Shia’s 12th Imam: The Dajjal

The Shias have always been, since time immemorial, one of the most bizarre followers of disbelief that existed, who have always attributed themselves upon the religion of Islaam. They have cultured their religion upon the notion that they are the best of all creations and also the fact that they have thought to believe that the Imam Mahdi was upon them. The 12th Imam, considered to be the Imam Mahdi by many Shias is a total deceptive idea they have been injecting their followers since they have started their faith. The Shia Hadith in Al-Kafi – considered to be the most reliable of the four Shia books of Shia Hadeeth – states the following in regards to the 12th Imam.

(note that this is their belief of the 12th Imam and they falsely claim to be Imam Mahdi)

Ali bin Ibraheem narrated from his father, from Ibn Abi Umayr from Mansuwr, from Fadl al-Awr, from Abi Ubaidah that:
                “When the Qaem of the household of the Prophet appears, he will rule according to rule of David and Solomon”.

Muhammad bin Yahya from Ahmad bin Muhammad, from Muhammad bin Sinaan-Abaan reported:
                “I heard Abu Abdullah (as) saying: ‘The world will not fade away unless a person from us appears who will rule according to the rule of the family of David”.

Ahmad bin Mahran (ra) from Muhammad bin Ali from Ibn Mahboob from Hishaam bin Salim from Ammar as Sabaati reported:
                “I asked Imam Abu Abdullah (as): ‘By what will you rule?’; He replied: ‘By the rule of God, and by the rule of David”.

Furthermore, the 12th Imam which the shias consider to be the Mahdi will also speak in Hebrew:

                Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Sa’eed al Uqdah said: Ali bin al-Hasan at-Taymali said: al-Hassan and Muhammad, the sons of Ali bin Yusuf from Sa’daan bin Muslim, from rajaal, from Al-Mufadhaal bin Umar said: Abu Abdullaah (as) reported:
“When the Imam Mahdi calls out, he will supplicate to God in Hebrew”. (al-Ghaybaa of an-Numani, p.326)

And the Shias also proclaimed that the Jews will also be among the followers of Imam Mahdi:

                Sheikh al-Mufeed reported in his al-Irshaad from al-Mufadhaal bin Umar that Imam Abu Abdullaah (as) reported that:
“There will appear along with Imam Mahdi…people from the tribe of Moses”. (al-Irshaad of al-Mufeed at-Tusi p. 402)

According to Shia Hadith in Al-Kafi, the Hidden Imam learns from a book called al-Jafr, which contains the knowledge from the Israelites:

                “The Imams (as) remained silent for a while and then said, ‘With us there is al-Jafr (the parchment). What do they know what al-Jafr is?’ I then asked, ‘What is al-Jafr (the parchment or a container)?’ The Imams (as) said, ‘It is a container made of skin that contains the knowledge of the prophets and the executors of their wills and the knowledge of the scholars in the past from the Israelites.” (al-Kafi, Hadith 635, Ch. 40)

In other words, there are 4 possible points that are present here in their belief of the Imam Mahdi or known to be the 12th Imam.

  1. He will rule according to the system of the family of David using the Talmud.
  2. His language will be Hebrew.
  3. His followers will be from the Jews and Israelites, thus the king of the Jews.
  4. He will learn from the Talmud which is contained in the “al-Jafr”.

With these four different points that we could gather from the Shia belief of the 12th Imam (Imam Mahdi), we should try to distinguish how does these points compare to the belief of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.

From the Musnad of Imam Ahmad 5099, it was said that the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) said in a hadeeth that Allaah will grant the Muslims victory over Dajjal and will kill him along with his shia (followers). When the shia (followers) of Dajjal will hide behind a tree or stone, then the tree and the stone will say to the Muslim that there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Try to check the hadeeth for yourself, it actually uses the word “shia” to describe the followers of Dajjal.

Anas bin Malik reported that Allaah’s Messger (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) said: “The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls”. (Sahih Muslim 2944).

The said hadeeth above describes the fact it was not Imam Mahdi (or the 12th Imam) who will have Jewish followers but Dajjal and they will have Persian Shawls and the present day Iran was once the former land called Persia.

And also in the Sunan of Abi Dawod 4072, the Prophet  (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) said:“To every Ummah there is a magian and the magian of this ummah are those who reject the Qadr (pre-destination). If anyone amongst them dies, do not attend their funeral, and if anyone amongst them becomes sik, don’t visit them and they are shiatul dajjal…”

The Shia have always described the 12th Imam (Imam Mahdi) to be locked up or hidden somewhere and will only be showing himself until the right time has come. This belief does really sound familiar to the stand of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah, but it wasn’t Imam Mahdi who is locked up and hidden. In the narration reported from Sahih Bukhari coming from Tamim ad-Darri, the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) has promised that the Jewish Dajjal will also be locked away somewhere and hidden from the world.

Therefore, it is somewhat safe to conclude, as the texts suggests that the 12th Imam of the Shia belief is actually a typical description of the Dajjal. That is how their books suggest it to be.

    Shia do believe in Allah as the sole Almighty, and Prophet(Peace be upon him) as the last prophet. I don’t think you people can despise them or call them kafir like you can to actual non- muslims. In the present world we Sunnis are acting worse than Shias any ways. Hezbollah and Assad both try to help Palestine, Ahmedinejad strongly oppose Israel, Palestine are Sunni, what are the Arab sunnis doing? Right now US and Israel ate using Sunnis to make Assad weak. Sunnis are king of hipocrites now. Except Erdogan, all sunni leaders are worshipping the west. The Arabs sunnis are so rich, the can spend trillions for FIFA WC, why can’t they help Palesine? The Indian(Pakistan, Bangladesh) or Malayan(Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei) Sunni countries never raise their voice against Israel, why? These arabs never speak against Israel either.
    Why? Why? Why?

      It saddens me that you talk more than learn.
      Instead of knowing the value of i’tiqad you resort to dwelling on societal issues. This is amongst the influence of marxism. Not the influence of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم

  2. Mohasin says:

    Marxism?and Not the influence of Prophet Muhammad (s.w.a.s)???
    Who first developed Marxism in the world… The Marxism is developed by some Muslims immediately after the Prophet (s.w.a.s) passed away from this world.

    Lets talk rationally and with an open mind….From my knowledge I dont think someone has ever argued for Islam on this forum.
    It even Saddens me that you people never care about societal issues. If there is no Justice among the Muslims itself then why you are following the Quran and Prophet ? The thing Allah loves is Tawhid ( oneness ) and Adl (Justice) . Allah (s.w.t) Stresses the word “Justice” so many times in the Quran (4:135) . And you are talking about i’tiqad (faith) of me.
    I will tell you one thing, the Faith (i’tiqad) lies on the level of justice you have done, If there is no justice then there is no faith.
    From the above comment, you are not at all bothering about our fellow sunni brothers who are struggling and dying in palestain. It is more like you wahabis (I am sure you are Wahabi- who is replying me ) are all supporting to Israielies and Americans.

  3. ibnnasser says:

    You don’t even understand what I’tiqad means and you wish to argue already?
    No wonder you resort to this so-called ‘societal issues’ with which are mere by-products of the lost of correct aqeedah and manhaj.

  4. Mohasin says:

    I don’t bother about i’tiqad, whether i know i’tiqad or not but we people know about Humanity and we always oppress the oppressor and I am proud of myself to be the follower of Ali (a.s) and also to be a Shia of Ali a.s. Anyhow you wahabis don’t have any Humanity when considering societal issues, so you are in the path of evil (shaitan) .

    • ibnnasser says:

      You don’t bother about I’tiqad?
      Wallaahil azeem! You are indeed lost!
      Anyone who does not have a firm understanding of I’tiqad does not value the essence of tawheed. No wonder you destroy the purity of shahadah with different acts of shirk and kufr.

      • Mohasin says:

        Shirk and Kufr are evolving because of you people.
        By not ensuing the hadiths of prophet Mohammed s.w.a.s you people are developing Kufr.
        “The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘Whoever does not feel any concern about the affairs of Muslims is not a Muslim anymore.’”

        According to this Hadeeth who is Kaafir? Unquestionably your community!
        Without knowing the pain of other muslims what belief did you achieve and I surprised how did you comprehend Tawheed and ALLAH.
        First of all to be a Human and try to understand agony of other people.
        Dont show contrary nature while replying. Please review the first thread of this response and do some research and reply.

      • ibnnasser says:

        That is the main reason why “our people” (as you address it) rectifies the haqq from the baatil of “your people”. For truly the issue of aqeedah is the main reason why “you people” are continuously under the flagship of misguidance.

  5. Mohasin says:

    As everybody knows there are More Sunni’s than shia’s in Palestine (75% are predominantly Sunni Muslims), What Haqq your people( community ) are rectifying from that innocent people without helping them?
    I am wondering how you are all in the state of ignorance!

    • ibnnasser says:

      You speak statistics as if you are working a international survey committee. 🙂

      That’s funny coz palestine is way more closer to Iran. What did your government do to the so-called 25% shias there?

      Irrelevant argument.

      • Mohasin says:

        Where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise.

        It seems you are illiterate Or you don’t have any knowledge of universe and social issues. Palestine is more closer to Iran?

  6. ibnnasser says:

    Yaah Mohasin! Have you not encounter a figure of speech?
    Anyhow, such going around the main issue should not come into a definite conclusion.
    The main point here is, the essence of tawheed, something that is ignored by the shias.
    The plight of Isarel and the Palestine people, what do you wish to do? Send armies? Jet planes? Okay, why have you not done anything for your so-called shias there?
    The ahlus sunnah wal jama’ah reflect upon the life of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم , when the family of Yasir were killed within the sight of the Rasul صلى الله عليه وسلم , did he go to demonstrations, rallies, or formed an army for retaliation? Reflect oh Mohasin who among us is illiterate and who follows the life and teaching of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم .

    • Mohasin says:

      We have doctrine of Oneness of God i.e Allah.
      How can you tell that Shia’s ignore Tawheed ?.

      If you are not illiterate then you know the best thing that Prophet Mohammed (s) migrated to Medina because of fear of those Kafir in Mecca ( At the time of early Islam).
      Which causes lose of life and property of Muslims.
      Coming to the point of Yasir, At that time there are only Handful of Muslims who took up the Islam. Those Muslims can’t do protest or rallies because they are in the state of religious dissimulation (Taqiyya).
      Those Muslims could also have feel same torture which Yasir had, If they came out with protests or rallies against the killers of Yasir.

      I am not pointing you ibnnasser, but I am pointing whole sunnies and sunni government’s who are not doing any help to partially neighboring country Plaestine of Saudi Arabia.
      You pointed me whether I wish to you send armies, Jet fighters against Israel. Here nobody cares whether I wish or not, That sunni people and sunni government should intend to help.
      Coming to shia government, Surely we people are doing appropriate help to Palestine people. If you ever care about the social issues besides religious you could have come accross Al-Quds day which shia’s people protests against Israel.

      If you took Prophet Mohammed(s) teachings in a wrong way then you are foolish being literate.

      • ibnnasser says:

        Again you argue without evidences. Result to an assumption that you practice tawheed yet go to process of waseelah. Now you mention taqiyyah, something that you and your people practice evidently such that in many of your books you consider it obligatory in part of faith.

        As for thr context of social issues, there are many ahadeeth that should be reconned with, however, you would not appreciate ahadeeth simply because shias have no genuine verification of one.
