Dedication

This book is dedicated to you 'o abul-qasim - muhammad-ibn-hassan-askari, 'o "baqia'tAllah" (Allah's remainder) on the earth and his proof over his servants.  I hope to be graced with your acceptance. In reality, the value of presentation is tantamount to the capacity of its giver.

In His Exalted Name

this (book) is a collection of a series of traditions which have been narrated from the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.), his progeny and companions - all taken from our sunni brethren sources. it also contains sayings and writings of sunni scholars about the awaited Mahdi who is from the progeny of muhammad (s.a.w.a.).

it is hoped that this book remains a means of my remembrance and a vision for others. i have arranged this book by bringing one preface, eight chapters and a conclusion. i ask Allah for its success and humbly request him who is the best of the helpers for his favour.

«the reason for writing this book
and the writer's style»

some of my learned friends joined me in a noble and scholarly gathering. discussions followed concerning the authencity of traditions until it took us to the subject of the 'awaited Mahdi' - a subject which we (the twelve imami'ah shias) believe and which constitutes one of the principles of religion.
