An excerpt from the book The Successor and Messenger of Imam Al-Mahdi in the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran.
This book contains a number of questions sent via the Internet from a Christian woman to Sayyed Ahmad Al-Hassan, and his answers to these questions.
We published these questions and answers believing by doing so, there is great benefit. Many of the questions sent via the Internet, answered by Sayyed Ahmad Al-Hassan, successor and messenger of Imam Al-Mahdi pbuh will be published as well, God Willing.
- He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have inspired to you, and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus - to establish the religion and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with Allah is that to which you invite them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back [to Him].
God chooses the messengers pbut and guides to the messengers pbut whoever turns back to Him and fights the “I”, and kills himself to draw closer to Allah swt. So in the amount of the “I” existent within the human self, the human being delays in guidance to the truth and recognition of the messenger.
In the dua from Imam Al-Mahdi pbuh,
And how will he know Allah, he who does not kill himself? How does Allah allow knowledge to be given to the one whose self is afflicted by the disease of Iblis (Allah curse him)?
- He said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" [Iblis] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay."
Sayyed Ahmad Al-Hassan
Successor and Messenger of Imam Al-Mahdi
May Allah empower him in earth
Question 1: In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. What are the contents and purposes of your message?
A Christian Woman/2005
Answer 1: Jesus pbuh said, "The Son of Adam shall not live by bread alone, but rather by the word of Allah."
And I, servant of Allah, say to you: By bread, the son of Adam dies, and with the word of Allah, he lives.
My message is like the message of Noah pbuh, Abraham pbuh, Moses pbuh, Jesus pbuh and Muhammad pbuhap, [which is] to spread monotheism in each spot on this earth. The purpose of the prophets and successors is my own purpose and to clarify the Torah, the Bible and the Quran, and whatever you have disagreed upon, and to explain the deviation of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim clerics and their abandonment of the Divine jurisprudence, and their violation of the commandments of the prophets pbut.
My will is the will of Allah swt and His desire, for the people of the earth to want nothing but what Allah swt wants; for the earth to be filled with justice and fairness, just as it has been filled with tyranny and oppression; for the hungry to be fed and for the poor not to stay without shelter; for the orphans to find joy after their prolonged sadness, to feed the hungry and shelter the poor; to bring joy to orphans after their prolonged sadness; for the widows to find what fulfills their financial need with dignity and integrity; for... for... and for the most important matter in the jurisprudence to be applied; justice, mercy and honesty.
I hope that you clarify to me your belief in Jesus son of Mary pbut with all honesty, and that you support your belief with verses from the Bible in order for me to be able to clarify the truth for you and for whoever seeks the truth and fears the minor and major judgement days, and fears the promise, and fears Allah swt.
Question 2: In the name of the Father. How do you say that the prophet Jesus appears at the end of time, and prays behind the person whom you say is not a prophet, and is called "Muhammad Al-Mahdi?" Is this not strange? How is a prophet praying behind a man who is not a prophet?
A Christian Woman/2005
Answer 2: Sister, the praying of the prophet of Allah, Jesus son of Mary pbut, behind Imam Al-Mahdi pbuh tolerates two matters [possibilities]:
First, that Imam Al-Mahdi pbuh is greater than the prophet of Allah Jesus pbuh. And Of course, Imam Al-Mahdi pbuh is not better unless he has the rank of prophecy, and in this situation there is no place for the problem which you mentioned.
And even if I did believe in the aforementioned, I will mention the second possibility and respond to it.
Second, that Jesus pbuh is better than Al-Mahdi pbuh, and in this case, the problem which you have mentioned will arise in the area of seeking truth and righteousness.
The answer is present in the Torah and Bible, or the Old and New Testaments, and it is also present in the Quran.
From the Torah (or the Old Testament), I choose for you the story of Saul (or Taloot) and David pbut. David pbuh is a prophet from the prophets of Allah and is better than Taloot. However, at the beginning, David was a soldier in the army of Taloot pbuh, and he worked by Taloot’s command, and was a follower of his because Taloot pbuh (or Saul) was a king assigned by the command of Allah swt. So David pbuh killed Jaloot (or Goliath) (Allah curse him) during the time in which David pbuh was a soldier from Taloot’s soldiers. Read 1st Samuel Chapter 17 in the Torah, and the story of Taloot in the Holy Quran.
As for the Bible (or the New Testament), I choose for you the story of Jesus pbuh, and Yahya pbuh (or John). Jesus pbuh is better than John pbuh, however, Jesus pbuh came to be baptized by John pbuh, even though this matter represents sanctification, purification and chastening. And in this rank, John pbuh represented the Proof (hujjat) of Allah upon Jesus.
Chapter three of Matthew states,
- Jesus left Galilee and went to the Jordan River to be baptized by John.
- But John stopped him saying, "I ought to be baptized by you. Why have you come to me?"
- Jesus answered, "For now this is how it should be, because we must do all that God wants us to do." Then John agreed.
- So Jesus was baptized. And as soon as he came out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down on him like a dove.
In both cases, David and Jesus pbut were better than John and Saul pbut.
Praise be to Allah alone.
