Question No.7:           Give the Islamic point of view concerning the appearance of Mehdi and Christ and the end of ‘Dajjal’. Also negate the deception caused by the Qadianies in this connection?

Answer :           Mehdi Alaih-i-Rizwan

               Certain signs have been described about Mehdi (Alaih-i-Rizwan) in Ahadith. There are as follows:

(1)                          He will be from the lineage of Hazrat Fatima Razi Allah-o-Anha

(2)                          He will be bear in Madina

(3)                          His father’s name will be Abdullah.

(7)                          When he reaches ‘Jama’ mosque in Damascuss, Christ will descend

(8)                          After his descend Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam will say his first prayer behind Mehdi (AR).

(9)                          He will live for 49 years. After 40 year, he will become ‘Khalifa’. He will remain ‘Khalifa’ for 7 years. For two years, he will live as a follower of Christ. He will die at the age of 49.

(10)                     After his death, the Muslims will say his funeral prayer. The ‘Ahadith’ does not explain his burial place, However, some have written that ‘Baitul Maqdas’ will be his burial place.

The descend of Isa Alaih-i-Salam

(1)                          Christ is God’s apostle and Messenger. Before his lifting to heavens, he led his life humbly.

(2)                          when the Jews were planning his murder, God saved him from the cruelties of the Jews and lifting him alive towards heavens.

(3)                          Near the time of the day of Judgement, he will appear with his hands on two angels.

(7)                          He will be a just ruler. He will spread Islam in the whole world.

(8)                          He will kill ‘Dajjal’ in Lud.

(9)                          After his descend he will live for 45 years.

(10)                     He will die in Madina and will be buried in the Holy Shrine near the greaves of Hazrat Muhammad SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam, Hazrat Abu Bakr (Razi Allah-o-Anho) and Hazrat Umer (Razi Allah-o-Anho). Even today the place of the fourth grave is lying vacant.


(1)                          According to Islamic teachings and Ahadith, Dajjal is the name of a particular person: All the Prophets have warned their followers against him. All the Prophets have consensus of opinion regarding his mischieves and enmity with God

(2)                          He will appear from a place in the mei of Iraq and Syria.

(3)                          There will be much mischieves and disturbance in the world.

(5)                          He will be one-eyed

(7)                          Most of his followers will be the Jews

(8)                          Seventy thousand Jews will be in his army.

(9)                          He will be killed in Lud by Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam.

(10)                     He will be killed with Hazrat Isa’s Alaih-i-Salamweapon or implement.

          The Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam has narrated almost one hundred and eighty signs of Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam and Hazrat Mehdi (Alaih-i-Rizwan). Continuity of Ahadith prove their appearance. Allama Shakani (Rahmatullah Alaih) writes in this connection:

               “It is proved now that the Ahadith concerning the expected Mehdi are ‘Matwater’ and the Ahadith concerning Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam are also ‘Matwater.”

                        And Hafiz Asqalani (Rahmatullah Alaih) has written in Manaqeb Shafe that ‘Matwater Ahadith’ appear regarding this that Mehdi will be from this Ummah and that Isa Alaih-i-Salam will say prayer behind Mehdi (Alaih-i-Rizwan). Abu Al Hasan Khase has mentioned this to nullify the Hadith to which Ibne Maja has quoted with reference to Hazrat Ans (Razi Allah-o-Anho), which says that Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam himself will be Mehdi.”

(Fathal Bari, v.6, p.358)

               One of the Ahadith to which Hafiz Asqalani (Rahmatullah Alaih) has referred to is as follows: “Hazrat Jabar Abdullah (Razi Allah-o-Anho) relates that he heard God’s Messenger SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam saying that “there will always be a group in my Ummah that will fight against the evil and will overcome the enemies. After it the Holy Prophet said, ‘In the end Christ, the son of Mary, will descend. (At the time of the prayer) the leader of the Muslims will ask him for leading the prayer. He will say that he cannot do so because it is God’s special blessing to this Ummah that every person of the Ummah is ‘Imam’ and leader for the other”

               The Hadith proves that Mahdi (Alaih-i-Rizwan) and Christ will be two different personalities. The Hadith also proves God’s special blessing to this Ummah that even near the time of the day of Judgement there will be holymen and Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam, God’s Messenger, will say prayer behind the man from this Ummah. It shows that group, among the Muslims, will always remain piety. The same thing happened earlier when the Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam was suffering from mortal disease, He SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam said prayer behind Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (Razi Allah-o-Anho). So, by saying prayer for one time He SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam gave the example that after him Hazrat Abu Bakr (Razi Allah-o-Anho) had the ability to become leader, ‘Imam’ or ‘Khalifa’.

               Mirza Qadiani himself accepts that Christ, Mehdi and Dajjal, the cursed, are three persons:

               “So, I had to accept that the promised Christ, Mehdi and Dajjad will appear in the East.” (Tohfa Goledia, p.47. Khazain, v.17, p.16)

The Qadiani point of view

               The Qadianies are deprived of faith. They believe that Christ and Mehdi are the one and the same personality, and that is Mirza Qadiani. The fact is that these two are two different personalities. Their names, work, place of birth, place of appearance. Duration of stay, age etc. can be traced in Ahadith. But the Qadianies did not pay heed to hundreds of such ‘Sahey’ Ahadith. Instead they are trying to prove their false faith with the help of a false and concocted traditions. Mirza said:

      (Khutba Ilhamia; Khazain, v.16, p.61) “O people! I am the ‘Messiah in Muhammad’a SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam Ummah and I am Ahmed Mehdi.”

Qazi Muhammad Nazeer Qadiani writes: “I am Mehdi and the promised Christ are the one and the same personality.”  (Imam Mehdi Ka Zahor, p.16)

A misconception:

               The Qadianies present tradition from Ibn-e-Majja as on argument.                (Ibn-e-Majja, p.292)

“There is no Mehdi except the Christ, son of Mary.”

Qazi Muhammad Nazeer writes about the Hadith:

“The Hadith has made it clear that only Christ, the son of Mary, is Mehdi and that there is no Mehdi except him.”

               The Hadith is poor. Moreover, it has not the meaning as is understood by the Qadianies. Mulla Ali Qari (Rahmatullah Alaih) says:

“The Hadith,    is ‘Zaeef’ (poor) by the common consensus of the ‘Muhadeseen’. Ibn Jerry has explained it. Moreover, it belongs to the category of   (Marfatah, v.10, p.183)

               so it is wrong to think that Mehdi and Christ are one personality. Mirza Qadiani himself gives a principle:

               “When almost all the ‘Ahadith’ are in keeping with the Holy Quran…… if exceptionally a Hadith is contrary to the clear verses of the Holy Quran, we will either exclude the Hadith or there will be need to reinterpret it. It is impossible to have a ‘Zaeef’ Hadith and ignore the clear verses of the Quran (to destroy the whole building made of clear verses of the Holy Quran and Ahadith.”     (Azala Oham, pp.225, 226)

               Keeping in mind this principle, the tradition in Ibn Maja has no importance. ‘Sahey Matwatra Ahadith’ make it clear that Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam will descend from sky or heaven and not that he will take birth in the world. While about Mehdi (Alaih-i-Rizwan) Ahadith say:


(Abu Dawood, v.2, p.131)

“The Holy Prophet said: ‘Mehdi will be from my progeny, i.e. from the lineage of Fatima Razi Allah-o-Anha”


   (Abu Dawood , v.2, p.)

        “His name will be similar to that of mine and his father’s name will be similar to that of my father”

And the following Hadith made the matter clear

(Mishqat, p.573)

“How can the Ummah fall that has me (Hazrat Muhammad SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam in the beginning, Mehdi in the middle and Christ in the end.” It is strange that the Qadianies could not see so much clear cut Ahadith. Their point of view is based solely on falsehood. There are separate traditions concerning the two personalities but they are blind to these traditions.


               About Dajjal they continuously change their opinion. In the beginning Mirza Qadiani said that Dajjal would be a ‘padri’ (Priest). Objection arose on it. A tradition is presented as an objection. ‘Hazrat Aisha Razi Allah-o-Anha relates that once she was weeping and the Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam came at that time. He SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam asked the cause of weeping. She said that you gave details of Dajjal and I was worried. Now when the details come in my mind, I began to weep. The Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam said ‘If he comes during my life time, you need not fear. If he comes after me, then the person who recites the last verses of Sura Kahaf will remain safe from his evils.”

1-           The priests were present in Holy Prophet’s SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam time. But the Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam did not mention it.

2-           Then Mirza said that Dajjal stands for the British people. He was asked that if the British are Dajjal and the Dajjad will be killed by Christ while you are planted by the British.’

3-           After it, Mirza said that Dajjad stands for Russia. When he was told that Dajjad was the name of an individual, he said, that the word that appear in Ahadith is not ‘Dajjal’ but ‘Rijal’ this is a proof of his ignorance. When Hazrat Umer (Razi Allah-o-Anho) asked for the permission to kill Ibn Saeyad, the Holy Prophet SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam said that if he is the same (Dajjal) then you cannot kill him because only Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam will kill him.’ This shows that Dajjal stands for an individual man. Moreover, it also proves that Dajjal will be murdered with a sword and not with pen, as the Qadianies say.
