Question to Dar ul Ifta Deoband

کیا نزول مسیح اور نزول امام مہدی پر ایمان رکھنا لازم ہے (اس کے بغیر مسلمان نہیں)؟ میں نے سناہے کہ نزول مسیح پر ایمان لاناصحیح ہے جب کہ نزول مہدی کے عقیدہ (نظریہ) شیعہ حضرات سے آیا ہے؟ براہ کرم، اس پر روشنی ڈالیں۔ 

It is must to believe in Descent of E’sa and Imam Mahdi (one cannot be muslim without it)? I have heard that it is correct to have belief in Descent of E’sa, where as the concept regarding descent of Mahdi has come from Shi’as. Please shed some light on it

One of the main points of differences held between Shias and Sunnis is, that Shias believe that It is Allah who sends Imam. In other words, Imamat is from Allah’s side. Let us see that the last of Imams, the one who is awaited, Imam al Mahdi (asws); what do narrations tell us about him. We find


حَدَّثَنَا حَجَّاجٌ، وَأَبُو نُعَيْمٍ، قَالَا: حَدَّثَنَا فِطْرٌ، عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ أَبِي بَزَّةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الطُّفَيْلِ، قَالَ حَجَّاجٌ: سَمِعْتُ عَلِيًّا رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، يَقُولُ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص: ” لَوْ لَمْ يَبْقَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا يَوْمٌ، لَبَعَثَ اللَّهُ رَجُلًا مِنَّا، يَمْلَؤُهَا عَدْلًا كَمَا مُلِئَتْ جَوْرًا “، قَالَ أَبُو نُعَيْمٍ: ” رَجُلًا مِنّي “، قَالَ: وَسَمِعْتُهُ مَرَّةً يَذْكُرُهُ، عَنْ حَبِيبٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الطُّفَيْلِ، عَنْ عَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ ص

I had seen a few people who had been talking about waqafiyya. It was a sect which was formed after the death of Imam Musa (a.s); and claimed that He was the last of Imams.

Now, anyone who has read Islamic literature would be well versed with the word that the only number for Caliphs or Amirs or Imams, which is present in Shia & Sunni sources alike…………that is 12.

It can easily be said that there is Tawatur on this subject.

It is like a lot many people telling you that there is raining outside, even those who are enemies to each other, and are in habit of contradicting each other, otherwise.

Let us see an authentic narration in this regard

We find

رقم الحديث: 4082
(حديث مرفوع) حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى وَأَحْمَدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ , قَالَا : حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّزَّاقِ , عَنْ سُفْيَانَ الثَّوْرِيِّ , عَنْ خَالِدٍ الْحَذَّاءِ , عَنْ أَبِي قِلَابَةَ , عَنْ أَبِي أَسْمَاءَ الرَّحَبِيِّ , عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ , قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ” يَقْتَتِلُ عِنْدَ كَنْزِكُمْ ثَلَاثَةٌ , كُلُّهُمُ ابْنُ خَلِيفَةٍ , ثُمَّ لَا يَصِيرُ إِلَى وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمْ , ثُمَّ تَطْلُعُ الرَّايَاتُ السُّودُ مِنْ قِبَلِ الْمَشْرِقِ , فَيَقْتُلُونَكُمْ قَتْلًا لَمْ يُقْتَلْهُ قَوْمٌ , ثُمَّ ذَكَرَ شَيْئًا لَا أَحْفَظُهُ , فَقَالَ : فَإِذَا رَأَيْتُمُوهُ فَبَايِعُوهُ , وَلَوْ حَبْوًا عَلَى الثَّلْجِ , فَإِنَّهُ خَلِيفَةُ اللَّهِ الْمَهْدِيُّ ” .

This article is taken from the work of brother Ibn Hasan, and it can be seen here

This article is about how Imam appoint his succcessor during his lifetime and ask their companion to follow him after me. This Chain of Succession was Started by our Noble Prophet Muhammed (sawas) and after that every Imam before dying or during his presence nominated the succeeding Imam and this chain of succession came to an end after our final Imam was elected. Who Shall fill this earth with Justice ie Imam Al-Qaim(as) (may Allah hasten the reapperence of our imam). Thus this fulfill the prophecy of 12 Guided Caliphs by our Prophet.Now let us see the Narration which shows how every Imam was appointed.


I have already mentioned opinion of Khomaini about this 

Let me share some narration in regards to this topic




We find
2- حدثنا أحمد بن محمد عن علي بن الحكم عن سيف بن عميرة عن داود بن فرقد قال سألته عن قول الله عز و جل إِنّا أَنْزَلْناهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ وَ ما أَدْراكَ ما لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ قال نزل فيها ما يكون من السنة إلى السنة من موت أو مولود قلت له إلى من فقال إلى من عسى أن يكون إن الناس في تلك الليلة في صلاة و دعاء و مسألة و صاحب هذا الأمر في شغل تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِكَةُ إليه بأمور السنة من غروب الشمس إلى طلوعها مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْر سَلامٌ هِيَ له إلى أن يطلع الفجر. 

Khomaini writes in his book Adab-us-Salat 

Since Laila-tul-Qadr is the night of appearance of control of Malakoot/empire/dominion of Wali-e-Kamil; so there are changes in the condition of Universe by Wali-e-Kamil and Imam of the time. Today, He is our Leader and Maula, Syed Hujjat ibn Hasan asws {so these changes are made via Him}. So He can increase or decrease the pace of what He wants; increase or decrease the Rizq of what He wants. And this capability is a reflection and appearance of Desire of Almighty, and is under the Orders of Allah. 

{Adab us Salat, Khomaini, urdu translation, page 432, printed by Dar ut Thaqafa tul Islamia, Pakistan}

Please note that  I have not translated this part word-to-word, rather I have tried to convey the meaning due to the fact that the language used is very tough


I would like to start this thread which is basically a translation from Urdu article

A group on scholars of ahlusunnah have said in order to negate the Shia concept regarding Imam Mahdi asws that, the name of his father is Abdullah

One of these scholars is, ibn Taimiyya

He said in his Minhaj us Sunnah

أن الاثنى عشرية الذين ادّعوا أن هذا هو مذهبهم، مهديهم اسمه محمد بن الحسن. والمهدي المنعوت الذي وصفه النبي صلي الله عليه وسلم اسمه محمد بن عبد اللّه‏. ولهذا حذفت طائفة ذكر الأب من لفظ الرسول حتى لا يناقض ما كذبت. وطائفة حرّفته، فقالت: جده الحسين، وكنيته أبو عبد اللّه‏، فمعناه محمد بن أبي عبد اللّه‏، وجعلت الكنية اسما.

ابن تيميه الحراني الحنبلي، ابوالعباس أحمد عبد الحليم (متوفاى 728 هـ)، منهاج السنة النبوية، ج8،* ص254 ـ 260، تحقيق: د. محمد رشاد سالم، ناشر: مؤسسة قرطبة، الطبعة: الأولى، 1406هـ.

Twelver Shias claim that it is their religion that their Mahdi, his name is Mohammad ibn al Hasan. But the reality is that the one who was mentioned bby Holy Prophet asws, his name is Mohammad bin Abdullah. So a group of Shias have removed the wordings {name of his father is name of my father} so that it does not clash with their lies. And another group in them, they said his grand father would be Hussein asws, and his kuniyyat is Abu Abdullah. This means his name is Mohammad bin Abu Abdullah, so placed the kuniyyat instead of name

[Minhaj us Sunnah, 8/254-260]
