HE WILL HAVE A MOLE SHAPED LIKE A LEAF ON HIS BACK
(HE WILL HAVE A MOLE SHAPED LIKE A LEAF ON HIS BACK)
Abu Bashir says: Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) or Jaffar
Sadik (as) said: “... THERE IS A LEAF BELOW AND TO
THE LEFT OF HIS [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] LEFT SHOULDER
BLADE, JUST LIKE THE LEAF OF THE MYRTLE.”
(Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p.
The hadith provides detailed information about the location of this mole on
the back of Hazrat Mahdi (as): that it is BETWEEN HIS SHOULDERS; BELOW
AND TO THE LEFT OF HIS LEFT SHOULDER. It is also referred to as a LEAFSHAPED
one, so it appears the reference is to one that will be the color of skin,
with distinct edges and raised above the level of the skin, thus resembling a leaf
in shape and of the color of a faded leaf.
