There is no direct reference to the Mahdi in the Quran only in the hadith the reports and traditions of Muhammad ‘s teachings collected after his death. Throughout history, various individuals have claimed to be the Mahdi. Twelver Shia believe the Mahdi is Muhammad al-Mahdi. The term mahdi does amjuman occur in the Quran. It is derived from the Arabic root h-d-y Arabic: The term al-Mahdi was employed from the beginning of Islam, but only as an honorific epithet and without any messianic significance.
Among the Umayyads, Sulayman encouraged the belief that he was the Mahdi, and other Umayyad rulers, like Umar IIhave been addressed as such in the panegyrics of Jarir and al-Farazdaq.
Early discussions about the identity of al-Mahdi by religious scholars can be traced back to the time after the Second Fitna. These discussions developed in different directions and were influenced by traditions hadiths attributed to Muhammad. Muslum Umayyad times, scholars and traditionists not only differed on which caliph or rebel leader should be designated as Mahdi, but also on whether the Mahdi is a messianic figure and if signs and predictions of his time have been satisfied. Evidence shows that the first Abbasid caliph As-Saffah assumed the title of “the Mahdi” for himself.
In Shia Islamit seems likely that the attribution of messianic qualities to the Mahdi originated from two of the groups supporting al-Hanafiyyah: They became known as Kaysanitesand introduced what later became two key aspects of the Shia’s concept of the Mahdi.
The first was the notion of return of the dead, particularly of the Mhslim. The second was that after al-Hanafiyyah’s death they believed he was, in fact, in hiding in the Razwa mountains near Medina.
This later developed into the doctrine known as the Occultation. During the 10th century, based on these earlier beliefs, the doctrine of Mahdism was extensively expanded by Al-KulayniIbrahim al-Qummi and Ibn Babawayh.
The Mahdi became synonymous with the “Hidden Imam” who was thought to be in occultation awaiting the time that God has ordered for his return. This return is envisaged as occurring shortly before the final Day of judgment. Some historians suggest that the term itself was probably introduced into Islam by southern Arabian tribes muslum had settled in Syria in the mid-7th century.
They believed that the Mahdi would lead them back to their homeland and reestablish the Himyarite kingdom. They also believed that he would eventually conquer Constantinople.
Since Sunnism has no established doctrine of Mahdi, compositions of Mahdi varies among Sunni scholars. Sunnis do, however, rely on traditionally canonical collections of narrations for derivations of the Mahdi’s attributes and lineage.
The Mahdi will be of my family, of the descendants of Fatimah. In heavy contrast with Shia Islam, Sunnis have a much more human view of the Mahdi, who they believe will be nothing less than the most rightly guided Muslim of his time.
He will be rectified in a single night which is taken to mean that the provisions for his leadership and rule will be made in a single night. According to Sunan Ibn Majah, one of the six canonical collections of Hadith, narrated by ‘Ali, “Mahdi is one of us, the annuman of the Household.

Allah will rectify him in a single night. Sunnis believe he will rise and be recognized by his continued philanthropy, charity, piety, facial features, name, and sense of justice, not through direct divine intervention. It is hadit unreasonable to suspect, based on these narrations, that the Mahdi may not be known to the people immediately, even after being born and living for quite some time without hukhari title of Mahdi hence, being rectified by God. The Mahdi will be of my stock, and will have a broad forehead [and] a prominent nose.
He will fill the earth with equity and justice ofg it was filled with oppression and tyranny, and he will rule for seven years. The Mahdi is frequently mentioned in Sunni hadith as establishing the caliphate. Among Sunnis, some believe the Mahdi will be an ordinary man.
The following Sunni hadith make references to the Mahdi:. His name hadiith be my name, and his father’s name my father’s name . Even sahhi the entire duration of the world’s existence has already been exhausted and only one day is left before Musliim, Allah will expand that day to such length of time as to accommodate the kingdom of a person from my Ahlul-Bayt who will be called by my name.
He will fill out the earth with peace and justice as it will have been full of injustice and tyranny by then. His [the Mahdi’s] aim is to establish a moral system from bihhar all superstitious faiths have been eliminated.
In the same way that students enter Islam, so unbelievers will come to believe. When the Mahdi appears, Allah will cause such power of vision and hearing to be manifested in believers that the Mahdi will call to the whole world from where he is, with no postman involved, and they will hear and even see him.
The Messenger of Allah said: He will fill the earth with fairness and justice as it was filled with oppression and injustice, and he will rule for seven years. Allah will grant him rain, the earth will bring forth its fruits, he will give a lot of money, cattle will increase and the ummah will become biar. He will rule sahin seven or eight years.

Then, the anju,an of Heaven and the dweller of the Earth will be pleased with him. Besides these, the coming of the Mahdi and that of Jesus from the heavens are also regarded as signs of the Day of Judgment.
I have not mentioned them. The reason is that the narratives of the coming of the Mahdi do not conform to the standards of hadith criticism set forth by the muhaddithun. Some of them are weak and some fabricated; no doubt, some narratives, which bihr acceptable with shih to their chain of narration, inform us of the coming of a generous caliph ; Muslim, No: This prediction of the Prophet has thus materialized in his personality, word for word.
One need anjunan wait for any other Mahdi now. Ahmed Hulusi interpreted the Mahdi as a part of the inner self. Therefore, the Mahdi awakes in a person to defeat the inner Dajjal.

According to some interpretations of the Quran, throughout the history of human life, the earth has never been without divine leaders and Allah has selected an appropriate man for every nation. There are two types of Quranic verses which one can find out the existence of Imam Mahdi and advent of him.
Imam Sadiq has said in this regard: Shia strongly believe that the prolonged lifespan of Mahdi is thoroughly justified according to rational, Quranic, traditional, research-based and historical accounts.
In this regard, some reasons will be expressed: In this verse, Prophet Noah invited his people to God for years. Some Hadiths say that he lived for years. This verse states that the People of the Cave lived for years asleep in the cave.
