Hazrat Khizr Condoled Ahle Bayt (as)

This is one of many incidents which are available which establishes the long life of Hazrat Khizr (as), which is turn is one of the outstanding proofs for the long life of Imam Mahdi (as).

Imam Reza (as) said, “When the Prophet (sawa) passed away from this world and calamities came down on the Ahle Bayt (as). At that time Ameerul Momeneen, Fatemah, Hasan and Husain (as) were present in the room in which the holy body of the Holy Prophet (sawa) was laid.

Suddenly there came a voice, “Assalaamu Alaikum O Ahle Bayt! Every living being will taste the taste of death. Your reward will be given fully to you in the Qiyamat. If anyone dies, verily, Allah is his substitute and successor Who provides patience in every calamity and He is the remover of its harm. He compensates every loss. So rely only on Him because the (real) loser is he who loses the reward of Allah.”

Amirul Momineen (as) said, “He (the invisible speaker) is my brother Khizr (as). He has come to condole you on the death of your Prophet (sawa).” (Kamaluddin volume 2 chapter 38, tradition 5)

“When the Prophet (sawa) passed away a man came to present his condolences. They could hear him but were not able to see him. He said: “Peace be on you and the mercy of Allah and His bounties. Every living being will taste the taste of death. Your reward will be given fully to you in the Qiyamat. If anyone dies, verily, Allah is his substitute and successor Who provides patience in every calamity and He is the remover of its harm. He compensates every loss. So rely only on Him because the (real) loser is he who loses the reward of Allah.”

Imam Ali Ibne Abi Talib (as) said, “Do you know who that is?” “No,” they replied. He said, “It is Khizr (as).” (Kamaluddin volume 2 chapter 38, tradition 7)

Shaykh Sudooq (ar) says, Most of our opponents accept the traditions about Khizr (as) and they believe that he is alive but he cannot be seen, and that he is present where he is remembered. Neither the opponents deny his long life nor say that these traditions are illogical. However they object to the long life of Imam Mahdi (as). These people believe that it is within the power of Allah to keep a person alive till the blowing of the horn. They agree to the life and occultation of the accursed Iblees till the known time. But they do not accept the longevity and occultation of the Proof of Allah even though authentic traditions have come down from the Messenger of Allah (sawa) regarding his name and clarifying about his genealogy and origin.
