again, on the same page of the afore-mentioned book, the author narrates from hassan-ibn-khalid who narrates from ali-ibn musa ridha as such: 'Allah shall erase from the earth every cruelty and oppression by the hands of my fourth son from my progeny who shall be the son of the greatest and the best slave-girls. he is the same one in whom the people doubt about his birth. he is the same one who shall go into concealment. when he emerges the earth shall be illuminated by the light of his lord....
once again, in the same book (on page 454) the author has narrated from ahmad-ibn-zaid who in turn has narrated from debel-ibn-ali khuza'ee who with regards to his own presence before imam ridha and recitation of one elegy ending in «--» narrates that imam ridha said:- 'the imam after me is my son muhammad and the imam after him will be his son ali. after him will follow hassan and after hassan shall come hujjat qaem the one for whom the people will await during his occultation and the one who will be obeyed during his reappearance. he will fill the earth with equity and justice just as it had been filled with cruelty and oppression. about his uprising, my father has narrated from my grand-fathers who in turn have narrated from the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) that: 'the example of (emergence of) Mahdi is like the example of qiyamat which shall occur all of a sudden.'
the author of the afore-said book (on page 488) has narrated from the book 'ghayat-ul-maram' which in turn has narrated from the book 'fare'ed-us-semtain' that jaber-ibn-abdullah ansari has quoted the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) as saying: 'Mahdi shall come from my progeny. his name and agnomen shall be the same as my name and agnomen. amongst all the people, he shall resemble me the most in appearance and character. there shall occur an occultation for him due to which nations shall deviate. Mahdi will emerge like a twinkling star and fill the earth with equity and justice to the reverse extent it had been filled with cruelty and oppression.
again on the same page of 'yanabi-ul-muwadda' he (i.e. shaikh qunduzi) narrates from 'fara'ed-us-semtain' from imam muhammad baqir from his grand-fathers from ali-ibn-abi talib that the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) said: 'Mahdi is from my progeny. there shall occur an occultation for him due to which nations shall deviate.... he shall fill the earth with equity and justice just as it had been filled with cruelty and oppression.
on page 493 of the same book he has narrated from the book 'manaqib' which in turn has narrated from imam muhammad baqir that the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said: 'blessed is the one who perceives the 'qaem' from my ahl-e-bayt and believes him to be the imam during his concealment (i.e. before his emergence) and befriends his friends and alienates his enemies. such a person shall be amongst my lovers and companions and they are the best of my people on the day of judgement.
the author of the same book narrates from abu baseer who narrates from imam jafar sadeq who narrates from his great grand-father who in turn narrates from amir-ul-mumineen that the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said: 'Mahdi is from my progeny. his name shall be the same as mine and his agnomen too shall be the same as my agnomen. amongst all the people he shall resemble me the most in appearance and character. there shall be an occultation for him due to which people will get deviated in their religion. then Mahdi will emerge like a twinkling star and will fill the earth with equity and justice just as it had been filled with cruelty and oppression.
in the same book, a similar tradition from abu baseer can be seen but with this difference: Mahdi shall emerge like a twinkling star and will bring along with himself the provisions of the prophet. (till the end).
the author of 'yanabi-ul-muwadda' (on page 494) has narrated from abu baseer who in turn has narrated from jabir-ibn-yazid ju'afi as such: i heard jabir-ibn-abdullah ansari saying: the holy prophet (s.a.w.a.) told me: 'o jabir! my legatees and the imams of the muslims after me are ali, hassan, hussein, ali-ibn-hussein, muhammad-ibn-ali, famous as baqir. o jabir! you shall meet him and when you do so send my greetings upon him. after baqir will come jafer-ibn-muhammad, musa-ibn-jafer, ali-ibn musa, muhammad-ibn-ali, ali-ibn-muhammad, hassan-ibn-ali and 'al-qaem' whose name and agnomen are the same as my name and agnomen. 'qaem' is the son of hassan-ibn-ali. Mahdi is the very person who shall gain victory over the east and west. Mahdi is the very person who will go into concealment from his companions views. no one shall remain firm in his imamat except for those whom Allah has tested their heartly faith.
