Philosophy and Reason behind Occultation of Imam Zaman (A.J) (2014-04-13 21:43:16)
Discussion on occultation is a vast topic and traditions in this regard are many. what is necessary for us to know is the following:is there anyone to ask about the philosophy behind occultation and is there anyone who can say: since I do not know the reason behind occultation, I do not believe as you do in the existence of Mahdi and I further say: if as per what you say, Mahdi is the imam, then it is necessary for him to appear amongst the people and walk in the market-places!We say: concerning the numerous 'mustafiza' traditions which we previously mentioned and few more of which we shall in
The Occultation Of Imam Mahdi (A.S. (2014-04-13 21:42:15)
The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S.) said:"O Ali know that the most strangest of the people of Imaan and the greatest of them in certainty are those people who will be in Aakheruzzamaan (the last period of time). They will not meet the Prophet. And their Imam will be hidden from them. But they will believe (only) due to black upon white."(Kamaaluddin vol.1 Pg.288)The "black upon white" means the writings on paper. It means that these people will believe in the Quran and the sunnat as recorded in the books, even though they may not see their Imam (A.S.).Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (A.S.) said:"Certainty, the ma
The Special Deputies of Imam Mahdi(A.S.) (2014-04-13 21:40:15)
The first deputy - Hazrat Usman b.. Saeed-e-Amri (r.a.)Hazrat Usman b. Saeed (r.a.) was the first special deputy of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) in Ghaibat-e-Sughra. The renowned Shiite scholar, Shaikh Muhammad b. Hasan Tusi (r.a.) records in his illustrious book, 'Ghaibat' - Among the companions that the infallible Imams (a.s.) considered as virtuous and pious, was Hazrat Usman b. Saeed-e-Amri (r.a.). Imam Ali Naqi, Al Hadi (a.s.) and Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.) have spoken highly of him and he was their mosttrusted companion."(Ghaibat-e-Shaikh-e-Tusi, pg. 353)His name and titleUsman was his name and h
How Long Will the Hidden Imam Live? (2014-04-13 01:53:25)
Dr. Jalali: How Long Will the Hidden Imam Live?Mr. Hoshyar: The term of his life has not been fixed. But the hadith reported on the authority of the Imams introduce him as the one endowed with a long life. For instance, Imam Hasan `Askari related:After me my son is the Qa'im. He is the one in whom two characteristics of the ancient prophets, namely, long life and occultation, will be realized. His occultation will be so much prolonged that the hearts of the people will become hard and dark [with doubt]. Only those who receive God's special favor and whose hearts are made unwavering and who are
Meaning of the Title Imam Zamana (A.S.) (2014-04-13 01:51:30)
A title reflects the personality of man. His characteristics and qualities are projected through it.Nowadays such instances are extremely numerous where this dictum rarely comes true. The titles are some times promiscuous bestowed without knowing the actual meaning by the patrons and by the patronized which is out of context here.The Prophets of God are familiar by the titles added with their names which throw light on their prolity and innate qualities endowed in them by the creator. The prophet Moses (A.S.) is addressed as "Kaleem-Ullah" as he had conversation with the Creator of the world,
Imam Mahdi (A.S.) in Sihah Sitah (2014-04-13 01:50:38)
The belief in Imam Mahdi (A.S.) has been a topic of debate since the very inception of Islam. Most of the Islamic scholars are so deeply drowned in the pit of prejudice that they deny the existence of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) in its entirety. They assert that it is an idea fabricated by the Shias which has no origin either in Quran or in Prophetic traditions and is an unfounded belief. As far as Quran is concerned, time and again in several articles of we have proved the point. God-willing in this article we shall try to prove the holy existence of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) from the Prophetic tra
Imam Mahdi (A.S.) and the Wahabbis (2014-04-13 01:49:45)
After propounding the Qur'an and traditional arguments there remains no doubt amongst the Muslims, irrespective of his religion either Sunni, Shiite, Wahabi or non-Wahabi, regarding the belief in imam al-Mahdi (a.s.) and it is proved beyond doubt that it is a genuine Islamic belief, but since the Wahabi sect is having a very narrow-minded belief about some of the concepts of Islam hence from its very inception, it has been a butt of rebuke from the Muslim scholars, therefore we analyze in this brief study Wahabis point of view about imam al-Mahdi (a.s). Infact the following proofs will clarify
Birth of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) in the Ahle Sunnah (2014-04-13 01:48:48)
A number of traditions have been narrated from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) of Islam and the truthful Imams of Ahle-bayt (a.s.), regarding the uprising of Qaem-al-Mahdi towards the end of this world and his overthrowing the unjust and tyrant rulers and filling the earth with justice and fair play.Hence the unjust Abbasi caliphs were very much afraid of the uprising of Qaem al Mahdi, They utilized their entire resources to finish him. Ten years before the birth of Hazrat Mahdi (ATFS), the then caliph called his grandfather Imam Ali Naqi (a.s.) from Medina to capital Samarrah so that a close watc
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
