It should be known that after the creation of Adam, Allah Ta'ala taught Adam (peace be upon him) and caused the angels to prostrate themselves. Then Allah Ta'ala created the material resources of the earth and the sky, and for His knowledge He created Hazrat Amma Hawa from Sayyidana Adam (علی نبینا و علیہ السلام ). He sent down both from heaven to the earth and this is how the human race began. They came and told people the way, one is two way to heaven and the other is the way to hell. Encouraging good deeds, he ordered to have firm belief in the hereafter and made it clear that this world is temporary and mortal, while the day of judgment know only Allah hereafter is fixed and the life of the hereafter is permanent and remaining. It is said in the Holy Qur'an.
Translation: Indeed, the knowledge of the Day of Resurrection is with Allah, the Exalted, He sends rain and knows what is in the wombs of mothers. On the second place, in Surah A'raf, Allah says:
Translation: These people ask you about the Day of Judgment, when will it happen? So tell me that only my Lord knows about it, and when the time of Day of Judgment comes, Allah will reveal it and make it clear.
There is a hadith Gabriel, whose narrator is Hazrat Umar (RA) that when Hazrat Gabriel (A.S.) came to the assembly of the Prophet (S.A.W.) in Madinah in human form and asked the Prophet (S.A.W.) to teach the companions the basics of Islam. Asked Him some questions, one of which was about the Day of Resurrection. So the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said in reply, "The one who is in charge of the knowledge of the questioner is the one who is questioned." They do not know more than that. But the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has informed the Ummah about the signs of the Day of Resurrection. It is divided into three parts.
- Minor signs
- Central signs
- kubra signs
Among the great signs, the appearance of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him) is also a big sign. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has clearly stated about this in the blessed hadiths and explained to the Ummah that those who hold the position of Imam Mahdi What will be their signs, when and at what time will they appear and which family will they belong to? In some blessed verses of Furqan Hameed of the Holy Qur'an, there is also a reference to Imam Mahdi (RA).
But there have been many people in the past and now in the near future who claimed Mahdism by applying these signs to themselves and tried to mislead the Ummah.
