Imam Mahdi

Among the many signs that would occur before the final Day of Judgment and prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) include the coming of Imam Mahdi. Imam Mahdi will be the descendant of Prophet Muhammad and will materialize to free the Muslims from oppressive rulers. He will unite the Muslims, free them form oppression, bring peace and justice to the world, rule the Arabs, and lead a prayer in Makkah in which Prophet Isa (AS) will be present. There are many ahadith by Prophet Muhammad (saw) that prophesize about the time and events related to Imam Mahdi.

 “The world will not pass away before the Arabs are ruled by a man (referring to Mahdi) of my family whose name will be the same as mine” (Abu Dawud).

 “Allah will bring out from concealment al-Mahdi from my family and just before the day of Judgment; even if only one day were to remain in the life of the world, and he will spread on this earth justice and equity and will eradicate tyranny and oppression.”
(Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Vol. 1, P. 99)

“The promised Mahdi will be among my progeny, among the descendants of Fatima.” (Abu Dawud, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 207; Ibn Majah, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 519)

“Al Mahdi will be from my progeny. His forehead will be broad and his nose will be high. He will fill the world with justice and fairness at a time when the world will be filled with oppression. He will rule for seven years.
