Prophet Muhammad(saw)said:"Who saves from among my nation 40 hadeeths from the Sunna I will be an intercessor for him on the day of judgement"AlKhisal Sheikh AlSadooq p.541

Imam Al Saadiq pbuh said:"3 Allah will not speak to them on the day of judgement and will not reward them and they will have a painful chastisement:Who claims to be an Imam and it wasn't for him, and who ((disbelieves in an Imam from Allah)), and who claims that both of them had a share in Islam." AlKafi v.1 p.373

Thanks to Sheikh Nathem Al Uqaily may Allah swt have mercy on him and bless him for his book on the 40 hadeeths.To tell you the truth there are more than 40 but inshAllah this will be enough to prove the existence of Imam Al Mahdi's progeny and Imams/Mahdyoon from his progeny.

As we know that the 12 Imams from Ali to Imam Al Mahdi a.s. have ranks that the 12 Mahdis after Imam Al Mahdi pbuh cannot be better than. So the question remains can we call the Mahdis Imams even if they were called Shias?

Let us look at what Ibraheem pbuh was called according to Imam Al Saadiq a.s.:

عن مولانا الصادق جعفر بن محمد ع أنه قال قوله عز و جل وَ إِنَّ مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ لَإِبْراهِيمَ أي إن إبراهيم عليه السلام من شية النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فهو من شيعة علي وكل من كان من شيعة علي فهو من شيعة النبي صلى الله عليهما وعلى ذريتهما الطيبي

Imam Sadiq (as) said: "Regarding the saying of Allah (swt) "Verily among his Shia was Ibrahim", Verily Ibrahim (as) is among the Shia of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him and his Progeny, He (Ibrahim) is among the Shia of Ali (as). And all those who are from among the Shia of Ali they are among the Shia of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him and his pure Progeny."

2:124
And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands, which he fulfilled: He said: "I will make thee an Imam to the Nations." He pleaded: "And also (Imams) from my offspring!" He answered: "But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers."

A shia of Ali a.s. Ibraheem's rank pbuh leads him to becoming an Imam.

Now for the 12 Mahdis or the Mahdis after Imam Al Mahdi a.s.

And about Abu Baseer said: "I told Al Sadiq, Ja'far Bin Mohammad (A.S), "O son of the Prophet, I once heard your father a.s saying that after the Qa'em there shall be twelve Imams", and then he corrected, "He actually said twelve Mahdis and not twelve Imams. They are from our followers (Shia), who shall call upon people to support us and identify our right." Kamal Al Din (Perfectionism of Religion) chapter 2, page 358.

وعن أبي بصير قال: (( قلت للصادق جعفر بن محمد (ع): يا ابن رسول إني سمعت من أبيك (ع) انه قال: يكون بعد القائم اثنا عشر إماماً. فقال إنما قال: اثنا عشر مهديا ًولم يقل اثنا عشر إماما ً ولكنهم قوم من شيعتنا يدعون الناس إلى موالاتنا ومعرفة حقنا )) كمال الدين 2/358.

From the Prophet of Allah pbuhap from Abdullah says: “…the Mahdi and the “Mansoor” and for those after them,there will be Imams who are Mahdis and Allah shall perform what He mentioned in His book,and by the tongue of the Prophet by His Strength and Might…” Sharh AlAkhbar Fe Fatha’el Al’A’ema Al’AT’haar from Numaan v.3 p.400 passed away 363 A.H

عن عبد الله بن عمر عن رسول الله ص أنه قال: ابشروا فيوشك أيام الجبارين أن تنقطع، ثم يكون بعدهم الجابر الذي يجبر الله به امة محمد ص، المهدي ثم المنصور
ثم عدد أئمة مهديين. شرح الأخبار للقاضي النعمان المغربي ج 3 ص 400



وما جاء في دعاء الإمام الرضا (ع) ـ الصحيح ـ للإمام المهدي في عصر الغيبة )) ... اللهم أعطه في نفسه وأهله وَوَلـَدِه وذريته وأمته وجميع رعيته ما تقر به عينه وتسر به نفسه وتجمع له ملك المملكات كلها... إلى ان يقول : اللهم صل على ولاة عهده والأئمة من بعده وبلغهم آمالهم وزد في آجالهم وأعز نصرهم ... )) مفاتيح الجنان ص618 جمال الأسبوع لأبن طاووس ص 309 ، مصباح المتهجد للطوسي ص409

The statement in the prayer of Imam Reza -the right-of Imam Mahdi in the era of emergence "O Allah Give him and his family and his son and his descendants and the nation, and all his subjects what pleases him... until he says: O Allah, bless the rulers of his era and Imams after him and reach to their hopes and make their live's longer and dear their victory." Mosbah Al-Motahajid for the Tusi page 409.


Habbah Al-Arni said: the Prince of the believers [pbuh] went out to Heera and said: “this will be joined to this” and he pointed with his hand to Kofa and Heera “until a cubit in between them will be sold in Dinars, and then in Heera a mosque shall be built which has 500 doors,the caliphate(successor) of the Qa’im [May God hasten his relief] shall pray in it, because the mosque of Kofa will be small for them and 12 Imams of justice will pray in it” – Bihar AlAnwar v.52 p.474, Tahtheeb AlAhkaam by Sheikh Al-Tosi v.3 p.245

وعن حبة العرني قال : خرج أمير المؤمنين (ع) إلى الحيرة فقال : لتصلن هذه بهذه وأومى بيده إلى الكوفة والحيرة حتى يباع الذراع فيما بينهما بدنانير وليبنين بالحيرة مسجداً له خمسمائة باب يصلي فيه خليفة القائم عجل الله فرجه لأن مسجد الكوفة ليضيق عنهم وليصلين فيه اثنا عشر إماماً عدلاً... الحديث )) التهذيب 3/253، معجم أحاديث الإمام المهدي 3 /112.


Imam Ritha pbuh said:"And peace and blessings upon your guardian(Imam Al Mahdi),and those who bear your promise and the Imams from his sons”Bihar AlAnwar v.99 p.114 v.52 p.20 Gaibat AlToosi p.186 Jamal AlIsboo p.301
: ( ... اللهم أعطه في نفسه وذريته وشيعته ورعيته وخاصته وعامته وعدوه وجميع أهل الدنيا ما تقر به عينه وتسر به نفسه ... إلى قوله (ع): وصل على وليك وولاة عهده والأئمة من ولده ومدّ في أعمارهم وزد في آجالهم وبلغهم أقصى آمالهم دنيا وآخرة ... ) غيبة الطوسي ص186 / جمال الأسبوع ص301 .


وعن الصادق (ع) قال في أحد الأدعية المشهورة (( اللهم كن لوليك القائم بأمرك محمد بن الحسن المهدي عليه وعلى آبائه أفضل الصلاة والسلام في هذه الساعة وفي كل ساعة ولياً وحافظاً وقائداً وناصراً ومؤيداً حتى تسكنه أرضك طوعاً وتمتعه فيها طولاً وعرضاً وتجعله وذريته من الأئمة الوارثين)) بحار الأنوار 49 /349 .
Imam Jaafar pbuh said:"O Allah be for your guardian,the one who rises with your matter Muhammad ibn Hassan, to his fathers peace and blessings in this hour and every hour,a patron,a protector,a leader,a victor,an evidence,and assistant,until you make him on earth be supported and make him enjoy its height and breadth and make for him an offspring Imams that inherit” Bihar Al Anwar v.49 p.349


The Duaa written in a notebook by Imam Mahdi and given to Yacoob bin Yousef Al-Tharrab Al-Ghassani, narrated in the book of Sheikh Al-Tosi: “In the name of Allah the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful… (he prayed upon all the 12 imams, till Imam Mahdi peace be upon him) :
“… O Allah give him and his progeny, and his Shia … what makes him pleased and delighted” … until he says: “O Allah, pray upon your supporter and upon his heirs apparent and the Imams of his sons and make their lives longer…”
(Ghaiba by Sheikh Al-Tosi p.273-280)

From the Prophet(saw)that he mentioned the Mahdi pbuh,and what Allah swt will give him from the blessings and conquering by his hand.So it was asked O Messenger of Allah all of that Allah swt will gather for him?He said:Yes.And what hasn't occured during his lifetime and his days,it shall occur during the times of the Imams after him from his offspring"Sharh Al Akhbar v.2 p.39
كتاب شرخ الاخبار ج2 ص 42
عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله، أنه ذكر المهدي عليه السلام، وما يجريه الله عزوجل من الخيرات والفتح على يديه. فقيل له: يارسول الله كل هذا يجمعه الله له ؟ قال: نعم. وما لم يكن منه في حياته وأيامه هو كائن في أيام الائمة من بعده من ذريته

وروي بهذه الاسناد عن الصادق (عليه السلام) عن أبيه الباقر (عليه السلام) قال: دخل سلمان الفارسي (عليه السلام)، والمقداد بن الأسود الكندي، وأبو ذر جندب الغفاري، وعمار بن ياسر، وحذيفة بن اليمان، وأبو الهيثم مالك بن التيهان، وخزيمة بن ثابت، وأبو الطفيل عامر على النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) فجلسوا بين يديه والحزن ظاهر في وجوههم فقالوا له فديناك بالآباء والأمهات يا رسول الله انا نسمع في أخيك علي (عليه السلام) ما يحزننا سماعه وإنا نستأذنك في الرد عليهم، فقال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): وما عساهم يقولون في أخي علي؟
فقالوا: يا رسول الله انهم يقولون: اي فضيلة له في سبقه إلى الإسلام، وإنما ادركه الإسلام طفلا، ونحن يحزننا هذا فقال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): هذا يحزنكم؟ قالوا: نعم يا رسول الله، فقال أسألكم بالله هل علمتم من الكتب الأولى ان إبراهيم (عليه السلام) هربت به أمه وهو
طفل صغير من عدو الله وعدوه النمرود في عهده فوضعته أمه بين ثلاث أشجار شاطئ نهر يدفق يقال له حوران وهو بين غروب الشمس وإقبال الليل فلما وضعته أمه واستقر على وجه الأرض فقام من تحتها فمسح رأسه ووجهه وسائر بدنه وهو يكثر من الشهادة لله بالوحدانية ثم اخذ ثوبا فاتشح به وأمه ترى ما يفعل فرعبت منه رعبا شديدا فهرول من بين يديها مادا عينه إلى السماء فكان منه ما قال الله (عز وجل): (فلما جن عليه الليل رأى كوكبا قال هذا ربي) وقصة الشمس والقمر إلى قوله: وما انا من المشركين).
وعلمتم ان موسى بن عمران (عليه السلام) كان فرعون في طلبه يبقر بطون النساء الحوامل ويذبح الأطفال لقتل موسى (عليه السلام) فلما ولدته أمه أوحى إليها أن يأخذوه من تحتها فتقذفه وتلقيه في التابوت وتقذفه في اليم فبقيت حيرانة حتى كلمها موسى وقال لها يا أم اقذفيني في التابوت فقالت له هي من كلامه يا بني اني أخاف عليك من الغرق فقال لها: لا تخافي ان الله رادني إليك ففعلت ذلك فبقي التابوت في اليم إلى أن ألقاه إلى الساحل ورد إلى أمه وهو برهة لا يطعم طعاما ولا يشرب شرابا معصوما وروي ان المدة كانت سبعين يوما وروي انها كانت تسعة اشهر وقال الله تعالى في حال طفوليته: (ولتصنع على عيني إذ تمشي أختك فتقول هل أدلكم على أهل بيت يكفلونه) الآية.
وهذا عيسى بن مريم (عليه السلام) قال الله تعالى: (فناداها من تحتها الا تحزني قد جعل ربك تحتك سريا) إلى آخر الآية.
فكلم أمه وقت مولده فقال لها: (كلي واشربي وقري عينا فإما ترين من البشر أحدا فقولي اني نذرت للرحمن صوما فلن أكلم اليوم انسيا).
وقال: (فأشارت إليه قالوا كيف نكلم من كان في المهد صبيا قال إني عبد الله آتاني الكتاب وجعلني نبيا وجعلني مباركا أينما كنت وأوصاني
بالصلاة والزكاة ما دمت حيا وبرا بوالدتي ولم يجعلني جبارا شقيا).
فتكلم عيسى بن مريم (عليه السلام) في وقت ولادته وأعطي الكتاب والنبوة وأوصي بالصلاة والزكاة في ساعة مولده وكلمه الناس في اليوم الثالث وقد علمتم جميعا خلقتي وان عليا من نوري ونوري ونوره نور واحد وكنا كذلك نسبح الله ونقدسه ونمجده ونهلله ونكبره قبل ان يخلق الملائكة والسماوات والأرضين والهواء ثم عرش العرش وكتب أسماءنا بالنور عليه ثم اسكننا صلب آدم ولم نزل ننتقل في أصلاب الرجال المؤمنين وفي أرحام النساء الصالحات يسمع تسبيحنا في الظهور والبطون في كل عهد وعصر وزمان إلى أبي عبد المطلب فإنه كان يظهر نورنا في بلجات وجوه آبائنا وأمهاتنا حتى ثبتت أسماؤنا مخطوطة بالنور على جبهاتهم.
فلما افترقنا نصفين: في عبد الله نصف، وفي أبي طالب عمي نصف كان تسبيحنا في ظهورهما، فكان عمي وأبي إذا جلسا في ملأ من الناس ناجى نوري من صلب أبي نور علي من صلب أبيه إلى أن خرجنا من صلبي أبوينا وبطني أمينا ولقد علم جبريل (عليه السلام) في وقت ولادة علي وهو يقول: هذا أول ظهور نبوتك واعلان وحيك وكشف رسالتك إذ أيدك الله بأخيك ووزيرك وصنوك وخليفتك ومن شددت به أزرك وأعليت به ذكرك علي بن أبي طالب فقمت مبادرا فوجدت فاطمة ابنة أسد أم علي بن أبي طالب وقد جاءها المخاض فوجدتها بين النساء والقوابل من حولها فقال حبيبي جبرائيل: سجف بينها وبين النساء سجافا، فإذا وضعت عليا فتلقه بيدك اليمنى ففعلت ما امرني به ومددت يدي اليمنى نحو أمه فإذا بعلي ماثلا على يدي واضعا يده اليمنى في اذنه يؤذن ويقيم بالحنفية ويشهد بوحدانية الله (عز وجل) وبرسالتي.
ثم أشار إلي فقال: يا رسول الله إقرأ، قلت: اقرأ والذي نفس محمد بيده لقد ابتدأ بالصحف التي أنزلها الله على آدم وابنه شيث فتلاها من
أول حرف إلى آخر حرف حتى لو حضر شيث لأقر بأنه أقرأ لها منه، ثم تلا صحف نوح حتى لو حضر نوح لأقر أنه اقرأ لها منه، ثم تلا صحف إبراهيم حتى لو حضر إبراهيم لأقر انه اقرأ لها منه، ثم تلا زبور داود حتى لو حضر داود لأقر أنه أقرأ لها منه، ثم تلا توراة موسى حتى لو حضر موسى لأقر انه أقرأ، ثم قرأ إنجيل عيسى حتى لو حضر عيسى لأقر بأنه اقرأ لها منه، ثم خاطبني وخاطبته بما يخاطب به الأنبياء ثم عاد إلى طفولتيه.
وهكذا سبيل الاثني عشر إماما من ولده يفعلون في ولادتهم مثله.

Imam Al Saadiq a.s. said about Imam Ali pbuh :"...and that is the way of the 12 Imams from his sons they will do in their birth like him"

أبوالمفضل ، عن رجاء بن يحيى العبرتائي الكاتب ، عن محمد بن خلاد الباهلي ، عن معاذ بن معاذ ، عن ابن عون ، عن هشام بن زيد ، عن أنس بن مالك قال : سألت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عن حواري عيسى فقال : كانوا من صفوته وخيرته وكانوا اثني عشر مجردين مكمشين في نصرة الله ورسوله ، لازهو ( 4 ) فيهم ولا ضعف ولا شك ، كانوا ينصرونه على بصيرة ونفاذ وجد وعناء ، قلت : فمن حواريك يا رسول الله ؟ فقال : الائمة بعدي اثنا عشر من صلب علي وفاطمة ، هم حواريي وأنصار ديني ( 5 ) ، عليهم من الله التحية والسلام .

From Anas

From Anes Ibn Malek: I asked the Messenger of Allah pbuhap about the disciples of Jesus pbuh and he said: They were from the best ones and benevolent ones and they were 12 Mujarideen and Mukamasheen in supporting Allah and his Messenger, there is no arrogance in them and no weakness and no doubt, they were supporting him with vision and dedication and seriousness and strivance, I said: So who are your disciples O Messenger of Allah?He said: The Imams after me are 12 from the line of Ali and Fatima peace of Allah be upon them with salutations and Salam, they are my disciples and my supporters of my religion.

I heard Aba Jaafar pbuh saying:12 Imams from the family of Muhammad all of them are Muhadeth from the Messenger of Allah s.a.w from the son of Ali and the Messenger of Allah and Ali pbut are the parents, so Ali son of Rashed and he was the brother of Ali son of AlHussain to his mother so he rejected that and Abu Jaafar insisted he said: And the son of your mother is one of them.

From Zuraara he said I heard Aba Jaafar pbuh saying:"We are 12 Imams and from them were Hassan and Hussain and then the Imams from the son of Hussain pbuh"Kafi v.1 p.533 h.16

16 - الحسين بن محمد، عن معلى بن محمد، عن الوشاء، عن أبان، عن زرارة قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: نحن اثنا عشر إماما منهم حسن وحسين ثم الائمة من ولد الحسين عليه السلام.

The Imam said "from them" are Hassan and Hussain and then Imams from the son of Hussain pbuh. Here Imam Aba Jaafar a.s. didn't include Imam Ali a.s. or even mention him. He didn't say from them are Ali,Hassan and Hussain but rather Hassan and Hussain and then continued.

من رواية يحيى بن السلام، يرفعه إلى عبد الله بن عمر، أنه قال: ( ابشروا فيوشك أيام الجبارين أن تنقطع، ثم يكون بعدهم الجابر الذي يجبر الله به امة محمد صلى الله عليه وآله، المهدي، ثم المنصور، ثم عدد أئمة مهديين ) شرح الأخبار للقاضي النعمان المغربي ج 3 ص 400.

From Abdullah ibn Umar from the Prophet of Allah pbuhap that he said “Glad tidings when the days of the tyrants shall be cut off,and then after them the Jaber that Allah swt will force through him,the nation of Muhammad pbuhap,by the Mahdi and then the Mansoor and then the counted Imams and Mahdis” Sharh Al Akhbar,AlQathi AlNuman AlMagrebi v.3 p.400

21.Habbah Al-Arni said: the Prince of the believers [pbuh] went out to Heera and said: “this will be joined to this” and he pointed with his hand to Kofa and Heera “until a cubit in between them will be sold in Dinars, and then in Heera a mosque shall be built which has 500 doors,the caliphate(successor) of the Qa’im [May God hasten his relief] shall pray in it, because the mosque of Kofa will be small for them and 12 Imams of justice will pray in it” – Bihar AlAnwar v.52 p.474, Tahtheeb AlAhkaam by Sheikh Al-Tosi v.3 p.245

22.From Abi Jaafar pbuh from Jabbir son of Abdullah AlAnsari he said:"I entered to Fatima pbuh and between her hands there was a tablet which contained the names of the successors from her sons, so she counted 12 , the last one is the Riser pbuh, 3 of them is Muhammad and 3 of them is Ali"Kafi v.1 p.532 h.9

Imam Ali a.s. is not from the children of Fatima a.s.

23.From Abi Jaafar pbuh he said:"Allah sent Muhammad to the Jin and mankind and made after him 12 successors, from them are those who passed and from them are those who remained, and every successor had a Sunna. The successors that are after Muhammad s.a.w are on the Sunna of the successors of Jesus and they were 12 and prince of the believers pbuh was on the Sunna of Jesus." v.1 p.532 h.10 AlKafi

If Imam Ali a.s. was on the Sunna of Jesus, 12 of them were on the Sunna of the successors of Jesus not the Sunna of Jesus pbuh. So Imam Ali a.s. was on the Sunna of Jesus and 12 of them were on the Sunna of the successors of Jesus.

24.From Abi Jaafar pbuh he said:The Messenger of Allah pbuhap said:"I and 12 from my children and you are O Ali the balance of the earth meaning its pegs and mountains, by us Allah has pegged the earth so it will not perish with its people,so if the 12 from my children vanish, the earth would have perished with its people and will not remain" Kafi v.1 p.534 h.17

Imam Ali a.s. is not from the children of Prophet Muhammad s.a.

25.From Abi Jaafar pbuh he said:"The Messenger of Allah pbuap said:from my children are 12 captains,precious(Nujaba),Muhadithoon(speak hadeeths),Mufahimoon(who make people understand),the last of them is the Riser with truth,he will spread it(the earth)with justice after it has been filled with oppression"Basa'er Darajat p.48

Imam Ali a.s is not from the children of the Prophet s.a.w

26.And from Imam Sajad (a.s) he said: "and from among us after the Qa'em there shall be twelve Mahdis"Sharh Alkhbar 3/400 (Explanation News 3 / 400.)

27.Dua third day of Shabaan in Mafateeh Al-Jinaan narrated from Imam Al Ritha a.s: “And the successors from his(Imam Hussain) offspring after the Qa’em and his occultation.” Mafateeh Al Jinaan p.222

28.And about Abu Baseer said: "I told Al Sadiq, Ja'far Bin Mohammad (A.S), "O son of the Prophet, I once heard your father a.s saying that after the Qa'em there shall be twelve Imams", and then he corrected, "He actually said twelve Mahdis and not twelve Imams. They are from our followers (Shiite), who shall call upon people to support us and identify our right." Kamal Al Din (Perfectionism of Religion) chapter 2, page 358.

29.Al-Hadrami narrated from Abi Ja’afar [pbuh] saying: I asked him which spot on earth is the most favoured after the Haram of Allah [swt] and the Haram of his Messenger [pbuhf]? He said: “Al-Kofah O Aba Baker, it is the virtuous and purified, in it are the graves of the dispatched prophets, the non-dispatched [prophets] and the honest successors. And in it is the Mosque of Suhail where God has not sent a Prophet unless he prayed inside it, and from it the justice of God appears and in it will be His Riser and the Risers after him, and it is the dwellings of the prophets, successors and the righteous ones” – Kamel Al-Ziyarat by Ja’afar bin Muhammad bin Qoloweh, page 76

30.Abi Hamza narrated from Abi Abdullah [pbuh] in a long hadith that he said: “O Aba Hamza, from among us 11 Mahdies after the Qa’im from the sons of Al-Hussain [AS]” -Ghaiba, Al-Tosi page 478-479.

31.- A dua from Ahlul Bait [pbut]: “O Allah and pray upon the holders of his(Imam Al Mahdi) covenant, attain them their hopes, make their lives longer and grant them victory. Fulfil what you have entrusted them from the matter of your religion, and make us their helpers and supporters of your religion, and pray upon his pure fathers, the rightly guided Imams…” – Mikyal Al-Makarim v.2 p.73

The dua here is for the Qa’im [pbuh] and the holders of his covenant are his successors as it is clear. This dua mentions the phrase: “Fulfil what you have entrusted them from the matter of your religion” because they [pbut] are entrusted with the matter of religion. And the proof that the intended here are the Mahdies is that he prays upon the Mahdies and then he prays upon his pure fathers, meaning the fathers of the Qa’im [pbuh].

32.Sheikh Al-Sadooq narrated that Imam Al-Jawad peace be upon him said: “If you are done with the written prayer, say: I have approved Allah as a Lord, and Islam as a religion, and the Quran as a Book, and Muhammad as a prophet and Ali as a master and Al-Hassan and Hussain and Ali ibn Al-Hussain …. and Al-Hujja ibn Al-Hassan ibn Ali as Imams. O Allah your supporter is Al-Hujjah so protect him… and make him the Riser of your matter and the victorious of your religion and show him what he delights in his self, his progeny, his family…” (Ma La Yahzarho Al-Faqeeh: vol.1 p327, Al-Kafi: vol. 2 p.548)

33.Imam Al Saadeq pbuh said:"After the Riser there will be 12 Mahdis from the son of Hussein" p.385/Burhan v.3 p.310/Bihar AlAnwar v.53 p.148

34.Prophet of Allah pbuhap said:"And then he mentioned a man and then he said, if you see him pledge allegiance to him for he is the successor(Khaleefa) of the Mahdi" Ibn Tawoos Malahem Wal Fitan p.50

35..From Um Hane' AlThaqeefa she said:At evening I went to my Master Muhammad son of Ali AlBaqer pbuh and said:"O Master there is a verse in the Book of Allah that is in my heart and made me worried and I spent the whole night." "Ask O Um Hane'!" she said:"O Master Allah swt said"So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede" "Go straight, or hide" verse 14,15 Surat Al Takweer. He said:"Yes, this question you asked about Um Hane', it is a child that will be born in the end times, he is the Mahdi from this offspring" Kamal Al Deen and Tamam Al Ni'ma Sheikh AlSadooq p.330 p.308 p.312 مامتو نيدلا لامك
- - - النعمة الشيخ الصدوق ص 330 ص 308 - ص 312

This person cannot be Imam Al Mahdi a.s. because he wasn't born in the end of times but was born before his long occultation. So, this Mahdi has to be another one and it can only be from his children and progeny and born after his long occultation.

36.Prophet of Allah pbuh said:"The Mahdi and 7 after him from his sons,are all righteous,no one will be like them”Sharh Al Akhbar AlQathi AlNuman AlMagrebi v.3 p.4

37.Mufathel ibn Umar from Abi Abdullah a.s:"The companion of the matter has two occultations, one of them will be long,until some of them will say he died,and some of them will say he is killed,and some of them will say he left,until nothing is left from his matter except a small party of his companions and nobody will know about his matter not even his children nor anybody else except the Master(Mawla) that will succeed his matter" AlGaiba LilToosi p.161

The Master(Mawla)that will succeed him is his successor and he is a successor of the Mahdi a.s. According to the will of the Prophet s.a.w his successor is from his family and Ahlulbayt.

38.Imam Ali a.s said:“A man will come out before the Mahdi from his ahlulbayt (family) in the East, he carries the sword on his shoulder for eight months" v.7 p.261 Kanz Al Umal AlMumahedoon by Sheikh AlKorani

39.Imam Jaafer(a.s)says to O Aba Muhammad the narrator of the hadeeth"As if I see the Riser in the mosque of AlSahla with his family and children.I said:Would that be his house?He said:Yes." Bihar AlAnwar v.52 p.381

40.AlMufathel son of Umar from AlSaadeq pbuh about the matter of the Riser pbuh AlMufathel said:So what will he do in Mecca?He said:He will call them towards wisdom and good advice,so they will obey him and will appoint from among them a man from his Ahlulbayt and will emerge to head to Medina"Bihar Al Anwar v.53 p.11

41.From Ali son of AlHussain pbuh when he was mentioning the Riser pbuh in a long narration:"He will sit under a black tree and so Gabriel will come to him in a picture of a man from Kalb, so he will say: O servant of Allah what made you sit here?So he says: O servnt of Allah I am waiting for dinner to come to me so that I can emerge fi Dubraho to Mecca and I hate to emerge during this hotness. He said: And he was laughing and while he was laughing, he knew it was Gabriel so he said: He takes his hand and shakes it and greets him. And he will say to him: Stand up, and he will bring him a horse that is called"AlBuraq" and so he will ride it and then reach to the mountain of Rathwa, and so Muhammad and Ali will come to him and will write for him a promise that is spread out, he will read it to the people and then will emerge to Mecca and the people will gather for it. He said: And a man from him will stand and call"Bihar Al Anwar v.52 p.306 "And a man from him will stand" meaning from Imam Al Mahdi pbuh.

42.It was asked to Imam Ali a.s. and who are they O Prince of the believers?He said: “Me and my sons AlHassan and AlHussain and Ali son of AlHussain and Muhammad son of Ali and Jaafar son of Muhammad and Musa son of Jaafar and Ali son of Musa and Muhammad son of Ali and Ali son of Muhammad and AlHasan son of Ali and Muhammad son of AlHassan Owner of the time peace be upon them all, and after them are our followers and our Shias, that accept our guardianship and reject the guardianship of our enemies.” Ilzam AlNaaseb fi Ithbat AlHujja AlGa'eb Sheikh AlYazdi AlHaeri v.1 p.100-101

And about Abu Baseer said: "I told Al Sadiq, Ja'far Bin Mohammad (A.S), "O son of the Prophet, I once heard your father a.s saying that after the Qa'em there shall be twelve Imams", and then he corrected, "He actually said twelve Mahdis and not twelve Imams. They are from our followers (Shiite), who shall call upon people to support us and identify our right." Kamal Al Din (Perfectionism of Religion) chapter 2, page 358. 33.Imam Al Saadiq pbuh said:"Peace be upon you O Master O Hujja son of AlHasan Saaheb AlZaman blessings of Allah be upon you and upon your pure benevolent offspring "Bihar Al Anwar v.98 p.375 Mustadrak AlWasael v.10 p.369-371 h.12200 Jame Ahadeeth AlShia v.12 p.294-295

43.Zaid son of AlHareth said and Sa'ad son of Malek:O Messenger of Allah we heard you yesterday mentioning AlHussain son of Ali and his father the Prince of the believers so he pbuhap said:"He will appear from the tribes of my son of AlHussain and lineage , an Imam who is called the Imam Muhammad son of AlHasan son of Ali, and a tribe will appear from his lineage that there count will not be reckoned and on their hands are the Muthari swords and the David armors and the Adnanite clothings and they will rise with giving victory to AlHussain as if they were with us and as if I can see them approaching the streets of AlKufa" Hidayat AlKubra AlHussain son of Hamdan AlKhasbi p.531

44.I heard Aba Jaafar pbuh saying: By Allah there will be from us Ahlulbayt, a man who will rule after his death, 300 and will increase in 9. He said: When will this be? He said:After the Riser. So I said:And how long will the Riser rise in his world?He said: 19 years and then the Victor(Muntaser) will emerge to demand the blood of AlHussain pbuh and his companions and so he gets killed and held captive until the Safah emerges." AlGaiba p.478-479

45. A man from Ahlulbayt pbut after the Riser will rule for 309 years and to prove that this man is a Riser : Abu Jaafar pbuh said:"The Riser will rule for 309 years like how the people of the cave were ,when they remained in their cave.He will spread the earth with justice and tranquility after it has been filled with unjustice and oppression and Allah will open for him the East of the Earth and the West and will kill the people until nothing remains except the religion of Muhammad s.a.w, he will go by the tradition of Suleiman son of David" v.1 p.534 Kafi

45.Imam Al Mahdi pbuh"My God, I ask you by the name that Jacob asked you with, when his eyes became blind and his gathering was scattered and lost the joy of his eyes, his son, so you answered his supplication and collected his gathering and made his eyes joyful and lifted his inflictions and you were close to him.'O' close one, Send blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and permit me after all what has been torn apart within my matter and make my eyes joyful by my son and family and money and reform my state, all of it, and bless me in all my conditions" p.331-356 Mahj Al Da'waat أسألك باسمك الذي سألك به يعقوب و قد كف بصره و شتت شمله [جمعه] و فقد قرة عينه ابنه فاستجبت له دعاءه و جمعت شمله و
أقررت عينه و كشفت ضره و كنت منه قريبا يا قريب أن تصلي على محمد و آل محمد و أن تأذن لي بجميع ما تبدد من أمري و تقر
عيني بولدي و أهلي و مالي و تصلح شأني كله و تبارك لي في جميع أحوالي
and also another time Imam Al Mahdi a.s. made dua for his son
و أسألك باسمك الذي دعاك به لوط عليه السلام فنجيته و أهله من الخسف و الهدم و المثلات و الشدة و الجهد و أخرجته و أهله من
الكرب العظيم و استجبت له دعاءه و كنت منه قريبا يا قريب أن تصلي على محمد و آل محمد و أن تأذن لي بجميع ما شتت من شملي و
تقر عيني بولدي و أهلي و مالي
“And I ask you by your name that Loot pbuh asked you by and so you have saved him and his family from the landslide and the destruction and the punishments and the hardship and the difficulty and so you took him away and his family from the great calamity and answered his dua and you were close to him.Send blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and permit me after all what has been torn apart within my matter and make my eyes joyful by my son and family and money and reform my state, all of it, and bless me in all my conditions"

46.A story from Haj Ali AlBaghdady with Imam Al Mahdi pbuh. Haj Ali AlBaghdady said to him:"O Master, this place is a possession for some of the orphans from among the Sayeds, and we shouldn't deal with it. So he answered: It is for my grandfather Prince of the believers pbuh and his offspring and our children and it is permissible to be dealt with for our lovers"Mafateeh AlJinan Sheikh Abas AlQumi p.525 Dar AlMutaqeen first print 2008

47.1071-From Aban son of Tagleb he said: I heard Aba Abdullah Jaafar son of Muhammad pbuh saying:"If the banner of truth appeared, the people of the East and the West will curse it.You know why?He said:No.He said: This is what the people will see from his Ahlulbayt before his emergence.” Gaibat Al Numani p.298-299

48.Kafi Sheikh AlKulaini v.1 p.323 Describing the mother of the Riser (a.s)Imam AlRitha pbuh cried,then he said:”'O' Uncle!Haven't you heard my father when he said:He said the Messenger of Allah pbuhap:By my father,son of a benevolent woman servant, the Nubian(from a region in Sudan)with a beautiful mouth,the precious womb, woe unto them,the curse of Allah be upon the Aybus(Abbasid Caliphate)and his offspring,the Master of the Fitna(choas).He will kill them for years,months,days and will punish them with a landslide and make them drink a cup filled with patience and he is the one exiled,the fugitive,the one who is Mawtoor Be Abeeh[in pain because of his oppressed father] and his grandfather is the man of the occultation,it was said[to him]: He died or is killed, in which valley did he take??”

49.Ayah 11 “But they reject the hour, and We have prepared a burning fire for him who rejects the hour” Abu Samit narrates from Imam Sadiq (asws), Imam (as) said, “Verily, there are 12 hours in the day and 12 hours in the night. Verily, Ali (asws) is the greatest hour amongst those hours.” (Tafseer e Burhan Third Vol pg 157) Greatest hour amongst those hours. Imam Ali a.s. is the greatest hour amongst those 24 hours.

If we look at the Prophet's will there are 12 Imams and 12 Mahdis, so Imam Ali a.s. is the best out of all of the 11 Imams and 12 Mahdis meaning best out of the 23 hours. Every hour is a successor of Allah and that is why Imam Ali a.s. is called an hour, because hour here is referring to an Imam and an infallible successor of Allah swt.

50.The Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him and his family) said to Ali Ibn Abi Taleb during the night of his death: "O Father of Al Hassan, bring me a paper and a utensil", and he dictated his will until he came to a position where he said "O Ali, there will be twelve Imams and after them there will be twelve Mahdi's. You, O Ali, are the first of the twelve Imams, God has named you in his heavens Ali Al Mortada,The Prince of the believers, Grand truthful, the bright Farouq (Judge and differentiating between true and false), the trusted, and the Mahdi (rightly guided). These names may not be truly attributed to other than you. O Ali, you are my guardian on my own family, their living and their dead. My women, whom you maintain shall find me tomorrow, and whom you reject I am acquitted of her. I will not see her and she will not see me on the day of resurrection, and you are the successor (Khalifa) on my nation after me. If the day of death comes to you, hand it over to my son Hassan the very beneficial. Then if the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to my son Al Hussein, the Martyr, the Pure and the Assassinated. If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, the master of the servants and worshipers Ali.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohamed Al Baqir.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Jaâfar Al Sadiq (the honest).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Moussa Al Kadhim (The Patient).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ali Al Reda.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohamed Al Thiqa (The Trustworthy).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ali Al Nasih (The Advisor). If the day death of comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Al Hassan Al Fadil. If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohammed the Mandate/Preserver of the Holy Family of Mohamad Peace be upon them all. These are the twelve Imams. Then there will be twelve Mahdi's after them. Then when Allah receiveth him, let him hand it over to his son, the first of the close ones, he has three names, one like mine and my Father's: Abdollah (Servant of God), Ahmad and the third name is The Mahdi (the guided) and he is the first Believer" Gaibat Al Toosi p.150-151 Najm AlThaqi 23.Bihar Al Anwar Al-Majlesy v.44 p.138-139

(to be continued)

51.Prince of the believers pbuh said:"I thought about a child from the back of the 11th one from my son,he is the Mahdi that will spread it with justice and tranquility after it has been filled with unjustice and tyranny,there will be about him confusion and an occultation,tribes of people will become misguided and tribes will become guided.I said:O Master how long will this confusion and this occultation be?He said pbuh:6 days or 6 months or 6 years?"Gaibat Al Toosi p.164-166

First son:Imam Hassan Second son:Imam Hussein Third son:Imam Ali ibn Hussein Forth son:Imam Muhammad ibn Ali Fifth son:Imam Jaafer ibn Muhammad Sixth son:Imam Musa ibn Jaafer Seventh son:Imam Ali ibn Musa Eighth son:Imam Muhammad ibn Ali Ninth son:Imam Ali ibn Muhammad
Tenth son:Imam Hassan ibn Ali Eleventh son:Imam Muhammad ibn Hassan From the 11th son!!! Ahmad.
He said pbuh:6 days or 6 months or 6 years We understand that Imam Al Mahdi pbuh he has an occultation that was one thousand and two hundred or some years so how can this be Imam Al Mahdi a.j? It has to be the son of Imam Al Mahdi a.j Ahmad a.s

52.Abdulrahman ibn Abi Layla-Ali(a.s)said:"I was with the Prophet in the house of Um Salama..until he says(a.s):"The messenger of Allah(saw)turned towards me and he said while he raised his voice:"Be aware if the fifth one is missing- from the son of -the seventh of my children.Ali(a.s)said:O Messenger of Allah,what will be this Gaiba(occultation)?He said:Silence until Allah permits his emergence." Mujam Almawthoo'i li'ahadeeth Imam Al Mahdi p.163 Bihar v.36 p.335

Obviously in this hadeeth we see that the Prophet Muhammad(saw)is warning us about the fifth one from the seventh of his children. Ali a.s is not from his children so: 7th one from Prophet's children 1.Hassan 2.Hussein 3.Ali 4.Muhammad 5.Jaafer 6.Musa 7.Ali fifth one who is from the seventh(Imam Ali Al-Ritha(a.s) of the Prophet's children 1.Muhammad 2.Ali 3.Hassan 4.Muhammad ??? 5.Ahmad.

53.From Muhammad son Hanafya:Prince of the believers(a.s)(I heard the Messenger of Allah(saw)saying in a long hadeeth about the merits of Ahlulbayt(a.s):There shall be an excruciating and tragic fitna,he will fall within it every partner and close member,that is when your Shias miss the fifth one from the seventh of your children)Kafayat Al Ather p.157 7th one from Imam Ali's children 1.Hassan 2.Hussein 3.Ali 4.Muhammad 5.Jaafer 6.Musa 7.Ali (Ali AlRitha) who is from the seventh of Imam Ali's children Now the fifth one from his children 1.Muhammad 2.Ali 3.Hassan 4.Muhammad ??? 5.Ahmad.

54.Imam Al Kathem(a.s)he said to his sons and family(If the fifth one from the son of the 7th one is missing, Allah Allah on your religion,let none of you be remote from it,O son there must be for the companion of the matter an occultation until the one who speaks of this matter will turn away.It is a trial from Allah the Exlated and Mighty,he tested his creation by,if their fathers knew and their grandfathers a religion better than it,they would have followed.I said: Who is it O Master the fifth one from the son of the seventh?He said:O son your brains are small for this,and your dreams will be bothered to even withstand it,but if you live by then you will know him)Kafi v.1 p.336

Let us think on what thing would the brains of the sons and family members of Imam AlKaathem a.s will be small for to even withstand?They are asking about the fifth, from the son of the seventh.Is knowing the name of Imam Al Mahdi Muhammad son of AlHassan(a.s)that the enemies and the supporters know about be difficult?The narrations have mentioned him and his occultation with 10s of narrations ,can this make the dreams of the children and family members of Imam AlKathem a.s be bothered to even withstand ? So is Imam Al Mahdi a.s Muhammad son of AlHassan(a.s)the 12th Imam someone for the Shias difficult to not know about? That even their brains will be small enough to not even comprehend him? Millions of Shias have heard of him and believed in him without a complaint. So who is that person other than the son of Imam AlMahdi a.s Ahmad ,where the main test for the Shias is.

55.From AlBaqer pbuh when he was talking about the Mahdi's move"Until when he reaches AlThalabya,a man will stand from the lineage of his father,and he is one of the most severe with his body and heart,other than Saheb Al Amr,and he says:O you,what are you doing?By Allah you are scaring the people like as if you were scaring cattle,is this from the time of the Messenger of Allah or what?And so then the Mawla(Master)that will succeed the pledging of allegiance,by Allah if you don't remain silent,I will strike with what is in your eyes" Mu'jam Ahadeeth Imam AlMahdi v.5 p.26-29

56.From AlBaqer pbuh he said:"There will be for the companion of the matter an occultation in a few of these regions and then he pointed his finger over at Thi Tiwa(Najaf) until before his emergence,the Mawla(Master) that was with him will arrive,and he will then meet with a few companions"Kitab Gaibat AlNumani p.187

Mashallah jazak Allah Kol khair bihaq Muhammad and Al Muhammad brother.. Now those hadiths are mutawatir by meaning according to Ilm Al-Diraya so no one can reject the ideology of the mahdies unless they aren't from the Shia of ahlulbait a.s
#57465
Inshallah this book gets updated with the arabic texts soon and adding more hadeeths with references.
#57466
57.Gabriel came to the Prophet s.a.w and said:"O Muhammad!Allah orders you to marry Fatima to your brother Ali."The Prophet s.a.w sent for Ali and said to him:"O Ali, I will marry my daughter Fatima, the head lady of the women of the world and the most beloved one to me, to you and there will be from you(your offspring)the two masters of the martyrs of paradise, the oppressed bloodstained martyrs on the earth after me and the highborn progeny, with whom Allah will defeat injustice, revive the truth and finish off the untruth. Their number is like the number of months of a year. Behind the last one of them Prophet Jesus the son of Blessed Virgin Mary a.s. will offer the prayer". Gaibat AlNumani p.65

58.Ali son of Abi Hamza AlBata'eni said to Imam Ritha pbuh "We narrated that the Imam will not pass away until he sees his offspring.He said Abu AlHassan(AlRitha pbuh): Did you narrate a different hadeeth than this? He said: No. He said: Yes by Allah you have narrated, except the Riser and you do not know what it means and to whom it was referring to. So Ali Ibn Hamza said:Yes by Allah, this is in the hadeeth. Abu AlHasan a.s. said: Woe onto you, how can you be so sure about something when you left some of it.

So pay attention to this part"And you do not know what it means to whom it was referring to" if it was talking about Imam Al Mahdi a.s. it wouldn't have been hidden from a man like Ali son of Abi Hamza AlBata'eni who excelled in memorizing the narrations of Ahlulbayt a.s. And how can it be hidden from him and most of the people around that time knew that the Riser that is being discussed is the Imam Al Mahdi a.s. So since the meaning is "no offspring for him" was hidden from Ali son of Abi Hamza AlBata'ini and the rest from the narrators, it must be meant to someone different than Imam Al Mahdi pbuh and he is the last of the Mahdis from the offspring of Imam Al Mahdi a.s. which is the meaning that was intended from Imam Al Ritha a.s. when he said "and you do not know to whom it was referred to and what it was meant" Bihar Al Anwar v.48 p.270

59.Sulaim Ibn Qais from Salman AlMuhammady from the Messenger of Allah pbuhap in a long narration:"And then he hit his hand on AlHussain pbuh and said:"O Salman, Mahdi of my nation that will spread the earth with justice and tranquility after it has been fillied with oppression and tyranny is from this son. Imam son of Imam, scholar son of scholar, executor son of executor, his father that comes after him is an Imam executor of a scholar. He said: I said: O Prophet of Allah, the Mahdi is better or his father?He said: His father is better than him. The first one has like all their reward because Allah guided them through him"

Sheikh Nathem AlUqaily:
From this narration the Mahdi here cannot be Imam Al Mahdi pbuh because it doesn't apply to him if the father comes after the son we know that the father can't come after the son because the Prophet s.a.w said "his father that comes after him is an Imam executor of a scholar"and ofcourse there is no parent that comes after his son in existence so it remains that the Mahdi pbuh , his father will come after him in appearance such is the case of Imam Al Mahdi pbuh and his executor Ahmed. So the narrations indicate that the first Mahdi would appear before his father Imam Al Mahdi AlHujja son of AlHasan pbuh so the Mahdi that his father comes after him is the first Mahdi from the offspring of Imam Al Mahdi pbuh.

And the father of Imam Al Mahdi pbuh is not better than Imam Al Mahdi pbuh from evidence of the Prophet s.a.w

From Abu Abdullah(Imam Jaafer a.s)from his fathers a.s he said:"Prophet of Allah says:"And he chose from me Ali,Hassan,and Hussein and the completion of the 12 Imams from the son of Hussein, the 9th of them is the inner(of them),and he is the outer,he is the best of them,and he is the Qa'em(the one who stands)".Gaiba Al Numani p.73

60.Sulaim Ibn Qais AlHilali from Salman AlFarisy in a long narration from the Messenger of Allah pbuhap"So the Messenger of Allah pbuhap said:My brother is the best in my nation and Hamza and Jaafar the two are the best in my nation after Ali and after you and after my sons and my grandsons AlHasan and AlHussain and after the executors from my son this-and the Messenger of Allah pointed with his hand to AlHussain a.s.-and from them is the AlMahdi. And the one before him is better than him, the first one is better than the other because he is his Imam and the other one is the executor of the first. Us Ahlulbayt, Allah has chosen for us the hereafter over the Dunya(world).." Book of Suleim Ibn Qais -investigated by Muhammad Baqer AlAnsary p.132-134

"the one before him is better than him" "the first one is better than the other"

If the one before him is better than him can it really mean Imam Hasan Al Askari a.s. is better than Imam Al Mahdi a.s.?
Let us read these hadeeths:

From Salman AlFarisy he said, we were with the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and AlHusain son of Ali pbut was on his thigh, and so he placed his hand on his face and said:"O Aba Abdullah, you are the Sayed of the Sayeds, and you are an Imam son of an Imam, brother of an Imam and father of the 9 Imams, the 9th one of them is the Riser, their Imam, most knowledgeable one, most wise and best of them"Mugtathab AlAthar of Amed son of Ayash AlJawhari p.8-9

From Abi Baser from Abi Jaafar pbuh he said:"There will be from us 9 after AlHussain son of Ali, the 9th of them is their Riser and he is the best of them" Dala'el AlImama Muhammad Ibn Jareer AlTabari the Shia p.353

So the hadeeths mention that the 9th one from the son of Hussain a.s. is the best of them which means that Imam Al Mahdi a.s. is the best out of the 8 Imams from the son of Hussain a.s. The 9th one of them is Imam Al Mahdi a.s. and the Mahdi is not better than his father...so how can his father Imam Hasan AlAskari a.s. be better than him when the Imam said clearly that Imam Al Mahdi is the best of them?

"he is his Imam" the hadeeth says here that the 9th one from the son of Hussain is their Imam meaning Imam Al Mahdi pbuh is an Imam over the other 8 Imams including his father Imam Hasan AlAskari a.s.

From Salman AlFarisy he said, we were with the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and AlHusain son of Ali pbut was on his thigh, and so he touched his face with his hand and said:"O Aba Abdullah[Hussain], you are the Sayed of the Sayeds, and you are an Imam son of an Imam, brother of an Imam and father of the 9 Imams, the 9th one of them is the Riser, their Imam, most knowledgeable one ,most wise and best of them"Mugtathab AlAthar of Amed son of Ayash AlJawhari p.8-9

So this Mahdi cannot be Imam Al Mahdi Muhammad son of AlHasan a.s., it is Ahmed the successor of Imam Al Mahdi because his father is his Imam and also Imam Al Mahdi is the Imam of the other 8 Imams.

61.About the Rise of the Riser pbuh between AlRukn and AlMaqam he says:"..and we have been oppressed and sent out from our houses and sons"Gaibat AlNumani p.288-290

62.Sayed Ibn Tawoos "And I have found a narration which is connected in chain that the Mahdi peace of Allah be upon him has sons , a group of guardians at the sides of the countries of seas, very great, with the descriptions of the benevolent ones"Najem AlThaqib v.2 p.67-68

63.Imam Al Saadeq pbuh said:"The Companion of the matter pbuh has a house which is said that it is the House of AlHamd(Praise), in it is a lamp that is illuminating ever since he was born until he rises with the sword, it doesn't extinguish" Safeenat AlBihar v.1 p.115 Ilaam AlWara p.431

عبدالواحد بن عبدالله ، عن أحد بن محمد بن رباح ، عن محمد بن العباس ، عن ابن البطائني ، عن أبيه ، عن المفضل قال : سمعت أبا
عبدالله عليه السلام يقول : إن لصاحب الامر بيتا يقال له : بيت الحمد فيه سراج يزهر منذ يوم ولد إلى يوم يقوم بالسيف لايطفى

From Eissa AlKhashab he said: I said to AlHussein son of Ali(a.s):Are you the Companion of the Matter?He said:"No,but the Companion of the Matter is the abandoned one(Tareed),the fugitive(Shareed),Mawtoor by his father,and his nickname is his uncles,he shall carry the sword on his shoulder for eight months". Kamal Al Deen by Sheikh AlSadooq p.318

Sunni narrations:

64.From Abi Sa'eed AlKhudri from the Messenger of Allah s.a.w he said:"From us is AlQaem and from us is AlMansoor and from us is AlSafah and from us is AlMahdi, as for AlQaem the successorship will come to him and he will not shed a drop of blood, as for AlMansoor not a banner will come in its way, as for AlSafah he will shed money and blood, as for AlMahdi he will spread it with justice like how it was spread with oppression" Kanz Al Umal-Mutaqi AlHindi v.14 p.280 h.38688-Tareekh Damashq v.32 p.302

65.Fitan Ibn Hamad who is Sheikh AlBukhari (1/395)hadeeth#1186 narrated from Rashdeen from Ibn Lahee'a from Abi Qabeel from Abdullah son of Umro he said:"After the Mahdi that will take the people of Yemen to their cities,it is then the Mansoor,and then after him the Mahdi that will open the city of Rome by his hand"

66.Fateh Al Bari Sharh Saheeh AlBukhari v.13 p.181 It was said by Abu AlHussein Bani AlMunada:"It is possible by the meaning of the hadeeth in that there will be 12 Caliphates after the Mahdi that will emerge in the end times,for I found in the book of Daniel that if the Mahdi dies,5 men will rule from the oldesgt grandson and 5 from the younger grandson and then he will give successorship to the last one for the caliphate,a man from the son of the older grandson,so then he will rule after him a son and then 12 kings will rule each one of them is an Imam Mahdi."

67.14769-In Tafseer son of Abi Hatem hadeeth#137302628 v.8 Ibn Abi Hatem AlRazi Tafseer Abi Hatem from Ka'ab AlAhbar he said:(They are 12,and when they all pass away,there will be 12 similar to them replacing them,and that is a promise from Allah to this nation and he read:"Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them"And that is the work of Bani Isra'el.)

Continuing with Shia narrations:

68.A hadeeth for instance that doesn't speak about Imam Al Mahdi a.s. but is speaking about a different Mahdi like "Ahmed" is this hadeeth.

Pay very close to attention inshallah :

Narrated from Hathlam son of Basheer I said to Ali son of Alhussein(a.s)describe to me the emergence of the Mahdi and tell me about its details and signs,he said:"Before his emergence is the emergence of a man his name is Awf AlSilmy in the land of AlJizeera(Iraq),his home will be in Tikreet and his killing will be at the mosque of Damascus and then its the emergence of Shuaib son of Saleh from Samarqand and then the Sufyani the cursed one will emerge from Wadi AlYabees and he is the son of Utba son of Abi Sufyan, if the Sufyani appeared the Mahdi would disappear and then he shall emerge after that" Bihar v.52 p.213

حديث حذلم أبن بشير مع الإمام زين العابدين (ع) عن المهدي (ع) فقال الإمام (ع) - ثم يخرج السفياني الملعون من الوادي اليابس وهو من ولد عتبة بن أبي سفيان فإذا ظهر السفياني أختفى المهدي (ع) ثم يخرج بعد ذلك
المصدر : غيبة الطوسي ص294 / بحار الانوار ج52 ص291 / الحوائج والجوائح للراوندي ص1149 / معجم أحاديث المهدي (ع) ج1 ص50 / منتخب الأنوار المضيئة ص50 .
روى حذلم بن بشير قال: قلت لعلي بن الحسين: صف لي خروج المهدي وعرفني دلائله وعلاماته فقال: يكون قبل خروجه خروج رجل يقال له عوف السلمي بأرض الجزيرة ويكون مأواه تكريت وقتله بمسجد دمشق ثم يكون خروج شعيب بن صالح من سمرقند ثم يخرج السفياني الملعون من الوادي اليابس، وهو من ولد عتبة بن أبي سفيان، فإذا ظهر السفياني اختفى المهدي ثم يخرج بعد ذلك.ـ *معجم احاديث الامام المهديج3 –ص 176- بحار الانوار ج53-ص 213



The companion is asking Imam Ali son of Hussain pbuh Zain Al Abideen about the emergence of the Mahdi and the Imam answes him by speaking about the signs which precede and come before Imam Al Mahdi a.s. like the Sufyani l.a. This hadeeth states that the Mahdi has disappeared during the time of the Sufyani's appearance, but how is it possible for the Mahdi to disappear, if the Sufyani is a guaranteed,inevitable sign before Imam Al Mahdi a.s.?And how can the Mahdi disappear without an appearance in the first place?

Abi Abdullah (a.s) said:"Before the rise of the Riser are 5 inevitable signs,Yamani,Sufyani,killing of the pure soul,the cry,landslide in Bayda"Bihar v.52 p.215


The Sufyani is a sign before Imam Al Mahdi a.s. so how can the Mahdi disappear during a sign that comes before him ?Is this logical to any sincere truth seeker? Does this mean that Imam Al Mahdi a.s. appeared before the Sufyani, so we can distort every single hadeeth about the solidified time frame that Ahlulbayt pbut set for the Sufyani l.a preceding Imam Al Mahdi a.s.?!! And how can this be possible when all the hadeeths consider the Sufyani to be a sign which comes before Imam Al Mahdi a.s.? The only solution to this hadeeth is to consider that the Mahdi in this hadeeth is another one, but does it go against Ahlulbayt pbut?If we believe in that there is a Mahdi appearing before the Sufyani and disappears during when the Sufyani l.a appeared? The answer is no, it doesn't contradict and go against Ahlulbayt pbut because there are hadeeths which speak about 12 Mahdis after Imam Al Mahdi a.s which have reached to the point of Tawater(frequently narrated). And some of them are:

From Ahmad son of Muhammad AlaYadi from Ali son of Uqba from his father(Uqba son of Khaled) Abi Abdullah(a.s)he said:"From us after the Riser (a.s)are 12 Mahdis" Mukhtasar Basa'er AlDarajat p.49 Imam Al Saadeq pbuh said:"After the Riser there will be 12 Mahdis from the son of Hussein" p.385/Burhan v.3 p.310/Bihar AlAnwar v.53 p.148
Imam Al Saadeq pbuh said:"After the Riser there will be 11 Mahdis from the son of Hussein" Mukhtasar Basa'er AlDarajat p.38 Gaibat AlToosi p.478/Bihar AlAnwar v.53 p.145
Prophet Muhammad(saw)said:"If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohammed the Mandate/Preserver of the Holy Family of Mohamad Peace be upon them all. These are the twelve Imams. Then there will be twelve Mahdi's after them. then when Allah receiveth him, let him hand it over to his son, the first of the close ones, he has three names, one like mine and my Father's: Abdollah (Servant of God), Ahmad and the third name is The Mahdi (the guided) and he is the first Believer" Gaibat AlToosi p.150-151

Moreover, the first Mahdi Ahmed is the "the first of the close ones", "the first Mahdi", "the first believer" and the son of Imam Al Mahdi a.s. Muhammad son of AlHasan a.s. There is absolutely no solution to this hadeeth:"if the Sufyani appeared the Mahdi would disappear and then he shall emerge after that" until when it becomes essential for us to include the first Mahdi,first believer Ahmed in the timeframe preceding the Sufyani l.a who is the only named Mahdi who fits the character of guider to the straight path before Imam Al Mahdi a.s. Muhammad son of Al Hassan pbuh. And that guider to the straight path..who calls to the possessor...who we must stand up for ...no banner more guided than his banner...is the Yamani, the only man that guides to a path that is straight according to Ahlulbayt pbut before Imam Al Mahdi's emergence. So, we if separate the Yamani from Ahmed, there would be a serious complication and confusion between the two of them, because when we say the "Yamani" we don't know his name but we know that he comes before the Sufyani:

Imam Al Sadeq a.s:"Before the Sufyani is an Egyptian and a Yamani" Bihar Al Anwar v.52 p.210

and when we say "Ahmed" we know he is the first of the 313 and he is the first Mahdi who is infallible mentioned in the Prophet's will and ofcourse" a guider to a straight path" and doesn't enter people into misguidance.

Additionally,the Yamani is a guider to the straight path, and turning away from him leads to hell and the same thing goes for Ahmed whereby turning away from him also leads to hellfire because he is mentioned in the Prophet's will and the Prophet called him the first Mahdi.There is one guiding banner in Age of appearance as Ahlulbayt pbut wouldn't let us take two ways and go to two people before Imam Al Mahdi's emergence like one goes to Ahmed and the other goes to Yamani, and its unwise and selfish to believe in someone because of his description "Yamani" without knowing who he actually is and what he actually is as Ahlulbayt pbut wouldn't mislead us.If we fit Ahmed to be the Yamani, we will realize that it is one man who calls to the possessor and guides to a path that is straight before Imam Al Mahdi's emergence as this is the only best solution in solving the questions that arise concerning the Mahdi disappearing during the timeframe of the Sufyani l.a.

Other Sunni narrations:
69.AlSuyooti in Urf AlWardi with a chain from Saleh son of Abi AlJu'ud he said:"The Mahdi will be 21 years or 22 years and then another after him and he is righteous 24 years and then another who is righteous for 9 years"AlUrf AlWardi in Akhbar AlMahdi LilSuyooti h.251

The narrator is among the Thiqa and Taba'een and from the Rijal of the two Saheehs Mizan AlItidal AlThahabi v.2 p.109 h.3045

70.Fateh AlBari Sharh Saheeh AlBukhari for Ibn Hajar 20/266 #6682 From a long passage he said:Abu AlHussein son of AlMunadi:On the part where he collected about the Mahdi,it possible in the meaning of the hadeeth "(There will be 12 caliphates)meaning that this will happen after the Mahdi who will emerge in the end times,for I found in the book of Daniel,when the Mahdi dies,there will be 5 men ruling from the son of the oldest grandson and then 5 from the son of the younger grandson and then the last one will pass his leadership from the son of the oldest grandson and then his son will rule and 12 kings will reign,each one of them is an Imam Mahdi,Ibn AlMunadi said:"and in the narration of Abi Saleh from IbnAbbas. The Mahdi's name is Muhammad son of Abdullah and he is a man whose beard is dyed in red,the nation will be relieved by him from all the depressions,and his justice will eliminate all the unjustice,and then after him will be 12 men."

71.Sayed Ibn Tawoos:"Salam Alaiko Ya Hujjat Allah on his earth..blessings of Allah be upon you and your Household the benevolent and pure...I get closer to Allah by you and your Household...my Master O Saheb AlZaman peace of Allah be upon you and your Household...Peace of Allah be upon you and your pure Household"
Jamal AlIsboo p.41-42 Bihar AlAnwar v.99 p.215-216

72.Sheikh AlToosi:AlFathel Ibn Shathan from uthman son of Eissa from Saleh son of Abi AlAswad from Abi Abdullah pbuh he said:He mentioned AlSahla and said:"Verily, it is the house of our Saheb if he arrived with his family"

73.Imam Jaafer(a.s)says to O Aba Muhammad the narrator of the hadeeth"As if I see the Riser in the mosque of AlSahla with his family and children.I said:Would that be his house?He said:Yes." Bihar AlAnwar v.52 p.381

74.Imam AlSaadeq pbuh said:"From us after the Messenger pbuhap are 7 Imam successors where obeying them is obligatory, the 7th one is the Riser"

"From us" meaning from Imam AlSaadiq pbuh, and if the 7th one here is meant Imam Al Mahdi pbuh it would not make him the Riser but someone after him and that is "Ahmed".

"It is possible that the 7th one is from him because its apparent from his word"From us" it is an indication to himself and also we say from him[he]AlQaem[with the matter].And the report doesn't have "the seventh one from our first" and if what we say is possible, then the conflict drops"
Gaibat AlToosi p.54

Abu Abdullah pbuh said:"On the head of the seventh one from us is the Faraj(relief)"Gaibat AlToosi p.53

75.So far there are 21 narrations which tell us that there is an Imam after Imam Al Mahdi and 53 narrations proving an offspring,lineage,family,children,successors from Imam Al Mahdi pbuh.

Reading the Zyara of the two Askaris in Thya AlSaliheen it mentions "O Allah hasten the relief of your Wali(guardian)and the son of your Wali(guardian), and make our relief with their relief Ya Arham AlRahimeen(O Most merciful)."P.247 Thya AlSaliheen

So we know from this dua that the Wali is Imam Al Mahdi a.s. and the son of the Wali of Imam Al Mahdi a.s. also exists according to this dua. Not only that, but this dua says make our relief with their relief, so we even expect a relief(Faraj)from the son of the Wali and we should hope that our relief be with his.

76.O Allah send blessings upon the Mustafa Muhammad and AlMurtatha Ali and AlBatool Fatima AlZahra and the two cubs Hasan and Hussain and the Master of the worshippers Ali and AlBaqir Muhammad and AlSadeq Jaafar and AlKathem Musa and AlRitha Ali and AlTaqi Muhammad and AlNaqi Ali and AlZaki AlAskari AlHasan and AlHujja AlQaim and the SUCCESSOR,THE BRAVE IMAM

This is a Talsam for Tuesday in the Book Thya AlSaliheen that mentions an Imam after AlHujja AlQaim.

Abi Abdullah pbuh said:"A report you know about is better than 10 that you narrate. For every truth there is a reality and for every reason there is light. And then he said: By Allah, we don't count the man to be from the Shias to be a Faqeeh(jurisprudent)until its toned for him, so then he knows the tone."
Gaiba AlNumani p.143-144

قال أبو عبد الله (عليه السلام): خبر تدريه خير من عشر ترويه، إن لكل حق حقيقة، ولكل صواب نورا، ثم قال: إنا والله لا نعد
الرجل من شيعتنا فقيها حتى يلحن له فيعرف اللحن،

So Ahlulbayt pbut have a tone in their words that sometimes requires you to go to another narration to harmonize the understanding and so that the pitch or tone becomes much more beautiful and clear. And its like when you harmonize (something) in terms of color. "the rich orange color of the wood tones beautifully with the yellow roses" and same goes through the narrations of Ahlulbayt pbut.

Likewise, the same holds true with the narrations of the Yamani; one cannot just stop at a single narration without first understanding the tone of their narrations in order to harmonize everything that they are saying. So its not about simply reporting narrations, its understanding it. Sometimes people often show narrations without comprehending a single letter, perhaps they are doing it to get rewarded and for sure they are, but the point is to understand the narration and comprehend it.
#57882
77.From Abdul AlAli son of Ayun he said: I heardAba Abdullah pbuh saying:"Allah the Exalted and Mighty specialized Ali pbuh with the will of the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and what relates to it, it is for him. So AlHasan and AlHussain accepted this for him. And then his will was to AlHasan and AlHussain received that from AlHassan until the affair went to AlHussain and no one can dispute with him about it from those before with what was for him. So Ali son of AlHussain claimed it by the saying of Allah the Exalted and Mighty"But kindred by blood have prior rights against each other in the Book of Allah." And so it will not be after Ali son of AlHussain except in the offspring and the offspring of the offspring"
Ilal AlShara'e v.1 p.207

Sheikh Nathem AlUqaily:
So we have to ask why did Imam AlSaadeq pbuh say:"In the offspring and the offspring of the offspring" whereby he repeated the word of offspring twice! The word offspring(Aqaab)is the plural of (Aqab) and it conforms with the 9 infallibles pbut, so there is no need to repeat it once again so that his words become correct!! So there must be a reason to benefit from this other meaning to the word of "offspring[Aqaab]" the second one. This is because the Imams pbut don't speak more than what is needed(Far are they from that) and they are the Masters in eloquence and fluency. And what is said(the best of words are from what is brief and leading) and who ponders over this narration with respect to some of the narrations, he will find that this means that the Imamate after AlHussain will pass to two stages that one differs from the other, with something about the favor, and they are: the stage of the Imamate and the stage of guiding, meaning that the offspring of the Imams and the offspring of the Mahdis after Imam Al Mahdi pbuh, and that is why he(Imam Al Saadiq pbuh)repeated the word offspring twice(The offspring and the offspring of the offspring).



From AlMufathel son of Omar from Jaafar son of Muhammad pbut he said:I asked about the saying of Allah the Exalted and Almighty"And when Abraham was trialed by his Lord with words and so he fulfilled them" what are these words? He said: They are words that Adam received from his Lord, so Allah forgave him that he said:"I ask you by the right of Muhammad and Ali and Fatima and AlHasan and AlHussain to forgive me" So Allah forgave him, He is the Oft-forgiving and the Intensely merciful. So I said to him:"O son of the Messenger of Allah , what does the Exalted and Mighty mean by:"And so he fulfilled them", he said: He meant, he fulfilled them until the Riser(AlQaem) 12 Imams from the son of Hussain pbut. AlMufathel said:I said to him:O son of the Messenger of Allah, tell me about the saying of Allah"And He made it a remaining word in his offspring" He meant the Imamate by this, Allah the Most High made it after AlHussain until the day of judgement day. So he said:I said to him: O son of the Messenger of Allah, so how did the Imamate become in the son of Hussain and not in the son of AlHasan pbut, and they are both sons of the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and the two cubs and Masters of the youths of the people of paradise? So he said pbuh: Moses and Aaron were Prophets,Messengers and brothers, so Allah the Exalted and Mighty made Prophethood in the line of Aaron and not in the line of Moses pbut. And no one can say, why Allah did this. And the Imamate is the Khilafa of Allah the Exalted and Mighty on this earth and no can say , why Allah made it in the line of AlHussain and not in the line of AlHassan pbut, because Allah the Praiseworthy and Most High is the Most Wise in his actions"He cannot be questioned for His acts, but they will be questioned (for theirs)."[21:23]
Kamal AlDeen p.358-359

Sheikh Nathem AlUqaily
In this narration, Abdu Abdullah pbuh firstly clarified that Allah fulfilled the words in the offspring of AlHussain pbuh until the Riser pbuh and then he continued with his other answer that Allah made the Imamate in the offspring of Hussain pbuh until the day of judgement. And we understand from this that Allah the Most High, made it a word remaining in his line, meaning the Imam after Imam Al Mahdi pbuh which was completed by him pbuh, meaning the Imamate of the Mahdis. Or say the rank of guidance that comes after the rank of AlWilaya and Imamate, and this understanding becomes more close and clear if it was completed understood for us that the Qyama(judgement day)doesn't happen directly after the death of Imam Al Mahdi a.s. But his age in the nation of Divine justice is very short as what the narrations tell and there will be after him Imams and Proofs who will lead the Nation of justice that Allah promised to humanity.

78.From Abi AlSa'eb he said: I said Abu Abdullah Jaafar son of Muhammad pbuh:The night is 12 hours and day is 12 hours, and the months are 12 months and the Imams are 12 and the captains are 12 and Ali is an hour from the 12 hours and its the saying of Allah the Exalted and Mighty:"And we prepared for who belies on the hour hellfire". Gaibat AlNumani p.87

So there are 12 Imams(hours) that live in the night(nation of unjustice) and another 12 captains(hours) that live in day. So this hadeeth is mentioning 24 men, 12 Imams and 12 captains.

This hadeeth describes Imam Ali a.s. being covered at night(the nation of unjustice).

From Muhammad son of Muslim he said: I asked Aba Jaafar pbuh about the saying of Allah the Exalted and Mighty:"And the night when it covers" he said: The night in this place is someone who covered the Prince of the believers in his nation that became for him and the Prince of the believers became patient in their nation until it ended: "And day when it manifests" he said: day is the Riser a.s., from us Ahlulbayt, that when he rises he defeated the nation of falsehood and the Quran set forth examples to the people and Allah spoke to his Prophet by it, no one knows it other than us"Tafser AlQummi v.2 p.425

79.Salam Alaikom warahmatullah wabarakatu

Tablet of Fatima a.s. narrated from Imam Jaafar a.s from his father Imam Al Baqir who copied it from Jabbir Abdullah AlAnsary speaks about 13 successors!

Book:Interpretation of the apparent verses about the merits of the pure offspring volume 1: From the Fatiha of the book to Surat AlSajda until the end of the Quran.

Author: The Faqeeh and interpreter AlAlaama the knowledgeable AlSayed Sharaf AlDeen Ali. Investigated and published by: The school of Imam AlMahdi a.j in the Hawza AlIlmya. Holy Qom.

AlMajlesy called him the honorable one of religion v.1 p.13
Hur Al Amely called him in Amal AlAamal v.2 p.131 "He was a great man , a Muhadeth and righteous" p.176 "He is a scholar and Faqeeh"

AlTastari in AlMaqaabis called him :"A great scholar and pure Faqeeh" p.19

And about this meaning, what has been narrated by the Muqalid son of Gaaleb AlHasan from his Rijal with a connected chain of transmission(Isnaad) to Abdullah son of Sinaan AlAsady From Jaafar son of Muhammad pbut he said: Abi Jaabir son of Abdullah said: I need something from you that I need to meet with you about. So when he met with him after a few days he said to him: tell me about the tablet that you saw on the hand of my mother Fatima pbuh. Jabbir said: I testify for Allah that I've entered to Fatima the daughter of the Messenger of Allah pbuhap to congratulate her for her son AlHussain pbuh. And so on her hands was a green ambergris tablet. It has a writing that is more illuminating than the sun and more sweeter than the smell of pure musk. So I said: What is this O daughter of the Messenger of Allah? So she said: This is a tablet that Allah the Exalted and Mighty passed to my father.

It has the name of my father and name of Ali and names of the executors after him from my sons. So I asked her to pass it to me so I can copy it. So she did so. And so he(Imam AlBaqir a.s.)said: Can you present it to me? He(companion)said: Yes. So Jabbir went to his house and came with a Saheefa(booklet) made of red leather. So he said to him: Look at your Saheefa(booklet)so that I can read it to you, so in the Saheefa it said:

In the Name of Allah the Abundantly Merciful and the Intensely Merciful, this a book from Allah the Glorified and All-knowledgeable. The Trustworthy Spirit sent it down upon Muhammad the Seal of the Prophets, O Muhammad"the number of months to Allah are 12 months in the book of Allah on the day when Allah created the heavens and earth. From them are four Hurum, this is the upright religion, so do not oppress yourselves by it." O Muhammad exalt my names and thank my graces. O Muhammad, I have chosen you over the Prophets and chose your executor Ali over the executors. I made AlHasan the store of my knowledge after the completion of the time of his father. And AlHussain is among the best of the children from the first ones and the last ones. In him the Imamate will be firm in his offspring. And Ali son of AlHussain is the greatest of the worshippers. And AlBaqir of the knowledge, the caller to my path upon the method of truth. And Jaafar AlSaadiq(honest)in his words and work. After him a Fitna will be dressed, that is calamitous, so woe and all the woe to who lied on the offspring of my Prophet and the greatest of my creations. And Musa who restrains anger. And Ali AlRitha, an Ifreet(type of shaytan)who is a Kaffir will kill him. He will be burried in AlMedina that the righteous servant built near the most evil creation of Allah. And Muhammad the guider to my path, the look alike of his virtuous grandfather. And Ali AlHadi, the caller to my path and the protector of my sanctities and the Riser for my followers. And AlHasan the benevolent, from him comes out the one with 2 names successor of Muhammad. He will emerge at the end of times on his head is a white turban that shades him from the sun. A caller will call with an eloquent tongue that the Thaqalan will hear from between the two horizons.(this is the Mahdi
of the family of Muhammad), so he will spread the earth with justice after it has been filled with oppression
"

Who is the successor of Muhammad from the line of Imam AlHasan a.s.??This is the tablet of Fatima AlZahra a.s. from the book Ta'weel
AlAyaat.Taweel Alayaat is written even way before Bihar AlAnwar.
