Explaining Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s statement, “He (al-Mahdi) will come from you, he will come from you” to the Turks

On Jan 16th, 2011 Mawlana Shaykh Nazim declared that the Helpers of Imam Mahdi (as) are from Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jam’ah, but believe he is the son of Imam Hasan al-Askari (rad).  However, in this video, he clearly states that the Mahdi will come from amongst the Turks:

Q.  How do you reconcile both of these apparently conflicting statements?

A.  In his book Fasl al-Khitab in the chapter Ahwal al-Aqtab: Fadhail Khulafa wa Ahlul Bayt p. 592, the venerable Khwaja Muhammad Parsa states,

“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].

The wife of Imam Hasan al-Askari (radhi Allahu anh), Malika Narjis (radhi Allahu anha) embraced Islam on his hands, and was the granddaughter of Bardas (d. 866), the brother of Byzantine Empress Theodora.  Bardas engineered Theoktistos’ fall and became the regent for his nephew, Michael III (r. 842–867), who was just two years old when he succeeded as sole emperor of the Byzantine Empire.  Bardas rose to the rank of Caesar and was the effective ruler of the Byzantine Empire, also known as the Eastern Roman Empire, for ten years.

The capital of the Byzantine Empire was Constantinople, known today as Istanbul, Turkey.

According to early Ottoman traditions, the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II, el-Fatih (the Conqueror) agreed to capture Constantinople only after being convinced by his spiritual advisor Aksemseddin that Imam Mahdi al-Muntadhar was hidden in the conquering army.

Following the conquest of Constantinople in 1453, Sultan Mehmet II, el-Fatih, the Conqueror, assumed the title “Kayser-i-Rûm” (Caesar of the Roman Empire). The adoption of the title implied that the Ottoman state considered itself the continuation, by absorption, of the Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire, a view not shared in the West.

When al-Mahdi comes, he will continue, through absorption, the Roman Empire as the Ottomans did, as well as the Rightly Guided Caliphate of the Ishmaelites, in addition to the ancient Egyptian monarchy.

This is why Mawlana Shaykh Nazim said, “he (al-Mahdi) will come from you, he will come from you” to the Turks.  Mawlana was not referring to the Turks as an ethnic group, rather to the people of Turkey, meaning he will rise from Constantinople; Istanbul.

Over thirty-two nations will establish their ancestral relation to the bloodline of Imam Mahdi al-Muntadhar when he appears, including the Persians and the Pakistani’s through Abraham.  This is why the earth will expel its treasures after his arrival, not only because his time will be one of abundance of wealth for mankind, but also to establish the archaeological evidence linking nations by blood to Mahdi al-Muntadhar.

    it is very illuminating that which Mawlana Nazim has to say,
    and in respect to Al Muntadhar especially, alhamdulilAllah
    one can hear ulamas talking finally on this matter, as from where I am there is hardly any mention of Al Muntadhar,
    if ther’s mor in that respect,could you kindly post it, or compile it on Mawlana’s website?

    You wrote “Over thirty-two nations will establish their ancestral relation to the bloodline of Imam Mahdi al-Muntadhar when he appears, including the Persians and the Pakistani’s through Abraham A.S.”

    Kindly substantiate the aforementioned for us.

      In his History of the Jews, the Jewish scholar and theologian Flavius Josephus (37 – 100 A.D.), wrote that the Greek philosopher Aristotle had said: “…These Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named by the Indians Calani.” (Book I:22.)

      Clearchus of Soli wrote, “The Jews descend from the philosophers of India. The philosophers are called in India Calanians and in Syria Jews. The name of their capital is very difficult to pronounce. It is called ‘Jerusalem.'”

      “Megasthenes, who was sent to India by Seleucus Nicator, about three hundred years before Christ, and whose accounts from new inquiries are every day acquiring additional credit, says that the Jews ‘were an Indian tribe or sect called Kalani…'” (Anacalypsis, by Godfrey Higgins, Vol. I; p. 400.)

      Martin Haug, Ph.D., wrote in The Sacred Language, Writings, and Religions of the Parsis, “The Magi are said to have called their religion Kesh-î-Ibrahim.They traced their religious books to Abraham, who was believed to have brought them from heaven.” (p. 16.)

      There are certain striking similarities between the Hindu god Brahma and his consort Saraisvati, and the Jewish Abraham and Sarai, that are more than mere coincidences. Although in all of India there is only one temple dedicated to Brahma, this cult is the third largest Hindu sect.

      In his book Moisés y los Extraterrestres, Mexican author Tomás Doreste states,
      Voltaire was of the opinion that Abraham descended from some of the numerous Brahman priests who left India to spread their teachings throughout the world; and in support of his thesis he presented the following elements: the similarity of names and the fact that the city of Ur, land of the patriarchs, was near the border of Persia, the road to India, where that Brahman had been born.

      The name of Brahma was highly respected in India, and his influence spread throughout Persia as far as the lands bathed by the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. The Persians adopted Brahma and made him their own. Later they would say that the God arrived from Bactria, a mountainous region situated midway on the road to India. (pp. 46-47.)

      Bactria (a region of ancient Afghanistan) was the locality of a prototypical Jewish nation called Juhuda or Jaguda, also called Ur-Jaguda. Ur meant “place or town.” Therefore, the bible was correct in stating that Abraham came from “Ur of the Chaldeans.” “Chaldean,” more correctly Kaul-Deva (Holy Kauls), was not the name of a specific ethnicity but the title of an ancient Hindu Brahmanical priestly caste who lived in what are now Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Indian state of Kashmir.

      “The tribe of Ioud or the Brahmin Abraham, was expelled from or left the Maturea of the kingdom of Oude in India and, settling in Goshen, or the house of the Sun or Heliopolis in Egypt, gave it the name of the place which they had left in India, Maturea.” (Anacalypsis; Vol. I, p. 405.)

      “He was of the religion or sect of Persia, and of Melchizedek.”(Vol. I, p. 364.)

      “The Persians also claim Ibrahim, i.e. Abraham, for their founder, as well as the Jews. Thus we see that according to all ancient history the Persians, the Jews, and the Arabians are descendants of Abraham.(p.85) …We are told that Terah, the father of Abraham, originally came from an Eastern country called Ur, of the Chaldees or Culdees, to dwell in a district called Mesopotamia. Some time after he had dwelt there, Abraham, or Abram, or Brahma, and his wife Sara or Sarai, or Sara-iswati, left their father’s family and came into Canaan. The identity of Abraham and Sara with Brahma and Saraiswati was first pointed out by the Jesuit missionaries.”(Vol. I; p. 387.)

    That is their claim. For me, it is because of the Pathan descent from King Saul, who was a descendant of Benjamin son of Jacob son of Isaac son of Abraham. The Pathan’s are the largest ethnic group (not culture) in Pakistan. This is why initially the Founder of Pakistan and the leading Ulema did not have an issue with Pakistan being a constitutional monarchy under the British royal family who claim descent from King David. The Monarchy of Pakistan (the Pakistani monarchy) was the system of government in which a hereditary monarch was the sovereign of the Dominion of Pakistan from 1947 to 1956, when it was abolished.
