Say thou (O Muhammad) "This is my way, I do invite unto Allah on an insight clear as the seeing with one’s eyes, I and the one who followeth me. Glory be to Allah! and I am not of the polytheists!" Al-Qur’an 12/108

Al-Qur'an 7:205   "And do thou (O Muhammad) remember thy Lord within thyself humbly and with awe, below thy breath, at morn and evening. And be not thou of the neglectful."
Declaration of faith. A person must recite the shahadah to convert to Islam. The shahadah in Islam is: "I testify that there is no god but Allah and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."

"In the name of God, The Compassionate, The Merciful; Praise be to God; the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds; The Compassionate, The Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship, and thine aid do we seek. Show us the straight way; The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, Those whose portion is not wrath, And who go not astray."


According to Islamic theology "Mehdi" means 'the divinely guided one' or 'the directed one'. Prophet Mohammed (S.A.S), the last of the prophets, informed that Allah will send His Caliph in the Ummah of Mohammed (S.A.S), to invite people towards right path. It was prophesied by Mohammed (S.A.S) that; an illustrious son from his progeny would appear after him who would establish the just and true religion as it was in his own time. Prophet Mohammed (S.A.S) foretold about the advent of Mehdi (the promised) through his various traditions. A few traditions (Hadiths) are given below.

1. Ibn Abbas (R) is quoted as saying:
The Prophet (pbuh) said, how would my folks (Ummah) be perished when I am at its beginning, Jesus, the son of Mary, is at its end and the Mehdi from my progeny is in the middle. (Musnad of Imam Ahmed, and Kanz-ul-Ummal)

2. Sauban (R) quoted another tradition as follows:
The Prophet of Allah (S.A.S) said, " For your treasure (throne) of Khilafat, there would be a fight between aspirants of Khilafat but none would get it. Then from the east people bearing black flags would appear, and they would massacre you as none would have done before. But no one would defeat them. Then the Caliph of Allah, the Mehdi, would appear. If you hear about him, go to him and make covenant (Ba'ith) with him even if you would have to crawl on ice for that purpose, as he be the Caliph of Allah"; (Ibn Maja)

3. The Prophet (S.A.S) once said that even if a day remained for the end of this world, Allah would prolong the day unless and until, from the progeny of my house (Ahl-e-Baith) a person is born whose name would be my name, whose father would have the name of my father and who would fill the world with justice as it would be full of atrocities. He would equally distribute wealth and would enrich the hearts of believers. He would survive for seven or nine years.

4. Shaik Mohiuddin Ibn-e-Arabi quoted a tradition in his book "Futuhat-al- Makkiya" that the Prophet (S.A.S) said ;" Mehdi is from me; he will follow my footsteps without err.
