HIS COMPANIONS WILL BE ABLE TO GET ON CLOUDS AND TRAVEL TO WHEREVER THEY LIKE.
Mu’jam al-Hadith Imam Mahdi V. 1 p. 296 and Kashf al-Gumma V. 2 p. 470 and Muntahab al-Asar p. 554
Our Prophet (saas) has called attention to the high technology that will be utilized at the time of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) appearance in many hadiths. The crucial details imparted by our Prophet (saas) in the subject hadiths directly correspond to the great part of the technology used in our day. One of the technologies in the end times imparted by our Prophet (saas) is the airplane industry. Our Prophet (saas) heralded that the companions of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will also make use of this technology. According to the hadith, the close companions of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and other Muslims who are deeply connected to him spiritually will travel to all corners of the world by means of airlines in order to convey the message of Islam. Our Prophet (saas) articulated this very clearly with his words that they “will be able to get on clouds and travel to wherever they like.” As known, clouds are in general present in the troposphere while airplanes fly in the upper layer of the stratosphere. Therefore, the expression to “get on clouds and travel” is precisely conforming to this scientific description.
