EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS REGARDING THE END TIMES AND THE MAHDI
ALLAH WILL STRIKE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF THE ENEMIES OF HAZRAT MAHDI.
Imam Baqir says, “Imam Mahdi will be assisted by God striking fear in the heart of the enemies.” (Kemalu’d-din, volume.1, bab.32, h.16, page.603)
Somehow they will fear Hazrat Mahdi.
OUR PROPHET (SAAS) SAYS HAZRAT MAHDI WILL KNOW ALL SCIENCES.
Our Prophet (saas) says, “You should acknowledge that, Mahdi shall be the heir of all sciences and know all the sciences.” (Necmu’s-Sagib, p.193)
THE FOLLOWERS OF HAZRAT MAHDI ARE VERY DILIGENT.
While describing the Imam Mahdi and his associates, our Prophet (saas) said, “They shall be very diligent and hard-working in obeying their Imam (Mahdi).” (Yawvmu al-Halas, p.223)
HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS GLORIFY GOD ON THEIR VEHICLES.
The followers of the Mahdi glorify God on their mounts. (Bihar-al Anwar, volume 52).
In other words, they constantly glorify Allah in their vehicles.
THE FOLLOWERS OF HAZRAT MAHDI PROTECT HIM AT THE RISK OF THEIR LIVES.
Imam Sadıq says, “Followers of the Mahdi turn round him like mouths and protect him at the risk of their lives.” (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 52).
In other words, his followers will protect him at all costs. Insha'Allah, I would become a follower of the Mahdi.
HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS PRAY TO BECOME MARTYRS.
The Mahdi and his followers desire to become martyrs for God (they pray). (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 52, page 308).
Open and look; they desire martyrdom from God, they pray to become martyrs.
IF HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS WANT, THEY CAN UPROOT A MOUNTAIN FROM ITS PLACE.
Imam Ali described them as the following: “They are like the lions coming out of their dens; if they want, they can uproot a mountain from its place.” (Yawmu al-Halas, p.223)
HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS DO NOT LIKE TO GLORY IN SACRIFICING THEIR LIVES FOR GOD.
The Mahdi and his followers are not the ones pleading abjectly to God for their patience and endurance. They would not like to glory in sacrificing their lives to God. (Yawmu’l Halas, page 224)
They do not have such an inappropriate style saying, “O God, please see how we are having difficulties and suffering a lot of pain.”
HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE IN HARMONY WITH EACH OTHER.
Imam Hazrat Ali says, “The hearts of the followers of the Mahdi would be together and in harmony with each other.” (Yawmu al-Halas, p.223)
IT IS ONE OF THE PORTENTS OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI THAT PEOPLE WOULD NOT FIND A PLACE TO FIND SHELTER AND ESCAPE FROM THE OPPRESSION. IT IS ONE OF THE PORTENTS OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI .
Believers in the time of Hazrat Mahdi would not be able to find shelter from evils of tyranny and dissensions. (Iqdud Durar, p.73)
You see these events.
SUFYAN IS THE MOST NEFAIROUS PERSON EVER.
Imam Sadiq says, “...when you see the Sufyan, you will have seen the worst person ever” (Kamal-Al-Deen, volume.2, bab.57, h.10, page.557).
In other words, it is the opposite system that Hazrat Mahdi is fighting against.
BEFORE THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI, SOME IGNORANT PEOPLE WOULD SAY, “GOD WOULD NOT NEED HAZRAT MAHDI”
Esbag bin Nebate says that Hazrat Ali said the followings while talking about the Mahdi: Before the appearance of him (the Mahdi), ignorant people would say, “God would not need the Mahdi”. (Kamal-Al-Deen, v.1, p.302)
In other words, God does not need the Mahdi.
DESPITE HIS ADVANCED AGE MAHDI WILL APPEAR AS A YOUNG MAN.
“By his omnipotence, Almighty God will extend the life of Mahdi, and then make Mahdi appear younger than forty.” (Kamal-Al-Deen, v.1, p. 305)
In other words, despite his advanced age, he would look like he is in his forties. For example, he may be 60 or 70 years old. Otherwise, I do not know. We will know when we see him.
HAZRAT MAHDI WOULD DIRECT THOUGHTS TO THE QURAN.
When personal thoughts become incompatible with the Qur'an, Mahdi would direct them to the Qur'an and cause the Qur'an to prevail in society. (Nahc al-Belaga, Sermon, 138).
