Mahdi is from the Ahlul Bayt (as)

The Prophet (sawa) said, Even if the entire duration of the world’s existence has already been exhausted and only one day is left (before the day of judgment), Allah will expand that day to such a length of time, as to accommodate the kingdom of a person from my Ahle Bayt who will be called by my name. He will fill out the earth with peace and justice as it will have been full of injustice and tyranny (by then).

Also the Holy Prophet (sawa) said, Mahdi is one of us, the members of the household (Ahle Bayt). (Sunan Ibn Majah, volume 2, tradition no. 4085)

It is evident from the above traditions that Imam Mahdi (as) is from the Ahle Bayt of Prophet Mohammed, so he can not be Hazrat Isa (as) (the Messiah). Thus, Mahdi and Messiah are two different personalities but they come at the same time, Mahdi as Imam and Jesus as his follower.


Holy Prophet (sawa) said, “If there remains nothing in this world save one night, a man from the Ahlul Bayt will rule in it.” (Mawaared-uz-Zamane Ela Zawaed Ibne Hibbaan by Hafiz Nooruddin Ali Ibne Abi Bakr, chapter 221, Maa Jaa Fi Mahdi tradition 1876)


Holy Prophet (sawa) said, “The Hour (Qiyamat) will not be established until a man from my Ahlul Bayt will rule.

Holy Prophet (sawa) said, “O Fatemah! Our prophet is the best of all prophets and he is your father; our martyrs are the best of all martyrs and he is uncle of your father – Hamza; and from us is the one who has two wings with which he flies anywhere in paradise and he is the son of your uncle – Jafar; and from us are the chiefs of this Ummat – Hasan and Husain and your sons and from us is the Mahdi.” (Al Bayan Fi Akhbare Sahebuz Zaman, page 98, chapter 2 – Mahdi is from the Progeny of Fatemah) (Sunan Ibne Majah, chapter 34, Bab-ul Khurujul Mahdi, tradition 4085).
