Published by Ansariyan Publications

To know the Imam of The Time is one of the Prophetic injunctions to all mankind accepted unanimously across the different schools of thought. Imam Mahdi AFS, The Twelfth Imam after The Prophet SAWW , is our Imam of the Time. Allamah Majlisi's book is divided into 25 chapters with prefatory matter and appendices that take the reader through from the Imam AS' birth, lineage, names, titles and ahadith foretelling his birth and advent to the period of his ghaibah, both the short (al-ghybah al-sughra) and long (al-ghaybah al-kubra), his deputies (emissaries) reappearance and rule, impostors who laid claim to being the emissaries and gateways to the Imam AS, the holy letter from The Imam AS about Muhammad Ibn 'Ali al-Shalmaghani's blasphemous claims and falsehood. The translator has incorporated the original Arabic narrations that are culled from a wide variety of sources, inter alia, Nahjul Balaghah, Al-Kafi, Al-Ghaiba of Sheikh Tusi, Ikmal al-Din, Al- Ghaibah of Al-Nu'mani rendering the book rich in its content. Being a collection from different prominent Shi’i and Sunni sources about Imam Mahdi, this book is really a useful source for those who intend to learn about Imam Mahdi, either Shi’i or non-Shi’i.
