"What will happen at the time of the Reappearance of Imam Al Zaman (a.s.) according to the report of Mufaddal ibn Umar" -Bihar Al Anwar Volume 53 by Allame Majlisi, -Mukhtasar Basair Al Darajat by Al Hasan bin Sulayman Al Hilli -Hidayat Al Kubra by Al Husayn ibn Hamdan Narrated by Husain bin Hamdan from Muhammad bin Ismail and Ali bin Abdullah Hasani from Abi Shuaib from Muhammad bin Nusayr from Umar bin Furat from Mufaddal bin Umar that he said: Mufaddal ibn Umar said: Once I asked my master, Imam Ja’far Al Sadiq (a.s.): “Is any time fixed for the reappearance of the awaited Mahdi (a.s.) that can be declared?” He said: “By Allah, there is no such fixed time that can be told to our Shia.” “Why is it so, my master?” I asked. He replied: “It is the same Hour regarding which the Almighty Allah says:
َُ ‫يس‬ ّ ‫ج‬ َ َ ‫ألون‬ ‫و‬ ْ ِ ‫ما‬ ِ ‫ها‬ َ ‫سا‬ ِ َ ‫ساع‬ َ ُ ‫بي َ ل ي‬ ّ‫ر‬ ّ ‫ة َأ‬ َ ‫ر‬ ّ ‫ك عَ ِ ن ال‬ ْ َ ُ ‫عل‬ َ ّ ‫ها ُق ْ ل ِإن‬ ُ ‫يا َ ن‬ َ ِ ‫وقت‬ َ ‫لي‬ َ ‫م‬ َ ُ‫ها ِإل ّ ه‬ َْ ِ ‫ها ل‬ َ َ ‫عند‬ ْ ‫م‬ َ َ‫ر ِ ض‬ َُ ‫ث‬ ِ ‫وا‬ ِ ‫ت‬ ّ ‫في ال‬ َ ‫س‬ ْ ‫قل‬ ْ ‫وال‬ َ ‫ت‬ َ ‫ما‬

“They ask you about the hour, when will be its taking place? Say: The knowledge of it is only with my Lord; none but He shall manifest it at its time; it will be momentous in the heavens and the earth…” (Surah Araaf 7:187) He said: “And it is the same Hour regarding which the Almighty Allah has said:

ُ ‫س‬ َ َ ‫ألون‬ ‫ها‬ َْ َ ‫ي‬ َ ‫سا‬ ِ َ ‫ساع‬ ّ ‫ة َأ‬ َ ‫ر‬ ّ ‫ك عَ ِ ن ال‬ ُ ‫يا َ ن‬ ْ ‫م‬

“They ask you about the hour, when it will come.” (Surah Naziyat 79:42)
ِ ُ‫عند َه‬ ِ ِ‫ساع َة‬ ّ ‫م ال‬ ُ ْ ‫عل‬

“…with Whom is the knowledge of the hour.” (Surah Luqman 31:34)
ّ ‫م‬ ‫ة‬ ِ َ ‫ساع‬ ّ ‫لل‬ ٌ ْ ‫ه َلعِل‬ ُ ّ ‫وإن‬ َِ

“And most surely it is a knowledge of the hour…” (Surah Zukhruf 43:61) That is, He did not say that anyone had any knowledge of it. He also said:
ّ ‫رو َ ن ِإ‬ ًَ ْ‫هم ب َغ‬ َ ‫سا‬ َ َ ‫تة‬ َْ ‫عة َأن‬ ْ َ‫فه‬ ْ ‫جاء َأ‬ َ‫ها‬ َ ْ ‫فقد‬ َ ‫ل‬ ّ ‫ل ال‬ َ ‫را ُ ط‬ ُ َ ‫تأت ِي‬ َ ‫ش‬ ُ ‫ين ُ ظ‬

“Do they then wait for aught but the hour that it should come to them all of a sudden? Now indeed the tokens of it have (already) come…” (Surah Muhammad 47:18) Then He said:
َْ ‫شق ا‬ ‫ر‬ ُ َ ‫ساع‬ ِ َ ‫رب‬ ّ ‫ت ال‬ َ ‫لق‬ ّ َ ‫وان‬ ُ ‫م‬ َ ‫ة‬ َ َ ‫ا ِقْت‬

“The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder.” (Surah Qamar 54:1) Then He said:
ُ َ ‫عة ت‬ َ ‫ري‬ ّ َ‫ك َلع‬ ‫با‬ َ ‫سا‬ ً ‫كو ُ ن َق ِ ري‬ ّ ‫ل ال‬ َ َ‫و‬ ِ ْ ‫ما ي ُد‬

“…and what will make you comprehend that the hour may be nigh.” (Surah Ahzab 33:63) And before that it is mentioned:
َ ‫ري‬ َ ‫سا‬ ّ َ‫ك َلع‬ ‫ب‬ ٌ ‫ري‬ ّ ‫ل ال‬ َ َ‫و‬ ِ َ‫عة ق‬ ِ ْ ‫ما ي ُد‬

“…and what shall make you know that haply the hour be nigh?” (Surah Shura 42:17)

َ َ ‫فقو َ ن منها ويعل َمو َ ن َأنها ال ْحق‬ ُ ‫عِج‬ ْ ‫م‬ ‫أل‬ ُِ ‫ش‬ ُ ‫م‬ ِ ّ ‫وال‬ ُ ‫م‬ ِ ْ ‫ن َل ي ُؤ‬ ِ ّ ‫ها ال‬ ْ َ ‫ست‬ ْ َ‫ي‬ ّ َ ُ ََْ َْ ِ ُ ‫نوا‬ َ ‫نآ‬ َّ َ ‫نو َ ن ِب‬ َ ‫ل ِب‬ َ ‫ذي‬ َ ‫ها‬ َ ‫ذي‬ َ ‫ض‬ ٍِ‫عيد‬ ِ َ‫ل ٍ ل ب‬ ِ ‫ة َل‬ ِ َ ‫ساع‬ ِ ‫رو َ ن‬ ِ ّ ‫ن ال‬ َ ‫في‬ ّ ‫إ‬ ّ ‫في ال‬ َ ُ‫ن ي‬ ُ ‫ما‬ َ ‫ذي‬

“Those who do not believe in it would hasten it on, and those who believe are in fear from it, and they know that it is the truth. Now most surely those who dispute obstinately concerning the hour are in a great error.” (Surah Shura 42:18) Mufaddal says: I asked: What is the meaning of “those who dispute”?

Imam (a.s.) replied: “They say: when was he born? Who has seen him? Where does he reside? and When will he reappear? And all these things imply making haste in the command of Allah, doubting in the divine decree and interfering in the power of Allah. These are the one who will suffer loss in the world and indeed the disbelievers have an evil abode.” I asked: “So no time is fixed for his reappearance?” He replied: O Mufaddal, I don’t fix any time from his reappearance and neither is any time fixed for it. And one who fixes a time for our Mahdi, considers himself to be a partner of Allah in His knowledge and he claims to dominate the secrets of the Almighty Allah and also no divine secret has been disclosed to the common people. Those who have deviated from the right path and are ignorant of the divine saints. Only these are having and the news of Allah and it is safe with them and the Almighty Allah inspires it to them so that the proof is completed for them. Mufaddal says: I asked: My master, how will the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) occur and how he would be accepted by the people? He replied: “O Mufaddal, initially people will be in doubt, then gradually his remembrance will be exalted. His name, Kunniyat and lineage will be announced from the heavens and this will be talked about extensively by all: the good and the evil and the supporters and opponents; so that it may serve as the decisive proof for them. And we have mentioned his conditions, signs, name and lineage, and declared that the great grandfather of the Mahdi, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) had named him and mentioned his

Kunniyat, so that no one can say that he was unaware of his name, Kunniyat and lineage. By Allah, his name, Kunniyat and lineage will be talked of by all and each will mention it to others. And that will be the great decisive proof on them. After that the Almighty Allah will make him appear according to the promise of his grandfather, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.). Thus the Almighty Allah Himself says:
ِْ ُ ‫ق ل ِي‬ ْ ‫ه ِب‬ َ ُ ‫ره‬ ِ ّ ‫دي ِ ن ك ُل‬ ِ َ‫دى و‬ ِ ّ ‫و ال‬ ّ ‫على ال‬ َ ْ ‫دي ِ ن ال‬ َ ُ‫اله‬ ُ ‫ر‬ َ ‫و َ ك ِ ره‬ ّ ‫ح‬ ُ ‫ول‬ َ ‫ر‬ ْ ‫ول‬ َ ‫ه‬ َ ‫ظه‬ َ ‫س‬ َ ‫سَل‬ ْ ‫ذي َأ‬ َ ُ‫ه‬ ْ ‫م‬ ‫ر ُ كو َ ن‬ ُ ْ ‫ال‬ ِ ‫ش‬

“He it is Who sent His Apostle with guidance and the religion of truth, that He might cause it to prevail over all religions, though the polytheists may be averse.” (Surah Taubah 9:33) Mufaddal says: I asked: My master what is the meaning of the verse: “that He might cause it to prevail over all religions, though the polytheists may be averse?” Please explain it to me. Imam (a.s.) said: Its interpretation is present in the following statement of the Almighty Allah:
ّ ‫ه‬ ‫لله‬ ٌ َ ‫ت ُ كو َ ن فِت ْن‬ ُِ ‫وقا‬ ّ ‫ح‬ ّ ‫ي ُ كو َ ن ال‬ َ ‫م‬ ُ ّ ‫ن ُ كل‬ َ ‫تى َ ل‬ ْ ُ‫تلوه‬ ُ ‫دي‬ َ َ‫ة و‬ َ

“And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah…” (Surah Anfal 8:39) By Allah, at that time all the differences of sects and religions will be gone and all will have the same faith, as the Almighty Allah says: The Promised Mahdi 292
ّ ‫عند َ ا‬ ِ‫م‬ ِ ‫ن‬ ِ ‫لل‬ ّ ‫ن ال‬ ّ ‫إ‬ ُ ‫سَل‬ ْ ِ ‫ه ال‬ َ ‫دي‬

“Surely the (true) religion with Allah is Islam…” (Surah Aale Imran 3:19) Also He says:
َ َ ‫نا‬ ‫ن‬ ْ ُ ‫فلن ي‬ َ ْ ‫ن ال‬ ِ ‫في ال‬ ِ ‫خا‬ ِ ِ‫رة‬ ِ ‫و‬ ِ ‫بَل‬ ً ‫دي‬ ِ ‫لم‬ ِ َ‫س‬ َ ‫ق‬ ُ ْ ‫من‬ َ ْ ‫من ي َب‬ َ َ‫و‬ ْ ِ ‫ر ال‬ َ ‫ري‬ َ ‫م‬ َ ‫خ‬ َ ُ‫ه وَه‬ َ ْ ‫ت ِ غ َ غي‬ ِ ‫س‬

“And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be

was the religion of your forefathers. and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers. Mufaddal says: I asked: My master.” (Surah Yunus 10:90) Also it is mentioned in the story of Prophet Sulaiman and Bilquis as follows: َ‫ن‬ ِ ِ ‫سل‬ َْ ‫ب َ ل َأن‬ ْ ‫ق‬ ْ ‫م‬ ُ ‫وني‬ َ ‫مي‬ ِ ُ ‫يأت‬ “…before they come to me in submission?” (Surah Naml 27:38) And the statement of Bilquis that: َ َ‫ب ال ْع‬ ‫ن‬ ِ ‫ال‬ ِ ّ ‫ما َ ن ل ِل‬ َ ّ ‫ر‬ ُ َ‫مع‬ َْ ‫وأ‬ َ ْ ‫سل َي‬ َ ‫ت‬ ُ ‫م‬ ْ ‫سل‬ َ ‫مي‬ َ ‫ه‬ “…and I submit with Sulaiman to Allah. O Mufaddal. the Lord of the worlds.” (Surah Aale Imran 3:85) Mufaddal says: I asked: My master. Ibrahim. he said: I believe that there is no god but He in Whom the children of Israel believe and I am of those who submit. He named you Muslims…” (Surah Hajj 22:78) Also with regard to Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail it was said: َ ُ ‫نا أ‬ َ ّ ‫مة ل‬ َ ‫ي ِ ن َل‬ ًَ ِ ‫سل‬ ‫ك‬ ِ َ‫ك و‬ َ ‫عل‬ َ ّ ‫رب‬ َْ ‫ج‬ ْ ‫وا‬ ْ ‫م‬ ْ ‫م‬ ّ ‫مة‬ ّ َ ِ ‫ري ّت‬ َ ِ ‫سل‬ ُ ‫نا‬ ّ ‫من ُ ذ‬ ْ ‫م‬ َ ‫نا‬ َ “Our Lord! and make us both submissive to Thee and (raise) from our offspring a nation submitting to Thee…” (Surah Baqarah 2:128) And in the story of Firon it is said: َ ُ‫رق‬ ‫ن‬ ِ ‫را‬ ِ ْ ‫وأن َا‬ ُ َ‫ه ب‬ ِ ‫ت ِب‬ ِ ّ ‫ه ِإل ّ ال‬ ّ‫ح‬ َ ْ ‫نو ِإ‬ ْ َ ‫من‬ َ ‫ذي آ‬ َ ِ ‫ه ل ِإل‬ ُ ّ ‫ت َأن‬ ُ ‫من‬ َ ‫قا َ ل آ‬ ُ ‫رَك‬ َ ‫م‬ َ ‫ئي َ ل‬ َ ‫س‬ َ َ‫ه ال ْغ‬ َ ْ ‫تى ِإ َ ذا َأد‬ ‫ن‬ ِ ِ ‫سل‬ ْ ‫م‬ ُ ْ ‫ال‬ َ ‫مي‬ “…until when drowning overtook him. Nuh. Musa and Muhammad Islam? He replied: Yes. First of all is the verse: ّ ‫عند َ ا‬ ِ‫م‬ ِ ‫ن‬ ِ ‫لل‬ ّ ‫ن ال‬ ّ ‫إ‬ ُ ‫سَل‬ ْ ِ ‫ه ال‬ َ ‫دي‬ “Surely the (true) religion with Allah is Islam…” (Surah Aale Imran 3:19) Then the Almighty Allah says: ْ ‫م‬ ‫ن‬ ِ ‫س‬ َِ‫ة‬ َ ّ ‫مل‬ ِ ‫را‬ ْ ‫م‬ َ ‫و‬ ُ ‫ال‬ ُ ‫ما ُ ك‬ ّ ‫س‬ َ ‫هي‬ ْ ‫أبي ُ ك‬ ّ َ ‫لمي‬ َ ُ‫م ه‬ َ ْ ‫م ِإب‬ “…the faith of your father Ibrahim. it is mentioned in the Holy Quran. from the beginning to the end. is there any mention of it in the Holy Quran? He replied: Yes.” . it was Islam and nothing else.accepted from him.

” (Surah Zariyat 51:36) And the statement of the Almighty Allah: َ ِ ‫ما ُأن ِ ز َ ل‬ َ ِ ‫مآ ُأن ِ ز َ ل‬ ّ ‫نا ِبا‬ ُ‫ب‬ ِ ‫ما‬ ِ ‫را‬ َ ْ ‫إلي‬ ِ ‫لل‬ ّ ‫م‬ َ ‫عقو‬ ُْ َ ‫ق وَي‬ َ ‫س‬ ْ ‫وإ‬ ْ ‫وإ‬ َ ‫ح‬ َ ‫س‬ َ ‫هي‬ َ َ‫نا و‬ َ َ‫ه و‬ َ ‫وا آ‬ َ ْ ‫إلى ِإب‬ ْ ‫ول‬ ُ ‫ق‬ َِ ‫عي َ ل‬ َِ ‫م‬ َّ ‫عيسى وما ُأوت ِي ال‬ َُ ‫م َ ل‬ ُ ‫ر‬ ٍ ‫حد‬ ِ ‫يو َ ن‬ ِ ‫با‬ َ ‫ن َأ‬ ّ ‫نب‬ َ ‫س‬ َ ِ َ‫سى و‬ َ ‫مو‬ ْ ‫وال‬ ْ ِ‫رب ّه‬ َ َ ُ ‫ي‬ َ َ‫ط و‬ َ ْ ‫ق ب َي‬ ّ ‫نف‬ ّ ‫من‬ َ َ ِ ‫ما ُأوت‬ َ ‫مو َ ن‬ ْ َ ‫م وَن‬ ْ ‫م‬ ُ ِ ‫سل‬ ُ ‫ه‬ ُ ‫ن َل‬ ْ ُ‫من ْه‬ ّ ُ ‫ح‬ “Say: We believe in Allah and (in) that which had been revealed to us. and (in) that which was given to the prophets from their Lord.s.” (Surah Baqarah 2:136) Mufaddal says: I asked: My master. willingly or unwillingly…” (Surah Aale Imran 3:83) And it is mentioned in the story of Prophet Lut (a.s. because they attribute falsehood on Prophet Adam (a.) that: َ‫ن‬ ِ ِ ‫سل‬ ٍ ْ ‫ر ب َي‬ ِ ‫نا‬ َ ْ ‫جد‬ َ َ‫ما و‬ ْ ‫م‬ ُ ْ ‫ن ال‬ ّ ‫ت‬ َ ‫ف‬ َ ‫في‬ َ ‫مي‬ َ ‫م‬ َ ْ ‫ها َ غي‬ “But We did not find therein save a (single) house of those who submitted (the Muslims).) has said: ّ ‫نا ِبا‬ ّ ‫را‬ ّ ‫إلى ا‬ َ ِ ‫صا ِ ري‬ َ ‫ه‬ ْ ‫وا‬ ‫مو َ ن‬ ّ ‫بأ‬ ِ ‫لل‬ ّ ‫م‬ ِ ‫لل‬ ِ ‫لل‬ َ ِ ْ ‫شهَد‬ ْ َ ‫يو َ ن ن‬ ّ ِ‫وار‬ َ ْ ‫قا َ ل ال‬ ْ ‫م‬ ُ ِ ‫سل‬ ُ ‫نا‬ َ ‫هآ‬ َ َ ‫ن َأن‬ َ ‫ن َأن‬ َ ‫ه‬ ُ ‫صا‬ ُ ‫ح‬ َ ‫ح‬ ْ ‫م‬ “Who will be my helpers in Allah’s way?

He replied: They are called as Majus in Syriac. we do not make any distinction between any of them.(Surah Naml 27:44) And Prophet Isa (a. and to Him do we submit. and (in) that which was given to Musa and Isa. and (in) that which was revealed to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqub and the tribes.) and Prophet Sheeth (a.s.

please tell me from where will Imam Mahdi (a.s. convey this to my Shia so that they may not harbor any doubt in religion. how vast is the knowledge! Imam (a. No time is fixed for prayers.) said: O Mufaddal. Mufaddal says: I asked: My master. Prophet Adam and Sheeth (a.).) is quoted in the Holy Quran: ّ ‫را‬ ّ ‫إلى ا‬ َ ِ ‫صا ِ ري‬ َ ِ‫لله‬ ِ‫لله‬ ْ َ ‫يو َ ن ن‬ ّ ِ‫وار‬ َ ْ ‫قا َ ل ال‬ َ َ ‫ن َأن‬ َ ‫ن َأن‬ ُ ‫صا‬ ُ ‫ح‬ َ ‫ح‬ ْ ‫م‬ “Who will be my helpers in Allah’s way?

He (a.) called Yahud? He replied: Because the Almighty Allah has quoted them in the Holy Quran: َ ِ ‫نا‬ َ ْ ‫إلي‬ ِ‫ك‬ َ ْ ‫نا هُد‬ ّ‫إ‬ “…for surely we turn to Thee. even though it is a falsehood attributed to the Almighty Allah. prophethood of the prophet and the successorship of the successors and neither they have any book nor prophet.

So much so.H. he will be seen for two years and nine months. he should be considered a liar. would no one see him even at the time of his birth? He replied: Yes. but it would in fact be Saman Raa. the date of the demise of his respected father. But he will not be Mutawakkil.H. The doubter will not be able to see him and till that time his commands and prohibitions will be in force. That town is named Surre man Raa. he will disappear in such a way that no one will be able to see him. which would have been established by an arrogant tyrant named Ja’far and having the title of Mutawakkil. Mufaddal said: My master. 260 A. only the true believers will be able to see him.H. a day will come when all would be able to see him..every eye will see him and if anyone else says to the contrary. Mufaddal said: My master. with whom will he interact during this period? . After that he will go into occultation and then he will reappear in Qasr Sabar in the sanctuary of his respected grandfather. 8th Rabiul Awwal. that is Medina and there only those will able to meet him whom the Almighty Allah bestows the fortune. And he will pass away in town at the banks of Tigris River. Till 260 A. from the time of his birth till the passing away of his respected father. till Friday. Then on the last day of 266 A. That is from the time of his birth. that is one who sees it would be aggrieved. on the contrary he would be Mutakkil. that is one who sees it will be pleased.H. Friday dawn on 9th Shaban 257 A.

He replied: “O Mufaddal.) said: “Angels and believers from the Jinns and his trustees will convey his commands and prohibitions to his governors and representatives. Some weak goats will be ahead of him and he will be herding them.w. Mufaddal said: My master. After that he will appear in Mecca. having stitches. His Eminence. . that he has entered Mecca with the robe of the Messenger of Allah (s.

He will be holding the staff of the Prophet. Jibraeel and Mikaeel will descend with rows of angels and Jibraeel will step forward and say: O chief and leader! Your prayer has been accepted.

Mufaddal said: My master.s. The light of this effulgence will even enter their homes by which the believers shall be extremely happy.

Thus these people will hear him from the east and the west wherever they might be. whom the Almighty Allah had kept alive on the earth. since before my reappearance to help me.” But they will not know that our Qaim has appeared. His voice will reach to everyone of them and in an instant they would all reach Mecca and join him between Rukn and Maqam.s. After that they will stand before Imam Mahdi (a. is it possible to take allegiance from Imam Qaim (a.” (Surah Zumar 39:74) Then he will stand between the Rukn and Maqam and call out loudly: O my deputies! My special helpers. Mufaddal said: My master. we may abide in the garden where we please.s. that is 313. Then the Almighty Allah will command the ‘Noor’ and a pillar of light will be established from the earth to the heavens through which all the believers of the earth receive light. who were martyred with Imam Husain (a.) till the morning and their number will be equal to the companions of Badr.) before? . along with twelve thousand Shia of Ali (a.

We never saw such signs before. from Allah and the Almighty Allah commands you to pledge allegiance. And when the sun would be up. O Mufaddal. he is the Mahdi of Aale Muhammad . we don’t recognize anyone except four from Mecca and four from Medina and that is so and so. An effulgence will emit from his palm.) said: O Mufaddal every allegiance taken before the reappearance of the Qaim is heresy. There will be a clamor among the people of Mecca. They will say: No. Then they will say to one another.Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a. the hand of Allah is above their hands. he breaks it only to the injury of his own soul…” (Surah Fath 48:10) Thus the first to pledge allegiance to him will be Jibraeel. It is the same shepherd. All this will occur at the time of sunrise. And curse of Allah be on one who takes allegiance on his behalf or one who demands allegiance from him. Then they will say among themselves: Try to recognize someone from his companions.s. hypocrisy and a deception. which will be heard by all in the earth and the heavens: O creatures. Then he will recite the following verse: َ َ ‫عون‬ ِ‫على‬ َ ‫ين ُ ك ُ ث‬ ِ َ ‫ما ي ُب‬ ِ َ ‫ن ي ُب‬ ِ َ‫نَكَث‬ ِ ْ ‫ه َفوْقَ َأي‬ ِ ّ ‫ه ي َد ُ الل‬ ِ ّ ‫ن ال‬ َ ‫ما‬ ّ ‫من‬ ُ ‫اي‬ ُ ‫اي‬ ّ ‫إ‬ َ ّ ‫فإن‬ َ ‫م َف‬ ْ ‫دي ِ ه‬ َ ّ ‫عو َ ن الل‬ َ ّ ‫ك ِإن‬ َ ‫ذي‬ ‫ه‬ ْ َ‫ن‬ ِ ‫س‬ ِ ‫ف‬ “Surely those who swear allegiance to you do but swear allegiance to Allah. Therefore whoever breaks (his faith). a caller will call out from the horizon. the Qaim will lean on the Kaaba and stretch his hand. after that angels and nobles from Jinns and after that nobles will pledge allegiance for him. And he will say: This is the hand of Allah.
