    The Mahdi? (OP)


    The Mahdi
    20/11/79 CE
    1st Muharram 1400 AH


    The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi waSalam) said black flags will appear from the lands of the east, and they shall fight and they shall kill you like no other nation has been killed.

    When you see them - then give them allegiance - even if you have to crawl over snow to get to them, because they shall have the khalifah of Allaah - the Mahdi in their midst.


    Bismillaahi Rahmaani Raheem [In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious - Most Merciful]


    The 20th of Novermber 1979 appeared to be a normal day in Makkah. To be sure it was a unique and auspicious day for it so happened that this day corresponded to the 1st of Muharram 1400 After Hijrah [AH] - the dawn to a new century, the beginning of a new era.

    But little did muslims know as they shuffled and jostled one another in the crowd outside of the haram in Makkah to enter the Masjid Al Haraam to pray the Salaat ul Fajr, that this day was to mark of the most horrific and evil days in the history of the Ummah. As was typical and still is, a number of coffins and byers were lead to the gates of the Haram and the crowds made space for them in order to give them the right of way - out of respect to the dead, and to hasten their funeral procession. But it was not dead bodies that respect was being given to - but rather rifles, guns, ammunition and other weapons. For indeed hidden under the white sheets were not corpses, but weapons intended to create corpses. And they were smuggled under the very eyes of the guards who were there to protect the Haram.

    When the Fajr prayer began, the people lined up to pray to Allaah subhaanahu wa ta'aala. In the beautiful air, in the beautiful scent surrounding the Ka'abah. And as the Imaam finished the prayer and said the salaam, signalling the new day - the dawn of a new century. Suddenly a group of men pulled out their guns and other weapons - took control of the microphone, and began announcing that the promised Mahdi was in their midst, and that he had come finally to end this world of the deceit of the evil the corruption that was rampant at their times, and he would fill the world with justice, just as it had been filled before with injustice.



    The name of this announcer was Juhaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Saif Al Utaibi, and the name of this supposed Mahdi was just as the hadith had predicted it. His name was Muhammad ibn Abdullah, who was from the pure arab tribe of Al-Kahtaan, from the descendants of the Quraysh. This Mahdi - Muhammad ibn Abdullah made his way to the Ka'abah - stood between the Black Stone and the Station of Ibrahim and began taking the oath of allegiance from his followers. Juhaiman then demanded that all the muslims in the Haram should do the same - for here he claimed was the promised Mahdi. Here he said is the Mahdi who is fulfilling the signs mentioned in the hadith, his name is Muhammad, and he is the son of Abdullah. He is the Mahdi coming from Medina, he is the Mahdi who was to seek refuge in the Haram in Makkah, and of the signs is that he would take the pledge of allegiance at the Ka'abah between the Station of Ibrahim and the Black Stone. All the signs were clear and apparent - here is the Mahdi, why not give pledge of allegiance to him?

    Simultaneously the followers of Juhaiman all around the Haram overpowered the guards of the entrances. And ofcourse the guards were unprepared for something of this nature. They shut down and barricated the doors of the Haram. Bewildered and confused the muslim masses, thousands of men, women and children were completely dumb struck. Many of them simply had no understanding of what was going on, after all many of them never even spoke arabic. Others did not realise the gravity of the situation.

    Afterall this was the Ka'abah, the holiest place on the earth. So who could possibly assume that anyone would try to do anything to taint its sanctity and image. But a few people realised the fanaticism which was unfolding infront of their very eyes. Including the Imaam of the Haram, he immediately disguised himself in the crowd. And 3 days later when Juhaiman let the women and children out, he managed to sneak out of the Haram along with them and he was one of the primary sources that the authorities could rely on to understand what was going on in the Haram.



    For 8 days after this announcement, the followers of Juhaiman held the Haram itself hostage. No-one was allowed to leave initially, and those trapped inside were held hostage until finally when food ran short - Juhaiman was forced initially to let the women and children out and eventually the men out aswell. But Juhaiman and his own followers sealed the doors of the Haram shut. And they barricaded themselves underground the basement of the Haram. The Tawaaf - the only perpetual act that muslims continue to do non stop for hundreds and thousands of years - stopped. Even the congregational prayer was not called. Instead of calling people to prayer - the minarets were used for snipers to shoot down any guards who dared to try to approach the Haram.


    The Muslim Ummah was stunned. Was it even concievable that a group of Muslims take the Haram itself hostage? At the same time many people; including students of knowledge and even 'Ulama (Scholars) - were confused. Was it possible that this person could truelly be the Mahdi? After all - some of the signs had truelly been met. A person had sought refuge in the Haram - one sign, his name was Muhammad - another, the son of Abdullah - another sign. He was from the Quraysh - yet another sign.

    Allegiance was indeed given to him between the Black Stone and the Station of Ibrahim as the athaab and the hadith predicted. No matter how remote the possibility - the question lurked in the minds of these people - What if this really was the Mahdi?



    For if it were - the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi waSalam also told us how towards the end of time - an army will march towards the Haram in order to attack someone who had sought refuge in it. And that the earth itself shall swallow up the earth itself the entire army and destroy them? What if this was the Mahdi, and any army they sent would be the army the earth would swallow up? After deliberating over the call of this illegid Mahdi and the various signs the hadith had predicted he had, and also taking into account the tactics that this group was using to spread the call - the Highest Council of Senior Scholars issued a Fatwa (Religious Verdict) stating that these people were renegades, and that it was permissible to launch an offensive attack against these rebels in order that this Haram be rid of them.



    Based upon this fatwa, Commandoes - armed with plans devised by Military Experts & Strategic Analysts stormed the Ka'abah, equipped with tanks, hundreds of military personnell, and other assault weapons. In the shade of the first house ever built on earth for the worship of Allaah - built by the Prophet Ibraheem; an armed combat ensued.

    Both sides exchanged fire - the intecrate layout and architecture of the Haram proved to be adventacious for these rebels. For every pillar became a shield behind where they could hide. And the multiple floors of the Haram proved to be a veritable maze. The Sacred Masjid became a War-Zone.

    Many people were killed, including the supposed Mahdi himself. It is unclear how he died, some rumours have it that he was killed by some of his own followers when he realised that this was a gross mistake and wanted to turn himself in. In any case - when the supposed Mahdi died, many of his followers realised that this could not possible be the Mahdi, and with his death - they surrendered themselves to the forces. Others including Juhaiman himself - who was the actual ring leader fought on, using tear-gas, throwing in smoking tires and other ammunition - the Commandoes who stormed the Haram tried to extragate Juhaiman and his core followers. But they had taken shelter in the basement of the Haram, and they were not able to bring them out.


    Finally as a last-resort - they flooded the basement of the Haram with water, and threw in live-electric wires. Having no option - Juhaiman and his followers battered and bruised, covered in smoke and sut - surrendered themselves. Photographers managed to capture images, that still bring chills and shivers to those who see them to this day. 61 people were caught alive, the rest over 100 died in the battle inside the Haram. All of these 61 were soon executed in cities all around the Kingdom.


    This incident brought to the attention of the entire world; Muslim and Non Muslim, a concept that had hitherto been neglected or side-lined for many years. That of a being called the Mahdi. What exactly is the concept of the Mahdi, is it a superstition borrowed from other religions? Or perhaps some kind of myth that muslims have invented?

    The answer to these questions, and more is the topic of the present series of lectures.

    Re: The Mahdi?

    The Mahdi

    THE Mahdi will come at the end of time; he is one of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs and Imâms. He is not the Mahdi who is expected by the Shiah, who they claim will appear from a tunnel in Samarra. This claim of theirs has no basis in reality nor in any reliable source. They allege that his name is Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Askari, and that he went into the tunnel when he was five years old. The matter we intend to discuss has been proven by Ahadîth narrated from the Prophet - sallallâhu ’alayhi wa sallam -: that the Mahdi will appear at the end of time. I believe that he will appear before Jesus the son of Mary comes down, as the Ahadîth indicate.

    Hajjaj said that he heard 'Alî say, The Prophet said, "Even if there were only one day left for the world, Allah would send a man from among us to fill the world with justice, just as it had been filled with oppression and justice." (Ahmad).

    'Alî said, The Prophet said, "The Mahdi is one of us, from among the people of my household. In one night Allah will inspire him and prepare him to carry out his task successfully." (Ahmad and Ibn Majah.)
    'Alî said, whilst looking at his son al-Hasan, This son of mine is a Sayyid (master), as the Prophet named him. Among his descendants there will be man named after your Prophet. He will resemble him in behaviour but not in looks. Then he told them the report which mentions that the earth will be filled with justice. (Abû Dâwûd)
    Abû Dâwûd devoted a chapter of his Sunan to the subject of the Mahdi. At the beginning of this chapter he quoted the Hadîth of Jabir ibn Samrah, in which the Prophet said, "This religion will remain steadfast until twelve caliphs have ruled over you." (According to another report he said, "This religion will remain strong until twelve caliphs have ruled over you.")

    Jabir said, The people cheered and shouted Allâhu akbar! Then the Prophet whispered something. I asked my father What did he say? My father said, He said, All of them will be from Quraysh. Another report says that when the Prophet returned to his house, Quraysh came to him and asked, What will happen after that? He said, Then there will be tribulation and killing.

    Abû Dâwûd reported a Hadîth from 'Abdullâh ibn Masud: The Prophet said, "If there were only one day left for the world, that day would be lengthened until a man from among my descendants or from among the people of my household, was sent; his name will be the same as my name, and his fathers name will be the same as my fathers name. He will fill the earth with justice and fairness, just as it will have been filled with injustice and oppression. The world will not end until a man of my household, whose name is the same as mine, holds away."

    'Abdullâh said, The Prophet said, "A man from my household, whose name is like mine, will take power." (at-Tirmidhî.) In another report, from Abû Hurayrah, the Prophet said, "If there were only one day left for this world, Allah would lengthen it until he took power." Abû Said said, The Prophet said, "The Mahdi will be one of my descendants; he will have a high forehead and a hooked nose. He will fill the earth with justice and fairness just as it was filled with injustice and oppression, and he will rule for seven years. (Abû Dâwûd)

    Umm Salamah reported that the Prophet said, "People will begin to differ after the death of a Khalifah. A man from the people of Madînah will flee to Makkah. Some of the people of Makkah will come to him and drag him out against his will; they will swear allegiance to him between al-Rukn and al-Maqam. An army will be sent against him from Syria; it will be swallowed up in the desert between Makkah and Madînah. When the people see this, groups of people from Syria and Iraq will come and swear allegiance to him. Then a man from Quraysh whose mother is from Kalb will appear and send an army against them, and will defeat them; this will be known as the Battle of Kalb. Whoever does not witness the spoils of this battle will miss much! The Mahdi will distribute the wealth, and will rule the people according to the Sunnah of the Prophet. Then he will die, and the Muslims will pray for him." (Abû Dâwûd)

    'Alî said, The Prophet said, "A man named al-Harith ibn Hirath will come from Transoxania. His army will be led by a man named Mansur. He will pave the way for and establish the government of the family of Muhammad, just as Quraysh established the government of the Messenger of Allah. Every believer will be obliged to support him." (Abû Dâwûd)

    'Abdullâh ibn al-Harith ibn Juz al-Zubaydi said, The Prophet said, A people will come out of the East who will pave the way for the Mahdi. (Ibn Majah.)

    'Abdullâh said, Whilst we were with the Prophet, some young men from Banu Hashim approached us. When the Prophet saw them, his eyes filled with tears and the colour of his face changed. I said, We can see something has changed in your face, and it upsets us. The Prophet said, "We are the people of a Household for whom Allah has chosen the Hereafter rather than this world. The people of my Household (Ahl al-Bayt) will suffer a great deal after my death, and will be persecuted until a people carrying black banners will come out of the east. They will instruct the people to do good, but the people will refuse; they will fight until they are victorious, and the people do as they asked, but they will not accept it from them until they hand over power to a man from my household. Then the earth will be filled with fairness, just as it had been filled with injustice. If any of you live to see this, you should go to him even if you have to crawl across ice."
    This text refers to the rule of the Abbasids, as we have mentioned above in the text referring to the beginning of their rule in 132 AH. It also indicates that the Mahdi will appear after the Abbasids, and that he will be one of the Ahl al-Bayt, a descendant of Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet, through Hasan, not Husayn, as mentioned in the Hadîth from 'Alî ibn Abi Talib; and Allah knows best.

    Thwaban said, The Prophet said, "Three men will be killed at the place where your treasure is. Each of them will be the son of a Khalifah, and none of them will get hold of the treasure. Then the black banners will come out of the East, and they will slaughter you in a way which has never been seen before. Then he said something which I do not remember; then, If you see him, go and give him your allegiance, even if you have to crawl over ice, because he is the Khalifah of Allah, the Mahdi." (Ibn Majah.)

    The treasure referred to in this text is the treasure of the Ka'bah. Towards the end of time, three of the sons of the Khalifahs will fight to get hold of it, until the Mahdi appears. He will appear from the East, not from the tunnel of Samarra, as the Shiah claim; they believe that he is in this tunnel now, and they are waiting for him to emerge at the end of time. There is no evidence for it in any book or Saheeh tradition, and there is no benefit in believing this.
    The truth of the matter is that the Mahdi whose coming is promised at the end of time will appear from the East, and people will swear allegiance to him at the Ka'bah, as some Ahadîth indicate. At the time of the Mahdi, there will be peace and prosperity, with Abûndant crops and wealth, strong rulers, and Islam will be well-established.

    Abû Said said, By Allah every ruler we have had has been worse than the previous one, and every year has been worse than the year before, but I heard the Prophet say, Among your rulers will be one who will give out wealth freely, without counting it. A man will come and ask him for money, and he will say take; the man will spread his cloak out and the ruler will pour money into it. The Prophet spread out a thick cloak he had been wearing, to demonstrate the mans actions; then he gathered it up by its corners and said, Then the man will take it and leave. (Ahmad)

    P.s: How to post bigger pictures? lol


    I've a lot of interest in the topic of Mahdi and would look forward to more posts from you people! =]


    About the treasures of Kaaba' I don't know what they are. I mean hadith has a different kind of meaning. It might be that the treasure is a spiritual one and not a material one. For example, there is a hadith which mentions that the river Eupharates would be dried up near the end of times revealing a mountain of gold and people would fight for it and there will be much bloodshed and if 100 people are fighting for it, 99 would die! so one author Harun Yahya (i don't agree with everything he says. just giving a refernce) says that a dam was bulit on Eupharates which dried it all and oil wells were discovered in it etc...

    So maybe the "treasures of Kaaba" is something like that. Allahu Alam!

    You need to research. I have notice your most of posts are misleading.

    Re: The Mahdi?

    the following video was removed from youtube on all channels which had the video on it. So on wake up project, some members were concerned about the removal of it. Thankfully I had already downloaded the video years before and so i slapped the video into after effects and slapped a short intro into it and then uploaded to youtube. Here it is:



    The speaker in the video, shaikh Issa Badwan, seems to think that the Mahdi is also the same person as the youth who will recognise the Dajjal at al Jurf (7 km north west of Medina where the Kingdom Palace - also dubbed the Dajjal Palace built on Jabal Habshi)

    He is clearly mistaken.

    The reason being is: After Dajjal kills the young man and raises him back to life, the Dajjal will then focus his attention on Jerusalem because news reaches him that the Mahdi is there...

    ...How did Shaikh Issa Badwan make this massive error?
