Through the divine faiths He sent down in the past, Almighty Allah has spoken of a difficult time, the End Times, an era full of strife, war, oppression and troubles, when killing and acts of terror reach a zenith, and when there will be many natural disasters and economic crises. Almighty Allah has revealed that the King Messiah [Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] will appear with the title of “the guide to faith” as a savior for the whole world in this final age, when the world will be convulsed in a state of terrible disorder, and has told all mankind about this blessed individual.
These glad tidings have been imparted to both Muslims and religious Jews in their own holy books. The Qur’an contains important references to the way of the Mahdi and the global dominion of the moral values of Islam. Hadiths handed down from our Prophet Muhammad (saas) describe Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the End Times in great detail.
In the same way, the events of the End Times and the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as a leader who will bring peace and security to the whole world are also clearly set out in the Torah and the Zabur (Psalms). This blessed individual who will appear in the End Times, described in the Torah and the Psalms by such names as the MESSIAH, the KING MESSIAH and SHILOH (the one who is sent, the gift of Allah), is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Therefore, in the End Times in which we are living, and in the light of our Lord’s promise, it is essential for Muslims and religious Jews TO FERVERNTLY DESIRE THE APPEARANCE OF THE KING MESSIAH, ANNOUNCE HIS COMING AND ENGAGE IN PRELIMINARY ACTIVITIES FOR THAT COMING. This is a major religious obligation that all believers have to fulfill.
