he replied: 'by (his) calmness and (his) dignity.
once again i asked: by what sign?
he replied: by recognizing the 'forbidden' and 'permissible' affairs and the need of the people towards him and his own needlessness from others.
on page 401, the author of«yanabi-ul-muwadda» narrates from the book of «durra-tul-ma'aref» as follows:
'Mahdi shall bring out from the cave of 'anthakia' the books and shall bring out from the lake of 'tabariah' the zaboor which contains all that the family of musa and haroon have left behind and which was carried. by the angels and contains the tablets (pieces of stone or wood on which divine matters have been written) and the cane of musa (a.s.). moreover Mahdi is superior to all the people in knowledge and insight.'(59)
in the afore-mentioned book, the author narrates from khawrazmi where the chain of transmission leads to abu jafar baqir (a.s.) who, while speaking, about Mahdi and his resemblance to the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) said: 'and he shall bring out all that the prophets have stored.'
the author of «eqdud-durar» narrates (in chapter 3, section 9) from abdullah-ibn-atha as such: 'i asked hazrat abu jafar (baqir) to inform me about 'qaem' and he replied:- 'i am not that 'qaem' and neither the one whom you have perambulated around. i asked him about Mahdi's behaviour and he replied: 'just as the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) used to behave.'
