Michael, being “time”, had the longest chapter in the Quran dedicated to him. Aba Al-Sadiq (fhip) said, “This is one of the great secrets.” Everyone believes that the translation of the chapter in the Quran “Al-Baqarah” is “the Cow”. However, one of its inner meanings is “time” and the entire chapter is dedicated to Archangel Michael.
Michael (pbuh) is one of the great Archangels, he has a close rank to his Lord and he is from the closest and noble angels.
– He is in charge of rain and plants.
– He is the patron Angel of Israel.
– Michael was sent in this day and age by Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Daniel and the others.
Today he is Ahmed Murad (pbuh), one of the 12 [men].
Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip) revealed that Archangel Michael had incarnated in the past. There has not passed a time except that he was present in it. In the time of Prophet Abraham, Jesus, Moses, Noah, Adam, Joseph and Imam Al-Hussain (pbut). He was with absolutely everyone. He is the Companion of Allah whom has never separated from him. The friend Michael. The loyal, devout companion of all the prophets and messengers and righteous ones.
“One of his characters is the Archangel Michael (pbuh).” – Al-Haft Al-Shareef, Al Mufaddal ibn Umar Al-Ja’fi, door 65, p.114
Michael (pbuh) incarnated as Abel the son of Adam (pbuh), the first martyr.
He also incarnated at the time of Moses (pbuh), as his faithful brother, Aaron (pbuh).
Michael incarnated as one of the seven sleepers of the cave, named Maximilianos.
In the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuhahf) he incarnated as Salman the Mohammedan (pbuh) [Salman the Persian ‘Salman Al-Farisi’]
Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip) said: “When the command came for the look alike to be crucified, Michael did not accept that the look alike be crucified alone. So he decided to be crucified with him and this was his sacrifice. And Michael was the righteous believer who was crucified next to him.
And in the time of Joseph, he was the one who guided Joseph to do such and such. Like building safe houses and revealing deceivers and other things. He would guide and direct Joseph and no one saw him except for Joseph.”
And Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip) said: “Michael is a son of Muhammad (pbuhahf) in the Soul World. Michael is a brother of Mary and Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip) in the Soul World.” Michael has four children in the soul world, from them are: Aba Al Hassan, Al Yaman and Al Hamam.
He was nicknamed by Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuhahf) ‘The Gatherer’. He is the one who gathers the 313.
If Ahmed Murad appeared to the people or if the people heard his voice, every believer and non believer would say, “I know that person.” And whoever hears his voice would say, “I heard that voice before.” He is the one whom Imam Mahdi (pbuhahf) said: “By Allah if it were not for you, the truth would not be shown nor would falsehood be destroyed.”
