0319 A. Al Mahdi's Lineage,  Physical Appearance and Characteristics



1. Prophet Muhammad, praise and peace be upon him, said :
“Al Mahdi is (descended) from me. His forehead will be radiant, and his nose prominent. He will fill the earth with both fairness and justice just as it will have been filled by oppression and injustice, and he will govern for seven years.”

2. “... so a man will come to him saying: ”O Mahdi, give me, give me!” So he will fill his clothes with as much as he can carry.”

B. The State of the World before his Advent:
3. “The Hour will not occur until the ground has been filled with injustice and transgressions. Then, a man from the Family of my House will come and fill it with fairness and justice just as it was filled by harm and oppression.”

4. “At the end of my nation Al Mahdi will come for whom Allah will send rain so that the earth produces its plants. He will give wealth equally; cattle will increase and the nation will be great. He will live for seven or eight.”

5. “ ... so a man from my pure musked children will govern for seven or nine ...”

C. A Stern Trial
6. “At the end of Time a stern trial from their governor will come upon my nation - never before will they have heard of a trial such as it. The wide earth will shrink before them and the earth will become full of oppression and injustice so that believers find no refuge from harm. So, Allah, the Mighty, the Purified will send a man from my pure musked descendants who will fill the earth with fairness and justice, just as it was filled by oppression and injustice. The inhabitants of Heaven and Earth will be pleased with him. The earth will not withhold any of its seed -- all will be produced. Nor will the Heaven withhold any of its showers except that Allah pours it upon them in abundance. And he will live among them seven, eight or nine years; the dead will wish for life because of that! Allah, the Mighty, the Glorified will give the inhabitants of the earth from His Goodness.”

7. “At the end of Time, a Caliph will come who distributes wealth without count.”

D. AL MAHDI AND JERUSALEM
8. “A man from my nation will come who speaks with my Sunnah and Allah, the Mighty, the Glorified will send showers of rain from the heavens so that the earth will produce its blessing. Through him the earth will be filled with fairness and justice just as it had been filled by oppression and injustice. He will govern this nation for seven years, and go to Jerusalem.”

9. “I bear good tidings for you concerning Al Mahdi. He will be sent when people differ and the earth quakes!”

E. Distribution of Wealth
10. “He will fill the earth with fairness and justice just as it had been filled by oppression and injustice. The inhabitants of the heavens and earth will be pleased with him. He will distribute wealth equally.” At this point a companion asked what ‘equally’ meant so the Prophet replied:“Equally, between the people, and Allah will fill the hearts of the nation of Muhammad with richness and his justice will satisfy them until he sends a messenger saying: “Who is in need of wealth?” None except one man will stand and say, “Me.” So he will say: “Go to the treasurer and tell him that Al Mahdi orders you to give me wealth.” So the treasurer will say to him: “Fill with your hands!” And he will put it in his clothing then tie it. Then he will become contrite and say: “I was the most greedy among the nation of Muhammad”, and he will attempt to return it but it will not be accepted, and it will be said to him:
“We do not accept what we have given.” And so he (Al Mahdi) will remain seven, eight or nine years -- then, there is no goodness left in life nor yet in living after him.”

The preceding narrations were reported by Abi Said Al Khudri in the reference of Abi Dawood, Al Hakim, At-Tirmizi, Ahmad, ibn Hibban, Muslim, Al Tabarani (in his middle dictionary), Al Barudi and Abu Nuaym in his forty Hadith concerning Al Mahdi.


F. The Certainty of his Appearance:
11. “Even if there remained only one day left to be lived
Allah will prolong that day until He sends a man from me. His name is like my name, and his father's name is like my father's name. He will fill the earth with fairness and justice just as it was filled by oppression and injustice.”

12. “The days will not end and life will not vanish until the Arabs are governed by a man from the Family of my House -- his name is the same as mine.”


G. The Importance of Following Al Mahdi
13. Ibn Masood reported: “We went to the Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, and he came out with good news -- and happiness was easily recognizable upon his face. When we asked him about a matter he would tell us about it,
and we were never silent about anything until he spoke of it, until a party from the Bani Hashim passed by amongst whom were Al Hasan and Al Hussain, peace be upon them. When he saw them he hugged them with tears in his eyes, so we asked: “O Messenger of Allah, we see something has changed your face which distresses us.” Thereupon he replied: “We are a Family of a House for whom Allah has chosen the Hereafter rather than the present. After me my family will be refugees, driven out of countries until the Black Banners are raised in the East. They will ask for the truth but they will not be given it, so they will ask again for it, and they will not be given it, so they will fight and be given victory. Those of you or your descendants who live during that time go to the Imam of the Family of my house even if you have to crawl over ice to him. Indeed, they are banners of guidance. They will deliver it to a man from the Family of my House his name is the same as my name, and the name of his father is the same as my father, and he will fill the ground with fairness and justice.”

This hadith is in found in the references of Abu Dawood, Al Hakim, At-Tirmizi, Ibn Hibban, Ibn Majhah, Au Ash-Shaykh, Ibn Adiy, Abu Dhabi, Ibn Asakir and Abu Nuaym.

H. Return of Justice
14. Prophet Muhammad, praise and peace be upon him, said:
“If only one day in life remains, Allah will send a man from the Family of my House. He will fill the earth with justice just as it has been filled by injustice.”

15. “Al Mahdi is from the family of the House Allah will ‘yuslihu’ him in a night.”

I. Unification of Muslims
16. “He is from us - as Allah opened with us, so He will close, and with us they will be saved from polytheism. And with us Allah arbitrates between the hearts after open hostility
as He arbitrates between their hearts after the hostility of polytheism.” Ali asked: “Are they believers or unbelievers?” He answered: “Some are on trial and others are unbelievers.”

J. Warning:
17. “At the end of Time there will be a trial in which people will be sorted in a way similar to that in which gold is sorted from metal.”

18. “So do not rebuke the people of Syria but rebuke the evil people among them because amongst them is Al Abdal. A flood is about to be sent down upon the people of Syria which will disperse their groups in such a way that if foxes attacked they would be beaten. At that time a man from the Family of my House will come under three banners; between twelve and fifteen thousand and their password is - ‘Die, die.’ Then, there will come seven banners and under each will be one man seeking the kingdom. Allah will kill all of them and restore unity and favors upon the hearts of Muslims, and those who were far come close.”

The preceding hadith was reported by Imam Ali in the references of Ahmad, Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah and At-Tabarani.

K. Children of Lady Fatima, may Allah be pleased with her and them
19. “Al Mahdi is from my pure musked descendants from the children of Fatima.”

20. “Yes, he is the truth, and he is from the children of Fatima.”

L. When and Where Al Mahdi is given Allegiance
21. “Differences will occur after the death of a caliph and a man from the people of Medina will escape to Mecca. Then, some of the people of Mecca will come to him and drag him out against his desire and give him their allegiance between Ar-Rukn and Al Makam. An army will be sent against him from Syria that will be swallowed up in Al Bayda - desert between Mecca and Medina. When people see this the Abdal of Syria will come to him as well as a group of people from Iraq and pledge their allegiance between Ar-Rukn and Al Makam. Then a man from the Koraysh will come whose cousins are from Kalb, and he will send an army to them that will overcome them and this will become known as the Battle of Kalb. Whosoever does not witness the spoils of war from Kalb is lost! And he (Al Mahdi) will distribute wealth and practice the Sunnah of their Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, with the people. And Islam will spread throughout the earth. He will remain seven years then die, and the believers will pray for him.”

This hadith was reported by Lady Ummu Salamah, wife of the Prophet, Mother of the Believers, may Allah be pleased with her, and is found in the references of Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah, Al Hakim, Ibn Hibban and At-Tabarani.

M. The Black Banners
22. “Before your treasure, three will kill each other -- all of them are sons of a different caliph but none will be the recipient. Then the Black Banners will appear from the East and they will kill you in a way that has never before been done by a nation.” Thawban, a companion said: “Then he said something that I do not remember by heart” then continued to say that the Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, said:
“If you see him give him your allegiance, even if you have to crawl over ice, because surely he is the Caliph of Allah, Al Mahdi. If you see the Black Banners coming from Khurasan go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice, because indeed amongst them is the Caliph, Al Mahdi.”

23. “The Black Banners will come to you from the East, their hearts are like iron. Whosoever hears about them let them go crawling -- even over ice!”   
The preceding Hadith was reported by Thawban and is found in the references of Ibn Majah, Al Busiri, Al Hakim, Ahmad, Nuaym, Ad-Daylami, Al Hasan, son of Sufyan, and Abu Nuaym.

N. The Government of Al Mahdi:
24. “People will come from the East and will establish the government for Al Mahdi.”

Reported by Abdullah son of Al Harth and is found in the references of Ibn Majah and At-Tabarani in his middle dictionary.

25. “If only one night remains in the world, a man will come from the House of the Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, who will govern it.”

26. “Al Mahdi will be in my nation for at least seven (years) or eight or ten, and my nation will enjoy favors which it has never enjoyed before. The heavens will send an abundance of rain, the earth will not store any seed, rather it will yield all its fruits. There will be a surplus of wealth but a man will stand up and say:
“O give me,” so he will be told “Take.”

27. “The Hour will not occur until a man from the Family of my House comes. He will beat them until they return to the truth.”

28. It was asked: “How long will he govern?” Whereupon he answered “Five plus two.”

O. Constantinople/Istanbul and the Mountain of Al-Daylam
29. “If there only remains but one day left in the world, Allah will prolong it until a man from my house governs. He will open Constantinople and the Mountain of Al-Daylam.”

30. “A man named As-Sufyani will come from the center of Damascus. The majority of his followers will be from the tribe of Kalb. He will kill until he rips women open and kills children. So the tribe of Kays will rise up in retaliation and he will slaughter all of them! Then a man from the Family of my House will come in Al Hirrah and the news will reach As-Sufyani. Then he will send his army but it will suffer defeat. As-Sufyani will march with his followers to him until they reach a desert and the ground will swallow them up. None will be saved except the one bearing the news.”

P. The Emergence of the False Messiah
31. “The Romans will surround a leader from my pure musked children. His name will be the same as mine. They will fight each other at a place called Al Imak and one third, or thereabouts, of the Muslims will be killed. They will fight again on another day and again one third or thereabouts of the Muslims will be killed. On the third day they will fight again and the Romans will be defeated. And they will remain there until they open Constantinople. It is whilst they are distributing the spoils of war that a messenger will come informing them that the false messiah is in their home town with their children.”

Reported by Abu Hurayrah in the reference of Ibn Hibban, At-Tirmizi, Abuya'li, At-Tabarani, Al Bazaar, Abu Nuaym and Al Hakim.

Q. Dwellers of Paradise
32. “We are the children of Abd Al Muttalib, the Masters of the Dwellers of Paradise myself, Hamza, Ali, Jafar, Al Hasan, Al Hussain and Al Mahdi.”

33. “An Army from the Direction of Iraq When the Holy Prophet, praise and peace be upon him,
slept in the house of Lady Ummu Salamah he awoke saying:
“There is no movement or power except from Allah.”
“What makes you say that?” asked Lady Umm Salamah. He replied: “Because an army will come from the direction of Iraq to seize a man from Al Medina whom Allah protects. When they reach the desert in the direction of Dhi Hulayfah the ground will swallow them up. Those that are on top cannot reach those beneath, and those beneath cannot reach those on top up until the Day of Judgement. Their motivations are different.” Lady Umm Salamah then asked: “O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, how is it that they will be swallowed up although their motives are different?” He replied: “Among them are those that have been coerced to join.”

This Hadith was reported by Anas and is found in the references of Ibn Majah, Al Busiri and Al Bazaar.

34. “At the end of my nation a Caliph will scatter wealth without count.”
When the second narrator, Abi Nadrah, was asked if this referred to Caliph Omar Abdul Aziz, he replied: “No.”

R. The Coming of Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him
35. “Jesus, the son of Mary, peace be upon him, will descend when the prince is Al Mahdi and Al Mahdi will say to Jesus:
“Come, lead us in prayer.” But he will decline saying:
“You are princes over each other which is the Favor of Allah to this nation.”
“A group from my nation will keep fighting for the truth until Jesus, the son of Mary descends at dawn in the Mosque of Jerusalem. He will approach Al Mahdi who will say:
“O Prophet of Allah, come, lead us in prayer.” But he will decline saying:
“This nation has princes over each other.”

The two preceding Hadiths were reported by Jabir, son of Abdullah, and are found in the references of Muslim, Abu Nuaym, Abu Amru Ad-Dani and Al Bazaar.

36. “If only one day remains in the world, Allah will send a man with a name like mine. His manners will be likened to my manners.”

S. The Tyranny of Kings
37. “Woe to this nation from the dictatorship of kings! Why do they kill and make pious people fear except those who obey them, and the pure believer soothes them with his tongue but resists them with his heart? If Allah wishes to revive Islam in might He will break the back of every stubborn tyrant -- He is Able to do anything and can reform the nation after its corruption. O Hudhayfah, if there remains but one day left in the world Allah will prolong that day until a man from the Family of my House will govern and fierce battles will be in his hands, and Islam will spread. Allah does not change His Promise and He is quick to recompense.”

T. Description of Al Mahdi
38. “Al Mahdi is a man from my children. His face is like a glittering star, his skin is the color of an Arab, and his body is like that of Israel. He will fill the earth with justice just as it will have been filled by injustice, and the dwellers of Heaven and Earth will be pleased with his Caliphate.”

39. “Al Mahdi is a man from my children his color is that of the Arab, and his body is like that of Israel. On his right cheek there is a mole that glitters like a star.”
40. “Al Mahdi will glance to the side as Jesus, the son of Mary descends with water dripping from his hair. So Al Mahdi will say to him: “Come forward and lead the people in prayer.” But he will answer: “The Call to Prayer has been made for you to lead.” So he will pray behind a man from my children.”

U. The Worst Creation of Allah
41. “There will be a battle at Az Zawra which is a city in the east among rivers. It is inhabited by the worst creations of Allah and the tyrant of my nation. It will be subjected to four kinds of chastisement -- the sword, swallowing-up, missiles, and transformation.”

V. Battles
42. “When the dark people come after the Arabs they will be defeated and thrown into the lowest part of the earth. While these circumstances exist, As-Sufyani will come with three hundred and sixty riders until he reaches Damascus. After a month, he will be followed by thirty-thousand from Kalb, so he will send an army to Iraq and kill a hundred thousand in Az-Zawra. Then they will go to Kufa and pillage. When this occurs a banner will come from the east led by a man from Tamim called Shuayb, the son of Salih who will restore what is in their hands from the captured people of Kufa and he will kill them. Then, another army from As-Sufyani will go to Al Medina and pillage it for three days and thereafter proceed towards Mecca until they find themselves in a desert. Then, Allah will send Gabriel and say to him, “Chastise them!” So he will beat them with his leg once and Allah will cause them to be swallowed up. None will remain except two men who will return to As-Sufyani to inform him of the swallowing-up of his army, but this will not scare him. Several men from the Koraysh will escape to Constantinople and As-Sufyani will send to the leader of the Romans who will return them to him and he will slit their throats together with their followers. At that time a voice will come from Heaven saying:
“O people, surely Allah prevents dictatorship, tyrants and their followers for you and gives leadership to the best of the nation of Muhammad. So join him in Mecca -- he is Al Mahdi!” Then, Hudhayfah asked: “O Messenger of Allah, how shall we know him?” He replied: “He is a man from my children, he looks like the men from the children of Israel, upon him are two white cloaks with frayed edges. His face is like a colorful, glittering star, upon his right cheek there is a black mole and he is forty years old. Al Abdal and those looking like them will come to him from Syria. An-Nujaba will come to him from the dwellers of Egypt and groups of dwellers from the east, and those looking like them until they all gather together in Mecca and so they will pledge their allegiance to him between Al Rukn and Al Makam. Then he will direct himself towards Syria with Gabriel at his front and Michael at his middle and the dwellers of Heaven and Earth will be joyful because of him. Water will be plentiful in his country and the river will be spread and treasures found. When he reaches Syria he will slay As-Sufyani under the tree, the branches of which grow in the direction of Lake Tiberias and he will kill Kalb. So the loser of that Day of Kalb is he who does not gain even a rein." Hudhayfah asked:
“O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, how is it permitted to kill them when they believe in the Oneness?” The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, replied:
“O Hudhayfah, they are at that time apostates, they claim that wine is permitted and do not pray.”

The preceding Hadiths were narrated by Hudhayfah and are found in the references of Abu Nuaym, At-Tabarani, and Abu Amru Ad Dani.

W. Caliphs, Princes, Kings and Tyrants
43. “After me there will be caliphs, and after the caliphs, princes and after princes, kings, and after kings, tyrants. Then, a man from the Family of my House will come and fill the earth with justice just as it had been filled with transgression. Then, the Prince after him is Al Kahtani and by He who sent me with the Truth he is not lesser than him.”

This hadith was reported by Jabir, son of Majid As Sadafi in the references of At-Tabarani (in his large dictionary), Ibn Mandah, Abu Nuaym and Ibn Asakir.

X. Al Hasan and Al Hussain
44. “The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, said to his daughter, Lady Fatima, peace be upon her: "Our Prophet is the best of the Prophets and he is your father. Our martyr is the best of the martyrs and he is your father's uncle Hamza and amongst us is he that has two wings with which he will fly in Paradise wherever he wishes, and he is the son of your father's uncle Jafar and from us are the two subt of this nation -- Al Hasan and Al Hussain, and they are your children, and from us is Al Mahdi.”

This Hadith was reported by Abi Ayyub Al Ansari in the reference of At-Tabarani.

45. “A nation will not be destroyed when I am at their beginning, and Jesus, the son of Mary, is at its end and Al Mahdi is in the middle.”
In an another narration:
“And Al Mahdi from my House at its middle.”

Reported by Ibn Abbas in the references of Abu Nuaym, Al Hakim and Ibn Asakir

Y. When the Desert Swallows the Army
46. “People will come from the east to seize a man by the House. When they are in the desert of the earth it will swallow them and when those who were delayed reach it the same thing will happen to them.” Lady Ummu Habibah asked: “O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, what about those who were coerced into joining them?” He replied: “What happened to the others will happen to them also, then Allah will assemble each one according to his intention.”

Reported by Lady Ummu Habibah, peace be upon her, and found in the reference of At-Tabarini.

Z. When Medina Shakes Thrice
47. “The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, spoke to us
mentioning the false messiah until he said: “… Al Medina and its people will shiver thrice, so that neither female or male hypocrite remain (therein) and they will go to him (the false messiah). It (Al Medina) will cast out its dirt as a fire casts rust from iron and this day will be called “The Day of Salvation.” Umm Sharik inquired: “Where will the Arabs be on that day?” He replied: “There will be a few on that day, most of them will be in the House of Jerusalem and their leader, Al Mahdi, is a good man. When he steps forward to lead them in the Dawn prayer, Jesus, the son of Mary will descend during that time so the Imam will step backward in order for Jesus to come forward but he will say to him:
“Go forward and pray, because it has indeed been established for you.” So he will lead them in prayer as an Imam.

Reported by Ibn Abi Umamah Al Bahili and found in the references of At-Tabarani, Ibn Khuzaymah, Abu Awanah, Al Hakim, Abu Nuaym, and Al Rawyani.

AA. When Pilgrims will be Robbed
48. “In the month of Dhil Kidah, the tribes will start to fight and pilgrims will be robbed. There will be a fierce battle at Minan until their companion escapes and he will be pledged allegiance between Al Rukn and Al Makam whilst he dislikes it. The allegiance will be pledged by the same number of fighters at Badr and the inhabitants of the Heaven and Earth will be pleased with him.”

Reported by Abdullah son of Amru and found in the references of Al Hakim, Nuaym ibn Hammad's book Al Fitan.

49. The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, said to Lady Fatima, peace be upon her, ”Bear good tidings, Al Mahdi is from you.”

AB. The Hidden Treasures of Antioch
50. I said, “O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, I have never seen a Roman city like the city of Antioch and I have never seen more rain than it has.” Whereupon the Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, said:
“Yes, that is because the Torah, Staff of Moses, Tablets, and the Table of Solomon, the son of David are in its caves. There is not a single cloud that comes from any direction to it that does not pour its blessing in that valley. And the days and night will not pass until a man from my musked children live in it. His name is like my name and his father’s name is like my father’s name; his manners are like my manners. He will fill the world with fairness and justice just as it had been filled by harm and transgressions.”
Reported by Tamin Ad-Dari, in the reference of Ibn Hibban Ad-Du'fa.

AC. Pure, Musked Children
51. “Al Mahdi is a man from my pure, musked children. He will fight with the guidance of my Sunnah as I fought with the guidance of the Revelation.”

AD. The March Against Al Mahdi
52. “Wandering is for the people of my nation who aim to the House trying to seize a man from the Koraysh that is supported by the House until they reach a desert and are swallowed up.” We asked: “O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, the road gathers different people.” Whereupon he replied: “Yes, among them are the weak sighted walking, looking around them, and those that are forced as well as those having no home. They will be destroyed in one way and assembled in different places and Allah will resurrect them according to their intentions.”

These two Hadiths were reported by Lady Ayesha, wife of the Prophet, Mother of the Believers, may Allah be pleased with her, and found in the references of Bukhari, Muslim and Nuaym ibn Hammad and Abu Ya'li.

Reported by Abd Ar Rahman ibn Awf in the reference of Abu Nuaym
  
AF. The Youth from Tamimi
54. The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, was among a group of migrants and supporters. Ali, the son of Abi Talib was on his left side and Abbas on his right side when Abbas and a man from the supporters started to debate with one another. The supporter spoke harshly to Abbas, then the Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, took the hand of Abbas and the hand of Ali and said:
“From the loins of this (indicating to Abbas) will come a youth who will fill the earth with transgression and injustice and from the loins of this (indicating to Ali) a man who will fill the earth with fairness and justice. If you see this pay attention to the Tamimi youth who will come from the direction of the east -- he is the owner of the Banner of Al Mahdi.”

55. “Al Mahdi will come upon his Banner and the herald will proclaim:
“This is Al Mahdi, the Caliph of Allah so follow him!”

These two Hadiths were reported by Abdullah, the son of Omar ibn Al Khattab and found in the references of At-Tabarani, Abu Nuaym, Al Kidji and Al Khatib.


AG. The Trial

“Your Prince is so and so!” (referring to Al Mahdi).

Reported by Talha ibn Ubayd and found in the reference of At-Tabarani.

AH. Some of the Prophet's Last Words to Lady Fatima
57. I entered to (visit) the Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, during his last illness before he died and found Fatima, peace be upon her, near his head crying. The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, raised his eyes to (look at) her and asked:
“O Fatima, what makes you cry?” She replied: “I fear the loss after you.” Whereupon he said: “Don’t you know that Allah, the Mighty, the Glorified looked to the earth once and chose your father and sent him with His Message, then He looked once to the earth and chose your husband and revealed to me that I should let you marry him? O Fatima, we are the Dwellers of a House and Allah has given us seven merits which He never gave to anyone else before ... By He who sends me with the Truth, amongst both of them is Al Mahdi of this nation. When life is full of murder and strife, and trials increase, and roads are blocked (by thieves), and people start attacking one another, and when the elderly show no mercy to the young, and the young show no mercy to the elderly, Allah, the Mighty, the Glorified will send from them at the end of time one who will open the fortress of error and open hearts that have been sealed and repair the Religion as I established it in the beginning of time. And he will fill the world with justice just as it will have been filled by oppression.”

Reported by Ali, son of Ali Al Hillali and found in the reference of Abu Nuaym.

AI. Seventy-three Sects
58. “How will you be O Awf when this nation is divided into seventy-three sects. One sect will be in Paradise and the rest in Hell.” I asked: “When will this be O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him.” He answered saying: “When the police increase and slave girls take authority, and when the lambs (weak authorities) sit on the pulpit, and when the Koran is used as flutes and mosques decorated and the spoils of war manipulated, and the obligatory charity becomes an excessive debt, and trust is taken like spoils of war, and religious study is not for the Sake of Allah and when husbands obey their wives, and disobeys his mother, and banishes his father, and the last of this nation curses the beginning of it, and when the tribe is mastered by a deviator, and the leader of the nation is the worst of them and a man is treated generously to avoid his evil. Upon that day it will happen and men will run to Syria to the City of Damascus, which is one of the best cities in Syria that protects them from their enemy ...”  I asked: “Will Syria be opened?” He answered: “Yes, soon then after its opening the trials will start and a dark and dusty trial will come. Trials will follow one another until a man from the Family of my House called Al Mahdi comes. If you reach him, follow him and be among those who are guided.”

Reported by Awf ibn Malik Al Ashja'l in the reference of At Tabarani

AJ. The Purified Soul
59. “Surely, Al Mahdi will not come until the purified soul has been killed. When this occurs those in the Heaven and those on Earth will be angry. So people will come in a procession to Al Mahdi; like the procession of a bride to her husband on their wedding night, and he will fill the earth with fairness and justice and the earth will produce its plants and the heaven will pour its rain and my nation will enjoy his government and favors never before enjoyed.”

Reported by a companion who informed Mujahid and found in the reference of Ibn Abi Shaybah
