The Ahmadi Religion of Peace & Light

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan Is the Yamani

Learn more about how Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) fulfilled the prophecies of the Yamani

If you look around the world today, you will see dishonesty, treachery, immorality, destruction, chaos, disaster, war, and disease.  This is our world.     What are the signs of the end times, if not the fruit of the influence of darkness in this world? As we approach the end of days, the end of this current era, his power is reaching its peak. Doesn’t it seem like darkness has almost eclipsed the light? But the end of this darkness is near. The prophets and messengers taught that the death of one era signals the beginning of a new one. The world will be reborn. And this shift is catalysed by the appearance of a world saviour, who will vanquish the darkness and restore the world to goodness.

The question is: who will save the world?  The truth is, it is not just one man.

Islamic narrations mention that the Mahdi will emerge in the end times.  Muslims all around the world are waiting for the Mahdi, who they believe is the promised saviour of mankind. But, did you know that, according to the narrations, the Mahdi will not come alone? 

The narrations make it clear that the mahdi will appear only after another figure has gone before him and called towards his matter.  This figure is known as “the Yamani”.

The Appearance of the Yamani Precedes the Appearance of Imam Al-Mahdi

The Ahlul Bayt (pbut) list the Yamani as one of the inevitable signs, before the appearance of the Mahdi. Imam Jafaar Al Sadiq (pbuh) said:

“Before the appearance of al-Qa’im there will be five signs; the rising of as-Sufyani, the rising of al-Yamani, a cry from the Heaven, killing the pure innocent man and sinking in the desert.”

Ghaibat Nomani, Ch. 14, Hadith 9

The appearance of the Yamani does not just signal the appearance of the Mahdi, he plays a pivotal role. The Yamani alerts the world that the Mahdi is here, before the people even lay eyes on him. He, alone, calls people to the truth.

Imam Muhammed Al-Baqir (pbuh) said: “There is no banner more guided than the banner of the Yamani. It is the Banner of Guidance because it calls you to Imam Al-Mahdi. When the Yamani appears, he will forbid the selling of weapons for all the people and for the Muslims as well. And when the Yamani rises, you are to join him because his banner is the banner of guidance. It is not permissible for any Muslim to turn away from him and whoever does will be from the people of hell because he calls to the truth and to the straight path.”

-Ghaiba alNu’mani p. 264, Door.14

So it is obligatory for people to follow the Yamani. And yet, we find this narration: Imam al Sadiq (pbuh) said:

“Oh mufaddal every allegiance before the reappearance of the Qa’em, then its allegiance is kufr and hypocrisy and deceiving, may God curse the one who receives the bay’ah (allegiance) and the one who gives it.”

-Bihar Al Anwar Vol 8 Pg 53.

How can this be? The answer is a long hidden secret, revealed only by the Yamani himself.

Ahmed Al-Hassan is Described in the Narrations About the Yamani

“The Qa’em (Riser) shall have two names; one is hidden while the other is announced. The one announced is Muhammed, while the one hidden is Ahmad”.

– Kamal Al-Din, part 2 page 653 item 57.

No one understood the meaning of this narration until the beholder of the hidden name came forth and explained it. There is a person who comes before the mahdi and calls people to follow him. That person is the Yamani. The revealed name, Muhammed, is Muhammed al Mahdi. And the hidden name, Ahmed, is the name of the Yamani

This is just the first of many narrations which verify Ahmed Al Hassan’s identity in startling detail. Did you know that, according to narration, the first Ansar of Imam Mahdi is from Basra? Imam Ali (pbuh) said in a sermon:

“Shall I specify for you (Imam Mahdi’s) men and their number?” We said: Yes O Prince of the Believers. He said: “I heard the Prophet of Allah say, the First of them is from Basra and the last of the is from Yamama.”

-(Malahim wal Fitan p.146 (or p.289), Door.77; Mu’juam Ahadith al-Imam alMahdi, vol.3 p.104, Hadith.647)

And the first Mahdi is the first from the 313, and he is from al-Basra, on his cheek is a mark and on his forehead is dandruff. His body is similar to the body of Moses the son of Imran . Also on his back is the seal of Prophethood and in Him, the Will of the Prophet  is carried out, he is the most knowledgeable from all creation, after the Imams, in the Quran, Torah, and the bible. Moreover, at the beginning of his appearance, he will appear as a young man. The Prophet Muhammed said: (…then he mentioned a young man and he said, “if you see him pay allegiance to him because he is the vicegerent of the Mahdi).

-Besharat Al’ Islam p. 30.

Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) was born in Basra, Iraq on the 21st of March, 1968 and lived there throughout his life. So it is an established fact that Ahmed from Basra will be with the Mahdi. But are there any proofs, which verify his role? In fact, there are many. The name Ahmed even appears in the final will and testament of Prophet Muhammed (pbuhahf).

Ahmed Al-Hassan is named in the Will of Prophet Mohammed (pbuhhahf)

“O Father of Al Hassan, bring me a pen and paper,” then he started dictating his will to Ali “O Ali, there will be twelve Imams and after them, there will be twelve Mahdis. You, O Ali, are the first of the twelve Imams, and he dictated his will until he came to a position where he completed mentioning the 12 Imams then he said: If the day of death comes to him (Al-Hassan), let him hand the will over to his son, Muhammed the Preserver of the Holy Family of Muhammed, Peace be upon them all. These are the twelve Imams. Then there will be twelve Mahdi’s after them. Then when the day of death comes to him, let him hand the will over to his son, the first of the close ones, he has three names, one like mine and my Father’s: Abdullah (Servant of God), Ahmad, and the third name is The Mahdi (the guided) and he is the first Believer.”

– Bihar Al-Anwar Vol. 53 p. 147/ Al-Ghayba Al-Tusi p. 150

Out of all the narrations in all of the books, this is the only complete version of Prophet Muhammed’s will. And Ahmed Al Hassan (pbuh) is the only person in history to come forth and claim it. On his deathbed, many centuries ago, the Prophet left this will hoping that you, in this day and age would find it. And it is a promise from Ahlul Bayt that the Holy Will is protected against false claimants.

Imam Al Sadiq (pbuh) said: ”Verily this matter is not claimed except by its owner or else God cuts short his life.”

Al Kafi Vol 1 Page 372.

Ahmad Al-Hassan is the name of the first Mahdi and Abdullah Hashem is the name of the second Mahdi.  And they have come forth and claimed the will together.

They are mentioned in the following narration:

Imam Al-Baqir (pbuh) said: “God Almighty has a treasure in Talqan, neither gold nor silver, twelve thousand in Khurasan. Their slogan is “Ahmed Ahmed” led by a young man from Hashim’s sons riding a gray mule, a red headband on him, as if I am looking at him cross the Euphrates. So if you hear about that, rush to him, even if you had to crawl over snow.”

-Montakhab AlAnwar Almodi’a, page 343

Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) has the Banner of Ahlul-Bayt

Imam Ali (pbuh) once said: “Verily we, Ahlul Bayt have a banner, whoever goes ahead of it have renegaded, and whoever is late to it have perished, and whoever follows it has followed [us], it is written in it: “Allegiance is to Allah!”

Since the beginning of his call, Imam Ahmed Al Hassan raised the banner, which read, “Allegiance is to Allah!” first a white flag with green writing, and today a black flag with yellow writing and it is the only banner on earth with such a statement.

There is a Hadith which talks about “12 confusing banners” which will appear in the end times. The banner of the Qaim is the black banner. Another banner is the banner of the Sufyani, which according to narration, will be a red standard. (show footage of King Abdullah raising the red flag). It is said that the Sufyani and the Yamani will appear simultaneously, “in one year, in one month, in one day” Imam Ahmed al Hassan (pbuh) announced his call in the year 1999, the same year, in which, the Sufyani came to power. Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan has revealed the identity of this famous end times character, is King Abdullah of Jordan. And Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) has revealed much greater things as well.

Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) Has Revealed the Matter of Imam Mahdi’s Lineage

God given knowledge is a proof upon the people for God’s vicegerent. Doesn’t the Quran say that God taught Adam the names of all things? (Holy Quran 30:31). This means God gave to Adam from his knowledge. Divinely inspired knowledge is an attribute of God’s vicegerent. It is also a characteristic of the Riser who, according to narration, will reveal great mysteries, including the matter of the return.

“He asked Aba Abdillah about the great matter of the return. So he (pbuh) said: ‘these things which you ask about, the time of it hasn’t come yet. And Allah (swt) said: they have belied what they have no knowledge of and its interpretation has not come yet.’”

For centuries, people have misinterpreted the return to mean the resurrection of physical bodies from the grave. But Imam Ahmed Al Hassan (pbuh) has revealed that this is a return, not of the body, but of the soul through reincarnation. And he, himself, is one of the returned. Ahmed Al Hassan is the reincarnation Imam Al Hussein (pbuh).

Ahmed Al Hassan, the Riser, is the only person to explain this matter.

Imam Al Sadiq (pbuh) said: “Verily, Allah chose between the souls in the Shadows, then made it enter the bodies. So when our Qaim emerges, he inherits the brother whom Allah chose in the shadows. And he does not inherit the brother from the physical birth. Know him from that, and whoever does, there remains no further proof.”

-Al Haft Al-Shareef.

The Qaim, Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) is now using this as a proof upon you. There are narrations, which refer to Imam Mahdi’s children. And Ahmed Al-Hassan has said, “I am the first of the twelve Mahdis from the sons of Imam Mahdi.” But in terms of physical lineage, Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) is the son of Ismaeel Salih, not a physical descendant from Imam Mahdi. But he is the son of Imam Mahdi (pbuh) in a different way.

Once, Imam Ahmed Al Hassan was asked about the narration which says that Al-Hussein comes out with the Imam who does not have a lineage he replied: “The narration is true, and it is about Imam Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan, and he does not have a lineage from his seed.” And he explained that every human being has a father in this physical world, also every soul has a father, and that the father in the world of the souls is not necessarily the father in this physical world. Those a hadiths which mention the ‘children’ of Imam Mahdi refer to his ‘spiritual children,’ one of which is Imam Al Hussain.

According to multiple narrations, Imam Al Hussain will return to the world in the end times.

Imam Al-Sadiq (pbuh) said: “The first one who the earth will split for and he comes back to the physical world is Al-Hussain bin Ali (pbut), and the return is not a general one, but it is a special one, nobody comes back except whom was absolute and pure with faith, or absolute and pure with disbelief.”

Mukhtasar Basair Al-Darajat, p24.

According to narration, Imam Al Hussain will Bury Imam Mahdi, upon his death.

Abu Abdullah (pbuh) said: “And Al-Hussein (pbuh) will come forth among his companions who were killed with him, and he will have with him seventy men, as they were dispatched with Moses son of Imran (pbuh), so the Qa’im (pbuh) will push forth the ring for him, so Al-Hussein (pbuh) will be the one who gives him Ghusl, shroud him, do Hunut to him, and place him in his grave.”

Ghaybat Al-Toosi, page 478.

This narration proves that Imam Hussain is the vicegerent of Imam Al-Mahdi. Imam Al-Hussain is Ahmed Al-Hassan, the Yamani and the first mahdi. And now that he has appeared, he will turn the world turn on its head.

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan Is the Yamani

It is nothing short of a miracle that one man came along at this exact moment in history and fulfilled every single prophecy. Not only that, but he came forth with the knowledge to explain many prophecies, which had baffled people for centuries.

Imam Al Baqir (pbuh) said: “We describe the companion of the matter with a description that not one of the people has. So he said: “No By Allah! It shall not be that at all until he himself holds it as an alibi against you, and calls you to him.”

-Gaibat Al Numani p.377
