Does Muhammad Qasim Claim to be Imam Mahdi?
Muhammad Qasim does not claim to be Imam Mahdi or a Prophet (Nauzobillah). Muhammad Qasim is a simple Muslim man who is proud to be an ummati (follower) of Khatimun Nabiyeen Prophet Muhammad SAW. Muhammad Qasim is blessed to have seen Divine Dreams about the future of Muslim ummah, and the events leading up to end of the world (Qiyamah). Muhammad Qasim has seen these dreams regularly since the age of 17, approximately year 1993 onwards. In 2014, he was instructed in his dream by Prophet Muhammad SAW to share his dreams with the world and Muslim ummah. From this time onwards, he has shared his dreams online on numerous social media platforms and with ullamas, scholars and politicians.
Why are people calling Muhammad Qasim the awaited Imam Al-Mahdi
Muhammad Qasim does not endorse people or community to refer him as Imam Al-Mahdi or Imam Mahdi. He only shares his dreams for the love of Allah and Prophet Muhammad SAW. However, since he began sharing his dreams, many people across the world have given him the title of Imam Al-Mahdi. These people choose to do so on their own accord, and have no connection to Muhammad Qasim. Their motivation is their own, and their opinion is based on their personal spiritual dreams about Muhammad Qasim and the truthfulness they find in Muhammad Qasim’s dreams.
Muhammad Qasim about his Divine Dreams
Some people claim and say to me that I am misleading and misguiding people by using the name of Allah SWT and Prophet Muhammad SAW. Some also say that I have made these dreams up, written them myself and I am trying to make it look like I am Imam Mahdi. Likewise, some people say that I am a liar and my dreams are not true.
I do not want to make it look like I am Imam Mahdi, nor I have never claimed to be Imam Mahdi or a Messenger. I am not even a scholar, or a cleric, I am a simple, common man and I do not seek reward from anyone for what I say. Prophet Muhammad SAW is the last messenger of Allah and the Mercy of Allah is for everyone. I just want to be a friend of Allah, that is all my intention.
My dreams are from Allah Rabbil Alamin and I have tried my best to narrate them exactly as what I have seen. Only Allah SWT can make these dreams into reality and I ask for Help from Allah only. Allah alone is sufficient for me, and Allah is my Wakeel.
I do not force anyone to believe in these dreams, everyone has their right to exercise their judgement about this. I am only sharing these dreams with everyone because I have been instructed by Allah SWT and Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Who is Imam Al-Mahdi
Imam Al-Mahdi, is a term given to a mystical identity in the prophesies made by Prophet Muhammad SAW. “Imam”, meaning leader, and “Al-Mahdi”, meaning the guided one, has been narrated through the Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad SAW as the saviour of mankind who will be sent by Allah SWT closer to apocalypse/qiyamah/end of times.
Prominent Hadiths about Imam Al-Mahdi
“The world will not come to pass until a man from among my family, whose name will be my name, rules over the Arabs.” – Prophet Muhammad (Tirmidhi Sahih, Vol. 9, P. 74; Abu Dawud, Sahih, Vol. 5, P. 207; also narrated by Ali ibn Abu Talib, Abu Sa’id, Umm Salma, Abu Hurayra)
“Allah will bring out from concealment al-Mahdi from my family and just before the day of Judgment; even if only one day were to remain in the life of the world, and he will spread on this earth justice and equity and will eradicate tyranny and oppression.” – Prophet Muhammad (Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Vol. 1, P. 99)
“Even if only a day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet Allah will surely send a man from my family who will fill this world with such justice and fairness, just as it initially was filled with oppression.” – Prophet Muhammad (Abu Dawood)
“The promised Mahdi will be among my family. God will make the provisions for his emergence within a single night.” – Prophet Muhammad (Ibn Majah, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 519)
“A group of my Ummah will fight for the truth until near the day of judgment when Jesus, the son of Mary, will descend, and the leader of them will ask him to lead the prayer, but Jesus declines, saying: “No, Verily, among you Allah has made leaders for others and He has bestowed his bounty upon them.” – Prophet Muhammad (Sahih Muslim)
Why is the topic of Imam Al-Mahdi relevant today?
Many Muslim religious scholars and ullamas are of the opinion that the time of End of the world/Qiyamah is close and that the minor signs of Qiyamah, as extracted through the Hadiths’ of Prophet Muhammad SAW and hints from the Quran, are already fulfilled. Some ullamas have even claimed that Imam Al-Mahdi is already born and living amongst us. Arrival of Imam Al-Mahdi is one of the first major signs of End of the World/Qiyamah.
