When the time arrives, there will appear a select group of individuals who are appointed to assist in implementing the mandate of the Master of Time (peace be upon him). As such, do not waste your time trying to attack here and there, because this task is already divinely assigned to a selected group of individuals. Be patient, and steadfast. Continue on the path through which the Creator and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) remain pleased.
I received a message that the arrival of the Master of Time (Mahdi) is at hand and his soldiers are ready, and awaiting his arrival. That the supernatural army of the Master of Time (Mahdi) is ready, and awaiting his arrival is the greatest sign of his coming.
His army is full of youth. Twelve thousand of them respond to the name Husayn. Another twelve thousand of them respond to name ‘Ali. When Mahdi (alaihi salam) shall enter Damascus, and call out the Takbir, “Allah is the Greatest!” Twelve thousand of these soldiers will approach from the West. They posses supernatural abilities, and will be riding black stallions. Everyone one of them will carry the Crown of ‘Ali, they will fight for the glory of the House of ‘Ali under the Mahdi. Each one of these supporters of the Mahdi will be known by the (spiritual) name ‘Ali. Their sign is they will be carrying the Dhulfikar sword, and when they draw their swords, they will appear as the flash of thunder in the darkness of the night. These twelve thousand will be from the House of ‘Ali, from his bloodline. They will inherit supernatural power directly from ‘Ali, and will carry it. And do you know how powerful Allah made the beloved ‘Ali?
I heard this from my Shaykh, Mawlana Shaykh ‘Abd Allah ad-Daghestani, and he said ‘if I inform you of something, you can be sure I saw it with ‘Ayn al-Yaqin (the eye of certainty).
‘At their front will be Hadrat ‘Ali, our Master’
“And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: ‘They are dead.’ Nay, they are living, though ye perceive (it) not. (2:154)”
…They resemble the beloved ‘Ali so much that when people see them, they all appear alike, and they would wonder if they are all ‘Ali himself, or others. Allah is Almighty, and able to do all things. This group of twelve thousand from the House of ‘Ali will appear, on the first Takbir of the Mahdi. The hooves of their black stallions will not touch the earth, they will launch their attack on the enemies of the Mahdi from the air, while mounted on their black stallions. You will see them flying. They will defy gravity as do fighter jets. They will appear to be flying and the hooves of their mounts will not touch the earth. At their front will be Hadrat ‘Ali, our Master [07:48-07:58].
There will also be another group of twelve thousand supporters of the Mahdi, who will be recognized by the name Husayn. Another group of twelve thousand will be recognized by the name Hasan. Another twelve thousand will be recognized by the name Ahmed, another twelve thousand by the name Muhammad, another twelve thousand by the name Mahmud. Their Nur will illuminate the darkness of the night sky, wherever they go…And, as for myself, I need help standing now due to my age, but then, when these supporters from the House of ‘Ali appear, inshallah, I will mount my ride easily, without any assistance.
“Muhammad (S) is alive, and shall never die”
Great days are ahead for Islam. If the enemies of Islam could see what days are coming, their hearts would explode, and they would fall down dead. They will witness the meaning of real divine power then…
A Companion of the Prophet (S) was taken by the Djinn. This Companion of the Prophet (S) named Tamim ad-Dari, was ordered by the Prophet to tell the Imposter (ad-Dajjal), “Muhammad is still alive and will never die!”…the Imposter (ad-Dajjal) asked Tamim ad-Dari, “Has Muhammad died?” Tamim ad-Dari replied, “Muhammad is Hayyun, la yamut”, “Muhammad is alive, and shall never die”. This answer of his demoralized the Imposter (ad-Dajjal), he lost half of his strength hearing this. Declaring “Muhammad is alive” weakens ad-Dajjal and breaks his morale. From the Turks alone will come forth seventeen brigades to support the Mahdi, each of them will have twelve thousand soldiers…END
Please recite al-Fatiha for the soul of Shaykh ‘Abd al-Karim (rah), through whose efforts this crucial Suhbah of Mawlana was preserved.

i have a question : Maulana once said in a sohbat that there were 5 ministers of Prophet S.A.W.A.W : Abu bakr,Umar,Talha,Zubair and Ali alaye hi salam.
I never heard this except from maulana and found it confusing because how could it be that 2 of minsiters of Prophet S.A.W.A.W lead an army and retaliative expedition against his legitimate minister,his son-in-law,and the other two ministers try to oppress him?
please explain this matter.
Mawlana has said what is correct according to the position of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jam’ah, the vast majority of his followers. Shi’ism is only by initiation, not something one can just claim to themselves, like the vast majority of Ithna Asharis and so called Zaydis claim today. Its definition is nothing like what the Ulema class have repeatedly lied to the people about. For example, consider the King of Jordan. In essence, him and his blessed ancestors have claimed the throne, and rule, and Caliphate (Sharif Hussein) by Right Divine, on grounds of being from the House of ‘Ali. The goal of Sharif Hussein was to unite the entire Arab world under the Caliphate of the living physical heirs, the descendants, of the Ahl al-Bayt of the Prophet (S). They worked towards this, and united the entire Middle East under their banner in the Great Arab Revolt. When someone claims Right Divine of the Ahl al-Bayt, and thereby their own Divine Right to rule because of descending from that bloodline, which school can we place them in? The Hashemites in Jordan possess a country, and the correct system of governance, monarchy, the closest to the system established by the Messenger of Allah (S), which ensures hereditary succession in spiritual and secular affairs of the state to the family of the Prophet (S), the royal family. The Hashemites have established their Kingdoms on these grounds. What does that make them? On the other side of the border, we have a group who over threw the monarchy, instead of replacing it with its original family instead of the family of the pretender Shah of Iran. This movement empowered the Fuqaha, thinking the Ahl al-Bayt were Fuqaha only. Anyone can be a Faqih, irrespective of bloodline, and as such, this idea in itself opposes the very system of hereditary succession the Ahl al-Bayt argued in favor of. Mawlana said, everything is known by its opposite. You must overcome the mind control of the so called Ulema class, whether Sunni or Shi’ite, to get to the truth. Rasulullah (S) ordered all Muslims and Arabs to follow the Quran, and Ahl al-Bayt. Lastly, in regards to matam carried out by those who claim to be followers of the Ahl al-Bayt, they are wrong and cursed. We mourn the apparent loss of the family of the Prophet (S), as instructed by the Ahl al-Bayt, but can never accept uncivilized forms of matam, which are evidence the so called Shi’ites are not really Shi’ites of the Ahl al-Bayt. Do you really believe Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq cut the foreheads of his children, and practiced such barbaric acts of matam with blades and chains? They are cursed and were set by Iblis to smear the reputation of the followers of the family of the Prophet (S). This is my position, and I am not opposed to mourning the Ahl al-Bayt, as my writings and the writings of the Naqshbandi elders demonstrate. In fact, Persia converted to “Shiite” from Sunni and Shafii, under the Safavids, specifically under Shah Ismail, who spread the writings of the Naqshbandi Mullah Husayn Kashifi, the nephew of Hadrat Jami, another Naqshbandi, and author of the book Rawdat ush-Shuhada. Until today, the first ten day of Muharram in Iran, and in the Persianized Islamic world practice what is known as “Rawda Khani”. This entire culture is indebted to the writings of a Naqshbandi Sufi, who was a follower of the venerable Khwaja Ubaydullah al-Ahrar. Additionally, Imam Khomeni’s favorite author according to his biographers is an individual named Khwaja Abdullah Ansari. Khwaja Abdullah Ansari was also Naqshbandi. He was a student of Khwaja Abul Hasan al-Kharqani, who is one of the GrandShaykhs in the Naqshbandi Golden Chain, and is the successor to Bayazid al-Bistami. Bayazid al-Bistami was initiated by Imam ‘Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (peace be upon him) and died the same year as Imam Hasan al-Askari (peace be upon him). This demonstrates the influence of the Saints of the Golden Chain in the Middle East, in both Persia, and modern day Iran, and with the family of Sharif Hussein, who were also Naqshbandi. However, coming back to the point, matam with chains and blades as practiced by the self-professed “Shi’ites” is a disgusting practice and horrible innovation, which ruins the image of the followers of the family of the Prophet (S), like some practices at Dargahs ruin the name of Sufism. May Allah forgive me.
first of all i’ll thank you for taking time out and replying to my questions.thank you very much.
You said that shi’ism was by initiation.my question here is that were’nt Miqdad,salman,Abu Zarr and Ammar RizwanUllahi anhum ajmaeen recognized as Shia’aan e Ali ?Is’nt it in sawaiq e muharriqah that verily Ali and his shia’s are successful.?Did sunnis exist with the name of ahl e sunnat wal jamaat 1400 years ago?Some people quote the tradition of swaad ul azam,my question to them is that swad ul azam at the time of tragedy of Karbala was supporting yazeed.some companions were also supporting yazeed.So should we follow swad ul azam ?
Well,you said that Hashmites monarchy is closest to Islam.Have the Hashemites of Jordan taken enough measures to implement Islam?Plain monarchy cant be declared close to Islam because even yazeed and his successors were monarch but since they did’nt care for Islam ,we have no respect for them.
And talking about Iran,please dont forget that there supreme leader khamenei is a descendant of ahl e bayt and all their previous leaders as per as my humble knowledge were descendants of ahl e bayt,and they have been successful in implementing Islam.And when you talk about monarchy,your favourite world renowned scholar Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri supports democracy by quoting from Quran “wal amru shuura bayena hum”.He himself is striving for a cleaner democracy in Pakistan,despite the videos of his controversial visions.Every Sunni (neutral) and shia knows that Prophet S.A.W.A.W nominated his 12 successors and told their names to Jabir bin Abdullah RaziAllah anhu.So,my point is that only those 12 are legitimate rulers.
I agree with your stance on maatam that ,maatam with chains and knives destroys the image of Muslims and gives the impression that as if it is a obligatory practice of Islam,yet i remember the instance of Hazrat Uwais Qarni RaziAllah anhu who had broken his teeth,when he heard that 2 teeth of Prophet S.A.W.A.W had become shaheed in Uhad.
With all said about the above comment,i’ll still mention that the uestion mentioned above is still unanswered that how could 2 of ministers of Prophet S.A.W.A.W could retaliate (in Jemel) and 2 of His minsiters oppress the heir of Prophet S.A.W.A.W.?
Your welcome. Miqdad, Salman, Abu Dhar, and Ammar were all initiated, as were 30,000 Companions on the Day of Ghadir Khum. The real assembly of Saints, known after the era of the 12 Imams, as the Aqtab, Abdaal, Awtad, Abrar, Awliya, etc., are the real Shi’ites of ‘Ali through their chains of initiation, known as Silsilah’s, which trace back to the Twelve Imams. There are authentic ahadith, and verses of the Quran regarding “Sunnah”, and as such Ahl al-Sunnah did exist from the era of the Prophet (S). In fact, the Bani Hashem were the first group of Ahl al-Sunnah, in that they followed the Messenger of Allah in every aspect including into wars, and migration. There is a disagreement on whether it was Muawiya ibn Abi Sufyan who invented the term “Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jam’ah”. However, this is irrelevent, since the meaning of Sunnah is to love and follow Ahl al-Bayt. Yazid, his father, and grandfather and grandmother were Muallaf al-Qulub, meaning they did not enter Islam whole heartedly according to the position of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s wife in her book on the Sirah. In fact, it is established by Ahl al-Sunnah scholars that Yazid and those who opposed Imam al-Husayn were not Muslims. As such, no there were not Ahl al-Sunnah, rather they were infidels. The real question is, where were the self professed “Shiites” at the time of the tragedy of Karbala? The only people who stood with Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him) were members of his family. As such, nether Sunni nor Shiite get any credit, rather all credit for supporting and dying for the cause of Imam al-Husayn goes to his blessed family, from whom all Sayyids today descend. There is no need to follow any particular school of Fiqh according to Al Azhar, meaning, it is the same before Allah if you are Hanafi, Shafii, Jafari, or Zaydi. This fatwa has never been refuted nor retracted since, and since we are Sufis, and our focus is spirituality, we do not interfere in such decisions. However, to follow the Naqshbandi Tariqah, one must separate everything he thinks he knows before the knowledge of the Shaykh, this applies for Sunni and Shiites, or else they will never progress in this path.
The greatest order of the Shariat, and Islam, is to establish the government of the family of the Prophet (S) as he instructed. After them, their legal heirs, as per the Holy Quran, would be their descendants like the monarchy of Jordan and other Sayyid dynasties who are Muslim. Yazid was not a Muslim. You have been lied to. David (AS) was a King, and referred to in the Quran as the Caliphatullah, as was Talut, who was Divinely Appointed King, and was granted the Ark of the Covenant as per the Holy Quran. Talut appointed his son in law David to be King after him, and King David was succeeded by his son Sulaiman, who was also a King. Kingship was acceptable even by Rasulullah (S), who send the first delegation from Mecca to Ethiopia, to the Emperor, who was a monarch, from the descendants of King Solomon. The Prophet (S) and his family, namely Jafar ibn Abi Talib, did not oppose the style of government of the King of Ethiopia. On the contrary, according to traditions, the Prophet (S) prayed the funeral prayer for him in absence. Joseph worked for the Kings of Egypt, and the entire dynasty of the Children of Israel accepted this style of rule. In fact, even Moses, when he interacted with the Pharaoh, did not advice him to change his model of government, rather ordered him to stop oppressing the descendants of Prophets. Kings Saul, David, and Solomon’s style of government was undeniably a monarchy, and Allah was happy with it. It was purely hereditary, as is Prophethood and Imamate. Neither do we have respect for Yazid, since he killed our grandfather. May Allah curse him and his supporters. Of course they (Yazid) and most of the Ummayyads, did not care for Islam, most of them were not real believers, and were born out of wedlock.
Ayatullah Khamenei is a descendant of the Ahl al-Bayt. I agree. They should share his lineage with the Arab world, so the Persian threat is once in for all removed. While he is a descendant of Ahl al-Bayt, he does not implement hereditary succession in spiritual and secular matters of the state, as did the Imams, on the contrary, his system is based on Majlis e-Shura, who appoint, through vote, the Supreme Leader, and elections who appoint the President. This is exactly what happened at Saqifa, and was opposed by the entire Bani Hashem and Imam ‘Ali and his sons. Ironically, Ayatullah Khamenei’s system is more “Sunni” as per your definition, then the Saudi system of governing, which although ruthless, is still based on bloodline and hereditary succession to spiritual office (Khadim al-Haramayn) and Kingship (secular powers). Because the people of Hejaz accept this concept, they are the best people on the face of the earth even today.
Also, they did not implement Islam, rather the Safavids before them did for the Shiites, and everyone in Iran who is Muslim today, remained so because of the Sufis of Persia, of past. The Waliyat Faqih system has produced more murtads then any other form of government in the history of the region. According to the highest level teachings of the Imams and the people of truth, and others, a monarchy is necessary for the progress of society. Additionally, it is elementary knowledge that the very definition of Ahl al-Bayt means the House of the Prophet Muhammad. In governance, the term House is used for monarchies and their lines of descent.
No one is denying the status of the Twelve Imams dynasty. I descend from eleven of the twelve. However, in the absence of the Imams, their family are in charge of their affairs, meaning a monarchy is mandatory until the advent of the Mahdi.
Uwais al-Qarni did not do matam with chains and blades. You are welcome to do what he did out of love, no one will oppose you. Matam with blades, knives, and chains is another issue.
There is not a difference of opinion regarding any issue. As far as we are concerned, those who opposed Hadrat ‘Ali in the battles of Jamal and Siffin were Baghi, meaning rebels. That is a Sunni and Shiite position on their actions, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Companions. However, Hadrat ‘Ali did not institutionalize a practice to make public Tabarra on them as you do, from pulpits. Rather he placed those who did the most harm under house arrest, and welcomed their repentance. Anyone who opposed Hadrat ‘Ali, who was the Caliph, opposed Allah and His Messenger. However, that does not mean the door of repentance was closed to them after they failed. I am certain the Mother of the Believers repented for Jamal, because according to clear narrations found, she recalled the hadith of the barking dogs prior to losing the battle. This means, she repented, as she did surrender to Hadrat ‘Ali and accept being placed under house arrest. As the author of Mercy to the Worlds Qadi Sulaiman Mansurpuri said regarding her, may Allah forgive her. This is not an issue, since according to Ahl al-Sunnah only the Prophets are sinless.
