Birth and Imamate
The promised Mahdi, who is usually mentioned by his
title of Imam-i 'Asr (the Imam of the "Period") and Sahib al-Zaman (the
Lord of the Age), is the son of the eleventh Imam. His name is the same
as that of the Holy Prophet. He was born in Samarrah in 256/868 and
until 260/872 when his father was martyred, lived under his father's
care and tutelage. He was hidden from public view and only a few of the
elite among the Shi'ah were able to meet him. After the martyrdom of his
father he became Imam and by Divine Command went into occultation (ghaybat).
Thereafter he appeared only to his deputies (na'ib) and even then only
in exceptional circumstances.
The Imam's Deputies
The Imam chose as a special deputy for a time Uthman
ibn Sa'id Umari, one of the companions of his father and grandfather who
was his confidant and trusted friend. Through his deputy the Imam would
answer the demands and questions of the Shi'ah. After Uthman ibn Sa'id,
his son Muhammad ibn Uthman Umari was appointed the deputy of the Imam.
After the death of Muhammad ibn Uthman, Abu'l Qasim Husayn ibn Ruh
Nawbakhti was the special deputy, and after his death Ali ibn Muhammad
Simmari was chosen for this task. A few days before the death of Ali ibn
Muhammad Simmari in 329/939 an order was issued by the Imam stating that
in six days Ali ibn Muhammad Simmari would die. Henceforth the special
deputation of the Imam would come to an end and the major occultation (ghaybat-i
kubra) would begin and would continue until the day God grants
permission to the Imam to manifest himself.
The Two Occultations
The occultation of the twelfth Imam is, therefore,
divided into two parts: the first, the minor occultation (ghaybat-i
sughra) which began in 260/872 and ended in 329/939, lasting about
seventy years; the second, the major occultation which commenced in
329/939 and will continue as long as God wills it. In a hadith upon
whose authenticity everyone agrees, the Holy Prophet has said, "If there
were to remain in the life of the world but one day, God would prolong
that day until He sends in it a man from my community and my household.
His name will be the same as my name. He will fill the earth with equity
and justice as it was filled with oppression and tyranny."
Rest assured that no one has a special relationship with Allah. Whoever
denies me is not my follower. The appearance of the relief (Al-Faraj) depends solely upon Allah, therefore
those who propose a certain time for it, are liars. As to the benefit of my
existence in occultation, it is like the benefit of the sun behind clouds
where the eyes do not see. Indeed my existence is an amnesty for the people
of the earth. Pray much to Allah to hasten the relief, therefore in it also
lies the release from your sufferings.
* Our master of the time has said, "And because of me Allah removes the
calamities from my Progeny & my Shias."
Imam e Zamana (ATFS) also said, "And they should know that the truth is with
us & in us."
* (You) be an adornment for us and do not be a source of disgrace for us."
