Part 2:
Characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the Hadiths
(2/20)

The Physical Features of Hazrat Mahdi (as)

In addition to Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) good manners and intellectual struggle, our Prophet (saas) has also described his physical characteristics in great detail. The Prophet’s (saas) descriptions of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are so detailed and explicit that people seeing Hazrat Mahdi (as) when he appears will immediately recognize him.

It is revealed in one verse that the People of the Book will recognize our Prophet (saas) “as they recognize their own sons:”

Those We have given the Book recognize it as they recognize their own sons. Yet a group of them knowingly conceal the truth. (Surat al-Baqara, 146)

This verse is also a figurative reference to the recognition of Hazrat Mahdi (as). When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, people will recognize him in the light of our Prophet’s (saas) descriptions, as they recognize their own sons. Despite this, however, some people will still pretend not to recognize this blessed individual, and will deny him.

Astonishing Details Regarding Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Physical Appearance And How To Recognize Him

In the hadiths, our Prophet (saas) provides for no other person or event that will appear after him such detailed and comprehensive information as he does about Hazrat Mahdi (as). We are told in the hadiths that the Prophet Jesus (as) will also return to earth and the antichrist will appear in the End Times, together with Hazrat Mahdi (as). However, neither the Prophet Jesus (as) nor the antichrist are the subject of so much amazing and detailed information as Hazrat Mahdi (as).

The hadiths contain very detailed descriptions of the physical features of Hazrat Mahdi (as), as well as of his moral virtues, life and activities. Putting all this together, it is clear that these features being seen together in one person cannot be unintended.

This also reveals how important it is for Muslims to be able to accurately recognize Hazrat Mahdi (as). When Hazrat Mahdi (as), whose coming is close at hand, is encountered, by Allah’s leave, all Muslims will personally see the accuracy of these astonishingly detailed descriptions of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) physical characteristics.

In the hadiths, our Prophet (saas) reveals separate places for each of the detailed signs on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) body, using separate descriptive terms for each. He sometimes refers to a MOLE, or a MARK, a SIGN or a SEAL and likens these to a LEAF, PEARL or STAR

In addition to all these, Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) complexion, hair and beard color, stature, build, the general outline of his face, the shape of his head and forehead and features such as his eyebrows, nose and teeth are all described in the most astounding detail.

For example, in one hadith the Prophet (saas) says “Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a BLACK MARK on his RIGHT leg.” He does not just speak of a mark, but provides specific and distinctive detail, saying it will be BLACK and on his RIGHT LEG. Examination of the hadiths below will show that our Prophet (saas) has provided a detailed physical description of Hazrat Mahdi (as).

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Is Beautiful Andradiant

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is a beautiful young man, with a beautiful face. THE LIGHT OF HIS FACE rises to his head and the blackness of his hair. (Ibrahim Suleymanoglu, Mehdilik ve Imamiye [Mahdism and Imamate], p. 153; Iqdud Durar)

His face is RADIANT LIKE A SHINING STAR. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 33; Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 22)

The Prophet (saas) said: "Hazrat Mahdi (as) is a man of 40 from my line. His face is LIKE A STAR SHINING in the heavens." (Ali Ibn Sultan Muhammad al-Qaari al-Harawi al-Hanafi, Risalat Mashrab al Vardi fi Mazhabi 'l Mahdi)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my children. His face is like a bright star. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

HE IS BEAUTIFUL OF FACE. THE LIGHT OF HIS COUNTENANCE BESTOWS GRANDEUR ON HIM. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is a young man of medium stature and A BEAUTIFUL FACE. ... THE LIGHT OF HIS FACE SHINES LIKE DAY over the blackness of his hair, beard and head, and gives him grandeur. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

It is related from Humran bin A'ayan that Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) was told: "... Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a mark on his forehead, and HIS FACE WILL BE BEAUTIFUL. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 253)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Face Will Be Pearly White, Radiant and Clean

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS AN INDIVIDUAL FROM MY LINE. HIS FACE IS LIKE THE PEARL STAR. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Mahdi 1; Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 155)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Be Arab In Complexion, In Other Words, He Will Be Darkish White

The coloring of the Arab race is a reddish-white complexion like that of our Prophet (saas). The Prophet’s (saas) complexion is described as follows in accounts:

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is Arab in coloring… (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 15-75)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) coloring is Arab. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

The Arab complexion is a mixture of red and white.

Our Prophet (saas) had a reddish-white complexion. However, the visible parts of his skin were nearer to dark because of the Sun and the wind. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be the same color as the Prophet (saas), whose complexion is described thus:

• Anas ibn Malik (ra)narrates: "Our Prophet (saas) was of medium height; he was not tall and not short; he had a pleasant appearance. His hair was neither curly nor straight. The color of his mubarak [something on which Divine goodness has been bestowed] face was a saintly white.(At-Tirmidhi, Imam Abu `Isa Muhammed ibn `Isa Tirmidhi, Shamail Sharif, p. 7-8)

• Hazrat Hassan (ra)narrates: "The Messenger of Allah (saas) was innately imposing and majestic. His hair was between curly and straight; if it was parted in two, he hang it down on either side of his head, if not, he did not. If he allowed it to grow, it passed the fleshy part of his ears. Our Prophet’s (saas) coloring was whitish and bright, that is saintly white. His forehead was clear. His eyebrows were crescent-like, thick and close to one another. His neck had a silvery transparency like that of statues made of pure marble. All his limbs were in proportion and very handsome..." (At-Tirmidhi, Imam Abu `Isa Muhammed ibn `Isa Tirmidhi, Shamail Sharif, p. 18-22-23)

• Anas ibn Malik (ra) narrates: "The Messenger of Allah (saas) was neither tall, nor short. His complexion was neither pure white, nor too dark. His hair was neither straight nor curly. ... When he bade farewell to this mortal world, there were not 20 white hairs in his hair and beard." (Sunan at-Tirmidhi, Vol. 4, p. 201)

• “Our Master was a whitish pink in color. His eyes were black and his eyelashes thick and long." (Hazrat Ali (ra), Ahmad Diya ad-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol. 2, p. 519/4)

• Anas ibn Malik said this about the Prophet’s (saas) complexion: He was white, but a darkish white. (Ibn Kathir, Shamail ar-Rasul, p. 28)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Have A Fair Complexion and Two Marks The Same Color As Those On Our Prophet (saas)

His Eminence, Abu Ja'far, Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) through his forefathers has narrated from the chief of Ahl al-Bayt, His Eminence, Commander of the Belivers (as) that His Eminence proclaimed from the pulpit, "IN THE LAST AGE A MAN FROM MY PROGENY [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WOULD RISE, HAVING A FAIR COMPLEXION THAT HAS SOME REDNESS (HUE) ... AND HE WOULD HAVE TWO BEAUTY SPOTS ONE OF WHOM SHALL BE THE COLOR OF THE PROPHET. HE SHALL RISE UP." (Allama Baqir Sharif al-Qurashi, The Life of Imam al-Mahdi (as), p. 47)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my grandchildren. ... HIS COMPLEXION RESEMBLES THAT OF THE ARABS AND HIS BODY RESEMBLES THOSE OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL... [Abu Abdillah Muhammad bin Yusuf Ganji Shafei, Al-Bayan Fi Akhbar Sahib az-Zaman)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Has The "Seal of Prophethood" On His Shoulder

We understand from the hadiths that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a clear sign on his back, between his shoulders, as in the Prophet’s (saas). This sign is known as the “the Seal of Prophethood.”

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have the sign of prophethood on his shoulder as the Prophet (saas) did. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 41)

The sign of the Prophet (saas) is on his shoulder. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 165; Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 23)

The mark of the Prophet (saas) is on his shoulder. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

Our Prophet (saas) has revealed that there will be A SIGN BELONGING TO OUR PROPHET (SAAS) on Hazrat Mahdi’s body. Other hadiths state that THIS SIGN IS THE PROPHET’S SEAL OF PROPHETHOOD and this is compared to the PROPHET’S MARK. This is yet another astonishing detail about Hazrat Mahdi (as).

As we know, THE SEAL IS DARK IN COLOR and COVERS THE SURFACE.

In addition, the location of this mark on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) back is pinned down by the provision of specific coordinates. Accounts state that every prophet has the seal of prophethood on his right hand. The seal of our Prophet (saas) is described as being “at the level of his heart on the skin of his left shoulder blade.” The reference in the hadiths to Hazrat Mahdi (as) having the seal of prophethood of our Prophet (saas) on his shoulder shows that he will also have “A DARK MARK AT THE LEVEL OF HIS HEART ON HIS BACK, ON HIS LEFT SHOULDER BLADE.”

Our Prophet's (saas) Seal of the Prophethood

Jabir ibn Samurah (ra) relates: "I saw the seal of prophethood between the Messenger of Allah's (saas) shoulder blades."(At-Tirmidhi, Imam Abu `Isa Muhammed ibn `Isa Tirmidhi, Shamail Sharif, Vol. 1, Hilal Press, Ankara, 1976, p. 36)

Abu al-Saib bin Yazid relates: "My eye saw the seal of the Prophet (saas) between his shoulders." (Sunan at-Tirmidhi, 6:126))

Ibrahim bin Muhammad, one of the grandsons of Hazrat Ali, relates: "In describing the characteristics of our Prophet (saas), my grandfather Hazrat Ali would relate all the hadith about the physical appearance of the Messenger of Allah (saas) at length and say:

'There was the seal of prophethood between his shoulder blades. And he is the last of the prophets.' (At-Tirmidhi, Imam Abu `Isa Muhammed ibn `Isa Tirmidhi, Shamail Sharif, Vol 1. Hilal Press, Ankara, 1976, p. 38)

He Will Have a Mole Shaped Like a Leaf on His Back

Abu Bashir says: Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) or Jaffar Sadik (as) said: "... THERE IS A LEAF BELOW AND TO THE LEFT OF HIS [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] LEFT SHOULDER BLADE, JUST LIKE THE LEAF OF THE MYRTLE." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 253)

The hadith provides detailed information about the location of this mole on the back of Hazrat Mahdi (as): that it is BETWEEN HIS SHOULDERS; BELOW AND TO THE LEFT OF HIS LEFT SHOULDER. It is also referred to as a LEAF-SHAPED one, so it appears the reference is to one that will be the color of skin, with distinct edges and raised above the level of the skin, thus resembling a leaf in shape and of the color of a faded leaf.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Resemble The Children of Israel In Appearance

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) stature and posture resemble those of the People of Israel. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, pp. 36-29.)

His body is an Israelite one. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 24)

Abdullah bin Harith says: HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) will rise at the age of forty and will RESEMBLE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL (in terms of appearance). (Al-Hawi lil-fatawi, vol. 2, p. 135)

Abdullah b. Harris şöyle der: HZ. MEHDİ (AS) kırk yaşında iken kıyam edecek ve (görünüş bakımından) İSRAİLOĞULLARINA BENZEYECEKTİR. (Kitab-ul Havi li'l Feteva, c. 2, s. 135)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Feet Will Point Outward as He Walks

One feature of his is that as he walks there is a space between his thighs, and they are at a distance from one another. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 32)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Use His Hand To Emphasize What He Is Saying

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will use his hands when he talks; he will move his hand as he wishes to emphasize what he is saying and that people will see those motions:

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will STRIKE HIS LEFT KNEE WITH HIS RIGHT HAND when he speaks slowly and steadily. (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 174)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Be of Medium Stature

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be of average height. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 41)

According to accounts by Abu Abdullah Nuaim Ibn Hammad from Abu Ja'far bin Muhammad bin Ali al-Baqir, Hazrat Ali was asked about the attributes of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and he replied: "He [Hazrat Mahdi] is of medium height and a young man with a beautiful face…" (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

Our Prophet (saas) is also described as being of medium height in accounts:

Anas bin Malik stated that: "The Messenger of Allah (saas) was of middling height." (At-Tirmidhi, Imam Abu `Isa Muhammed ibn `Isa Tirmidhi, Shamail Sharif, p. 15)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is a Majestic Individual

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is a majestic individual. (Iqdud Durar)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is like one of the People of Israel. [His demeanor resembles theirs, it is majestic and wise.] (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, pp. 23-30)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Beard will be Copious and Thick

His (HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS)) beard will be copious and thick. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as) beard is thick. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

... He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] has black hair. His beard is black. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

... The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] face shines like day over the blackness of his hair, beard and head, and gives him grandeur. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a thick beard... (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Have a Light Beardat The Sides and Long at The Front

... [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS] A MAN OF AVERAGE HEIGHT, DARK, WITH A LIGHT BEARD AT THE SIDES AND LONG IN THE FRONT; ... ONE WHO WILL BE KNOWN AS SHUAYB IBN SALEH. HE WILL HAVE WHITE CLOTHES, A BLACK BANNER AND 4000 PEOPLE UNDER HIS COMMAND... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, al-Fatawa al-Hadithiyya, p. 41)

One of the details our Prophet (saas) supplies about Hazrat Mahdi (as) is to do with his beard. The Prophet (saas) has said in several hadiths that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be bearded, and in this hadith he provides detail about the shape of his beard. He says that the texture of his beard will be light and thin at the sides while the lower part is long.

In this hadith the Prophet (saas) addresses Hazrat Mahdi (as) as Shuayb ibn Saleh. In interpreting this hadith, the great Islamic scholar al-Haythami said that the word Shuayb used for Hazrat Mahdi (as) means a small division, meaning that the number of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) followers waging an intellectual struggle against unbelievers with him will be very low. He also explained that the term ibn Saleh notes that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) father will also be a very righteous man. On the basis of the trustworthy hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as), who the Prophet (saas) says will wear white clothes, al-Haythami has provided a further piece of information, saying that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will also bear the name of al-Harith, meaning Lion.

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Teeth will Be Very Bright

Narrated Hazrat Ali (ra):

"... His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] front teeth are bright ..."

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) teeth are bright… (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 174)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Be Someone With Green Eyes and Whose Beard is Sparse at The Sides

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN WITH GREEN EYES, CURVED EYEBROWS, A SNUB NOSE AND A THICK BEARD THOUGH BEARDLESS TOWARD THE RIGHT CHEEK.
(Reports coming in about the Mahdi, (Nurul Ebsar) The Ahl Al-Bayt and the Twelve Imams, Chiefs of the Saints and Stories of the Imams of the Schools (1250),Translated by: Saim Gungor, (Pamuk Publications, April 2004 Vol: 628 77 93) pp. 588-589)

Hadiths transmitted from our Prophet (saas) provide important information about Hazrat Mahdi's (as) external appearance.

1. HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN... WITH GREEN EYES.

According to hadiths concerning Hazrat Mahdi (as), he will have green eyes.

2. HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN... WITH A SNUB NOSE.

According to the hadith revealed by our Prophet (saas) the nose of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be small and smooth with a slight protrusion in the middle part:

"HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) has thick hair, a broad brow and a slight cavity on his brow. HIS NOSE IS SMALL AND THERE IS A SMALL PROTRUSION ON THE CENTER OF HIS NOSE..." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have Slanted Eyes

Humran bin A'ayan says: I asked Imam Muhammad Bakir (as): ... Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have SLANTED EYES... (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 252)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Whole Body will Be Wide

Among the information delivered by the Prophet (saas) about Hazrat Mahdi (as), who is the Imam of the End Times and spiritual leader of the time, his physical features are also told in great details. One of these features is the fact that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) body is wide and majestic just like the Prophet’s (saas). In the hadiths it is pointed out that Hazrat Mahdi (as) is broad shouldered and has a wide stomach. Besides it is also understood that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) eyebrows are close to one another, that he walks fast, meaning he has a lively creation.

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is large of body. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

From Yahya bin Nufal, indeed Musa ibn Ja'far (as) raises his hands and supplicates after afternoon prayer, I inquire from him saying, "For whom did you offer prayer?" He said: "For Al-Mahdi (as) among the family of Muhammad (saas)" and continued: "HE IS HAVING WIDE STOMACH, HIS LEGS ARE VERY ENERGETIC, HIS SHOULDERS ARE WIDE … HIS NIGHT SHALL GUARD THE STARS BY HIS BOWING DOWN AND PROSTRATION TO ALLAH, HE WHOM THE BLAMES OF THOSE THAT BLAME SHALL NOT AFFECT HIM BEFORE ALLAH, HE IS THE LUMINOUS CANDLE, HE SHALL RISE WITH THE COMMAND OF ALLAH." (Bihar al-Anwar, 86-81)

His Eminence, Abu Ja'far, Imam Muhammad Baqr (as) through his forefathers has narrated from the chief of Ahl al-Bayt, His Eminence, Commander of the Belivers (as) that His Eminence proclaimed from the pulpit, "IN THE LAST AGE A MAN FROM MY PROGENY [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WOULD RISE, ... HAVING A CLEAR AND WIDE BELLY AND HIS THIGHS WOULD BE BROAD AND HIS BONES SHALL BE LONG (BIG) AND PROMINENT ..." (Allama Baqir Sharif al-Qurashi, The Life of Imam al-Mahdi (as), p. 47)

In another hadith, Hazrat Ali (as) again mentions about Imam Mahdi (as) in the following words: "HE SHALL HAVE A WIDE FOREHEAD… AND A CLEAR AND WIDE BELLY, BROAD THIGHS …" (Yanabee'-al-Mawadda, p. 423))

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] stomach large, and the space between his thighs is open ... (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar, p. 13)

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] ... brow is wide. (The hadith indicates that Hazrat Mahdi's (as) head will also be large.) (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 22)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Stomach will Be Wide

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] stomach large, and the space between his thighs is open. ...(Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar, p. 13)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Thighs will Be Broad

Since Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a wide stomach, his thighs will naturally be broad, as well.

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] brow is open... his stomach large, and the space between his thighs is open. ... (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar, p. 13)

THERE IS A SPACE BETWEEN HIS THIGHS... (Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi "Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Brow will Be Broad and Open

The hadiths relate that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) brow will be open and broad, and that his head will be proportionately large.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my people ... His brow is open. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 21)

Allah will send a son of my line [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], with a clear brow, who will fill Earth with justice and distribute goods and property in abundance. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

Certain it is that Allah will send a person [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] from my line with a clear brow. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar, p. 11)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will have a clear brow(Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 174)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a clear brow. (This hadith is narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud and Mustadrak al-Hakim.)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Small and Thin Nose

He will have a broad brow, his nose will be thin. (Tirmidhi; Al-Rudani, Jam' al-Fawa`id, Vol. 5, p. 365)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is someone with ... a small nose ... (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is from my line. He will have a clear brow and A THIN NOSE… (Ahmad ibn Hanbal II-291, III-17; Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 14, Samil Press, K. al-Mahdi (35), p. 404)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] has thick hair, a broad brow and a slight concavity on his forehead. HIS NOSE IS SMALL and there is a small protrusion right on the bridge. There is also a protruding mole on his cheek. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13)

According to Abu Sa'id al-Khudri's (ra) account, the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: "Hazrat Mahdi (as) is from my line. He will have a clear brow and A FINE NOSE... (Ahmad ibn Hanbal II-291, 111-17; Sunan Abu Dawud, Samil Press, 14/403-404)

Abd al-Malik al-'Isami (1111) is a well-known historian residing in Mecca. In his four-volume work of history known as Simt al-Nujum al'awali he says:

"... HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A TEMPERATE YOUNG MAN WITH A BEAUTIFUL FACE AND HAIR, A FINE NOSE AND BROAD FACE." (Abd al-Malik al-Shafi'i al-Makki al-'Isami, Simt al-Nujum al'awali, Vol 4, p. 138; Abdullah Turan, Hz. Mehdi Aleyhisselam [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], Al-i Taha Press, p. 157)

According to what Imam Abu Ya'la and Al-Diya' al-Maqdisi narrate in al-Mukhtara from Abu Sa'id, the Prophet (saas) said: "The Judgment Day will not take place until someone from my Ahl al-Bayt, with straight hair, a clear brow and A FLAWLESS NOSE fills the world that was filled with oppression before him, with justice instead." (Muhammad ibn Yusuf Salihi, Subul al-huda wa-al-rashad fi sirat Khayr al-Ibad (al-Sirah al-Nabawiyah), p. 202)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Eyebrows will Be Curved

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] eyebrows are curved. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have Black Hair

According to accounts narrated by Abu Abdullah Nuaim Ibn Hammad from Abu Jaffar ibn Muhammad ibn Ali Al-Baqir, Hazrat Ali (as) was asked of the characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and he answered as follows:

The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] face rises to his head and the blackness of his hair. (Ibrahim Suleymanoglu, Mehdilik ve Imamiye [Mahdism and Imamate], p. 153; Iqdud Durar)

... His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] hair hangs over his shoulders. The light of his face gives him grandeur. He has black hair. He has a black beard. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] face shines like day over the blackness of his hair, beard and head, and gives him grandeur. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have Strikingly Beautiful Hair

We are told in the hadith that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have “a beautiful face and beautiful hair.” In addition, we are told that Hazrat Mahdi (as), described above as having “a wide face” and in other hadiths as having “a broad forehead,” will also have a largish head, like the holy head of the Prophet Muhammad (saas). 

Al-Qirmani al-Dimashqi (1019), a famous Sunni scholar, writes in his Akhbar al-Duwal:

"… He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] WILL BE OF MEDIUM HEIGHT WITH A BEAUTIFUL FACE AND HAIR..." (Al-Qirmani al-Dimashqi, Akhbar al-Duwal, p. 117 - printed in 1382 AH)

Abd al-Malik al-'Isami (1111) is a well-known historian residing in Mecca. In his four-volume work of history known as Simt al-Nujum al'awali he says: "... He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] IS A TEMPERATE YOUNG MAN WITH A BEAUTIFUL FACE AND HAIR, A FINE NOSE AND BROAD FACE." (Abd al-Malik al-Shafi'i al-Makki al-'Isami, Simt al-Nujum al'awali, Vol 4, p. 138; Abdullah Turan, Hz. Mehdi Aleyhisselam [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], Al-i Taha Press, p. 157)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Black Mark on His Right Leg

[Hazrat Mahdi (as)] WILL HAVE A BLACK MARK on his right leg. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 251)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Mole on His Forehead

Abu Bashir says: Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) or Jaffar Sadik (as) said: "There are two signs of the Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. There will be A MOLE and a mark ON THE HEAD and a mole between the shoulders." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 253)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Mark (Scar) on His Forehead

Humran bin A'ayan says: I asked Imam Muhammad Baqir (as): ... THERE WILL BE A MARK ON HIS [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] FOREHEAD, and a mole on his face. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 252)

Humran bin A'ayan quotes Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) that he said: "... Hazrat Mahdi (as), WILL HAVE A MARK ON HIS FOREHEAD, and his face will be beautiful..." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 252-253)

Abu Bashir says: Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) or Jaffar Sadik (as) said: "There are two signs of the Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. There will be a mole and A MARK ON THE HEAD ..." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 253)

This mark on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) forehead is probably A SCAR. In addition, the use of the word “mark” in the hadiths, instead of “mole,” suggests that the mark will be lighter in color than a mole.

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Forehead will Be Bright

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri narrates from the Messenger of Allah (saas) that he said, "Indeed, Almighty Allah will raise from my progeny and Ahl al-Bayt a man, who would ... HAVE A BRIGHT FOREHEAD so that he may fill the earth with justice, welfare and economic equality." (Iqdud Durar, p. 101)

There will Be a Mole on Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Cheek

Rivayetlerden Hz. Mehdi (as)'ın yanağında inciyi andıran, yıldız gibi parlak yani açık renkli bir ben olacağı anlaşılmaktadır:

There is a mark on his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] cheek, reminiscent of a pearl, illuminating his face like a star. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a thick beard, bright front teeth, a mole on his face, and a broad forehead. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will have a mole on his face. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 41)

There is a mole on his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] face. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi)

The presence on the cheek of A SIGN ENLIGHTENING the face LIKE A STAR, REMINISCENT OF A PEARL, of Hazrat Mahdi (as) has been reported in the hadiths. Not only the word “mole” is used for this feature of Hazrat Mahdi (as), as all the features of this mole have been described. Terms such as “reminiscent of a pearl,” “like a star” and “illuminating” provide great detail about its shape and color. All this information shows that THIS MOLE WILL BE THE COLOR OF SKIN and not dark.

The Mole on Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Cheek Will Resemble That of The Prophet Moses (as)

The hadith notes that the Prophet Moses (as) had a similar mole on his cheek to the light-colored one on the cheek of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) is descended from our Prophet (saas) and comes from the same line as all the prophets. Allah has used this blood bond to create similarities between the other prophets and Hazrat Mahdi (as).

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a dip at the beginning of his straight nose, between his eyebrows. As with the Prophet Moses (as), the mole on his cheek will protrude slightly and be bright like a star. His complexion is very bright. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13, p. 243 [Farsi translation])

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Have a Clean and Peaceful Countenance

The prominent and acknowledged poet, Agha Sayyid Hasan has thus mentioned about His Eminence [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]: "THE ELEGANCE CAME UP (AROSE) THROUGH HIS CLEAR FACE. THE MORNING BREEZE SPREAD FROM HIS CALMING COUNTENANCE." [Minanur Rahman, 2/237]

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my grandchildren. HIS FACE IS BRIGHT LIKE A STAR ... Everything living in the earth and sky, even the birds, will be delighted with his rule and happy with his ssuccessio. He will rule for twenty years."[Abu Abdillah Muhammad bin Yusuf Ganji Shafei, Al-Bayan Fi Akhbar Sahib az-Zaman]

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Age

The ages stated in hadiths as those at which Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be sent are those at which he starts work, and at which people will recognize him and witness his activities.

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will be sent when he is between 30 and 40 years old… Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my children. He is around 40. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 41)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is one of my line. He is 40 years old. His face is like a bright star…(Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is a young man. (Mari' bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Slight Concavity on His Forehead

His [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] hair is thick, his forehead is broad and there is a slight concavity on his forehead. His nose is small, and there is a very small protrusion right on the bridge. A small mole protrudes on his cheek. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13)

The hadith notes the presence of a small concavity on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) broad forehead. There will be an almost unremarkable protrusion in the middle of his small, straight nose. The hadith also says that the mole on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) cheek will be protruding.

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Skin Will Be Bright

The color of his face is described variously as shining like a gold-bronze coin; so bright that it is almost impossible to recognize the real color. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13, p. 263)

The hadith draws attention to the beauty of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) skin. Many hadiths reveal that Hazrat Mahdi (as), who will appear to be aged around 40 even when he is older, will have strikingly bright, beautiful and healthy skin.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Have a Small Dip Between His Eyebrows

Hazrat Mahdi (as)… WILL HAVE A SMALL DIP BETWEEN HIS EYEBROWS… (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13, p. 243 [Farsi translation])

In this hadith of the Prophet (saas), it is said that Hazrat Mahdi (as) WILL HAVE A NATURAL BROW FURROW LINE (IN THE FORM OF A SINGLE LINE) between his eyebrows.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Look Young Even in Advanced Age

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will grow older in years along with everyone else. But he will always remain youthful in appearance. He will always have the appearance of a man of around 40. The reason why the hadith draws attention to his youthful appearance as a distinguishing feature is that people will age quickly in the End Times. Indeed, in the End Times in which we are living, it is notable how many young people undergo a rapid physical collapse. Many young people develop wrinkly skin very early, with lines constantly developing around their eyes and signs of aging rapidly manifesting themselves. Allah will preserve Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) youthful appearance, and he will look 40 even in advanced years.

And ONE OF HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS)] SIGNS IS THAT HE WILL NOT AGE WITH THE PASSAGE OF DAYS AND NIGHTS. (Lutfullah Saafi Gulpaygani, Muntakhab al-Asar Fee Al Imam al-Saani al-Ashar, p. 285)

All the information given in the hadiths is highly detailed. Nobody else is described in such detail in the hadiths of the Prophet (saas). The fact that, like all the information provided about the life of Hazrat Mahdi (as), all the characteristics of his physical appearance are so distinguishing is an important sign and also a blessing for all Muslims awaiting him with great love and excitement and who are eager to be able to recognize him.

Together with all the other signs we are given, such as the fact that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will assume the spiritual leadership of all Muslims by being instrumental in unifying the Islamic world, that he will establish Islamic moral values on the world by neutralizing irreligious ideologies, that he will perform the prayer (salat) with the Prophet Jesus (as) and be a means whereby the whole Christian world turns to Islam, a consideration of all the details in his physical appearance will leave no room for doubt as to the identity of Hazrat Mahdi (as) when, by Allah’s leave, he appears.
