REMARKS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR ON HADITHS CONCERNING HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH)
160- Ghaybat e-Nomani: From Ibni Ukdah, from Ali bin Faddal, from Muhammed bin Hamza, from Muhammed bin Said, from Osman bin Hammad, from Süleyman bin Harun Ajali – it is related that Imam Hafri Sadik (pbuh) said:
The assistants of the Qaim (Mahdi) are reserved for him. Even if everyone leaves, God will bring his (the Mahdi’s) assistants to him. What God reveals in this verse is:
“...If these people reject it We have already entrusted it to a people who did not.” (Surat al An’am, 89)
And He reveals:
“…God will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the Muslims, fierce to the unbelievers, who strive in the Way of God and do not fear the blame of any censurer...” (Surat al Ma’ida, 54)
So in that time, people will be in a great state of corruption, and they will be divided. Very few people will gather around Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh); so few you could count them on the fingers of your hands. Our Prophet (saas) says, “They number around 313.” Imagine the dire state of the Ummah in the End Times; 313 people will gather around someone who had been foretold for 4,000 years. This shows the severity of the corruption in the End Times because the extremists will believe that the Mahdi (pbuh) is on the wrong path and that he is mad. Yet it is thanks to him the world survives. God makes him His instrument. The reckoning is postponed through him, and the rains fall thanks to him. God makes him His instrument. Yet they will still line up against him. It is our Prophet (saas) who says this, not me.
“...If these people reject it,” if they line up alongside the system of the dajjal (antichrist) “We have already entrusted it to a people who did not. (Surat al-An’am, 89)” God entrusts it to them, the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh). God is indicating that.
“…God will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the unbelievers, who strive in the Way of God and do not fear the blame of any censurer...”
(Surat al-Ma’ida, 54) The details about the system of the Mahdi are quite explicit. It is based on love. Love reigns, do you see? Love is the main feature of the community of the Mahdi (pbuh). God loves them, and they love God. “…humble to the believers,” To which believers? To all the believers of the world. They make no distinction between communities. Whoever says “God is One.” They are loving, nor proud. This means that the fanatics and bigots will be proud. They will become arrogant and extreme, like Pharaoh. Some of them. But the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh) will be humble and loving. Toward whom? Toward all Muslims. “…fierce to the unbelievers” Not aggressive, but fierce. How? In the sense of being strong physically and spiritually. They are strong and honorable with the purity of faith. Are they fierce and proud to believers? No. To whom are they proud? To unbelievers. They are proud and honorable while in front of unbelievers. “who strive in the Way of God…” The main feature of the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that they are always striving. “…and do not fear the blame of any censurer...” This means that believers will be weakened; a great many will fall out with one another, but the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh) will fear no censurer, and will even act with greater fervor. Because the community that is most condemned will be that of the Mahdi (pbuh). Everyone will condemn him apart from 313 people. This refers directly to the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh).
When the Qaim, Muhammed the Mahdi (pbuh) comes, he will say; we are the people promised in a verse of the Book of Almighty. In other words, the Mahdi (pbuh) will say this verse refers to us. Verse 41 of Surat al-Hajj explicitly refers to the Mahdi (pbuh).
“those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, will establish salat(prayers) and pay zakat (alms), and command what is right and forbid what is wrong. The end result of all affairs is with God.” (Surat al-Hajj, 41) We will establish them, God says, and then bestow authority upon them. Nobody in the world will possess authority apart from the Mahdi (pbuh). He is the one who is foretold. God says that their first characteristic is that they “perform salat (prayers).” Two, they “pay zakat (alms).” three, “they command what is right,” and four, “they forbid what is wrong.” They avoid all fanaticism, bigotry, lovelessness and wickedness. “The end result of all affairs is with God.” They all lie with me, God says. I do them all, He says.2013-07-28 21:47:36
