Mawlana Shaykh Mehmet Nazim al-Qubrusi: The Helpers of Imam Mahdi (as) are from Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jam’ah, the non-Arabs (Ajam) await him as well, but their beliefs are not like ours, they believe he is the son of Imam Hasan al-Askari, but they say he disappeared in the well. We say he did not disappear into a well, rather that he was raised to the heavens (until he returns)-Jan 16th, 2011
This was also the belief of Ghawth al-Adham Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani as highlighted by his grandsons in the book Mishkaat an-Nubuwat, and also that of Shaykh al-Akbar Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi, Hadrat Ihsan Khwaja Ubaydullah al-Ahrar and the venerable Khwaja Baha al-Din Shah Naqshband as mentioned by his caliph and biographer Khwaja Muhammad Parsa, who wrote in his Fasl al-Khitab, in the chapter “Ahwal al-Aqtab: Fadhail Khulafa wa Ahlul Bayt”:
“Imam Hasan al-Askari (rad) is the father of Abul Qasim Muhammad al-Muntadhar (rad)…the birth of al-Muntadhar (rad) was on the night of the 15th of Sha’ban, 255…his mother’s name is Narjis”[Fasl al-Khitab [Arabic]: Fadhail Khulafa wa Ahlul Bayt, p. 592, Khwaja Muhammad Parsa].
