ALLAH WILL UNITE THE STUDENTS OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)
Jaffar al Juaffi narrates from Imam Muhammad Ibn Ali al Bakr: “When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears he will have 313 men and 50 women with him, there will be no previous agreement among them, but they will come together in the same way that different clouds combine in the sky. This is a manifestation of Allah’s verse “Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all together. Truly Allah has power over all things.”
(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 223)
There will also be women among Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) students. The hadith notes that the students of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not know one another, but that Allah will collect them together from different places. Allah also reveals in the Qur’an that He will bring believers together.
