Identity of Imam Mahdi

Long time ago when Isa as left his disciples, people around the world, especially were Jews and Christian, are waiting for the last prophet who will be able to lead people to the save path. They called him as Mesiah.

Signs and Marks of the last prophet were very clear stated in Allah’s holy books, such as in Zabur, Tawret and Bible. So, due that the signs and marks were already very clear stated in the holy books about the last prophet, then the Jews Rabi and the Christian Priest are knowing him such as they know their own children.

الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَعْرِفُونَهُ كَمَا يَعْرِفُونَ أَبْنَاءَهُمْ ۖ وَإِنَّ فَرِيقًا مِنْهُمْ لَيَكْتُمُونَ الْحَقَّ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ
“Those to whom We gave the Scripture know him as they know their own sons. But indeed, a party of them conceal the truth while they know [it].” (QS 2:146)

Then as for today, people are also waiting for a leader at the end of time with the name Imam Mahdi. But, unfortunately there is none of the verse in the Qoran nor in the previous holly books of Alla which stated clearly and explicitly about this.

Neither it was informed about the signs and marks of Imam Mahdi within those Allah’s holly books. The ones that stated about this matter and referred as basic of understanding and faith about Imam Mahdi by most of moslem people are only the hadith books.

When our guru was asked by his disciples about Imam Mahdi, then he could not give much information about this matter. It is because there were actually no clue and guidance from Allah swt about Imam Mahdi. The one that he understand is actually Imam Mahdi is only a representative of a leader who brings guidance and truth at the end of time. So, he does not need to be the one who is exactly named Mahdi.

Then, if so, how about the thousands of hadiths which told about the arriving, signs and marks of Imam mahdi? Are those hadiths really come from Rasulullah saw? The answer is Wallahu Alam, God Knows.

If in case that those hadiths are really true, then why there is no clear and explicit statement in the Qoran and previous Allah’s holly books? Let us now start to think about this matter. (AK/ST)
