Imam Mahdi امام مهدی (eBook)
The Just Leader of Humanity
In the Name of God, the Passionate, the Merciful
The belief in the existence of the awaited Mahdi, the Imam who is absent but alive, is an Islamic belief. The belief that is strongly validated by consecutive and verifiable resources and its authenticity shall not be questioned. However, most of its related notions need further examination including Imam Mahdi's age, his lengthy occultation, the reason behind his occultation, the blessings brought about by the awaited Mahdi when he is still in occultation, the responsibilities of the Muslim community at the time of his absence, the signs of his reappearance, his global revolution, how he shall combat and conquer, the weapons of Mahdi’s troops, and tens of other concepts. Due to the multiple criticisms that are issued by the opponents of this belief, and since their ideas are especially appealing to the young and educated generation, a dire need of providing contradicting arguments was felt. Despite the many books that have been authored on the awaited Mahdi, unfortunately, many authors did not take into account these opposing remarks and did nothing to challenge them. The late Ayatollah Amini was aware of this need for years and that is why he ventured to author a book that would deliver validated information on the awaited Mahdi to the reader hoping it would answer their questions in this regard. Thankfully, he was able to publish this book in 1967 in order to be presented to reading enthusiasts. Then, in the coming years, the book was published containing the revision and multiple added notions and was introduced to its enthusiasts.
This book has now become available as an ebook with various options, and offered in different languages, for smartphone and tablet users. Hopefully it will benefit them all.
