Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be someone with green eyes and whose beard is sparse at the sides



HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN WITH GREEN EYES (A’IUN AL-KHADHRA), CURVED EYEBROWS, A SNUB NOSE AND A THICK BEARD THOUGH BEARDLESS TOWARD THE RIGHT CHEEK.  (Reports coming in about the Mahdi, (Nur al-Absar) The Ahl Al-Bayt and the Twelve Imams, Chiefs of the Saints and Stories of the Imams of the Schools (1250),Translated by: Saim Gungor, (Pamuk Publications, April 2004 Vol: 628 77 93))

Hadiths transmitted from our Prophet (saas) provide important information about Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) external appearance..

1.

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN... WITH GREEN EYES (A’IUN AL-KHADHRA).

 

According to hadiths concerning Hazrat Mahdi (as), he will have green eyes.  

2.

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN WITH …CURVED EYEBROWS,

One of the features in the recognition of Hazrat Mahdi (as) is his curved eyebrows:

“HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS)] EYEBROWS ARE CURVED. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

3.

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN... WITH A SNUB NOSE


According to the hadith revealed by our Prophet (saas) the nose of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be small and smooth with a slight protrusion in the middle part:

 “HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) has thick hair, a broad brow and a slight cavity on his brow. HIS NOSE IS SMALL AND THERE IS A SMALL PROTRUSION ON THE CENTER OF HIS NOSE...” (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 13)

4.

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN WITH…A THICK BEARD.

Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard is very attractive and thick.

HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS)] BEARD IS THICK.
(Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)

HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS)] BEARD WILL BE COPIOUS AND THICK.
(Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)

5.

HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS A YOUNG MAN …BEARDLESS TOWARD THE RIGHT CHEEK.

In this hadith our Prophet (saas) provides detail about the shape of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard. He says that the texture of his beard will be light and thin at the sides while the lower part is long.

In another hadith of our Prophet (saas), the shape of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard is described and other details regarding his beard are given. 

... A MAN OF AVERAGE HEIGHT, DARK, MACTHUM (HAVING A BEARD SHAPE THAT IS SMOOTHED, LONGER DOWNWARDS COMPARED TO SIDES), KAWSAJ (SPARSELY BEARDED AT THE SIDES); ... ONE WHO WILL BE KNOWN AS SHUAYB IBN SALEH... (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, al-Fatawa al-Hadithiyya, p. 41)


In the above hadith the word “macthum”," or " HAVING A BEARD SHAPE THAT IS SMOOTHED, LONGER DOWNWARDS COMPARED TO SIDES," gives information about the shape of  Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard and the word “kawsaj” tells us that his beard will be thinner at the sides and that it will be light haired. Thus by the word “kawsaj” in the hadith we are informed that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard will be a light kind of beard, like that of our Prophet (saas) , rather than a heavy one.
