Hazrat Mahdi's (as) night service (lessons)

Hazrat Mahdi's (as) night service (lessons)

Certainly RISING AT NIGHT has a stronger effect and is more conducive to concentration. (Surat al-Muzzammil, 6)

THE PART OF THE NIGHT THEY SPENT ASLEEP WAS SMALL. And they would seek forgiveness before the dawn. (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 17-18)

In the same way that our Prophet (saas) carried out observances at night, so Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers will not only preach during the day; they will also continue at night, through such means as the internet, television and radio

Naim ibn Hammad reported thus from Abu Jafar: ... AT NIGHTS HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL BE ENGAGED IN WORSHIP while he will be hidden during the day... (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu’s-saqib fi Bayan Anna’l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal)


From Yahya bin Nufal, indeed Musa ibn Ja’far (as) raises his hands and supplicates after afternoon prayer, I inquire from him saying, “For whom did you offer prayer?” He said: “For Al-Mahdi (as) among the family of Muhammad (saas)” and continued: “… HIS NIGHT SHALL GUARD THE STARS BY HIS BOWING DOWN AND PROSTRATION TO ALLAH, he whom the blames of those that blame shall not affect him before Allah, he is the luminous candle, he shall rise with the command of Allah.” (Bihar al-Anwar, 86-81)

... a nation will be honed as a metalsmith hones the tip of an arrow – THEIR EYES WILL BE ENLIGHTENED WITH REVELATION, THEIR EARS FILLED WITH ANALYSIS AND BOWLS OF KNOWLEDGE WILL BE RAISED TO THEM NIGHT AND DAY. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, Ansariyan Publications, collected by: Muhammad Baqr al-Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 186)

... [THANKS TO HIS (HAZRAT MAHDI’S [AS]) BLESSING] SOMEONE WHO IS IGNORANT, FEARFUL AND MEAN AT NIGHT WILL BE LEARNED, BRAVE AND GENEROUS IN THE MORNING. His [Allah’s] help will go before him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] ... he will follow in the footsteps of the messenger of Allah and make no errors; there will be an angel who supports him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] without his seeing it, he will set the exhausted on their feet and help the weak, he will practice what he preaches and his words will match his actions. (Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi, Al-Futuhat al-Makkiyah, p. 6)

Nuaim ibn Hammad relates from Abu Ja’far; "HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL APPEAR in Mecca AT NIGHT with our Prophet’s (saas) standard, shirt, sword, signs, radiance and pleasant facial expression. WHEN HE PERFORMS THE NIGHT PRAYER HE WILL ADDRESS PEOPLE IN A LOUD VOICE, SAYING:

"O people, I remind you of Almighty Allah, and that your place is beside your Lord. Almighty Allah has sent the prophets and the Books and commanded that no equals be ascribed to Him. He commanded you to obey Allah and His Messenger (saas). He has commanded you to live so long as the Qur’an lives, and to vanish when the Qur’an vanishes. He has commanded you to help with finding the true path and to unite in taqwa. Because the end of the world is at hand.” (Ali Ibn Sultan Muhammad al-Qaari al-Harawi al-Hanafi, Risalat Mashrab al Vardi fi Mazhabi 'l Mahdi)

Abu Abdullah Nuaim ibn Hammad relates from Abdullah ibn Mas'ud: "... Allah will place affection for him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] in people’s hearts. He will then join a group of people who are lions by day and DEVOUT BELIEVERS BY NIGHT. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu’s-saqib fi Bayan Anna’l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam ve'l Qamal)

Similar to those who fought in Badr, he will command 313 people and challenge unbelievers. That is because these 313 people will have the attributes of WORSHIPPERS BY NIGHT and heroes by day. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 169)

They consist of a group, including women, of 314 people. They will overcome all tyrants. Their hearts are like iron, and they are lions by day and DEVOUT BELIEVERS BY NIGHT. Neither those before nor after them can match them in self-sacrifice. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 57-58)

They [companions of Hazrat Mahdi (as)] are DEVOUT BELIEVERS BY NIGHT and lions by day. (Mikyaal al-Makaarem, Vol. 1, p. 65)

Upon this call, 313 people, as many as the People of Badr, who were not previously allied together will immediately appear, and WORSHIP BY NIGHT and act as lions by day... (Mari’ bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)

Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers will communicate the religion of Allah by means of television, internet and satellite

Al-Khani says: “I asked Al-Imam Abu Jaffar ibn Muhammad ibn Ali Al-Baqir and he said “[HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL APPEAR like a meteor shining/burning ON A DARK NIGHT. If you live to see this time, your hearts will know peace.” (Kitab al-Ghayba, [Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51], Ansariyan Publications, Collected by: Muhammad Baqir Majlisi, Iran-Qum, 2003, p. 206)

The imam (as) [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will [spiritually] conquer the east and west of the world and bring Islam [Islamic moral values] to rule across the world… Almighty Allah will give people such a power that EVERYONE WILL HEAR HIS [HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS)] VOICE FROM WHERE THEY ARE, and the imam (as) will give life to Islam… (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 279 and Vol. 53, p. 12 Ikmal-ud-Din, Vol. 2, p. 367)

When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, Allah will cause such power of vision and hearing to be manifested in believers that HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL CALL TO THE WHOLE WORLD FROM WHERE HE IS, WITH NO POSTMAN INVOLVED, AND THEY WILL HEAR AND EVEN SEE HIM. (Lutfullah Saafi Gulpaygani, Muntakhab al-Asar Fee Al Imam al-Saani al-Ashar, p. 483)

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WALKS ABOUT with flammy torch of guidance IN THE UNIVERSE and lives as the genuine believers... (Al-Mahdi al-Maw’ud, Vol. 1, pp. 281-282, 266, 300)

Allah will give so much power to him [Hazrat Mahdi (as)]. He will remove cruelty from the world OVERNIGHT... (Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi, Al-Futuhat al-Makkiyah, p. 66; Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 186)

... THEY [Hazrat Mahdi (as) and his followers] WILL POSSESS THE POWER TO TRAVEL THE WORLD IN MINUTES. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 318; Mikyaal al-Makaarem, Vol. 1, p. 148 from Basaaer al-Darajaat)
