Who is Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace)?

 

HIS LINEAGE

Abdullah Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) is the son of Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (From Him is Peace) and the grandson of Imam Al-Mahdi (From Him is Peace) in the soul world.

HIS RANK

Abdullah Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) is the second of the twelve Mahdis, whose name was mentioned in the Holy Will of Prophet Muhammad (pbuhahf).

 

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuhahf), on the night of his death,  said to Ali ibn Abi Talib:

“O Father of Al-Hassan, bring me a pen and a paper’, so the Messenger of Allah (pbuhahf) dictated his Will until he came to this position where he said: ‘O Ali, there will be twelve Imams after me and after them there will be twelve Mahdis. So you, O Ali, are the first of the twelve Imams, Allah The Exalted has named you in His heavens Ali Al-Mortadha (Ali the Content), Amirul Mo’mineen (the Commander of the Believers), Al-Siddiq Al-Akbar (the Greater Truthful), Al-Farouq Al-A’tham (the Greater Judge and Differentiator between truth and falsehood), Al-Ma’moun (the Trusted), and the Mahdi (the Rightly Guided). These names may not be attributed to other than you. O Ali, you are my Vicegerent/Guardian on my own family, their living and their dead, and upon my women: Whomever I kept, she shall find me tomorrow, and whomever I divorced, I am innocent of her, I will not see her and she will not see me on the Day of Resurrection. And you are my Successor (Khalifa) on my nation after me. If death comes to you, hand it over to my son Al-Hassan, the Righteous and Benevolent. Then if death comes to him, let him hand it over to my son Al-Hussein, the Martyr, the Pure and Murdered. If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, the Master of Worshippers, Dhul Thafant (the one with hard skin on his knees) Ali. If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Muhammad Al-Baqir (the Revealer of Knowledge). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ja’far Al-Sadiq (the Truthful). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Musa Al-Kadhim (the Patient). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ali Al-Ridha. If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Muhammad Al-Thiqa Al-Taqqi (the Trustworthy, the God-Fearing). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ali Al-Nasih (the Advisor). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Al-Hassan Al-Fadhil (the Meritorious). If death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Muhammad the Safeguarded of the Family of Muhammad, peace be upon them. Those are the twelve Imams. Then there will be twelve Mahdis after him, so if death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, the first of the close ones, he has three names, one like mine and my father’s and it is Abdullah (Servant of God), and Ahmad (the Praised), and the third name is Al-Mahdi (the Guided) and he is the first of the believers.”

THE “MINBAR” OF EGYPT

Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) has fulfilled important prophecies, such as the following:

The Ahlulbayt (pbut) stated long ago, that leading up to the appearance of the Riser from the Family of Muhammad, a “Minbar” or platform would be built in Egypt, in order to call the people to him.

“Abaya Al-Asady said, I heard the Prince of Believers (pbuh) saying, ‘I shall build in Egypt a platform, and I shall destroy Damascus brick by brick, and I shall take out the Jews and the Christians from all the lands of the Arabs, and I shall drive the Arabs with this staff of mine’ He was asked: ‘It is as if you are saying you shall come to life after your death?’ The Imam (pbuh) responded: ‘Wait O Abaya, you have taken it in another way, a man from me shall do it.”

– Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, 3rd ed., v.53, p.60, hadith 47

– Ma’ani Al-Akhbar, Muhammad ibn Ali Babawayh ‘Al-Sadooq’, 2nd ed., p.406, hadith 82

 

“… and the Grand Truthful walks with the banner of guidance and the sword of Zulfiqar … He then walks to Egypt and steps up on his platform and preaches the people, so the land is given the glad tidings of justice, and the sky is given its water drops, and the trees their fruit, and the earth its plants … and he throws knowledge into the hearts of the believers, so no believer needs what his brother possesses of knowledge. At that time the interpretation of the verse occurs {“Allah will enrich each [of them] from His abundance}” (Holy Quran, An-Nisa verse 130).

Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, 3rd ed., v.53, p.85-86

– Mo’jam Ahadeeth Al-Imam Al-Mahdi, Ali Al-Korani, 1st ed., v.5, p.82-83, hadith 1504

– Bisharat Al-Islam, Mostafa ibn Ibrahim Al-Kathemi, 1st ed., p.100

 

The above narration clarifies that the platform of Al-Mahdi is prepared before his appearance, by the chosen ones of Egypt.

In 2008, Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) migrated back to his home country Egypt. In 2011, he gathered the Ansar of Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (From Him is Peace) from around the world and single-handedly built a media platform, through which the believers produced and spread videos and media about the Call of Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (From Him is Peace) to all four corners of the world.

There is no other media platform, built in Egypt, calling people to support Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuhahf). The prophecy was fulfilled by Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) alone.

Remember, in the narration, Imam Ali (pbuh) stated that a man from him builds the Platform of Egypt. That man was the second Mahdi, Abdullah Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace).

“Umm Al-Mo’meneen Mariam narrated that she has been given the glad tidings of the Islam of Egypt, and that Islam won’t go out of Egypt until the Day of Religion… And she has known that the Minbar of The Greater Mahdi in the End Times is in Egypt, and the one who paves the way for him is a man whose courage is iron and his heart is strong, Allah opens for him the openings of the knowledgeable ones, and He inspires to him the inspirations of the Muhaditheen…”

– What Imam Ali (pbuh) said about the End Times, Sayyed Ali Ashour, p.328, hadith 501

When Abdullah Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace) gathered the believers and built the Platform of Egypt, it was not yet known that he is, in fact, the second Mahdi and another important figure mentioned in the narrations of the Ahlulbayt (pbut): the Companion of Egypt.

 

THE COMPANION OF EGYPT

Narrations describe the Companion of Egypt in the following way:

“The Companion of Egypt is the sign of signs, and his sign is wondrous with signs to it, his heart is Hassan (Good) and his head is Muhammad and he changes the name of his grandfather. If he emerges, then know that the Mahdi will knock on your doors. So before he knocks, fly to him in the domes of the clouds or come to him crawling on ice.”

What Imam Ali (pbuh) said about the End Times, Sayyed Ali Ashour, p.330, hadith 505

“No one recognizes him while he is with them …. he is patient, the patience of the Awliyaa’ (the Preferred Ones of Allah), and he raises the Black Banner. By God, the One who split the seed, he is the one who paves the way for the Mahdi.”

What Imam Ali (pbuh) said about the End Times, Sayyed Ali Ashour, p.328, hadith 500

This is a perfect description of Aba Al-Sadiq (From Him is Peace).

As he built the Platform of Egypt and gathered the believers from all over the world, nobody recognized that he was the Companion of Egypt. His faith and courage inspired people from all nations to believe in the promise of God. He is the one who announced to the world, from the Platform of Egypt, that Imam Al-Mahdi (From Him is Peace) and Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (From Him is Peace) have emerged from their occultation with the Black Banners of the East.

It is a promise from the Ahlulbayt (pbut) that Aba Al-Sadiq, the faithful Companion of Egypt, will bring salvation for the people.

Imam Ali (pbuh) said: “… Then the Companion of Egypt will emerge from a long disappearance and silence, he opens the Cave of Secrets and calls out “Revenge, Revenge!”, and he paves the way for the Mahdi. Verily, the people are with the rulers and the world (dunya) and religion is with the strangers, so glad tidings to them, until the Mahdi of the Ahlulbayt comes out for them …”

What Imam Ali (pbuh) said about the End Times, Sayyed Ali Ashour, p.329, hadith 503
