Hazrat Mahdi (as) will never shed blood
As Allah commands, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will never shed blood
Many events involving politics and across the world ever since the 1980s have been taking place in line with the systems of the Mahdi and the Messiah. Since 1980 (Hijri 1400) the Islamic world has been awaiting the explicit coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as foretold in the hadiths of our Prophet (saas), the verses of the Qur’an and statements by great Islamic scholars. In the light of information in the Torah and the Gospels, these same dates are when the Jews await the coming of the King Messiah [in other words, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] and Christians the return of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh).
To date, and particularly involving certain evangelicals and misinformed Muslims, a most mistaken policy has been followed due to a belief that the movements of the Mahdi and the Messiah will shed blood and that there will be a great battle between Muslims and the People of the Book. The role of evangelicals in American foreign policy in particular led to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan in the time of the previous U.S. administration and to the shedding of the blood of millions of innocent Muslims as well as Europeans and Americans. Some evangelicals, Christians belonging to various denominations and a number of Jews, albeit a very low one, believe that this bloodshed will grow and intensify and foresee a great battle between Muslims and the People of the Book. The way that some people with low levels of knowledge in the Islamic world depict Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as someone who will shed blood and ruthlessly slaughter Shiites, Wahabbists, Jews and Christians will obviously further encourage such expectations.It is impossible for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to engage in any conflict, encourage any fighting or shed any blood, BECAUSE ALLAH HAS COMMANDED HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh) NOT TO SHED BLOOD. HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh) WILL ACT IN THE LIGHT OF THE MORAL VALUES AND COMMANDMENTS REVEALED BY ALLAH TO OUR PROPHET (SAAS) AND WILL ABIDE BY THE QUR’AN AND THE HADITHS. Our Prophet (saas) has revealed in detail the path that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) must follow, the methods he must apply in order to bring about the dominion of Islamic moral values, and how he must behave in what situations. It is Almighty Allah Who provided our Prophet (saas) with this information, by way of the angel Gabriel who imparted it. Therefore, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will act in the light of Allah’s commands in every step he takes, every decision he makes and everything he does. ALLAH'S COMMAND TO HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh) IS "THAT HE SHOULD NOT PERMIT ONE DROP OF BLOOD TO BE SHED, THAT HE SHOULD NOT ALLOW ANYONE’S NOSE EVEN TO BLEED, THAT HE CANNOT WAKEN THE SLEEPER AND THAT HE MUST ACT WITH GENTLENESS, WARMTH AND KINDNESS.”
The fact is, however, that EVERYONE WHO EXPECTS BLOODSHED IN THE NEXT PART OF THE END TIMES ARE MAKING A SERIOUS ERROR. NEITHER THE PROPHET JESUS (pbuh) NOR HAZRAT MAHDI (pbuh) WILL EVER SHED BLOOD. ON THE CONTRARY, THEY WILL CAUSE THE MORAL VALUES OF THE RELIGION TO PREVAIL WITH LOVE, AFFECTION, GENTLE WORDS AND COMPASSION. On this subject, evangelicals and those Muslims who regard the People of the Book as the enemy are seriously mistaken.
The command not to shed blood, is a command given to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) by our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), it is a strict directive. As the necessity of this command of our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will never shed blood in any period of his life. Anyone who acts otherwise, that is anyone who sheds blood, in spite of the strict directive of our Prophet (saas) is definitely not the Mahdi (pbuh).
Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will shed not one drop of blood and
will not awaken the sleeper
Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is someone who avoids war, a man of peace. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will cause the moral values of the Qur’an to rule the world through love, not through war. The fact that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will bring about the rule of the moral values of the deen [the religion of Islam] through peace and love, which represents one of his main distinguishing features, is described as follows in the hadith:
Our Prophet (saas) tells us that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will put an end to strife, war and conflict by waging an intellectual campaign against all these. We are told in hadith that in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) all weapons will fall silent and wars will come to an end, and that peace, love and justice will rule the world following the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh):As indicated in the reference to the “burden of war,” all forms of violence, oppression, fighting and conflict will come to an end at this time. In total contrast to the system of the antichrist, therefore, the system of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be a compassionate, well-intentioned and rational one based on human love and respect. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will establish justice across the world, yet“not one drop of blood will be spilled.” His time will be one that reflects true peace and love.
