More than One Mahdi (Sunni Narrations)

More Than One Mahdi According to Sunni Ahadith

Ibn AlMunada in the Book of Daniel: “Sufyanis are three, the Mahdis are three, the first Sufyani will emerge, and if he emerges him being mentioned becomes popular, the first Mahdi emerges, and then the second Sufyani, and then the second Mahdi emerges, and then the third Sufyani will emerge, and then the third Mahdi will emerge, and so Allah will make better everything that was ruined before, and he will be rescuing the people of faith, and will make alive the Sunna, and extinguish the fire of innovation.”

- [Alarf AlWardi Syooti p.1/149 hadeeth#250]

Narrated from Hadab son of Khaled AlAzdi [who] narrated from Hamad son of Salma [who narrated] from Samak son of Harb who said: “I heard Jaber son of Samra say: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) saying: “Islam will remain at glory until 12 caliphates,” and then he said a word I did not understand. So I said to my father: “What did he say?” He said: “All of them are from Quraish.”

- [Saheeh Muslim v.3 p.1453]

Narrated from from Muhammad son of Abeed [who] narrated from Abu Usama [who narrated] from Za’eda [who narrated] from Samak [who narrated] from Sa’eed son of Jabeer [who narrated] from Ibn Abbas, he used to hear them say: “There will be 12 caliphates in this nation!” He said: “How foolish are you? After the 12 are three, from us is the Safah, Mansoor and the Mahdi.”

Abu Usama said: “This interpretation with us means that the son of the Mahdi is after him until the emergence of the Dajjal.”

- [Uyoon AlAkhbar for Ibn Qutayba p.302]

Umdat AlQaree Sharh Saheeh AlBukhari Author: Bader AlDeen AlAyni AlHanafi said: “It is possible in that there will be 12 after the Mahdi that will emerge in the end times…” until he says: “And then after him his son will rule, and so with that there will be 12 kings, each one of them is an Imam Mahdi.

And from Ka’ab AlAhbar: “There will be 12 Mahdis and then the Spirit of Allah will descend and kill the Dajjal.”

Tafseer Abi Hatem from Ka’ab AlAhbar he said: “They are 12, and when they all pass away, there will be 12 similar to them replacing them, and that is a promise from Allah to this nation.” And he read: “Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them. And that is the work of Bani Isra’el.”

- [2628 v.8 Ibn Abi Hatem AlRazi]

Fateh AlBari Sharh Saheeh AlBukhari for Ibn Hajar 20/266 #6682 From a long passage he said: Abu AlHussein son of AlMunadi: On the part where he collected about the Mahdi, it possible in the meaning of the hadeeth “There will be 12 caliphates” that this will happen after the Mahdi who will emerge in the end times, for I found in the book of Daniel, when the Mahdi dies, there will be 5 men ruling from the son of the oldest grandson, and then 5 from the son of the younger grandson, and then the last one will pass his leadership from the son of the oldest grandson, and then his son will rule, and12 kings will reign, each one of them is an Imam Mahdi.

Ibn AlMunadi said, and in the narration of Abi Saleh from Ib Abbas. The Mahdi’s name is Muhammad son of Abdullah and he is a man whose beard is dyed in red, the nation will be relieved by him from all the depressions, and his justice will eliminate all the unjustice, and then after him will be 12 men.

Fitan Ibn Hamad who is Sheikh AlBukhari (1/395) hadeeth#1186 narrated from Rashdeen from Ibn Lahee’a from Abi Qabeel from Abdullah son of Umro he said: “After the Mahdi that will take the people of Yemen to their cities, it is then the Mansoor, and then after him the Mahdi that will open the city of Rome by his hand.”

It was said by Abu AlHussein Bani AlMunada: “It is possible by the meaning of the hadeeth in that there will be 12 Caliphates after the Mahdi that will emerge in the end times, for I found in the book of Daniel that if the Mahdi dies, 5 men will rule from the oldesgt grandson and 5 from the younger grandson and then he will give successorship to the last one for the caliphate, a man from the son of the older grandson, so then he will rule after him a son and then 12 kings will rule each one of them is an Imam Mahdi.

- [Fateh Al Bari Sharh Saheeh AlBukhari v.13 p.181]

Book of Fitan of Ibn Hamad AlMaroozi and he is the Sheikh of Bukhari: 223 narrated from AlHakam son of Nafe’ [who narrated] from Jarah from Arta’a: “The Sufyani will kill all of those who disobeyed him and will cut them with saws, and cook them in pots, for 6 months, and so then he will meet up with the two easts and two wests with the number of caliphates after the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) for the nation.”

(In this case the number of caliphates which are 12)
