir Raheem 
One who has received Hidaayat (Guidance) from Almighty Allaah.
When somebody is appointed at Muqaam-e-Hidaayat
[The status of Guidance] then he also becomes a Guide for the
others. In sacred Hadees, the words of “Al Mahdiyyeen
have been stated for the Khulafaa-e-Raashideen
[The rightly guided Caliphs]. 
There are continuous narrations regarding Hazrat Saiyyidinaa
Imaam Muhammad Mahdee, which make it clear that he is a
personality who will appear before the Day of Judgment.
Who will be the cause of religious, political and substantial
dominance of the Muslim Community. According to a narration,
he will be the Caliph of Allaah Almighty in the world. (Musnad e
Imaam Mahdee with his emergence, will establish religious life
and the Islamic government. And there will be such prosperity
during his presence which was not present before. In the last era,
the honourable appearance of Imaam Mahdee has also been
declared as clear sign of the nearness of the Day of Judgment. 
According to the narrations, he will be born in Madinah Munawwarah.
He will be from the progeny of Makhdoomah-e-Kaainaat
[The honourable Lady of the Universe] Hazrat Saiyyidah Faatimah
Zahraa [Radiyal Laahu Anhaa]. It means he will be the correct lineage
“Saiyyid”. He will be from Sibt-e-Rasool
[The progeny of the Prophet], Shahzaadah-e-Batool
[The Prince of Batool] Saiyyidinaa Imaam Hasan
(Radiyal Laahu Anhu)
meaning he will be from Hasani Saadaat. It is said that
Saiyyidinaa Imaam Hasan (Radiyal Laahu Anhu) withdrew from his lawful rights of Caliphate therefore; the
Hasani Saadaat will be blessed in the form of Imaam Mahdee. 
After Fakhr-e-Kaunaien [The Pride of the Universe]
Saiyyidinaa Imaam Husaien (Radiyal Laahu Anhu), all the A’immah [Imaam’s] in the Husaieni Saadaat, were
righteous but those so-called Muslims afflicted them, imprisoned
them and killed some. In amid the Hasani Saadaat, Hazrat Imaam
Mahdee will kill the infidels and the polytheists and will be victorious.
His respected father’s name will be Abdul Laah and his sacred
mother’s name will be Aaminah. He will be recognized after forty
years of his birth and will lead the Muslim Ummah. Angels will help
him. He will perform prominent actions for seven to nine years and
will depart at evident natural age of forty-nine years. He will be a
completely beautified embodied form of the Most Elegant Morals of
Holy Prophet Muhammad
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam). 
The respected Ulamaa wa Auliyaa [Righteous religious scholars
and friends of Allaah] will recognize him by his signs. Imaam Mahdee
will be in some house in Makkah Mukarramah. The Scholars and the
Saints will cry and beg in his presence and will bring him out of the
house so that he may lead the Ummah. In Makkah Mukarramah,
in Baietul Laah [the Holy Ka’bah], in between Hajr-e-Aswad and
Maqaam-e-Ibraaheem (probably Hateem) people will take
Baie’at [Allegiance]. Unseen [Divine] voice will be overheard
regarding him being Mahdee [Guided one] and Khaleefatul Laah
[The Caliph of Allaah]. Descend of Hazrat Ieesaa (Salutation on him)
will take place during the same era. Either in Makkah Mukarramah
or in the country of Syria, during the Salaah [Namaaz] of Fajr,
Saiyyidinaa Ieesaa (Salutation on him) and Imaam Mahdee will
gather and Hazrat Ieesaa (Salutation on him) will perform Salaah
in his leadership. It is in the book “Al Ishaa’ah Li Ashraatis Saa’ah”
of Allaamah Muhammad Bin Rasool Saiyyid Barzanji, that
Hazrat Saiyyidinaa lmaam Mahdee will have the Flag of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam). 
If he will plant a dry bamboo in the ground it will become fertile and grow leaves and fruits. He will take out treasures of gold from the ground and distribute them. It has been said that Imaam Mahdee will point out towards a flying bird so it will drop at his feet. He will be a just ruler and a perfect Friend of Allaah. The Angels of the sky and the dwellers of the earth will be happy from him. Ashraatus Saa’ah (Signs of the Day of Judgment) which would be apparent before the appearance of Mahdee, it is amid them that a village of Syria will be engulfed in the ground. The river of Euphrates will be desiccated and the mountain of gold will appear from it. Also, there will be bloodshed amongst the people to get this gold. In the narration number 7119 of Bukhaari Shareef, it is said that whosoever may be present at that time, should not take any from that gold. It means it will not be good to take that gold. It is also been said that on the first [1st] of the Holy Ramadaan it will be a lunar eclipse and on the fifteen [15th] date it will be a solar eclipse (According to the scientists it is apparently impossible for something like this to happen). From the East, a great fire will appear continuously for three or seven days. A shining comet will appear. As the river was split for Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Moosaa (Salutation on him), the same way it will happen in the era of Imaam Mahdee. A nation will come from Khorasan with black flags. Almost after seven years of Baie’at [Allegiance] with Imaam Mahdee, Dajjaal will come out. Hazrat Ieesaa (Salutation on him) will come to destroy him. Imaam Mahdee will spend around two years or little more time with Hazrat Ieesaa (Salutation on him). 
Tirmizee Shareef narration #2232 explains that, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) who knows everything by the Grant of Allaah Almighty said, that
Mahdee will appear in my Ummah. He will stay for nine years
(as Caliph). A person will come to him saying bestow me something,
so he will give him handful after handful so much as he will have the
power to carry. It means that he will give him so much that the
questioner will not have the power to carry the weight according
to the bestowal. 
It is stated in Abu Daawood and Mishkaat Shareef, Abu Ishaaq says
that, Maulaa-e-Kaainaat Saiyyidinaa Alee (Radiyal Laahu Anhu) while
looking towards his son Saiyyidinaa Imaam Hasan Mujtabaa (Radiyal Laahu Anhu) said that, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) said
for this son of mine that he is Saiyyid [Leader], soon a person will be
born from his generation whose name will be on Your Prophet’s name
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) (Muhammad). He will be similar to
him Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) in habits and morals and will not be similar in appearance, and he will
enrich the entire world with justice and equality. 
In a second narration, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) said that, Mahdee will be from my children, the one with wide bright
forehead, the one with high straight nose. He will enrich the entire
world with justice and equality like it was filled with injustice and
If only one day would have been left in the world [to end] then Allaah
Almighty would have extended that day, until he (Imaam Mahdee)
would have definitely come. His name will be similar to mine
(Muhammad) and his father’s name will be to my father’s name
(Abdul Laah). He said, that Mahdee is from my descendants the
progeny of Faatimah. (Abu Daawood #4282 to #4286, Mu’jam
Kabeer #1024, Tirmizee #2230, Mustadrik #8670, 8671, 8328, 8364,
Mishkaat #5452] 
After attaining his natural physical age, Hazrat Saiyyidinaa
Imaam Mahdee will depart from this world. Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ieesaa
(Salutation on him) will lead his funeral prayers. It has been stated
that Imaam Mahdee will be buried in Baiet-ul Maqdis [Jerusalem].
(Wallaahu Ta’aalaa A’lam Bis Sawaab [Allaah Knows best] 
Certainly, there is no detail of any narration in any sacred Hadees
of the appearance of Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Imaam Mahdee
(Radiyal Laahu Anhu) in the fourteenth or fifteenth century. 
Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Imaam Mahdee’s fighting war with Jews and
Christians and certain other details do exist in the mentioning. 
The purpose of this brief writing is to stop the rumours. 
Allaah Almighty, due to his last Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam), may safeguard our Faith
(Ieemaan) and lives, and may save us from wickedness and the
wicked. Aameen 
If any inadvertence has been committed by me so
I am repentant and seek forgiveness in the Honourable
Court of Allaah Almighty. 
It is stated in Bahaar-e-Sharee’at, the abridged
event is this that when there will be governance of infidelity
all over the world, all the Abdaal [honourable designated
Saints] rather all the Auliyaa will gather from everywhere
and will migrate to Haramaien Shareefaien. Islaam will only
be there, and the remaining world will be filled with infidels.
It will be the month of the sacred Ramadaan, the Abdaal
will be busy in the circumambulation of Ka’bah and Hazrat
Imaam Mahdee will be there as well. The Auliyaa will recognize
him, will request him for Baie’at [Allegiance] but he will refuse. 
Suddenly, a sound will be heard from the Unseen,
Haazaa Khaleefatul Laahil Mahdiyyu Fasma’oo Lahu Wa Atee’oohu.
[He is the Caliph of Allaah (Almighty), listen to him and obey him]
All the people will do Baie’at on his blessed hand.
He will take all of them, along with him to the country, Syria.
