A MAN CALLED AL-HARITH IBN HARRATH (LION) WILL COME FORTH FROM MA WARA AN-NAHR (TRANSOXIANA). His army will be led by a man called Mansur who will establish or consolidate things for Muhammad's family as Quraysh consolidated them for the Messenger of Allah (saas). Every believer must help him. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 36, 4277; Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib; At-Taj al-jami' lil 'usul fi ahadith al-Rasul, Mansur 'Ali Nasif, Vol. 5, p. 617)
* Haris means lion.
|“O Master of believers, tell us about Hazrat Mahdi (as).” And the Master of believers said"... HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS A WELL-PREPARED, VICTORIOUS LION WITH AN EXTENSIVE IMPACT..." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, Collected by: Muhammad Baqir Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 184)|
