HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)HAS THE SEAL OF "PROPHETHOOD" ON HIS SHOULDER



(HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)HAS THE SEAL OF "PROPHETHOOD" ON HIS SHOULDER)
We understand from the hadiths that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a clear
sign on his back, between his shoulders, as in the Prophet’s (saas). This sign is
known as the “the Seal of Prophethood.”
Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have the sign of prophethood on
his shoulder as the Prophet (saas) did. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami,
Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 41)
The sign of the Prophet (saas) is on his shoulder. (Al-
Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 165; Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-
Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 23)
The mark of the Prophet (saas) is on his shoulder. (Al-
Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)
Our Prophet (saas) has revealed that there will be A SIGN BELONGING
TO OUR PROPHET (SAAS) on Hazrat Mahdi’s body. Other hadiths state that
THIS SIGN IS THE PROPHET’S SEAL OF PROPHETHOOD and this is compared
to the PROPHET’S MARK. This is yet another astonishing detail about
Hazrat Mahdi (as).
As we know, THE SEAL IS DARK IN COLOR and COVERS THE SURFACE.
In addition, the location of this mark on Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) back is pinned
down by the provision of specific coordinates. Accounts state that every prophet
has the seal of prophethood on his right hand. The seal of our Prophet (saas)
is described as being “at the level of his heart on the skin of his left shoulder
blade.” The reference in the hadiths to Hazrat Mahdi (as) having the seal of
prophethood of our Prophet (saas) on his shoulder shows that he will also have
“A DARK MARK AT THE LEVEL OF HIS HEART ON HIS BACK, ON HIS
LEFT SHOULDER BLADE.”
