Signs of the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (Part 3)

imam mahdi (a.s)

3- Sun comes to a halt

The written notes of Seyed Ismail Aqili can be a further confirmation in supporting the words of Imam Sadiq (A.S) on change in the direction of Sun’s rotation, , which we explained earlier as backward rotation of the earth. He has written about the signs of the reappearance of Imam Mahdi: Among the signs is the halt of the Sun in the middle of the sky from high noon until late afternoon without having any movement. This is a confirmation to the change in the movements of the cosmic bodies (3) and there are comments by the historians about the following verse of the Qur’an:

”If We please, We should send down upon them a sign from the heaven so that they would bend their necks in humility.”‌ [The Holy Qur’an, 26:4]

Abu Bsir says: ”Commenting on the said verse, Imam Sadiq (A.S) said: ”Very soon God will do so about them,”‌ I said: Who are they? He said: ”they are Bani Umayyad and their companions;”‌ I asked what are those signs?

Imam Sadeq (A.S) said:  ”The halt of the Sun between noontime till late afternoon and the appearance of a person-whose lineage is known and whose face up to his chest could be seen in the Sun. This event shall happen in period of Sefyani, when Sefyani and his companion shall be killed.”‌   

Imam Sadiq (A.S) said: ”there are five signs which will appear before the reappearance of Imam Mahdi: ”

1- A heavenly call: ”his Holiness will enter Mecca and appear on the side of Kaba, and prior to sunrise  the caller shall make an announcement that can be heard by everyone on the earth and heavens,”‌ he says: 

”O people! Bear in mind that this is Mahdi of the Household of Muhammad (PBUH).”‌ He shall be called with his name and the title of his forefather Prophet (PBUH) of Islam.

2- Sefyani: He shall rise in a desert which is located between Mecca and Al-Sham (Damascus). Sefyani is an ugly man, broad-shouldered, blue-eyed and has a face with scars of smallpox; his name is ”Usman ibn Anbasa”‌ who is one of the children of Yazid bin Muawiyah; he shall capture Damascus, Homs, Palestine, Jordan and Qansarin cities.

3- The Sefyani army shall disintegrate in a desert between Mecca and Medina. He has an army of about 300,000 men. Eventually Sefyani shall be killed by the army of Imam Mahdi in Bait-ul-Muqaddas (Jerusalem).

4- Zakyah is a boy from the dynasty of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who will be martyred between Roknm and Magham.

5- Yamani: The uprising of Yamani shall happen in Yemen. Some records show that Yamani, Khorasani and Sefyani shall rise at the same time (in a certain day of a month and a certain year). Among them, Yamani shall lead the people to God. (4)
