The Characteristics of the Companions of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) (2014-04-13 01:47:43)
It is evident that the appointment of an individual is made solely on the basis of the work and its aim. The qualification of an engineer is taken into consideration if a small house has to be constructed. But if a bigger project has to be undertaken, then the engineer will have to be more capable and qualified. And if one has to draft a plan for an entire nation then the qualifications of the engineer and others responsible for its implementation will be at a totally different level. In the last scenario, the utility of each and every individual will be minutely scrutinized as the responsibil
Role of Women in the Government of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) (2014-04-13 01:45:17)
The Reason for Imam-e-Zaman's Long ageBy: Hojjat al-Islam Mahdi Hadavi TehraniQuestion: Why wasn't Imam al-Zaman's birth postponed to the era of his re-emergence (zuhur)? Brief AnswerThe answer to this question can be clarified by expounding the underlying philosophy of the occultation and the waiting for his reemergence, as well as by becoming aware of the advantages and blessings that benefit us from his existence even as he is in occultation. On the one hand it is said that among the reasons for his occultation is that he not be burdened by anyone's allegiance, or that he is secure from a
Virtues of Imam Mahdi (A.S.), The Imam of the Last and Final Age (2014-04-13 01:44:26)
Since his occultation occurred in early childhood itself, he did not get the opportunity to express his intellectual capabilities. However, his written epistles issued from behind the curtain of occultation show that the source of his knowledge was also the same as that of the other Imams. The proof that his knowledge is divinely gifted is that all his four special deputies were unsurpassed scholars of their times. Whenever they required the solution of a difficult problem they used to refer to Imam-e-Zamana (a.s) and obtain satisfactory replies.Whatever we have mentioned above regarding the i
Worship of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) (2014-04-13 01:43:24)
Since the age of five he used worship the Almighty. During the period of Minor occultation (Ghaibat Sughra) when his special deputies had the honor of visiting him, they always found him engrossed in worship and prayers. Abul Hasan Ali Ibne Muhammad as-Saymoori relates: One day I came to Imam (a.s) and said, "O son of the Messenger (S)! Whenever I have the honor to be in your presence, I find you busy in worship?" Imam (a.s) replied, "Then what else do you expect from me? O Abul Hasan! People are created for this only. That they spend their lives in Allah's remembrance."We have dealt very brie

What does our Occulted Imam expect the Shias to do during his Ghaybat (occultation)? (2014-04-07 21:18:40)
In a letter he wrote to Shaikh al-Mufid, where he acknowledged his merit and being pleased with him, the Imam prayed for the success of the Shias in obeying Allah. He then writes: "If our Shia, may Allah give them success to His obedience, unite together by the hearts in fulfilling the covenant that they were trusted with, the grace of meeting us would not have been delayed for them; and happiness would have reached them quickly by witnessing us." The message our Imam conveys is that if his devotees unite together by the souls and hearts based on the bond of Wilayah which exist between them, t

The Doctrine of Mahdiism and its Impact from the Standpoint of Anthropology and Sociology (2014-03-18 02:22:24)
Abstract: The doctrine of Mahdiism, a religious tenet and teaching, is the core of the Shi`i culture and enjoys the potentiality to speculate about the solutions for social and individual problems in both the ages of occultation and appearance, so that on the base of this doctrine, there can be certain strategic solutions in anthropological and sociological domains. Interpretation of the religion by this doctrine is a standpoint which presents a deep comment on other features and precepts of the religion. It is, indeed, a feature of the religion by means of which other divisions are approache
Imam Al-Mahdi Al-Muntadhar (a.s) part 4 (2014-03-16 22:34:08)
Miracles are certainly not impossible nor can they be negated through scientific arguments. It can never be proved that the causes and agents that are functioning in the world are solely those that we see and know and that other causes which we do not know or whose effects and actions we have not seen nor understood do not exist. It is in this way possible that in one or several members of mankind there can be operating certain causes and agents which bestow upon them a very long life of a thousand or several thousand years. Medicine has not even lost hope of discovering a way to achieve very

A Glance at the Translator's Introduction The translation of this important book would have been impossible without the need on my part to respond to those who have attributed to me false notions and ideas which are neither part of my personal faith nor of my academic research. At no point have I entertained, even in error, opinions that cannot be ascertained in the written primary sources of the Twelver Shiism. Every piece of document used to write my academic research is meticulously investigated and critically evaluated in the light of the teachings of the Qur'an and the authentic traditio
Middle Resurrection - Al-Raj'ah or the return of selected dead persons to life (2014-03-16 22:31:26)
"Or (bethink thee of) the like of him who, passing by a township which had fallen into utter ruin, exclaimed: How shall Allah give this township life after its death? And Allah made him die a hundred years, then brought him back to life. He said: How long hast thou tarried? (The man) said: I have tarried a day or part of a day. (He) said: Nay, but thou hast tarried for a hundred years. Just look at thy food and drink which have not rotted! Look at thine ass! And, that We may make thee a token unto mankind, look at the bones, how We adjust them and then cover them with flesh! And when (the mat
The Mahdi in Muslim Traditions (Part 1) (2014-03-16 22:30:29)
With the exception of a small Salafi group, both the Caliphate and Imamte schools of thought believe in the coming of the Mahdi before End times. The Hadiths from the Prophet in this respect are too numerous and authenticated enough to defy. A slight difference however exits regarding whether the Mahdi was born or he will be born in the future. Without being able to justify/identify the twelve rightful Caliphs, the Caliphate school followers sometimes raise feeble objections concerning the Imam's long life, the purpose of his occultation, and the like. Such objections cannot withstand any cri
The Mahdi in Muslim Traditions (Part 2) (2014-03-16 22:29:29)
Concluding Remarks 1. The Book of Allah in its written form makes the universal message of Islam fairly known to the Muslims/non-Muslims who can read Arabic with understanding. Exhorting the believers to reach a higher understanding, Allah expects them to ponder at the deeper meaning of His last message to mankind. At this higher level, Muslim scholars have put excellent efforts to elucidate the deeper meanings of the Qur'an's verses. Voluminous books were written for what is called Tafseer, i.e. interpretation. When it comes to the meanings intended by Allah, they are inaccessible except to
Dua for The Twelfth Imam (A.J) (2014-03-16 09:14:40)
This is a Du"a for the protection of the 12th Imam al-Mahdi (as). It is recommended that believers recite it often during the ghaybat of the Imam. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. O Allah, be, for Your representative, the Hujjat (proof), son of Al¬Hasan, Your blessings be on him and his forefathers, in this hour and in every hour, a guardian, a protector, a leader, a helper, a proof, and an eye. until You make him live on the earth, in obedience (to You), and cause him to live in it for a long time.

Birth of Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) (2014-03-16 09:13:30)
as follows: "One day, I went to Imam Hassan al-Askari (a.s.). He (a.s.) requested me, ‘Aunt, Stay with us tonight because my successor will appear.' I asked, ‘From whom?' He (a.s.) answered, ‘Narjis'. I reasoned, ‘But I don't see any signs of pregnancy in her!' He retorted, ‘Her likeness is of the mother of Hazrat Moosa (a.s.) who did not have any signs of motherhood till the actual hour of delivery.' I and Narjis slept in one room. At midnight, I became busy in performing the midnight prayers. I said to myself, ‘Dawn is near but whatever Imam Askari (a.s.
The Length of al-Mahdi"s Life (2014-03-16 09:10:14)
We believe that the lengthening of a man"s life is not an impossibility, because it is explicitly said in the Qur"an that: "We sent Nuh to his people, as he tarried among them a thousand years, all but fifty. " (XXIX; 14) What is more, research undertaken in the biological sciences has corroborated the possibility of lengthening the human life-span. Even great scientists are of the opinion that food and drugs may be prepared which can prolong man"s life. The late Ayatullah Sadr (A learned scholar of Qom (1882-1953), father of the well-known Imam Musa-Sadr of the Lebanon.) in his book "al-Mah
Terminology of the Mahdiism Doctrine (2014-03-16 09:08:18)
Some religious or philosophical concepts are pivotal, and are interpreted in a particular way as Doctrine. For instance, 'Dukkha' ("Suffering" or "sorrow") in Buddhism is so important that is called 'the Doctrine of Dukkha or the Doctrine of Buddha'; or 'Maya' ("imaginary world") is a fundamental concept in Hindu phi¬losophy, which construes as 'the Doctrine of Maya'.6 Mahdiism is one of the tenets, which is of high significance in Islam. It is in conformity with 'Soteriology', 'Salvation', and 'Millenarianism', presented in other religions. The notion of salvation and Mahdavi global gove
The Promised Imam Mahdi (a) (2014-03-15 21:04:25)
"What Remains with Allah is better for you if you are believers (11:86)" The Birth of the Imam (A.S): Al Hujjat ibn Al -Hassan Al - Mahdi (as) the 12th divine leader of Islam was born on dawn, Friday the 15th of Shaaban 255 AH correspondent to 868 AD in the house of the 11th Imam (as) in the city of Samerrah (Iraq). His honorable father is Imam Hassan Al-Askari (as), and his modest mother was the daughter of Caesar's son, Joshua, and from the generation of Samoan one of Jesus' apostles.

The Qualities of Human Society after the Re-Appearance of Imam Mahdi A.S part 2 (2014-03-12 23:01:23)
In describing the time of Imam al-Mahdi's (A.S) rule, the Prophet (PBUH) has said, "People will be searching for someone poor who would accept charity or gifts from them, to no avail; they will put aside the zakat of their wealth, but they will not find anyone to give it to, for all will be made well-off by Allah grace."‌   After Imam al-Mahdi (A.S) establishes his rule, will there be any oppressors remaining in power? The character trait of the universal rule of Imam al-Mahdi (A.S) will be the worldwide maintenance of peace, security, justice, and the annihilation of the foundati
