THE HYPOCRITICAL CHARACTER FROM THE HADITHS OF THE PROPHET (SAAS)
MANY MORE PEOPLE WILL AVOID SINS OUT OF FEAR OF HIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] RATHER THAN OF THE QUR'AN..."
Al-Futuhatu'l Makkiyah, p. 6
Asbag Ibn Nabata says: Ali, Commander of the faithful, said: "...No more you than kohl on the eye or salt in food will remain. And I shall give you an example: A man has a quantity of wheat. He cleans it and stores it in his house. When he returns to it a long time later, he sees it is full of weevils. He cleans it again and again puts it in his home. When he comes back to it after another long time, he sees it is again infested with weevils. He repeats the same processes. WHAT EVENTUALLY REMAINS IS A VERY LITTLE HEALTHY WHEAT THAT WEEVILS CANNOT HARM. You are like that. At the end, a small group of you will be left that corruption cannot harm.”
(Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Ibn Said also transmits the same hadith.)
(Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Nomani, al-Ghaybah al-Nomani, p. 246)
Those who abandon or are opposed to him (Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be able to do him no harm. He will continue on the path of victory despite those who abandon him.
(Ramuz al-Ahadith, p. 487; from Al-Tabarani’s Qabir)
... From Abu Bashir: Imam Jaffar Sadiq (as) said this about the verse. “You would know them by their mark” (Surah Muhammad, 30): ALLAH KNOWS THEM, HOWEVER THIS VERSE HAS BEEN REVEALED CONCERNING THE QAIM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)]. HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL KNOW THEM (THE HYPOCRITES) FROM THEIR FACES AND WITH HIS COMMUNITY, HE WILL (SPIRITUALLY) DESTROY THEM.
(Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Nomani, al-Ghaybah al-Nomani, p. 283)
O people, Almighty Allah has certainly FORBIDDEN YOU THE CRUEL, THE HYPOCRITES AND THEIR FOLLOWERS and has made Hazrat Mahdi (as), the most auspicious of the community of Muhammad … your commander, so join him.
(Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar, fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntazar, Ahmad Ibn Hajar al-Makki, p. 31)
From Nahj al-Balaga: The lord of believers (saas) said: "When he [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] hides away from people, NOT EVEN TRACKERS WILL BE ABLE TO SEE ANY TRACE OF HIM…
Kitab al-Ghaybat, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, collected by: Muhammad Baqr al-Majlis, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 186.
…at the end of time two currents of irreligion will gain strength:
One of them: Under the veil of duplicity, a fearsome individual named the Sufyan will deny the messengership of Muhammad (pbuh), and coming to lead the dissemblers, will try to destroy the Islamic Shari‘a [way of belief and practice]. To oppose him, a luminous individual called MUHAMMAD MAHDI OF THE FAMILY OF THE PROPHET will come to lead the people of sainthood and perfection, who are bound to the luminous chain of the Family of the Prophet, and HE WILL KILL THE CURRENT OF DISSEMBLERS, which will be the collective personality of the Sufyan, and scatter it.
(The Sixth Sign; Letters / Fifteenth Letter - p.79)
THIS WILL CONTINUE VICTORIOUSLY DESPITE THOSE WHO DEPART. HIS OPPONENTS AND THOSE WHO LEAVE HIM WILL DO HIM NO HARM...
(Transmitted by Hazrat Jabir (ra); Great Portents of Doomsday, 487/6)
At Allah’s command, A COMMUNITY FROM MY UMMAH WILL CONSTANTLY AND HEROICALLY STRIVE AGAINST THE FOE, AND THEIR OPPONENTS WILL DO THEM NO HARM. This will continue until Doomsday.
(Portents of Doomsday, 28)
He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will depart from them for a time, and thus people of deviance will be separated. So that the ignorant will say: There is no need for the Family of Muhammad [one from the line of our Prophet (saas)] in order to reach Allah.”
(Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Nomani, al-Ghaybah al-Nomani, p. 161)
