Imam Mahdi will come near the Day of Judgement. His name will be Muhammad. His
mother's name will be Aminah and his father's name will be Abdullah. His title will be Al-Mahdi. Imam Mahdi will be from Fatimah's
[RA] generation, which was the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Imam Mahdi will also be from Hasan's [RA] generation (Muhammad sallal lahu alayhi wa sallams grandson.)
Imam Mahdi will be an excellent, just, and generous
ruler. His face will resemble to our Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Imam Mahdi will be born in Madina and will grow up there. When Imam Mahdi reaches the age
of forty, the king of the Muslims in Madina will die. Everyone will want Imam Mahdi to become King, but Imam Mahdi will not
want to become the king.
Imam Mahdi will go to Makkah and hide in a Muslim's
house, but the Muslims will look for him and find him. The Muslims will take him to the Ka'bah and will all start to bear
allegiance to him. When the Muslims will bear allegiance to him, a voice will be heard, "This is Allah's Khaleefah, so do
whatever he says." Everyone will hear this voice.
Imam Mahdi will then become the King, and he will
be very well known throughout the world. The King of Syria at that time will be envious of Imam Mahdi and will send an army
to try and overthrow him. When the army reaches the area between Makkah and Madina, the entire army will sink except for two
men. One man will go back to his King and tell him that the entire army has sunk. The other person will go to Makkah and tell
Imam Mahdi that they came with an army, but it sank into the ground. He will then bear allegiance to him.
When people find this out that Imam Mahdi's enemy
have sunk into the earth, he will become even better known and famous. This will happen at the time when the Christians will
govern the land between the area of Syria, and city Khaybar, in Arabia. Turkey will also be under Christian rule.
Imam Mahdi will gather an army together to fight
against the Christians. The king of Persia, (Iran) whose name will be Mansoor, will send a big army to help Imam Mahdi. When
the Christians, find out that the Muslims are getting together, they will gather their army from Rome, Arabia, and other lands,
and assemble in Syria. At this time, the Christian military will have seventy different flags. Under each flag there will
be twelve thousand soldiers. Imam Mahdi will move from Makkah to Madina. From there, he will go to Syria. The war between
both armies will take place near Damascus. One part of Imam Mahdi's army will run away, another part will be martyred, and
the third part will defeat the Christians under Imam Mahdi's leadership. Imam Mahdi will win the war, but many Muslims will
be martyred. After this Syrian war, Imam Mahdi will go with his army, to Istanbul and fight the non-Muslims there, with the
help of Allah.
After all this a day will come when Imam Mahdi
will hear the news that Dajjal has come. He will send five hundred people to find out if this news is true. When these people
return, they will say that this news is false. Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said that, these five hundred people will have the highest status in the world at that time.
When Imam Mahdi hears the news that the coming of the Dajjal is false, people will start living a better life, but after a
very short while, Dajjal will appear.
