Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
of the birthday of our
Holy Al-Imam Muhammad
Al-Hujja Al-Mehdi (AS)
of Sha'ban 1434 Hijra [Monday, June 24, 2013].
(AS) was born on Friday, 15th of Sha'ban, 255 AH (1179 years ago)
(He was born in
Samarra' - Iraq, on July
29, 869 AD). This is a great day in the Islamic History]
Al-Imam Al-Mehdi (peace be upon him), whom is
the 12th Infallible Imam of the Shi'a and the 14th Infallible of Ahlul
Bait (peace be upon them), is still
alive, but in occultation. Al-Mehdi
(AS) has gone in occultation in the basement of his house in Samarra'
- Iraq in the year 329 AH (939 AD) and has not been seen since by
strangers while practicing daily duties of imamat from behind the
Innumerable traditions (Ahadith) in this context
, quoted right from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWA), from the
glowing contents of many books of Shi`ite scholars ( `ulama' ) existed
. Many Sunni scholars have accumulated these traditions in complete
volumes also, such as : Al-Bayan fi Akhbar Sahibi'z-Zaman
by Al-Hafiz Muhammad ibn Yusuf Ash-Shafi`i and as well as As-Sahih of
Abu Dawud and As-Sunan of Ibn Majah.
All of the above books record the traditions (Ahadith) bearing evidence
of the coming of this Holy Imam. The promised Al-Mehdi , who is
usually mentioned by his title of Imamu 'l-`Asr ( the Imam of the Period
) and Sahibu 'z-Zaman ( the Lord of the Age ), is the son of the
Eleventh Infallible Imam . His name is the same as that of the Holy
Prophet . He was born in Samarra', Iraq in 255 AH (869 AD) and until
260 AH (874 AD) 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`a were able to meet him . After the
martyrdom of his father he became Imam and by Divine Command went into
occultation ( Al-Ghaybah ) , Thereafter, he appeared only to his four
(4) deputies ( Nuwwabs ) and even then only in exceptional circumstances
The Imam chose as a special deputy for a time `Uthman ibn Sa'id Al-`Amri (Abu Amru) , one of
the companions of his father and grandfather who was his confident and
trusted friend . Through his deputy the Imam would answer the demands
and questions of the Shi`a . After `Uthman ibn Sa`id , his son Muhammad ibn `Uthman Al-`Amri (Abu Ja'far) was
appointed as the 2nd deputy of the Imam. After the death
of the 2nd deputy, Al-Husain ibn Ruh ibn
abi Bahr An-Nawbakhti (Abu 'l-Qasim) was chosen by
Al-Imam Al-Mehdi as his 3rd deputy. Al-Husain bin Ruh served about
22 years as deputy. After his death 'Ali
ibn Muhammad As-Samari (Abu 'l-Hasan) was appointed for this
important task . He was the 4th and last deputy of the Imam (AS).
A few days before the death of this last deputy, As-Samari, in
329 AH (939 AD) an order was issued by the Imam stating that in six
days `Ali ibn Muhammad As-Samari would die . Henceforth the special
deputation of the Imam would come to an end and the major occultation
( Al-Ghaybatu 'l-kubra ) would begin and would continue until the day
Allah (God) grants permission to the Imam to manifest himself .
The occultation of the Twelfth Imam Al-Mehdi (AS) is , therefore divided
into two parts :
1) the first , the minor occultation ( Al-Ghaybatu
's-sughra ) which began in
260 AH (874 AD) and ended in 329 AH (939 AD) , lasting about seventy
(70) years ;
2) the second , the major occultation ( Al-Ghaybatu
'l-kubra ) which commenced in 329 AH (939 AD) and will continue
as long as Allah (God) wills it . In a hadith (tradition) upon
whose authenticity everyone agrees , the Holy Prophet has said , "If
there were to remain in the life of the world but one day , Allah (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
with equity and justice as it was filled with oppression
and tyranny .''

The Holy Mausoleums of Imams Ali-Al-Hadi and Hasan-Al-Askari, Samarra, Baghdad, Iraq.
Destroyed due to explosion by criminal elements, February 2006. (12th, 13th).
Refer to the above red highlighted rows.
In The Name of Allah The Merciful, The Compassionate
On the morning of Wednesday February 22, 2006 (23 Muharram 1427H) a group
of criminals executed their elaborate plan to explode and destroy the
holy shrines of Imam Al-Hadi and Imam Al-Askari (blessing of Allah be
upon them) in city of Samarra, Iraq. These children of evil carried out
an unprecedented act of violence that has not yet been witnessed in the
history of Islam. Aimed directly toward the last Prophet of Allah (Peace
be upon him), this destructive explosion was intended to destroy the
golden shrine along with both graves. This Holy Mausoleum held two Imams,
both descendants and children of our Prophet Mohammed. Recent news
exposes more attacks on Holy sites such as Prophet's Companion Salman
Al-Farsi (blessing of Allah be upon him) and other places.
If the infallible Imams (the children of the holy prophet) and
Salman Al-Farsi are not Muslims, then who is?
Our sincere condolences on this sorrowful occasion to our 12th Imam Al-Mehdi
(may Allah hasten his reappearance). This holy shrine contains the holy
graves of his father Imam Al-Askari and his grandfather Imam Ali Al-Hadi
(peace be upon them).
Our Imam is coming soon. Sooner or later he will appear and no one can
run away or hide from the punishments. Iraq is his country and the country
of his father. The criminals who committed this act and anyone who
participated in the planning will be retaliated and brought to justice.
The occupier of Iraq should leave as this is the land of Al-Imam Al-Mehdi.
This is no place for democracy or the greed of George W. Bush. Democracy
has nothing to do with Islam from far and near. Any Muslim who believes
in democracy as the ideal is ignorant and / or a hypocrite. Democracy has
nothing to do with Islam and has no place in the Islamic system which is
written and overseen by God.
The people of Iraq and good people of any kind must use excessive force to
stop any further and future attack on any holy places. If force is not
used to stop and prevent these children of evils then Al-Kabe in Mecca
will be the next.
These attacks are nothing more than an extension of the cartoons created
in Denmark. As a joke it suggests an international ignorance that becomes
replicated in these physical acts of destruction. An apology is
unacceptable. Such cartoon characters are a deliberate act on all
religions. The humor displays a lack of humility and reflects upon a
depleted morale and degraded character. Jesus, Moses, David, Salamon,
Jacob, Abraham, and all other messengers of God (Peace of Allah be upon
all of them) are all Muslims. Muslim means acknowledgement that there
is one God. Being a Muslim is a relative issue. There are people who
claim they are Muslim but their actions do not reflect their beliefs.
On the other hand, there are people who are not Muslim yet behave as
if Islam is embedded within their character.
Islam is a source of morale, character, integrity, trust, love, knowledge,
courage, forgiveness, help, social justice, social life, and truth. The
enemies of Islam are the enemies of Jesus, Moses, Jacob, Abraham, etc…
They will never succeed in their plots. The enemies of Islam do not know the
true value of Islam for all society. It is like putting a piece of gold in
front of a donkey. What would a donkey understand of the value of gold?
All it knows is barley. Islam is gold for the people that understand it.
Al-Imam Al-Mehdi (ourselves to be sacrificed for him) is coming soon.
And Jesus (peace be upon him) will appear after him. Al-Imam will chop
the head of all criminals in the entire world. And will define the justice
for all and will end the corruption everywhere including in Iraq.
Therefore, all occupied forces in Iraq must leave unconditionally before it is too late.
It is the responsibility of all to protect the holy sites immediately.
The Muslim community and good people worldwide must and should form a
special protective force around such holy sites immediately and disregard
the occupation if forced against this unity. An immediate international
Islamic tribunal should be formed to punish anyone involved in this
religious destruction and be prosecuted without mercy (swift justice).
We cannot afford to watch our morale, principles, and religious rights
to be trampled on.
The merchants of religion (Whether they are $hites, $unnis, $alafies,
and any other group) will be punished harshly by Al-Imam Al-Mehdi as
soon as he appears because most of them are betraying the essential
principles of Islam.
Iraqi people do not need a corrupted foreign constitution. The permanent
constitution is there and has been for over 1400 years, namely the
There are three forces, United States, Great Britain, and Israel, making
the lives of people miserable worldwide in the name of freedom and
equality. In fact, they are thirsty for the blood of innocent people.
Leave Iraq immediately. This is the land of Al-Imam Al-Mehdi. If not,
you will be forced sooner or later by the force of Allah and Imam's
followers including Jesus (Peace be upon him). Per Islam, all people
are equal and free.
Undoubtedly, the criminals who committed the evil act will be punished
as the Holy Qur'an states (Holy Qur’an – 83:35&36 Al-Mutaffifeen):
"The Righteous on their raised couches will be able to see all the true
values restored in their own favour: but they will also see something
else: they will also see the arrogant braggarts brought low, who brought
about their own downfall by their own actions."
