In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
Saaiduna Umm Salmah Radiallahu Ahu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said, “After the death of a ruler there will be some dispute between the people. At that time a citizen of Madina Munawarah will flee and go to Makkah Mukkaramah. While in Makkah Mukkaramah certain people will approach him between Hajr Aswad and Maqam Ibrahim, and forcefully pledge their allegiance to him. Thereafter a huge army will proceed from Syria to attack him but when they will be at Baida (which is between Makkah and Madina) and they will be swallowed into the ground. On seeing this, the Abdaals of Sham as well as large numbers of the people of Iraq will come to him and pledge their allegiance to him. Then a person from the Quraish, whose uncle will be from the Bani Kalb tribe, will send an army to attack him, only to be overpowered by the will of Allah. This army will be that of Bani Kalb. Unfortunate indeed is he who does not receive a share from the booty of Kalb. This person will distribute the spoils of war after the battle. He will lead the people according to the Sunnat and during his reign Islam will spread throughout the world. He will remain alive till seven years (since his emergence). He will pass away and the Muslims will perform his Janazah Salah.” (Sunan Abi Dawud p.240 v.2)
Saaiduna Abdullah Ibn Masood Radiallahu Anhu says that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said “This world will not come to an end until one person from my progeny does not rule over the Arabs, and his name will be the same as my name.” (Sunan Tirmizi p.47 v.2)
Saaiduna Abu Saeed Khudri Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam (regarding the rule of Imam Mahdi) said “the skies will rain down in abundance and the earth will yield forth its crops in abundance, and those alive will desire that those who have already passed away should have been alive to enjoy this prosperity.” (Mustadrak Hakim)
