HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS) SPIRITUAL FEATURES AND SUPERIOR MORAL VALUES

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is extremely submissive towards Allah. In moral terms, he is like the Prophet (saas). (Portents of the Last Day, Barzanji, p.163)

A child of mine whose morality is similar to me will emerge. (Al-Burhan fi `Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 21)  

Allah describes our Prophet’s (saas) superior moral values:

“And, doubtlessly, you are blessed with a great moral character.” (Surat al-Qalam, 4)

BELIEVERS ADOPT HIS MORAL VIRTUE AS A ROLE MODEL

He attains divine virtue. He receives knowledge of the faith and exemplary moral virtue from Allah. (Konavi Risalat al-Mahdi, p. 161 B)

The Qur’an reveals that our Prophet (saas) is the finest possible role model for true believers:

You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surah al-Ahzab, 21)
 
HE IS FIGHTER AND VALIANT

The days and nights will not end until a man from the Family of my House [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], who will easily prevent disorder and who will not be dissuaded from doing so even by threatened to be killed, appears. (Al-Suyuti, Portents of the Mahdi, p. 13)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be dedicated to his work. (Portents of the Last Day, Barzanji, p. 175)

He will continue his struggle until people return to the truth. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar, Ahmad ibn Hajar Makki, p. 23)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will perform his duties scrupulously and will not go back on his word. (The Book of Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, p. 24)

Even if mountains rise up before him he will crush and cross them, and he will find a path for himself in those mountains. (The Book of Portents of the Awaited Mahdi, p. 39)

Allah speaks of His messengers’ excellent moral values and valiant natures in many verses. They responded to their peoples’ denial, mockery, snares, and assaults in the finest possible manner and always overcame them, with Allah’s help.

Therefore, carry out the orders given to you and disregard the idol worshippers. (Surat Al-Hijr, 94)

Therefore, do not obey the unbelievers and strive mightily against them with this (Qur’an). (Surat al-Furqan, 52)

Those who respond to Allah and his Messenger, despite the persecution they suffer, and maintain their good works and lead a righteous life will have a great reward. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 172)
 
HE WILL FEAR ALLAH

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is a person who, as the shaking of a bird’s wings, has a deep fear for Allah.  (The Book of Portents of the Awaited Mahdi of the End Times [Al- Burhan fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar], p. 23)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) is extremely submissive towards Allah. (Portents of the Last Day, Barzanji, p.163)  

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be so compassionate that no one will be woken up from their sleep or have a bleeding nose. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, p. 42)  

His compassion for the poor is one of the signs of Hazrat Mahdi (as). (Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr,)

He has great compassion for the wronged. (Nu’aym ibn Hammad, vr. 50b; Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu al-Saqib)

In listing Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) characteristics, the great Islamic scholar Ibn al-Arabi refers to his superior compassionate thus:

1 He has foresight,
2 He understands the Book,
3 He knows the meaning of verses,
4 He knows that state and actions of those he will assign,
5 He will still be compassionate and just even when angered,
6 He knows the classes of beings,
7 He knows the intricate aspects of affairs,
8 He has a sound understanding of people’s needs, and
9 The manifestation of secret things in his time, because only then will he be able to resolve any problems that may arise. (Signs of the Judgment Day, p. 189)

The hadiths say that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) protective instincts are very powerful. He will respond to every word spoken and neutralize every action taken against Islam.

Even a single word spoken against Islam will offend him. (al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar, p. 30)

He is from my community, a man who does not lower himself (who feels gratitude only toward Allah). (al-Suyuti, Al-Hawi, 2/24)

Hussain was asked: “By what signs will Hazrat Mahdi (as) be known?” He replied, “… People will need him, but he will express his needs to no one.” (Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr)

He assumes all duties and helps the weak and lowly. (Muhyiddin ibn al-Arabi Futuhat al-Makkiye, 366, vol. 3, p. 327- 28)

Hussain (ra) was asked: “By what signs will Hazrat Mahdi (as) be known?” He replied: “By his ease of heart and dignity, by his knowing what is lawful and what is unlawful.” (Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr)

The Mahdi will defend the truth against the oppressors. Indeed, he will extract the molar tooth (anything unjustly held) of a (cruel) person and restore it to its rightful owner. (Al-Uqayli, Al-Najmu al-Saqib)

At a time of (systems) change, a man known as the Mahdi will come. He will be pure and beautiful. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 14)

He will appear at a time of strife, and his purity will be unmatched. (Al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar, p. 24)

There will be a caliph in the End Times who will distribute goods without counting or calculating them. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 15)

A leader will come from your leaders, and he will not count goods. Whenever he is asked for something, he will say: “Take it.” That person will then lay out his shirt and fill it. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi, p. 15)
