The world after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom; to the Ahl al Bayt (pbu th)âs followers
There have been five views among the Ahl al Bayt (pbu th)âs followers; some of them are mentioned here:
- The conditions after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom will be prosperous, and his successors will be of the Returners [will be alive after death].
Of the deep beliefs among the Shia, is the belief in the reviving of two groups: True believers and pure disbelievers. As the people who have this view believe that, the world wonât be without any á¸¤ujjat, they describe the world after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom in two ways:
a/ There, the resurrection will take place straightforwardly!
b/ There will come Godâs proofs [á¸¤ujjats] who are the mediator of Godâs grace. So, those who will govern the people will be the very ImÄm (pbu th).
- The world after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom, will be ruled by one of the Prophet (pbuh&h)âs Ahl al Bayt (pbu th).
JÄbir ibn YazÄ«d JuÊ¿fÄ« said:
I learned from ImÄm BÄqir (pbuh) that he stated, âI swear to God, a man of us, Ahl al Bayt, will verily rule for 309 years.â JÄbir kept on, âI requested, âWhen will it be?!â The Excellency stated, âAfter QÄÊ¾im âs death [martyrdom]â¦â
Â Sunni’s belief about the conditions after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom
Most of the Sunnis believe that, after ImÄm MahdÄ« (mGehr)âs martyrdom, there will be no good in life! And the world will continue in chaos!!
In the book âAl-Burhan fi `Alamat al-MahdÄ« [mGehr]â, there is a chapter titled âFi Mawt al MahdÄ« (mGehr) wa Dhikr Ahwal TaghaÊ¾ BaÊ¾dahâ. In that, the way The Excellency will be killed and the events after that were mentioned. Also in some [Sunni] narrations, it refers to the chaos and evils after The Excellencyâs martyrdom.
in addition, in the book âAqd al Durarâ, Abu Sa’id Khudri narrated from the Holy Prophet (pbuh&h) which ends with:
â¦ [MahdÄ« âs government] will continue till seven, eight, or nine years. Yet, there wonât be any Khayr after him!
Well, how is it accordant with God’s wisdom, if after a history full of ups and down, the government falls into the hands of the worthy people; the intellects would grow; the earth would be governed on the basis of justice, but after the Imam’s death, everything will return to the previous bad unfavorable situation?
