Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Time and The Golden Age

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) Time and The Golden Age

Many hadiths indicate the existence of a period when the Islamic moral values will pervade earth. This period, known as the Golden Age, will last for more than half a century and, in many ways, will resemble "the Age of Bliss" of our Prophet (saas).

According to one hadith, people will be so content that they will spend their days with no idea as to how time passes and how one day turns into the next. They will pray to Allah to prolong their lives in order to receive more benefits from these graces. Another hadith states that;

The younger ones wish they were grown-ups, while the adults wish they were younger... The good become even better, and even the wicked ones are treated well. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 17)

Unprecedented Abundance in the Golden Age

There is Hazrat Mahdi (as) in my community. People will come to him and say: "O Mahdi, give to me, too. Give to me, too!" Hazrat Mahdi (as) will give him as much as he can carry in his clothes. (Hadith at-Tirmidhi, Kitab al-Fitan, B. 53; Sunan Ibn Majah, Kitab al-Fitan, B 34, H 4083)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come from my community. My community will enjoy such well-being in those days that the like of which has never been seen before. The ground will give forth foods and will hide (hold back) nothing. Goods will be accumulated considerable. (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/347)

At that time, all members of my community, the good and the bad, will be blessed with blessing the like of which has never been seen. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 16)

A person will sow a few handfuls of seeds, but will reap 700 handfuls … (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 164)

In his time, flowing rivers will increase their waters. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will bring forth treasures… (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 36)

Definitely possessions will be in abundance then, flowing like water. Yet no one will (condescend) to take any. (Ash-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 464)

The earth will give out all its riches in the form of gold and silver... (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 197)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will fill the hearts of Muhammad's community with riches, and his justice will enfold them so much so that when a herald is commanded to cry out: "Whoever is in need, let him come to me," no more than one person will come. That person will make requests. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will say: "Go to the treasurer and let him give to you." When he goes to the treasurer, he will receive goods in plenty. But then he will feel remorse and say: "Am I in greater need than everyone else? Nobody went but me," and he will seek to give back those goods. Then the treasurer will say him: "What we give, we do not take back." (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 13)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] THE EARTH WILL TOSS UP ITS TREASURES. (Mikyaal al-Makaarem, vol. 1, p. 46)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] The HIDDEN TREASURES AND MINES of the earth will come to the fore. People will actually see these treasures above the ground. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol 52, p.337; Iqdud Durar, p. 149; Mo'jam ahadeeth al-Imam al-Mahdi (as), vol. 1, p. 230 narrating from Sahih Muslim)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] MERCY WILL RAIN FROM THE SKIES. TREES WILL BE LOADED WITH FLOWERS AND THE EARTH WILL MANIFEST ITS GREENERY. (Iqdud Durar, pp. 43-44; Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 316 narrating from Khesaal; Mikyaal al-Makaarem, vol. 1, p. 101, 247)

STREETS (streets will be very big and wide) WILL BE INCREASED during the government (spiritual dominion) of Imam Mahdi (as) (i.e. roads will be vast and expansive) (Bihar al-Anwar, vol 52, p. 333; Mikyaal al-Makaarim, vol. 1, p. 294 narrating from the occultation of Sheikh Tusi)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] RIVERS, INUNDATED WITH WATER, WILL BE FLOWING ALL OVER AND WATER WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL AND SUNDRY. (Iqdud Durar, p. 149; Saafi Gulpaygani, Muntakhab al-Asar, p. 157)

During that era [in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)], THE NUMBER OF CATTLE WILL BE ON THE RISE and people will derive maximum benefits from them. (Tarikh maa Ba'd al-Zuhoor, p. 772)

Due to the holy being of Imam az-Zaman [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] goodness and BLESSINGS WILL INCREASE MANIFOLD. (Saafi Gulpaygani, Muntakhab al-Asar, p. 157)

During this era [In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)], FARMING AND CULTIVATION WILL YIELD MAXIMUM POSSIBLE CROPS. ONE GRAIN WILL YIELD 700 GRAINS. (Surat al-Baqara, verse 261 (The metaphor of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah is that of a grain which produces seven ears; in every ear there are a hundred grains. Allah gives such multiplied increase to whoever He wills. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.) ; Iqdud Durar, p.159; Al-Malaahem wa al-Fetan, Chapter 204, p. 97)

There will be Wealth

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will emerge from my community. Allah will send him to make people wealthy. The community will be blessed, animals will eat and drink in plenty, the ground will give forth its fruits, and goods will be given in excess. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 15)

Allah will eliminate poverty through his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] hand, and he will descend to Damascus. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 66)

He will fill the hearts of Muhammad's community with wealth, and his justice will be addressed to them. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 13)

The hearts of Muhammad's community will be filled with wealth. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20)

Goods will be Given Without Being Counted

In the End Times, a successor will distribute goods without even counting it. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, 15)

A leader [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will emerge from your leaders, and he will not count goods. When anyone asks him for a good, he will say: "Take." That person will spread out his robes, and he will fill them. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 15)

It will Rain in Abundance

He will fill Earth with justice and well-being. The earth gives forth its fruits, and the sky rains. My community will be blessed in a hitherto unseen way. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 35)

[In Hazrat Mahdi (as)'s time] the sky will begrudge none of its rain and will cause rain to fall generously. The earth will hold back none of its plants and will give them forth to perfection… (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 437)

During his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] time, both the community's good and wicked people will be blessed with a blessing, the like of which they have never seen before. Despite the abundance of rain, not a drop will go to waste. The land will grow fruitful and fertile, without demanding a single seed... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20-21)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Possess a Hitherto Unseen Conceptionof Justice

If there were only one day left for the world, that day would be lengthened until a man [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] from among my Ahl al-Bayt, will be sent; just as the earth is filled with cruelty, HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE. (Sunan Abu Dawud, 5/92)

The lord of believers (as) says: "... THE IMAM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL BETTER KNOW WHAT IS TRUE AND WHAT IS FALSE. HE WILL DO AWAY WITH FALSE LAWS. HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL PREVENT DANGERS AND NEUTRALIZE YOUR UNJUST RULERS AND WILL CLEANSE THE WORLD OF THOSE WHO ARE NOT HONEST. HE WILL ACT WITH EQUITY AND BUILD A MERCIFUL SCALE OF JUSTICE AMONG YOU... If you wait, you will be rewarded and YOU WILL REALIZE THAT HE IS DEFINITELY THE ONE WHO WILL SALVAGE YOUR RIGHTS and take revenge for the injustice inflicted upon you. I swear by the name of Allah, that Allah is with the truly devout and those who do good." (Kitab al Ghaybat, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Pubcations, collected by: Muhammad Baqr al-Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 182)

During the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), justice will prevail to such an extent that every possession taken by force will be returned to his owner. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

314 people, including women, will swear allegiance to Hazrat Mahdi (as), and all tyrants will be overthrown before him. HIS TIME WILL BE SO JUST THAT THE DEAD IN THE TOMB WILL ENVY THE LIVING... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 22)

People will be gathered around Hazrat Mahdi (as) as honey bees cluster around their sovereign. HE WILL FILL THE EARTH THAT WAS ONCE FULL OF CRUELTY WITH JUSTICE. HIS JUSTICE WILL BE AS SUCH THAT HE WILL NOT WAKE A SLEEPING PERSON OR EVEN SHED ONE DROP OF BLOOD. THE EARTH WILL RETURN TO THE AGE OF BLISS. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 29)

HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS)] JUSTICE WILL COVER ALL PLACES and he will rule among people with the Sunnah of the Prophet (saas). He will even also call for one who is in need to be brought forward, and when that command is obeyed only one person will come. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20)

Hear the glad tidings of Hazrat Mahdi (as). He is one from Quraysh and from my Ahl al-Bayt. He will appear at a time when people are in disputes and social upheaval.

(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 13)

... HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL POSSESS THE EARTH AND FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE, JUST AS IT HAS BEEN FILLED WITH OPPRESSION AND CORRUPTION. So whoever of you reaches him SHOULD COME AND JOIN HIM EVEN IF CRAWLING ON THE SNOW, since he is the Mahdi. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 14)

Once the Earth is full of cruelty and enmity, one [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] from my Ahl al-Bayt will emerge. HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE, JUST AS IT WAS PREVIOUSLY FILED WITH OPPRESSION AND ENMITY. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, p. 11)

After me...WILL COME ONE (THE MAHDI) FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT, AND HE WILL FILL THE WORLD WITH JUSTICE. (Ahmad Diya ad-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol. 2, p. 518, No. 4)

The Judgment Day will not take place until the world is filled with cruelty and enmity. THEN ONE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT AND MY LINE WILL COME AND FILL THE WORLD WITH JUSTICE AND HONESTY. (Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Ibn Hibban, Hakim)

"Even if only one day remains from the life of this world, Allah will certainly prolong that day until He sends a man from my Ahl al-Bayt [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] whose name is compatible with mine. He will fill the earth with justice and fairness that was previously filled with cruelty and oppression with truth and justice instead." (Sunan at-Tirmidhi; Sunan Abu Dawud; Nasai, al-Bayhaqi; Dala'il al-Nubuwwa; Abu Amr Ad-Dani)

There is no doubt that the Earth will be filled with injustice and oppression. When it is filled with oppression and cruelty, ALLAH WILL SEND ONE FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT WHOSE NAME IS MINE AND WHOSE FATHER'S NAME IS MY FATHER'S, AND HE WILL FILL THE WORLD WITH JUSTICE AND EQUITY in the same way that it was previously filled with injustice and sorrow. (Ahmad Diya ad-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol. 2, p. 346, No. 6)

"Even if only one day remains from the life of this world, ALLAH will certainly prolong that day until HE SENDS ONE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT WHOSE NAME IS COMPATIBLE WITH MY FATHER'S NAME TO FILL THE EARTH WITH TRUTH AND JUSTICE WHERE IT WAS PREVIOUSLY FILLED WITH OPPRESSION AND INJUSTICE. (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

It is narrated from Ali ibn Abi Talib that the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: "Even if nothing but a day were left to the world, ALLAH WOULD DEFINITELY SEND SOMEONE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT TO FILL IT WITH JUSTICE where it was previously filled with tyranny." (Sunan Abu Dawud)

Even if only one day were left to the world, Almighty Allah WOULD PROLONG THAT DAY IN ORDER TO SEND ONE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] FROM MY AHL AL-BAYT WHOSE NAME IS COMPATIBLE WITH MY FATHER'S NAME TO FILL THE EARTH WITH TRUTH AND JUSTICE where it was previously filled with oppression and injustice. (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

O Abbas, Allah began this matter with me. He will end it with one of your line. THAT YOUNG MAN (THE MAHDI) WILL AGAIN FILL THE WORLD WITH JUSTICE THAT WAS FORMERLY FILLED WITH TYRANNY... (Ammar Ibn Yathir, Great Portents of the Judgment Day, 498/1)

THE WORLD WITH BE FILLED WITH JUSTICE INSTEAD OF OPPRESSION AND TORTURE. HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL DISTRIBUTE ALL THINGS WITH EQUAL MEASURES OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE. Thus in the same way that the inhabitants of the earth and sky be pleased with him, so the birds in the air, savage animals in the forests and even fish in the sea will be delighted with him. (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 175)

From Abu Hamza of Somali: One day I sat beside Imam Muhammad Bakr. After those around him had dispersed, he turned to me and said: "O Abu Hamza! One of the laws that will never change is the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as)... HE WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE AND EQUALITY AFTER IT WAS FILLED WITH OPPRESSION AND CRUELTY... (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 90-91)

HE WILL ACT WITH EQUITY AND BUILD A MERCIFUL SCALE OF JUSTICE AMONG YOU...

Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari says: "AND IN THE SAME WAY THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH OPPRESSION, INJUSTICE AND EVIL, HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL FILL IT WITH JUSTICE, EQUALITY AND RADIANCE." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 278)

Ali ibn Omar, grandson of Imam Zayn al-Abidin, says: Imam Abu Abdullah Jaffar Sadik says: "THE QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)], WHO IS ONE OF MY CHILDREN...WILL FILL THE WORLD WITH JUSTICE AND EQUALITY THAT IS FILLED WITH OPPRESSION AND CRUELTY." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 217)

From Ishaq ibn Galib: Imam Jaffar Sadik said this in his sermon about the nature and qualities of Hazrat Mahdi (as): "HE WILL APPLY JUSTICE WITH HIS BROAD RADIANCE AND WIDE CURE, WITH A CLEAR, TRUE AND APPARENT DECLARATION." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 267)

From Ibn Abu Hamza: "HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] HAS BEEN GIFTED WITH THE QUALITIES OF JUSTICE, COMPASSION AND GOODNESS." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 287)

Hisham ibn Salih said: Imam Jaffar Sadik said:
"All classes of people will rule the people until the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). So that nobody will be able to say, 'If we ruled we would implement justice'. THEN THE QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL APPEAR WITH TRUTH AND JUSTICE." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 322)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL HOLD NOBODY SUPERIOR TO ANYBODY ELSE. (Al-Mahdi al-Maw'ud, vol. 1, pp. 264, 275, 277, 285, 287, 288, 311, 318, vol. 2, p. 11)

Fazl ibn Yessar states; I heard Imam Jaffar Sadik say: "I SWEAR TO ALLAH THAT IN THE SAME WAY HEAT AND COLD FILL THEIR HOMES, SO THE JUSTICE OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL FILL THEIR HOMES." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 351)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be from my Ahl al-Bayt and from my line. HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL FILL THE EARTH WITH JUSTICE. (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 438, (816))

In Hazrat Mahdi's (as) legal judgments and pronouncements, in Hazrat Mahdi's (as) government, NOT THE SLIGHTEST OPPRESSION OR INJUSTICE WILL BE INFLICTED ON ANYONE, AND NOBODY WILL BE WRONGED. (Al-Mahdi Al-Mawud, Vol. 1, pp. 280, 283, 284)

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri narrates that the Prophet (saas) said from the pulpit: "The promised HAZRAT MAHDI (as) from the Ahl Al-bayt WILL APPEAR IN THE END TIMES. THE SKY WILL POUR ITS RAIN ON HIM AND THE EARTH WILL SPROUT ITS PLANTS. After people have filled the world with oppression, he will fill it with justice." (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 74, Al-Hurr al-Amili, Ithbat al-Hudat, Vol. 7, p. 9)

The Courthouses and the Prisons Will Be Emptied in the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)

  1. Our Prophet (saas) reveals in the hadiths that immediately prior to the visible appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as) there will be an increase in crime levels and diversity of crime. They are each portents of the End Times.
  2. The hadiths describe how murders will rise, adultery will increase, there will be a rise in cases of suicide, bribery will be widespread and there will be increases in many similar offenses during the End Times.
  3. Since lovelessness and distrust are widespread, one of the important signs of the End Times, the slightest disagreement can give rise to serious disputes, as a result of which serious crimes may be perpetrated.
  4. As a result, prisons today are full to capacity. The courthouses are also overflowing on a daily basis.
  5. The judges, prosecutors and wardens who work in the courthouses and prisons ARE THEREFORE IMPRISONED IN A WAY BETWEEN FOUR WALLS IN NARROW, DARK CELLS. They have to work in these dismal places from morning till night. They have to make the most equitable decisions that may be affecting people's whole lives under these very difficult conditions.
  6. It is essential, in terms of the work these valuable people do, that they should be under no physical or psychological pressure. It is essential that they should be calm and free of stress if they are to make the most accurate decisions in line with good conscience. It is vitally important that these people be given the finest means available.

Bediuzzaman Has Reported That Hazrat Mahdi (as) Will Bring Justice and Veracity to the Entire World

... the Prophet's (saas) Family has raised hundreds of sacred heroes, and produced thousands of spiritual leaders of the community, and has been nurtured with the leaven of the reality of the Qur'an and the light of belief and honor of Islam, and has thus been perfected. It is therefore totally reasonable that through reviving the SUNNAH OF MUHAMMAD (SAAS) (THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD'S (SAAS) PATH) AND THE REALITY OF THE QUR'AN at the end of time, and proclaiming them and putting them into practice, THEY SHOULD DISPLAY TO THE WORLD THE PERFECT JUSTICE AND VERACITY OF THE GREAT MAHDI, THEIR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. This is also both necessary and essential and demanded by the principles of human society. (Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, Rays / The Fifth Ray - Second Station - p. 113)

When turmult reigns in the world, strife appears, roads are obstructed, people attack others, the elderly do not feel compassion for the young and fail to treat one another with dignity; Meanwhile Allah will eradicate enmity from them and conquer the fortresses of guidance and, just as how I did in the past, He will send someone who will uphold the religion in the End times and fill the earth which was formerly full of cruelty. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 12)

HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS) FOLLOWERS TAKE REFUGE (FIND PEACE AND SECURITY BESIDE HIM) IN HIM, JUST AS HOW HONEY BEES TAKE REFUGE IN QUEEN BEE; he will fill the earth with justice and honesty. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 11)

There will be Peace and Security

... Security will permeate all over earth and even a few ladies will be able to fulfill their pilgrimage without the company of men. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

He will fill the earth that was once full of cruelty with justice. His justice will be as such that HE WILL NOT WAKE A SLEEPING PERSON OR EVEN SHED ONE DROP OF BLOOD. The earth will return to the Age of Bliss. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 29)

People will swear allegiance to him between the Rock and the Pillar. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be so compassionate that in his time nobody will be awoken out of sleep and nobody's nose will bleed. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 42)

All Conflicts and Disagreements will End

The (competents of) battle will abandon its load (arms and equipment). (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/334)

Earth will be filled with peace, just as a bowl is filled with water. No enmity will remain between anyone. All enmity, conflict, and disagreement will surely vanish. (Sahih Muslim, 1/136)

(The competents of) War will abandon its load (namely, arms and the like). (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 496)

He will do away with enmity and hatred. The venom will be removed from poisonous animals. Even a small boy will place his hand in a serpent's mouth, and the serpent will not harm him. The wolf will be like a dog in a herd of sheep or goats. (Sunan Ibn Majah, p. 331-35)

In his time, the wolf will play with the sheep and snakes will not harm children. A person will sow a handful of seed and will receive back 700 handfuls of grain. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 43)

Love and Unity will Prevail

Just as Allah has freed them from the heresy of ascribing partners to Him through us and has placed friendship and love in their hearts and made them brothers in religion, so He will save them from the sin of corruption through Hazrat Mahdi (as) and will make them brothers to each other. (at-Tabarani, al-Haythami, Vol. VII, p. 317; Nu'aim ibn Hammad, 52b; Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 20)

Allah will give life to the Sunnah through one of my sons Muhammad ibn Abdullah [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. His justice and plenty will ease the hearts of believers. He will bring friendship and love to the Persian and Arab nations. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 66)

In the same way that through us they were freed from heresy and ascribing partners to Allah and placed friendship and love in their hearts, so it will be again (when Hazrat Mahdi (as) comes). (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 20)

Lives will be Longer

As reported in the hadith, one of the portents of the End Times and the appearance of the blessed Mahdi is "increased life expectancy" during this holy period. Some of the hadith and accounts regarding this are as follows:

Life expectancy will increase in his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] time. This increased life expectancy also means that he [Mahdi) will be long-lived. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 184)

In his time ... lives will be longer and things entrusted for safekeeping will not be lost... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 43)

Lives will be longer, and things entrusted will be returned to their place. (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 179)

There has been a relative increase in life expectancy in recent times, but none to match the increase observed in the 21st century. Research has revealed that human life expectancy will rise by 50% this century and that there will be many more people living to see their 100th birthdays in the years to come.

Uzun ömür, ömürler uzadı

The Sun will explode

 

Increases in life expectancy according to centuries

1800s: average life expectancy 24 years
1900s: average life expectancy 48 years
2000s: average life expectancy 63 years


The results of research into genetics and gene technology at the end of the 20th and early 21st centuries show that "life expectancies will be prolonged." For example, a report in National Geographic magazine stated that the formula needed for a longer and healthier life would soon be available in pharmacies. Scientists who say they have identified the gene for long life state that the average life may soon be around 100 years. Another study reports that children born around now will live to be approximately 125 or 150. Many researchers state that "there will be nothing out of the ordinary in people aged 150" and that in the 21st century life expectancies will increased beyond all comparison with the past.

İnsan ömrü

The Sun will explode

 

This information imparted by our Prophet (saas) 1400 years or so ago, coming about so clearly and manifestly without doubt represents a very valuable glad tiding for believers. Just like this prediction, the other reports imparted by our Prophet (saas) will also all come true, and mankind will witness many holy phenomena during the 21st century. By the will of Allah, the Prophet Jesus (as) will return to earth, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear, and by means of these holy personages the moral values of Islam will prevail across the entire world. This is something promised in the pages of the Qur'an. In verse 55 of Surat an-Nur, our Lord tells us:

Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. (Surat an-Nur, 55)

Is There A Limit to Human Life Expectancy?
Turkish daily Hurriyet, 18 March 2004

 

According to some scientists, children born today will be able live up the age of 150, and some are of the opinion that there is no limit to human life expectancy. Human life expectancy regularly increases by 2 years every decade. This means that in 2150 the average life expectancy will be 122.5, and people aged 150 will be regarded as quite normal. There are currently some 40,000 people aged over 100 in the USA, although the number was only around 2,300 in the 1950s. James Vaupel, from the Max Planck Demographic Research Institute in Rostock in Germany, suggests that the number of centenarians will double in developed countries every 10 years. (http://webarsiv.hurriyet.com.tr/2004/03/18/429832.aspTurkish magazine Tempo, 25 June 2004)

Human life expectancy has almost doubled since the end of the 19th century. It is estimated that human life expectancy will increase still further thanks to advances in genetic medicine. A study by the medical journal Anti-Aging asked 60 experts in the field to estimate the life expectancy of a child born in 2100. The majority of the experts responded "at least 100 year," while some said that life expectancy could reach 150 or even 200 years.

Is It Possible to Live Longer?
Turkish daily Radikal, 21 April 2002

… The 'Industrial revolution' in the late 19th century and scientific advances led to extraordinary progress in the field of medicine in the last century. This has prolonged human life expectancy by 50% … The frontiers of middle age have been put back from 40-50 to 60-70. As we enter the new millennium it has emerged that certain diseases are caused by defects in genes, themselves the secret of life. Biotechnological progress is now at the point of being able to rectify gene defects. (http://www.radikal.com.tr/haber.php?haberno=35461)

The Dead will Envy the Living

They will overcome all the oppressors and the cruel. There will be such justice in his time that the dead will envy the living. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 68)

His time will be one of such justice that the dead in the graves will envy the living… (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 22)

The living will wish that the deadwere alive (in order that they might see the blessings imparted to them). (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 437)

In describing how Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear and make Islamic moral values prevail, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi said he would witness this beautiful time from his grave and give thanks:

In the End Times, the true lords of this sphere of life, in other words the Mahdi and his followers, will, by the will of Allah, come and widen that sphere, and the seeds will sprout. We shall WATCH FROM THE GRAVE and give thanks to Allah. (Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, Kastamonu Addendum, p. 99)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Restore and Beautify the World

NOWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL REMAIN DEVASTATED, AND HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL REPAIR AND RESTORE ALL PLACES. (Al-Mahdi Al-Mawud, Vol. 1, p. 264)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) who will appear is from the line of Hazrat Ali (ra). HE WILL BEAUTIFY THE WORLD AS NEVER BEFORE... (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani p. 169)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) followers (friends) will set foot all over the world, will hold power in their hands everywhere, and everyone and everything will obey them, even SAVAGE ANIMALS IN THE DESERTS AND BIRDS OF PREY WILL ALL WISH TO GAIN THEIR APPROVAL AND GOOD PLEASURE. THESE MESSENGERS OF THE FAITH, MESSENGERS OF PEACE AND JUSTICE, WILL BRING SUCH JOY AND CONTENTMENT THAT the places where Hazrat Mahdi's (as) companions set foot will feel pride over everywhere else. (Sheikh al-Saduq, Kamal al-Din; Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 327)

All Wars, Oppression and Corruption will Come to An End in the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (As)

THE FLAME OF STRIFE AND CONFLICT WILL BE PUT OUT, OPPRESSION, NIGHT RAIDS AND THE HABIT OF PILLAGING WILL COME TO AN END, AND WARS WILL DISAPPEAR in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as). (Al-Mahdi Al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, p. 264)

Yes, ALMIGHTY ALLAH WILL SEND THE GREAT PURIFIER (HAZRAT MAHDI [AS]) WHEN STRIFE AND ENMITY ENFOLD THE WORLD, WHEN EVERYWHERE IS FILLED WITH OPPRESSION, RUINATION AND PILLAGING, TO TEAR DOWN THE BASTIONS OF DEPRAVITY AND DEVIATION (to intellectually neutralize the circles that deviate towards falsehood leaving the truth behind), TO UNIFY HEARTS OF STONE AND DARKNESS AND ENLIGHTEN THEM WITH HUMANITY AND THE LIGHT OF JUSTICE. (Al-Mahdi Al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, p. 310)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL FREE PEOPLE FROM A GREAT SCOURGE, FROM BLIND CORRUPTION THAT AFFLICTS EVERYONE. (Al-Mahdi Al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, p. 264)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Bring Forth the Treasures of the Earth

According to Hudhaifa, the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: ... In his time all water will become sweet, rivers will grow longer, the earth will increase its yields, and give its treasures out. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal, p. 43)

... Hazrat Mahdi (as) will extract treasures... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 33)

IN HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS)] TIME UNDERGROUND TREASURES, RICHES AND OTHER MINES WILL BE BROUGHT FORTH. (Al-Mahdi Al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, pp. 264, 275, 277, 285, 287, 288, 311, 318, Vol. 2, p. 11)

IN HIS TIME THE EARTH WILL CAST FORTH THE TREASURES WITHIN IT. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 43)

... THE EARTH WILL CAST FORTH ALL THE WEALTH IT HAS CONCEALED WITHIN IT IN THE FORM OF GOLD AND SILVER PILLARS. (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 464)

Hazrat Imam Bakr (as) states: "When our Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] appears, ALL THE EARTH'S MINERALS AND TREASURES WILL PASS INTO HIS HANDS." (Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 351)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Distribute Goods and Blessings in A Just Manner; the Whole World will be Filled with Plenty and Abundance

Our Prophet (saas) says: Abu Sa'id relates: HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL BE SUCH A GENEROUS PERSON THAT HE WILL GRANT THOSE WHO BEG, "BESTOW ME THIS, BESTOW ME THAT" AS MUCH AS THEY CAN CARRY WITH THEIR GARMENTS. (Tirmidhi, (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 171)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will emerge from my community. ALMIGHTY ALLAH WILL SEND HIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] TO ENRICH PEOPLE. My community will be blessed in that time, animals will live in plenty and the earth will give forth many goods, HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL JUSTLY DISTRIBUTE MANY, MANY GOODS AMONG PEOPLE. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

WHEN HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) COMES HE WILL DISTRIBUTE MANY GOODS… (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 15)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL APPEAR from among my community, ALLAH WILL SEND HIM TO ENRICH PEOPLE. The community will be blessed, animals will eat and drink in plenty, the earth will give forth many fruits, AND GOODS WILL BE GIVEN OUT EQUALLY (within the frame of social justice). (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 15)

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] will come at a time when corruption appears AND HIS BENEFICIENCE WILL BE COMPLIMENTARY. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

THE HEARTS OF THE COMMUNITY OF MUHAMMAD WILL BE FILLED WITH WEALTH. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20)

The people of the earth and skies will be pleased with him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. AND HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL SHARE OUT THE GOOD…AND HE WILL FILL THE HEARTS OF THE COMMUNITY OF MUHAMMAD (SAAS) WITH WEALTH AND HIS JUSTICE WILL COMPLETELY ENFOLD THEM. (Ahmad Diya ad-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol. 1, p. 7, No. 77; Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 13)

Abd al-Khayr: I heard the commander of the faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib say: "The Messenger of Allah (saas) said to me:… [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] will appear when the earth is filled with cruelty and oppression and will fill it with justice and equality. MOST OF THE TIME ONE WILL COME NEAR HIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] AND THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF GOODS WITH HIM AND THAT PERSON WILL SAY: O MAHDI! BESTOW ME THIS GOOD. HE WILL SAY: I WILL GIVE YOU BLESSING AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, pp. 97-98)

Imam Hussein relates: "Ask after one another's health and provide for one another benevolently. I swear to Allah Who splits the seed and greens it, and creates living beings, that SUCH A TIME WILL COME UPON WHEN NO ONE WILL FIND ANY PLACE TO SPEND A DINAR OR A DIRHAM." (That is to say, upon Hazrat Mahdi's (as) appearance, due to Allah's and His saint's [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] abundant blessings, no one will find any place to spend his money.) (Iqdud Durar, p. 236)

At the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) ... EVERYONE WILL FREELY TAKE WHAT THEY WANT FROM OTHERS' POCKET. (Sheikh al-Mufid, Al-Ikhtisas, p. 24)

In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), BELIEVERS WILL MAKE NO PROFIT IN THEIR DEALINGS WITH ONE ANOTHER. (Shaykh Hurr al-Amili, Wasail-ush-Shia, Trade chapters)

During his [Hazrat Mahdi's (as)] time, both the community's good and wicked people WILL BE BLESSED WITH A BLESSING, THE LIKE OF WHICH THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Despite the abundance of rain, not a drop will go to waste. The land will grow fruitful and fertile, without demanding a single seed... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 20-21)

Islam is the Religion of Peace and Love: the Time of the Coming of the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be One of Peace and Security

Verses from the Qur'an referring to Islam as the religion of peace, love and brotherhood:

You who believe! Enter peace (Islam) totally. Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you. (Surat al-Baqara, 208)

Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and He guides whom He wills to a straight path.... (Surah Yunus, 25)

... if someone kills another person—unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth—it is as if he had murdered all mankind. ... (Surat al-Maida, 32)

The believers are brothers, so make peace between your brothers and fear Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (Surat al-Hujurat, 10)

Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Surat al-Anfal, 46)

As for those who believe and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them. (Surah Maryam, 96)

You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind. You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and believe in Allah... (Surah Al 'Imran, 110)

Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant. (Surat al-A'raf, 199)

Hadith Regarding the Prophet Jesus (as) Bringing Peace and Love to the World and Putting an End to Killing, Oppression and War:

I swear that Jesus (as), son of Mary will descend as a just ruler... And all HOSTILITIES, QUARRELS, ENVY WILL ABSOLUTELY VANISH... (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 498)

Jesus (as), son of Mary will be a just judge and a just ruler, ... abolish the jizya (from the non-Muslims), FILL THE EARTH WITH PEACE just as the water fills the pot. There will also be unity in religion and noone other than Allah will be worshipped anymore. (Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/334)

The Prophet Jesus (as) exists in my community as a just ruler... ALL HOSTILITY AND HATRED VANISH... Earth becomes like a silver plate and grows the plants in abundance just like in the time of the Prophet Adam (as) ... (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 496)

EARTH WILL BE FILLED WITH PEACE just like water fills the pot. NO HOSTILITY WILL REMAIN AND ALL HOSTILITIES, QUARRELS, ENVY WILL ABSOLUTELY VANISH. (Sahih Muslim, 1/136)

Then he will live for 40 years. No one will die at his time. A person will tell his sheep and animals to go and graze, they will go and although they will pass through crops, they will take not a single ear of grain into their mouths. Snakes and scorpions will not harm anyone. Beasts will stand before the doors and will not harm anyone... (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p 184)

ENMITY AND GRUDGE among people will disappear. Scorpions and snakes will be without poison; even a child will play with a snake with bare hands without getting a snakebite. A girl will try to drive a lion but that lion will not touch her. A wolf will remain among sheep as if it were a shepherd dog. As a bowl fills with water, the earth will fill with the unity of religion. People will worship no being other than Allah. NOTHING IN THE NAME OF WARS, STRIFE WILL REMAIN... The earth will be like a silver table. It will give off its plantations as it were in the time of Prophet Adam (as). A bunch of grapes will suffice a private. A group of people will be full with a single pomegranate. The price of an ox will be that much and a horse will be purchased in return for a dirham.
They said:
"The Messenger of Allah! Why will a horse be so cheap?"
"BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO WAR, PEOPLE WILL NOT NEED IT MUCH!"
"Why will an ox will be so expensive?"
"Because the entire earth will be planted, it will be of great demand..." (Ibn Majah reported a similar one from Umama; Great Hadith Collection, al-Rudani, Vol. 5, p. 370-371-372)

Jesus (as) remains among the people as a just judge, an absolute judicious imam (religious leader) – ruler... ALL ENMITIES, GRUDGE DISAPPEAR, the poison of each poisonous animal is drawn. Furthermore, a child puts his hand in the mouth of a snake but that snake does not give harm to it. A girl annoys a lion while caressing it but that lion does not give harm to the girl. A wolf becomes like a shepherd dog among a sheep herd. THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH PEACE AND SECURITY AS IF A BOWL IS FILLED WITH WATER. (At that time) a single word (the word of tawhid) remains and people worship only Allah. Warriors LEAVE THEIR LOAD (THAT IS THEIR ARMS, WEAPONS ETC.) (Al-Sharani, Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, pp. 496-497)

[Jesus (as)] will then live for forty years. AT HIS TIME NO ONE WILL DIE. A person will tell his sheep and animals to go and graze, they will go and although they will pass through crops, they will take not a single ear of grain into their mouths. Snakes and scorpions will not give harm to anyone. Predatory animals will lie at people's doorsteps but they will not give harm to anyone. A person will take a scale of wheat and plant it [in a field] without ox and catapult, but he will still take seven hundred scales of wheat in return. (Jalaluddin as-Suyuti, Kıyamet alametleri, Olum ve Dirilis [Portents of the Judgment Day, Death and Resurrection], p. 184)

"For seven years NO ONE WILL BE ENEMIES TO ONE ANOTHER." (264- Ibn Manda, a.e II 958-9, al-Mukhaddas, a.E. Vr. 136-a 137-b)

In his [Jesus' (as)] time, earth brings out its treasures in its depths. People do not demand any possessions. Envy and grudge disappear. Allah clears off the poison of each poisonous being. Thus children play with snakes and scorpions, but they are not harmed. Wolves do not give harm to sheep. PEOPLE DO NOT KILL ONE ANOTHER. PEACE DOMINATES THE EARTH. Soil gives plenty of crops as it were in its initial days. (265- see Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Musnad, II, 409, 437; al-Safarini, Lavami, II 95) (Dr. Zeki Saritoprak, Jesus' Descend from the Point of Islam, Cağlayan Press, Izmir, 1997, p. 96)

THERE WILL BE NO PLACE FOR GRUDGE AND ENMITY AMONG PEOPLE since the causes disappear... (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, pp. 242-243)

"Jesus (as), son of Mary, will descend no matter what."... "ENMITY, GETTING CROSS WITH EACH OTHER AND JEALOUSY WILL BE REMOVED." (Abu Huraira, Great Hadith Collection, al-Rudani, Vol. 5, p. 379)

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) the Blind will Get Vision, The Sick will be Cured, Longevity will Prevail

THE BLIND WILL GET VISION and THE SICK WILL BE CURED in the time of Imam az-Zamaan [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 51, p. 70)

In that time [In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] LONGEVITY WILL WILL PREVAIL. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 330), narrating from Al-Ghaibah by Shaykh Toosi (ar); Iqdud Durar)

During that era [in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] ALLAH, THE ALMIGHTY WILL DISPELL ALL ILLNESSES FROM THE MUSLIMS. THEY WILL REGAIN THEIR POWER AND STRENGTH. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 335 and 364; Mikyaal al-Makaarem, vol. 1, p. 247)

These hadiths indicate that as a result of the extraordinary progress in medical science and drugs in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), by the will of Allah, the blind will be cured and their eyes will get vision, most of the diseases will be treated, and people's life spans will thus be prolonged.

Such Goodness and Beauty will be Created in the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) That Even Those Who Feel Themselves to be Spiritually Dead will be Filled with A Zest for Life

Abu Sa'id relates that the Prophet (saas) said: ... And Allah will later send one from my Ahl al-Bayt to fill the earth that is filled with oppression with justice. The dwellers on earth and the heavens will be pleased with him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. The earth will cause all its plants to flourish for them and the sky will constantly cause rain to fall down on them... BECAUSE OF ALL THE BOUNTY THAT ALMIGHTY ALLAH SENDS DOWN TO THE EARTH, THE DEAD WILL WISH TO LIVE AGAIN. (Al-Bayan, p. 72, Al-Sawaiq Al-Muhariqa, p. 161, Yanabi Al-Mawadda, Vol. 2, p. 177)

The hadiths and accounts that have come down from our Prophet (saas) describe people attaining the highest possible level of spiritual and physical well-being in the period following the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as), and how they will live in a hitherto unseen security and happiness. So much so that because of the beauty of this climate and way of life, even those who feel themselves to be spiritually dead, and people who say, "I am already dead" or who are described as "already having died" by other people, will be filled with a renewed zest for life. The hadith therefore indicates that through the incomparably excellent life to be enjoyed in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), such people will be restored to life and will find religious strength.

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Ensure Equality Among Countries

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will distribute goods EQUALLY AMONG PEOPLE and will do away with all class differences. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, pp. 78 and 88)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will balance the levels of prosperity among countries. Goods will be distributed on a common basis. The gulf between rich and poor will finally be eliminated in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be instrumental in the moral values of Islam ruling the world and will bring a spirit of equality and brotherhood to the whole world.

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) Hearts will be Free of Griefand Sorrow

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] HEARTS WILL BE FREE OF GRIEF AND SORROW. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 129; vol. 102, p.102; Mikyaal al-Makaarem, vol. 1, p. 116 & 142; Misbaah al-Zaaer, p. 217-219)

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) People's Hearts will be Filled with the Desire of Mutual Love and Unity, Love and Kindness will Pervade All the Nooks and Corners of the Earth

Due to the blessings of Imam az-Zaman [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] PEOPLE'S HEARTS WILL BE FILLED WITH MUTUAL LOVE AND UNITY. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 53, p. 187; Mikyaal al-Makaarem, vol. 1, p. 52)

[In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] LOVE AND KINDNESS WILL PERVADE ALL THE NOOKS AND CORNERS OF THE EARTH. (Iqbaal al-A'maal, p. 507; Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 21, p. 312)

In the Time of Hazrat Mahdi (As), People's Eyes will Shine with Joy

Al-Khani says: "I asked Al-Imam Abu Jaffar Muhammad ibn Ali al-Bakr and he said, 'O Ummu Al-Khani! He will appear like light after a dark night. IF YOU LIVE AT THAT TIME [THE TIME OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)], YOUR EYES WILL SHINE WITH JOY'." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 171)

… From Ibrahim Al-Karkhi: ... Imam Jaffar Sadik told me: ... O Ibrahim! After fierce troubles and scourges and fear and famine, he will do away with the sorrow in people's hearts. HOW FORTUNATE THOSE WHO LIVE IN HIS [(HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] TIME WILL BE!... Ibrahim Al-Karkhi says: I had never before heard words that brought me such joy and tears to my eyes. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 95-96)
