 “The remainder of Allah (His last proof) is good for you if you are among the


(Hud: 86)

The characteristics of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) are mentioned in the traditions of the infallible Imams (a.s.). We shall mention a few of them hereunder taking brevity into consideration:

Name : His name is the same as that of the Holy Prophet (s.a.).1

Titles : His titles are many and each one of them indicates towards a particular perfection and trait. The most famous undoubtedly is ‘Al-Mahdi’ which means the guided one. Another title “Baqiyatullah” means the last surviving proof of Allah. “Saahebul Amr” (master of the affairs) and “Saahebuz Zamaan” (master of the time) are also among his titles. Yet another epithet is “Qaim” implying the one who will rise. Treading the footsteps of Imam Ali Reza (a.s.), whenever this title is uttered, the Shias stand in their places and placing the right hand on the head, they pray for his reappearance.(Muntakhabul Athar, p. 506, H. 3)

Agnomen : Even his agnomen is similar to that of Allah’s Messenger (s.a.). His another famous agnomen is “Abu Saaleh”.2

Father : The eleventh Imam, Hasan al-Askari (a.s.). From the paternal side, Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is the ninth descendant of Imam Husain (a.s.) and from the side of Janab Fatima binte Hasan bin Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) [the mother of Imam Muhammad

Baqir (a.s.)], he is the descendant of Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba (a.s.).

Mother : Narjis Khatoon (a.s.). Her father was Yashu’a the son of the King of Rome, and her mother was the descendant of Janab Shim’oon (a.s.), the successor and companion of Hazrat Eesa (a.s.). The other names of Janab Narjis are also Sosan and Maleekah. When she was living in the palaceof the Roman King, she saw the Holy Prophet (s.a.) in a dream asking for her hand for his son

Imam Hasan al-Askari (a.s.) from her ancestors, Hazrat Eesa (a.s.) and Janab Shim’oon (a.s.).Hazrat Eesa (a.s.) is delighted at this proposal. The Holy Prophet (s.a.) commenced reciting the sermon after taking due permission from her ancestor, Janab Shim’oon (a.s.) and her marriage with Imam Hasan al-Askari (a.s.) occurred. In another dream, she accepts Islam at the hands of Hazrat Fatema Zahra (s.a.). In yet another dream, she saw a dream in which Imam Askari (a.s.) is advising her to wear the clothes of a slave-girl and participate in a war between the Romans and Muslims. This enabled her to enter the Muslim homeland along with the Roman army and when the latter was defeated, she was brought to Baghdad with other prisoners of war. Due to his unseen knowledge, Imam Ali Naqi (a.s.) was aware of all the developments. He dispatched his slave, Bishr bin Sulayman to Baghdad where on the beach of Euphrates river, prisoners of war were being sold. Imam (a.s.) narrated all the characteristics of Janab Narjis Khatoon (a.s.) to Bishr and gave him 220 silver coins along with a letter in Roman script. He advised her that if she does not agree initially, on seeing this letter she will definitely give her approval. Bishr went to that market. He recognised Janab Narjis Khatoon among the prisoners, gave her the letter of Imam Askari (a.s.) and brought her to Saamarra after handing over the bag of coins to her seller. Imam Ali Naqi (a.s.) said to his sister: O daughter of Allah’s Messenger, kindly take Narjis to your house and acquaint her with Islamic laws and manners. For, she will be the wife of my son Hasan (a.s.) and the mother of Mahdi (a.s.). (Behaarul Anwaar, vol. 51, p. 10, H. 12)

Thus, we see that Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is a descendant of two Prophets (a.s.) {the Holy Prophet (s.a.) and Hazrat Shim’oon (a.s.)} and two kings {the King of Iran, Yezdgard III, the maternal grandfather of Imam Zainul Aabedeen (a.s.) and the King of Rome, the paternal grandfather of Janab Narjis (a.s.)}.1

Characteristics : He is the twelfth Imam (a.s.) and the last proof of Allah. Like other divine proofs, he (a.s.) too is infallible. Barring the Holy Prophet (s.a.), he is superior to all other Prophets (a.s.), like his ancestors (a.s.). Perhaps this is the reason that Hazrat Eesa (a.s.) will pray behind Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.). May Allah increase our recognition of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) each day and give us the good

fortune of being included in his prayers.

Beginning Photography Tips
Make sure you have the correct film for what you're trying to do. For example, 400, a faster speed, is more suitable for action shots than 200. To become more of a photographer than a person snapping pictures, do some slightly different things with your composition. For example, try placing subjects off-center, using natural lines or frames, or taking the picture from a different angle.

A Poem Of His Arrival
All you mortal men out there,
Why are you living like you haven't a care.
With time so short and the stakes so high,
Why do you live like you'll never die.

With judges acting like they haven't a judge,
And superpowers like they're too strong to budge.
It won't be long before the time will come,
When our time for doing will be over and done.

But those of you who hear me and have struggled so long,
A new world is coming so try to be strong.
Live for each moment for from it springs,
A chance for hope and the comfort it brings.

And when all the world around you is falling apart,
Hold tight to the love you'll find in your heart.
When lies and deceit are all that you find,
The truth is no further than within your mind.

Let There Be Light
As this picture demonstrates, lighting can show the glory of the ordinary. For the best results, take pictures in the morning and evenings; the light at dawn and dusk brings depth and softness to objects and people.
