The appearance of false mahdis is a sign of the end times
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated June 13th, 2014
(Reader’s letter) Master, how will we recognize Mahdi (pbuh) if he is currently present in the world? How will we discern him from false mahdis?
False mahdis will establish another sign for the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi in his time. People claiming to be Jesus will come forth in scores. These will not be harmful, because such people are inoffensive and deranged; rather they will be useful. And our brother asks how he will single out the true Mahdi (pbuh). God will reveal that knowledge in your heart. God will inspire us and that is how we sense and understand: It will be clear, like seeing the Moon or the Sun but we will still not declare that person to be the Mahdi. Yet, we will feel that opinion.
The particular quality of the Mahdi is his affectionate personality. Mahdi is the one who establishes peace and love. You need to distance yourself from the aggressors and abstain from those advocating bloodshed.
